  1. The bolded two items are opposites, yet they are being used to describe the same person just one sentence apart. I'm confused.
  2. Wholeheartedly agree with everything outside of the bold. I don't agree that the two are mutually exclusive. I think trading up at the right price for the right player is part of the process. Not trading away premium picks for big names and bigger contracts is also part of the "process". I also think that JD knew that he already had a mostly full TC roster, and that if he continued to simply take players, he'd eventually have to get rid of them anyway - so rather trade up for quality. As fans of the Jets who have been bad at so many positions for so many years, the mentality is always quantity>quality, but for years I've been toying with the idea that better teams know when to take quality over quantity. That's not to say that the Jets are a good team right now, but it's to say that he knows from his own experiences in Balt and Philly that there isn't only one way to approach the draft. The best strategy is blending the two to allow for flexibility when it's necessary. For the most part, I like what JD has done. He's definitely the best GM we've had in a long time, but again that's not saying much. However, it won't mean anything if it doesn't translate into Ws. And right now, the Jets record with JD as GM is absolutely horrific.
  3. Do it. I created gmail addresses for my son and daughter a few days after each was born, and I’ve been sending them quick messages. Nothing extravagant yet as they’re 2 and 1 respectively, but just a quick thought or recap of something that happened. I’m excited to relive those moments with them when they grow up.
  4. Would love a quality QB to go with all of the awesome OL and Weapinz picks the last few years. Might be able to find one tomorrow.
  5. Who’s ratings are those and how are they derived? What jumps out immediately is Saquan at #2 overall, while everyone else is late 1st or early/mid 2nd round. Just reinforces what some of us have been saying for years about a running back’s value proposition. Hopefully Breece lives up to the billing. I’m excited.
  6. Strong Herm Edwards vibes. Player coach through and through, great salesman, culture changer. These types are great in the beginning, but they typically have a ceiling and when they’re unable to break through the ceiling, their act gets old. That’s where I am with Hurley right now. Hurley is fine with the X’s and O’s. He generally has good strategies to start games. But he’s awful at in-game coaching - whether it’s adjusting on the fly, timeout management, or having a pulse on the game. In his years here, we’ve squandered too many big leads, lost too many close games, and generally underachieved far too often for there not to be a trend. The singular big game that UConn has won since he joined the program was this year against yall, and he was watching from the locker room as Kimani led us to the W. Needless to say, I’m over him.
  7. Pretty short offense too. Zack, Elijah, Braxton, Wilson. Not a critique, just an observation.
  8. Great tourney all the way around. Definitely surprised by Wright's retirement. Furious with Dan Hurley. For sake of argument, I'll say that I started following UConn as a legit fan in '96 around the time I turned 10. Between '96-'20, I had never seen UConn underachieve to the degree that we have under Hurley two years in a row. I'd seen many overachievements. The only obvious disappointment was the George Mason year. Last year with the first round exit, and this year losing to mother****ing NM State who only had 1 actual player playing.....just unacceptable. At least when the lady huskies lost in the championship game, they lost to the clearly better and healthier opponent. The worst part? The best mens coach is the highly sought after assistant who will leave for a HC job somewhere this year, and we'll be stuck with Hurley for years to come.
  9. I'd say if our draft picks turned into sure things, I'd definitely do it. However, looking at the history of the league, that doesn't seem to be the case. Our history specifically, is even worse than the collective league's history. So, no.
  10. They’ll need a cover now that he’s completed a full year of the HGH routine. Brady had TB12 as his cover, I guess Mac’s will be training with olympians.
  11. Deebo, AJ, and Terry are all not participating. Still hoping we can acquire either AJ or Terry.
  12. Hate the Raiders, but their fans have every single reason to be optimistic. A top 10 QB, top 2 WR, top 3 TE, top 7 RB, and a great offensive mind calling the shots. I wouldn't even begin to know how excited I'd be if the Jets ever put something like that together. The people hating on Carr probably are the same ones who think Zach Wilson is the next Patrick Mahomes. Meanwhile, I'd give up so much for Zach Wilson to become Derek Carr. Unfortunately, everything he's put on tape looks more like David Carr.
  13. 100%, true. Thoughts in my head since reading that about an hour ago: A stripper trying to perform on the pole with parts of multiple chickens popping out of multiple parts of her g-string The line outside of the strip club with people corralling multiple chickens waiting to get in Waitresses attempting to navigate through a packed strip club with humans and chickens The blended smell of stripper juices, perfume, and a chicken coop The nearby gas station which keeps reserves of chickens so that when guys want to go to the strip club and only have cattle, ox, or pig, they can stop and exchange them for chickens to be used in g-strings The velocity of stripper chickens
