  1. Probably should have been in more of a prevent type coverage though than single man with no safety help in that situation, no?
  2. Mike Pettine under fire after Bucs touchdown before halftime Posted by Charean Williams on January 25, 2021, 7:42 PM EST Kevin King did not have his best game Sunday. The Packers cornerback, who played after being questionable with a back injury, gave up a 39-yard touchdown to Scotty Miller on the next-to-last play of the first half and drew a penalty for defensive pass interference on Tyler Johnson late in the fourth quarter. But King doesn’t bear as much responsibility as defensive coordinator Mike Pettine for the play before halftime, which frankly has become overshadowed by the final 2 1/2 minutes of the game. The day after one of the most disappointing losses in the Packers’ long history, tire tracks are everywhere, including down Pettine’s back. Matt LaFleur’s comments immediately after the game invite a question about whether Pettine’s future already is decided. “It was man coverage. Definitely not the right call for the situation, and you can’t do stuff like that against a good football team and expect to win,” LaFleur said, via Jason Wilde of Wisconsin State Journal. “When you look at it, there was 120 some-odd plays on both sides of the ball plus all the special teams. There were a lot of plays in that game that could have been made, that could have changed the outcome of the game. “But the ones that really hurt us the most were that play, and then to come out to start the second half, [Aaron Jones] had the fumble and they score to make it 28-10. That really was the big difference in the football game. You just can’t do that stuff. “I blame us as coaches for putting our guys in that situation. That’s inexcusable. That should not have happened. So we’ve got to take a look at it, do some self-reflection, and try to figure out ways on how that can’t happen again.” The Bucs were ready to punt on fourth-and-four from the Green Bay 45 before rethinking it after a timeout. They picked up a first down on a Tom Brady throw to Leonard Fournette to the 39 and called their final timeout with eight seconds left. Brady saw Miller get a step on King, who was in one-on-one coverage, resulting in a touchdown with one second left in the half and a 21-10 halftime lead. Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy was among those critical of the Packers’ coverage in that situation, writing, “That may be the worst defensive design I’ve ever seen with 8 seconds and no timeouts left. Green Bay — I’m not sure how you play inside technique man to man and [not] just play zone and protect the sideline and the end zone? Amazing.” Pettine’s mistake could cost him his job.
  3. Sorry I tried to paste article but failed. Pettine called man coverage on that last play of half to Scotty Morrison and Lafleur will probably fire him

  5. It’s funny they tout his being a member of the Johnson & Johnson family but he never worked for the company. It’s like giving Paris Hilton credit for the success of the hotel chain.
  6. In 19 seasons Brady went to a conference championship 14 times(74%!) and 10 Super Bowls(53%!). Whatever arguments you make about coaching and teammates you can’t ignore those stats. He just wins. Rodgers for all his talent had the ball in his hands several times at the end of the half and the game and couldn’t get his team in the end zone. Brady has always been able to score in the clutch like the TD at the end of the half and always makes the first down when he needs it to win the game. Even the 2 Super Bowls lost to the Giants he led 4 th quarter drives to take the lead only to see his defense give up miracle last minute plays to Eli Manning. He threw for 505 yards and 3 tds against the Eagles in his other loss and was strip sacked to get him off the field at the end. The clutch drives against the Rams for the winning fg, the comeback against the Falcons, the 4th quarter drive against the Seahawks, the examples are endless. No qb in history has won more than 4 or been in more than 4 Super Bowls and Brady is going to number 10. He performs in the clutch better than anyone ever has for longer than anyone has and no one will ever match it. Many qbs with as much or more physical talent during his era, Favre, Manning, Brees, Rodgers haven’t come close. It’s time to tip the hat and just surrender to the facts that this guy who has made our lives miserable for 20 years is the undisputed GOAT.
  7. Report: Deshaun Watson wants out of Houston, no matter who the coach is Posted by Michael David Smith on January 24, 2021, 1:05 PM EST Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was reportedly unhappy this offseason when he suggested that Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy should interview for the team’s head-coaching vacancy and the Texans left him off their list. But just because the Texans later reversed course and did interview Bieniemy, that doesn’t mean Watson can be placated. According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Watson wants out of Houston and that won’t change, regardless of who the Texans hire to be their next head coach. That could make it a tough sell for the Texans to get any top candidate to take the job. If Watson isn’t going to be there, the Texans job is one of the least attractive NFL job openings in years. The Texans are a bad team without much in the way of draft capital or salary cap space to get better. The only thing that would make the job attractive to a coach is that Watson, one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks, is there. If the Texans offer Bieniemy the job, he might decide he’s better off remaining in Kansas City, where Patrick Mahomes is running his offense, than going to Houston, where he doesn’t know who his quarterback would be. It’s been an ugly offseason in Houston, and the situation does not appear to be improving.
