  1. Can we skip to next year when you realize nobody is watching your videos and you move on to SIX CRYPTO BUYS WALL STREET DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT
  2. The attorney who filed this complaint has a history of filing these kinds of cases for publicity. It's cheaper to file a bombastic and ridiculous lawsuit and draw media attention than pay for TV ads. If the attorney is really in it for the money in the case, then the hope is discovery uncovers something embarrassing to the team(s) and they will pay to keep it quiet.
  3. Steve Young is a big advocate for BYU so it's no surprise he was or continues to advocate for their football players in the NFL. I don't think it is in any way surprising or unreasonable that he would advocate for their star QB to go to a team with a very recent history of success over a team that has been in the dump for a decade with a brand new HC and relatively new GM.
  4. Sanchez not working out was unfortunate for a lot of reasons but it always stung a little that he seemed like he wanted to be here, wanted to be the face of the franchise and a lot of the players seemed to legitimately like him.
  5. If you presume the NFL sets the schedule to create storyline that looks a lot like they are giving the team a chance to look competitive early. Either the Jets look like a team on the rise or a team that should have done well and why not? Leaves a tougher end to see whether the team falls off or seriously hunts a wildcard which is a second storyline. Says the team is set up for a better story than Darnold vs. Wilson one week and then who cares.
  6. #1 in all categories or this team is a failure and they need to start over
  7. If this team somehow gets worse and picks third next year they should dismiss the coaching staff. Wilson is a question mark but the rest of the roster is the best roster this team has had since 2010 or 2011.
  8. I don't have any serious feeling about what he said. He's there as the presumed starter not a vet hanging around the end of his career looking for a reason for teams to keep paying him as a backup. He could have been more polite about his comments but whatever. He's known to be an ass. It is mildly humorous that he's such an ass to teammates but then goes on the church circuit giving speeches that presents a completely different persona.
  9. Definitely nobody of even minor media significance cares about your desperate efforts to get attention on your videos. For every Cimini there are 10,000 dopes on youtube posting videos who think their big break is right around the corner.
  10. Jets have built up a good looking roster but I'm not booking wins less than a week after the draft. Right now this is still the last place team in the division and hopefully the team spends the offseason working like they have something to prove. We deserve to be optimistic about the direction of the team but we also owe it to ourselves to be realistic. A four win team last year probably doesn't put a one in front of the four this year. Bills still look good. NE doesn't look strong right now especially with McDaniels out. Miami always gets talked up in the offseason but like the Jets the proof has to come in the form of wins.
  11. In the weirdest way possible the Adams draft pick has turned out to be one of the most successful picks in franchise history.
  12. There are definitely some people who revel in misery which isn't hard to do as a Jets fan. Most people here I think want him to succeed but with varying degrees of frustration about how little progress appears in the record and varying degrees of reasonableness about what could have been done without the benefit of hindsight. Rebuilding a team that has been trash for a decade requires getting a lot of decisions right and Douglas is only human. I'm just along for the ride and trying to remain optimistic that Douglas has a reasonable plan and makes more good decisions than bad. I agree that this offseason needs to be a big step forward for the team. Douglas is saddled with very little from the prior regime with his coach, his QB and this will be his second offseason to shape the roster. The excuses for another lousy season are running out.
  13. Great value out of a fourth pick. A guy who played a little better every year (until injuries) and seemed happy to be here. Maybe he liked it with the Jets because he was a starter where he might have been a back up on a lot of teams but he never seemed to cop an attitude about that.
  14. First of all: lol. Second, he works on a contract so he's getting paid for contractual performance. If he wants to get paid more it's going to be what he does on the field in games not whether he shows to voluntary practices. If anybody even hinted at his non-attendance of voluntary practice during contract negotiations they would be grieved immediately. I get teams might consider it but they damn sure can't bring it up. If he's good in games he's going to be paid comparably to other players at the same level of performance.
  15. The workouts are voluntary, we don't know why he isn't there whether that is because something else is going on or he didn't feel like it. If your boss says you can come in and work for free on Saturday then how many of us losers here are racing to work to give up our days off?
  16. Does it count if you only got to the redzone once?
  17. I definitely panic any time a player isn't constantly and desperately seeking my approval in just the right way on social media because I am some kind of decisionmaker for the team.
  18. I thought the word on Geno is he's substantially better in practice when there's no real pressure than in game where he's pressed into poor decisions. If true that makes him a good backup option.
  19. Even if you didn't like the substance of his comedy he had fantastic comedic technique. He knew exactly who he was and didn't try to make his humor anything more or less than exactly who he was. He had a sense of humor about himself and wasn't afraid to make himself the punchline to his own jokes. His timing and delivery was so well paced that it was either constantly carefully crafted or just natural ability to know how to extract all the value out of anything funny he said. He always came off like he was completely comfortable with who he was and that's a level of confidence we should all aspire to.
  20. There is distortion in the defense rankings because the stats don't reflect the realities of the games or schedules. When you're a bottom ranked team (Panthers, Bears, Broncos) you play several games against other bottom ranked teams. If your offense sucks then teams don't have to shootout to win, they just need to rack up a comfortable lead and then game/time manage to a victory. If such a team has a halfway decent defense then they are in a position to look better than they would playing a tougher schedule or against teams that needed to put up thirty points or more to win. Most of the top teams on defense were at the bottom on offense and even those teams that reached the playoffs were middling offensively. Defensive ranking is a nice bragging point but doesn't really mean anything towards success. It's great to have a good defense but most of the successful teams under the current rules have a serviceable defense and a good offense.
  21. Seems like Douglas is well aware of this and despite trying to generate interest among star players in FA he knows where this team is right now. Most of his signings have been depth signings which reflects what this team is. This is a team where #2 and #3 players can compete to become starters and advance their careers. If that's the majority of the FA market available to the team then it makes sense to buy what you need and try to draft what you can't. It's a slow, methodical way to build but it's better IMO than paying premiums for #2 players and crowning them #1. The team can't live in this space forever but I can appreciate making the most of the situation in FA. Still need to see real improvement this year.
  22. He Hate Me signed with a CFL team before signing with the Eagles so...yes?
