  1. Not surprised...think he looks excellent
  2. Well said Sir, astonishing that it should even need pointing out but there you go
  3. Politicians tend to flame out within a decade....tops. Kiper's been getting it wildly wrong for going on 35 years now.
  4. I always thought the issue with Marino was about his alleged practice 'habits'
  5. Kaaya or Davis Webb in the draft and I'm on board, unless a guy like Trubisky or Watson make it to the 2nd round which I highly doubt
  6. As to the bolded part I couldn't agree more. The reality of journalism though is that you simply won't get people to talk candidly without anonymity in certain instances. The 'off the record' chats are by far the most intriguing believe me and the vast majority of the stuf that gets discussed off the record never gets reported for a number of reasons. I am personally not a fan of reporting without putting a name to it but in certain instances if the reporter is confident in the veracity of his or her source then they'll go public(especially on a medium like Twitter where gossip is almost part of it's make up) We have to decide if we trust a guy like Schefter in this instance. Would prefer to understand the motive but the fact a guy like Schefter felt this worthy of reporting suggests to me he believes his source. Just my opinion. as for the rest of your post re; Hack I totally agree
  7. Unfortunately I think this story is true, Schefter has a reputation for being accurate so I'm inclined to believe it and it is worrying no doubt. We have to hope the anonymous source turns out have been clueless.
  8. True but on the flip side when he throws a dart between defenders, fires a long out to the far side of the field or floats a beautiful fade into the back of the end zone and hits nothing but hands each time then it'll be a massive, pleasant surprise, in many ways the low expectations might actually help him. The anonymous quote about not being able to hit the ocean has created an expectation that he can barely complete a single pass. Clearly anyone who watched his college tape saw some wild inconsistency, it's the reason he went from touted No 1 overall pick after his freshman season to out of the 1st round altogether, but without doubt he can make some big time throws. Now whether good coaching can correct some technical flaws( largely in footwork) that meant too many throws were off(sometimes way off)remains to be seen but what we do know he has a lot of the tools, he has great size, arm talent, heart, toughness, smarts, ability to read a defence, leadership and even mobility. On top of all that he's played in a pro-style offense and understands the little things like operating a huddle, changing plays at the LOS, drawing defenders offside, taking snaps under centre and executing actual proper play-fakes, Watch college tape on just about every QB prospect these days and they are almost all playing in air-raid type offenses and operating entirely out of the shotgun, Both Geno & Petty for example, huge numbers, impressive throws, unprepared for an actual NFL offense. The almost comically low expectation level is such that if he actually takes the field and completes a couple of routine throws he'll have already gone way beyond the wildest expectations of about 70% of the experts(Jet fans on messageboards).
  9. Hey Win4ever is it you that does the all22 breakdowns throughout the season?...if so great job man I really found those useful and appreciate you taking the time. I'm sure you have a life to live rather than constantly cutting up tape for this site but would be interested in some college analysis if you are minded to have a go. Either way thanks again for providing the analysis throughout the season
  10. Nice job by the OP taking the time to provide us with some actual relevant and tangible material by which to analyse the pros and cons of a likely key target this offseason"..thanks nice job also by the handful of posters who also took the time to acknowledge that I liked Glennon coming out of college and there's a lot to like from his TB film but as others noted I sense he's going to be ridiculously overpaid a la Brock Osweiler. Hope I'm wrong.
  11. I think Mangold is the easiest cut of all this year unless he takes a drastic reduction in salary, barely noticed a drop off with Johnson in there and I thought Dakota Dozier was outstanding(in tandem with Shell) against Buffalo, if Dozier can handle snapping duties(and maybe more importantly the line calls)then there's a very decent competition there. Really excited by Brandon Shell and both Carp and Winters make for an above average OG tandem, it's all about finding an upper echelon LT as you say but with other priorities in the draft and no obvious FA solution that won't be straightforward
  12. OK thanks for clarification, for some reason I thought it extended to co-ordinations too, my bad
  13. Is there a chance we are all missing the point here? does the Rooney rule not apply when hiring an OC?....if so does Studesville satisfy that requirement? in which case the Jets have just gotten that formality out of the way, it looks good for Studesville in his resume and we are able to now make the nessecary hire as and when we are ready to appoint our man which may very well be tied into teams still active in the post-season
  14. + Great guy, great story and great UFA find by the Jets but Kris Jenkins he is not. He's as likely to be a cap casualty next year as anything else. But yet the narrative is that the Jets are dumb for not resigning him.
