When Mims?

Seriously, just badly injured is he?

 

There is no reason to rush Mims with a hamstring.  Give him 3 more weeks off and hopefully he gets 8 or so games where hes actually healthy.

We have a ton of young players on this team who absolutely need to play down the stretch, which is all the more reason to fire this idiot we have coaching.  Gase actually didnt give Perrine a single carry yesterday, which can't happen down the stretch.

With the amount of time players miss with a hammy, you've really got to start to wonder about the Jets medical/rehab people. 

This is why you have a team president. The GM addresses player personnel and sits above the coaching staff, scouting department and contract negotiation types. The Team President can then spend time addressing things like having the best medical/rehab staff, creating the team message through PR and communications departments and establishing the culture in the building. People make the mistake of thinking the players and coaching staff establish culture when in reality culture is established organization-wide.  The players are not isolated from everyone else who works for the Jets. Bad culture permeates the Jets organization and perpetuates itself through the continual bad decisions prompted by a bad culture. Someone needs to be in charge of the whole organization and then that person needs to send a clear message that if you are not part of the solution, you are the problem. Then, weed out the problems starting with Adam "Red Zone" Gase.  

Right now, who is in charge of the Jets organization? Because damned if I know. Is it CJ? Does he make daily organizational decisions? It doesn't feel like he does. Regardless, a silver spoon guy is rarely a good organizational leader. The only time this seems to work in the NFL is where the silver spoon guy's family business is football i.e. Rooney and Hunt. No, you need someone who climbed the ladder and is self-made to run your organization because that person understands that there are no shortcuts and that superman is not busting through that brick wall to save us. No, the only answer is smart hard work. Anyone who is not smart enough or not willing to put in the hard work needs to go. 

The bottom line is that we are screwed! The johnsons are incapable of successfully running a football team and seem unwilling to hire someone who is.

And that concludes my misplaced rant in response to a rookie WR thread.

I am upbeat about Joe Douglas but the fact that he only took one WR in this draft coupled with letting Anderson walk looks really awful.

I'm with you, but it looks completely different if both Perriman and Mims are healthy and having even modest success. Are the injuries JD's fault, or rather I should say, should JD have foreseen the injuries?

The mistake was not trading Adams to the Cowboys last November 

 

Jets could have both Ceedee Lamb and Mims

Perriman was an ok signing but to expect him to be a #1 WR based on 2-3 games the previous year was delusional

Agree with Robbie.  It was a mistake letting him walk... I like RA.  He a good player and always an entertaining quote.

remember when it was the draft and Mims fell not just out of the first round but also to the Jets second round pick and then JD traded down like 11 more picks and MIMS was still there? 

there must have been something bullcrap on his medicals because everyone loved this guy pre draft, he's got Terrell Owens measureables and the whole league passed on him twice

There may have been some ridiculous pre draft hearsay nonsense about his character a la Dalvin Cook a couple years ago

I mean...

The Denzel Mims scouting report via Bob McGinn: "He’s big, but I see a finesse guy who dropped too many balls in traffic .. he doesn’t play special teams. I don’t see that kind of dog in him.”

Based on what?  He has a legitimate injury

 

Do you hate everyone not named Jamal Adams?

 

Kelechi Osemele also had a legitimate injury aggravated during preseason practices 

I don't hate anyone

you on the other hand are getting very emotional about what is at root a brutal business

i don't begrudge KO for wanting a final cigarette before dawn and I don't begrudge Becton for resting an injury

both guys "if it was the Super Bowl" could gut it out and play

it's literally the same exact injury at the same position  

turns out only Robby and Adams are like the only dudes who actually played hard for this garbage franchise despite it never being the Super Bowl 

guys like Darnold can't make it through 16 games get every excuse. 

the difference is you want to hate Osemele and you want to like Becton  -We want to like Darnold etc. 

try holding Osemele and Becton to the same standards and see how that feels

Lingering injuries and longer-than-usual recovery times always seem to plague bad teams.  The root cause of this isn't that hard to figure out. Pick your poison from the pool of:

Poor training planning and oversight, de-motivated, disgruntled players, lack of faith in coach staff / direction of team. 

No one wants to kill themselves for a dog like Gase and a train wreck like the Jets.
