  1. Right now Moore and AVT look as if they are the only two building block long term types on the offense. Carter is fine but you dont build around a back and they are at this point more or less a dime a dozen. Becton is far too injury prone to be considered a sure thing. We should know by next year if Wilson has a chance or will just be another in a long line of Jets QB flops.
  2. I dont think it would happen even if there was a great prospect this year but they should. That goes for just about any team that doesnt have a sure QB under center. The main reason teams could not swap out from 1st round QBs in the past was because of the contracts. That doesnt exist but every GM in the NFL is convinced you cant have competition at the position until the QB proves he sucks at which point they just do something desperate to try to salvage a job.
  3. This is such nonsense that the other GMs "didnt have a plan' or try to rebuild. Did their plans work? No they did not. But to claim they had no plan is insulting. Idzik tore the team apart into a rebuild far more than Joe Douglas has. Idzik probably went too far and alienated people in the building and the fanbase. The job was just too big. Maccagnan's first year he did what ownership wanted and everyone was in love with him for it. He did attempt to rebuild as well first with Hackenberg and then with Darnold. His strategy was to build a team via defense in the draft and keep getting en
  4. This is going to be rough for Douglas if Wilson struggles and the team continues to look inept this year. Realistically rookie struggles should be accepted but its just a weird spot because the team has been bad for so long. They have had no plan since 2013 and you cant expect everyone to be ok with "just wait until next year" when you have been hearing that for 8 of the last 9 years. At some point you have to put a product on the field that looks competent. He's probably not going to get the ultra kid gloves treatment that Maccagnan got as MM was pretty well liked by people who covered
  5. Much like Pete I expect Harbaugh to get another shot at the NFL. I dont expect it in NY. He doens't have the personality or temperament to really succeed here. I feel like he would wind up being the head coach version of John Idzik.
  6. Obviously this isnt a good look for Manish and I know most of the beat writers dont care for him because of how he operates. Just a few things on the combine chasing and stuff. The Combine itself is a bit of a cesspool. The kind of behavior described is not uncommon there though many take it less further than whatever was described here. People just wait in lobbies to see who comes in. They walk the bars to see who to try to bump into. If they see you with someone who is known they want to know who you are. Its a tough business. The beat guys have it incredibly tough. That doesnt j
  7. While I hope this is true, generally you are reaching out about candidates next year not this one and normally that doesnt start for at least another month even when you know the coach is like Adam Gase. Hopefully Im wrong though and the Jets are taking a different approach.
  8. Maye was the only bright spot. That was as bad an opener as I can remember post Kotite. If Allen doesnt fumble a few away and miss an easy TD thats a 20 point loss.
  9. The 2010 team was probably the best team but Im not sure if they would have won the Super Bowl or not. They should have beaten the Steelers if not for the Pats game hangover. The 98 team would have destroyed the Falcons. Should have won in Denver. That game got away from them due to a handful of plays and the top 2 offensive players didnt have good games.
  10. I think these burner type accounts are pretty common. It pretty much harmless and if anything kind of funny. Id be stunned if there were not friends/family/etc... buddies of Maccagnan that did the same. There were so many people who would rush to his aid and most (not all) just vanished after he got fired. The stuff I would say about the Jets basically hasnt changed so its not like they were ultra Jets fans coming to the defense of the Jets. Just the Maccagnan Jets and they apparently lost their fandom after he was canned. Tons of team people have social media accounts under various name
  11. My interest in the Jets is pretty much at an all time low. Some of that is just getting older and having other priorities but the last 8 or 9 years have just been a groundhogs day of awful. The coaching is terrible. The general talent level is terrible. The QB hasnt shown anything outstanding yet. About the only positive is that I hear nothing but good things about JD from people outside the team. But this has basically been a doormat of a franchise since 2012 and one of the worst in the NFL during that time
  12. That is how it would work. The Jets would basically carry him on the roster for all of 2020 and then release him at some point in 2021. Its exactly why Kam Chancellor stuck around on the Seahawks long after he was done, Alex Smith is still on the Redskins, etc...And yep a really bad deal.
  13. I think he played ok last night with far less bad throws than usual, but at the moment hes just a guy. He struggled with the blitz pickups which is on him and the staff. The Ravens blitz all the time and inexplicably they werent ready for that. Still when you start making the excuses that he needs all these pieces around him it just means you dont think he can win games for the team. This is the same drama that we went through with Sanchez. He needs a new coordinator. He needs better receivers. He needs a better pass catcher out of the backfield. Rex just cant coach offense and is holding him
  14. How does anyone watch Sam Darnold through two years and get a Brett Favre comparison? Maybe Eli Manning or Christian Ponder. Hes better than Sanchez and Geno, but right now hes just a guy out there. Makes some nice throws. Makes some bad ones. But hes not relying on his arm the way Cutler or Favre did and Mahomes does now thinking he can sneak something in and it doesnt get there. Typically they are just bad decisions,. Hopefully he gets better. The coaching staff is doing him no favors but right now there is nobody from the top of that draft class that stands out as a positive but only
  15. Id think most of these are realistic. Just two things to note- the June 1 is not going to be available to teams if a new CBA is not reached. Using the June 1 also would require keeping Johnsons full cap charge on the books until June 2. The other is that Enunwa has a bunch of injury protection in his deal. Based on what it seems his health is like Im not sure he can be cut. It was a bad deal when signed and made much worse by the fact he got hurt again.
