  1. I love Waddle and he stood out to me last year even when I was looking at Jeudy and Ruggs’ highlights. His speed is next level and he has the skills to go with it. Still think it was ridiculous for him to go over Smith who I think was the best WR in the draft but time will tell.

    If Phillips stays healthy then he’s the best defensive player in the draft. Huge risk but his talent is unquestionable. I really, really hate that they ended up with him. He was the one defensive guy I wouldn’t have minded the Jets taking.

    Eichenberg was a nice pickup where they got him too, smart to go there in the deep draft class. 

    Incredible draft for them. As good if not better than ours, but I really hope Devonta Smith makes them regret that decision for a long time.

    You remembered that hey? Had lot of reservations about his ability to play in the pros 

    I remember being thinking both he and Treadwell were absolute garbage and all hype. There was nothing to them.

    Then I ruined it all by absolutely loving Corey Coleman...

  3. When the time comes when it’s possible I really want our fanbase to actually come together and get this message across.

    They’re the worst jersey’s in the NFL and a f*cking embarrassment given there was nothing wrong with the preceding uni. I’ve never buying another unless they change it back.

    0-1 is not that subjective. 

    It’s 0-100 if you’re talking about their scale.

    I’m not saying it isn’t useful or even that it’s not accurate but it is completely manipulated by the eye test of individuals and unlike DVOA or QBR susceptible to both human error and bias. 

    They mention how of all statistics their early NFL career grades are the greatest predictor of future success, which is probably easy to accomplish when you literally control the grades. 

  5. PFF aren’t analytical at all. Their rankings are purely subjective grades based largely on their scoring system which is also subjective.

    The site can have it’s uses but the amount of people who treat their grades like gospel, who use them to tell you insultingly stupid claims like Perriman > Robby is just ridiculous.

    They have no idea how the Jets ranked AVT relative to other lineman. They keep talking about the availability of Christian Derrisaw who is not projected to move inside as effectively as AVT, that creep Sam Monson keeps talking about how Wyatt Davis would have been available in the third, as if there isn’t a f*cking reason he’s available in the third.

    Pass. He’s annoyingly stupid.  He’s so full of himself he’s probably spray paint any Revis picture at Florham Park. 

    How exactly is Sherman stupid? Because he talks trash?

    He actually comes across as pretty intelligent, especially when it comes to football. Most importantly - he can play.

    It is now. When is the last time we had a head coach and GM on the same page? Probably Tanny and Mangini

    Mangini wasn't the greatest coach but a great talent evaluator. Tanny was there to sign off and do the numbers. 

    Next we kept Tanny and the great roster we built and teamed it with Rex. You can't even blame Rex for destroying that SB ready roster cause he was a kid in a candy store, of course he's going to get a sugar high and want everything. No buisness in personnel decisions.

    Now let's fire Tanny and hire Korn Ferry at 6 figures for our GM search. Also as a condition Rex must remain head coach. Im shocked the best we could get is John Idzik.

    Whatever, it keeps going. We finally seem to have a competent GM and a Coach that at least looks like the real deal on the same page. Only Woody being back in town could F this up somehow. Just let them work. After last year anything they do this season will look good. Pressure isn't come from the fans for an instant rebuild. Just progress

    Rex overachieved with those teams.

    As usual we overrate our guys; Crowder is a nice player but Cole is a more versatile and talented player.  This guy routinely makes Odell Beckham type one handed grabs.   You put the ball in his vicinity and he will get it.   He also can return punts which makes him even more valuable.  I like Crowder but if is a choice between the two, I go with Cole and don't look back.   Remember Davis, Mims and Moore will get their share of looks; it is very likely that Crowder will be the odd man out.  Then again, all 4 may get to contribute.  Like I said, Cole can also return punts and even take a some to house.  Something this team has seen in a few years. 

    This is literally everything I heard about Perriman being more valuable than Robby all over again.

    Every bit of it. If anything our fanbase ridiculously underrates our players - Leonard Williams and Robbie Anderson were both ridiculed here to a ridiculous degree. I hate Adams as much as most of our fans but even he is better than a lot of them let on. Our fans are garbage and among the most reactionary in the league when it comes to judging players. Crowder is a year younger than Cole and has 4,160 yards and 26 TD's to 2,242 yards and 12 TD's. Crowder has been more productive in even worse situations.

    The one being overrated here is Cole, who no-one on this forum had heard off a few months ago. Crowder is the better play and any neutral fan would say so.

    Keelan Cole is the security that makes Crowder especially expendable. 

    there’s no good argument to keep crowder versus $10 mill savings when you have Moore starting and Cole who can play all 3 spots.  

