    See, idk why guys say this. I understand 6-2 feels good but I didn’t enjoy barely beating Steelers back up QB’s, I didn’t enjoy winning 13-7 or whatever it was. I didn’t enjoy barely beating Buffalo’s back ups and I didn’t enjoy seeing Darnold look underwhelming in the finale. I see we got the W’s but I’m really not encouraged HOW we got the W’s.

    I usually agree with you on almost everything, but I could not disagree more.  a win is a win is a win!  it's contagious:  as they say winning breeds winning.  we lost to Buffalo by 1 and got destroyed by the Pats - but they both count as losses.  The Jets kept three teams out of the playoffs:  Steelers, Raiders and Cowboys.  sure, you can argue the first two, but no doubt about the boys!  and at the time, Raiders and Steelers were the #6 seed when they played the Jets.  

    I agree with Darnold.  I felt better last year at this time even though we lost at the end, but Sam looked great vs winning at the end this year because of defense.  But man, he just has absolutely NOTHING to work with.  Hoping Douglas shores up that line and Sam should be fine.  

    But yeah - never discount a win, man!  I don't care if we had an "easy" schedule - when we were 1-7, most pundits had the Jets as the worst team in football, therefore beating ANYBODY is a great thing!  and beating backups?  The Jets went on the field with a 3rd string team at best, so no apologies!!

    Could be in-game, draft, FA, etc.

     

    Lets try to keep the positives as genuine positives.

     

    (in no particular order)

    Positives:

    1. Of all the training camps I went to over the years, one of the practices was hands down my favorite.  I was able to get a picture with Sam, and autographs from Sam, Jamal, Jamison, Le'Veon, Gregg Mosley, and many others all in a single day.  I have gotten lucky with autographs from players over the years, but the quality of players in one year, let alone one day - and getting the pic with Sam on top of it was one of my favorite Jets summer moments ever.

    2.  The Jamal Adams "Gimme that!" strip fumble TD run.  Jamal is one of my favorite players on this team, not just current, but ever. and that was such an awesome play to see.

    3.  Tie between beating Pittsburgh, and Dallas.  I hate both teams, but living in Pennsylvania where Steelers are more arrogant than even the worst pats' fans on Sundays was such a great feeling.  Listening to all the **** talk for both of these games all week, to just being able to come in, not having to talk, watching coworkers and friends sink their heads so low, while just waving hi, with sinister smirk was a nice bit of revenge.  Adding the fact that the Jets victories basically took both these teams out of the playoffs was even more satisfying.

     

    Negatives:

    1.  The Patriots game at home.  Actually being at the game made it even worse.  I always wanted to see Brady play in person before he retired, but I also wanted to see a competitive game.  Oof.

    2.  The Jamal Adams drama.  This was blown way out of proportion on both sides, and with the losing slump, injuries piling up, this was the straw that broke the camels back.

    3.  Sam getting Mono.  Would it have made any difference?  Who knows, but this was the start of such a downward spiral in what most felt was going to be a promising season of growth.  If that didn't take the wind out of everyone's sails, I don't know what did.

     

     

    I was at that practice and remember seeing you, because you said you had that green f@#$ the Patriots shirt on I believe?  And same here:  I was there with my son and he got so many autographs!  He brought his Jets helmet and got Sam and Jamal, who we thought were the really cool signatures, and another that, at the time, seemed like nothing, but is now one of his favorite players:  Burgess!  LOL  funny how things work out! we were waiting for Sam, and Burgess just comes up to him and says: want my autograph?"  I mean we really didn't know who this guy was, but my son politely feigned excitement (guess it's that great parenting!) and now he's so thrilled to have it!  makes for a great story.

    My son calls it the "holy helmet" now and wants to bring it again next year for hopefully some more autographs!  It was  a great day!

    This is the narrative the Giants would like everyone to believe. The reality is the Vagiants wouldn't match the the offer he got from Carolina (an offer he couldn't refuse and one the giants had to refuse .... because it is absurd for an inexperienced college HC).  

    exactly.  the vagiants panicked.  enough said.  Panthers make the announcement, and within an hour, the giants say they are in negotiations with Judge since the night before.  huh???  they did not hire him at that point (to my knowledge, they STILL have not?) so why announce that ONE HOUR after the Rhule announcement?  why not announce it the night before?  why not wait till...you know...you actually HIRE the guy?  total panic move and once again, vagiants trying to cover it up.

     

    now hey, the guy may wind up being a great head coach;  who knows?  but the midgets knew the writing on the wall:  all three of their rivals in their division now had SB winning/appearance HCs and "their guy" got away.

    The giants were already in negotiations with judge yesterday. They cancelled their interview with Rhule because they knew they were hiring Judge

    that's what the midgets WANT us to think.  think about it:  WHY would they rush to announce this 1 hr after the Rhule announcement?  they still had interviews lined up.  makes no sense.  they care how they look / how they are perceived and knew they would get slaughtered.

    boy, this day just keeps getting better and better!

    One of the more curious things about this to me is, why the rush? It's not like teams were lining up to interview Judge for HC. They didn't even want to listen to what anyone else had to say? It reeks of a panic decision after Rhule was scooped up.

    because they want to make it SEEM like they chose him over Rhule.  Not that Rhule chose Carolina and they had no other choice.  typical VaGiants...gotta keep up the image.

    This is a surprising hire.  Maybe he'll turn out great but it sounds like they are settling.

    no, no, no - don't you see??  The VaGiants turned DOWN Rhule because they wanted the immortal Judge!!!

    in their efforts to be the "Yankees of football" they figured they needed a Judge.....

