    Says Mike's brother said you better not burn this guy out :)


    If you told me this was Zach Wilson’s brother I wouldn’t blink.

    and I’m convinced the film Mike L is giving Zach to take home are ‘Leave It to Beaver’ reruns

    The slinky in the swap... an embarrassment.  Look at what the Cowboys, raiders, falcons, Vikings all built - and that was only 1 team.

    2 teams in LA built one of the nicest stadiums I’ve seen.  The jets and giants should have at least put a dome in - the nfl would give them a Super Bowl every other year!

    It’s quite shocking the amount of $$ put into that stadium and how poorly designed and aesthetically displeasing it is. 

    It’s like they never looked at the other stadiums and said ‘holy sh*t’ that’s what we want. They tried to be different but settled on the mundane

    I think they’ll try to sign him. But won’t overpay or give in to any ridiculous demand by Mayes side. 
    If they don’t agree, he plays on the tag, they see what they have with everyone else then re evaluate next off season. 

    Agree. JD will never negotiate from a position of weakness. Plan A: sign Maye to a Jet friendly contract. Plan B: they got people behind Maye that will succeed so they franchise or trade him next year.  Franchise him if they feel that Davis or whoever is not ready.

    You never name the rookie the starter. You always have a veteran who either get injured or play just bad enough that everyone gets excited as soon as they're benched and the rookie gets to be the hero. 

    I have to respectfully disagree. The Jets made a decision to part ways with Donald. We can speculate why all we want but the bottom line is they parted ways. One reason was Wilson. End of story. He will be the starter day one and he and the coaches will let him grow into the scheme. This is not Vinnie Testaverde in Tampa Bay. This is a very good coaching staff. This is different. The Jets don’t have an Alex Smith. It will be a mistake to bring in a veteran that will become ‘his’ team. This is Wilson’s team ‘til proven otherwise.

  5. Wilson starts. This whole draft was designed for them to grow together. No matter how bumpy a ride.  No way they throw in a veteran to start - that could throw a wrench into the system and effect his development and chemistry with the players. This is Wilson’s team.

    Hello Jet Nation - new poster here, long time reader. Let me just preface this by saying it’s an absolutely great ****in time to be a Jets fan.

    Something I’ve been thinking about lately, and I haven’t seen it discussed anywhere - is our new coaching staff’s ability to develop a QB. We’ve obviously failed miserably at doing this for the past decade plus - Rex with Sanchez/Geno, Bowles with Darnold (although I thought Bates did a solid job year 1 before Gase ruined everything).

    Well we finally seem to have a real deal coaching staff in place (we did it Joe!), but I’d like to hear some takes on why Saleh, and more specifically LaFleur are gonna be able to coach Wilson up to be a superstar. The arm talent is there, the cockiness/attitude is there... but will the Jets be able to buck the trend and take him to the next level?

    I’m probably just scarred from years of ineptitude and I have all the confidence in the world in Saleh, but is there any valid concern that a defensive coach like him won’t be able to make Wilson great?

    More than anything is the support and system that will be in place for Wilson. In my opinion Wilson has all the tools and is set up for success with this system. If Wilson doesn’t succeed it’s on him.

    The problem is they did not trade to get marshall.  He just happened to be there for that pick.  The trade made no sense at all value wise, seemed like a big favor to the Chiefs.  No big deal in the big scheme of things it was just weird.

    Or possibly trading down from #226 to #207 ensured JD that he would get one of his players in the last groupings. 226 might have been a perceived risk of missing out.

    I love our drafting philosophy.

    • Don’t be shy in the early rounds, be aggressive and get impact positions secured.

    • Later rounds draft guys who are athletic, versatile, and can play special teams! This has been lost on this team for quite some time. Historically, We always drafted slumberous players and never take special teams into account. I love how all of these guys on D can play a variety of roles, crucial for the zone D.

    • Offense and supporting our QB doesn’t just matter, it should be the prime focal point of the majority of our high picks. 

