  1. are you really questioning the football fit? i can see questioning not going another position but a forum poster questioning a football fit when there is a team of football lifers making the decisions is pretty stupid. i remember all the nonsense with richardson not being the "3 technique"...how did that work out?

    WTF are you talking about, Richardson screamed 3 tech coming out of Mizzou. And they were very few people who though that he would not transfer well to a 5 tech.  The only "concern" on Richardson was where he was going to play with Coples/Ellis/Mo already in place and drafting a guy in the middle of the first to be a rotational player concerned some fans.  These are the same concerns that are being expressed now by jet fans regarding Williams.  You draft the best players and let them sort it out on the field.


    I do however think that 2015 spells the end of Wilk with the Jets

  2. With the Titans making a commitment to Mariota, Mettenberger could be a topic of discussion tomorrow heading into the 2nd and 3rd rounds...


    Would anybody do a deal for Mettenberger, and maybe draft picks for Wilkerson?


    Say Mettenberger and a 3rd or 4th for Wilkerson?


    I would be very interested in Mettenberger


    I thought you were a jet fan?  At the very least I would want Mettenberger and the 2nd rd choice this year and something extra next if they sign Wilk long term before he becomes a FA/Tagged.

  3. I just wish they spent the 15 min split between the player and team that just selected and the next team and potential player after 4 months of Marriota/Winston for two more days. It will be pick 8 and they still they will be talking about pick  1 or two.


    What would be nice if CBS Sports did a better show aimed at guys who are more in tuned with the draft.  A couple of ex GMs like Dominik and Savage, some colorful ex coaches like Dennis Green and Parcells, a couple of Draft guys like Rang and DeThomas  with Jim Nantz being the host.

  4. If they are not going to commit to him long term, (as I would) they should trade him.  Keeping him for the next two years at about a 10mil per average to see him walk and get a 97th pick in the draft will be a travesty.  l peg his value at bout where they drafted him, a late first -  If he is willing to sign long term at around 12-13 a year.  If he is not willing to sign long term with the new team, I don't see his then diminished  trade value being worth not keeping him for the two more years. 


    Dallas may be a nice spot for a trade, pick 27 and the freed up Money can be earmarked for a extension for snacks, and will put a little downward pressure on Richardson's extension.


    Best scenario for the Jets would be  Cooper/white at 6 then Shane Ray/Gregory at 27, Collins the OT at 38, Then DT Bennett or Cooper with the third. 

  5. QB tag too pricey for Rivers, IMO.

    You don't  think Rivers is one of the top 10 qbs in the game? I do. They had no running game and no #1 WR last year and the oline was no great shakes either. Rivers would make the Jets, Bills, Texans a playoff team.  At 22 mill that is 5 mill more than what Revis is getting, Rivers will make a bigger than 25% more improvement in the jets 2016 performance than a Revis would.

  6. Rivers is an UFA after the 2015 season.  If the Chargers want to get something for him, now is the time to trade him.  Of course, they could extend him and then trade him in 2016, but an extension can be tricky with guaranteed money/bonus accelerating into the cap if you trade so quickly..  

    Tagged players get traded, The tag is no hindrance to the new team signing him long term, it just limits the teams you can trade him too. He has to want to go there and they need to have 22 mill of cap room when the trade is made. 

  7. That's the problem. If you say anything against the preconceived, indocrinated notion you are attacked in every which way.


    It's not like a woman never accused a man falsely in court.

    And she photo shopped the bruises too- I suppose.  Look the guy hit her, whether she is money hungry or not and then used the situation to her financial advantage is of no consequence.  I rather have the money than him serve 6 months in jail any day.   The guy was convicted at trial by an experienced judge and Hardy was represented by a very expensive and competent lawyer.  he knew that to overturn the decision all he would need to do way pay her off and it went away.   

  8. What do you all think of Denver's draft?

    Broncos' mock:


    1.28 T.J. Clemmings, Pittsburgh, OT

    2.27 Carl Davis, Iowa, DT

    3.28 Garrett Grayson, Colorado State, QB

    4.34 Dezmin Lewis, Central Arkansas, WR

    5.07 Blake Bell, Oklahoma, TE

    5.28 Adrian Amos, Penn State, FS

    6.27 Corey Crawford, Clemson, DE

    7.33 Max Garcia, Florida, C

    7.34 John Crockett, North Dakota State, RB 

    7.35 Kyshoen Jarrett, Virginia Tech, SS

    Adrian Amos is one of my Binkies,  Clemings as a RT is a good pick,  Davis fills in for Knighton, Grayson fits nice if Peyton stays on Oswiller like Mallet will move on.  Desmin Lewis will be a fine 3, but they no longer have a slot. I rather have sanders on the outside, I think Manning will kill him on crossing routes.  But there were no slots where you were picking.  A little early for Bell, Garcia in the 7th is great.

