NFL (since 2016)
Free agency started last night and was pretty crazy some huge money being spent.

Osweiler getting £18m a year for the Texans, leaving the Broncos without a QB,

Giants have spent a fortune on good but not great players, Oliver Vernon has more guaranteed money than JJ Watt.

lots more deals but cant be bothered to list them all.

Yep, Chiefs are playing lights out.

Assuming they stay healthy they are gonna be tough to beat.

.....and there's nothing wrong with young coaches (mcvey, shanny jr, lafleur, flores) but gase is unhinged. that was clear in his first press conference

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I take more interest than ever now, and gase should have been sacked at the end of last season. the bloke is fucking clueless and doesn't know how to use players. your only potent weapon at the weekend, herndon, got just three catches. nothing worse than an owner using a coach as a vanity project. just admit you got it wrong and make the change

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Somebody who was cheap, would be grateful for the job, wouldn't say boo to a goose and who has extraodinary stare-y eyes!

In all honest, IH, I really don't know what they (think they) saw in Gase. It was a ridiculously poor appointment. He bombed in that final season in Miami and he has carried on bombing since he arrived. The flurry of wins we had at the end of last season (when the season was effectively already over) flattered his record and probably kept him in the job.

But he is utterly useless on every level. He's a "yes man", grateful for the and not prepared to face-up to the owners over the lack of investment and the constant player/contract churn etc.

When Bowles finally went, Mike McCarthy actively sought the HC job in New York. He was exactly what we neeed - a gnarly old fucker of a HC who knows his way around the NFL and would bring that bruising NFC North approach to the AFC East.

But McCarthy knows his own mind (he will no doubt fall out with Jones in Dallas at some point) and that scared the living bejesus out of our owners and GM.

The Jets have generally thrived (rare periods) when they've had experienced head coaches - it just seems to be how best to handle the media pressure and market in New York. Bill Parcells, Weeb Ewbank (who won our only superbowl back in the 60s) - best coaches we've had and they had already won titles elsewhere.

Whenever we've picked younger/inexperienced head coaches, like Gase, they have tended to be useless (like Gase), pciked too soon (like Pete Carroll way back in the 1990s) or the kind of coaches who do OK but fall a little short (Rex Ryan, Herm Edwards etc).

I don't know how McCarthy will do at the Cowgirls, but I'd have bitten your arm off for him last year when he was asking to be appointed at the Jets.

How the hell did Gase interview better than McCarthy?

Re: NFL (since 2016)
South, would be interested to hear your perspective on the Gase hire - What did the Jets see during the Miami era that suggested he would be a good hire?

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I wouldn't mind, he's also a humourless twonk.

You'd think with a name like that he'd be a laugh or even a little self-deprecating. But no.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Def - it's all happening again at the Jets, isn't it?!

We've been used to this shite for decades now. Absolutely hopeless leadership inside that franchise - especially now that the (superb) team captain, Adams, saw sense and got the hell out of there over the summer.

Too many similarities with West Ham: maybe that's why we're drawn to them!

Zeb. It's a long story trying to expain the clusterfuck that is the Jets' long-term ownership, GM situation (present guy exempt because he's still finding his feet), head coaching situation and roster.

But if I could sum it up with one fact, it would be this:

The Jets' owner, Woody Johnson, is currently Donald Trump's ambassador to the UK.

To be honest, while that's not got little to do with American football, it says everything you need to know about the family which runs the Jets. And, as we all know from the grim reality of West Ham, it comes from the top down.

Now that the non-Skins Skins from Skinland, and the Borwns, have begun to get their act into gear on the admin/board side of their granchises, the Jets have a good argument for being the worst-run franchise in the NFL. Again!

Such a shame, because Sam Darnold's raw talent at QB is there for all to see. But shite owner = shite GMs = shite HC = shite OC = shite QB coach = no chance of Darnold developing his potential any time soon.

Think Sullivan - see Johnson.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Dalvin Cook is still a fantasy beast though Cough.
The Jets are a complete mess, I have not followed them closely enough to know why although it appears to be a recruitment clusterfuck in just about every department if the defence is porous and the offence can't score. The Falcons are a mess but at least Matt Ryan and their receiving corps can still rack up the TDs at will.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
not sure if rivera's distracted with his treatment but two games running now he hasn't used time outs in the last quarter. not that it mattered much, but he could at least appear to be trying to the end. haskins continues to look cumbersome & indecisive, but he probably deserves a couple more games. worryingly his down the field vision looks poor and I'm not sure how much that can improve in the short term. it may be harsh but ron may be forced in to a change if performances don't improve

Re: NFL (since 2016)
SBBB - On the BBC NFL show last week they said the Jets were by far the worst team in the NFL.
Pretty sure Mark Chapman said his granny could score against us!

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Might have a cheeky bet on the Jets to go 0-16 or 1-15 this season.

Worst roster of any side in the NFL - by a street mile. Absolutely shite squad picked by absolutely shite head coach, (past) GMs, and owners. It feels very much like West Ham!

If I were Darnold, who is a talented kid (he's in his third year, but he joined us a year earlier than most QBs enter the league), then I would be seeking to move away from the toxic Jets unless they back him with some talent, a decent head coach (Gase is beyond a joke) and a decent quarterbacks coach.

Darnold, for all of his obvious talent, has not progressed at all in the past 12 months. Which, when you're still learning, does not bode well. He's not learning because he has absolutely nobody around him to team him well.

He will sink, with the Jets, if he stays - unless Gase is sacked and the replacements include a first-class offensive mind (and one used to coaching QBs).

In the meantime, we're royally fucked for yet another year. But, as with West Ham, I can't see anything fundamental changing at the Jets until the ownership either changes - or they swallow their pride and give a proper head coach and GM the power and assets with which to build something solid.

Rudderless, gutless, clueless franchise at the moment. It all feels like the Rich Kotite-era again!

Definitely get your money on Gase to be the first HC out the door this season. Even he is running out of excuses (and he has many excuses) - at some point he simply has to accept that he is not a head coach.

The cheap option (which will no doubt be the one chosen by our cheapskate owners) will be to appoint DC Gregg Williams as HC whenever Gase goes. That wouldn't be so bad as an interim appointment.

Zero confidence that any of this will happen when it should: tomorrow!

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Grumps, we beat two bad teams with our back ups. So two good wins on the road.
Philly then Miami up next, got a good chance if being 4-1, we have 3 weeks to get healthy, Jimmy G, Kittle, Mostert, Deebo and Sherman should all be back for the Rams game.

Let's hope we don't get any more significant injuries we've already had more than our fair share.

Once healthy we will still be the best in the west...Difference is our offense will be what wins us games this year as opposed to our dominant D.
