  1. I was thinking more along the lines of Garropolo (or maybe Tannehill?) rather than Dilfer. But not as a ceiling, more of a step up the ladder in Year 2. Rodgers / Mahomes would be fab, but I'm trying to keep my expectations reasonable.
  2. Of the "also ran" teams I'd say that we're more likely to surprise some teams next year than say Chicago, Houston or Detroit. So I get the basic premise of us potentially being "that team". But a Cincinnati like turnaround is probably stretching the realms of credibility. If we ended up 8-9 or 9-8 that would be quite a significant step forward in itself.
  3. I don't think people honestly expect a true "ground and pound" approach from the 2022 Jets ... more of a "run first" mentality, yes - but not a team that runs it for 3 / 4 / 5 yards and a cloud of dust every time and only throws out of necessity. What we won't be is a team that has Zach throwing 35 - 40 times every week and looking for him to air it out all over the field. He'll be expected to make a difference, but also to make use of the players around him and not try to do it all himself.

  5. He can get a suspension now for the allegations / bringing the game into disrepute etc. Then if / when the results of any civil suits come about they could suspend him again based on the actual outcome. I doubt this one will be over for a long time.
  6. Perfectly set up for next offseason to be an endless debate of "did we get better in the second half, or was it the schedule".
  7. Let's just show the world we're not a bunch of horses' asses!
  8. Patsies are usually not at their best until after the first 6 weeks or so ... how many years have we seen them look vulnerable early then turn it around mid season and go on a late run that has them in the mix, or the playoffs? If this is the game then bring it on. Let's see what this Mac Jones kid has. Show him the 2022 Jets are much more dangerous than the 2021 Jets.
  9. It's only going to make you miserable if you choose to buy into it personally. What the overall fan base / this board feels and what you feel individually do not need to match up. I usually take the approach of not getting too high with the highs, nor too low with the lows. I feel that works out. Especially in the regular season where every win is a proclamation of Superbowls aplenty and franchise QBs, and the next loss has the fan base dusting off the pitchforks to storm Jets HQ. "On to Cincinnati" or something like that. This forum will be super high for several months. Zach will "look great" in camp, Becton will be "beasting", that UDFA you never heard of will be the steal of all steals ... Just take it all with a pinch of salt (and a couple of cold beers).
  10. Key thing, in my opinion, is the subsequent run on receivers would potentially have been very different if we don't take WR at 10. Trade ups could have looked very different and you get a whole ripple effect. Or if we take a different WR. E.g. do Detroit trade up from 32 if we take Williams at 10?

  11. I can see him potentially playing end on early downs and switching inside on obvious passing downs. he's definitely far more of a pass rush threat at DT than a run stopper. General rotation and depth should help too. Saleh doesn't want his DL guys playing a large amount of snaps.
