    Just listened to the whole presser.

    The problem now is that Joe Douglas has gone from the quiet nerd in the background to being the front man and the guy responsible for hiring the new head coach.  It doesn't matter who reports to whom.  What matters now is that Joe is going to find himself squarely on the NY media hot seat, the honeymoon is over, they always need a new villain, and that is going to force him to try to win-now with a team that is far from it.

    Reporting structure doesn't matter when an owner is this impatient.  The concern now is that Douglas goes full-Maccagnan, loading up on free agents and retreads trying to eke out a respectable 9-7 playoff season to save his own standing when he should be doing the exact opposite.  Having Gase as a punching bag and a fall guy meant Joe Douglas had the luxury of time.  He doesn't now.

    It's put up or shut up time.  Douglas is determined to improve the culture, well the culture can only improve so much with Sam Darnold here.  Douglas needs the cajones to cut ties with Darnold, draft a new guy, and invest in the o-line and skill positions.  That's how you change the culture.

    I agree we don't need to go down the veteran Fitzpatrick/McCown road again, trying to go 9-7 to save face.  Douglas needs to show us he can find the right QB prospect not named Trevor Lawrence who can move the ball downfield.

    Didn't read your post, but read your thread title. Answer is simple.. Sam sucks. The longer we hold onto him, the more competition we throw his way and he loses said competitions.. the less he is worth. Sure, we can only get a box of Cracker Jacks for him now but after he loses out to Wilson he won't be worth a Henry Anderson. 

    Sam sucked under Gase.  In 2018 he looked to be on a good track.  I'm willing to see how he does in a new program with better OL and WRs, and to be able to do that with the aforementioned flexibility helps us evaluate 2 QBs at once in camp.

  3. If there's one thing NFL GMs like, it's flexibility.  If you're Joe Douglas, why lock yourself into one choice with so much uncertainty surrounding the franchise?  The draft is a crapshoot, and evaluating QBs under Adam Gase is also a bit of a crapshoot, as Ryan Tannehill has taught us, so the degree of confidence in evaluating both Sam and Wilson are low.

    So why not draft  Zach Wilson, keep Sam Darnold with no 5th year option, revamp the offense in free agency with spending on WR & OL, and let the cream rise to the top?  This way, the players can make the choice for Douglas.  Either Wilson or Darnold will step up under the new regime and seize the job.

    If it's WIlson, great we let Sam walk in free agency and take a comp pick. and we have a good QB under his rookie contract.

    If it's Sam, we give him a franchise QB contract and go forward with him, and then we have a Jimmy Garropolo-like trade chip in WIlson for 2022 to get us some draft capital, or a good player in return.  Yeah we'll be paying Sam a lot more, but Joe Douglas won't mind paying a QB as long the QB is actually good.

    (PS -Yeah, Yeah I know, the doomsday scenario is that neither QB is good.  And since its the Jets it's probably what will happen.)

    [Wilson] has character concerns, rich kid who is an entitled brat - uncle owns Jet Blue -, parents are a pain, not a leader, selfish, and he's a know-it-all. 

    "His positives are that he's super competitive, not to get scared and won't back down, extremely confident, very smart with keen recall and teammates will play for him." 

    Well as long as he has those positives, and he doesn't have addiction/partying issues like Manziel, then I think he can be ok in the NFL.

    James Lofton should be on a better announcing team . He ain't half bad .

    In week 1 broadcasting Jets/Bills he was a little homerish for the Bills.  In the 2nd game he was better.

  6. The next head coach needs to be a TEACHER and communicator with players on both sides of the ball.  You want someone who can develop a QB but it's on the HC to hire a good OC who can do that.

    We don't need Peyton Manning's coffee boy.  We need a guy who can coach up a young roster at all positions and improve their skills and turn them into a cohesive team that plays complementary football for more than just the last few weeks of the season.

    the Jets don't have any sort of Identity, drafting Sewell and moving Becton to RT would give the team an instant identity and you are right they can find adequate interior OL through FA 



    If it ain't broke don't fix it.  Sewell doesn't have the classic long arms that star NFL left tackles do.  I think Sewell will be a surefire hall of famer as a guard, and he might even be a great RT even if he's smaller than Becton.  Just my opinion.  Becton is a Walter Jones type who is excelling at LT, why change now?  Sewell is the versatile guy, you can play him anywhere else other than center and he'd probably play at a pro bowl level, but I think with his body type his most dominant position would be left guard.
