  1. For the first time in a while it feels like there's some decent depth. Possibly with the exception of CB (where we do have a lot of young guys though) this is probably the most comfortable I've been with the second team guys. A few thoughts.... 1. We need to remember that there will be some scheme versatility here. I'm not going to try to predict if it's 80/20, 60/40, etc. but we will see some 4-3 during games and it will be more than just a play or two. In that regard, QW becomes a bigger weapon. I think he's a natural 3-technique in a 4-3 and lining him up next to a big NT body like Fatukasi would be fun. The challenge we run into a bit is with the outside rush and a lack of true 4-3 DEs who play down. Maybe I'm not giving them enough credit but Anderson (3-4 DE), Jenkins (OLB), Basham, etc. aren't perfect for that role. We might need to rely on Zuniga early on, even though he too is more of a versatile DLine guy and not a pure down DE in a 4-3. 2. If Jamal Adams is a Jet this season I wouldn't be surprised to see Adams, Maye and rookie Ashtyn Davis on the field at the same time a little more often than we think. This could be a VERY versatile Secondary and the addition of Desir while retaining Poole and having a fully healthy Bless Austin makes it easy to say that the 3rd level of the D could be the group that exceeds expectations. 3. On paper, this Defense is stacked with both proven players (Adams, Mosley, Maye, Williamson, etc.) and some really exciting new and relatively new guys like Quinnen Williams, Zuniga, Davis, Austin, Bryce Huff, etc. If things break right for the Jets (they never do!) and we simply get good health and an average progression of what you'd expect from rookies into their second year like Williams, Austin, etc. then Gregg Williams could make this group elite.
  2. Mahomes is at least standing for a principle. Even if I don't support it I understand it to a degree. Jamal is standing because he wants money two years before he's eligible to get it. He's saying Pay Me.
  3. This. The Jets are in charge. They can wait until a November trade deadline and then some team on the cusp of competing for a Super Bowl that sees Jamal putting them over the top will come calling. If the 4-5 Jets get a phone call from the 6-3 Cowboys or the 7-2 Packers who are "all in" on a Super Bowl this year then the price will be high for the player AND the Jets will have a much better idea of where the Draft picks being returned will sit (ex. later than 20th in those situations).
  4. Playing a game of Chicken with Jamal Adams about him asking for a trade, the Jets holding pat, Jamal holding out for training camp or even some games, etc. will almost definitely work out in the Jets favor. I don't see Jamal "winning" unless the Jets either sign him to a mutually agreeable contract (~$15M per year or thereabouts) or the Jets trading him for a big return. But in either of those cases....the Jets win too. Also, it's not like we're talking about a potential Super Bowl team in the Jets here. Jamal holding out hurts the chances of winning but in my opinion, it was much more effective when Revis was holding out from a team that was Super Bowl caliber. In that situation, losing a game or two because of not having a single dominant player could keep you out of the playoffs or out of a Bye. It just don't see that type of consequence with Jamal holding out. In fact, it could benefit the Jets by getting a better look at what a Maye / Davis combination could do. Just my two cents.
  5. Exactly. What are they going to say? "We're really trying to get rid of this guy. Offer us a Long Snapper and a 2023 4th Round pick and he's yours" ? All of this talk is simply to convey that the coaches want Adams and the price should be high to pry him out of Gregg Williams' hands. Probably sets up some classic good cop (coaches)/bad cop (GM) situations with potential trade partners.... Douglas to another GM: "I'm not saying that Jamal is unavailable but the coaches here love him and Gregg Williams is designing a defense around this guy. It will take a LOT for me to say yes and then have to break the news to this coaching staff that I just took away their best player."
  6. Same here. You don't have to be a fan of Gase to be sick and tired off all this backstabbing and anonymous source crap against the HC. Gase may be a bad head coach....but he's OUR bad head coach!!! And nobody talks behind his back. They should just tell him he sucks to his face. #FManish
  7. His career was short but eventful! 2 AFC championship games and 1 ass ramming!
  8. https://www.star-telegram.com/sports/nfl/dallas-cowboys/article243746147.html Encountered bear and cub while on scooter.. Dallas Cowboys safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has experience with bears, but this is taking it a little too far. The 2016 Pro Bowl defensive back who played with the Chicago Bears in 2019 posted surveillance video footage on Instagram at what is presumably his house. In the video clip, Clinton-Dix is seen rolling up his driveway on a scooter and is startled by a mama bear and her cub who had wandered up the drive from the other end. Clinton-Dix doesn’t see the bears until he rolls up next to a car, which is parked in front of the home’s front door. The Bears had strolled to the back of the car when Clinton-Dix rolls up, sees them, and quickly hops off the scooter, which rolls errantly in the general direction of the bears, who then scamper off in the other direction. “Gotta be ready to go,” Clinton-Dix posted with the video. “A lil high on my flip turn but the drive was there.” He tagged the message with #safetyfirst and #Bear, among others. Clinton-Dix has been in the league six seasons, including starting all 16 games for the Bears in 2019.
  9. Exactly. All of these guys who feel like they’ve outplayed their contracts are starting to b!tch and threaten hold outs. We should all try this at work and see how it goes.
  10. Come join me in the JAAZ! (Jamal Adams Autonomous Zone) No laws, no contracts, no GMs, no coaches.....pure anarchy!
  11. Yup. My approach would be....don’t change a thing. He’s under contract for 2 more years. He’s expected to show up and play. Communicate that definitively to him and his agent. Then focus on the rest of the team. Does Jamal know that these are the Jets we’re talking about? This team has had drama for decades....it’s nothing new and I don’t think it will sway Joe D one way or the other. Jamal’s demands are really just sugar for him, Jets fans and the media. Quite honestly, I don’t think Joe D is staying awake at night over this and Gregg Williams will simply coach him whenever he’s on the field.
  12. Don’t know Ertz’s contract situation but Ertz and a 1st for a TE-loving coach like Gase might get it done. I’d be interested because of Julie.
  13. Haven’t been on the Forum too much lately as we’ve been doing some family staycation time, but now caught up on most of the Jamal threads. Is the gist of the situation now that Jamal would like to be traded because the Jets haven’t given him a big contract offer and that the Jets are essentially holding the line and willing to let him play out the next season (or two)? We’ve had rumors of “listening to trade offers” from last November, Jamal tweeting/Snap chatting/Facebooking/Instagramming/TikTok’ing his passive-aggressive unhappiness with the Jets and his contract situation, the Jets basically saying nothing and being perfectly happy to let a player under contract for several more years continue to play, etc. In other words, aren’t we in exactly the same situation we’ve always been?
