  1. I hope you are right. But don't forget that Sam was the one that asked for the play calling and the Jets turned their season around.
  2. Love it! https://nypost.com/2020/05/27/free-agent-jadeveon-clowney-spurned-richest-offer-from-browns/ It’s not all about the money this time for Jadeveon Clowney. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft has reportedly rejected a significant offer from the Browns, who have been “the most aggressive team with him financially” and “has offered the most money to date,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. “I just think he has balked at going to Cleveland for whatever reason,” Schefter told “The Next Level” on ESPN Cleveland on Wednesday. “I think he’s been hesitant to go because if he wasn’t, he would’ve gone already because it’s the most money. It’s the richest offer on the table and he hasn’t taken it.” Clowney, 27, remains on the market as the most prominent free agent due in large part to his high asking price and lingering health concerns. The oft-injured defensive end is recovering from core muscle surgery he underwent in February, and though he claims to be healthy now, teams have been unable to assess his progress in-person in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. “I don’t know if people think I’m hurt because of what I went through because of the core or because of previous years,” Clowney said earlier this month. “I’m ready, I’ll be ready to go whenever the time comes. Whoever I sign with will get the best version of me.” If Schefter’s report is accurate, the Browns’ offer would be very close to his $21 million-per-year target having already turned down offers from the Dolphins and Seahawks (his former team) worth $18.5 million-per-year and $17 million-per-year, respectively. He is seeking a contract that would put his salary in line with top edge rushers like DeMarcus Lawrence — who signed a five-year, $105 million contract in 2019 — and Khalil Mack — who signed a six-year, $141 million contract in 2019. “Why [hasn’t Clowney signed with the Browns]? I don’t know,” Schefter mused. “Is that not wanting to be in that city? Is that a lack of belief in the organization? I don’t know what it is. But there’s no doubt that Cleveland has offered the most money to date. For whatever reason he has not been willing to take it so far. That doesn’t mean it couldn’t change, but it hasn’t changed just yet.” The Dolphins eventually signed lower-priced defensive ends Emmanuel Ogbah and Shaq Lawson and the Seahawks signed Benson Mayowa and Bruce Irvin, likely taking both teams out of the mix. Clowney has also been linked to the Eagles, Giants and Jets, though The Post’s Brian Costello thinks the odds of the Jets signing him at such a hefty price tag is unlikely. “I just don’t see the Jets committing big money to Clowney,” Costello wrote on May 14. “It is not how GM Joe Douglas has done business this offseason.”
  3. Not every swinging dick that gets drafted by the Jets will remain a Jet. Good bye and good luck!
  4. Added on 5/15/20: Jerome Bettis, Jim Brown and Marshall Faulk (a bad man).

The New York Jets host the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6 on Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018, in East Rutherford. (Photo: Danielle Parhizkaran/NorthJersey.com) First round: DE Leonard Williams (sixth overall) Second round: WR Devin Smith (37th) Third round: OLB Lorenzo Mauldin (82nd) Fourth round: QB Bryce Petty (103rd) Fifth round: G Jarvis Harrison (152nd) Seventh round: NT Deon Simon (223rd) Analysis: Williams has turned into a very good player, but has yet to become the superstar the Jets were hoping for when they picked him that high. Bryce Petty is the only other player in this draft class to play an NFL snap after 2016. To have only one player in the league less than four years after a draft is … bad. Williams is the only thing that saves this class from total disaster. Grade: D 2016 Sep 10, 2018; Detroit, MI, USA; New York Jets linebacker Darron Lee (58) celebrates his touchdown during the third quarter against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. Mandatory Credit: Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports (Photo: Tim Fuller, Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports) First round: LB Darron Lee (20th) Second round: QB Christian Hackenberg (51st) Third round: OLB Jordan Jenkins (83rd) Fourth round: CB Juston Burris (118th) Fifth round: T Brandon Shell (158th) Seventh round: P Lachlan Edwards (235th overall) and