    But isnt thqt exactly what doesnt make sense about it? Wouldn’t you want that competition? Wouldn’t you want to push your QB? I mean if yourQB cant handle that pressure, what can he handle?

    I'm not sure if he needed competition on his plate on top of everything else. He seems highly motivated and hard working. Hopefully he just needs time and experience. If you want to say he should have sat while a vet played the first few weeks, OK. That may have helped, but then the vet would have taken all the reps with the starters. Would less reps have been the better plan? 

    Right now I'm more pissed that we can't stop a screen play and ran up the middle twice to start the game.

    Zach Wilson was good yesterday prior to getting injured.

    I'm not even sure what game you guys were watching - unless it's with your anti-zach glasses...

    You've all been asking to see progress and you got it yesterday ----- drove the field twice, threw screen passes, took some short passes, but also made some nice throws...

    Exactly right. He put them in position to score on 2 of his 3 drives. And the first drive was the ghastly run run sack, not his fault. I think some of the complaints about Zach are on auto-pilot now.

    That is a fair point, but was his decision to not bring in any viable backups to give him competition so in a way, he did have influence in that decision. 

    So if he had a viable backup, wouldn't you have been screaming to bench Zach every time he made a mistake? Might there be divisions in the locker room if he made mistakes? Vets not having patience for rookie mistakes? 

    It was a calculated decision to let Zach have room to make mistakes and learn, warts and all. 

    Unfortunately, we have so many rookies going through the same thing at the same time, we look epically bad and it is miserable to be a fan right now.

    I'm not sure why anyone thought the Jets would be good this year, but to answer why they're bad? Inexperience

    They have a first-time head coach, first-time offensive coordinator, first-time defensive coordinator, a rookie QB, and 6 other rookie starters on both offense and defense (not to mention the youngest team in the NFL). 

    This roster is more talented than those we've seen in the past few seasons, but that doesn't necessarily mean they will win more. These guys are still learning the ropes on the fly, and unlike some teams, we have significant contributors in every positional group who are rookies. Smart defenses and offenses key in on that and will game plan against you differently, knowing that there will be some mental lapses among those guys. 


    I know it's been tough to watch, especially after a loss like yesterday. The next 3 weeks are going to suck, but the final 8 games of the season have a chance to be fun. The schedule softens significantly, I do think we'll see an improved Zach Wilson post-injury (kind of like we saw for Sam Darnold in 2018), we'll likely have Mekhi back, and at some point its going to "click" for a bunch of these younger guys which should lead to some exciting football at the very least. 

    There's a lot of things to sh*t on (I have a long list), but think it's best to kind of sit back and watch how things progress. I for one didn't expect much different in the Jets first 6 games; I expected them to be 0-6. I didn't foresee an injury/Cincinnati being so good, but I expected we would be 1-8 through 10 weeks. I do see them winning 4-to-6 games in the final 8, but ultimately, just preparing to see better performances. 

    The Cardinals 3-year rebuild is kind of what I'm hoping to see the Jets foster. I didn't have expectations this year, I do expect them to be a more consistent team next year, but I think 2023 is the year they can put together something special. They have a lot of guys who are really, really talented and will continue to add players the next 2 seasons. I hate waiting as much as anyone else, but I don't realistically expect this team to be a contender anytime soon... if the organization can remain patient between now and 2023, they have a chance to build something special for that season and hopefully many years to come. 

    Agreed. Although I did not expect them to look this bad. 

    Really, the only hope is that these guys will learn from their mistakes and get better next year.  We just put all of this together and it is not getting dismantled after one season.

    But it epically sucks to be a fan and have to watch this 'phase' of the plan, with no guarantee we will actually improve.

  5. It would be great if by the end of this year we at least establish if Becton-AVT-CM-TBD-Moses is viable for next year. Would love to bring back Fant as the swing tackle at a reduced contract rather than as our LT with poor run blocking skills and the same contract.

    I'm not worried about Becton's skills at LT, he looked great for a rookie last year and had to play with Feeney at his side in camp while learning the new O (and Lawson in his face). He'll be fine with time to gel with AVT. Maybe a little worried about durability but hoping that issue improves.

  6. The coaching staff is trying to put vets on the field to help Wilson in his first year, while at the same time getting the young WRs ready to take over next year. I'm sure the goal is Moore, Mims and Davis as the starters going forward (next year). 

    Once again (again (again (again))etc) , this year is about implementing the new schemes, making mistakes/improvements, finding players with long term potential, and then the off season with the cap space and picks to fill in the gaps. A win or loss on a given week doesn't change this.( It does put on tape material to evaluate going into next year)
