  1. It depends really. I think to be a center you have to be more cerebral and understand defenses and pass rush concepts, but its the easiest position to block from generally speaking, as you have 2 men on each side to help you, and the most athletic pass rushers want to rush from areas with more space. You do have to snap the ball though which isn't easy for everyone Since Fant is this good of a pass blocking LT, it should be relatively natural for Becton to switch to RT, and it naturally fits his player profile better as the Right side is the strong side for run concepts. From what i know you can switch between guards sides relatively easily. the footwork is different on each side but overall its the same movements so with practice a player can figure it out
  2. Just wondering if anyone can clarify... Is the bold part merely speculative or a part of Jamal's medical... and is he at risk for spinal stenosis or is the reporter just making all this up?
  3. Honestly a lot of it had to be the timing... Gase finished the season 6-2, was it the easy schedule or was a first year head coach implementing his system? Firing him then allows critics to say the coach never got a fair shot, also firing a coach after one year... How do you recruit a coach to come here Also the roster was atrocious reeling off Jachai Polite and Darron Lee type draft picks and Macc's awesome FA signings, again a lot harder to sell a head coach to come here at the moment. And finally JD realistically only had one head coach hire left in his tenure. So he stretched his window one more year while he tried to start his rebuild, which really starts this year. But by waiting he was able to sell a new top tier head coach candidate on his vision with the assets he acquired. I'd say Saleh was a top two head coach candidate, I don't think the Jets would have hired a top 3 candidate last year. What say you?
  4. John Jastremski left WFAN for Bill Simmons podcasts company a month ago. He drops "New York, New York" maybe 3 times a week. Totally gives you your NY sports radio feel but theres no five minute commercial break every fifteen minutes, and he takes voicemails that allow the callers to swear. Its sooo refreshing. Also Carton blows now. He's a 50+ year old man trying to act like he's Big Cat and Pfft (a under 30 barstool reporter) his college humor just totally fails because he comes off as an old man loser, trying to talk about hot moms. When Boomer was his partner at least someone on the show was a young NFL star that could have gotten a lot of poon back in his day... But now he tries it with Evan Roberts who is a bigger loser than Carton. The Carton and Roberts show is absolutely horrible, Carton is definitely tried this stunt for the attention.
  5. Offensive efficiency broooo. The real thing is the Panthers gave up too much for Sam. I don't care if he succeeds there or not. Unless he turns to an all pro those picks are gonna be heattt. Maybe a Devin Smith, a Shaq Evans, and an Oday Aboushi coming our way
  6. How can anyone still support Sam? I think a lot of people didn't watch this past season because it was soo bad and didn't see what Darnold didn't do. His highlights are a joke at this point. For example, Lou Riddick's post about the epic throw Sam made to Berrios in a live football game. If you watched the entire game though Sam missed plenty of throws, constantly locked onto the same receiver. He was doo doo the entire game and then he makes some amazing pass on a broken play. That was when it clicked for me. He is a below average QB with below average pocket presence who at times makes an amazing play only the top 5 qb''s can make. It's not enough in the NFL. Joe Flacco moved the ball better than Darnold this past year, with the same supporting cast. The numbers prove it. The Jets offense was more efficient with Flacco at QB. Also, how can you bring up WIlson's durability concerns when we have been watching Sam miss 6 games a year every year. Is that not concerning?
  7. I heard the jets actually won their first game because they didn't want any pressure to pick lawrence, and two was the perfect spot for zach
  8. I have a question about this that I couldn't find online if anyone here can help. So leaving out the Jets in this scenario, I'm asking about the salary cap rules in regards to hold outs In the case that either Watson or Rodgers sits out, and their respective team decides to play hardball... So we get to the regular season now. I get if they are sitting out, so they are not gonna get paid, However since they technically could come back at any time, the Texans and Packers cannot reallocate their salary cap right? So if Houston decides not to deal Watson and he holds out, they are technically going to have $25 million lesss than other teams on their roster? Or are they allowed to re allocate the money at some point? Thanks because this should give the players and hopefully the Jets a lot of leverage
  9. I bet in the morning, you thought this would have a chance of backfiring, but felt it was worth the reward of looking like a genius on jetnation. Well now you look like a doofus. How does that feel?
