Living in Wisconsin, it's fairly evident Cobb is a system guy. So is Kerley. They are both as good as their QB allows, and if your QB is going to the HOF (Brady/Rogers), you're quite likely to make some average to above average (Welker/Cobb) guys look like HOFers themselves.
Put them with Geno, Sanchez and whoever was in Miami with Welker...and well... you have JAG's.
I'm surprised you think Cobb is that good to be honest?
I'm not sure how Pettine will fair as a coach, but I have no reason to suspect he'll be any worse than any other newbie HC. I do like their offense a lot, even Jason Campbell could make it function to a reasonable degree...talk about a compliment for that guy.
Hoyer seems like a great choice to give the reigns to at least to start, the guy was poised, spread the ball around, and has two big time receivers in Gordon and Cameron (if Cameron ever gets the damn ball). Logic says they'll take a QB, and i have a feeling it'll be Bridgewater for whatever reason (i have no basis for this claim, just a hunch).
In a perfect world, Watkins will be there and they can trade back a few picks and pick up a solid linemen (either side of the ball) or and an RB. I know most people around here think trading back is for pussies, but can anyone think of a team that won a Super Bowl with two fantastic WR? IMO, that doesn't happen because at some point you have to pay them both and it limits where the remaining money can go to the rest of the squad (see Atlanta).
Good post...and i agree that Cleveland will be a tough W for most teams this year.
ok, i'll bite...why does a bunch or targets and no catches lead to none of them being catchable? I'm seriously mind f***ed right now and can't pull any reasoning out of my head or ass to come to the same conclusion as you. I'm sure you have statistical backing to base such a claim, so i'm going to go to sleep and try to forget that i read your post.
i'm not sure you're getting my point...i think the jets would make the playoffs if they had an all world running back. I also think they would have zero chance of getting through the divisional round of said playoffs because of their complete lack of a viable QB to do anything but throw the wrong jersey color.
The Vikings have been doing this for years...no QB, good defense...and they are worthless come playoff time.
Tell me again why we want an RB with no QB? does everyone want to make the divisional round again or something? Sorry but an RB in his prime right now, does us nothing if and when we have a QB in the near/distant/ever future.
No thanks, even if it was possible, i'd pass completely. Wait for Geno, or keep drafting QB's until you get one.
I don't really think Brees turned it around just because of competition, just illustrating a point of a QB getting better after a few years, and there was a competition. Do they correlate? I doubt it...although it did happen.
Don't make me find the post. It was the Mangini era, the jets were obviously in a 34, and giving up chunks of yards on the ground (per usual), that week you mentioned moving Ellis to OLB, so that someone could slide into DE. Anyway, i wouldn't have thought anything of it, had it not happened three days later on Sunday out of absolutely no where.
