  1. Sometimes the smart play is to take the 9 point loss. It was a good loss for this group. They go for it on 4th down and don't get it (which was the likely result), then the Bills ram it down the Jets throat for 7 more points and suddenly a respectable 21-12 loss turns into a 28-12 beat down.
  2. If you want a young guy to succeed, you need to build his confidence by putting him in position to succeed. The question isn't whether Burris is starting now. The question is whether he is being given opportunities to succeed, and he is. I would expect continued success will warrant expanded playing time. That's how it's supposed to work. I think it's funny that people get on Bowles for their perception that he prefers vets. No one had a problem when Bill Parcells preferred vets. And does Bowles really prefer vets? Lee, Jenkins, Maye, and Adams started from Day 1 of their pro careers.
  3. Mac seems like an intelligent guy, and I am a firm believer that you've got to "do" a job to get better at it. Clearly, his first two draft were not so good, but I thought he did much better this past year. And he has us positioned to have money in free agency for 2018 and, hopefully, the top pick with 2 QBs worthy of a #1 overall selection coming out (If Darnold doesn't decide he's having too much fun in college) . While the bashing for selecting Hack is warranted... it was a desperate reach, hopefully he learned his lesson. We'll never know about Devon Smith because no one can predict injuries. Darron Lee was not really worthy of a first round pick, but no one at that point in the draft was. Have you ever gone back and looked at the guys picked after Lee? 1 20 NYJ Darron Lee OLB 21 2017 0 0 1 4 4 14 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 49 2.0 Ohio St. College Stats 1 21 HOU Will Fuller WR 22 2016 0 0 1 6 6 14 0 0 0 0 0 1 -3 0 47 635 2 Notre Dame College Stats 1 22 WAS Josh Doctson WR 23 2017 0 0 0 1 1 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 66 0 TCU College Stats 1 23 MIN Laquon Treadwell WR 21 2016 0 0 0 0 0 9 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 15 0 Mississippi College Stats 1 24 CIN William Jackson CB 23 2017 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 Houston College Stats 1 25 PIT Artie Burns CB 21 2017 0 0 0 5 5 17 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 53 3 Miami (FL) College Stats 1 26 DEN Paxton Lynch QB 22 2016 0 0 0 1 1 3 49 83 497 2 1 11 25 0 0 0 0 Memphis College Stats 1 27 GNB Kenny Clark DT 20 2017 0 0 0 3 3 17 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 14 UCLA College Stats 1 28 SFO Joshua Garnett G 22 2016 0 0 1 5 5 15 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Stanford College Stats 1 29 ARI Robert Nkemdiche DT 22 2016 0 0 0 0 0 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Mississippi College Stats 1 30 CAR Vernon Butler DT 22 2016 0 0 0 1 1 10 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 5 1.5 Louisiana Tech College Stats 1 31 SEA Germain Ifedi G 22 2017 0 0 1 6 6 14 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Texas A&M College Stats So, I'm willing to let Mac continue to grow. He has shown he knows how to pick the obvious player in the first round. So, he should be OK in 2018 picking the QB. The degree of improvement in 2018 will determine his future.
  4. ... and if you really piss us off, we just might send you to a SB contender!
  5. This got me thinking that the Jets really have to consider a players personality. Playing QB in NY is simply not the same thing as playing QB in just about every other city. You need a guy who will embrace the spot light, or at least understand how to deal with it. Rosen seems like he wants to be "the" guy. Darnold is an interesting study on this point. His free spirit surfer dude persona profiled in every article about his personal life and upbringing is at odds with how he appears on the field -- stoic and unemotional. I just don't know how he would react to the NY media scrutiny. I hope the Jets hire a sports psychologist to help them choose their QB in next year's draft.
  6. In all seriousness, at what position other than Safety does any member of the 2017 Jets win a starting job on the 2009 Jets?
  7. Terrible? He only played 6 games before he was injured 59.3% for 1915 yards with 10 TD and 5 Int (3 were in the first game). How is that Terrible? Locker Room Cancer? He's the F'n QB! All of the great QBs are dickheads -- with the exception of Peyton (who would have won more SBs if he wasn't such a nice guy). And I didn't notice any of Rosen's teammates giving up on him when UCLA was being blown out by A&M. BTW, the Jets won their only Superbowl with a locker room cancer under center.
  8. Here is Hacks value. He is Young and has tools. If he is the back up for the Jets for the next 3 years and in years 2 and 3 actually does well in the preseason, some QB desperate team.might send us a conditional draft pick for him. Other than that Hack has little value to the Jets. And Petty has even less value, no talent evaluators believe he is starting QB material and even if he tears it up in the preseason, they will check it up to it being meaningless production against scrubs.
  9. What a tragedy for Andrew Luck. The Colts are a mess and completely clueless as to how to win with a franchise QB. Remember when they drafted Manning and were smart enough to fire their HC and bring in Dungy? That's a pretty good formula... draft franchise QB then bring in successful HC. Wonder why they didn't replicate it? They'd have been a dynasty team if they had recognized their good fortune when Bruce Arians fell into their lap filling in for Pagano. It is sad that Pagano had cancer, but surviving cancer is hardly a testament to one's ability to successfully coach in the NFL.
