    In that scenario maybe Emmitt Smith becomes Blair Thomas

    and if Blair Thomas ends up on the Jimmy Johnson era Cowboys

    et cetera 

     

    Blair did play in Dallas. He didn't  do much better there and here and Parcells was the HC.

    nice troll, but missed opportunity not talking about the great ownership of the Knicks - I hear cable is making a comeback, all this streaming and the internet is just a fad, If the Nets sign Kyrie Irving and KD the Knicks will have to move - much like MSG they will be irrelevant

    Haskins will beat the vagiants twice a year for the next decade, 3 times per year after they fire Gettleman and get out from under the bad contracts 

     

     

    You do know streaming is still pretty unreliable. Unless you are paying for 200 to 400 service which is so expensive, what is the point of Roku or Sling

    Mets, Knicks, Jets, Giants?

    Who gets it turned around the fastest. 

    I’ll go with the Giants because of Gettlemans track record (7 Super Bowls).

    The Knicks took a calculated risk in trading KP and it backfires

    The Mets have a great young core, but still a lot of holes on the roster and their owners don’t like to spend money

    The Jets success exclusively depends on how good Sam Darnold is. I don’t think he will be as good as fans make him out to be (hope I’m wrong there), because Dave Gettleman is a world class talent evaluator and passed on him. 

    The Giants will have a ton of draft picks, cap room, and a franchise QB in Jones who doesn’t need to be a savior the same way Darnold does. 

     

    Ok, I'll play along.

    The Knicks will turn it around the fastest

    They will get a really good player with the 3rd pick tonight even if it isn't  Zion, and they have two max slots. KD would have been one of those players but Irving is a major upgrade at PG and Leonard wouldn't  be such a bad choice if he doesn't  stay with Toronto.  There is also DeMarcus Cousins and Jimmy Butler who are FA. Bam. Instant contender.

    Is this a joke?

    Never mentioned bargain did I ? But when no other team is coming Close to your offer, why did Mac have to be a little punk and throw $$ away ? Did same thing with t Johnson, Revis, fitz.. was just a bad gm. All while letting a major position and need on offense go un touched. Center. No way Douglas would have not made a strong push for paradis. Mac was just a bad gm 

    Nobody is disputing  your position  on Mac, but overpaying for FA is what is done by every team. If you don't,  you will just sign scrubs.

  6. First off since Gase was not happy with the price of Bell, he probably signs with the Colts who I believe were tje other team that wanted to sign him. We don't draft QW, we trade down and get an OL most likely,  we still sign Mosely and Crowder. Maybe one of the C's is a Jet. Hard to say on that one. It's not like we didn't  invest in the OL so hard to say if we get both Ose and Paradis. That is a lot of money on the OL. Not sure Gase would have done that.

    Have to “ lol “ at this. Douglas, most certainly would have done better, Hell any gm would. Mac did not “ select out of thin air “ the signed players. He just lucked into a gm’s wet dream with most cap in nfl ? He didn’t “ woooo” anyone to come here. He just massively overpaid for Mosley, bell, and even crowder.. He wasn’t able to do 2 things at once like a normal gm. While he was letting bell search for last min offers, 2 of the top FA centers were signing elsewhere while Mac saw absolutely no urgency for a center. Which is no surprise since he was the biggest anti -OL gm. That is what really sent Gase over the edge. Any HC not a D guru like bowles, understands the importance of a quality center, especially for a young qb. Douglas and any competent gm in our position makes a hard run at paradis, and like gets him.. 

    Can you point out the bargain contracts that wee handed out to other players the caliber of Bell, Mosley, and Crowder. I'm not saying we didn't  overpay to get them, but that seems to be the norm now with quality FA players.

    He’s a millionaire involved with a good franchise that has access to the best trainers. He could easily be in good enough shape to play three important games. He could come back at the end of the season and have two weeks before the first game. 

    If he isn't  working out all year round,  he won't  be in football shape. He will be in good, maybe better than good, but he didn't  retire to spend all his time in a gym. 

  9. The question of whether  he comes back to play for the Pats  isn't really an issue. He won't  play for a different team. 

    That said, if he wants to come back and play for the Pat's right off his couch, let him. IMO gronk retired because it was him who was getting dominated by younger, faster defenders, not the other way around. That will only be a bigger issue if he comes back not in football shape

  10. Basically  as the team is constructed now, everything is in place for him to succeed  from the QB, to the defensive leader, to the front office. They are all his guys or a guy he is excited about (Darnold) so there is that. I don't think I have ever seen a situation like this on the Jets where a HC had this much power or support  except for Parcells but even this situations seems more favorable for Gase than Tuna experienced.  

    That said, I voted he is unproven. I personally  think he has an opportunity  to be Belichick in terms of having a superior talent at QB and just riding him to wins and being precieved  as a genius. I'm not sure he makes this team a winner on his own.

    Link?

    If the plan was to tank, why didn't we do it properly?  Why sign McCown?  Why not sink or swim with Hackenberg/Petty?  Why finish with the 6th pick and then have to give up three 2nds just for the chance to draft one of the "top 3" QB's (which could still have easily been Josh Allen)?

