  1. Indeed that’s true, although I’d still say he gets credit for the fact Bosa came in and immediately performed as advertised...so many prospects like him simply fail to live up to expectations and I’d venture that coaching or ‘scheme’ are a contributory factor in most instances. Coaches are often way too clever for themselves and even good or great prospects can flounder under such circumstances....hopefully Saleh has that ability to both develop an unheralded player, such as Warner, and also handle the big time prospects (and ego’s) line Bosa, at the same time,...the great coaches manage ev
  2. Also, 2 of the top 5 were developed by our new HC (Warner & Bosa)
  3. I was banging the table for Justice Crater all through the draft
  4. To be fair to Bowles, he’s clearly a very good DC, just wasn’t a strong enough personality to be an effective HC and his reliance on vets was maddening, You can argue that’s down to not trusting the talent he was being given by Maccagnan and while there’s some merit in that argument, a good coach needs to be able to be flexible enough to work with what they have. I also feel like it’s obvious how much more we are on the same page between Douglas and the scouting dept and Saleh and the coaching dept. ....maybe I’m wrong but it does feel like the two are getting together and saying ‘we
  5. A lot of good points in this thread, I think the problem was Rex didn’t have an even remotely capable edge rusher and it came home to bite him in those two AFCCG, everything he did was deception and blitzing, it’s a testament to how great a coach he was on the defensive side of the ball that he made it work as much as he did but in the really big moments, and against the really elite QB’s, he had nobody that could put consistent pressure on QB’s and force rushed throws or mistakes, it’s been our Achilles heel for near 20 years and while every other position has been addressed (QB, OT, OG,
  6. I think by October, barring a major set-back, we should be at least 2/3 or eve. 75% capacity for sporting events outdoors....I know both Silverstone and Wimbledon will be spectator events in July ...probably at least 50% capacity at the Grand Prix and around 10 or 15K per day at Wimbledon when it’s usually 30-40K...that’s July!....... with hopefully everyone fully vaccinated by early autumn we should be in course for full stadiums
  7. Week 18....8-8 Jets face unlikely “win-and-you’re-in” showdown against Sam, who’s back in the starting line-up after missing 6 weeks with a fungal toe infection for the 6-10 Panthers
  8. He was Sports Illustrated’s “prospect X’ last year https://www.si.com/nfl/2020/04/29/deepest-sleeper-of-nfl-draft-prospect-x-identity-team-reveal
  9. 10 or maybe 11 .....think he wore 11 as a Freshman but would obviously need to speak nicely to Mims
  10. It’s cool, I’m still still seething about the state Mike Hickey left us in!...I’ll catch up
  11. Well, at least we’ve moved on from Maccagnan
  12. It’s easy to say that now re; Wilson but the proof will be on the field when the games start and we see how he handles the inevitable adversity that will come his way, what’s for sure is we’ve given him a helping hand and a chance to hit the ground running with some exciting offensive talent that Darnold certainly never had. I also never felt Darnold wasn’t a ‘football junkie’ or lacked when it came to working hard or stidying film....the reasons for his failure (up to this point) are many and varied but I personally don’t think it was for a lack of effort on his part
  13. That was never the issue, it was your 40 time that sank you ...1 minute 42 (ish) butters no NFL parsnips!
  14. You threw a pick six....didn’t you?