  10. Allen!? Really!? After his game against Iowa, he has to play his way back onto my list. I've got it now as Darnold, Rosen, Jackson, Falk, Mayfield.
  11. I disagree as to the characterization of some of his second half throws as being"ill advised". He was trying to come back in the second half of a blow-out. He threw many passes away in the first half when he was under constant pressure. In my view he showed excellent game and situational awareness because he did not start taking chances until the second half when he had no other choice because he was trying to win the game rather than pad his stats with check-down completions.
  12. Forte would make the Giants and Pats better teams. On another note, Bowles should get coach of the year if he somehow manages to keep the locker room together for the sh*t show that will be the 2017 Jets season.
  13. First, last I checked Harbaugh was not available. Second, how many SB's has Harbaugh won?
  14. LOL yeah, that was his plan. They signed Scott the hour free agency started, months before they were forced to select Gholston as the chalk pick when no one wanted to trade for the spot.... and they played different positions. Where was all of that "insurance" at QB and along the O line when Tanny was here?
  15. Geno's problems are related to two things: 1) Decision making. Although it could also be his vision. He often fails to recognize the best option on a pass play. Is he rushing or not going through his progressions? I'm not sure. But he leaves plays on the field by throwing to his check down when their is an open down field option, or throws down filed into coverage rather than using his check down or throwing it away. He seems incapable of accepting that an incomplete pass is a perfectly fine option if no one is open or he is under pressure -- He runs and takes a yardage loss instead of throwing the ball away, or he forces a throw into coverage. His poor decision making invariably leads to "blow up" plays. Fumble where he holds the ball too long and interceptions. 2) Accuracy. This is not just an issue of him completely missing open WR's on occassion. It is also his ball placement. When WR have to go to the ground or leave their feet to catch the ball, it eliminates YAC and opportunities for big plays. This is a huge problem. Successful NFL QB's are deadly accurate. Geno might be the least accurate QB in the entire NFL. It does not help that his release is slow either. This just gives, DB a better jump on his balls and an even better chance for an Int if the throw is not accurate. I was in the camp of Geno could be a very good NFL QB after the way he finished last year. I do not know what has happened to him since then. But if he does not show marked improvement in these areas in the next 3 weeks, I think we can chalk up last year's finish as an aberration and accept the fact that he is not, and will never be, even an average NFL QB. BTW, anyone see Garrapolo last night. I have no idea whether he will ever be a successful NFL QB, but his mechanics, quick release, and accuracy were better then Geno's has ever been.
  16. I don't know if Garrapolo will ever be a successful QB in the NFL, but I was very impressed with his quick release and accuracy. His mechanics are far better than Geno.
  17. First, I hate the Pats, but they are 2-2 and I would not bury them just yet. Second, to compare the current Jets to the Kotite era is plain old dopey. They've been in every game, and are one position-- QB -- away from being a very good team on the rise.
  18. I think 8 of them are on the roster, IR, and practice squad.
  19. Wow, wrong again. Keep it up. I'm sure you are on the verge of some sort of record for ineptitude.
  20. Frankly, Geno looks lost. His accuracy is off the charts bad and his decision making is even worse. If Rex is coaching for his job and/or if the Jets are actually trying to win games, why aren't they going to Vick? It makes no sense at all. There does not have to be a QB controversy. It's not like Vick has a lot of years left. In fact, his shelf life is fast expiring. The Jets should use Vick while they can. Plus, I think the message of "Geno is our guy and will not be benched" is the wrong way to handle Geno. Bottom line, he has some serious problems in his game that have not improved. I think a benching would send the right message to Geno. That is, fix these problems or you can not be an NFL QB. The message they are sending now is that these are just growing pains and he will grow out of them. The situation is far more dire than that. And oh yeah, didn't Geno's play improve last year after he was benched?
  21. 1. 3 DL, not 4. So the O is blocking him with OTs and FB with free shots at him. Sometimes teams even chip then block him. 2. We'll have wait and see, but you WILL be wrong. (not an unusual occurrence). 3. Yes his number of pressures on plays he rushes the QB is total non sense. (eye roll) I remember you from JI. Your understanding of football remains rudimentary.
  22. +1. Criticism of Coples play this season is limited to those who have little or no understanding of his play responsibilities and role as OLB in Rex's system.
  23. Don't really know you, but based on your comments I had a favorable impression of you. Until now, that is.
  24. The Geno problem. The bonehead plays. He lacks down and distance awareness and seems to play every down like it is 4th and goal with time running out. His willingness to throw into coverage (or the lack of recognizing the 3 d players covering his target) on a handful of plays a game is his problem. The pick 6 should have been thrown into the ground. It was clearly a busted screen play. Everyone, except Geno, recognized this fact. And why the hell is he forcing the ball into the back of the endzone on a broken play on 1st and 10 from the 18! And add into that the 3 or 4 times he evaded the pass rush, rolled out, and then ran and took a loss by going out of bounds or sliding for a loss, rather than throwing the ball into the bench. Clearly, he understand the playbook better. What he really needs to understand is that there is no need to force the action. That is the difference between really good QBs and guys like Jeff George. Regardless of how well Geno plays 95% of the time, if he continues to make bonehead plays, we will ALL suffer the results.
