  1. I'm laughing a little at how CBS Sports and Bryan DeArdo are treating the spleen check like a new injury... And also what a click batey title "grim update on the quarterbacks health"... Come on guys... https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/sam-darnold-and-adam-gase-offer-grim-update-on-the-quarterbacks-health-ahead-of-eagles-game/ While Darnold didn't discuss the specifics of his new health situation, he did mention his spleen during a recent interview with SportsNet New York.
  2. https://www.tampabay.com/news/florida/2019/09/30/this-veteran-died-without-a-family-youre-invited-to-his-funeral/ The story of a Naples veteran who died with no close family went viral Sunday. You’re invited to celebrate his life on Tuesday. According to WFLA, Edward Pearson died last month at 80. He left no immediate survivors, so his funeral has been opened to the public. The political community rallied around the man’s story in a series of tweets. Former Democratic Congresswoman Gwen Graham urged the residents of Sarasota, where the funeral is being held, to show up for Pearson. “We can be his family,” Graham tweeted. Mr. Edward K. Pearson served our country. He has no family to attend his funeral. We can be his family. You are invited to his funeral at the SARASOTA NATIONAL CEMETERY, 9810 State Road 72, this Tuesday, October 1 at 12:30 p.m. Please go, if you can.https://t.co/QMnWC1P5ks — Gwen Graham (@GwenGraham) September 29, 2019 CNN political anchor Jake Tapper echoed Graham’s call Sunday, and his tweet quickly went viral. As of Sunday evening, it had been retweeted some 3,100 times ― including by Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz. SARASOTA, FLORIDA!!! Veteran Edward K. Pearson just passed away at age 80. He has NO immediate family to come to his funeral, so the public is invited to attend. Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 12:30 p.m. at the Sarasota National Cemetery, 9810 State Road 72 https://t.co/naEaWQEjgN — Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) September 29, 2019 The service for Pearson will take place Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. at the Sarasota National Cemetery, WFLA reported. That cemetery’s address is 9810 State Rd 72, Sarasota, FL 34241. I hope he gets a wonderful turn out.
  3. I mean... Let's be real. There's no need to rush him back... The Jets aren't a playoff team anyway. I don't think this one game was going to make or break the season... Give him another week and let him get to 100%. Same with C.J.
  4. It's also just an issue that there are SO many bad and mediocre/below average teams. You have maybe a top 1-3 teams... Then like 25 interchangeable teams in the middle that are just average or below average at best, then then the bottom 3,4,5. I mean we could discuss the actual numbers and who those teams are and switch a few categories... But the point is there's a huge group of teams in the middle with glaring enough weaknesses that they'll never beat one of the top teams... They still might finish the season with 7.8.9 wins because they each play all those other middling teams, but they're not good enough to take on a favorite. It's funny, there IS parity in the NFL... But it's all in the middle. There are a lot of 'meh' teams, but not a lot of contenders.
  5. Sam, Quinnen, Mosley, Herndon... Those are a pretty solid 4 to (hopefully) get back. Not sure if it's enough to win but it definitely changes the dynamic of the team. 14 feels like a lot of points... Doesn't help the offensive line and CB issues directly... But they'll help.
  6. True true... Still if Sam does play I might take that bet... 14 is still a lot. I mean if nothing else that's close to back-door cover territory. Also when I say "take that bet", I generally mean I'll be betting like $10, hah. So it's not like I'm taking a giant leap of confidence into them or anything. Just at least feels somewhat plausible that they can keep it within 2 TDs.
  7. I think most of us are past wondering why it has issues... We've seen that for a couple years now. At this point I think we're all trying to figure out what can be done to fix or improve it. Both right now and in the future... For the future it -seems- like Joe D. sees the OL as a high priority. His comments and his roster moves so far seem to at least point to that, so that leaves me a little optimistic... For the present, we just have to hope these guys get better at working together. The talent level isn't super high. So the ceiling isn't either... but a good percentage of their struggles have been misplays, missed blocks, miscommunications... In theory those can be worked out at least a LITTLE bit. But who knows?
