  1. I remember this one like yesterday. In the last week of the season the Cowboys win a meaningless (they were already locked into a playoff seed) game against the Giants by converting a 4th down TD then a 2 point conversion. In doing so they somehow shifted the strength of schedule tiebreaker in favor of the 49ers. At the time it didn't seems quite so bad because it looked like Arizona would take Nick Bosa as the clear #1 pick especially given they had taken a QB in the first round the year before. Lo and behold they change administrations, draft another QB, and Bosa ends up in SF. Made me want to puke then and nothing much over the last few years has changed anything, I still want to puke every time I watch that guy (Bosa if I need to elaborate) destroying other team's game plans while our guy is being game managed to keep up whatever little motor he has to offer .
  2. I'd love to share your take, Unfortunately based on his appearance the only way I can is if we both agree that round is a great shape....
  3. A few thoughts on this during slow season: -I admire the honesty. Lets bring a hot 25 year old into our house and ask our wives to mentor her in all the things we like. See how that goes. -It would have taken little to sound a bit more gracious: "it's my job to make sure he never sees the field. Having said that I will always help my teammates any way I can" would be simple enough. -Of all the wives and GFs of athletes I have seen his is still the hottest ever. That and $38 million per year should fund a little "pinch me i'm so blessed" graciousness. -His interception at the end of the Bengal game was the second worst I've seen besides Favre's pick in the NFC championship game when he already had minny within field goal range and could have run it even closer instead of making that throw.
  4. I totally agree. Felt that way with Tyreek Hill as well. We need to hit those picks. Take Drake London at 10 and pay him a rookie contract or if you prefer one of the kids from Ohio State. Use the money elsewhere and maybe hit on one of the 2nds we were willing to trade as well. I don't understand the thinking of trading high value assets and then having to pay a massive contract unless we are talking QB.
  6. As a PSL guy and long time season ticket holder I can honestly say I have no idea why I continue to buy my tickets. Maybe its FOMO: the day I give them up is the day they start playing big games people actually want to attend (as opposed to asking me why I am wasting a perfectly fine day trekking to our dump of a stadium to watch losing football). Maybe its Stockholm Syndrome. Maybe its just a bad habit like nose picking. Anyway I will pay the new price because I'm like one of those dumb but very loyal dogs. Maybe this year will be the one where we have our first home playoff game since 2002 which is truly mind boggling. I was at that one and it was a glorious day 41-0 over Peyton Manning and the Colts. Anyway thanks for listening I feel a little better now.
  7. Here's what I think we would have all liked to hear: "Listen I can stand here and talk about process, growth, and experience. I know firsthand it is true and while it is hard to see on the field I see it in my head and I know it's close. Having said that I am sure people are still sick of hearing me and coach keep spewing the same party line. I know I have not played great and I need to show improvement on the field or I am going to start to lose the confidence of my team. I've told my receivers it's gonna get better and I'm saying the same things to the fans. Until then I'm gonna keep a bit quiet and let my play do the talking."
  8. Watching Herbert is both impressive and depressing. Can't teach 6' 6" and he's got a gun but its his accuracy and vision that are most impressive. The fact they took 4 players over him just goes to show how tough it must be to assess the position. I am equally sad to admit how happy it made me to see Mahomes bounce a wide open screen pass for a TD on a key fourth down. First time we can make a legitimate comparison between him and Zach.
  9. Never heard of a defensive scheme predicated on good play of your quarterback. So by that logic does that mean the success of our offense is predicated on special teams providing them with good field position?
  10. At least our receivers are safe because they can't catch anything...
  11. I looked into this. They are doing in person practices but all meetings are remote. Better but probably not enough to make the slightest difference anyhow.
  12. I would not be that keen on on another O Lineman in the first but I will say this: if our QB is going to continue to look so damn skittish in the pocket than as GM I would do everything within my power to build a fortress in front of him because if he fails we're looking at a never ending rebuild at the end of which I will no longer be employed.
  13. So here we are again. Discussing the merits of a mock draft with 4 weeks left in the season when we don't know what our draft position will even be yet. Next comes the invariable discussions as to whether we are bad/stupid fans if we root for the team to win. What an absolute train wreck we are. I watched the Rams/Cards game last night and boy it looked like fun. Packed house screaming from play 1, stars making plays, beautiful pass completions all over the field. It's literally looked like an entirely different sport. Sweet baby Jesus please let us have games like that one days soon. We deserve it!
