    Becton, Mims, and Hall are all virtual locks to be hits in my mind.

    Just need at least one, maybe 2 of those mid-round guys to be useful and that's a solid draft class.  I think Ashtyn Davis will be a solid starter, Zuniga will be a nice situational pass rusher, and Clark will at least be a good depth OL. 

    Meanwhile, all Morgan has to do to be a good pick is win the QB2 job.  A cheap QB2 to go with a cheap QB1 is a very good situation to be in.

    Do you really believe the jets are gonna go with a rookie qb, and a qb who has never taken an nfl regular game snap as his back-up?... Thats pure stupidity, what does Morgan add to the qb room? He does not know the offense, the nfl, and is as ‘ green’ as the rookie they are drafting. That said, they will sign veteran right before or after draft. 

  2. It was a pretty decent interview, but aside from kim jones, the media is a group of morons. They asked question same way 10 times. He is 100 pct taking Wilson, he all but said it. He also clearly thinks alot of Sam as a person, But his job is to win games, and clearly believes Wilson gives the jets a better chance to win.

    as parcells say you are what your record says you are-parcells took a one win team to the playoffs right away

    right now all we know about Joe is

    he is the gm of the second worst team in football in year 3 of his contract

    his draft was avg at best , his free agents avg at best (I would say poor)

    This year is a make or break year-2-4 wins is not acceptable again and the roster should be able to compete


    95-100 percent agree. To be even more specific, if Wilson busts, he will never come close to being here for the rest of his contract.. Where i disagree, we are clearly the worst team in out division, the other 3 will be .500 or better, i don’t see us winning more than 4-5 games.

    I hear all the Mullens talk, but for me Wilson needs a vet like Alex smith to watch for a while (even if it’s just a few weeks) to learn by watching. Aside from building the line up and amassing playmakers, sitting and watching might be exactly what he needs. I know that’s not something most teams do any more, but all the talent in the world can’t replicate that experience. 

    Would not complain about either Mullens or Smith, both would be valuable for obvious, though different reasons...

    The success or failure of this team is now COMPLETELY on the back on JD,  starting today. No more looking back at the disaster that was Mike Maccagnan. No more blaming Adam Gase for being Adam Gase. In theory, and in theory only, this is the blueprint for building long term success. In Joe I trust, for now. 

    Yep, been a jets fan for over 50 yrs, this yr is as pivotal as i can remember. If he knows what he is doing, with all the draft capital and cap space, he should be able to turn this around. Last yr, i was underwhelmed by both his drafting and free agent signing. He gets way too much credit for Becton. Everyone knew we were taking an Ot. Both becton and wirfs were there, so hard to miss, and after 1 yr, Wirfs was the better player...

    Wait is your argument "Joe Burrow is not good because he ended the season on IR"? 

    Burrow was on pace to have one of if not the best passing season by a rookie in the modern NFL. He was the first rookie to throw for 300 yards in three consecutive games...ever. He completed more passes through his first 7 games than any other rookie. ever. 

    Understand your narrative around 1 year wonders being scary - and i'm with you I actually am not sold on Kyler at all, but the Burrow "facts" are more so "jaded opinion" 


    They both had strong years and are going to be top 15 qbs in the league for a long time, and burrow did it behind an offensive line ranked worse the Jets. Look for them to load up on OL in draft, starting with their 1st pick.

    Just think about this for a minute.

    How BAD this Jets organization was the past 3 years.  This guy was LITERALLY the worst ranked QB in the NFL - and just got $19mm...

    The Panthers just said - the Jets are sooooo bad that we think the worst QB in the league is worth $19mm a year and 3 draft picks.

    So sad, so very, very sad.

    Let's hope JD knows how to build!

    Agree, and why do we think Sam will flourish with Carolina?

    They bet over 45 million on Bridgewater, and he was terrible. Clearly, they have no credibility in evaluating qbs..

    This is a rediculous statement .. we have no idea what Morgan is yet.

    Sent from my SM-G950U1 using JetNation.com mobile app

    And we are likely never going to find out, thats the point,  genius . We are going to have a 22 yr old qb next yr, with a veteran back-up. You will never see Morgan as a starter for the Jets. It was and will be a wasted 4th rd pick.

