  1. Here’s my question to Joe Douglas supporters. But before I ask let me say I love a lot of the moves he’s made. Loved the Saleh hire. Loved Wilson, Moore, Carter in last years draft. This current draft on paper looks like a grand slam. With all that said the team is 6-27 under his watch. What are expectations in year 3 of JD? Will a 5-6 win season, albeit a better record than last year, cut it? It’s really a weird situation in my eyes because it feels like he’s building something potentially special but the results on the field have stunk early on.

    Serious question: what's the discussion around Tua like on the Miami boards? Are most fans ready to move on, or do some think he needs more time to develop or a better supporting cast to reach his potential?

    It’s love or hate and no in between. Almost 50/50. Tua haters Constantly bitch about 2 yard passes, being a frail injury prone QB and anytime he does something well it was the result of the other team being bad.  Then there’s the pro Tua crowd that has an excuse for everything he does wrong. It’s really maddening. Lol I was very excited about Tua when we first got him but I’ve since tempered my expectations. I do still feel comfortable moving forward with him as our franchise QB. I think he has elite accuracy and thats enough with a decent supporting cast.

    Just wondering would you take Zach over Tua? If you could make that trade. 

    Tough question. Gun to my head I think I would just for the potential to have a top 10 QB that can play an exciting brand of football. I want to make clear im not knocking Tua by saying this. I think Tua’s a VERY good accurate passer that can make noise with the right pieces around him and im happy to have him, but his style of football is death by 1000 paper cuts.

    True Sam Darnold is proof of this. As for Tua he managed an ok game for you yesterday but had a great running game against a weak defense who gave up double the ground yardage you average per week. But still he almost blew the game against a better team it would have been an L. 

    It was one of Tua’s worst games imo. Only thing I was happy to see was him bounce back from the pick 6 and get the win. He was clearly carried by the run game and 2nd half defense.

    It’s like we watch different games, did you guys not see the deep throw to Harry? Very Tua ish, Mac literally put his entire essence into the throw and it was still under thown.
     

    Herbert had a similar play and the pass was on a rope, that’s what dudes mean when they say he can’t throw deep. 

     

    Tossing around a misleading stat like YPA is a good try tho 😂🤣

    Trust me I’ve been down the advanced stat hole to try and prove Tua can throw deep lol he clearly has an average arm. I’ve accepted it. I now just focus on what he does best, short accurate throws lol anyone with eyes can see guys like Mahomes, Herbert and Allen are a different level of arm talent then a guy like Jones.

    You pick one stat -- while ignoring he's 12th in 20+ yard passes -- and call me cherry picking.

    You, sir, are very bad at this.

    Simply pointing out the obvious, they don’t throw downfield. All this with the most pocket time in the whole league. Advanced stats also say Tua is Elite at completing deep balls and we both know he’s far from a deep ball passer in his young career.

    What a dopey double down.   You do know there's a difference between being elite like Herbert and being the worst starting QB in the league.  

    Again, Tua was far from the worst QB in the league last year yet in the media and within the fan base he needed to be replaced ASAP. Young QBs are on the shortest leash they’ve ever been on in today’s nfl.

    Cherry picked. Do you know what that means? I used the most important stats to refute the statement that Jones is a "dink and dunker" and I used the entire year -- every game. Didn't carve any out, excuse any away, remove the Bills game when he threw 3 times. None of that. 

    There is no need for me to address your strawman that this someone means I am equating the QBs in ability.

     

    Mac jones 23rd in passes attempted at 30+ Air yards. Mac Jones also has the highest pocket time at 2.4 with an elite offense line, yet they still don’t throw downfield. Only one with a straw man argument  is you searching advanced stats trying to piece together data that makes him appear on par with the games greats. Truly bizzare.

    Jones has a:

    • higher YPA than Brady
    • higher Intended Air Yards Per Attempt than Mahomes
    • higher Completed Air Yards Per Completion than Aaron Rodgers
    • higher QBR than Russell Wilson

    All while supported with less YAC per completion than any of them.

    We get it man. You’re using cherry picked advanced stats to make your argument. I do this with Tua constantly lol you’re  kidding yourself If you think Mac Jones has similar ability to Rodgers, Brady, And Patty Mahomes as far as deep passing is concerned.

    It’s good to hear anything positive. And the Fins fan could be right. So far we’ve seen spurts of good play but inconsistency in the offense. One good half and then zero. Zach hasn’t been making plays and boosting his teammates who are overall below average. As far as escapability he was sacked 5 times yesterday. 

    I mean he can’t be Houdini every play lol. There should’ve been 8sacks yesterday maybe more. But you can see the kid flash.

    We don't expect them to be elite right off the bat.  What an aburdly dumb comment after an attempt at a reasonable post.  

    The comment rings true. It appears nearly every fan base wants to replace their young rookie QB if they don’t have record setting years like Herbert. I’m living through it in Miami right now.

    Define terms. No NFL QB is asked to do anything more than he's doing right now,and doing it very  well. Is there some Big Time Passer metric? Need to throw 70 yards into a garbage can? 

     Jones throws deep and with accuracy. He has been throwing 40 yard ropes at Alabama and he's doing it now. This was ANOTHER catastrophic Jets draft F___k up. 

    Ok fair enough. Can I ask your view on Tua? He’s currently 2nd in deep ball accuracy. Over the last 6 weeks he also had the most 50+ yard pass plays. Do you consider tua a deep ball passer? 

  13. 6 minutes ago, Bugg said:

    Without any doubt, yes. Your take is ill-informed. Jones throws deep, and with accuracy. He is not some noodle-armed post-surgery Pennington. By eyeballs and stats; see JGB above, silly goose. 

    Ok so you view Mac jones as a big time downfield passer? We’ll have to agree to disagree.

    Contrary to the dink and dunk narrative, Jones has a:

    • higher YPA than Brady
    • higher Intended Air Yards Per Attempt than Mahomes
    • higher Completed Air Yards Per Completion than Aaron Rodgers
    • higher QBR than Russell Wilson

    All while being supported by less YAC Per Completion than all of them -- which may have something to do with Mac Jones' top 2 receivers being UDFAs (no weaponinz!!).

    This post sounds like me when I’m defending Tua for his dink and dunk. Tua has 7.1 ypa and Josh Allen has 7.1, yet we cleary know they’re not the same…

    Mac Jones dink and dunk; When people write this kind of nonsense, are you watching some other Mac Jones? Guy consistently throws deep, 30-40 yards, with accuracy, every game. And he did so at Alabama too. 

    So did Tua lol It’s different in the NFL. Surely you’re not saying Macs arm talent is equal to Zachs are you? 

  16. Dolphins fan here lol I had to comment because someone brought up Mac Jones compared to Wilson. I’m sooooo sick of the media drooling over Jones. Mac Jones imo is nothing special. Just your average run of the mill QB that’s in a friendly dink and dunk Patriots scheme with a good line. Wilson on the hand has a rocket launcher arm and elite escapability. He clearly just isn’t ready yet. Redraft right now still give me Zack Wilson. The big problem with all this though is everybody needs an Elite player NOW. No time to waste. These guys have no time to develop.
