  1. Skrine was the no. 2 in Cleveleand with Joe Hayden at the no. 1. I have no doubt that the Jets gave Skrine such a big contract to play the slot, knowing at some point he would at least get a look to play on the outside at some point. Skrine wasn't phenomenal with the Browns at CB, but he was solid, which is better than some no. 2 CB's. Williams and Milliner could also see some time out there.
  2. Yup...good, clean hit.
  3. Meh...I've seen Tx on boards for over ten years...I don't know how he gets people so worked up. There are some Jets fans who are worse than him IMO. Treat all the trolls equally. Ignore them. Posting something like this gives him exactly what he comes here for. That being said, very nice of him to fork some cash over for Kamdon.
  4. I'd say it's more "best QB available on a win now team" treatment.
  5. That being said, if the story is true, I"d be shocked if somebody doesn't get in some sh!t tomorrow at FP. The Jets read all the blogs/forums, so they probably won't appreciate an intern sharing info outside the walls of FP.
  6. I've said a million times this off-season that I want Fitz back, but I hope, for the sake of the team, one of the kids outplays him and takes the job. That would be a positive development for the franchise. I said it again the other day, and somebody lol'd and said "how could you possibly say that after spending all off-season rooting for him to come back"? Was unable to comprehend the fact that I would gladly be dead wrong if it was good for the team. Clearly that's at least one poster who will be rooting against the Jets in 2016 if Fitz is under center. To each his own, I suppose.
  7. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000676848/article/veteran-receiver-anquan-boldin-to-join-detroit-lions Anquan Boldin wasn't going to be on the market for long, especially with so many teams struggling to find depth at wide receiver. In the end, it was Jim Caldwell and the Lions who made the strongest push, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. The 35-year-old will be signing with his former coordinator, now the head coach of the Calvin Johnson-less Lions. Amid an offseason where the club scrambled to make up for the loss ofMegatron, it was perhaps their last move that will have the most immediate impact. Boldin joins a group of receivers currently led by Golden Tate,Marvin Jones, T.J. Jones and Jeremy Kerley. Boldin caught 69 passes for 789 yards and four touchdowns a year ago. The remarkably consistent veteran will enter his 14th NFL season having played a majority of his games in each campaign. In all but one season -- 2007 with the Arizona Cardinals -- Boldin was targeted over 100 times. Entering the downside of his 30s, Boldin caught 237 passes for 3,030 yards and 16 touchdowns over his age 33, 34 and 35 seasons. The signing gives another nod to the Lions' plan post-Megatron: Replace production with possession. While the Lions might never be able to adequately recover from the loss of a 6-foot-6 behemoth and once-in-a-generation matchup nightmare, they have lined up a solid three-tiered receiving corps that should keep momentum moving in the right direction. Per Rapoport, the Philadelphia Eagles andNew Orleans Saints also showed interest.
