  1. If Gio gets cut in Tampa I wouldn’t mind making him our third or fourth back. Very good safety valve as great RB pass catcher and a veteran presence since two of our backs are very young. He wouldn’t be bad as fourth on the depth chart
  2. I find it hilarious that that’s the best clip they can come up with when they make the receiver actually stop to get the ball because it’s underthrown and then on top of that you can see it has wobble to it in the air
  3. Any rumors we may be after someone? If so anyone ‘out there’ or ‘rumored to be on trade block’ you would like to see Douglas make a play for? Thanks! Have a safe summer
  4. Was he a freshman when Sandusky was still there?
  5. Guyis dual run/catch threat as far as production and Ds have to scheme against him lining up in either spot. If you could predict in any year that of 4 picks in 1st 2 rounds, one would be as great as Deebo and then trust Douglas with the 2 remaining picks. I dont wantt to roll dice on 1st round WR (come on, NO ONE will replicate Deebo) so ypu are giving up a pick 38 for Deebo. Big deal. Douglas still has 2 more . 4 and 35 to get 2 more starters. Deebo is the swiss army knife this OC and scheme crave and will elevate Zach and force 2nd best CB to cover Moore, leaving Davis and Berrios covered by schlubs. And Carter has a open part of field for dump offs as Moore and Deebo will force D to go wherever they go.Add in 2 hybrid pass catching TEs and Zach has MULTIPLE safety valves. It forces the D to keep LBs for rusing as too many great YAC guys playing close to line.
  6. I had to break up with her. She always wanted PDA and I aint into that stuff.
  7. its shanahan approach (dad, son, mcvay etc) unless of course he has that rare beast a stud 3 down RB which maybe the NFL has 3-4 any given year. I think shanahan systems has been best at utilizing committee approach IF no stud.... we dont have that stud and we have a OC that learned form guys who honed committee approach. You be surprised some teams try and force feed a RB 3 downs when they or OL isnt built for that https://www.nfl.com/news/sean-mcvay-wants-to-copy-shanahan-s-approach-with-rb-committee Sean McVay copying Shanahan's approach with RB committee The Los Angeles Rams moved on from Todd Gurley with the plan of employing a committee approach in 2020. Coach Sean McVay told Dan Hellie on the Helliepod recently that he's taking a page out of Kyle Shanahan's playbook in how he plans to approach the running back position. "I think it'll just naturally work itself out. I think if you look at that success San Fran had last year with that running back-by-committee approach," McVay said, via Cameron DaSilva of The Rams Wire. "What I thought Kyle (Shanahan) and their players did a great job of is, 'Hey, we're going to have an open-mind approach, we're going to be committed to trying to have some balance and then we'll go with the hot hand or whoever really expresses himself as deserving of the carries." In the wake of Todd Gurley 's disastrous contract, the Rams' plan to ride a committee is natural. It's not wholly unlike when a person breaks up with someone and subconsciously seeks out a partner diametrically opposed to their previous companion. McVay noted that Darrell Henderson , Malcolm John Kelly and rookie Cam Akers all have the ability to carry the load if needed. "We feel good. We've got three guys really on our roster that have played football when you look at Darrell Henderson , John Kelly is another guy, Malcolm Brown has consistently produced in that No. 2 role behind Todd," he said. "And then Cam Akers is a guy that we're excited about. So we've got four backs that we feel like are all NFL-legitimate starting-caliber backs and not feeling like you've got to force carries or touches to any of them. Just open mind and see how these guys do." How the carries shake out will depend on a myriad of factors, including how fast Akers picks up the offense given the lack of offseason work prior to training camp. The rookie remains the best bet to win the most substantial role, especially on early downs, but, as McVay said, all four running backs should play a part.
  8. Panthers still trying to trade McCaff,, maybe Gordon holding out for there?
  9. 100% agree, but would like a 1 year starter proven in case he can get a wildcard. Gordon appears to be available for a friendly deal I think other than draft Gordon best compliment ot Carter.. we NEED proved RB that can pass block and pick up blitzes. There is reason Javonta Williams had huge year in Denver. Gordon terrific blocker and LBs have to respect play action cause he can catch opening up other RB From AFC GM: Gordon is a strong goal-to-go back that can find the end zone on top of being solid in the passing game both as a receiver and blocker.

  11. This scheme likes gadget plays when right players available. He is super talented but makor injury prone. We need more WRs. Take a 1 year flyer on Will Fuller and watch the fun w/coordinator implementing Fuller Berrios and Zach scrambling ability. Fuller could play slot where Crowder was freeing up Berrios to play same hybrid role he had at end of season last year
  12. Do not include bad injury, legal issues etc. Just healthy good player guy didnt get a deal and maybe now wair=ting for a injury to a player on another team Could it be Melvin Gordon waiting for a Akers/Saquam/McCaff type week 1-2 injury somewhere to cash in on big bucks.
  13. agree,, why that good idea for future but I like a 1-2 year 'lets get a wildcard' deal for Gordon who fits same size bill,, 6'1 220
  14. exactly right. I have Mariota on my fantasy team and love this and if he does well he moves on in 2 years if Falcons draft a stud QB or the drafted QB if not a stud stays as backup if Mariota make sthe most of his 2nd chance
  15. I like Grodon in there if Carter hurt as opposed to Coleman
  16. agree. Its great for Mariota in fantasy. Its like winston few years back with Bucs. Falsons will be playing catchup all year. Mariota will have 4 pts at halftime then end up with 30+ fantasy points as he throws against a prevent D to pitts/patterson as Falcons are 3 scores down.
  17. I think you have wrong thread. This is RB by committee thread. Good points though
  18. ya committee are put together oddly and %'s mean zilch. Look at edmunds conner last year. I wouldnt mind a draft pick RB but think if things fall right Jets may sneak a wildcarsdso a 1 year deal for Gordon may be a smart move . With most openings gone Gordon may love a 1 year deal with upfront signing bonus so he can do it all over again in 2023. I think Gordon goes back to Denver of Chargers though. (That will piss of williams fantasy owners. Ekeler actually put up great #s w/Gordon. Was fresher and didnt get dinged as much) Why I like him for Jets, keep Carter fresh and away from goal line injury zone
  19. i honestly never thought about it or let it bother me. I focus solely on team on hand this year until we appear headed to being eliminated from playoffs then I think of trades, waiver pickups, draft etc to help next years team
  20. agree and Shanahan scheme likes 3 rotating backs with 1C getting less reps but involved. Its why SF a nightmare for Fantasy owners per RB's LOL
  21. Ya, I think Gordon a perfect physical scheme fit to counter Carters attributes as a 1B to Carters 1A
  22. We now have a average (or better OL) meaning if Zach flops now, its on him and Jets need to react fast next year.
  23. Is Coleman the perfect 1B to Carter? Is there better options out there. Obviously based on Carter skillset along with 'maybe' not burliest of RBs at goal line we may thing a compliment is a stronger back. Who out there? Draft? Melvin Gordon would actually be a perfect physical compliment and do well at the goal line (something sorely needed). HadsDouglas patiently waited out FA long enough to get Gordon a good price?
