  1. Not a very team player approach, but consider that Robbie left NYJ in part to get away from Darnold - now his is not only there and playing terribly, but he is costing his team a 2nd this year - Robbie sitting on the side line thinking how much better he would be doing if Mike White or JJ was throwing him the ball
  2. That is a very mean thing to say to me... I would guess that the Bills are going to cream their opposing team next week ...
  3. Yep - Gase I am sorry that you were stupid enough to keep playing vets with younger running backs and the GREAT MIKE WHITE on the bench
  4. Bills tanking and the Patriots are rising - the second half of this season is going to suck
  5. He wanted to be in the booth all along. The accident this summer and Zack needing the guidance forced his hand and he was on the field. So, the Jets hire a QB coach and he gets to go up in the both and their offense plays well and it is a demotion? Cant make this up.
  6. While he played admirably, it isn't like JJ is lighting it up. That being said, they can protect him, but if they elevate him again, they will have to keep him on the rooster or put him through waivers. I think we finally have an offense that can move the football even without out a franchise QB; Mike did extremely well. JJ did admirably without the reps. Maybe we aren't so lost, offensively, as we thought. Maybe the system was worth waiting for. Hopefully this means that next year we should be able to be consistently good. We will have to invest, draft or FA, in the defensive side of the ball, however.
  7. maybe the Jets backs are better, because for the longest time they had to and had a lot of practice. I find it hard to believe that Carter is any good as he was drafted by JD and is just too short to play in the NFL
  8. D couldn't stop the run from the first snap. I think that the defense still has some holes; if the OL is strong enough or has a good running back, they truly struggle. Some weeks, it seems the Defense plays over their heads almost on pure effort; but they can only sustain it every other week
  9. can't remember; promising WRs from Jets past is just a blur; it is probably the one. Hopefully, Mims can make the necessary growth.
  10. 1. second week in a row that the offense had played well: touchdown in 1st Quarter good play calling 400+ yards and TDs It appears that the offense has arrived. Instead of giving all of the credit to White and Johnson (they deserve much), let's rejoice in the fact that the Jets finally appear to be building an offense that any quality QB can score points with. In the past we couldn't score points, or the offense didn't match the QB skills, or the QB needed to be a top 5 QB. This offense seems to have a good direction (I hope this isn't just an aberration). 2. We have a reality check about how good (or not) our D is. We are having a serious problem with stoping strong running games especially with teams with good OL. Not sure if it OLBs, speed, what, but needs to be addressed - hopefully we can follow LaFleur's lead and change something. 3. We are a young, and inexperienced team, coming off a big win on a short week with travel. Travel woes, and up and down are signal of young, inexperienced teams - positive? this can be fixed with experience and team work - we were not going anywhere this year anyway - time to learn how to win on the road after a big win. Consistency - also, the D did stop a goal line stand, and played well last week. 4. This team never gave up. If not for the tipped pass at the end of the game, we were an onside kick and a drive away from coming back with our #3 QB at the helm - odds really long, but this team regrouped and pushed hard and never gave up - this isn't the same ass kicking we got from the Pats. 5. JD built a team with a strong enough QB depth to compete in a game we really should have lost. And, many of the draft picks, especially this year, are coming alone nicely.
  11. Was Keyshawn the one I was thinking about? Can't remember.
  12. can we merge the Mims should be cut thread with this it isn't Mims fault thread? Maybe Mims ins't good. Or, maybe he is having a sophomore slump? Maybe he is thinking too much on the new scheme and trying to hard and he has to just play. There are a lot of reasons why him may be struggling - maybe the 3 QBs deliver the ball differently. Either way, if him getting benched and then having to prove himself is the reason he is struggling, he isn't going to make it on this team or any other. Half this board thinks Saleh is too soft - now some are arguing he is too hard/mean?
  13. yes, he had some bad drops; one it was obvious that he was trying to run before catching it. Had he caught it, he would have picked up another 10 yards easy. Not calling him great by any means, but even vet receivers can go through a rut. Look at it this way: with his size, hands, speed and reach, had he been a good route runner with good hands he would have been a 1st round pick - maybe even top 15. He fell the 2nd round for a reason. He dropped within the second round for a reason. JD liked the potential. Some receivers take 2-3 years to acclimate into the NFL. Not saying he will eventually get it. He may never get it. I remember once a Jets receiver was a body catcher and they taught him and practiced him to catching with his hands - i wish i could remember who it was, but I believe he ended up have a good career. That is the problem with the board, a great game and people were like why do we need Zack when we have Mike; then a player has a bad game, and they are trash. Look at all the hype about Herdon - and then he did nothing; this may be Mims. Or, he may make the leap from potential to good/great. Especially with the weird season last year, new scheme and often sophomore slump, I think dumping him now would be a mistake. By the end of next year we should know one way or another. Patience - we aren't going anywhere this year anyway (with or without Mims).
  14. sounds like we should have accepted that 4th or 5th we were offered
  15. There are two things at play here. It used to be if you brought a player up, you had to release him, let him clear wavers before putting him on the practice squad. Once you release him, a team could sign him to their practice squad. Because of the Covid changes, there is a special game time elevation (each player can have it twice) where you bring them up to play and when the game is over they revert to the PS without clearing waivers. Any team could sign any player from another teams practice squad as long as the put them on the active roster for i think 3 weeks. So, nobody was truly safe on the PS. Now every team can protect certain players from being grabbed and added to 53 man roster.
  16. You know what is also kind of funny? The same is true for the Patriots - the only have 1 win against a winning team.
  17. yep - we should look right past this game - already in the bank
  18. Can't just put -em out - likely to get attacked with down votes...
  19. Hey - There is no place for logic and reason on this site. Watch it ....
  20. I don't get the hate/drama. We lost a coach this offseason and the offense was struggling - LaPuke is up in the box now, and Beck, who already has a relationship with Zack is going to help out on the field. A lot of teams have QB coaches and consultants. Of course the great Gase didn't need one (more of a reason to like the move). There is no cap for coaches; if adding Beck makes the team or Zack better - smart move. Would people prefer that they didn't try something else? Leave LaPuke on the sideline. Should the coaches have said, 'Yep we lost a coach this offseason - bad luck all the way around' and just pouted?
  21. I was going to make a Da Vinci code (or similar) comment, not sure anyone would get it as it has been a while since that book came out....
  22. I think he played this past weekend... not sure how he did.
  23. Well, now he isn't so you are good; in fact you were clearly a visionary