  8. Good question....I asked it a few weeks ago and people lost their minds.
  9. Here's the AFC East...click the link for more teams http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000675407/article/nfl-bold-predictions-going-out-on-a-limb-with-each-afc-team AFC EAST Buffalo Bills: Rex Ryan's team ends Seattle's run as the NFL's stingiest scoring defense. Rex Ryan says the Bills won the offseason. I was under the impression that everyone gets a participation trophy (usually wood with a gold-colored foil plate that says "participant") for the offseason. I am OK with saying Buffalo won the draft, however. The Bills picked up two pass rushers and an inside linebacker in Reggie Ragland who is capable of starting Week 1. Throw in an under-the-radar corner in sixth-round pick Kevon Seymour -- as well as the departure of the disgruntled Mario Williams -- and voila: You have a retooled defense. The Seahawks have led the league in points allowed four consecutive years, a record in the modern era. It has to end some time. That Tom Bradywill be suspended for the Week 4 trip to New England certainly helps the cause. Miami Dolphins: The Fins lead the NFL with 50 sacks. Mario Williams might be walking intowhat could be the best pass rush in the league. Part of that is because Miami will let him tee off on QBs as a 4-3 DE, which is what Williams has always been best at doing. While many boo-hooedOlivier Vernon's departure, the inconvenient truth is that Vernon only averaged 7.25 sacks per year. Then you have Cameron Wake, who missed much time last season. While he might be considered past his prime at 34, bear in mind he racked up seven sacks in seven games. You think Ndamukong Suh might've heard whispers about his own declining play? I see 30-35 sacks coming from Williams, Wake and a man named Suh. New England Patriots: Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett combine for 20 scores. Thankfully, the Deflategate saga is now over. Whether you agree with Tom Brady's or the league's actions, there is no doubt New England's passing game will be weaker during Brady's four-game suspension. You will also hear about the Patriots using the run game more. The beauty of that strategy is that both Gronkowski and Bennett are solid in-line blockers, which means they will be on the field, together, often ... Which also means that, even with Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback through Week 4, these two tight ends could still combine for a staggering 20 touchdowns in 2016. New York Jets: Matt Forte rolls up 1,800 yards from scrimmage. Making a bold prediction about the Jets' defense sounded fun -- maybe something like Leonard Williams making first-team All-Pro in Year 2. Prognosticating that New York would make the postseason with Geno Smithat quarterback darted through my mind, but that felt like a swing and a miss. Then I realized that the Ryan Fitzpatrickand Muhammad Wilkerson sagas have pushed a significant offseason signingunder the carpet. Forte has changed his workout routine -- incorporating Pilates -- in an effort to stay productive at 30. With Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker outside, and with Forte's ability to catch the football, the lofty yards-from-scrimmage total of 1,800 -- which he topped in both 2013 and 2014 -- is within reach.
  10. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000676843/article/cowboys-randy-gregory-facing-additional-suspension The situation on the Dallas Cowboys' defensive front seven continues to grow ever bleaker. Defensive end Randy Gregory, already suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season, is enrolling into a treatment program as he faces the prospect of an additional suspension, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the player's plans. The real worry, per Rapoport, is that Gregory has shut out people in his inner circle. It's now hoped that treatment will help him resolve the problem and allow him to get his football career back on track. The latest ban is also for violation of the NFL's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse, which will likely bring the suspension to at least 10 games. There is concern amongst the Cowboys' braintrust, Rapoport added, that Gregory might not play again. "I don't want to comment on that," said Cowboys coach Jason Garrett in response to news of Gregory facing suspension, according to the Cowboys' official website. "I'm not commenting onRandy Gregory." A consensus top-10 talent leading up to the 2015 NFL Draft, Gregory plummeted to Dallas in the second round due to a failed drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine. The Nebraska star also was late to pre-draft interviews amid concerns about his ability to handle the "mental rigors" of professional football. Needless to say, the Cowboys were well aware of the risk in drafting Gregory. Executive vice president and chief operating officer Stephen Jones made it clear months ago that the second-year edge rusher was on thin ice. "This is a disappointment," Jones said in February. "We have been clear with Randy about what his responsibilities are and what is expected of him. This is something that he is going to have to work through and correct." Along with Gregory's lengthy absence, the Cowboys also have middle linebacker Rolando McClainserving a 10-game suspension and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence sitting out the first four games. The front office is under increasing pressure to import pass rushing help over the next six weeks.
  11. Totally unbiased...gonna call it like I see it. Although @KRL will be handling the overview for the first four days, I'll be focusing on a few individual players each day.
  12. It's a way to kill time in the offseason. Football starts on Thursday as far as I'm concerned, and I hope everyone in Green and White plays lights out...though I doubt they will. Awesome...looking forward to a couple beers at the tailgate!
  13. Oh...you're surprised that I don't get all emotionally imbalanced when things don't go the way I want them to. Gotcha. BTW....you coming up to any games this year?
  14. Huh? Worth what? Are you suggesting that because you've pitched a hypothetical record to me and that I've responded the way I have that said poor start is a done deal?
  15. I can only speak for myself. It'd be something along the lines of "dammit, I hoped 20 PPG would be enough to weather the tough early schedule. Time to start whichever of the 3 kids has shown the most...take care, Fitz"
