  1. Lets put it this way, he has the potential to be the best QB from his draft class, but may never realize his potential for various reasons.
  2. Yes and No, its still a first impression and first impressions are long lasting. Secondly if a man does not have any poise at the podium you have to at least question his ability to command a locker room. Lastly if you are a goof ball in ur intro presser - you are just that, see Willie Randolph (showed up to his press conference wearing jeans and a kmart sweatshirt) and Mickey Calloway (Love, Love, Love and yet, more Love). Another thing about first impressions - Boomer has repeated several times how the first time Kotite spoke to the team he said something like , i dont care what you do as long as you show up on Sunday, and that is exactly what the players did - nothing all week, played hard on Sunday until they were exhausted due to poor conditioning. Gase's problem at his presser- he was so wired on caffeine and g-d know what else he looked a a pinata filled with Vinegar and Baking Soda.
  3. I'm not a fan, he's a good route runner, has decent speed and good hands, yet there has always been something about him that to me isnt right. It seems his effort is bi-polar like - some games he's electric, while others he looks like he's just going through the motions and cant wait to go home. I hate the thought of trying to protect Darnold with rookies, hasnt he been through enough already? Most of our cap space should be spent on the two best OL that Douglas can recruit. Draft a WRs in rnd 1 and rnd 5, EDGE Rnd 2, G and CB rnd 3, RB rnd 4...and yes Mr. Douglas must hit on every pick.
  4. I dont want either, especially considering the salary they will command. I think Laviska Shenault will turn out to be the best WR in this draft and he should be available at 11, The two best OTs will be gone before 11 and that leaves Austin Jackson who I am not high on and Becton - who is intriguing but certainly not a value pick at 11 as he has a lot to learn.
  5. I do believe Brady is leaving the Pats - Chris Collingsworth basically said its decided according to his knowledge. So the question is who will be the Pats QB in 2020? Stidham has talent but is prolly far from ready for showtime. Consequently can you picture Eli Manning becoming the Pats starter in 2020?
  6. Both Brady and Brees looked old. Brees looked a lot like post injury Pennington - just cant get enough on the ball to throw sideline or deep middle routes. I'd grade both on a slight curve tho, as both were short on targets and the Titans and Vikings essentially took Edelman and Thomas out of each game and there were no other reliable targets to throw to. Having said that, I think Brady has more left than Brees and Bress should consider retirement. Once the Texans made adjustments and shut down the Bills run game, Allen looked like garbage in the 2nd half and cost his team a victory by being unable to make accurate throws to open receivers. Losing Wentz basically ended the Eagles chances - McCown painted a nice stat sheet but he was off target a lot and therefore cost the team yards after the catch opportunities and he most likely left a lot of points on the field. His decision to try and run 8 yards to the end zone at the end was not a wise one considering he's not fast and he looked like he strained a hammy. Nevertheless,what a performance by Clowney, if he played like that every game he would be worth a huge contract - but how can you trust him considering all the plays and entire games he has taken "off" in the past.
  7. It was great watching Belichick get po'd, but TBH they should adjust the rules and make any dead ball penalty that is deemed intentional into a 15yd unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against the team committing the penalty, Its bush league and annoying.
  8. Hence we need speed at ILB - another reason to ditch Williamson and hope that Cashman is the man.
  9. If Douglas pay $10M for a backup QB I will personally murder him. If Okudah falls to the Jets and he picks him, same. 1st round pick must be an LT, EDGE or a WR - no exceptions.
  10. Texans 20 Bills 16 NE 30 Titans 13 NO 44 Minn 24 Phil 34 Sea 31
  11. He gets $6M per year at OK, what if JJ offered him a 5 year $60M contract?
  12. Their team was poorly coached, unmotivated and undisciplined. If they bring in a competent coach who can handle the personalities on the team then we'll see what they can do.
