  1. @Ron Rico made this point several pages back, so yes
  2. This is good information, it only took what? 200 odd pages 😊…anyway excellent point, I for one did not appreciate that and I’ve not heard anyone else join the dots on this either so thanks, it might explain everything
  3. I know LaFleur is gone and therefor the SF connection is less obvious but I’d keep an eye on Mostert or McKinnon on that list
  4. Well done the OP….took a shocking amount of borderline bullying in this thread but guess what, he was right all along and those who mocked and piled on should be lining up to offer fulsome apologies
  5. Totally agree with you, Green Bay should actually be lucky to recoup anything for him. There are effectively two positions to which any trade parameters can be decided: A) The Packers have to eat the huge amount they owe Rodgers, in which case they demand as high a draft compensation as they dare, aware that AR holds all the leverage over them and can squeeze them into complying if he so chooses and desperately wants a deal to the Jets concluded. On top of that JD will attempt to play poker face and hold out for the lowest compensation. Not without risk for Douglas but he has a very encouraging track record in this area of his tenure so far. In this scenario it’s likelier the Jets move closer to what GB would want in compensation but I still don’t see the Packers having a ton of leverage at all here. B)Douglas & the Jets agree to take on some or most of the cap hit, offering GB some relief and freeing up space to add in FA to support presumptive new starter Jordan Love. But in that case JD should rightly expect a very very favourable deal, as in, what else are you giving me GB?….how much flexibility we have here is the question but go with me theoretically. At this point there’s much wrangling and detail to be thrashed out but I would have a hard time swallowing a deal that involves us giving up much at all for AR. We’d have basically just upped ourselves in effect.
  6. Yeah I think if that were the case we’d see it happen all the time? At this point it’s worth remembering that trade a few years ago when (I think) the Texans actually received a draft pick from (Ithink) Denver when Houston actually traded FOR the QB that Denver mistakenly signed to a huge deal the year before but then wanted rid of….apologies for the vagueness, can’t remember his name, either way we’ve seen the precedent where a team in a cap bind has to actually give more up to get free of it. Not saying that this will happen with Rodgers but the Jets should own a lot of leverage here and if they have the cap space to absorb it then we are in a string position, but the key thing in that Texans deal was that they had so much cap space they could make that deal AND receive a high draft pick as well as the player, but that does have to go against the cap I think EDIT: I had the wrong way round, Texans actually shifted the player to the Browns; Brock Osweiler https://www.pff.com/news/pro-brock-osweiler-trade-smart-move-by-browns-front-office
  7. agreed on the excitement!…..It’s the off-season, it’s when we come alive
  8. ???…I actually thought your comment was pretty funny and my response was intended light-heartedly….maybe I should’ve added a smiley face, have only just joined the thread and so haven’t read all 40 or so pages…perhaps I missed some context
  9. For me, this is the clearest indication yet that Derek Carr has no intention of signing for the Jets!
  10. Exactly, o-linemen especially are holding on every single play in every single game but it only occasionally gets called. I reckon they should force all OL to wear boxing gloves so there’s no chance they can grab
  11. It still amazes me that after 30 or so years of consistently being wrong about everything and just throwing darts against the wall this Kiper guy STILL retains the prominent ‘draft guru’ position he does …it’s truly mind-boggling, but fair play to him
  12. While I disagree with your final comment(the middle school bit, not the overrated bit) I agree that the determination to anoint Douglas here by many posters is almost comical, it’s like absolutely everything sucks but the one guy who was put in total charge 4 years ago is beyond criticism. There’s an invisible force-field around him it appears! I personally think we need to stay the course with him but only on the proviso we stay the course with Saleh and his CS. The news today about MLF feels a bit like the beginning of the end but at the same time, I agree with those posters who’ve argued that this CS was too rookie to begin with. And the offensive production the last few weeks was indeed, offensive!! …something had to change I can understand this move but we are long past the honeymoon stage now. It’s sh!t or bust for both Saleh AND Douglas….anything less than 10 wins and playoffs and we are back on the merry go round
  13. To be honest I’ve really wanted the Bills to do well since they drafted Josh Allen, there was something about the whole pre-draft “he’ll be a colossal bust, don’t want him” nonsense that just made me enjoy seeing him rub that in peoples faces day after day. But this just cements it for me. Much as being a Jet fan makes it hard to support any other team in the AFCE(and even moreso after 20 years and counting of having to deal with the cheaters) I can’t help but cheer for Buffalo now that we are out of it.
  14. You are probably right but Christian Eriksen was back playing within a year after his cardiac arrest on the pitch at the Euro’s in 2021. Different sports with differing degrees of contact admittedly but modern medical techniques are incredible. regardless this is great news about Hamlin and there’s a lovely story about how he had an online go fund me page for a ‘toy drive’ that had raised about $6K dollars prior to the game but is now somewhere north of 7 million bucks. That has to be a nice thing to tell him
  15. So true, and then when we do pick a year to go 2-14, which in most years would be good enough for the No 1 overall pick, Jacksonville goes 1-15…so jets
  16. I can totally see why you’ve been suicidal since 98
  17. My take is very very simple…Douglas is on his second HC, the next would be his 3rd…if he couldn’t make it work with the first two then why should anyone have any confidence he can deliver with a 3rd
  18. Lame AF, he took a coach who won 7 games the previous year and tied both hands behind his back and then, surprise surprise, the team that JD gutted and handed over to him sucked …he owes Gase a debt of lifetime gratitude for being the good soldier and taking the fall for his rebuild without kicking up a sh*tstorm. Respect to Gase for taking that on the chin…quietly Joe Douglas picked Gase because he chose to continue with him, taking the job on the basis he could work with him. He’s on his 2nd HC…he has no right to expect a 3rd it’s sh!t or bust with Saleh
  19. For sure, personally I’d be disappointed if there wasn’t some aggro within the building, it’s another losing season, a season that had so much promise 6 weeks ago…I’m glad if there is some anger going on…channel it correctly and work it out. I like Saleh, but the slogans and the catchphrases do nothing for me, get mad and throw some tea-cups around the locker room and tell the front office you are pissed at the fact your OL is still a patchwork and that you have no QB’s and let the FO yell back at you to call better plays. These guys are grown ups, they have impressive skills as humans, let’s see them work it out and come back brighter BTW as someone who’s worked around sports journalism for 30 years believe me when I say there will almost certainly be some truth to what JLC is saying but it will also be somewhat dramatically overstated….it’s just how these things work around a losing season
  20. This! The reality is neither should be gone, we tried that endless cycle and it has failed, both have shown promise and done some good things but JD sure has as many question marks around him as Saleh does. No way Douglas gets to pick a 3rd HC. If it really is that bad then he is as much a part of the problem as anyone. Once we all calm down we realise that we all have to be in this for the long haul then we accept that both are back for ‘23…but on very very short leashes…the cult of JD needs to wind it’s neck in and realise he’s not the messiah while all around him is incompetence
  21. Agree Huff has earned the right to more playing time.