    I know people will say support the QB with weaponz but he will be supported even without Crowder. That $10 mill rolls over into next year. It’s sound business and Zach will still have plenty of good options even if/when someone gets hurt.

    Yes there is. He's far, far better. 

    Crowder is hands down the most underrated player on this team. Not many better slot guys in the entire league. 

    If he leaves I hope he goes to play with Aaron Rodgers and put up 1200 yards.

    There will be no failure.  They can win 5 games and its not a failure if they are being competitive in these games and showing promise and fight.

    Vegas has us at 6.5 wins.  That is the expectation for this season.

    I see us going slightly over that.  I say we get 7 or 8 wins.

    I'd agree with that but if it is a debacle with little improvement then I don't want to hear people talking about rookies as if that's an excuse.

    I think we'll be much much better and I think we'll get to about the same. Not quite playoff ready yet but getting close to that level with another big off-season ahead.

    Drafting the better player at a premium position that is not necessarily a need at the time. Drafting for need high leads to passing over better players to fill holes with lesser talent. Over time, that leads to a weaker roster. 

    Everybody loves the AVT pick this year, but that one's gonna be be questioned down the road for the trade up and the fact that it's going to be incredibly hard -if not impossible- to pay both Becton and Vera-Tucker down the line, especially with the QBs contract coming up at the same time at the LG's. So far, that pick is his outlier, having gone LT, WR, QB, WR with his other firsts and seconds. Don't want to get into next year just yet, but I imagine that Edge and CB might be added to that premium position early list. 

    Vera-Tucker may be able to play tackle down the line. It wouldn't surprise me if at some point he's moved there.

  12. Just now, slats said:

    And Christian McCaffery and DJ Moore and a few rookies that were talked about a lot in this forum in Tommy Tremble, Terrace Marshall, and Chuba Hubbard. He's being given a real chance to have success there. It's not only a better cast than he ever had on the Jets, it's probably a better cast than Zach Wilson currently has. 

    I thought this too but wasn't aware just how bad their line was. Christensen better be prepared to play right away. 

    Pat Elflein is pencilled in to start, which says a lot.

    Rookie head coach, rookie offensive play caller, rookie qb.  

    Can anyone give me a scenario where a team w/ this situation had a good season?

    It's not something that happens very often.

    We had two of them + f*cking Brian Schottenheimer and got to the AFC title game. John Harbough/Joe Flacco did the same. Mike Smith/Matt Ryan went 11-5 the same year.

    The rookie play caller isn't a good enough excuse -These guys have been around football long enough to do their job. You expect some growing pains but it's a bit of a cop out to say it's an excuse for failure. 

  14. I'd be really disappointed in anything under 7. Especially with that schedule. 

    The team has more than likely upgraded in literally every area. Including the two most important areas - QB and HC. There's not a position where I look and think we're worse. I actually think we're quite underrated in a lot of areas - There's some wildcards like Rankins, Mosley and Joyner who are extremely tough to predict - If even two of them get back to their best then you're looking a very good defence.

    I love the fits on offence - Everyone is setup to succeed in that system. Zach will love the big bodied WR's on the outside, AVT and Carter will be perfect for the zone blocking scheme, Moore will be a guy we can constantly try and get into space. I really hope we keep Crowder as a safety valve - If we do this is our best offence since Fitz. 

    I was more pessimistic than just about anyone heading into last season - The roster was bare and we were going to be relying on rookies and unproven guys seriously overperforming to be even competitive and to be fair some of them did. 

    Obviously a lot depends on Zach. He may suck, he may just struggle in his first year but I still find it hard to believe he can worse than Darnold in this situation. 

    That said if we're losing close games but Zach is balling out I'd still be encouraged going forward. I don't really care if our trash CB's are what cost us games, that's obviously a priority for down the line. The offence needs to be a night/day change from last year though. No excuses.

    Rodgers and Wilson both wanna move to different cities and are blaming not being supported or disrespected.  What else would explain wanting to leave solid organizations for the Raiders or Bears?  

    The reason why the Packers are currently considered a solid organization while the Bears are not is the Packers have Aaron Rodgers and the Bears do not.

  16. Aaron Rodgers is despised by his own family ffs. A lot of what makes these guys so good is what also makes them unlikeable. See Michael Jordan...

    If Wilson can play he will be fine even if he's the biggest POS in the locker room. If he can't, he wont. 

  17. I listened to their podcast and despite the A they sh*t all over the trade up for AVT.

    They do make some good points, there is pressure in AVT to justify giving up what we did but you still have to love the conviction. You have a young QB, go get the sure thing.

    I think a lot of these draft analysts fall in love with way too many prospects and are way too confident they’ll produce. Like they were talking about Wyatt Davis like he’s a sure thing to produce. If that were the case he’d have gone much earlier than 86.
