  1. I remember Scherff was drafted right before Leonard Williams and my friend who's a big Redskins fan being pissed they didn't draft Leonard Williams, haha what a joke that was.
  2. I mean in no way do I think the CJ and Douglass expected the team to be this bad but let's be honest, you do't fire your GM if you think you have perennial playoff team on your hands. I'm from the Head Coaching interviews and then Gase getting into the building he was convinced into the idea that this team was a lot further away then he initially thought. The upside to this ugly year is we're likely not looking at 7-9/8-8 type year and should end up with a top 5 pick as apposed to being in that no mans land of picking between 15-20. It's been too much losing and I'm tired of this as well but it gives Douglass a lot of options. He can take that top 5 pick or what I tend to lean towards is trading it for more picks. And with Darnold, Mosely, Adams and Lev here as the core we could turn this around pretty quickly The truth is though this was never the year, not after 4 years of just awful drafting from Mac and then 2 years of Idzik.
  3. This is a big year for Sam Darnold and giving him another professional receiver who knows Gase's offense and will push Enunwa and Robby is not a bad thing. At the end of the day does DT make us a playoff team? Probably not, but big picture he'll be a huge help to the development of Darnold.
  4. Day to day I feel like this move will have very little affect on the fan base. Sure this guy would be involved in decisions regarding hiring and firing coaches and GM's but it sounds like this role will be more focused on the business side. What's more interesting to me is the moves being made by CJ with Woody in England. It's one thing to bring in a new HC coming off a 4-12 season, that's a no brainer. But replacing the President of 20 years is a big move and makes me hope CJ will play a bigger role in the day to day of the team even after Woody's return
  5. I have zero facts to back this up but I have the feeling that CJ legitimately went into this season with the thought of giving Macc one more year. However, for CJ to strike when he did I got the impression that Macc did not come off well during the Head Coaching search. I thing that some of the more established coaches in the league like a McCarthy and even a Gase didn't have the best things to say about the roster construction. I also think that while Bowles was not a good Head Coach, however the Johnson's had a ton of respect for the guy it seemed. So I'm sure he had sort of an "Exit Interview" on the way out and didn't have the most glowing things to say about the roster construction and the F.O. Long story short, I think the timing of the firing was sort of a domino effect with Gase knowing this is likely his last stop as a H.C. if he fails so he smelled blood in the water and made sure that if he was going down, he was going down on is terms.
  6. The Browns are going to be so interesting this year. The potential is certainly there but all it takes is a little adversity and that team will fold.
  7. It's pretty obvious that Macc's issues running the Jets went beyond the bad drafting. From the comments I keep hearing from CJ and now even Douglas it's obvious Macc was not a good leader. Seemed like the type holed up in his office all day drinking his coffee and having very little interaction with the rest of the F.O. It's been brought up multiple times this idea of "forging" relationships with the scouts and the rest of the F.O. that combined with the bad drafts didn't give Macc a leg to stand on.
  8. I think it may have been planned this way on purpose. I'm sure there were no guarantees they were getting Douglas but they obviously knew what the GM landscape looked like and probably thought by making the move now they would get a head start on the GM search. It could've very well just have been dumb luck but I'd like to think this time around they may have actually had a plan.
  9. Never understood what really happened with him. He's nothing spectacular but we were pretty thin at WR last year and he seemed to be at least developing some rapport with Sam. Not a huge loss but still seemed like he could've been a useful piece last year when we moved on.
  10. Here's the reality: Offensively we are upgrading from Jeremy Bates to Adam Gase---=Win! We have Darnold in his second season----Win! We've added Jamison Crowder to replace Kearse----Win! We added Le'veon Bell.----Huge Win Traded for Osemele----Win! Didn't add a Center, although Long was pretty bad last year so this is ----Neutral! Defensively we replaced Bowles with Gregg Williams.-----I'll go neutral! Replaced Darron Lee with CJ Mosley-----Win! Drafted Q. Williams----Win! Finally drafted an edge Rusher---Neutral (he should be good but there was a reason he was a third rd. pick and let's not pretend Macc was just smarter then everyone else) Replaced Skrine with Poole----Neutral Didn't add another CB which was desperately needed----Negative I'm seeing a lot more positives then negatives and the obvious X-Factor will be Darnold and the offense. This team should be much better then last year and the first time in a while I'm actually really looking forward to a Jets season. The key will be the first 6 games but if we come out of that alive, the Wildcard should certainly be the real deal for us.
  11. Man, reading these little tidbits coming out about Macc which makes sense by the way he's drafter and treated free agency, Darnold has to be ecstatic he's gone. I don't understand how any GM in today's NFL with a young promising QB can think that you don't need to invest in O-Line. Just look at the Colts as a prime example of what can happen to a QB without an O-Line.