  14. I wish Costello would ask him one more question: Coach how is it possible that the team so frequently can force third and longs but can virtually never stop it? I swear I have been watching football 45+ years and in all that time I can never recall a team as bad on third and longs in my life. And its not even close. Maybe over the course of a season a decent team will give up a third and fifteen or twenty once or twice. We have done it like 10-15 times already in 9 games. It is truly pathetic.
  15. Was a nice throw on the one he got hurt. Maybe the injury explains why he couldn't be bothered to stretch his hands out let alone dive. Saw him on One Jets Drive and was very likable guy but outside of the Titan game his season has been a pretty big disappointment. Hope he has a big bounce back year in 22.
  16. Didn't enter my mind at the time but bringing in an unvaccinated veteran qb (mid-season no less) to stabilize and/or create some leadership was pretty foolish. The guy can barely even take part in meetings and now this. Really hard to understand the logic...
  17. So HUGE I heard the networks asked the league to flex it. To 7 am...
  18. Since there is no one in the draft we are all pining for my thoughts are the Jets will lose. Only win these games when when we also lose in the process. My other thought is I really hope Wilson plays. It's enough already...
  19. CJ Mosely is a small inside LB who got even smaller in the off season for some reason. Supposedly to play quick but I haven't seen it. He needs to go as soon as the damage from his bloated contract is close to off the books. Until then we can just refer to him as CJ Bonilla in honor of Bobby and his never ending contract. $17 million per year holy smokes. The other LB we signed, Davis, is a total zero. Whoever said it earlier is right we need new linebackers we get absolutely steamrolled by a decent running game and covering for that is in large part that makes our defense so incredibly vulnerable.
  20. The narrative that the Dolphins run a complex defense that is really tough for a young QB to handle is interesting to hear. Just went online to confirm that their record is still actually 3-7. They give up 25.2 points per game, good for 24th in the league. Not exactly the 85 Bears but still too scary for us. Pathetic...
  21. I heard Phil Jackson might be available if he's not still under contract with the Knicks
  22. Observations from first live game in two years: -was good to be back. tailgating in the lot is always a highlight. -stadium still is awful and in the worst location ever so that remains unchanged -at least half the fans wearing bills blue so that is embarrassing -option to leave early to avoid traffic has been eliminated by our awfulness. i swear there was more traffic in the middle of the third than there would have been had we stayed until the end. Its a little discussed thing but it also seems the Jets start each season with 4 of 6 games on the road. Not a huge deal but for a young team home is a place to get off to a good start and gather some belief. As fans early season is also better weather. Coming to see a losing team 3 times in december and 1 time in january is pretty ridiculous. Not surprisingly the Patriots had 5 of their first 7 games at home. Maybe just maybe our lame ass owner will raise this issue just once with the league while also mentioning why its okay to screw the Jets on virtually every close call and rushing the passer penalty that occurs throughout the season.
  23. The better question is why are we returning any kicks at all. The league clearly does not want the returns and makes sure to make it a losing proposition. Doesn't take an analytical genius to see the average start position when you take one out ends up around the 15 yard line taking into account penalties but not taking into account risk of fumble and/or injury. Just plain stupid decision making.
  24. Am I missing something? This guy had a pretty strong rookie season and I was excited to see him in year 2. I think the switch to zone blocking is not his strength and the one game I saw he looked bad. He got seriously injured that same game through no fault of his own and now he is a bust? When I saw it I thought it was season ending so guess it looks like it might be after all. I know a season feels long but is really not when you count the weeks and having surgery week 2 is not easy to recover and return from.
  25. I was at a Jet thing sitting next to Bob Wischusen right after the Jets signed Mo Wilkinson to his big deal. Told me at the time it was a huge mistake, said rushing the passer is the toughest thing to do on the field and requires maximum effort and a big heart. He was right then and the same holds true many years later. This defense has absolutely no heart and its led by the line which was supposed to be our strength. Aside from the Titans game they have had zero impact. They race in with ears pinned back time and time again even after its painfully obvious they were allowed in as set up for a screen. They get zero pressure on the quarterback without blitzing. Thought we had hired a fiery and smart defensive leader but that was clearly a false bill of sale. With regard to Quinnen, no doubt he has a lot of talent but he has to be wondering what he got himself into here because his coaching at Alabama had to have been ight years better than anything he has seen in the pros.
