  1. If true, its amazing that CHI is "through with" Mack after only two years. The more teams that want to jump into the top 10 and pick QB's the better
  2. Will be interesting to see what happens with Anderson. Because in good organizations (BAL particularly) they will allow good players to leave if they get too expensive. They believe in their scouting and development and expect the player that was behind the one who left to step up and fill the position. Will Douglas have the same mindset? Because 13-15 is expensive and the draft is deep
  3. Hopefully its true, the more QB's taken in the top 10 means someone drops to us at 11
  4. He's young with a good frame for a CB. And based on his stats he's durable, a good tackler and has had 10+ PBU every year: https://www.espn.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/2572841/james-bradberry
  5. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001101880/article/bucky-brooks-top-5-2020-nfl-draft-prospects-by-position-10
  6. At minimum his suspension should've been 8 games. He should sit for the first 2 games next year. Weak
  7. "Strength of schedule" is an NCAA thing not an NFL thing. Perfect example is NE last game against a "weak" MIA team. They played at Foxboro with a #2 seed and a bye at stake. And they lost, no one in their right mind thought that would happen. There are no fractional wins in the NFL they all count the same
  8. Agreed!!! Bienemy has had a lot of interviews over the the past two years (Jets included) and hasn't been close to getting a HC job. Why??? He either doesn't interview well or isn't really the OC
  9. If we pick up a free agent pass rusher or one in the draft I wouldn't mind bringing in Leonard Floyd to see if we could catch lightning in a bottle
  10. Enough already!!! This "Gase hate" is beyond boring now. After going 6-2 in the second half of the season he's not going anywhere. He's going to get at least another year to prove he's the answer or the problem. With that being the case how about "football writers" actually write about football???
  11. Some interesting names: https://www.si.com/nfl/2020/02/10/super-bowl-liv-kansas-city-chiefs-breakdown-of-key-defensive-plays The next phase of the NFL offseason is one that can get a little ugly: It’s time for teams to look at the bottom line and decide which players aren’t worth the freight anymore. Some cuts could come as early as this week. More will land during the combine, and some won’t happen until free agency starts. But they’re coming and, to prepare, teams are compiling watch lists of guys that could be on the chopping block. And I went to some of those teams to collect names. So here, then, is our own Watch List. Bengals QB Andy Dalton (cap savings if cut: $17.7 million): Zac Taylor’s plan is to be upfront and honest with Dalton, and the truth is that the team has to weigh the idea of having the outgoing franchise quarterback as the bridge to the next one. The Giants made it work last year, so the idea of it isn’t exactly unprecedented. Broncos QB Joe Flacco (cap savings: $12.25 million): The expectation, as of right now, is that Drew Lock will enter the spring as the team’s starter, making Flacco, due $20.25 million in cash in 2020, way too expensive to keep around as a backup. Panthers QB Cam Newton (cap savings: $17.1 million): Carolina has been steadfast in saying that any decision on Newton will have to wait until there’s a clearer picture of his health. And the Panthers probably won’t have that until he’s recovered from his January surgery—probably sometime in March. Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (cap savings: $3.5 million): Freeman’s issues since signing his deal in 2017 (he hasn’t posted a 1,000-yard season since and averaged 3.6 yards per carry in 2019) are another cautionary tale on paying backs. Atlanta will have to carry $6 million in dead money. But given their cap situation, every dollar counts. Titans RB Dion Lewis (cap savings: $4.04 million): The emergence of Derrick Henry marginalized Lewis’ role and made his 2020 cap charge of $5.16 million a non-starter. Lewis turns 30 in September and might have his best chance to latch on with another Patriot-connected coach (Detroit? Giants?). 49ers RB Jerrick McKinnon (cap savings: $4.8 million): Thanks to a 2018 ACL injury and resulting complications, McKinnon still has yet to make his Niners debut, and the team has paid him more than $15 million over those two years. It’s not hard to see the writing on the wall here. Cardinals RB David Johnson (cap savings: n/a): And I say not available based on the fact that Johnson’s $10.2 million base salary for 2020 has already vested. That makes it pretty unlikely the team would cut him, even though he’s disappointed since signing his deal. If they could trade him? That’s a different story, and I’d guess they would consider that. Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (cap savings: $14 million): This feels like a cost-of-doing-business thing for the Chiefs. They overpaid on Watkins because he was a good fit for their young quarterback in 2018, and that young QB was on a rookie deal. Now, Mahomes is about to get paid, they need room—and they have Watkins’ younger, cheaper replacement (Mecole Hardman) on hand. Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (cap savings: $9.5 million): Wilson had 351 yards and a single touchdown last year, so this is a relatively simple decision. Could Wilson go back to KC and take Watkins’s roster spot? Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (cap savings: $5.25 million): Lee finished the season with three catches and on IR, and he has been a massive disappointment since signing a four-year, $34 million deal prior to the 2018 season. Buccaneers TE Cameron Brate (cap savings: $6 million): The Bucs have worked hard to develop OJ Howard, and Bruce Arians’s offense just isn’t that tight end–friendly. That makes paying Brate starters’ money a little difficult, even if he remains a good player. Bears TE Trey Burton (cap savings: $5.05 million): Chicago has a tight cap situation, and Burton’s coming off a rough year that ended on IR. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Bears conduct a complete overhaul at his position. Packers TE Jimmy Graham (cap savings: $8 million): It’s not like Graham can’t play anymore; his production just no longer matches his financials. As a sidebar: It’d be fun to see him back in New Orleans. Bengals OL Cordy Glenn (cap savings: $6.3 million): This one’s fairly easy. Glenn doesn’t want to be there. Jonah Williams is coming back. Glenn is gone. Broncos G Ron Leary (cap savings: $8.5 million): Leary has missed 19 games in three years as a Bronco. That, and his big number, exposes him—though he should be able to find work quickly in a lineman-needy NFL. Browns DE Olivier Vernon (cap savings: $11.5 million): Sacks aren’t everything, but it’s tough to carry a pass-rusher about to turn 30 at over $15 million coming off a season in which he had just 3.5 of them. Jaguars DL Marcell Dareus (cap savings: $13.2 million): The former third overall pick finished the season on IR, turns 30 in March, and plays for a team working through cap issues. Dareus can still play. He just probably won’t be doing it for the Jags. Panthers DL Dontari Poe (cap savings: $10 million): This is pretty straightforward. Barring a pay cut, it’s hard to see Poe back for Matt Rhule’s first year in charge. Vikings DE Everson Griffen (cap savings: $13.8 million): Griffen’s been a great Viking, but he has endured a tough couple years and is 32 years old. He has gas left in the tank—he had eight sacks last year—but Minnesota’s troublesome cap situation would make it tough to bring him back even with a pay cut. Giants LB Alec Ogletree (cap savings: $10.4 million): It may be tough for a new coach to walk away from a team captain, but Ogletree is paid like a top-five off-ball linebacker despite not playing like one. OT Nate Solder is another name that came up when I asked around, but my sense is that he’ll make it to 2020 on roster, based on the logistics of his contract, the team’s depth at his position and his background with new coach Joe Judge. Browns LB Christian Kirksey (cap savings: $7.45 million): Kirksey played in nine games the last two years. So that should be that. Steelers LB Vince Williams (cap savings: $969K): Yeah, it’s not much savings. But Pittsburgh is not paying $4 million in cash for some they just turned into a part-timer. Bears LB Leonard Floyd: The Bears thought a breakout season was coming from Floyd in 2019. Instead, he finished with three sacks. I’m sure GM Ryan Pace and coach Matt Nagy would like to give the former top-10 pick another year. The trouble, for the cap-strapped Bears, is that his $13.2 million lump-sum option for 2020 would be an easy place to yield a significant amount of financial breathing room. Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes (cap savings: $8.1 million): Maybe Rhodes can turn it around in his 30s. But he’s been trending downward for a couple years now, and he was the subject of trade discussions last spring. He’s due $10.5 million in 2020. He won’t be making that much in Minnesota, no matter how shaky their corner situation is. Jets CB Trumaine Johnson (cap savings: $3 million): His contract was perhaps the biggest misstep of the Mike Maccagnan era in New York. How big? Cutting him means taking on $12 million in dead money. And it remains a no-brainer. Redskins CB Josh Norman (cap savings: $12.5 million): Norman had his best years playing for Rivera, and the two have a good relationship. Whether they can work out a deal for him to stay at a lower number remains to be seen. Saints CB Janoris Jenkins (cap saving: $11.25 million): With a lot of moving pieces at corner, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Saints make a play to keep Jenkins. But I can’t imagine it will be at $11.25 million. In fact, when New Orleans claimed him in December it was under the premise that it was, at most, a two-month rental, because of his big 2020 number. Dolphins S Reshad Jones (cap savings: $7.495 million): Injuries limited Jones to four games last year. It’s not the first time he’s been banged up, making his number (nearly $16 million) just too high.
