    Josh Rosen the One Who Got Away?????

    The collective crush this board has with Josh Rosen will always be an enigma to me. He's a statue in an era that favors mobility at the QB spot. He's arrogant and polarizing. Has a spotty injury history that includes concussions. And he never won dick in college. Yet ppl still gush over him like he's a lock for canton. Meanwhile most on this board dogged D Watson at every turn, dismissing his legitimate accomplishments in college (that rosen never sniffed), and look how that turned out. Bottom line is we got one of the 2 best QBs to come out in the last 3 qb classes. Huge for the jets. Hopefully macc won't eff it up and will start investing in top shelf OL and skill players this offseason.

    Should the Jets draft another QB in 2019?

    Wow, so we're all good in the developmental QB dept? No need to have any young QBs on the roster in case Darnold gets hurt or fails to pan out? Just sign some more castoff-journeymen to be the back up and we're all set. Brilliant.
  3. The answer is yes. My guess is Bridgewater is traded before next draft and McCown retires/moves on. While Darnold looks to be the real deal, you don't put all your eggs into one basket. And you need depth. I think a 3rd or 4th rd QB next year makes a lot of sense. Any early favorites, Jetnation?
  4. McClown...oh I see what you did there. You combined his actual name with clown. Ha!. So clever and original. No seriously, bravo to you.

    OTA QB Mentoring Tidbit

    McCown has taken a beating from posters here. Some even insisting on referring to him as McClown, which is ridiculous and juvenile. But all the guy has done has been asset to the franchise both on and off the field. He's earned our respect and we're lucky to have him.

    Can we talk receivers?

    Lol. The mere fact that I received 5 "butt fumbles" on what is a reasonable take to anyone who follows football not wearing green goggles speaks to the level of homerism on this board. Never said we sucked. Never said we have a bunch of useless bums. Just said it's time to PRIORITIZE an upgrade after drafting an elite prospect at QB. Pretty darn fair observation, ppl.

    Can we talk receivers?

    It really can't be said much better than this.

    Can we talk receivers?

    Correct. Trading up for Sam Darnold and then rolling with jags and journeymen wr's (which is what we have currently, no matter how green some of you want to color your Jets goggles) is a crime. Get this dude some weapons. Same can be said for the OL. Needs a huge upgrade next year. I would like to see these two areas be the offseason priority, in a refreshing change from our annual focus on d-line and defensive backfield.
  9. I think enunwa is a bit overrated by Jets nation because he was the only decent wr 2 yrs ago. And I can't expect a heck of a lot after the injury he went through. Good player but far from great. Richie Anderson is a ticking time bomb, and more of a one-trick pony than he is a complete receiver. Ok, but not great. Neither Hansen or Stewart showed much in their rookie seasons. I like Kearse as a role player. Bottom line is not much with this group. Definitely nothing to be excited about. Now that we've gone all in on Darnold, I would think the next step is making a major commitment to upgrade this group next off-season.
  10. Weird. No one has been more critical of Macc than myself. Now all of the sudden I'm "stroking him" because I'm objectively pointing out that he's upgrading the character and leadership on this team? It doesn't change my criticisms, for which there many, and it doesn't change his track record which sucks, but I like that we're getting rid of the high priced dead weight. And I like that we're replacing them with guys who are humble and want to work hard. And couple that with finally grabbing a franchise QB, things are looking up. Sorry if this positivity upsets you so much.
  11. Lol, really thought this would be a thread we could all agree on. While I understand Macc has made mistakes, the bigger picture here is he is successfully changing the culture, a poor one that extends back from well before he got here. One that we haven't seen since the Parcells/Mangini days where guys police themselves and the leaders of the team are dudes you can count on.
  12. Jets have been full of knuckleheads for the last decade +. Some of the lowlights: *Santonio Holmes distraction *Brandon Marshall dustraction *Fitzmagic holding out and missing valuable off-season. *Players holding a coup for their love of fitz. Decker, Marshall, etc *Brett Favre dick pics *Muhammed Wilkerson lazy, late, and a team cancer. *Mevis 2.0. (As if the first stint of this guy didn't tell us where his priorities lined) *Sheldon...where do I even begin with this knucklehead. Anyways, you get the point. I could go on for days. Macc has systematically cleaned house. In place are guys like Jamal Adams and Sam Darnold, who are fantastic leaders, not just good football players. Team culture is shifting and I think we can all feel that happening in a positive direction. What made me compelled to post this is a quote I read from Nathan Shepherd, a guy who was working min wage jobs to pay for college that eventually led him here. The quote, "'I think that whatever the opportunity the Jets have for me is going to be more than enough for me,'' Shepherd said. ''If they need help in a certain area, then I would certainly feel honored that they would come and look to me for that.'' While I didn't initially like the pick, how can you not love this attitude? And Fats is just as solid and humble. Compare these two attitudes to the two we just sent packing in Mo and Sheldon. We're a better team for it. So while Macc has made his share of blunders (cough Hack), I have to give credit where it's due here. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/shepherd-fatukasi-could-big-impact-jets-d-line-223340696--nfl.html
  13. Says the president of the Rosen fan club? The kid is going to flame out in Ryan Leaf proportions.

  15. He never won jack squat in college. Never elevated his team. Never could stay healthy. His own coach had weird, tepid praise for him that begged the listener to read btw the lines. Herbstreit, who is cfb's most plugged in talking head, felt Darnold and Mayfield would've got more out of UCLA as the QB there, but didn't feel Rosen could've matched the success of his peers if he was on USC/OU. Browns VP just said regarding Rosen, "something about him bothered me." With all these giant red flags he was by far the board's darling leading up to draft. Posters acted like Macc would be an idiot to take Mayfield over Rosen. I just don't get it. Maybe follow the leader?
