  1. Love Chad and Mawae but I do not think they were Jets for a long enough time to be considered. Curious how Brick doesn't seem to make anyone's list? I guess being quiet and just doing your job on a consistently high level doesn't count for much.
  2. MY top 5 favorite Jets Bruce Harper Freeman McNeil Joe Klecko Wayne Chrebet Curtis Martin
  3. IMO the main reason for Darnold's failure to fulfill his potential is that for whatever reason (practice habits, brain, coaching, etc...) the game has not slowed down for him.
  4. The bottom line is that if you want to get drafted by the Jets as a QB out of USC, you just need a signature game vs Penn State in the Rose Bowl
  5. I'd say they are equally far along when you look at the starters since last season. The D added 3 new players to the secondary and 2 new D Lineman (if you include Lawson). So, 45 % of the starters are new. On O they added starters at WR, RB, G, TE and T if you include Becton. So that is also 45% of the starters being new. I see the starting units on an even keel as far as the rebuild. The big difference in my book is that JD has added good depth across all of the offensive position groups while he has only done so at DL and CB for the D. Depth at S and LB will be a real issue if there are injuries, and there are always injuries.
  6. below average. 8 or 9 would be average.
  7. This. When engaged he can make some great plays. When not, he's pretty pedestrian. I think he will pull a Wilkerson and be fully engaged in a contract year, but JD ain't Mac and he wont be fooled by one season of real effort.
  8. Season tickets are just too much of a burden. I'd rather pick and choose games (and even seasons) to attend. Already have my tix for the Fins and Lions games.
  9. RIP Goose. You were a modern day Art Donovan.
  10. I do think the Jets will play well and be much improved, but we will not likely see the results in the Win column because the schedule is brutal.
  11. I like Fant and he had a really good season, but Fant is not to O lineman what Fitzpatrick is to DB's. And it is not like the Jets have treated Fant like crap. They paid him $30 million already. Plus, we don't even know if he will win the RT spot this season, and we do know that he is a below average run blocker. Frankly, his retweet and comment are troubling
  12. I’m out of the jersey game. My far east source, Bruce Lee , has disappeared. I fear the worst.
  13. Very excited about Becton’s return. His shirt, the attitude, the confidence all make me feel pretty good about him this season. Also, listening to him makes me suspect he’s a much brighter guy than many imagine.
  14. Zubov was a great player but he only played 3 seasons for the Rangers. While kovalev was immensely talented, he was not great.
  15. So, he’s got nowhere to go but up. Also, who among us was the best at their job in year 1. Show me this list in years 3 through 5.
  16. Yeah, other than Leetch and Richter we won the 94 cup with mercenaries. After 94 that became the model and it failed miserably. The Rangers didn’t even begin to concentrate on the draft until a few years after the salary cap was put in place in 2004. But over the last decade they’ve really dedicated resources to scouting and developing and it’s paying off.
  17. Chytil may become a great player. He’s been in the NHL since 19 years old. This is the best he’s ever played. Hopefully, he will sustain it into next year. His linemates on the kid line are in the same boat but were more highly touted coming into the NHL as overall #1 and #2 picks. They may become great. As to the best players not in goal currently on the team are considered top players at their positions in the NHL now, it is the its Fox, Zabinijad, Panerin, Kreider and Trouba.
  18. Strome is gone. So, they will sign Copp but I don’t think Drury just hands out money and i think copp will take a reasonable deal because he wants to win. I’m hopeful that Panerin will have Copp centering his line next year with Kratsov as the other wing. Vatrano should be counting his blessings because no other team would ever put him on their top line, and he did not help his case in game 5, he was terrible.
  19. Panerin needs to have a natural goal scorer on his line. He’s basically out there by himself trying to make things happen in the offensive end.
  20. Fits made a little over $82 million in 17 years. That is a great career for anyone, in any line of work.
  21. A van that my brother and i customized. I actually cannot recall if it was a Ford or Chevy. Anyway, my brother and i Covered it floor to ceiling in shag carpet and installed benches and a table. I got pulled over by cops quite a bit when driving in quiet NJ neighborhoods near my girlfriends house in my white van with blacked out windows and NY plates, especially when a school was nearby.
  22. Just Shoot Me, Season 6 episodes 9 and 12. Ray Liotta was brilliant. It is how I will always remember him.
  23. I have high hopes for becton, mims snd davis this season but even if they crap out, JD and Saleh have proven to be a formidable tandem in the draft. Part of the reason is because Saleh had all of his position coaches create profiles for the attributes a player needs to excel in their system.
