You can tell by the questions they ask that these press guys are trying hard to poke wholes in this organization. They're trying to create headlines. You can hear it in the questions they ask the players, coaches and front office staff. Nobody is budging.

Joe Douglas gets asked a questions about Woody coming back...doesn't create a headline.

Vitt on his relationship with Gregg...no headlines 

Gase on back stabbing Macc... no headlines

All players and coaches on Bell not showing up for voluntary practices...no headlines

Gregg gets asked about Vitt...no headlines.

 

Just on and on and the team keeps shutting it down. Love it. Reporters should now focus on reporting about football stuff. It's going to be a big change for them. 

This is NY media.  Competing for headlines and sales.  Has always been that way.  So yes, the team needs to shut it down as you noted.  Giants are going to have  circus soon with the QB situation so hopefully that becomes the attention of the media in NY.   But winning will stop the tabloid reporting too.

Exactly. Best way to silence awful media... is to win.

Douglas’ take on Jets roster:

- Likes Darnold

- Likes the skilled players especially Robby

- Thinks the defense is strong up the middle. Seems to agree with Gase about Leo. 

 

Noyhing surprising to me. I pretty much agree with what he said. He didn’t comment on edge, corner and OLine. But I’ll take his silence as a sign that those are the areas we need help.

I think Leonard Williams is gonna have his best season under Gregg Williams and contract year. 

I agree. Same with Robby under Gase. That’s why I’m hoping we extend both of them now. Give Robby an Enunwa type contract. Extend Leo in that 12-14 range per year.

Joe Douglas, has been watching tapes of all the Jet players from last year, and the one player he has real been very impressed with is Rob Anderson. He loves is ability to get open, especially on deep pass patterns. It sure looks like we finally got the GM we want after all these years.

Reportedly Philly was trying to get Robby.
