  1. Appreciate it. Unless a miracle happens we're going to be blind going into the season because the beat writers stink covering practice
  2. His choice, but I'm hoping its a sign that he knew he couldn't beat out the WR's he was competing with for the final 2-3 spots: - Berrios - Smith - Cager - Campbell
  3. From today: https://www.newyorkjets.com/audio/adam-gase-training-camp-press-conference-8-5
  4. Children playing Pee-Wee football have way more awareness than Allen did in that game. No excuse for the decisions he made
  5. That and they would never be eligible for a big $$$ bowl game. Clemson, Alabama, LSU, Michigan and Ohio St won't do this
  6. Considering this quote from Mosley about needing to "kind of find that flame again" about football its probably good he opted out: Rich CiminiESPN Staff Writer Jets LB C.J. Mosley, commenting publicly for the first time on his decision to opt out, said he has a young son and didn't want to take any COVID-19 risks. In a Facebook Live event for the Wounded Warrior Project, Mosley called it "probably the biggest football decision I've made in a long time, probably since I picked what college I'm going to." He said he will use the time off to get better physically and mentally and "kind of find that flame again." (Via Newsday)

  8. That's what Steve McLendon is!!! Every time he speaks he encourages everyone around him and pushes them to be better: https://www.newyorkjets.com/news/jets-dl-steve-mclendon-our-mindset-doesn-t-change Despite an unprecedented offseason and the recent blockbuster trade involving S Jamal Adams, Jets DL Steve McLendon hasn't wavered from his brick-by-brick approach. "We want to stay singularly focused on the task at hand," he said. "Our mindset doesn't change no matter who's in that huddle or wearing a helmet, it doesn't change." McLendon said this offseason has been challenging, but the 34-year-old knows the recipe to prepare his body for an NFL season. In February, he opened up the TEAM MVP gym in Flowery Branch, GA and trained with a number of his teammates including DL Henry Anderson, OLB Jordan Jenkins and TE Chris Herndon. But now that the team is back in Florham Park, McLendon won't allow himself or his teammates to look down the road as they start their strength and conditioning program. "Right now, I'm just focused on the task at hand, getting through today and going into tomorrow," he said. "We can't get too far ahead because we don't even know what next week is going to hold for us. "We're all excited to be back, but we just want to get started and get on the field with each other even though we have to take the necessary steps first. It's always amazing, always a great feeling for everybody to be able to put on that jersey, that helmet one more time and not only just putting it on but doing it together." McLendon, who's entering his 11th season, is also the team's father figure. He took DL then-rookie Folorunso Fatukasi under his wing in 2018 and did the same with 2019 No. 3 overall pick Quinnen Williams last season. Fatukasi was at McLendon's gym opening and McLendon and Williams constantly communicated with one another throughout the offseason. "I just want him to be the best version of himself," McLendon said of Williams, who totaled 31 tackles, 7 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and 9 quarterback hits in 2019. "It's not my expectations, it's his expectation of himself. I don't put limitations on (any) man. I don't even put limitations on my life, so I just expect him to be the best version of Quinnen Williams that he can be." Defensive line coach Andre Carter said younger players follow McLendon because of his humble beginnings — the Troy product broke into the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2010 and each training camp is a reminder of that start. "When you're an undrafted free agent, you're scratching and clawing to try to get on the 53-man roster," Carter said. "That will and determination has never left. He always knows where his foundation of becoming an NFL football player began. Also, in general, he's a guy that loves the game. I always tell players that if you love the game and you're committed to it not just from a physical standpoint, but also to improve your psychology and improve your mental game, that's what makes you an elite football player. Mac brings that level of football IQ to the game. If there's something that's misinterpreted on my part as a coach, he's able to take the kids off to the side, the locker room and discuss football. "He's definitely the leader of the team. He's very vocal, but he lives by what he preaches and the younger players follow him."
  9. Mosley opting out definitely was a big hit. But the performance of Gregg Williams and the defensive staff last year gives me confidence in the scheme he'll come up with. Personally I think the following players will be the keys: Avery Williamson - I thought he was a luxury and expected him to be cut loose. I'm glad I was wrong, I would expect him to move into Mosley's spot and make the defensive calls. With him missing 2019 you forget how productive he was, he had a terrific 2018 https://www.espn.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/16920/avery-williamson Bradley McDougald - a durable, productive safety whose Passes Defended numbers indicate he's good in coverage. I would expect him to move into the FS spot https://www.espn.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/16269/bradley-mcdougald Marcus Maye - McDougald's arrival will free Maye to move into the "hybrid" role Adams used to play. With his FS/coverage experience Maye has a shot to actually expand the "hybrid" role into something more than a "box safety" https://www.espn.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/2980110/marcus-maye Ashtyn Davis - with McDougald and Maye being the starters it will allow Davis to come off the bench and be deployed in "3 safety looks". With Davis speed/athletic ability, the FS experience of McDougald and Maye I would expect Williams to come up with some very confusing coverage schemes. Which hopefully can generate INT opportunities https://www.nfl.com/prospects/ashtyn-davis/32194441-5616-3785-71b6-36de3d91d151 Patrick Onwuasor - I expected Onwuasor's chemistry with Mosley to be a big factor in him re-capturing his 2018 performance (5.5 sacks). That takes a hit obviously, but Onwuasor needs to find that "vibe" with Williamson who will be in Mosley's spot. His size, speed and athletic ability could be combined with the safeties and really cause offenses a problem trying to decipher coverages https://www.espn.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/2576761/patrick-onwuasor
  10. The "bras" and "watches" are body monitors
  11. If Becton puts as much work into his technique as he did into his body we'll have our Jonathan Ogden: https://www.newyorkjets.com/photos/best-photos-of-the-jets-working-out-at-training-camp That's a scary young man!!!
  12. - Bad roster - GM who didn't properly value "premium positions" - With the GM doing a poor job of roster construction he didn't "raise his voice" to ownership (remember they were on the same level) - Below average QB - Too much turnover at the OC spot - Even though he was supposed to be a disciplinarian he wasn't. On the field (too many penalties) and off (Wilkerson, Richardson, JawGate) - He turned over the defense (his biggest strength) to a poor DC - Poor game management
  13. But here are some "camp highlights" https://www.newyorkjets.com/video/watch-jets-training-camp-workout-highlights
  14. Obviously a shot at Adams and his comment about Gase not addressing the team
  15. Excellent initial impression by Becton. Weight was a big concern coming out and for him to be "that cut" after being quarantined for 3 months shows terrific discipline

  17. Pretty good money for a player who knows they won't make the team: Players at high risk of complications due to the coronavirus can opt out of the 2020 season and earn $350,000 and an accrued season toward free agency. That includes individuals with autoimmune disorders, chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes, heart issues, etc. Non-risk players can opt out of the 2020 season and earn $150,000. They do not accrue a season.
  18. Interview from 7/23 before the trade but since Douglas was working on it for a month he may have known: https://www.newyorkjets.com/video/what-does-gregg-williams-like-about-the-jets-defense-heading-into-2020
  19. The only tweets came from Bell who called him out for being two faced
  20. Where are all the "we'll miss you" Jamal tweets from his teammates???
  21. Considering Russell Wilson (Ciara) just had a kid wouldn't it be wonderful if he opted out and GENO SMITH is their starting QB. How would the diva feel with that situation?
  22. So their starting RT and their "CJ Mosley" are opting out and Brady is gone. I feel bad for them, NOT
  23. Great, now make sure there are no more "braces" on his production on the field
  24. Remember, when Scott was on WFAN Adams pulled some "diva stuff" and pulled out of their show