    And why did Macc make Kirk Cousins his Plan A and offer him the most money if the plan was always to draft a QB?

    Answer:  You're dead wrong. 

    He isn't  wrong

    If we would have started Hack or Petty, we would have had the lockerroom from Hell. The vet players would have mutinied over starting 2 guys that should have been cut already. Also, McCown was about the worst QB available. Ask anyone if they thought he would put up the numbers he did. He was a backup quality QB that never stayed healthy. Taking a guy like that keeps the vets in line and also pretty much guarantees you will not finish high which we didn't. Finishing with the top 6 pick means you sucked. 

    As far as Kirk, there was no way he was leaving g Washington to come here. Why would he ever do that. This place was QB purgatory.  I think the front office had to at least try anyway but did you actually think Cousins at his age was going to join a rebuilding team?

    As far as the second round selections, I never really understood  why people have a problem with this. That should go down as the best trade in franchise history.  It got us Darnold. I don't care that the Giants passed on him, they have there own crappy GM who will be fired next off season for taking a QB nobody expected to go in round 1, we got our guy. Great trade.

    I would 1000% guarantee it was yielding to the pressure to re-sign Fitzpatrick after that first year. 

    It's  obvious  the resigning of Fitz was a disaster but who else was there? If you want to say we overpaid  for him, I guess that's fair but in today's NFL, 10 or 12 million isn't  a lot for a starter at QB, even if he sucks. 

    Disclaimer

    This is in no way defending Mac. Mac was a bad GM. I'm mearly commenting on the Jets QB situation that season.

    If he could do it all over again what do you think he would do differently?

    Id bet his biggest regret was trying to field a competitive team in year one. He really messed up the timeline (He really screwed Bowles over) by trying to compete the first two years and then breaking it down in year 3. Obviously the awful drafting in 2015 and 2016 didn’t help his case either.

    He screwed Bowles over

    🤣🤣🤣

    So much pointless butthurt. You get that how good Mayfield is and how good Darnold is are not zero sum, right? Based solely on his ability to make Jets fans threatened and irrational and bitchy and delusional Mayfield projects as the next Brady. As compared to Darnold's being hopefully probably pretty good.

    Are you seriously saying Mayfield projects to be the best QB to ever play the game, because that is what Brady is. Didn't  Brady take the Pat's to a SB his first season. I think Baker fell a bit short of that. Maybe this season he proves me wrong but nothing I saw last season even suggests he will be the next Brady

    I get that but he wasn’t even speaking on his money. Where are y’all getting this from? Duke wants to leave because he’s soon to be behind Nick Chubb AND Kareem Hunt. The guy’s gripe is over playing time and his role on the team. If it was contractual issue then I’d agree with you but it’s not lol. I have no problem with Baker publicly telling a guy to buy into his role on the team no matter what that is or get lost. He’s being as blunt as possible and you really can’t hate on that. Could Baker have packaged it differently? Sure but it is what it is.

    Le’Veon Bell’s situation was contractual. People were counting his pockets. Again, not so much this tho.

    I didn't  get the buy into your role or get out. I felt It was more you are either with us or you are not and if you are not then get out. 

    I don't  blame Duke for wanting to leave. He has talent and a lot of teams would love to sign him and feature him as a third down back. That said due to Kareem  getting a long suspension,  he most likely will retain that role but the writing is on the wall. Johnson will be the odd man out in the rotation once Hunt starts playing.

    Baker Mayfield is 100% right. Probably shouldn’t have said it, but it makes him no less correct. 

    I don't  think so. This could turn into a pretty messy situation. I think Johnson is going to be there for the season and Baker should be smart enough to realize  this and stand behind his teammate.

    good intro for Joe - no real information as expected but he does seem real and happy to be here, nice touch showing respect to the people who helped him along the way

    Kim had a good question, rest of media looked and sounded like pathetic weasels 

     

    If you signed a contract that would pay you millions  for 6 years, wouldn't you be happy?

    literally no one knew Watson or Mahomes would be good, cant fault Maccc for that one

    Now that I'm thinking about this in context of his other selections, if he could spend a second on Hack, he certainly could have taken either Watson or Mahomes with the 6th overall. True nobody knew they would be as good as they are (not really convinced Watson is legit yet) but they were true QB prospects, a lot more true than Hack. It actually shows how dysfunctionally the draft was handled.

    Maccagnan sucked. Even the absentee owner could see this as soon as he became non-absentee.

    You couldn’t see it, and are losing your s*** with every post as you mope over the loss of a freaking bad GM.

    Not coincidentally, you also couldn’t see the joke in this thread — not until I spoonfed the simple explanation that hilariously went over your head.

    You’re allowed to be slow on the uptake, but if you keep up the personal attacks - this is two freebies I’ve undeservedly given you - you will get banned, plain and simple.

    Enjoy your stay here otherwise. Maccagnan sucks. 

    May as well get this in. I was commenting  on a fictional character in a TV show. You out of nowhere made this about Mac. You are the one starting 💩.

    In case you haven't  noticed,  you're the only one talking about Mac.even the Midget comparison was about Woody.