  12. Intrigued by the Guardian WR's. McGloin's arm is so weak they've had to make some interesting/tough catches
  13. Game play has been crisp (shockingly), penalties have been few, the crowds have been into it and the games have been entertaining. Good start
  14. I agree on Anae. Also Josh Uche from Michigan really showed out at the Senior Bowl: https://www.espn.com/college-football/player/_/id/4046528/josh-uche In fact Anae and Uche were on the same team and were taking turns sacking the QB's
  15. Good analysis!!! People will just trash Edoga's whole year but he was very promising at RT. Go look at the DAL game and how he shut down Demarcus Lawrence. When he switched to LT he looked like a totally different (and poor) player. He needs to get healthy and continue to develop, if he's only going to be a RT I'm fine with that. But he needs to earn it, Douglas/Gase shouldn't just hand him the job like they did with Kalil
  16. Excellent production at a big school in a big conference: https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/kenny-willekes-1.html His draft position will probably be decided by the athletic ability and speed he shows at the Combine and whether he can stand up and play OLB
  17. I could see a team that wants the 4th QB (Love or Eason) or the WR that is still on the board (Jeudy or Lamb) wanting to move to #11. We could drop down get more picks and select an edge rusher
  18. If the Jets are going to be "very active" in free agency as Pauline said I hope Douglas plans to fix the OLine before the draft. That would free him up to sit at #11 and take the BPA or be aggressive in moving down and acquiring more picks
  19. https://www.profootballnetwork.com/tony-pauline-mailbag-cba-update-jets-plans-young-overrated/ Tony, who are your favorite fits for the New York Jets in this draft? We know they want to upgrade the offensive line and if one of the big four (Wills, Thomas, Becton, or Wirfs) is there, do you think they draft him? Who would be good fits for Adam Gase in rounds 2-5? I prefer Andrew Thomas by a longshot, but I don’t think he gets out of the top ten. After that, I prefer Tristan Wirfs but Mekhi Becton would be a better fit for Adam Gase’s offense. However, is Becton worth a top-15 pick? On my board, the answer is no. I don’t think Jerick Wills is a good fit at all for the Jets. As far as the Jets, the draft, and the offensive line (and even receiver), we’ll have a clearer picture after we see their moves in free agency. Speaking of which… Have you heard of any players the Jets may target in free agency or the draft? I made mention of Joe Thuney last week and the only additional information I have is people tell me the Jets are giving signals they will be very active in the free-agent market. I do know the Jets like Anthony McFarland, the running back from Maryland, and this makes complete sense. He is a perfect fit for their offense. Last year I took a ton of heat after saying Le’Veon Bell was not a good fit for Gase’s offense as he’s more an inside power gap runner versus the outside zone runner Gase wanted – think Telvin Coleman, for example. McFarland is a great fit for the outside zone scheme and I expect him to run super-fast at the combine. The Jets have two picks in the third round so you can draw your own conclusions at this point.
  20. Beyond stupid, he shouldn't be allowed to write about football ever again
  21. Wouldn't mind offering him a one year deal with a low base salary and incentives. He's fallen off from early in his career so he has to prove he's worth more than that
  22. Also remember Mahomes missed weeks with his knee injury. If he twisted his knee worse and blew out his ACL there's no way KC are champs right now
  23. Nothing is promised. There's no one on earth who thought after last year's SB appearance that the LAR wouldn't even make the playoffs this year. When you get that far in the playoffs you better win, you may never make it back
