  1. I'm just saying we need some perspective. He threw less interceptions than Unitas did in his 4th year.

  2. Lofton is worth a look. Hasn't he played mostly 4-3 in Atlanta? I know he is good against the run, but will he do the dirty work that Bart does?

  3. You dont get it, Tanny only evaluates what type of #2 pencil to buy. Football players are out of his expertise. The jets HC drafts all the players on this team

  4. This is how that game is played: 1. I say "Listing Kerley, Conner, McKnight, Ellis, Ducasse, Sanchez, Powell and Eric Smith as some sort of defense of a GM's success is ludicrous." 2. You reply with, "They're either fringe All Pro's now or will be All Pro's. Two AFC Championship Games. Yadda." 3. I say, "Packers, Steelers, Giants, Niners, Texans." 4. You say, "The players on those teams really aren't that good. Healthy Westerman=Clay Matthews. Amobi Okoye much?"

  6. What about Thomas Jones's running style would you want a RB to emulate?

  9. I'm pretty sure Curtis Martin only had 4 runs over 20 yards in 2004, when he led the league in rushing yards, despite 120 more opportunities. His longest run all season was 25 yards (that one coming in a game against Miami's #31 ranked rush defense, where Jordan had the same yards and TDs on fewer carries). He also averaged barely more catches per game than Martin even though he was the team's 3rd down back (unlike Greene, who came out for LT on most 3rd downs). Also it was behind a QB who - despite his obvious flaws - completed 2/3 of his passes and took far fewer sacks (unlike Sanchez) and wouldn't often make totally inaccurate throws in the flat or 4 yards downfield the way Sanchez does. I only heard a scarce few complaints back then. The lack of 100-yard games is more a function of a lack of 20-carry games than anything else. There aren't too many RBs that put up 100-yard games when they're usually getting only 10-16 carries. Maybe if the QB, WRs, and special teams didn't piss away possessions like it was the intended result he'd have carried the ball more and, by extension, had more 100 yard games. Lost in all your complaints, also, is that (just like Martin) Greene held onto the ball like no starter in the NFL last year. 1 fumble, 0 fumbles lost all season. I do agree on adding another back if they aren't going to use McKnight or Powell on 3rd downs. Forget LT, even if he wanted to come back. He's still got good hands, knows how to pick up blitzes, and does (or used to) garner locker room respect. But he's simply too old and slow to be used much and that will not improve in 2012. Greene is fine to use - and use regularly - if he has someone else complementing him who would actually make defenders chase someone more than once or twice a season. Greene's not going to make anyone forget Earl Campbell in this lifetime, but as long as the team isn't killing its cap (further) by throwing insane dollars at him his roster spot is and should be safe.

  14. Hey, once upon a time, an NFL QB got a $64m extension (with the second-most guaranteed money in the league) with one career playoff victory. Flacco has 5. Extrapolate that.

  16. Flacco's stats from last year: 312/542, 57.6%, 3610 yds, 20/12 TD/INT. But now look at these stats: 297/529, 56.1%, 3,336 yards, 23/20 TD/INT Know whose 4th year that was? Eli Manning.

  18. While all this is true about investment in the defense, under defensive coaches and this same GM who follows what they want they also: Traded the value of a high 3rd-round pick plus a pretty significant contract for Thomas Jones Traded a 1st rounder, a 2nd rounder, a starting DE, a starting LB, and a backup QB in order to draft Mark Sanchez and give him a $60M contract (or whatever it was). Traded a 2nd or 3rd (can't remember offhand) round pick that could have turned into a 1st round pick for Brett Favre. Traded a 3rd and a 5th (?) for Braylon Edwards. Paid his RFA tender of $6M in 2010. Traded a 5th for Santonio Holmes then gave him a $45M contract with $23M (?) guaranteed. Used a #4 overall pick on LT Ferguson, then extended him on a $10M/year deal. Used a 1st round pick on a center Mangold, then extended him on an $8M/year deal. Used a 2nd round pick on a QB, Clemens. Traded a 4th rounder (?) to move up into round 1 to draft a TE, Keller. Gave an $8M/year contract to free agent LG, Faneca. Gave a $5M/year contract to free agent RT, Woody. Re-signed RG Moore to a decent-sized (yet reasonable, for a change) contract. There were also some good moves they made by not making a move, like not matching Brad Smith's offer, not caving in to Braylon Edwards' supposedly ludicrous demands to be paid like Holmes, getting a 4th rounder for Leon Washington instead of caving to his starter-money demands, and not giving up the farm (and the pick used for Nick Mangold) to trade up from #29 for Matt Leinart in 2006. This team, under this GM with its defensive minded coaches, have spent a ridiculous amount of team resources (money and draft picks) on the offensive side of the ball. The idea that they have somehow ignored the offense is ludicrous. The #1 problem is the QB's they burned so much money and players traded-away and draft picks on haven't panned out as hoped (to put it mildly).

  19. He said it during a game broadcast Sperm, though I do remember the comment being discussed on JN the following day so maybe you can use your superior search skills to find it. You're telling me you don't think Sanchez looked more poised early his rookie year than he did last year? The kid came out of the gate like gangbusters. Remember his first game where he completed all those third down throws in Houston? Kid looked like he was going to dominate at that point. Then came the five consecutive turnover free games to start his second year. Then it seemed to all fall apart during his third year. I've said it here before, practice doesn't make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect. If you practice the wrong things you'll just get really good at doing the wrong thing. The kid wasn't this bad before this year. The reason for it is something we can debate until we're blue in the face. I think Peyton Manning is a pipe dream that isn't going to happen. From my POV we're currently stuck with this kid, so we may as well make the best of it. I prefer to hope he improves rather than make myself miserable wishing we had someone else who we're not going to get.

  22. I still believe he's done. You don't screw around with a bad neck. as for Irsay, the dude paid Peyton 26 million dollars last year to be injured, I think he's done enough.
