We love Denzel Mims. He had another great week of practice. We are not taking calls about trading for Denzel Mims. Sunday: Inactive

I think it’d be easier to be the #5 behind Godwin, Evans, AB, etc than it is to exist on a depth chart behind Braxton Berrios and Jeff Smith on a team scoring 10 ppg.

The story seems to be, and this would start to make more sense, that since he is not one of the top three wide receivers for the X, Y, Z positions that means as a back up on the active roster he needs

Honestly,  i think this whole he has to know every play for every WR position i a load of 💩. Look at any teams depth chart at WR. There are different guys backing up every position. There is no one player who plays every position which seems to be what Mims is being asked to do. Crowder is out so Moore plays the slot and if Moore goes down Barrios plays there. These are the guys suited to play there, not a 6'3" burner who is best suited for posts and running drags and can out jump defenders. This whole thing is crazy and with the way the Jets have started out, even if Mims can only run 1 play, you get him out there. Nobody that has the ability  to catch a 40 yard pass should be inactive. 

Not only what you said, but Mims has been put on the field for about 10 plays so far (preseaon and week 1) and in those 10 plays has produced 2 of the 3 biggest plays the offense has had (the other being the long catch by Davis vs carolina).  Isnt it at all possible he is just a playmaker?  

Hopefully he is active today and gets a shot to make something happen

That's disappointing.  

If we’re being honest/realistic about it, it’s impossible to say without knowing what other historical challenges looked like in his life. By all accounts, the tea leaves suggest the new staff pitched their ask/role, likely in conjunction with signing Davis and drafting Moore and he checked out. The Deebo thing is one of the more frown inducing bits. ….but yea, need more history to know how much of this is just maladaptive coping skills. 

Either way, he’s put himself in a place where enabling him would be the kiss of death. He’s gotta want it. CS can only continue to offer an extended arm. …there’s more than one way to offer that hand tho.

It was very weird.  

Like he's a sociopath or something.  

 

His reaction to being drafted was how I react when my wife tells me she's running to the store or taking a walk.  

 

Maybe so.  I think he was just pissed that he was the 12th WR taken when he likely expected to be a 1st rounder.  Having his name called wasn't a surprise.  WHEN it was called was a disappointment to him.

Unfortunately, 2 years in, he hasn't apparently been using that as positive motivation.

Team with the worst offense won’t play most dangerous playmaker.  Go figure.

What are you basing this on? What makes Mims more dangerous than Elijah Moore, Braxton Berrios, Keelan Cole, and Jeff Smith? What did he do in 2020 that gave you that indication?

In my opinion,

 

The coaching's handling of Mims is nothing short of shameful. We have no one catching passes longer than a few yards (When they don't drop them) . My initial excitement with this coaching staff is wearing off very rapidly. Not because I am without patience, being a Jet fan in itself is evidence of endless patience, I just dislike personnel decisions based on personal feelings. 

All gas, but the wrong type of gas.

Perhaps we are watching two different EM. The one I am watching isn't nearly as good as Danny Woodhead having a terrible day.

The fact that we coulda got someone at 48 and JD makes the genius move to 59 and  get a player who can’t make the roster def proves to this guy “having all the accolades” of a good gm 🤦‍♂️

So you prefer the jets ruling  chase Claypool inactive instead??

I'll ask again.

On one of the only few times he was targeted, he has one of the longest catches of the season for the team. What have you seen in the others that makes you think that they can do better than 12- 15 yards? Mims strength is height, arm length, strength and speed. What exactly do you see the tiny dudes doing?

For real, have no idea how anyone can take the side of this genius coaching staff that is coaching one of the most inept offenses out there in the NFL right now over our highly drafted wr. This offense has been widely criticized and it's only been three weeks. Lafleur is in over his head.