    They held our Wrs every play. Nfl fix.  Pennington was crazy good when healthy.  

    well that and the fact the Jets had ZERO run defense back then.  worked well when they were blowing out the Colts and Peyton had to keep passing, but the Raiders ran the ball I think like 15 consecutive plays at one point?  it was ridiculous - the Jets just could not stop the run.

  8. I don’t give a fukk now.... we are not being embarrassed on national TV. I’m OK with what’s happening.  We are on fumes and they are on steroids and we are hanging.  

    I think you said it right there. The best team in the NFL against this rag tag bunch of guys, and we are not being embarrassed.

    No...you’re right.  My mistake.

    I guess I just wanted that game recognized since the numbers were great for Darnold...again, making lots of plays, with not much of a team around him, and leading the team in a game that should have been won over Aaron Rodgers.

    no I agree 100%.  It was a great game for him, and should be "counted" - but just didn't fit into my argument.

    I really struggle understanding the anti Darnold crowd.  He is our qb and we should all be pro Darnold.  That being said, he does have to improve in a number of areas.  I personally believe he has the ability and work ethic to become a top 10-15 qb with an outside chance of becoming a top 5 down the road if given a chance to grow in a stable offense with a decent line and good weapons.

    me too.  I have enough giants fans in my life telling me how awful the Jets are (see the irony in that?) - so I don't need to come HERE and get the same thing!  it's ridiculous.

    You left out Green Bay the week after Houston last year....38 points 3 TDs 350 yards....he was etching a notch into his belt “Win over Aaron Rodgers at 21 years old”.....then with almost no time left....Bowles D “did its thing”.  The Kid has put up 30+ points in about 1/2 his starts since “the light went on” when he came back for the last 4 games of 2018 into this year.

    This is why I adjust his W-L record (Houston, Green Bay etc)...and it irks some people.  But I do it knowing that Sanchez, Pennington, Geno Smith would have won no more than 3 games playing with this OL and lack of play makers...over the same number of games Darnold has played....that should really put things into perspective.  

    Darnold has leaks in his game that I am confident he will correct (he already corrected an “elongated” throwing motion coming out of college to having Brian Baldinger totally marvel at how lightning quick his release was on that play in his own end zone last week where he had a defender draped all over him)....but he IS going to be a Franchise QB.

    I actually initially had the Packers game in there but then removed it because the point I was trying to make was 4th qtr comebacks, and the Jets were winning pretty much the whole game.  actually, now that I think about it, did the Pack actually take the lead in the 4th qtr?  maybe they did - I forget.  bt yes, that was another great game out of Sam.  unfortunately, he never got a chance in the OT.

  12. Just now, SAR I said:

    TWICE

    SAR I

    exactly.  just like the texans game last year...and the Browns game last year.....both times, Sam had the 4th qtr come from behind win in hand...and then the defense gave it up and we lost both games.

    same happened yesterday, but this time, Sam went right back down the field yet again and won the game.  progress.

    and I agree.  the fact that people are complaining about this guy shows just how good he is!  we would have all killed for a performance like that out of Geno, or Hack, etc etc etc

  13. I will say, I do like these type of games better than the Bengals/Dolphins/Redskins types.  nobody is expecting a win, so anything is gravy.  those other types of games, we are expected to win, and when we do, the reaction is: "meh well it was ONLY the fins".  I just hope the Jets don't get embarrassed like the Pats game.  at least play a little competitive, and as always, the biggest thing is for Sam to play well (or at least as well as a person can with that team...)

    I'm going with the fact that it was one game, that Darnold wasn't horrible yesterday (as many have said), and that even excellent Quarterbacks have bad games.  He was very average yesterday.  In fact, he was exactly average as I think he was the 16th overall QB in Rating.  2 TDs, 1 INT, 270 yards and a win....but most of yesterday's game day thread was focused on missing WRs and throwing off the back foot.  Not that those latter things aren't important, they are.  But this is a 5-win Jets team and my commentary is more about a fan base that not only hates the losses we've had but that can't even enjoy a win anymore.  If Week 1's one-point loss to the Bills was a train wreck for our fans then yesterday's one-point win still seems like a car crash for some reason.  Sam made some mistakes and had some misses, he also won the game, had more TDs than INTs, and lead an offense that tried to run but still only averaged around 3.9 yards per carry for Powell.

    I  think you nailed it right there.  can't bitch and moan about the 1-point loss in week one and then still be pi$$ed about yesterday!  Sam could not lead the GW drive in week one, and he did yesterday.  that is progress.  we have seen games where overall he played very well, but in crunch time, he could not get it done.  yesterday, he played very well in the first half and then had a bad second half (he was the first to admit it at the press conference afterwards) but he had two GW drives in the 4th quarter yesterday.  man, it felt like the texans game from last year:  Sam leads team down for a GW drive and then the defense just lets the opponent go right down and score.  difference is, this game, Sam marched the offense right back down the field again and won the game!

    and I don't want to hear that it "was only the fins".  the fins that had beaten us 4 times in a row.  and that team that the Jets trotted out there yesterday should not be able to beat any professional football team.  I'm sorry.  the fact that we could win against anyone yesterday is a good thing.

  15. This board acts like we have a good roster. 
    Any win this team gets, especially with the incredible litany of injuries, is a struggle. 
    We probably had like 8-10 guys start for us today who are barely even NFL backups. 
    Compare our offensive line and secondary to every other unit in the league. Are we not bottom 3 in both groups?

    Exactly! The fact the Jets can win against ANYONE with that roster is a minor miracle. How many starters are out? Both corners, one safety, three LBs, FOUR o-linemen, Herndon, Quincy, Bell (BELL!), then even Griffin goes down! Are you kidding me?
