  1. Wow. That's absolutely not what I was implying - who told you having a communication strategy was about not telling the truth? I absolutely think that this stuff is true and I think they have skillfully dealt with the 'he's a spoiled kid nephew of Jet Blue founder' and the 'he wasn't a captain must not be that into football' nonsense that came out earlier. That's the point. I saw Mark struggle with managing the fall out of eating a snack during a game.
  2. Sorry, corrected that above - help with handling NY media (or avoiding the wrong stuff).
  3. So its on the nose. I'm fine with that. While media trained and always (to the point it annoyed some) saying the "right things" - I never felt Sam or Mark were actively trying to shape their media narratives. Team Wilson seems to be really into it and maybe that will help (vs. my earlier worries the kid from Utah gets eaten alive by NY media).
  4. Great read. Clearly, his handlers have honed in on messaging on work ethic and passion for the game. Smart strategy.
  5. I'm cool trading up to get Jenkins if he is JD's guy. That said, I just got the attached on pff and world be delighted if it fell this way!
  6. I keep seeing us projected to draft him at 23 in rd1. I have a strong pref/hope that we draft OL at 23, but CB is definitely a position of need. I keep hearing that Salah's scheme is much less reliant on CB performance with less man defending. How do you guys see Newsome as a fit and for value at this spot?
  7. Why would anyone in media consider Penny a flop? He took the Jets to a few playoff runs and then alter got one with Miami, I think. He was a solid QB that dealt with injuries but Jets certainly didn't inhibit him. Sanchez played in two division championship games on loaded teams. Things fell off the rails a few years in with poor protection and no one to throw to, but again, don't think he has much to say bad about us. I think Mark sympathized with Darnold because of how the end of his experience went with Jets as the Gase era mirrored a lot there, Darnold needed a fresh start and
  8. Thought the question was fine and the show really hyped Zach. The only weird thing to me was that Herbstreit did a lot of film breakdown with Lawrence and none with Wilson. They talked about Wilson being a film junkie but then didn't show it.
  9. Either way, he was in the QB room with Mahomes and was setting example for Mahomes in his first training camp, etc.
  10. I'd been hoping he would be our old head back up for Zach or Fields like he was for Mahomes. Dissappointed we didnt pull that off or he wasn't up for it. Def need some veteran guidance in that QB room... https://www.instagram.com/tv/CN2j9LohMi4/?igshid=1fmq2ob75ds8k
  11. Don't understand this argument on the jump balls. He threw three pics (and one of those was a throw away hail mary play at the end of a half). Even controlling for caliber of opposition, with the amount the kid threw the ball downfield he must have developed excellent chemistry with his receivers and throw to a good spot in order for his guys to come down with it that frequently (given that his completion percentage was also exceptional). This argument comes to the same as the Field's doesn't get past first read one to me - you can't fault people for doing something that works for
  12. I don't know why we haven't signed him already. Draft a killer CB with 34 and bring in Sherman to tutor him, Bless and Hall on what great looks like in this system.
  13. Full marks on your subject being very transparent.
  14. Goes both ways. I remember seeing Sam celebrated a few years ago for being 'unflappable' and 'even keeled' and then crucified this year for 'just not having the killer instinct.' I'm now seeing Wilson criticized for being a 'baker mayfield' style personality with will either thrive or fall apart under NY media scrutiny... And I guess Lawrence now gets his ambition questioned - when all Ive ever heard of is, 'doesn't feel pressure, different kind of kid, etc.' celebrating this. Basically, people see what they want.
  15. This is exactly spot on. One of the key benefits of moving on from Sam was supposed to be a fresh start. Let's really offer that to whoever we hand these keys to.
  16. Completely agree. The Milliner pick, while certainly a bust, was a totally sensible pick of the top ranked guy at our position of biggest need that season. He was also picked 9th. For me, Gholston by a healthy margin.
  17. Extraordinary. I was watching the March Sumo tournament final and they showed one of the stable runners who used to be a yokozuna - guy was unrecognizable. It's incredible how your body can transform based on what you choose to put in it and how you work out.
  18. Certainly inferior competition will help a player look better - but amongst the two main guys we are looking at I think you can argue that Fields benefited just as much (as has been beaten to death by how frequently his first read was open). We can't know how Wilson would have adjusted his decision calculus against better coverage, but his ball placement was solid (esp downfield) and he seems a smart kid. After watching a couple of his games last night a habit that worried me more and that I haven't seen here is that he likes to play cat and mouse with the D linemen to create a throwing
  19. We are in a great position to elect from amongst several great prospects. I truly hope that our fans will rally around whoever the pick is at 2. You can find fault with any one's film if you keep looking and pre-draft entrenchment on players the past few years have just led to weekly passive aggressive threads about whether players are busts or the best ever... Whether it's Fields or Wilson (or I guess Lawrence), they all have stuff they are good at and stuff they can get better at and who we surround them with and how we coach them will probably be just as important in the long run
  20. Have to admit. The jetsiest thing would have been this stuff coming out after we did a deal. Bullet dodged. He might get away with that in Houston (or kc or tb where they seem to roll with everything) ... But in ny....
  21. Agreed. That's how we ended up with Shaq Evans and Jalen Saunders in a deep wr draft a few years back by waiting too late... (Well that and just awful scouting and coaching)
