  1. 100%. I can't wait to see Leonard Williams, Nathan Shepard, and Henry Anderson deftly positioning themselves in front of TV cameras this Friday to run "wind sprints" in the 3rd quarter of the 1st pre-season game...
  2. The greatest example of Woody Johnson's ineptitude is from Hard Knocks, when he was trying to converse with Mike Westhoff about David Clowney, and Woody tried making suggestions like "can't he be a gunner on punts?" and Mike Westhoff is basically seen grinding his teeth like a old cranky husband who's about to throw his wife through a plate glass window for daring to speak to him without first asking permission. Woody, for the sake of all that is holy, stay in the UK forever.

    Who is the best jets beat reporter?

    They're all terrible, but the ones who focus on the feel-good off-season fluff stories are especially horrendous, given the Jets track record over the past 50 years. "Dee Milliner won't get injured because he does Yoga now" "Buster Skrine is in the best shape of his life because he teaches an aerobics class" "Austin Seferian Jenkins is primed for a breakout year because he stopped drinking for three months" "Chad Pennington's arm strength isn't an issue because he fixed his footwork" "Dexter MacDougle actually worked out this off-season, so he's not fat anymore and will be good this year" They can all suck it.
  4. Well first of all, I'm not condoning the taunting or name calling. I haven't called her any names, or taunted her, or claimed that she's a liar, so I don't know why you would insinuate that. What I am saying, however, is that since she's the one who made the accusation (the positive claim) against Joe Benigno, the burden of proof is on her to prove the claim to be true and not on Joe Beningo to prove that it is false, as it's essentially impossible for him to prove a negative (unless he can prove that her claim is an impossibility or that he has evidence of absence). Just because this claim hasn't been disproved by Joe Benigno does NOT automatically make the claim against him to true. As Carl Sagan said, "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." Hitchen's Razor also states that if the burden of proof to support a positive claim is not met, the opponent does not need to argue further to dismiss the claim - it is fair for it to be assumed false. The gist of my point is that I'm not going to burn the guy at the stake until the accusations against him are corroborated with evidence. He has a right to face his accuser, as she has the right to hold the accused responsible for his alleged actions. Let's wait and see before we burn either of them at the stake.
  5. Until she positively proves that she's been victimized, she's not a victim.
  6. Well, uh....yeah...did you expect Brunell to stand on the table for Sanchez while Brunell played for the Saints?

  8. Mark Brunell swore that Mark Sanchez was the right guy, too. Josh McCown banked $10mm for the right to be Darnold's babysitter, so he's got plenty of incentive to heap praise on the dude.

    Idea For a 4-3 Front (Occasional)

    I'm having flashbacks of Rex Ryan lining Quinton Coples up at cornerback and now I want to microwave a kitten.
  10. 2018 will be a successful year for Jamal Adams if there aren't three Jets defensive linemen with more interceptions than him.
  11. Those middle-of-the-pack odds of Todd Bowles being fired say more about Jets ownership being thrilled with mediocrity than they do about Todd Bowles being a good coach.

    Anyone here ever quit drinking?

    I had the same exact feeling about weed as you. Never liked the feeling of smoking or the side effects (dry eyes, dry mouth, feeling brain dead, etc). However, a few months ago I was introduced to edibles and it's been a game changer for me. I buy the edibles (branded "Grateful Gummies") that are made in California, and they're just fantastic. I sleep way better now and drink way less than I did previously, and get a completely different (better) high than when I smoke. It's obviously not as social as drinking beer, but if you're looking to relax at the end of the day without having a hangover for the next day or two, it's the way to go. Also, a 30mg gummy (which is roughly two servings/highs for me) is roughly $6 each, so it's way more economical than drinking. I live in Manhattan and can drink $100 of booze in a couple of hours, easy. I still drink socially, but during the week if I'm home and looking for a relatively guilt-free reprieve, I'm taking an edible for sure.
  13. The last non-first round position player to make it to the Pro Bowl as a Jet was Richie f*cking Anderson in 2000. It'd be nice if we could maybe, just maybe, find some quality talent in rounds 2-7 more often than every 20 years. Note: Leon Washington and Justin Miller made it as kick returners..
  14. Opposing offensive linemen will spend all of 2018 digitally penetrating Darron Lee should we deploy him as an edge rusher.

    For the "Trade Teddy" guys.....

    I can't effectively argue with someone who doesn't listen and/or comprehend what I'm saying. My original post posed a question to you - a question that still hasn't been answered, so I'm at a loss. I've gone on to clarify my position through subsequent posts, which you have conveniently ignored in order to save some face, I'm guessing. You're NOT an idiot, Warfish, but you're definitely coming across as one when you purposely and consistently misrepresent other posters' statements to somehow make yourself appear smarter than everyone else...It's a tired act, to say the least, and does nothing to add value to the board.
