    Your best Jets practice/game story

    So many to choose from! Best game memories at Shea: * Being at the Jets-Raiders AFL championship game. Was only 6, my family had season fix from when the Jets started playing at Shea. I thought this was the way every season ended. Silly yout' * Watch Joe Willie return to the field against the 49ers in '72. Our season fix were upper deck section 10, about half way up. First time I ever felt Shea rock, Namath almost brought the Jets back from being 3 TDs down, almost pulled it out. * Bobby Howfield kicking 6 fgs against the Saints, with the last one at the gun to win the game 18-17. * Being at the first home MNF game against the Vikings, with the Jets winning 14-7. The game mostly sucked, but what I remember most was I've never seen so many wasted humanoids at a game. I saved one drunk's life as I caught him just as he stumbled by me in my row. I had aisle seats, so if I didn't grab him, he would've tumbled down about 15 rows. * Being in the midst of the upper deck sections who originated the J-E-T-S chant. So many more, but I'll stop there. My favorite training camp story was when my summer day camp went to Jets training camp. Backstory: there was a bar in my neighborhood in Jackson Heights called the Captain's Cabin. After home games, many of the Jets used to go there. My dad knew the owner, so he would call us when they were there, and I got to see many of the Jets all the time, including Namath. So when we got near Joe Willie to ask for his autograph, he looked at me and said something like, "hey, you're the kid from the bar!" I got his autograph, and for the rest of the summer, I was known as the kid who knows Joe Namath. 😀

    Story on Jets pursuit of Darnold

    What a great article. This flies in the face of the thinking by some that since the Jets "knew" that Darnold was going first overall, that they never did much work on him. Also interesting to see that Allen was not in their top 3 of QB prospects. But overall, you cannot read that article and not get pumped for the potential Darnold has.
  3. Put me down as a definite yes in moving up to 3. Here is something I haven't seen mentioned: as the draft played out, Mikey Mac made a great decision in moving into the 3 spot a month prior to the draft. If he didn't, and the Colts still had the #3 pick, with every QB still on the board at #3, what a bidding war they could've had!! I have no doubt that by waiting, the Jets either would've been outbid for the #3, or they would have had to substitute the #2 pick next year for a #1.
  4. Spot on man. I love the fact that this draft fell exactly as hoped. For the Jets to have the choice between Darnold and Rosen was unreal. I loved Rosen's footwork and tech skills, but there is a reason that Darnold had been graded out as the #1 QB for most draftniks. As far as Darnold's last season at USC, it reminds me a bit of Marino's last year at Pitt. Going into his senior season, Marino was considered the consensus #1. Marino's senior season was generally awful. Yes, the rumors of a failed drug test back then hurt him, but he also dropped due to that reason. Now Darnold obviously didn't play as many college football games as Marino, but it shows one that you have to look at the potential as well as the overall body of work. Excited!!!!

    cognitive dissonance

    Great song by Robert Fripp's League of Gentlemen... The next two and a half hours are going to be torture.

    Josh Rosen Soul And Science

    Definitely, you could see that in his movement, very fluid. That is why I think this talk about him being a statue in the pocket is crap. He has the ability to move in the pocket.

    Josh Rosen Soul And Science

    I did catch it this morning. What impressed me about Rosen was his movement in the pocket, and how he kept his his shoulder squared up while moving laterally. What I didn't like was that the passes he threw while moving laterally were just dump offs, I would've liked to him have to throw downfield. That being said, his arm speed, release, and accuracy is grade A stuff. I definitely liked what I saw.
  8. If the Browns truly love Allen, it would be nuts not to take Barkley #1 overall (if they feel that he's the BPOB). They could trade out of the #4, but if they fall too far back, you have to think that the Bills will do everything they can to trade up in front of the Browns. And wouldn't that be true Browns...have two of the first 4 picks and come away with 0 QB's.
  9. That was still my thinking, is that the Browns are floating Mayfield out there to see if a team like the Jets bite. We are still about 5 1/2 hours from the Browns on the clock, so it would be a smart move to put that out there. Now if this is true, I could definitely see the Giants still locked in on Barkley, and it would not shock me if they stayed with him at #2. Another thought on this crazy day is if Darnold is available at #2, does a team like the Broncos try and move up to #2. If let's say that the Giants have Chubb as the #1 player overall, and the Broncos look at Darnold and feel that with Keenum in place, there wouldn't be the pressure for Darnold to start day one, it would be a smart move for the Giants to trade out of #2, and pick up a boatload of picks.
  10. Hey Dave, My screen name is actually the jersey #'s for Jets OL from SB III. 😀 Thanks for the build up, let's see if I still have my fastball. It would be great if some of the Usenet crew is out here. The wars that we had back then were epic. As far as the validity of the info, who knows? Everyone is throwing up smokescreens right now. Is it plausible that the Giants don't like Rosen? Sure it is. He might've flunked his interview with them. Another angle could be by throwing this out via back channel, it could give a team that wants to get up to 2 for a QB. Right now, unless the Giants don't dig any of the guys slotted in the top 5 or 6, I could only see the Broncos moving up, as I'd be surprised if Gettlemen would want to drop out of the top 10.

  11. Hi all, First time, long time... Long time lurker, from what seems like a hundred years ago, I used to post on a.s.f.p.ny-jets and was a part of many a Jets/Pats newsgroup war. Looking forward to posting more out here, but I saw an article on CBSports that I have seen posted anywhere out here, if it was, apologies. The story, written by Will Brunson, states that the talk around the Giants is that the only QB they will take at #2 is Darnold. As for Josh Rosen, the story states that the Giants have no interest in drafting him. With all of the pre-draft gaga out there now, who knows what is truth and what is propoganda, but an interesting take nonetheless. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/the-giants-would-reportedly-draft-sam-darnold-at-no-2-overall-dont-like-josh-rosen/ David Lee T
