  1. Rivers fell off a cliff this year. His arm is shot, it takes him about 5 seconds to wind up for passes over 10 yards which contributed to him taking a ton of sacks and interceptions. He should either take a McCown role or retire but no team should count on him to be a starting QB. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  2. Again, clearly you never watched the 49ers in the second half of this year or you would know that he did well in way more than 1 game. Is 146 yards plus a TD on 19 carries against Baltimore not a good game now? Versus NO, 10 carries for 69 yards plus 2 receptions for 40 yards with 2 TD’s...again not a good game? Last game of the season against SEA with division on the line: 10 rushes for 57 yards 2TD’s plus 1 reception for 16 yards. Total JAG numbers right? He did all this while also playing special teams by the way. The guy put up solid numbers with many games getting less than 10 total touches because SF was so afraid of taking carries away from Coleman who they gave big $ to in the off-season. And yes, I do hesitate to say SF will make him the clear starter next season because again, if you watched the games you would see that they split carries all year along and refused to make 1 back the main focus until late in the season.

  3. You are making yourself look foolish because you think you are making some point by repeatedly calling him a JAG. Mostert didn't put up big numbers this year because they didn't give him an opportunity until after Breida and Coleman both went down. Do the o-line and scheme help him? Obviously. But you also can't teach speed and that is what sets Mostert apart. There were a couple of games late in the season where Coleman was healthy and did NOTHING while Mostert was tearing the defense apart. JAG's don't do that. I'm not saying he is going to be an All-Pro either but I wouldn't be surprised if he enters into 2021 as a favorite to take the lead position.
  4. Don’t you tell me what to ignore! Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  5. I thought it was obvious I was being facetious but clearly my attempt at humor fell flat. In either case, I admit that he did burn me in fantasy both of those years so I'm probably holding on to some resentment from that time as well.

  7. I think you are missing my point, he was on IR in both 2015 and 2016 which was right during his contract negotiations. I’m saying that he likely got less than his value if he was otherwise completely healthy. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  8. Do you know what deep threat WR’s rely on to do their job? An offensive line and an accurate deep ball QB. If the Oline can’t hold blocks for longer than 2 seconds (see the first half of the season) then they basically take RA off the field. I’m a big Darnold fan but can still admit he left at least 3 TD’s on deep balls to Robby on the field. It’s was probably closer to 5 but just thinking the ones I specifically remember. As soon as Sam missed those 3 games, you know Robbie’s numbers were not going to be good, especially paired with our o-line. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  9. Yes, let’s “help” Sam by sticking him with 1 good receiver next year (crowder) and letting the only other proven one go. It worked so well when we did the same with Sanchez. Anyone have Chaz Schilen’s number?
  10. Even when losing at least WAS still threw the ball. I find it hard to believe how quickly fans forget that we went through 3 games THIS SEASON (almost an entire quarter of the year) where we hardly attempted any passes and when we did they ended up in like 15 sacks so all we did was behind scrimmage and RB dump offs. Those 3 games skew every offensive stat because we basically put up 0 numbers. It was an unprecedented stretch of putrid offensive football. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  11. Stopped reading as soon as you called him a slot guy. If you think there is anything about him that qualifies him to be in the slot, it’s pretty clear you don’t understand football. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  12. Keenan Allen also ends upon IR every other year. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

  14. Gotcha. I honestly didn't do a deep dive into the underlying argument of the original poster, just took him at face value of the other highest paid SS in the league but definitely agree that well-constructed teams should dedicate salary cap percentages according to positional values (QB, Edge more; RB, SS less). OTOH, there are exceptions to the rules and I don't think anyone would argue that the Jets are currently a well constructed team. I think that's the crux of the pro vs anti-Jamal sentiment...is he worth being an exception (whether due to his own abilities or just the fact that the Jets have no one else to spend the cap on for the next couple of years anyway)?
  15. That's definitely true...and the closer we get to his contract extension the lesser value we get back. I also think that teams are more likely to overpay during the season than they are in the offseason. During the season, a team on the edge of the playoffs can easily justify losing a 2nd - 4th round pick if they feel the alternative is watching from home. In the offseason, everyone is more optimistic about their chances, especially before the draft, and would rather keep the extra pick and try to find a gamechanger in the draft.
  16. Correlation does not equal causation. Could easily say that 3 out of 4 teams with the highest paid SS in the NFL are playoff teams (assuming TEN gets in) so we should lock up Adams ASAP if we want any hope of making the playoffs next year. Neither point holds any water in real life though.
  17. Fans never put nearly enough emphasis on what it takes to learn an entirely new offensive system. Not to mention the defensive side as well but at the very least on D, if you are unsure what to do you can at least read the player in front of you to try and make a play. Fans expected the entire offense to be masters of the Gase system by Week 1....and never mind the fact that we are now down to our 2nd, 3rd and 4th string players in multiple positions as well....you think they knew the playbook? Half of them weren't in training camp over the summer.
  18. If the Saints were able to keep old ass Ted Ginn Jr relevant in the last few years, there is no doubt Robby would have been a Pro Bowler the last couple of season.
  19. This. You don't trade a Pro Bowl player for the same draft capital that you used to pick him. Regardless of posters here like it or not, he was taken in the draft right where he was expected to go and has lived up to his pre-draft status. If we decide to trade him, the team that wants him has to pay us back a top half first plus additional picks to compensate for the fact that he is now a known commodity and not a risky draft pick. People question why the Pats consistently trade picks for players (like a 2nd for Sanu) instead of just drafting potential better ones. It's because while the ceiling MIGHT be better in the draft, at least you know what you are going to get with an established player...the floor is much higher and it seems a lot of other GM's don't consider that nearly enough when making player trades because they put too much stock in their own drafting abilities.
  20. Feel free to try and spin how this argument isn’t based entirely on wins and losses. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  21. Yes, when basing an entire argument off of the Win/Loss record of a QB, attributing 7 additional losses to him for games he didn't play is now considered #facts. For those interested in a legitimate discussion about Darnold, his record last year was 4-9 and this year it is 5-6 so even if he loses the next two games, he still showed improvement year after year. Also, if you are going to talk about giving up picks for a QB who should be able to affect the Win/Loss record of the team, I think it should also be noted that the team is 0-7 without him as QB. If he truly had no positive impact on the team, they should have won 2.6 out of the 7 games played without him, the same as his winning percentage with the team. #facts
  22. Didn’t Sam miss a few games last year and this year which all turned out to be losses? Seems like your argument is a little disingenuous when you start handing him L’s in games that he didn’t play. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  23. Lamar had serious questions about his throwing accuracy coming out of college. That’s why he dropped. Credit to him and the coaching staff for working to address that while also putting him in good situations to thrive. It’s certainly not a given that a QB will improve his passing skills in the NFL, just ask Hackenberg. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
