  1. 2019/2020 Offseason

    I’ll be paying close attention to what Jeremiah and McShay have to say. Both could have easily been in our front office. So, clearly JD values their opinion. Not saying he’ll be asking them. But they’ll give us a glimpse of what could be going on in our front office. Found it interesting that Jeremiah has Whirfs as a guard and he only has 2 OT with top 15 grades. McShay doesn’t seem high on this OL class. At least not at the top. Both have Lamb and Jeudy as top 10 picks.
  2. First Mock Off-Season

    I like the idea of adding Dorsett. Nice low key signing that I think works for Gase and Darnold. I’m on the Lamb bandwagon. So I’m happy with that pick. Bell was 7th in receptions by a RB. Not sure I agree with your comment about Gase not throwing to RBs. The Howard signing doesn’t seem like a good match to me.
  3. free agents we should think about

    My one free agent would be Graham Glasgow. I like that he can play all three iOL positions at a high level. That gives us flexibility.
  4. 2019/2020 Offseason

    Provides an alternative stop gap to Beachum. I’d stick with Beachum on a 2 year deal while we continue to invest in the OL. It’s unrealistic to expect 5 new starters. Get two lineman in FA and two with the top 4 picks. Have Alex Smith and Edoga compete for a starting spot as well. Compton and Harrison round out the unit.
  5. 2019 All-Pro Team Results

    Nice to see Jamal make first team all pro. It’s been fun watching his game improve each year. First year he was mostly just good against the run. Second year continued to be good against the run but was also very good in coverage. This year he continued those two things and shined as a blitzer. Can’t wait to see what he adds next year.
  6. 2020 Draft Prospects

    I don’t think there’s a realistic scenario where OL is not a good pick in round 1. Someone like Tyler Biadasz who’s ranked in the 20’s would be a good pick even at 11. If an OL player is ranked as a first round prospect, picking him at 11 is fine by me.

    Nice post. I came to similar conclusions after going back and listening to interviews.
  8. 2019/2020 Offseason

    I agree. Everyone speaks about the Gase offense. I honestly dont know what it is. I went back and listened to what players were saying in training camp and what Gase said throughout his career. Im 100% sure he does not like players who feel the offense should go through him. No TO types. Enunwa actually said in preseason that Gase’s offense attacks weaknesses. He did say part of the reason he liked Thomas was that he knew the system. He also said Thomas fit what he is trying to do. Pure guess but I think he wants smart, reliable YAC players. He doesn’t want go to players. JD wants to build through the trenches. JD is super clear about that. The only way I see this working is to just spend money on the OL and get reasonable guys who fit the system at skill positions. He doesn’t seem like a coach who is going to change. JD is going to have to get him squares if that what fits.

    So what does Gase look for from his skilled players? From the slot, he seems to like smart shifty players. Crowded seems like a great match. What about RB? In Miami, he seemed to prefer Drake over Ajayi. He also seems to like a committee approach. Anyone know why he didn’t like Ajayi? What about outside receivers? He had success in Denver with big receivers like Decker and D Thomas. He clearly likes D Thomas since he brought him back. Has Gase said what he likes about him? Im trying to understand what the perfect Gase roster looks like. Edit: looked up some quotes from Gase on Thomas. He said Thomas is Smart and Versatile. He said he’s a big man that can run. A player that you get the ball in his hands and let him run. Somewhat consistent to why he likes Crowder. Smart and good after the catch. But it seems like he wants that type of player but just a bigger body. If only Enunwa could stay healthy. Seems like he would be a match.
  10. How are those rookies doing?

    Yup. By now, Jets fan joke about the best player in the draft thing. We've gotten "lucky" a few times. Leo dropped to us and then we supposedly got lucky with Quinnen. I don't know what I will do if we draft another DT in the first round. With that said, I'm not giving up on Quinnen. He showed signs that he can be an an impact player. I'll give him another year or two before I start dogging him.
  11. How are those rookies doing?

    Grades are public. The membership gives you access to more detailed stats and you can see how they rank against other players at their position. Lindstrom's grade was a 66.6 which, I believe, is a borderline starter in their grading. I don't have a membership to know where he ranks against other guards though.
  12. How are those rookies doing?

    My take on the Jets draft picks (3) Quinnen Williams iDL: Has been average most of the year. Nothing spectacular. Not what you want from the 3 overall pick. Shows flashes at times. So, there's potential for a year 2 jump. (68) Jochai Polite Edge: Disaster of a pick. He was cut in training camp. (92) Chuma Edoga OT: Showed flashes in training. I think best case scenario is he becomes a good backup swing tackle. Coaches seem to like him though. (121) Trevon Wesco TE: Descent pick. He's solid depth. (157) Blake Cashman LB: Showed flashes early in the season. I think he's solid depth. (181) Blessum Austin CB: Was still recovering from his injury early in the season. When he returned to the team, he showed high level play. Bu then got benched by Gregg Williams for giving up a terrible TD to the Steelers at the end of the 1st half. But he showed that he has the ability to be a starting CB. He's very physical. Not a good draft class. Best case scenario is we have 2 starters (Quinnen and Austin) and some solid depth players.
  13. How are those rookies doing?

    He's been average. The biggest fear every Jets fan had when we drafted is coming true so far. He looks like the Leo Williams. He looks quick at times. I'm hoping an offseason strength and condition program will go a long way in getting him from being just an average player to an above average player.

    What’s going with Leonard Williams? Are the Giants not considering resigning him? I thought it was an even trade at the time and was happy. Looking back, we fleeced the Giants.
  15. Around the League: 2019 Edition

    Hmm. That’s a lot higher than I was thinking. The Redskins wanted a 1st for Trent Williams and couldn’t get it. Cleveland was supposedly offering 2 mid round picks. Both are comparable players but Tyron is 2 years younger. Both haven’t played a complete 16 games in forever. Smith since 2015 and Trent since 2013.
