  1. So what makes anyone think the deal was held up more by the bonus payment timing and not the offset language??? Both sides gave on an issue. Wilson and his agent are as much to blame as anyone for this 2 day delay. JD is just doing his job. Agents need to make themselves appear valuable to NFL rookies. Hire me - I got Zach Wilson a "unique " deal.
  2. It is my understanding that Lance agreed to offset language. Why is nobody blaming Wilson and his agent?? The tendency on this board is to automatically side with the player and blame Jets management. Doesn't Wilson have confidence in his ability to play four years with the Jets? This"just give him what he wants" mantra is ridiculously simplistic. I'm glad many of you are not negotiating on my behalf. If many posters on this board were running the Jets, they would have an average age of 38 and be $100 million over the cap and still go 2-14. Revis would still be playing, Fitz would be the

  4. Don't Never Give Up. I guess Moses will now always have to be shirts rather than skins.
  5. If he misses a few days of camp, it is not the end of the world. Almost 6 weeks to opening day. Let's see how long this really lasts. And who cares about 'Moving the Chains?" And for a former Jets employee, Pat Kirwan has been as anti-Jets as any NFL media person for years. He loves the Pats and the Steelers though.
  6. Let's put the blame for this issue squarely where it belongs - Not on JD or Wilson, but with the players' agents. The NFL moved to the slotted rookie compensation scale to avoid rookie holdouts that were a big thing a few years ago. Now that the main bargaining chip is off the table for rookies because the contract value and term is set, agents needed an issue to demonstrate their "worth." Until a few years ago, every contract contained offset language. Now, about 30 of 32 teams employ or try to employ some form of offset language. So the agents needed an issue - otherwise why do you need
  7. You leave out that Fitz was the QB that started this horrible run you mention when he came crashing down to earth from his mediocre perch in 2015 to a typical disaster in 2016. There is a reason he on his 9th team and that is because he can't even sustain mediocrity. He stunk in week 17 in 2015 and the stench continued in to 2016. That stench led to the Darnold debacle. If Fitz was even mediocre, as you claim, he could arguably still be the Jets QB ( putting aside how horrible that would be).
  8. Before the mods lock this thread, we should have protocols on whether and how to discuss this issue, but it is inexorably intertwined with NFL football this season. When player X has a hard time picking up the playbook and is unable to attend certain meetings because he is unvaccinated, it has football implications. When a player is unable to play a game because of a positive tests and can't clear protocols, vaccination status may be relevant. When the Jets or another team have. to play a game missing numerous starters or, worse yet, forfeit a game, vaccination status is not only relevant
  9. Vaccination rates, status, protocols and the impact positive tests have on a team are going to be a big part of NFL football. I think the prohibition on discussing this topic is inane. It will be near impossible to discuss football with season without talking about vaccines. My guess is that it becomes almost moot because the NFL is going to make life very difficult for the unvaccinated. By September, the concept of an unvaccinated player will be relatively rare.
  10. This is spot on. I will never understand the "Pay _________ whatever he wants" crowd. They have no understanding of the negative impact that has on the Jets ability to field a competitive winning team. Every fan should want their team to underpay its players. The way you win in a salary capped league is when your players outperform their contracts more than the other teams. That's it in a nutshell. It's why having successful QBs on a rookie deal for as long as possible is such a big deal.
  11. You are smarter than that. Yards and TDs can't be the only QB metric that matters. Fitz was definitely carried by Decker and Marshall in 2015 and a lot of good fortune. It was an entire season of him throwing the ball and saying "go get it" and they did. They were both phenomenal. Fitz' constant errant throws were harmless, until Buffalo. I don't see the magic in 2015. For me, it was a frustrating season that ended in an unbelievably frustrating loss because Fitz and Revis crapped the bed in a big spot. It was no different than 2000 when the Jets blew the last game vs Baltimore on
  12. Fitzgarbage has Pennington's arm (post injury), Favre's brain (riverboat gambler trying to force everything), and Brady's arrogance (He thinks he's a great QB). That is a horrible combination.
  13. 15 years. 9 teams. 0 playoff games. Even in the stretch that Af JF finds so remarkable, he was released twice - once in favor of Winston and the other for Tua. And he went 11-14. Which one of these things is not like the other? I give him credit for bamboozling 8 teams after his career started. Washington will be in the QB market next offseason. Will some other team pay this fool's gold?
  14. Every other year is Fitztragic's worst year. That is why he has bounced around the league like a super ball. I don't like him at all. A QB who has been in the NFL for 15 years and has never ever won a big game in his life. Watching him play QB is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. You just know the crash is coming. He has a weak arm and takes unnecessary risks. He was carried in 2015 by Decker and Marshall, who were both incredible and won many 50/50 balls and bailed him out of many mistakes that he makes over and over. It was clear that 2015 was an outlier and that he would ne
