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:
Kendrick Hills 10307 gives advice for a successful season.
On Nick Mangold:
For sure man!
Even though they took him out to dinner when he got back. I wasn’t a fan of how they cut him and get if he’s still pissed about it. The fact though he is doing this when he very well could bash the Jets for “handling” this wrong. Should tell you about the whole Adams situation. Anyway loved what Mangold did on the field for the Jets but also loved what he did when messing with players during interviews. He’s the type of player any team should want to keep in the franchise for a very long time.
On Mike Maccagnan:
People don’t give Maccagnan enough credit
Not only was a he a bad drafter, despite having high picks, he was a terrible free agent signer, and terrible at contract negotiations.He was equally bad all around.Thats not easy to do, usually someone must have at least one strength to get a job.But Macc sucked all around.
On Joe Douglas’ recent moves:
I do like the idea of purging these bad contracts and JD has done a good job with that
He’s cut Roberts, Tru J, Winters, and Enunwa. Next year, we’re able to get out of the Bell, Henry Anderson, Crowder contracts. After that, our only bad contract remaining should be Mosley. JD even had the foresight to front load Fant’s contract to give us an easy out. Macc was like a kid in a candy store when it came to signing FAs. Everything JD has done seems to be calculated. He clearly has a good grasp on team needs. Not to mention he got a haul in the Adams trade. There’s a lot to like. I am very excited for this team’s future under him. With all this cap, I am very excited to see what he does next offseason.
On whether or not the Jets should make a big splash before the season:
You rebuild during a rebuild
Neither Clowney nor Yannick are going to make us a Super Bowl contender this year, so why waste a ton of cap space (and picks for Yannick) on a one-year deal? We should be hoarding cap space and picks like goddamn Smaug. While most teams are in cap hell next year, we should use the depressed market to fill holes with good players at good prices, or see if we can use our cap space to acquire more draft picks in exchange for taking players to help teams get under the cap. Rebuilding takes patience and sober evaluation of current status. We’re not ready yet, so what’s the point of making win-now moves that take away future assets?
On Adam Gase:
Adam Gase is absolutely a liability on this team.
No team is too talented to be undone by poor coaching. And the Jets aren’t anywhere close to the level of talent where they can afford to be coached to anything less than perfection.
I mean not a fan of him at all. However what about him having a poor roster and when they team was 1-7? Things could of gotten a lot worse yet the finished 7-9.
He inherited a bad roster and did a poor job with it offensively. Gregg Williams inherited a bad roster and did OK with it defensively. Same for special teams.
On Gase’s comments about limiting Bell’s carries:
This just really extra personifies how clueless Gase is.
This is very possibly going to be a shortened season that starts with a gauntlet of difficult games and is very unlikely to end in a playoff birth. Therefore we are going to save our best offensive player, the only player on the roster who has ever sniffed star status, for the stretch run. I realize this is just offseason coach speak but it’s just fun to hate on Gase.
We got two possibilities here:
1) Bell plays well. In which case it will be, “Bell Rules” 2) Bell doesn’t play well. In which case it will be, “Gase Sucks.”
On joining GGN:
Longtime lurker finally decided to make an account and join in on all the great discussions on this site. GGN has become apart of my daily routine especially these past six months with everything that’s been going on. Excited to join the GGN family and look forward to conversing with you fine gents who also bleed green.
P.S. FIRE GASE!!!
At the thought of signing Clowney for 15 mil a year:
At that price:
On the idea of saving Bell for a playoff run:
Is Le’Veon Bell still a top 5 Running Back in this league?
