I mostly follow the Jets & Giants, but reading up on the Bears trade was pretty darn funny. If that QB works out they may still win the trade, but wow. The criticism and boos, just too funny.

Jets looked like they picked a good guy for their first pick (Jamal Adams), then just to give fans something to boo about, they pick a safety again (Marcus Maye) with their 2nd round pick. Now, perhaps Maye's a good player, but seems an odd choice.

I've always loved a good underdog story. Go Mets (2018). I know an underdog when I see one.

For us Jets fans it's all about the QB class of 2018.


Thought their draft was peculiar. Addressed SS/FS but went too long to add a CB in a deep draft for corners.

The OL class was mediocre so then drafting a TE (which was deep) made sense here.

But I'm worried about Mac's draft acumen/ability.


Just because he spent 2 decades in the scouting department doesn't mean he's a great evaluator of amateur talent..


Let's (please, pretty please) be a 3 win team that shows great upside with their defensive potential (keeping Sheldon was a good thing rather then selling low) and then cross our fingers for a franchise QB.


Please. Pretty please.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?
