  1. You're right, but that is hindsight. It's obvious now, but at the time we couldn't afford to pay everyone and Wilkerson was a good citizen. If only we knew then, what we know now...
  2. Head Coaching Candidates

    The only thing I know of that they have in common is their job titles. If that's case, I would have the same concern. That said, I have to think he is at least somewhat (if not a lot) responsible for the improvement in our offense this season.
  3. Head Coaching Candidates

    Why not Morton? At least, give him an interview.
  4. Now, we have them just where we want them!
  5. The NY Jets have lost my support this season

    I want McCown back, BUT... only as a mentor and backup for our next QB. The Jets MUST invest money for a FA QB or invest draft picks to move up for a potential franchise QB. I don't care how they do it as long as the resolve the missing QB situation. McCown would be an excellent mentor. If they don't do that then I don't want McCown back.
  6. I voted yes. Harbaugh, I could take or leave and I am no fan of Colin Kaepernick. However, Scot McCloughan is a savant. He can be my GM any day and I think having him here would trump all the negatives.
  7. With him, it seems like he is REALLY on or REALLY off. You never know which one will show up.
  8. And so begins the pre-draft misdirection. This FO has always played their cards close to their vest. They have their eye on someone, but I am fairly certain it is not Josh Allen.
  9. Jets D Dancing in 3rd Quarter

    I LOVE this season! I thought Maccagnan was out of his mind letting all the veterans go in the off season. What have any of them done this year, if they were even in the NFL? I wanted to see the young QB's play this season. I was wrong... Keep playing McCown and the hell with the young QB's. Maybe Maccagnan DOES know what he is doing after all (Hackenberg pick aside). Maybe Bowles is growing into the job. We seem to be building a culture with the young players that will serve us well in future seasons. We can worry about a long term QB in the off season (and we better). My low expectations have helped make this one of the more enjoyable and fun seasons in recent years. I have never been this happy with a 4-5 team, and it's nice to see things trending in the right direction.
  10. Ammo needed to move to #1 from #10

    1) No. It will take all that and at least a future #1 (and probably more). Good QB's and demand will drive the price up. 2) In a heartbeat... whatever the cost, we must. 3) Too early to speculate.
  11. Powell has an afterburner. He is surprisingly fast and outran everyone on the field.
  12. McCown on 3rd Down

    I am falling for nothing. Much to my surprise, McCown is a seemingly good choice to carry the torch this year. However, I don't want him on the team next year unless it's as a backup on the cheap (lesson learned from Fitz). He would make a good mentor for our new franchise QB (too much optimism, perhaps?). The key to me, is how the coaching staff manages him through the rest of the season. At some point he will need to yield playing time to one or both of the younger QB's.
  13. McCown on 3rd Down

    I wanted to dislike McCown but he's not letting me.
  14. Realistic 2018 starting QB

    The Jets have hitched their wagon to the hope of landing a high draft pick in 2018. Therefore, they MUST draft a top QB. There is no other option and no excuse not to. If they believe they are not high enough to do so then they MUST trade up, at whatever the cost, as the Eagles did to land Wentz. A high cost will be mitigated by the team having a franchise QB for years to come. If they don't do this then this season will have been all for naught. Of course my opinion is based on the basic assumption that they make the right choice. Hmmm...
