  1. To be fair, I was 4 large G&T’s down at this point last night so the tongue-in-cheekness may have seemed more obvious at the time, that said, the last 5 words are the key here and still stand …… Lets’ see how they play Since 1982 when I was introduced to this godforsaken, tortuous entity in Kelly Green, i’ve rarely been more excited about what I’m seeing and what lies ahead. However, close on 40 years of hurt and shattered expectations has taught me to wind it in, no matter how much I try to get carried away….burnt too many times….sorry…..so Let’s see how they play if Z
  2. I love him, I love them all….but if we start the season 2-7 then it’s all for sh!t…..let’s see how they play
  3. So encouraging to see an offense running from under centre most of the time and a QB looking so comfortable doing it….some motions in there too, it feels like we might actually have something exciting to watch on offense for the first time what feels like about 25 years
  4. 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
  5. Also, 2 of the top 5 were developed by our new HC (Warner & Bosa)
  6. I was banging the table for Justice Crater all through the draft
  7. 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
  8. 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,
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 10 or maybe 11 .....think he wore 11 as a Freshman but would obviously need to speak nicely to Mims
  13. It’s cool, I’m still still seething about the state Mike Hickey left us in!...I’ll catch up
  14. Well, at least we’ve moved on from Maccagnan
  15. 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
  16. That was never the issue, it was your 40 time that sank you ...1 minute 42 (ish) butters no NFL parsnips!
  17. You threw a pick six....didn’t you?
  18. As good as he is, I’m yet to be convinced that Kyle Pitts is having a hall of fame career with Sam throwing to him...and hard to agree that we had a conservative draft when we gambled 2 very valuable 3rd round picks to move up to 14 for an OG!?...I’d say that ballsy
  19. If he can make FG’s from 66 yards then just take the 3
  20. Agreed, it’s a great trade if you went up and got a player you rated very highly and clearly wanted who fills a glaring need AND he develops into an elite player while starting from day 1......the Sam Darnold trade was a great trade at the time, but now it was a dreadful trade, not least because those 3 2nd rounders were prime picks that should’ve been used to draft players to help support Sam....all water under the bridge now, but this will be an excellent move if AVT is the player we and the Jets believe he is.
  21. I love this draft, I love what we have done offensively here and also through free agency, every pick has been exciting and I can;t wait to see what Zach, AVT and Elijah do when they get on the field and I’m just as pumped about Corey Davis and Keelan Cole too.....it’s been way too long that we’ve been dreadful and unwatchable offensively, but my point was more that a lot of the same people lauding what we are doing now will be the first ones heading for the life-rafts demanding we fire everyone when it turns out we are not very good on D. when poor old Zach has to throw 40 times a game chasin
  22. Amazed nobody picked up on the moment Woody hugged the 9 year old kid just as he was telling Elijah “we have a new quarterback who’s gonna be really excited to see ya”
