  1. Mekhi Becton has had his injury troubles, but he looks ready to roll already in the NFL offseason. The polarizing Jets tackle (soon to be right tackle?) was seen in another workout video on Saturday, this time casually walking back and forth across a gym while carrying 200 pounds in weights in each hand. Earlier this week, Becton was benching 400 pounds while lying on the ground. Becton injured his knee in Gang Green’s season opener last year, and head coach Robert Saleh indicated that the former first-round pick will have to navigate the challenges of maintaining an ideal weight for a player of his size. Saleh then said after the season that Becton would have to win his left tackle job back from Noah Fant, who took Becton’s place after surgery sidelined him after his Week 1 injury. Jets GM Joe Douglas said the expectation was for Becton to be a starter next season, and it looks like Becton is making sure he will be ready for a bounceback season. He even was wearing a sweatshirt that said “Big Bust” during his latest workout, perhaps sporting some motivation heading into his third NFL season. https://www.audacy.com/wfan/sports/jets/jets-mekhi-becton-casually-carrying-over-400-pounds Video at the link
  2. I thought they were going to call the block in the back on the return...
  3. Looks like MJJ was open on that 3 and 8 at the first down marker and TL just took the big shot instead. First week I'm watching TL.
  4. I've heard talk of Stafford to Pats for a couple months already up here. Belichick really likes him, Pats would be a scary good landing spot for him if they can get him a couple speedy yac receivers.
  5. Is it possible to get Fields and Olave in the 1st? LOL damn Olave didn't even have to slow up at all on that pass, Fields hit him perfectly in stride
  6. After seeing this 2nd quarter, I wouldn't mind drafting Fields #2. Kid is tough and looks great
  7. is it just me or did he look like he was holding his hip after that TD? Hope whatever it is it isn't serious. Sounds like he has really impressed so far tonight
  8. Now when they announce Fitz as the starting QB next week, he will go on to throw 5 picks haha Man Gruden with the ******* pussy ball. What analytics tells you to kick the FG in that situation when you have the TD with less than 90 seconds left for Miami with no timeouts to have to score a TD instead of a FG with 24 seconds left. Just common sense imo to take the TD not settle for the FG in this specific situation.
  9. Crazy to think the team was in better shape under his watch. I guess welcome back Woody!
  10. Just found out Loggains is calling the plays on offense today???? I was wondering why we were moving the ball like an actual NFL team today. Can't believe the mad man actually gave up playcalling
  11. I laughed so hard at this last night when I saw it. And every time I've seen it replayed. Its gold jerry
  12. ugly really really ugly, bring on week 1! lol
  13. Williams has also moved Jenkins to the left side instead of right side as it seems he gains more pressures from the left. I think this is why you hear about Jenkins and Becton facing each other so much.
  14. Awesome thanks for finding that! Yeah he really did shine last year, glad he'll hopefully be playing this year.
  15. Just noticed this on the CBS transactions list for yesterday: (sorry if this has been posted and discussed already) Aug 5, 2020 James Burgess OLB Reserve/DNR COVID-19 Opt-Out Looks like along with Mosley Burgess is also out for the year unless I'm reading this wrong. Source: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/teams/NYJ/new-york-jets/transactions/ More playing time for Zuniga I would assume! Hopefully he surprises.
  16. I just meant it as its hard to find defensive footage where Jamal isn't chasing the cameras to say look at me
  17. Did anyone notice no cut up highlights of Jamal. I need to watch the montage segments again but I think they made sure to exclude him from the montage
  18. Thanks for the well thought out criticism of the idea. I love VR technology so I'm an advocate of it and a little biased towards pushing adoption. To provide a few more details 1. US population is probably around 15-25% capable. (maybe around 50 million) Most of this content would be a seated experience which helps big time with the motion sickness. Technology has gotten so smooth with VR that motion sickness is now present in a very small minority of people. The latest tech for VR is 299.99, the Oculus Quest (requires no PC, phone or added hardware accessories, just put the headset on and off you go) 2. If they were to do this now, I would expect no price for admission and limited views around the stadium, like 1 end zone seat on each side and maybe 50 yd line or field level 50 yd line on each side. As a VR advocate I'd like to see NFL do this just to help drive adoption rate of VR through the roof. This pandemic has already caused Oculus Quests to be severely limited as many people stuck at home look for some type of escape. 3. Check out what the NBA has done with VR/AR technology: https://www.nba.com/xr and here is bit more background on the inner workings and the added benefit of producing VR content that goes behind the scenes . The producers of the NBA content do admit themselves that just trying to mimic a courtside seat is still difficult with todays tech. I'm hoping they at least put out a pilot test for a few games and if nothing else hope I've piqued some JetNation posters about the potential of VR!
  19. If someone doesn't introduce "virtual tickets" as a means to add revenue with Virtual Reality its a major missed opportunity in my opinion. VR has been experimenting with live sports and entertainment for a couple years now (especially with basketball/baseball and with the accessibility of higher quality headsets like the Oculus Quest and Valve Index for PC and better cameras/resolutions for 360 degree capture. It just makes sense to pilot virtual tickets where you pick a seat in the stadium and watch the game as if you were actually there. They could charge different prices on the quality of the seat as well as sell the same seats to different people as no one is physically occupying the space. Add in actual social communications between avatars in different "instances" of the game and you have actual proximity stadium noise in VR. just a little VR rant I've been thinking about recently lol
