    Next Head Coach?

    I hate to say it but I think we are stuck with Mac and Bowles for next year too. They will both be fired during or at the end of the 2019 season. Even if we have to endure another poorly coached season, it will set a solid tone that the organization with allow the new GM and coach time to implement their own personnel. (For the sake of my sanity please let the GM pick his coach!). We’d probably miss out in DeFilipo as he will surely get a lot of attention this offseason. Maybe John Harbaugh is fired this year and he goes the tv route to double dip on the salary? Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  2. This has become a Bowles move. Down by more than one score - he is punting. I absolutely disagreed with the call yesterday. There really was no downside for going for it on 4-13 (or even 4-25). Sam is a position where the “game is in his hands” which it will be many times in his career so, the experience will be needed. Outcomes: 1- the makes the throw - huge confidence boost. 2- they don’t make it or INT what is the real downsize? He didn’t make a play that he probably wasn’t expected to make? They still lose. (You can’t say they punted to protect him from injury because if that were the case they would not have sent him back for the final drive). Pure and simple with was a white flag move by Bowles.

  3. This was a typical Todd Bowles and company game. Get a lead then try and protect the lead with the soft defense. The other problem I noticed with the offense was the snap count. I am not sure how many times there “should” have been a delay of game on the offense. The clock would always seemed be a :01 for the snap. There was almost no variation in the snap count. The Brown’s D was just teeing off. On the other side of the ball Haley put Mayfield in a position to succeed. He had them run the hurry up at times to keep the Jets on their heels.

    Sam Darnold, NFL draft diary

    I definitely think we lucked out with him! Seems like a great kid. Also, notice the the two ties he bought? The brown one and a blue one came out of the suit bag in his house. Not many including him thought he’d be there for number three. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  5. Would love to get Ray. I like 1-4 but 5 should be get Bates ready to be the HC. Have him looking beyond the OC position. I was a Bowles guy, thought he had potential to grow into a good HC. I was wrong. But he’s a very good coordinator who get drawn thin as a HC. He will go back to being a Dom Capers type puts some goods Defenses together he will get one more shot at a HC fail and have a great career as a DC. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Grade the Jets Draft

    Would you really trust Qvale for any extended time protecting a rookie QB? He is fine as a guy you use in a pinch but with all the “ifs” on the line it could be disastrous. I guess I just still have real concerns about the OL. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Grade the Jets Draft

    I guess this is why I was not thrilled with the pick in the third. The Jets have a ton of holes. The Oline has a lot of “ifs”. If Beachum stays healthy, if Winters is 100% if we keep Carpenter (that one looks like we can scratch off the ifs). Long is obviously better than Johnson but is he long term? He’s not Mangold. With all the if working out our line isn’t that bad. That is not good enough for a rookie QB. I mean if they decide to red shirt Darnold I get this draft and would be much more comfortable going into the season. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Grade the Jets Draft

    I’ll go with a B for the draft. Round 1 A didn’t think he’d be there. Round 3&4 D- I think the Jets should have swung for need Brown and Sweat would have been my picks. Shepard and Herndon are a bit of odd picks for me. Especially since we traded for another DL. And have an injured TE from last years draft. Round 6 A- they did what you should do at the end of the draft. Take guys with a special trait. You can’t teach speed. Two of the guys seem to fit that bill. I don’t expect much from a 6 round pick but they made the right calls on these three. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Day-3 (Rounds 4-7)

    I agree. I think once you’d wait until the 4-5 rounds and grab really good guard prospect. Those guys are now moving into the second and third rounds. They are all getting expensive. The excuse they will take more time to develop is just pushing the timeline back a year by not taking one now and starting the process. I like the sixth round picks. You take guys with a special talent. The CB is a speedster. The DT seems to a run stopper. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Welcome Nathan Shepherd

    I think most of “hate” or really the uncertainty of this pick is the unknown. I will go out on a limb and say very few if anyone saw him play much. When you read reports that he is raw, 24 years old and from a DII school if gives people pause. Considering at 24 he should have been destroying his league. He was literally a man playing against boys. It does sound promising that he was more than holding his own at the Senior Bowl. But with kind of household names like Brown sitting there who played very well at OU and has great bloodlines(even with a terrible combine). I would have taken the risk on a known quantity. But not being a GM I get no say. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Welcome Nathan Shepherd

    I don’t think people are trashing Shepherd, the player, hopefully they can get him up to speed quickly so he can contribute this year. I think it more boils down to the fact the Jets have basically ignored the offensive line for so long. It is by far the weakest part of the team. We basically only improved the center position in FA (and he is an average center which was a huge upgrade over what we had). There is limited quality depth. With 3rd rounders being about a 50/50 proposition I think many would have gambled on the Oline. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Welcome Nathan Shepherd

    In the third round the turn over and success rate is not great. I liked Brown, in the third round. He had a terrible combine but played well on the field. I would have taken a shot on him. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Welcome Nathan Shepherd

    I really don’t have an issue going for a DL. Shepard sounds like a great story (but is is this opposite of the Hack effect?). We had luck with Snacks and Shepard is the next Snacks? I am not sure how long we can avoid the OLine. The last few drafts the OL pretty much been an after thought. When you get middle late in the draft it becomes much more of a crap shoot. Take a shot on the Oline. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Welcome Nathan Shepherd

    Completely, forgot about that one. Still hope they spend more draft picks on offense. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Welcome Nathan Shepherd

    You are absolutely correct the DL needs some help. However, the OL needs so much more help. We are short on draft picks (5th I think is gone for SF corner back) and take the best tackle and if he fails move him to guard. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
