    What team would you rather have?

    A team that wins games. Lots of them. Don't care how (except for Pasterisk style cheating)).

    Which teams are actually looking QB?

    Cincy could look to pick the successor to Dalton, depending on who's still on the board. Not likely to trade up, unless they really fall for someone.
  3. How does our D personnel change in different sub-packages? I can see our base package including Williamson and Mosely at ILB, but as we go to more nickel & dime sets, wouldn't that be more in line with Lee's abilities (and less Mosely's?) If we can get a successful role player out of him I'd rather keep him than trade him - unless we're getting a very good pick in return.
  4. Something coffee related, no doubt.
  5. I agree with the earlier post, that POTW upvotes should count for X normal ones (5 or 10 or something like that). I upvote loads of stuff, but POTW requires a certain something to be deserved. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk

    Pass Rush Help?

    You don't pay for what someone has done, you pay for what you believe they will do for you. Barr was not played in a pass rushing role at Minnesota, which contributed to his numbers. Houston played opposite Ford, which contributed to his. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk

    Hold On Jets God has Ordained Victory

    Well, since Shawshank was set in the 40s and 50s, this would have been quite appropriate for the Namath era! Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  8. Where does "Leader of Men" come on the traits list? Asking for a friend.

    Number 3 pick

    Before the KO trade, possibly. Now - not so much. If it is genuinely "Bosa for Nelson" I'll take Bosa, thanks.
  10. Bear this in mind ... Bowles always preached run the ball, run the ball, passing was almost a dirty word. I'm sure a run-first guy was after OL as well as D. Can't run without OL. I'm not holding my breath that Macc was being held back from drafting / signing OL all these years by Bowles & co.

    Easton to Saints

    And if we're going to sign a hold the fort / contingency player, you can do that later in FA, so you don't end up paying a backup guy starter money. Just hope Harrison isn't Wesley Johnson 2.0 ...

    Jets kicker issues

    i have a lot more faith in the coaching staff to create production with the personnel they end up with, whoever that may be ... and it's been a long time since I said that about coaching and the Jets! A good return man helps, but a lot of the big returns come about through blocking and 10 other guys doing their jobs, as well as the return man. Roberts' return average the two years prior to joining us was 22.6, last year it was 29.4. Was that down to him, or the rest of the unit? http://www.nfl.com/player/andreroberts/497320/careerstats

    Easton to Saints

    If we'd signed this guy for 4 / 24 on day one of FA, the freak out would have been amazing. "He was injured all last year" and so on. So I'm not in the least bit worried about "missing out" on him. Doesn't mean to say I'm not worried about the position in general (echoes of Wesley Johnson ...). But the fact we've hardly seemed bothered about it suggests that the team are less worried than the fans.
  14. But he was also the guy who picked up Robbie as an UDFA in the first place. [emoji6] Giving Robbie (or any player) a first round tender may seem an easy step, but it will then be used in the negotiation process by the guy's agent as a way of pushing up the value of his extension. I honestly don't see what all the panic is about, lots of teams use this process to gauge and set market value for a player (more for the agent's "benefit"). If a team is willing to pay him a big amount this year, then he'll likely get that, or more, next year too. So you either match it, or move on. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  15. Lol ... Fitz has now signed for his EIGHTH team. Not bad in a 32 team league!
