  1. Hah I didn't see this during the game: Good to see them having fun out there.
  2. A really good showing in general. I must admit I was originally thinking the team would have completely given up by this point in the season. McCown now finished 6 of his 9 games with a passer rating above 100. I can't imagine anyone was expecting that. We don't have as much talent as most of the teams we're playing, but the wins and hard-fought close losses are probably doing more for the team going forward than a top draft pick would. That said, our schedule going forward isn't super easy so enjoy it while it lasts.
  3. Week 7: Jets at Dolphins

    It's hard to screw up a game that badly. The tank is back on, it seems. Skrine certainly was all over that plan. I agree with those who said he needs to be gone, immediately. He's not good or improving. No reason to keep him around.
  4. The Random Thread

    Here's what I don't understand: why would Kyle Shanahan leave the Falcons to join the 49ers as HC? I know it's a promotion and more money and moving up the ladder etc, but it seemed so shortsighted to me at the time and doesn't look much better now. He joined an organisation that recently lost a fantastic (albeit a hard to deal with) coach because he and management couldn't see eye to eye. He left a record-setting offense to join a team where Brian Hoyer was far and away their best option at QB, and the rest of the team isn't exactly talent rich. He gets to be HC but he's in a very difficult situation where it's very hard to make himself look good. The Falcons offense seems to miss him badly and the 49ers are are 0-7 whilst the "worst roster ever" Jets have 3 wins. So, everybody lost. He's 37 and I just don't understand the rush. It probably bothers me more than it should, but I was hoping the Falcons would do well this year and I could follow them along with the energy I'm not using on the Jets.
  5. Random Game Talk

    I played it about a year ago and thought i was a great little adventure game with a well-told story and some great voice acting that brings the characters to life. Well worth your time if you don't need your games to always be about killing everything on screen.
  6. Random Game Talk

    Just finished Tyranny, Obsidian's most recent Baldur's Gate style isometric RPG. Such a great game, and it seems weird now that I'd put off playing it for so long. The gameplay's great and the story felt a whole lot more unique than anything other than Planescape that I've come across in these types of games. I'm really happy that great games of this type are being made again (Pillars of Eternity, Divinity: Original Sin 1+2, Wasteland 2, Torment, etc)
  7. Week 5 GDT: Jets vs. Browns

    So far we've been pretty terrible twice on the road and surprisingly decent at home twice. It will be interesting to see if it's the opponent or the home vs. away nature of the games that's been the major factor so far.
  8. Mike Maccagnan Thread

    I saw an update on this on reddit that might interest people. The starters that the Jets parted ways with that had people claim they were tanking: From: https://www.reddit.com/r/nfl/comments/74neet/the_starters_that_the_jets_parted_ways_with_which/ I don't have a lot of context on these, but some of them surprised me. Decker and Harris in particular. Richardson is presumably fine, just without big stats to his name. I was also under the impression that Gilchrist was starting, or at least playing a fair bit. Interesting either way. This is usually more like what happens when the Patriots get rid of a big name than when we do.
  9. Assassin's Creed Origins

    Looks good from what little I've seen. I liked AC1 and AC2, and Black Flag was great. I also own AC3 but it didn't do it for me. I skipped half of the games because they didn't seem to be a big enough change, or reviewed averagely. I am really interested in this though, and like others have suggested it's mostly because of the setting, which is typically what these games do best. They also finally seemed to realise that giving us a break between games and maybe making the games a bit more distinctive would be a good idea. Hopefully that's true.
  10. Week 4: Jets Vs Jags

    I can barely believe it. I'd always thought Wilk was a great, hard-working professional. What a shame.
  11. Week 4: Jets Vs Jags

    It's nice to see that we're not very good at tanking. At first I just really didn't want to go 0-16 and have that hanging over the team forever, but if the 2005 and 2007 teams could win four games, maybe this year's team can too. Tough remaining schedule though outside of the browns, dolphins, and chargers. Hopefully we can stay competitive and keep finding some good young players.
  12. The Random Thread

    I highly recommend watching whichever game Tony Romo is calling next week. He was fantastic in the Raiders-Titans game and helped make it really enjoyable. I was expecting him to just be "not Phil Simms" (which is plenty on its own), but he was actually insightful and seemed to be really having a great time.
  13. Week 1: So we're really doing this, huh?

    Yep, this about sums it up. For the first time in my ~15 years of watching football, I didn't even try to watch the Jets play. In week one. I watched Oakland-Tennessee instead. It was a good game. If the Jets aren't seriously going to try to win games, then why would I waste my time watching them? We tried to lose, and we lost. Nothing to see here.
  14. Week 1: So we're really doing this, huh?

    The NE loss in week one pretty much marks the high point of our season I'm pretty sure. It was pretty great though, so I can deal with that.
  15. Preseason - Jets vs Giants

    So Petty finished with a perfect QB rating, going 15/18 for 250 yards, 3TD 0INT. He played against 2s and 3s. He had a touchdown where not one but two Giants DBs fell over. He had a touchdown where Powell just caught a short pass and ran like 75 yards. And he had a touchdown where nobody even bothered to cover Stewart. Still, I can't imagine Hack getting those stats with no defenders on the field. Petty should be #2. Or even #1, because I completely fail to see the point in playing a 38 year old on this team.
