  1. No pass. Hired Gase. Kept Mac. And the "uniform redesign" pitch he greenlit was one PowerPoint slide: But the silver lining here is that Chrissy was so incompetent, Joe D was able to institute a Magna Carta type check on ownership power within this franchise.
  2. I opened this thread and was genuinely worried that Big Ticket didn't take care of himself this offseason. Then I used the interwebz. Guy seems fine. Who knows about the OTA's, I kinda check out at this time of the year until camp starts, but I mean, that tweet was from 11 days ago and it's Becky and Vera Tuck... so Mekhi did show up for something? And he doesn't appear to be a fat mess? Superbowl bound!?
  3. He's missed 31.5 games in a row. I think you can hate the signing, respect the player and question how he effective he'll be next season.
  4. Obviously this was a terrible signing, and nothing is going to change that. But what's best for Mosley and the Jets going forward is a return to form. He doesn't have to be a pro bowler, he doesn't have to be great, he just has to stay on the field, be reliable and be a leader.
  5. This. We spent most of our resources and focus on offense. Our second priority seems to have been defensive line. We weren't going to fix it all this year, but considering where we were to where we are now - I think most of us are pretty excited. Let the padawans play at corner and maybe we get lucky and find a Jedi.
  6. Geno Atkins missed half the season last year, I believe Lawson had injury struggles the years before that. But you're right about Dunlap. Call me optimistic but my expectations for our trio this year is higher than the Cinci trio for the past few years.
  7. Definitely the best unit on the team. Rankins played on a great defensive line for several years now, but I don't think Q or Lawson has ever played in a unit like this. If you look at their ages, time in the league, situation, new head coach... there could be more than one career-year on that defensive line this season.
  8. I'm about it, but I don't think Julio wants to come here. He wants to play for a SB contender. Interested to see if Green Bay gets involved as a way to settle with Rodgers. But it sounds like a LA Rams move if they have any draft picks left.
  9. Very easy to get excited about this dude. That AJ Brown video where he was crying tears of joy for Moore was a bit "that's my quarterback-ish" but I can't help but see that, and articles like this, as genuinely encouraging.
  10. Agree with a lot of this. Cryptp seems far too speculative and dependent on 'timing the market'. I'm also interested in the technology and the idea, vaguely of course, but I don't like short-term, speculative investments. There are some diversified crypto funds out there that are heavily weighted towards bitcoin, but hedge with 25% or so spread out amongst other cryptos. I like that idea. I haven't bought into any yet, but I think that's a prudent strategy. As for inflation, we had what, no inflation in 2020? And now we have 4% in 2021? Sounds like a lot, but then you consider
  11. People are pledging allegiance to the general manager of an historically terrible sports franchise. Other people are dying to know what number Wilson will take so they can rush out to buy one of the ugliest pieces of clothing ever created to sport said doordasher's name on their back. "Strange day out here @ Windswept Fields"
  12. Do you remember years ago, in a different place than this - but very similar, there were a group of Jets fans that thought Matt Jones out of Arkansas was going to take over the league? Pepperidge Farms remembers
  13. Maybe, or maybe the Chiefs and the Jets were both just desperate to improve their offensive lines, willing to pay a premium. What reassures me is the two firsts, two seconds and cap space we'll have next year. Even if this move was expensive, we can afford it.
  14. But we had to give up two third rounders for AVT and we wouldn't have had to give up any picks for Thuney. And of course, a proven commodity is more valuable than a projected return.
  15. We overpaid (when weighing positional value with the trade-up cost) to immediately improve the protection for our rookie quarterback. I think that's a fair assessment. I think there are reasonable critiques and defenses of that move. Think about it this way: If we had signed Thuney, we were willing to overpay a guard to protect our quarterback.
  16. I don't agree that it's a distraction to bring in a vet QB. But, I think there's a fair argument to the 'we don't need a vet qb'. We've got Knapp and a much larger coaching staff than the previous regime. If we had someone that could start the season, I'd prefer that, but I don't see anyone of that quality available.
  17. Don't do it! If you must have another grown man's name on your back, at least go for those T Shirt versions -they're a 1/3 of the price and then when they cut the player after he assaults a dozen massage therapists it can be the designated 'landscaping, gutter cleaning, gym, garage cleaning, painting' shirt.
  18. Didn't Bradshaw play pre free agency and when the draft was over ten rounds? This league is different now. Teams can't stockpile talent like it's 1970. Green Bay burned resources trading up for a future quarterback, one that was a reach at that spot btw, all while being in a legit SB contention window. Rodgers might be cranky and a bit of a prick, but he's right on this one.
  19. The article has a title that presents a question and then the article itself interviews a guy that says "He's awesome, it won't be a problem". I see you Brian Costello. Covering all them bases eh?
  20. Maybe. Or maybe it's the type of thing that would've been said regardless of who we drafted? "The Jets coaches discussed their preference for Mac Jones over Trevor Lawrence in this system" What was never going to be written after last Thursday? "The Jets felt like they screwed themselves by winning two meaningless game and settled for Doordashin' Timberlake" All that said. I'm happy we got Wilson.
