    It's true our last two outings were very successful. 2006 we were never going to beat another playoff team though. It'd be interesting to know how our Fitz-led 2015 team would've done.

     

    But yeah, though we have the longest playoff appearance drought in the league right now (by five seasons, next after us from the 2010 season is Denver's superbowl from the 2015 season), the Lions, Dolphins, Raiders, and "Football Team" all have longer win droughts, and the Bears have the same.

     

    I barely even remember what it's like being in the playoffs.

    I'd still argue that firing rex was so reactionary and short sighted. He had a system in place and could get the team fired up and ready to go. It was unfair the expect him to crush it every season when he he still competing in a division with Tom and bill.  We should have stayed in our lane, got a new QB and kept going.

    Instead, as a franchise we decided that we were going to just blow it up every two years and hope to catch lightning in a bottle. Every reset throws away the draft picks we used on the previous reset because everyone wants to start fresh... It's why Marcus mate is the longest tenured jet at like.... 4 seasons. It's a joke. You cannot build a team without getting a game plan and actually committing to it.

    I haven’t looked at his numbers by game but he seems like a compiler stats wise. Some big games and some where he’s non existent

    The one difficult thing about trying to figure out the usefulness of our players is how much the staggering lack of talent across the board makes it easier for opponents to key in on any potential playmakers and neutralize them. If JFM is able to put up good stats without talent around him, one has to wonder what he could do with a real pass rusher near by. Same with Q. Get some competent linebackers and maybe there can be a greater focus on play calls where he can let it rip,knowing the linebackers will be able to make stops behind him.

    Of course, the opposite could be true in that those guys are seeing a ton of snaps on d and generating stats based purely on volume and/or garbage time

  3. Didn't realize there was a fellow New Englander in our club. I'm over in NH. 

    As for the mock, not in love with Stingley at 4. More of a position issue than anything. I feel like CBs bust so much that it's not worth going high on them. The risk is just so high at that spot.

    I love Linderbaum at ten. I had been hoping we would have ended up with 6 and been able to move down a few spots to grab him.

    I don't mind Dean as an undersized backer since that's how we seem to be prioritizing backers anyway. I would like a thumper at some point to to help on rush downs.

    I like Ross as a flyer late. He was originally expected to go in the first last year before the injuries forced him to go back to school this year right?

    I Would be pretty happy with this draft if we can sign a top TE and get some good depth guys for d and maybe a guard or tackle.

    Based on what? He isn’t mismanaged he hasn’t worked hard enough or made the plays when called upon. Not to mention Jeff Smith is 10x the route runner Mims is. Mims might work out elsewhere but it’s not happening here he’s a square peg in this O.

    If that's the case, why didn't the Jets trade him when they were getting offers for him at the deadline?

    Then why not trade him and get something for him?  Why turn down offers?  And if they did not like the offer, not playing him isn’t going to increase his value. 

    So much this.

    The Jets have mismanaged Mims as an asset if they hated him as much as it seems they should have taken what ever they were offered at the deadline. Not playing him kills whatever value he may have had if they were intent in the idea that he sucked .

     

    The season is lost and he has upside. He should be playing over Jeff Smith a keeland Cole

    7 wins is disappointing but 8 is fine? My man come on lol

    7 wins and 10 losses feels the same as going 6-10 in a 16 game schedule, to me anyway.

    It's three games under 500.

    8-9 or 9-8 feels like 500.

    10-7+ feels like a good season.

  7. They are not going to give rookie of the year to a wide receiver over a QB that "led" his team to the playoffs and looked better than the 4 QBs taken above him.

    Chase deserves it more, but this is the NFL. Is a QB driven league. They will want to make the QB as big a star as possible.

  8. Seahawks and Jets should both lose next weekend (Jets vs bills , hawks vs Cardinals). It's unlikely that the Texans will win, and the Panthers are playing the BUCS so that should be a loss to. Would effectively leave us at 4 and 6 in round one.

    There’s 31 teams worth of fans hoping this is true, and hoping that their team is the one that can salvage his talent by plucking him out of the doldrums of that moribund franchise. 

    Worked pretty well for San Francisco, anyway. 

    I hope we don't bail on him but he had an injury that had something like a 5week recovery time and some how missed the entire season over it. A lot of work ethic concerns. Could easily be a jamarcus Russell situation.

    Think there are more questions with our first pick than the Seahawks pick will fall into pace. the problem with our pick now than TB   has locked up the first place in their conference will they rest all the star players, the same thing could be said about the Bills game. If we win the last two this year it could knock us out of a top ten pick. The Bills game that is less likely to happen, but you never know.

    Tb locked up their division, not the conference. This is huge because only the top spot gets a bye now. TB will have to try for the bye so they should be plenty motivated still. 

    The pats are going to beat the jags. That means the Bills will likely need a win in week 18 to lock up the division against us. They won't want to risk starting backups, losing, then have to go on the road in the playoffs. Not when a relatively easy win against a bad Jets team could give them home games.

    If you are going by all the failures in our previous first round picks OK,  but this team heeds a impact player and the higher we pick the better our changes 

    I think I'd love to see a deep dive into the bust rate by position. I'd almost think that teams like the Jets that historically struggle to make good picks would be better moving down to acquire more selections as a way to give them more shots at getting a hit.

    Patriots have given up no sacks, and enjoyed a 100-yd rusher. Yet even with that elite level of teammwork support, QB Mac Jones has looked awful. 

    What did the Bills figure out this game compared to their last meeting?

    How to score in the RedZone? They would have won the last game had they punched any of their three 4th quarter RedZone chances in that meeting.
