  1. Enjoy the Jets for what they should be to a fan.  Entertainment. Even if they lose, it is a good day.  You aren't at work :-)  Also good to remember.  If the Jets CS and players don't do their jobs well, you can still give yourself a big pat on the back knowing that your putting in a winning performance at your own job.  The Jets may be losers, but we are getting it right.

  2. The trolls are often the most entertaining part of sports message boards.  I wish they didn't get banned or censored.  I'm not offended by troll speak, profanity or un-pc language of any type.  The only occasion for a ban or further action should be threats of some kind.  Free speech is valuable...

    Then you've been a fan longer than I have. Im almost jealous that your faith in this team is still that strong. 

    It went downhill with me during that 2015 season. That's when I finally came to grips with what this organization is.


    They have had management problems since Sonny Werblin left.  Mr Hess was by all accounts a fantastic person and brilliant business man, but he really wasn't a football man.  It was up  and down until he handed the team off to the Tuna.  Woody came into the picture and it has been constant mismanagement. Bad management guarantees a lot of ups and downs but mostly downs.   Our hope now is that Douglas is left alone by Johnson to do his job.

    You see @THE BARON ? I really wasnt trying to be an ass, a hater or pessimistic for no reason brother. You're probably wondering how the hell I knew that the Jets would do exactly what I said above. Well when you're a Jets fan for decades and you've stopped being sucked in emotionally, you get to view things as they really are and you can see how the Jets constantly set us up for stuff like this. 


    You have to admit, I literally called this exactly the way it would ultimately happen...even down to the complete and utter blowout of the Raiders. Bro, the Jets WILL ALWAYS  find ways to be Jetsy.

    I watch them, but I stopped lying to myself years ago when it comes to this team. Nothing has changed. The Jets make the Johnson's money. There is no true competent effort to make this a winning franchise. 


    This is a bad football team, and has been for years, and years. Hopefully it changes with JD, but never get sucked in because of 2 wins against terrible teams. The Jets will find a way to completely break your heart. 


    The only person who seen what I was saying was @The Crusher





    I dig.  I have been a Jet fan for over 30 years.  I know where you are coming from.   Agree on JD.   I'm glad the Jets have him.  I'm sure you know what my concern is.  Will Johnson let him do his job ?

  5. Hmm... I'd call it a complete team loss. The CS and the players.   It seemed like a poor offensive game plan to begin with and failure to execute by several players on the offense.  Too many drive killing penalties and a few dropped balls that could have gotten the game under control if completed. The Jet defense can stop the run, but the are short on manpower to stop the pass.  Both on the edge to rush the QB and in the defensive backfield. Some questionable calls by the zebras, but the Jets did little to overcome.  Nothing tragic, here...  Just a team that needs more good football players and perhaps a better HC

  6. Yes, I know... Two games ahead of the Jets-Ravens match-up, but I'm intrigued...

    I'm thinking...  Along with disciplined gap control, funneling corners and a spy on L.J. I *REALLY* want to see the Jets defense "Bring The Wood"

    I suggest inspirational and instructional film viewing for the entire defense.

    The best highlights of:

    D-Line: Charles Martin, Ndamukong Suh, Lyle Alzado

    LB's: Bill Romanowsky, Vontaze Burfict, James Harrison, Jack Lambert

    S. : Chuck Cecil, Jack Tatum

    CB: Dick Lane, Ronnie Lot

    I think that exercise would be beneficial....

    Tankathon has us taking an edge. Honestly is they get an impact player that’s all that matter regardless of position 


    Take the strong edge prospect if the obvious Left Tackle or Right Tackle is not there.  I want O-Line, but you should never "reach" for an outside offensive lineman no matter how badly it is needed.  The result will be a wasted pick

  8. O-Line, O-Line, O-Line.

    A top notch O-line can make an average QB, WR, RB look good.

    A good QB, WR, RB with a bad O-Line is wasted manpower and high hospital bills...

    However, that does not mean you take ANY O-Line prospect because you need O-Line talent.  Ask the Giants about Flowers. 

    With respect to the draft, a top tier LT, CB, and EDGE can be REALLY hard to find.  Sure, their are prospects, but those positions see a lot of disappointments.  IMHO, those are positions that you can and should pay big FA money to if a relatively young, healthy and proven player is available. 

    In the first round of the draft, you should never reach for a LT.  If there isn't a REALLY good prospect available, don't waste the pick on wishful thinking.  

    Offensive guards...  Unless there is a prospect like Quenton Nelson or DeCastro, don't get a guard in round one or two.  If there is one there for the taking, NEVER pass up on it.  That aside, you can get very good, versatile interior lineman in the later rounds providing your scouting is good.

