  1. Every team out there is looking for the dominant offensive line now. A premium has been placed on the position more than ever because: Elite rushers are not just edge-guys anymore, you're seeing interior DL getting upfield and disrupting the backfield whereas, in the past, interior DL were "space eaters" and hole cloggers. Also, QB's are expensive and losing one to injury could (and usually does) mean an end to a team's season. And then there's the old reasons: more time for the QB to find a target, more time for a WR to finish a route, more wide-open rushing lanes, etc. Its virtually impossible to have an effective offense with a below-average OL. And the truly elite OL don't move. Teams lock them up for a decade or more once they find one. And there are teams that are perennially looking to improve their lines (Jets, Giants, Dolphins, Colts) which creates a high market value. So yeah, you draft a guard early if he's the closest thing to a slam-dunk. Centers can usually go later because teams generally only carry one starting-caliber center, meaning there is a greater pool of centers available coming from the college ranks.
  2. at 82,500 seats, we actually have the biggest, not second biggest stadium.
  3. Disagree. They stuffed the box from the second half on. Even bellicheck said stopping Henry was their priority at halftime.
  4. There will be a good center to be had in the 3rd for sure. Not sure you get a starting tackle there though.
  5. No, this is what makes Gase Bad: The Jets offense is ranked DEAD LAST in the NFL. Fewest Yards from scrimmage. Second fewest points scored (Redskins). The Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins, and Cincinnati Bengals all had statistically better years offensively than the New York Jets. The Steelers outranked them with third and fourth string QB's. The Dolphins and Bengals beat them outright. Of the teams we beat this year NOT ONE had a winning record. Two had no wins until we played them. One will end the season with one of only two wins being against the Jets. The only successful squad, and the only reason this team was even moderately successful, was the defensive side of the ball. The defense, decimated by injuries, wound up ranked 7th overall and 2nd against the run. Gase had absolutely nothing to do with Greg William's defense. His 22 year old QB had to intervene and tell him to stop the nonsense plays and stick to what works. There was an improvement in execution immediately thereafter. That's alarming.
  6. CJ is better than his brother if you ask me. It seems he DID become aware of the team Dysfunction and removed the biggest offender, Mike M. Mike M. was on a short leash due to the fact he was unliked in Florham Park, then pissed away lots of money (again) and drafted a DT (again), which was inexcusable to CJ, who did the right thing by holding him accountable and firing him. Lots of people wanted Bell. Perfect check down for a young QB with no OL. At the end of the day you can't blame him for Mac's ineptitude and then blame him for firing Mac for his ineptitude. I'm not saying Chris Johnson is a great owner, I don't think anyone has a big enough sample size to figure that out yet, but I can tell you I definitely prefer Chris to Woody Johnson. He seems to have the pulse of the organization and isn't afraid to make real decisions.
  7. Lol my ass. I'm putting my kid through college right now and another in three years. Also I'm not a boomer...I'm 46. But I know when to show respect to a generation that worked harder, did more, got their hands dirty and improved the world by leaps and bounds. And if the present generation thinks their entitled to cheap college, remember most boomers din't go to college...they took on a trade. There are a ton of job openings for carpenters, heavy equipment operators, electricians, HVAC technicians, plumbers, elevator mechanics, etc. And no student loans to bear. But again, callouses and blisters are a mark of shame nowadays.
  8. Sign Trent Williams and Brandon Scherff and you can draft anybody you want.
  9. Lol. So, computers, cell phones, the internet, DNA mapping, Amazon.com, the artificial heart, Apple, Viagra, the USB port, the AED, civil rights legislation, women's equality in the workplace, Steven Spielberg (Jaws, E.T., Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Schindler's List, The Color Purple, and Saving Private Ryan), the sexual revolution, Prince and the Revolution, etc. etc. were "old, tired ways of thinking". They worked as roofers, landscapers, dishwashers and all the other jobs that are now "beneath" this generation. They put their kids through college, creating the most highly educated generation in U.S. history...which became the foundation for an incredible explosion of advances in technology, medicine and energy. But hey, you guys did do that fidget spinner thing, so that's cool, I guess.
  10. Gase didn't want him in the first place. Yet he's here. So I'm gonna go ahead and assume its up to management. And it doesn't make any sense to ignore his contract and cap hit.
