  1. Playoff team next year?

    agree we likely will not get darnold or rosen, mayfield will be within reach I believe cousins- agree bradford- agree, also too much injury risk jackson- not sold on him, esp in first round. maybe with our second 2nd round pick if he is still there would add Bridgewater as a possibilty if available- he is intriguing, has experience, is younger than petty. Would still draft a qb though. Not sold on teddy's arm strength. would also consider later round fliers on luke falk and/or riley ferguson from memphis.
  2. only 2 games left after upcoming debacle in New Orleans. Just keep fat mo inactive for rest of season, if he gets hurt then we can't cut him.
  3. I posted the article with quote highlighted above😲
  4. ESPN Jets 2-7, 0-5 Away 3 Final 1 2 3 4 T NYJ 0 3 0 0 3 CAR 7 3 0 20 Panthers force six turnovers, get sixth straight win Nov 13, 2005 Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- When the Carolina Panthers handed cornerback Ken Lucas a $36.5 million free-agent contract, more than a few eyebrows were raised -- even inside their own locker room. But Lucas is steadily earning his pay, reeling in two game-changing interceptions Sunday to help the Panthers to a 30-3 victory over the stumbling New York Jets. "He earns that contract every day," safety Mike Minter said. "That is the type of player we needed in our secondary. His interceptions changed the complexion of the game." Lucas' picks started a rash of turnovers -- four of which came on consecutive New York possessions, to help the Panthers (7-2) pull away for their sixth-straight victory. The Jets (2-7) finished with six turnovers that Carolina converted into 20 points. Will Witherspoon returned an interception 35 yards for a touchdown and Chris Gamble had an interception and a fumble recovery -- but none were as important as Lucas' two plays. Carolina led 10-3 when Brooks Bollinger, the fourth quarterback this season for the injury-ravaged Jets, moved New York to the Carolina 24. He had an open shot at the end zone when Laveranues Coles blew past Lucas, but Coles had to wait for Bollinger's pass -- which hung in the air long enough for Lucas to catch up and jump in front of him for an interception in the end zone. "He beat me on that, but I didn't quit on the play," Lucas said. "I took it away from him and they kind of gave up after that because they felt they couldn't score. "It's good when you get a team to quit on you." Bollinger, who was sacked four times, threw four interceptions and finished 11-of-21 for 98 yards, insisted the Jets didn't give up. "I wasn't going to back down -- we were still in the game," he said. "But obviously from there it didn't go my way. I made some bad decisions but mostly just bad throws. "And they didn't miss any beats. They made the plays when they had the chance." The Panthers didn't score after Lucas' first pick, but got another chance on New York's next possession when Bollinger was again picked off by Lucas, giving the Panthers the ball at the New York 34. That turnover put a spark in Carolina's defense on a day when the Panthers' offense wasn't nearly as efficient as it had been the last two weeks. Carolina didn't squander its second chance, handing it off eight times before Stephen Davis finally punched it in on a 1-yard score. It was Davis' 12th touchdown of the season, and gave the Panthers a 17-3 lead with 13:25 to go. New York then fell apart. Justin Miller fumbled away the ensuing kickoff and Gamble recovered to set up a field goal by John Kasay that made it 20-3. Bollinger seemed rattled under pressure and threw his third pick -- to Gamble -- on the next series to set up Kasay's third field goal. "We were like `Gee Whiz!' they are just snatching the balls out of the air," said Carolina defensive end Mike Rucker. Bollinger could do nothing right from there, and was picked off for a fourth time by Witherspoon, who ran it in for the score. "It's almost unbelievable, you sit there and say, 'This is not happening,' " said New York running back Curtis Martin. "It seems like it didn't stop." Carolina's strong defensive showing helped the Panthers win on a day in which star receiver Steve Smith was a non-factor. Jets cornerback Ty Law played Smith tough all day, holding him to three catches for 34 yards. New York's defense also limited Davis to 81 yards rushing. But behind the inexperienced Bollinger, New York's offense was stuck in neutral. Martin was held to 75 yards rushing. The Jets had 214 yards total offense. New York coach Herman Edwards seemed defeated afterward, defensive about Bollinger's play and the effort his injury-plagued team is giving. "That's a young quarterback, he doesn't have a lot of experience, he's doing as good as he can do," Edwards said. "That's all you can ask of any of these guys. If you have a problem with that, it's too bad." ^Notes:@ Jets right tackle Jason Fabini tore his left pectoral muscle in the first quarter and will miss the rest of the season. He was replaced by Scott Gragg, who gave up a sack to Kindal Moorehead shortly after entering the game. ... Martin lost a fumble in the second quarter, his first since the eighth game of the 2003 season -- a span of 863 carries. ... Nine of Davis' 12 TDs have been on 1-yard runs. ... Jake Delhomme was intercepted twice.
  5. Never heard a coach admit that he quit before, but I remember herm doing the same thing vs the panthers a few years ago. Jets were getting blown out and he just ran the ball for almost the entire second half. A panther player was quoted after the game saying it felt good to beat a team so badly they would just give up. Herm denied it though.
  6. Baker Mayfield

    Oh man this would be a disgusting pick. A LB smaller than darron lee in the first round? With mayfield still available?? Just the thought of this makes me want to grab my pitchfork and torch right now!!
  7. Breer's Draft Column

    agree. Mayfield reminds me of Deshaun Watson (watson had no character issues however). Mayfield is shorter than the usual QB prospects and scouts are holding that against him. Scouts felt watson's arm strength accuracy were lacking. Both of them have been very productive in college and team leaders. If mayfield plays well in the college playoffs, draft him in first round. I would consider also drafting luke falk or perhaps riley ferguson in rounds 3 or later to further augment the position. I would not draft allen any higher than 4th round. He is playing vs very inferior competition and is struggling. How will he perform vs the best of the best in the NFL? People compare him to Wentz but he won championships and dominated at the same level.

    On the other hand jetnation members SHOULD have a say in who we draft. We would have a solid team if they listened to us!
  9. Fat mo is next to go and hopefully Leo and Adams along with Davis will take over the defense from a leadership perspective.
  10. If jets don't blow 14pt 4th qtr lead vs miami and had showed up in Tampa vs fitz they would be 7-5 and in good position for the playoffs.
  11. What do we do with Mo?

    paycut for mo or he can take his fat, lazy, tardy butt elsewhere.
  12. McAdoo & Reese Fired

    right here http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/12/04/jerry-reese-gets-the-boot-in-new-york-as-well/ Jerry Reese gets the boot in New York as well Posted by Darin Gantt on December 4, 2017, 11:44 AM EST Getty Images In this case, “plural” means the top two jobs in the Giants football operation. Via Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network, General Manager Jerry Reese has been let go as well as coach Ben McAdoo, making it a clean sweep. Reese has been on the job since 2007, replacing Ernie Accorsi in that post. But recent years have seen declining home-grown talent on the roster, and last year’s splurge on defensive free agents was clearly a desperate move. It bought them a year and a playoff berth, but the Giants are not in a good spot for the long haul, lacking a young quarterback to build around or substantial salary cap room.
  13. Agreed, Robby Anderson has really progressed this year and I think McCown has really helped him. Petty had his chance last yr and he pretty much stunk plus he kept getting hurt. Hackenberg got plenty of the reps in the preseason and looked so bad it made my eyes bleed. jets will bring McCown back and draft a qb next yr.
  14. Jaguar's release Calvin Pryor

    Go figure, no role in the nfl for a strong safety who can’t tackle, can’t cover, is always hurt, and punches his teammates.
