  1. Rhule: sign me as backup. I will give you some really terrible days.
  2. I don't find bringing in a vet necessary as a mentor but the team needs somebody who can run an offense in the backup role. If that's somebody who can and will provide vet insight to the rest of the QBs then great. I don't know that the two other guys are ready to do that in a game. I like the idea that we might develop a cheap backup that can be sold off after his rookie contract but in June we have no idea whether either of the non-Wilson QBs are ready to suit up as a backup and keep the offense afloat. There's still time to pick somebody up later in the offseason if needed but I am lo

  4. CJ did not come in with a plan for things to work out this way and did not steer the organization. He seemed to be more of a passenger than the driver for which the only credit he likely deserves for how things ended up is that he did not prevent it from happening--and you can only say that in hindsight knowing things maybe improved after several awful years. That's not saying much for a person running a billion dollar enterprise.
  5. I've been saying this every time it comes up but you'll never see any any kind of jet on a Jets uniform. Although the military is a huge sponsor of the NFL the NFL wants the game to be family friendly so all mascots and logos have to be family friendly (former Washington imagery aside). After 9/11 an association with passenger jets and NYC is too uncomfortable to be family friendly. The 80s Jets logo snuck in a fighter jet-ish logo and that's probably the last time any jet will make it into the logo. I don't even think the NFL would approve recycling that logo into a new one or let them opt fo
  6. I'm forty, never played professionally and still waiting for the right situation before considering retirement. This could happen.
  7. He was a fine player but I can't agree that his performance with the Jets was worth $21MM/year for what he was being asked to do here. By your own description his "job was to set the table for the linebackers" but you don't need to pay out the fifth highest DL salary for somebody playing a support role. He might be worth $21MM in the right position but he wasn't put in a position to put $21MM worth of performance on the field with this team. If you pay playmaking salaries to people in support roles--no matter how good they might be--you're going to have every other player demanding the s
  8. I don't know why the team would need two highly paid safeties given the many needs across the board.
  9. This is fine. Every new head coach tends to want to bring a few guys over who know the system which makes sense. This isn't a bad signing and if it helps Saleh get his system installed quickly it's well worth the cost to bring him on board.
  10. I find him inauthentic and as annoying as his cultish fanbase. It was annoying to have his Florida fanbase pretend to be Jets fans as much as it was having people who have barely ever watched football proclaim the only reason you could think Tebow was lousy in the NFL was because you hate Christians. Oh boy. He was lousy in the NFL but he was a great college QB. He's taken his public image and college success and run with them. He's been given an enormous amount of opportunity because the NFL (and to a much lesser extent the MLB) wanted to cash in on his image and make the sport(s)
  11. I agree with comments above that with a rookie team and coaching staff there will be mistakes and winnable games may be lost over those mistakes. As much as I want to demand more wins the better metric is whether the team is moving forward towards becoming a competitive force over the long term. It will be painful to watch but I'd rather take four wins and a lot of solid performances in losses than a Rex Ryan style eight wins and eight incredibly bad losses. It is unreasonable to expect a single year of rebuild would become a winning season when they didn't go full tilt spending in FA for shor
  12. Morgan was definitely a developmental pick who seems like he might be good as a backup and/or running the scout team with some work. He has experience with a couple different offensive schemes but seems like he would need a lot of work to even get a chance to compete for a starting role. I can understand the logic of taking a fourth round QB as a developmental pick but not in 2020. The team had a ton of urgent holes and who was he going to rely on to develop Morgan--Gase and Loggains? If JD planned on the team having a new coaching staff then why not wait to make developmental picks unti
  13. Setting this game first is so uninteresting. Both QBs are in a new system and team in their first start so as much as there might be chips on shoulders neither team/QB is likely to play with the confidence of more time to gel. No matter the outcome it won't say much about whether the decision was the right move in the long term.
  14. I agree with the multiple comments above that JD didn't seem to have authority to discharge Gase and even if he did there wasn't anybody in the coaching staff worth keeping for a look at the HC role. I have a hard time imagining JD had enough affection for Gase that he would have kept him as a favor or that JD didn't know how bad Gase was as a coach. JD was clearly washing out the garbage as much as possible and looking for a good draft this year. It wouldn't have made sense to even try to move on a new candidate midseason or put a competitive team on the field. It's fairly common for new
  15. I could see this game scheduled towards the end of the season so it turns into Darnold a year free of Gase versus Wilson a year into the NFL where it is more of a head to head battle and then they can spill the debate over into the offseason whether the Jets should have kept Darnold or how Darnold would have performed on the 2021 Jets. If the Panthers knock the Jets out of competition for the playoffs then that's a juicy story. If the game is set early in the season it lends to less of a storyline. If the Panthers win there's an easy out that Wilson is too new to the league to say whethe
  16. I haven't seen any credible source mentioning numbers but common sense would suggest he's asking for a decently high number or a deal would have been done already. I suspect JD knew he intended to draft several DB and that would weaken Maye's bargaining position but maybe Maye's bargaining posture pushed JD to draft a replacement. We don't know that Maye's number is unreasonable and the Jets just don't want to pay it. If Saleh's time with the 49ers is any indication of what will happen then Maye probably moves on to another team. Saleh had a lot of talent on the front line in 2019 and lo
  17. Maye is a good player and seems like a good teammate. He should be re-signed at a value commensurate to the value he brings the team if possible. Maye isn't a game changer on the field but he is a good foundational player who does his job reasonably well. If he wants game changing salary he's going to have to get it somewhere else. Saleh's defense is about versatility. If they overpay for one position they will end up having to overpay for everybody which was one of the problems the team faced in 2011 and 2012.
  18. Let's hope he's learned to catch a ball since his last route a decade ago. Meyer + Tebow is the perfect opportunity for JAX to convert UF fans into JAX fans and sell an enormous amount of jerseys. I won't be surprised if they showcase a couple gadget plays in the preseason where Tebow gets a handoff to throw or run to pump up those UF fans.
  19. He was so close to saying the Jets didn't attack the issue, caught himself and then added dismissively that the team addressed it in the later rounds. Quinn is as bad with a mic as he was with a football.
  20. If he leaves then he's going to a win-now team not a team on a rebuild. He might have five years but he could be one injury away from retirement. He isn't going to a team where he might have to wait a year or two before contending for playoffs and a team that isn't a QB away from real Super Bowl competition would pay an enormous premium with a real potential he's gone in a year or two either in FA or retirement. If this was the 08-09 Jets sure, that would make as much sense as putting Farve on that team. Unless something magical happens this team is maybe a wildcard competitor even with a
  21. The entire thread is A if JD drafted who you liked and B if you didn't. Not a lot of objective analysis of what the draft did for the roster.
