  1. 2022 I was thinking the same thing that it's an unfair match up in Wilson's rookie year.
  2. Who has a better year in 2022: Zach Wilson with the Jets in LaFleur's offense Or Sam Darnold with the Panthers in Joe Brady's offense *In my opinion if it's a draw then that's a win for the Jets since Wilson is younger and he saves tons of cap space.
  3. I don't care how talented a corner is, if the QB has time and a clean pocket they will play pitch and catch down the field at will. You can't stay in a receiver's hip pocket for more than a few seconds in this day and age. Not one on one. You want to make your corners look good, get a consistent pass rush, which is something the Jets haven't had in forever. This idea of "let's get a great corner and that will make this team improved" thinking is nonsense. If we spend a premium draft resource on defense it better be for a proven difference maker at sacking the QB, or at least di
  4. Huh? So you would rather us winning 19-13 slugfests, while our new and slightly built franchise QB is getting sacked 7 times? This is your idea of what constitutes good for his growth or good for our future franchise? Just because we're getting the dub? Honestly I would rather finish 5-12 if it meant Wilson staying upright and leading an offense that scores 30 per game. Get that in place and then you're rolling, and can upgrade the D in next year's FA.
  5. Even a do-it-all gadget weapon like Travis Etienne would be a huge piece to the puzzle for Zach to be successful. People forget that Etienne can be used as a weapon in the passing game both from the slot and out of the backfield. A lot of talk about Rondale Moore, but I think Etienne is an equal talent and he's proven to be more durable and has high character.
  6. This x 1000. It is truly baffling how the same posters, who have criticized Jets management all year for ignoring offense in the draft for far too long and thus failing to give our franchise QB any chance of success, are now championing drafting a CB at literally the very first opportunity to add a resource that can help Zach Wilson be successful as our new franchise QB And as you noted, CBs are hardly difference makers anymore with the way the rules are set up. If you want to be successful on defense, get to the QB, period. See the Bucs in the playoffs.
  7. It's amazing. It's like deja vu with the justifications for spending a premium draft resource on defense...again. Then, in a few years from now using their keen hindsight, it's the same posters blasting the pick saying we should have taken offense all along. Rinse, repeat, never learning anything from it.
  8. This draft class was barely out of diapers when Revis was drafted. Not sure this is the compelling point you think it is.
  9. Breaking news: our offense has been pathetic for the last half decade in a league that is driven by great offenses. Also breaking: we have ignored offense in the draft for a decade and spent all our prime resources on defense. And I'm sure you've seen where that's gotten us. Maybe just maybe we should break that trend.
  10. I kind of cringe with all of the trendy projections of us going CB with our 2nd first rd pick. Flashbacks of Dee Millner, Kyle Wilson, and the infamous double safety draft are haunting me when I read it. Are we really going to start fresh with our brand new franchise QB at #2 and then turnaround and draft defense (again) with our first round pick, which otherwise could be used to help him?? Aren't we making the same mistakes of the past, and it's probably time to break the cycle? And is anyone excited about the 4th cb off the board? How impact could that possibly be? Lastly
  11. With the free agency additions and the fact we're taking a QB at #2, I think we're out of the Pitts, Jamar Chase, Devonta Smith sweepstakes. I still want us to take a WR. This is yet another talented and deep pool and we should take advantage by drafting someone in rds 2-4. Who do you like in that 2nd or 3rd tier? I'm still very much on the Sage Surratt bandwagon but there are other interesting ones like Tammorion Terry, who's size and speed combo is a bargain later in the draft. Or maybe Rondale Moore in Rd 2 as a slot and punt returner?
  12. I would think going from 8 to 2 would cost more than just #73 and next year's 1. But otherwise I like it for the Jets.
  13. I think it's clear that most of the posters on this board valued Juju more than the GMs. Just wasn't a huge market for this guy.
  14. For what it's worth, he was my #1 target in FA for WR. Really solid player right now and potentially blossoming into a star. I think most people are underrating what Davis can be. Also a cap friendly deal. That gives us a receiving combo of Mims, Davis, Crowder, Herndon, and Berrios. Can you imagine what our passing game might look like of we add Devonta Smith or Kyle Pitts to this mix? This would be my move in the draft, fwiw. Definitely moving in the right direction.
