    Yeah, then the Giants get called for PI when there's less there than what they didn't call earlier. So many flags are thrown it really makes me wonder why I even watch. The NFL averages 9 flags against each team per game I think. For a game that averages like 10 minutes of action that is just way too much.

    Damn, was hoping for a defensive struggle tonight to win the office pick em pool this week. Ravens and 41 points. Not looking good.

    Not pro, but this Alabama and Auburn game today is insane. The Iron Bowl living up to the hype. 38-37 Alabama late in the 3rd. Teams traditionally known for defense, can't play defense.

    I am so happy Alabama lost, enough bad things cannot happen to Nick Saban.

    Insert Patriots for Alabama and Bill Belichick for Nick Saban and I'll get on board.

    Woody/Christopher Johnson = Charles Wang
    Mike Maccagnon (yes I know he's gone) = Garth Snow
    Adam Gase = Doug Weight

    What a waste of a season and in typical Jets' fashion, they'll win enough games to save Gase's job but screw up their draft position.

    What can you say? SOJ (no translation required).

    Look at what Ryan friggin' Tannehill (a WR turned QB, mind you) is doing after getting away from the so-called QB whisperer named Adam Gase.

    There was some solace about the Jets losing as it knocked out a bunch of people in my suicide pool. And then Carolina goes out and loses and I'm out anyway.

    So yesterday pretty much sucked.

    Anyone who picked the Jets to win a December road game with their talent level and head coach deserved to get bounced from the pool.

    At least your Carolina pick was defensible. Washington is really bad but as the saying goes "Any given Sunday".

    I thought that pick was a layup. I already chalked it up as a win when they were up 14-0. Who woulda thunk the Skins roll off 29 points in a row? With that piece of **** offense.

    Three left in my pool. I picked Carolina. So did the other two.

    the band plays on.

    Typical Jets. 4-7 but thought they of all teams could walk into Cincinnati and get an easy win. Worst part is they won 3 in a row before this and ruined their chance at Andrew Thomas and then on top of that we’ll be stuck with Gase for another year. Awesome.

    The fall of TB12 is more rapid than anyone thought it would be.

    He's looked terrible, gets bailed out by the refs and their constant DPI calls for him.

    As a Denver Brocos fan, I'm over the moon tonight because I think we found our QB in Drew Lock.

    Another meaningless December game for Jets' fans and another unfortunate victory. To be honest, they probably would've screwed up a high draft pick anyway.

    I've always been optimistic regarding Darnold yet never sold on him as the savior. Nearly 2 seasons in, the jury is still out for me.

    The rebuild continues. 50 years and counting.

    When can the Jets be competitive again?I must admit I lost interest in the gridiron well over a decade ago. I was never a die-hard but enjoyed the occasional game.

    Once they start addressing the offensive line. Look at 2006 - they take back to back O lineman with their 2 picks in the 1st round (#4OA and #29OA) in D'Brick and Mangold. That was your foundation of those '09 & '10 teams that went to the AFC Championship games.

    What hurts the Jets was what they gave up to get Darnold without already having a halfway decent line to protect him. They lost 2 2nd rounders, that they would have used for offensive lineman, in that trade. Mikey Macc got his QB but did not prepare to get him...now Joey D has to scramble while he still has Darnold on his rookie deal.

    My fix (and I don't know more than anyone else):
    - Have Joey D tell Chris Johnson to kick rocks on football decisions due to his awful track record (hardest part).
    - Let Joe fire Gase and hire his OWN guy.
    - My preference is Matt Rhule from Baylor who was in the mix before they hired Gase. Have Gregg Williams (or Rex Ryan :naughty:) to be the DC who can run their side of the ball mostly on their own.
    - Try to trade Bell for as many picks in 2020 as possible.
    - Draft the highest rated O linemen (Thomas from UGA of course, would also love Biadasz from Wisco to give Sam a good young Center, etc.)
    - Deep RB draft as well to fill the hole left by Bell, but at a lot cheaper and YOUNGER.

    After spygate where the league burned the tapes to get rid of the evidence nothing serious will happen with this. I still watch football but not nearly as much as I used to. The product is just not as good anymore and it’s only going to get worse with less kids playing.

    So the tuck rule, spygate, inflategate, and now spygate part 2. Am I missing anything?
