  1. That’s because you’re watching a pr coverup. This is about as bad as the black sox scandal with two of the last three world series winners being cheaters. manfred wants damage control so who takes the fall? The GM and manager of each team. Pretty convenient that the fall guys are the guys without collective bargaining power huh? Players have the players association who i’m sure would go the nuclear option and would be difficult to control. And here are the owners who conveniently get to look like the good guys by “volunteering” to fire the guys. “Ignorance is not an excuse” yet Crane got a shoutout for “not being aware it was happening”. They are banking on the managers of these teams not to spill the beans by holding this looming suspension over their heads. I think Manfred is bungling this. He should have just brought in an independent investigator and gone ham on punishments to prove that this has severe consequences. Similar to what Adam silver did for donald sterling. The way it is now, it’s going to be death by a thousand paper cuts with the truth eventually leaking out as people will lose the incentive to be quiet. Teams have a gag order right now but they are steaming at the light punishment the Astros received.
  2. Rhule took over a program that had Scholarship sanctions against it and turned it into a competitive program within two years. That’s impressive no matter what he ends up doing in the NFL. He’ll never coach here so that’s a moot point, but the Jets more than anything need a strong culture and identity.
  3. I’m sorry, are we allowed to fill our biggest needs in the draft?
  4. Forgot about that dude. Or Walter Thomas cartwheeling at Like 400 lbs back in the day.
  5. I just don’t understand the need for hyperbole or trying to crown somebody based off of potential. Darnold has to prove it over and over. He hasn’t yet. Not that hard. Getting so emotional and biased about it is largely just blind fandom.
  6. This couldn’t be more spot on, signing Kalil wasn’t as big of a deal as playing his corpse out there for almost half a season. That type of thing is a culture destroyer. While we have been spoiled by basically two HOF centers, the other four spots should be priority, especially at both tackle spots , especially with how Gase wants his running game.
  7. That’s not the issue at hand in my opinion. The best person should get the job, that is indisputable. The point is plainly, why are white guys getting the job most of the time if this is the case? Are white guys just naturally superior head coaches? I think it has more to do with the fact that the NFL is a brotherhood type of league where networking determines the coordinators in the league. The NFL isn’t that different than corporate America or academics in this respect. Socioeconomical differences make an enormous impact on the achievement gap.

  9. In general, setting a mandatory rule with no incentives built in is a recipe for failure in business. People will loophole it to death and in this case the stipulations are easily circumventable. However, the NFL needs more programs like the Bill Walsh intern minority program (Hines Ward for us) with a structure in place to actually train and give opportunities for visibility to minority coaching candidates. The former player base is a natural coaching pool anyways, if you had a structure in place where every team could carry an additional offensive and defensive coach who was a former player and whose pay was subsidized by the league, i’d be interested to see if the results would be better.
  10. Contrast this with dumbo last year basically advertising that the pick was for sale In a trade down at the combine. Or that time we told suitors we would release eric decker in a week if we don’t find a trade for him.
  11. The schedule next year travel wise is much harder. I hope we have a very strong offseason and i’m wrong though
  12. Basically all our hopes collectively here. For the last decade we’ve unequivocally Known that the various gms were idiots, especially in handling the draft and building a roster. The absence of proof positive is a little bit of a reason to be hopeful.
  13. The Jets offense was nearly dead last this season against almost the easiest schedule one can create for the Jets. The talent is really bad, but the coaching was uninspired at best. Most unforgivable is he trotted out the corpse of Kalil every week and was completely disingenuous about creating a culture of letting the best players play regardless of contract or draft status. you know, like the one our defense actually had this season.
  14. My biggest issues with Gase regarding bell was the lack of creativity trying to get him in the ball in open space. It felt like every single run was between the tackles almost all season. It’s criminal that with our lack of reliable pass catchers we didn’t feature him more as a receiver or utilize that fact that we had him and montgomery as running backs with good hands.
  15. I hope so. I’m definitely in the trade Jamal for a first and third especially in this year’s draft. Don’t think CJ has the balls to do it.
  16. I think the trade Adams talk isn’t ultimately going to go anywhere. The value we’d presumably require in a trade Isn’t likely to be met by many teams as i don’t think any teams would value Adams high enough to give up so much draft capital for a safety that doesn’t cause turnovers. He’s probably going to get extended here, best to just let it go.
  17. Long term, Accuracy doesn’t really get fixed. Plus yesterday was sh*tting the bed.
  18. Cleveland promoted an in-house candidate that was with the team for about a full season and failed to recognize that he had just about zero leadership ability. I’d say praising them for firing him after one season doesn’t exactly seem merit-worthy. I’m not impressed with Gase in the slightest either. I don’t think he’s the right guy and another year is just spinning the wheels In the scope of this franchise, but the two points are just different.
  19. I didn’t know much about him until researching him after he took the interview last year and came away very impressed. Was apparent that he is a strong leader and was fearless in headdiving into a program in turmoil. Think he was the guy last year but in Jetsy fashion we decided that the big after school special lesson was that we can’t skimp on coordinators and grab no name assistants any more after Bowles.
