Popular Post jetstream23 Posted April 28, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted April 28, 2021 I’m typing this post from about 35,000 ft. Flying back to NJ to see my father who I haven’t seen in almost 2 years due to Covid. Grilling some steaks, drinking some beers, cursing the Jets draft picks, and throwing things at the TV are a strong part of a father/son bond and I’m looking forward to this. By the end of Day 2 we’ve usually come around to convincing ourselves that the Jets are hitting a home run (even if they aren’t). The old man isn’t quite up to manning the BBQ anymore so I’ll be out back firing up some ribeyes and twice baked potatoes on his grill, with a Jack Daniels by my side. We’ll tell the same stories we always tell. I’ll remind him that taking me as a kid to that Jets-Dolphins game in 1986 where O’Brien out-dueled Marino in OT was the gateway drug that made me (cursed me) a Jets fan for life. We’ll debate 3-4 vs. 4-3 (again) and talk about the completely underrated value of special teams (again) when he reminds me that a full one-third of a football game is spent with both your offense and defense on the sideline (“There’s hidden yardage in the kicking games as Parcells always said,” he reminds me.) Good times. So how will you be spending this Draft, a draft where the Jets are pretty loaded with picks compared to years past and are about to dive headfirst into a rebuild around (yet another) rookie QB? However you plan to do it, enjoy this Jets draft! Lord knows we haven’t enjoyed Jets games the past few years. Go Jets! 16 6 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
