    Sounds kind of prejudiced. You know, kinda the same as being racist.

    One who is prejudiced may or may not also be racist.  They are two different things.  The word "racist" is often used incorrectly.

    A racist is a person who believes *SPECIFICALLY* that genetics are in play with respect to the qualities of what they define as different "racial" groups.  When I say qualities, I mean intelligence, behavioral tendencies and physical abilities.  

    You can be prejudiced and not be a convinced racist.  You can use street language and not be a convinced racist.  You can be completely PC in your speech but yet, still be a convinced racist.

    A non-racist does not believe there are different sets of qualities as listed above.  They see one single race across many cultures and political systems. All with the same defects and gifts.

    Adam Silver essentially banned Donald Sterling from the league. Could you see Roger acting-or would it take an insane amount of public pressure? 

    I just don’t want to see some BS $500,000 fine for a guy who is worth billions.

    So what say you? 

    In the case of the recent allegations... No.  There was nothing specific.  Just hearsay.   However, Woody is from that old generation.  I'm sure he has some old school ignorance ingrained in his persona.  I believe that there is some smoke there even though we can't see the fire.  Yet.

  3. If you really want to stick-it to Jamal, giving him what he wants (a trade) is not the way to do it.

    Publicly offer him a bump (and he wont accept)

    Then, wave the contract in his face...

    I'm sorry you are not happy with your contract or our latest offer to further compensate you for your outstanding performance.   We know you are a true professional and that you will use all your powers and all your skills on the field the next two seasons regardless.  We'd also like to have your services well beyond those two years.

    Wave contact in his face... 

    Good luck out there, son...

    Why did Darnold where a flak jacket if there was no danger to his spleen?

    he could have played without one.  im sure they felt every bit of precaution was good regardless.  it may also have made him feel safer, hence play with a clear head.

    Because we all think a QB with mono, symptoms being body aches and lethargy, along with a risk of an oversized spleen rupturing, should be moved around a pocket, for what reason?  I know its become cliche to just move him around and for some unknown reason decide Darnold cant pass in the pocket.  Since when?  

    Its like how didn't we run the offense?  And it was bad so all we had to do was something different.  Who cares that we weren't constructed that way.  

    When Darnold returned from mono, he was symptom free and there was no danger to his spleen.  This came from doctors. Some of the best.

    And I agree with you to a point that Darnold can throw from the pocket.  Of course he can.  But he also has abilities that should be taken advantage of and incorporated into the overall offensive scheme.

    Gase's offense has a lot of the short passing "West Coast" style offense built into it and it also has some of the vertical passing version of "West Coast".  All of it revolves around a static pocket.  Execution depends on precise routs, timing and pinpoint ball placement.  

    Sam can execute some of that stuff, but he is best suited for a different base offense.  With Darnold and Bell, the Jets offense should be doing something along the lines of what Gibbs, Bugel and Henning were doing with the Redskins offense in the 1980's.  

    We know Sam can pass from the pocket.  We also know he can and should be doing a lot more of what his abilities and instincts compel him to do.  Hence his little talk with Adam Gase...

    With a QB like Darnold, if you dont see motion and misdirection as a staple in your passing game, the reason is that your OC is clueless. And that goes double if your QB is Darnold and your ball carrier is Bell.

    This is all well and good, but it’s not how a developmental program works. You start out hammering home the fundamentals if the program and then as the student masters those, you give them some rope to expand upon those original guidelines, implementing a customizing elements that suit his talents. Hemingway had to learn the alphabet and basic grammar before he became a writer. 

    Right.  Position coaches are there to help with fundamentals.  Regardless, they have to get past fundamentals and muscle memory and on to a system a and playbook that puts their manpower in the best position to win...

    The Gase offense ran like a hot knife through butter as we racked up a 6-2 record with the most pathetic set of linemen and receivers in team history.

    Gase isn't the problem.  The roster is.  The heat should be on Douglas.  He's the one who hasn't proven anything yet.

    SAR I

    You can lead a horse to water, but... 

    Or more to the point... You can talk sense to a fanboy, but... 

  8. I came across this while reading more about the nuts and bolts of Gase's offensive nomenclature. Anyone who has been reading my posts will probably think I wrote this article...


    "Gase can’t afford to go down the same path as last season when he tried to force a Peyton Manning-style offense on Darnold. The Broncos might have been an offensive juggernaut with Manning, but that blueprint doesn’t work for a second-year quarterback with an entirely different set of strengths and weaknesses than one of the best signal callers in the history of the universe."

    "Darnold’s future greatness lies in his ability to make plays off script, throwing from unconventional angles on the run. That should be cultivated, not stifled."

