  1. YES! I thought he was early 4 but he was indeed. Still, our drafting history has been abysmal this past decade.
  2. We drafted Chuma in the third round this year. Before that, Dakota Dozier in the 4th round in 2014 Before that Vlad Ducasse in the 2nd round in 2010. We have picked three players in the top four rounds on OL in a decade. And we wonder why our line SUCKS.
  3. Crazy idea: What if we found guys who can throw the ball, catch the ball, protect the guy throwing the ball for a change in the 1st round?
  4. DAMMIT! How the hell could I forget that fateful day. I have been trying to block it from memory.
  5. Still haven't let that Douglas thing go I see.... Consistent if not anything else!
  6. I have to disagree about Vilma to Marvin Jones because its his fault we're in this damn Patriot mess going on, what, 100 years now?
  7. You asked my man! In all seriousness, I would give him two more years. Douglas has a CRAP ton of work to do. Do we really think Douglas can get five new starters on the OLine plus depth, two more WR's, a TE, and another RB all in one season?
  8. Welp, this thread is going nowhere. Again, wouldn't it be nice if people could actually have discussions not rooted in emotion over one game? Too much to ask I guess.

I will look forward seeing you back on the Darnold bandwagon soon.
  10. When he came out of college, he was one of the most touted QB prospects in years. Sorry, you don't like Ferrari? How about a Beamer than. Is that better? The point is, he was HIGHLY sought after, and we got him. But what did we do? Draft defense the next two years, ignoring the OL, RB, and WR market for a total of 5-7 years. So there is that. His footwork is a little sloppy. IT was well stated. But that is what proper COACHING is to fix. The kid might as well be out there running the Offense himself. Great players didn't get there on there own. It was silly to call him Andrew Luck. Luck was a generational player. Darnold never was. But Darnold would/could still be a top 10 QB in this league if there was actually some help coming his way.
  11. OH, I remember the thread, at least I think it was this one. I got RAKED over the coals for agreeing and suggesting that if a team calls about Sam, you listen. It then turned into me being the dumbest poster and why would I give away a franchise QB for nothing. I will reiterate what I actually said, in case you missed it. 1) IF we had the number one pick and we could take Tua 2) Teams call about #1 pick and Sam, we get a ridiculous offer for Sam 3) It resets the QB rookie contract to year 1, with multiple picks to protect Tua and build around him I am not convinced Sam is a bust. He is off to a rough start, but thanks to the incompetence YET AGAIN of ownership and Mac, his climb went from a small hill the way he looked initially to that of a mountain expedition.
  12. Okay dude, I am trying to have a reasonable conversation, but this is just getting dumb now. I get you're pissed off, but there wasn't a franchise in the NFL that didn't want this kid. He is 22 years old and has played 18 games. If you want to have a reasonable conversation with the other posters, have one, but seriously.....
  13. If the Jets completely tank this season, I would not be surprised if Joe Douglas first trades Sam (I think there are teams that would give multiple picks for him), and drafts his own guy next year, then builds the team around him. I am NOT saying it should be done, but I would not be surprised if he did it.
  14. I still think this is a bit of an overreaction. I am not saying you are wrong, but given what this kid has been given, and IF he busts, it will be SOLELY on the Jets. You buy a Ferrari and then fill it with leaded gas and drive it on dirt roads, you deserve a wreck at the end.
  15. Well THAT is the dumbest thing I have read on the internet today, and that is saying something!
  16. Follow the logic of a simplistic statement like "It's that simple." Your kid fails a test at school. Does that mean he/she is an idiot? Darnold and Rosen were the supposed best two QB's coming out of the 5 in 2018. As of now, Jackson is the best, Allen is 2nd, Baker is 3rd, Sam is 4, and Rosen is 5. Who plays on the worst two teams in the NFL, with no offensive weapons, O-Line, or coaching? The bottom two. Sam could very well be a bust; if he is, it will be the Jets fault for not surrounding him with talent on the offense. He has all the tools, but even Jesus can't do carpentry work in 2019 with tools from 2000 AD.
  17. In no way shape or form do I think Adam Gase is Bill Belichick. He isn't. However, Belichick is regarded as one of the greatest coaches all time. But here is the problem: He had five seasons as head coach of the Browns and went 36-44. His first year as head coach of New England he went 5-11. His second year in New England, he started 0-3. He puts in Tom Brady out of necessity, and goes 233-76 from that point on and wins 6 Super Bowls. So, was he still a misunderstood genius when he was 41-58 up until Tom Brady, or did Tom Brady make him look like a genius? Sometimes, the coach is only as good as the players, and sometimes the players are only as good as the coaching they get. Who knows what the exact mix of said statement is.
  18. In all seriousness: I wonder if the team looks at strength and conditioning this year. Of course, I REALLY hope JD takes injury history at the college level into consideration when he drafts players.
  19. Cashman is the perfect example of a guy who can contribute in a depth role at a low cost. He plays too much, he will probably get hurt.
  20. Trumaine has been a train wreck. A long list of empirical evidence proving you build through the draft and fill in small pieces with FA, not buy your way through FA by paying "A" list sticker prices for "C" level talent. Darnold: Yeah, he's pressing, but this is how good young QB's become mediocre talent. When you get a Ferrari, but you continue to fill it with cheap gas and drive it on gravel roads....He has a terrible line that cannot protect him or open up holes for the RB. He has nobody to throw the ball to. Of course he is going to press things to try and win. He probably feels like he has to do it all on his own. If they don't get him some help, you might has well trade him because he will be ruined. JD better be drafting offense for the next little while.
  21. Absolutely.....but trading a good young safety on a rookie contract for a beat up 31 year old LT is not how to do it.
