  1. Hmm; top NFL prospect playing on a terrible team - generational QB - how is he not outplaying Mahomes? Video games, high speed internet, and social media has ruined this generation Herbert is the exception. Most QBs, especially ones drafted in the top 2 who go to really bad teams, take a while to become productive in the NFL. It also takes a while for such bad teams to build quality around them and they are often on new coaching staff and schemes. To expect him to come light up the NFL is ridiculous. I haven't watched any Jags games, but even if this guy will be great, expecting him to be this year is silly. Sometimes these QBs come out and fail; or, they take years to win the big game; sometimes they start our strong and go to 2 AFCC games back to back and fade away
  2. Not in the hunt? What? I think only Houston has statistically been eliminated. "So, there is a chance"
  3. The Jets are the Prozac of the NFL. Depressed, can't seem to win a game - get a Rx for the Jets. In fact, if teams could pick their schedule I would play the Jets before Detroit.
  4. Center and RG are more important IMO than RB and 3 Edge Rushers...
  5. I agree, we haven't given up on Zack, Moore, or Becton, why Ammendola? I would give up on Mann before Ammendola.
  6. a win in a competitive game would require a defense who can stop the other team from scoring and can give the QB the ball back. While 18 points (maybe 21 with a kicker who can hit an XP) won't win many games, if the defense held the Eagles to 24 or so points and gave Zack the ball back a few more times he would have had a shot. Remember that Mac Jones is given a great defense, and is not expected to put the game on his shoulders - this is how Brady was eased into his first SB. Give Zack a few more quality WRs or TEs and a great defense and then you can ask him to give you some wins.
  7. Yep - JD thought, wtf, might as well roll out a crap roster.... While his first draft isn't looking great right now (i choose to give him a mulligan for his first draft and no combines) the team was a complete wash of young talent; there was no depth; and a bunch of aging vets. While I am not convinced that JD is the one, any expectations of a quality team at this point were misplaced. We decided to do a real reboot - only adding a few vets for key spots and mostly relying on rookies and second years to fill most of the spots. Many of these young players wouldn't be starting on other teams. They are all young - and they are playing a new scheme with a new coaching staff; when the Pats roll out rookies they have earned that spot by beating out other quality players and they are running in a proven scheme next to other starters who know the scheme - it is much easier for them succeed surrounded by players that can teach them what to do and cover for them a bit. Here the players are beating out other scrubs and being surrounded by other scrubs who don't know what they are doing. This season and likely a good part next year isn't going to be pretty - sadly I had hoped that we would be better, but ...
  8. While I agree in theory, I have to admit that the defense is even worse than I thought it would be, or maybe it was better than I thought early on, and regressed to expectations. I realize that we are starting young, inexperienced, and raw CBs and that our safeties are hurt requiring the backups. What I don't understand is that the DL is supposed to be our strength and it looks like Williams is very good at LB for us and everyone is saying that Mosely is playing great - so, why is our run game so bad? DL pushes up the field and LBs are supposed to cover. So is it the DL? LBs? or is it the coaching and the scheme?
  9. I was thinking the same thing - why not give him the rest of the year to see if he improves? While he was below average, he had the potential to be quite good - this year the W/L didn't matter as much, but hey... NEXT Maybe it is time to end the Mann experiment as well...
  10. I don't care if you are overly critical of the players; you are taking this out of context of a long thread; my point was that I don't understand why some fans seem to root for players on their team to fail. Also, comparing players to other players; expecting better results or unrealistic results can be classified as overly critical. Calling a player a midget or pig on toothpicks isn't being critical, it is a poor attempt to rationalize why JD sucks. And then, when the 'midget' plays well they disappear is a bit self-serving. That being said - I didn't understand why fans would want players or the team to fail to justify hatred of a GM or HC. JD is here, Saleh is here, these players have been drafted - what good does 'rooting' against them do? That being said - hate, rant, name call all you guys want. I just don't get it. Enjoy the misery...
  11. Sorry, but calling a player fat, lazy, short, or a bust isn't a joke it is a complaint that the player was a wasted pick. I also don't agree with the grown men Most fans who vent here are overly critical on any player or coach that they don't like because they wouldn't have picked them, or the GM they don't like picked them. These are 20+ kids who are trying to adjust to the NFL - some will fail, some will succeed, and they all do it on their own pace. I get that you aren't like that, but I think you are giving some of the more vocal fans more credit than they deserve.
  12. I get it, but when people are bashing players before the season starts, or calling them names like midget or lazy, or whatever it is rooting against them. When the player does the same as a QB that everyone is talking about as rookie of the year and people talk about the wins, but when he wins, they talk about the play it is either rooting against him or it is unrealistic expectations. When the player does well after all of the growth issues and the same people don't post or move on to the next player that isn't HOF after 8 weeks, that is rooting against him. I am as frustrated as most on the lack of growth of both Zack and the team, but I don't think he is the worst QB ever, or that Saleh and JD should be fired, or that Mac Jones is a better prospect. The difference is that I knew this was going to be a rough year for Zack and that the Jets would only win 3-4 games - so I guess I have different expectations. Zack may turn out to be a bust, but no way do we know that now; and no way does his poor and erratic play make him the worst QB in the history of the Jets. Any QB is going to struggle on this team (some more than others). A rookie QB more so. Just my opinion.