    THE BARON COMMENTS:  And this would call for more designed pocket shifts and misdirection. Static pockets are for QB's like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.  NOT DARNOLD.  Line shifts and counter gap running would also take advantage of Bell's running style.  And I will say this again.  Not all of this has to be done with man blocking scheme up front, but this sort of offense with a lot of line motion goes hand in hand with fast, athletic offensive lineman that *can* play well in a man blocking scheme. 

    Either way, this will work out.  Either Gase gets his head out of his ass and the offense works, or he doesn't in which case he'll wont be around in 2021.  I just *HOPE* the right thing happens before a very talented QB gets sucked up the spout

    "A financial agreement on how and when players will share in the burden of inevitable revenue shortfalls and a set of guidelines that would cause individual teams — or the entire league — to be shut down by covid-19"

    I hope they get this worked out ... SOON

    I'm sure this will get pushback, but Calvin Pace should at least be in the conversation, certainly ahead of Buttle.  46 sacks as a Jet puts him 5th all-time.  

    Pace had some really nice games in 2009 & 2010.  Major contribution...

    He was terrible in coverage.  I will never forget sitting in section 123 in the endzone, in the 4th qtr of a close game (forget the opponent) Buttle dropped an easy INT  that would have assured a Jets win.  And the Jets went on to lose.   Plus his restraunt on Long Island was truly horrendous.   As for his commentary on the air.. he was a relentless homer and never accepted any fan criticism on the calls that came in after the game.  

    I think I remember an interesting tid-bit regarding his bar/restaurant.  If the Jets won that week, the bar maid got to keep her job.  If they lost, she got fired.  Some BS like that or something... I also remember another player in an interview saying that Buttle wanted to kill Richard Todd on the plane ride home from the Mud Bowl...

    all but Buttle.  Buttle was a Jag.

    He was good against the run and did some blitzing once in a while, but not too swift in coverage.  He's real good at the Jets pregame, though. Always good commentary...

    If Dan Snyder isn't being forced to sell at this point, Woody won't even be a conversation

    Indeed... Plus... There is nothing specific in these allegations.  It looks like politics.

    Jets non choir boys (excluding the list of DUI's): 

    Kellen Winslow #1 sleaze Jets player for sure
    Derrick Mason
    Plaxico Burress
    Santonio Holmes 
    Mark Gastineau (domestic abuse back in the day)

    When I was a kid watching the Jets, I liked Gastineau.  When I got a bit older and learned more about who he was, I wasn't too much of a fan any longer.  Domestic abuse, drugs and not a nice guy in general.  Seems though, he reformed later in life.  He's in bad shape with a host of serious health issues now...

    santanio holmes, plax buress.  they don't come much more criminal than these two.

    I dont think Plax was a bad person.  He was really foolish carrying a gun in a state that has mandatory jail sentences and even dumber showing off with his piece in public and even more of a moron to shoot himself "OH, MY LEG", but he really wasn't a horrible or evil person.  Just a total, irresponsible fool in one matter that the public knew about

    If he can stay healthy, l believe that he can be one of the steals of this draft. If he hadn't been injured in college I think he would have been a first round pick. JD is the man and I believe he just found a diamond in the rough.

    I see him as being a situational pass rusher on clear passing downs.  Much like NE used Chandler Jones.  They would switch from a two gap 34 to a one gap 43 with Jones on the edge.

    I think GW will use Zuniga the same way...

    Amazing how painless a real GM made this process. Maccagnan couldn’t get the deal sealed before training camp with at least one of his draft picks every year. 

    What a pleasant surprise.

    Indeed.   This above all gives me hope that the Jets will be a solid team for at least several years to come.  Not just that JD got them all signed without drama, but he has shown himself to be a top quality administrator every step of the way.  THIS is really something substantial to be excited about.  I think the Jets are in good hands.  Listening to JD at pressers, I also think he is the right guy to keep the Johnsons at bay.  That above all is wonderfully encouraging... 

  18. I really loved the legacy uniforms, especially in all white.  Parcells was right to switch the Jets back to those unis.  They are very slick and clean.   If they wanted to add more flair to the uni, I do like the idea of the new helmet color.   It is really nice.  They should have gone with the new helmet color, but used the Jets helmet emblem from the 80's.  That would have added a lot of flair.  They also need to get rid of the black face mask and go with white.  That would be an ideal helmet.  Current color, 80's logo and white face mask.  

    Also... Get rid of the swipe on the shoulder pads and go with the strips they had in the 80's.  That swipe they have now is way to low on the shoulder pad.  If they insist on a swipe, it should come up over the top of the shoulder pad where they numbers are now.

    And one last thing... GET RID OF THE BLACK UNIFORMS... Horrible.
