  1. For those who don't know, Gase worked under Martz in DET: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Martz
  2. I wouldn't expect either to be OC I would want them to have a title like Asst. HC Offense. I know Gase is never giving up calling plays but he needs someone "senior" to keep him focused
  3. I'm digging Tyler Johnson of MIN. Good size, excellent production but with so many other "sexy" WR's it feels like he'll slip through the cracks to the 3rd round. https://www.espn.com/college-football/player/stats/_/id/246044/tyler-johnson He gives off a Jerricho Cotchery vibe
  4. Either Mike Martz or Bill Callahan would be terrific additions to the offensive staff. Martz is already out there and Callahan just got released: https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/28403414/redskins-officially-name-ron-rivera-coach-make-jack-del-rio-dc Bill Callahan went 3-8 the rest of the way. Callahan won't return to the Redskins under Rivera, a source told ESPN's John Keim. Callahan was Washington's offensive line coach in 2015 and 2016 and was assistant head coach/offensive line coach from 2017 to 2019. It would also be proof that Gase is serious about improving
  5. Smith has shown flashes but not enough that you can trust him to replace Anderson. But I have a feeling that Douglas is going to put a certain value on Anderson and if he doesn't take it they'll look to promote Smith. Smith has a better frame and doesn't shy away from the "dirty" routes in the middle of the field but it will be a risk
  6. Probably a "friend" of Mehta trying to cover for him. The Barstool article about this earlier in the thread really exposes everything
  7. So true!!! Unfortunate that people have become so jaded that they don't care about truth and accuracy anymore
  8. I wonder what the Jets will do about this. They shouldn't make a statement but if I was Chris Johnson I would have my legal department go after the Daily News. I mean what's next for Mehta, he'll post a picture of him with a black eye saying Gase hit him???
  9. Douglas will provide 20 minutes of "GM speak" and I won't care. Its all about him finally shaping the roster the way he wants it. And he's not going to share that with the public until free agency in March
  10. Austin and Maulet both have to prove more but they definitely should be part of the CB corps next year along with Poole
  11. Bingo!!! Do owners really think he became honest all of a sudden?
  12. Would like to keep Anderson but I would use that 13-15 million in free agency towards the OLine or pass rusher. Then look to the draft for a long term WR (Jeudy or Lamb)
  13. Newsflash, TEN has the same record as they did in 2018 with Mariota & Gabbert as QB's: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_Tennessee_Titans_season#Schedule A devastating running game is what carries them
  14. Stating the obvious that a running game getting 5 yards a pop makes the QB's job easier is not supporting Gase. Its called football 101
  15. Breer sums up Tannehill's performance perfectly: https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/12/30/nfl-playoffs-49ers-seahawks-eagles-titans-coach-firings-week-17-mmqb No longer saddled with the expectations that come with being the eighth overall pick, Tannehill is thriving playing sidecar to Henry in the Titans’ offense. On Sunday, his passer rating exceeded 130 for the sixth time in seven weeks, which is staggering efficiency from a quarterback the Dolphins hauled out to the street corner with a “For Sale” sign earlier this year. “If you can run the football, you’re going to win a lot of games in this league. I think that’s been proven over the years, especially in the playoffs,” Tannehill said. “It’s something that we’ve believed in from day one—everything starts up there, and we’ll build off that with play action dropbacks and get our guys who are really explosive the ball on the outside.”
  16. Good job by Tannehill but his effectiveness is all about Henry and their running game. When you get 4-5 yards every time you hand the ball off it takes tons of pressure off the QB's shoulders
  17. The word that sums up 2019 is "uneven". A 1-7 first half followed by a 6-2 second half is the perfect illustration of the word. Sure there were reasons for the bad start and Gase deserves credit for rallying the team in the second half. But the concerns on whether Gase is the right HC remain, particularly: - Why was the running game so inept all year? - Why couldn't he unlock and utilize a weapon like Bell all year? - Why were there so many offensive "brown outs"? - Will he add an older offensive coach to his staff to help him mature in his play calling?
  18. People get wrapped up in "names" and think that will make a team successful. Remember how some were projecting them to be in the SB???
