    Report: No Playoff Mandate for Jets’ Bowles

    We're going to be starting a rookie QB, of course there isn't a mandate to make the playoffs. There should be a mandate that the team, particularly the young defensive players, improve. Too much has been invested in this defense for it not to be in the upper half of the league -- really it should be in the top ten.

    Darnold will wear Jersey # 14

    Man, for a kid from SoCal kind surprising to see Darnold rocking a farmers tan like that.
  3. We traded up to three to make sure we got one of our top three QBs, realistically Mayfield who was 2nd on our board with Rosen as the fallback option. Because crazy things happen we lucked into the consensus top prospect -- yes, we're fortunate the Giants are incompetent and picked a RB second overall. Obviously that was lucky. Had Mayfield gone 1 and Darnold gone 2 it would have been a bad trade as we now know Rosen would have lasted until 6. But 1) if Darnold and Mayfield were our top two QBs it's clear we wouldn't have gotten either of them at 6, so we rolled the dice and 2) if we had sat at 6 Sam Darnold would be a Buffalo Bill. Seriously, the underrated benefit of trading up is that the Bills likely drafted a huge bust instead of the guy we're all thrilled with right now... So it's not just "Darnold at 3 vs Rosen at 6 and the extra picks" it's "Darnold at 3 with Josh Allen throwing swing passes into the dirt in Buffalo vs. Rosen at 6, the extra picks, and the Bills beating us to the punch taking the QB who's going to dominate the AFC East for the next 15 years in the post-Brady era." Really, if we're going to criticize Mac for anything it shouldn't be trade it should be the fact that plan A was selling the farm for Cousins. I would have been fine with that at the time but THANK GOD we didn't get him.
  4. Weird list. Why on earth would any of us care if Josh McCown improves? God willing he won't take a single snap for us this year. The guys we want to see improvement from are our high draft picks. We want Jamal Adams to take a second year leap the same way Landon Collins did. We want to see Leonard Williams look more like the beast he was in 2016 instead of last years regression. We want to see Darron Lee do something other that tweet about new uniforms. Ardarius Stewart and Chad Hansen need to show something. Those five need to step up. I could give two craps about half the players referenced in the article -- most of them won't even be on the team in 2019.
  5. When you don't have a QB coach isn't the "assistant QB coach" essentially the QB coach? Kind of weird.

    8 Young Jets Who Could Make Big Leap in 2018

    I think Adams will take a big leap forward just like Landon Collins did in his second year. I think he'll be better in coverage, force a few turnovers and continue to fly around making plays.

    Story on Jets pursuit of Darnold

    Chan Gailey felt like he could make good conversation about the Masters, which was deemed important. (That's a true story.)
  8. The Browns don't have a choice guys. Dorsey openly said he didn't want to be on Hard Knocks -- under the current rules the NFL can force franchises to be on it if they don't have a new head coach, haven't made the playoffs in the last two seasons or haven't been on the show in the last ten years. Should be a fun season though. I'm looking forward to it. EDIT: Correction on timeframe

    Story on Jets pursuit of Darnold

    Hard not to read this article without a huge grin on your face. Maybe, just maybe, it's our time.

    Can the Jets win the division this year?

    The Pats are basically a lock for 12 wins, they've won 12 or more for 8 straight years. I can't imagine any scenario where we win more games than they do. I don't think a wild card is out of the question though.

    Chad is mentoring Baker

    Chad Pennington was a weak armed but efficient QB who put up good stats but could never win the big game. After multiple shoulder injuries he was no longer capable of playing in the NFL and flamed out. He "wasted" talented Jets teams. Mark Sanchez was a bust who sucked and was never a good QB in the NFL. He also "wasted" talented Jets teams. Both guys were ultimately failures as first round franchise QBs and neither should be revered or celebrated by Jets fans. Both guys were also seemingly good guys who don't deserve bile or scorn. They just didn't work out.
  12. I picked 9-7. I think we're going to surprise people and generate some positive momentum. People crap on the team but I really don't think we were far away from being 8-8 last year -- lost some very close games in the 4th quarter.
  13. I feel like it's a very important distinction that none of the 5 witnesses the prosecution were ready to call witnessed the alleged crime. They were police officers who responded, doctors/nurses who did the rape kit, etc. Reading is your friend.

    It's been mentioned in this thread a few times but Collision Low Crossers is essential reading for any Jets fan.
