  1. McCown might be a good hire for QB coach or an assistant OC but no way does it make sense to hand the guy a HC job with zero coordinator (or any meaningful coaching) experience. If McCown gets that job it's because he's been made a scapegoat to explain a bad season or why they had to purge Watson. If McCown has serious aspirations of coaching he shouldn't take the job if offered.
  2. I don't know why this is responsive to what I said. All of my comments have been specific to OP's statement: My point is if the GM banked on a drafted QB as the long term future of the franchise and the GM is confident after the first year the coaching staff is not developing the QB then maybe it makes sense to cut bait early and bring in a coach that can develop the QB. Flipping coaching staff and offensive systems every year isn't great either but if you know the coaching staff can't get the job done then letting the QB settle into the system isn't particularly valuable.
  3. I wasn't referring to Saleh's staff. I meant the teams dumping their coaching staff one year after drafting a QB.
  4. Sure consistency is beneficial to really the entire team but if a coaching staff has proven unsuccessful at development and does not have a clear plan to develop the QB then is that really consistency you want?
  5. It's unfair that one offense can touch the ball and end the game. Football is both an offensive and defensive game so letting a game end like that is cutting out half of the game for each time. It's the rule and teams have a hand in crafting the rule so it's not exactly forced on them.
  6. Given how the last couple minutes of regulation turned out the game was probably decided at the coin flip because either team was likely to score a TD if they got the ball. That's not really the way you want any game decided but especially not a playoff. It is somewhat unfair to have the game come down to a coin flip but I only feel so bad for a division rival.
  7. The only way NO will lure in a quality candidate is with a long contract and a long leash to suffer through a year or two of teardown and more time to rebuild. It is remotely possible that the GM can cut down the roster enough to bring in a QB and keep the team decently competitive but a decent head coach is going to want a contract that protects him from being the fall guy or pays him substantially to be the fall guy.
  8. Right--GMs cannot totally disregard the head coach and his desires in the draft. There are roster management concerns for the GM but the GM has to balance a relationship with the head coach. Even if JD thought Gase had one foot out the door by the 2020 draft JD couldn't completely ignore Gase and then have Gase hold his job another year by complaining that he wasn't given any help in the draft for his system. I'm not excusing every bad decision as a Gase influence but there is a noticeable difference in the quality of the 2020 vs. 2021 draft.
  9. These big school QBs are surrounded by NFL talent mostly playing teams with no NFL talent. It's hard to evaluate how a player will do in a league with parity when they play very few games against equally talented teams and offenses are built to give the QB easy reads and take advantage of mismatches. Waiting for a play to break down and then chuck it up to a wide open receiver isn't an NFL experience too often. They are more often strikes than home runs. A lot of these can't miss future franchise QBs are big school QBs with a good last performance of college hyped to death by their agent until
  10. Jordan is not a good person but this is silly. Dude was everywhere culturally during the height of his career. People wore Bulls and Jordan gear because it was Jordan. There were cartoons, cereal, toys, etc. Music, especially hip hop, was full of references to him and outright songs about him. The most well known sport shoe in the world continues to sport his name and image nearly two decades after he stopped playing. His reputation stumbled when he left basketball, sucked at baseball and returned in not so great shape to basketball but the 1980s-1990s before he left he was on the short list f
  11. Jones had a love affair with Garrett as a coach from the start. Phillips was not good in Dallas. For as much as I am not a McCarthy fan he at least had the team in the playoffs. But lol that ending.
  12. Could be drugs or could be alcohol. I've seen enough people arrested for DUI/DWI at night bail out in the morning. Once the person is no longer intoxicated the immediate danger to the public is gone. A well paid attorney probably answered the call overnight and got in front of a judge overnight or very early morning to bail him out. There are criminal defense firms that keep attorneys and bondsmen on call overnight for these situations. It's expensive but he can afford it.
  13. You're not making the point you think you are. The Giants spent considerably more for the players on the field than the Jets in a fairly similar division and landed the same record. The Jets lost considerably more cap space this season to IR and dead money. The Giants walk into 2022 with $45MM less in cap space than the Jets. The Giants should have a much better record for what they spent and the position they put themselves in next season.
