  1. I think this is the first time I've seen a post with one of all seven reactions from posters...
  2. Rosen wasn't included in the AZ "hype video" for this season....their starting QB wasn't included in a 2 minute promotional video. Rosen is GONE!
  3. It was close when Schiano was on top but collapsed after he left.
  4. Wasn't @Gastineau Lives a Detective from Gotham City? Smart money is on him.
  5. Exactly, way easier to tank in the NHL and NBA when you rely on less players to decide the outcome of games. I can't see how the NBA is stupid for a draft lottery...it's way too easy for teams to tank for the #1 pick in a sport where 1 great player gets you into the playoffs guaranteed. Also, not seeing why the NBA should reward the Knicks for having an inept FO. It's not like they have a great organization but have failed by getting the wrong players...the Knicks have had way more opportunities to become a better team than Brooklyn but look what has happened. With the right leadership, the Knicks shouldn't need a guaranteed #1 pick to get relevant.
  6. For comparison's sake here are there rankings from last year, do we think they lived up to expectations after year 1? 1. BAKER MAYFIELD, OKLAHOMA – QUARTERBACK 2. SAM DARNOLD, USC – QUARTERBACK 3. MAURICE HURST, MICHIGAN – INTERIOR DEFENDER 4. QUENTON NELSON, NOTRE DAME – GUARD 5. DERWIN JAMES, FSU – SAFETY 6. JOSH ROSEN, UCLA – QUARTERBACK 7. ROQUAN SMITH, GEORGIA – LINEBACKER 8. JOSH JACKSON, IOWA – CORNERBACK 9. DENZEL WARD, OHIO STATE – CORNERBACK 10. MINKAH FITZPATRICK, ALABAMA – CORNERBACK 11. SAQUON BARKLEY, PENN STATE – RUNNING BACK 12. HAROLD LANDRY, BOSTON COLLEGE – EDGE DEFENDER 13. BRADLEY CHUBB, NC STATE – EDGE DEFENDER 14. FRANK RAGNOW, ARKANSAS – CENTER 15. MIKE MCGLINCHEY, NOTRE DAME – TACKLE 16. ISAIAH WYNN, GEORGIA – GUARD 17. WILL HERNANDEZ, UTEP – GUARD 18. CONNOR WILLIAMS, TEXAS – TACKLE 19. LAMAR JACKSON, LOUISVILLE – QUARTERBACK 20. VITA VEA, WASHINGTON – INTERIOR DEFENDER 21. DALLAS GOEDERT, SOUTH DAKOTA STATE – TIGHT END 22. JAIRE ALEXANDER, LOUISVILLE – CORNERBACK 23. CALVIN RIDLEY, ALABAMA – WIDE RECEIVER 24. JAMES WASHINGTON, OKLAHOMA STATE – WIDE RECEIVER 25. MASON RUDOLPH, OKLAHOMA STATE – QUARTERBACK
  7. Let me summarize for those who don't want to sit there for 16 minutes (and remember, this is fantasy best possible scenario stuff): 1) Cards don't take Murray so I think Bosa and Quenton go 1-2...I skipped the beginning so not sure. 2) Trade down from 3 to 4 by bullying the Raiders into believing we will trade with another team and they pick Murray. We get 27th pick in return. 3) From 4 we force the Giants to trade up from 6 to get Haskins so we get back pick 17. 4) From pick 6 we bully Elway into trading up for Drew Lock and move down to 10 and pick up 2020 1st as well as a 2nd and 3rd. 5) Here are the picks we actually make now: Pick 10 - Brian Burns - OLB - he skips Sweat due to heart condition Pick 17 - Jonah Williams - LT Pick 27 - Garret Bradbury - C Pick 41 - DeAndre Baker - CB Pick 68 - our own pick - Riley Ridley - WR Pick 71 - Amani Oruwariye - CB
  8. The only thing I miss is the video games section. I once spent about 5 hours playing the Simpson’s snowball game finally getting the high score. I can’t remember which poster had all the high scores but eventually they took it back. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

  10. I agree on both accounts regarding the merchandise...I have two black hats with the 80's logo, one written in green, the other in black as well. I also have a grey hat with the current logo. In terms of people not liking the new logo, it's mostly the fact that the Jets had a rare opportunity to completely re-design the logo in a modern way but instead relied upon a poorly designed logo that was made in the 1960's. I think if the Jets/Nike never put out all the promotion in terms of what a drastic change this would be, very few people would feel so strongly about it. At least I know that I wouldn't.
