  1. Yes, I know... Two games ahead of the Jets-Ravens match-up, but I'm intrigued...

    I'm thinking...  Along with disciplined gap control, funneling corners and a spy on L.J. I *REALLY* want to see the Jets defense "Bring The Wood"

    I suggest inspirational and instructional film viewing for the entire defense.

    The best highlights of:

    D-Line: Charles Martin, Ndamukong Suh, Lyle Alzado

    LB's: Bill Romanowsky, Vontaze Burfict, James Harrison, Jack Lambert

    S. : Chuck Cecil, Jack Tatum

    CB: Dick Lane, Ronnie Lot

    I think that exercise would be beneficial....

    Tankathon has us taking an edge. Honestly is they get an impact player that’s all that matter regardless of position 


    Take the strong edge prospect if the obvious Left Tackle or Right Tackle is not there.  I want O-Line, but you should never "reach" for an outside offensive lineman no matter how badly it is needed.  The result will be a wasted pick

  3. O-Line, O-Line, O-Line.

    A top notch O-line can make an average QB, WR, RB look good.

    A good QB, WR, RB with a bad O-Line is wasted manpower and high hospital bills...

    However, that does not mean you take ANY O-Line prospect because you need O-Line talent.  Ask the Giants about Flowers. 

    With respect to the draft, a top tier LT, CB, and EDGE can be REALLY hard to find.  Sure, their are prospects, but those positions see a lot of disappointments.  IMHO, those are positions that you can and should pay big FA money to if a relatively young, healthy and proven player is available. 

    In the first round of the draft, you should never reach for a LT.  If there isn't a REALLY good prospect available, don't waste the pick on wishful thinking.  

    Offensive guards...  Unless there is a prospect like Quenton Nelson or DeCastro, don't get a guard in round one or two.  If there is one there for the taking, NEVER pass up on it.  That aside, you can get very good, versatile interior lineman in the later rounds providing your scouting is good.

    So, yeah... O-Line, O-Line, O-Line, but do it SMARTLY

  4. Good points regarding the commentary.  I don't think it is all that bad, but there have been better crews calling the games in the past. 

    For me, the thing that sort of messes up Monday Night Football is Thursday Night Football.  A football game on Monday night was a special event.  With the Thursday night game, it takes the "special" out of the Monday Night Games for me...

    The players don't like the Thursday night games and they detract from the "special" that Monday Night should be.  They should sh*t-can those Thursday night games.  If the league wants more money and more football, they should add expansion teams, not more weekday games or an 18 game season.  

    Add four AFC teams and four NFC teams.  All in markets that have the audience and $$$ for a team. 

    I think it is time for New Jersey to have a team.  Hmm... What would be a good name for a NJ team ???  One that reflects the culture and attitude of the Garden State.

    How about the "New Jersey Meat Heads".

    No one changed Gases plays, they eliminated the ones that Sam doesn't like.  An OC has 400 or so plays, Sam picked those that he was comfortable with.  I know it's fun to claim Gases plays sucked and Sam rewrote the playbook

    Right.  And Gase had to be prompted to do what should have been a matter of course for a legit HC/OC.  They also started doing a lot more man blocking up front as well.  That would suggest more measures were taken rather than Gase picking a few play cards out of his shoe-box and throwing them away

    Sam told his HC he wants to be blitzed up the middle and chuck the ball while being wrapped up by a Raider?

    This smells like a "Sam's great, Gase sucks" kinda take.

    Well, yeah... Gase's Payton Manning portable offense in a shoe-box was killing Sam and killing the season.  What they are running now is what fits Sam and what will work with a questionable offensive line.  It took Darnold leveling with Gase to move forward.  Want more proof ??? Watch any of the USC games from Darnold's last year there and then watch one of the last three Jet games.  Darnold gave Gase his old USC play book and it has been working.

    Ranked one slot above the Jets per football outsider, ranked 3rd vs PASS/ 25 vs RUN...  

    ours is flipped.............................................................................. ranked 21 vs PASS/ 2 vs RUN 

    You can run on the Ravens and get play action going for chunk plays and home run balls.  If Gase continues to run the same offense we have seen since his "talk" with Darnold, the Jets will be able to score on them.   As an ideal for the over all game plan, get two scores ahead ASAP and then start taking your time scoring more points.

    Ravens are going to eviscerate Jets. Not a knock on Jets. Harbaugh is one of the best coaches in nfl and LJ is the most disruptive player in history this season.

    Anything is possible.  Ya gotta play the games.   The Ravens are going to look super human against most teams, but their offensive game has a major pinch point.  A smart DC with a decent roster will  expose it.

    I know I'm going to get flamed and it is totally understandable given what we are seeing from the Ravens, but I'm fairly sure the Jets are the team with the DC and drive to beat them.

    Like I have been saying, gap control up front with a spy.  The average Ravens flankers can be held up by funneling and with contact.  A major bonus and game changer if a defender really puts the wood on LJ.  And a totally different situation for the Ravens if the Jets offense succeeds in getting a lead and forcing the Ravens to pay from behind. If we see complementary football from the Jets offense (and we should if Gase is actually the brain trust he is supposed to be) the Jets offense will go all in on getting a lead quickly.  The Ravens defense is not too swift, so it can be done...

    lol three wins against scrub teams and we this board goes from firing everyone to talking about play off scenarios and how easily we can stop the ravens.

    The Bills will be the hardest game left for the Jets, IMHO.  Of all the games the Ravens have left, I think the Jets have the best chance to beat them.  Not SF but the Jets. And yes, I know SF has the best d-line in the league.

    Definitely shouldn't blitz. It's going to be a chess match. So far, Lamar has answered the bill against BB and now against Wade Phillips. Those guys are excellent defensive minds as well. Lamar is a problem. 

    I'm excited to see how Gregg plays him. I think you have to play zone against him. Our DL has to win the point of attack. Otherwise we are toast. 

    Agree.  You don't blitz. You play gap control. It must be disciplined, stick with your assignment up front.  Don't abandon the inside gaps. The WR's the Ravens have are far from an elite corps.  Have the corners funnel them. Also.  You cant count on it, but I guarantee you, if a defender puts hard wood on LJ, it will cool him off.

    You have no idea what you're talking about. Sure. The Jets are best at stopping the run, but the Ravens add so many different looks and trickery to their running attack that it isn't even close. Ravens offense is NOTHING the Jets have ever seen and will never see it again until they face Baltimore again. It's TOTAL domination and they will completely dominate our defense in every sense of the word. The Jets simply have a Sh*t team. They do NOT and haven't had the talent to beat a team as physically dominating as the Ravens since like 2010.

    You said the magic word. Trickery...

    I'd say the ravens would be happy if adams was spying lamar, lamar would make him look so utterly silly.

    Not so sure.  Adams may not be the best guy to use as a spy, but I don't think it is due to LJ being faster.  A spy more often than not us usually a LB or SS that is assigned to a ball carrier.  Anticipation and taking the right angle is more important than speed for the spy,   

    The Ravens offense has a bit of the same effect on fans that the Pardee run and shoot offense. did.  Everyone is in awe and thinks it is impossible to stop.  And then it comes up against a DC that has the tools.

    You should stop speaking on this subject immediately.

    You were probably right up there with Ron Jaworski on Kaepernick.  "Kaepernick could be one of the greatest ever"

    Now your a LJ fanboy ???

    There is nothing cerebral or invincible about what the Ravens and LJ are doing. 

    Jets 34 - Ravens 17

  14. 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...