  11. This is also a credit to the Pro Player scouting department. While the college scouts have been shaky, the Pro Player Department has been excellent. The number of no-names brought in that have done good to above-average jobs include: Burgess, Maulet, Compton, Hewitt, Crowder, Basham, Brass-balls Berrios, Brown, Canady, Copeland, Hairston, Langi, Lewis, Poole, V. Smith, Griffin. That's a huge chunk of the roster and each has been a solid contributor.
  12. Had zero effect on my credit score (which is excellent). But I had the same fear before following my friend who ceased payments the year prior.
  13. I was on the payment plan. I paid about half and then a buddy of mine told me he walked away without repercussions and he couldn't be happier. I did the same the following season and have no regrets (other than buying into the B.S. "its and investment" nonsense and pissing away a few grand).
  14. Hang in there SAR. I'm sure you can overcome that rage. So, as to the topic I "know nothing about". I was waitlisted for ten years before I got my season tix at Giants stadium. I had those seats for five years before the new stadium and the PSL. Which I bought because the waitlist disappeared and I was able to upgrade to the Lower Level. Awesome! Then, as the years went by, the season ticket holders around me began to change or dissappear. Different people were in those seats every week. I started looking into the secondary market and low and behold, I could buy basically the same seats i was sitting in every week at or below face value with no PSL. I ate the loss and now go to as many games as I see fit without having to pay for preseason games, PSL's and generally pay way below face value. So, fellow enraged "waitlister", the blocks of good seats once locked up by season ticket holders (like you and, formerly, me), are now available for sale. Anyone can sit in good seats without paying full value and PSL's, including opposing fans. The waitlist was a backlog of people trying to get into the stadium to regularly enjoy the home games. Now, there is no waitlist. There is no backlog. The secondary market is flooded with cheap tickets because of that. Finding a ticket for $6 was unheard of in Giants stadium. But here we are. The investment is worth it for you. Good. Its not for most others because financially it makes almost no sense, so that folks with less disposable income than you have ("quitters", I believe you called them), are no longer occupying the bulk of the seats. There's a reason the waitlist is gone, there's a reason the Jets haven't raised prices, and there's a reason there are a lot more seats available to opposing fans.
  15. All seats are available. So when I want to sit in the LL I can pick up those seats at less than face value. as can opposing fans. When those blocks were occupied by season ticket holders, only the cheap seats were available for people who didn't have season tickets. Now the expensive seats are easy to get without paying a PSL and the cheap seats are wide open. Cause and effect.
  16. Nope. The problem is plain as day. SEASON TICKET HOLDERS HAVE BEEN PRICED OUT. Sorry about the yelling. But regardless of what SAR says, there used to be a 10 year wait for Jets season tickets. That meant the stands were full of green and white fans and only a smattering of opposing fans that got seats on the secondary market got in. PSL's and high Ticket prices and $12 beers basically erased half the season ticket holders. Now you get what we got. cheap, empty seats that opposing fans can fill til their hearts' content.
  17. Lol how could they possibly RAISE ticket prices. Half the stadium is either empty or full of opposing fans. We may have the worst "home field advantage" of any team in the NFL.
  18. The reality is Darnold is a very young guy forced to learn a brand new offense in his second year in the NFL. The reality too, is that he struggles under pressure, tries to do too much and has at least 3 or 4 "panic passes" that often don't end well. He's got the brain and the arm and the mobility of an elite QB. He isn't one though. He can be, but he isn't at this point. The fact that he went to Gase to edit the playbook might be an indication that he doesn't really have much confidence in the "qb whisperer ". Hes neither a star or a bum. Hes a 22 yr old kid doing the best with what hes got. Let's see who he is at 25. Then I'll pass judgment.
  19. Let's see, he decided not to run the ball against one of the worst run defenses in league last week, then decided to spend an entire half running the ball against a team with Two undrafted rookie corners. Is say he's got one more season with his nose glued to the play sheet.
  20. That's because Gase can't adjust since he hasn't seen a play yet, just his little laminated play sheet. He's mesmerized by it.
  21. We can get Antonio Brown without giving up anything if we're looking for a self-centered POS.
