  1. Lamar Jackson..

    I couldn't agree with you more. I remember thinking that Vince Young was going to be the next Steve McNair or Donovan McNabb after watching him almost single-handedly lead Texas to victory in the Rose Bowl and I was ticked off when the Jets didn't pick him when they had the chance - and he wound up sucking. I had similar thoughts about Deshawn Watson thinking he could be really good - but I was a little more uncertain about him - because of how Vince Young turned out in the NFL. Again, the Jets pass on him and the Texans take him and he winds up lighting up the NFL right up until his season-ending injury. That's proof enough for me that you can just never tell.
  2. I'm not a big college football fan either. Truth be told, I don't even start paying attention to college prospects until about a month before the draft and I have no problem admitting that. I'm just hopeful that the Jets do whatever is necessary to come away with a LEGIT QB prospect out of the 2018 draft, as it has been said many times by a lot of people, that this is one of the deepest QB drafts in a number of years.
  3. That's correct - I thought it was pretty self explanatory. I'd really like to see the Jets come out of this draft with a legit starting caliber QB - no matter what the cost.
  4. I was going to add a poll just now, but I don't see the option to do it.
  5. O.k. The Jets have already won 4 games - more than most experts had anticipated. Realistically, the Jets could finish the season with anywhere between 4 and 7 wins in my estimation. Yes I realize this is very premature, particularly since we don't even know for sure all the QB's that are coming out this year - but I can't help but wonder, particularly after the way teams jumped up in the 2017 draft looking for QB's. Lets just play out this scenario knowing for sure, that all of the QB's that are seniors, will obviously be available in the 2018 draft Do the Jets stay put in the first round and take the best QB available that falls to them - or do the Jets package some picks together to move up into the the top 3 picks of the first round? Thoughts and speculation are welcome.
  6. Bowles Sees no Need to Play Young QB’s

    That's just it - there is no defending the pick, it's bad pick - period. Acknowledge your screw up and hold yourself accountable - but have the common sense to minimize the time and resources you sink into a guy that you know isn't going to pan out. That's what saavy, successful GM's do. All GM's make a bad pick here or there - but the smart ones minimize the damage and resources invested in them, by cutting their losses sooner rather than later. Mac hasn't figured that out yet - and he may never.

    Hackenburg should not have made the 53 man roster in my opinion. Maccagnnon made a bad QB pick in the 2nd round. He didn't pan out, cut your losses and move on - rather than waste a roster spot on him. Successful GM's acknowledge their mistakes and move on from them, they don't keep parading them around the locker room like a show-pony.
  8. Bowles Sees no Need to Play Young QB’s

    Yep, I can't argue with him.
  9. Thank you Vets!!!

    Happy Veterans day back to you JE1.
  10. Bowles Sees no Need to Play Young QB’s

    100% accurate and correct. There is absolutely nothing to gain by allowing McCown to keep starting. Once the Jets dropped below .500 - this team should have been handed over to Petty. Any other decision is counterproductive and not in the best interest of the team's future.
  11. Thank you Vets!!!

    No, we were home-ported out of Newport, R.I. during the time I was stationed there (1991-1993).
  12. I hope this kid (Hansen) hits the ground running.
  13. Thank you Vets!!!

    Thank you. It was an honor to serve my country during Desert Storm (1991 - 1993 on the USS Simpson (FFG-56) in the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf) In fact, I'm still serving now as a D.O.D. civilian, in the U.S. Merchant Marines here in the U.S. 7th fleet (the current hot zone) - just left Japan 3 days ago. My thanks go out to all the Veterans who served before me.
  14. Petty / Hack Timing

    This switch should have happened 3 weeks ago. Every week that McCown starts, just reiterates my point that much more. He can't go a game without throwing at least one pick - or fumbling the ball away - or both.
  15. Sounds to me like your more concerned with being on Gronk's jock then remembering what actually occurred during the game. Allen did a pretty good job against Gronk in that game and as another poster said, most of Gronk's catches and yardage came against our LB'ers in that game. Lupz27 is dead on about Allen's pick 6 - that was a game-changing impact play.
