  1. Progress. That's all that I expect and hope to see. What final form that progress takes is up in the air, and is the fun part of watching the games over the course of the season.

    Who knows what might happen? Heck, if the Knicks can experience such a great turnaround (currently in 4th place in the east, and a lock for the playoffs) in such a short time... why can't the Jets?

    My expectations after the draft are progress,  and dare I say... hope.

  2. I used to live, breathe, and sleep Jets football. Over the last 10 years, excluding a brief flash in the pan in 2015, I've become numb to it. They suck. I hope that one year they will start to develop some young and exciting players, but I'm not holding my breath. I watch the games. Heck, I'm payed to watch the home games. But, I think that if Gase continues past this year, I'll stop.

  3. Gase has a much more complete body of work to reference than Darnold. Every game spent with Gase is wasted opportunity to see what we have in Darnold. I'm not sold on Sam either way, but I think the most prudent course of action is to give him an effective offensive coach. He hasn't had that here.

    Gase makes Bates look competent at this point. That says something. 

  4. I cant believe I'm going to say this, but I miss Schottenheimer. That's how sh*tty our offense has been for close to a decade.

    It's just one game, but it all looks so familiar. 

  5. I've noticed a few questionable posts, but as always, it all gets figured out. I think the Mods do an excellent job here. I still can't believe that I've been lurking on this board for 12 years now. Haha!

    Anyhow, hope that all of you are doing well!

    This year was tough. Hopefully next year is a turnaround year for us. It was no fun, after a while, having to drive to MetLife every Sunday to watch the Jets lose again and again.

    Again, thanks for all that you guys do over here!

  6. It's been a long time since I posted. Hope everyone is doing awesome! This season looks to be a bit better than the last two, I hope!

    Anyhow, I have a few friends and family (including my children) coming to the game, and was hoping to have them hook up with some fellow Jets fans for the tailgate, or at least find some cool things to do in the parking lot. I'll be at the game, too, but I'm working it. So, I'll be stuck inside. 

    Any help or ideas would be much appreciated.

  7. My name is Dan. I'm really small. I grew up on LI, lived in FL and MN. Now, I've been living in Brooklyn for almost 2 years. I've been on JN since 06, I believe. I haven't posted much in years. I'm still waiting for the Jets to have decent QB play. Fitz was a decent surprise last year.... Anyhow, how's it going fellas?

  8. This sucks. It really does. Sanchez, through all of his flaws, was a "take the high road" kind of guy. This does not help the situation. I was a big Sanchez apologist, as I am with all Jets QB's, but this doesn't help him too much with his next team.

     

    Having said that...

     

    He regressed. He was managed poorly, by the front office with their lack of attention to talent on O, and by the coaches. Coulda Woulda, Shoulda...

     

    It's time to move on. I hope for him the best, but this most certainly will not help his stock as a company guy. Which is part of the reason he would be appealing to another franchize...

  9. I'm concerned about the deficiencies in the Milliner position

    I am, somewhat. I saw a few things from Milliner that led me to believe that his mistakes are fixable. Revis wasn't all that his first year. While I don't expect Milliner to be Revis, I expect him to be better than Wilson, and Wislon isn't really all that bad.

  10. Even still, our LBers and safeties are mostly different.  Just Harris and a part-time Pace.  So the past isn't necessarily indicative of the future in that dept.

    Good point. I think (and I realize that this is mostly speculation, due to a small sample size) that our LBers are better. our safeties are not as good, but I think that the net effect is a positive if you incorporate the D-line improvements. A better d-line will have the effect of hiding some of our deficiencies in the safety position.

     

    That being said, I think that our defense is actually better than it was last year.

  11. Like most games, this week will come down to turnovers. I believe that our D can force some turnovers against the Pats O, I'm just not so sure that our rookie QB will be able to prevent turnovers from our offense.

     

    If Geno holds on to the ball, and does not commit a turnover... we win. I really think it's that simple. I like the way our D matches up against this injury riddled version of NE offense.

     

    It's all about protecting the ball.

     

    On defense, you have to remember that it has historically been NE's tight ends that have given us fits during the Rex era. Also, we are better against the run than we have been in the last couple of years (or so it seems)... The TE's of NE don't scare me, and I think we can contain the ground game.

     

    It all comes down to our offense holding on to the ball. I expect a game somewhere around 21-17 or 28-21... either way. Hopefully we come out on top, but it all rests with Geno.
