  5. Obviously this is all pure speculation but I’d probably take any of these deals. Interestingly enough, I like the Lattimore deal the least. A lot of fans have it in their heads that Lattimore is some kind of ascending, pro-bowl caliber CB when in reality he’s steadily gotten worse and worse since his rookie season.

  7. Funny the only one I like out of those is the Dallas trade...2nd and a young center. The rest are just plugging holes in the short term and taking a lesser draft pick. None of those players are worthy of a long term investment and we aren't winning anything this year.

  9. I correctly predicted losing seasons each of the last 2 years on this board, and both times, was ridiculed. I feel that I am a realist, so I will tell you the good and the bad: The Bad: 1. The tight ends are below average, and we have a rookie quarterback. 2. We have unproven cornerbacks, and while I like our starting linebacker corps, I feel the the depth is not there. 3. No superstar running backs, and our right guard is the weak point of the offensive line. These translate into a very uneven team this year. The team got better, but with a rookie QB, unproven cornerbacks and still holes at tight end and right guard, I predict the Jets will struggle in many games that they will be competitive in. The Good: 1. Wide receiver group is respectable. Offensive line is respectable. Quarterback will prove to be respectable, but still a rookie. 2. Defensive line will excel. Starting linebackers will be respectable. Cornerbacks will struggle and cost the Jets games. This translates into a team "on the rise". No one will bully this Jets team, and the direction of the organization is pointing up for once in a long time. My optimistic view is that this Jets team will be 9-8 this season. My pessimistic view is that this Jets team will be 8-9 this season. This is a big hurdle up, but will be still disappointing to most Jets fans. Things are getting better.

  10. Sitting around Saturday morning, and my wife randomly puts on an old show on CBS called "Greatest Sports Legends: 1988", and there's a whole section of Don Maynard being interviewed by Michael Jordan. LOL. Actually pretty cool (obviously) because Maynard is criminally underrated and forgotten by Non-Jets NFL fans...