  13. Our fan based roots against players all of the time. While I don't have time to trudge through the posts, consider the: He is a Bust; we should never draft a QB in top of 1st, If JD picked him, he sucks, Fields is better - all before a single snap. Many look for any excuse to call him terrible - some will kill him for a few INTs and then root for White to get a shot after a 4 INT game. See the reaction to the comparison of his stats against the stats of Mac Jones against same 4 teams. We also get the player is soft if they are hurt; Becton is a fat lazy pig on toothpicks; Carter is too short; they cast shade on anyone because JD drafted them and they don't like JD or they didn't want that player over another. They may not openly root against the player, but they take any chance to knock him and aren't objective. As for supporting Zack with those numbers, the loud fans on this site will never be happy. If he had those stats they would talk about the win. If he wins, they talk about it wasn't his win; when we loose and there is one bad pass, he is the worst. Last week Zack sucked, but got the win, and yet the boo-birds were out; people called for White to start, etc.
  14. LOL - 0 problems? white had 4 INTs (should have been more); he also got knocked out of a game; JJ throw a game losing INT in the Red Zone; Flacco tried the dink and dunk game and the team came up short, but yeah, no problems.
  15. what? where is the dwarf caller? can't be good at that height
  16. Well Mac Jones has a better OL and supporting cast and Defense. So, Zack played better with less - the game difference is likely the D. And Zack always having to play from behind, etc. BTW, didn't the Titans have their top running back when we played them too?
  17. LOL - that is what i meant. We already have 8 losses - in 2020 we could only hope for 8-8 - isn't this year great !!!
  18. Really hoping for a high draft slot to hopefully trade down. Either way, I can root for the Jets to win and the Seahawks to loose and then I get the best of both worlds.
  19. well, this is a new GM and a new CS - so if you assume it is just bad karma, nothing we do will work and the team will always suck. So, either this team has a chance and let's root for Zack or they don't and it just doesn't matter. I think the biggest problem Zack has is that he is surrounded with equally young and inexperienced players playing on new schemes with new coaches. It is so hard to know for sure. The biggest problem that some of the fans have is that they are either too optimistic from preseason, too critical (like all other QBs never have bad games or throws), or are too jaded. It sucks, because this is supposed to be fun and entertaining. Here is hoping for the best
  20. Jets seem to struggle on D against what was, at one point, our identity - smash mouth football. We don't seem to hold up to it. If they start off running the ball directly at us hard, or they are fast enough to get outside, it is going to be a long day. As usual, I will be rooting for the win, but at 3-8 the wins aren't as important. I find it impossible to believe we will be 9-7 and not sure 9-7 gets you into the playoffs. So, a win is great, but a loss helps us in the long run with draft order. But I root hard for them every week. Fortunately, I can root for Seattle to loose - another loss or so and they will flip picks with us
  21. To be fair, Rosen was picked at 10 I think. Let's look at Mayfield - he had his ups and downs and into his fifth year, Cleveland still doesn't know what to do with him. I hope that isn't us, but ... Look at Maholmes - The guy was great and so was his team - this year he is struggling - this concept that a fan - who doesn't know as much as coaches and doesn't see everything that is happening in practice - knows Zack is a bust or that Zack will be great is ridiculous. It is even harder to determine when the team has almost half of their players being a rookie or 2nd year, brand new schemes and new coaching staffs. We won't know anything for sure until middle/end of next year at the earliest. Most likely not until the following year. If it was easy, every team would have a top 10 QB (which of course is impossible). The real question is why are Jets fans rooting against him? I understand not being convinced or not liking the GM/HC, but to actively root against the kid - that is mind blowing...
  22. While Zack may turn out to be a bust, he is currently the future of the Jets. If he is healthy he plays. If Zack isn't playing it is because he is either injured or they want to win. If they are selecting a QB with the best chance to win, Flacco will start. Mike is considered to be a back up; he has been around a couple of years, been on 2 teams, and he was drafted in the 5th round; he has been deemed by the 'pundits' to be a backup at best. He apparently doesn't have enough upside. While the 'pundits' can be wrong - it is rare. Unless proven otherwise, we will remain a back-up; so all things being equal and everyone being healthy Zack will start unless he can't or they choose to win - if they are trying to win Flacco starts. Sorry.
  23. LOL - No way JD dumps Zack next year (or he will be dumped); so, it doesn't matter. That being said, it normally takes a good QB 3 years to turn the corner (but they should be showing progress prior to then); However, QBs often have a sophamore slump (can't happen now as I don't think he can get worse). I am hoping that Zack starts to settle back down and shows progress before year end, but I wouldn't count on it... meanwhile the running game and some of the offensive weapons are showing promise...
