  3. Jets fire Mike Maccagnan.

    Rumours we are going to add Peyton Manning to the front office. Thoughts?
  4. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    This debate on Mac needs to move on now. He hasn’t been fired and most likely won’t until the conclusion of the season (if it goes bad) so let’s just stick a pin in this for the time being.
  5. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    Again though you have to look at both sides to the coin. This is not a case of one side being a big time homer fan and the other a pessimistic Debbie Downer. There is a middle ground to this discussion. I really like some of the moves Mac has made over his time here. He’s finally delivered us a franchise qb (regardless if Sam fell in his lap or not) and he’s built a strong nucleus of defensive talent that includes some real young studs. We’ve also finally got weapons that teams have to plan to defend unlike many years over the last decade. However I can also understand the view about Mac (and the organisation in general) in that we’ve heard the same thing year in and year out since basically 2011 and yet we’ve never reached the playoffs and only posted 1 winning season. Weve also seen a barren run of results over the last three years which quite frankly has not been good enough. Only time will tell but I see us having a real bounce back year this year. I don’t know about playoffs etc but I can see us at least hitting .500 and hopefully those close games (which we seem to always lose) can be turned into wins. Without sounding like a prick; Iv played sport at a professional level and I can’t stress enough how much a coach/manager has on the mindset of players. Having Gase and Williams (who are both the Alpha personality) who to quote Herm “Play to win the game” will set the tone for us. Having a mild mannered coach can make the weaker minded players complacent and lazy. Iv played for both types of coaches and believe me I know which type could get that extra 10% out of me. I was threatened (not literally I hope!) that my coach would shoot me with his shotgun at half time in a crucial game...,needless to say I performed better in the second half!
  6. The Random Thread (TAJT!)

    That’s cool. How did you find it? Iv done martial arts since I was 3yrs old (My Grandfather was a 5th Dan Black Belt in Karate), but Iv never done much grappling bar little bits here and there. Started a new BJJ school close to where I live and really like it so far. The classes are 6:00-7:15am so I’m back home before my kids are up so doesn’t disrupt them so it’s a win-win!

    Does anyone train in BJJ?
  8. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    Without wanting to get splinters in my arse I must admit il be sitting on the fence with the one. I can completely see both parts to the discussion and to be quite frank; I’m non the wiser entering Mac’s 4th season if we will become the team we all want or instead the ‘new’ rebuild/cycle will start again with his firing. Let’s be honest; Mac was brought in here as a direct opposite of the fired John Idzik. Idzik came from the financial end of the spectrum whereas Mac was the well sought after head scout. Unfortunately the area in which Mac specialised in (scouting/drafting) hasn’t been acceptable. I don’t care what averages are given or success rate etc. We’ve had some horrendous picks. However....we have our franchise qb and also key playmakers on both sides of the ball. Do we need more?? Of course we do, but I like the squad we have now and also the flexibility both with a full selection of future draft picks and cap space moving forward. Fast forward twelve months and I’d like to see us of performed well during the season and showed huge potential with our younger players. Id like us to aggressively attack key positions like OT, CB, WR and pass rusher. Those positions are highly important and we need to keep making moves to improve these key areas. Id say it’s without doubt the most optimistic Iv felt entering a season since the Rex days. I’m giving Mac the benefit of a clean slate moving forward and will give him my full backing. If he falls short then he will be out the door but fingers crossed he can get us to where we need and deserve to be.
  9. Jets select TE Trevon Wesco in round 4

    Wasn’t a fan of the pick but that breakdown from Baldy makes me feel a little better about it!!
  10. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    To be honest I’m all for going BPA for the whole draft as in the long run it’s certainly the best approach. The Blake Cashman pick is a true indicator of that. On the surface you think “what the hell” but within a year we could move on from Avery and Lee and he’s a cheap young stater next to CJ. What a don’t like though I using high round picks on positions which don’t give you that shot of finding a diamond in the rough. No offence to Wesco (and Iv not seen anything of him so can’t pretend I know his game inside and out) but the scouting reports are that he’s a very good blocking tight end. Even if he pans out and becomes our starting blocking tight end; Is that really the best we could do with that pick?! I’m not sure!?!

    Thanks for that write up mate as il be honest I didn’t know much about the UDFA we signed. The thing that is most apparent is you listed 7 guys who potentially could make the 53, which when you think about it kind of sums up the talent level of our team.

    I hope we bring him back or try and trade for someone

    He won’t pick them bro!! 😩
  15. Official 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    Why not gamble on pass rushers/wide receivers and hope they pan out. That’s how the good teams do it. You don’t draft a blocking tight end in the fourth round. It’s just laughable this point. Even the biggest Macc fans must know he’s ****ed up now!!
