  1. Just saw this. What a gut punch. Savage is one of the original OG Jets board posters here and at the "other" place back in the day. If there's a Ring of Honor for posters, Savage deserves a banner. RIP, man.
  2. There are rookies starting for their teams right now. Rookies with no offseason whatsoever. If he was that raw then he shouldn't have been drafted in the 2nd round.
  3. Better without Becton. Addition by subtraction. How did we not grab the guy with the drive and work ethic to break Iowa's hang-clean record? https://thespun.com/big-ten/iowa-hawkeyes/tristan-wirfs-hang-clean-record-iowa Not to mention this:
  4. I don't think it had anything to do with play calling, honestly. It was time. there wasn't any. Just like last year and the year before, the offense was limited due to terrible OL play. Even Tiki Barber couldn't stop talking about it. No holes for the run game, no time to get WR's into their routes. Eventual stacked box and free outside blitzes as TE's and RB's had no clue who to block (or how). We keep trotting out the same crap OL and expecting different results. Change head coach, still no offense. Chance Offensive Coordinator, still no offense. Change QB, no offense. Draft Carte
  5. Disagree. You adapt the scheme to fit the players, not the other way around. Problem is, we have a mixed bag at OL. McGovern and Van Roten are better suited to a zone scheme as they aren't road-grader type blockers. Becton, AVT and Moses are suited to the more classic, step-punch-drive type scheme. Fant can do either but he's a big-body as well, at 6'6" 325lbs. This group is not the old Denver Broncos "Quick and Shifty" OL. It's big and strong and built to move bodies, not dance with them. The sooner they get a big anchor at center and shift to a man blocking scheme, the sooner they'll
  6. I know this was a joke, but there's actually merit to it. Joe D's first draft was a dumpster fire. I don't care how many ways people try to justify it. Wasted picks on crappy players outside of Becton, who at this point looks inferior to Wirfs. That doesn't make him a bad GM. He gets three or four drafts to figure it out, in all fairness. The evaluation comes from the rest of what being a GM entails. Contracts, trades, acquiring draft capitol, managing the cap, placing value on players (his and other teams') and not getting fleeced. Outside of screwing up Robby Anderson's deal, he's be
  7. Joe's first draft what an absolute cluster****. His second, much better.
  8. Arguments only get tired when they're proved valid and used often. I'll start: Zuniga, Coples, Devin Smith, Ashtyn Davis, Ardarius Stewart, Stephen Hill, Jace Amaro, Darren Lee. All in the first three rounds. all outstanding combines. all sucked. The only difference between these players and Zuniga? They actually contributed something to the team.
  9. Forget Austin. Cut Zuniga because he's hot garbage and hasn't sniffed a QB pressure in two years. Usain Bolt can run fast. That doesn't make him an edge rusher.
  10. So you're basing his potential value on the fact that he's athletic. Like Ashtyn Davis. Like Quinton Coples. Like Calvin Pryor, Stephen Hill, Devin smith, Ardarius Stewart, Hackenberg, Morgan....Measurables. Every one of them hung around taking up roster spots due to the simple reason that they were drafted and cutting a draftee too soon would be an embarrassment. Jachai Polite left them no choice, but they could very well have kept him hanging around stinking up the joint instead of putting a decent body in his place. There are lots of excuses to keep Zuniga around, "it's just a practic
  11. One roster spot over another. Bless has more value and more experience. He actually started games. Zuniga is terrible. He's another workout warrior that everybody just wants to "give a chance to develop". He adds nothing to this team. Austin added something. So keeping Zuniga makes no sense whatsoever.
  12. So Bless Austin isn't worth a roster spot, but Jabari Zuniga, who plays like he has no arms, is worth developing. Huh. Ok.
  13. All of them are in the state if New York, my friend. And the five boroughs are all considered new York city.
  14. All the places you mentioned are in Bew York. The Meadowlands is in NJ.
  15. 1. New England is a region in the Northeast that includes Massachusetts. 2. Carolina Panthers represent both states (see: above) 3. D.C. does not have the space nor the infrastructure to support building a stadium in D.C. so they play just outside, but keep the "washington" part because D.C. has higher population density than Maryland. 4. New Jersey has the highest population density of all states, has a huge area (meadowlands) to support a stadium with parking for tailgates, has the highway infrastructure to support 80K fans coming and going from throughout the state as well as
  16. yet none of those teams play outside the respective states in which those cities are situated. If the Dallas Cowboys played in New Mexico or Louisiana, that would be a more apt comparison.
