    I really do. JD has upgraded this roster to a point where if Zach was down for a few games, the talent is there to be competitive and even win games with a decent backup.  Personally, I don't think that's either Flacco or White. 

    Fair but they resign Flacco and tender White this offseason.  Just seems highly unlikely at this stage.  Could be wrong.

    All of this year ??? We'll know after the first three games if he is going to be a franchise QB or a total bust.  

     

    Yeah, all of this year, probably.  Unless he is a complete disaster.  So you may be right, I dont know, I guess it kind of depends but in general, you dont give up on the #2 overall pick a handful of games into his 2nd year, especially considering that would technically be a full season based on games played.  There are quite a few new pieces who I think will see significant playing time that werent here last year, Wilson, Hall, the TE's, Tomlinson, even Becton.  So it might take a few games to really sync up.  Might impact Zach, so yeah, who knows but I think he'll start the whole season baring injury.

    I still believe that our #2 QB is not on the roster yet. Won't even hazard a guess on names right now, but I can't see us going forward with the White/Flacco combo into the season. 

    You think they upgrade the back up QB?  Cant say I agree but dont really have a passionate view either way.  I think they probably feel good about their QB room w/ Flacco as the veteran presence and a damn good #3 that they know can play.

    Yeah, I don't get the Jimmy G hate either.

    That's the thing though, I dont love or hate him Jimmy G.  He was just an example I used for the exercise in this thread.  Ideally, this hypothetical doesnt play out and Zach Wilson is a stud and we dont have to settle for a Jimmy G. caliber veteran.

    If Davis stays healthy I think he will lead the team in TDs. I think Moore will lead the team in catches and will prove to be Zach's 'safety blanket'. 

    Last year Davis got hurt and I don't think got a chance to develop chemistry with Zach as he struggled early on as a rookie. Still Davis ended up with 34 catches, 492 yards and 4TDs in 9 games. That's more TDs than Berrios in 16 games, and one less than Elijah Moore (5TDs) in 11 games.

    While I think there's still a good chance Moore will have the most TDs, I also think he will be getting the most attention from opposing teams.

    Obviously, its possible Wilson will explode on the scene (he certainly has the talent) and lead the Jets in TDs, but I just find it unlikely. Hard for a rookie to adjust that quickly to the NFL and produce immediately with a second year QB at the helm who will need a reliable target.   

    And as so many people have already stated- Zach will spread the ball around, so the difference in TD catches between the guy with the most, second and third most wont be major.

    Its quite possible Davis will have something like 6, Moore will have 5, the TEs will have 5, Wilson will have 4, Berrios will have 3 and the RBs will have 4. That would give Zach 27 TDs, a big jump, but not out of the realm of possibility if he stays heathy and this offense gets on track.   

    Agree w/ this, it will be Davis IMO.  People might forget how much Zach looked for him, he was staring him down hard for the first weeks.  He loved him some Davis.  I think Berrios might lead the team in receptions but Davis will lead in yards and TD's.

    No, you're wrong here. Jimmy has a hard ceiling, the knowledgeable SF fans I follow hate him, and the coach whose system we run gave up an absolute fortune to trade up to draft his replacement. Plus he's always, always injured.

    Yeah, they've been awful without Garapolo, because they've had to start CJ Beathard and Nick Mullens in those situations, and those guys are dogsh*t while Jimmy G is just a solidly bottom-of-the-second-third QB in the NFL. That's not what this team needs

    The knowledgeable San Fran fans you follow?  WTF?  That's the authority here that has proved my facts wrong?  lmfao   

    First off, there was nothing to be wrong about here with my original post.   I am not suggesting or requesting adding Jimmy G. For the 20th time in this F'ing thread,  I simply participated in the thread by proposing a hypothetical answer to a hypothetical question/scenario and just grabbed an easy name.  You could replace him with any vet, as I've mentioned before.  But now since you decided to be a penis about it, you're the one who is wrong here as I've provided facts and you've provided feelings of San Fran fans you follow.  lmfao.   

    Lets recap:

    Fact - the Jets could do worse than Jimmy G.

    Fact - San Fran sucked without Jimmy G.

    Fact - San Fran wasnt desperate to get rid of him or they would have started Trey Lance last year and wouldnt have waited till July to cut him

    Fact - he's 30 years old

    Fact - he has 33-14 as a starter

    Fact - San Fran is 24-9 with Jimmy G. and 7-26 without 

    Fact - he is 5-2 in the playoffs

    Fact - he was the starting QB of a team who went to the Super Bowl

    Fact - he has ties to the coaching staff

    Fact - he is floating around out there

    Apology accepted.

    Im not saying he is bad, but at best middle of the pack in a Kirk Cousins kind of way.

    Remember Kapernick also took that team to the  playoffs and Super Bowl.

    Sure, again, for the 10th time, I just used a name that isnt signed and has a connection to the staff.  You could sub Jimmy G. for Teddy B., Mitch T., Mariota, Wentz, doesnt matter, whoever it is, Idont care, the point was the team should be primed for a vet to step in and compete if Zach is a bust.  Again this is hypothetical.  Not a suggestion or a request, just a fall back plan with a random name that could be subbed with anyone.  I would just prefer not to have what would be a loaded team anchored down by another rookie. 

    Kaepernick led Harbaugh's team to the SB.  How is that remotely relevant?  lol

    Were they sucessful because of him or was it bc of Deebo and Bosa and Co?   I saw him throw a brutal pick in the NFC Championship game.

    I'm not really interested in discussing the greatness or lack there of Jimmy G.  Again, I just proposed a hypothetical scenario, so I used a simple hypothetical name considering the connection to the system and the fact he's floating around.  

