  1. McCown says Darnold is the right QB for the job. From his lips to God's ears. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/07/08/josh-mccown-we-have-the-right-guy-in-sam-darnold/ Josh McCown: We have the “right guy” in Sam Darnold Posted by Josh Alper on July 8, 2018, 5:44 PM EDT AP Josh McCown is one of the many quarterbacks to start for the Jets as they’ve looked for long-term success at the position, but it doesn’t sound like he thinks the team will have to continue searching. McCown said at minicamp in June that rookie Sam Darnold was getting better every day and he continued to drop praise on his younger teammate during an interview on Sirius XM NFL Radio this weekend. “With Sam, we have the right guy, he’s wired the right way, he loves the game, he asks the right questions and he’s willing to work … That’s the foundation, you have to have that,” McCown said. Darnold is set to start training camp as the No. 3 man on the depth chart behind McCown and Teddy Bridgewater, but neither head coach Todd Bowles nor offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates has been reluctant to say that could change if Darnold impresses this summer. With camp starting on July 29, it won’t be too much longer before we start to find out if McCown’s right about the rookie.

    Idea For a 4-3 Front (Occasional)

    I like the older time 4 man line where the beef is in the middle i.e Williams/Simon/Fatukasi/Sheperd and for the DEs you put the bigger OLBs like Bass, Martin, Copeland, Jenkins, etc. and for depth along the line Anderson, Cooper, etc. That way with that setup on various plays the LBs will fit in well with the big MLB Williamson and Lee as the WOLB with sometimes Jenkins or Donohue as the SSLB.
  3. Well, lets go with Leggett, Wilford, Tomilson, and even if we need Bucky Brooks for now. Herndon probably is missing at least the first few games, assuming he doesn't go to jail. Charges anywhere from criminal neglegence, DWI, etc. can produce felonies though with a good lawyer those all go down to misdemeanors making them like a ticket. But, in the NFL can still be a like a 4 game suspension. They also should start these rookie contracts with severe penalties if they get into trouble like this.

  5. Jets would not talk to Giants about 2nd pick in draft due to Giants connection with Bills in link below. Good tie in with the Breer Darnold article. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/heres-the-jets-surprisingly-logical-reason-for-not-calling-giants-about-no-2-draft-pick/ This turns out the way we hope and Mac is going to get and keep getting accolades for a long time.

    Nathan Shepherd signed

    I am really hoping the UDFA OLB Luvu we picked up makes the team and we can use him as a 3rd down pass rush specialist to start. We'll go from there and see. The guy had 6.5 sacks last year in college so the potential is there, then again Gholstan(sp?) had a good amount of sacks in college as well, so we'll see, but UDFAs usually have much higher drive motivation since they are unhappy not being drafted.

    Story on Jets pursuit of Darnold

    As for Woody, maybe when he does get back he will either be perceptive to see Chris runs the team better and leave things the way they are or at worst have learned from his brother's example and do things the same way he does. Otherwise we better win a SB prior to Woody returning or we never will again, because his decision making is what holds us back.

    Is Bates The Right Coach?

    I'd say the latter. Petty Hot garbage, Hack needing more time to develop and a major project that fits the mold of the old time where a QB needs 3 years before he sees an NFL snap. Blame the college system and scenario he was in for that and of course the over value and scouting of taking him as a second rounder.

    Jets Sign Pair of UDFA Linebackers

    Finally, we see we have Luvu. Hoping he is the pass rush demon we need. Then we'll call him Frankie Lava.
  10. Just to respond to the Woody didn't name Fitz the starter before he was signed, that wasn't Mac's decision and I am sure he cringed when he heard it. I was just stating that most large moves made since Woody bought the team were pushed by him more than the GMs. Maybe that's why Parcell's couldn't get out of here quick enough once Woody bought the team.
  11. Guys, one thing to consider is lets judge all moves by Mac starting from Chris Johnson taking over ownership duties. Why, cause owners like our buddy across the pond made the decisions like Tebow, Fitz(who he pushed to bring back), Revis 2.0, etc. We all on this board have one thing in common, and that is when your boss says to do multiple things, no matter how far fetched, we either do it or are either forced to find another job or are fired. Therefore, Mac having the same trait there as we do had no choice with Woody on the large moves. Under Chris lets see what occurs. Mac made a good trade of Richardson, signed the top FA CB, and traded up and drafted Darnold, let Mo go and pulled the Suh offer, etc. as big moves under Chris Johnson. Lets judge those and other big moves like that moving forward and see if there is a difference. Regardless of outcomes they all seem to make more sense. Since Chris is no nonsense and doesn't expect flashy moves to get back page coverage like Woody, you see better decision making with those under him since as they say "it starts from the top". Some could say we didn't see moves like signing Mo would have the outcome they did, but anyone thinking Tebow, Revis 2.0, Fitz 2.0, were good moves from the getgo are not realizing those were moves doomed from the start.

    This Board Will Explode If

    Or as Lawrence Taylor said to the little kids in the movie Waterboy, "Don't smoke crack".

    I have to ask this question...

    Maybe the biggest difference isn't when a QB like this starts, but as Parcells said about Darnold is he is not a star, he is a football player. Sanchez just wanted to be a star and cared more about that than being a football player. He also only started for 1 year and Darnold has started for 2 in college.

    Boy, am I glad we didn't sign Cousins.

    Just wanted to state that both Cousins and say Mayfield in the draft were non-options. Cousins wanted the Vikings and not us at any price and Mayfield was picked 1st overall, which we had no chance of getting. Same type of scenario. So, to say it would have been better to sign Cousins and keep the draft picks is irrelevant since we had no chance of signing him.
  15. Bridgewater throwing and proclaimed healthy by Mac as shown in link below: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/05/01/teddy-bridgewater-healthy-and-throwing-mike-maccagnan-says/ I would much rather have Bridgewater starting over McCown. I know if he stays healthy it means less chance of seeing Darnold in there, but still would rather it.
