    I mean you say that... But I'm pretty sure people said the same about another Jets bust.



    Geno Smith ending the Jets’ playoff hopes is almost too cruel to be true. The 32-year-old Smith rarely missed throws all day and played a cool and competent game to lead the Seahawks to what ultimately became an easy win.


    Mike White just wasn’t good enough in a must-win game. White threw an interception on the Jets’ first drive and seemed a little bit off all day, with his second pick essentially sealing the game for Seattle early in the fourth quarter.

    Only 8 years and then watch out for Zachie Poo!

    I don't get the hype around Lamar.  He certainly isn't helping his team this week...  Running QB's are an injury waiting to happen 

    The "Running" aspect being a cause for greater injury or being more frequently injured is not supported by data. "Pocket" passers get injured at a grater rate (ie more injuries per play). 

    I think there's reasons for this perception, but the studies conducted don't back it up at this time.

    I hope the new OC goes back to a gap/power scheme.......implementing Wide Zone takes time that this regime doesn't necessarily have

    It's complicated. You have to know what the guys next to you are doing. When the guys next to you change every single freaking week, it makes it even harder.

    It was a concern I had when they decided to move to it. Even if you have 5 guys that can do it.. that's not enough because it's likely one of those guys will be out at some point then the juggling begins.. this guy is out.. that guy gets moved over here and this backup is now in over there. Tough scheme to execute without having guys who know and are comfortable with it. A lot of growing pains for a team that didn't really have the time to put it in place.

  4. Just an aside.. Miami switched to the same blocking scheme this year and their line was a mess too (an even bigger mess than it was previously which is achievement). They did see some progress as the year went on, but still a huge problem for them.

    This is the perfect time to bring in an experienced OC, before getting into which one, but there are recently-fired offensive-side HCs, and OCs from any just-fired HC's staff, though admittedly I haven't taken a hard look at the list myself (not like I'm doing the hiring anyway lol).

    Just generically, it's needed now because the GM and/or owner (if Woody wants to get further involved) will then have a viable option should they decide Saleh needs to go during the season. 

    Bring in an OC with plenty of experience, including as HC. He brings in new position coaches on offense - QBC, WRC, RBC in particular - with whom he's very familiar, ideally. Then if a change needs to happen pick the best & most experienced of the 3 to take over as OC (at least in name) if the OC gets promoted to HC midseason.

    Saleh won't like it from a job security standpoint on paper, and technically the offensive position coaches are still all his staff not the OC's staff so he may see to it this doesn't happen, but for the team rather than for the HC personally this is what should happen.

    First move to correct a ludicrously under-experienced staff that wasn't exactly handed Peyton Manning from his late 20s to be the QB.

    He doesn't have the luxury of worrying about experienced coaches taking his job any longer. He needs to win at all costs next season.

    I can’t imagine Lamar sitting out a playoff game that he is able to play in to make a point about a contract. Who in the league would want a guy like that?

    People are just speculating. Every game he misses costs him millions of dollars on his next deal.

    How many second chances does Joe Douglas get?

    1) there was pressure on him to get the QB position right when he arrived. (you would think they discussed his plan at QB when they hired him)

    2) there was pressure on him to get the QB position right when they traded Sam Darnold.

    3) Now there's pressure on him to get it right when his hand-picked choice to replace Sam Darnold sucks.

    Douglas is not the guy. I wish he was fired 

    It's like you don't even know it's a sixteen year plan

    Been thinking this all night. Hoping for good news but an update with great news would have been amazing. I prayed for him, will continue to do so.

    I know he’s not out of the woods yet but I just wanted to pass this along 



    I went to the Bills forums figuring they'd have more information. I've held an opinion that all fanbases are mostly equal, but sometimes it helps that people running the communities are good people. The guy who owns the equivalent of this place for the Bills (twobillsdrive.com) is spending his time calling other Bills fans stupid for donating to Hamlin's charity and throwing their money away.

  9. ESPN: It's unconscionable that the NFL didn't suspend this game immediately.

    Also ESPN: Here's a report on the mode of transportation that Stefon Diggs took to the hospital

    This a real guy?

    I can't really say. I probably shouldn't have posted it without making sure he is real. The account itself has been removed.

    Makes the Jets "3 6 year plan" look even stupider, for sure.

    The Vagiants were every bit as much in the hole after Gettleman as the Jets were after Mac. 

    They fixed it a lot faster.

    And if you (accurately) believe that the Jets have more talent on the roster, then what does that say about the coaching staff?

    Fixed your typo

  12. When MLF came in and tried to install the Zone Blocking scheme with players who weren't right for it and had little experience with it was when I knew he was going to be a problem.

    McDaniel did the same thing in Miami and their running game and pass blocking have been a disaster. 

    The Jets counted on Hall to get huge chuck plays and Miami has counted on Hill/Waddle getting huge chunk plays. When those weren't available.. both of them have regressed mightily on offense. 

    This is why Daboll should have been hired when interviewed. He doesn't force his scheme on players who can't execute it.
