  1. I don't understand how a team supposedly built around running can have no placekicker and a terrible defense usually run first teams win by specials and defense. There's no plan to run when you're down 21 at halftime this whole "running game looking great" that's good news if they were trying to win games in 1965 this team will go as far as Zach's completion percentage takes them
  2. Football is entertainment and Zach at least is entertaining people in the summer Men and milfs alike. Enjoy the good times because Lord knows they are not going to entertain us in the fall Zach needs to make this exponential leap forward for the team to have any chance the AFC is loaded and so is the division we will see if his time was spent wisely this summer He's gotta become like Joe Montana or this team will lose their first 10 games
  3. the case could be made that Fant is better at left tackle than right Like when Becton went down, George Fant swapped and became this reliable pass protector Fant wasn't that great at right tackle, tbh. Becton's never played it in the pros (but has lots of experience at Louisville who had this crazy power/speed system that had OT swapping during drives) Fant is also coming off a knee injury. Not as serious as Becton's but had it happened earlier in the season, it probably would have been multiple games. yeah Max Mitchell might be a year away and the Riley Reiff lowball is also still sitting out there. Reiff and Fant could both be done medically and it wouldn't be surprising. Becton making it 17 games is a tough bet to make. if this ramble has a point it's that teams that have the better tackle duos in the league don't have all these questions before camp the guards and center are solid to good the tackles are huge questions and it all probably ends with Conor McDermott getting reps again
  4. Sanchez idea of fun was to go to Broadway and get his pictures taken with Kate Upton Darnold idea of fun was to make out with every feverish coed in Hackensack And now Zach's "idea of fun" which is sloppy, hugely Freudian and a little bit petty (side discussion: did he really have to bang Dax's mom? Like that was an appropriate response to bro code violation? It was scorched earth. He could have taken the high road, as unfunny as that would have been) But yeah every time someone like me or Warfish says "gee I wish he could be better at football" and each time the "Boyz will be Boyz" brigade storms in to defend the quarterback's right to a private life Do we hear anything about Josh Allen's private life? That stuff is distractions. To quote rockys trainer mick, Women weaken legs before a fight. Is Zach's ridiculous personal life really going to help him find the open man? "It does not hurt" appears to be the consensus around here. I guess we'll find out. At least he's being entertaining off the field, since he can't do it on the field Smash cut to that week 8 trade for another swordsman, Jimmy G. His literal dating of porn stars is the next logical step for this reality show franchise The curse of Namath continues. Just once they should draft a qb based more on football potential and less on personal charisma.
  5. Sanchez Darnold Now Zach If Jets qbs cared as much about reading defenses as they do about getting their dick wet, this team would be champions every year It should be noted that here we are at the peak of Jets 2022 enjoyment. Before the injuries and the 9 losses in a row to start the season Last year the peak was feeney chugging beers Enjoy the jokes, fellow Jets fans It's all downhill from here
  6. We can attack the source all day but bottom line is that Saleh had the worst defense in franchise history. That's no good. All the excuses about injuries or whatever, he's supposed to be a defensive coach.
  7. Oedipus Zach In before he puts his eyes out
  8. the point of taking a franchise QB high is that they don't need a perfect roster to win games. They are the franchise QB Yes Jackson and Allen would be better draft picks because they are better players. Would they have met their full potential? maybe not but better than Sam Darnold to be sure. the best move would have been to stick at 6, take Quenton Nelson who everyone knew was a 10 year All Pro and keep the 3 2nd round picks
  9. put it this way 0 is just as likely as 10 honest question how many wins do you predict Fapono
  10. This is an interesting idea and the math checks out as the 5 mil Carolina is paying Mayfield roughly equates to the 3.5 they are paying Flacco plus the 2.5 for Mike White - (other Baker numbers, CLE absorbs 10.5, Mayfield takes a haircut for 3) only problem is the Jets, like most NFL teams, don't let the QB's compete. They coronate a QB over a particular offseason the signing of Joe Flacco was a gutless move that prevents this kind of gamble. I'll never understand that "mentor" backup QB nonsense. If Mark Brunell, i mean, Joe Flacco plays the season is screwed. how is that worth 3.5 Million?
  11. what if complaining about the Jets is how I enjoy it?
  12. Because 0 is possible as well for the record I predict 5 wins just enough for Vegas to clean everyone out on the Season Over
  13. not like Zach who had that great win against *check notes* UCF in the Boca Raton Bowl in 2020 no no wait - I meant the Hawaii Bowl in 2019 against Hawaii. What's that? BYU lost the Hawaii Bowl? Holy hell. Well then i meant the famous Idaho Potato Bowl against Western Michigan in 2018. I kid, I kid, his real signature win was against USC in 2019 vs Kedon Slovis.
