    It's amazing how people fall for the same sh*t over and over again.

    Agreed.

    The 'Johnson family' has more money than some small independent nations....if any or all of them want to take up for whatever cause of their own volition, I applaud them. I do.  Tell the New Yorker mag, or the NYT...revel in it.


    But it is NEVER good business to use your business for social/political causes.

    They're donating $1M in support and in week 3 will wear decals in support of Ukraine. 

    I'm really passionate about this and the biggest reason I filed my retirement from the military. 

    BRAVO ZULU NY JETS!!!!!!

    NFL.com: New York Jets plan Week 3 tribute to Ukraine to raise awareness for relief efforts.

    Professional sports teams, especially one with the spotty history of the NYJ should stick to Sports, and avoid social causes.

    Never knew it was up to sports teams (businesses) to support anything other than their own business.

    So you'll forgive me if I'm not overly moved by the sudden awakening of a certain socio-political subgroup to being judged or losing "freedom".

    I'll forgive you absolutely nothing my friend.  As a Physician, I am a firm believer that the patient is the ultimate arbiter of the care they receive. Abortion, vaccines...don't matter to me.

    Not so sure why you want absolution from me, saying I'm a supposed member of a 'certain socio-political subgroup'?

     

    Whatever Dude..so be it.

    I think it’s best we stick to the topic at hand  and shut up about the vaccine. Definitely not the thread that and honestly. I’m sick of hearing about it. 

    I agree, sorry I commented re: the vaccine, but I'm also similarly sick of hearing about Jet Nut's take too. I'm also tired noticing that the comment that gets the 'stick to the topic at hand' admonition is to the reply and not the original asinine post.

    We should be so lucky to have Zach turn out to be a similar 'typical dumb jock' as Rodgers.

    He’s ranked 28th. Behind David freaking Mills. The headline is spot on.

    Edit: I honestly didn’t know there was a quote (I got this from another forum), so I apologize if there is some asterisk or something to this article that I cant see since I don’t subscribe to The Athletic.

     

    So, the original article is actually titled (and you can see it without an Athletic 'subscription'):

    " NFL Quarterback Tiers 2022: Allen, Herbert and Burrow Make Tier 1 Debuts"

    and, you title/headline your thread:

    "NFL head coaches and general managers don’t think much of Zach Wilson"

    Editorialize much?  There were actually commendatory comments about Wilson's 'talents' and lack of a team around him in the article.

    Pretty sure Josh Allen would have been similarly rated after his rookie season...just sayin'.

    Refuse a vaccine because, well just because.  No reason.

    WOW...just, wow.  Now we all need a reason to not get an experimental vaccine?  Even though as a healthy 30's y.o. male his risk of serious complications or death from this virus was almost 0?

    Simple fact...hind sight now indicates the vaccine was probably a good idea for potentially susceptible individuals at higher risk for serious complications and/or death....but since it DID NOT prevent infection (and therefore transmission), a lot of people got a vaccine they may or may not have needed and for which no long-term risk studies were able to be done.  Honestly it isn't even a damn vaccine..it's more a prophylactic medication to prevent death amongst those more susceptible.

    Football thread so I'll leave it there.  Just hate seeing people judge others for medical decisions they make as they have NO F*CKING idea what is best for them.

    Because she was the one who got dumped.  Meaning she’s likely not “over you.”  It’s a bad idea for the friend to get with her, too.  Just bad juju all around.  

    Is that worth losing a friend over? 

    Then talk to your friend and say she's bad karma or whatever...tell him why she's a head case or why you dumped her.  he's your ******* best friend...you can't have that convo with him? Really?

    And If you can't, then once again, he ain't your friend....or, you dumped her 'just because' you had a better offer, and you just deal with it because everyone's an adult.

    This ain't hard...and it's even less hard for a early 20's yo who isn't even married.

    Correct.  Because hey, crazy concept, but if it goes beyond banging, then that girl would then be around when you’re trying to hang out with your friend.  And there is risk that the girl will turn your friend against you.  You’re not “done with her” any longer if she’s dating your best friend.  She’s still going to be in your life because of his poor decision, thus potentially making things extremely awkward.  

    Now for goodness sake go make a male friend for once in your life.  

    If you are truly 'over her', who the **** cares if she's around when you're hanging out with your best friend?  Is he happy with her?  Is she happy with him?  If so...?  

    And if she can turn your best friend against you, he wasn't worth being your best friend to begin with...find another.

    Wtf these conferences are drunk. College football is going to sh*t. 

    Ahhh....it's just a realignment for $...of course.

    I remember when Nebraska and Colorado, and then Tx A&M and Mizzou, left the Big 12.  Mostly over conference revenue sharing with the new mega-TV deals. TX and OK tried to run roughshod over the Big 12 with their own 'separate' TV deals...wasn't gonna work.  Then there was the discussion as to who belonged where based on land-grant status or AAU standing LOL.

    It's ALL economics.

    Pretty cheap deal for a starting LT even a non-elite starting LT.  He also got 8.5 guaranteed at signing with a total guarantee of 13.7.  It wasn't really a 30 million dollar deal.  

    LOL...really?

    If he plays here this year, it really WAS a $30 million dollar deal...ALL paid.

    Not sure where to go with this.

    Hurt in September with a 6 month return etc?  Umm...nevermind...youre not making sense.

    Assuming you meant 6 weeks for a patella dislocation regardless of weight?  Umm...maybe?  was there any other associated ligament/tendon/joint damage from the force of injury that caused the dislocation?  Becton had surgery after the patella dislocation...why?  Minor (if you can say that) patella dislocation without associated ligament/cartilage damage injury, surgery not needed.

    Listen...I have EXTREME doubts about Becton's ability to stay healthy, maintain his weight etc...I'm a skeptic.  But as a physician, I'm just gonna say you, and I, have no idea as of yet.

    I'm choosing to stay positive lol.

    Now, after reading more of this entire thread,  I'm going to apologize for my take on your earlier reply.  I misinterpreted what you were saying.

    Becton's injury had a BEST CASE of being back to play in 4-6 weeks...with no surgery etc.

    Surgery on his knee meant a few things:

    Some possible associated cartilage/ligament damage in the joint either from prior injury or the patella dislocation event itself; or

    enough laxity in the patella tendon after the dislocation that some method of 'tightening' the patella tendon was needed. When he had surgery, for whatever reason, this was a minimum 3 moth injury IMO.

    Recovery time for return to athletic activity following surgery for a dislocated knee cap is six months no matter how much a person weighs.

    The Jets were still talking about Becton returning at some point in 2021 after his surgery.

    They were wrong.  By a lot.  Somewhere in the neighborhood of 35-45 weeks off the mark.
