  1. I'd say Petty at best no matter how well he does can just insert himself into the conversation next year to either be the Backup or compete for the starting job against a QB drafted. That should be the case. He obviously would just be the Backup right off the bat if we sign or trade for a QB with experience like a Cousins, Smith, etc. The reason why I say no matter how good he plays is other aspects in the small sample size of 3 games i.e is it enough time to see if he remains durable, games are against tough teams with something to play for but there is no real pressure on the Jets so how do you know how he plays when there is pressure on the team to win games in a playoff run, etc.
  2. You know, if Mac wants to take his preferential safe move on a QB, like BradwayJoe1 said, Mccarron should be a FA and hopefully wouldn't break the bank. If that were to occur you would most likely move on from McCown and maybe trade Petty since he has some interested teams that probably would throw a 5th or 6th rounder for him. Then still draft a QB in round 1 or 2 this year so that either him or Maccaron is the guy. We can keep Hack as the 3rd QB if he ever develops into something. We would then still have a few high draft picks at the top of the draft to build the areas of the O needed at Oline, RB, etc. We probably can then use the rest of the draft for other areas to maybe replace Mo, get more LB/CB depth, etc. This plan is safer then trading a boat load of picks to go up like 10 spots in the draft for a QB that may not pan out.
  3. Another possible QB to impact the list of teams is Smith where after the way he has fallen off somewhat, Chiefs may just hand the reins over to Mahommes(sp?) and move on from Smith. That puts him on one of those other teams either via trade or by waiver. He could end up with Jags, Washington, or even the Giants if they don't want to fully rebuild. Heck, even Arizona may want him if they don't want to rebuild. In any event, Smith is another QB in play to possibly make more QBs available in the draft for the Jets. The issue is this year is that now the blueprint provided i.e Goff, Wentz, etc. is that many teams may trade a lot to get up higher and invest in a QB even with using up multipel draft picks since those teams got big jumps in success doing that. Only thing is those are QBs at the top 1 and 2 picks, and there is not even a sure thing in this draft to be as good as them. Darnold and Rosen may not be thier equals.
  4. MNF Steelers-Benglas

    Atleast Jets have won playoff games when we were getting there. I am over 50 and the Bengals seemingly have not won a playoff game since I was born.
  5. Well, Stewart causing that dumb ST penalty for 15 yards started the Chiefs out on one of their TD drives. I played HS ball and coaches at all levels see you do stupid crap like that and then play you even less. Why does everyone think WR Marshall is still on the Psquad?. Because he makes bad decisions, fumbles, and drops passes. He is gifted like Stewart, but like the Marine commercial used to say, "to compete you must be strong, but to win you must be smart". That's why every time Gino gets a start he is one and done since you can see he just doesn't think on any consistent basis.
  6. Wild Card Question

    We would have had a much better chance of making the playoffs if not for the replay overturns that should not have occurred.
  7. Why I'm disappointed

    Jetster, You're points are well taken, but some of these lapses are explainable in the secondary to having 2 rookie safeties still learning and the 2nd CB on our team just is so far below par for Roberts and whoever else goes in there, not to mention Skrine's struggles though he played OK today. We need some CBs next year, but not at the expense for getting a QB very high in this draft. We need both.
  8. Interesting Francessa points

    If we trade away a lot of our draft resources over this and next year to get the QB, we will have to use the 80-90M in cap space starting this year to definitely at least fill several Oline positions, which many teams have done over the last few years since rookies are hard to start there esepcially at LT and C, and the past draft or two has not been greate for olineman. With the rest of the available cap space we will have to try to upgrade somewhat at WR, CB, etc. Pass rushers don't grow on trees so who knows how to address that position. This route I have stated is better than using almost half of this cap space for Cousins or Smith at QB. We all know deep down coming on our O and then not having much money left to get weapons for them and Olineman won't work and will be like the Neil O. QB deal we went through. The only way it could work is with the draft picks we save to not trade up for a QB we would have to hit on every one of them at WR, RB, 2 Olineman, CB, Edge Rusher, etc. That is just too much to ask.
  9. Jon Gruden says he may return to coaching

    flgreen, Yes, but if he could get the Jets to and Win a SB, he would be a God worldwide. If not he makes a boatload of cash. Where would the downside be?. Most would say, yea, but what about the aggrevation especially if Jets never improve. Yes, but he'd be laughing all the way to the bank with how much he'd get paid, so he'd live with it. I have just been thinking that regardless of how the rest of this season turns out, once would think that if the jets Brass see they can get a clear upgrade over Bowles, I think they would pull the trigger on it. If they can't they probably won't unless the team completely collapses and plays every game like in Tampa. If Chucky, Cower, etc. type of coaches were to be avaoable and want to take the job, I would think they would drop Bowles like a hot potato.
  10. Jon Gruden says he may return to coaching

