  1. If you want to be in these conversations and give your opinions, then you tell us how many standard deviations away there are, or just stay out of the conversation. Otherwise your opinion is mute if you have to rely on someone else to explain your argument.
  2. Sounds like you are talking about Adams, interchangeable. However we need a #1 receiver more than a safety.
  3. How about Bell and Adams for OBJ and Kareem Hunt? We address WR and RB in one move. Allows us more flexibility in FA and the draft, and stops the war that's is coming between Adams and the Jets.
  4. Your spiel is getting obnoxious. You have no idea what is going on behind the scenes for Joe Douglas or the staff. As if the GM has time to spare coddling to know it alls like you. You assume you know nothing is getting done without any documentation. Your rambling posts all throughout this entire thread have no credence. Seems to me you should be talking with Woody Johnson if you don't feel this organization is doing things properly. Lets give this GM the chance to show what he can do before cutting him down.
  5. To build a team properly encompasses getting a pass rush, from the front 4, not the safeties. Did you see the Giants beat the Patriots? Their defense, especially their pass rush won those games. We haven't had a pass rush since Abraham, and we should have drafted Josh Allen last year.
  6. You say over and over that he is the best player on the NY Jets, but what is that worth? Now when you say that Mahommes is the best player on the Chiefs, that means something. Adams is a self promoting good player who the media will go to hoping he says something controversial, which he does. We will all see what kind of prez, or team leader he is, if he takes a reasonable offer to stay with the Jets. If he does, great, if he just wants the most money, get what you can for him and move on.
  7. This commissioner is a joke, and he is turning the entire league into a joke. Whatever happened to the Patriots filming the Bengals, Browns game? Nothing...it is absolutely ridiculous how this league is run and the favoritism allotted certain owners. As far as Rose, and Joe Jackson, if guys like McGuire, Clemons, Sosa, and Barry(my head didn't get bigger) Bonds ever get elected into the Hall and Rose doesn't, that will be unacceptable. I personally don't want any of them elected, but if you put one in, you have to put them all in.
  8. I was at the Dolphin-Jets game in Miami last season. Roberts started and played the entire game, I focused on him a lot. He got beat like a drum, made Fitzpatrick look like Joe Montana. They kept throwing at him and he never adjusted. I think that game is the one who put him on the bench. Let him go and save the money.
  9. There is absolutely no way that they draft defense at 11. The 2 buffoon GMs of the past listened to their defensive head coaches, Ryan and Bowles, and let them pick the players. Douglas will show you that he will be in charge, and this team needs to help the offense now.
  10. WTF? You make some good points, but, Happy train with choo choo whistles and ice cream. Let me know what you are drinking or smoking,,,,,ALL ABOARD!!!!!
  11. Same here, retired from NY and moved to Florida. Been a fan since before Namath won the Super Bowl. Went to the Dolphin game in Miami this year and there are a ton of Jets fans down here. Namath and Klecko were my two all time favorites. Go Jets!!!!
  12. Hopefully they won't have a 1st round pick!
  13. New York Jets are in no position to pay Jamal Adams, should seek trade by K. Jared Wright 1 day ago Follow @kw867233 Tweet Share x Pin Comment The New York Jets would be wise to avoid paying Jamal Adams due to the current state of the roster and instead seek a trade involving the All-Pro safety. As the 2020 offseason is now upon us, New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas will be overseeing his first free agency and draft in this position. In terms of the salary cap, the Jets are in a good position this offseason. It is just a matter of using that money productively. The New York Post’s Brian Costello details the Jets’ current cap situation going into the offseason. “The Jets have just under $60 million in cap space, according to overthecap.com. That number can jump to closer to $80 million with a few cuts – Trumaine Johnson, Brian Winters and Avery Williamson all range from definitely gone (Johnson, Winters) to possibly (Williamson).” Costello says while this could be seen as a lot of money to play with, the Jets will have 22 unrestricted free agents and their best player will want a new contract, so a good amount of that money may not be of use when free agency begins. The “best player” in question? Safety Jamal Adams. There is no question that Jamal is the heart and soul of the Jets. In some down years, he has been one of the few playing with any sort of heart or tenacity. As such, he deserves every dollar he would get in a new contract. That contract should just not be paid by the Jets. One issue that complicates this is the contract that Chicago Bears safety Eddie Jackson recently signed. Jackson is now the highest-paid safety in NFL history, signing a four-year extension worth $58.4 million. The contract comes with $33 million worth of total guarantees. By Pro Football Focus‘ metrics, Jackson posted a 66.9 grade in 2019 while Jamal Adams posted an 88.2. Moreover, SNY cites PFF saying “Adams led all safeties with 44 defensive stops and 22 quarterback pressures.” Keeping these statistics in mind, and the fact that Adams is a few years younger, he will undoubtedly (and deservedly) eclipse Eddie Jackson‘s numbers in his new deal. Whether off the edge, along the offensive line, or any of the other holes the team has, Jamal Adams is a luxury the Jets simply cannot afford to pony up top dollar for right now. A football team is supposed to be built from the trenches out. Adams was not a pick of Douglas nor head coach Adam Gase. For their tenure, it might behoove them to see what they would be able to receive in exchange for moving him elsewhere in 2020. If Gase’s response in press conferences is any indication, he is upset the team is saddled with the contract of running back Le’Veon Bell. Bell is bringing a ~$15 million cap hit into 2020. For a player on the roster who did not come under Douglas or Gase, this is