  10. Yeah I want to see it too. Praying the Rams hold on right now. If they do all we need is the Kupp play and taking the L will allow Jets fans to own him on IG. The Seahawks have a horrible offfensive line and an above average defense relying on a lot of veterans. They are going to miss those picks dearly. Jets clearly won this trade, but even if their picks don't pan out, the Seahawks didn't win either
  11. As horrible as this season was (part of it was the media narrative), the Jets were not nearly as bad as they seemed. All the injuries and organizational disfunction led to the mess that was. If Douglas gets these picks right and makes a few right FA moves, this team could be a playoff contender sooner than a lot of us think.
  12. I thought about making a thread similar to this one, but you got it. Mods, can you change the name of the thread to "Jets fans who are happy with today's win" I'll admit that I am sold on Trevor too. However, I just can't root for the Jets to be winless. I'm 28, the first year I was really old enough to understand the entire league, Pennington broke out. The last few years of Rex Ryan I guess ruins his tenure here, but you can never take his first two years away from us. Those memories were epic, nobody thought the Jets would win a playoff game either year and two AFC Championships in a row? It was amazing, though I understand that if you don't win a superbowl nobody remembers it as fondly. I get tanking, but if you really love the Jets how can you be furious if they win one game? I mean its one game! The jaguars might still win another game, or whatever maybe the Jets can get Fields or trade down and finally put some players around Donald. Did you see Bryce Hall play today? Douglas is a good general manager. Admit it. He should be able to build a winner regardless of Trevor Lawrence. I for one, am celebrating this Jets win. I don't really like drinking alone at my house so instead I'm gonna get super baked. The Jets aren't winless! It's a pride thing. Who's with me!!
  13. They definitely threw the game. Absolutely had to. I wonder if it was Douglas's call. Think about it, Greg Williams is too good a defensive coordinator for this. The play before Ruggs burns the secondary and the Jets luck out because Carr overthrows it. SO the very next play is clearly hail mary time, the Raiders need a touchdown. Greg WIlliams cannot seriously call a cover zero blitz on a hail mary, come on that makes absolutely no sense. As much as he likes to blitz every one knows that is way too risky. Some one convince me otherwise
  14. Hey mods, I wasn't sure if this topic was fit for this forum but I was wondering if there was anybody on the board who knew any good and legitimate sports gambling advice? Either bettor's opinions or analytics is fine as long as it is good information. It just seems that everyone seems to have a sports betting podcast or show but if you actually track the bets they place soo many of them are average. ESPN+ is a joke, but I use it more for information articles, and the people on the FAN are bigger idiots. John Jastrzemski has a betting sports show that I'll hear after work, but he is soo mediocre i feel like he needs to be fired due to terrible gambling. I have been betting since the NBA bubble started and did the math yesterday and I am seriously even this many months later. I'm sure I got lucky to even break even, so I am trying to find a good resource or two, but I don't want to blindly pay for a crap subscription or something you know. Thanks guys!
