    Seriously for those of us that are a little more "mature" in age, have you ever been more optimistic about the future then you are right now?

    Who else is picturing Mac calling out for Chinese food to treat himself and looking like the Chesire cat as he orders a #44 and #27

    A lot to like with Darnold. Mechanics, feel, decisiveness. Wow.

    I would have to go back to Pennington to remember feeling this good about a Jet QB.

    All this talk about the offense and the stout play of the Jets D has been overlooked. They look solid.

    Not that I'm complaining. Nice half in all phases of the game.

    Agreed Cman. Thats the last time I felt like we had "our guy" but I can honestly say I didnt feel that way his first year or even second year. It was that third year when he got in and started moving the ball when I perked up.

    Any chance the Jets aren’t keeping it as vanilla as teams generally do in the preseason? I know they were running to the outside a lot but it m wondering if their switching it up in the passing game a bit to really see what they’ve got.

    I'm trying to keep my excitement in check, but really impressed with the team as a whole so far. Defense is showing up, Bridgewater is improving his stock, and Darnold isn't playing like a 21 year old rookie.

    I wonder when teams will start to make Sam roll left. He's money rolling right and the film on him will start to get around the league.

    That was an impressive half of quarterback play. I could not be more satisfied with what I witnessed.

    Lost in all this beautiful QB play is the D baby. They're getting pressure and covering people. I'm starting to get excited about this season.
