  1. I agree. I have my doubts that Mac KNOWS how to evaluate how a college QB will translate to the NFL and he will go hard after Cousins or Smith. He is a much better pro personnel person than a draft evaluator. I hope the Jets get a shot at Baker Mayfield and I think he will fall to the Jets at six through eight. The I would beef up the o-line with a center and draft a few cornerbacks as well.
  2. I think the ship has sailed as far as Hackenberg is concerned. I don't think he has it at all, but Petty looked to be improved quite a bit. As Glenn Naughton pointed out in his blog, if Woody Johnson has "rubber stamped" this season as only looking for improvement then Bowles has NO REASON whatsoever to NOT give Petty a four game look. When the Jets lose back-to-back home games to Carolina and KC, Bowles should be fired on the spot if he doesn't look at Petty down the stretch.
  3. No stone should be left unturned in this quest. It is VITAL to the future of the franchise AND the fan base.
  4. Rex and Tannenbaum celebrated like they got the greatest steal in the world too. To me it is Woody Johnson because it all starts at the top and this guy is totally clueless. He hires a HC before the GM and makes them "equals" who each report directly to him. As long as the Jets operate in this manner they WILL NOT WIN. The GM and HC have to be in lockstep with the same vision and view of how things will be done and they are not.
  5. I don't think Mac SHOULD have the power to force Bowles to play players period. That is the province of the HC and his job is to WIN GAMES. He feels McCown is head and shoulders better that either of the two other QB's on the roster and I think so too. Which is a sad indictment of the quarterback position on the Jets.
  6. Cutting Hackenberg would be like waving a red flag in front of a bull when it comes to defending the pick to the boss. He is NOT going to cut Hackenberg until the offseason when the Jets draft a first round QB. If THAT guys busts, then Mac can pack his suitcase cause he'll be out the door right away.
  7. That's what Petty and Hackenberg showed in pre season. Hackenberg is a total bust and Petty looks like a career journeyman backup type. At least that is what Bowles thinks, and he IS the HC at least for now. The young guys we should be worrying about are ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen. Stewart, I think, is a bust, but Hansen could be a good slot guy. Leggett is another of the young guys we need to see more of if he could ever get out of the trainers room. Brandon Shell is another that has to begin showing signs of development quickly. Jets totally need to move away from Wes Johnson and draft a center AND a guard to replace Winters who sucks.
  8. Baker Mayfield

    Totally agree but drafting QB's in the second and third rounds is defeatist thinking. Finding a good one is tough, and finding a great one is even tougher, but you have to keep at it and most of all you have to PLAY THEM. You can't find out what you have trotting out 38 year old losers every week.
  9. Baker Mayfield

    You are almost right about no defense in Big 12 but Mayfield and OU put up 38 points on TCU who came in giving up just 13 points per game. That said, I agree that guys are mostly wide open in OU's offense. I really like Mayfield, but fear he could be another Bryce Petty. A guy who put up video game numbers in college but didn't translate it to the NFL.
  10. Really? I don't think so.
  11. Not beating Tampa Bay should get him fired. This guy is NO kind of motivator. The offense had no chance of success against a 28th ranked defense. Five sacks given up to a team that came in with eight ALL YEAR. Bowles sucks. I have said it before and I'll say it again, Bowles has got to go.
  12. Why do you still watch the NFL?

    Force of habit. I watch, but not nearly as much as I used to. Used to be every game was one to watch, but the NFL has become something resembling the WWE. The rules regarding what is and what is not a catch is convoluted and subject to whatever the ref happens to want to call. In other words the officials have been given power to control the outcome of games and that is not something I want to watch or follow. The NFL needs to get back to black and white rules to bring the casual fan back and to win back the former hard core fan like myself. I watch all the Jets games and have seen the refs take games away from us with impunity. The Chiefs TE caught a TD pass that was almost an instant replay of the overturned call on Sefarian-Jenkins in the NE game and his was a TD. Why wasn't ours? Because it would have caused an upset of the referee fave Patriots.
  13. Manless forgets about three blown 14 point fourth quarter leads in games the Jets SHOULD have won. If they were 6-3 instead of 4-5 I would be in front of the bandwagon. The Jets will win 7-8 games this season, but Bowles is NOT coach of the Year material at all.
  14. Brock Osweiler at QB gives me hope the Jets CAN beat the Broncos who are falling apart and may have packed it in already.
  15. I think the Bucs, Broncos and Chargers are all beatable which would send the Jets into the season finale agaunst NE with a 7-8 mark and needing a win to get in. An interesting scenario for sure. A win and a playoff berth would guarantee Bowles returns however.
