  1. JD has to nail this draft and the team has to show significant improvement this year or else we will officially be stuck in the middle of yet another 4 year rebuild cycle that takes us nowhere. He got his HC, presumably he's going to get his QB, so I can buy the "excuses end now" premise of the OP. Do I expect the Jets to be a playoff team this year? Of course not. Do I expect the team to improve enough to the point where the consensus of all the armchair QB's, journalists, and "experts" out there will consider the Jets to be an "up and coming" team in 2022? Yes. Another 3-4 win season will not be acceptable.
  2. #2 - Zack Wilson #23 -Najee Harris #34 - OL
  3. There is no denying that the Jets have been terrible at developing QB's over the last 20 years, and while I've always gritted my teeth and have been the eternal optimist when it came to "next year" and "the next GM and HC," most of the time I was just waiting for the next crash and burn. Jets fans have been programmed to think this way. So while it might be hokey for me to say this, I really do think that THIS time it's going to be different. I like the GM, I like the new HC, and for the first time in a long time, it seems like there's an actual plan in place that the entire organization is behind. Let's see if they can finally deliver.
  4. The Wilson's are Trevor Bauer level trolling Jets fans.
  5. I've drank the Kool Aid on Wilson and would now be disappointed if that's not the pick. I do think Fields is going to be a successful NFL QB though and would be able to live with him as the pick, but not before I bitched and moaned about it for a little bit.
  6. The Jets cannot make the same mistakes they did with Darnold and fail to provide him with legitimate help on offense. This draft has to be entirely focused on offense in the early rounds IMO. I would like to see picks #23 and #34 used for a RB and OL in that order.
  7. The Jets can do no right as far as the local and national media are concerned. Years of losing and front office ineptness have given them all a free pass to dump on the Jets whenever they want. If the Jets kept Darnold, they would have been criticized for sticking with the lowest rated QB in the league over the last 3 years, and now that they've moved on, they're criticized for giving up on a promising young QB. They can't win, and deservedly so. The ONLY way to change this cycle is to become a consistent winner.
  8. I understand the need to defend our GM, but the Jets didn't dress Morgan once all year, even for the games that Darnold was inactive for. Very Hackenbergian, don't you think? Before anyone goes berserk, I'm not saying Morgan is as inept as Hackenberg, I'm saying that there was apparently no plan for Morgan. If you're going to make this pick, at least TRY to develop him A LITTLE during the season. If that's not your plan, then the Jets shhould have tried to fill another position of need at 125 that would have actually gotten some playing time and at least give the coaches something tangible to assess the player's value going forward. The fact that Morgan was getting 3rd string reps every week during a historically bad and lost season tells you all you need to know about what the Jets plans are for him. He will NEVER take a meaningful snap for this team. We all know this. A complete waste of a pick by every single measurement of draft picks. Maybe before his eventual release down the road, the Jets will pull a "Rudy" and let him take 1 snap in a real game just so he can actually prove he was on the team.
  9. That's all well and good, but drafting a player KNOWING he won't have ANY impact or play one single snap before the season even starts on a team that had the least talent in the league is a STUPID pick. The 4th round is still draft territory where you should be trying to find players that can contribute to the team THAT year. Project picks should be reserved for the 6th and 7th rounds, not the 4th.
  10. I Like JD and it seems like he does have a plan, but the Morgan pick was definitely a stumble. When your team is full of holes, picking ANY player in the 4th round that you KNOW will not likely take one snap in an NFL for that upcoming season and potentially EVER is a stupid pick. It was a stupid pick at the time and it looks like an even dumber pick now.
  11. The national media always grabs the low hanging fruit, and the Jets are low hanging fruit and have been for a long time, and deservedly so. That being said, the 2021 narrative for Darnold and the Jets has already been written, pretty much no matter what actually happens. Darnold was the lowest ranked starting QB over the last 3 years, so of course he's going to do at least marginally better than he did last year, because it's pretty tough to be ranked lower than dead last. This will translate into countless stories running with the "Darnold is a decent QB and the Jets should have never given up on him" narrative. Regarding Zac Wilson or whoever the Jets draft, unless they play like Mahomes in year one, the narrative will be - QB X was only marginally better than Darnold - the Jets made a mistake by giving up on him. Book it.
  12. While I’m glad and relieved that the Jets have decided to move on from Sam, I am profoundly disappointed that it didn’t work out. I was all in on him and thought he would be great here. He deserved better than the Jets gave him and deserves a fresh start elsewhere. His failures were a combination of his own shortcomings and the direct and collateral damage from having the worst GM and HC tandem in the history of the sport. I religiously root for the laundry and never care about players who move on from the team, but I will be rooting hard for Sam’s success with the Panthers.

  13. Because of 20 years of terrible ownership, mismanagement, and a poor product on the field, it's obvious that convincing top shelf players to play for the Jets is no easy task, so the Jets of course have to overpay to get good players. That's the nature of the beast, but at some point, you actually have to lure some of those players over. Maybe JD isn't doing a good enough job of selling the Jets to these FA's or they're just not interested in coming to a toxic and unstable team no matter what. Sadly, I think it's the latter, and that's why JD has to NAIL every damn pick in this draft. It's the only way this team is going to truly move forward.
  14. Davis is a solid and reliable but not a true #1. I think the Jets are allergic to true #1 WR's. Hopefully Mims turns into one this year. Could be a very productive 1-2 punch.
  15. At some point, your savvy , young upstart GM needs to sign some top tier players at positions of need, no? How many seasons do we have to wait for this to happen?
  16. Darnold is a broken QB and needs a lot of fixing before he can become a consistently effective player. I have more faith in the new regime to reboot the position and pick the QB they think can hit the ground running in the NFL than trying to fix a 4th year QB. As I said a million times, QB's who have been cumulatively below average for their first 3 years in the league very rarely if ever magically transform themselves into all pros. Time to move on from Darnold.
  17. I was a big Darnold supporter but I personally lost faith somewhere in the middle of this past season. Week after week of bad decision making and his way too casual attitude for losing and post game "I gotta look at the film" mantra just wore me out. One more thing - Let's not partake in revisionist history here. Most of the NFL "experts" and top analysts had Darnold as the consensus #1 pick in his draft, and I was excited as hell to get him.
  18. Can't hurt to be there, except for the silliness it drums up within the QB starved Jets fanbase, of course.
  19. Anyone but Darnold. My preference in order: Watson Fields Wilson
  20. agree. It would be profoundly disappointing.
  21. Trade him and never look back! He's a classic case of "needs a change of scenery."
  22. Getting back to Heather for a second, I had this one on my will as a kid. Got a lot of mileage out of it. Worth every penny.
