    Mahomes,TJ, Watson, White, Lattimore, Kittles would have been too much of a reach on draft day but would go ahead of him now.
  3. Jamal Adams Trade Thread

    IMO comparing Adams to Revis is ridiculous. In 2009 Revis had one of the best years ever by a CB and was runner up for DPOY. He led the number one defense in the NFL that brought the Jets to the NFL championship game, something that would have never happened without him. IMO his request for more money was warranted. Even though he never reached the heights of 2009, from 2010-2012 he was still considered the best CB in the game.As a genuine shutdown CB Revis required OC’s to adjust their passing offense to account for him. He often, if not always, took the opponent’s best receiver out of the game. Adams is a very good strong safety and excellent blitzer but the Jets are 16-32 in his 3 years and have never been in playoff contention. So really, it reminds me of the story Ralph Kiner use to tell when he was broadcasting the Mets games. After leading the league in HRs for 7 straight years while on a last place team, his GM, Branch Rickey, wouldn’t give a raise because he said I could have finished in last place without you.. I’m sure that once a new TV deal is signed and the cap goes up, Adams will get paid. If JD thinks he’s worth the money, it might even be with the Jets. At this point it would be foolish to sign him because no one knows what next year’s cap will look like. There’s a good chance it might go down.
  4. 2021 Draft Thread

    Lol, That thought came to my mind too but the only way I could see it happen was if Sam had a complete collapse and we finished with the 1st or 2nd pick. I seriously don’t think that happens. In a worst case scenario where we finish with 4- 7 wins, and a bottom 10 offense, I think Gase will be gone and Sam will get one more chance with a new coach

    I agree. He was PFF’s highest rated CB going into the 2019 season. If he has potential I feel GW will play him to his strengths.
  6. 2020 NFL Free Agency: Rumors and Reports

    I hope this bold prediction made on NFL.com come true. 3) Jets QB Sam Darnold will become a star I still love Darnold. His rookie year was a classic roller-coaster ride, not at all helped by the dreadful offensive coordinating of Jeremy Bates, who was fired -- along with head coach Todd Bowles -- after the season. General manager Mike Maccagnan kept his job through 2019 free agency and the draft -- and then got canned. Because only the Jets. Adam Gase was brought in to maximize New York's second-year quarterback ... and Darnold got mono. But don't let all of this misfortune color your view of the No. 3 pick of the 2018 draft. He still has plenty of promise, especially with competent leadership now in the front office. GM Joe Douglas has shown plenty of promise in a short time on the job, with a calculating, savvy approach. He brilliantly beefed up the offensive line this offseason, adding a whole bunch of big bodies in free agency, then spending the Jets' first-round pick on OT Mekhi Becton. This is how you properly protect a young quarterback, by OVERindulging on O-linemen. Now, Darnold's receiving corps is full of question marks -- which is why this prediction is bold in the first place -- but Douglas did add the explosive Denzel Mims in Round 2 of the draft. Down the stretch last season, after Darnold was recovered from mono, the young QB excelled. From Week 9 through 17, he averaged 245.2 passing yards per game and compiled a 14:5 TD-to-INT ratio, leading the Jets to a 6-3 record. Darnold has every intangible and tangible you want in a true franchise quarterback. And in 2020, it all comes together over the course of a full season.
  7. 2020 NFL Free Agency: Rumors and Reports

    I like that JD addresses the line. I only hope they can come together as a unit ASAP because, IMO, when talking about good OL play, it has to be as a unit. One weak spot can make a big difference. I look back at our 2011 team where we had 3 all pros (Mangold, Brick and Moore) a decent LG in Slauson but a revolving door in Hunter. Sanchez was sacked 39 time, 5th highest. OL deficiencies can be overcome with a team that runs the ball because they can better utilize the strengths of their line, but a team relying on the pass for 55-60% of their offense are at the mercy of their weakest link. Last year we passed about 58% of the time. If we maintain that pace and the OL has a weak link, Sam will still be running for his life.
  8. 2021 Draft Thread

    That makes sense. The NFL and NFLPA would have to agree on some new pay scale probably between what the bottom half of the 1st and 3rd. 50 of the top 100 prospects listed by the draft network were eligible for the 2020 draft. Most of them would probably have been picked from the middle of the 1st to the 5th. If they are all allowed to enter the current supplemental draft, I think it will give an unfair advantage to playoff teams since teams like us (who could end up with a top ten pick) might not want to use it on a Smith, Humphrey, Leatherwood,Wade, Etienne or Moss while teams like San Fran, Seattle, KC might jump on them feeling that that caliber of player probably wouldn’t be available at the end round 1.

    That’s pretty funny but I’m hoping Austin and Hall change all that for the next 5-10 years 🤞🏼
  11. State Of The Roster

    I agree. If the goal was to get a competent backup, there are a lot of veterans with starting experience that could fill that roll -Siemien, Stanton, Moore,Geno, etc. Just last week (or was it last month, hard to tell anymore I heard it mentioned that Sanchez was Dax’s mentor in his first year. IMO Sam just needs somebody with experience to talk to not someone he might end up competing again. .
  12. Potential Midseason Trades

    I agree that stats can be misleading depending on the situation But, IMO Sam’s stats and his overall play have been below average. Productivity in the NFL isn’t a straight line where every game the player has the same stats... Sam has had 10 games with a passer rating 90 or above, 11 games under 80 and the other 5 in the 80s. Add in the fumbles and he is below average. Now those games where he excelled leave hope that he, still only 23, will find consistency and be a top QB. But until he does he is what his stats show, Same holds true with Perriman. Also, his appeal is based off the stats in his last 5 games when he had over 25% of his 4 career receptions and almost 33% of his career yardage. Some might see it as him finally breaking out while others might say the productivity was mostly in garbage time for a losing team with gunslinger that threw for over 5000 yards. Only time will tell
  13. 2020 NFL Free Agency: Rumors and Reports

    Over the last 5 years, 29 different teams have made the playoffs at least once (only NE made it all 5 years) the reason for that, imo, is because of the way that free agency is handled. The only teams to not make the playoffs are us, TB and Cleveland. Basically 4-8 teams make the playoffs that didn’t make it the previous year. I truly believe this is what the NFL wanted. Teams all have the same salary cap and start off with the same number of draft choices. Imo poor cap management and poor drafting is completely on the GMs (or whoever is the decision maker)
  14. Breakout Stars 2021

    Just some guesses Rodney Anderson, if healthy, will give Cinncy a formidable 1-2 punch at RB (with Mixon). Higgins was my 2nd favorite receiver in this years draft and Jonah Williams was my top OT from 2019, so if Burrow is the real deal, Cinncy will have a great offense. Preston Williams, if healthy, will be a 1000 yd receiver with either Fitz or Tua
  15. Jets 2020 Draft Grade

    I don’t know anything about Mann and I hope he is everything good that’s being said about him but I would have selected WR James Proche with his 204 receptions and 27 TDs over his last two seasons or Isaiah Hodgins with his 86 receptions and 13 TDs last season
