  1. Maybe, but I'd rather get some O-line, D-Line, and LB help before we spend a high pick on a RB who hasn't proven that he can carry the load.
  2. No thanks If we can get Turner for our late 2nd rounder, then fine. But I don't want to give up our 1st or early 2nd for a guy who has never had more than 80 carries in a season and is spelling LT behind one of the best O-lines in the league.
  3. There's no way I would pursue Dominic Rhodes The guy has "Buyer Beware" written all over him. He's backup material, nothing more. Anyone can look good playing with Manning, Harrison, Wayne, Clark, and one of the best O-lines in the league.
  4. I've been thinking about this a lot lately and it seems to make a lot of sense. I think we should build up the defense and O-line in the draft and sign a stop gap solution to pair with Leon at RB. Two guys that immediately come to mind are Jamal Lewis and Ahman Green. Their styles look like a good compliment to Leon Washington and neither guy should break the bank. Lewis isn't the same player he was 3 years ago, but he did have a solid season in '06 with 1,100 yards and 9 TD's. He still has great footwork for a big man and knows how to wear down a defense. Green, much like Lewis, isn't the same player he was in years past but he's still solid. He also had a 1,000 yard season and should have another 2-3 years left in the tank. I've soured on the idea of giving up the 25th or 37th pick for Turner and aside from Lynch and Peterson (neither will be around when we pick), none of the other RB prospects strike me as "elite". So what do you guys think?
  5. Spencer may be the better athlete, but IMO Woodley is the better player. I could easily see Mangini taking LaMarr at #25. Our front office has already shown that they don't really care about workout results or great athletic ability, they want guys who are very productive and leaders on and off the field. As a few others mentioned, Spencer is more of a pin the ears back and rush the passer type of guy. Woodley is more polished/disciplined and is better at stopping the run. He also is known as a hard hitter and has a nasty killer instinct.
  6. Yes Some people may say we could get Woodley with the Skins pick but I wouldn't risk it. He's the exact type of player that Mangini covets so I could see him taking Woodley slightly earlier than anticipated.
  7. I think this is a good debate. Who do you think is the better fit for our defense? I've been high on Woodley for several months now but it seems that his stock has somehow dropped recently. Since Carriker will most likely be gone by #25, I think we need to go after a tough, nasty, beast of a LB with our first pick. Woodley and Spencer are my top two choices. Jarvis Moss has character issues and isn't known as a good run stopper like the two guys I just mentioned. Woodley is a team leader, very disciplined, hits like a truck, can shed blocks, and is just as good at stopping the run as he is rushing the passer. Spencer may be the better passrusher, but he doesn't have the run stopping skills or the killer instinct that LaMarr possesses. So, who would you rather have, Woodley or Spencer?
  8. Mock Draft: 1st round: OLB Anthony Spencer - Purdue Spencer is the perfect fit in Mangini's 3-4 scheme. Anthony is known for his smarts and high motor and should be a great addition opposite Bryan Thomas. He's quickly rising up draft boards across the country and should be a great selection at #25 as long as he performs well at the combine. A 6'3 265 beast who will help against the run and rushing the QB. 2nd round: OG Justin Blalock - Texas Blalock has the potential to be a pro-bowler at RG for years to come. He reminds me a lot of Shawn Andrews of the Eagles and is known for his killer instinct and devastating run blocking. He's the definition of a road grader and has fantastic size at 6'4 330. Brandon Moore commits a lot of bonehead penalties and is an average player at best so Mangini and Co. continue to upgrade the O-line. 2nd round: RB Tony Hunt - Penn State I know a lot of people aren't in love with Tony Hunt, but scouts at the senior bowl were very impressed with how he has elevated his game after adding on an additional 15 pounds (6'2 240). He knows how to use his size to his advantage and will always fall forward for extra yards. He will probably never be a star at the next level, but he could flourish in a platoon system with Leon Washingon. 3rd round: DE Ryan McBean - Oklahoma State McBean played at junior college for his first two seasons before joining Oklahoma State. He has great size at 6'5 290 and has the frame to add another 20-25 pounds. He was somewhat inconsistent in college but the talent is there. He should play in a rotational role his first year then make his way to the starting lineup. Has a boatload of talent and is flatout dominant against the run at times. 