  1. 1. Chad Pennington 2. Eric Smith 3. The overwhelming majority who ever played a snap for the Jets, excluding only about a dozen or two. 4. Chad Pennington 5. Eric Smith
  2. I'm sure the market must be hot for a man behind the curtains of juggernauts like the Jets, Jags, Lions, and Bears. Any chance the Browns are hiring? 7 years also means he had the honor of being hired in Mike Maccagnan's first year, which is about 5 years longer than most players lasted.
  3. <Insert obligatory scrotum joke here>
  4. But come on, what about 2/3 of the 2002 season, right? Not to say that the 61 TDs / 51 INTs in the 54 games that followed wasn't also truly breathtaking. 1.1 TD and 1 INT per game are what QB dreams are made of.
  5. In fairness, I guess by comparison, he does have a decent chance of turning in a better ROI this year than the one JAG season the Jets have gotten in return for their $35M paid so far. Just ignore that literally the only reason he's still even on the roster today is because, by opting to get paid $10M in 2020 to do absolutely nothing, it also meant the team was forced to substantially overpay him for yet another year.
  6. Not too upset about it, but no, I don't think they "won". I never loved the idea of taking an interior OL in the top half of the first, so of course also not trading up to make that happen, particularly for a team with so many needs and the supposed OL expertise of JD, at a position very frequently filled with mid-to-late rounders and solid starters frequently finding their way into FA . If AVT is a hit, then I'll of course be just fine with it, as this team has done much worse before. However, I also think his rookie year was a bit over-hyped around here, as while he was not by any measure bad, there were a few of his own whiffs folks were in a rush to blame his lesser-liked teammates (including McGovern repeatedly earlier in the year, before he won back the favor of fans), rather than rightfully putting on him. It's simply not the kind of move I'd typically be excited about short of it fitting a very specific need for an otherwise well-built team. However, all that will really matter is how it works out, but I will say the reduction in draft picks that came as a result of the move definitely can't be considered a justification for the Jets yet again needing "one more year" when they chose to so heavily invest, so it's time to put up or shut up.
  7. In total fairness, sometimes it's a little worse in regular season.
  8. Yeah, Revis' past has always shown his commitment to the Jets was no more than to when it was to his own financial benefit, regardless of whether in the team's best interest. For those who defend it by saying it was "strictly business", that's fine, but let's not pretend anything is even slightly different about that right now. Trying to cash in on his past with the Jets is the last remaining chance he has to pull more money out of the NFL, after ending his career as a league-wide punchline, and that's all he's trying to do now. Mevi$ didn't suddenly transform into a new person. I actually have no problem if he pulls it off now, because whatever side money he takes doesn't make any difference to the team on the field, but let's also not try to suddenly start retroactively praising the guy for something he's not, and never was.
  9. So I take it this thread was designed to be the most direct substitute for Adams surprisingly not being all Adamsy on the topic?
  10. Well in theory, you could still consider many Jets' QBs overrated if you include the terrible ones that were qualified as "not bad" or inexplicably better (as seen above). But yeah, the Ryan level of overrated would still be the GOAT around here, considering all of the fawning that goes on for the likes of Pennington who was indisputably worse across the board at every one of the things Ryan is considered overrated for doing.
  11. Sanchez was good in 1 out of 6 playoff games. That's it. In 2009: vs Cincy - Wasn't bad, but entirely irrelevant as they simply didn't throw the ball. Running game and D completely dominated. vs Chargers - Horrifically awful. The team won 100% completely in spite of him, as he had to get dragged kicking and screaming to victory. Shut-out in the first half. vs Indy - Threw one go-route to Edwards, and did absolutely nothing for the rest of the game. Shut-out in 3 of 4 quarters. Proven to be totally useless once Greene got hurt and the run game couldn't completely carry the O. In 2010: vs Indy - Completely sucked vs them again, but this time defense and running game dragged him to victory against the Colts as well. Yet once again shut-out in the first half. vs NE - Great game all around from the entire team, including Sanchez. I'll never take that away from him, but he also didn't win it by himself, for those trying to push a narrative. vs Pitts - Unmitigated disaster. Just barely snuck away from another first half-shut, but instead had the honor of getting more points for the Steelers' in that half, which was also single-handedly greater than the margin of defeat. The scapegoated Jets D meanwhile allowed only 17 points, scored 2, got 3 turnovers, and pitched a second-half shut-out. Meanwhile, still down by 2 scores Sanchez ate up half of the 4th quarter with a useless drive that ended in 0 points. Anyone using this game as some great Sanchez defense cannot be taken seriously on any football topic ever. @Jetsfan80 I miss anything?
