  1. Franklin-Myers has been the pass rush. Let's hope he is a go.
  2. Nice to see the family saw the thread. Thanks for your efforts @BP.
  3. The recent passing of Savage69 reminded me of how I came to internet message boards and where this all began. It started with USENET which had a discussion group with a Jet message board. One of the old time posters mentioned the "Green House". Perhaps that was it. I neither posted there nor read it. It took a certain type of computer person back then. I was a Kaypro man back then - ever hunt the Wumpus? - and quite computer literate (Ah, dot commands). But that was not an internet compatible computer. Never once let me down. Fabulous product. But along came Windows and whoosh . .
  4. Now that is a fine thread title. Given team depth at safety, I expect the Jets to continue sorting the cut pile. The bad news is that we lose our #2 waiver claim status after game three. The good news is we will soon be 0-3 and will have #1 priority. I am sure the Jets made it clear that it was the opportunity of his career but it was filled with banana peels. I doubt he will be upset since we brought him back quickly. Too soon to judge since he was thrown to the wolves. Unlike Colbert and Wilson, Redwine is a youngster. But they can help us now. Ah, close but
  5. I love Bien-Aime. The idea of English teachers reading his tweets makes me feel warm inside. And that's "no kizzy". PS - I have noted he is brave (or unwise) - calling out the coach - and hard working. It is hard to contest the "Berrios is not the future" argument. Hey, they freed Britney Spears . . . Nah. Their sights are much higher. WONDERFUL DENZEL!. That is the correct side of the field but next time do not go in motion and the snap is on two, not three. And the pattern was a crosser, not a screen pass. But you're making progress. Not only would
  6. As I wrote earlier in the thread, the offensive line is the one area where the season is pretty much wasted. "I grow depressed watching the Jets field four starters on the offensive line who are unlikely to start for us next year. They constitute wasted snaps which should have been given to a young draft pick. Fant and McGovern are under contract but can be cheaply bought out and we will. Moses will leave and GVR is a backup. Even if we still had Becton, Lewis, Clark and McDermott we would still be playing two guys - McGovern and Moses/Fant who are almost certainly goners.
  7. Welp, time for my first warning from the moderators.
  8. Nice to see you posting. I will defend our wild Rex. He won big games repeatedly. It was exciting. He fooled the league for almost two years. Until somebody dethrones ole Rex, he is #3 all time as a Jets coach. I know, those were 9-7 teams. But Rex can point to big wins. Who among us will ever forget the Shawn Ellis game against New England? He squeezed ever drop of juice out of Sanchez. Unlike Geno, Mark never earned backup status after leaving. Namath once said that as a rookie he thought Weeb was the meanest old man he had ever met. As time went on he noted that "old
  9. As I wrote in another thread on this subject: I cannot believe I am saying this but I am far more optimistic for this season and the rebuild than I was at the beginning of the year. Seriously. I thought that our light fast young defense was going to have serious issues. I doubted that we would be able to stymie power running attacks unless we went heavy and then they are dictating the action . . . and we are off our game. I expected backs to blast right up the middle for scores. So far, I have seen only one and we had lots of chances to stop him. Plus the defense was gass

  11. I too see a 5-12 season coming and worry that the scouting report was right about Zach (not ready - needs to sit a year). I do agree with the opening post that AVT had an excellent game. Zach was clearly off his game. So I spent my time watching the other rookie - AVT. He really did have an excellent game. PFF is fun but I trust my eyes more. We do not have the Washington Hogs but AVT looked like a solid starter yesterday. He has a knack for seal blocks. On one of them, you could see the defensive lineman read the play but AVT turned him anyway. Neither Barmore nor Wise were
  12. Such sad news. While I am not an old poster on JN, I am an old poster on other message boards. Savage69 went back to the old New York Times message board. That was such a different time for the internet. We never met but message boards are one of those things. All dedicated Jet fans can hoist one to Savage69. Rest in peace.
  13. No. It is a supporting cast thing and a game plan that makes sense. We are Jet fans. We know Sam. Ask yourself, will this work: "Sam, throw it to Johnny, if it is not there then throw it to McCaffery." "Sam, throw it to Billy, if it is not there then throw it to McCaffery." Sam - YOU GET THE IDEA. They also have him taking plenty of snaps under center and running play action before they . . . "dump it to McCaffery." I am not surprised that it is working. Sam never had a McCaffery. Sam never had a game plan. Sam never had a coach who realized that he can make a
  14. Apparently so. He has made the coaching staff forget about them too. All indications were that he had the best camp outside of Moore among the WRs. Yes. It is Smith over Mims. Berrios returns punts and gives you depth. But it is Cole and Smith who have put Mims on the bench. Outright release? Trade? I doubt both for the same reason. Not much is going to come back in return. Mims is still an excellent prospect. But it is a disappointment that he has been unable to learn the playbook well enough to line up correctly and run the proper pattern. He is going to take time
  15. I enjoy NFL football and am usually magnanimous towards our opponents in a spirit of sportsmanship and good will. But not when we play New England. I want to win 45-0 sending the home crowd into a frenzy which can be heard in Montana. As for predictions - well - lets just say: "half a league, half a league, half a league onward, all in the valley of death rode the six hundred". I want us to run a conservative offense with a lot of 12 and 13 personnel with run substitutes like screens and Jet sweeps. Hopefully we get up on them early. If not, no heroics.

  17. Me too. WTF? Did you see that clip of Golladay yelling at some equipment guy working on a helmet (presumably his). It looked like it might come to blows. The equipment guy looked like he wanted to be somewhere else. I am not good with the video clips but that one is a doozy.
  18. Well! Look what we have here. After we apply the "off sides" needle (see above) we can say "S--t just be lame to me". Trust me, it will work wonders fellas. I hated it when my Giants fan buddy used to say "six" which was Roger Vick's wonderlic score.
  19. I was astonished how obnoxious he was towards the referees. As if they existed so he could let off steam. I know coaches needle referees, it is part of the job. But I saw behavior that does not win friends and influence people. I instantly disliked him and the WTF coach is a real pro. The Giants are the better team but Coach Rivera got the better of Coach Judge. Judge looked like he had swallowed a sea urchin. Best coach agony face since Coach Nagy of the Bears (when his kicker missed the playoff kick).
  20. Well this week Daniel Jones held onto the ball. And then that happened. That ending was - er - "goatesque". Heh. For the second time, the Giants have given all Jet fans an instantly recognizable method to get under the skin of Giant fans. The Jamal Adams strip sack was the first "hey bro, did Jones fumble that thing or was it taken like a little kid's lollypop" ("and that's when I hit him your honor"). Now all we have to say is "off sides" and the melee will ensue. "Off sides". Heh.
  21. lol. I hate New England too. "as the Patriot O line has our defense line in head locks and suplexing them." An instant classic.
  22. During his rookie year, he got sick and lost weight discipline. He played the second half of the year at 270-280. Other guys would have shut it down. He never let it happen again.
  23. Now, c'mon. Our big guy got rolled up from behind. Can happen to any lineman and does. The real issue was why the interior blocking left its feet and ended up on the ground along with the defender. He got hurt due to poor play inside. I do think the knee is worse than they are letting on. We shall see.
  24. A great read and a good topic. Many want to throw Joe Douglas under the bus for poor draft performance. But I know I speak for many Jet fans who are delighted with his performance thus far. This is why. I have read many posters declare that the only measure of success is player performance. Is the player good or not? I have been watching Jet Gms for more than 40 years. Believe me when I tell you. I think this is WRONG because it is pure hindsight. Hindsight has a place in evaluating management. But so does process and we have lacked an objective process. What I want is
