Jets Info

  • What is your favorite Jets related memory?
    I was sitting in front of Willy Joe at the Meadowlands when he said to Suzy Kolber " I want to Kiss You". I'm sorry, I know the moral majority was outraged but that was the funniest thing ever. We all want to say something and not give a damn, Joe did. Drunk or not , I said that's pretty damn cool.
  • Do you have season tickets?
    On the waiting List, when I broke up with my girlfriend 7 years ago, the tickets were her family's.
  • What Jets memory broke your heart?
    Marino's Fake Spike is second on the list but easily Doug O'Brien missing that field goal to send the Jets into the AFC championship
  • Who is your favorite member of the NY Jets flight crew?
    Amateurs. Want to see what cheerleaders should look like in Green, google the BosCeltic cheerleaders
  • Where you alive for Super Bowl III?
    In diapers, ****ting myself and excited

  1. With so many rookies playing, a new offense, new staff, new rookie qb, it was always going to be a painful transition year. If the Jets are guilty of anything it's not being honest with their fans about their expectations with the current roster. This was always destined to be a wash out of a season.
  2. I agree, if an article super wonky and detailed, with football minutia, I'm all over it..but the written word is giving way to emojis and quick takes. There are great young posters right here on JN who love the details just like old geezers do but I think long form writing has an appeal limited to an aging demographic. People used to love physical newsprint, stories, now everything is in an easy to digest back lit format. I like podcasts because they remind of listening to radio as a kid, tuning into BBC and getting lost in stories.
  3. Human attention spans don't exist in large enough quantities to sustain a reader appetite for deep dive, thought provoking articles. Even here on JN, long posts will evoke friendly complaints. Everybody wants condensed cliff notes on their favorite football team before returning to a life of scrolling through posts on cute kittens, those bears who chilled out with Russians instead of eating humans...or the latest conspiracy theories. A football game no longer holds our undivided attention as it once did twenty years ago, nothing does. Even sex has to compete with our hunger for smal
  4. I was never enthusiastic about Joe Douglas, his early free agent moves, his later free agent moves, his drafting... he could right the ship in a year...possibly...or never. Drafting a rookie qb, even one as talented as ZW was always going to mean we would be bottom feeders for another year. I think the fan base wasn't given the truth as to how the season would likely unfold; this was obvious to anyone watching football for a few decades. If they wanted Darnold gone along with Gase, and draft a rookie, this paper thin team roster, even with a veteran qb was going to suck for at least anot
  5. Zach, the Phoenix, Wilson will rise from the ashes and his groin injury. Go kid...shut up those detractors and avoid the unblocked lineman being waved through by Greg Van Roten.
  6. None of this is important, it's just killing time until next Sunday at 4pm. Win or loose, I remain interested. Not just Wilson but how our no name cornerbacks play, how the oline holds up...most of us will continue to examine Jets minutia.
  7. Boomer is right. If Zach Wilson does not get himself killed running around trying to make a play, he is going to be a star. My biggest concern before he was drafted was not his God given talent but his ability to take a beating on a totally crap roster. Jets fans should be allowed to complain, to moan, to point fingers whatever...however if Douglas can hit on a few more picks than he currently hitting on plus Zach can avoid going on IR then the Jets will climb out of this hell hole of a football desert in the next year or two.
  8. That's a small sample size, let's give them a rookie season before anointing a winner. If he stays healthy money is on Wilson in the long term.
  9. For any younger player attempting to learn the new offense and who ended up missing a chunk of time during training camp through injury, the chances are they were never going to impress in their first game. That goes for rookies Elijah Moore, AVT and second year boy Mekhi Becton. Joe Douglas is going to have to shut us up this season with gradually improving oline play. I have faith in Morgan Moses being serviceable at right tackle. I'm skeptical about GVR, Fant and McGovern... but yes, it's early. His mediocre collection of talent better not get boy wonder killed back there.
  10. Zack Wilson's health is the priority here, they are going to set this team back if they can't protect him.
  11. The starting o lines for both teams are so bad, it's not surprising that both starting qbs look like crap.
  12. Belichick, the ultimate gangsta. Hate him if you want but he's ruthless and usually right on these moves.
