Is LeVeon happy to be in New York?

He's lightyears ahead of Simien. :niterider

 

Yeah he is, but with practically nobody to throw to and no time

If you can make it there ...

 

You know the rest

 

He won't be happy if they start the season 0-4.

 

He will have to go home and lay on his money to perk himself up.

Good for him, he has lots of money. However, the Jets needed more than an overpriced running back. Build thru the draft, and use free agency to fill holes. Could be a long year for LeVeon, and Jets fans.

Hope so.

 

The Buffalo Bills, and the Pegulas, have things on the right path.

 

Cleared Cap Space. Drafted a QB. Drafted Ed Oliver, Tremaine Edmunds, signed Olinemen. Building a "culture" in the locker room.

 

Jets and Dolphins, not so much.

 

Just need Brady to retire....he is freakin' 42 years old. Peyton Manning and Brett Favre we all done by then....

Barclay didn't have a choice because he was drafted. But Bell played it really stupid I think. The Jets are 2 years away from being competitive, and the Giants might take even longer to recover from the huge mistake of drafting Barclay instead of a QB

 

 

Since I live close to the NY market, I know the Jets & Giants better than any team except the Bills (Knowing both the Giants & Bills allowed me to confidently bet the Bills last week, my 1st bet on a single game in 41 years, although now with legal betting there will be more).

 

The Jets aren't 2 years away from being competitive. Once they get Darnold back at QB along with their 3 suspended players, one of whom is their top TE and an integral part of their offense, they'll be better. The Jets main problem in being competitive is their O-line. As we have seen, a team can fix their O-line in one off-season. If they can fix some problems on their O-line, the Jets will be competitive later this year & at worst by next season.

 

As far as the Giants go, if Daniel Jones can become the QB they believe he is, they can be competitive next year as well. As long as Jones can be as good for the Giants as Sam Darnold is for the Jets, the Giants didn't make a mistake drafting Barkley over a QB, especially since Manning had 2 years left on his contract during the 2018 draft. They could afford to wait a year-as long as they are right about Jones-no bigger a gamble than what the Jets & Bills made in the 2018 draft. Unlike the Jets, the Giants have a decent O-line. They upgraded at RT & RG from last season & their starting center, who got injured early in 2018, is back this year. That's 3/5 of a new OL over 2018, big improvement, just like the Bills. The Giants biggest problem is their D. By next year they can fix that, just like any team that has the QB in place & cap money can do in a given off-season. Also, the Giants were missing their 2 top receivers when you saw them play the Bills (Sheppard concussion & Tate suspended). They'll have a better O to surround Jones with when these 2 come back.

 

Bottom line-It's still all about the QB. If the QB is in place a team not in cap hell can turn things around in 1 season. No team with a QB in place still on his rookie contract, is more than 1 season away as long as management fills in the right holes in free agency.

 

One more comment on Barkley-he has HOF potential and you don't draft with only one season in mind. If the Giants liked Jones a year ago & figured they could get him in 2019 while delaying the QB of the future by a year, they made a wise choice taking Barkley. Personally, I think the team that blew it on Barkley was Cleveland. They had picks 1 & 4 in the 2018 draft. If they had drafted Barkley at #1, the worst they could have done was the remaining QB among Mayfield, Darnold & Allen. If they really rated Mayfield that far above the other 2, they need new scouts.

Yeah, me to, I hate the Jets. But for some reason, NY City believes they've got to go out and bring the next big superstar to Broadway. Good for the Bill's, the only team that actually plays here.

As someone who has been following the Jets HARD the last couple of weeks your assessment is pretty accurate. I will say that the Jets have no corners and they have the 2nd largest amount tied up on the OL which is crazy because they suck. Thats what happens when your overpay for free agent OL who are not good
