  1. NFL guys all assumed a share of say over the roster at minimum when Gase was involved in the firing and ran the hiting of the new GM. I heard more than one say it.
  2. That's why I think the length of the process and the back and forth is a good sign: I think theres no way Douglas settled for anything less than final say on the 53. He's not goo g to be Gase's puppet. If he was he would have been signed 30 seconds after he landed.
  3. If ever there was a GM with a 'pass' year, it's Joe Douglas. Sure, there's room to make a couple of moves, but the guy wasn't involved in retention, free agency or the draft. He'd have to sh*t in Chris Johnson's hat to get fired this year.
  4. I think Hack was more an example of a GM and coaching staff that didn't communicate than anything else. QBs bust - it happens to every GM/Team. But 2nd round QBs usually get on the field, there's usually a progression, an arc that eventually reaches an opportunity to get them on the field. Even if they're not seeing what they want to see, it's a "**** it, let's see what he can do" situation. To me, the fact that Hack never saw the field in a game says more about the GM / coaching staff relationship and communication than anything else.
  5. Haven't seen anything. Read through the thread a bit, and I have to say- by most accounts, Douglas is Howie's right-hand man and has had his ear. If you're guessing, you have to think he's had the most influence over his team's drafts, for better or for worse. So maybe Douglas has the experience edge, but it still feels like these guys are close enough that getting them in a room and asking the right questions is what would matter.
  6. On the O, sure, but they had a top D most of those years.
  7. I've seen them, called "Squash Tendrils" at the union square green market.
  8. Say what you want about the Johnsons and their handling of the Jets, but I doubt they ever set foot in a fast food joint. Probably would stand at the door and wait to be seated, or sit and wait to have their order taken.
  9. It's a true sicilian delicacy - Bucatini with sardines and wild fennel... also a similar dish for the weaker of heart, bucatini with cauliflower, raisins and pine nuts... topped with fresh toasted bread crumbs, just like the sardines... Perhaps this is more to your liking:
  10. BROOKLYN JET killing it in this thread... as soon as I saw L&B I was going to go look for Roll-n-Roaster and Brennan & Carr but kept scrolling and... So here's a less popular but still a home run in Bkln:
  11. Jimbo Covert. Guy was a beast, used to just maul people at Pitt. Russ Grimm and Mark May were on the same OL. It wasn't a surprise at all that he was picked over Marino - he was considered as blue-chip as you can get at LT, and the Bears offense and running game improved immediately and for the next 10 years.
  12. You changed your answer at LB. You stated that you thought Polite was a good pick there, so on paper we upgraded the pass rush. You understand that it doesn't matter if we don't know it's an upgrade on the field yet, we're talking "on paper" - right? So that's 2 out of 3 areas that you think we upgraded, on paper. CB we're minus Claiborne, but if we do sign 1 or 2 of the FAs, were probably no worse off. So better off on paper in 2 of 3 areas, worse off in one with the ability (cap room, availability) to break even. You agree with that, right? On paper, before we know what happens on the field?
