  1. Chad is dumber than I thought.


    its easily Mac as the biggest offseason acquisition...the guy who brought in Bowles, Fitz, Marshall, Revis, Skrine, Carpenter, Gilchrist, and drafted Williams...


    there's one right answer to biggest offseason acquisition for the Jets, and chad is wrong.  No Mac, likely no Fitz...and likely none of the other guys I mentioned, or not all of them.

  2. I want to see Bowles get back to his elaborate blitzes, including Skrine and Pryor blitzing like madmen off the edge.  This is what made the defense so unpredictable and scary in the early weeks: being able to blitz very fast guys while using man or matchup-zone concepts in the back end with Revis, Cro, and Gilchrist.  The development of Mauldin will also help with speed off the edge, while Sheldon and Mo crash the inside on 3rd downs.

    anand williams...revis, williams, cro, and gilchrist behind skriNE and Pryor mixing it up...

  3. where he ranks as far as number 10, or number 13 but the plain fact of the matter is he is a good QB and if he had a better supporting cast and better coaches around him he might even BE a guy who could help a team win some playoff games. Look at his numbers the past 3 seasons;

    2013; 24 TDs   17 INTs   60.4 Comp.%  3913 YDs

    2014; 27 TDs  12 INTS   66.4 Comp %  4045 YDs

    2015;  20TDs  11 INTs    62.1 Comp %  2993 YDs

    You and I both know that there isn't any one of us who WOULDN'T have taken a quarterback with those stats over the past 3 seasons

    have you watched the kid in December?  Pass.  start hot finish in a steaming pile.  Plus he's bottom 3 in the league every year in completed passes over 5 yards.  Captain check down...no thank you.  He's a loser, IMO.  

  4. The guy we needed is that  David Johnson kid who plays for Arizona . The best thing he did coming into the league is catch the ball out of the backfield . He's not a bad RB either, and has shown a willingness to block. With Ivory as our primary back and Powell , that kid would have been perfect behind those 2 while he developed his running style against pro defenders.

    The guy we need to take a look at for this position in the draft currently plays receiver and his name is Braxton Miller the former OSU QB.


    As far as being dead wrong, my pick was Coples. I wanted the Jets to draft him and I wanted him to be a Rush LBer. Kid is strong, but has no real love for football. His heart is not in the game.

    I was hoping for a late flyer on Cobb Rb Minn late in the draft or Duke Johnson in the middle rds (RB Miami).  Glad we got Mauldin though...not so much on Harrison OG over Cobb though.  I think Cobb will eventually be the #1 back for the titans.  

  5. The dline is easily the area that I was most wrong and remain disappointed with.  I definitely thought when Richardson came back we'd see one of the greatest dlines ever...like when the Vikings had the Williams boys in the middle, and then you added a young John Randle to it in the draft in Williams...definitely wrong there.  Watt by himself was a better dline than our 3 combined unfortunately.


    I thought our secondary would be elite when factoring in the pressure from the dline...qbs would have to get the ball out early, making coverage easier and with these dbs, they'd feast on qbs.  No way I thought Bortles and Carr would look like Rodgers and Kurt warner.

    I thought Amaro would be a Chris Cooley type for us this year.

    I definitely thought Mo's deal would be done by week 1 to avoid the huge cap hit of the franchise tag.

    I definitely thought Cro would give up some plays, that's what he does even at his best, but I also thought he'd be making far more plays than he has.

    On the plus side, Fitzpatrick, Decker, ivory, and Marshall far exceeded my expectations, not that they were low for them, but they have out performed what we gave up to get them (in Decker's case, $7.5 mill ain't bad for what he's producing and adding to the offense).

  6. LOL Saying a fan base which you are a part of sucks yet thinking you are somehow removed from that statement is hilarious. 

    I'm not sure if you realize Just how much you complain about things here. You complaining about the fan base is still complaining. 

    Lower your dukes for a second while explain the intention of this thread to you. It was a mere comparison of extremes to establish a dialog. A method utilized in many instances in an attempt to remove the potential for misunderstanding. Seems it didn't work here because you have your fist cocked at all times ready to further your rhetoric by attacking the idea which haven't even grasped. 

    The best thread ever? Surely not, but come on man. I actually find it interesting to ponder the way in which our team and staff respond to certain situations. No need to call people names and attack me, or anyone else, for it. 