  8. I never knew this but will keep it in mind in the future.
  9. Here is a few more, worst being Revis and Cro: Free-agency scorecard for Jets' GM: Three years, $133 million, 20 wins By Rich Cimini ESPNNewYork.com Mike Maccagnan pointed the Jets to a 10-6 record in 2015, his first season as GM, but a pair of 5-11 campaigns have followed. Three years ago, Mike Maccagnan crushed his first offseason as the New York Jets' general manager, using free agency and trades to raise the team's talent base. The Jets won 10 games after a four-win season under the previous regime, and he was named NFL Executive of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America. In retrospect, that first offseason was like a sparkler on the Fourth of July: It dazzled, but faded quickly. From 2015-17, the Jets doled out $133 million in guarantees for free agents -- the sixth-highest amount in the league, according to ESPN Stats & Information research -- and they don't have anything substantial to show for it. A 20-28 record, no playoff appearances and no impact players remaining on the roster. If past is prologue, the Jets could be in trouble, because they figure to be among the most active teams this offseason. They have plenty of holes to fill and a lot of money to burn. By the time they get done trimming the fat from the roster, they should have about $90 million in cap space at the start of free agency. Maccagnan, who started to build a young base last season, needs to augment that with a killer free-agent class. He believes there are intriguing options among players hitting free agency for the first time, so "they have a chance to kind of grow and develop," Maccagnan said at the end of the season. "Those players tend to be a bit more pricey sometimes, but I think from our standpoint, we’re going to try to build this not just necessarily to be successful next year, but to be successful next year and the year after." A review of the past three offseasons shows that Maccagnan has a knack for finding value with second-tier free agents, but his big deals have busted. Perhaps he learned some lessons that could apply to next month's free-agent frenzy. (Note: The following list includes only key signings.) 2017 QB Josh McCown Contract: One year, $6 million (fully guaranteed) Outcome: Money well spent. The 38-year-old started 13 games, galvanized the offense and was named team MVP. It's too bad he isn't a few years younger. LT Kelvin Beachum Contract: Three years, $24 million (guarantee: $12 million) Outcome: The Jets didn't want to splurge for one of the big-money tackles last offseason, so they settled for the reasonably priced Beachum, who missed only one offensive snap and delivered a solid season as a pass protector. CB Morris Claiborne Contract: One year, $5 million (guarantee: $2 million) Outcome: They got Claiborne on the cheap because of his long history of injuries. It was worth the risk, as Claiborne wound up playing 82 percent of the defensive snaps. He proved to be a good No. 2 corner when healthy. Re-signing their own: The Jets made a bold move before free agency, locking up guard Brian Winters for three years, $29 million ($15 million guaranteed). It was the right move. He didn't play up to his usual standard, probably because of a torn abdominal muscle, but he's still in the prime of his career. 2016 RB Matt Forte Contract: Three years, $12 million (guarantee: $9 million) Outcome: Desperate to replace Chris Ivory, the Jets overpaid for Forte, who was 30 at the time of signing. They had reservations because of a chronic knee injury, which ultimately hampered his ability to produce at his usual level. He probably will be cut in the coming weeks. NT Steve McLendon Contract: Three years, $10.5 million (guarantee: $4 million) Outcome: They got him on the rebound after losing Damon Harrison. McLendon isn't Snacks, but he's a sound investment who actually improved once he got comfortable in the scheme. Re-signing their own: It was a rough offseason for Maccagnan. He lost his best defensive lineman (Harrison), paid $12 million to re-sign a journeyman quarterback (Ryan Fitzpatrick) and gave Muhammad Wilkerson a five-year, $86 million contract ($37 million guaranteed) -- one of the worst moves of his tenure. His best move was re-signing running back Bilal Powell for three years, $11.3 million ($6 million guaranteed). 2015 CB Darrelle Revis Contract: Five years, $70 million (guarantee: $39 million) Outcome: In a word, awful. Revis made the Pro Bowl in 2015 (strictly off reputation), then fell off the proverbial cliff. The Jets cut him after two years, eating the final $6 million in guarantees. CB Antonio Cromartie Contract: Four years, $32 million (guarantee: $7 million) Outcome: It made for a neat story, reuniting Cromartie and Revis, but the results never matched the hype. Cromartie was washed up, lasting only a year. The best thing about his deal was that it was structured in a way that didn't hurt the cap in subsequent years. CB Buster Skrine Contract: Four years, $25 million (guarantee: $13 million) Outcome: The fans are on his case because he commits too many penalties, but at least he's still around. Skrine has played 80 percent of the defensive snaps over the past three seasons. S Marcus Gilchrist Contract: Four years, $22 million (guarantee: $8.5 million) Outcome: He was the football equivalent of an "innings eater." He was out there a lot (90 percent of the snaps in two seasons), but he you didn't know it. He's gone, but not forgotten, as he's still counting $1.4 million on the 2018 cap. G James Carpenter Contract: Four years, $19.1 million (guarantee: $7.5 million) Outcome: A terrific signing. He played close to a Pro Bowl level for two years before slipping a bit last season. Keeping their own: The key signing was linebacker David Harris, who re-upped for three years, $21.5 million ($15 million guaranteed). He ran out of gas after two years, but it still was a solid move because of the intangibles he brought to the locker room. © 2021 ESPN Internet Ventures.

  10. Normally I would agree that having first second and third rounders the next 2 years would be adequate to rebuild but not a team like the Jets. The 2 first rounders we wold get to keep are late rounders that usually go to playoff teams. The reason the Jets have all that draft capital is because we traded an all pro for 2 of the first rounders and we have a roster bereft of talent. We had several years without any draft choices sticking on the team exemplified by the Idzik 12. We have a team that should be anchored by players 30 or under drafted as 1st round picks in the last 8 years but instead drafted people like Calvin Pryor, darron Lee, Quinton Coples, and Dee Milliner. The decent ones like Adams and Williams are gone. Throw in 2nd round beauties like Stephen Hill, Jace Amaro, Hackenberg and I would argue we need to keep the extra picks to adequately rebuild a team like the Jets. Losing 3 first rounders and significant cap room to take on Watson would give us a franchise QB with a lousy franchise.
  11. Guy was top five in the league elite defensive player. 75% of that will be better than any other linebacker they have by far.
  12. What makes him better than Fields? Fields has same arm strength with better size and mobility
  13. As much as McCown might like Darnold you’d think he likes Watson more
  14. Sorry I missed this being posted on first page
