  1. So I take it this thread was designed to be the most direct substitute for Adams surprisingly not being all Adamsy on the topic?
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. Listen, I'm hardly sold on Wilson at all yet at this point, but that just seems unnecessarily harsh.
  6. 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.
  7. Credit where it's due to JD, he's certainly been much more cost effective at the Jets' sucking.
  8. 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.
  9. What? He totally is! Rumor has it Wilson will then be taking 13 and JJ 73.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. You use the dreaded "P" word too many times and the poor, innocent kid will be cursed to a career of mediocrity on IR.
  13. Does that at least also come with half as many holdouts and fake injuries?
  14. Exactly what I expected, but to me a bit... meh. Nothing against Sauce at all, but just more of the same with the Jets seeming to have little concept of how they're supposedly even building their team, as they often just kind of blow with the wind.
  15. Oh ye of little faith. When the Jets set their mind to it, they can easily achieve that goal.
  16. I'm definitely ready to completely despise, or be overly giddy about, the Jets' picks. There is never any option in between.
  17. Exactly. It's the same situation I pointed to when the Jets made the mind-numbingly stupid decision of keeping Maccagnan after firing Bowles, considering there was not a single player of Mac's who failed with the Jets but went on to see greater success elsewhere, which would happen if it was truly only a coaching issue. It's a point that's held true for a great many Jets GMs, but just doesn't really seem to fit the narrative of some around here.
  18. In fairness, he did seem to choose his words carefully and did not say as a starter. If you compare him to the piles of hot garbage throughout depth charts in the NFL who can't even get onto the field, including all of the guys on the Jets who were incapable of beating him out for the job, he may not be completely wrong. It's like saying "I am at or above average of those in this room at not crapping myself" when it's half-filled with newborns.
  19. And Mangini failed in NE, failed worse of the two in NY, failed in CLE, and failed in SF. How's that better? Not one single person actually employed by the NFL seems to be convinced that it is. There's no more to this laughable theory of Mangini being super secret GM in hiding than Jets fans (in fairness, often deservedly) hating someone more the longer they are with the team. However, there are some that then become desperate to give any shred bit of credit for others' work to those here the shortest amount of time, purely out of spite. It becomes only more suspect when you look over the 2010 lineup and realize most were actually brought in before (Cotchery, Moore, Ellis, Pouha, Thomas) or after (Sanchez, LT/Greene, Edwards, Holmes, Slauson, Scott, Cromartie, Leonhard, Pool) Mangini's time. In the end, the Jets were far more successful with Herm and Rex than they were with Mangini, despite the Tanny/Bradway front office combo running things for all 3 of them (until the 2 years of the immortal John Idzik). That doesn't mean Tanny is deserving of any praise, but it does nothing to change the fact that Mangini was a failure in every capacity except the work of complete fiction by some around here.
  20. Always gotta love the desperate need for some to baselessly credit Mangini for any minor thing Tanny actually did right, while conveniently absolving him of all that went wrong. You know, the same Mangini who failed at everything before, after, and during his time with the Jets.
  21. Leave it to Jamal to use the success of someone else to hashtag himself with his self-given nickname.
