  1. '06 gave us D'Brick, Mangold, Brad Smith, Leon '07 gave us Revis and Harris As much as I love Alijah, Elijah, and MC - '21 gave us the 2021 worst QB in the league. Not comparable. Hopefully Wilson gets better.
  2. Rodgers just won back to back at ages 37 and 38. Brady's the first to do it and that's great, but his records won't last long and his longevity stats won't be unrivaled for very long. Between the rule changes, the protection of the QBs, medical technology advances, and HGH - there are going to be lots of instances of great QBs playing longer.
  3. To be clear, all of this can be pinned to bad ownership and leadership. Zach sucked last year. The tape, the numbers, the rankings all bear that out. Deshaun was a top 5 QB the last time he played in the NFL, and is still on the right side of 30. The Jets have the firepower to go get him and all it would cost them is the ability to select in the first round this year. They’d still have all the other picks, wouldn’t put future picks in jeopardy, and would still have all the cap space to build around him this year alone. Putting all of the off-field stuff to the side, your post is exactly what is wrong with this team and what has held us back for literally generations.
  4. Zach, #4, #10 to unload a player that Houston wants nothing to do with. No one else will be able to come close to matching that kind of firepower. Get it done Tanny JD!
  5. I'm good with parting with Zach Wilson, our #4, and our 1st rounder next year. Hell, throw in our 2nd this year too. Get Deshaun to NYJ!
  6. I'm a big no for Lockett - especially if it means giving up picks. He's bordering on old in WR years, and while he's always had ability, even with a borderline future HoFer throwing him the ball, he'd disappear in far too many games over the years. At their best, Diggs was a level above Lockett, and Hopkins was a full tier above them both. Both were younger when they got traded too. Not exactly apples to apples on the comps.
  7. I don't know Joe White Shoes. I'm not in the Seattle or NYJ front offices. I'm saying Noah Fant is an interesting player and it be a great get if we somehow ended up with him. I'll leave it to the folks who get paid to determine if that's a viable possibility.
  8. That's the first thing I thought of when I saw he was part of the trade. Would be a great get.
  9. Man, if we could sign Njoku and Cooper with all of the cap space we have, it'll do so much for this team and the rest of the offseason: Cooper is an elite route runner. This is huge for a young QB who needs to trust that his receivers are going to be where they should be. Cooper would instantly make the other WRs because he would automatically attract opposing CB1s. In cases of zone defense, Cooper can be moved around to take advantage. Having legit receiving threats such as Cooper, Njoku, and Moore makes the running game better because defenses aren't going to stack the box as frequently. These two signings would immediately and automatically open up the entire draft board. Screw it - go Edge on both #4 and #10 if it makes sense! This is why we've been cutting and carrying cap space for years. Moments like these. To help your young QB out. Don't get cheap, JD!
  10. I've always wondered how a prospect would feel after all their hard work and sacrifices to finally get to that point in life and get picked wherever they get picked in the draft, only to get a call from the Jets/Lions/Browns of the NFL. I've thought about it myself within my industry. I don't know, I'd be pretty bummed - but then I look at the paychecks and think, meh I guess I'll just treat it like a job!
  11. Hahaha. Me, my wife, and our families going back many generations are all vegetarians (it's not a fad for us, it's a way of life). Our Thanksgivings typically consist of a potluck "tapas" style dinner where everyone brings one or two appetizers/sides and we all fill up. I actually really love it. One year, someone had the grand idea to try Tofurkey. I hated it so much. I wouldn't wish it on anyone - vegetarians included!
  12. For various reasons, very rarely do I follow a show in real time. Off the top of my head, I can think of maybe 7-10 shows over the last 15 years that I kept up with on the actual premier dates. Sometimes it's because I don't have access to the show until it hits one of the major streaming platforms. Lots of times it's because I simply wasn't aware that it was something I should/would care about. Generally though, it's a simple case of just not having the time or desire to commit. Other than 1883 over the last few months, the only other shows I've watched in real-time over the last 4-5 years are Better Call Saul and The Boys. I just found out that both of them are finally coming back with new episodes starting April, after almost a 2 year absence. Although I absolutely cannot wait, I have no idea how on earth I'm going to manage. Serious first world problems over here.
  13. How about the Jets playing and Tofurkey on your plate?
  14. Finally saw the last two episodes. Really enjoyed the entire season. Some episodes were obviously better than others, but there wasn't a single bad episode all season. Sam Elliot was awesome throughout. Tim McGraw was great in most of his role, but you can clearly see his acting limitations when it came to the 2-3 emotional scenes he had over the course of the season. The cinematography was absolutely beautiful throughout. It added so much to the story that it almost washed out some of the logical inconsistencies of the final 2-3 episodes when they were clearly rushing to the finish line. Haven't seen it, but based on what I've read it looks good. Either way, I'd suggest 1883. By all accounts, even though it's a prequel, it's very different.
  15. I just started the original Vikings last week, and this popped up as a new series this week. I gotta find time to watch it all!
  16. I love the Big East and am so glad we came back. This was the most fun I’ve had watching a UConn game since 2014.
  17. Yea, I’m not sure what I’m going to do about my JN name. ProsperJetsFan just sounds too…unreal.
  18. Love Austin, but couldn’t make it work with the family - so we’re moving to Prosper as soon as your new build is finished (hopefully around May). Looking forward to all of this with two very young rugrats.
  19. At a sports bar in Masshole country visiting my in-laws. Baby and toddler asleep with their mom and grandparents. No sports at the sports bar, so I just watched the NBA all star game. I’m 1 7.5% abv craft beer in, and I think I might go for a second. sh*ts about to get wild. Stay tuned.
  20. So you're saying that we are "just a few pieces away from contention" and should be going in all season?
  21. Fair enough. We disagree. Short of Zach becoming Peyton in Peyton's second year, I don't see Godwin justifying his price (pick+$$) on the Jets. Entirely different offense from what Arians ran which doesn't necessarily play to Godwin's strengths. And this is all assuming Godwin will be all the way back from the ACL.
  22. His production was WR1 but he wasn't going up against CB1s, and they played in a high volume pass attack which resulted in Jameis throwing 30tds but also 30ints. I don't want to give up draft capital + $$$ for 2019 production when I know that it's not going to be replicated in 2022 or beyond with the Jets. All else being equal, I'd much rather trade the 10 to DAL for Cooper, knowing that DAL is looking to get out of that contract. And if he ends up just getting cut, I'd rather throw tons of cash at him and preserve the 10 for a trench player in the draft.
  23. Why is this a thing? He's played on stacked teams with aggressive vertical playcalling where he was never the #1 option. Over the last two years, he also had a HoF QB throwing him the ball. I don't see any of that translating to WR1 on the Jets. Plus, he's coming off an ACL. We're not seeing the same thing.
