  1. Meanwhile, Vegas has the Giants up to 7.5 wins.  I would imagine some of that has to do with playing in the NFC but that still a full 2 games (admittedly just a gambling projection) better than us.  But both teams were awful last year (picked 4th and 5th overall) and both teams had great drafts.  The Jets probably had a better offseason overall than the Giants but both teams did make major improvements.  But they Giants are projected 2 games better than us.  Crazy!
    Btw, all of these lines have the half point in them so I guess it's a "whole win step" (e.g. our next option from 5.5 wouldn't be 6, but rather 6.5).

    Previous year's W-L is not always highly predictive, but it's all we really have
    And meanwhile, the AFC East has improved as well, for the most part, so 2021 W-L, so you could argue the AFC West and East are both a likely stronger than their 2021 records suggest.

  2. Most coaches get 2 shots to be a head coach, if your 1st one is a total cluster, you maybe have 1 more.
    Anybody watch "The Afterparty" ?

    Even though we only get one shot in life, we all get that one shot... twice.
  3. brian flores might be right or he might be wrong but how he expects to continue working in the nfl after filing this suit is beyond me - if a team hires him it concedes that all decisions going forward will be cleared through him - does any team want the head coach to run the entire organization? because that’s what happens if you hire him - perfectly understand why miami fired him - oh and like i said he could be right about hiring practices but boy did he blow up his own ship trying to prove it

    I dont think he expects to work in the NFL again. Everything he's said since was along the lines if 'thos was too important not to do.'

    But I do think some owners would still give him a shot (f allowed) in spite of it all. sh*t, Al Davis would have hired him because of it all. He was good in Miami with a sh*t situation due to the actions of the owner. As a Jets fan, I was happy to see him go!

    not sure I always understand this line of thinking.   Whose says minority players want to become coaches for one?  
    that being said, the 35% on coaching staffs should over time turn into HCs.
    and a league with 70% minority players has about 35% on coaching staffs and less than 10% HCs.
    Are you saying they're in on the 'interview to satisfy the Rooney rule but don't hire me' process? Because they're interviewing, and complaining when they don't get interviewed. That tells me they want to be coaches.

    I think most owners, if there was a slam-dunk candidate that was black, would hire him. They used their millions/bns to buy a sports team because they're competitive.

    I also think that a lot of these 70-year-old white men are more comfortable with white men, all else equal. As tye league ownership get younger I think it will improve.

    And I'm sure a few owners don't think black coaches are as capable as white coaches, just like they used to think that black QBs weren't capable (and some maybe still do). There's racism, just like in society. It's decreasing amongst people with open minds, or that get out of their echo chamber, but it's sure taking a long ass time.
  5. Nothing really cuts the legs out of the Class action lawsuit - Flores was brought in to interview with the Giants after they decided on Daboll, and a league with 70% minority players has about 35% on coaching staffs and less than 10% HCs. Which logically means that there are a lot of sham interviews going on.

    Then there's O'Connell getting a job with very little experience. If Josh McCown gets one this year, pssh.

  6. I grew up on LI (Huntington, western Suffolk) and was about 8 years old during the 'Summer of Sam" and even out there it was a big thing, in the Newsday headlines all the time, women getting their hair dyed and/or cut short, etc.

    I do think there was a stronger connection to NYC back then, especially in Huntington- basically all of our dads worked in the city, Huntington was where most north shore commuters wanted to live because it's the first/last stop on the electric line, you have to change to/from a diesel to get to/from anywhere east of there - for some reason this seemed like a bigger deal prior to the 80s, not sure if something changed. Also, LI business centers like Hauppauge, Melville, Garden City etc. weren't what they are now, if you worked in Finance or other industries you really couldn't work for a large firm on LI.

    It was a crazy summer in general in the city (blackout, bicentennial, financial crisis, etc.).

  7. The NFL should do one game after the super bowl called the 'no refs game' where there are no refs and see what happens
    So everyone can hold, PI, release downfield prior to a pass, all formations are fine, everyone can line up wherever they want, etc.? I think they have that league already, it's called middle school flag football.

  8. Full time refs is the only way that I can see making the on-field officiating better.

    Why shouldn't refs be looking at film all week leading up to their game assignment? Reviewing personnel packages, tendencies, situational line splits, blocking assignments, receiver behaviors, etc., etc., etc. Prepare so they know 90% of what they'll see Sunday (Thu, Mon, etc.). Same as coaches, players, broadcasters, reporters and everyone else who makes their living off of this enormous business.

  9. Bull Durham may be the best, Pride of the Yankees is probably my favorite just because it has stuck with me since seeing it as a 10 year old or so (1970s).

    Best football movie is probably Brian's Song or Rudy, but football movies in general are kind of lacking.

    Best sports movie of all time, IMO, is Hoop Dreams. Non-documentary Raging Bull.

