  1. DIaz I just don't trust. Yea it was a 3 run lead over the Pirates but he's turned those into adventures before. He closed that one out. Good. Mets stop the losing streak before it turned into something concerning with a tidy 5-2 win Today he comes in the 8th and melts down. Gives up what looked like the game winning hit. It took a good play by Bader to just get out of the inning. Could've been a whole lot worse for Edwin. Mets rally and he closes it out. Disaster averted (for now). More often than not though the Mets are not going to be able to bail him out. I don't know what happened but after that WBC injury he is just not the same pitcher he was a few years ago that looked like he figured it out after looking like he didn't have what it takes to pitch in New York. I don't know if the sticky stuff has anything to do with it, I mean were they checking for it then when he had his big year? If the Mets miss out on a Wild Card spot this year it will likely be because of the bullpen and Diaz. The offense is a bit cold now but overall is above average and will have those days when it slugs out 8 or more runs and allows us to absorb garbage pen performance. But some days it won't...like that 5-0 lead they had on Washington from a few days ago. You CANNOT let that one slip away. The starting staff has been passable and will only get better with the return of Senga.
  2. Of course. No hit by the Braves who will rub it in our face and laugh and we'll do nothing. Just go down like the gutless pukes they are. And get swept that's a given
  3. Another guy that I think of and worry about when looking at Alonso's age and trajectory is Chris Davis. He hit 30 and absolutely cratered I'm totally torn as to what to do with him. Have to see where he is and where this team is once we get to the trade deadline. If he ends up having a .200 30hr 80rbi year...that's not a very good sign and not something that I am inclined to believe would be just a bump in the road before he picks up and hits 40+ with 110+ rbi's again in his 30s
  4. Thrilled about Tyron Smith. Didn't think they would be a realistic landing spot for him but they got it done. The O line has been significantly retooled. It was a must for Douglas to address I hope we have better injury luck than the past few seasons...we're kinda due for that. Smith is hurt every year and hasn't played more than 13 games since 2015. He will be hurt again this year and we have to prepare for that. The question is how badly and for how long. If the Jets get 12 or 13 quality starts from Tyron Smith I feel it will be worth it I feel like with the teams that have come into the league, and the injuries...finding competent linemen is becoming more and. more difficult so you see a lot of older guys hanging around and hanging around longer than they normally would. Recently look at guys like Jason Peters (41) Whitworth (40). Giants brought Justin Pugh back last year. Trent Williams at 35. Lane Johnson and Kelce's bro who just retired were both well into their 30s but still valued guys
  5. Finally the Jets land a competent backup QB in Tyrod Taylor. He has his limitations but he's a veteran who you can trust, very well liked by his teammates, mobile, and is a lot smarter/careful with the ball in terms of decision making. He does not throw many INT's. Exactly the backup you want behind Rodgers
  6. Giants released JD Davis...he was pretty good for them. Nothing spectacular but what an ugly trade that was. Wonder if the Mets would be up for a reunion. He can play 3B, 1B, outfield. Has some power and has always been a good OBP guy
  7. If Mac Jones (who has had about 1000x more competence at the position than Zach Wilson) went for that, then Wilson almost seems absolutely worthless. One is a trade and the other would be a signing but if that's the value of Mac Jones then Wilson must be looked at as a fringe practice squad QB/long term project by the rest of the league. Jones can craft a long career as a back up and sometimes decent starter when called upon. I don't think Zach could even be trusted to do that
  8. Knew it was coming but it still stings (kind of feels like losing Hugh Douglas when he went to Philly and played pretty damn well) when Huff was called upon to get to the QB he did. Outstanding player and a tough loss for our D. Eagles are an upper echelon franchise, ended last season on a very sour note and wasted no time retooling.
  9. All I think about when I see games like this is...could we have maybe had Brissett here as a backup? Maybe they sneak into the playoffs and Rodgers is starting the Wild Card game. Douglas punting the entire season after 4 plays, that's the kind of stuff that's dangerous enough to blow up a locker room. There are guys here that desperately want to win. They wouldnt have beaten Houston and Washington if they all checked out. Douglas needs to answer to the players for this, because there are guys who were anticipating being on a team that wanted to compete and the GM folded up shop week 1.
  10. I thought i heard an interesting quote by Aaron Rodgers He said something like "I can see myself staying(or sticking around) here after I'm done playing" And he's always down on the sidelines with his headset. Next year I dont care what the official titles say...our Offensive Coordinator will be Aaron Rodgers. Is thinking of taking Saleh's job in 2025 or 2026. Trying to find the exact quote but I know I heard him mention something about "sticking around here after I'm no longer playing"
  11. Honest to God if they lost that game to Washington after being up 27-7 and about to make it either 30-7 or 34-7, only to have an ill timed INT turn the tide and have the dam break...I almost wonder if Woody would reconsider his Douglas/Saleh are safe stance. Wasn't Mangini told he was safe too in 2008? I know the players were surprised when he was fired. Understand this effects draft position but we can't be trusted to get it right at 2, 5, or 12 anyway. Would be nice if the Jets can win their next 2 and go into the offseason at 8-9. I'm kind of sick of the constant draft posturing. Yea it can matter for generational talents but usually a good team will find players in every round and all over the board. Eventually you just have to just win. We all suspected Douglas and Saleh would return and get their year with Rodgers. I personally don't want either, but I'm more down on Douglas with his poor drafts, oline that is still under construction years later, Zach bust pick, no competent backup this year. With a real backup I know we'd be something like 8-7 right now. But Douglas wasn't having it. He pulled the plug on a season the players wanted a chance to win in. Saleh at least has proven he can coach a defense. There's a lot of issues with him as well but if you pair him with a competent OC and a QB that's at least average, he could do ok. We have seen his defense win some games
  12. ,Jets team has quit on the season. After the Raiders debacle it became clear what was going to unfold. Douglas basically checked out gave up after Rodgers got hurt and refused to do anything to give them a chance. When your GM shows no fight and stops competing then soon the players will too. Having Boyle and Wilson starting games for you is an insult to the defense which for a while was working miracles (as well as the special teams) but that couldnt last forever. Now the team has collectively quit and I don't know if I could really blame them with the way management threw in the towel after Rodgers injury. Douglas could've so easily avoided this. When it's so glaring that no effort is being made to win, even when the team got to 4-3, when it showed it deserved some kind of support...and it gets nothing...well of course it's going to fall apart. It's insulting to the Jets D to have Wilson start 9(!!!) games this year with Boyle getting a start himself. How long were they supposed to put up with the worst QB in football? 10 games of Wilson/Boyle with no attempt to remedy the situation is criminal
  13. Also time to pull the plug on Rodgers and any fairytale comeback nonsense. The team will soon be 4-7 there's no sense in getting him back for meaningless football
  14. And that's the season. At 4-5 with the AFC as strong as it is the Jets are buried and have no shot. All because Joe Douglas decided to sabotage a defense and st's units that are very damn good
  15. They absolutely torpedoed what could've been a very good, live, in the mix team even without Rodgers that would've been in the playoffs this year with a chance to beat anyone. But no...plod on with Zach Wilson and waste an incredible defensive season as you watch your hopeless bust embarrass himself and drag the team down
