Is it even POSSIBLE that the starters on offense are worse than last year?

Never understood why they chose Chris Hogan over DT who actually played Ok last year before he got hurt.

We did our best healthy defender and let another team sign without a doubt our best offensive weapon. It also seems Sam is off to a slow start or he's not the answer. Line seems improved and Becton seems like he may be legit. That #44 guy on defense was a pleasant surprise.

Two GMs, two HCs.... year 3 of a Bottom 5 roster. Heck, they even gave Ryan Fitzpatrick guys like Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

 

As the next few games play out, hopefully the OL will prove to be improved, if not yet "good." Yeah, the WR situation is pretty crappy.  I'd like to see Darnold stop lobbing soft throws into a crowd in the middle of the field and learn how to throw the ball away while scrambling. There are still some things that he can control that he needs to get better at doing.

Very good points.  Though, tbf, Joe D did draft Denzel Mims and we did have Le'veon at RB.  That's still deficient, of course.  But I think most people agreed that getting the OL repaired was job #1.  We didn't want Sam to go the way of Andrew Luck.

I would have liked to see them be creative by bringing in an actual QB coach, but that wasn’t gonna happen. 

I wanted them to bring in an actual coach here, too.  (Sigh)

Dude WTF. This is on Douglas too. Something is up. Between showing up to the first game completely not ready to play and the entire draft class injured...WTF is going on? This is embarrassing on a new level of Jets embarrassing. They haven’t even practiced this week and he’s hurt? How?

No. The OLine is night and day better.

You would think a smart playcaller would try to play to his team’s strengths and run the ball

Outside of giving Amari Cooper $20 mil plus, there weren’t too many avenues to getting the WR1 here this year. I would have liked to see them be creative by bringing in an actual QB coach, but that wasn’t gonna happen. Maccagnan put the roster in such a hole at the skills positions that it would’ve taken a miracle to fix it in one offseason, which is too bad for Sam because this is The Year he has to show out. Giving Maccagnan the run of the house last offseason was a death knell

We would have beaten the Bills had Joe Douglas drafted another receiver in the sixth round.

Never once as a Jet fan have I thought “it can’t get any worse.”

I still believe Mims will be a beast when he's healthy + I could see us going for Juju to pair with Sam + using 1 of our firsts on a stud WR. The entire core could be finished in 1 year with all young guys.

It’s like one year too late, though

I think the line is improved. Becton is clearly better than Beachum already and I suspect as the season goes on it will be clear the o-line has improved (almost) across the board.

Skill players, at least for now, look worse for sure. Perriman over Robby was a mistake, as is Hogan over Demarius Thomas. The latter makes zero sense. Crowder is Crowder. I think it's clear that we were counting on Mims to play and we just got hit hard with the hamstring injury.

Herdnon was a letdown last week but I'm still bullish on him this season.

Bell isn't the right player for this offense. I have little doubt Perine will be the best RB on the team by the end of the season.

The big "X-Factor" is that we were hoping even with limited weapons Darnold would be way better. No mono, full offseason, etc. Clearly one week in that's not the case. I'm not jumping to conclusions but we need to see a big jump Weeks 3-4, IMO. No reason the Jets shouldn't score in those games.

Arguably the best WR in the NFL was traded for a 2nd round pick. Jets should have been all over that. 

They should have resigned Anderson. Maybe resign Anderson and sign Perriman if you like him so much.

Going from Anderson-Thomas-Crowder to Perriman-Hogan-Crowder is pretty disgraceful no matter what way you spin it. We downgraded.

Next year I want Ja’Marr Chase, Godwin or JuJu, and Mims as our 3 receivers. Douglas just needs to load up the position with talent

The funny thing about the O line is that it is much better than last year but still probably bottom 6 or 7 in the NFL (if not lower). . . .   that is how bad the O line was last year.

O’Brien didn’t make Hopkins available at all. He dumped him on the Cardinals for David Johnson. It’s not like Douglas opted out of bidding on him.

There was no market for Anderson, Douglas offered him a competitive deal, especially for someone with no market, then Anderson’s college coach threw him what is effectively a one year deal.

some fans seem to think that free agency is a one way street.  the jets can't always get the players they target.  they need the potential free agent to agree too.
