  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.

    They have to win the next two weeks and keep this good feeling going. 

    Losing to the Bengals or getting swept by the Dolphins will be devastating. 

    Imagine the good feeling going into the Baltimore game on a five game winning streak?

    It'll be a lot of fun....

    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... 

     

  3. 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 disappointed.  You don't want to collect players, you want to build a team...

    Aaron Rogers!

    Throwing darts on the run...

    Lobbing it over defenders with great touch...

    Throwing while moving to the left...

    Throwing while moving to the right...

    Sliding to evade pressure...

    Throwing while jumping or off a hop...

    All with great accuracy...

    Qb sneaking for TD's...

    Superiorly gifted athletes...

    And the best part, Darnold is 12 years younger than Rogers...

     

    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 :-)

    I firmly believe that Sam Darnold has rescued Adam Gase. Not only that, I believe that it will not be very long until Sam is calling his own plays and controlling the offense himself. The difference in what we are seeing pre and post meeting with Gase is remarkable and shows Sam's football IQ is really high.

    Getting re-excited for the future. It took a while maybe for them to find the right player combinations and to learn the new systems. F**k draft position, winning is much more fun. Today was awesome, not to have to worry for one second. Priceless LOL.  

    I think Sam gave Gase his old USC play book and they made a new offense with it...

    The team in green and white that showed up today was not the Jets. It was a team that actually functioned in all facets of the game on a consistent basis. I think the real Jets were trapped deliberately in the locker room so that the practice squad could play today's game.

    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...

    Yes that makes 3 positions that are set lol.

    QB

    DL

    TE

    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

  8. 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... 

    Klecko made the Pro Bowl at DE, DT and NT.

    Before Kris Jenkins came to play NT for Rex, he was tearing it up in a base 43

  9. 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 :(

    Imagine, at this point, thinking that Roger Goodell’s NFL is trustworthy in any matter of jurisprudence.

    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 political pamphlets into our office of place of business and we started handing them out to coworkers and customers.  Even if the owners/managers of our respective companies agreed passionately with our position and or social statement, they would be mortified that we were turning their livelihood into a conflagration.   Our asses would be $hit-canned immediately.

    The league does not want to black list and banish CK because of his views.  The powerbrokers in the league and the owners are furious that the smooth flow of income was interrupted.

    As for CK.  His activism against social justice should be applauded, but I believe he chose the wrong forum as a conduit to the public.  Not because it was the NFL.  He did it in peoples *WORKPLACE* and with methods that were sure to alienate those who would have preferred to be a supporter.

    The guy is not bad. I think probably the 2nd or 3rd best ol. Why does google eyes sit him? Edoga SUCKS!

    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.

    Sapp 1995 rookie stats-  Total - 3 sacks

    1995 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16 -- -- -- 3.0 0 0 1 1 5 5.0

    5T

    Suh 2010 rookie stats-  Total - 10 sacks

    2010 Detroit Lions 16 66 49 17 10.0 0 3 1 0 20 20.0 20

    The only year Suh had double digit sacks in his career was his rookie season.

    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.

    I know what zone blocking is. I'm saying he can't just engage his big body, and latch onto someone and not let go. Like Carpenter was able to do when he was manning up on someone, but was useless in zone blocking before and after. My point was that he needs feet more if he's got to play an area and react more to a pass rusher coming into his area. No feet = someone runs right by him, and that goes for blocking the edge or inside. In other words, it may fix nothing. 

    I dig.  It always helps to have good feet.  Man or zone.

    How much worse can he be there, right? Except if the goal is going to be lots of zone blocking he kind of needs feet on the inside as well, no?

    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 moved inside and made a good contribution.

    Most everyone remembers Tony Mandarich.  He is seen as one of the biggest busts of all time, but he played for 8+ years and he did a decent job when he moved inside.  

    The Raiders also drafted the 6' 7" Robert Gallery to play on the outside.  He didn't do too well there, but he made a decent go of it when they moved him inside...

    you've joined separate universes.

    reed got the ball.

    reed had 21 int in his 1st 3 years.

    jamowf has 2. TWO!!!

    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...

    We gotta piss in a cup or something to get thru the gates on Sunday? What's this all about?  I'm with Le'Veon....no more tests!

    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 two drunken guys dressed as Santa Claus having a fist fight over who was the real Santa...  And PISS... Yes... PISS.  If you went out on the concourse in the mezzanines during half time, you had to make sure you didn't get too close to the outside wall.  There were drunks that would PISS off of the upper deck.  You'd get splashed by the streams of PISS that would be cascading down. I wont even go into what the bathrooms were like...

    How's that for a litmus test ???

    Amazing  - this kid is only 21 years old - Aaron Donald had 2 years on him when he was drafted in 2014 - 13th - so are the 12 other teams fans who passed on him crying the blues like this fan base?

    You don't draft a 21 yo kid and expect to be able to push around NFL lineman right overnight.  Geesh, just let the kid grow up a little with experience  and get into the weight room.

    I would like anyone to recall a DT drafted so young make it into the pro-bowl their 1st year, like it seems this negative fan base is wanting. 

    Go ahead, I'm waiting.....

    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.

    So....3 days ago, Mike's Garrett sorrowfully apologizes for his behavior, apologized to the league, his team, Mason Rydolph, Baby Jesus, Gandhi, and Yoda Baby from the Mandalorian.  Says nothing about racism. 

     

    Yesterday(?) Miles Garrett goes to NYC with his family, agent, lawyer, attorneys, and Pastor to appeal the suspension on grounds that the NFLPA CBA doesn't allow for suspensions of undetermined length. Nobody in his party mentions any racism, slurs, or naughty words 

    NFL tells Miles Garrett that his behavior was unacceptable  uncivilized, and they will give him a specific term of suspension.

     

    RACISM!!!!

     

    LOL.  2019 in a nutshell. 

     

    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"

    You made my point, we have three good DT’s on this team now, even after trading Leonard Williams, and not counting QW.

    Why the hell draft him:-

    Lessons learnt Zero:-

    Mo Wilkerson.

    Quentin Coples.

    Sheldon Richardson.

    Leonard Williams.

    Quinnen Williams. (Really..)

    Last Edge Rusher Drafted by the Jets Bryan Thomas (2002!).

    Last good one John Abraham (2000!).

    + Dwayne Robertson ("bowling ball covered in razor blades" W, Sapp)

    * Kenrick Ellis (drafted with knowledge of off the field legal issues none the less)

    In a way even the better/best ones in this group are inflated because they're all subpar. 

    Take a particular play where Beachum would have given up a sack after 2.8 seconds. Except he had the benefit, on that play, of Kalil giving up a sack - or causing Darnold to get flushed out wide right - after just 1.5 seconds. In terms of getting graded on that play, Beachum comes out with a better (if not an outright good/perfect) grade not because he did or would have done well, but rather because someone else was even worse. He didn't give up QB pressure on that play (let alone an outright sack). 

    When you have a couple of train wrecks like Kalil & Edoga, it indirectly benefits the PFF grades of everyone else on the line not named Kalil or Edoga. Put Beachum on a line with 4 good starters and his grade would necessarily drop even if his level of play is unchanged. 

    Edoga is a disaster area on the outside.  No feet.  They should try him out on the interior.
