  1. People should look up the "Elway cross" if they are impressed by this kind of thing
  2. The Bills and Josh Allen definitely seem to have been anointed in the media for the upcoming season. I have to wonder is if really is going to be that easy for them and if not, how ready is Allen to deal with adversity? Time will tell
  3. If Saleh mentioned that the collisions so far seem to include more helmet then I think that means there must have been collisions, no?
  4. We have rinsed, washed and repeated many times at QB and that makes us ready as fans for that outcome if it happens....... again. But we are literally nowhere near that point right now so I hope the OP got what he wanted out of this thread,
  5. no excuses this year. He needs to justify his draft position. Happy with this extension however. It is cheap enough and I would hate to see him figure it out somewhere else.
  6. If he can hit the sweet spots this year on the field then who are we to judge how him for his offseason training regimen?
  7. Reserving two spots for 60s and 70s era names whom I never saw play. Namath and Maynard seem to be consensus here but I have no direct way of knowing. Which leaves three players. 1) Joe Klecko 2) Al Toon 3) Tough choice but Nick Mangold from a short list of Mangold, Revis, Freeman, D'Brick and about half a dozen others. <edited to add> Special mention for Kris Jenkins who was all-planet and a joy to watch for about half a minute
  8. So 400 was a damned lie and always was !!! <bullet dodged>
  9. Like Leo, if that draft draft were to be done over again I seriously doubt he would go as high as he went but he isn't terrible either. So not in the pantheon of Jets first round "immortals" like Vernon Ghoslton, Dee Milliner or Quinton Coples to name just a few.
  10. If the "talent" is as good as we hope it is. There will be enough talent if We stay healthy The 2nd and 3rd year players progress as we hope, and if at least some of the rookies make an impact right away. Two out of three of these and we are a 7-8 win team IMO All three and who knows but it all rests on how well and how fast the young talent develops.
  11. My mistake. Well if we have him for two more years it givers us that much time to line up his replacement. In the final year of his deal he is going to be singing for his next supper anyway, whether with us or elsewhere and so I expect his motivation level will be high.
  12. Why wouldn't you consider the parking lot at Applebee's instead of White Castle? The place has a bit of a history with posters from this board and this way you will be properly situated for some conflict resolution in case things between the two of you go south. South even of innocent butt play that is.
  13. If you are at or near the bottom of the ocean any buoyancy at all and you will move upwards. Nowhere else to go really.
  14. CJ got his money and basically did not provide full value to the team due to a variety of factors. He needs to be quiet now and just check his bank balance. The team will be better this year. I expect him to play well in a contract year but I do not think anyone here feels he will be part of the NY Jets renaissance that is coming in future years.
  15. I get the whole tough schedule and in a tough division and that we could be much better and still not go over the 5.5 wins that Vegas thinks is the correct number. I get all that but screw it. I think we will be much better and in the mathematic conversation for a WC until late in the year. 8 wins, maybe 9. Wilson in the conversation for the most improved player.
  16. The problem is that he must have been told for years what the dangers are on the overeating side, Especially since he has been a professional. Injuries happen it is a rough sport but he does not seems to have done he best job at looking after his body either.
  17. Sounds like he has his tackling fuel although he should probably stay away from the word "eat" in his press conferences.
  18. Rangers Islanders are a special rivalry to be sure but in some ways it was a little resentment from the Islander fan base who felt they did not get the full respect of NY after their dynasty in the 80s. Maybe they are right to feel that way. After all they the the team with all the rings yet any time they played the Rangers in their own building the Rangers fans would outnumber them. In their own building let alone at MSG! Maybe the Islander fan base is right to feel; like they were being short changed in the respect department. But let's be honest here. Rangers-Devils rivalry became the bigger story in the 90s than Rangers Islanders. As a Jets fan I hate the Dolphins but the Patriots moved to #1 on my hated franchise list a long time ago.
  19. Carolina may have the best press in the NHL and seven games against them got us to the point where we were either going to figure it out or go home. Right now when Tampa tries to press us it looks really weak and slow compared to the 'Canes. We should thank Carolina
  20. Nowhere to hide today is you are a lightning fan. There was a narrative that they could almost spot the other team a game-1 win before they kicked it into an extra gear that they had along. Or if you don't like that one then then there is the whole "Rest vs Rust" narrative. Both of these told us that Tampa was going to come out focused and pissed off after game-1 and that we had better watch out. And then they played the game. I know it got ugly in the last 5 minutes but other than that I don't recall ever seeing such a one sided ass kicking in a 3-1 game. We had chances galore and they did not get as much as a sniff before that mad scramble at the end.
  21. After last season I thought the Islanders franchise was tracking for a trip to the finals this year. It was a crazy year for them and I am not really sure if this was simply a one-year anomaly or if that team needs more serious tinkering in order to make another run. I fear it may be the latter. With that said this Rangers team is ridiculously young and built the right way. I think that the playoff run this year is like cramming several years worth of invaluable experience into a single year. The window for this team to be really good may be open for a very long time. Obviously we still need the kids to continue to develop and there will be challenges to manage the cap but those are good problems to have. But then there is this year. Some players and teams go their whole careers never getting to a conference finals. We need to continue to chase after the prize this year like a starving man will chase after food. Colorado certainly looks scary but the idea that we can go toe to toe with the 2-time reigning champions is very appealing. Clearly that team feels as if they have another gear and that they intend to bring it tonight. As a fan I feel like we are playing with house money but I am also greedy and find myself wanting more. Another win tonight would go a very long way towards shocking the hockey world, Again.
  22. 2nd youngest team in the NHL. Even if they lose this one they have managed to cram 2-3 years worth of playoff experience into a single season. Not a bad investment in a sport where everyone says that playoff experience is a necessary ingredient to a successful cup run.
  23. Canes will be tough. They score in bunches so we cannot be giving the lead up the way we seemed to do all series with the Penguins. if we do we may never get it back again. Still, we are basically talking about house money at this point.