5th round: WR Matt Trannon - Michigan State Trannon didn't get a lot of oppurtunities with the Spartans, but when he did get the ball in his hands, it usually turned into a big play. He has giant size at 6'6 235 and would give us the red zone threat we've hoped for since Keyshawn left. 6th round: FB Le'Ron McClain - Alabama I know what your saying, why the hell should we draft a FB? I'll tell you why, Askew sucks and Hodgins is so-so at best. Schotty comes from San Diego where they use the big bull Lorenzo Neil to open holes for LaDainian so he gets his big bull late in the draft. McClain is a great receiver and blocker who is known for his toughness and top notch intangibles. He has a lot of experience in the SEC. FA Signings: CB Nate Clements IMO Clements is a better player than Asante Samuel and should actually come cheaper. He's great in man coverage and is one of the best run stopping corners in the league. Pairing him with Dyson and Rhodes would give us a potential juggernaut secondary. OT Jordan Black Black isn't a star by any stretch of the imagination, but he'd be a cheap veteran signing to give Clement some competition on the right side. DE Vonnie Holliday Is a solid veteran who performed well in the 3-4 and was coached by our new D-line coach Dan Quinn with the Dolphins. Should be a good stop gap for a season or two while McBean develops. SS Michael Lewis Was known as one of the better young safeties in the NFL before being benched for a period last season. He's still great against the run and very solid at blitzing the QB. Should come at a fair price and we need help at SS. Erik Coleman has been a huge dissapointment since coming off his rookie campaign and Eric Smith hasn't earned his stripes yet.

  9. It wouldn't surprise me the least if Sands told Oakland to hold the pen while he tests the free agent waters. And I definitely think Sands is 3-4 material. He wouldn't be a NT since he's 6'7 and he couldn't get the necessary leverage but he could be an awesome 3-4 DE if you ask me.
  10. Where did you hear about Blalock barely being a high 2nd round pick? He'll definately be picked in the Top 40 and I would definately take him at #25 providing he has a good senior bowl and Carriker is off the board. Brandon Moore commits way too many stupid penalties and is an average player. By the time the draft rolls around, Johnson won't be a reach. He had a great senior bowl and should post some great numbers at the combine. I consider him the 4th best 3-4 DE in the draft after Branch, Anderson, and Carriker. As long as Hunt runs atleast a 4.6, I'll take him. He's the perfect compliment to Leon and scouts have said that adding on the additional 15 pounds has helped him elevate his game. He knows how to use his size to his advantage and won't dance around before hitting the hole like Barlow. I agree that Moore may be gone, but he won't go before the mid 3rd IMO. I could see Mangini and Tannenbaum throw a future draft pick into the mix to trade up a few spots and land him.
  11. Mock Draft: 1st round: OG Justin Blalock - Texas The Jets have built a very solid foundation with Brick and Mangold, but the right side of the O-line could use some renovation. Blalock is in the Shawn Andrews mold. He's the definition of a road grader and has a killer instinct like no other. This is the guy who can open up lanes for Leon and our soon to be named complimentary back. 2nd round: DE Antonio Johnson - Mississippi State Johnson is rising fast up draft boards across the nation after a great senior bowl. He isn't a great passrusher, but he's looked brilliant at times while controlling blockers and stuffing the run. Already has good size at 6'3 300 and can add even more weight. A future rotation of Sands and Johnson on the right side of the D-Line sounds good to me. 2nd round: RB Tony Hunt - Penn State Hunt impressed a lot of scouts and analysts at the senior bowl with his tough, inside running game and his blocking skills. He's added an extra 15 pounds (6'2 240) since his senior season and it's helped him become a better player. He reminds me of Kevan Barlow except Hunt knows how to use his size to his advantage. There's no dancing around before hitting the hole with this guy. He knows how to plow ahead and actually gets better as the game goes on. The perfect compliment to Leon Washington. 