  9. True. If Folk makes that FG instead of it getting blocked in NE we win that game though.....we almost had Miami beat the first time around and that's playing without throwing the ball too lol so overall we were a better team than Tennessee regardless if they came within a hail mary/lateral play from beating us....as bad as we have/or had it, Tennessee is worse off than us.

    It would of been nice to be drafting at 2 though, we just weren't the 2nd worse team in the NFL.

    I do't understand that line of reasoning, do you not think that the titans also had a couple of games that turned out bad due to 1 play, or the failure to make a play. The only time I buy that "we should have a better record" is when they are significant injuries like a year a QB went down,

  10. Colts draft:


    2.02 Jordan Phillips Oklahoma DT

    2.29 Denzel Perryman Miami (Fla.) ILB

    3.29 Hroniss Grasu Oregon C

    4.06 Rob Havenstein Wisconsin OT

    4.29 Kurtis Drummond Michigan State FS

    5.29 Craig Mager Texas State CB

    6.08 Matt Jones Florida RB

    7.27 Devante Davis UNLV WR

    7.38 Darryl Roberts Marshall CB

    Nice draft

  11. I honestly can't wait for these Rivers rumors to die. No way in hell San Diego get's rid of him.

    I don't see it happening this year. The team is still unsure of moving, now this time next year the situation is changed. This year they are still in SD, where he is happy. Next year 2016 however he will need to be tagged and will most likely play for the 22 mill if the team stays in SD for the 2016 season, but if they move to the Rose bowl or Colosseum, He will sit out the first ten games and join the team for the last 6 games and only be away from his family for those 6 weeks while pulling down 10 mill and make it almost impossible for the Chargers to tag a 35 YO again. 


    I think the chargers will pounce on Hundley in the 2nd. Let him sit for a year and B/U -  then trade Rivers next year with a qb in place that likes playing in LA.

  12. Patriots Draft: Went heavy on CB that can play Zone and DT that have some Pass rush and lateral quickness. Don't know if the pats want Connolly back so I went heavy on interior oline both of who are superior run blockers but need some work in pass blocking.    


    Marcus Peters and Josh Shaw are both 6-1 and 200 lbs and have played man off zone and press

    Jarret and Hardison and play the 1 and the 3 in pass rush, 

    Ryan, Fua and Rush are 3 Lbs that can play the pass as well as the run, With losing Casslias and Ayers I had to dip a few times.


    With SF I went heavy on the dline, they lost Sapapoga, Francuois,Justin Smith and McDonald since they went to the SB

    Malcom Brown and Walton I see as 3-4 DEs and Williams as a nose.

    Anthony I think will be a good fit to replace Willis/Borland in the middle

    I can see Mitch Morse starting in place of Iupati

    Lippett is a tough WR that will be a good #3 and can step in when Boldin hangs it up

    Darby, will replace one of the departed Cox  and Culliver

  13. you don't think spygate was cheating.  that is the thought process of a 9 year old fan boy deep in the throes of hero worship



    I never said spygate was not  cheating, never once. The pats broke the rule on filming from the sideline and got punished. It does not bother me at all when fans of other teams bring it up or I would not be here.

  14. Turns out the Chargers don't have a seventh round pick.

    The draft:

    17: Dupree - Best pass rushing and 3-4 OLB prospect in the draft, just over Beasley.

    49: DJ Humphries - By far the best OT left at the time, and a guy who will go much higher on draft day.

    82: Iko - Preseason #1 CB was here due to blown ACL. Closest thing to an overdraft here...maybe Diggs.

    117: David Cobb - Should get work right away and much better than the 117th best player in this draft.

    153: Stefon Diggs - Depth WR and kick returner, more a slot guy than the usual deep guy.

    192: Kristjan Soloki - Is a 3-4 round guy, possibly higher, that I got in the 6th. Yay.

    It's a good thing I didn't have a seventh since I was going to take the BC C that Hess took in the fif. This is probably the best draft here so....what do I win??!?!?!

    Thanks to everyone who made this possible! Let's do it again next time! I'll be the Jets, Packers, and Patriots! Called it!

    very nice job,

  15. Much easier would be to require the balls to be stored outside, or at least in an unheated space at the outside temperature. Of course, the manufacturer claims their balls won't deflate under falling temperatures, which is possible if the balls have good enough thermal properties. Proper testing should determine if the manufacturer's claim is valid.

    Jet fan, is was just a sales rep and when he stated that the balls will not deflate, it was in the context that the ball will not lose air. Not that a Wet leather ball will prevent a change in PSI due eto weather conditions.


    This is the conversation. He took exception to the statement that BB made that rubbing the balls briskly will incerease the PSI, He did not refer to the rest of BB's argument regarding the change in atmosphericconditions


    representative for Wilson, the NFL's official football manufacturer, says New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick's explanation for why his team's footballs were under-inflated doesn't hold water. 

    At a press conference Saturday, Belichick posited that rubbing the footballs to break them in could temporarily raise the air pressure level by one pound per square inch. 

    "That's b.s.," Wilson rep Jim Jenkins told Boston.com at a Super Bowl fan convention. "That's b.s., man."