    I don't know, show him the money. Give him a blank check and let him make all football decisions if that's what he wants. He already has ties to Morton, so he has that part in place already. At this point what have we got to lose?. I'd p!ss on a spark plug at right now to see if it works. Quite frankly I am 52 years old and really never get used to games like this past weekend where caoches and players just look (and actually say) they are "not ready to play". If any of us said that even once in our jobs like "I was not ready to work" and because of it something major went wrong, we'd be gone.
  11. Bigo's statement below is one where "What games have you been watching comes to mind": The 2 safeties have done squat. Below average play at best. You are talking about a #6 1st round pick that has made minimal impact and high #2 pick that between them have what ....1 fumble recovery and 1 interception, countless missed tackles and been burned repeatedly. I was all in on Adams but he has not impressed me in the slightest. Maye has not lived up to his #2 pick status either. There are numerous other rookie picks that are lighting up the NFL. You could have drafted 2 safeties in the later rounds that would have contributed more than these two. Adam's has 2 fumble recoveries and has several sacks and made multiple big plays along with many tackles and TFLs. Maye has 2-3 INTs and also multiple tackles and a forced fumble. Without these 2 this D is nowhere and they are like night and day compared to our safeties of the past. And this all as rookies.
  12. Skeet, if you are in the Texans division maybe. This darn AFC East where NE wins an average of 12-13 games very year, even in down years since they get 3-4 games handed to them by the refs and God knows how many more by cheating we don't yet know about, and all you are left with is the WC path to the playoffs.
  13. For Dominator, if McCown wins 1 more game the whole season to get to 5 Wins, he then one as much as $hitz did last year for half the money. I'd say that is a team friendly deal for ~6M in which he also is providing real leadership/guidance that $hitz once again didn't.
  14. Bowles and Macc have earned their extensions

    Another area we can say is lets swap out the WR Devin Smith debacle with UDFA Robby Anderson, cause that guy is flat out good.
  15. Jets Deal for Robinson Makes Perfect Sense

    We'll see if playing with Adams and Maye perhaps makes him play better especially since he played with Adams at LSU.
  16. How bad are Bowles & Rogers?

    Just my 2 cents here, but this D made plays and helped to get 14 of the points we had agains't Fins between Maye, Adams, and Mo. Digest this for a second, the O got -4 yards in the 4th qtr?. "-4" yards?. What that caused on the 2 darn TD drives Fins had were punts from our end from like the 10-15 yard line and they got the ball around the 50 yard line both times. Had we got just a little yards on each drive and punted from the 30 they would have had to drive from their 30-35 yard line and we probably hold them with our D and win. But, after what I described and 2 drives from the 50 that is exteremly tough for any D to hold back in the 4th qtr of a nearly 90 degree day with that humidity there.
  17. Pivotal Week Of The Season

    Agree with JoeWilly12. Lets stake our claim on this division, why not now?. Sure they have the better O, but our O is going against their D and theirs against our D. Lets see how that plays out as well as our STs, which have been much improved as well. Lets be loud at the stadium and be that 12th man. Lets do this. Go JETS.
  18. Jets waive Jalin Marshall

    Probably need more bodies at CB with the injuries and why have Marshall take reps away from Jets young WRs, while infesting the O/STs with drops and funbles like Marshall always does. We are ridding ourselves of that from what I see and don't need to bring it back.
  19. Key is lets hope Mac has learned something from the whole finding a QB experience. Issue is as we see with someone like Hack, he would be a pretty good QB, but he so far is missing probably the most important part, which is processing info quick enough.
  20. Guys, lets stop the BS we should have lost 2 of our games. We won them. The Pats should have lost 2 more of their games against the Texans and Bucs, but they didn't. If both Jets and Pats lost these games these 2 teams would face each other this week at 1-4 fighting to get out of last place instead of playing for 1st place. It's called a games of inches, but in the end your team has to know how to win.
  21. Patriots Oline and Front 7

    Hopefully OLB Josh Martin will also be ready to play this week.
  22. Williams Released

    One thing not considered is that the Giants lost like 4 WRs this past weekend several to serious injuries. They may bring Cruz back, but I personally am sick and tired of them getting players from us on our dime. They made out like bandits with our practice squad with multiple RBs in past years and if they want a WR they can pay us in the way of a draft pick. Perhaps Mac is thinking if they want Marshall perhaps, then cough up some loot.
  23. Bowles: Powell to Undergo Tests on Calf

    Well, I know it was with our last O, and he is not great, but Ridley was just cut by the Vikings, so Jets can get him if Powell and Forte can't go. Probably a better option then picking up the Murphy kid again who is probably too raw at this point to use since we now are getting to a point where we have something on the line other than just player development. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/10/09/vikings-activate-michael-floyd-cut-stevan-ridley/
  24. Deep thoughts

    Heck, forget 60, we played almost 70 today. All through OT this team kept fighting and willed the win. That's how you play football. Never say die.
  25. After that punt return fumble, I felt the same way Westoff felt with Clowney on STs. Cut him right on the field.