  13. JJ finally wised up. I would not be surprised if Lincoln Riley ends up there.
  14. Hell no, unless you are content with playing cover-2. I dont trust Austin's health - tho I do believe if healthy he has the ability to be above average. Maulet and Hairston cant play bump n run. Reasonably speaking - we need one elite edge rusher, one elite LT, one elite OG. one elite WR and one #2 WR, and one elite CB. Eunuwa has spinal stenosis - he's done and a fool if he tries to ever play football again. If he does he will herniate a disk again. Positions we are set with: DL, ILB, S and FS, and TE.
  15. Bell was never Shady McCoy - he's never been speedy, he's like Blair Thomas with a brain - he needs to have a paved path to run through and once he gets going, he's a downhill runner who is hard to tackle due to power and moves. Bell ran a 4.6/40 at the combine, for comparison, Saquon ran a 4.4, Nick Chubb ran a 4.5, Leonard Fournette ran a 4.5, Dalvin Cook ran a 4.5, McCaffrey ran a 4.48, Bell is slow relative to an elite back...and yes 1 tenth of a second in a 40yd dash is a big difference.
  16. Its more than just interceptions bro - Darnold's inaccuracy and misreads have not improved. I am hoping an improved OL and WRs will help the jitters go away.
  17. What if JD deemed that what was offered for Robby was not enough to overcome the opportunity cost of losing Sam's best target. Also, say if only a 4th was offered could it be JD felt we would get a compensatory pick for losing Robby that was barely worse than what we would have gotten in a trade?
  18. This reality of Sam being a mature version of Mark Sanchez just ruined my Holidays. I had always hoped he was an intelligent football junkie and his poor decisions were more due to poor play design or read errors by the WR. My denial is now over.
  19. OK, shud have done more due diligence, we are screwed as far as Anderson and Enuwa (unless Enuwa retires) and also of course Johnson - but there's really no choice as far as Johnson goes. However cutting Williamson, Roberts, Johnson and Winters will save us $20M so that gives us $73M to play with, maybe we can restructure Anderson and Crowder to save a few more million. I still say #1 priority is OT and #2 is Edge, if we fill those two (well four players) needs in FA, draft a plug in Guard, an elite WR (and yes either Lamb or Jeudy shud be available when we pick, otherwise I love the kid from Colorado (Lavisk Shenault) or even Tee Higgins from Clemson - neither of whom I wud mind reaching for) we should be a playoff team in 2020. Looking at the draft - 3 of the top 10 should be QBs (Burrow, Tua and Herbert), 2 of the the top 10 should be DL/Edge, (Chase Young and AJ Epenesa), 2 shud be OTs (Wirfs and Thomas), Mix in Lamb or Jeudy and that shut down CB Okudah, ur up to 9 already. You have 4 teams in the top ten who need QBs: Bengals, Chargers, Dolphins and Jaguars -thats why I say 3 will go in the top ten and dont discount the possibility of the Raiders trading up into the top ten to grab a QB (I've read that Gruden loves Herbert). Could it even be a bizarre outcome where Fromm or Eason skyrocket into the top 10?
