Without further ado, I bring to you, Gang Green Nation’s Highlight Reel for the past week:
Jets Mock Offseason: the Free Fall of Wirfs
GenoTime7 puts together an offseason plan for the Jets.
On Rookie Offensive Linemen:
Ok, so Edoga sucked last year. No sugarcoating it. A 48.9 Grade. 6 Sacks allowed. A 94.3 Pass Block Efficiency. Not good. You know who else struggled at OT last year? All the other Rookies. 9 Rookies played significant snaps last year at OT and none of them were any good. Edoga’s performance was perfectly in line with expectations when taken in context. Furthermore, if we look at the class before, the 2018 class almost all saw significant improvement in their 2nd year (except McGlinchey who was a rare impressive rookie). Anyway, don’t write him off yet. Look, when you draft Rookies at OL, don’t expect miracles in Year 1. Don’t even expect decent play in Year 1. Its a long term play.
On Sam Darnold:
I don’t think Darnold is bad or having disappointing years
I think he played like a rookie in his rookie year. Then this year he had mono, multiple injuries, and an offensive line that couldn’t block my grandmother. Considering he’s one of the worst QBs in the NFL under pressure he was going to fail. Here’s my take. Put an average oline in front of Sam and he’ll look like the league average or better QB he is when he’s pressured around league average. Of the Jets don’t fix the Oline Sam and any other QB they bring is will face the same fate they’ve faced the last two years.
On the Superbowl matchup:
I think this is one of the most interesting matchups in years
Two top 5-10 offenses. A top 5 defense. The best QB in the sport. The most explosive offense in the sport (maybe ever). Two top 5 coaches. Gonna be a great game
On teams that passed on Mahomes:
Anything’s possible, but if the goal is to win a SB, there is a very real possibility it makes no difference what the answers are to all these questions: whether Darnold proves he is a franchise QB, if / when Gase is fired, who the Jets draft, etc. If KC can hold together some semblance of a defense, Mahomes will be very tough to beat, especially at Arrowhead. (Even Deshaun Watson and a 24-point lead wasn’t enough to keep the Texans from ultimately getting smoked.) Macc gives away 3 twos, not even expecting the guy he really wants will fall to him at #3. He gets “lucky” and Darnold falls to him, and 2 years later Jet fans are still wondering whether he might be a franchise QB. I like Jamal Adams but, meanwhile the all-world insane QB talent Macc passed on (in reality probably scoffed at, just like he did with Lamar Jackson) is HOF caliber and already the best, most exciting player in the league. Maccagnan probably set this franchise back 10 to 15+ plus years. Passing on Mahomes is one thing, but with the Chiefs trading up for him, now the Jets have to try to get past him every year just to make it to a SB.
Just think about Bears fans.
They took Mitchell ahead of him in the same draft.
And bid against themselves to trade up One spot to get Him.
On Jamal Adam’s campaigning for Dez Bryant:
Said it before. Will say it again.
Jamal Adams: Great safety; has no future as an NFL general manager
On Trumaine Johnson:
How to cut Tru that bum!!
