  1. Agree with OP.. why is a GM ONLY ONLY tied to a QB??  Makes no sense.  I think the consensus amongst the NFL, and our own fans, is that the Jets have a lot of young talent.  A LOT.   Who did that?   Who acquired them?   So you make one bad choice at QB and your job is over and done?  JD has whiffed at other picks.. but they arent the QB so it doesnt matter.  But he has also brought in sooooo much talent... but not a QB sooooo... yeah, gone.  It's stupid.  I would seriously consider my Jets fandom if he is fired for Zach.  Because of Zach.  JD knows what he is doing.  Let him do it. 

  2. Sorry.. im the heartless bastard here... get the "f" back on the field and do your f'ing jobs.   Period.  

    If your coworker died of a heart attack in the next cube.. you MIGHT be sent home... but I can pretty much guarantee you will be back to work tomorrow.  

    I feel for Hamlin (glad he is looking pretty good now).. i do.. emotions were high on Monday, a little less on Tuesday... and by Wednesday.. well.. you should have been playing the game.   

    I also love how they need to be with Hamlin .. then the team caught the first flight back to Buffalo and welp.. .left him behind.  Cant make that up.

    Time is well past to get the f*ck back to doing your jobs.

  3. I'll just keep repeating it:  We should be rooting for the name on the FRONT of the jersey.. not the back.  But since that is not going to happen, we need a space next to our usernames to show who we stand behind (and its unchangeable).   

    The amount of Zachsexuals is beyond me. 

    What are you watching that you think Zach was in any way responsible for that 5-2 record???? Jesus.  So for that guy, you can put Zach next to your name.  This can go along with all the people that wanted to keep Sam.

    The point is - if I see you wanted to keep Sam, and you don't think Zach is the problem now.. no one should listen to your "hot takes" for the rest of eternity. 

  4. This board cracks me up with inconsistency.. on one hand we cannot just look at stats for the whole picture.. Mike White had 2 ints yesterday, on paper.. he had 2 Ints.. period.  But if you watched the game, you would see the context of both Ints (1 was a deflection, 1 desperation pass).  


    The same can be said for MLF.  On paper he had close to 500 yards of offense.  500 yards, including all the drops.  But if you watched the game the hidden context was: nice drives until we hit the redzone.. once inside the redzone, instead of going north and south.. the play calls were to the east and west.  And yes, many were designed that way (screens and flats). 


    So yes, the offense played well.  But there needs to be a lot of work done inside the red zone.

    So if Mike White throws a late pick to lose 30-24 to the Vikings in Minnesota, starting Zach Wilson and his league-worst statistical profile is back on the table? Or does Mike White have to produce Mahomes numbers every week in order to hold off the league’s worst quarterback?

    Amen Tom.  Amen.  He is ranked 35 out of 32 QBs this year... that means 2 backups were better.  But sure, Mike White needs to keep that bull in the pen.  Jesus.

  6. I dont think this post is based in reality.  Let me go to your dreamland for a second..  so Zach is pretty good in this fantasy world but his evil offensive coordinator is just hindering his ability..  got it.  So at no time in this fantasy world does Zach just say.. "nah.. I am not doing this.. I am going to do it my way"... he apparently does not.. and he happily lets the evil offensive coordinator allow him to throw for.... ******checks notes****** 2 ******* yards?  Got it.

    Or maybe... just maybe.. back here in reality... Zach sucks and he is making the offensive coordinator look like he doesnt know what hes doing.

    hes more worried about getting sacked than finding open receivers and getting knocked on his butt

    I have said it a million times on this board - he is terrified to get hit.  He is scared.  One of the Patriots DL players said it after the game yesterday.. something to the effect that once Zach feels pressure he takes his eyes away from downfield and goes into self protection mode.  That is literally how YOU and I would play if they made us suit up at QB for the Jets.   He is scared.  Plain and simple.

  8. More receipts from Saleh and Co.   Here we were weeks ago saying "why is Q going off the field?".. "tired of these player swaps".. Saleh clearly shows again, he might know what he is doing and some of us need to be a little more patient with the plans.  Myself included.