  20. With all due respect, it was not intended to be a prediction and I do not claim to be a psychic. I am just stating what I wish to happen and I do not believe by any means is it a moonshot. As for grabbing the top FA OTs, yes those two (Conklin and Costanzo) are the top two OTs - but there's also Bryan Beluga and DJ Humphries who are not far behind - why cant we get two of the four? As for CB, I think Bradburry is about the 4th best available, with Marcus Peters, Byron Jones and Chris Harris rated better. As for OLB/EDGE, equal and perhaps better than Dupree and Judon are Jadeveon Clowney, Shaq Barrett, Dante Fowler Jr, Kyle Van Noy and Whitney Mercilus - why cant we get 2 of the 7? As for keeping Willimason, he and CJ will count $26M against the cap next year - IMO that is poor utilization of capital - too much $ tied up in a non-premium position.. The CAP is projected to rise to about $200M more than 10% invested in ILB SMH. CB, EDGE and OT are where we need to allocate CAP $$$. Obviously CJ is much more talented than Williamson and I believe they pose an equal risk as far as health goes, so you keep Mosely and trade or cut Williamson. I actually wud prefer to pair someone with CJ who is faster than a guy coming off an ACL who wasn't fast to begin with. Cashman and Burgess both flashed a lot of potential this year - imagine pairing either of them with CJ? Avery may in fact be very tradable since 2020 is the final year of his contract @ $8.5M. I want to keep Roberts for depth, you cannot assume Bless Austin will be healthy, and we need to groom the draft pick, rarely is a 3rd rnd CB plug n play. I feel that Roberts is way better than Maulet, Canady or Hairston (tho thats not saying much). Again keep in mind the goal of making the playoffs next year and having a CB with elite speed who knows the defensive schemes will prove beneficial. If we are short on CAP $ then fine, cut Roberts and replace him with one of the three incumbents or a UFA. When it comes to protecting Sam, I feel its foolish to hope for potential in what wud be the 3rd or 4th best OT. IMO only Thomas and Wirfs are "sure things" and all the mocks have them going in the top 10. I dont want to take an OT at 10-15 (even losing on Sunday most likely does not get us in the top 10) who will not be ready to play effectively. Additionally after what Sam has been through the last two years - do you want anything but a sure thing at the Tackle spots - we dont have the luxury of drafting an OT who will take a season or so to learn - you do that and next year is just another rebuilding year that postpones Sam's development and then we go into the final year of Sam's contract still not knowing.... Also for a QB like Sam, I feel the OTs are the most important OL as they can seal the edges as to allow Sam to roll out when pressure comes up the middle. As of this moment - we currently have $53M in cap space for 2020, if we can save another $30M by cutting/trading the said players we shud have enough $ to do what I laid out.
  21. If Sam doesnt get mono and if CJ doesnt get hurt, this is a mediocre team already - should have been an 8/9 win team with this roster. I'll even go as far as saying if we don't sign Kahlil that gives us another win right there. If we draft competently and spend wisely we should contend for the playoffs next year, meaning our goal if we add the right pieces is 10 wins considering the schedule. Blowing it up would mean only one thing - giving up on Darnold. You cannot develop a QB with a sandlot caliber OL and below average weapons. Hopefully Douglas understands how to draft and how to value players. We cannot select an OT at #10 (assuming thats where we end up picking) unless that OL is a franchise LT - which will not be available - so the value pick will most likely be a WR. My free agent targets: OT Anthony Costanzo OT Jack Conklin OLB Matthew Judon OLB Bud Dupree CB James Bradburry Must re-sign Robby, Poole and Lewis Cut Williamson, Winters, Henry Anderson, McClendon, and obviously Trumaine Johnson. Roster: QB Darnold QB Draft Pick (4th or 5th round, serves as future insurance for Darnold) Jordan Love? RB Bell (untradable) RB Powell (showed enough to give him one more year) RB Josh Adams TE Griffin TE Herndon TE Wesco WR Lamb WR Robby WR Crowder WR Draft Pick LT Conklin G Lewis C Harrison G Draft Pick RT Costanzo DE Phillips NT Fatukasi DE Williams OLB Dupree ILB CJ ILB Cashman/Burgess OLB Judon CB Austin S Maye S Adams CB Bradburry CB Poole CB Roberts CB Draft Pick Draft Rnd 1 WR Rnd 2 OG Rnd 3 CB Rnd 3 C Rnd 4 WR/KR Rnd 5 QB Rnd 6 RB
  22. He was done after the knee injury, we lucked out when Shiano decided he needed him and we got a #1 pick. He stunk in TB and he blamed it on their scheme, then in NE BB put him in zone most of the time. Typical Jets move to blindly sign him from NE
