  1. Jets fire Mike Maccagnan.

    It is probably a good thing the reports revolve around Bell. We already know Bell is going to be a high-maintenance player. I think everybody in the room knows this, so they probably already anticipate a few issues here and there. It would have been worse if the rift centered around Quinnen Williams or Darnold or pretty much anyone else. I think Bell can handle knowing his coach did not really want him. He is used to that, me thinks. His former team did not want him anymore, either.
  2. Jets fire Mike Maccagnan.

    I suppose he had to go, and he was not exactly worth keeping, but as mentioned by someone else previously Gase is now the man in charge and he really has not done jack (with this or any other franchise). It is a very dangerous game we are playing here with a true unknown, although it is not like we have a legacy to protect or anything. If he is a failure, he just has to get in line then for the worst of all time hall of fame, Jets edition. I do like the idea of bringing in someone like Douglas from a winning organization. And I also like the idea of bringing in Jeremiah. Thinking inside the box has never worked for us, maybe thinking outside the box (though not THAT far outside) will. Like Bobby said, what the hell was Gase expecting this off-season...frugality? We had money, at least we spent it on talented football players. Sounds like a novel idea around these parts. Anyway, I really hope expectations come down for this team for 2019 and beyond. We still don't know if Darnold is a franchise QB. We need to completely rebuild the drafting and developing departments and we also need to see if the new players mesh well with the new coaches/system. I am going into training camp this year expecting the worst. Maybe they will surprise me.
  3. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    From this list of CB's, I think only one is left: Amani Oruwariye. All the others are gone. Is there anybody left in free agency who might help us at corner? Could we see a vet getting released post-draft who may help us? Same question for offensive line?
  4. Jets select EDGE Jachai Polite in round 3, 68th overall

    I like the pick. We cannot get perfection when trying to plug a gaping hole in Round 3.
  5. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    I liked the first pick tonight. I don't mind the second, but I am perplexed as to why we gave away a last rounder to move up one spot. Oh well, still a decent draft so far. Our biggest issue is probably internal dysfunction right now.

    Glad I missed that, then.
  7. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    That would make sense...if we officially moved to a 4-3 base. As far as I know, we have not. Why would we keep the 3-4 with a defensive coordinator known for his 4-3 anyway? It makes no sense to me. Also, what happens to McLendon if we sign Ansah? Have they talked at all about releasing McLendon? I suppose they might ponder now that Williams 2.0 is with us. It seems to me we complicate things unecessarily sometimes. Oh, and I have another question: who is our projected left corner right now: Brian Poole??? I think we need a LCB fairly early today. Is it not a bigger need than O-line at this point?
  8. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    While I like the idea of getting an exec from a winning program, what the hell is with this timing??? They just realized Maccagnan's indecision? I swear this franchise...

    Not the color, though.
  10. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    I like the idea of trading with the Raiders, from 3 to 4, because we may still get the guy we want. Who knows what the Raiders are going for.
  11. #JetsNewUnis

    Not a huge fan of the new unis, they look like the Eagles more than the Jets (first impression). But, hopefully these unis will be the lucky unis. Which is why I was hoping for a retro, Joe Namath-era uniform.
  12. Whatever we do, we should not trade any future picks this weekend. Please don't. We THINK we have a better team but we have been fooled so many times before. The worst thing that could happen is we are right back in the top 5 of next year's draft and we don't have the pick. If Quinnen Williams is the consensus best player in the draft, who are we to pass on him? It would mean Henry Anderson may not play as much as is projected, or maybe a lot less playing time for my Canadian brother Nathan Shepherd. But, Gregg Williams should be able to make it work. Meanwhile, our front line would be scary good. I was on the fence at first with the idea of not drafting an edge rusher, but now I am fine with it. We can maybe trade Lee for a pass rusher? Even if the player is a lot older, I would like to see a move like that.
  13. Adam Gase hired to be the HC of the NYJ

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

    We hired Gase because Miami beat us a few times, convincingly. Basically.
  15. 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.
