  1. What worries me is that I want a QB drafted at 3 but since there don’t appear to be any Irish ones, do you think Maccagnan will make the move? I’m actually thinking that he gets confused and takes Fitzpatrick..the d back.

    Draft Rumor Round Up; Mayfield Visit

    You ain’t kidding. He has a lot of the responsibility for Maccagnan/Bowles being in the jobs they are in now. Jets would have been better off asking Ferry Korn or whatever it’s called to pick their Front Office again haha Didn’t Belichick angrily retort to some reporters question about a year ago...”When was the last time Casserly been right? About anything?”

    Gil Brandt’s latest draft predictions

    EXACTLY!! Maccagnan/Bowles need production from a potential Franchise QB YESTERDAY. Maccagnans drafts have been dismal and Bowles can’t coach, a Franchise QB buys them many many more paychecks. Mayfield appears to be the most ready to produce right away, hence I close to guarantee you he’s the pick. They’ll choose him over Rosen, if Rosen is still there at 3. Rosen’s hat will definitely be part of the equation in not selecting him. Stamp Rosen’s aka Aaron Rodgers Jr., ticket to Canton right now haha.

    Is Eli Manning overrated?

    Just a little memory refresher. In both games he got a ring. 1st one Tyree catches 4th and forever on top of his head with 4 guys draped around him. The guy’s hands were so bad most of the time, he was quickly cut not long after. The ball hits the turf....NO ring #1. 2nd one, Brady hits Wes Welker between the numbers, with no Giant within 5 yards of him, should have been a 1st down that would have allowed NE to run out the clock and there would have been no final Giant drive....NO ring #2. Manning has been a very good QB in streaks, he’s not consistent throughout his career...and very very lucky to have even a single ring. For younger fans, there was close to a 20 YEAR PERIOD prior to LT being drafted in 1981, where the Giants were not better than some of the worst Jet teams to ever hit the field...close to 20 YEARS, I’ll repeat myself. So without their 2 lucky Manning rings, Giant fans would have ONLY the Phil Simms almost perfect Super Bowl to talk sh*t about....a WORSE run when those who denigrate our teams lone Super Bowl win and how long ago it was.

    What you’ve got a problem with inbreeding? Then just say it. I’ve admired all your posts....up until now.

    You’re one of those “abused spouse” type Jet fans I mentioned about the other day haha.
  7. Yup I think you’re just about right. Be wary of guys who do too much talking, not just in football, but anything in life. Not only are guys like that virtually always a**holes, but results virtually NEVER come close to what the mouth said. Most of the time the mouth was telling flat out lies anyway. Hated this pick....at 6. You take 10 of this guy combined they don’t equal 1 Troy Palumalu, and Palumalu is the ONLY kind of Safety that should EVER be drafted as high as 6.

    If you’ve seen some hi-lites of Mahomes, it goes way beyond “strong-armed”. The guy can run right and peg a ball 80 yards throwing across his body to the left, right on the money. How he’ll perform when they have more and more tape on him is yet to be determined. What I recently saw on tape and the accompanying analysis on Josh Allen was very disconcerting. He has incredible physical tools like Mahomes but when the guy “steps up in class” just a little and faced higher competition he disappears. He supposedly has major problems recognizing the most sophomoric defensive adjustments and how to call protections and where he should prioritize his reads on where to go with the ball. The analyst then said, “if you see him having this much of a problem what’s he going to do when Dick Lebeau is scheming against him?”. Allen’s ceiling is as some say “one of the all time greats”, but the big question right at this second is, when will he be ready? I highly doubt this year, and maybe not even next year. And in my thinking Maccagnan/Bowles DO NOT HAVE THE TIME for any projects, the QB is drafted this year, shows he has strong potential at some point in the 2nd half of the season, if not, they are BOTH OUT. They know that. That’s why I think the pick is Mayfield, he appears most ready to show something THIS year. Mahomes totally destroyed his opponents in college, as did Carson Wentz, both from non Div I Schools, just like Allen. But Allen didn’t destroy anyone. I realize his team left a lot to be desired talent wise, but man the guy really appears to be a lottery ticket at this point, much more so than any of the others. I can see Rosen bailing out for good also, but Mayfield has had the same number of concussions also...2. Rosen’s mechanics are perfect and he throws the prettiest ball of all of them. Has a cannon too. I saw him put it 80+ yards in the air on Twitter. And Mayfield, surprisingly for his size, has a very powerful arm (60 mph at the Combine, only one faster was Allen at 62). None of these guys are a sure thing but I think there is a much higher confidence level in drafting any of them then lots of QBs that have come out in recent years. Yeah can’t wait till the Draft gets here. So much speculation up until the actual pick, when virtually no one knows anything at this point...including myself haha.

