  1. Amazing how many years now that the Jets haven't been winning many games.
  2. Historically, the Jets haven't leaked ANYTHING since Joe Douglas became GM. Many folks are assuming the rumor that Douglas wants Wilson and the coaching staff wants Darnold to be true. If it is, it will be the first true rumor of Douglas's tenure. I think it's far more likely that Douglas and coaching staff have reached a consensus (whatever that might be). If the coaches really are saying they prefer Darnold, it may be just posturing. Or not. Either way, it will be interesting to see how this unfolds.
  3. Panthers owner David Tepper is known to be ulta-aggresive and was said to be desperate to land Watson. That seems unlikely now, which I think only will increase his desperation to land a franchise QB, or at least a QB with the potential to become one. I would be surprised if GM Scott Fitterer did not make a ridiculous offer to the Jets.
  4. If he doesn't have confidence in his own abilities, then he has no business being a general manager.
  5. I agree, with one noteworthy exception. I keep hearing that an edge rusher is the motor that drives Saleh's defense. If his defense is to properly function, an edge rusher is critical.
  6. We had too many needs to fill them all through free agency. They were always going to have to fill some needs in the draft- the only question was in which positions. That said, I'd feel better if we came out of free agency with at least one above average offensive lineman.
  7. Can't wait for? They've been going on for a while now.
  8. 100% agree. Many posters are rushing to judgement. Let's wait and see how things unfold before we start condemning folks.
  9. You are correct. Nonetheless, he is coming back from a year off, a year after having a groin injury. In my mind, that does not qualify as a comeback. JMO...
  10. I would never second guess Belichick. He must know something that we don't.
  11. You make some very good points, but I disagree on a few counts... You say you don't want to lose Sam's trade value and would prefer to use that value to put another piece around him. I say that is commendable, but the cost we would pay I consider to be "insurance" to ensure we have a usable QB. Even without trading Sam, we still have plenty of draft picks and cap space to acquire free agents. While an additional 2nd rounder should yield another starter, I think the "insurance" is worth the cost. Although Sam could lose value in a year, as you point out, I don't think all would be lost. He
  12. Here's a novel thought.... why not hedge our bet? Draft Wilson and keep Sam. Play Sam this year and sit Wilson behind him to learn for a year... unless Wilson is lights out in camp, then of course you go with him. If that does happen, Sam could be traded to a team early to replace an injured QB, or at worst, we trade away the one we don't want next year. Maybe this would light a fire under Sam's ass. Regardless, I will trust JD to make the right decision.
