  1. Imagine if we were sitting here watching both Leo and Jamal seeking $18-20M per year each when neither of them do the key things you’d expect for their positions (DL getting sacks, DB getting INTs). That would have been so Jetsy.
  2. I can't complain about Toronto and Edmonton being selected. Seem like logical choices in terms of safety and east/west travel, although teams in the far south could be making a long trip. But that's not a big deal, they're only traveling their once and then staying inside "the bubble," right?
  3. We're all very different people. We're not Watusi. We're not Spartans. We're Americans, with a capital 'A', huh? You know what that means? Do ya? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We're the underdog. We're mutts! Here's proof: his nose is cold! But there's no animal that's more faithful, that's more loyal, more loveable than the mutt. Who saw "Old Yeller?" Who cried when Old Yeller got shot at the end?...Nobody cried when Old Yeller got shot? I'm sure...I cried my eyes out. So we're all dogfaces, we're all very, very different, but there is one thing that we all have in common: we were all stupid enough to enlist in the Army. We're mutants. There's something wrong with us, something very, very wrong with us. Something seriously wrong with us - we're soldiers. But we're American soldiers! We've been kicking ass for 200 years! We're 10 and 1! Now we don't have to worry about whether or not we practiced. We don't have to worry about whether Captain Stillman wants to have us hung. All we have to do is to be the great American fighting soldier that is inside each one of us. Now do what I do, and say what I say. And make me proud. Happy Independence Day!
  4. Why not make the whole season something like MadMax/Thunderdome ? Every team gets a 3 game schedule. One game against each Division opponent. At the end the 3-0 teams get Byes, The 2-1 teams host the 1-2 teams in a 1st Round playoff. The 0-3 teams never play another game. It's single elimination after that. The math may not work perfectly and we could get odd numbers of teams, but we could even out the teams using tiebreakers like point differential, etc. Shorter season and It would be the most intense season ever, every game super critical. Essentially an NCAA style tournament after you get through those first three games. And, the intensity of those first 3 Division games would be great. A 1-1 Jets team playing an 0-2 NE team with the chance to eliminate them....sign me up!
  5. People say you need the dreaded "change of scenery"! lol Off to Detroit you go for a conditional 7th rounder.
  6. Is Beachum still available or did he sign somewhere? I had always thought the plan at LT should be to try to bring back Beachum on a 1 year deal while drafting a rookie like Becton, Thomas, etc. It would be like the Josh McCown to Sam Darnold transition.
  7. Fair assessment, although I partially disagree. I don't think Sam is a passenger on the bus who can only go as far as some superior talent around him takes him. I think he has the ability to make guys around him a little better, to create something out of nothing when plays break down, etc. Mark Sanchez was a passenger on the bus. Sam Darnold can be a bus driver. I'm just hoping that with Joe D at the helm we finally have some gas in the bus.
  8. With individual sports like tennis and golf having players affected it's almost inconceivable that sports involving teams of 25 -53 players + coaches and staffs will be able to get through a season. As a country, we haven't been able to resolve things on a month to month basis with lockdowns, reopenings, etc. How on earth is a league going to string together 4 months of continuous play? Even a limited spread of infection amongst something like 7 or 8 guys could doom a team. Imagine a team's whole linebacking corps getting sick and missing 2-4 weeks. I'm hopeful but very pessimistic about the chances of everything working out as planned.
  9. Beat you to it! Be careful, @Losmeister might accuse you of not reading it and your use of the word inflammatory.
  10. Booo! I read the whole thing. Did you read the title? That's the definition of an attention-grabbing hit piece. Is his talent salvageable?.... I mean really, is that even a fair question? It's like asking whether its possible Cam Newton is the starter this year for NE? OF COURSE its possible. OF COURSE Darnold can possibly be salvaged.
  11. LOL.... If Dr. Frankenstein were to ever cobble together the parts to construct the perfect anti-Jets person this sounds like it.
