  1. Sancez didnt suck. He could suck, but he didn't suck all the time. His problem was always concentration. He had all the tools. His head was often not in the game. Almost like he was someplace else in his mind. Hence, all the head scratching interceptions and the butt-fumble. When his head was in the game, he was very good. Lots of late come backs due to some outstanding QB play. When there was the more intense level of pressure in the playoffs, it caused Sachez to concentrate more and he played some of his best football. In short, he didn't suck all together. He sucked often.
  2. Could be, yes. I still look at Wilson as a major crap shoot.
  3. I don't think so. If the Douglas regime does not make the playoffs in three years time, they are done. If Wilson flops, forget about playoffs for the next three years and forget about Douglas. Even if you have an 8-8 team for three years, Douglas will be written off as another "also-ran" Jets coach and run out of town.
  4. The CS will have to evaluate his ability to start during camp/preseason. If he looks up to it, he starts. If he looks shaky, bring in a vet, any vet available and sit Wilson for how ever long he has to sit until he is ready.
  5. Agree fully. CB is the obvious weak spot. BUT... QB is still the big mystery. No QB = No Team. Great QB = Competitive team regardless of a few soft spots in the roster. With Wilson, I think we'll know rather quickly. Any new QB will take some time to fully learn the position, but we'll have a lot to go on after a single game. Either he's going to be fantastic, or he wont be able to play in the NFL. I don't think there will be lingering questions for very long with this fellow.
  6. Everything and I do mean EVERYTHING hinges on Zac Wilson. His destiny is now entwined with that of Joe Douglas and Saleh. If Wilson crashed, do does the Joe Douglas era and subsequently Saleh as well. The other pieces of the roster are important of course and Douglas is indeed doing all that can be done to help Wilson succeed, but there is no guarantee that Wilson is going to work out. It it all riding on Wilson.
  7. How do you leave out Dan Alexander as interior lineman ??? Was B+ to A- every single game with both pass blocking and run blocking for 13 years and only missed one game his entire career. You cant find too many Jets at any position that contributed as much or was as dependable.
  8. I think the talk of durability issues with Wilson stems from the shoulder injury he had. The labrum on his trowing shoulder required surgery. The word is he had that injury since high school and he finally decided to get surgery on it in 2019. Seems to be just fine now. He did his best work at BYU after the surgery. Wilson is also built like a tank from the waist down. The Jets brass also seem to be taking his protection seriously as they added a prime piece to the offensive line with their second overall pick in this past draft.
  9. Could very well be. Not like Lawrence has a wind-up like Tim Tebow, but he does have a longer throwing motion than you would like to see. Wilson has a super compact, super quick delivery. He also seems to be able to throw the ball accurately from just about any position or any condition. There is also a lot more examples on tape of Wilson hitting covered receives vs. what the tape there is on Lawrence. If Wilson can do in the NFL what he did in college, he will be a very exciting player.
  10. I don't think it is his "body" that the pundits say is more NFL ready. More like his overall game. For that matter, Mac Jones was said to be even more NFL ready than Lawrence. Obviously, Mac Joes does not appear to have amazing physical abilities, but he played under center in a pro-set most of the time. I think watching Lawrence, Wilson, Fields, Jones and Lance progress is going to be the best part of the coming season. Though, Lance may not see the field until 2022.
  11. Interesting take. Do you see a flaw with Lawrence or do you expect his coaching staff wont put him in a good position to succeed ???
  12. All things equal, I think I agree... BUT... I have a feeling Urban Meyer may be a total disaster. That may be the difference.
  13. I'm still livid that the Jets blew their shot at Trevor Lawrence, but I must admit, Zac Wilson's abilities are intriguing. I especially like his very quick delivery as compared to the slower, longer throwing motion that Lawrence has. Anyone care to predict which QB will have the better rookie season ???
  14. I posted here (and there is a record) that Herbert would be the best QB in the draft. Actual GM's and armchair GM's get it right about half the time
  15. I was at the Jags playoff game in 1999. I remember it well. It was about 27 degrees our or so. I don't think I minded the cold that day as much as I did back at Shea in 1981 because the Jets actually won the Jags game. Like a wise man once said, "When you win, nothing hurts". Too bad Testaverde missed a wide open Richie Anderson in the end zone the following week. He had plenty of time to get the ball too him, but he rushed it and dirted the ball right in front of him. There was plenty of blame to go around for that loss, but that was the play I remember. Had the Jets won th
  16. Coldest Jets game I was ever at. December 27, 1981. Jets Bills Playoff game at Shea Stadium. I was 14 years old. Not just the low temp, but the wind chill. It took me 24 hours to thaw out after that game. And they lost, after a wild come back effort to boot !
  17. Don't you want to at least wait to see how he looks on the field against a professional team before you crown him ???
  18. I always wanted a QB with Chad's attitude, Sanchez's athletic ability and O'Brien's arm. Looks like he's arrived
  19. As long as Wilson is not on the box cover, all will be well.
  20. and figure out that Rhule is a poor NFL HC.
  21. Let me try to explain once again. Saleh seems to have a system that he's glued to. He was hot to emulate the Seattle defense. For me, that is a red flag. An elite mind never approaches the same complex task the same way with a different group of people at a different time. Beyond that, the band wagon always winds up finishing last with the accumulated weight of all the new riders. Every year is a new year. Every new group of players has a new dynamic. Hundreds of moving parts. I don't like "system" guys...
  22. If he's all about adjusting, my concern is unfounded.
  23. You mean like the 1998 Jets defense ??? A 43 defense ??? Parcells ran a 43 with the Jets that year because he didn't have the NT or LB's to run the 34. LB's were Mo Lewis, Pepper Johnson and Bryan Cox. That makes three... Not four.