    If it doesn't interest you, that's cool. Then just move on. Besides CrazyCarl already busted my balls for it before you anyway. 

    people who talk out of both sides of their mouth are annoying in any context of life, the fact we have so many fans who enjoy SOJ feelings is especially annoying.

    I don't read every post on every thread so I give less than 2 sh1ts who else said your point was crap.  Glad my post only confirmed what was already said.


    we lose and bowles fiery speeches don't work and he should be on the hot seat.  We win and he isn't fiery enough in the locker room after a win.  Good grief.

  7. I'd be pretty pissed if the jets acted like they accomplished something in beating the phins.


    so is the point of this thread that the jets are supposed to act like they lost their virginity after every win vs acting like they've been there before?    And if they did act like they won the super bowl, the point of this thread wouldn't be the other way, right?  "Jets over excited about beating the fins."


    have I ever said the Jets fanbase sucks sometimes?

  8. AFJF was right again :)  Jets should have kicked the tires, Davis looked good and doubt he had much preparation, say what you want about Pettine but he stuck to his values and kept Johnny 8ball on the bench, don't think that saves his job but good for him

    Sad way to end the game for the Browns,  first overall pick and draft day on the way (just like the movie?)

    hard to get excited about 1 game.  We've seen that movie with Kevin Kolb, AJ Feeley, etc where they look good in spurts but once the game film is out they fall apart...that's what happened to him with the Rams.  I can't imagine with McCown and Manziel the Ravens spent much time game planning for Davis.  I'm not sold with a week of preperation he looks as good as last night and looks more like the guy the rams cut....

  9. Oh my god. Now we're talking about talking about Rex? Clear sign of de-evolution, as man transforms back into ape. 

    right?  Though I do wonder why we still have fans stroking Rex as his team stands 5-6 with the red hot Texans coming to town.  They haven't won a game after winning their super bowl versus us in classic Rex fashion; and despite being 3 point favorites this week, I'm sure no one would be surprised if they're eliminated from the play-off race this week with another rex like collapse from shooting his wad too early in the season with a meaningless, at this point, game against us...but I guess some like that sort of thing and miss it...

  10. You're right. And you can say the same of Jerry Rice. As I recall Wesley Walker dropped a lot his first year, too. And it seems like the Jets coaching staff thinks highly of Smith and his talent. But what I meant was you don't go with a guy in clutch situations with the game on the line if he's an unproven receiver who has not been playing well. You break him in slowly and if you want to go deep to him earlier in the game. If it's a win or loss situation you go with your known quantity. And they did that yesterday with Devin. If he does come through this we have a good weapon. But Marshall was the man yesterday. 

    which is why the video I posted is so relevant...the 9ers win that play-off game because they did exactly the opposite of what you state above.  

    You play the best players and you go to the open guy.  He will learn as he goes.  Why was Seattle even in the Super Bowl last year?  The guy who kept getting open all game was a guy who didn't catch a pass all season and went Undrafted.  130 yards later, he looks like Calvin Johnson vs the Pats secondary.  You throw to the guy that's open.


    if we put Kerley in place of smith, it doesn't matter, because Kerley doesn't get open running those routes and that entire play was set up by a scenario of plays earlier in the game that sets up that route for a player with devin's talent.


    i don't understand how fans don't know what they're watching.  Football is a game of chess.  Each play in a game plan is intracetly selected to look and interact with other plays in the playbook.  

    The jets aren't using Kerley for a reason, he doesn't give them the advantages they're looking for when attacking defenses within the structure of their offense.  It's that simple.  His game is entirely with 15 yards of the line of scrimmage...he can't get deeper than that in the 2.x seconds a QB has to make a play....


    if smith gives our offense what it needs, and he obviously does, then you don't enable his inconsistencies by playing him inconsistently.

    you suck it up and go through the growing pains like every young wr does...or TO never makes that catch to win at GB in the playoffs, because you're playing some tool like Kerley instead who never gets the separation needed to make that play...

  11. He played great today.  All over the field.  Looked like he did back in college.  Hope he keeps it up! 

    I think this is it. He's now just playing, likely like college, and thinking less.  I think his brain was on overload last year.

    for all the Devin smith bashers, it's the same for him.  As gaily point out, he only played 1 wR position in college and didn't need to know them all.  This is the first time in smiths career he needs to know the responsibility of all 3 wR positions.  Once he stops swimming in his own head, we should see the player we drafted, assuming he can master the mental gymnastics.
