    No matter how many times you tell them this regime has ZERO loyalty to this playes they would just keep saying....but he's a 3rd rounder!

    And again Chris Johnson getting lauded for getting Douglas a full draft too late is hilarious to me.

    Quite possibly the Jets wouldn’t have been able to get Douglas before the draft.

    Thanks! These rules confuse me. I believe as a vested veteran he becomes a free agent immediately.

    Me too. I’m not sure what the cut off is. Is it anyone who was drafted with a signed contract is it greater than 2 years. I don’t know what qualifies all I know is that McCoy has been around

    Insert Leveon Bell wherever you see "OBJ" in this story.

    Not another word needs to be changed, and the story is the same isn't it?

    Then explain why Jets fans think this story is amusing..

    I assume it’s because of the Browns coaches response. The coach said he’s not mentally ready and has not accepted the fact he was traded. Gase made no such accusations or inferences.

    Why would we move Brandon Shell or Jordan Jenkins.  Young players on their rookie contracts with starting experience.

    Sure, lets trade them simply because they were drafted by someone else.

    The Jets wouldn’t. The media thrives on these blogs where hysteria rules

    They’re not roasting them for firing Maccagnan necessarily, it was the timing.   No one really thinks that Maccagnan didn’t deserve to be fired, it just should have happened in January.  

    It didn’t happen in January and they didn’t roast the Jets for not doing it. In fact they had good things to say about the Jets during this time. It’s real asimple, Johnson saw enough of Bowles - gone. Kept MM and recruited Gase. Saw deficiencies in MM in present environment. Gase much more dynamic and demanding than Bowles. MM not the right personality for the Jets new direction. Scream about Gase if u want but stop the ‘it should have been done in January ‘ These reporters are babies and frauds. Could care less what they think. This is a good time to change so as to get everyone on the same page and direction for the upcoming year.

    If it was correct now why wasn't it correct to fire him BEFORE FA and the draft ? If he was deemed that incompetent why let him handle the 2 most important aspects of the season in FA and the draft ? 

    You have two choices. Both include the fact that he didn’t fire MM months ago and allowed him to run free agency and the draft. That’s a given.

    the 2 choices are:

    1. Fire him now and let the new team work together for a whole year.

    2. Fire him down the road.


    it would seem choice 1 should make it a little bit better.

    From all accounts, Chris Johnson got the HC he wanted, the DC he wanted, and the FA's he wanted.  During the draft and evaluation process he discovered some things with Mike and the organization that he did not like and took action.

    That's what a good CEO does.  Gets his way and ensures he has the right team around him.  This isn't a SOJ moment.  It's the exact opposite.

    SAR I

    Exactly. You can disagree with him but he acted when he felt he had to act. I have no problem with the timing. Even if he made the decision to fire him just before the draft (which he didn’t) you don’t do that because it would be total chaos. Firing him now allows the coach and new GM work together for a whole year before the next draft. For the record on the surface I liKed MM

    Ah, the old "None of our draft picks mattered until we took Darnold" argument.  Let's see how that works around the league, shall we?

    • The Rams had drafted Todd Gurley and Aaron Donald BEFORE they took Jared Goff. 
    • The Eagles had drafted Lane Johnson and Fletcher Cox BEFORE they took Carson Wentz.  And their roster was so good, they won a SB with the backup QB.
    • The Chiefs had drafted Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Dee Ford, Mitch Morse and Marcus Peters BEFORE taking Patrick Mahomes.

    And that's just teams who took QB's recently.  What's Macc's excuse for failing to build a strong roster PRIOR to Darnold's arrival? 

    Not at all. A generation QB makes everyone better. All of a sudden players look talented. The Rams were not very good until Goff came along ( plus a change in coaching and philosophy). If Darnold clicks so do the rest of the team

    What is the Jets plan?

    Spread the field,  use their RBs as receivers, short  timing passes, periods of RBs down your throat. The days of the 7 step drop back are over (maybe once in a while)

    i know this because I spoke with Gase. 


    Nobody knows  what their true plan is but the Jets OL appears to be road graters with enough ability to support a short timing passing game.

    I wasn't disappointed with picking Q. It's later in the draft when we should have been doubling down on OL. Polite is an interesting *could be* prospect, but at that point Macc had used 1 pick since Sam on offense.  Both 3s and the 4th should have been OL, OL, OL. Instead we get Macc getting cute and trading back to pick up a special teams ILB and a reconstructed CB. If we're going to take fliers on guys, I wanted someone to protect Sam.

    When Sam is laying on the field, and we're all wondering if his season is done, let me know how important ILBs and depth CBs are.

    Darnold will be a 2second get rid of the ball QB plus a running game that will slow down the defense. You don’t need all pro talent across the board on the OL to execute this plan.

    I would imagine that prep for the Super Bowl is slightly different than prep for a regular season game.  I'm sure he'll be a good player, but he's also a player that can be schemed around with 3-step drops and outside runs.  My point is that people act like we already have Aaron Donald, and that's both untrue, and frankly a poor comparison.  We didn't become an elite defense this weekend.

    Indeed.  Naturally, anything you say on JN gets extrapolated to the strawman's extreme.  But, the point is that we didn't suddenly draft a guy the likes of which no one has ever seen before.  I hope that he puts up 10 sacks a season and we have a great defense.  I think he'll be neutralized in a lot of situations with quick passing and outside runs.

    Yes they will. That says a lot that a team will master plan around one guy. That already makes the Jets a better defense. You have reduced the offenses options. The Jets will adjust and plan accordingly hence the LBs in place. For those who feel the Jets are clueless and without direction or a plan I would disagree. The Jets do have pretty good coaches in place.

    In 2015, Mac took Leo as BPA, arguably the right move barring Gurleys injury.  The next right move was to trade Mo, or not sign him, for the 3/4 Defense.  Mac screwed that up and paid Mo way too much money.  

    In 2019, Mac told Quinnen as BPA, arguably the right move, assuming that Mac really did not grade Josh Allen well.   The next move is to trade Leo, or at least not resign him for real money, unless he really turns it around. Polite is really a 3-4 Edge, so they is what we are playing.  We also have Foley, Shepherd, Henry for 10mm and McClendon who we can’t seem to find a way to get rid of.  

    In another thread we can go though some of the trade offs Mac made that we should write down and hold him accountable for.  He makes bad decisions and has no comprehension of roster construction.   Watching the Patriots pick players after the Jets who play the same position as the Jets’ pick is just cringeworthy.   

    We all know Mac tried his best here, but I think the Johnsons have seen enough to conclude that Mac is not going to construct the roster that Sam takes to the Super Bowl.  At Tanny at least got the end game and urgency of it. Mac just saunters through the process trying to pick BPA.  The whole thing is nauseating to watch. 

    FWIW, look at the receivers the Cardinals got got Murray, and the OL the Redskins got for Haskins.  Those are bad teams with a plan.  The Jets are a bad team with no plan. 

    If Darnold becomes the star we hope it really doesn’t matter much what philosophy Mac has. A great QB covers for a lot  of ills. 

    Brady does it for NE. The Pats won 6 SBs for primarily one reason - Brady. They never had the best OL they never had the best DL they never had that ‘must have’ edge guy(they did it by committee most times and were opportunistic). 

    Darnold hopefully will be the Jets’ Brady. Mac has put Darnold in a position to succeed over the next two years. Our OL will be good enough because there Is a new philosophy of offense developing that will make them better. It is now up to Gase.
