  1. GM with three year to acquire manpower for the most important unit on any team. The offensive line. His results. Horrendous.
  2. New regime ? How long has the offensive line guru had to acquire manpower ??? Do you see who is on the line and how they are playing ? Give your brain a chance.
  3. Agree with many points but... C. Johnson hired JD on the advise of Gase. JD's lack of performance goes back to Johnson. And I'm sure that Chris had discussion with Woody regarding both the Gase hire and the Douglas hire. Remember, the phone is only a second away. They conferred about it and agreed on it. As far as Saleh. Yes, yes and YES. He's not to blame, BUT he is part of the mess now. If JD goes, then you have a HC in Saleh without a GM. Remember Rex without Tanny ??? You got Idzik who was working to sabotage his one HC in order to get rid of him. JD's drafting
  4. I'd much rather have a winning team that is fun to watch.
  5. Losing the first game had nothing to do with it. Watching the offensive line (and the GM is supposed to be the guy for that) is what set me off. They way they played was simply not defensible. It has much less to to do about "needing time to gel" and far more to do with the quality of the manpower. And if you go back and look at my posts leading up to the 2020 draft, you'll see I felt the Jets must draft an offensive line player, but should stay clear of Becton. If the line plays better as the season goes on, I'll own up to it, but they wont. Not by much at least.
  6. Let me focus on a point that I think is compelling. I didn't blame Woody for the Rex hire. I thought it was a great hire and I still love Rex. He's in the top three of all time Jet coaches, IMHO. What the problem was is this. Woody didn't realize that Rex although being a good game coach and wonderful player's coach and fan's coach and media coach, was also an emotional reactionary. Instead of keeping Rex on the field and away from the front office, Woody gave Rex a free hand to despoil the roster. Tanny was a push over and Rex was allowed to wreck his own tenure. A smart owner
  7. Given the wonderful offensive line Joe Douglas has assembled, TL would be just as bad off with the Jets as he would with the Jags, What I saw from the Joe Douglas offensive line yesterday was every bit as bad as the days of Anthony Cement / Adrian Clarke offensive line. HE;s has three years and they still have the worst line in the NFL.
  8. If you draft the way Mangini and Tanny did and you use FA the way Mangini and Tanny did, you have an elite offensive line in a year. Brick, Faneca, Mangold, Moore, Woody. If you draft and use FA the way JD has, you never fix the line. You just kill your new 1st round QB.
  9. How did you rate the offensive line that JD put in front of Wilson ?
  10. All points well taken. I did't directly blame Saleh. His defense was the only thing that performed better than I expected. And with a boatload of new players to boot. But. I repeat. Same owner and same results. Or, to be fair at this point, same owner same apparent results. I stand by it.
  11. no way did i think the jets were any sort of a sleeper or dark horse team. i had hoped that i would at least see progress or signs that sustained success was a future possibility. the condition and play of the offensive line convinced me that nothing is improving. jd had two seasons to build a line and even more motive to do so considering a rookie qb. What i saw yesterday from that offensive line was horrendous. Bad as a unit, bad as individual play as well. And his big ticket draft pick is out again as are many of his other players.
  12. Both JD and Saleh are involved here. And the loss was not the issue. I predicted 5 losses in the first 6 games. What is disturbing here is the offensive line they collectively fielded to put in front of a rookie qb. And from a GM that comes advertised as one who gives particular attention to the offensive line. The results I saw suggest incompetence. Did i disturb your fanboy sensibilities ???
  13. clearly, you don't have any understanding of administration within a large or complex organization.
  14. you should be censured for this response. at the very least, you should be put to bed without any supper.
  15. i felt the same way you did. but. take a look at jd's drafts and his fa players. not looking good. did you see that offensive line yesterday. as a unit it was horrible. as far as individual play on the offensive line, it looked just as bad. other teams/gms have proven you can build a line in a single off season. jds line sucks. no improvement over two off seasons. you almost had a dead QB yesterday. Did you see Wilson's head bounce off the turf ???
  16. not patient ? what team have you been watching and for how long ??? with respect to the current regime. how many of jd's players are on the field and contributing ??? how many turned out to be excellent players ???
  17. hate has nothing to do with it. this is all about results.
  18. As usual, there was optimism regarding the new regime including, JD, Saleh and Wilson. But... My famous last words seem to hold up pretty well as usual. Same Owner (Johnson) = Same General Results. What else has been common through Idzik, Mr. Coffee, Boles, Gase and now Mac & Saleh ???
  19. And what about this weight he is carrying around ??? Not good for the knees, I'm sure.
  20. “I'd rather have lucky generals than good ones.” Napoleon Bonaparte As far as his drafting, JD has been a loser. That has little to do with reasoning and everything to do with being "it"
  21. Just like another esteemed former Jet OC. Little Schotty. He got the gig because Woody wanted to hob-nob with big Schotty. That's now a nobody feels big about themselves. Invite the big names to their cocktail party.
  22. If they don't change the offence in a way that accounts for the horrific play on on the offensive line, it wont be a sprint or a marathon for Wilson. It will be a funeral. Go two TE or two men in the backfield. Something that gives redundancy in the protection/blocking scheme.
  23. If he is back inside of 6 games, he'll be called an iron man.
