  1. Not exactly. Orlovsky broke down his film and Mayfield made fewer plays that were based on the play called, and more plays where he freelanced. He said Darnold made plays within the plays that were called because he understood where the ball should go on specific plays. Mayfield did not look to the correct receivers based on the plays he ran and often went through his progressions in the wrong order based on pre-snap configurations. He said Darnold was further along in understanding the play and where he should be looking based on pre-snap reads and the routes his receivers are running. Basically, Darnold was understanding the play and processing the info more quickly. He said Mayfield is clearly not ready yet since the regular season will be different and his reads need to be correct.

    Jets Training Camp - 8/8

    Worst possible scenario. You learn on the field during the season, not on the sideline. There just isn't time with the way practices are structured today. As has been pointed out, highly drafted rookie QBs are much more successful playing right away than sitting and it's not even close if you look at history. Thinking guys will develop by getting barely any reps are kidding themselves. It rarely happens. It will set the team back if Darnold doesn't start because then he'll have to come in and take his lumps. If he has a full year under his belt we can hit next year running. If not, it will push back the progress of the entire team, especially since he's the most talented QB on the roster.
  3. What I agree with and we've seen lots of data on this, is that sitting a rookie QB, when the rookie is picked highly in the first round, does not help his progress at all. If he has command of the offense he should start. Wasting away on the bench will not make him better - only playing will. Only the starting QB gets enough reps to get better once the season starts. Giving the job to McCown makes no sense unless Sam can't handle it.

    Jets will have new uniforms next year.

    bright green and light blue are majorly different - I would think trying to sell bright green merchandising would be much tougher. It would need to be an accent color if they want to use it. They need to be aware of which colors look dated and which colors do not. Kelly green - that bright green - screams 60s and 70s. Kids would not want the main color of the uniform to look old and dated. They would never use this color as the main color if they are using a professional design firm.

    I can't disagree more with this order [in joewilly's post]. This guy has zero design taste or skill in identifying what works and what doesn't. Shockingly bad attempt and putting the teams in order based on overall design.

    Sorry, but I design identities/logos for a living and this logo is anything but modern. It's old in it's design and execution. It's roots are in the 60's.
  8. I'm trying to find the article, but history backs up the fact that if you have a talented rookie taken in the first round he needs to start week 1. Anyone have this article floating around? It says much more often than not that you need to learn by playing and it backs up this idea with real facts from QBs selected in the first round over many years. Because of the way the practices are structured these days, it's even more important to learn while playing and getting most of the reps as a starter in practice. You don't develop by watching - it just doesn't happen. If he shows he can handle the playbook, he should play ASAP or we're just delaying him getting to a high level.

    Jets Offensive Line

    The reason why this line could be very good is that they are changing to a different blocking scheme. Noone knows yet whether they will be meh or very good. It's all up to how well they pick up the scheme and how suited they are. You can't judge this line by how they played in a very different style of blocking.

    Every NFL Logo Ranked: Jets 31st

    I think I've mentioned this in the past, but I have owned a graphic design studio for 20 years now and have designed over a thousand logos if all of my sketches are counted. The Jets logo is simply outdated and looks that way against most of the other logos in the NFL. Nostalgia aside, the logo says nothing about either a Jet, or football. I've seen law firm logos that are more exciting. It's a sports team for crying out loud. The layered type is a design no no. I'm a very conceptual designer, and if the concept is nonexistent it's a poor job. It's long overdue for a change and it should be done by an experienced designer that is a huge fan...like me. The logo should be visually appealing and not too complex so it can be applied to uni's, merchandising, etc.
  11. same old jet fan, smh You have no idea how much better the team can be this year. You think the offensive line is going to be worse in a new zone blocking scheme or better? Does this personnel fit this scheme or do you not know? Crowell? A much improved secondary and receiving core? Just last year we beat Jacksonville and had New Orleans and Atlanta on the ropes.

    Darnold is better off as a Jet than Giant.

    It's not too much to ask for Darnold to have a better career than Eli, IMO. Here are Eli's team records from when he was drafted: 04: 6-10 05: 11-5 06: 8-8 07: 10-6 (Super Bowl) 08: 12-4 09: 8-8 10: 10-6 11: 9-7 (Super Bowl) 12: 9-7 13: 7-9 14: 6-10 15: 6-10 16: 11-5 17: 3-13 That's 7 winning seasons out of 14 and only 3 divisional titles. The had great defenses on the Super Bowl teams and that allowed them to get hot and contend, even though they barely made the playoffs the years they won it all.
  13. Jets already had a private workout with him and had been watching him all season - they were in attendance. To say they waited until the last minute is just plain false. They brought him to their facility at the end, but he was on the Jets radar for a long time.
  14. Yes, a mentor in practice and in the meeting room. Off the field distractions as well. He is invaluable in those aspects of being a professional QB. Do you really think McCown is the best example for Darnold on the field? I certainly don't.
  15. Geez, you must not have read the article. You just can't get enough reps in practice. Most of the young, successful QBs in the last several years started right away and made huge strides in just their second year. The new practice rules just don't allow players enough opportunity to get the work they need. By not playing him - provided he picks up the offense quickly enough, you just delay his development. I think he should be playing at least by October. And let's be real - how much will he learn watching McCown in a game. Off the field, practice, prep, yes - he'll learn a lot. But how much in a game?
