  1. I mean as Jets fan I don't see how you can't at least have a little love for Rex and some of the excitement and relevance he brought to this franchise. At the same time, anyone who expected him to not say "outrageous" headline grabbing things as an ESPN personality obviously doesn't know Rex. I think he has too much pride to do this but I would love to see Rex try to go that Wade Philips route and go be a D-Coordinator for a few years on a good team with an offensive minded coach and come in to sort of "fix" the defense. Again, not sure he would ever do it but I would be interested to see him coaching again.
  2. This, we're talking about teams like the Steelers and Saints so it's not like we're getting a top 5 pick. It's a late first rounder for a team with an older QB who ideally wants to start thinking about the future. Breese has looked pretty bad this year so I think the Saints make a ton of sense.
  3. This sounds like a few teams calling about Q and JD picking up the phone just like he did with Jamal. I'm sure he isn't being shopped but no harm in listening if a team is really willing to blow them away. Of course Manish has to stir the pot for a few click views which I'm sure he got out of it
  4. I look at this way. Yes, it makes more sense at this point to start over. Get Lawrence on that rookie contract and build around him. Yesterday our offense was run around Frank Gore and Joe Flacco. Winning that game would do no one any good. But one thing to keep in mind is we still do have what many consider a good young QB here in Darnold and if we actually do win a few games this year it's going to be because Darnold played well. My point being, it's not like we're stuck with a McCown type QB, if we lose out on the Lawrence sweepstakes, we can still build around Sam with a better o-line WR, better defense an obviously better coaching. Lawrence is obviously this can't miss prospect that we can't turn down if we do end up with the #1 pick, but the consolation prize of sticking with Darnold and building around him isn't bad either.
  5. good point, didn't realize his contract was so affordable tbh
  6. On the flip side, Chuma Edoga has looked pretty decent, I wonder if there is any thought behind transitioning him to RT for next year regardless, solid depth guy to have on the o-line getting some snaps.
  7. Exactly this is headline baiting. I mean the report says, that they're not firing him this year but if the team doesn't start improving ownership won't be happy. Well obviously that's pretty much the job of the GM. The only interesting point here is their interest in George Paton but c'mon it only makes sense to put out multiple feelers when hiring a GM.
  8. It's obvious JD's plan is his plan and he's not going to let Darnold's timeline interfere with that. And unfortunately, I tend to agree with JD. While I really like Darnold and want him to be the face of the franchise we've shown time and time again that a quick fix and winning free agency isn't going to get us there long term. While I wish JD provided Darnold more weapons on offense to truly judge Darnold I do understand the strategy and building for the future. Fixing Idzik and Macc's terrible decisions unfortunately isn't happening overnight and with the timing of JD's hire last year the clock really only starts ticking for him now since he's only had one draft.
  9. Between not really being able to go to bars and the Jets being terrible I finally made the investment in Red Zone. I'll always check the Jets game first but I plan on watching a lot more Red Zone this year personally.
  10. Bottom line, no one ever denied JA was a great player but when you have a team with as many glaring holes as the Jets he becomes a luxury especially when factoring in this attitude and how much he didn't want to be here. The key now is JD drafting well.
  11. The Jets need a QB coach that isn't Dowell Loggains. Gase is the HC and while I know he was hired to be that offensive mind he can't be expected to run the team and coach Darnold up. I think what I gathered from this is that regardless of the talent around him on the roster he's not being coached up enough. Maybe Flacco can be that guy? Idk but the Jets coaching staff have failed him
  12. They don't have an interim owner who knows very little about football. Big difference, I'm not saying it can't be done but for the structure and team in-house it just doesn't make sense.
  13. Can the Johnson's please just let the football people make these decisions? It's time to remove this structure of the HC and GM reporting to the owner. They gave Joe Douglas a 6 year contract, he's brought in an experienced group to run the front office, let them do their job and stay out of it. How would Christopher Johnson really know better than Joe and his team if Gase is a good Head Coach? It's a ridiculous thought and poor management.
  14. this is probably the better way to put it. JD isn't necessarily looking for a reason to move on from Darnold but he's also willing to evaluate Darnold objectively instead of just assuming he has his qb.
  15. I'm starting to wonder if JD is less sold on Darnold then we all think. I mean looking at the evidence, he didn't draft Darnold, he hasn't exactly gone out of his way to give Darnold weapons in a really important year evaluation year, he drafted a QB in the 4th rd. That's not to say JD is tanking for Trevor Lawrence but just maybe he's looking at this as a major evaluation year for Darnold as apposed to putting all the chips on the table this season to build around him (And Gase for that matter). I'm assuming Darnold will be better than he was on Sunday but I'm starting to be of the belief that Darnold may really be playing for his job.
  16. I believe in JD more than any other GM in the Jets recent history (which isn't saying much). I think he has a plan and is building for long term success. The problem in the past going back to Tanny is we've always been more concerned with winning the offseason and free agency. This may give us a good year or two but we're never really building for sustained success. You can't replace bad drafting with free agency eventually it'll come back to haunt you and that's what we're facing now. Unfortunately Darnold throws that plan off a bit. This is a big year for Darnold and may determine whether we invest in him long term or not but yet again we'll be in a position where we'll likely be wondering if it's Darnold or the weapons or is it Darnold or the coach. I think unless we're really bad in a position to draft Trevor Lawrence Darnold will be given at least one more year but it would be nice to have that definitive answer once this season ends.
  17. These injuries are just getting crazy now, and if I recall correctly Gase does have a track record with injuries. He already changed the training staff, who's the next scapegoat?
  18. This first episode didn't change my opinion but I've always been a fan of Anthony Lynn, a shame we ran him out of town with Rex. Offensive coach, seems well liked by his team, seems to be a leader, and worked his way through the ranks. Would've been an interesting hire instead of the Bowles route. Not that Bowles wasn't qualified at the time but we seemed to completely overlook Lynn which I blame Charlie Casserly for, he was obviously always going to pick one of his "friends" in the league.
  19. Not gonna lie kinda surprised he survived the mass layoffs at The Athletic
  20. We'll see how long this lasts, we've seen this act before with wannabe Bellicheks including our own Eric Mangini. The act can wear thin quickly if they don't start winning.
  21. 8:30a.m. flight for me Monday morning after the Super Bowl, ugh.
  22. Not the Dolphins are a successful franchise but reading stories like this just reminds me how a** backwards Mac's strategy of building a roster had been. He invested all our assets in ILB, run stuffing D-Lineman and Safeties and never did anything to try and build the O-Line, Cornerback position or edge rusher.
  23. Please fix the o-line Joe before it's too late for Sam
