On the news of Sam Darnold’s mono:

Season over by week 2 has to be some sort of record


On why the Jets can’t trade for Jalen Ramsey:

Jalen Ramsey and Lack of Assets

So the Jets really don’t have the assets to trade for Ramsey. As I have warned for months, his team so so poorly constructed that we literally have 3 assets, full stop. Those are Sam, Jamal, and our 1st rd pick (which is EXTRA valuable because it will be top 5). Mosley is good but his contract is not tradable, and neither Leo nor Robby will yield more than a 2/3 rd pick. This team needs to protect Sam at all costs. So while the entire OL actually needs to be replaced, at MINIMUM we need a starting C and LT. That’s just to keep Sam alive. THEN we need an elite edge, CB, WR1, and good CB2, WR2 JUST to consider contending. Because of this, the Jets’ 1st rd pick is absolutely indispensable and non-negotiable. It will be top 5 at least, and MUST be used to trade back to acquire more picks. The price for Ramsey STARTS at a 1st, but it’s a 1st plus. If you want to start trading everyone, including Jamal, for whatever you can get, fine. Do it. But under no circumstances can you trade our 1st this year and some for one player. We have no idea when we’ll pick this high again, and the opportunity must not be squandered.


On the Bell signing:

Bell on that 3rd and 11 play.

Got to say that play should of resulted in like -8 yards making it 4th and 19. Not only did Bell get back those extra 8 yards though he added on an additional 8 yards making it 4th and 3rd. At this point no one should be upset with that signing considering the dude plays with heart and is the only good thing on this offense.


On being a Jets fan:

Last night my daughter turned to me and said

Why do you do this to yourself dad?
I had no answer.


On the Jets performance:

I watched the game last night but didn’t comment here

But my goodness, how did this O-line get this bad? Last year, they were (on an eye test at least) awful in the run game, but held up to at least an average level in pass pro. This year, they couldn’t block your grandma if she was rushing the QB with a walking frame. That has to be coaching. It just has to be. I mean the guys on the left of the line have all played at a high level at various points in their career. Khalil, Osemele, and Beachum aren’t just bums who suddenly became bad. Winters and Shell aren’t the ones getting pummelled in the pass game – it’s nearly all the three guys to their left. Leo Williams is a flat out bust. No other way to put it. At least Mo Wilkerson gave us a few years, and waited for his big contract, before playing like this. On the upside – too early to judge after one performance, but that Hairston kid looks like a potential find. And Bell is a model pro. Dude was out their busting his ass with nothing to gain in the late fourth, just setting an example. My anti-game ball goes to Gase. Because that O-line can be a lot better than it’s looking right now, which suggests a fundamental weakness in the coaching/scheme.


On future contract discussions with Leonard Williams:

Can’t wait to explain to Leo that he need not worry about his next contract being so low because there are actually tons of hidden dollars in there that don’t show up on the actual document.


On the Outlook for the rest of the season:

What a bummer

This is probably the earliest I’ve ever resigned myself to a losing season, and I’m usually a glass half-full guy.


On whether or not Gase deserves sympathy:

Rex Ryan coached a team to 8 wins

With Geno Smith as his QB, Jeremy Kerley and David Nelson as two of his leading receivers, Dee Milliner as his top CB, Nick Folk as his kicker and not a single player with 1,000 yards from scrimmage. Adam Gase will get no sympathy – and no patience – from me.


On the QB matchup next week:

Uhm I don’t want to make too much of this but did you know that next week the jets will be starting the 199th pick of the draft against some other qb who was drafted 199th? Sounds like a fair matchup to me.


On the Jets offensive performance:

The offense literally went backwards for 3 quarters.

Literally. Not stalled. Didn’t sputter. Went. Backwards.