  18. Ranking NY Jets RBs and TEs by pass blocking ability By Michael Nania - 07/16/2021 0 (Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images) Pass blocking is an overlooked aspect of the RB and TE positions. Here is how the NY Jets’ RBs and TEs fare in the facet. Navigation show In the 2020 NFL season, running backs pass-blocked on 10.5% of their offensive snaps. Tight ends pass-blocked on 8.3% of their offensive snaps. Altogether, running backs and tight ends combined for 7,336 pass-blocking snaps. That’s a fairly large chunk of football that does not get talked about much in the NFL community. Pass blocking is an important aspect of playing RB or TE at any level of football. Lacking the ability to protect the quarterback can make a RB or TE a major liability in passing situations. Teams can hide a RB or TE’s lack of protection talent by having him pass-block extremely infrequently, but that makes him highly predictable, creating a pre-snap advantage for the defense. If a certain RB or TE almost never stays in to block because he is so bad at it, the opponent will notice that on tape, and on gameday, they will know he is going to leave the backfield almost every time he is on the field in a passing situation. This is valuable information for the opponent. Using a bad blocker in pass protection at a normal rate can allow teams to avoid becoming predictable, but then they have the obvious problem of, well, relying on a bad blocker to protect the QB – typically against an athletic blitzer bearing down at full speed. This dilemma sums up why it is so important to have RBs and TEs who can pass-block effectively. In addition to the obvious advantage of helping to keep the QB safe. Do the New York Jets have RBs and TEs they can rely on in pass protection? Let’s sort their key players at these two positions into tiers based on their pass-blocking ability. Bad pass blockers RB Ty Johnson Career allowed pressure rate: 20.0% (2020 NFL RB average: 10.4%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 32.2 (2020 NFL RB average: 53.1) Career pass-block frequency: 10.3% of snaps (2020 NFL RB average: 10.5%) Out of all 11 players we will break down today, Ty Johnson owns by far the worst allowed pressure rate and PFF pass-block grade relative to his position’s 2020 league average. He has given up 10 pressures over just 50 snaps in protection (20.0% rate). Although Johnson’s career pass-block frequency (10.3% of snaps) is close to typical for a running back, the Jets brought that number down in 2020 after witnessing the tape of him struggling as a pass protector over a fairly large sample of reps for Detroit in 2019. Johnson pass-blocked on only 7.1% of his snaps with the Jets in 2020. Johnson ducks his head and lunges into this block. He is easily side-stepped by Roquan Smith and gives up a sack. RB Josh Adams Career allowed pressure rate: 11.5% (2020 NFL RB average: 10.4%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 40.7 (2020 NFL RB average: 53.1) Career pass-block frequency: 7.6% of snaps (2020 NFL RB average: 10.5%) Josh Adams has the lowest career pass-block frequency (7.6% of snaps) relative to his position’s 2020 league average of the 11 players broken down in this piece. Both the Eagles and the Jets were aware of his deficiencies in this area and accordingly did not ask him to do too much blocking. Over 26 protection snaps, Adams has coughed up three pressures, two of which were sacks. He oversets outside here and gets beat inside by Shaun Dion Hamilton, who forces Nick Foles to scramble and then works back outside for the sack. TE/FB Trevon Wesco Career allowed pressure rate: 11.3% (2020 NFL TE average: 6.9%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 35.3 (2020 NFL TE average: 59.7) Career pass-block frequency: 14.7% of snaps (2020 NFL TE average: 8.3%) Trevon Wesco has the highest career pass-block frequency of any tight end on the Jets’ roster (14.7% of snaps) despite struggling in the phase. Wesco gave up five pressures over 38 snaps (13.2% rate) in 2019. In response to his poor production, the Jets minimized his protection role in 2020, giving him only 13 snaps in protection (allowing 1 pressure and posting a 50.3 pass-block grade). As the innermost of two in-line tight ends here, Wesco is decimated by a club move from Daeshon Hall, giving up a sack. TE Daniel Brown Career allowed pressure rate: 9.7% (2020 NFL TE average: 6.9%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 52.9 (2020 NFL TE average: 59.7) Career pass-block frequency: 6.6% of snaps (2020 NFL TE average: 8.3%) Daniel Brown has not been asked to protect all that often and has been below-average in the role. Here, he gets beat around the corner by Trent Murphy, who simply flashes his inside hand to get Brown to throw his hands, quickly pulls his hand out, and runs free around the corner as Brown ducks into the block and whiffs. TE Ryan Griffin Career allowed pressure rate: 10.0% (2020 NFL TE average: 6.9%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 58.8 (2020 NFL TE average: 59.7) Career pass-block frequency: 9.5% of snaps (2020 NFL TE average: 8.3%) Ryan Griffin has allowed 14 pressures over 155 protection snaps across his two seasons with the Jets. In 2019, he led all tight ends with nine pressures allowed. Griffin begins this rep with a false step on his outside foot, and that’s all it takes for him to lose the battle. Haason Reddick blows right by him