    Hackenberg signed by eagles

    Camp Arm / PS2-4 tackling dummy. win-win, he gets a chance to flash and maybe generate interest.
  2. Yeah thankfully they forced Garapollo out - I think they may have continued on. Brady is one of the GOAT, no doubt, but he plays one position. The most important position, but still. They have won SBs with scheme alone holding the defense together.

    Jets OTA’s June 5th, 2018

    Being late to practice doesn't involve law enforcement, it's a team rule and the team can handle it how they like. Ditto shoelaces. Don't think they can do anything about the hours he keeps, except maybe in camp, when they might have a curfew (maybe not nowadays?). Otherwise they again would have to follow that rule with everyone. But yeah, I think Woody Hayes was the last to legally use the wood chipper before it was banned. I'm not saying what they should do. I'm saying what I think they will do.

    Jets OTA’s June 5th, 2018

    I think they don't do anything because they don't want to set the precedent that they selectively decide whether to let the legal process play out or not before suspending based on whether the player is a mid-round rookie or a starting RB or the reigning MVP.

    I was speaking in terms of the CBA, I think "let the legal process play out" is parroted because it's the negotiated terms.

    Jets OTA’s June 5th, 2018

    I think the NFL/NFLPA have been pretty consistent that any legal infractions get dealt with after the law has determined guilt, no? I don't see why that wouldn't be the case here. Besides, game suspensions would mean more, as would being in the NFL Substance Abuse program for his entire career. I've heard players talk about getting a knock on their hotel room door while vacationing overseas with their family, being handed a cup and accompanied into the bathroom while their family stood by.

    I think those are high school, maybe college coaching tactics. These guys don't see each other a whole lot off the field, it's not like they're sitting in class together or passing each other in the halls 5x a day, where they have that kind of bond that would really reinforce the code of behaviour. They're not buddies, they're coworkers. And coworkers that spend less time together than office coworkers. Yeah, drunk people.
  8. Nothing pisses off a defensive coach more than a quick INT, or even a 2 or 3 pass 3 and out. His defense hasn't even gotten water and they're back on the field.
  9. Minnesota's taxes are not even low - but they have a reciprocal tax agreement with Michigan, where Cousins built a home and lives - and Michigan's tax rate is low. I'm not an accountant - there's a guy that heads the sports accountancy at one of the big firms (PWC? I forget) and he's got a Twitter @sportstaxman and he laid it all out on Sirius NFL Radio when this was going down. Cousins will take home like $450k/yr more on the Minn deal than the Jets offer or something like that IIRC. He also said that interpreting the numbers based on tax rates was something that was done in every multiple offer situation, and the hosts (a former player and a FO guy) agreed. Which is still not to say he went to Minn because it was slightly more money, but it wasn't for a lot less, as most Jets fans seem to believe.
  10. But they didn't. With taxes figured in, he takes home more money going to Minn. And FO people and sports accountants said that this is absolutely presented to him and every player by their agents, accountants and lawyers. But I totally agree that winning was the factor with Cousins. He's got at least 1 more big contract in him if he wins. In addition to the fact that they didn't vote, I e heard that Goodell basically tells them that they're going to re-vote after every vote and it will be unanimous. Davis and York were willing to buck that to make a point, knowing it wouldn't change the result, I guess CJ wasn't.

    OTA QB Mentoring Tidbit

    But seriously, yeah, a coach could have stepped in and said "[QBx], you hold up, Sam's going to take another rep here. Sam, try to [advice on footwork] this time" But the fact that McCown did it, without being forced to, is a sign that we've got the right 'QB who will probably start the season but might not because the QB coming off devastating injury is ready or because the rookie QB is ready but might start some eventually anyway and if not it's OK because either way he's gonna help the rook and oh yeah we've already seen he doesn't need many reps at all to be ready'.

    You want a coach to start the season opener?

    OTA QB Mentoring Tidbit

    Yep. But still you'll hear Jets fans argue that it was a bad move because we would have had the 1 or 2 pick if we let Petty and Hack handle things. He was supposed to be bad, he was good. Better than the opposite, I suppose.

    OTA QB Mentoring Tidbit

    Maybe for some of the other franchises he's played for, but certainly not for the Jets. Were you watching last year? I was against bringing him in last year, thought he was horrible and the young guys had nothing to learn from him - I was basing it on his record of bringing his teams top draft picks. I was wrong, he played well, and looks like he'll be a very good mentor.
