  1. Dolphins had Marino. Bills had Kelly. Patriots have Brady. All in the last 30 years. Jets are due. Maybe one day Darnold ends up on this list, and we can all look back and think how lucky we were to have him. One can dream.
  2. It doesn't make me sick, but it should be taken with a grain of salt. Bottom line, the Jets need to prove something on the field before summer fluff pieces carry any weight. Just my opinion, but there is more hope going into this season than any other season since 2010. If Darnold takes a step forward and becomes a top tier QB, then playoffs are certainly a possibility in a league full of parity. The Jets tend to do well in the first year of a coaching change (Parcells, Herm, Mangini, Rex, Bowles). I wouldn't be surprised if it happens again.
  3. I would have ranked the Jets at 31 last year, but with the addition of Bell, Mosely, Crowder, Osemele, and Q Williams, they should be ranked higher this year. At the end of the day, the Jets need to prove it on the field so I don't really have any issues with it. OL and CB are the biggest concerns in my opinion. If Darnold takes a step forward and develops into a top 5 or 10 QB, he's going to make everyone else look better. He's the key.
  4. Interesting comments from someone who has been with two other top notch organizations in his career. We'll see how things go, but I'm hoping to see a rejuvenated team that puts the "play not to lose" attitude behind them.
  5. Sam Darnold is the key. I think competing for a wildcard is more realistic this year, but if Sam takes his game to a top 5 or top 10 level, anything is possible. This team is young and hungry. I think the no nonsense demeanors of Gase and Williams are going to go a long way with this team.
  6. It's June 6. I have absolutely no issue with a team building event at this stage. This team needs culture change. There are new coaches, systems, and players in place at all levels. Getting to know each other, having some fun together off the field, and building camaraderie are all very positive things that can go a long way toward success. If they are going to do it, now is the time with the season still 3 months away and only being allowed to practice in shorts anyway.
  7. Herndon showed some promise as a rookie, but some of these predictions are a little outlandish. He's going to be suspended and miss a portion of the season. The Jets signed Bell and Crowder, both of whom soak up a ton of targets. Enunwa will be back healthy. There are simply too many factors working against Herndon to expect a monster season. Last year he had 39 receptions for 502 yards and 4 TD. I think this is a reasonable expectation for him this season as well.
  8. The head coach sets the tone for the team. I'm so glad we never have to watch Bowles standing on the sideline like an emotionless statue again. Show some energy, show some fire, fight for your team. It really does rub off on your players when you show that you care.
  9. I'm not a big fan of Manish, but everything he stated is fact. He's actually not giving an opinion on the subject at all in this particular tweet. Gase is taking the bull by the horns despite what he says publicly about his desired role. Personally, I'm fine with it.
  10. Beat me to it. Richie Anderson was an absolutely integral part of the 1998 and 2002 teams. One of the best "skill" full backs I've ever seen play the game.
  11. I wouldn't be surprised. The Jets do relatively well in the first year of a new coaching staff (Parcells, Edwards, Mangini, Rex, Bowles). Darnold is going into his second year, and Bell is a game changer. Mosley and Adams are going to make this defense competitive. They are a couple of years away from being championship caliber, but in a league full of parity, playoffs are not out of the question.
  12. @Beerfish, is this your own research? If so, thanks for taking the time to put it together. In today's NFL, the OL is the most important position group behind QB. The blatant disregard for putting resources into this unit is mind boggling.
  13. Sounds about right. Let's trade away picks and sink more resources into the defense. Typical Jets.
  14. I would love to snag Jawaan Taylor or A.J. Brown, but if it's going to cost alot of picks, forget about it. This team has too many holes. They are not one player away.
