  1. Interesting observation, but not entirely accurate; NFL Media is all over Allen's package, and so a number of probably draft sites rank him as such... but if you go on sites like twitter and just read general draft community chatter, it resembles this place much more than you might think. He's not well liked in #DraftTwitter
  2. Colin Cowherd: Cousins should avoid Jets

    I care. The Brees argument is a good one. Hard to poke holes in that. That's a tall order and a lot happened for all that to come together. Coaching was obviously a big part of that.
  3. Colin Cowherd: Cousins should avoid Jets

    there's just something about a hired gun that doesn't yield the same long term respect. It's like saying ok, so the best we could do on our own was fcking hackenberg so we have to pay someone to "temporarily" elevate us.
  4. I would give just about anything on this planet to be in the room and hear a GM's response to *say* Chris Johnson asking them -- "Why do assholes on forums consistently draft better than you?...."
  5. Colin Cowherd: Cousins should avoid Jets

    typo on my part. Not just because of coaching. Because of management, because of years of bad drafting and because the Giants have routinely exceeded us. We suck. We have to own that. It's not a quick fix.
  6. Colin Cowherd: Cousins should avoid Jets

    disagree. We haven't been a respectable franchise in decades and it's not just because of coaching. A quick turnaround via Cousins does not shed that stink IMO
  7. Gotta get to work here, so quickly-- I see success in multiple draft-QBs this year. In fact, the only one I don't believe in is Josh Allen. So, if you entertain that headspace, then it makes sense to value drafting one instead. I don't see the NYJ turning their culture/luck/ways around by shoehorning a FA QB like Cousins into the fold. I just don't. I don't need to explain that any deeper than it's a bandaide for a franchise that has become morose and downtrodden. To turn our team into a respectable, perennial winner, it's going to happen through the draft, through player development. Ps. I hate our coaching staff presently. Secondly, the 4 first round picks isn't a direct translatable commodity to salary cap, yes i was exaggerating, but not by much. You have 2 ways to address needs and build a roster. You spend the kind of money Kirk commands, that's money that could be used elsewhere to fill needs in FA/extensions. Just like trading away early picks in the draft for years to come. This isn't a complicated analogy, so don't make it one. This part makes me scratch my head: If not him, I stand pat, draft BAP QB if one falls to us at #6, I refuse to trade up and sell off three other starters for Darnold/Rosen. Maybe I'm wrong, but if I am, it won't be proven till well into the future, because neither Rosen nor Darnold have shown themselves to-date to be worth 2 #1's and 2 #2's it would take us to get them. Yes, they are worth it. They're always worth it. Who are you waiting for? Andrew Luck? You've said yourself if i'm not mistaken, that you don't watch a lot of college ball. Don't let some BS narratives, highlights and couple bad games sway you that much. There's very very very very good reasons why these guys are all going to go in the top 5... and we better god damn well move up to be a part of it. Staying pat is not option. Absolutely NOT an option.
  8. Colin Cowherd: Cousins should avoid Jets

    If I was Cousins I would avoid the Jets too. This dysfunctional culture we've harbored for decades can only be shed (IMO, properly) by homegrown talent coming into their own, changing our fortunes and creating a new chapter of pride and success. Just don't see that happening with a QB via FA.
  9. Nothing you said there i would disagree with. I think 80% of us fall into a category that just want to find a QB, period. Some prefer the proven product (cousins) others think it's smarter to go draft. I'd much rather draft a QB, but i get the Cousins angle... But there's a deep level of blind adherence going with the Cousins crowd, because it's "just money". Apparently money is a franchise commodity they don't value enough. Talk about trading 2 or 3 first round picks to move up for a QB -- "well hold on a god damn second now...." people get their penises in a bunch. Cause they appreciate the value of a draft pick... Conversely, I'm seeing stuff like 60 million in year 1, fully fcking guaranteed contracts and the cousins crowd doesn't even blink. A very small fraction of Cousins supporters wavered, that's it. And that's Bullsh*t. There are risks, very real risks, associated with trading up AND with signing Cousins. Neither are bullet proof. btw what kind of incentive does Cousins have to do well if his contract is fully guaranteed? Anyway. People clearly don't value or understand the value of salary cap spending, cause what we're talking about is the equivalent of trading 4 first round picks to move up for Cousins and the justification by posters here is becoming increasing laughable. Also: "There is no prospect in this draft I see as such a clear-cut future pro bowler than I'd sell the farm to get him" Cousins isn't a clear cut future probowler. So if you could get 85-90% of his production from say Mayfield, and still have 58 of that 60 million, which teams fairs better. The only that overpaid for Cousins and bandaide everything else, or the team that settle for relative production and was able to build an O-line/Secondary and playmakers. I'm just riffin' here.
  10. maybe you're right, but I'm getting nervous. Everything we're reading is saying the jets are already bending over.
  11. No dude. No way. There's a line of rationality here... Saying things like "Kirk sucks" and "hasn't proven anything" is grounds for conflict, and i've been guilty of such things. When someone tells me stick a sock in it, because Kirk is a starting QB and they get paid... fine. I'm out of line. But fck telling us we're whiners for saying "WHOA WHOA... say what? 60 mil in year 1, full guaranteed contract...??" that's a rational god damn point to draw a line in the sand. We;re not crazy for having concerns. YOU should have healthy concerns about such numbers being thrown around
  12. I just read today we're willing throw 60mil at this c*nt in his first year.... and guarantee his whole contract? And you jackals are just eating it up.
  13. Hell yea! That's value baby... Scarlett made the right choice to go back... I don't know how i feel on Callaway declaring - but he did. And i like him.
