  1. We have DL to spare and he isn't going to be worth what another team will pay him. If there is a second or third round pick he should be traded away. Let some other team figure out how to get better than average performance out of him this year.
  2. This is a lot of gnashing of teeth for nothing. Rex said he wanted the job. I think he would take any HC job available and he said that people would line up for the job--including him. This is not a big deal. The line in the story that he is begging for the job is not substantiated beyond quoting these far less than begging comments made on TV. I'm not sure any team puts Rex back in as head coach but he could probably get back as a defensive coordinator in college or pro if he wanted. Instead it seems like he enjoys being a personality on TV and maybe he would rather have the cushy job on TV over long hours and stress of coaching any position below head coach. If we can be honest about things Rex is a lot of fun to watch run his mouth when losses are not on the line which makes him great for the job he is doing right now.
  3. Gase has to be fairly evaluated within the circumstances. He's a handful of games into his first season with a roster most of us agreed before the season had a lot of problems with injuries at important positions. Calling for him to be fired seems premature but I can't say I have loved what I have seen so far. I have a big concern with him which grows every game and his comments after. He seems to expect a Peyton Manning at every position who can make all the adjustments before the play. The defense dropped off after Mosley went down. His comments express a belief that the QB has to control the OL on every play. The offensive playcalling is conservative like he expects Bell to design and set up his own run play before the snap. Kalil might have been brought in to make adjustments on the OL at the line to keep the zone blocking scheme functional. If true, then Gase is doing so little to install functional schemes that he should be out. Players make adjustments on the field but should not be expected to take vanilla plays and rewrite them on the field in a way that eleven players immediately know what is going on.
  4. Unless you want Douglas to come out and be punching bag for the handful of players he brought in there isn't much for him to say. He isn't firing a head coach four games into his first season. He isn't going to throw Gase under the bus. He might say he hasn't had a chance to fix the roster and he is evaluating a plan for the next offseason. Maccagnan might have been more visible but what did that visibility get us? Nothing of value.
  5. What is Darnold's incentive to rush back and risk any kind of injury? This OL is a constant danger to his health. I expect him to ride this mono train as long as possible.
  6. Even if I thought Sam needed a replacement I would still rather we trade back and build up the offense. If Sam still can't get it done then at least we have some pieces to trade up for a QB or be a semi-attractive destination for a FA QB. Get another potential franchise QB and throw him behind this line and he might pull a Luck and bounce after a couple seasons of injuries.
  7. Yeah ruined the product by discouraging players from inflicting lifelong injuries on one another in the course of playing a game. The NFL did away with these kinds of hits primarily because they needed to clean up the league's image in the early 2000s. It tried to go more family friendly and bring women in as fans who did not want to see a violent game especially with their kids out there. There were all the drug and other crime issues at the time so the league wanted to improve the image of the NFL as a family friendly game. At the same time research on the effects of concussions, especially in kids, was coming out and that was driving a lot of parents to keep their kids out of pop warner football which is a huge advertising tool to create lifelong football fans.
  8. The what if around if the Jets had drafted Russell Wilson instead of Hill are interesting. Would Wilson have done any better with the wepponz available to him on this team at the time? Could Rex get away with benching Sanchez and his giant contract for Wilson? Would Wilson have performed well enough to keep Rex in his job and if so, would the team have performed better than the 8-8 and 6-10 seasons it had with Sanchez/Geno? I think Rex would have found a way to trip over his own dick on offense short of having a QB who can act as an independent OC on the field and override Rex and his rotating cast of OCs. Wilson probably gets traded away to another team where he has better success but probably not the success he has had with Seattle.
  9. Definitely both sides are contributors. The OL roster is terrible but the staff is at least no worse than it was last year. The line as a whole is confused and plays are set up to make it easy for defenses to get right to the QB. That all comes down to the way the coaches are training the players in the system and the way the plays are designed. The only thing we can really do with the roster now is swap existing staff but the coaching work can be improved right now.
  10. How was his nonsense any worse than much of the other garbage posted in the past week?
  11. Yep send a message about poor offensive performance by cutting a defensive player who has a 100% guaranteed salary three games into the season so he can sign with another team for more money.
  12. I didn't see him play this year. Was he that bad?
  13. Gase's plays always have these players behind the LOS or just to the other side. If it is 3 and 18 there is no point in having a receiver there. Either send that player out closer to the first down marker or make him a blocker. Zero chance a player is getting 20 YAC on the patriots.
  14. Roster sucks but Gase is not changing the plays to try to maximize the players. If your OL is constantly confused with your zone block scheme then you either work aggressively with them to get it or you change the scheme. If you can't block guys coming on the edge with your zone block then you need to get them some help on plays. There's clearly a lot of confusion on the field before plays so maybe simply the scheme until the players are comfortable in it.
  15. The problem is both. Gase seems to keep running the exact same offensive scheme despite not having the players to execute it well so it is exposing the poor quality of OL performance. Gas wouldn't have to adjust as much if the roster was better but it's also his job to adjust the playbook to maximize the roster. His system is built to work with a playoff-bound team and a HOF QB who can do all the adjustments at the LOS and did not have the strength to throw bombs all day. Peyton isn't our QB and this roster is not playoff quality. It was just like Sexy Rexy and his defense. Killed teams when he had elite talent everywhere but fell apart when he didn't and needed to adjust to the roster.
  16. If he wants to keep playing outside the NFL somebody will definitely sign him; however, I expect if he is cleared to continue playing he will want to go back to the NFL and somebody will hire him. He might have to leave the game for a year to revive his image but the curve for bizarre and unlawful behavior for WRs is set so differently for other players in the league. He could come back.
  17. It is hard to believe Brown did not orchestrate a move from OAK to NE to get back on a winning team. There is no way he wants to come to the Jets if the Raiders were not good enough for him.
  18. Yeah but both teams were beating us on the edge to get to the QB so if you only look at how the interior of the line performed you are ignoring critical elements of what happened on the field.
  19. I'm not sure what value there is in trying to evaluate a new coach in his first two games in which the first was led by a QB with mono and the second by a third string QB. To the extent it has any value I am not thrilled with his planning around the O line. The O line performance is hardly affected by the QB behind it or any of the offensive injuries. If anything, the O line should have been given more help. Instead he left those edge rushers undefended. I get that his offensive scheme involves throwing out a lot of receivers and making quick passes but if the QB is not getting reasonable time to make short throws then the scheme needs to adapt. So far I haven't seen Gase do much to adapt and if he continues down that path then every team is just going to keep doing it. Forget scoring points--we will be lucky to avoid more QB injuries.
