  1. Rex Ryan says he tried to trade for Odell Beckham while Jets' coach Rich Cimini ESPN That Rex Ryan, he's one funny guy. In an interview with Don Banks of SI.com, the Buffalo Bills coach mentioned in passing that he attempted to trade for Odell Beckham Jr. in 2014. That, of course, was when Ryan was coaching the New York Jets. What prompted the Beckham reference? Ryan was defending the injury-prone Sammy Watkins, and he threw out Beckham's name to show that even great players have to deal with injuries. Take it away, Rex: "Has he missed a little time? Yeah. Big deal. He and everyone else," Ryan said of Watkins. "The Beckham kid came out the same year, and he missed how many games with a hamstring issue? Believe me, I was trying to trade for him when he had the hamstring. I was reading the [New York] papers, and I was like, ‘Well, hell, we’ll take him.’ But Sammy’s not even going to miss any time. He’s going to be ready to roll when it matters.” Beckham's hamstring injury, which cost him the first four games of his rookie season, was a daily soap opera in New York in the summer of '14. It's not clear if the idea of trading for Beckham made it from Ryan's brain (imagination?) to his boss, general manager John Idzik. Chances are it was a case of Rex being Rex, trying to get something he knew he couldn't have. It probably never happened, but let's try to imagine how the phone conversation might have gone with New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese: Idzik: Jerry, we're interested in trading for Beckham. Reese: Are you serious? You've got a better chance of getting David Beckham than Odell. That Ryan brought it up now may have been another of his many post-firing tweaks at Idzik, who failed miserably in the area of talent procurement. Heck, the Jets didn't need Beckham anyway. They drafted three receivers that year -- Jalen Saunders, Shaq Evans and Quincy Enunwa. Two busts and a backup. Typical Rex BS.
  2. Yep. Not a bad gig if you can get it. Also, building up false hopes from city to city.
  3. Well the Hackenberg video is extensive and kudos to the breakdown. My takeaway on Hack is the following: Pros Cons Big strong kid Real accuracy issues Great arm Decision making Quick release Can scramble Decent pocket awareness Bottom line for me is, the kid has a lot of potential. BTW the PSU receivers suck.
  4. LOL. His analysis was impressive eh?
  5. Jets -- One of the Most Improved Defenses in Draft?

    And without signing overpriced beat up free agents. I like It.
  6. Watkins Breaks Foot

    Oh boy.
  7. LOL. Hey I grew up on sh*t like that.
  8. Watkins Breaks Foot

    And still cover him better than anybody on the Cheatriots.
  9. Watkins Breaks Foot

    At least he didn't break it during a game while handing the ball off to the opposition which lead to a TD.
  10. Shaq Lawson needs Shoulder Surgery

    Rex was quoted as saying "He's ok and stuff. We figured to go in there and clean up some stuff and then he'll be ok" Bills = Joke
  11. Hackenberg pick means nothing

    I really am moving away from Fitz at this point. I like him but, he has a ceiling and we have seen it up close. Lets give the kids a shot and if Geno is ANYTHING, this is his last chance to prove it.
  12. When the oncologist - EDITED

    Well I am very sorry to hear this Phil. My son is cancer free for almost a year now and your lovely wife will be too. Families that have to deal with health issues realize how everything else (money problems, etc.) is just BS. I will pray for you and your family Phil. Stay positive and take it 1 day at a time. God is with you.
  13. They are, spiritually. LOL
  14. After a few years gone by, that video is just as embarrassing and cringe worthy today as it was then..
