  1. The Mets have traded for Chris Bassit (Former A) Adam Oiler and JT Ginn to Oakland
  2. Yes. Great way to put it. New money and causing too much of a ruckus among that exclusive club that they have. Plus he's new competition and they know he actually cares about winning unlike Wilpon who they all knew was a weakling running a clownshow with his scuzzy son. But to them at least the Wilpons were predictable in their incompetence. Cohen is still a wild card I feel they'll probably make sure the ball is nice and juiced this year once again, and instead of promoting the nuance and game within a game aspect of baseball...they'll continue to try to make it a 15-12 home run heavy mash fest. Base stealing, hit and run, good defensive...good fundamentals, situational hitting and awareness, that's all dying. They want guys hitting 600 foot home runs and posing like Hulk Hogan circa 1985 They're after the millennials, and they have to get down on their level to sell this game.
  3. And just like that...a bolt out of the blue, the lockout is over and we will have baseball in 2022! canceling the season (or missing significant time) would've been catastrophic for the sport especially where it stands within the fabric of America.
  4. And we kick things off with a bombshell Russell Wilson to Denver What's Jamal Adams thinking?
  5. It just feels strange, that the Cincinnati Bengals (and good for them, nothing against them) have reached the Super Bowl before I even got a chance to see the Jets get to one. Even the Bengals get their day in the sun before us. I can see them putting a scare into LA, but I think the Rams take this 27-16
  6. What an absolute gut punch for Buffalo. They had their ticket punched for Super Bowl #5...ripped away. KC who for so many years endured playoff gut punch after playoff gut punch...are now the ones delivering the gut punches This is gonna be a tough one for Buffalo to recover from. 13 seconds to go, Josh Allen heroically on the road gives them the lead and they give up two chunk plays and a tying field goal.
  7. The only thing that surprised me about that Rams/Bucs Hollywood production was how it ended. I me you just see this stuff and you can literally predict the insane miracles and breaks and Rams gaffes that were going to transpire. This is getting just too damn bizarre. I'm shocked the Bucs didn't pull it off. The Rams were choking at a level I have never seen before
  8. Bit of an old article, but this just keeps happening. Can't even put into words how bad this teams luck is. It's hard to grow, develop and take any steps forward when this bizarre epidemic won't end. I do recall the 49ers coming in a few years ago and stating how bad the Metlife turf is...so there could be something to that. https://thejetpress.com/posts/ny-jets-injured-team-nfl-2022 It seems like every year the NY Jets are hit with an unprecedented string of injuries. Sure, every NFL team is forced to deal with injuries, but many Jets fans certainly believe that their team is hit harder than most. And they would be right. The Jets have had an almost unparalleled string of injury luck over the last three seasons. Once again, they rank dead-last in the NFL when it comes to being healthy. Using a statistic called "Banged Up Score" or B.U.S. — a statistic that calculates how injuries impact overall team and player performance — the Jets are the most injured team in the entire NFL.
  9. Also just went to show how badly we need offensive line help. Bit late for this but why the hell would you start a guy against a team that's at home in a hostile environment, something to play for and can absolutely pin their ears back and are going out there to crush your QB. It's not like the Jets had any incentive to play spoiler either. The Jets were down 74 receivers this game and were left with guys off the street it seemed. Zach isn't going to grow, learn, or make any kind of strides in bleak, hopeless situation like this. He got sacked like 8-9 times. They really should've just thrown Flacco in there. There's nothing to gain from a game such as this for Wilson
  10. Little late to comment on this but while I didn't see them making a Super Bowl this year...they had stretches where they were clicking on all cylinders and Mac Jones seemed very ahead of schedule. You had the entire NFL looking at Belichick and New England and wondering..."Oh sh!t, here we go again". That brilliantly coached and executed 14-10 win vs Buffalo had everyone bowing to them. But they came apart in the aftermath. That game where the Colts shredded them on the ground they never really regained their swagger from it. Overall for New England this year the good far outnumbered the bad. They are well positioned to make a run here within the next 2-3 years. Will Jones take that step forward and become a top 10 QB? A lot hinges on that, as well as what Miami and Buffalo do. But they absolutely have to go out there and get Jones some elite playmakers at the receiver position. It's not gonna happen with Meyers-Bourne-Agholor as your top 3. All three are decent but they're not scaring anybody going into a tough playoff game on the road