    So, yeah... O-Line, O-Line, O-Line, but do it SMARTLY

  9. Good points regarding the commentary.  I don't think it is all that bad, but there have been better crews calling the games in the past. 

    For me, the thing that sort of messes up Monday Night Football is Thursday Night Football.  A football game on Monday night was a special event.  With the Thursday night game, it takes the "special" out of the Monday Night Games for me...

    The players don't like the Thursday night games and they detract from the "special" that Monday Night should be.  They should sh*t-can those Thursday night games.  If the league wants more money and more football, they should add expansion teams, not more weekday games or an 18 game season.  

    Add four AFC teams and four NFC teams.  All in markets that have the audience and $$$ for a team. 

    I think it is time for New Jersey to have a team.  Hmm... What would be a good name for a NJ team ???  One that reflects the culture and attitude of the Garden State.

    How about the "New Jersey Meat Heads".

    No one changed Gases plays, they eliminated the ones that Sam doesn't like.  An OC has 400 or so plays, Sam picked those that he was comfortable with.  I know it's fun to claim Gases plays sucked and Sam rewrote the playbook

    Right.  And Gase had to be prompted to do what should have been a matter of course for a legit HC/OC.  They also started doing a lot more man blocking up front as well.  That would suggest more measures were taken rather than Gase picking a few play cards out of his shoe-box and throwing them away

    Sam told his HC he wants to be blitzed up the middle and chuck the ball while being wrapped up by a Raider?

    This smells like a "Sam's great, Gase sucks" kinda take.

    Well, yeah... Gase's Payton Manning portable offense in a shoe-box was killing Sam and killing the season.  What they are running now is what fits Sam and what will work with a questionable offensive line.  It took Darnold leveling with Gase to move forward.  Want more proof ??? Watch any of the USC games from Darnold's last year there and then watch one of the last three Jet games.  Darnold gave Gase his old USC play book and it has been working.

    Ranked one slot above the Jets per football outsider, ranked 3rd vs PASS/ 25 vs RUN...  

    ours is flipped.............................................................................. ranked 21 vs PASS/ 2 vs RUN 

    You can run on the Ravens and get play action going for chunk plays and home run balls.  If Gase continues to run the same offense we have seen since his "talk" with Darnold, the Jets will be able to score on them.   As an ideal for the over all game plan, get two scores ahead ASAP and then start taking your time scoring more points.

    Ravens are going to eviscerate Jets. Not a knock on Jets. Harbaugh is one of the best coaches in nfl and LJ is the most disruptive player in history this season.

    Anything is possible.  Ya gotta play the games.   The Ravens are going to look super human against most teams, but their offensive game has a major pinch point.  A smart DC with a decent roster will  expose it.

    I know I'm going to get flamed and it is totally understandable given what we are seeing from the Ravens, but I'm fairly sure the Jets are the team with the DC and drive to beat them.

    Like I have been saying, gap control up front with a spy.  The average Ravens flankers can be held up by funneling and with contact.  A major bonus and game changer if a defender really puts the wood on LJ.  And a totally different situation for the Ravens if the Jets offense succeeds in getting a lead and forcing the Ravens to pay from behind. If we see complementary football from the Jets offense (and we should if Gase is actually the brain trust he is supposed to be) the Jets offense will go all in on getting a lead quickly.  The Ravens defense is not too swift, so it can be done...

    lol three wins against scrub teams and we this board goes from firing everyone to talking about play off scenarios and how easily we can stop the ravens.

    The Bills will be the hardest game left for the Jets, IMHO.  Of all the games the Ravens have left, I think the Jets have the best chance to beat them.  Not SF but the Jets. And yes, I know SF has the best d-line in the league.

    Definitely shouldn't blitz. It's going to be a chess match. So far, Lamar has answered the bill against BB and now against Wade Phillips. Those guys are excellent defensive minds as well. Lamar is a problem. 

    I'm excited to see how Gregg plays him. I think you have to play zone against him. Our DL has to win the point of attack. Otherwise we are toast. 

    Agree.  You don't blitz. You play gap control. It must be disciplined, stick with your assignment up front.  Don't abandon the inside gaps. The WR's the Ravens have are far from an elite corps.  Have the corners funnel them. Also.  You cant count on it, but I guarantee you, if a defender puts hard wood on LJ, it will cool him off.

    You have no idea what you're talking about. Sure. The Jets are best at stopping the run, but the Ravens add so many different looks and trickery to their running attack that it isn't even close. Ravens offense is NOTHING the Jets have ever seen and will never see it again until they face Baltimore again. It's TOTAL domination and they will completely dominate our defense in every sense of the word. The Jets simply have a Sh*t team. They do NOT and haven't had the talent to beat a team as physically dominating as the Ravens since like 2010.

    You said the magic word. Trickery...
