     Everything he enters he wins, which isn’t supposed to happen in marathon running. Sub-2 has been the holy grail for a very long time in running. It was never a question of if it would happen but when and everyone was pretty sure Kipchoge would be the guy to do it in Berlin or Chicago after what he did last year (essentially shattered the record by a Secretariat-esque length). Nike kinda preempted that with this whole Vienna thing and while it’s pretty cool I can’t help but feel like we got jipped for marketing purposes.  

    Meh - Maybe.  I think everyone who's interested knows this is a showcase, as you even allude to.  And it's a phenomenal one at that, even with all the support.  But, if he ever does it in an actual race, that will certainly dwarf this.  He's only 1:40 away from that.

    Dallas was expecting us to drain the clock with Bell, so they were crowding the line. It's looking like we aren't exactly steller at run blocking unfortunately. They wanted to make Sammy beat them through the air.

    There’s a middle ground between running every play and throwing every play.

    No, the ship is trying to sail. The problem is every time Adams so much as blows an impressive snot rocket on the sideline you get three to six threads from actual grown adult males along the lines of “Lol take that hateeerrrz.” And we gotta do this all over again. 

    Pac’s always gonna Pac.  Do we really need to wait on a unanimous decision to call this one?

  4. I've been firmly on the side of 'no coach could succeed under these circumstances,' but the irony of this victory lap, of course, is that not figuring out how work in the running game and better control the clock, up two scores in the 4th quarter, and allowing Dallas to come back, was not impressive coaching.

    I know no one will believe this, but I'm not trying to kill Adams. I've never said he's a bad player. He isn't. He's a very good safety.

    However at the time, we had no offense to speak of, mainly due to the putrid QB play we had for years. So when you're picking at #6, and you have a QB who gutted a historically good defense in college twice, and another with freakish arm talent staring you in the face, you don't take safety. I don't care if he's Ed Reed, Ronnie Lott, and Sean Taylor rolled into one (which Jamal isn't), you don't overlook the glaring need at the most important position for a safety....any safety.

    It was a terrible decision, but today was literally the 1st time I thought he, at least, lived up to his draft position.  The ship has long since sailed on it being the wrong pick over Mahommes/Watson.

    No QB for weeks, and the needle didn't move at all because of Jamal Adams. Sam comes back, and the entire dynamic of the team changes. Suddenly the O-line, receivers, backs and tight ends are better. That is why you only use first round picks on QBs, guys who protect QBs, or guys who harass QBs. You don't waste your time with safeties, defensive tackles, or middle linebackers. You get those guys in the third, fourth, and fifth rounds.

     

    I hear ya, but today’s probably not the day to kill Adams.  Dude was electric out there.  Literally any other day though.

    The problem is that Adams plays his heart out every game and that included those four blowouts to start the season when the Jets were the worst team in the league. It doesn’t matter how hard Adams plays every week because he’s not factoring into wins and losses, and you shouldn’t spend top-six picks on a guy like that. That’s what’s at issue. 

    Jamal Adams played as well today as JN closes their eyes and pretends he’s plays every game.
