  1. Jury is still out and I may completely eat crow on this take but I feel much better about our coaching staff in place than most of the options available this go around. I mean the top candidates seem to be Dan Quinn a retread who yes, got to a super bowl but was really bad in the last few years in ATL. Brian Flores - another retread who while many believe got a raw deal in Miami, certainly has some red flags based on what's come out of Miami. And Brian Daboll, someone we interviewed last year and didn't even make it to the second rd. the biggest unknown and yes, gets a ton of credit for the Buffalo offense but is it him or Josh Allen? Again, any of these guys could end up being great but based on resume I feel better about our coaching staff right now.
  2. Could work out for both sides though - Dallas is going all in on winning now and the Saints a ton of collateral for a rebuild.
  3. He'll take a year off and be in Dallas in 2023.
  4. Yes but your less likely to get a top player and more likely to overpay just b/c of simple supply and demand. It's also a less impactful position overall. I don't disagree they need safeties I just don't agree with spending a top 10 pick on the position right now.
  5. It's a need but lower on the totem pole and def. a position you can fill in free agency. Getting another O-lineman, WR, pass rusher, even LB to me, would be much more high on that list. Especially when you factor in salary and the ability to have control of a top player at a premium position on a rookie contract.
  6. No doubt Hamilton will be a good player from what I'm hearing but drafting him in the top 10 is exactly the type of move that got Macc fired. Drafting BPA is always a good strategy but you have to weigh team need, scheme, position etc... with all of that. Right now, looking at the Jets roster Hamilton is just too much of a luxury for me.
  7. I really think if you look past the headline this is getting blown of proportion. I get that we expected to Zach to be back by now and if he wasn't a rookie and we were in a playoff hunt, he would probably be playing. I think it's pretty straightforward, he's not 100% healthy yet and they would rather not throw him out there against a team that blitz's a lot, but I think even bigger than that is the fact that we're home and coming off a blowout loss. The fans are rightfully not going to be patient and if Zach gets off to a slow start, the boo birds will be out early. Let him start on the road against the Texans, a much better landing spot given the situation.
  8. Fair enough, I get it but just for clarification, the image I pulled is 100% public information it's an official NJ website that doesn't require logins or anything. Anyone can look it up. With that being said, I get it. If I was in any of these peoples shoes I wouldn't want my info out there like that.
  9. Yes, I'm stalking but long story short I have a friend who works in athletics for the Chatham school system and he told me Ulbrich was living in Chatham so through a little stalking when I was bored I found his house and then noticed it was Adam Gase's house. Might explain the defense the last few weeks lmao
  10. I liked the Saleh hire when we made it and I'm not in anyway giving up on him yet but one thing that's been surprising to me about Saleh is the lack of emotion I've seen from him on the sidelines. When he was in San Fran. I remember constantly seeing him pumping up the defense on the sidelines, talking to the players etc.. I know things change when you're a HC but with him not calling plays I not only expected him to keep that intensity but be someone that's more vocal on the sidelines. Very rarely do I see him talking to his players other then high fives and saying "Nice Play"
  11. I wouldn't go as far as to say it justifies the poor performance of Wilson against N.E. but it does make me feel a little better when you see a first ballot HOF struggle against that defense as well.
  12. what is it with Connor's lately? I had to stop following Connor Hughes because he's turned into a "I told you so" Mehta wanna-be troll and now this guy.
  13. I hate to beat a dead horse but this is the exact scenario that we were worried about with not having a viable backup QB. I'm yelling to bench Zach, but with the game out of hand and the o-line getting killed yesterday's game would've been the perfect opportunity for him to reset, sit and watch for a while. It's really criminal JD went into this season without a viable backup
  14. Not even close to Hackenberg. First of all, Hack was a second rd. pick not a 4th rd. pick, second Macc realistically believed we didn't need to draft a QB when we could've had Mahomes or Watson which was the absolute worst part of the Hack pick. I mean imagine not taking Zach Wilson this year because we drafted Morgan.
  15. I mean I guess from a positive standpoint if this was going to happen at least it happen early enough that he has now close to a full year to recover versus this happening say week 12 putting a question mark for the 2022 season when we really expect to make that push. On the flip side, I wonder more-so about the effect this will have on our secondary. Everyone's talking about the pass rush but this defense was predicated on our pass rush so our secondary wouldn't be expected to cover as long. While our d-line should still be good, that disruption Lawson was expected to bring does have a domino effect on our secondary.
  16. One thing we have to remember, is while we are looking at it from the Jets side. Meaning this is the first time they're meeting someone like Saleh in person, it's also the first time Saleh is meeting the Jets. Yes, in the past a second interview usually meant an offer was coming but, this year these candidates don't have the luxury of touring the facility and meeting staffs the first time around. So the second interview becomes less of a formality and more of a chance for the candidate to really get introduced to the facility, the area they would be moving to etc... I think this is important just to remind ourselves that a candidate not signing after that second interview doesn't mean it's not happening, it just means that they also want to do their due diligence.
  17. Could also play into the thought process that maybe we could actually get some real value out of a Darnold trade. If you're the Bucs, Saints, Colts or Steelers knowing you'll likely be picking later in the 1st rd. Are you better off taking Sam and giving up that 2 and 5 versus taking a chance on a guy through the draft. Sam is still only 23 yrs old and will have a few years of NFL experience under his belt. Let him sit on the bench for a year two and clear his head behind an experienced HOF type QB with a good coaching staff and maybe he can be salvaged. I'm sure a lot of teams will think this way.
  18. I would love Cowher but I just hope Woody would treat it like a real interview and lean on JD and team. I can see Woody going for the headline grab and not even giving JD a say. Cowher would be a great coach to bring into this organization but it would be important to understand who his coaching staff would be, what he's learned over the past 15 years being away from the sidelines. My fear is Woody would get word he was interested in the job and just hire him without any due diligence.
  19. I don't even know if it's his inability to process post snap. Per the video, he looked right at Crowder but just couldn't pull the trigger. I think this is more about his confidence being shot. A fresh start on the bench for a year with a good org. and offensive mind like Reich in Indy could be exactly what he needs.
  20. I said this is another thread, but what about Sean Payton? Will he want to stick around for a rebuild? Not likely he will be available but you never know.
  21. Darnold is def. thinking about his future and I can't blame him. He sees the writing on the wall, I'm sure his agent and everyone around is telling him, not to risk his future for this team.
  22. Gregg's defense may not be playing that well this year but at least he was able to jack up Jamal's trade value last year. Seeing Jamal this year, he should sign wherever Gregg ends up next.
  23. Carolina also has a better WR corp, so while I haven't watched many of their games changes are he's not getting the opposing defense's #1 CB either which he likely would've gotten here in NY.
  24. Don't underestimate the Pats getting another win under their belt too. They are not a good team and are going to be in need of QB. I'd love to see them spend a few years in that 6-10/7-9 purgatory territory where they're never bad enough to have a top pick but never good enough to be a real threat. I'll never count Belichek out of course, but the Pats are a team that looks like they could be in for a rebuild.
  25. Complete long shot but I'd keep an eye on Sean Payton, the Saints may be at an inflection point with Brees looking old coupled with their salary cap issues they could be in for a rebuild which could open up the opportunity to possibly pry him away from New Orleans. Yes, I know why would he want to go the Jets but if we end up with the opportunity to draft TL, a ton of cap space and draft capital it could be an intriguing option for Payton. As for the Jets, if there was even the slightest chance I would hope they would open up the checkbook.
