  1. Key vs Turay?

    I like Turay, but .... Key. All day. An interesting point about Key is that he was a teammate of Jamal Adams. Whatever the deal is with Key behind the scenes, I'm fairly confident that Adams has shared some intel with the staff about the former.
  2. Gil Brandt’s latest draft predictions

    Last night, I was watching some of the replays of prior drafts (NFL network was playing them). Not to beat a dead horse, but it was surprising that even when some of the teams are on the clock, the draft coverage guys had no idea what was going to happen. Bears trading up to number 2 last year was the best example. Mayock swore it was for Solomon Thomas, Daniel Jeremiah had it between Thomas, Lattimore and Adams. No one mentioned Trubisky. Trubisky gets picked and, when they interview him, he said he didn't even get a call while the Bears were on the clock.
  3. Name the surprise Riser and Surprise faller...

    Oh, in Miami I know what I'm getting into. My parents are both Cuban and I lived in South Beach for a year. I know jack **** about Jacksonville.
  4. 2018 Road Trips

    I really wanted to go to Nashville this year, but I don't feel like going down there when its cold. It's looking like either Miami or Jacksonville for me.
  5. Name the surprise Riser and Surprise faller...

    How is Jacksonville? My friends and I are debating between that and Miami for a road trip?
  6. Name the surprise Riser and Surprise faller...

    My surprise riser was watching Hellen Mirren in Caligula, I never knew the old broad used to have such a nice rack.
  7. I spoke to Jimmy the Greek during a seance and he told me that his sources tell him Mayfield to the Jets is a done deal.
  8. @Lith as our resident Bulldog scout, what's the scoop on Carter? Is he the answer to our edge rusher dreams?
  9. Chronology of Jets draft rumors

    http://turnonthejets.com/2018/04/nfl-draft-2018-new-york-jets-smokescreen-navigation/ NFL Draft 2018 – New York Jets Smokescreen Navigation Joe Caporoso on navigating the smokescreens around the New York Jets intentions with the third overall pick It has been exactly one month since the New York Jets traded three second round picks to move from #6 to #3 in the 2018 NFL Draft. As it stands today, the conventional wisdom appears to be the team will select Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield with the third overall pick, yet this is a new development. Let’s track coverage of the Jets intentions over the past month and see what expectations should be when April 26th FINALLY rolls around. Shortly after the Jets trade was made, the names most associated with them were Josh Allen and Josh Rosen. Here is Rich Cimini, the team’s longest tenured beat writer on the day of the move. Matt Miller’s first mock draft after the trade had the Jets selecting Josh Allen. The first guesses post trade from Benjamin Allbright were either Allen or Rosen. Twitter Ads info and privacy Twitter Ads info and privacy Nobody has covered Baker Mayfield more closely than Robert Klemko of MMQB throughout this draft process. Prior to the trade, this is how he ranked Mayfield’s most likely landing spots: Twitter Ads info and privacy It is worth noting, he had Miami higher than the Jets despite them picking 5 spots behind them. Eric Galko’s first mock draft after the trade did have the Jets selecting Mayfield, while Bucky Brooks first post trade mock paired the Jets with Rosen. I ran this poll 10 days after the trade on Jets fans preference for the pick, which had Rosen come out on top by 18 percentage points. Twitter Ads info and privacy Moving away from the speculation and to things that actually occurred, the Jets attended Rosen’s Pro Day on March 15th, one day after attending Mayfield’s Pro Day on March 14th, shortly before they pulled the trigger on the trade. They also attended Sam Darold’s Pro Day on March 21st and Allen’s Pro Day on March 24th. All of this is logical due diligence. Similarly, the Jets held private workouts for Rosen, Mayfield and Allen. They’ve had Rosen and Mayfield at Florham Park for visits already with ones upcoming for both Allen and Darnold. Despite this consistency across the board with the top four quarterbacks, the Jets hosting Mayfield for a two day visit on April 9th, seemed to pivot the amount of speculation around their interest in him. The reason for this could because of Adam Schefter tweeting this (even though it is fair to assume Johnson also met with Rosen and will meet with Allen/Darnold): Twitter Ads info and privacy Shortly after his visit wrapped, Klemko and Allbright tweeted this: Twitter Ads info and privacy Twitter Ads info and privacy From there, Cimini’s latest pick has pivoted to Mayfield, Brooks has pivoted to Darnold, Miller has stayed with Allen, and Galko has stayed with Mayfield. The latest from Albert Breer has the Jets with Darnold, while King is leaning towards Mayfield. Elsewhere around the Jets beat, Manish Mehta is going with Mayfield and elsewhere in national coverage, Dane Brugler has the Jets taking Rosen. This recent round up published by the Jets site has five different mocks with four different players being selected across them. I ran a similar poll to the one linked above and the numbers have flipped, with Jets fans now preferring Mayfield by 19 percentage points: Twitter Ads info and privacy At a high level, it appears there was a slight surge of Mayfield to the Jets chatter after his visit to Florham Park (not uncommon after a player visit, as his management likely left with a positive impression) but there is still a high variance on who is being rumored to the Jets. Courtesy of Klemko’s confidence in Mayfield to the Jets, it appears at least his side feels the Jets won’t pass on him with that being corroborated by Allbright (whether that comes from the Jets or Mayfield’s side is unknown). Adam Schefter tweeting about Christopher Johnson and Mayfield likely has also had an impact on perception. Yet, it is worth noting the Jets haven’t done anything out of the ordinary in the pre-draft process that they have not done with the other top three quarterbacks, as it pertains to Mayfield. Mayfield was always a strong possibility for the Jets at both number six and now at number three. It is hard to say he is an ironclad favorite, particularly with it still being so much up in the air who will go first and second overall. Jets fans may be being a bit naive by completely writing off the possibility of Josh Allen being the pick (unfortunately) and may be writing off Rosen or even Darnold too early. The good news for the Jets is that it is hard to go wrong with three of their four options.
  10. Chronology of Jets draft rumors

    That could all be true, but how do we know the organization hasn't spent as much time with the other top QB prospects?
  11. Chronology of Jets draft rumors

    I honestly think a lot of the Mayfield to the Jets hype is driven by the desire to see his personality in NYC.