    That pick had to be Bowles in Maccagnan’s ear. Trying to do what worked great in AZ yet failed to understand that without all the All Pros that swarmed around in AZs defense, a guy of Lee’s physical stature is going to have many problems in NY that would have been covered up in AZ....but that’s on Maccagnan too, for signing off. Again, the Oline was neglected for a total luxury pick that isnt really working out.

    F**kin infuriating, isn’t it? Just pray this idiot backs into the right choice at 3. That’s all Jet fans can hope for.

    Let me clarify. Youre correct in stating what you do about hindsight, I fully acknowledge that, and if I were a GM I’m sure I would would draft many players that never pan out, that’s just historical statistics that verify that reality for every GM and I would not be exempt. My problem with Maccagnan has to do with what I feel are scared, safe picks (that are done primarily to protect his job, all the pundits claim Leonard Williams is the “best player in the draft”, so Maccagnan takes him and meanwhile displaces another #1 pick Richardson from action on the field, what sense did that make? If you want to be really harsh you could actually call the drafting of Williams a “wasted pick”) in the premium rounds, which as you can see never materialize into the playmakers/game changers a #6 in the Nation pick should be. And think about it, all that money and resources invested in the Dline over many many years, did the Jets REALLY get anything close to the bang for the buck? I’m not as educated on the multitude of college players coming out in the draft as some of you on this site. I like to learn about the top players who might have the greatest impact on the Jets fortunes going forward. I think that draft thread on this site goes on and on well past the 1st Rd, am I right? I only visited it once I think. So I’ll tell you about who I liked last year and this year in this thread. I wanted Pat Mahomes drafted at 6 last year (he has only 1 game so far on his resume), so I’ll really gamble so you have an even greater opportunity to bash me later. I’m going to say that he is going to be one of the most electric players in the league, a true deadly Franchise QB, and will make Jet fans disgusted thinking that a Box Safety was drafted instead of him (again Consenus said he was the pick and Maccagnan tagged along), if they don’t hit in a big way this year on a QB. I also wanted Kamara drafted in the 2nd, which would be a big score for me in the way he has performed. I want the Jets to concentrate on The Offensive side of the ball. You draft Mahomes last year you now have an extra 3 2nd Rounders right now. Gil Brandt called it “highway robbery”, but Maccagnan is totally backed into a corner at this point, he KNOWS that the only way he survives personally in this job is to pick a QB NOW and pray he flourishes. If he sat at 6 and all the QBs came off the board he was done, he knows that. This year I want Rosen picked over Mayfield and Allen at 3, and if the choice is only Mayfield and Allen, I want Mayfield, the more I learn about Allen the more I think he will be a disaster, shouldn’t even be a 1st Day pick. In the 3rd Rd I would like the highest rated Olineman on the board, although my knowledge of who that might be is lacking, like I said there are guys on this site who know much more than me.

    I liked Cooper also, but who I really wanted with that pick was Vic Beasley. When was the last time the Jets could get to the QB? Williams was the classic Maccagnan pick, “safe”, and in retrospect many of the players classified as BAPs at the time, are seen as being far from that after a few years. Also, I’m sick of the Jets using high draft picks on players that are not game changers. At this point I think there are a ton of Jet fans who act almost like an abused spouse. If a guy is drafted and just sees the field...they’re happy, ie Calvin Pryor and many many more. That All has to come to an end now.

    It’s not hindsight. Maccagnan is a crowd follower, a Sheep. If you look at his picks the majority are scared, consensus following picks, picks that will generate the least amount criticism. Basically the ONLY time he rolled the dice and gambled in a big way was with Hackenberg, but he schemed an excuse if the pick busted and he actually used it a week ago...”picks don’t work out, it was only a 2nd”, which I knew he’d do. The worst part was not picking Hackenberg, it was the baffling judgement involved in so doing. But if he hit that pick he would be looking like the Supreme Genius in the NFL right now, and that’s why he played that horrific hand...but 2 years later by his own words he did not OWN it.

    Baker Mayfield meeting with Jets Brass(yesterday and today.)

    That was only 10 minutes, then supposedly he was seen at the movies with the corner Fitzpatrick...double feature.
  15. If you acknowledge that Bowles is the worst HC in the AFC East, and possibly the entire league coupled with an analysis of the "GM's" decisions being more in line with protecting his job first and foremost ahead of future success of the Organization which would have required much greater risk to himself than remove this thread title. Also, Maccagnan is near or at the bottom of the league in his capacity. His roster, 3 years later, supports that contention.
