  1. I'd like more certainty from the OLs but like these two. Johnson/Claypool/Mims would be tripling down on big-bodied WR targets for Sam. Looooved Edwards-Helaire this season. What's the consensus on Niang vs. Tega Wanogho? They seem to be ranked very closely in most spots.
  2. 2015 Draft -- Mariota and Dorial Green-Beckham. I thought both would dominate.
  3. I love the "easy 2nd half schedule" line... as if losing all of those games for a higher pick would have somehow made us all feel better about the current status of the team and talent level. You play to win the game! If anything it's about having more picks and hitting on them than higher picks... but I digress. What bothers me about this year was the Dolphins loss (26-18 was a total embarrassment), the 2nd Pats loss (33-0 "ghosts" game), and the Bengals loss-- those 3 will make me sick all winter.
  4. Agreed -- OL is deep. You go best offensive player, WR or OL, in the first and then with the next three picks take at least 1 more OL. If the draft went: 1-Jeudy, 2-Jedrick Wills, 3a-Wanagho, 3b-Jaylon Johnson (CB) -- we'd all be thrilled.
  5. Jordan Jenkins is fine and I hope they bring him back -- the Maye pick (not player) was and remains awful. Fun fact, in the 3rd round that year we traded #70 for #79 & #160 (passed on OLs Elflein and Feeney) to take ArDarius Stewart at #79. In taking him we passed on Chris Godwin and Kenny Golladay to name two. This was particularly infuriating to me as I wanted an OL but then we took a WR who wasn't big or fast or could play ST. Also, this: https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/former-jets-receiver-ardarius-stewart-arrested-in-gun-bust/ They packaged #160 in another trade and used the picks on Dylan Donohue and Elijah McGuire. So not only did he whiff on the trade down, he totally whiffed on the picks we got to trade down. This is Macc's legacy. Let's all pray that JD is better than this.
  6. The first Douglas draft will be fascinating -- I hope we can all agree that even if it's not the first pick we should see at least a couple of OL brought on in the draft. I'd prefer doubling up with high picks, 2 out of 4 in the first three rounds, and maybe a developmental guy in the late rounds. Also, it would send a nice message to the fanbase to not draft an interior DL given the current depth and our ability to find UDFA gems like Phillips. Draft should consist of entirely DE/OLB, CB, and offensive pieces.
  7. I've said it before -- we would've been better off with Joe Beningo making picks from Mel Kiper's best available list over the past 10 years. It's absurd and it's also true.
  8. Best case scenario -- Leo plays well for the rest of the year, stops the runs, decent at getting pressure -- Jets still beat the Giants as Sam improves -- Giants resign Leo and we get a 4th in 2021 on top of the 3rd next year.
  9. Yeh - 1-year deal for Compton (totally fine with him and Harrison as depth guys) Agreed with LT in the Rd1 next year if we're in position, if we're picking top 6 the only question is where Jeudy and Andrew Thomas fall. Protection and Weapons next year -- Ok with a CB in the 3rd but no higher! haha
  10. Good thread -- it's not realistic to turn over the entire unit so these three are def part of the future. The O-line needs to be "built" through the next two drafts though... get us a legit Tackle and Center next year. A FA veteran Guard would be nice too.
  11. We could have had Joe Benigno make every pick from Mel Kiper's Best Available list over the past decade and the Jets would be a vastly better team. I know how absurd that sounds and I will still die on that hill because if you look at 2010 to now... it's true.
  12. Fair point -- Kalil didn't have a camp so I'm assuming they figured he needed time to get up to speed. One can only hope that he surprises in the weeks to come. RE: the others, is it a scheme difference? Beachum and Shell have been solid, but not great, in the past... but Winters has frankly always been a disappointment.
  13. Also, Frank Pollack is a well-respected OL coach, it's not like we have a first-year newb coaching them -- sadly we've seen worse case scenario with the OL as KO and Kalil are essentially done, and Beachum, Winters, Shell are who we thought they were. The worst part to me is Shell because I really thought we had a solid contributor in him. It's been said many times but the negligence with drafting OL has been criminal. Would love nothing more than a Brick-Mangold type investment in the next draft. Nothing else matters.
  14. Seriously... Douglas trades a 1 for either and people lose their minds. I want to see what he does with a full year and a full draft.
  15. Monty doesn't make the postseason roster, Boone has essentially said there's no set plan for his innings right now so it's all about 2020 for him. Tanaka Paxton Severino- Cessa - Bullpen Green - CC/Happ - Bullpen
  16. Looking back that first round had some total busts. I realllly wanted Fowler, Mariota, or Cooper. Leo is... fine -- speaking for myself I just expected more, not even sacks, just a consistent tough presence on the line. It's a perceived lack of pressure coupled with no sacks that gets people upset.
  17. Fair point-- what I'm essentially saying is I trust the Colts talent evaluators/process on Hairston more than I do the Macc-era guys who whiffed on all those late round injury prone DBs.
  18. After watching "With the Next Pick" about the Colts draft process and knowing Hogan was a big part of it... I'm totally fine with this move. The Colts CB depth chart has so many guys I wish the Jets would have taken a flyer on (Quincy Wilson, Jalen Collins, Desir, Langley, Tell). Instead they went with late round lottery tickets that were injured or had limited experience (McDougle, Clark, Jones, Nickerson, Austin). The one guy I thought would pan out was Juston Burris -- who now seems to be stepping up for Cleveland.
  19. Guy just went on a Twitter gif binge -- check it out -- absolutely hysterical. https://twitter.com/ryankalil
  20. Stupid... Brady's legacy can't be confirmed but Matt Ryan counts for the Falcons? Weak. Also, say what you want about Pennington but "worst failures" is ridiculous. Daniel Jones as a worst failure is absurd as well... maybe not a #6 pick but the kid hasn't even thrown a pass yet. On that note, thanks for sharing... still fun to read through haha
  21. Just want to say thank you for that Julie Newmar/Catwoman signature.
  22. Hopefully it's a situation where they were too deep on the OL and since Toth was hurt they had to let him go.