    That said, since trading for Jimmy G.  San Fran is 24-9 in games he plays and 7-26 in the games he missed.  So yeah, I'd say he was an enormously large part of their success.

    Wasnt around to see him play but his legacy carried on through the years.  There will always be that person who says, Jordan?  LeBron?  Russell is the GOAT.  Cant imagine what he had to go through playing in that city during that era.  RIP to a beautiful man.  88 is a great run.

    i urge any basketball fan to take a good look at bill russell and then michael jordan and see which one is the greatest of all time (so far).  imo russell was much better.  he had more offense than people talk about and played against stiffer competition.  jordan maybe should be considered the best at his position.

    the nba lost one of it's truly great players and people.  russell played with honor and dignity.

    Yep, let's bring in the guy SF is desperate to move away from 

    It's a hypothetical scenario w/ a hypothetical QB that is easy to use because of the connection.  Calm your t!ts.

    That said, just because they're "desperate" (they werent too desperate riding him to the NFCC game last year) doesnt mean it's the right move.  Time will tell.  San Fran has been awful without Jimmy G. starting.  So even in this hypothetical scenario, the Jets could do a lot worse than a QB who has led his team to a Super Bowl and has 33-14 starting record including 5-2 in the playoffs and is only 30 years old.

    Finally watched the two episodes.  Here's what I think the Gus interaction was all about.  First..  there is not too much of a role left for him in BCS for the remainder of  season.  We may see him with Walter White and Jesse at some point, but briefly I would think.  For the most part, he is done, and this was for adding depth and character development there after everything he brought to BB and BCS.  Gus has to stop himself from what could be a pleasant relationship, perhaps sexual (as many thought in BB), despite his pleasure at the wine and with the conversation as a whole.  He can't engage in anything personal or socially deep because of what he does and who he is.  That pretty much wraps up Gus' storyline for the series I think.

    Also, similar for Mike.  There isn't much left for him on this season.  He was told to go find a new engineering crew and that's his role now that Lalo is resolved.  We will not be seeing much of Mike (perhaps again with Walter White and Jesse). Mike is so deeply flawed.  Between his murder of the German engineer and perhaps here he is trying to make good on all his horrible bad and  his obvious guilt.  Mike has chosen his path by breaking bad so to speak and this shows there is no return.  Never. There is really nothing left for him this season.  Neither Gus nor Mike can be brought into the Gene era so that's a wrap for them.  These were their farewells I think.

     

    Interesting takes, definitely agree 100% on Gus.  That was his farewell.  One of the greatest villains ever written.

    I'm not sure that was Mike's goodbye, so to speak.  Maybe.  He one of the greatest death moments in TV history "would you just shut the **** up and let me die in peace", was like the best send off ever.  lol   Idk, I feel like we see him again.

    Kim is the one I'm curious about.  Was that her send off?  It cant be, right?

    The reports out of camp so far are that Fields has been playing well, but its day 4 or 5 of practice, so take it with a grain of salt. 

    That's what I keep hearing as well.  Just a totally different level of confidence.  Wonder if the offense geared for him or just comfort is the catalyst.  I actually just saw a piece on him, former Jets from last years squad Ryan Griffin is saying he's never a met a more focused player.  Thought that was interesting considering he's played with Wilson and my former love affair, Watson.  That said, the Bears are awful and I think they've proper ****ed Fields.  He has the worst OL in the league with really nothing to throw to other than Mooney.  If they even sniff .500, Fields might be in the MVP conversation.  That offense is hot garbage.

    The biggest mistake this team made this draft was not getting Zander Horvath. He’s legitimately gonna be a weapon. Kyle Juszcyk type with more running ability, would’ve made our backfield the best in the league.

    Not everyday you here someone claim, not taking the 260th overall player in the draft was a mistake.  lol  Where would the Jets have taken him considering their last pick was 117?

    @JiFapono you totally nailed it that his top 5-100 changes with mood. 

    Currently my top 5 has to be:

    Ziggy

    Queen Bitch

    Rock n Roll Suicide

    Sound and Vision (probably my favorite) 

    Life on Mars 

     

     

    It 100% changes, there was a time in my life when I was grieving a lot, saying goodbye to people forever and it like didnt stop for a while and it just sucked.  At that time, Seven, was the greatest song ever written.

    I think a lot of the reasons (read: excuses) for a lot of Zach’s failures last year are valid, but that this year he really needs to show some significant improvement. I’ve been complaining about the weapons since Sanchez, at least. These guys have really gone out of their way to genuinely bolster the entire offense around Wilson. The only knock on the talent is their youth. That’s it. He needs to perform. 
     
    I don’t have an answer for how bad he’ll have to be for how long for them to end the experiment. Hopefully we won’t find out because my guess is longer than the majority of us would like. 
     
    I’m also of the opinion that if he doesn’t work out they bring in a veteran to either push or replace him. I don’t see another QB drafted high too soon. And I don’t want to. 

    Sure but the good news is, this year, the only rookies that should see time are a RB (which really doesnt have a learning curve) and a WR, who the Jets can fortunately bring along if necessary.  The rest of offense is pretty seasoned, the OL, the TE's, Davis/Berrios and Moore in 2nd year.  It's a much better balance this year, IMO.

    The downfall of the "ride or die" concept is that it will not elevate the reputation of this team hence attracting the bottom tier of free agency. 

    Meh, it's ride or die right now and they had a great offseason signing veteran guys like Tomlinson, Uzomah, Conklin, Whitehead, Reed, Alexender, etc.  IMO the difference this time around is that you could attract and maybe hit lightening in the bottle with a veteran QB who could also inspire some hope.  I think it's reasonable to assume, that say if the Jets landed Jimmy G. as an example, some players might be more amped to give a run with him than Wilson.
