DUCK! Jets TE Soup – Yes, I am very Groucho today.

Remember two-time Pro Bowler Mickey Shuler?

From Wiki

“A third-round pick (#61 overall) in 1978 NFL Draft by the New York Jets for whom he would play for 12 seasons. The 6′ 3″, 230-pound Shuler had seven playoff appearances and two Pro Bowl appearances (1986, 1988). He was named as the tight end for the Jets All-Time Team and the Jets Dream Team.

For his career, Shuler totaled 462 receptions for 5,100 yards and 37 touchdowns. He is tied for third in all-time receptions for the Jets. He is also second in most consecutive games with a reception (86 games) and second in most touchdowns in a game (three).”

1988. That’s 30 years without a Pro Bowl TE.  Hell, even dumb luck alone should have given us a single Pro Bowler at TE, is this shit intentional?

Since, then It has been Coleridge’s nightmare rhyme, since the last great Jets TE of our Time.

All in a hot and copper sky,
The bloody Sun, at noon,
Right up above the mast did stand,
No bigger than the Moon.
Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.

Stone Hands Anthony Becht, Kyle Brady, and the unrealized talent of Johnny Mitchell.   Ugh

But…as sad as that group is,  We’d love them now, over this group. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you our New York Jets 2018 TE room!

Bucky Hodges   84 TE 6-6 257
Chris Herndon   89 TE 6-4 253 N/A R Miami (Fla.)
Clive Walford     87 TE 6-4 250 26 4 Miami (Fla.)
Jordan Leggett  86 TE 6-5 258 23 2 Clemson
Eric Tomlinson   83 TE 6-6 263 26 3 Texas-El Paso

Ugh. Yeah. That’s it. The 2018 NYJ TE room. Four blockers, (semi-athletic too light-in-the-ass offensive tackles, one tweener, and one catcher).


Remember we passed on Jake Butt,  Nick Vannett, and Jeff Heuerman.  Three BIG  standouts, we also passed on David Njoku and O.J. Howard, though in fairness, we would have had to use the Jamal Adams pick. But again, how long can we continue to kill first round picks on defensive players?  FWIW, offensive skill players take a couple, sometimes three years to groom. Big time D players are like RBs, they generally step in quickly, and contribute.

How many OC’s has Mickey Macc Fired? How Many kids had to change schools, players lives upheaved, all because he clearly does not value the position nor does he care to understand offensive football and the OCs he hires, or how they need the position.
Again, no …Six Sigma type analysis, at an organizational level of where we keep fucking it up.

Right now, the WR room is over stocked with crap talent, and the TE room lost ASJ over the Jags offer of an extra million dollars,  and one in whom the Jets invested time in while he got his life together, and now relies on Herndon, a draftee, Legget, an injured second year draftee and Tomlinson (whose first name is not LaDanian), a blocker that can catch, but has had shitty coaching. Again, seriously?

Leggett, and Herndon would have benfitted greatly, from keeping ASJ (gone ove 1 mil???? AYFKM?). And we could have drafted Jake Butt, who does not have the athleticism but does have the skills that offset the others, in the days of the WCO our TE room is all blockers, no threats. Great.

Now I may not have the same smiley sass, as the smart ass Barber Doll, but really Mickey Macc, can you do ANYTHING, to make Jets fans days a little bit better????

But the Jets needed to draft Stewart and Hansen, just sayin…  two safeties, two middling Wr’s, four top picks from one draft.

Mickey Mouse Management.

And if you weren’t reaching for the bottle, already, in 2013,  in three rounds the Jets drafted… drink up kiddies.

  1. Dee Milliner
  2.  Geno Smith.
  3. Brian Winters.

In 2013 Jets management passed on Tyler Eifert, Zach Ertz, Travis fucking Kelce, and Jordan Reed.  [email protected]#KKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not only did Idzik screw Sanchez, he drafted no one to help the hopeless Geno Smith either. Just imagine, what Sanchez might have been if any two of those, (particularly Kelce and Reed) had been drafted. We’d have an offense that had beaten NE in a Playoff Game with two bigtime weapons at that position..

Why is this team repeatedly, Post Tanny, led as if it was Rufus T. Firefly running Freedonia?

Minister of Finance: Here is the Treasury Department’s report, sir. I hope you’ll find it clear.

Rufus T. Firefly: Clear? Huh. Why a four-year-old child could understand this report.

[to Bob Roland]

Rufus T. Firefly: Run out and find me a four-year-old child, I can’t make head or tail of it.”

Now substitute OC for the Minister of Finance, and playbook for the word report.

Ahh, the Mickey Macc Club theme song.

M…..I ….C… See you just don’t get it…

K. E. Y.    Why, because the roster is effed.

M. A. Double C.   See ya next year after we





See why It’s easier to be a Yankees fan, the last big fuckup they had on THAT level, was trading Jay Buehner.

I want to know what you think,

C’mon enter the tigers den.
