    What would surprise you more?

    The New York Jets selected Smith in the second round (37th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft.[10] On May 8, 2015, the New York Jets signed Smith to a four-year, $5.87 million contract with $3.23 million guaranteed and a signing bonus of 2.53 million.[11][12] On November 29, 2015, Smith caught his first career touchdown against the Miami Dolphins.[13] On December 12, 2015, Smith suffered a knee injury and had to leave the Week 14 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. Two days later, it was revealed that he had suffered a torn ACL, bringing his rookie season to a premature end.[14] In 10 games of his rookie season in 2015, Smith had 115 receiving yards and a touchdown. On December 18, Smith was placed on Injured Reserve.[15] Smith started the 2016 season on PUP to rehabilitate his right knee suffered the previous season. He was activated off PUP to the active roster on November 9, 2016 prior to Week 10.[16] Smith was limited to four games in 2016, recording only one reception for 20 yards. On April 29, 2017, as the third day the 2017 NFL Draft was in progress, it was revealed that Smith had suffered another torn ACL to the same knee. This was his second torn ACL of his professional career, and he would miss the entire 2017 season.[17] On May 22, 2017, the Jets waived/injured Smith and placed him on injured reserve.[18] Professional career Mauldin was selected by the New York Jets in the third round (82nd overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft.[10] He signed a four-year, $3 million contract on May 7, 2015.[11] Mauldin played his first regular season game on September 13, 2015 against the Cleveland Browns, where he forced a fumble off Johnny Manziel. However, after forcing the fumble, he suffered an apparent neck injury, was rendered unconscious for a few minutes, carted off the field, and taken to a local hospital.[12] After undergoing tests, he was diagnosed with only a concussion and luckily, no serious neck injury.[13] During his rookie season in 2015, Mauldin played 15 games making 10 tackles, 4 sacks, and a fumble recovery.[14] On September 4, 2017, Mauldin was placed on injured reserve after dealing with a back injury throughout training camp.[15] Personal life On June 11, 2017, it was revealed that Mauldin attacked another customer at a Manhattan nightclub two months prior to the announcement. The battle started when the customer spilled champagne on Mauldin, triggering his attack. The victim was punched twice, left with a black eye, and hospitalized.[16] On June 21, 2017, Mauldin turned himself in to police, and was charged with misdemeanor assault.[17]
  2. That's one kid who didn't improve with age.
  3. Ben Macawho? Oh yeah the guy who was fired by the VaGiants. If he wasn't blasting Darnold would anyone really care what he thought? Please. Anyone who thinks Geno"friggin"Smith is a viable anything in this League should be ignored. Much ado about nothing IMO.
  4. LOL. In every post where you defend Macc I have given this example. Macc has virtually ignored the OL in the draft for years. You can't build something when you have no solid foundation in place. After drafting Darnold in the 1st he should have been focused on OL in the draft. At least in the 3rd round. Now we are left with what we have and a rookie QB. I hope they will be better than last year but its one of the reasons why I don't see them improving much on last years record no matter who starts behind center.
  5. LOL. Where did I say they were comparable? All I said was that I'm sure there are a-holes in the NHL. Maybe not on the scale of the NFL but I'm sure they exist. I don't know why your panties are in such a twist over this it's not really a big deal. At least to me.
  6. The other worrisome position on this team besides WR TE EDGE is RB. Sure Crowell is a serviceable player but I expect a RB by committee with all 3 backs getting considerable time. I think some may be expecting too much from Crowell though. Until it proves differently the Jets OL isn't much better than the Browns and I think the only thing We can hope for from Crowell will be consistency. Thats all we can expect from guys like this.
  7. Until we see improvement on the field in TC and the pre-season what do you expect? There are legit questions concerning the offense AND defense. Of course they are going to be ranked low and not much will be expected from them. Until they show it on the field this is what you will get.
  8. LOL. Yeah well the point is they were representing their COUNTRY and acted like buffoons on the world stage. I know its not popular now to want to be proud of your Country but back then this was considered a major thing. No one is making any of these guys out to be Angels and I'm sure the NHL has its share of A-holes just like every other sport. Lets face it, the NHL doesn't have the notoriety of the other major sports and I'm sure most people wouldn't know an NHL player if they walked up on one. Its a simple fact not a swipe at the NHL. Don't get your panties in a bunch.
