I'm A Jets Fan Who's Hated Every QB We've Had Since Namath; Ask Me Anything

That’s true, but you can’t go very far consistently without a great QB.

Did we consistently go very far with Newton?

Even when you have that, you do still have to build around it.

Ideally all the pieces work hand in hand to create something greater than the individual parts.  Football is the ultimate team game.  A franchise QB is the most important part of that team, but not the end all-be all.  

It's a great place to start and should be looked at first until it is resolved. Next comes LT because it is the second hardest spot to fill and can ruin the 1st. 

A great QB would put us back into playing for a winning season.

Right, we’re all saying the same thing. You need it all. Some people just want to solve the QB problem first, some want to build the team first.

Personally, I don’t think it makes a ton of sense to build an amazing team without knowing if you’ll be able to get a good QB. Amazing teams are hard to build and typically only stay together for a year or two.

Many ways to skin a cat in football. 

BTW..We went far in 2015 when Cam was actually great. Look what he did with a sub par WR Corp.

Personally, I appreciate smart fans' perspectives more than the pro analysts'. As such, I'm more skeptical about Darnold than I was, but there's still hope. 

I just hope Justin Fields falls to 8.

I would love to get Fields and see them battle. So we can get rid of Teddy

Of course Mel Kiper likes the deal and gives us a A+. He says, "stats lie," and he hopes Darnold goes the way of Josh Allen and proves everyone wrong because he believes Darnold still can be a highly competent QB.

Was at the 2013 Game.  Fun Stadium, Fun City.  Good people.  Went home with a loss.

Title says it all.  Happy to offer thoughts on your new QB.

would you agree that in the the last half century (50 years), the buttfumble is the most iconic and memorable moment in Jets football history?

Well, it's not a popular opinion, but I don't think that Newton was ever a truly elite QB, mainly because of inconsistent mechanics and decision making, so it's no wonder that we couldn't get the consistency necessary to win a championship, especially when you add the mismanagement of adding a consistently great line and weapons around him. It just was never meant to be.

I think what people forget is that the Buttfumble happened on Thanksgiving.

So, yes.

The Jets, and specifically, Mark Sanchez, ruined Thanksgiving.

Mel Kiper, 2017: "I think when you look back at John Elway, Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck, we're going to view Sam Darnold in that same light."

Sounds like someone doesn't want to admit that they were, maybe, just a bit off here.

I watched it happen.

My buddy and I were both like "Did we just see that?" 😳

You'd think Kiper would be used to being wrong.