    Here is a very interesting take on the Darnold trade and one we as Jets fans had better be aware of.....


    Listen, do i think Sam will be better this yr than last? Of course he will be, it would be almost impossible to be worse than he was last yr. Will he ever be a top 15 qb, absolutely not.

    I am a Panthers fan and the Sam Darnold trade broke me

    April 5, 2021 7:52 pm

    I’ve typed out and erased like five ledes for this blog.

    The first couple would have either gotten me fired or landed me on some type of FBI watch list. The next few were about how the Panthers have broken me as a fan over the last few years, which nobody actually cares about.

    And, really, there’s no setup needed here. The Panthers trading second-, fourth- and sixth-round picks to the Jets for Sam Darnold is the setup. And the punchline is the team immediately picking him up his fifth-year option, guaranteeing him about $19 million in salary in 2022.

    This comes a year after the team gave Teddy Bridgewater $33 million guaranteed and two years after the team used a Day 2 pick on Will Grier, who’s thrown as many NFL touchdowns as you have and four more interceptions. Up next on the conveyor belt of mediocre Cam Newton replacements is Darnold, who was the second-best quarterback on the NFL’s second-worst team.


    I mean, I do get the allure of Darnold. He’s young. He’s athletic. He’s got some arm talent. And the Jets did not really give him a chance to succeed. But he was also outplayed by the corpse of Joe Flacco in 2020 and wasn’t very good in even the most ideal situations.

    The numbers are bad and, outside of a few splash plays, the film isn’t much better. Darnold is still largely the same quarterback he was coming out of USC. The athletic talent is there still there, but so are the questions about his decision-making and accuracy. In other words, he’s a bad quarterback.

    Beyond all that, the Panthers gave up more than they probably had to for the right to rehabilitate Darnold’s career. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapaport, the Panthers were the “sole suitor” for Darnold. ESPN’s Rich Cimini says the Jets had pretty much given up on the idea of keeping Darnold around to sit behind the rookie QB they inevitably draft next month.

    So Carolina was bidding against itself and still ended up sending the equivalent of a late first-round pick to New York for a quarterback who probably would have been available for nothing in the next few weeks. It’s possible the Panthers wanted to get him on the roster before the deadline to pick up a fifth-year option … but that doesn’t really make sense either because if the team offered Darnold an extension that paid him $19 million in 2022, I’d imagine he’d sign it.

    It just didn’t make any sense for Carolina to rush this move. The draft is just weeks away, and with the Panthers picking eighth, there’s still a decent chance that one of the top QB prospects slips to them at that spot. Why not wait until after the draft to make the move for Darnold? Maybe Carolina considered Darnold a better option than the prospects in this year’s class, but there is very little evidence to back that up. And Darnold is going to cost the team a lot more money if he does end up being the starter for more than two years.

    We’re now headed into Year 2 of the Matt Rhule era and there still isn’t a clear long-term plan in place. Like Bridgewater before him, Darnold will have a year to prove he’s worth a long-term investment. If/when he doesn’t, and the Panthers end up drafting in a similar spot (just outside of QB range) what’s next? What is the plan? Is there a plan?

    This team has its fan base caught in this weird loop of mediocrity that really is unique when you look around the league. There is nothing to be excited about in the present. There is nothing to look forward to. There is no reason for hope. If the Bears’ Andy Dalton “QB1” tweet were an NFL franchise, it’d be the Panthers.

    Spot on, well written.

    We can judge the trade in two years, when we get whomever we're getting from those picks (the 6th this year and 4th next year are mostly irrelevant, the #2 next year is the meat of the trade for us) and when we see how Sam plays in 2021 down there.  Hot takes now are silly.

    If JD winds up drafting 4th round picks, like he did with Morgan,  that are irrelevant, he won’t be a gm for long. That is the part of the draft where great gms flourish...

  12. We all know the way drafts are weighted for pts. Generally speaking , a pick in the next draft is valued at one full round less than getting it this yr. So if you think he won this trade, we got a 6th, 3rd , and 5th. Nothing special by any standards... That said, Sam sucks, so not surprised...or disappointed. Time to reset, again.
