  1. A player tweeted - time to act!
  2. Baker is a good player when healthy. But he must be very difficult to deal with behind the scenes for the Browns to give up on him so quickly for Watson and all his off-the-field troubles. The Browns actually saw a QB who may not play this year, has a terrible off-field reputation, and who cost 3 first round picks and a gazillion dollars guaranteed as preferable to the guy they picked #1 overall 4 years ago and who has played well when healthy. Mayfield has that prickly persona, and it must be even worse behind closed doors for the Browns to make the move that they did.
  3. Fant was probably our best, and most consistent, player last year. He's the starting LT until someone beats him out. He has every right to want to be paid accordingly.
  4. I think he's making the team. Fast, still getting better as a WR, versatile, plays on special teams. Just the kind of guy you want as your #5 or #6 receiver.
  5. And then there's this...
  6. Oh, I do like Clemons a lot too. Just don't want Kelly to take credit for "finding" him.
  7. This Daniel Kelly guy is as predictable as they come. Condemn high picks and praise lower picks so, if the top picks bust or the lower picks soar, you can claim to be a genius who "told" everyone before it happened. If it doesn't happen, pretend you never made the predictions and assume no-one remembers. Sometimes, I hate the Internet.
  8. Watson doesn't seem to have a problem keeping up.
  9. He's performing better than Trevon Wesco, Kenny Yeboah and Lawrence Cager! Which is...encouraging, I guess?
  10. Vrentas is an excellent journalist. I have no doubt her article is very thoroughly researched, with all sources vetted extremely carefully. Watson is clearly a very troubled individual with a real control/power fetish. No way can the NFL continue to ignore this.
  11. Player picked in top 5 should be very good player - more news at eleven.
  12. Exactly. Players used to care, a little, about the Pro Bowl when their contracts were worth a lot less and they could make a little extra money and spend a week in Hawaii. Now, with even average starters making $10M a season, no-one cares about playing in the Pro Bowl for beer money.
  13. Get well soon. Still having breathing issues after a bad bout in January, hope your own symptoms are mild!
  14. Nice. He's going to fit like a glove in the Jets' system.
  15. I refuse to believe this until Brady Quinn provides his opinion.
  16. Hopefully, the change back to #15 helps Mims find his mojo. If he can become Brandon Marshall, that would be nice. JJ gets his college number too. No matter how much these guys like these new number rules, 11 on an NFL DE will never not look weird to me.
  17. Moore looks great, and is primed for a big year. It's genuinely exciting that both Moore and Wilson are young, fast WRs with a lot of talent. We haven't seen that for a while. Both guys and, also, Corey Davis can play inside or outside, which will give MLF a load of flexibility to be creative. Can't wait to see them in action this year.
  18. Funny thing is, I don't think he was ever actually a Jets scout - as in, he wasn't assigned games or players to go and scout. From what I can see, he was a very low-level employee in the scouting department. The sort of guy who cuts up tape on players and does statistical reports.
  19. This guy was as low level as they come with the Jets for about 10 minutes. His self-promoting hot takes are as worthless as they are dull.
  20. Meanwhile, Dan McGwire has us going 15-2.
  21. Sauce is a very good prospect, but he will inevitably have an adjustment period in the NFL. He often played against lesser competition in college and was rarely targeted. That will change in the NFL, and it will be a challenging experience. I don't think he'll go through entire games with being targeted in the NFL, so he will have to adjust to that. Since we picked him, I've gone back and watched quite a few Cincy games. Gardner is very impressive, but he does have things to work on. He can get a bit grabby on longer routes, which he won't get away with in the NFL. His tackling will need to improve in the NFL too, especially when playing in zone. He's not Revis, who is the best technical CB I have ever seen, but Gardner is extremely talented and can become a top-tier NFL CB in time. He's sort of a cross between Antonio Cromartie and Richard Sherman, with the ability to be as good as those guys once he adjusts to the NFL game.
