    Why? If Jack Nicklaus could still compete at the PGA Tour level do you think he would sit at home? Brady LOVES to compete. Obssessively. As long as he can compete on a high level he will continue to compete. That is all he needs

    a nut for football, gotta respect it

    Exactly how I feel, and I think most fans feel.  Good guy, but has looked like a bad QB.  His best year seemed to be his first year.  The question of why he regressed hasn't been answered.  Perhaps he just revealed who he really is as a QB, was figured out  once putting up some film, etc.  Or, maybe the coaching and roster condition really was 75% of the reason.  We'll see.

    This is why they're here, to make tough decisions.  I've said before that getting the HC decision right is more important than the QB in the short term.  I still believe that.  Unless Trevor drops to #2 there is no sure thing QB available.  If the Jets feel that Wilson, Fields and Darnold all have a similar risk/reward profile then it wouldn't shock me to exercise the 5th year option and maximize the value of the #2 pick in a trade down or taking Sewell, rather than using it for a very expensive (Draft-wise) lottery ticket.

    I've been a little tough on JD in the face of the wide praise he's gotten here.  I didn't like last offseason's plan at WR and the OLine rebuild was expensive to only bring it up to the Meh level.  I'm also concerned about every pick he made from Round 2-4.  BUT, I have to point to three great things he's done IMO.... His picks in Rounds 1 and 2 last year absolutely threaded the needle on Value/Need/BPA.  Becton and Mims (after a trade down) look like super solid picks.  Second, his trade of Jamal Adams was very shrewd.  He got more value than most people thought he would for a guy that would be holding our or leaving right now, and saved the Jets money.  Third, I think JD counseled Christopher Johnson well on how to handle the coaching situation.  Keeping Gase thru the end of the season, believe it or not, was a good move.  The team wasn't good, Gase was a bad coach, but he never lost the locker room and the team won 2 of its final 3 games against playoff teams.  It was the fair and appropriate thing to do, retaining Gase until Black Monday.  The fear that not firing Gase midseason would delay their ability to jump on a HC hire was completely debunked last night.  JD got his guy and seems to have a plan for this organization.

    With all that said, those three reasons are why I trust the Jets to make the right decision at QB.  Know this, if the Jets have both a GM and a new HC, neither of whom drafted Darnold, AND with Wilson, Fields and others on the board they decide to KEEP Sam Darnold then that is very, very, VERY telling.

    On that, I believe JD and Saleh are the type to go with what they believe is best and not hear outside noise. 

    JD x Saleh BABY!!

    Thomas is a DT who hasn’t lived up to his #3 pick status at all. We don’t need DTs.

    Wilson, absolutely sign me up.

    He plays both DT and EDGE, but he'd be a guy who would follow Saleh, maybe compete on our roster 🤷‍♂️

    would Sherm really come? idk he's at the point of his career where he'd probably wanna play for a contender

    Assuming this is true....

    Like all of us, I have no idea how well this will turn out but I'll say one thing.  If you wanted the Jets to have an identity, they're about to have an identity.

    "All gas, no brakes" - Robert Saleh

    Anybody who wanted Rex Ryan back without the craziness, you may have got your man!

     

    He gets me hype already, love to see raw emotion on the sideline lets goooo, GRITTY NYC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Texans’ failure to request a head coaching interview with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy right after the end of the regular season reportedly rankled quarterback Deshaun Watson and the team is now trying to go in the other direction.

    Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that they have requested an interview with Bieniemy for their opening.

    Bieniemy will not be able to interview with the team until next week at the earliest. Bieniemy was available to interview with the Jets, Jaguars, Chargers, Falcons, and Lions last week because the Chiefs were on a bye, but he won’t be able to speak with the Texans until the Chiefs are done playing.

    The Chiefs are the top seeds in the AFC and no one will be surprised if they make it back to the Super Bowl, which would make for a long wait for an interview.

    All of that assumes that the request would be met with a positive response from Bieniemy given the team’s reluctance to ask for one before Watson’s displeasure became a matter of public discussion. They were in the process of hiring General Manager Nick Caserio and that likely changed the direction of their coaching search, but they did speak to Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady without having Caserio in place.
