  1. Pretty unbelievable after all the hype about how teams last year were more interested in trading for future picks because this draft class was going to be loaded due to people taking an extra year b/c of the funky covid season, this class seems pretty weak to me. Tibbs is clear #1 pick and I don't even view him as a Myles Garret/Chase Young level prospect. You have some DE/OT blue chip talent which is good - but other than that it seems like the other blue chippers are a center, a safety, and a CB who has barely played the last two years. Right now I'm hopeful the Jets will be able
  2. 1) Aaron Rodgers is under contract next year, and the following year (when he will be 40) - so you aren't just signing him - you're giving up legit draft capital in this years class (so say goodbye to our two firsts + more) 2) Rodgers is going to want an extension/more money - he "only" makes $25mm per year which is paltry for what the top QBs make now ($40mm) 3) Rodgers will not want to come to a team far away from contending 4) I'd have been bummed - but would have no issue with Zach sitting for a year - sitting him for two you start losing the benefits
  3. I'll caveat this with I think fans who are pissed at JD or have no faith in him are well in their rights given the product on the field. If you're out on JD - I get it - no issues. That being said I'm still a supporter. A lot of the reasons have been shared already so no point in doubling down. The ultimate reason I want him to stay is I think he thinks about things the right way. I believe you need to build from the draft, I believe if youre going to take swings in FA it should be for younger players who are rising, and I believe you should build through the trenches. You can thro
  4. Obviously big picture this isn't a huge deal considering we were never going to compete this season and Joyner was a stop gap. But holy sh*t this team has sh*t luck
  5. One thing I'm fairly certain about is Joe D needs to just suck it up and pay retail price for one member of the OL this offseason. Enough with the bargain bin hunting and relying on draft picks. I'm optimistic that Becton and AVT will be guys - but outside of 1-2 guys every year it takes time to develop. We don't have that luxury with a rookie QB. We passed on Conklin who all the fans wanted - he's been great for Cleveland. We passed on Corey Lindsley this offseason - he and the Chargers OL were great yesterday. We passed on Trent Williams whos the best tackle in the league. Just overspe
  6. Its an interesting thought - and given Carolinas outside WRs are not big (Moore - only 6'0 - Robby tall but thin) - it may be a good matchup to try it. However, I'm pretty wary of starting a guy who was an UDFA in a position he has no experience in for the first game of his second season. If they want to try it - great - but they better be ready to adjust quick if its not working.
  7. We made it everyone. Shout out to everyone who contributed on this board over a crazy offseason as it certainly helped distract me whilst quarantining. Its been a wild 8 months since our last game, the team looks dramatically different than it did when we left the field against New England. It feels like we're on the verge of something special, but realistically this team is still a ways away from competing. I wanted to throw down 20 predictions for the upcoming season which I will be sure to bump if they are somewhat accurate and ignore if I whiff. Would love to get your guys thoughts:
  8. I think the following will be true: 1) The Jets should be able to pressure Darnold w/o blitzing - our IDL is our strength and their IOL is their weakness. 2) We should have success rushing the ball - last year the Panthers were 5th worst in the league in terms of YPC and they didn't make any major additions that should help this in this area - we need to run early and run often to take pressure off ZW and keep Carolina's offense on the sidelines 3) Carolina's WRs will present a problem if we can't get to Darnold. So ultimately I believe if we can find success in the run
  9. He was REALLY good in 2017. Probably a POS but from a football perspective an interesting name if he gets signed.
  10. I think JPP would make a lot of sense. Bucs have Shaq Barret and love Joe Tyron. They need cap relief. JPP is expensive on a cap basis, but won't cost a lot to aquire. A future 6th or something is likely all it'd take. We get a 1-year gap filler.
  11. Pop + Achilles means our best case scenario is he is OK and can be Carl Lawson again next year. This year is done.
  12. Don't even know why I deal with this god forsaken team
  13. Becton was beat 5 times - and we gave up 7 sacks. Maybe the LG should be helping the LT more as the leak is not coming from the interior... 5 times on 23 pass attempts.
  14. Louisville also ran an outside zone while he was there... If you hear hoofbeats think horse, not zebra. In this case if you hear hoofbeats, think our franchise LT is a big fat fatty, not a scheme issue.
  15. I don't think anyone is expecting us to compete with GB - no one seems super concerned about them being generally better. The concern is over our left tackle and the implications that has for our rookie QB. Becton is getting beat around the edge, so take the "wait for AVT" takes out of this. Also Becton was getting beat like a drum when AVT was on the field. I don't give a sh*t if we lose every play to GB. I care if our LT is regressing and the risk that poses to Wilson.
  16. For the people saying Becton concern is unwarranted until games. I'd be with you if it wasn't for the past two years of circumstances. In college Becton was good as a freshman, amazing as a junior, and trash as a sophomore. As a sophomore he admitted to being overweight, and got his sh*t together for his junior year. Last year he had to go through the combine and obviously got into great shape for the combine and seems to have maintained that level in training camp. While camp was different last year and he was going against inferior competition, the reports around him last year in camp
  17. Jets have 99 problems and Becton could very easily be one of them. I was fine preaching patience against Lawson, but hes already been beat 2-3 times and we're like 15 minutes into practice...
  18. Really curious to see what the final rotations look like for this unit. Lawson and Quinnen are locks to stay in as long as the coaches want but the other two spots will be interesting. Foley/Rankins/Huff/JFM have all proved they should be on the field. My guess is early downs will be Foley and JFM on the edge, with later downs being Rankins inside and Huff on the edge... but JFM can also play that interior spot. This also doesn't include Vinny Curry...
  19. Can't wait to see our CBs in action against other WRs. Were the perceived weakness on the roster but it seems like they've been in tight coverage pretty consistently. Hopefully this is our CBs playing better than perception and not our WRs being weaker than we thought.
  20. https://nypost.com/2021/08/08/denzel-mims-could-still-be-red-zone-threat-for-jets-this-season/?utm_source=twitter_sitebuttons&utm_medium=site buttons&utm_campaign=site buttons First off, it is premature to say Mims is on the roster bubble. Sources say the Jets still see Mims as a big part of the 2021 team and are not even close to considering moving on from him. Could that change in three weeks when rosters are cut to 53? Maybe, but I would still label it highly unlikely. The 2020 second-round pick had a rough spring. He contracted food poisoning that caused him to los
  21. Seems like a fine day of practice - hopefully the injuries aren't too serious. One thing I can't help but notice is it seems like on a consistent basis the only two WRs who have been consistently performing are obviously Moore and then Corey Davis. Haven't seen anything consistent from guys like Crowder, Cole, Mims, Berrios, etc. I'm guessing Crowder will have a significantly reduced role in the new scheme. However, it really feels like there should be an opportunity for Mims to emerge - especially since he is predominantly running with the 2s/3s... pretty disappointed he hasn't made mor
  22. One thing I'm curious about - and if people who have been to the practices could chime in - is it doesn't seem like I've read a lot about Wilson moving around that much. Very possible I missed it - but I know play action/bootlegs/general ability for qbs to move and throw are cornerstones of this offense. I wonder if the staff is holding off on those and trying to get him more reps in the pocket? One positive on offense is it seems like we're running the ball well - hoping even if our pass protection isn't as good as we hoped at least we'll be able to mitigate it with a strong running game + to
  23. Seems like a pretty meh day overall. Nice to see the D making some plays. Generally been impressed by our CBs as it feels like even when our WRs are making plays they have been well covered. Will learn a lot more over the next few days when they put on the pads - just no injuries please.
