    Previewing the Jets O L

    The problem with these stats, especially for the OL, is that it isn't just a change in scheme, or individual stats. Maybe it is more like, didn't play great at Seattle. Then played great when he was playing between Brick and Mangold. Then, not as great when he played between JAG and Mangold. Then got worse when he played between JAG and crap. Not to mention that we went from Ivory, Marshall, and Decker to Forte, unknown, unknown - it changes the offense and how the defense play them. Not making excuses, but just saying it is more complicated than just man vs. zone.
  2. They may be correct, but I don't care if they only win 2 games next year. We in theory have our franchise QB and it is as excited as I have been to watch the season start as I was in the offseason after Sanchez and the Jets were in the AFC championship...
  3. I don't think they would release Teddy unless he can't play, I assume that they may want to trade him to a playoff caliber team that looses their QB. I just thought the Hack was a cheap and effective 3rd who was under contract for 2 years. Even if Teddy stays, I think he is gone after this year unless Sam is a bust. I wouldn't count on much from a compensatory pick either if Macc is active in free season next year, but only time will tell.

    NY Jets Trade Christian Hackenberg

    I don't mean to pick a fight, but if I think it is fair to say that if you think 3 2nd's is selling the farm, not sure what you would call what we would have had to give up to trade all the way up for a QB we would be happy with...
  5. It is unlikely that the Jets will keep both McCown and Teddy; so there was a spot at 3rd. Either Hack is really bad (why not carry him a bit for a conditional 7th) or they must really like the UDFA they picked up.
  6. This is great for the fans and the NFL. As a fan, I enjoy it a lot and the Browns should be fun to watch this summer. I am glad, however, that the circus has left town and we have a no-nonsense coaching staff and FO. It may be boring, but it is better for the team in the long run. We don't want the circus or to put our young guys in the limelight; the New York market is crazy enough without feeding the beast.
  7. This 'movement' is hopefully due in a large part to the improvement of our scouting. The Darnold story showed us that often scouting starts more than a year before the draft. Also, covering smaller schools is harder because of the shear number and that their isn't as much available hype about these players to help whittle the field down. Mac's first year used Idzik's scouting team. Let's say it took a year or two more to get our scouts to the point where they have the ability and bandwidth to scout the smaller programs. That could explain why last year was the first selection and this year there are more. While this year appears to be great for drafting QBs and RBs, it was not very good for other positions. Also, no picks in the 3rd and you have a greater need to try and find the hidden gem. Hopefully these guys will make the team and contribute.

    OTA Pictures

    I am okay if he is more of a coach than a player at this point. I think he also fills two other important roles as well: 1. default starter (if Teddy can't) to take pressure away from Sam if he needs the cover 2. provide for a real QB competition (again if Teddy can't); instead of being handed the keys, Sam has to earn it (unlike Sanchez). He also provides a reasonable back up if Sam needs to be benched for health, mental health, or whatever...
  9. Sorry, I have to call BS. While I agree with your sentiment about running someone's reputation without them getting due process, to just assume that there was no wrong doing and that the 'woman' made it up because of regret is equally ridiculous. It is okay to smear her, but not him? She didn't bring this up now; she isn't looking for publicity nor money. To attack her credibility without all of the facts is no better than attacking him. if she did just regret a bad decision she likely wants to forget it. If she was a victim she probably wants to try and move past it. As far as being a good guy. History has more often confirmed that there are many bad guys whom everyone feels are a good guy because they don't know any secrets. And, IF things happened the way you say (not sure how you would know this either way, but...), two guys having sex with a drunken woman especially if she is too drunk to really consent, aren't exactly up for 'good guy of the year' awards... In case you haven't been paying attention, powerful men have been falling from grace all over the place for things that they allegedly did 20 years ago. You would think that the team did their do diligence. And whether he was guilty, innocent, or just a stupid decision, some actions follow you forever.
  10. It sucked to loose the picks (even with us not having a great track record with seconds), but I can see a scenario where we get left with scraps at QB had we not moved. If Browns go with Barkley first, the Giants draft Darnold (or trade pick for Darnold), Colts likely trade out for a team wanting a QB, Browns take a QB at #4 leaving 3 QBs gone; with the run on QBs it is likely Denver trades out, and we get the 5th QB; maybe Denver doesn't trade, and we get the 4th. For a QB, it was too risky - I wish we still had those picks, but happy how it turned out...
  11. I buy all of the arguments about talent - Petty and Hack could not beat out Fitz and McCown, fine. I cannot get around Forte playing over Powell (although both vets).
  12. We have suffered as Jet fans for a long, long time. Sure, it is way too soon to put him in the HOF, but this is the most exciting time as a Jet fan for a long, long time. I say, let's enjoy the hype while we can. We hopefully have our franchise QB for the next 15 years - let's be happy. There is plenty of time for the reality of how bad this team is to sink in. In fact, I don't care if the Jets only win 2 games next year and Sam doesn't play that way, it will still be a great season. J E T S, Jets, Jets, Jets.
  13. I thought the D- was generous, but the Browns always help out the curve...

    Dolphins claim Petty

    Now you know why he want to Miami - He doesn't want to take another shot like that again.
  15. That would be the best one yet...
