  1. OK I've done the research, seen the videos, listened to the "experts and I've come to the conclusion we should and will take Wilson at 2. I'm not saying I wouldn't trade down but I don't want to trade down that far into the 8-9 range some have mentioned . 6 is about as far as I'd want to go and even than, unless we were getting such a sweetheart deal, I don't see how Douglas goes down anywhere, past there. I just have a feeling the new coaching staff is going to want to bring in a new QB rather than try to fix an existing one hence Wilson. Now what we really should do and I've mentioned thi
  2. Well as I suspected would happen, my unreasonable hatred for Brady cost me $200. One of the worst SB's I've ever seen ever as it ranks up there with the Seattle/Denver debacle and the Pats/Rams bore fest as well just a few years ago. No question KC missing those O-lineman was huge and so Bowles took advantage of it as Bucs D dominated. Whatever kind of glad the season is over now so that we here in Jet land can get down to the business of making this team of ours at least competitive next year. Forget playoffs or anything like that, all I'm asking from Joe is to have a really good draft,
  3. I dunno Doc...I hear what your saying and I've tried to root for him...heck I even traded for him late this past season in my big $$ league and I still found myself not wanting to start him or root for him. I know it's unreasonable of me and I admit to being jaded from all those losses our Jets have suffered due to mostly him when we've played the Patriots but something about him always rubs me the wrong way. He's always whining, complaining and #####ing to the refs whenever he gets breathed on. When he loses, he invariably doesn't shake the opposing QB's hands unless it's a Brees, Mahome
  4. Gotta have some action for the SB and so the call for me is: Chiefs -3 for $100 which would win $83 Over 55 for $100 which would win $87 I might be just throwing away $200 but F it, no way on gods green earth can I or any Jet fan for that for that matter root for Brady and want him too do well. I mean ####, it's bad enough that we have to watch his pansy ### for the zillionth time in the SB. Not a chance in hell could I root for him to win it again even if means winning a little cashish. I'd rather lose 100-200 than root for Brady ..F him!....lol So go Chiefs and hopefully Mahomes h
  5. For ####s and giggles, I just rewatched some of the "highlights" of the Gase introductory presser from a few years ago and my lord what a #### show it really was. Besides the bug eyes and how bizarre that was, the way Gase communicated his vision compared to Saleh was like night and day. I could barely even comprehend what Gase wanted to accomplish. Saleh's vision and the way he's going to go about things were crystal clear....he's going to oversee everything for the most part. I love the fact that tho he's going to be involved with both the offense and defense. Jets need someone like that
  6. Been away on biz for a few days...couple of things: Was watching the Saleh presser online while I was away and I gotta say....sure there was a lot of "coach speak" going on but dang...what a tremendously different vibe you get from him than what Gase gave us 3 years ago. We got a new slogan too look forward too as well...."all gas no brakes" is the new mantra here for the Jets. The guy knows his ####, his passion for football resonates and most importantly he has normal eyes!....lol. In all seriousness, I really do like what I heard from Saleh.
  7. Biden slayed it...very inspired. I'm ready to run thru a wall for you coach!...😎
  8. You got to figure if the Jets trade down from 2 to let's say Atlanta even at 4, the Jets are going to get alot more than a 3rd and 4th rounder. If anything, I'd expect a 2nd rounder this year and probably a 1st and 3rd next year in order for us to move down. And if it's lets say the Panthers at 6, we should get alot more than that. I don't have that draft trade chart that they use handy but if Jets trade down, they are going to get a bigtime haul.
  9. I'm starting to wonder if Harris will even be there at 34 as his stock has gone way up. He's definitly be there at 23 but that might be too early too take him or Etienne. You guys convinced me of that a few weeks ago. So 34 would be golden but I'm afraid he's going to be gone same with Etienne.
  10. You make some good points and we are pretty much on the same page. I'm warming up to taking instead of Etienne who as you know I love, to instead taking Najee Harris at #34. We need someone like him...a playmaker who we can give the rock to 20 or so times a game. I know everyone says we can find RB's later in the draft and that may be true but when I see what guys like Derrick Henry and Dalvin Cook are doing both of them 2nd round picks, I really think bringing in a Harris with our 2nd round pick could be huge for this team....huge!!
  11. Now with the Saleh hire, my percentages of what we will do at the draft have shifted. I'm now 55% we trade down and get a haul which is up from 35 a week ago. Darnold is likely staying and Mike Lafleur will hopefully know how to fix him which means we need alot of #### to fortify the rest of the team and so a trade down to get some extra picks is kind of enticing to be honest. I'm 40% we'll take Sewell and either he or Becton goes to RT and we have the foundation for one of the best lines in the league within the next year or so after Douglas finishes adding too it. Remaining 5
  12. Ridiculous some of these peeps as some love to bash the Jets even when we do things right. What's ironic is this might be the first time in forever or at least since probably when Parcells came here almost 25 years ago, that most of Jet Nation is not #####ing and moaning about a coach we hired. From recollection as we go back in time, after Belichek flipped off the Jets and Al Groh came on board, I was pretty tepid about it nothing earth shattering. When Herm came on board I had a "wait and see" attitude and Herm to be honest grew on me and probably when I think about it, is one of the be
  13. My .02 coppers. Love this hire. Saleh's enthusiasm will be contagious. He'll help fix the defense and he'll likely bring in Mike Lafleur to run the offense and try and fix Darnold if it's possible. Tho I wanted Daboll or Brady as my top choices with Brady being the "out of the box" pick, Saleh was a very close 3rd choice and I'm very very very OK with this hire. I think Douglas got it right Also thank the good lord we didn't hire Pederson. That would have been very disappointing as I didn't want a retread even someone who just won a SB a few years ago. But we don't have to worry
  14. Well I for one am feeling a hell of alot better after listening to the Chris Johnson presser this afternoon. Apparently he will be doing what myself and any sane Jet fan wanted to have happen which was he will step aside to the background and he will let Joe Douglas do all the shopping and he will make the coaching hire.....phewwwwww thank the good lord!!!.....lol Sure Johnson will be consulted with but he will not be doing the hire and that's a huge relief to me. This is beyond huge and some of y'all might say big f'n deal. Well it is a big f'n deal because this is not how the Jets
  15. I've heard interviews with Brady and he's an "old soul". Just listening too him, you'd never believe he was 31-32 as he comes across like he's 45 or so. He doesn't seem to me to be a guy who would be intimidated by the job and I do think he and Douglas would make a heck of good team. I'm not sure McVay had alot of experience either other than being around teams his whole life because he's a "McVay" and he seemed to acclimate himself quite nicely to the Rams job from the get go. I dunno, I know Brady is very young but I'd really like the Jets to do something very different than they've do