  15. With the way that pick is shaping up next year, my max offer to the Texans for Watson would be this year's #2 overall and next year's Seattle pick (likely top 10). Honestly that is a ton of value and the Texans would be foolish to pass it up. My preference is for the Jets to keep the picks because they can be loaded with talent with the way Douglas has us positioned.
  16. Um what?? He's had 30+ sacks the last 2 seasons. How on earth is that a one game wonder. Yes, he was an UDFA out of college and it took a while for him to ramp up and earn a starting spot. But for the last two years he's been arguably the best in the NFL at his position. Geesh. Some people will argue anything.
  17. 30 and a half sacks the last two seasons, with 3 coming in this year's postseason alone. I would say he's far from a one game wonder. Honestly I don't know how much more consistently productive a linebacker can get.
  18. No offense to Tom Brady but Shaq was the biggest difference maker on the field in the super bowl. Lightening fast into the opponent's backfield. We haven't had that kind of backfield disruptor in at least a decade. I can't ever remember having a linebackers that can fly around the field like him. At 28 he's in his prime. He and Thuney would be my 1 and 1a. Honestly, I'm not overwhelmed by the FA WRs and I hope we don't overspend there.
  19. I loved him coming out of college. Most ppl said we shouldn't draft him because he was too small and gimmicky, without a real arm. Most people were wrong. Now everyone wants him and I think his price is too high. Not in our best interest for the future to give up what it would take to get him. Hell, Houston literally just proved that Watson playing at an elite level will only notch you 4 wins if the rest of the team isn't any good. And 68 million of free agency isn't changing that, at least to the extent some believe. The masses are wrong on this one. Giving up the farm for Wats
  20. I doubt we pursue Watson (mostly bc of the asking price and Douglas's love of working the draft) but that isn't what this thread is about. If we go the trade-down route, we will have teams in a high stakes bidding war for the #2 spot. No fewer than 10 teams need QBs and potentially significantly more. Philip Rivers is retiring. Who knows about Big Ben, Brady, and Brees. The Rams have a great team and desperately want to upgrade from Goff while their super bowl window is still open. Matt Ryan's age, etc, etc. With the return value that Douglas has proven he can negotiate in trade (sea
  21. I know it's human nature to live in the moment. Absolutely Fields outperformed Lawrence on the national stage and deserves the spoils. But let's keep it in perspective. There will be no debate in the Jags war room, Lawrence will be selected #1 overall and it won't be close. What impressed me the most is Ohio State's OL. They dominated that game. They made Trey Sermon look like Adrian Peterson and they allowed Justin Fields to make it look easy. If we can bolster our OL a little, on top of a great foundation with Becton, I think we can have similar success. Fields' performance m
  22. bring in legitimate competition for him? If so, would you sign a free agent vet or hedge your bet through the draft? For the 65% who want Sam gone, would you be more accepting of him remaining here in 2021 if we brought in legit competition (i.e. Minshew, Wentz, or draft pick). And would your preference be vet or draft pick for that comp?
  23. In 2016 the Eagles gave the Browns 2 first rounders, a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th to move up for Wentz. Take a package like that, Joe Douglas. This is a reasonably deep QB pool in this year's draft. There will be potential gems available AFTER the 1st round. The Jets could trade down, aquire even more draft capital (a lot of it), and still land an intriguing QB to compete with Sam Darnold. I believe, with falling out of the top slot, this is becoming a much more likely strategy. The candidates: -Sam Ehlinger, Texas -Brock Purdy, Iowa St -Jamie Newman, WF -Ian Book
  24. Harbaugh hasn't accomplished squat at Michigan despite huge talent advantages over most of his opponents due to highly rated recruiting classes (an advantage he won't get here). Furthermore his offense is somewhat outdated and not attractive to someone like Trevor Lawrence. His QBs have been mostly unsuccessful compared to their peers, despite (again) being highly rated coming out of high school. It would be like getting a lamborghini and driving it 55 on the highway.
  25. ** Also Sage's brother, Chazz, is one of the best inside linebackers in college football at North Carolina and is currently projected as a 2nd rd pick. Very genetically gifted family. It amazes me that we don't hear more about this sibling combination but you will when both are playing in the NFL.
