    Theory: Slowly increasing anxiety that Maccagnan has no cards up his sleeve and we're headed for yet another cycle of early (relative) success followed by four to five years of clown college. Not resolving the Wilkerson issue, investing in a collegiate QB that nobody thinks is any good, and finding himself hung up in a public negotiation with Ryan Fitzpatrick are all eyebrow-raising concerns. The fan base is always reactionary, but will be even more so with this regime because it looks like they're making the same mistakes that the Herm, Mangini, and Rex regimes did.

    Dive for Deshaun

    Justin Jackson is returning for his Junior season.  This is a definite top 10 team that can compete for the Final Four, a lot of experience and a lot of talent.  Not as much talent as a few teams out there but they should be able to compete with anyone.

    Ummm Jackson was going in 2nd rd at best, he will help UNC but he really isnt that special of a player.

    I acknowledge my poor work performance and history of costing my company more revenue than I produce and I'm paid accordingly.

    garb and captain Jone are holding out for $11M!!!  The right play is to tank for Watson, as much as I despise Clemsoning, watson is the real deal cant miss franchise stud QB

    Of course this is self-evidently true. People act like 'let him sit for a year' is a Plan A and that starting right away or not is somehow a matter of philosophy with regard to development or such nonsense. The simple fact of the matter is that the guy holding the clipboard is way behind the guy who's playing and falling even farther back. It's like the ridiculous idea that Sanchez was somehow going to catch up after starting far fewer games in college than the quarterbacks who turned out to be successful did. 

    my classic line  Clippy's are for skippy's lol

    just like a certain other coach who is constantly bending rules that you seem to love.  The bottom line is he wins, he's been a part of "cheating" since at least his days w/ the Giants but all teams try the same stuff.  Don't hate him b/c it works for him, hate him b/c of what he has done to our franchise.

    please enlighten us on this other coach who cheats like mumbles?

    I pay about as much attention to these guys as I do Todd McShay and Mel kiper, none. As much as he's a douche, Belichick knows the game and said it best in this article:


    He basically says that its impossible for these analysts to know what the coaching staff wanted and expected out of each player on each given play. Football is a complete domino effect, if one player fails his job on a play it can cause everyone else to miss their assignment.

    Little Bill goes on to say that even when he watches film of other teams he has no way to consistently decipher which player was the intial cause of a play breakdown, because he or anyone cannot know what the play's intitial intent was for every single player.

    1 stat matters, scoreboard. 

    did mumbles know the game when he didnt have Cindy as his QB?

    BS. That's complete BS. There is NOBODY on our schedule that the Jets could not beat if they had actually drafted some f*cking starters. Not a part time linebacker and a lot of depth. This draft f*cking sucks in terms of the bigger picture. We are NOT building toward a SB. That should be the point of everything we do. Instead, Mac tried to tread water, essentially he tried to maintain a 10-6 team and he failed miserably at that. This team will not win any more than 6 games, more than likely 5.

    seriously the goal should be 2-14 and drafted the next great franchise QB Deshaun Watson....will be tough to jump ahead of 69ers and brownies.

    I didn't love the pick because I thought it was cowardly, like the Pryor pick, but I think it looks better alongside the Jenkins pick in the third. I'm fairly sure that our defense would have been much improved last year if any of our LBs could run even a little bit, and now Bowles has his speedy LBs.


    That said, if Laquon Treadwell starts putting up Alshon numbers, and if Noah Spence becomes Justin Houston, everyone gets fired, especially if the short-fingered Abercrombie model we drafted in Round Two never develops.

    add doctson to that list

    They didn't call him a bust. They said he had a higher bust probability because of the situation he's in.

    Put it this way: if Mangini drafted Vilma and he spent his formative NFL years in that defense, would he be considered a great pick or a bust at the close of his rookie contract? Or more correctly (as opposed to calling him a "bust" outright), a relative bust for his draft slot. In that defense he looked like what you'd expect from a mid-rounder. Good enough to put onto the field but nothing like what you wanted from a top-15 draft pick.

    Personally I'm in wait & see as well. I think if he was too small or his skill set was so ill-fit for what Bowles wants to do, then I think Bowles would have communicated this to his GM at some point, and we wouldn't have taken him unless he slid to round 2 somehow. I don't love placing that high a rating on the position itself, unless he turns into a $12-15M/year ILB, but I can't kill the player himself for that. The position just isn't worth that, unless he turns into like a top 3 (minimum top-5) ILB.

    Yep, this kid is not close to being a von miller type player, like they drafted a good middle relief pitcher. this pick will always be measured against doctson and treadwell imo. Mac better hope they do not become studs