  14. I predicted 5-12 in Warfish's thread yesterday. 3 is realistic as is 7. those are the realistic negative and positive outcomes. they won 2 the year before and 4 last year. 5,6,7 is about the neighborhood of "realistic improvement" 3 and 4 are realistic "going sideways" outcomes, especially looking at the schedule. this board is all about 9-8 and a wildcard - that's hopeful - a rare positive outlier (especially because the wildcard in the AFC is going to need 11). That's like me saying they aren't going to win a single game and go 0-17, the rare negative outlier. That could happen too, with a couple of key injuries. But i suspect this team is better than last year's and will steal some wins they shouldn't *OUTSIDE OF THE DIVISION*. i don't know if science crosses over into politics on Max's board but this claim that the CC predictions are wrong, is in fact, wrong what's next buddy proof the earth is flat? btw this only strengthens my resolve that the Jets are going to be awful, when the flat earthers are thinking 12 wins and a AFC Championship
  15. Yeah the Jets did improve. But so did every other team in the afc This year's team is better but this years schedule is harder. It's a wash The Jets win 5 games this year that's improvement. One more than last year
  16. Ruckert played in the senior bowl and has not done anything since. That was late January Yeah he will probably be fine But you did not even know he was hurt. That's the problem with Jets fans predicting 10+ wins: we don't hear the bad news because we don't want to
  17. Jeremy Ruckert has plantar facsiatis (I don't know how to spell it) in the foot from the senior bowl. He missed the combine, his pro day and Ota. Cj sprained his mcl in the playoffs and also did not participate in the Ota. He also tore his Achilles the year before. Only Tyler Conklin got run with Zach. The Jets say both guys will be ready to go and perhaps they will be. but the Jets say a lot of things.

  19. while this is true of UFC main events and Super Bowls the season over unders are notorious sucker bets and are designed to attract homer over action, as much as possible I think it was @jgb who mentioned this the other day, if you add up all the season win totals for all 32 teams it's more wins than is technically possible. They have a real number from their models and they add 0.5 or 1 or 1.5 to that number and they are inviting fans to make long-term, low information bets based on what they hope happens. it also doesn't account for Ties aka the green spot on the roulette wheel
  20. I don't see them bringing in any real competition for ZW, ever. They might trade him for picks one day but this scenario where Zach Wilson has to earn his starting job is a fantasy.
  21. it's a homer prediction to predict 2 division wins when they haven't won a division game for 3 years. but aside from that you're making a ton of sense and I basically agree with all of it. where we disagree is that they are more likely to steal games up to 8 than they are getting screwed by bad luck and ending up at 3. Those outcomes seem equally plausible. leaving the average outcome somewhere in the 5-6 win neighborhood. They are a young team, relying on youth at too many key spots.
  22. Currently Ruckert and CJ are hurt. Conklin is the only one healthy oh, but they will be ready by training camp and week 1 for sure. Right? just like how Becton had a 4 week injury. Look we agree the team got better. But the schedule got harder and we don't know how the injuries are going to break. this scenario where they wildly outperform the vegas numbers is possible it's also an extreme outlyer there's also the outlyer that no one is healthy, the turf monster gobbles up half the team and we're picking top 5 again Zach Wilson is of course key to all this. And he didn't make it through 17 games last year. Joe Flacco time is coming and it's going to be painful if you don't remember anything from this rant, ask yourself this: if the Jets are realistically going to be favored in like 3 of these games, why is predicting them for 3 wins so negative?
  23. He's got short 32 inch arms he can't play lt Also if we read this article carefully, it says drafting sauce at 4 is dumb too
  24. If the Jets are as injured as they were the last few years, 3 wins is very realistic This 7-8 win stuff is like a best case scenario Everything has to be break just right for the Jets to sniff 500 Since when has that happened? A bet on Jets good luck is a Homer bet
  25. I'm not going to go point by point as I'm on a phone and when I was born these things had rotary dials But to answer the last question 1st I see like 5-6 wins barring a huge year from Zach. It really is a direct coorelation between his completion percent and win total. I see like 59-60 from ZW which is both a great improvement and not enough to move the dial To your broader point what happens in past years does in fact have relevance. The fact that the pats have run a successful program for two decades informs the patriots of 2022. Even without TB12 that team blew the Jets out in 2021 It's not like science but these guys getting on a plane, flying to Denver where the air is thinner and playing an NFL game can be informed by the past head to head record. Seattle for example is a 3000 mile road trip to the leagues 2nd loudest stadium The past loudness informs the future loudness etc. It's not perfect agreed but it's the only data we have. It's not a fluke they've never won in Philly. It's history. It does not repeat but sometimes it rhymes
