  1. Pretty sure JD offered less per year than the $10M he’s making this year. I really don’t see Maye making much more than that. He’s a good or better safety. That’s not worth eight figures unless he also really hypes himself aggressively at every opportunity.
  2. The punishment will be proportional to the negative publicity and public outrage. It’s quiet right now but, if there is ever a trial, it could get very seriously ugly. I don’t think Goodell is currently in a position where he could honestly say what’s gonna happen. Also, the Texans are voluntarily keeping him inactive. I find it odd that he’s not already on the commissioner’s list, and suspect that might be a handshake deal with the league, the team, and the player - and that if he’s traded he’d have to continue his inactive streak. Watson stepping on the field would certainly ramp up t
  3. How many of your favorite vegetables are wrapped in bacon?
  4. The Jets need to score opening drive points this week, preferably a TD. Being the only team in the league with no first quarter points is concerning. They’re putting their rookie QB in a bad situation every week. I’m most concerned that LaFluer is simply in over his head. With this extra week to prepare, he needs to have something prepared.
  5. The most hilarious thing about this post is that you don’t realize that this is exactly what the Jets are doing right now. They fired their coach, then the new staff decided to trade their current highly drafted QB for picks and take a new QB high. The only difference is that Arizona is in Year Three of the plan, and the Jets are just getting started. First five games in Arizona? 1-3-1. If you were a Cards fan back then, you would’ve been crying for everyone’s head. You know, like you do here. And it wouldn’t’ve let up, because they only won five games that year. And then you still woul
  6. What else am I gonna be doing? I’d like the NFL to move to pure prime time now that I’ve moved to Mexico. 1:00 on a Sunday? I’ve got women in one or two articles of clothing to talk to.
  7. I’d think that was funny if my phone didn’t have 68,000 unread emails.
  8. I get that it’s not the popular opinion. To me, Geno was overly sensitive, immature, and introverted. I can understand that. I can empathize. Jamal, on the other hand, is something of a sociopath. I wish him failure.
  9. I’m watching this game rooting for Geno, but hoping the Steelers score more against Jamal.
  10. Just logged in to see the reaction to that batted pass bouncing off of Jamal’s belly. Not disappointed.
  11. JD has been realigning the finances. He’s not afraid to pay for QB, OL, WR, or Edge, while also being correctly averse to paying Safeties, TEs, and RBs. IMHO, Maye is currently overpaid. I get it, because the secondary looked like a wasteland this season, but paying Maye eight figures isn’t sustainable. He won’t be on the team next year for that reason. That’s why he’s being shopped now.
  12. The Jags in their lame black uniforms reminds me of how lame the Jets’ black uniforms are.
  13. I’m watching the morning game then officially heading to the beach.
  14. LaFluer’s responsibilities go further than that but, even if they didn’t, it’s his job to get the QB/offense going. Being the only team in the league that has yet to score a point in the first quarter is a genuine concern.
  15. I’d be happy for Geno if he played well and won some games but, after that first drive last week, he looked like a QB who you can rattle. On that team, he’s in a position where he needs to continually put points on the board just to keep them in the game. That’s not a great combination.
  16. The way picks are generally valued, a fourth in the middle of the round in 2022 would be worth more than the last pick in the third in 2023. A 4th and a 5th would be more value, still. And there’s no way Maye would generate a third round comp pick. He’d have to become the league’s highest paid safety in free agency, and that isn’t happening.
  17. Disagree. I think LaFluer was thrown into the deep end before he was ready. I still believe he can be good, but he has a lot of work to do himself. As the OC, he needs to be the guy who gets Zach over this mental block.
  18. Safety is one of the lowest valued positions in the league, making tagging a safety one of the cheapest tags. The Jets did that because the secondary looked like a black hole and the tag was affordable. The third round comp picks are return for losing free agents getting somewhere in the $20M/year range. I think Maye would be lucky to land a deal that nets him $10-11M/year, which probably has you looking at a fifth round pick in 2023. Getting a fifth or better in 2022 would be better value. Really, maybe even a sixth would be better. As others have said, qualifying for comp pic
  19. There are a lot of problems on offense, and it starts with LaFluer. He’s a rookie coordinator, and I thought they tried to prop him up nicely by having both a rushing and passing coordinators under him, but the tragic loss of Gregg Knapp has been a tragic loss for the offense. Rather than overseeing the entire offense, LaFluer has been forced to handle the majority of the passing game, too. And sure, as OC he should be able to handle that, but they obviously felt otherwise when putting the staff together. He needs to figure it out in a hurry. The next big problem is that Wilson has been
  20. Maye’s a good or better starting caliber safety. A good interior OL or TE would be fair compensation. Like I said, though, I think he’ll be looking for draft compensation.
  21. He’s unlikely to sign a contract that nets a third. Maybe a fourth, but I’d think probably a fifth. And this would be in 2023, and only if the Jets sign at least one less free agent than they lose this offseason. I’d prefer JD trade him for a starter at G, C, or TE, but he likes his draft picks. Be interesting to see what he gets for him, especially if he has a couple teams bidding.
