  1. Your win prediction isn’t that of a rebuild tracking well. It’s just another sh***y year.
  2. I never thought Houston would come out of this smelling like rose when Watson decided to sit out last year, but right now they’re like…
  3. Under the new agreement though, I’m fairly certain Goodall doesn’t get to decide this. It goes to a mediator. They decide, That’s why you read the NFL is pushing for x, and the NFLPA will be pushing for Y.
  4. You know how much I like Baker, so I was curious about the Browns fans reaction to all this when they signed Watson. They reacted pretty much the way I think we, and most other fan bases would. At first it was split about three ways, with one group excited they signed Watson, even though they assumed a suspension would happen. The other two thirds were a combination of Baker supporters and those who were appalled by the signing. As time went on though a lot of those in the second two groups began to reconcile with the idea of Watson playing for them. You began to see a bunch of “Baker wasn’t that good anyway” and “he brought this on himself” stuff tempered by “he was the best QB we had in years, but…” stuff. Then a lot of those in the group who hated the idea of signing a sexual predator began to say things like “it’s time to move on from this, he’s our QB”. The point here is that fans are going to fan. We all think we have our limits to who we’ll root for, but at the end of the day most of us will be okay with holding our nose and justify rooting for someone we’d never associate with in our real lives… as long as they helped our team win.
  5. What’s your problem with 22year olds, Beav?
  6. Didn’t he already get a signing bonus of about $40 million already, or am I wrong?
  7. Back in the day, I was on a bit of a roll where I would bring an assortment of what my friends were rating as 10’s to my parent’s home for Sunday dinners. My mom, God rest her soul, would shake her head and say “wassamattahyou? You can’t find a nice Italian girl?”
  8. @SAR I after selling his tickets to Max…
  9. I like that we’re each getting a day to start our own “what I think about Zach” thread this offseason.
  10. It is exactly the same as the Sam show. If you necro those threads and change the names, you wouldn’t be able to tell them apart. The only difference I can tell is we didn’t add Jordan Palmer to the CS midway through Sam’s rookie season.
  11. It’s page 2…. When does this evolve into a discussion about the uniforms, and how much we each hate/love them?
  12. Oh yeah, now I remember seeing him talk about that a few weeks back.
  13. Same. I make it at least once a week. If I have a piece of leftover chicken or sausage I’ll slice it up and put it in the garlic and oil. Another favorite when it’s summer time is slicing up a few nice tomatoes, drizzle them with olive oil, slice some garlic and put some fresh basil on top. Let it sit for a while, then go to town on it with a nice crusty bread
  14. Ranch dressing and fried calamari should never, ever… ah, forget it! I’m gonna stop now before I break something.
  15. The fact that people here are actually disputing these things in order to make a point about Zach’s ability to play QB is both amazing and sad. I mean… why?
  16. Now you’re making yourself look and sound foolish, just to be argumentative. Who ended the ‘20 season as the Pats QB, and was the returning starter going into their TC? We know you know the answer… we’ll wait for you to tell us who it was.
  17. That’s a great point. I never looked at it that way, but I think you’re 100% correct.
  18. I don’t know, you could be right. Living 700 miles away, I get almost all my Jets news right here, it’s not like I’m talking football with a big group of our fans down here in SC. The sense I get in here is he gets a lot less rope than Sam did his rookie year. It drove me nuts how many were convinced he was some kind of generational talent, not to mention the “he’s only x years old” stuff. With Zach, I think the board all wants to see him succeed, but there isn’t the same percentage of people convinced he will?
  19. I wonder how a lot of us would be judging Wilson if we had never drafted Sam Darnold… I’ve said this before, but I’m going to repeat it again here today. I firmly believe Darnold scarred a large portion of this fan base, and Zach is paying a price for it. It wasn’t long ago we were reading reports of Sam “dropping dimes out in Cali” and lighting up practices and TC with his “generational” talent and arm. Then we saw him in games and couldn’t believe what we were watching. *disclaimer* I saw it, believed it, and got killed here for saying how horrible it was, but that’s another story. Now along comes Zach, fresh off that fiasco, drafted to a team situation he probably didn’t want to be with, and from Day one we judged him as if he had the same 3 years in the bank Sam did because we had no patience to go through this process all over again. I have no idea how Wilson is going to end up. I can’t get a feel for him yet. If I had to bet after last year I’d say not very good, but I’m not convinced of it yet. With Sam I knew after 5 games. Wilson still intrigues me.
  20. Please, don’t start tagging him. There is nothing peaceful about that guy, and the last thing we need here again are his drunken homophobic, racist rants. I know I’ll never remember all his humble brags, but here are a few I can, and also can do without… he claimed to be a long drive champion, world class softball player, triathlon champ, gourmet cook, world traveler, and high end litigator. All that, and he still found the time to post here hours on end, all the while looking to argue with everyone about anything. Quite possibly the most unlikeable personality I’ve ever come across on a message board, and that’s saying a lot.
  21. So… I’ve gone longer without a cigarette today than the two hours it took @Dunnie to realize he couldn’t stay away from JN, and I’m not even trying to quit.
