    Sam and Baker are diametrically opposed personalities. 

    I like them both. MUCH happier that Sam is our QB and I truly believe he’ll be the better QB but Baker is fun and will be damn good. 

    And I get that some folks hate Baker’s act but I think he’s entertaining AND a great QB. 

    Going to be a fun 12 plus years. 

    someone mentioned yesterday that WWE icon Stone Cold likes Baker.  I think if Baker was in the WWE, his act would be absolutely perfect!!!  Hell, I'd cheer for him!  and Sam?  well Sam would be so damn boring and would be run out of WWE so quickly that's for sure!

    But this is the NFL, not WWE:  I don't want that crap out of my QB, no matter how good he is.  We have been down this road before too many times.  So nice to have Sam as "the face that runs the place"!!

    I'm surprised they got that much out of him. I know he's confident, but I wouldn't've expected more from him than, "I expect a good year." 

    I mean he did say it with a chuckle.  I was recording video on my phone while he was autographing my son's stuff, so I did not get this, but there very easily could have been someone else doing the same thing I was at that very moment.  So he is very confident, that's for sure.  love it!

    So psyched the game is tonight. C;mon Sam, TD on the first drive then watch the rest of the game from the sidelines.

    this would be perfect!

    I usually do not get excited for pre-season games, except for last year.  it was cool having Sam as the backup.  gave me a reason to watch late in the first half when he came in and then played the rest of the game.

    You think they give him 2? I could see us getting the ball first and giving Darnold one drive for this game and that’s it. 

    With Bell out, the rb position will be interesting to watch. Who gets more touches, Cannon or Eli ?

    Jachai Polite coming out party ?

    Tom Compton, Edoga, Harrison. Really hoping we can see come great play from the back ups this preseason. 

    Rontez Miles with the ones ?!? Sheeeesh

    is Cashman the real deal?

    I agree but what if the ones go three and out?  on't want that bad taste in you mouth, especially against that bad Giants D....

    This is ridiculous! In 2009 the Jets had the best running game in football & a top 3 Oline. Last year the Jets running game was ranked #30. The Packers went 6-9-1 without a running game & they have the best QB in football. 

    Is there a Jet fan on this board that believes Sanchez could match Sams QBR the last quarter of the season missing 3/4 of the Oline, handing off to Eli McGuire & Trenton Cannon, throwing to a rookie TE, an UDFA, & Punt & kickoff returner in Roberts? 

    Give me a freaking break because we all know the answer to that question. 

    I think you nailed it right here.  well said.

    I think it's both ways here.  But I hear ya.  I am optimistic, but I have to admit I don't do well with optimism when it comes to the Jets. The one time, and last time I let it sink in was opening day of 1999. I honestly thought we were the team that was going to win it all.  Before the game  I thought "this must be what niners fans feel like".  lol   

    I was actually in Cleveland with a bunch of other fans welcoming the Browns back to the NFL for their first game as the new Browns.  I thought it was going to be such a great day.  I has such altruistic NFL hopes.  Then Vinny tore his achilles and the Browns fans attacked me for it.  I ended up getting arrested right outside the Cleveland Browns stadium for about a 20 person brawl with those jerks who just wouldn't allow my Jets jersey to be there. Oh... I was the only guy arrested for fighting about 10 Browns fans by myself. Grab the Keyshawn jersey.  What a terrible day that started with so much hope. lmao 

    And now you know why I REALLY hate the Browns and whoever their QB of the month is.  :)  Oh...but I digress. 

    wow.  I agree with '99 - good times.  but last time I felt this good was 2011.  after two straight AFC championship game appearances, how could we not?  all downhill after that.

    And I agree with the optimism overall:  as a Jets fan our mantra is: "hope for the best, but expect the worst"!  I should have clarified my comment as optimism about DARNOLD.  there is a LOT of negative energy on this board regarding him, and I just do not understand it?  It's not like we have had a Brady-caliber QB for 20 years and Sam is trying to fill his shoes.  I mean who have we had to watch over the last 10 years?  the Sanchize, Geno, FitzTragic, Hack, etc?

  7. These vids are collections of others iterviews, some of which I've seen before, all in one place.  The first one is Ian Rappaport.  There is about a 25 second sound issue.  It passes and the rest is fine.   I gotta say, I'm getting nervous with all of this Jets love guys.  It makes me uncomfortable to see how much everyone outside of our fan base loves Sam Darnold before he's really done anything.  I don't know why it bothers me but it does.  Even the way Gase gushes about Sam makes me nervous.  Hmmmmm.  
    Enjoy the vids

    Key words: “outside of our fan base”. Sad but true. It’s amazing how elsewhere you hear good things about Sam but here it’s “well it was ONLY three games last year”....”it’s only practice”.....”Baker is so much better”.....etc.

    I know we are long suffering Jets fans, but a little optimism never killed anyone!

  8. This makes me even happier that when I got a picture with Sam after Saturday's camp practice this week wearing my **** the Patriots shirt.
    I still need to make a post with my pics from the weekend.  Maybe I'll do it tonight if I dont suck.

    I know who you are! I was there and took a pic of you! I was about to post it here but not sure you’d want me to....

    If he was the Jets QB (and almost was) you’d be eating this up for breakfast lunch and dinner. Everyone here would. 

    Let him be who he is, I say. It’s fun and nice change for the NFL and Kraft era of snootery

    not me.  not a chance in hell.  you remember how Sanchez got killed for that whole GQ white t-shirt thing?  this is worse.

  10. He may not fix ot with these signings, but he can certainly swap out the terrible players we currently have for not-as-terrible players. 
    I like what Joe is doing. Get bodies in, compete and provide yourself opportunity to swap out as much of your current terrible players as possible.

    I get it, and was really just kidding. My point is: it’s not like he’s going out and getting another RB or LB or something. I think most of us would agree OL and CB are probably highest on our needs list and anything helps!

    True.  I'd be very happy to only see Sam for the 1st half of the 3rd game.  Preseason games are terrible.  I can't wait until they finally cut them in half.  

    Agree.  that is the ONLY thing I liked about last year vs this year:  since Sam was the rookie, we had a reason to watch pre-season games!  I think he came in late 1st half, then played full second half of the first game.  it was must watch!!  LOL
