    Here within lies the problem with blocking people for the sole reason of not being able to come up with a competent argument... you end up not being able to see there's already a thread on this with 18 replies literally at the top of the forum :D

    I hated the pick, but of course I wanted it to pan out. I thought that MAYBE there was a slight chance he could be competent because he was built like a custom-made NFL QB and at one point, even though it was three years earlier, he showed the ability to play football. I think part of it is him not being all that good to begin with and the team/coaches Penn State put around him. They were a mess. Just a real bad combo... Jets/Sanchez-esque.

    biggest reach i've seen ever as a Jet fan in terms of the QB position ... but hey, if it made Mac change how he views prospects and thats tied to Darnold then sign me up. GMs learn, hopefully Mac learned from that

    I thought it was worth the risk at the time, but the part I did not think about was it took the Jets away from drafting a QB in 2017. That is the part of the pick that I hate the most now. Hopefully Darnold erases all that, but it definitely set the Jets back a couple years.
    Amen!

    in retrospect we should be happy, if he didn't scout Hack, maybe he falls in love with Josh Allen

    I really do feel like this played a big part on the Jets never seemingly being interested in Allen. Although it never really would have mattered... I don't think anyone in their right mind was taking Allen over Darnold. But... Macc also may have been fine selling the pick and dropping back for Allen.

    You know what, I don't even wanna talk about this, it's giving me PTSD. We have Sam!

    No doubt. He doesn't play young guys. Ever. Now Hack and Petty are down the Toilet. Two lives wasted

    That Bates didn't tell him about Hack's new release is even more of an egregious failure. Never mind that nobody gave a fuck anymore...even Maccagnan. It was very very bad.

    Hack was a fucking terrible pick. I knew it from the jump and it was absolutely head-scratching.

    Hahahahahahahaaaahhhaaaaa.

    But seriously, he’s only 23 and he was the best HS QB a very recent 7 years ago and has all the tools.

    Hahahahahahahahaaahhhhhaaaaaa.

    Hahahahaaaa.

    Ha.

    What the actual fuck Mac. We all saw it. Why didn’t you.

    Hackenberg will be out of the league before he throws an official NFL pass

    Probably CFL bound eventually

    Well, not that it apparently mattered, but isn't the Bates you mention the same Bates that Petty and Hack had? Was there an epiphany I missed?

    Well, at least the Jets tried. It's a shame they couldn't get anything for Petty, earlier. He was always much more likely to be on a roster next year than Hackensham.