  10. Haha I See T-Mac now (jumbalayajet) his face is right next to the sign with the mug of beer. And baby Joirsey jet is in there too. Lol senior picked a fight with Max in the parking lot in front of his kids like 15 years ago
    Haven't heard the name JoiseyJet in a loooong time. Seems like he would have to be lurking, or around on some message board somewhere - seems like he felt his contributions were just too important not to share.

  11. I think "what more could they have done to help Zach in his rookie year"?'
    3 things stand out:
    1) Looking back, it was malpractice for Douglas not to address RG and Center.  He needed to overpay to make something happen there.  I and many others knew it at the time and we were right.
    2)  It was also a bad idea to hire a rookie 33 year old OC who looks in over his head at the moment.
    3)  Finally, what was the downside to bringing in a veteran backup QB who can guide this kid when he makes a mistake and comes back to the sideline?
    1) I will agree that JD could have done more for the OL, but he didn't expect Alex Lewis to retire and Cam Clark's spinal cord injury. He could have accidentally drafted a RG who would have played better than Van Roten. Which RG were we overpaying? It's not like he ignored the OL. He traded up for AVT, and that is looking good so far. He also signed Moses as a hedge for if/when Becton got injured. 
    2) He does not look like he is in over his head at the moment. His rookie QB is missing high percentage short throws, and the right side of the OL is not helping which circles back to JD. That has nothing to do with the play calling. Do I think that LaFleur is doing a bang up job? No, he has a long way to go, but I do not see him being over his head.
    3) He could have brought in a veteran back up QB, but not sure what difference that would have made. Darnold had McCown and Flacco, and that really didn't make much of a difference.

    Can't disagree with any of that.

    I don't know, I look at NE and McDaniel spoon-feeding Mac Jones with some success, at least in terms of getting accustomed to the pro game without having a fire drill 40 times a game. They call plays they let him get I to a rhythm - I don't see the high percentage short throws to TE and RB that you're seeing, at least not in the 1st Q or even half.

  12. Unless Wilson is out for the year I wouldn’t get too excited
     
    Seahawks have a bye in 3 weeks.  Wilson will be back afterwards.  I mean Dalvin Cook is trying to play RB with a high ankle sprain and Gronk is trying to come back with broken ribs and a punctured lung
    Difference is this supposedly won't straighten or heal without a solid 6 weeks give or take in a fingertip splint, which, with the middle finger anyway, wouldn't allow you to throw a football.

    So if you can't throw with the tip at a 45 degree angle and it won't straighten without a continuous splint, it's hard to say he'll be playing soon. I was thinking surgery to short cut the process but it looks like the tendon has to heal.
  13. Geno was exactly Geno, He has always been able to throw the ball and has always been able to look good if kept clean from the rush.
    He also always finds ways panic when rushed and finds ways to make the huge error to potentially loose the game.
    What error? I didn't see the all-22 but Joe Buck said Lockett tripped after Geno let go of the ball. Not even the magical Brady can change the throw after he lets go of it.

  14. He’s getting intercepted 
    Ha - knew someone would post this.

    Geno played well. Receiver got tripped after he let go of the ball, nothing he could do about that. If not we may be talking about a comeback win.

    Hopefully he returns to form and increases our draft stock.

  15. How did Herndon net a 4th round pick and Gilmore goes for a 6th rounder 2 years from now. Insane! 
    It was Herndon and a 6th for a 4th.

    Also Herndon is 25 and healthy, Gilmore is 31 coming off quad surgery.
    and... Herndon is cheaper :-)
    I'd just like to point out that Joe Douglas got a 4th for Herndon and Belichick got a 6th for Gilmour.
    ^^^^^
    Herndon with a solid 0 catches on the year so far 
    Yeah nobody is saying it was a better deal for MIN than Gilmore will be for CAR.

  16. RIP Savage.
    The guy knew how to disagree without becoming disagreeable. It's becoming a lost art. 
    The first thing I thought of when I saw the thread. We went back and forth on Martin a few times, never was anything other than a classic sports argument.

    I always respected Savage and he I, even though we were diametrically opposed in our opinions of Curtis. This is very sad news, and a loss for the Jet fan community. RIP my friend.

  17. There were reports that he was getting fired.  He came from Cleveland with an influential owner calling him all kinds of names, shlt on the Jets because he was paranoid and was failing in NE.  
    Pete Carrol never had a losing season.  He had 2 winning seasons and then was fired after an 8-8 season
    Carroll didn't do a good job in NY or NE. On ME he inherited a Parcells roster, Parcells went 11-5 and won the division, and Carroll proceeded to go 10-6, 9-7 then 8-8. That's gonna get you fired.
  18. We’re still doing this with the “system?”
     
    Jones is better than trash heap bums like Matt Cassell and Ryan Mallett but he’s not good enough.  Only hope is if Belichick gets Jimmy G back in a trade and he stays healthy
    Jimmy G will be a backup on his next team.
