I haven't  really commented on Lawson yet. When I heard about it I just chalked it up to this teams habitual bad luck. What really stinks is this would have been a guy that forced the opposing O to play Q honestly. Now we will see another season of double and triple teams.

Thanks for the lift KRL. 

It sucks, but the Jets have actually been super fortunate to avoid these types of injuries in recent years, despite how bad the team has been overall in that span. 

Still a lot of things to be excited about with this team this year, and Carl will be back next year when we really make our playoff push.

Last September, Rashed was being mocked in the 1st round by pretty much everyone out there.

He made the most of his playing time last Saturday and showed a nice initial first step.

I’m sure as hell more intrigued by him than a guy like Zuniga.

Absolutely. I was shocked to see him not get drafted. Was Glad to see JD scooped him up. He looked great last week and from what I’ve read up on him, seems like a good guy with his head on straight. Hopefully he has a nice weekend in GB.

This is really the most frustrating thing.  Really hoping at least one of three things happen: Rankins really shows up along side Q, Q gets demonstrably better, or Saleh really is a D-line wizard and Huff/JLM/younger guys take leaps.

I mean I guess from a positive standpoint if this was going to happen at least it happen early enough that he has now close to a full year to recover versus this happening say week 12 putting a question mark for the 2022 season when we really expect to make that push.  

On the flip side, I wonder more-so about the effect this will have on our secondary.  Everyone's talking about the pass rush but this defense was predicated on our pass rush so our secondary wouldn't be expected to cover as long.  While our d-line should still be good, that disruption Lawson was expected to bring does have a domino effect on our secondary.

Honnestly, I am a bit disappointed for the Jets but I agree we may find a surprisingly good pass rusher in the list of players you mentioned. Strangely I feel particularly sad for Lawson. He had such a good attitude that he was the one that deserved the least a devastating injury.

nobody and I mean NOBODY deserves that injury...its extremely painful recovery wise.

the last decade of uninterrupted failure and catastrophe has really hardened the old psychic shell. When I heard the news my first response was "that tracks" and continued on with my day. Feel for the guy as he seemed poised to have a big year and seems like a good dude.

I have moved on. Hopefully someone steps up but Lawson was not even close to the most significant addition to this team this offseason and we still have a ton of talent in our defense. Saleh has been through this before as DC

No

ulbrich had stated that his defense relies on quick pressure. 
 

he said if the QB gets to the SECOND or third read the defense is in trouble. 
 

When the games start, Nas, Guidry and Carter will have bullseyes on them

Without quick pressure will they hold up ?

it’s possible I guess.  When the DC spells it out like that however, it’s not likely

He had a big down year last season.

I don’t know. Go back and look at some of the mocks from early last season. Damn near every one of them has him going in the mid-late 1st round.

A few thoughts--

     There have been a lot of Jets "win now" posts.  Lawson's injury puts an end to that.

     Las Vegas has consistently put the Jets in the 5-6 win category.  While they would never have predicted that based on Lawson's injury,         they understood that the Jets are a fragile franchise at this point.

     This season has always been about player development, not making the playoffs.  JD and Saleh have made that clear by not bringing in       a veteran CB or QB.  No trade for Zach Ertz.

     KRL has it just right.  Lawson's injury is an opportunity for down roster players to step up.  One of them is going to get his chance,

There are a boatload of positives.  Wilson has every chance to become a top tier NFL QB.  The O Line has a lot of issues to work through, but there is more talent than we seen in years.  If they develop over the course of the season, the Jets O is light years ahead of our recent past.  The D has a swarm of young players who show a lot of ability.  It's going to take a lot of time and frustration to develop those players but we can come out with some excellent NFL players.  And we will know where our holes are.

Finally, we have a lot of draft potential.  We have a very well managed salary cap.  And the coaching staff looks great.  So every loss this year positions us for a great 2022.

Its been less than 24 hours.  Dude was an absolute beast in camp and seemed cool.  I'm still dejected and don't blame anyone who still is either.

There is no bright side at the moment.

My money is on Lawson to come through rehab ahead of schedule and eager to rejoin his teammates. I'm expecting him to be full go next season. Meanwhile, its' next man up and a chance for all our kiddos to show what they've got. This team bears no resemblance to the sad sacks of last year. Go jets!

Thank you for trying to cut through the overwhelming negativity the last 24 hours. All teams have injuries….lets move on.
Yeah but not all injuries are alike.

Meh,

Like most Jets fans I will shake it off and move on the same way we have collectively been shaking things off for decade after decade after decade.

But it happened like two minutes ago and I plan on being miserable and pissed off about it for a little while yet.

Maybe with an ACL or MCL but not an Achilles.  I don't think we see him on the field as a Jet ever again.