3rd round: OLB Jay Moore - Nebraska Jay had a terrific senior bowl and supposedly both the Jets and Patriots love this kid. He fits the 3-4 almost to a tee and is known as a tough, smart young man who has been overshadowed by Adam Carriker. He's a bigtime overachiever who gets the most out of his ability and plays hard every down. 5th round: CB John Talley - Duke Talley is a very underrated collegiate player mainly for the fact that he plays for a terrible football team. The Duke Blue Devils didn't win a single game last year but Talley has been a very good player his entire career. He's a ballhawk in the secondary and could turn out to be a steal, especially with Mangini's reputation at grooming CB's. 6th round: LB Dedric Harrington - Missouri This may just be wishful thinking on my part. There's a good chance that Harrington will be gone by the 6th round, but it's hard to predict the 2nd day of the draft anyway. Dedric was a defensive captain at Missouri and has always been a steady performer for their defense. He'll add solid depth to the LB corps. FA Signings: CB Nate Clements Asante Samuel is going to want top dollar and will probably be franchised anyway. Clements is a top flight CB who hasn't gotten the attention that he deserves the past two years. He's terrific in coverage and a beast at playing the run. Probably one of the Top 5 all around corners in the game. DE Terdell Sands A 6'7 330 monster who would instantly upgrade our run defense. Kimo was terrible last year as most of us already know so we sign Sands and reduce the number of Kimo's snaps. This could be a relatively cheap pickup that turns into a monster steal. OT Floyd Womack "Porkchop" has had some injury troubles lately but they haven't been serious. He would be a cheap, veteran signing to give Clement some competition at RT. SS Michael Lewis Kerry Rhodes has been a huge plus for the Jets defense, but we're still weak at the SS spot. Erik Coleman has been a disappointment the past two years and Eric Smith hasn't earned his bones yet. Lewis was benched for a period last season but he's still a very good safety. His expertise is stopping the run and rushing the QB. Would be a definite plus to our defense.

  12. Here's some more info MacIntyre Bio: Mike MacIntyre will serve as the Cowboys assistant secondary coach after spending the past four seasons on the Ole Miss coaching staff. In Dallas, MacIntyre will work closely with defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer in preparing the club's secondary for action. MacIntyre spent the last four seasons at Mississippi, working two years as wide receivers coach (1999-2000) before moving over to coach the secondary (2001-2002). He was also the Rebels' recruiting coordinator. In 2002, his work in the secondary helped Ole Miss to a 7-6 record, including a win over Nebraska in the Independence Bowl. His troops saw their interception total increase from 12 in 2001 to 17 in 2002. In addition, his defensive backs played a pivotal role in the team's rush defense as strong safety Matt Grier led the team with 12.5 tackles for a loss and 4.0 sacks. Sophomore free safety Eric Oliver posted the highest single-season tackle total since 1994 with 129 stops. During his first season working with the secondary, Ole Miss ranked first in the SEC and fifth in the nation in pass defense, giving up just 161.3 yards-per-game. MacIntyre coached two of the top receivers - Cory Peterson and Grant Heard - in Ole Miss history during his first two seasons with the Rebels. In the 1999 campaign, Peterson caught 46 passes to finish his career second on Mississippi's all-time receptions list. The following year, Heard not only passed Peterson, but also became the school's all-time receptions leader, hauling in 44 passes for 655 yards and a school-record tying nine touchdowns. Heard finished his collegiate career with 142 receptions for 2,029 yards (second best mark in school history) and a school record 16 touchdowns. MacIntyre joined the Rebels staff after two seasons coaching defensive backs at Temple University (1997-98). Prior to that, he was at the University of Tennessee-Martin, where he served as co-defensive coordinator from 1993-95 and defensive coordinator in 1996. MacIntyre added recruiting coordinator duties in 1994 and became the assistant head coach in 1995. While with UT-Martin, MacIntyre served as a guest defensive backs coach with the Memphis Mad Dogs (1995) and with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (1996) of the Canadian Football League. MacIntyre began his coaching career with a two-year stint (1990-91) as a graduate assistant at Georgia, working with the Bulldogs secondary. He then spent one year as the defensive coordinator at Davidson College (1992). During his time at Davidson, MacIntyre also served as a guest summer coach with the Deggendorf Blackhawks in Deggendorf, Germany in the summers of 1992 and 1993. A 1989 graduate of Georgia Tech with a bachelor's degree in business management, MacIntyre played two seasons (1986-88) at free safety and punt returner for the Yellow Jackets. Prior to attending Georgia Tech, MacIntyre played for two years at Vanderbilt (1984-85). MacIntyre earned his master's degree in education with an emphasis on sports management from the University of Georgia in 1991. MacIntyre grew up around the game of football as his father, George, served as the defensive coordinator at Ole Miss in 1978, before taking over as Vanderbilt's head coach from 1979-85. Born March 14, 1965, in Miami, Fla., MacIntyre starred at Brentwood Academy in Nashville, Tenn. He and his wife, Trisha, have three children, daughter Jennifer (2/23/92) and sons Jay Michael (4/9/95) and Jonston (11/22/98).
