Because I do. Just like everyone else does.

No. You don't. I don't just say things for the sake of saying them. I've made myself pretty clear recently that I believe that where a player is drafted matters a lot regardless of their talent. Is Lawrence the best QB prospect in the draft? Unquestionably. If drafted by the Jets do I believe he will live up to the hype? Not in the slightest.

I absolutely do and so does everyone else in the league. You're not fooling anyone.

I'm not even attempting to fool anyone.

The fact that you're claiming you would pass on Lawrence if he went to the Jets makes that very clear.

You have no faith in Joe Douglas Eh.  Just took a over

I didn't make a, as you put it, "claim". I made a statement. 

Now the more complex part is that we draft before the NFL does, but logical conclusion would suggest if the Jets end up with the #1 overall pick, they'll draft Lawrence.

Do you know the definition of insanity?

It applies to drafting players that end up on bad teams that no matter what, always seem to be bad.

Not necessarily.  The Bengals have had success with QBs imo, Carson Palmer pre injury.

Also pass rushers themselves are a different animal. 

In BDL, its easier for a Burrow or a Garrett to have eventual success. A QB of the Jets seems pretty doomed for the next few seasons cuz that team has very little talent.

I don't necessarily think the 3 QB prospects you mentioned were universally seen as "great" prospects. Just because the they were taken high, doesn't mean they were viewed as great prospects by anyone but the Jets. There are tons of examples of teams reaching for QB's and it not panning out, the Jets have just done it more than anyone.

If you want to be accurate, you lied. But it's a moot point because you're not getting the first pick anyways.

You're right, let me.put this a different way. The last good QB the Jets had was Joe Namath.

I never thought I'd get the first pick, but if I do and the Jets do, you can rest assured, Lawrence will be on the board for Portland at 2.
