  1. i can't wait for the spin for why the scrub qb he takes in the 2nd round in 2018 will fare substantially better and eventually start for the team, as opposed to how petty and hackenberg have devolved. i wonder which scouts are working on this right now.
  2. year 4 of him but only year 2 of the true rebuild. whether that buys him more time we will see, esp. if he drafts a qb in the first round. that may actually buy him more time, if he takes an allen in the first, rather than a tackle. he could say you need a few years to see if his 'real' qb pans out.
  3. if mccagnan does this, doesn't go for it with a qb in this draft, then i have to conclude that he thinks his job security is more tied to not drafting a sanchez, then it is to finding a wentz.
  4. no open competition. mccown will be named the starter right after the draft.
  5. With the 12th Pick, the NY Jets Select…

    which works against getting a qb. he'll be happy getting tackle in the first round whom his scouts have rated the 7th best player when they're picking 12th and celebrate while 5 other teams get qbs.
  6. i say mark sanchez. not b/c he wasn't a calculated gamble by the only jets gm who has the guts to do it. but b/c tanny doubled down on him and didn't draft russell wilson b/c he had just paid sanchez.
  7. With the 12th Pick, the NY Jets Select…

    i'm still not sure what that does for us. even if darnold declares, the jets would need to either 1) trade with cleveland or 2) trade with SF, if they're ahead of the giants. if the jets can't trade up, then they're stuck again in the 6-10 range, deciding between taking a qb that mccags doesn't have rated as high as his pick, or taking another position and deferring the qb decision again to the later rounds. i just don't see mccagnan trading multiple picks to get his qb, and i don't see him taking a guy like lamar jackson and developing an offensive system he can thrive in. that type of creativity is what someone like elway will do.
  8. With the 12th Pick, the NY Jets Select…

    right. so if the browns take either rosen or darnold, the only way the jets would have a shot at the other guy is if the 49ers pick ahead of the giants, and the jets trade up. and i doubt mccags would part with the draft capital to trade up to that slot anyway. so he'll pick in the 10-12 range, most likely, and be faced with taking a qb like jackson, mayfield or allen, guys who in his mind are not ready to start, or he can take a safer guy like a LT who he can plug in right away like he did with williams/lee and his 2 prized safeties. mccags is not the gm who takes a qb at 12, say, who he has rated 20th on his board when there's another player he has rated 8th who fell to him at #12. and that's the biggest issue i have with him, he doesn't seem to grasp positional value. it's as if he's building his version of the texans from a few years ago who were loaded but couldn't do anything b/c they had schaub as qb. that's his blueprint for building a team.
  9. With the 12th Pick, the NY Jets Select…

    here's where i see the issue. even if darnold declares, you have the browns, who you have to assume will draft a qb, and then the 49ers/giants. if the jets want either rosen or darnold, they'll have to trade up with the 49ers, if they're even ahead of the giants, who could sit at #2 and take a qb. assuming those 2 qbs are gone in the top 3 picks most likely, there's a dropoff to the next tiers, who at this point i'm assuming include jackson/mayfield/rudolph/allen. if this is how it plays out, i don't see mccagnan trading up for one of these qbs. worse, i don't see him taking one wherever the jets pick in the first round. i think his philosophy is, don't screw up your first round pick, then take more chances. that's exactly how he darron lee/hackenberg scenario unfolded. he thought he 'couldn't miss' with lee, then took a flier on a qb in the late 2nd round.
  10. With the 12th Pick, the NY Jets Select…

