    He'd damn well better be. I'm not watching this shit show for the #4 pick in the draft.

    Same difference football factory-wise, but I have always thought it was Wake. Memory's a bitch.

    That he and Greggggg Williams actually got on the plane back to NY on Sunday must mean that they are keeping the coaching staff around to get the number one pick.

    If Gase and Greggggg aren't shitcanned four seconds after the #1 pick is secured, then ownership is grossly incompetent.

    I do think overwhelming talent propped up Sanchez and Leinart. Marinovich was sabotaged by his own issues. Palmer was great until he got hurt.

    I don't think Darnold had nearly as much around him as Sanchez and Leinart did.

    Jets ownership is grossly incompetent, but I think even he can figure this one out.

    As one of the few public Jets fans on the board, I think Darnold is perfectly fine. The only thing I can blame him for is Gase being the coach because he fell for his sales pitch. But even then I could see Gase mentioning Peyton Manning a lot and I'm sure Darnold idolized Manning and...it is what it is...Of course I can blame shitty ownership for letting a 22-year-old pick their fucking head coach.

    All that being said, they should absolutely shop the No. 1 pick and see if there is someone willing to pull a Ditka and trade their entire 2021 Draft + some for the pick. The Jets can't go lower than a slot to pick Ja'Marr Chase though. I feel like the Cowboys might be 4-12 and this could work out.

    The downside with this is that the decision on Darnold's 5th-year option is coming up. So they are going to have to have a better QB contingency plan in place than Joe Flacco in case Darnold is still injury prone, etc.

    IIRC, Leinart also had some self-destructive tendencies. Didn't he gain a reputation as a party guy?

    He also had something of a noodle arm.