WR Charone Peake (241st) Analysis: It took until Year 3, but Lee has turned into one of the better players on the defense. The Hackenberg pick was a disaster. He never played a snap for the Jets and will probably never play in the league. Jenkins has been a solid starter since his rookie year. Burris has struggled (the Jets cut him and put him on their practice squad last week), but Maccagnan got good value at the bottom of the draft: Shell is a competent starter, Edwards is one of the better punters in the league and Peake is a key special teams contributor. The best move of the draft came after it, when Maccagnan signed undrafted free agent receiver Robby Anderson who has turned into the team’s most dangerous offensive weapon. Grade: C 2017 Buy Photo New York Jets safety Jamal Adams (33) celebrates a turnover in the second half. The New York Jets host the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6 on Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018, in East Rutherford. (Photo: Danielle Parhizkaran/NorthJersey.com) First round: S Jamal Adams (6th) Second round: S Marcus Maye (39th) Third round: WR ArDarius Stewart (79th) Fourth round: WR Chad Hansen (141st) Fifth round: TE Jordan Leggett (150th), OLB Dylan Donahue (181st) Sixth round: RB Eli Mcguire (188th), CB Jeremy Clark (197th), CB Derrick Jones (204th) Analysis: With two picks, Maccagnan transformed the defense perhaps for years to come. Midway through his second season, Adams is likely the best player on the defense. Maye was a ready-made starter as a rookie and has continued to impress, despite injury concerns, in year two. But outside of Adams and Maye, four of the other seven players drafted are already gone less than 18 months later. The mid-round whiffs on Stewart and Hansen are particularly painful, given the Jets’ current lack of depth at receiver. Donahue and Clark are gone, too. Leggett and Jones remain, but have yet to contribute. McGuire has the chance to be a sixth-round steal, but it will depend on how he looks after missing the first half of the season with an injury. Grade: C+ 2018 Buy Photo New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (14) talks with wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, left, during the second half. The Jets defeat the Indianapolis Colts 42-34 in Week 6 on Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018, in East Rutherford. (Photo: Danielle Parhizkaran/NorthJersey.com) First round: QB Sam Darnold (3rd) Third round: DT Nathan Shepherd (72nd) Fourth round: TE Chris Herndon (107th) Sixth round: CB Parry Nickerson (179th), DT Folorunso Fatukasi (180th), RB Trenton Cannon (204th) Analysis: It’s still way too early to know exactly what the Jets have, here. But this draft class is off to a promising start. Darnold was the Day One starter and could be the franchise quarterback the Jets have long been seeking. Years from now, this draft will be judged solely on him. But four of the other five players drafted have made an impact as rookies. Shepherd is a defensive line starter, Herndon is the best pass catching tight end on the team (he has three touchdowns already), Nickerson and Cannon have filled in capably during injury problems. It’s still way too early to properly evaluate this class, but it’s on track to be Maccagnan’s best yet. Grade: TBD Overall: Maccagnan has done a nice job with the first-round picks, there’s no denying that. The mistakes in the middle rounds have been painful and costly. But he made a bold move to trade up and land Darnold this spring. And if Darnold turns into a star, he’s shown a lot of early promise, the other mistakes will be forgotten and forgiven.

  6. Interesting fact, Barry Sanders had 41 fumbles/3,062 attempts at 1.33% vs Curtis Martin 29 fumbles/3,518 at .824%
  7. Great website to compare players. https://nflcomparisons.com/barry-sanders-vs-curtis-martin-comparison/ I am working on the spreadsheet and will keep updating. Update 5/15/20 Added: Jerome Bettis, Jim Brown and Marshall Faulk
  8. How in the world can Pennington ever trump the "butt fumble' play? That alone merits HOF status!
  9. The AFC is probable the most open and up for grab division in the NFL If the Jets want to change their reputation, we need to start by beating the Bills and 49ers or 1-1 between these two games. Anything less it will be another redundant year.
  10. Sack the coronavirus and get this season going. Then we will see the true results of the entire draft.
  11. Let the Brownies keep the "off season" Lombardi.
