Interesting.

 

This would match up with the reports (published before Gase was hired in NY) that Gase was 100% all in on the Browns job, and only began considering the NYJ once it was made clear the Cleveland wasn’t hiring him.

I'm enjoying to pile-on as well.  However in all honesty, up until the last week before the draft, Darnold was assumed to be the #1 overall pick, with the others varying all over the top 10-15 pics.  See the link below where 5 of 6 draft prognosticators including Mayock have Darnold going to the Browns 3 weeks before the draft.  This is consistent with Gase' explanation of why he didn't bother working out Darnold separately.

Regardless, I agree with the assessment that the NY media will this guy alive.

It does make sense but was refuted by the people in Miami. If that was the case he should have been quoted saying that in the article when he had the chance. That said, the Bills also didn’t work out Darnold,  until about a week before the draft because they also thought he was going #1 but then learned it might not happen and flew out to LA  ... I assume all the teams learned that intel at the same time

I don't know about that.

It was real fun to watch Tyrod run around like a chicken with his head chopped off.

 

Even more fun when he did it for the Browns ;)

 

 

....and NO TRESPASSING signs 7 yards downfield for the WR gang.....

I don’t have anything nice to say about Gase, but this piece is a pure hatchet job. Mehta should be ashamed. 

Mehta is feeling pretty powerful after he took down Marrone.  I wonder who he will hire after he and his frenzied mob run Gase out of town.  Hopefully someone just as ineffective.

Adam, welcome to the spotlight of the New York media.

 

This will end well...

The “I can do anything I want” statement of Gase sums up his character and why he will fail again if he doesn’t change- which he probably wont.

I seem to recall that there were rumors prior to the draft that Cleveland also liked Mayfield and Allen over Darnold as well. I still believe that all three will have solid careers. And I also would like to say that while the Jets front office were waiting on Bell to agree to terms Beane was going out and signing OL help and some good WR's in Brown and Beasley. Bell is a good player to be sure but in the long run Singletary may prove to be the better choice at RB. If this season goes down the tubes for the Jets I wouldn't be surprised to see the Jets clean house once again.

Who gives a ****? He wasn't the coach last year and Baker wasn't falling past first...jets tabloids having fun with their turmoil is cool I guess

During most of the pre-draft process, it was not believed mayfield would go #1. The teams evaluating the QBs looked at all of the top 4 as top 10 prospects. Darnold was, for awhile, believed to be destined to the Browns but Allen was also discussed there. Mayfield didn’t emerge as their guy until about 48 hours before the draft.

This reminds me of a situation I saw recently with regard to some guy they call AB who played for the Raiders.......

 

Like watching a trainwreck unfold!!!!

Yeah, but it also says that Miami had no intention of trading up.  So Darnold would have to drop to them at 11, which was beyond unlikely

eh, i maybe believe the Mayfield part but not sure about Allen; if he was referring to pure talent I'd believe that but i'm not sure even he missed that Darnold was the most ready straight away and had the longer runway.  (for the record i think Allen will get there)

 

someone is just trying to fuel the fire, gosh, i though our local media coverage was prickly...

 

Darnold was the right pick where he was taken.

Allen was and is the better prospect.

Actually the talk was Mayfield or Allen.

Gase is such a baby, Darnold is a good QB. I’d liken him to a Tony Romo if developed properly. The Jets hired a joker to run their team.

I ranked them Allen, Rosen, Darnold, Mayfield, and Jackson.  At this point I'm not sure I would reorder them. 

I still think Rosen has a chance to prove himself. Unbelievably he is now on the two worst rosters in the NFL in a row.

I still am not sold on Mayfield.  He started well last year then tailed off.  I always thought Jackson was a better passer than most of the media and this board thought.  But his college completion % and low Wonderlic put him last on my list. 

As for Darnold - watch any game where he was rushed in the pocket and the outcome was not good.  Maybe that is true of most college QBs.  Right now I don't think he will be anywhere close to Carson Palmer but will probably be better than Sanchez.

if the Fins thought any of these QBs would fall to them they're more delusional than i thought

A story like this has been gase's MO for a while.

 

There has been a rumor that he releases info such as this to protect himself

 

If darnold flames out, it's an I told you so. If it works out its a look at the great work I've done

 

The jets/gase did this around the draft with similar things as this between Q. Williams and ed Oliver

It was always said that Darnold was the guy with the best floor so he was a safer pick. I think people know the ceiling and potential with the other athletically is better but they are wild cards. Darnold doesn’t scare me. I am more scared of Tua going to the Phins next year. The Phins and Bills will be real rivals again when that happens.

Kind of like the Bills hiring Wrex after his tire fire with NYJ.

 

I think the only ones to get away with hiring someone else's trash were the Pats with Billy Boy.

 

Billy Boy was never trash. Even with Cleveland he wasnt trash.
