    That statement would be true if you started watching the Jets like 2 weeks ago... 

    The last decade has been a debacle, and both Idzik and Mac are much more prominent on the 'worst GM in jets history" list.

    idzik got canned at the point where it looked like he was going to be a disaster.  Mr. Coffee *was* a disaster.  Joe Douglas has not been fired yet, but his results prove he's a bigger disaster than Mr. Coffee and or Idzik.

  2. I just had a thought. 

    If the NFL didn't have a hard cap and the Jets could afford to spend more than any other team given the NY media market...


    If the owner's hand picked GM and the GM's hand picked HC were still running things...

    The would still suck.

    It was clear as day Saleh had no use for the guy before the trade deadline and there was interest from other teams - why wasn't he traded?

    The GM is clueless...

    Zack is NOT not the guy



    I know this post is not thoughtful but let's call it what it is

    Agree.   But neither is the owner.  And his GM and his GM's QB pick and his GM's HC pick.  None of them are "the guy"

    It all starts at the top.

    Same owner = Same Bad results

    Berrios is not a bad player. I respect him

    Agree fully.  Berrios gives 100 %.  He wants to play football and it shows.   Oddly enough, his "patron" was Gase.  No Gase, probably no Berrios.  Not exactly the same, but reminds me a bit of Kotite and Wayne Chrebet.  No Kotite, no Chrebet.

    And Keyshawn Johnson didnt seem to think that "flashlight" Chrebet belonged on the same roster with "stars" like himself. 

    I'll take a worker/player with good skills and big-time drive over a fancy diva any day.

    NY Jets Injury Report

    Robert Saleh spoke to the media on Wednesday and gave injury updates for the NY Jets Roster.  An interesting exchange took place when Saleh was asked about Mekhi Becton returning. More on that below, first here is the injury update.

    Elijah Moore is dealing with a quad, he’s day-to-day. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, he’s day-to-day. Tevin Coleman and Michael Carter II are in the concussion protocol. Trevon Wesco is day-to-day with an ankle. Ryan Griffin is day-to-day with an ankle. (Sheldon) is day-to-day with a knee. None of them are practicing today.

    Keelan Cole is back off the COVID list and is practicing.

    Mike White is still going through the return to play as it pertains to COVID. Kind of similar to (Denzel) Mims, because had two weeks, there’s a process that they have to go through to get him back. So, we’re working through that.

    How serious is Elijah’s injury? Is that related to the injury he suffered in training camp?

    We’ll know more as the week goes on. I’m still hopeful that he’ll be able to make it Sunday. No, it came on really late, so I didn’t have any detail on Monday. Didn’t really get a hold of it until really Tuesday.

    Mekhi Becton Update

    No update yet. It’s really the same. He hasn’t had a setback or anything, just everyone is different in terms of how they heal and all that stuff. So, hopefully we can get something going soon, but it’s all the same.

    Was he supposed to be on the field, like field work?

    He’s still doing field work.

    Everyone is different and some people take a little longer, but this was originally a four-to-six recovery, then went four-to-eight. We’re now about a month past that eight-week timetable, is it alarming at all that he’s not…?

    No, because his was different. You’re right, it was different in terms of, if you guys remember there was that talk of whether or not there was going to be surgery to shut it down, too. So, his was a little bit different than any other one. Always felt like it was going to be more, personally, just because the way it was spoken was different than (Conor) McDermott’s. So, I’m not at all surprised or discouraged. He’s going to heal, he’ll be back, and he’ll be fine.

    Are you still think he’ll be back this season?

    Hopefully, yeah, I’m still hopeful.

    How do you balance that with only five games left? When does it become too late than it’s worth getting him out there on the field? 

    No, I don’t think it’s ever too late. I think he’s got a desire to play for his teammates, play for his family and all that. So, whether it’s one game, two games, I don’t think it really matters to him, he just wants to get back on the field.

    Where would he play if he came back?

    I’ll speculate on that one later.

    With Mekhi though, is there a point where you have to say like, “Okay, if he’s not back by here, we’re just going to shut it down?”

    No, I’m not ready to even think about that one yet

    NY Jets Injury Report

    The post Saleh Thinks Becton Will Return; Won’t Speculate On His Position appeared first on JetNation.com (NY Jets Blog & Forum).

    If they pull Fant and stick Becton in to mess up the line just to make JD's draft pick significant, it will confirm that amateur hour is in full swing in the Jets front office.

    Becton can perhaps play inside or better yet, used to get some trade value for the 2022 draft.  It was a bad pick.

