    I am.  Though the 5.5 over/under for wins is definitely a concern.  But I still think we're going to have a breakout year.

    I think the Jets can win 7 to 8 games this season if Zack Wilson develops and Corey Davis plays to his potential and stops dropping easy ones. An improved o-line and RB's that can run and catch as well as 3 good TE's Jets offense should be much improved.

    In today's NFL...with the rules favoring the offense...it's all about the QB.  For the NYJ...it's all about Zach Wilson's success or failure.  Nothing else matters. 

    True. What I most want to see from Zach is to move in the pocket and out of the pocket throw with accuracy. I want him to use his athletic ability to run for first downs and just not take unnecessary sacks. It seems like when he is pressured he runs from sideline to sideline, losing more yardage instead of throwing the ball away or running for positive yardage. Baby steps for sure but necessary ones.

    People love to sh*t on Fitz, and he did suck in 2016, but his one solid season in 2015 is the only decent QB play this team has seen in 13 years.  

    The fault for that lies with Maccagnan. He let Fitz dangle for months before finally signing him just before the start of the 2016 season which left him with no preseason snaps and had to get up to speed as the season began. No win situation. I agree that Fitz in 2015 was the best Jets QB since Ken O'Brien. Pennington was good but his fastball was slow and every time he threw the ball it seemed to float to his WR.

    QB: Clear Bust - people that say he has potential are just hoping he does. I respect the optimism but its not based on anything but hope. Hes shown nothing but disaster after disaster

    On his last throw vs Miami he made Cole go to his knees to make the catch one yard shy of first down. I agree that we have just one skill position player - Elijah Moore - and the jury is still out on Wilson. I think he has talent but is being coached by a rookie OC who is being overseen by a rookie HC, so how much coaching can Wilson really be getting? Jets OL has been better since Fant took over at LT, and I don't see Becton as a LT, more of a RT/ RG player. Jets TE's don't block for sh*te and Wilson is being hit by unblocked blitzers. IDK what else the organization can do but ride it out. Maybe all these rookie coaches stay after school in the off season and learn their craft so they can actually be coaches.

    Douglas + Mangini

    Certainly deficient in the charisma department, but I think we'd build a good roster and Mangini teams always seemed prepared and technically sound.

    I still hold out hope for the Saleh regime in year 2, but right now I'd take Mangini. 

    I would agree with that. I think Mangini got a bad break when Favre got hurt. Jets were 8-3 at the time and I didn't think he deserved to be fired but I was elated when we got Rex Ryan - who could not STFU - and just be a coach. By year three I despised Rex and his big mouth and over sized ego which is why I carry the moniker Ex-Rex.

    My spicy and totally unsubstantiated take about Gase and Manning is that Manning stayed salty about the Jets from his draft and he pitched Gase to the Jets as one final **** you to the team that wouldn't draft him. Manning hasn't done anything to help his bud out since despite his growing closeness with the Broncos organization.

    I live in Tennessee where Peyton is King and I would punch him in his crooked nose because I think you are exactly right.

    I would honestly be more interested in an in-depth with Maccaganan and Bowles.

    The Rex/Idzik story was pretty obvious and played out pretty publicly.

    Bowles let the players walk all over him. Mental and physical errors were in abundance - as they are now - and there was little to no accountability. Mac just didn't have the chops for the GM job and Idzik was spectacularly bad at drafting. Rex Ryan had a good thing going until he let his ego take over and jettisoned players like Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery and several offensive linemen which precipitated the fall of Mark Sanchez.

    mostly the linebackers, Mosley is constantly out position, has no burst, no speed, no strenght, you bench that guy today, regardless of the outcome on Sundays, he could have 2 to 3 snaps a game at most, period....that is step 1

    Step 2, offseason: sign S Marcus Williams and CB Carlton Davis. You couldnt´t or shouldn´t sign any Edge Rusher because the money already asigned to Carl Lawson and Vinny Curry. 

    Step 3, draft: Depending on how the draft goes, maybe we get Aidan Hutchinson or Thibodeaux, if we don´t it is not the end of the world. Draft LB Brandon Smith from Penn State in the second round. Draft Chad Muma from Wyoming, CB Josh Jobe from Alabama, and S Isaiah PolaMao from USC in the later rounds. 

    Defense Fixed.

    DL Carl Lawson

    DL Quinnen Williams

    DL Folorunso Fatukasi

    DL John Franklin Meyers

    LB Quincy Williams

    LB Brandon Smith

    LB Chad Muma

    CB Carlton Davis

    CB Bryce Hall

    S Marcus Williams

    S Ashtyn Davis

    Nickel Michael Carter II

    Ashtyn Davis won't tackle anyone. Mosley is the Jets leading tackler although it is mostly five yards beyond the LOS.

    Is it the DLine?  Is the the LBers.  Is it the secondary? Is it a lack of pass rush? Is it the system? Is it the coaching? 

    I think we all understand that there is a dearth of talent across the board but what's the biggest issue in terms of talent?