  15. I mean now that Mayock is GM'ing the Raiders, McShay is the best there is. Sam Darnold, QB, New York Jets Expectations are always sky high for a quarterback taken in the top five picks of a draft. And when Darnold led the Jets to a 48-17 win in his NFL debut back in 2018, just a few months after going No. 3 in the draft, it looked like New York had found its sure-fire QB of the future. But Darnold has gotten a lot of criticism for his play over 31 starts since that rookie opener. The USC product dealt with injuries over his first three seasons, even sitting out three games in 2019 with mononucleosis. And when he has been on the field and healthy, he has played behind a makeshift offensive line. Only four QBs have faced more pressure than Darnold (34.9% of dropbacks) since the beginning of 2018. And according to ESPN Stats & Information metrics, only the Giants have sustained their blocks for at least 2.5 seconds at a lower rate than the Jets' 45.6% this season. Then there are the skill positions. Jamison Crowder and Robby Anderson have been his most productive targets in the passing game over Darnold's career, but Crowder's 833 yards in 2019 is the best season for a Jets receiver since he was drafted in 2015. Crowder has missed four of eight games this year, and Anderson signed with the Panthers during the offseason. Running back Le'Veon Bell came to the Jets with a lot of hype but was cut in October after gaining just 1,363 yards from scrimmage over 17 games. So you get the point: Darnold needs help. Whether that help comes in New York or with another team is still up in the air. If the Jets land the No. 1 pick in the 2021 draft and Trevor Lawrence is available -- or even if they slide to No. 2 and Justin Fields is there -- Darnold could be on the trade market. Or perhaps the Jets trade down for more first-round picks to build more around Darnold. The team already has four of them over the next two drafts, thanks to the Jamal Adams deal. If Darnold is moved by the Jets, the other 31 teams should know he is a confident passer with great pocket presence and an ability to extend plays. He has above-average accuracy, as well. He just needs to find some help to reach his potential. The 23-year-old has a 59.7% completion percentage and 39 touchdowns to 34 interceptions over his career. And his 2020 campaign has seen an ugly 40.2 Total QBR and just three touchdowns to six picks. He has also taken 19 sacks over those six games. But again, I want to see how he performs with a better supporting cast before I close the door on his upside as an NFL starting quarterback.
  16. Yeah and the coaching staff isn’t necessarily supposed to align with upper management when it comes to tanking. But hey. If Sam can pull out 3... maybe 4 wins by the end of the season. He can save his own job. Imagine if we got the 2nd or 3rd pick!!! If he really wants to be the qb of the jets he can screw all of us over so badly. I’m not totally done with him. But I’m team Trevor. This time we get a way better qb with extra draft capital to build around him. As bad as the jets seem there has to be a decent coach who believes they can win with Trevor here. And take it from there Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  17. We have people that have overrated and underrated him but reality is he is a good WR2. On Carolina, he and DJ Moore do a Good job of playing off each other and helping each other out. On the jets Robby could be taken away with good game planning. We didn’t see him as a game breaker but if he had another solid WR2 the jets could have had a Thielen/Diggs combo Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  18. Just won $50 on the Yankees win last night and I'm gonna put it all with -110 odds on the Jets to win (my bookie has terrible odds compared to the public websites). But, I mean, come on, the Broncos are on their third string quarterback no Von Miller or Sutton. The jets should have Crowder and Becton back. And the Broncos are a traveling team on thursday night. Don't miss out on this opportunity to get an even payout for the one game the Jets really should win this year. The next 5 games are brutal. SO lets get amped for thursday! The Jets will be 1-3 and Gase will keep his job!!! Who's with me?
  19. So last year he did one of the best coaching jobs of his career and now he’s as bad as Gase? Seems like everyone wants to just blame the coaches, but this team is atrocious. No pass rush. No lockdown corners. No linebackers who can cover or blitz. No game changing safeties. do you really think Belichick would have this defense top 10? Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  20. Nobody could coach this team to be much better. There are zero above average players on offense or defense. Last year we at least had the best safety running around making plays. Gase doesn’t deserve this much of the blame Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  21. The stadium is lame. Splitting it with the giants probably has something to do with it. It doesn’t have any great architecture or designs that make you feel homey or proud of your team (either team) and the grey seats are atrocious Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  22. Not sure if anyone else read into this... but doesn’t it sound like bell is unhappy here? He’s kind of salty that Jamal recruited him to come here and then left like this. Seems like he’s giving off a oh now I’m stuck here alone vibe Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