to get a QB hit on Joe Flacco. Good pass blockers RB Tevin Coleman Career allowed pressure rate: 6.2% (2020 NFL RB average: 10.4%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 65.1 (2020 NFL RB average: 53.1) Career pass-block frequency: 12.4% of snaps (2020 NFL RB average: 10.5%) Tevin Coleman couples his solid receiving ability with good pass blocking to make himself a prototype third-down back. He has allowed just eight pressures – including only one sack – over his last 178 protection snaps (4.5% pressure rate), dating back to Week 3 of the 2017 season. Coleman does a nice job of navigating this stunt by the Jets’ defensive front as he picks up the looping Neville Hewitt and drives him away from the pocket. RB Michael Carter Stats from college career Career allowed pressure rate: 5.3% (2020 NFL RB average: 10.4%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 75.2 (2020 NFL RB average: 53.1) Career pass-block frequency: 14.9% of snaps (2020 NFL RB average: 10.5%) Michael Carter did a nice job of protecting the QB at North Carolina, and he was asked to do it quite often (14.9% of snaps). In the 2019 season, Carter logged 100 protection snaps, making up 20.9% of his snaps. Carter expertly handles this stunt by the Florida State defense. He sees the defensive tackle crashing down and the outside linebacker looping behind him toward the A-gap. Carter slides into the A-gap and meets the LB just as he arrives, getting low and laying a shot to protect the gap. RB La’Mical Perine Career allowed pressure rate: 8.8% (2020 NFL RB average: 10.4%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 60.5 (2020 NFL RB average: 53.1) Career pass-block frequency: 17.0% of snaps (2020 NFL RB average: 10.5%) La’Mical Perine was a fantastic pass blocker in college. He allowed zero pressures over 65 protection snaps during his senior season at Florida. The Jets asked Perine to pass-block a lot in his rookie season. He stayed in to protect on 17.0% of his snaps, giving him the highest career rate of any RB or TE on the Jets’ roster. There were ups and downs for Perine in pass protection throughout his debut campaign, but he ultimately performed better than average. Here is a fantastic A-gap pickup against a blitzing linebacker in which Perine absorbs the rush and holds his ground. TE Chris Herndon Career allowed pressure rate: 5.3% (2020 NFL TE average: 6.9%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 73.5 (2020 NFL TE average: 59.7) Career pass-block frequency: 13.0% of snaps (2020 NFL TE average: 8.3%) Protecting the QB was the only thing that Chris Herndon consistently did well in 2020. The Jets relied on him to pass-block more than any other tight end in the league, as he led the position with 109 protection snaps (making up 16.1% of his snaps). He delivered in that role. Herndon allowed only four pressures (3.7% rate). Herndon engages the outside linebacker here, but the OLB quickly drops into coverage. Herndon slides inside and looks for work. Right at that moment, Chuma Edoga is defeated by his defender, who has a clear lane to Flacco’s blindside. Herndon saves the day, sliding in and giving the defender a good shot to knock him off his path and send him right into the hands of Alex Lewis. TE Tyler Kroft Career allowed pressure rate: 3.9% (2020 NFL TE average: 6.9%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 67.7 (2020 NFL TE average: 59.7) Career pass-block frequency: 12.5% of snaps (2020 NFL TE average: 8.3%) Blocking is Tyler Kroft‘s bread-and-butter, and he gets it done both in the running game and in the passing game. Kroft has not allowed a sack or a QB hit since Week 3 of the 2018 season (logging 72 protection snaps since then with just two hurries allowed). Playing H-back here, Kroft goes one-on-one with starting edge rusher Harold Landry and carries him out of the screen as he gets hands-on and uses Landry’s momentum against him. TE Kenny Yeboah Career allowed pressure rate: 2.0% (2020 NFL TE average: 6.9%) Career Pro Football Focus pass-block grade: 67.9 (2020 NFL TE average: 59.7) Career pass-block frequency: 10.4% of snaps (2020 NFL TE average: 8.3%) Kenny Yeboah has some concerns as a run blocker, but his pass blocking at Ole Miss was pretty darn good. He gave up only four pressures over 197 career protection snaps (2.0% rate), including zero sacks. Yeboah takes on the stand-up edge rusher. He puts himself in a tough spot as he initially steps to the inside, but he is able to recover as he flips his hips outside, absorbs the two-hand punch, and then works the rusher up the arc so the QB can step up. It’s a mixed bag for the Jets in this area. Of the 11 RBs and TEs that were analyzed above, six have positive track records in pass protection while five have been turnstiles. Three of the five RBs and three of the six TEs are known as solid pass blockers. Keep an eye out for pass blocking at the RB and TE positions as you watch the Jets throughout the next couple of months. How these players perform in this area during training camp and the preseason will play a big role in determining who makes the roster. When the regular season rolls around, it will be instrumental in determining how snaps are distributed across the depth chart. Pass protection is not just the offensive line’s job. The skill position players need to do their part to keep the QB safe as well. Do not overlook the importance of this part of the game for RBs and TEs.