  12. It certainly took unmatched brilliance to deduce that on 3rd and long, Jerald Sowell was somehow open for a 2 yard gain almost every time.
  13. Listen, I'm hardly sold on Wilson at all yet at this point, but that just seems unnecessarily harsh.
  14. The gut reactions: Week 1: Sept. 11 vs. Ravens, 1 p.m., CBS - Not happening Week 2: Sept. 18 at Browns, 1 p.m., CBS - Maybe Week 3: Sept. 25 vs. Bengals, 1 p.m., CBS - Only if Mike White Starts Week 4: Oct. 2 at Steelers, 1 p.m., CBS - Probably not, but could be Week 5: Oct. 9 vs. Dolphins, 1 p.m., CBS - Hopefully Week 6: Oct. 16 at Packers, 1 p.m., FOX - No chance Week 7: Oct. 23 at Broncos, 4:05 p.m., CBS - Nope Week 8: Oct. 30 vs. Patriots, 1 p.m., CBS - Certainly hope so Week 9: Nov. 6 vs. Bills, 1 p.m., CBS - Very doubtful Week 10: Bye - They definitely won't lose! Week 11: Nov. 20 At Patriots, 1 p.m., CBS - Meh Week 12: Nov. 27 vs. Bears, 1 p.m., FOX - Should Week 13: Dec. 4 at Vikings, 1 p.m., CBS - Probably not Week 14: Dec. 11 at Bills, 1 p.m., CBS - Not happening Week 15: Dec. 18 vs. Lions, 1 p.m., FOX - They friggin better Week 16: Dec. 22 vs. Jaguars, 8:15 p.m., Prime Video - Prime time baby! Which means while they easily should, probably won't as everyone watches Week 17: Jan. 1 at Seahawks, 4:05 p.m., FOX - Hopefully Week 18: Jan. 7/8 at Dolphins, TBD, TBD - Will either team even care? It's the Jets, so they'll definitely lose a couple where they're favorites, especially if it seems to have suddenly "clicked" but then steal a couple out of complete left field to balance it out, so if this draft class is anywhere close to the hype machine levels and Wilson stops being quite so Wilson about it, should be looking at around .500.
  15. Credit where it's due to JD, he's certainly been much more cost effective at the Jets' sucking.
  16. In the end, it's still dependent on dramatic improvement from Wilson to not be the worst in the division. If the light suddenly turns on for him, then that could change.
  17. What? He totally is! Rumor has it Wilson will then be taking 13 and JJ 73.
  18. I've got nothing to complain about from yesterday, but the rapid mood swings that go on around here are pretty hysterical. This team has been an utter sh*t-show for years now, right up until the very end of this past season. We should all know by now that no matter how good an offseason may look on paper, it doesn't really mean much until it shows something on the field. Every one of us have players we fawned over on draft day that turned out to be massive busts. Don't get me wrong, it's always much more enjoyable to have an offseason worth getting optimistic about, but the concept of JD suddenly getting thrown up onto a pedestal is pretty comical. We all know if this team comes out of the gate looking like crap once again, a great many will be calling for his head by October, and if it doesn't turn around dramatically from there, he'll be packing up his bags next January. I'm certainly not rooting for any of that, but it's as real of a possibility as anything right now. I'll be convinced otherwise when the team actually starts to finally break the trend of continual awfulness on the field for over a decade. His career will still very likely live or die based upon Zach Wilson.
  19. Of course you always have to see how the players actually turn out and, despite not being super excited by the first pick (with absolutely nothing against Sauce), it's really tough to be unhappy about how tonight has turned out, unless you just really, really want to be.
  20. You use the dreaded "P" word too many times and the poor, innocent kid will be cursed to a career of mediocrity on IR.
  21. Does that at least also come with half as many holdouts and fake injuries?