a sizable hit. There are certainly arguments to be made about how underutilized in the offense Bell currently is and how Gase should be using him, but that’s a story for another day. One may infer that it is a big ask to invest heavily in two players (unless the new regime absolutely loves and believes in them) that they did not invest in, to begin with. To Douglas’ credit, he certainly knows Adams’ worth. Rumor is that while in talks with the Dallas Cowboys, Douglas was asking for Zack Martin before being rebuffed. The Cowboys also know Adams’ worth as they were said to offer first and third-round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, and returned with an offer of one first and two second-round picks. The Jets were unmoved, allegedly looking for first-round picks in 2020 and 2021, in addition to a day two pick in one of those time frames. With the new league set to begin, CBS has predicted that the Cowboys will try and make a run at Adams once again. “Dallas will again try to spark a trade with the Jets once the new league year begins in March. The asking price may come down a bit due to Adams being disgruntled and entering the final year of his rookie deal in 2020, which lends to unlikely odds he’ll sign an extension with a team he feels betrayed by.” As we get closer to the 2020 NFL draft, perhaps the Cowboys (or any team for that matter) will covet the star safety and give them some compensation the team deems satisfactory. A proverbial elephant in the room is what might happen if Douglas picks up the phone to listen to any potential trade offers for Adams. We all remember what happened when the dirty laundry aired out around the trade deadline when these Adams to Cowboys rumors first surfaced. Douglas did the right thing, picking up the phone looking for any and all avenues to improve the team how he sees fit. Yes, Adams may have been hurt by these discussions, but as someone who has had family play in the NFL, he has to know that this is just part of the business. Since this dust-up, Douglas and Adams are said to have “mended fences.” As it currently stands, it looks like the Jets and Adams are currently in negotiations for a new contract. Nobody worth their salt would disagree that this would be a bad idea. Seeing where your star player stands with figures negotiating a new contract is typical, and the Jets are certainly not better off with Adams and what he brings to the table. For his part, Adams appears to know his worth. “I’ve proven that I’m the best safety doing it right now. I’m not trying to be paid just to be the highest-paid whatever. I’m trying to get paid for my status and what I’ve done. That’s what I’m about right now.” He is only slated to make $3.5 million in 2020 as it currently stands on his rookie deal. Adams deserves every dime he will get in a future contract. His services will not come cheap. Nobody is unappreciative of what Jamal Adams brings to the Jets and the New York area as a whole. Quite the contrary. However, he just did not come into the league in this current regime With Joe Douglas not going anywhere in the midst of a six-year deal, he may want to flip an extremely valuable asset to obtain equally valuable draft capital in order to expedite a rebuild and mold the team in his vision that much quicker.
  14. THis is what’s starting to sour me on football I agree with both of you, and you see it all the time. In the middle of the 4th quarter, I told my son that the refs were going to take over and the Chiefs would win this game. He laughed at me and said no way. He hasn't seen these fixed or rigged games as many times as I have. Well we all know what happened, the calls took the game away from the 9ers. Blatant calls, the Chiefs defense was offsides and no call, ref looking right at him. I am getting to the point now that it is getting real hard to watch these games. If they aren't fixed then I can't explain these refs miss real penalties, then throw a flag when there is no penalty. I don't want to hear they are only human, these mistakes are clearly blatant. It seems now that during the regular season, I usually just watch the Jets games, and I went to 2 of them. Well at least the league will send the 9ers an apology letter as to the incorrect or no calls. That should make them feel better.
  15. Its always about the Patriots,,,,the Seahawks throw the ball and give them the win, the best offense in the league is up 28-3 at halftime and doesn't score another point,,last year the Rams offense scores 3 points, now it is possible for Garrapolo to win a Super Bowl and possible MVP, which Kraft wouldn't care for, and all of a sudden all the calls go for KC? Think about it!
  16. Mahomes was bad against the Cheats last championship game...it is tougher when you play better teams.
  17. When probably a billion dollars is bet on a game, I have to be skepitble about the outcome, that offsides wasn't called is unbelievable....
  18. KC offsides on that 3rd down and no call....these refs are bullsh*t... I always think the worst when obvious calls aren't called.
  19. Mahomes reminds my a lot of Brady,,folds under pressure, and when hit first response is to cry to the refs.
  20. All I am saying is the cast around the QB determines what plays will be successful. Hopefully we fix the OL and then we can get more creative. Without talent, nothing you call will work in this league. I agree you have to call plays according to the players you have to work with, and I hope the play calling improves as the talent does...
  21. I would like to see Sam with the same talent that the Chiefs have, no matter who the coach, you are just a downer. Do you think Mahomes could win with last years Jets roster. What is sad is people who spew nonsense with no intelligence or knowledge of the game.
  22. These halftime shows are for the fans who go to and watch only one NFL game a year. I turn the channel till its over.
  23. What the hell is wrong with you? We will get the same satisfaction that they got by beating our sorry asses the last 50 years!
  24. So lets just throw the bank at him and be mediocre for another decade. We haven't won with him in 3 years, time to fix what needs to be fixed. I love him and he is a good player, but at that position and where this team is currently, the prudent thing to do is get what you can for him and move on!
