  1. Chiefs sign Revis

    He’ll hold out by Week 14.
  2. Lamar Jackson [QB, Louisville]

    Take this for what its worth...Manish...grain of salt. But nevertheless: “I have a better chance of being drafted to quarterback the 2018 Jets than Lamar Jackson. The way the Jets see it (and I wholeheartedly agree), there will be plenty of college signal callers in the upcoming draft better equipped to find success at the next level. The Jets, like many other teams, frankly, don't believe that Jackson will thrive as an NFL quarterback.” http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/jets/jets-mailbag-gang-green-views-louisville-qb-lamar-jackson-article-1.3648259?utm_content=buffer71d07&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=mmehta+twitter
  3. Darnold, Allen, Rosen

    I firmly believe that Bowles was reason for that. I do. I really believe he said some “we’re just a few pieces away with Fitz. No need to sell our future.” It was there in our hands, even if it were Goff, we’d be set. Then we are in prime spot to draft Mahomes or Watson, without trading up. I love Jamal Adams, but Brian Westbrook has 0 rings. You get what i’m saying.
  4. Yeah I agree and held out hope for Hackenberg. But if he couldn’t even pass Petty as the #2, I don’t have a lot of hope left. Who knows with next year, but not holding my breath.
  5. Not really in all honesty, in general terms. He was in a bad spot. But I did see enough bad that was independent of the teams current state. I hope I’m wrong and we have our franchise quarterback on the roster. I just seriously doubt it.
  6. Yeah, to see if he’s grown any = faint glimmer that he would miracously play well.
  7. Lets be honest. The only reason any of us wanted Petty or Hack to start was to ensure the #1 pick, with the faint glimmer that either would miracuously play well. But we all knew the truth. We also wanted to finally be able to say, we actually can close the book on them, due to bad play. We can’t expect Bowles to actually put them in. He needs to win to keep his job. I’m not saying thats right for the franchise long term, but no one should be surprised.
  8. Darnold, Allen, Rosen

    Apples and oranges my man. Nets traded away picks for over the hill aged players. Rams and Eagles both traded up a lot of picks for their QB’s. Neither team was a playoff team at the time. Both (in year 2 are division leaders). A franchise quarterback is a game changer for a franchise. I get your point, if you miss on one, you’re screwed. But if you believe your guy is there, go get him.
  9. Bowles Sees no Need to Play Young QB’s

    I think the only winnable games left for us are Denver and LA. Denever game is at Mile High, so I think we lose. Chargers have been playing well lately, and a few of their losses came down to 1 possession. They’ll be in thick of a wild card birth. So I think we lose that one as well. As for the final game. BB historically does not rest players. So we’ll see. The rest of the games are tough. Losing out is a big possibility, and should net us a top 5 pick.
  10. Darnold, Allen, Rosen

    Agreed. The cost is irrelevant.
  11. Darnold, Allen, Rosen

    Apparently from Cimini, Mac was on the field for UCLA/USC during warm ups writing notes (his contemporaries weren't writing notes. During the game he watched from the crowd (his contemporaries were in press box), and seemingly mostly focused on UCLA. http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york-jets/post/_/id/72943/jets-gm-gets-a-very-up-close-look-at-sam-darnold-josh-rosen I think MAC is gearing up to bet the house, trade up for Rosen, as of now. There is still plenty to go over (interviews, pro days, private work outs, physicals), but I think Rosen is his guy, and wants to make sure that every t is crossed and i dotted before he trades all the picks it will take to get him.
  12. Riley Ferguson QB from Memphis

    I think you've watched Ferguson more than I have. So I'm gonna take your word over mine. I will say that the games I have watched him this year, I found myself impressed each time. He's got good competitive spirit in him, hes a fighter. You mentioned Mahomes, and...we are gonna regret big time not taking him or Watson last year. I wasnt on the Watson train last year, but I was with Mahomes. I waa hoping we'd be able to trade down with Cleveland and get Mahomes there. But we should have just gotten him at 6. He's gonna be the one that got away.
  13. Riley Ferguson QB from Memphis

    I like him a lot of a developmental guy. He has mechanic issues and would probbaly need a couple years. I hope we take a round 1 guy, but if we go the FA route, I wouldn't mind taking Riley in the 3rd if we cut Petty and Hack.
  14. Kurt Benkert (Virginia)

    He's been on the radars of scouts for the last month or so. He had himself a game yesterday, but a brutal pick 6 (they happen). I have no watched enough of him honestly to give any real assessment. But he is a name that could be rising up boards once combine and senior bowl start coming around. "While most of the top-rated quarterbacks have failed to meet expectations, Kurt Benkert of Virginia continues to swiftly move up draft boards. The Week 2 riser entered the season literally ignored by scouts but is now receiving some early- to mid-round grades around the league. Expect Benkert to be invited to a major postseason All-Star game (Senior Bowl?) as well as the combine." http://draftanalyst.com/tuesday-draft-notes-60
  15. For all of McCown's sorrows that he may feel for getting benched so the young backups can play, the $6 mil that the NY Jets are paying him should dry away any tears.
