  1. I saw this clip on an insta meme account and it triggered arguments I had on this board with you Fido, so I took screenshots and now have to post it :D

    It’s all good man. We’ve all been wrong. For instance, after the final 4 games of Darnold’s rookie year, I thought he was it. The chosen one. Clearly that’s not the case, and maybe it’s true  that Darnold got a dealt a sh*t hand here and it ruined his fundamentals and confidence and completely changed his career trajectory and led him to bust. Either way, I was 100% for moving on and drafting Fields after the first few weeks of year 3.

    Hopefully Zach is behind us, and White can at least provide a high floor to allow the rest of the offense to develop, and we try again this offseason.

  2. Not sure how I missed this thread over the last two weeks, but I'm sure glad I did. I'd have accumulated a lot of downvotes over two weeks from anyone who was high on Zach or ready to give/take lumps. The Bills game was a step forward in that he didn't **** anything up against a really good opponent, but he still didn't show that he was anything near a FQB. And now here we are, two steps back, arguing about whether his teammates are even allowed to be mad at him for being awful and not taking accountability.

    If we won a SB, I wouldn't care what they'd think.  Though I still think they'd hate seeing TB12 in Jet green.

    Winning a SB is the end goal, but as a fan, I'm not being remunerated for it like a player or coach. It doesn't add any tangible value to my life or my family's lives.

    I'm here for the journey. I'm here to be a fan of the players and the team and to talk about them with my friends or on here with you strangers. That's why even though the Jets haven't been to the super bowl in my lifetime or been to the playoffs in over a decade, I'm still here. If only winning a SB mattered, I'd have jumped ship years ago. Instead, while I'm upset that we didn't win in '09 or '10, I still have a lot of love for those seasons. The 2015 Jets pats game where we beat them in week 15 and knocked them out of home field advantage in the playoffs (thereby allowing the AFCCG to be played in Denver where the pats can't cheat as effectively) is one of my favorite wins.

    I love rooting for guys like Jerricho and Mangold, and more recently Breece and Sauce and Mann. I also love hating the pats and brady. That's why I'm here on the forums, that's why I rock Jets gear and watch their games. Winning a SB with brady does nothing for me. I would hate every minute of that journey.

    Our specials have been awesome this year, that last play excluded.

    If we had a QB that wasn't worse than the worst starting QBs in the league, the specials wouldn't even have been in that situation.

    no, the specials have not been awesome during his tenure.  fg kicking is good this year but we have had to go through about 5 kickers in three years,  punting and net punting has been poor all years.  berrios was good last year but a total non factor this year.

    The beautiful part is that Pats fans would be so hurt if TB12 played for the green and white.  And if he were to win a SB with us, it would burn them so badly.  I love the revenge angle.  Plus sports is entertainment.  It would be hilarious if TB12 finished his career here.  

    You clearly don't have any pats friends or fans. They don't get burned. They just move the goal posts. They're never wrong and they always win.

    If that scumbag were to win a SB with the Jets, pats fans would revel in it. They'd forget that they're supposed to hate us, and instead make it about how we needed brady to save us. **** him and **** them.

    And very luckily for Brent Boyer and the specials the qb is totally the punching bag when they in fact gave up a horrible game winning kick returner with seconds left.

    The lack of awareness in this situation is alarming and I'd be offended too, G. Wilson said it wasnt good enough, Saleh called it dog sh*t and Zach was like nah, it was the wind.  He's the leader of the team and he took no accountability.  He just made Saleh's job that much harder, not sure how he smooths this over to be honest.  

     

    I'm old enough to remember when he wasn't a captain at BYU and some of us saw that as a red flag and were lambasted for it.

  8. **** Bill Belichick. **** Robert Kraft. **** the patriots as a team, franchise, and as a mother****ing fanbase. And if you wanna be down with the cheaters, then **** you too. Mac Jones? **** you too! All you mother****ers, **** you too!

