    Jets minicamp - Day 1

    That is a fair point well made. There is no question it’s a factor and your view holds water. I still think if anything that makes it just as important not to rush an undercooked rookie into action too soon. In my opinion it works both ways and we still see young QB’s start off well but then get somewhat found out after a couple of years. I’m of the view a year or 8-10 games at least before being handed the reins is still no impediment to progress if the talent is there but your view makes a lot of sense and definitely an alternate viewpoint to consider

    Jets minicamp - Day 1

    Can’t agree with this, Aaron Rodgers sat for two years and it didn’t stop him developing. There’s no hard and fast or one size fits all route to development. Put the best QB on the field, if that's Darnold then all well and good but Teddy has the trump card of actual pro game experience and has actually led a team to postseason, SD will have to be considerably better to have earned it over Bridgewater IMO edit: being purely pragmatic it makes a ton of sense to talk up Teddy B as the starter too, all talk of how good he looks will just make him a more attractive proposition on the trade market...it’s win-win either way

    Yeah he’s the only one I got wrong though Coco, I was literally bang on about everyone else! I’m still waiting for you to be right about anything

    Fair play to you for owning up to your misses, that’s a rarity and it never ceases to amaze how so many fans can be such experts without actually being employed in the league! fwiw I got it all wrong in Dion Jordan
  5. One reason Devin Smith shouldn’t be ruled out, he was one of the top ST gunners in college ...if the two knee injuries haven’t robbed him entirely of his physical skills( or courage for that matter) that might be a reason he sticks.

    Wait. Leggett is good?

    Not what I heard regarding Herndon, a lot of the scouting reports have him as a willing and underrated blocker

    Yeah Leggett even said it about himself at one stage although I thought that was more specifically about his effort as a blocker. Still coaches get paid to bring that out of players. As a pass catcher some of his college tape is exciting
  9. That motion is ugly as hell but you are right, he whips it out fast and he does seem to get uncanny accuracy and zip on it. I keep watching the Colorado game where he makes some incredible throws on the run. It’s ugly but suddenly a beautiful pass lands right in the perfect spot where only the WR can make the play. Clearly he had enough poor throwscwhere the defender ended up making the play but at just 20 and with his apparently excellent work ethic and attitude you have to believe that can be coached. I was 100% not a Darnold fan but now i’m having to look for positives they are there
  10. I thought that Chad advice was spot on and the more I learn about Mayfield the more it seems that his head is in danger of getting away from football. ironically it was Rosen everyone worried about being the guy who had issues focussing on football but right now, what with the documentary crew following him everywhere pre-draft, the SI front cover and now this. It’s very likely it was the burgeoning Mayfield entourage who if not insisted on this, pushed the opportunity seeing the benefits to ‘the brand’. Right now someone close to Mayfield needs to get a grip and get everyone focussing on football. We are not in Manziel territory yet and he might just be that rarity that thrives on all the noise around him but if I was a Browns fan this would be another red-flag i was Rosen/Mayfield maybe even Allen over Darnold but for sure I love our guys approach at this stage ‘time will tell

    That’s not unlike the vast majority of your posts although you tend to go heavier on the gesticulating

    Exactly, Forte got next to nothing going either, only guy that really made something out if nothing was Powell, I think he’a So underrated. Having a bigger back like Crowell who can actually blast a few holes is a smart move, hopefully improved lineplay plus Crowell means better running game all round. That and the fact Dennison has traditionally gotten production out of lesser talents

    It’s hard to look dynamic at RB when you are being gang tackled the moment you take a hand-off. McGuire didn’t look too pedestrian when he busted off that 69 yard TD! give him some running lanes and space and you’ll see a different back
  15. It’s possible the teams get a non broadcast feed or they may have staff who are plugged into the main production feed and will have access to what is going on beyond what gets broadcast
