  1. While I voted as per the instructions. It is not how I envision final cuts. If you try this exercise against the entire roster, you find that final cuts are going to be a monster. We have more than 52 players and there is no way we can sort the defense in a single training camp. As things stand, just to keep all the defensive draft picks we would have to cut all the free agents and I do not think that is going to happen. Guys like Isaiah Dunn and Hamelcar Rashid are unlikely cuts. Truly. I suspect that the Jets will keep three running backs and stash a waiver survivor on the practi
  2. The actual name of the Knicks comes from the nickname for the descendants of the Dutch settlers of New York. They were said to be knickerbockers. Tonight I raise my glass to the Knickerbockers. We return to the playoffs for the first time in a long time. It has been an amazing year. If only Robinson were healthy and we were at full strength. Though I have to admit that Noel and Gibson have surprised in a big way. Randle is the straw that stirs the drink, but as Barrett goes so go the fortunes of the Knicks. When he is on they are a match for the entire NBA. Here's to hoping
  3. Actually, it was DDT. It ruins the chemical bonds that make eggshells hard, so any large egg laying bird could not reproduce and were wiped out. The US government banned DDT for that reason. It took decades but the DDT finally diminished in the environment and the birds of prey could finally make a comeback. When I was growing up in the 1970s in New York's Hudson Valley; hawks, eagles and other birds of prey were virtually nonexistent. They only thing that endured were the Turkey Vultures and Black Vultures. The comeback of the Red-Tailed Hawk along the NYS Thruway was something t
  4. I figured I would start a humor thread since I did not see one. If there is one, my apologies. Needless to say, let's not create a problem for the moderators. So no dirty jokes, no ethnic humor, no religious humor and anything else that would upset the Maxman. I will start with a true story. I love this: Dear Empress Hotel: This may seem like and unusual request, but I write to you today, seeking a “pardon”. 17 Years ago a string of unfortunate events led to my being banned from your hotel. I would like to explain the incident…… In 2001, I had recently joined my curren
  5. As I posted earlier this month, for those who missed it. I meant to do this last night but the beer took over . . . We signed two highly rated players and I review them first. Hamelcar Rashid is 6' 3" 255 lbs and projects at edge. He carried a 4th round grade. He played from a two-point stance as a 3-4 outside linebacker and moved to defensive end when lined up in a 4-3 on passing downs. He has some good cannot teach skills with 33 3/4" arms and 10" hands. He ran a 4.6 40 and put up 25 reps with those long levers which is impressive. An athletic tweener with excellent length
  6. Cue the tribe of Zach Wilson . . . .
  7. Herndon is our #1. Every team needs an inline tight end who can block and run routes. All he has to do is stay healthy and squeeze the easy ones. He is tough to beat out for the job. Many Jet fans forget he is a solid blocker. You can do a lot worse and many teams do. We could upgrade at H-back but Herndon would still be the starter. I expect him to get a second contract because replacement is both expensive in draft capital and uncertain as to result. I think that Griffin is in a fight for the career against Kroft. One of them is going to be the backup and the other is a cut. T
  8. I agree that your your backup QB needs to have strong study habits. However, when Morgan was drafted Ourlads said that "he works as hard off the field studying film and opponents as he does on the field." He was also known for his leadership - team captain - and he won the leadership award at the shrine game. In short, the backup QB you seek is already on the Jets. Given the QB leftovers, I would bring somebody in at the minimum and make clear that must beat out Morgan for the backup job if they want to make the team.
  9. Oh, I do not think it is so bad. I would do anything for a Miko Grimes wife or mother. She has made me howl with laughter. During last year's 2-14 season, it would have been a welcome distraction. Besides, she will stop posting when twitter starts responding with pictures of their Zach Wilson sex doll. Personally, I hope Zach watches Bull Durham and gets it.
  10. Thanks. I edited the posts. I think the good Smith with the bad leg is still available - but retired. When the early posts were current, the bad Smith with the good legs who thinks the earth is flat was still available. He has since rejoined the Seahawks.
  11. Do you realize what this means? Bridgewater forgot the golden rhule. So I go back home, I tell the landlady that I got a job. I'm gonna pay the rent. And then she was so nice. Loh' she was lovy-dovy. So I go in my room, pack up my things and I go. No, the owner who is infatuated with Massage Therapists in in New England. You're welcome. That would be SAR I. Rocking on over.
  12. Do not let them get you down. Every team carries some undrafted free agents and they get into the game more than you would think. Last season our UDFA's Huff, Jackson and Guidry played all the time. Jackson had eight starts. Further, with this no combine and no shrine game oddball year - the draft became a crap shoot. The UDFA pile contains players who would otherwise have been drafted. The COVID year gave an advantage to players from established programs and hurt players from smaller schools and those whose teams cancelled the season. Douglas left no stone unturned. Good teams get
