  1. The question we should ask ourselves is: Is Wilson that much better than the guys who will be lurking in rounds 3/4?

    Because if the answer is no, and there's a guy with a live arm in those rounds, then taking Sewell, drafting QB in round 3/4, and then having an open competition with Sam could be the better route.

    no offense but I am still laughing. “ I know I haven’t run a country yet but I was the student treasurer of my 8th grade class”.  

    our board is the best.  Mims suck.  Base sucks.   Darnold sucks.   Who can tell amongst so much suckitude.  

    Please show me where in my post I said Mims sucks you halfwit.  I actually said it's a technique thing that is pretty coachable.  I'm not writing the kid off, but it looks like a pretty costly flaw in his technique right now, I saw it on his college tape and I still see it.

  3. He's drawing the #1 cornerbacks of good defenses lately, that's a part of it, but not the whole story.

    Gotta be honest, I really don't like the way Mims takes his 1st step off the line.  Look I'm not a true expert but I played WR in high school so I have a rudimentary idea of how technique at that position works and the first step just looks awkward.  His technique looks all off there and it seems to cost him a lot of potential burst, which can be the difference in the NFL.  Shawn Jefferson should have been working on this with him.  Once he gets going he's fine but he needs max efficiency out of his routes.

    So, Penel, we know you're the top Tackle prospect in the draft, won the Outland trophy and all that at the most prestigious O Line position in Football, but we're going to draft you at 2 and kick you to Interior Lineman, and in 4 years offer you a contract commensurate with the top Guards, and not the Tackle you've been your entire career. 





    I know Sewell is a great tackle prospect too.

    Here's also what I know: If the Jets draft Sewell the combination with Becton can be special.  Nobody is stopping them running to the left.  Strategically it can help tilt the playing field.

  5. Sewell looks like a potentially dominant pulling guard, and his down blocking looks great too, he's got quickness like I've never seen.  Becton we already know is a dominant LT.  This just seems too good to pass up.  We can build an offense around this.

    The more I think about it, I'm getting ok with Sewell at #2, with an aggressive free agent play at Allen Robinson, and another free agent play for a top OL like Thuney who they could either move to RG or play Sewell at RG and Thuney at LG.  That has the potential to transform the protection and fix Darnold with the right coaching.

    Draft Sewell and we can run to either side without the defense knowing which one it is

    I'm all for that.  Either you take the elite OL with the 1st pick or you take an elite skill position guy like JaMarr Chase.  I could live with both but starting with OL seems like the more sensible thing to do.

    If this organization gives Darnold a Mark Sanchez type extension, I'm out like Rex Ryan in dodgeball. 

    We can't possibly do that twice in a decade, right? 

    They should just let Sam hit the market.  I doubt the market for him will be that good.  Just resign him then if we feel that's the way to go.

  8. Yeah I wish Sam had that frozen rope deep ball but he doesn't.  Even though his 10-25 yard intermediate throws are darts.  Sam has only seemed to been able to connect with Robby deep thus far.  Hopefully we see some deep shots to Mims this week.

    Lewis is not with the team currently, while he deals with an off the field issue. Sounds like he has some mental health issues potentially that he's dealing with. He's done for the year.

    Understandable considering the team and coach he plays for

  10. Elfein seems like a decent run blocker but a liability in pass blocking, which is why they've done well running to the left side recently.

    I want to see the Jets get a solid LG who can both run and pass block.  That would make running off the left a staple of this offense with Becton in there too.

  11. Can Darnold be salvaged?  Sure, but I don't see his ceiling as anything more than an average NFL starting QB now.  The way he sees the field right now is pretty bad, worse than when he got in the league.  Sam also brings nothing to the table pre-snap.

    So if Sam stays (and I agree we have to keep him if we don't get the top pick) we at least have to draft a young guy or bring in a veteran to compete with him.  Then invest like crazy in o-line/skill positions with all the cap space and picks, try to find a competent HC, and hope for the best.

    Overall I agree, the franchise was set back 15 years today.  Perhaps the worst day in franchise history, or right up there with the day Belichick was hired and resigned.

    Another epic ownership failure.

    By the way, LOL at the thought of moving back to Queens. First of all, Queens is garbage. No one wants to be there except people from Queens. Convenient only for Long Island, which is not where most Jets fans live any more. Second of all, Queens is not the Jets "home". When the franchise was established, they played their games in Manhattan at the Polo Grounds. They spent 20 years in their 2nd place in Queens but have since been in NJ for 36 years. Their rightful "home" is Manhattan. The West Side Stadium could have been had with competent ownership to maneuver the political nonsense that occurred.

    NY Jets are named after the planes that came into LaGuardia flying right over Shea Stadium.  That is their true home.  The NY Titans played at the Polo Grounds.