I don't think they are sharing info no matter how much they are intertwined...they take draft secrets to the grave....or at least until draft day

  30. Love Joe Douglas. 28 Year old player. Just had his best year as a Pro. We're about to change our entire defensive scheme. By time this team is ready to compete deep in the playoffs hell be over 30. This is just not the time to sign a guy like Maye to a megadeal. At his age and our timeline this is a Franchise and let walk or Franchise x2 situation while we find his replacement. How many top 10 safeties are over 30 yrs old? Not many.

  32. Most fans think their team had a good offseason and will be better next year. Nobody wants to believe things clearly got worse and it's going to be a long season. Maybe Lions fans are reading the room and recognizing they're in for a rebuild. Personally we were far enough away from contention last year that I'm not overly worried about the distance between us and the Bills. I just want to see a competitive team that plays with fire, a competent offense, and smart coaching. If we're hovering around .500 and in every game I'm okay with that. Next year is when you want to make that leap to the playoffs. As far as the division: Bills are very good and didn't lose much. They're the runaway favorites to win the division, IMO. I only see serious regression from them if Allen is injured or really takes a step back. Dolphins look better on paper -- outside of the QB position where they may have regressed. Tua is the key factor there. If he plays like he did last year I can't see them making much noise. Pats look better (they had a ton of opt outs last year and signed a bunch of FAs) but I'm not convinced it will matter. They felt very tired last year and Cam looked shot.

We are hoping hes a great player for us but he's gonna be a massive drain on our resources where there shouldn't be one. Bell, Enunwa and Tru were bad enough that we are literaly still paying for them, but Mosely is even worse. Dumping $14 mil into Maye would be foolish.

  36. Linderbaum is very, very good. Iowa has produced some very good centers over the Ferentz 20 year tenure and I'd say Linderbaum is the best of all of them. First and foremost he is a technical savant. Lots of Iowa OL are pretty advanced in technique but Linderbaum is another level. That's not my opinion(though what I do know about OL technique I'd agree) that's from people in the program. I wasn't going to lead with that because I didn't want it to take away from his athleticism because he is an elite athlete for the position, at least at the college level. He will be plenty athletic for NFL as well. In my opinion he's the most mobile interior OL of the Ferentz era. Maybe tied with James Daniels, who was a 2nd rd pick if the Bears a few years ago. He's also a big time competitor and leader. He's one of the most respected guys on the current roster. Very vocal leader. A bit rare for an OL. His main knock right now is size. He played last year around 290, which won't fly in the NFL. People will associate that with a lack of strength but they shouldn't. He's plenty strong. Country strong. He will also be able to add some weight easily Overall, not a lot of downside to his game. I could certainly see him as a 1st round pick next year. Just for giggles, below is a video of him chucking a hay bale over a 10 ft bar last night. He tied for the competition title clearing 14 feet. This is a bit of a tradition in Iowa football. For comparison sake, Tristan Wirfs won this completion a few years ago at 12 feet. Wirfs is universally considered the strongest weight room guy in program history.

  38. Of course you are 100% accurate. How painful was it to watch Trumane Johson play like garbage while pulling in around $14M per year, and then get cut while we still owe him a ton of money. How painful was it when our wide receiver who was recovering from a serious neck injury signs a big extension, only to never play for the Jets again due to the same neck injury. How about when Wilkerson got his big contract, then disappeared into oblivion? Paying CJ Moseley huge money, then watching him get hurt in game #1, then him opting out in season #2? I could go on and on and on and on. It can be a little frustrating when the Jets play hardball with players that we want to keep, but if JD doesn't play hardball now, we get to watch the Jets play softball in the regular season games. Winning starts with preparation, and JD is preparing the Jets to succeed in the future.

I suspect exactly the opposite; that they knew the Jets were taking Wilson, and with that they knew they’d get their guy at #3. They may’ve told Brigham Young’s great grandson something else, but that doesn’t make it true.

  44. I think all of them can be successful l Lawrence and Wilson were far above the others IMO. 49ers actually decided that the Jets would not take Wilson and lost the bet. According to Steve Young they were certain we would take Fields. Other than the Top two, the others have more question marks but all are solid prospects. I think by week 6 or earlier all of them are starting.
