    As a dying jets fan, I’ve been revived. The last time a new jets head coach hire got my heart beating again was in January 2019 when Adam Gase said he would make the jets a winning team. I was bamboozled back then by him. I don’t know what to think anymore. (Crying)

    Took him a couple years to get the defense going in SF. Fans were ready to throw him out. So, you're going to have to be patient Jets' fans.

    If the Jets don't draft a QB in this draft class, they deserve everything coming to them. Even if Darnold has an up year and shows promise, the Jets will then have to decide if they want to hand him that big ol' monster contract. And if they do, they are flirting with a Jared Goff type situation and will potentially handicap themselves for years. So, the best thing they could do is draft a QB, play Darnold if he shows more in training camp, and if Darnold has a good year then trade him off and let someone else pay him just like the Chiefs did with Alex Smith. Both Fields and Wilson are better prospects than Darnold was when he was drafted, so chances are fairly good that they will have their guy plus some draft capital from the trade to load up some more.

    T BMonth ago

    Great Video! If this was a Joe Douglas hire then I am encouraged. As a 49ers fan, his defense was always good enough to win if we had a healthy Jimmy G. LaFleur and Sam Darnold can work, you have weapons and a good o-line and the GM knows how to get good players in the draft. Keep the QB healthy and that defense with a Shanahan offence is going to cook with gas. I'm a 49ers fan but my new AFC team is the Jets. Go J E T S.

  34. jeremie manninen

    jeremie manninenMonth ago

    I don't think it really matters with the Jets who you put as Coach you could turn the clock back and go to the Lombardi Era and have Vince himself as the Coach and the Jets would still suck due to the Front Office/Ownership since they seem to not know how to properly evaluate talent

    49er fan here...I saw Saleh and his #1 rank defense get destroyed in the Super Bowl and in most games 2020 their defense gave up more points in the second half than the first...my point being he does not make good adjustments during the game.

    As a Niner fan, I'm a little pissed to lose him. He started slow, and I was ready to fire him after his first season. Then he did something haven't seen in years, not since Don Shula. Saleh. changed, he adapted. He didn't steer the titanic into the iceberg...Saleh can adapt....So be patient, and this could be good.

    Great, but he just brushed over Al Groh. Groh actually went 9-7 and looked like a good coach but then left the Jets high and dry for Virginia. It took the Johnson brothers 21 years ro figure out that they know nothing about football and to let the GM do their job.

    Lou Holtz also had a turn at coaching the Jets. But that requires going all the way back to 1976.

    Darnold needs a bruising running back who can get 1500 yards a season. All 3 Jet receivers are average or worse. Perriman sucks big time. Jamison Crowder is 5 9'' but he cannot stretch the field. Mims has 4.39 speed so he cannot get separation. Jets have some good players in Becton, Quinen Williams and that's it. Cornerbacks really suck. Cannot compare to the tandem of Cromartie and Revis.

    "You win with people" Woody Hayes. Jets need players who can produce. Period. Is Sam the man? Just looking at his body of work over the three years with the Jets, you would say no. But what about giving him an offensive line in front of him and some great receivers? Jets are going to give Sam another shot, I'd be willing to predict. Let's see what happens.

    As a Niners fan, Saleh will install a good defense, also him and Shanahan preached a team first attitude. No matter tough years, injuries, or Jimmy G rumors you never heard the locker room fighting. He's a real man Jets fans.

    Does this mean Sam Darnold is out of NY? Going to be interesting now to see what they do with the number two pick. Assuming Lawrence is taken by jags, are the other Qbs in the draft better than Sam? Considering that darnold player for a terrible team and a terrible coach all this time ?? Interesting scenario, they can take a QB and trade away darnold, keep darnold and draft a different position player, or even trade back to get more picks

    Although Saleh has a lot of gravity fact. But he isn't bringing any Niners with him to NY except for Sherman and maybe Hyder Jr! Niners are gonna dig in and stay pat with Warner, Bosa & Verrett! 💯
