  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 ???
  5. All things equal, I think I agree... BUT... I have a feeling Urban Meyer may be a total disaster. That may be the difference.
  6. 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 ???
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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 !
  10. Don't you want to at least wait to see how he looks on the field against a professional team before you crown him ???
  11. I always wanted a QB with Chad's attitude, Sanchez's athletic ability and O'Brien's arm. Looks like he's arrived
  12. As long as Wilson is not on the box cover, all will be well.
  13. and figure out that Rhule is a poor NFL HC.
  14. 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...
  15. If he's all about adjusting, my concern is unfounded.
  16. 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.
  17. I'll be happy if the Jets shape up into a respectable outfit for now. One step at a time. Going from a league leading joke to respectable is a big leap in itself...
  18. "play the Bobby Wagner/Fred Warner role." Play the role ??? That says it all. And as far as mixing coverage... Rex used as many different types of coverage as he did different types of blitz packages. Any way you spin it, I'm not excited to hear of any coach that looks to find new players to fit into old roles. Like Parcells would say. We are not picking up where we left off last year. Changing one starter changes the entire team. I hope this guy does not turn out to be a pseudo tuff-guy cement head that can't adapt
  19. I'm sensing a little danger here. I love the idea of a base 4-2-5 defense for "today's NFL", but I'm starting to get the idea that Saleh is a "devotee" of a specific system. I've had quite enough of that with Gase. I *hope* Saleh is not another cement-head out to jam square pegs into round holes in search of past glory. Rex's defense was formidable due to his ability to assess the moment and adjust for the moment at the moment. What he called his base defense was not all that important. There was also tremendous flexibility in all three levels of his defense. I had reservation
  20. All the pundits have AVT plugged in at LG, but he may very will be an ideal RT. Lots of options. If AVT is indeed the starter at LG, I see Van Roten as the RG.
  21. Great evaluation. Agree 100 %. Also agree that JD might have made a mistake with Anderson, but it signaled the beginning of new, sound way of building. A clear vision. Considering JD's work with the Eagles, I believed he had the tools to run a team and build intelligently. My question has always been how he will interact with Johnson. That is really the key to everything. Can he keep Johnson out of his way completely ??? If so, the Jets are going to be impressive.
  22. I hear Seattle values the safety position. Perhaps Joe Douglas can get two more number one draft picks for him.
