  1. It was not a great day for Darnold. The line was a mess and he would stare down his receiver. Watching from my seat it looks like even when pre-snapped he was looking left and his head never moved. It resulted in a few knocked down passes and easy reads for the DB. No need to jump ship. They Need the line to work together a little more and gel. (At least that’s what I hope!). Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  2. Very quiet game at the stadium. (I am in Sec 121) there were loads of Bills fans. It will be heavily loaded this year with visitor’s fans. Eagle, Cowboy, Raider, Steeler, Patriot and Giant fans travel well and will be out in force. At least the Bill’s fans are generally good natured and fun to talk to.

  3. This “outrage” over firing a scout has be a low point for Manish..... wait it is no where near a low point. I fully expect Gase to clean the house of marginal players and marginal personnel. It makes the GM job more attractive as the new GM will not start off his tenure with a firing spree. He will hire his guys to move in with greater ease. Gase dumping marginal players and signing camp competition big deal. These guys get signed and waived all the time. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  4. Well, Foles is an upgrade over Bortles. In May, it is difficult to call games on teams are “improving”. I think the Jags has an top 5 defense last year playing them at their home is a tough game for a young team. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  5. Eagles, Patriots and Jags on the road are probably Loses. (Yes judging on expectations and current rosters). Wouldn’t you rather have the Bengals, Dolphins and Redskins road games in the first half of the season? I see some tight games the first half with no easy game.

  6. I hate to say it’s more likely the Jets go 0-7 than 2-0. The schedule makers did the Jets no favor with the schedule. Tough home games and no cupcake road games. The second half of the schedule is much more manageable. I think and would be happy with a 7-9 season. Show some improvement get the team to gel. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  7. Quick question. Last year wasn’t one of the reasons given why Darnold’s play was down was due to the sub-par line? So we take said sub-par line into the nfl and expect better results? Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  8. Mac still has no idea on what the draft is about. Go get the players you need. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  9. Exactly! How do we invest most of the FA money last year when we knew we were getting a QB in the draft and all draft picks on the D last year! This year we get Bell and spend 75% of FA Money on D and all draft capital on the D as well!?!?? It is insanity! Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  10. Don’t worry we will take a CB with the next pick. “The third best cover in the draft”! Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  11. Please that Finley, Stidham or Grier with the next pick! We will need 4 qbs to get thru the season! Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  12. Is there really a debate to this? Gettleman has been hired more than once to be a GM. Mac will never be hired again as a GM once he his fired from the Jets. Gettleman has ties to the Giants and was told to give Eli a chance for a run. Did you see when they benched Eli and how the media and fans reacted? He needs a QB for the future. Is Haskins the guy? Maybe he is the Big Ben? If so, it was well played by Gettleman. I mean having Barkley is a huge benefit for a rookie QB. Mac’s drafts and his big free agent signings have been poor to say the least. All GMs miss however he has only a plan he can see. Most GMs have a plan and when it is executed you see the plan. I have never figured out what Mac is doing or how the plan is coming together. (Granted I am just a guy who watches and follows football as a fan). Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  13. Absolutely 100% correct! MM should have been shown the door. I will never claim to have knowledge on all draft talent or who will bust or surprise. However, since I don’t post much but I remember the draft day thread and I wanted Brown (most want one of Brown, Okorafor or Hubbard. ). It seemed like a fairly easy call to do OL since you have a new QB and a suspect line at best. Considering the OC was a revolving door take the best possible OL and see what they could do. The third round is for the top talent that drops for bad combines, arrests or drug tests. IT IS NOT FOR OLDER, SMALL SCHOOL, MARGINAL TALENT. Harrison may become a decent lineman but he is a 6-7 round flier. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  14. It’s a copycat league. Once Mayfield had a strong year teams will look beyond the fact that Murray is shorter than Mayfield and want to get the “next big thing”. Murray is a better athlete than Mayfield and he hopefully “RGIII” the draft. Someone (looking at you Snyder, again) falls for it and offers up a great deal. I hope it to the Jets.

  15. There is a long time until the draft. There are a few teams that need a QB. A few of those teams we be left out of the Free Agent/Trade QBs. We just need one GM lose out in the veterans and be on the hot seat just enough for them to feel the pressure to make a splash and grab the best QB on their draft. Someone will fall in love with a one of them. I am also not opposed to have them wait until a draft day trade (really wish we had a GM other than Maccagnan) you never know how the draft will break. Look at last year and how much more the Colts have could gotten with Darnold sitting there instead of the Jets deal where it was a chance at the number 3 QB. Cards, Jets and Bills would have probably offered a 2019 first with last year’s picks. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  16. You are certainly correct pressers don’t win games. However, when they are so bad/strange as this one was it puts Gase deeper in the hole. I can guarantee that none of those guys wanted it to go where it did. They probably wanted a eventless press conference with a few easy questions. Get in and get out. They did not want memes of a bugged eyed head coach. When I say of of the worst it is because it will be replayed for years after he his long gone. Also, I do find it funny how people are claiming he is on the spectrum without ever meeting the man. Honestly he is just probably a little awkward nothing more.

