Our readers’ and writers’ contributions to this site are a major reason why Gang Green Nation is the best Jets blog in the history of Jets blogs. No contribution, big or small, should go unnoticed. That’s why we’ll highlight some of the best comments and FanPosts on a weekly basis.
Without further ado, I bring to you, Gang Green Nation’s Highlight Reel for the past week:
On the Bell rumors:
Should the Jets get rid of Bell?
No. But they should get rid of the offensive line and Gase.
- Hugh G. Rections
Don’t see why they should trade Bell since
they’ll get very little in return and will lose money in the process. Might as well improve this o line and see what he does next year
On the Adams rumors:
The JETS and young players
I am sick of this organization drafting a few talented players then trading them, or losing them in FA. They did it with Demario Davis, John Abraham, Revis (in his prime) and only a few others. The brain trust signs these huge off season deals that do not pan out. Now this idiot team is considering trading Jamal Adams?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Jamal is a baller, one of the top 5 at his position. Players like that you KEEP! Lock him in and let him help recruit. Bell you should trade, but you keep Adams and treat him the way you are treating Darnold – who the jury is still out on. Right now, Darnold is a notch above average. Do not trade Jamal Adams – he is a Safety playing Edge Rusher, and the best player on your D. Build around him.
Not as valuable to this team as he would be someone else ready to roll. This team needs EV-ERY-THING. We are desperate for draft picks, and he is one of the only sources of that. Jamal is a stud. But he’s not worth his asking price, and we have no other assets.
I don’t see it
1. I don’t see how any pick is better than Jamal. You hope a top pick turns into a Jamal Adams. 9/10 don’t. Two average players don’t make one Jamal Adams. You don’t rob Peter to pay Paul. That just makes the team worse. 2. Again Jamal leads the defense in everything. He’s the best safety in the league. He covers, he’s a stud in run defense, and he gets pressure on the QB. There’s nothing he can’t do. Moving him makes the team worse in a big way. We just saw that against the Ravens and Dolphins. Our inability to contain Lamar and Ryan Fitzpatrick. That had been mitigated by Jamal for the majority of the year. Our inability to cover TEs without Jamal showed up against the Ravens. With Jamal in the lineup this team is arguably a top-10 defense in the league. without him it couldn’t stop a nosebleed. That’s a pretty big difference. 3. You want to make this team better. Put an offensive line in front of Sam and get some CBs. Trading Jamal doesn’t help you do that. It helps you get more lottery tickets. This team really isn’t as far off from a playoff spot as you’re making it out to be. This team is just a few pieces from putting it together. Mostly on the offensive end. Trading Jamal would set the team back God knows how many years.
On the Jets beat writers:
The Jets Beat this year
Costello. Been accused of having a nefarious love affair with Adam Gase. Vaccumano. Forever quoting multitudes of “NFL Sources” who have nothing to add. Mehta. Needs to be a verb. Everybody knows what it means. As in, “terrible article. He Manished it.” The Great Cimini. Actually not that annoying this year. Connor Hughes. Astoundingly stupid this year. Some of the things he has written make no sense at all.
On the quality of the O-line:
This Jets O-line
Is so bad that I think even Vernon Gholston could have a multiple sack game against them.
On the Phil Savage and Joe Douglas connection:
Since returning to the NFL
The Browns have not made the playoffs a single time, and the team has had just one winning season. That season was Joe Thomas’ rookie year. It was headlined by a pro-bowl appearance by career backup QB Derek Anderson. The team’s GM was Phil Savage. Savage has a prominent position as a senior advisor in the NY Jets front office. He is a close confidant of Joe Douglas. He hired Joe Douglas in Baltimore giving him his first NFL job.
Actually, the Browns DID make the playoffs
In 2002. They did not win it, but they were in it. They were 9-7 and a wild card team that had to go to Pittsburgh for the first round. They blew a 17-point lead and ended up losing by three points. Later on, in 2007 (Joe Thomas’ rookie year), they went 10-6, but missed the playoffs due to tiebreakers.
On the state of the Jets:
“Next year is year 1 of the rebuild”
A Jets annual tradition Merry Christmas
“I didn’t break any rules. I wasn’t a distraction until now.”-Bell