    They control their own destiny w/ what IMO, is the easier part of the schedule on the horizon.  Which is wild but if you ask me, the most important game left is this upcoming game vs. New England.  They have to get this monkey off their back.  I think losing this game could have some negative impacts.  I hope not because this seems like a tough, resilient team but you cant help to think it would be a very deflating loss to start the second half of the year and what should a very legitimate playoff/division championship run.

  10. I just went through a few posts on the first page and stopped. It's frightening how much misinformation there is about player deals despite it all being out there on the internet. And the amount of likes that those posts are getting are just individual confirmations that people will just blindly follow anything.

    For all the posts using GB as an example, you're 100% wrong. Davante Adams himself has admitted that GB offered him more money. Him not being there had nothing to do with them paying Aaron Rodgers.

    No, you shouldn't. 

    Look at the Aaron Rodgers situation. He wanted a big contract and in doing so they couldn't keep Adams. It's clear now that Adams was just as crucial to the team as Rodgers, and now they're in a pit with a big QB contract.

    If you look at players like Tom Brady he gets paid a lot but is willing to take cuts for his team. This is a sign of a QB who cares more about winning than making money.

    The Packers didn't lose Davante because of money issues. They offered him more than the Raiders. They lost him because (1) He was a Raiders fan growing up and always dreamt of playing for them, (2) his best friend and college QB happens to be the Raiders QB.

    Also, Brady has been getting paid under the table for his whole career and was married to a superstar wife. He had no problem not maximizing his on-the-table money. Most players don't enjoy those same benefits.

    You must not be familiar with my posts if you think I'm giving Douglas a pass for drafting Zach Wilson, I was one of the loudest people here during the draft process about how bad of a pick I thought it would be. 

    I almost get offended these days when I don't get lumped in with @jgb @munchmemory and @Jetsfan80

    Hey! Me too! I was probably the first in the draft forums to talk about how Trevor is not the generational talent they all want him to be, that Zach has tremendous flaws and should not be on our radar, and that if we want to go QB with #2 overall, it should be Justin. I feel like @JiFapono is the only one that remembers.

    F-Him he’s a Dolphin fan anyways. 

    I was young when the song came out...like 7 or 8. For a long time, I thought that the dolphins made him cry because he was just a measly blowfish getting bullied by the bigger stronger meaner dolphins. True story.

    First the actual question posed: Is Sauce Gardner the best Jets rookie of all time?

    The question isn't asking for an absolute value. It's asking for a subjective opinion, one which demands a comparison be made among a list of values.  The poster didn't ask what is Sauce's value in a vacuum simply for the sake of knowing Sauce's intrinsic value.   

    Having said that... Let's do it your way. How would you compute the absolute value for your best jets rookie of all time? Does it involve a list of variables that when inserted into your formula spits out an absolute value, or do you just make up the number out of thin air? Maybe some of us have different variables and weights assigned to them.  See where we're going here.... I'm arguing that my formula is different than what others may use.

    So - you spent a bunch of words on conflating statements just to end up saying exactly what I said:

    You're arguing on behalf of relative value. The thread/post is asking about absolute value.

    Glad we're on the same page. 

  15. Love Sauce, but Breece was just getting started man. He was a lock for OROY, and would have been in consideration for an All Pro as a rookie. He also would have been the entire offensive identity for the Jets. That would have been hard to beat.

    I'm still not over the Breece injury. I don't think I ever will be. He was the best thing about this team since 2010, and he single handedly pulled me back into just simply being an innocent fan of the team again.

    Think it's possible with Mahomes mostly because he's paired with GOAT HC. As long as Reid is around, he'll continue to do amazing things (and i'm sure well after Reid too). Just like Brady did with Belicheck. Rodgers probably would've won multiple rings in NE too. 

    Peyton is my GOAT. Will never change. Don't care. 

    This has been my stance for most of my life (most of my life unfortunately coinciding with Brady's entire career). So many reasons as to why - the biggest being what he was able to do with pretty bad teams and coaches.

    Still, for the simplistic crowd, here's a fun fact that everyone seems to forget/not know: Peyton is 3-2 all time against brady and beli in the playoffs. The only 2 times brady ever beat peyton in the playoffs were when beli's videotaping was at its peak and completely unchecked by the league.