  19. No shock. Kitchens was never more than an OC and that was only for half a season for CLE in 2018. He was never qualified for the HC spot, they should've kept Williams. Thankfully for the Jets they didn't
  20. In a game that was EXTREMELY hard to watch and had a pre-season feel to it, the Jets ended the season with a 13-6 win over BUF. A torrential downpour, odd play calls and some questionable plays that weren't challenged highlighted an ugly game. The Jets end the season with a 6-2 second half and now for the first time since taking the GM job in May, Joe Douglas can put his stamp on the team. Can he and his staff properly construct a roster to end the playoff drought in 2020? We'll see, but before Douglas takes center stage let's take a look at the last game: Special Teams - Nothing special in the return game from either Braxton Berrios or Vyncint Smith - Lachlan Edwards was mediocre as he had a 43 yard average on 5 punts - Sam Ficken was his usual inconsistent self as he was 2/4 on FG's. Let's face it at best he gets an invite to camp next year and will have to battle for the spot. He's just not reliable at this point Defense - Solid finish to the season by a unit that "punched above their weight" all year. They held BUF backups to no TD's and generated three turnovers which should've been four if not for an awful replay overturn. Tarell Basham had a textbook strip sack of Matt Barkley that for some unknown reason was ruled an incomplete pass - Arthur Maulet had his best game as he finished with 7 tackles, 2 TFL, 1 PBU and an INT. Credit to him for his improved tackling because he was a "whiffer" in earlier games. I don't know if he can be a starter going forward but at minimum he should be a depth CB - Steve McLendon (2 TFL) and Foley Fatukasi did an excellent job of timing BUF center's snaps all game. They had BUF snap counts timed so well that it seemed they were offsides multiple times but weren't. Totally destroyed BUF blocking schemes - James Burgess finished his season on a high note as he had his "usual" 9 tackles, TFL, PBU and an INT. With CJ Mosley and Blake Cashman coming back next year you wonder where/how Gregg Williams will deploy him? - Even though the refs "stole" a sack from him Tarell Basham still had an impact game with 2 tackles, 2 PBU, QB Hit and a fumble recovery - Free agent to be Jordan Jenkins finished with 3 tackles, 1 sack, 2 TFL, PBU, FF and a QB Hit. Jenkins finished with a career high 8 sacks, he's basically a 2019 version of Calvin Pace. The key in the off-season is Joe Douglas needs to add a "twitchy" edge rusher opposite him to take the unit to another level Offense - Poor performance by the offense as they left at least 10 points on the field (2 missed FG and settling for a FG on an underthrown TD). And Adam Gase had some odd decisions to say the least: * Running the wildcat on 3rd and 2 on the first drive of the game with LeVeon Bell for no yards * Not challenging the INT Sam Darnold threw. BUF CB was "face guarding" Jamison Crowder and hit him just before he reached for the ball * The series after Jordan Jenkins forced a fumble, they ran twice into the middle for no yards then a pass for 5 yards then punted. No change of possession "shot down the field" - Considering the OLine had to incorporate two new guards (Brent Qvale and Ben Braden) they did a decent job in pass protection. But as usual they didn't provide consistent holes in the run game - Awful job by Daniel Brown in pass protection. Too many "whiffs" allowed too many hits on Sam Darnold - Jamison Crowder did his usual "chain moving" with 8 catches for 66 yards and the game's only TD - I think this was the first time Sam Darnold played in the rain and he needs to learn from it. Because he struggled with his accuracy as multiple times he came up short on throws that he usually makes in his sleep. And he cost himself a TD on an underthrow to a wide open Daniel Brown. Considering the downpour Darnold's numbers were alright (23/36, 199 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT) but a glove on his throwing hand may be the way to go next time
  21. Credibility and Mehta should never be in the same sentence
  22. Good names!!! I believe Haeg used to play with Wentz at ND State
  23. More questions: - Are there any OLinemen currently on the roster they think can start next year? - Why has the running game struggled all year? a. OLine not good? b. OLine injuries? c. Scheme? d. Bell lost a step?
  24. Will Douglas try to fix the OLine in free agency then go BPA in the draft?
  25. Much respect @Samtorobby47, always appreciate an employee keeping the fans informed!!!
