  1. I actually remember those days. Sent from my SM-G965U using JetNation.com mobile app
  2. Oh so now only Tannehill's last two years prior to Gase arriving (2014/2015) count - throw 2012 and 2013 out the window. If that is the case, then only Tannehill's yards per attempt (7.5 ypc vs. 7.0 ypa), yards per catch (11.4 ypc vs. 10.9 ypc), completion percentage (.66% vs. .65%), and QB rating (93.17 vs. 90.78) went up in 2016/2018 vs. 2014/2015. Tannehill did have a better TD:INT ratio (a more team oriented stat) in 2014/2015 vs. 2016/2018 though even though the winning percentage (an even more team oriented stat) for Tannehill was better under Gase. Hate Gase all you want. Nothing I write will change that. There were many things that I didn't like about Gase this past year. However, just be totally factual. Not everything that happens proves the narrative that you want to assert. It isn't hard to check complete passing stats. The facts are that Ryan Tannehill didn't regress under Gase. Statistically he was a very similar QB in 2016/2018 as he was the prior two years: fairly significant jump in YPA and YPC, slightly better completion percentage, slightly worse TD:INT ratio.

  3. Not a great fan of Gase, but if Tannehill was better before Gase then why did Tannehill's yards per attempt, yards per completion, completion percentage, TD:INT ratio, and QB rating (93.1 vs. 85.2) all improve under "the Fraud"? Sent from my SM-G965U using JetNation.com mobile app
  4. Now if you could just convince players (especially the marginal ones) to intentionally play worse so that their stock lowers and puts the Jets in a better position to draft their own replacements. Kind of sounds stupid if you think about it. Sent from my SM-G965U using JetNation.com mobile app
  5. I agree. From the time from when Parcells took over through the the 8-5 record in 2011 the Jets (although they never won a championship)were one of the better teams in the league. Making three conference championship games over that period is definitely better than average. Of course, the last 7 seasons have definitely been wanting. However, I agree that the constant "woe is me" attitude that some display is too much. Complain all you want ‐ it's a free country. However, if you want to play the "poor Jet fan me" card all the time you might as well switch allegiances. The days where you have to root for the team near where you live are long gone.

  6. That last two plays shown in that video (the slant to Kerse and fake screen to Cannon followed by the pass to Anderson) are really well designed routes. Too bad we didn't see more of that type of design in 2018. Sent from my SM-G965U using JetNation.com mobile app
  7. Well I think the chart isn't really convoluted at all. If you believe in QB rating (and I assume it was NFL QB rating and not ESPN's QBR) it shows that after week 9 Goff's stat's took a nosedive. It also shows that Darnold (after he sat for 3 games) had a good four game stretch to end the season. The week nine "marker" was one game before Cooper Krupp was lost for the season. Maybe his loss was a key to Goff not playing all that well at the end of the year? Whether this trend continues remains to be seen. However, nico was asked to give some explanation why he thought that Darnold was better and he provided the chart (which I have seen elsewhere before). You may agree or disagree with his opinion, but the fact is that Darnold finished up the season much better than Goff - at least if you accept the QB rating as fact. IMHO the chart seems like a reasonable thing to post. In all honesty in the limited games I have seen Goff in action (all in the second half of this year), I have not been that impressed. Quite frankly, I don't think he has Darnold's arm strength. Also his playoff run this year was very pedestrian and his SB performance was pretty bad. This is a Jet board, so I don't think it's earth shattering that people might add a little "wishful thinking" into their analysis in addition to what is pretty undeniably a good ending to Darnold's (first) season. Especially when you consider the coaching and personnel of the Jets vs. The Rams and what many NYJ fans have seen of Goff (in his third season) over the last three weeks I don't think that the cautiously optimistic position that they would rather have Darnold than Goff - is wholly unreasonable.
