  1. First Mock Off-Season

    If we were to get Conklin and Scherff in FA, taking Lamb at 11 is a lot easier to swallow. Add Hansen in the second rd and I would be ecstatic. As long as we upgrade LT, C, and at least one OG, I would love it. That is what this team needs more than anything.
  2. free agents we should think about

    Great idea. Now we will have good WR but a QB with no time to throw to them. Just who will we get in FA that will replace the 4 needed OL?

    The way I see the games, winners are getting pressure from a variety of players, ie they have a strong front 7. I also see good to great DB’s. I will not argue that we need an edge, but CB is a very strong need. After OL of course.
  4. The Development of Sam Darnold

    One thing to consider; when Sam is in the pocket, I am sure he is waiting to get crushed because the OL has not shown that they can keep him clean. He feels better on the move because then he is relying on himself, not 5 scrubs. It is know as the David Carr syndrome and I can only hope he is not damaged beyond repair. Hold off on your evaluations until we get a semi-decent OL. Until then, complaining or criticizing a 22 yr old QB that has to fear for his life is unwarranted.
  5. I believe Walker Little is returning to school.
  6. The Random Thread (TAJT!)

    An I third this. My daughter is a psychiatrist and she would be the first to say see a therapist. If that person is not working for you, find another. If the feelings get real bad it may be time for a psychiatrist for medication, but that is a last resort. Like Chad says, find the good in the little things. Maybe small daily goals. Perhaps a new hobby. Something you may have always wanted to try but never did ( I just started playing bass guitar and I am loving it). Good Luck my friend and do not be afraid to respond back. We have good people on this forum that transcends our disagreements over the Jets.

    I know we are both on the same page. Costanzo and Humphries are the only two LT that would be an upgrade to Beachum and both will most likely resign or be tagged. I just do not want to keep kicking this can down the road and tie up all that salary cap in older OL that will probably not live up to their contracts. I also think Vaitai is not an upgrade to Shell or Edoga. Scherf or Thuney - absolutely. Not sure about FA Centers - McGovern maybe? This is a good class for OT but I feel more will be selected in round 1 than all these mock drafts are predicting. Teams are realizing a strong OL is paramount to winning. I do not want to be left with Beachum as our starter because we missed on a player. I think any second round OT will not be starting material. That said, I also believe JD will be able to identify OL better than our previous regime. It is also a decent class for WR and I think a couple will fall to us in rd. 2. Ruggs, Jefferson, Higgins may all be there. Couple that withe maybe Perriman, Cobb, Demarcus Robinson, etc. and I think our WR corp will be good, not great, but good.

    Harrison was drafted by Indianapolis. Only Shell, Edoga, and Winters are homegrown. Off the top of my head, OL we acquired other than the draft: Compton, Beachum, Osmele, Carpenter, Long, Lewis, I could go on but I think you get my point. Only Mangold and Ferguson were 1st rd picks. When did our OL take a ****? After they left and we went the “Let’s build our OL through FA and day 3 picks. IT DOES NOT WORK! Based purely on BPA, yes, Jeudy and Lamb are higher rated than almost all OL this year. We need to spend that 1st on OL and stop dicking around with old guys and never-will-be’s.
  9. 2020 Draft Prospects

    Sure, lets keep building the OL like we have been.....with FA. That has worked so well for us. Enough already, draft the best OL at 11. Period. FA WR are a lot more successful, usually. OL not so much. Everyone complains about Mac's aversion to drafting OL early, then you want to avoid drafting OL in rd. 1.
  10. 2020 Draft Prospects

    CB is still a need. I agree the main focus should be OL and WR, but let’s not pretend our D will be as successful next year without at least one above average CB. An edge would be nice, but we can’t fix everything in one year.
  11. **Mock the New Year**

    Love 1st three picks. Not a fan of RB in 3rd. Build the OL then get a RB next year. Another TE? Are going to carry 4?
  12. 2020 Draft Prospects

    That plan did not work so well for Mac.
  13. 2020 Draft Prospects

    Also keep an eye on Oregon’s Throckmorton #54, Lemieux #68 and Hansen #55. I like Lemieux in Rd. 3.
  14. Adam Gase’s job is safe per C. Johnson

    Where did you hear this? Link?
  15. Around the League: 2019 Edition

    Perhaps we are looking at it from different angles. I would like to see the Jets competitive and vie for a playoff spot next year. Allowing RA to move on leaves us a hole that may not be filled next year. While I would most certainly like to see sustained success, I do not think we are that far off if we just get a good OL such that we can’t begin that next year. Like I have said before, RA > $10 million is no good. $10 or less I can live with.
