  1. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    7 of top 9 still haven’t signed. I don’t get it either but I’m not worried yet. The amount of money is set by the collective bargaining agreement. As far as I understand the rookie contracts, it really just comes down to how the signing bonus money is handled and something about “offset” language which would stop a player that is cut in his 4th year from being paid in full by the drafting team plus get paid by whatever team signs him. My feeling is give him whatever he wants. We have plenty of cash and his cap hit will be the same regardless. Also if he’s cut after 3 years, the team that signs him will probably only pay the minimum, so we’re talking about saving maybe a million or two.
  2. Predict the 53 man roster

    I agree. Right now there are so many possible scenarios. I do hope, if we trade him it’s for at least a 2nd. If he was to be our starting QB all year, more than likely we would either lose him in free agency for a 3rd or franchise and trade him. The problem with losing him through free agency is that we could sign a high price free agent that would negate his value. The bottom line for me is that he has no future here so if we can get a good deal before the trading deadline we should trade him. I believe(hope)Sam will be our starting QB in 2019 regardless of what he does this year.
  3. Predict the 53 man roster

    If we trade Bridgewater by the end of preseason, do you think we would bring Hackenberg back as the 3rd QB, sign someone like Clemens or Anderson, or just go with two QBs? I really don’t see us carrying McCown, Teddy and Sam all year. As a fan there is no way I want to see Sam carrying a clipboard on game day. If Teddy is healthy he has already shown that he can be a top 15-20 starting QB, and McCown had maybe his best year ever in 2017, so I don’t see either of them, if healthy, as 3rd stringers either. Also here’s a nice summary of over 80 players on our current roster https://www.jetnation.com/2018/07/10/new-york-jets-whos-that-guy-jets-training-camp-cheat-sheet/
  4. Offseason news/rumours

    IMO, it’s only a good trade for Jacksonville if they are finished with Bortles. Otherwise they would be giving up on a 24 year, top3 draft choice that got them 8 sacks playing less than half the time, for a backup QB. I don’t think they they have given up on Bortles and if they want Teddy as a backup/ insurance we would have to give up a lot more
  5. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    Lol you’re older but I was following them since 65 so my wait is just as long. So many bad years but 4 years where I felt we had a good chance were in 82 when Shula didn’t have the field covered and McNeil was useless in the mud; 86 when Mehl and than Klecko went down when we were 10-1 (I think Gastineau was also out for most of the season); 98 when if they had instant replay I think a bad call on Leon Johnson might have been reversed and 2010 when we just came out I’ll prepared for Pittsburgh. But since the Super Bowl we have had almost double the amount of 10 or more losses in a seasons as those with 10 or more wins.
  6. Offseason news/rumours

    I agree on both counts. There were a lot of good players we could haven taken in the second round over the years, we just didn’t. The OL protects the QB and allows the running game to take place. IMO we should be drafting OL players every year.
  7. It’s sort of surprising since I really thought Teddy would be the one to go, either because he showed enough to get a much higher draft pick or still showed signs of his injury causing us to cut him I guess if either of those scenarios happen we could go with 2 QBs or sign a free agent. For us to get that pick we have to hope he beats out Connor Cook for 3rd string on Oakland. I think EJ Manuel’s experience gives him the edge as their backup.to Carr.
  8. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    I don’t think Bowles, like Rex before him, has edge rusher as a high priority. IMO he wants to apply pressure up the middle and have a strong secondary. I’m hoping Garcia can win either one of the starting OL positions or at least beat out Qvale or Ijalana for a backup position. I think if healthy he could at least be a future starter while Qvale and Ijalana are, IMO, only backups. The last two years had some good middle round RBs but we passed and instead took a 6th and 7th rounder so I don’t feel confident that we will go RB. Mac does not seem to draft RB and OL early. IMO our WR group can be good this year if Enunwa and Pryor are healthy. I see no reason why Anderson can’t duplicate or better last year’s numbers and Kearse is a solid option. A lot of questions for 2019 regarding Stewart, Hansen, Smith, Peake, and even Marshall. Hopefully one or two of them will step up and not require we spend a lot of money on mostly average talent.
  9. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    Sigh Just my opinion but Mac has very little interest in building an OL. He drafted two 5th rounders in 4 drafts and in free agency signed 4 guys coming off poor years or injuries. We still have 4 OL from Idzik years that will probably make our team - Winters, Ijalana, Qvale and Dozier. I think the only other players that have been here from Pre Mac are Q and Powell (Davis and Kerley were brought back by Mac).
  10. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    They also signed Carlos Hyde for triple the money we give Crowell. I don’t know why they let Crowell go but the way I’m not expecting much and feel that whatever we get from him will be a bonus. I really wish we had drafted John Kelly or Mark Walton. I do think(hope) Flowers could also get some time at RB
  11. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    If given the opportunity I think Darnold will be ready to start in week one. https://jetswire.usatoday.com/2018/05/05/sam-darnold-already-far-along-in-learning-jets-playbook/
  12. Offseason news/rumours

    If he’s good I think we trade him. A lot of teams don’t have quality backups, so if a QB like Alex Smith, Watson, Dalton, Luck, Tannehill, Wilson, Garoppolo, Mahomes, or Brees get a long term injured, a healthy Teddy could get a 2nd. If Brady goes down I don’t think we trade him to the Pats even for a 1st. The only way they get him is if he makes it into free agency. IMO
  13. FF Jets Forum Draft - Pick 107 Poll

    I would have take John Kelly, RB even though he eventually went in the 6th. Since he wasn’t on the list, I selected Walton. Sweat wouldn’t have been a bad pick either. I just think RB and edge are better values than TE. I also like Bucky Hodges and wanted to see him get a shot. With 5 TEs on our roster I feel he’ll be at the bottom of our depth charts
  14. I like an early trade back in the 1st or 2nd rounds because your still dealing with top prospects, but trading back to pick up a 7th just seems like a waste. There were 3 players I liked between 157-167 - Okoronkwo Edge, Jaylan Samuels - FB, RB, TE, and WR, and OG, Wyatt Teller.. I thought OO and Teller would go in 2nd -3rd and Samuels no later than the 4th.
  15. Offseason news/rumours

    I was thinking Teddy straight up for Fowler. A first that produced for 2 years for one that has one good year. It would at least make Bortles work harder to maintain his job and give Jacksonville a viable option at QB if he doesn’t.