  11. To me Keiths number retirement is more a lifetime service # retirement rather than an acknowledgement of just his playing career. He's been a beloved Mets broadcaster for a while now (and part of maybe the best booth in baseball). As a player, he had a nice run with the Mets, but really it was only 7 seasons or so (with three of them being top 10 in MVP voting) so I'm really looking at this as an honor due to his career service to the Mets in several capacities. If it was just playing days...then I'm very stingy with number retirements (I would not have done Stengels who I feel every generation of Mets fans view with indifference and maybe some curiosity)
  12. Saleh and LaFleur are not it. I can understand going for it (I would've kicked a FG) but to call that play is just stupidity beyond comprehension. It's Gregg Williams level from last year. How do you call a sneak on 4th and 2? I've never seen something like that. They may get better next year but I don't think Saleh will be the guy to finally bring them to the promised...and we will certainly be needing a new OC. Can't make those kinds of calls. Just can't Ulbrich too. He's braindead and needs to be gone at seasons end
  13. I know it's the sh!tbag Jaguars but any kind of win is a step forward building block for this franchise. Probably should have put up more points but made some hyper aggressive playcalls, gambles instead of trying to take the points. And I understand why with the situation we were in...still it would've sucked if leaving points on the board cost us against Jax. I just want to get that feeling of winning at 1 Jets Drive. At least we've doubled our win total from last year Also our lineman make better plays on the football than our receivers do And that Wilson long touchdown scramble reminded me a lot of Darnolds. Carter (who is going to be part of the solution if we ever turn it around) is a very solid tough player and had himself a good game along with Tevin Coleman.
  14. I'm glad they came to their senses and went with the established, veteran guy. He's a known, proven commodity, he's turned teams around, he's managed in NY and can deal with the stresses and pressure (and media). He is a bit old but 65 today isn't what it was 30 or 40 years ago. He still has the fire to go out and win a World Series. Finally we have a guy who won't make repeated bonehead decisions. We can actually be a team that outmanages others during a game. Buck is an all around good baseball man and I'm glad he's here.
  15. Miami adjusted and the Jets absolutely looked like they stopped competing and didn't give an effort in the 2nd half. When this defense looks bad it looks historically unfathomably bad Combine the lack of talent already with the incredible rash of injuries and this is what you get. How they even have 3 wins is beyond me with the luck this team has. Wilson had a nice 1st half but had no chance at all in the 2nd. I'm still leaning to this guy not working out. The Jets outright did not possess the ball in the 2nd half it seemed. What happened in the 3rd an 4th q's is one of those instances where you look at the staff and wonder if they're the guys who can ever get it turn around. I just don't know
  16. ah yes of course the refs. Always good for an assist to our opposition weekly.
  17. What an utter disgrace of a game so far. Jets D is holding them in there but Wilson looks like utter trash (missing weapons but also missing some makeable throws). He just doesnt look like the guy. For all his studying and work ethic...the results by and large are not there. Eventually the Jets will do something stupid to give the game away but for now they're hanging in at 3-3
  18. I would've never thought that. If you asked me I would've guessed...40pts. 45 tops? 61 is pretty damn good. Strange and it feels like he'd gone through some invisible stretches.
  19. It was heartening to see how few people in the stands seemed to have this jersey. Kind of reminded me of the Isles when they tried that revolting black Brooklyn 3rd jersey nonsense. Fans hated it and Howie Rose commented they would groan and boo when the Isles hit the ice wearing it
  20. Can they make a god damn extra point good lord. You're not supposed to just sign someone worse than Ammendola just because he's not Ammendola
  21. Baez strikes me as a guy who's right at the tipping point age wise (29). His ilk (who are the ultimate free swingers, never walked more than 30 times a year, no plate discipline) when they decline the decline is swift and it's ugly. And it's not like he's a 40-50 HR guy...he's a 25-30 home run guy. Those K totals keep creeping up. 184 in 547 pa's is terrifying. A K per 2.97 pa's.
  22. I'm fine with that. He was nothing but a mercenary for the Nationals too who tried year after year to buy a World Series until they finally did in 2019 after having a top 5 or top 10 payrolls (and also sinking tons of $ into their minor league scouting and systems) for at least 5 or 6 consecutive years.
  23. Unreal. I would've bet anything that Scherzer like others was just flirting with the Mets and using them to drive the price up elsewhere...or would gladly leave millions on the table to go sign elsewhere and just avoid the Mets. Seems like Cohen almost sort of lashed out with his money after being humiliated during the offseason GM search. This kind of offer...how can Scherzer possibly say no?