    • I thought overall this was a much better draft for Joe D, and while his first one had some home runs and really liked last years… the Zuniga, Perrine, Clark, and Morgan picks look like absolute whiffs. I see the majority of this class significantly contributing.

    Agree 100%. Good fusion with coaching staff.

    Yup, the team should have looked at 5th through 6th round talent in a diluted draft pool and made “absolute” decisions on specific players. I mean, players in those rounds, particularly in this diluted pool at the end of the draft, should be counted on to live up to our projections. This method of throwing players at a position  with the hope of finding best fit or even versatility seems cowardly. Make a damn pick at a position and expect it to be good, damn it. Asset resource was wasted through this methodology of finding diamonds in the rough. And a kicker, where was the damn kicker?

    I think they targeted specific talent to fit the system. This is going to be a multi packaged defense fast hard hitting to meet many needs. Personally I’m sick and tired of 3rd and five and they get 6. 
    This is no longer one guy does it all all the time. 

    plus all these guys will be special teamers. 

    the kicker is in the UDFA

    I also want to point out two things:

    1. the team moving UP for a player almost ALWAYS overpays. You can't just go by the points chart. If you only overpay by a little, you won the trade just by making it happen and getting 'your' guy.

    2. The Jets also got Michael Carter with the 4th Rd. pick they acquired in this trade. I REALLY like this prospect. He's an explosive runner and very good receiver out of the backfield. He should have went in Rd. 3. 

    AVT and Michael Carter for our 23rd and two 3rd rounders- sign me up.   

    I don’t think that’s correct. Michael Carter was taken with the 2nd pick of the 4th round which was the Jets scheduled pick

    Jets received pick #143 in this trade. 
    Subsequently the Jets converted that effectively to #175 and #200

    Granted the loss of value, in the end their was no loss of draft numbers. Jets lost #23/66/86 but gained #14/175/200 from the trade. 


    Minnesota Vikings receive: #23 overall (Christian Darrisaw), #66 overall (Kellen Mond), #86 overall (Wyatt Davis))

    The Jets receive:  #14 (Vera-Tucker,OG), #175 (Pinnoch,CB) , #200 (Echols,CB)

  11. I never understand how people ignore the fact that the Jets received pick #143 in this trade.

    That is how I judge the trade.

    I like our RBs.  Our oline sucked so obviously they couldn’t really excel but I think now they will have more room to grow.  Never been a fan of taking a RB high in the draft like many wanted.  Personally I think it’s time to get a corner, maybe another OL project like Cameron Clark last year, and even a TE. I really want to draft Cox first today 

    I was watching a video about Josh Adams, ND RB - what happened to Josh Adams potential Heismann candidate?

    The main conclusion was that he benefited from a good OL and production decreased due to poor OL play. Think about that statement. 

    there are not many RBs that can be productive with average poor OL play. OJ Simpson Barry Sanders are 2 that come to mind. L Bell is one who needs a good OL scheme

    i like the RBs with a good OL, I guess Perine sucks. Mason would be a good addition 

  13. If the Jets are developing a system where they want a heavy hitter then  Ben Mason is the way to go. He brings a different skill set to the RB committee. I didn’t realize Perine was so awful. 

    RBs: Coleman/Johnson/Adams/Mason

    That is an awful group overall.  Now we all know that the shanahan tree often can make any rb into some production but that does not mean you ignore it.  (imo)

    I think they will work well in this system. They will not find any better RBs in the latter rounds. They are developing a strong OL not only for Wilson but also for their running game

    For those guys obsessing over RB, Gainwell would be great in this offense. If he gets picked in the 4th i’d be pretty stoked and maybe @Paradis won’t have to choke a bitch. 

    I think the Jets are set at RB. 4 RB committee: Coleman Johnson Adams and Perine.

    Not with the picks in that mock you don't. No OL until third round even with the two proposed 2nds in the trade? Pass. 

    I said You make that trade every day if you are a GM. The picks are up to the GM
