  1. Would Eli To The Jets Be A Possibiity?

    Eli isn't qualified to be a Jets QB. For starters, he's been to the playoffs, which is an automatic disqualifier - but more importantly, he hasn't been universally rejected by the other 31 teams in the league. Once that happens, he might have a chance to suit up in green and white.
  2. Jets enter top 10

    We just need another 218lb safety/linebacker hybrid to finish implementing Todd Bowles' defense.
  3. Amari Cooper

    Yeah, no doubt. But I watched about 5 minutes of last night's game and saw Amari drop two catchable balls. I also watched him drop a couple against the Jets. I don't know how these statisticians define a dropped pass, but his hands are complete garbage.
  4. Amari Cooper

    Amari Cooper has terrible hands.
  5. Time to bench Mo for the season

    Christopher Johnson would be reasonable in asking why Maccagnan gave a contract to a player who, since his college days, was known to be a dog. And I don't think that's a road that Maccagnan wants to go down...
  6. The Board Just Got Very Funny

    Maccagnan has done a decent job of filling the bottom half of the roster with capable backup types. The top half, however, continues to be amongst the worst in the league. There's literally not a position outside of SS, FS, and TE that can't be upgraded and that is troubling.
  7. This is the time of the year where guys like Manish and Cimini will spread the false narrative that Todd Bowles risks "losing the locker room" by playing Hack or Petty because "it's clear in practice that McCown is outplaying them." And then we go 6-10 and end up with the 9th pick in the draft and end up picking a blocking TE from Penn State because he'll compliment Austin Seferian-Jenkins' game quite well and we'll all collectively wonder why we're such a sorry franchise.
  8. You're right, drafting them has clearly been the better option.
  9. McCown a great addition

    Great! He'll definitely help us get to the promise land of six wins.
  10. This Will Create A Long Thread

    Aaron Rodgers didn't have to relearn how to throw a football. He was an ear-thrower in college because that's the way he was taught told hold the ball in Jeff Tedford's spread/quick passing attack, which theoretically allowed him to have a quicker release. It wasn't "natural" for him and so he stopped doing it in the pros. All he did was he change where he held the ball prior to his throws, which is a tweak and not a complete tear down. Darnold's windup is bizarre and will cause him some problems. I know he's been working to shorten his motion, but sans a complete teardown, I don't know how much better it will get. I do agree that he's plenty accurate, even with his stupid windup. Some guys (Philip Rivers) have had success with strange deliveries, but many others (Leftwich, David Carr, Tebow) weren't able to adjust their mechanics enough to be successful in the pros.
  11. This Will Create A Long Thread

    I don't understand the folks who are all-in on Sam Darnold. If you have to re-teach someone how to throw a football once they enter the NFL, they cannot be the #1 QB in the class. Josh Rosen is light years ahead of him.
  12. Is Macc setting up for FA QB?

    I kind of relish in the idea of our next QB being an ex-Patriot. Think Curtis Martin. Obviously, this is only ideal if the player is good.
  13. Is Macc setting up for FA QB?

    Would you be opposed to signing Garopollo? He's only 25 and wouldn't command Cousins money, although I can easily see him getting $18-20 million/year.
  14. Is Macc setting up for FA QB?

    The fact that Belichick traded away most of his QB's should tell you everything about what he really thought of them. He was offered a #1 for Garopollo and and didn't pull the trigger; that makes me think that he looks at him as a notch above the Cassell's/Hoyer's/Mallet's of the world.
  15. It's amazing that people thought an average college QB would be a good pro. It's so rare...
  16. PFF on Mo Wilk vs Jax...yikes

    I can't wait for this slug to be cut.
  17. Mods this is a personal attack!
  19. Warfish is the Todd Bowles of JetNation.
  20. How much does Blake Bortles suck?

    He's the worst QB I've ever seen. They protect him by not letting him throw much, but when he has the opportunity, he's missing guys by 10-12 yards.
  21. Bowles is a moron but this is pretty funny.
  22. Jets fans getting a bad rap

    Nobody wants to leave NYC more than me and I was not trying to imply that NYC was a "better" place to live than any of the cities I listed. All of the things I stated were not meant to support how great NYC is, it was simply to highlight that there's more to do in NYC than in most football markets. I lived in Buffalo for four years and there's just not as much to do there as there is in NYC but the quality of life was arguably much better.
  23. Jets fans getting a bad rap

    Yeah, you're right. Clearly the offering of things to do in Cleveland, Buffalo, Green Bay, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Tampa Bay, Detroit, etc. is on par with New York City. Nothing like going to Kansas City for the weekend to watch Friday night Pro Hockey, Saturday night Basketball, and then Sunday football at Arrowhead! I remember flying into Chicago, driving 4 hours up to Green Bay to watch Hamilton in the Park in December. That was the best weekend I've ever had.
  24. Jets fans getting a bad rap

    I think you completely misinterpreted the purpose of this thread. The NY Jets aren't good and there's every reason for fans to not show up. There are a million of other things to do in the NY Metro area on a Sunday that can be better spent than watching bad football. On any given Sunday, New Yorkers may be out in the Hampton's or the Jersey Shore, at a musical/play on Broadway, spending the day in Central Park, or heading upstate for a day trip to the Catskills. It's really EASY to be turned off by bad football and turn your attention to a myriad of other things the region has to offer. But instead, fans still showed up, which is more than can said for the two teams in LA that have more going for them than the NY Jets do. So feel free to spare us the high and mighty non-New Yorker contrarian position because I don't think anyone really cares.
  25. SHAME on Jet fans

    OP is suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.