  8. I'd be tempted to take that line bet... That's a lot of points. They must not think Sam is playing. I think you'll see that drop to maybe 7.5 or 8.5 if Sam plays.
  9. https://www.nj.com/jets/2019/09/whats-wrong-with-jets-pitiful-offensive-line-who-is-to-blame-can-it-be-fixed-former-nfl-players-analysts-weigh-in.html Can't argue with a single thing from this article... Uggh... I can't do anything but hope the bye week and more time to work together as a unit will have helped these guys. “The prior administration, they severely neglected the offensive line and you just can’t do that in today’s NFL," Woody said. “Any successful team ... usually they have good offensive lines. The Jets, unfortunately, have done a very poor job of drafting offensive linemen ... and developing guys. Now you’re paying the piper.” “Are these guys talking?" Woody, now with ESPN, said. "What is the coaching like? How are these guys being coached during the week? Because these things that you’re seeing on Sunday, there’s nothing crazy about what these teams are doing, but they’re beating them up front, which is alarming.” For his part, offensive line coach Frank Pollack did shoulder some of the blame when addressing reporters Tuesday." They don't have to be a top, elite unit! They just need to be average... Even below average would somehow be an improvement.
  10. Give a team a prime Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Michael Irvin, and Barry Sanders. Throw in Shannon Sharpe at TE. Give them a coaching staff of Lombardi, Landry, and Noll... They would all struggle behind this offensive line. I see the number of threads blaming Gase, or the playcalling, or the QBs, or the WRs, or the defense, or a lack of skill player talent... And of course they're not completely off the hook. Those are issues and we all know it... But their failures are symptoms of the bigger problem; and that's the OL. You can't get your best players involved and you can't come up with an interesting offensive play set if your QB only has a half second to throw, and your RB can't run it inside. You can't succeed when your opponent only needs to rush 3 to apply pressure or to blow up running plays. I'm actually scared for Darnold to come back and to try and play behind this line... I don't know what the solution is at this point. The line looks over-matched and/or lost on every play. Maybe they'll find some chemistry during the bye? Maybe JD finds a willing trade partner to help boost the line? I don't know, but I don't expect this team to succeed at all, even at full strength, if that line doesn't get decidedly better, fast.
  11. You have to worry about the spleen for months, depending on the case. Even without the extreme fatigue, chills, high fever... Your spleen can still be really enlarged. Even if he didn't/doesn't have the extreme outward symptoms, you have to be safe with the spleen...
  12. I mean look, there are issues at depth, at the playmaker positions, at CB... If people want to throw Gase under the bus I get that too. But for me it all filters down to the OL. I think a lot of the things that are killing the Jets (and us as fans) stem from a horrendous line. We have no time to let a play develop, we have QBs who are running scared on every play, there are no holes opening for Bell, opponents are rushing 3 or 4 and getting pressure, allowing them to sit 7 or 8 guys in coverage... Robby said it in his post game. "It all starts upfront"... And he's right. Everything trickles down from there. I don't think the Jets offense is this bad... With a half-way decent line I think we'd be in most of these games. But the talent just isn't there. They look both over-matched and lost out there. It's a bad combination.
  13. Now they have to win the World Series... I'm really interested to see how Boone uses his pitchers. How long can Sevy go? Does CC start or even come out of the BP? Does Tanaka see the lineup a 3rd time? Can Chad Green go more than 2 innings? And while that's going on, the hitters will be facing some top tier SPs and need to keep hitting. Should be a great post season.
  14. All this game did was help to reinforce the amount of mediocrity in the NFL. You've got lets say 2-4 top teams... 2-4 bottom teams, then just a mess in the middle like these two.
  15. I don't know if I could pull the trigger on a bet for them to win... But I don't think betting on them to cover is a crazy bet at all... It's insanely high and unlike the Dolphins I think the Jets are going to actually try. But like you said, for a tank of gas why not? Stranger things have happened in the NFL.
