    The Seahawaks are screwed. Their QB is headed somewhere else next year and they have no 1st round pick and just gave huge money to their GM and coach. 

    They look to be headed down the 7-10 and worse type of team with a stop gap mid aged FA QB for the next 2-3 year till they can reset. 

    Poor JA

    Russell Wilson is under contract for two more years with a significant amount of dead money involved if they decide to trade him. He may want out, but it’s no guarantee. Far from it.

    The play calling has to be different when your QB is not operating efficiently and consistently putting the team in bad down & distance situations. When you stay ahead of the chains the offense opens up. The difference is the QB operating the offense efficiently, and Zack so far is not doing that.

    I completely understand, but still disagree. Zach should be getting more first and second down throws. That’s how a QB gets into a rhythm, connecting on those low pressure passes. Too many times they ran on first and second down putting the continue the drive or punt pressure squarely on Zach with his first throw of any given drive. There are going to be mistakes, but they need to help get him more comfortable and confident. That’s the only way you’re gonna be able to properly develop and evaluate him, not by keeping him in bubble wrap.

    The main problem IMO is that LaFleur only calls teh good plays for the other 12 QB's we've seen run the offense with efficiency. He likes to call it differently for Wilson, specifically, he calls teh bad plays with a much higher frequency.

    I get that this is the big new joke now, but also the play calling was more conservative with Zach in the lineup once again. I’m sure there’s more than one factor, such as the running game actually being effective, but it does seem like he’s not trusting Wilson as much as the other QBs. And that’s also understandable, but I think he’s doing the rookie a disservice. Rather than trying to protect him with the running game, he should try to get him into a more comfortable rhythm throwing the ball. It’s the only way he’s gonna learn.

    So far so good but as I've said when your prize head coach who is a D guy has his D be epically bad things change

    Waaaaaaay too early for any judgement on defense. First year converting from a 3-4 to a 4-3, primarily man coverage to zone, starting not just rookies, but late rounders and UDFAs, and getting some good play out of them! This is the installation and evaluation year. If nothing else, they’ve established some depth on the DL and at CB. Second year in the system should be a different story. It’s already been a little different story the last couple weeks.

    I tend to agree but I'm informed by posters who seem quite adamant that a shutdown corner isn't really needed/would be a misallocation of resources in Saleh's scheme.

    We’ll see what they eventually do, but teams running this defense generally put a premium on size, length, and tackling ability at CB over pure coverage skills. An Aaron Glenn would be wasted in this system.

    when did I say get a short yardage back in the first round ? I said get a complete back in the first round all the backs I mentioned above were all capable of gaining a short yardage first down. The jets currently do not have that back on the roster. We have a good young 3rd down back and 2 jags.

    This is one of the reasons why the RB position has been devalued league-wide. There’s no need for one complete back when you can rotate 2, 3, 4 guys who each bring something a little different to the table. The position suffers a high injury rate, so you need to carry four of them, anyway, why not have four guys who you want on the field? Fresher legs for the fourth quarter of the game and the season. RB also has the shortest career of any position in the game, and second contracts for RBs rarely work out. Even if you nail the pick, you’re looking at franchising the guy once or twice and then letting him walk. Not the greatest use of a first round pick. Then you have the fact that the teams who do rely on that one workhorse back generally fall apart when that guy inevitably gets hurt. 

    And I see Michael Carter playing a lot on first and second down, not sure why you’re pigeon-holing him as a third round back… ? Because he’s short? I like the Jets’ RB room. I’d look to resign Coleman and pretty much be done at the position.

    Our OL is 3/4 of the way built all of them have been playing well except the RG position we do not have a short yardage back on this football team and if you guys and the guys that repped your post can't see that then I'm really wasting my time here.

    You don’t spend a first round pick on a short yardage back, though. You build the line and hand it to your UDFA, 240lb FB.

    RB by committee is when you get guys off the street and hope to find lighting in a bottle. That's why we have Ty Johnson and Tevin Coleman  and Drafted Michael Carter none of which is capable of gaining a damn yard on 4th and one. How many times early in the year did we get stopped on 3 and 4th and one because we really don't have a good RB ? Carter has proven to be a great receiving 3rd down type but hes not the guy for that situation nor are the other 2

    I think you build the OL to get you that yard.

    endlessly available and endlessly contributing nothing like the guys I mentioned above. Sure some 3 and 4th round guys pan out just like any other position but its rare and they usually are just flashes in the pan. if there is a back like the ones I mentioned above and you need a RB especially with a young QB finding his way you take him every time IMHO.

    Terrell Davis is the only guy on that list that matters, a sixth round pick turned into a superstar in the Shanahan offense. A thing that happens in this offense with regularity. And these guys understand that.

    Agree no way this team targets a CB or a Safety that early unless they are nuts. We have good young corners that will develop once we get more consistent pressure on the QB. This team is in dire need of LB's and true #1 WR and a RB. That being said, I'm not sure yet what's going to be available in the draft because I really have not been following the college game but I don't fall into that "high value first round pick" bullsh*t . If you have a player available when you pick that you feel can make a huge Impact and value as a "Sure Thing" you take his ass. We also have cash to grab a few good players via FA and FWIW this team had better take the next step next year with the right additions and start challenging for a playoff spot but most of that falls on the QB whether or not they can take that next step as well

    Taking premium positions with premium picks is not bull****. It’s a necessity. You just don’t take RBs or Safeties or Guards that high. I’d consider a TE, but only if that TE appears to be a true #1 WR type like Pitts. The reason you don’t take those other positions is because they’re easily replaceable. Up that high, it’s QB, Edge, LT, WR, and maybe a man CB or beast M/SLB. This draft should give them that Edge. LB and WR would be the other premium needs, but this draft doesn’t look like it’s going to have those positions in the top ten.

    Only problem is there’s no LB TE or WR worth drafting with a top pick in this draft. If you’re saying don’t draft Hamilton or Stingley who the heck we gonna draft lol? I guess it’d have to be OT Neal then. Go do research on the draft and assign player names to these picks. The more I look at it the more I think our 2nd 1st round pick will def be either Stingley or Hamilton 

    Yeah, like I said, I haven’t looked at next year’s draft yet. I think what you’re describing is what might lead JD to try to trade the lower first back for a package that includes a 2023 first.

    If giving my good faith impression of the odds of likelihood of Jets players being a success is "trolling" then I'm happy to be under the bridge. People can find an alternate route across, if they wish using the ignore feature.

    This reply reminds me of the guy who pulled Zach’s helmet off yesterday and then raised his hands to the ref as if to say, “wasn’t me!”
