  1. The ironic part is I selected Smith in my mock, I just don't know a lot about him. I definitely agree with you and @derp that a big, athletic NT type is just what the line needs.
  2. Does this "judge the player by the record" argument also stand for all the other positions as well? How's Elijah Moore playing? "Well, he's 5-3". How about Nathan Sheppard? "5-3 too and the defense is lights out!"
  3. This is what I'm hoping for as well. Play Peraza at SS, Volpe at 2nd (since he allegedly has the inferior arm out of the 2) and pray DJ stays healthy. Alternatively, you can play IKF at 3rd or trade for someone (Kris Bryant?). Also, I'd explore the prior trade that was on the table to send Gleyber to the Marlins for the pitcher.
  4. I agree Derp, but I wonder how much value they are going to place on a big 1 technique if they have to pull him off the field on passing downs.
  5. I agree with you. Look, its encouraging that he came out against the Bills after the Patriots debacle and had a mistake free game, but is this all we are expecting out of the second overall pick in his second season? IMO, it was patently clear that the coaching staff clearly game planned to have him make easy quick reads against Buffalo to avoid the potential for mistakes, but how long can the team thrive the offense working under those restrictions. If that's all the Jets wanted, they should have drafted Davis Mills in the third round.
  6. I know you are absolutely not a Zach homer, but I don't believe that statement can be substantiated by any of the available data.
  7. Its 2022, you can basically see every throw by every QB on a weekly basis by doing a youtube search and yes, I've seen every Fields game this year because I'm a masochist.
  8. I can't see Verlander coming here.
  9. Future left tackle? check. Hyatt give the Jets the true deep threat they lack. I'd transition Moore to safety and Smith gives the defense a true, big nose tackle.
  10. Whatever makes you feel better. The reality is that you cannot find ONE person that would prefer to have Wilson over Fields right now unless the person is a Jets fan, BYU fan, or Chris SImms.
  11. I wonder how the team and coaching staff feel about selecting a linebacker high. II don't recall the Eagles (where Douglas came from) spending high picks on linebackers and the 49ers and Seahawks (where the coaching staff has its roots) made a living off of developing mid round linebackers like Fred Warner and Bobby Wagner into Pro Bowlers.
  12. Gary Sanchez will NEVER wear Yankees pinstripes again.
  13. Let's rewind the tape. You said, "There is a much higher chance that Justin Fields never develops as a passer in the NFL than Zach Wilson." I asked, "What is your basis for opining the bolded part aside from your "gut"?" You responded, "jets were down in the fourth quarter in hostile territory....Wilson stood in the pocket and made throw after throw to bring his team back to a W." I then responded with a link showing Fields's 4th quarter combacks and game winning drives. You then tried to dismiss the link I sent by pointing out that Fields had a bad stat line in 1 of the games. I responded that the game that you stated which shows that Wilson has a much higher chance to develop as a passer he also had a poor stat line, including 2 interceptions if I recall correctly. Then you called me a hater. I'm going to leave this alone because I feel I've made my point.
  14. Wilson's stat line in the Pittsburgh game you cited wasn't exactly stellar either.
  15. He also only attempted 20 passes yesterday and averaged 8.4 yards per attempt. Tua leads the league in yards per attempt at 7.9 I believe.
  16. My 3 keys to the second half: 1. Can the OL keep it up. The offense can be effective if the running game is working and the OL has been miraculously holding it together despite the injuries. Will the OL play even better when Fant & Mitchell come back? 2. Will the secondary keep up its elite play? This has allowed the Jets to keep low scoring games that allows the offense to run the ball and not have to throw more than necessary.
  17. They also have mediocre targets on the outside except for Mooney (although Kmet has been playing better as of late). The Bears biggest problem is that the defense went straight to hell after trading Roquon and Quinn.
  18. Let's set opinions aside from board members and look at straight facts: https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/F/FielJu00.htm https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/W/WilsZa00.htm This season, Fields is ahead on: Completion %, yards, tied on yards per attempt, TDs, QB rating, QBR and rushing yards and he's missed fewer games due to injury (if durability is something you want to factor in). Wilson is ahead on: Fewer INTs, Int %, This is without even arguing about who has the better supporting cast. Then I did a google search for "best QB 2021 nfl draft), results are here: https://www.google.com/search?q=best+qb+2021+nfl+draft&sxsrf=ALiCzsYzDLCYlonN-3b9cIqg17dH7DwUMA:1668433831081&source=lnms&tbm=nws&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjfudSu6K37AhV_jokEHbrZDkIQ_AUoAXoECAIQAw&biw=1175&bih=847&dpr=1 Of the first 10 articles, 4 mention Fields as the best QB from the class, none mention Wilson as the best and only 1 article has Wilson above Fields (this is also the oldest article on the list).
  19. Well, Fields has 1 4th quarter comeback and 2 game winning drives: https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/comeback.cgi?player=FielJu00 I also think its not fair to handicap a player by not allowing him to take advantage of his running ability.
  20. That's also fair. I don't really have a strong opinion on the matter 1 way or another, I was just interested in what the records were and wanted to share it.
  21. You're welcome to research it on Google and share your results with us
  22. Maybe, I was just posting facts and allowing people to form their own conclusions.
  23. My post wasn't a response to the Fields vs. Wilson debate, it was in response to Hawkeye's post about the Bears adapting their offense to Fields. I thought it was fair to give the Bears staff a pass for not knowing what to do with Fields at first given that he was new to their system.
