  1. Good find on Jackis trader, thanks. Yeah, the death cross has marginal significance on it's own. Alessio Rastani posts occasionally on YouTube, he's worth a watch... https://www.youtube.com/user/alessiorastani
  2. Will Bitcoin remain range bound in consolidation mode for the summer? Death cross approaching, some investors heading back into fiat on the sidelines until a confirmation to the upside, others keeping their fingers crossed on a btc surge next week following a short term drop. Back story; More crypto whales are moving their btc from exchanges into storage suggesting a bottom might be in despite the real possibility of short-term downside. Short term risk on remaining for alt coins... DYOR.
  3. The Gooch making his thoughts felt on James Morgan chances this summer.
  4. The book has already been written and rewritten on football fresh takes. The excitement remains the same for the cliches left to fill the void of a thousand off seasons between now and eternity.
  5. Top takeaway from Donald Trump's reported involvement in Patriots probe: Spygate will never die and NFL looks worse for it Dan Wetzel ·Columnist Wed, May 26, 2021, 6:08 PM Let’s start with this: ESPN’s latest Spygate story is an absolutely delicious, dead-of-the-offseason mystery for NFL fans. It's both believable and perhaps less so. It features backroom deals, political corruption, football, loyalties (real and perceived), quiet martinis, Mar-a-Lago dinners, hotel confrontations, campaign money, cheating and, well, so much more. You
  6. After this you know the Zach Wilson v Mac Jones comparison (both with Trevor Lawrence's hair) is coming.
  7. Barmore is an exciting violent player, he didn't start that many games but 8 sacks in 2020, a powerful addition to the Patriots D line. Perkins seems like good value. Mac Jones was scorned as unathletic and a system qb but he's bright, apparently has a photographic memory and is very accurate. He seems like a better fit for New England than Cam Newton...what shakes out in their training camp will be interesting. Unless you're a fan of another team in denial, it's clear with the Covid opt-out returnees, free agency acquisitions and a good draft, the Patriots should be back in conten
  8. I'm still skeptical that Becton can stay healthy for a full season. Vera Tucker is a player with exciting potential and I understand you're a big Wilson proponent but ZW he had all day to sit back behind the BYU oline last season; we'll see how much the Jets can replicate that BYU level of protection for him in the AFC East alone. Miami added Jaelen Philips, the Bills added Greg Rousseau, the Pats added Christian Barmore and Ronnie Perkins. Not a bad bunch of rookies to test the Jets oline, if they manage to see some playing time for their respective teams. Roll on September.
  9. On Move The Sticks, they liked the Jets trade up but in talking about the league in general, they always talk about how an oline is only as good as it's weakest starting player. They contend that opposing defenses scheme around teeing off on the weakest player on a teams oline. Maybe in a zone scheme the line will perform better but If Clarke does not beat out Van Roten or we get lucky someone's last minute pre-season cut (like we did with Pete Kendall when he was cut from Arizona before the 2004 season), Van Roten and Fant on the right side of the line will continued to be targeted by op
  10. That is some scary sh*t. Well done all, family and medical team.
  11. Well done on moving quickly and giving your wife the heads up to call 911. Glad you caught it all at the right time. Get well , enjoy the draft through to the weekend.
  12. The game itself and the NFL season proper, September to January, I no longer find compelling. With digital technology during the actual games, I am on my computer, my attention divided across the league between multiple games. A three hour football game, with timeouts, and ad breaks no longer stands up against the short attention span of a 21st century world. When we had compelling story lines (our coach liked feet) or characters worth rooting for, there was a reason to watch. Even the sound bites were compelling. Today with podcasts, minute by minute draft emerging draft rumors on ever
  13. Impressive that small school Quinn Meinerz dominating at the senior bowl despite not playing ball since 2019. He broke his right hand at the senior bowl in January still managed 33 reps of 225lbs on his pro day. Meinerz in an interview with Geoff Schwartz on his "Smarter Than You" podcast said the Eagles have shown the most interest. Packers, Niners, Steelers, Panthers, Bengals and Patriots were in attendance at his pro day.
  14. Mims and his up coming year will depend, in small part, on the upgrades to the oline in this month's draft. Nothing of significance apart from an impressive mullet in free agency to upgrade the protection up front, the frontline trench await reinforcements. Whomever is back there slinging the rock may continue to miss open receivers if the Jets line remains as the third worst group of pass block/ and the third worst group of run blockers in the NFL (ESPN Next Gen Stats, regular season 2020) . It's currently constructed as a house of cards. If Clark develops into a starter and/or Bec
  15. I do wonder if Kyle Shanahan was at Justin Fields work outs for support more than anything else. He has worked with him in football camps since high school. I suspect in the face of the rumors and the subsequent politicized backlash that he might might be trying to do Fields a solid... What is apparent on a 49'er forum and here on Jet Nation is how quickly the fan base in a qb needy team will coalesce in factions shouting down alternative opinions with their own absolute truths. We put these qbs on pedestals, a golden calf that fans dance around until the losses begin to pile up.
  16. The Niners fans seem pretty juiced about Fields with the video of a smiling Kyle at his workout today. They understand the logic of Mac Jones for Kyle Shanahan but just like fans here, they're on an emotional roller coaster ride since their team's trade. Mac Jones seems to a nightmare scenario for most of them. They're mostly hoping for Fields, even preferring him to Wilson in the one 49'er fan poll I found.
  17. I'm sure you don't, as I don't appreciate the "Nice, do you want a cookie?" If you are polite in debate and respectful, you will receive it in return. If you don't like someone's argument on the football facts, you can respectfully disagree or ignore the comment. Mocking other posters invites being mocked. We debate, we make points, back and forth. We are all frequently wrong and right. Disagreeing about football is fun when there is mutual respect. Jet Nation is fullI of amazing, genuine, informed, funny football posters. I considered you a good poster with differing views to mine
  18. You're a rude little boy aren't you?
  19. You are wrong about Sam Monson "hating Sam pre-draft". Yes he had concerns about fumbles/interceptions but he also talked about his elite playmaking, higher than any qb in that draft. He had Baker Mayfield 'head and shoulders" above the other quarterbacks but they had Darnold rated #2 in the entire draft class. How is it possible to to hate Darnold pre-draft and rank him #2 on the entire draft board? April 23rd 2018 a few days before the draft PFF of which Sam Monson is a significant part of, ranked Sam Darnold No. 2 in the Draft. Not Merely in quarterback Rankings, but in
  20. Monson is not a point of reference for the truth. Monson hated Josh Allen Pre draft. https://www.pff.com/news/draft-pff-big-board-top-250-players-for-the-2018-nfl-draft April 23rd 2018 PFF ranked their NFL Draft Big board Baker Mayfield 1. Sam Darnold 2. Josh Rosen 6. Lamar Jackson 19. Mason Rudolph 25. Josh Allen 35. Let's hope PFF are not the same kiss of death to their second favorite ranked QB in this years draft Trevor Lawrence 1. Zackery Wilson 2. Justin Fields 3. Trey Lance 4. Mac Jones. 5.
  21. It wouldn't be the first quarterback Monson got wrong...
