  1. Well, all 10 of our wins were by multiple scores, so none of our wins were really close.
  2. We got very unlucky in close games. We easily could have won against the Bucs, Steelers, Jags, Pats and Titans.
  3. For reference, here are the Bills stats against opposing QBs over 16 games..... 172 Yards per game 5.8 Yards per attempt 11 TDs 19 Ints 56.9% completion They rank 1st in all those categories except Interceptions, where they are 3rd.
  4. Allen also didn't have the same level of coaching coming into the NFL as other top prospects. He had much more room for growth. Allen also didn't play on a college team that had a significant talent gap against it's competition.
  5. It's not a good sign that Wilson only looks equivalent to a Rookie Allen if you take away Allen's rushing ability. Allen was also on a significantly less talented offense.
  6. Was curious if he would be playing week 18. Last thing I remember about him was only missing something like 6-8 weeks after week 1 and haven't heard much about him since. I doubt he gets activated for just week 18, so I assume he will be out all year if he isn't activated pretty soon.
  7. From my perspective...... 1. He was hyped up as the next Mahomes putting unrealistic expectations for him and Jets fans. 2. He was gifted the starting job and didn't earn it. At the same time, his backups have produced more, which leads to questions on his overall ability. 3. Mac Jones is playing well, putting more pressure on Wilson to produce sooner.
  8. Why would you start Flacco over Mike White? I can only think of two explanations. JD is trying to cover his ass for the awful Flacco trade or your Offensive Coaches are clueless. Mike White has 3 starts. In those 3, he has won offensive player of the week, got hurt on a TD drive, and threw 4 picks vs the Best defense in football. He deserves another opportunity if WIlson isn't ready. Putting in Flacco is just desperation. Instead of reflecting on the scheme and their ability to coach, seems like the Jets are just throwing in random QBs to see if it makes the scheme work.
  9. Apply this concept to any other job or yourself, and you realize it's a sh*tty thing to do, even if it's allowed. Imagine if your skills are in high demand, and your current employer low balls you on a offer, when you know a competitors will pay you more with long term security. When you decline the disrespectful offer, he forces you to stay at the company below market value until your value erodes.
  10. Both the union and front office are at fault. The front office doesn't need to tag him, knowing that most people worthy of the tag are not fans of it. Why piss off a player you plan to keep long term? This is exactly what happened with Maye in the off-season. It's the same reason why teams don't use the franchise tag before extending QBs to mega contracts that would be cheaper with the tag. Not good to piss off players you want to keep long term.
  11. You answered your own question. Maye has publicly stated he didn't want to be tagged. Doing something against an individuals wishes because you can is just a sh*tty thing in many cases. He likely didn't want to get tagged for your later reason. They used the tag to pay Maye less than what he believed he was worth, and wouldn't let him test the market.
  12. That player would have been available in March if not for the tag. It extends the negotiating window by 4 months. If most players worthy of the tag don't like it, how is that not abuse? Again, some teams use the tag in bad faith to get the player cheap for an extra year. This is exactly what happened with Maye.
  13. They aren't the same. There was never any intent to sign Maye long term, and everybody on this board knew it. It's smart by the team, but it's sh*tty to the player. This is why many teams don't even use the tag at all.
  14. The tags original intent was to increase the negotiating window between teams. The Jets used the tag to hold Maye hostage for 1 year at a reduced price. Its kinda sh*tty.
  15. Fans matter because they impact the bottom line. You are effectively feeding the fire of a QB controversy if you don't start White. You just can't ignore a player who won AFC player of the week in his first start, and was playing well before injury. If you are team Wilson, the best case scenario is hoping White starts but looks bad against Buffalo, so there is less resistance when you go back to Wilson. Honestly, White playing well vs Buffalo isn't a bad thing either.