  12. I'm sure Peyton has no interest in coaching but I would love to have him at camp just kind of shadowing Darnold, could be a great learning experience
  13. I think that is one of the bigger flubs that goes unnoticed. Not specifically Skrine but the fact that the Jets and Macc doubled down on the 2015 season and basically gave Fitz the starting job and bringing back a lot of those over the hill veterans. They should've realize they caught lightening in a bottle and began breaking it down immediately after that. Not that the Bills have done anything yet but they were at least smart enough to realize that narrowly making the playoffs with Tyrod Taylor and that team in 2017 was not sustainable and instead of trying to go 9-7 again and maybe getting a Wild Card spot they chose to completely break it down. Basically all that did was buy Macc two years so essentially the organization looks at this year as the make or break year 3 of the rebuild.
  14. I'll be interested to see what happens with Todd over the next few years. He's a loyal guy and made a commitment to follow Bruce Arians who you have to think will yield a ton of power in the organization right now, with Arians being up there in age I can't picture him doing this for more then 3-5 more years and then maybe moving up into the FO. Basically what I'm saying is that if the Bucs have any sort of success I wouldn't be surprised to see him become the assumed next HC waiting in the wings for Arians to "retire" In the next 3 years or so the disaster of his tenure in NY will be long forgotten and he'll have another few years under Arians to learn from his mistakes.
  15. What is this the third or fourth time we've heard Hack's been fixed? Look it's not Hack's fault he was over drafted and never lived up to expectations that falls on the Jets and he is right he's only 23 so if he can show anything in this new league I wouldn't be surprised to see him get another shot to at least be a backup somewhere in the NFL next year.
  16. Trade Leonard Williams and bring back Sheldon Richardson!
  17. Here's what I'll say, at the end of the day we may end up with the perceived "safe" hire which would be McCarthy but I do like that it seems we're leaving no stone unturned and thinking outside the box. I don't know if CJ has anything to do with it or it's b/c of Darnold but I like it. In the past it seems like we would compile the list of top 3 up and coming coordinators and just hire one. This def. seems different.
  18. Not saying it is, like I said Macc has done little to build a sustainable winner through the draft like he's preached since getting here. My point was that it's tough to just compare what the team looks like now vs. if we would've signed Cousins.
  19. Not that I'm defending Macc b/c I'm at this point I'm on the side of just cleaning house but I would have to think if we had gotten Cousins we would've approached the offseason much differently and been in a more win-now mode, once that plan failed it was all about drafting a QB and building for the future. At the end of the day though, it shouldn't excuse the complete lack of talent Macc has been unable to acquire in 4 years. No true #1 Wide Receiver, no edge rusher, a mediocre at best o-line, a mediocre at best secondary in which we overpaid for Trumaine Johnson. Regardless of how Macc has tried to sell management on his plan the question that ultimately should be asked is how much better are the Jets today then we Macc got here and the amswer is not much at all. Getting Darnold doesn't excuse that either..
  20. I would put TE as low on the priority list, I think Hendon looks legit and Leggett has even showed promise. Neil Sterling could be that #3 if he can stay healthy but def. low on priority list IMO. I'm also intrigued by Nickerson as our nickel corner and would love to see him get some playing time down the stretch. Of course with Bowles knowing he's fired he'll try to get that extra win or two over playing the younger guys so I doubt we'll see him or Deontey Burnett or even more Rishard Matthews.
  21. I'm speaking more to the fact that our HC reports to the owner putting him and the GM on the same level. This organization needs to bring in a good football guy either at GM or above the GM and let him run the show. I'm not defending Macc but the way we're structured right now means Chris Johnson is our "football czar" c'mon. Either bring in a GM and let him run the show or put someone above the GM to run the show who isn't a Johnson.
  22. Yes but most of the other owners (at least the good ones) have competent GM's who run the football ops dept. Not a GM and HC who report to the owner which seems crazy, how would Woody or Chris know enough about football to decide on a disagreement between Bowles and Macc? Enough of these first time guys learning on the job it's time to get an experienced football guy in here either at GM or above the GM.
  23. It's a fair concern but that's why I think maybe more of that "football czar" role would be intriguing. Gets him out of the day to day of being a GM and is positioned as a promotion. I'm not saying he would def. take it, I obviously know nothing about the guy but I think it would be worth exploring. The Johnsons are not knowledgeable football guys and should not be running the football ops dept. It also puts them in a position to have to fire Macc, let Newsome or McKenzie decide. Not to mention, it probably gives us a lot more credibility in finding a new coach if they know the "football czar" has signed off on it.
  24. money speaks, give him enough money and he'll come work for us. If he doesn't want to be a GM, give him a Tom Coughlin type roll and let him pick the GM.
  25. I'd rather throw a blank check at Ozzie Newsome. I don't believe he's retiring I think the Ravens are forcing him out b/c they know they can't hold on to DeCosta much longer. McKenzie wouldn't be a bad second choice though. Bring in an experienced GM and HC duo, no more time to learn on the job.
