  1. Adam Gase hired to be the HC of the NYJ

    Really? People said the same thing about Bowles when hired.
  2. Adam Gase hired to be the HC of the NYJ

    We hired Gase because Miami beat us a few times, convincingly. Basically.
  3. Adam Gase hired to be the HC of the NYJ

    Bang on. Perfectly stated. In fact, that may have been a selling point to the owners...the fact they may not have to shell out big bucks to improve this team. Just hire a guy who thinks he knows what he is doing. The more I think about this, the more discouraged I become.
  4. Adam Gase hired to be the HC of the NYJ

    He definitely was not. The fact the two finalists were both safe choices is troublesome to me. I would have loved to hire a guy who would have pushed Maccagnan out the door. I don't know if McCarthy is that guy but someone with enough clout to call the shots would have been nice. Instead, we got a guy who looks like a dear in headlights as a HC. Miami's secondary is quite good. Their outside DL are veterans but good, and their interior DL were young and decent this season. They were no worse without Suh imo. Fitzpatrick is going to be great and Howard is already there. Offensively, they were a mess this season but losing Landry would hurt any team. Did any offensive players develop under Gase while at Miami? Why are we convinced (not WE fans but we as an organization) that Gase will develop Darnold and not stump his progress? I'd say that's a 50/50 call right now and I wanted better odds than that.
  5. Adam Gase hired to be the HC of the NYJ

    While I tend to agree with this, and I would not have found a McCarthy hiring particularly inspiring either, Gase just seems like a guy who can be a good OC but is in way over his head as a head coach. Which sounds an awful lot like Todd Bowles to me.
  6. Adam Gase hired to be the HC of the NYJ

    I know who he is, I watched him play a lot for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and also the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. I am just completely unimpressed and disillusioned about the hiring of Gase. Yeah maybe he is a good fit and maybe he is an up-and-coming coach. BUT, it just feels like we hired a guy because we saw more of him inside the division than anybody else. It is hardly outside the box, and if any team in pro sports history needs to start thinking outside the box it's us. AND, we will probably hire a good DC and that will ensure mediocrity for the foreseeable future. Same ol' lame-*** Jets. The ONLY thing that can save us now, as well as the Bills and Dolphins, is a loss to the Chargers by NE this weekend followed by an implosion between coach and QB. Otherwise, Brady is going to be 50 years old and winning the division.
  7. Todd Bowles

    I feel exactly the same way, dude. For me, it's been 38 years of this crap.
  8. Le'Veon Bell

    It matters little whom we acquire. As long as we are led by bad personnel people and coaches, we will continue to spin our wheels ad infinitum.
  9. Game 3, 2018: @ Cleveland Browns [TNF]

    I remember that game, but wasn't it in Miami that we squandered the lead?
  10. Game 3, 2018: @ Cleveland Browns [TNF]

    Well, that is one of the issues. What is the plan for the kid? Because by trading our draft-day depth to land him, and not really addressing the MAJOR needs of this franchise (a game-breaking RB, a true No. 1 WR, O-line upgrades and above all else a legitimate EDGE rusher), we are just throwing him to the lions here and hoping for the best. At this point, it will be a miracle if Darnold does NOT bust because the set up for failure is fairly obvious to the naked eye. I get it. The Jets believe in Sam Darnold. They feel he is the real deal. Does that mean he HAS to turn into Aaron Rodgers overnight? Because that seems to be our plan here.
  11. Game 3, 2018: @ Cleveland Browns [TNF]

    I am not worried about Darnold, per se. But what are we doing? What is the plan, exactly? If all he is going to do is hand the ball off to our RB committee or throw 5-yard passes to Enunwa, ANYBODY who plays QB in the NFL can do that. We are not allowing him to grow and develop HIS passing game. We are not allowing him to improvise. We anointed him the starter, and now we are using him like we would have used McCown or Bridgewater. What is the point of that. If THIS is the QB play we want, a veteran is better suited for it. Why isn't he using the two deep threats we have in Anderson and Pryor? He went to Herndon a lot against Miami, and yeah the rookie dropped some balls, so last night we basically ignored that element of the offense? This is going to get a lot worse before it gets better. It is not enough to have a guy you THINK can be a franchise QB. You actually have to develop that and get that out of him. It does not simply happen. Right now, it looks like we gave up three second rounders for a game manager. Also, Bowles is obviously not a master motivator, nor is he a genius strategist. The ONLY thing I liked about him when he first got here was that the team seemed to play a disciplined brand of football (sans any shenanigans) that had been lacking under Rex Ryan. Well, where has that gone? Our players OVERREACT every time they make one damn play. We take stupid penalty after stupid penalty. There is zero leadership, zero accountability. This is a complete joke. We need to clean house (yes, AGAIN). New management team. New coaching staff. This perpetual and everlasting rebuild continues.
  12. Khalil Mack

    I am done with this regime. Everybody has to go. We have our franchise QB now, but without smart people running this team Darnold will never develop properly. We make panic moves when we don't have to, trade players for pennies on the dollar, meanwhile the player we absolutely need is out there and we sit on the sidelines and watch him go elsewhere. Bleep that. Let's go opponents. Let's go 0-3 and reboot this damn organization and bring in some people with a damn clue!
  13. Teddy Bridgewater

    Bridgewater is a SIGNIFICANT upgrade over McCown (and I actually like what McCown did for us last season). If it came to that, you cut McCown. It's that simple. You don't trade a STARTING NFL Qb for a 3-round draft upgrade. That's insanity.
  14. Teddy Bridgewater

    This was not a roster decision. Come on. Our roster is not so good that we could not fit another potential starting QB. That's insane.
  15. Teddy Bridgewater

    Right, and we got rid of the dead weight. And for once, I felt like we actually held an edge over just about every team in the NFL at the quarterback position. But we can't have nice things, I guess.