  9. I am relatively new here, I joined around the last year or 2 of Darnold.   I remember the back and forth between the pro-Darnold and anti-Darnold stuff.  This reminds me of that.  

    Question: So if you were anti-Darnold you have been proven to be correct.  He wasn't good.  Time has told us this.  So, do those people get a little credit for being right? Maybe they know what they are talking about if they say the same thing about Wilson?  

    Or does this board take the approach that they got lucky with Darnold and don't know what they are talking about with Wilson?

    I think we should start a new star system here.  If you thought Darnold sucked and Wilson too.. and you are proven right in the future.. you should get 5 stars.  This way we can tell by their username (and the stars next to them) that this person might know what they are talking about. 

    Maybe we can avoid these debates in the future.


    I am all for it.  I agree with me.

    Jimmy G has a career completion of over 67% and career passer rating of over 91. He also has a 36-17 record.  There is nothing average about him.  And he has enough legs left he can be the starter for the next 10 years. Plus he'll be half the price of lamar. 

    No reason to go back to the draft well that hasn't worked  for us in the last 30 years.

    I could not agree more. Signing Lamar is gonna cost a major dollar on our cap space.  Some of these young guys are not gonna get paid because of this - unless they go the Watson route and give it to him guaranteed. 

    Jimmy makes a lot of sense to me.

    This thread is an example of the lengths that Zach jersey buyers will go to defend their purchase 

    Haha so true.. how anyone can watch that game and NOT think that Zach Wilson wasnt the reason we lost... well.. its beyond me.  I wish we had the days where criticism was allowed and you werent called a "doomer" or a "bad fan".

    Watch the game like you do?  You act like you're the head of player personnel, when you really know nothing more than the rest of us.  Here's another thought.  Perhaps he's confused and not terrified?  He's already proven he's not afraid of getting hit.  Maybe the game hasn't slowed down for him yet.  Maybe he hasn't yet learned the ability of the defenses he's playing against, which is causing him to make bad decisions. 

    The only cure is experience.  He's either gonna learn and become a franchise QB, or he's not.  The fact remains the Jets are invested in him, and they won't be pulling the plug anytime soon.  They're waiting, just like the rest of us, to see how this plays out.  How long?  My guess is ZW is playing every game this season.  So, you might as well stop whining and complaining about the guy and start pulling for him instead.  

    Love the internet.   Waaah my opinion is the only one... waaaah.  Grow up.  I simply gave my opinion.. you  dont agree with it.  I was SHOCKED.. I mean SHOCKED that you call me out for not knowing more than the rest... yet you go right ahead and give... checks notes... oh right, YOUR opinion.  See how this works? 

    But also understand, there is something called nuance.. criticism... and guess what? you can STILL root for your team and offer criticism.  The world has lost that.. everything is black or white.. nothing in between.  So guess what? You can criticize awful QB play and STILL be a JET fan.  Can you believe that? 

    NOT saying the sky is falling doesnt make you any better than the rest of us.  You're just choosing to pretend Zach is good.  You'll get over it.

  13. I cant state this enough.. he is terrified out there.  Zach plays like you and I would if the Jets called us to Florham Park today.  Sure, it would be cool, but by Sunday we would sh*t our pants.  He knows he is allusive, he can get away, so for fear of actually dying, thats what he does.  He almost NEVER steps up in the pocket.  He does one read and is gone - even in clean pockets!  But it doesnt stop there - oh no - when he is gone, he runs backwards (away from everyone).  Guess what happens when you run the other way? You turn your head and can't see where everyone is!  Pure logic.  By the time you turn around, all your reads are gone.. people are nowhere where they need to be and they are running around, unscripted, trying to get open. 

    This is what Bart Scott was trying to tell you guys last year after the Titans game.  Everyone got on him back then for being sour after a great Jet win, but guess what? He was right.  And Zach is STILL doing the exact same thing.   

    So please, watch the game like I do, realize Zach is terrified out there and ALL your questions of why he does what he does will be answered.
