    I think Sundays game is going to be very telling ... we all know how we've performed in games after big wins.

    Not that I'm not worried about the Dolphins, but the Browns game is the one I see us losing. Is Darnold enough of a pro to be ready in 3 days?? Who knows how much offseason work went to get him ready for Detroit. Hopefully he proves us all right and we go undefeated straight to the Superbowl, but I'd imagine he is going to lose us a few games since he is a rookie, and Cleveland could be a time when he shows.

    Said it this past Spring that the Browns are no push overs..just tied the Steelers last outing so they armed and dangerous imo

    The Dolphins defense still has Wake. Interested to see how Minkah Fitzpatrick looks. Offensively they have Drake and Gore in the backfield. Tannehill's weapons are not what they used to be, but he still has Parker, Stills and Amendola. Don't overlook them, but also don't over hype them. This is a game the Jets should and need to win.

    Parker is coming off a broken finger hasn't played in an actual game (preseason or not) in 5 weeks and besides that, he's been a career underachiever. I'm not too worried about him. The Dolphins also barely beat the Titans who were led by Blaine Gabbert for the majority of the 2H in game where they could gameplan for hours while in the locker room.

    If the Jets can make them one dimensional and make Tannenhill have to throw it 30-40 times I think we win handily. On offense, Hopefully we can keep the chains in 3rd and short or manageable like we did vs Detroit. Let Sam take whats given underneath and pick his shots to throw the ball downfield.

    I do think the Browns are better than most people think, but let me play devils advocate here. They had 5 turnovers and still almost lost the game... How good can they possibly be?

    I believe we are a better team. I also believe that we are a better team by a SLIGHT margin--we should be helped out by home field and our players really look like they're in it together (similar to circa 09-10).

    But, I would truly not be surprised if they beat us by 10-14 points, we just all have to know it could happen so we don't start throwing Darnold, Bowles, and Mac to the wolves.

    I still see this as a 6-7 win team until we string a few of these dominant performances together.

    Contrary to popular belief...I think we walk all over Miami...and Cleveland for that matter.

    Our shitty games are coming up later in the season.

    Stills will be a threat against the Jets. Really have to shut him down.

    Dude. Then buy a Brady jersey please. Don't wear it, just keep it on the side.

    This is why the nfl is great

    I assumed the Ravens would pancake the Bengals


    Not because of the Bill rout

    But thought Harbaugh and company would be prepared.

    This is the NFL




    This sends out the warning signal

    Please Todd

    Please get these guys ready.

    Just saw Miami’s starting LG Is out for the season. He was their best run blocker and it could definitely impact Tonsil at LT. Hopefully we can make them even mor 1 dimensional.

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap30...guard-josh-sitton-to-miss-rest-of-2018-season

    The Miami Dolphins offensive line played impressively in Week 1. Before the start of Week 2, the unit lost a key member for the season.

    Left guard Josh Sitton is out for the year with a torn rotator cuff, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday, per a source informed of the injury. Sitton attempted to play through the injury but will undergo season-ending surgery Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald first reported the news.

    Suck for him, but we better get some pressure up the gut against his backup.

    This is a huge loss for the Phins. The o-line was already and a concern and has no depth. Leonard Williams will be licking his chops...

    If he's not its a good indication that the Lions are terrible and the Jets got a very easy start to the schedule.

    i think the defense of the jets will disapoint this week because of the expectation that Jets fans will put on them after the first game.
