  1. OK, even skipping over the whole letting a team rebuild in a decent time, one of the greatest of all of these was the: 'noodle-arm can't throw, force mangini to take farve - oh fart, favre tore his bicep - force mangini to stay with him'. It's not the fans fault at all. It is TOTALLY Woodyys fault for being that thick skinned, or short term thinker. But I just think that the Rex/Idzik (this vey thread, btw) would have worked out differently if the boss got the two employees together and said 'I'm ignoring the media and fans', instead of both of them realizing (Idzik waaaaay t
  2. Which is why, even though it should NOT be, every-time we fans go melodramatic 'the sky is falling', it actually hurts the football team. Because Mr. Softy owner wants to get rid of the symptom, and know the melodramatic are the most likely to love the new folks (for a year). Even though it shouldn't be that pointing out problems (loudly) makes it worse .... it does.

  5. Just contributed! Thanks for everything you do, Max.
  6. There are unsigned NFL rookie agreements that basically protect the player if they go down before the contract. Otherwise, there wouldn't ever be rookie camp. https://www.nj.com/giants/2018/05/what_happens_to_unsigned_rookie_if_he_gets_injured.html
  7. We're all thinking of you - we're a Jets brotherhood, and that ulcer is understood. Take care of yourself, we're all grateful you made. Heads up recognition. Great to hear you're on the upswing.
  8. I heard a story from Brian Costello at the NY Post - that Douglas wanted to bring Robbie back, but the problem wasn't that he undervalued or low balled him. He was pretty sure that Robby was going for the 15-16M/year slotting. In the early stages of a rebuild, he only wanted 11-12 at the veteran WR position, so he went out and signed Perriman. By the time Robbie's high end market dried up (that apparently both Robbie and Douglas misjudged) the band for WR money was already used up by Perriman, so it wasn't like Douglas could throw an extra 500k at Anderson to stay.

    Totally get it. It may in fact be that he got a splash of water in the face having to pay for Met Life. But is suspect his accountants tell him the cash outlay for 1/2 ownership in metlife was more than made up for in the corresponding value of the team if he wanted to sell. I just think the evidence of rolling out big guaranteed contracts with signing bonuses, the non-roster spending, and evidence other than how did the GM structure contracts doesn't back up the cheap bit. Woody is a member of the lucky sperm club who never has to worry about anything in his life, the bastard.

    There's really no evidence that I can see that backs up this whole 'woody is cheap' agenda. (There are enough problems he has without this one.. lol) Woody was pushing hard for a Jets Stadium of his own, and there's no way this thing was going to be cheap. They ended up back at Met Life when crooked Sheldon Silver and the Dolans blocked this so it wouldn't be a threat to MSG. They were ready to pay. (Now the experience would have been very different, and might have killed the Jets vibe - but he wasn't being cheap. Atlantic health is no doubt an amazing facility, that
  11. In fact - history would say not only are they likely to sit, they do better when they do. https://www.foxsports.com/nfl/gallery/the-first-starts-for-quarterbacks-selected-no-1-overall-111616
  12. The only thing I fear is that the environment around the NYJ makes us repeat the same cycle over and over again - and yet I'll never have the ability to walk away.. The drama created by the clickbait media, the armchair GMs and owners that propel the impatience and 'get the bums out of here' mentality as if they have 1/100th of an idea - I honestly do not believe front office staff with choices or coaching staff with experience would ever come here. You only do because there are only 32 of these jobs, because who would want to deal with the likes of us. So yeah, my take - the 'fan