  17. Obviously that was one the worst press conferences ever for a new head coach. The worst part is that Gase has done this before. You can give a first time coach a pass (well in most markets) however a coach with three years of experience is not a great first impression as a new head coach. Was I mistaken when Gase was speaking about how his Miami Offense was not highly ranked say “we gave up stats for wins”? If true, 1. Don’t teams usually win more with better stats on offense. I mean this made me do a double take. Not sure if I heard that wrong. 2. What players in today’s NFL will want to come play for a coach who says that he held the stats down? In a “I have to get mine numbers for my next big contract” will this play out for FAs? Granted Gase was not my first choice and will still get behind him however I am not feeling very positive about this hire. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  18. Realistically, 6 wins. We have a new offense and new defense coming in. Hopefully new actual talent (who knows who we draft/sign). I will assume we get some of the picks and FA right. (Not a ton of faith in Mac). This all adds up to 6 wins. I am sure there will be growing pains with all the new systems and players. One week it will be a defensive lapse the next an offensive lapse. That being said if the players show improvement I will be fine with the process. If Mac does his usual draft he will be gone. If Gase blows up they are both gone. Regardless, it will be entertaining.

  19. I think Gase could become a very good head coach. The problem is it rarely seems to happen when a hot shot young coach is fired then takes another HC job right after. He probably would have been better served to go to a team as an OC for a couple of years and regroup. I hope I am wrong and he learned from his experience in Miami.

  20. Just look at it this way. I will not even bring all the college coaches in. How many Big 12 head coaches would want a head of Rhule? Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  21. Not sure how some kind of gloss over the lack of NFL experience. College and the NFL are really two different animals. It’s great he turned two programs around. That has nothing to do with running a NFL locker room filled with multi-millionaires and large egos. The Jets always seem to get first time head coaches. As a fan there is always a learning curve for them. Why in the world would you have to have a young FQB deal with that in addition to learning how to be a Pro!?!? Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  22. There is nothing signed yet. I can only hope that this is just Twitter rumors. I mean hiring a head coach with so little NFL experience will only end in disaster. I will give him two years and we will be looking for new GM and coach. The talk of interviewing other would be head coaches to take over as OC is a bad move. Forcing people to work under another rarely works. (Look at the Browns this year). Hire an NFL guy! They will have connections and at least a working relationship.

  23. This is just more Manish foolishness. McCarthy is a very good to great NFL head coach. Rodgers by some accounts seems to have “out grown” him as a coach. That is not a bad thing just the next step for Rodgers. A long term working relationship between coach and QB can change (look at NE it is not what it once was between Brady and Belichick) it doesn’t mean McCarthy can no longer coach. It just means that Green Bay needs a change. The Jets need someone to develop Darnold. He needs to be put in situations that allow him mature and learn. McCarthy has done that with Gannon, Hasselback, Brooks, and Rodgers were all effective when he was involved with them. If we can hire him it would be a no-brainer. Take him, have him develop the basics with Darnold in the long haul it would be the best move. Also, those talking about the failed coordinator from his coaching tree. 1. Most “hot shot” coordinators fail has head coaches. 2. It at least says he hires and trains up others for the next job. I cannot remember the last time one the Jet’s coaches was poached for a head coaching job. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  24. I agree Macc should be fired. He has preformed as badly as Bowles. Will a big time coach work under Macc? I highly doubt any would. If they keep the same structure where GM and coach report only to the Johnsons? Maybe one will take it. There are only a handful of openings. They may take it knowing they will win and power struggle. (Coaches have massive egos) Unfortunately, the Jets have a terrible organizational structure. They don’t allow Macc to hire his own coach when he started and was an unknown quantity but they now allow him to hire or at least have input in the coach when he has proven himself to be a poor GM!?!? If the Johnsons don’t fire him now we are stuck with Macc for at least a couple of years if he hires a first time coach. My guess is we will miss out on the big names coaches and Coordinators. We will talk ourselves into liking whomever is hired only to be back here in a year or so looking for the next coach and GM. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  25. If Mac is picking, it is an assistant coach. No way, he wants an established coach who has a high name recognition. He will be exposed very quickly. I bet he goes for a DC who likes all the first round picks we have along with the 3rd pick in a D heavy draft. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
