  1. Thank you John McKay. Sent from my SM-G975U using JetNation.com mobile app
  2. I don't care who won the game. I also don't think how any particular game ends tied in regulation should have any bearing when considering the "fairness" of the OT rules. Yes, we all know that life isn't fair. That doesn't mean that reasonable things shouldn't done to try to make it as fair as possible. In my mind the most fair thing to do is give both teams the most equal opportunity to score. That's why I think the best way to conduct overtime is just to give both teams the ball once at their own 25-yard line and whoever has the most points after those possessions is the winner. I will call it the "One Possession" rule. This is the closest scenario to the actual goal of an NFL game - which is to judge Team A's offense vs. Team B's defense in conjunction with Team B's offense vs. Team A's defense. In the scenario that just unfolded all we found out was that the KC offense was better than the Buffalo defense. The KC defense got off scott free. Some people say that the defense in football can score and that is what makes it different than the extra innings in baseball analogy. However, that argument neglects the fact in either scenario (the current rules or the proposed rule) if the defense scores, then that team wins the game. Also, just like in a "regular" game, if your defense can stop the other team's offense and then your team scores a FG or TD you win the game. Realistically, the "One Possession" rule is like a mini-game, but without kick-off's or punts. The "One Possession" rule would be the best solution and it can actually limit the amount of plays vs. a full, 10-15 minute overtime period (if that's what the NFL and the player association is worried about). It works for college ball - I don't know why it wouldn't work just as well in the NFL.
  3. Seems to me that the College OT is the fairest. Since it looks like the NFL wants do away with kickoffs as much as possible anyway - Just give each team's offense the ball at a specific yard line (I would choose each teams own 25 yard line) and go until one team has more points than the other after any even number of total possessions. This scenario IMHO is the most reasonable methodology if the goal is to limit any controversy. It also has the added benefit of perhaps less overall plays than a full overtime period. You could limit this to playoff games and still allow regular season ties at the end of regulation. This might actually force more strategy decisions at the end of regular season games.

  4. When was the last playoff game where the Jets beat both teams in the regular season ? Sent from my SM-G975U using JetNation.com mobile app

  8. While the Jets obviously haven't been a model franchise with many woeful seasons since 1960, if you look at "recent" history it's actually it's been only the last 10 years that the Jets that the Jets have been really bad. Prior to that, over the 15 previous seasons the Jets averaged over 8.5 wins/years, made the playoffs 7 times, outscored their opponents in 12 of those years, and appeared in 3 three AFC championshios,. Although they didn't win it all and were rarely a top 3/4 team, from Parcells through mid Ryan - that's still a pretty good stretch. Sent from my SM-G975U using JetNation.com mobile app

  10. What the f*ck was he thinking on that play.
  11. This is getting to unbelievable proportions. I know that the Covid 19 situation has strained most teams, but this has gotten ridiculous. I have never seen anything like the last two years with this team.
  12. I believe when Losmeister is saying: "He's a below avg QB. Fitz is, by all metrics, an above avg QB. The MYTH is that he SUCKS as often as he is decent, when the exact opposite is true." Losmeister actually means the following: "Darnold a below avg QB. Fitz is, by all metrics, an above avg QB. The MYTH is that Fitz SUCKS as often as he is decent, when the exact opposite is true." That's the only logical thing that makes sense. It's true that Fitzpatrick is a fan favorite and everyone understands why. However, he's played in the NFL for about 15 years and hasn't made the playoffs once. If results are the only thing that matter (irrespective of the surrounding team) how do you reconcile that?
  13. Jetsfan80, since when has Darnold played under these ideal circumstances that you speak of? Take a look at McCown's play for the Jet's in 2018 (after having an unexpectedly decent 2017). McCown's stats indicate that the Jets QB job was a bad work environment was less than optimal. To say that Darnold has ever been put in a decent position is stretching the truth - IMHO
  14. Leave is to Losmeister (and Connor Hughes - for that matter) to complain about a pass that Darnold actually completes. There's nothing like a still photograph to provide a complete "picture" of a play. Again, I am not saying the Darnold is "the answer", but to think that showing a photograph of a successful play is supposed to prove a derogatory point is somewhat lacking - IMHO. I'm surprised you didn't show a still of Darnold's posture on the TD through to Berrios at the end of the game.
  15. I usually agree with your take. However, for the plays that were on Baldy's clip, I thought Fant (RT) did his job except for one play. I thought GVR (RG) was beat or didn't react as well as he should on one or two other plays. I am not commenting on the rest of the game, just the ones on Baldy's video.
