It's my fault dammit! I knew when I started posting that I would lower the collective IQ of this board substantially.

A mix of uneducated buffoons, arm chair GMs and PFF reading experts is a recipe for disaster thread after thread following a bad loss

Agreed, but this has been true as long as I've been reading internet forums (a long time).  This was true on the old Jets Insider board, and many others.

Some people are fanboys or haters of player X, coach Y, GM Z, etc.  And, sure enough, they pounce every chance they get to tell others about it.  Then there's the ones who want instant gratification. Like, when are we getting a new kicker (this posted on the very same day the Jets were trying out kickers...). Those are the ones I have a harder time laughing it and moving on to another thread.

There are/were quite a few guys here seriously overrating this team.  This was NEVER going to be a playoff team, what with the drafting in the last 5-6 years.  With their view of the Jets starting to shatter, the current GM and coach are to blame!

Etc.

I'm hoping that time, maybe a calm walk through the forest with Jeremy Bates, a nice cold adult beverage, or some time with the gf/wife who some of our posters can't seem to watch football with will help.

but....probably not.

I don't know.  Maybe it has gone a bit overboard in the last few days.  Ok, no maybes involved, things have gone off the rails a bit.  But at least this year, we care when the team loses.  Past couple of seasons were about draft position and then Sam's development.  Winning was secondary. We accepted losing; some of us even preferring losses to wins as early as Spetember.  

But this year is different.  We had some hope.  Some expectations.  And we played like crap.  And lost a game we should have won.  People are pissed.  They come here to vent.  Thats not a bad thing.

Agreed.

I voted this for post of the week having only read the first two lines....never a truer word was spoken.

It’s unbearable being a fan of the Jets, not because of the team and it’s ups and (mostly) downs but because of our so-called ‘fans”

The bolded is the most accurate assessment of the type of nonsense that poisons proper discourse on any fan site....that said I was right all along about Sam throwing flat-footed off his back foot and that his mechanics were flawed

I told you so in the draft forum time and time again....he’ll never be successful with that crap....Sam Old Jets

i haven’t complained about the loss because I didn’t want to knee jerk a reaction, but I think what’s pissed me off the most is I’m sick of not having an offense. I can’t stand it. I would have been ok losing 35-28. We hired an offensive minded head coach, our early drives with Sam in preseason were super encouraging, and then we get the same 3 and out crap on opening day. And I’m so used to it I knew each drive was going to get bogged down.  I knew when Maye dropped that easy interception and they kicked a fg next play we would lose somehow.  Then Mosley went down ...uh oh....and they score in like 1:30.  It’s like my thoughts always materialize in the game. I think this proves we are living in a simulation, but that’s a whole other discussion.

I think for a lot of fans...this is our Network “IM MAD AS HELL AND IM NOT GONNA TAKE THIS ANYMORE” moment.  “WE’RE HUMAN BEINGS AND OUR PSL’s HAVE VALUE GOD DAMNIT!”

We know that the league is a corporation run by the Goodell’s, Kraft’s, Belichick’s, and Brady’s of the world, and screaming out of our windows and fire escapes won’t do anything. 

But, let us scream in peace.

I remember once I criticized the whole board in a similar capacity. I believe the phrase “calling out the whole website” came up.

Still though... I was right.

Yes; this is called a "messageboard".

1 game, small sample, all that. Thought the idea of the Gase hire was a guy who would be pedal to the metal with a solid young QB, no huddle, attack, attack, attack. And they come out with an offense that looked a lot like any from RyanEdwardsBowlesGroh; 2.5 yards between the tackles x2  and a cloud of dust, a 3 yard dumpoff on 3rd and 5  and a punt. Yes, the Bills are decent defense; you, Mr. Offensive Genius Gase are supposed to DO SOMETHING. Roll him out, screens, play action, misdirection. None of that happened. And big problem; Bell is a great back, but he's going to worn down to nothing with this workload.

And here come's the holier than thou crowd.  Why don't you all just manage all the topic threads and we'll just go along with what you suggest we talk about.  

How about this.  Let people do what they want to do.  If you don't agree or prefer to participate - don't.  Visit another thread.

But stop with all this holier than thou crap.  People are entitled to their opinion.  Even if it doesn't reach the amazingly perfect level of yours.

I love when people act like this is something new.  Threads complaining about are not particularly new or innovative either. 

No doubt, but it does feel like it's a lot more than usual. And the complaining isn't the issue as much as the conclusions people are coming to. Darnold sucks, Gase sucks, Douglas sucks..... And its not just one or two, it seems like a lot of people.

Look who down voted the OP.

Theres your list of poster boys making your point.

One loss and the self anointed GMs dont want to hear that their constant whining makes too many threads, the board, unreadable too often.  

Because we all should expect and demand 16-0 now

Eh... there’s a lot of overreaction. There’s a lot of whining but there’s also good debate to be had about certain aspects of this team and those are being debated. 

People are on edge because that loss was bad. It was really bad. What’s worse is that it felt like the last few years and that’s why people are freaking out.

You're right.  I understand the frustration though.  After finally drafting a good prospect at quarterback, it seems like Sam's getting David Carred.  No kicker, that's a joke.   I'll always be a Jet fan  but I can't put my heart and soul into this team.  I still love the game, but I enjoy watching the Saints or Chiefs more these days.  Isn't it supposed to be fun?
