  1. I think it's ridiculous and way too premature to label Sam Darnold as a bust. This kid has talent, and he can play the position. He'd look like a much different QB with even an average or slightly above average O-line. If there's a clear cut bust on this team, it's the HC and the O-line coach. I would understand if they were running the ball successfully, or if there was more often than not, time for Sam to get through his progressions but that simply isn't the case. Successful teams are built from the line back on both sides of the ball, and with the Jets this isn't the case. On the offensive side, whether it's the players or the scheme, they can't open holes or pass protect. On the defensive side, they haven't done a good job of pressuring the QB, or stopping the run. CB's are getting torched (granted that the CB position doesn't possess much talent) but perhaps if we were generating pressure consistently it would help on the back end. I've been a Jets fan since 1966 ...Yes, 1966! ...I've been down this road way too many times to count, but talk of trading Darnold is just crazy...Think Steve Young from his Tampa Bay days, and the difference when he went to SF...Or Dallas, with that O-line which made DeMarcus Murray, and Zeke Elliot rushing champs..In all the years I've followed this game, I've seen tons of QB's come and go, and from what I see of Sam's natural ability he's legit....he just needs help, both from the guys in front of him, and some quality coaching, of which he has neither.
  2. At the very least, they must replace the O-line coach. Most of the O-line players are NFL caliber talent, so it's either the scheme or the coaches. Actually it all falls on the coaches if the scheme doesn't fit with what the players strengths are. The truly good coaches adopt their schemes to their players strengths rather than try to fit them into their own schemes.
  3. There's a lot of talk on these boards about trading Leo and Adams. Why get rid of Leo when we have no idea of how good Q. Williams will be? Plus, it's more than a stat line that gives the full measure of how well a player is doing. Leo does a lot of good things that don't appear in stats. As for Adams, who takes his spot if he's gone? Too often, we as fans are reacting out of emotion instead of logic. The trade I would make would be Trumaine Johnson, but that can't happen until next offseason due to the cap hit. We have a new coach and GM dealing with a banged up roster and poor draftees left over from the previous regime. I feel we need to not over react only 2 games in although the next couple of weeks (games) don't look too promising. I'd suggest we give these guys (HC and GM) some time to put their stamp on this team and as hard as it is for us Jets fans, be a little patient....for now
  4. The more I think about it, the more I agree with you. Looking at the top O-lines, most of those players were drafted by them. Not a lot of piecing together through trade or free agency. Indy (big improvement last year), Dallas, Pittsburgh, even NE does it for the most part...another thing they have in common regarding the O-line...most have DEPTH!!!
  5. Ramsey was a first round pick still under his rookie deal. He's one of the best CB's in the league. He's worth a 1st round pick. The only problem is that we'd have to sign him up for a long term deal. If that can be done then he's worth it, otherwise no way I give up a 1st round pick for a 1 year rental... Trent Williams would come for less than a 1st round pick.