  9. Yeah but at the least the Trolls are hitting the horse.....
  10. Well not so fast there Beavis. I remember the last time Pro Hockey players were allowed to play in the Olympics. Their behavior was so bad that they were called an embarrassment. Team USA makes ugly exit Commentary: American NHL players trash their Olympic Village quarters and their image. February 20, 1998|By Ken Rosenthal | Ken Rosenthal,SUN COLUMNIST NAGANO, Japan -- Maybe next time, the U.S. men's ice hockey professionals should just stay home. They've certainly done their best to ruin the first Olympic tournament to include National Hockey League players, an international breakthrough for the sport. After their elimination by the Czech Republic, the Americans capped off a week of questionable conduct and embarrassing play by trashing their quarters in the Olympic Village, U.S. Olympic Committee officials said. In 1980, ABC's Al Michaels shouted, "Do you believe in miracles?" when the U.S. team, then composed of amateurs, defeated the former Soviet Union on its way to the gold medal. The '98 team prompts another question: Do you believe in manners? USOC officials said players broke 10 to 12 chairs, damaged ADVERTISEMENT two apartments with fire extinguishers they activated, and tossed an extinguisher from the fifth floor into a courtyard. USOC officials said the incidents occurred at 4 a.m. yesterday Nagano time. Paul George, head of the U.S. delegation, estimated the damages at approximately $1,000. David Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey, said "only a handful" of players were involved. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, vice president Brian Burke and players union head Bob Goodenow viewed the damage to the village, USOC executive director Dick Schultz said. "I can say that they were disturbed and apologetic to our chief of mission and our delegation," Schultz said. "Obviously, such conduct is unacceptable and will not be tolerated," Bettman said. USA Hockey and the NHL offered to pay the cost of repairs. USOC officials will meet with Nagano organizers today to assess the damages. Meanwhile, Japanese police are investigating whether an injury to Canadian bobsledder Matthew Hindle from broken glass was caused by U.S. misconduct. Hindle reportedly was struck by a glass pane that had been knocked out of a sixth-floor room occupied by members of the U.S. delegation, but USOC officials said the hockey players were staying on the fifth floor. The officials, however, made no secret of their displeasure with the American NHL stars. "Not only are we disturbed that this happened for many reasons, but I am particularly unhappy that this incident disturbed other U.S. athletes who were sleeping and preparing for their events," USOC president Bill Hybl said. How selfish can you get? How stupid? The U.S. women's ice hockey team produced the feel-good American story of the Olympics, winning the gold medal with a dramatic victory over Canada. The U.S. men provided the obligatory ugly-American angle, acting like frat boys on the greatest international stage of all. They made a big deal out of staying in the village, gracing everyone with their presence. Thanks for coming, guys. "I'm really upset that all this stuff is happening, that people would think we were all hammered and destroy furniture and that we don't care about the Olympics. That's not true," U.S. forward Doug Weight told the San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News. Team USA was eliminated by its 4-1 loss to the Czechs Wednesday. The Americans were expected to contend for at least a silver. "We were really ticked off that we lost that game," Weight said. "That night after the game, a bunch of us and our wives and families were taken to a karaoke restaurant. We had a great time, singing and drinking a few beers. "We got back to the village real late, and we probably were too loud. Some guys were wrestling and stuff, but that's it. I know nothing about broken windows or anything like that. "As for the broken chairs, we're big guys and the chairs aren't real strong and some of them had been broken since we got here just from sitting on them to play cards. We weren't throwing furniture." USOC spokesman Mike Moran said Weight's claims about the players' weights were, in essence, weightless. "I don't believe they all were splintered by big guys," he said. Seriously, who knows what to believe from Team USA anymore? Several U.S. players dismissed reports that they had partied excessively in Nagano, but reporters spotted them out at 4 a.m. after their only victory, over Belarus. Forward Brett Hull even put his dedication on display for Baltimore's WJZ-TV at a night spot, turning the camera on himself. Hull, however, said he was in his bed at 8 p.m. eight of his 10 nights in Nagano. "It was almost ridiculous the amount of time I spent just listening to my CD player and doing crossword puzzles on my bed," he said. Crossword puzzles? Here's a clue for the clueless: Seven letters for Olympic embarrassment. T-E-A-M U-S-A. "Players are going to have fun and do whatever they like to do," forward Mike Modano said. "If the players play well, everyone forgets about it. If you lose, people will use that as an opportunity to pick at players." They came, they lost, they trashed. Pick away. If the NHL isn't furious with the Americans, it should be. The league interrupted its season for 17 days to allow its players to compete in the Olympics. Six teams featured strong NHL contingents, including semifinalists Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland and Russia. NHL commissioner Bettman said league officials believed any of those teams could win the gold medal. But a strong showing by Team USA would have stoked interest in the United States, where the NHL is expanding rapidly. Bettman acknowledged that the team's early elimination will reduce the U.S. television audience. The U.S.-Canada men's game, televised live at 11: 45 p.m. EST Sunday, received the highest ratings of any hockey broadcast in the 1990s. The American players had a special responsibility to the league, and responded by trouncing the snowboarders for the stupid-Olympic-tricks gold medal. Next time, just stay home.

  11. Told ya. Obviously they didn't draft him but they did sign him. Unbelievable.
  12. LMAO. Dude there is something wrong with you.
  13. Good read. The QB position looks to be a strength for a change. Things are looking up. I think some guys may be expecting to much to soon and should remember Rome wasn't built in a day. Given time, I think Sam will blossom into the QB we all hope he is.
  14. I think Jeremy Clark is going to open some eyes and make this team. He was rated the second best CB in the nation before his injury. He has the size to make an impact and I think he will eventually get some major playing time.
