Is JD Living in the Present?

Recommended Posts

Maybe. The NFL now is based on two simple factors: an-time offense and a great pass rush.

The only way you're defeating the AFC's best is with a 33ppg offense and an exemplary pass rush.

So I am unhappy JD drafting Davis 3rd, Morgan 4th.

Instead load up on offense and pass rushers on defense.

Those seem to be the 2 picks that everyone has the most issue with, I can see why. Are you also unhappy about the rest of the draft?

What if all the pass rushers and WRs in the third round at that point end up being terrible? Did you possibly consider that could happen?

In real-time wasn't a fan of Davis or Morgan picks either.

I loved!!! everything else from the get-go.

---

after Beckton & then the Mims rollercoaster ride, I was ready to jump up and down yelling like a madman if we'd picked any WR or OL with that 3rd pick.  I was ready to be cool with any CB or OLB ... when I saw S my heart pulled a crash & burn.  ...  I can get onboard after hearing everything about him & positioning us for the future at the position etc ... but it was a punch to the gut when it happened.

Morgan is also a "best thing moving forward" pick rather than a "best thing now" ... I understand both ... and loved everything else so much, I'm cool  ... but if either of these guys had been a second WR this would have been my "oh $h*t my alarm clock's about to ring" dream draft

The NFL is a tricky thing.....

in the regular season having a good offense takes you a long way...but..and it’s a big but..in the playoffs team are all of sudden allowed to play defense (hence our two AFC championship games)

They let the games go..

So a good GM should absolutely be focused on offense (that’s what gets you in the tournament) but you damn better have a good enough defense if you want to win that tournament (the Super Bowl(

Youre right, there's no room for defense and depth in todays NFL. 🙄

No I’m not. I’m cautiously happy with the Becton and Mims picks. And Zuniga. 

The bottom line is the Jets offense and pass rush aren’t scaring anyone. The NFL requires both of those units to be feared. I want JD to create it. He’s taken some steps but I have my concerns.

I'm liking the Davis (S) pick a lot more now than I did originally. With him and Maye, two guys with a nose for the ball, floating around high and Jamal playing closer to the line with Zuniga rushing along side of Mosely and Williamson, I can see this D being fierce. Especially if big Q takes a step forward along with Phiilips and Shepherd. This is essentially a young D with a high level of athleticism. That's not a bad thing. And Davis adds to that without question. 

Morgan? I'm with ya man. While I get the idea, I still don't like it and I don't really like the player all that much.  So many of "my" guys were sitting there staring us in the face. Gandy Golden, Gabriel Davis, Biadasz, Driscoll... Heck, even Charlie Heck was taken one pick later. :) 

but I can't let it taint a draft where we nabbed Becton, Mims, Zuniga, Hall and Perine. And grabbed Lamar Jackson as an UDFA.  Such a solid group. Morgan or no Morgan! 

The initial “not another safety!” feeling seems to be going away, when you do a deeper dive the pick makes sense in a few different ways. I don’t mind the jets picking up a Morgan or Fromm, I would’ve just liked it a bunch more if it happened in round 5/6.

Davis looks phenomenal and Jabari has some absolutely fierce footage to look at.    I'm pretty confident JD has a good idea of what he's doing.

Lol, even though the Pats vs Eagles Super Bowl was high scoring, it was a DEFENDER that knocked the ball out of Brady’s hand to win the game. 
your right, DEFENSE STILL MATTERS!

If Davis is what the scouting report says he can be then he basically can help wreck a game like a pass rusher.  Also the Florida kid also has some serious athleticism and same if he is closer to the ceiling then floor we have our pass rusher.

You are right it’s not time to celebrate rookies and count on them to fill these roles and fill them as good to great players, it’s to hard to know, or predict.

But also maybe they do come out the gates making plays, being difference makers?

Point is now isn’t the time to get on the soap box, and declare certainties, or outrage over the roster that’s not even finished yet, and has some serious young talent.

Well that is one way of seeing it but maybe center field players like Davis can help hold O's like KC and Baltimore where the point total can be maybe under that. The big thing going forward should be "how do I hold an O to 24-25 points so we don't have to score over 30 points to win the game?". Expecting to build O's that consistently average over 30 points scoring a game is extremely difficult as you see only a few teams a year that can do that, which requires an all world QB along with 4-5 all world skill position players at WR, TE, RB, etc. Never easy to build that.

List us the guys you would have drafted that could put us this year in Superbowl contention. You can't cause it's impossible. And anyone you list, track them cause half will be busts.

He’s a trail blazer. Not a follower. When they zig, we zag. Great teams create their own formula for winning. It’s a copy cat league, but the copy cats don’t succeed long term because they don’t understand what it took to devise, create and build what they are copying. You want to be the team being copied. That’s what JD is doing. He is fulfilling his vision (not someone else’s) of what makes a great football team.

Very well said! 
As we all know “Rome wasn’t built in a day” and our Championship run will not be built in one draft. I concur, JD is the guy at the helm creating his vision. Am I afraid the Johnson brothers may hinder that vision? Yes.. who isn’t? 
But all in all I trust that JD is the right man for the job, and will continue to put this Franchise in the right positions to be successful. 
We can sit and argue about what we should’ve could’ve would’ve done during the draft but what’s done is done, we have who we have and I am always a firm believer of the “Jimmy’s and Joes” over the “X’s and O’s” we put the right players on the field and in this “Copy cat league” the exciting 40 points a game rah rah speed kills offenses will soon be figured out. Lucky for us we have one of the best Defensive minds in the game. 

I know hopes are high but I feel confident in what JD and hell gotta give Gase credit as well, I feel confident in both of them moving forward... 

 

With all that said, I’ll go on JD’s “1 year prove it deals” with Gase! Lol

The safety pick allows our D coordinator another swiss army knife player so that Jamal Adams can be all over the field. The Jets are eventually going to pay JA and when they do they need to keep putting him in position to be a Pro Bowl player. Davis also will be IMO used as a kick returner and hopefully give the Jets a Brad Smith type on special teams. Picking the QB was a gamble but if Sam gets hurt it's always good to have someone to keep the ship afloat until he gets back. Whether Morgan can do that is yet to be seen but theoretically it was the right move, again IMO.

Hey, I get that offense is king.  I get Macc ignored it for so long we needed to have an offseason where most of the emphasis needed to be on the offense.  I felt that way too going into the offseason

But if youre sitting at your draft spot and there's a player that you love, that you feel dropped and is a position of need, that your DC will appreciate and utilize to the teams advantage, you jump on it.

Experts and fans in general seem to rave about the Jets draft, so why are we then projected to land at the bottom 8 this season? I know we have a tougher schedule with long road trips, but there is no Brady in our division, Patriots, for the first time appear beatable. Tua might not be ready to play for the Fins, Buffalo has a strong team but erratic at the Qb spot. True,we have a lot of new pieces that need to be molded together but still- why such a low ranking? The Gase factor??

I'm envisioning a 4-2-5 defense with Jamal playing a weak side linebacker/safety hybrid.  Then when the offense goes wide they can insert Pool for the 4-1-6.

All three safeties can cover and tackle so the flexibility to disguise and blitz Adams might be very exciting. 

Basically Jamal's flexibility to play the box will allow the Jets to be fast.  

 

I will say that I wouldn't have drafted the safety or the quarterback, but hopefully they know more than me.