  11. I think it's pretty obvious, you look at the history of the Jets and the players that were "hometown kids" and see that Mohammed Wilkerson was from Linden, look at how well that turned out and extrapolate........have I ever told you the story about a wily kid from Piscataway, Kyle Wilson? No, well he joined the jets and shortly after........so there was a kid with a great pedigree, chiseled face and blonde hair from Franklin Lakes, that kid's name? Matthew Phillip Simms, from the time he put on his helmet in 2013 he just took command and......alright maybe we should focus on the front office...so you take a look at Todd Bowles, a nice boy from Elizabeth, NJ and you see that over the course of his career.........so Mike Maccagnan was a strapping lad born in Hightstown, NJ, he came to the Jets and completely changed the........did you hear that we resigned Neal Sterling???
  12. I think you should have let Haskins be an option for the Raiders. I know there has been talk recently of them being interested. If I had to guess it is probably a smokescreen but we said the same thing about Mayfield and the Browns last year so I wouldn't be shocked if he ends up being the pick.
  13. Just to take the contrarian point of view: 1) Defenses are usually ahead of offenses in the earlier part of the schedule. 2) Greg Williams will have our defense fired the **** up going against his old team on Week 1. 3) Hopefully we won't have any key member of our Defense injured so we will be at full strength. If I had to take my chances, I think our D will be better than their O on Week 1. I think our O will be at least competent enough to be able to score on their D.
  14. I'd like to take a moment away from discussing the "sentence logo" just to revisit this. So just to be clear, the Jets and Nike (a multi-billion dollar expert in design as many have pointed out) took 5 years to add black to the uniform. Why did they choose black? Not because it is "stealth" as the marketing department calls it, not because black means "New York" or has any legitimate ties to the Jets specifically, they chose it so the team could sell more apparel. Because green is too hard for the youth to match with the rest of their ensembles. As was discussed pre-reveal, gray is much more modern and in style nowadays than black. It would have been a much easier tie-in with the team being Jets, would have been more unique in the NFL and still would have been easier for people to incorporate into their outfits....but the Johnson's and Nike wanted to go the safer route, the route that led to even MORE apparel sales. This is the type of decision-making that has been going on behind the scenes between Nike and the Jets. Don't let the marketing department and production videos about "bolder, faster, sleeker" fool you. Take it right from the NFL Art Director's mouth.
  15. I was thinking the same thing. When did the title get transferred from Miami because I never heard about it? Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  16. Bucky Brooks has the Jets taking Allen and then a TE with their next pick in his mock draft. That is all I will say about that. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  17. I actually agree that I didn't see a fan-made logo that I liked better than an update of the 80's logo...but I do hold Nike up to higher standards and it's been said that they were pushing for a change so I'm sure there were better options we never saw.
  18. Despite what some here may say, I actually agree with you 100%. I just don't like the logo, other than that, we're good.
  19. Yeah, no. You do realize that a logo does not, in fact, have to contain a "big ass JETS wordmark" right? That is the entire point of us saying they should have gone in a different direction.
  20. Did someone allude to middle-aged decision makers trying to "get hip" with the youngin's?
  21. Peace Frog, you are exactly what this thread needs right now. No sarcasm, thank you.
  22. @Mogglez I almost single-handedly got this thread to page 250 after the reveal....you owe me some sort of producer credits
  23. I....thought you were going to stop responding to me? Or do you not understand even your own posts at this point?
  24. Okay bud, I'm really thinking that you may be mentally deficient so I'll leave you alone. Stop making crap up and saying things that I didn't.
