  1. I'm watching the Ravens / Rams game. Thinking the same thing I did last time I watched the Ravens. Their offense is nothing special and Lamar is nothing either new or indefensible. For the DC with the proper brain power (Greg Williams), the Raven's offense is going to be easy meat. Disciplined gap control, funnel the WR's outside and put a spy on Lamar. Perhaps Adams.
  2. What is the big deal ??? This is just smack talk. No crime is being done, no violence, no drugs, no torture of dogs, etc. No need to apply corporate office decorum to these dudes... Leave 'em play...
  3. The next two games will be another "LITMUS" test for the Jets. On paper, the Jets should win convincingly over the Bengals and the Dolphins. Good coaching will keep them focused, working hard and playing as motivated professionals. Bad coaching will see them float into the clouds and becoming delusional resulting in an ass kicking by an inferior team and the entire fan base crashing to earth before the anticipated Ravens game... Are these the "Same Old Jets" We shall see...
  4. He should be paid like a number 1 receiver for sure, but not an elite number one. He is more than a one trick pony. He can run the shallow stuff too. His best attribute, I think is the eyes he has in the back of his head. Uncanny adjustment to the ball. The fun factor is there too. I was at the game and fans were having a ball when he jumped into the crowd. He's a natural Jet. Also remember that he is durable. He's not a Julio Jones level guy, but he's not fools gold. He's a very nice player. If Douglas does not make a strong effort to keep Anderson and Jamal Adams, I will be disap
  5. Sort of yeah, but I see Sam as more of a California version of Brett Favre. One that will hopefully throw less interceptions and be more discrete with his cell phone images
  6. I *REALLY* hope he stays. Great coach with respect to defensive design and also very well liked by the players. So hard to find that combo. Both task oriented and relationship oriented. He instills a winning personality in the X's and O's
  7. I think Sam gave Gase his old USC play book and they made a new offense with it...
  8. The team that we saw out there today wasn't really the Jets. It was the "pod" Jets. Looks like the Jets, sounds like them... Even smells like the Jets, but it was an imitation...
  9. CB could be half way there if Austin continues to work out. S. No problems there as long as they don't trade Jamal WR position is not a ghost town LB position far from shabby. Need that edge guy. O-Line. UG !!!! One good off season could turn the roster into a playoff team
  10. Here is somewhat of a revelation.... A base 34 defense often acts like a 43 or "46" for that matter (Rex Ryan). The compelling factor that differentiates the two is not the size, shape and speed of the d-line guys. It is the flexibility you are afforded with your schemes, alignments, formations, coverage at the second level and so on. It gives the DC options to change-up on the fly and disguise what is coming next. Suggesting that a 34 defense is holding QW back from being noticeably affective is simply not believable. These guys are football players, not aircraft parts...
  11. Thus far, Gase has only done one thing I know of that is worth of any sort of praise. He listened to Darnold's input and made changes in the offense. So what we've got here is a HC that needs to be schooled by his second year QB.
  12. Anyone know exactly what type of "groin" injury C.J. Mosley has ??? I've seen players listed with "groin" injuries who didn't miss any game time, some that missed a game and some that missed several games. This is the only groin injury that I can remember that has lingered so long without any firm info about a return date. The word now is that he will undergo surgery if there is no improvement in the next week. What type of injury is this ??? A torn muscle or a muscle that detached from the bone ??? What would the surgery do ??? It must be a total bitch having such an injury
  13. Agree. Where NFL type moneys are on the line, no one should expect anything judicious from the league or any other corporate entity. Emotions running high and opinions aplenty in the CK media phenomenon. Onlookers believing the central issues are social justice and patriotism. The actual impetus for the league is economic. Many people in the NFL from the highest levels of management on down rightfully agree that there are serious social justice issues that need to be worked out, but few of those people wanted to see it aired out in *THEIR WORKPLACE*. Imagine if any of us took politica
  14. Shell was in there last week. I don't thing Edoga will make it on the outside. They should try Edoga out on the interior and see if he can be developed that way.
  15. Sacks not the big expectation for an interior defensive lineman. When Suh and Sapp first took the field they were clearly aggressive and very disruptive. I thought Suh was trying to dismember people.
  16. I dig. It always helps to have good feet. Man or zone.
  17. Feet are always good to have. A man blocking scheme usually calls for more athletic guys up front. In "zone", it works pretty much they way it sounds. A given lineman has a zone assignment and he blocks who ever comes into his zone. In "man" the lineman's assignment is a specific guy. He has to take on that defender even if he twists/shifts/stunts so he'll have to do more moving around. Though, in either a man or zone blocking scheme, you see some of both. There are a few players that come to mind that were drafted with the expectation of playing OT and they did poorly, BUT they m
  18. Who else was on that Ravens defense ??? Who's on the Jets defense ??? What role did Ed Reed play in that defense ??? What role does Adams play ??? Who was the FS and who was the SS ??? Where do you have a chance to freelance and grab ints ??? How many sacks did Ed have in his first two years ??? How many tackles ??? I'd venture to say that you are complicating the obvious and trivializing the momentous...
  19. Piss and the Jets ??? Brings me all the way back to Shae Stadium. My father started taking me to games back in 1980 when I was just a pup. Our tickets were in the mezzanines. Back then at Shae, it was a much different experience from being at MetLife Stadium. At Shae circa 1980, there were drunks all over the stadium. Fights would be breaking out everywhere. There were guys that looked like Rocky's pal Pauley. They all had paper bags with a bottle of booze to sip on, and they all yelled out the same thing at the players.... "YOU BUM !!!! YOU BUM !!!" At a game in December, I even saw
  20. Warren Sapp. 22 y/o at draft N. Suh 23 y/o at draft Newly drafted defensive lineman can and should make an immediate impact if they are all that they were cracked up to be.
  21. There is an old saying... "Patriotism is the last refuge for a scoundrel". Time for the 2019 version. "Victim identity is the last refuge for a scoundrel"
  22. + Dwayne Robertson ("bowling ball covered in razor blades" W, Sapp) * Kenrick Ellis (drafted with knowledge of off the field legal issues none the less)
  23. Thus far, I'm calling him a bust. I don't see a single thing from him to suggest he will be a key player. Mike DeVito and Sione Pouha were more effective. I don't see quickness, explosiveness and absolutely don't see any power.
  24. Adams is a game changer. That is a player you keep and build around. Forget the nonsense about only QB and offensive skill positions "win games". CB's don't win games for you ??? Revis, Prime Time LB's don't win games for you ??? LT, Ray Lewis Safeties don't win games for you ??? Ed Reed. Jamal Adams Special players win games for you at any position... Greg Williams has done a masterful job with what he has to work with. Both tactically and keeping the players focused and on track.
  25. Edoga is a disaster area on the outside. No feet. They should try him out on the interior.
