Joe Douglas appointed as the new GM, a lot of the media seem to think its a great move for the Jets. It'll be interesting to see how the relationship between Gase and him goes

Jets finally get their man! A new GM caps off a roller coaster of an off season and you would have to say they are in a better position at the end of it. At least we have hope!!!

Good signing from the sounds of it, the good thing to see imo is a very long contract, means he's been given reassurance that his success isn't tied to Gase I would imagine.

Not much newsworthy in Jets land at the moment, but Saturday, possibly the best player overall in J E T S history is inducted into the HOF. #68, Kevin Mawae. Congratulations, best center the team's ever had and perhaps one of the top 2 or 3 ever.

Not too much noteworthy from last night, starters looked good, depth didn't.... Corners and kickers were poor. Good to have football back though!

Yeah killer, although ILB is the one position where we look ok for depth. Hoping Cashman and another step into the void with a bit of luck.

Carli Lloyd (the first woman to earn a college football scholarship to an NCAA school at the Division II level or higher) has reportedly gotten an offer from a NFL team (possibly 2 teams) to kick in a preseason game Thursday. But Lloyd can’t make it work because the national team plays Portugal that night. She was at the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice last week. Things got serious when she sent a kick sailing 55 yards through the uprights. Lloyd, 37, was on the US Women’s World Cup championship teams in 2015. She was also a two-time FIFA women’s world player of the year. I wonder if the Jets were the team to make the offer?

From what I've seen she takes a fair run up to her kicks - would be interested to see her in a game situ.

It's just easy headlines, if she was actually getting calls (I doubt it), then so would a thousand male players be giving it a go.

Fair point and was addressed in this article from SI.

Taylor Bertolet kicks 2 field goals and misses 3 in the Jets' 6-0 win over Eagles.

Last year's kicker Jason Myers was 8-for-9 in the preseason, with three field goals from 50+ yards. The $5.5 million he's making this year from Seattle doesn't look so hefty, now does it?

With all the promise this season, they're still the Jets.
