  1. Interesting idea. Johnson's dumb enough to trade the second pick to the Patriots and Belichick will figure out a way to trade up for Lawrence.
  2. Yeah. The only other owners even in the discussion are James Dolan and Dan Snyder, but even they are a distant second. The only real winner yesterday was Trevor Lawrence who won't have to pull a John Elway or an Eli Manning and refuse to play for a dumpster fire franchise. I guess you could argue that Sam Darnold was a winner, to the extent that getting to play another season for Johnson and Gase is "winning" anything. Amazing that what are arguably the worst-managed franchises in professional sports are located in New Jersey, Washington DC and New York City. Blame it on Amtrak?
  3. I have a hard time imaging Lawrence coming to the Jets unless the Johnsons sell the team in the next 90 days and the new owner fumigates the place by April.. I also doubt that Fields would be excited about it either. Lawrence has been going to the Mannings' summer QB camp since High School and is apparently close to Peyton. There's really no way they will stand back and let him come to this dumpster fire.
  4. Somehow, I think the Pats would want a 1st and a 3rd to take him off their hands...
  5. No one who knows anything about the game has ever said it was a dirty hit; it was a hard hit, but clean. Bledsoe was trying to extend the play to pick up the First Down, as he has said, and he was fair game in bounds. But, it was more than a thump. Here's a piece from SI on the "anniversary" of the play. http://www.si.com/nfl/2016/09/22/drew-bledsoe-hit-tom-brady-mo-lewis-jets
  6. Some wag dug out quote from the late Bum Phillips this morning. Kind of fits: “He can take his’n and beat your’n. Or he can take your’n and beat his’n,”
  7. 37 is a lot of points to put up on a Rex Ryan Defense, especially on the road...I wonder if Rex is going to fire his DC?
  8. Yeah, it was like he had a crystal ball and it cracked.
  9. I think the right answer is "It's too early to tell." The only negative is that after a hot start other teams seem to have adapted to his approach. But, in general, I like what i see in Bowles and don't think it's too smart to surrender to mid-season grumbling. They're 5--4 and in the middle of the Playoff picture halfway through the season with a journeyman QB whom nobody is comparing to Brady or P. Manning and who has played hurt for three games. PS: Mods. Why is this showing as my first post? I'm not a heavy hitter but I have a lot more than one. Thanks.
