  1. Jets Release Bryce Petty

    Had to be done. Hack has more upside (though I doubt he'll ever take a snap for us) so he's the better one to keep around for a bit longer and see if he amounts to something. Petty went 1-6 as a starter with us I just saw. It was news to me that he won a game with us. Good for him.
  2. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    Well I'm ready to get on board the Darnold train. Let's hope this is it and we have our first franchise guy since Mr Pennington.
  3. With the 3rd pick the N.Y. Jets select....

    As someone who's watched zero college games and practically zero film on anyone for this draft, I'm going: 1. Baker Mayfield 2. Josh Rosen (though the concussions scare me) 3. Saquon Barkley I tend to believe in the 60% passing mark being important, so Allen seems like a wild swing for the fences to me. Darnold I don't even know. I just don't like the sound of his his name for us, for some reason.
  4. The Random Thread (TAJT!)

    Awesome, thanks for the suggestions. I don't know how many of the other cities I'll get to visit just yet, but I'll definitely hit Dar Poeta on your recommendation.
  5. The Random Thread (TAJT!)

    Good stuff. Looks really cool. Added to the list. Thanks
  6. The Random Thread (TAJT!)

    Just me. I'll be in Europe for a business trip, and I've wanted to visit Rome in particular for a while so I figured I'd go while I'm nearby.

    Thanks so much for the info @xenajets. Those islands do indeed look incredible, and I wouldn't have even thought of getting off the mainland.
  8. The Random Thread (TAJT!)

    Hey a couple of you guys are Italian, right? Is there any must-see stuff in Italy I should look into? I'm going to be over there in the summer. Mostly in Rome but places like Florence and Naples aren't too far either. I could venture out farther with a compelling reason. I'm not a big art guy, but I'm open to a bit of anything. I'm very into ancient Roman history, which is my reason for going.
  9. God of War (2018)

    I was barely even paying attention to this but the reviews have been crazy. Suddenly I'm disappointed that it isn't out for another week or so. Looks like a must-have.
  10. Nintendo Switch Thread

    My 474 hours on the Steam version suggest that I think it's pretty great. It's hilarious fun when you're garbage and it's so satisfying when you notice yourself getting better and better over time.
  11. I'm fairly happy so far. We're far from the most attractive landing place for free agents, so we did alright I think. I like the Trumaine Johnson signing a lot because defenses really are different with a good #1 CB, and Claiborne (who I liked already) will do better in the #2 spot. I really want to get rid of Skrine though. I lost patience with him every single season. Replacing Wesley Johnson was a must. I'd have liked more O-line help than just Spencer Long but we'd have had to throw out a lot of money for that so I can't fault Macc too much. We've done enough to ensure that Hackenberg and Petty should be nowhere near the team ever again and that was goal #1. There's just something about trading up to #3 instead of #1 or #2 that seems awfully dangerous. Trading three second round picks to get the third best QB in the draft, you better hope that third best QB is still pretty good. The team is worthless without a good QB though, and the aggressive move up to make a legitimate attempt at finding one instead of taking flyers on guys like Hackenberg is definitely the right way to go. I'm not a big fan of Crowell or Pryor, but we didn't exactly break the bank for them so I'm fine with it.
  12. Jets trade up to 3

    I really wanted him to be our QB coach with a look at becoming OC and see where things go. Not that that will surprise anyone. Last I heard on a podcast with him and Eric Allen, Chad made it pretty clear that the work involved in NFL-level coaching would take him away from his family too much for his liking, at least while his kids are young.
  13. Jets trade up to 3

    This is why I keep going back and forth on whether I like our trade up. Whilst I love the aggression and commitment, at #3 we are in all likelihood getting our third favourite QB. And if he's a guy in serious need of development... it seems like something we'll mess up.
  14. Jets Closing in on WR Terrelle Pryor

    Seems like a relatively cheap deal so he's worth a shot, even though I heard he was pretty bad last year. I'm still assuming Anderson will get a suspension, so I'm all for signing Hurns too.
  15. Jets trade up to 3

    Also this is a hell of a name: "Joshua Ballinger Lippincott Rosen"