    1st round, LT, 2nd round, qb like falk. right after the draft, mccags will say he still has faith in hackenberg, while bowles will have already anointed mccown the starting qb and the OC morton will state he doesn't intend to play any of the young qbs in 2018 b/c 'this isn't triple A ball'. while this is happening at one jets drive, the browns will be introducing rosen, the giants will be introducing darnold, and jackson, rudolph and mayfield will have landed on teams that intend to actually play them.
  11. what did bowles care, he wasn't going to play him anyway, he knew mccags was going to get him a vet to play.
  12. and yet, he's the gm for the foreseeable future. so i'm going to assume he's learned his lessons here, until after the draft when i get cranky again.
  13. maybe mccagnan has learned you can't draft a qb based on measurables. i'd be more concerned if the jets weren't doing their due dilligence on every draft eligible qb.
  14. i think that decision would be generally lauded, that's how you groom a young qb. then you'd have to finally get rid of at least petty or hack if not both.
  15. tanny traded up for sanchez, he was the only one with balls. parcells drafted pennington but that wasn't as controversial.
  16. i just alluded to this in another thread. i hope mccags will keep an open mind with mayfield and jackson. i imagine their evaluations will vary from team to team moreso than other qbs.
  17. with mccagnan, i get the feeling he is always bargain shopping for qbs, unwilling to make the career-defining trade and draft capital investment in a qb that will make or break the jets and thereby his gm career. he knows he's not getting darnold or rosen, if darnold even declares this year. i also sense he'd rather draft a qb with the measurables and raw tools like allen, rather than a guy like mayfield who just gets it done. i fully expect the jets not to seriously consider mayfield or jackson in the draft, b/c they're not what mccagnan wants in a pure pocket passer. i expect mccagnan to focus on guys like falk and rudolph, non-controversial passers who can likely be had in the early 2nd round, which would allow mccagnan to draft a left tackle in the first round to continue his pursuit of singles and doubles rather than swing for the fences.
  18. Bills bench Tyrod Taylor

    agreed. it appears mccags has deemphasized the position, opting to fill the spot first with 1) geno, who was already on the roster, then with 2) fitzpatrick and mccown, two below average starters, only using petty when absolutely necessary b/c of injury, and never using hackenberg. in 3 drafts he's used an early 4th and a late 2nd round pick on qbs. and yet, it is bowles who has to answer all the questions about petty and hack while mccags has what, one press conference during the season?
  19. Bills bench Tyrod Taylor

    it does, it tells the players the best guy will play. this team is playing hard, they are doing a great job changing the culture. of course, if mccags re-signs mccown, and does not draft a qb high in the draft, it will be telling the team he is incapable of improving it.
  20. Bills bench Tyrod Taylor

    this is what happens when you don't gm or coach scared. you test the guys you draft.
  21. So wait, the jets don't spend high draft picks on wrs, rbs, qbs or offensive linemen, and their o-line is poorly graded, they can't develop qbs and they're always importing key skill positions from other teams? Didn't see that coming.
  22. Bowles Sees no Need to Play Young QB’s

    mccagnan has control over the roster. he will decide whether or not to bring back mccown, and he will decide which qbs to pursue in the draft and in which rounds. bowles has to work with what he's given. so if mccags doesn't bring back mccown, and doesn't sign a veteran before the draft, that says something. but the way he likes to do things, he will bring back mccown, say nothing else about the qb position before the draft, and we'll all be in the dark right up to the point where they make their pick. all this after he strikes out hard pursuing cousins.
  23. Bowles Sees no Need to Play Young QB’s

    bowles is doing anything to keep his job. and yes, i believe both bowles and mccags have made up their minds about petty and hack. i think that's why mccags signed mccown in the first place. next draft will be very telling, especially if the jets lose the games they should and wind up with a top 10 pick.
  24. Bowles Sees no Need to Play Young QB’s

    all true and i will add that if mccagnan had any faith in either of his drafted qbs he wouldn't have signed mccown before the draft. in a purge/rebuilding year it would have been easy not to sign a veteran. what mccagnan won't say is that 1) he knows petty is a backup and hack sucks, 2) bowles was always going to start mccown, and 3) he was fully expecting to draft a qb in 2018 so everyone would hopefully forget about hackenberg. mccags signed kerley too, he obviously knew kerley would play over stewart and hansen. that's how bowles rolls, he's easy to predict.
  25. Bowles Sees no Need to Play Young QB’s

    that's true. it's the perfect scenario for mccags to start this bogus process over again, draft a qb in the 4th round, and keep mccown there.