    After Schmitt, Fields Sweeney, Mawae, Mangold... You need another elite center to continue the line.  Grab him. 

    I want to add here.  He is a super solid character guy, is a leader and the brains of the operation.  He'll certainly be calling the signals for the line wherever he winds up going.  That quality of player at that position is invaluable.  Worth all 391 lbs in gold.  This would be a Mangini pick.  I hope it is a JD pick too.

    Don't mess this one up, Joe.

    If you get the chance, make the pick even if it has to be in the top five.

    I don't know what the hell happened to Mims this season, but with Davis out and the playoffs officially out of the question, Saleh and his staff need to give Mims as many reps as possible. They may hate him, but the guy was a second round pick for a reason and he was pretty good as a rookie. You have to see what you have in him. 

    There has to be a serious personality or cognitive /  learning issue there with Mims.  

    What is odd to me is that such a glaring issue should have been apparent before they made the purchase.  They may very well have not done all their homework on Mims.  He was there for the taking and they went with it not knowing he was coming with issues.  Probably minimal pre draft investigation and no interview. 

    What else could be the reason ??? Suggest a plot...

    Don’t know why this is so hard.  Fant is playing at a Pro Bowl level at a premium position , and we have him locked up for another year.  We’re seeing D’Brick level play and dependability.    It’s also conceivable at his age and lack of miles that he is a 5 year replacement. 

    Becton is a world class road grading tackle - Hwy 77 - who sometimes struggles with pass protection.  With consistency and conditioning he could easily be tops in the NFL at RT in a scheme that emphasizes zone blocking and a strong run game.  Get or draft an all pro center, move Connor to RG and rotate / compete with LDT, and you have a completed rebuild in the trenches that would be one of the best in the NFL and completely in the right scheme for our talent.  

    But we will probably f up this no-brainer because….  Jets.

    Yes.  Brick level pass blocking WITH good run blocking to boot.  Trade Big Ticket.  Get him in a game or two.  Make him look good.  Put him on the trading block.

    Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are both sucking during their rookie year...wow!

    It is situational for both of them.  And it is situational for Mac Jones as well

    If Wilson and or Lawrence was with the Pats, they would both be looking a lot better.  

    If Mac Jones was with the Jets or Jags, he'd be a disaster.  Both Wilson and Lawrence have much stronger physical skill sets than Mac Jones.  

    Jones is a system cog in a *VERY* good system.

    Wilson and Lawrence are both potentially excellent professional QB's that went to respective graveyards.

    11 downvotes for this. I was -- and remain at the time of this writing -- the only upvote. Let's change that in a major way.

    Good sir, take a bow.

    Thank you for the reference. MUCH appreciated.  I wish it didn't play out the way we both expected, but these are the Jets.

    "Defensive tackle Quinnen Williams is one of the Jets’ top players. It is hard to debate that..."

    Exactly why we are, once again, heading deeper into the ditch.   For some odd reason, this franchise continues to accept mediocrity-minus as its gold standard.  

    The "some odd reason" you refer to sits at the very top of the organization.  

    There was sound reasoning involved when Belichick wrote his resignation on a used table napkin before leaving town on a rocket sled after he got a sample of what the new ownership was all about. 

    Consider all the NFL franchises that are usual contenders.  Consider the franchises that are always "improving" but never improved.  Then, look up.

    Being negative is no more objective than being positive when talking about an NFL player after 6 games. 

    Keep putting words in my mouth, not once have I said anything other than wilson is talented needs time to develop. 


    VERY true... And there does not seem to be a good "teacher" on hand.  Given that alone, he may never develop.  That is not troll nonsense.  It is a pragmatic appraisal given what we have seen and continue to see

    Imagine picking 4-5 in this draft tho

    If Mangini and co were running the draft I'd be excited.  We'd get another Mangold, Brick, David Harris, Revis, etc. With JD... Well.  I'd wager both picks will be out of the league when their rookie contracts are up

  15. Ugh... The Patriots are getting better.  The Jets.... Well.  They are the Jets.

    As far as sustained success on the filed.  Forget about it and you'll feel a lot better.

    You can still be a fan and enjoy the games.  Outstanding individual performances are there to see and there are always exciting plays here and there.  I have not had tickets since 2014, but you can also have a nice time at the stadium even if they lose every single home game.  Keep expectations at zero for on-filed performance and figure on the tailgate being the apex of the day.   Also very entertaining to ignore the game state and watch a particular player or unit for a good spell.  Watching the offensive and defensive with binoculars can be super entertaining.