  13. Chad I loved Vick when he played for my Hokies, but I always knew he wouldn't live up to the hype in the pros. He's all flash and no substance. Michael has a million dollar arm, million dollar legs, and a 10 cent head. Sure, he'll bust off one or two "superman" runs a game, but then doesn't do jack in the passing game and the Falcons end up losing. This is a typical game for Vick: 9 of 20, 115 yards, 1 TD 2 INT's If the Falcons were smart, then they would get rid of Vick and start Schaub. I'll take a guy like Chad loaded with top notch smarts, heart, accuracy, and leadership over a physical freak like Vick anyday of the week and twice on Sunday.
  14. IRVING -- Cowboys safeties coach Mike MacIntyre is the latest member of the staff to leave for another job. MacIntyre, whose contract expired with the Cowboys, is joining the New Yorks Jets as secondary coach after spending the past four years with the Cowboys. MacIntrye is the seventh member from the 2006 staff to leave. The others are defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer (Atlanta), special teams coach Bruce DeHaven (Seattle), offensive quality control coach David Lee (University of Arkansas), quarterbacks coach Cris Palmer (New York Giants), passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach Todd Haley (Arizona), and running backs coach Anthony Lynn (Cleveland). Head coach Bill Parcells retired.
  15. Is anyone besides me willing to take Hunt at #38 or even #25 if he continues to impress and raise his stock? I've started to sour on trading our 1st rounder and throwing around all that money to get Turner. Tony is the perfect compliment for Leon Washington. Since the season ended, he's packed on an additional 15 pounds and scouts at the senior bowl said it helped elevate his game. He's currently 6'2 240 and has impressed the hell out of everyone down in Mobile with his tough, in between the tackles running style and his great blocking ability.

  17. The funniest damn show around mate!
  18. Everything's going good with me. I haven't sent in any dough yet, but I will in the next day or two.
  19. One of My favorites: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj3lnWSX2v4 "Turn that sh!t off muthaf*cka, I was gettin changed!"
  20. whats up? Bullsh*t how you got banned form JI man.
  21. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r81FdnyTDZY I keep mentioning this show to everyone but hardly anybody has seen it. Here's a highlight reel. It's a canadien show that's funny as hell! Enjoy The sound in some parts is a little messed up but it's still great.
  22. Best All-Time: Don Maynard My Favorite: Wayne Chrebet
  23. Cutting Barton would save us almost $1 million in cap savings which is why I would make the move. He wasn't much of an impact player. Solid, but nothing great. If you think Vilma got pushed around in the middle, you'd be begging for him to be benched after seeing him play on the outside. Prototypical 3-4 OLB's are usually converted 4-3 DE's and weigh in the 255-270 range, Vilma is 230 soaking wet. I like Eric Smith at SS. Coleman has been below average ever since his surprising rookie season. He makes way too many mental mistakes and has lost his luster against the run. Smith showed flashes later in the season and I would like to see what he can do in a fulltime gig. Baker is a very solid TE, but Sean Ryan is nothing more than a good blocking H-back. We could definately use more help at the TE position. Graham is one of the better blocking TE's in the league and is an underrated receiver. He'd be a solid pickup if you ask me.