    I had thought our DLine was going to be a strength but it seems RBs are running through the middle of the line sometimes unabated.  The number of missed tackles behind the line is alarming.

    But then we get to the LBers not making stops after a yard or 2 beyond the LOS. Or the inability to defend 80% of the bubble screens thrown at us.

    The secondary has a bright spot or 2 but too often guys are running wide open without a DB within 10 yards of the receiver.  Is that just great route running by almost every WR we've faced or is it a combo of the lack of a pass rush and too much time for the QB to survey the field.

    Honestly, I'm more interested in watching the offense and fixing that--have always been an offensive minded fan so I just cannot figure it out.

    Do we load up on LBs?  And then do we take some of the undersized converted LB/Safties and convert them back to safety?  

    Is that first pick--whatever it is--a pass rusher?  

    Honest question for the defensive minded folks here.  

    Trade both first round picks for the number one pick and a third rounder and then take Aiden Hutchinson of Michigan. I would also draft a hard hitting safety or two and fire Jeff Ulbrich. Saleh would be next on the firing line if the D looked this bad next year also.

    Realistically after cutting Shaq Lawson and GVR, a savings of $13M with zero dead money, the actual number should be around $62M.  

    Which means that JD can spend a whole lotta money on the wrong guys. Think Corey Davis was a wise move? Moses was a good sign as was Duvernay-Tardif, but Davis was a big reach and a big bust. Carl Lawson we'll never know because an achillies injury will rob him of his burst, so he is a lost cause as well.

    Alternative theory.  Douglas and saleh don’t want him to play again this year so that he does not reinjure himself as they attempt to trade him.  It’s not as if he’s a fit with this scheme and the 3 offensive players drafted in 2020, becton, mims and Perine, aren’t exactly favorites of the coaching staff.

    So JD and Saleh aren't on the same page is what you are saying. I think you are right.

    What i didn’t like, was that the answer to his first question was citing all the missed tackles.  Missed tackles, that’s all on the players, not my fault.  Not preparing for minchew, again, same offense, not my fault, no biggie, would not have changed the result.  The coaches, they’re working their asses off, so don’t point the finger at them.  And we faced the #1 rushing team, so what do you expect?  

    Despite this, i could actually begin to buy into it this game, if it didn’t happen every single game.

    Making excuses should get you fired. Once again, FIRE Jeff Ulbrich.

    His accuracy is very bad, and he came absolutely unspooled in the second half once the Eagles defense woke up, but this was definitely progress.

    He throws 100 mph with guys 10 feet away. Has no touch on the ball and his strength was supposed to be his ability to make plays 'off script'. Where is that? Darnold had more escapability than Wilson has shown. No rollouts and throws on the run, no take the ball down and run....I don't see much "progress" and in fact, I think he is a bust.

    I’ve had tix for 42 years, and have been a jet fan for about 55 years. Sitting there today, with that absolutely putrid effort, I can honestly say this is by far the worst Jets defense I can ever remember. It begs the question…..are our defensive coaches horrible , or do our defensive players just out and out suck?  Personally, I say the coaches stink, but interested to hear what others feel. 

    The answer is to stop buying tickets and attending games until the Johnson bros sell it. Buy no Jets merchandise, tickets and stay away from games. The Johnson's are bottom line guys and if their golden goose stops producing they will sell. I know that wasn't the question but it may be the answer.

    The entire world is laughing at this team but the homers dont want to hear a word of criticism.

    The Eagles laugh at the Jets and the Jets cry about it. Show some balls guys and quit crying all the freakin time. I think the refs screw us more than anything the Eagles did. Gave them two extensions to drives the Jets had stopped and allowed six points to be scored against them at a critical time when it was still a game.

    Then, as players started dropping like flies, things went straight down the tubes.

    Other than Marcus Maye the defense has been relatively healthy. Yes we lost Carl Lawson but who else has 'dropped like flies'? Ulbrich's defense gets gashed up the middle against the run in EVERY game even though we have Q and Fatukasi, how does that happen? They don't want to play for the guy.

    Absolutely putrid performance from our defense.  We had no chance in this game because of our defense.

    Once again - as they have many, many times - the Jets allowed a backup QB to completely dismantle them. Ashton Davis is a p@ssy who doesn't want to tackle and the d-line gets pushed around consistently. Quinnen Williams doesn't get nearly as many reps as Nathan Shepherd who stinks. I have no faith that these coaches can get the best out of these players.

    If New York gives White a second-round tender, that number jumps to $3.9 million. That would be pricey for a backup, but Joe Douglas might consider making an exception after White showed he can succeed in the event of an injury to Wilson.

    Who said he is going to be the backup?

    Don't pay him, he's a loafer. Guys like Donald, Simmons, Allen and even Autry chase

    the play as if the hair on their nuts were on fire, Quinnen's slow jog is pathetic. If you

    thought  Muhammed's effort after putting his John Hancock on a contract was grand larceny,

    don't give this slacker a chance to pull a Bernie Madoff on the Jets organization

    Reminds me of Leonard Williams - another slacker who only moderately improved after leaving the Jets.
