  1. Aren't they worth a look in a regular season game? Everyone seems unhappy with the RB and TE positions. Is it their blocking that sucks?
  2. The 8 best late-round steals in the 2020 NFL Draft, including picks by Cowboys and 49ers Vinnie Iyer 12 hrs ago Several of the best late-round steals this year were wide receivers representing arguably the deepest modern class ever for the position. Others teams got steals because of injury concerns that couldn't be alleviated before the draft. Which teams made out like bandits with players they had no business getting near at the end of their drafts? Here are eight picks th
  3. Jeudy's ability to cut on a dime is amazing and he does it constantly. My biggest fear is knee and ankle injuries with that running style, i..e Dalvin Cook.
  4. Why, when the D-line is batting down passes, there aren't any plays put in where Darnold rolls out? Doesn't Darnold throw well when moving? At least try it... Sorry if this was brought up already.
  5. The Jets dominated the headlines in the opening days of free agency by signing running back Le'Veon Bell and linebacker C.J. Mosley. As a result, some of New York's other free agent acquisitions flew under the radar. Throughout free agency, the Jets added several players who are primed to serve as key contributors in 2019. They might not be the biggest names, but New York did well to make some shrewd moves while other teams engaged in bidding wars for the biggest names on the market. Here's a look at four of Gang Green's most overlooked offseason additions. Trevor Siemian
  6. More on Dortch: Jets wide-open return game creates path for UDFA Greg Dortch by Tyler Calvaruso Most undrafted free agents are nothing more than acquisitions to give a team enough bodies to survive offseason workouts. In some cases, though, undrafted free agents have a legitimate chance to not only make the team out of training camp, but an impact in the regular season as well. For the Jets, that player is wide receiver and return specialist Greg Dortch. In two seasons at Wake Forest, Dortch established himself as one of the most electric players in the ACC. As a redshirt
  7. I wonder how much input Darnold has in evaluating the O-line. Perhaps Harrison is finally getting it and Darnold is comfortable with him. I was surprised seeing Ray Lucas praise him as much as he did.
  8. That game was unwatchable. 2nd and 10 and Bowles doesn't take a 10 yard penalty to push them back?
  9. I know it's a moot point, but this was the case for hanging on to him and possibly getting a 2nd rounder.
  10. I wonder if Lawrence Thomas will stick around? If you think about it, a big fullback is needed for short yardage situations..
  11. Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com stated that he was informed Darnold was the "biggest talk at (the) Combine" among executives at the 2017 event. That's when you know you are dealing with someone special. While Darnold may not have the elite arm strength of Josh Allen or the effortless motion of Josh Rosen, he is, in my humble opinion, the front-runner to be the first quarterback drafted in 2018. Having said that, it will be interesting to see how he handles entering his Junior year as the unquestioned starter, as opposed to being the replacement on a struggling team a month into the season like he w
  12. Here's an in-depth draft profile of this guy from 2015- Sounds like a Joe Klecko type sleeper, maybe? A team looking to add a penetrator to its interior defensive line through the 2015 NFL draft should give serious consideration to selecting Xavier Cooper, the draft’s most athletic defensive tackle, with its first- or second-round selection. No other interior defensive lineman in this year’s draft class—not even projected top-five overall pick Leonard Williams of USC—is as athletic as Cooper. At the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine, Cooper ran a 4.86-second 40-yard dash, the fastest am
  13. Jets may have found a diamond in the rough in DE Xavier Cooper By: Tyler Calvaruso It’s easy to forget about role players on a New York Jets defensive line that features some pretty big names. Leonard Williams draws the majority of praise for his steady play, while Muhammad Wilkerson always winds up in the news for all of the wrong reasons. Even Steve McLendon and Kony Ealy get positive press throughout the season, as the two are solid, established players in the trenches. Then there is Xavier Cooper, a castaway of the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers. The reserve got lo
  14. By: Sam Neumann When it comes to the Jets this season, much of the focus has gone to New York’s up and comers. However, there is one youngster on a team full of them that regularly gets overlooked. With a handful of rookies like Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye and second-year players like Robby Anderson and Jordan Jenkins grabbing attention, no one has noticed Lachlan Edwards’ transformation. He’s the Jets’ most improved player that nobody talks about. Following a miserable rookie season in 2016, Edwards has quietly become one of the better punters in the NFL. He is in the top 10 in
  15. CB Morris Claiborne 2017 Salary: $5 million Besides dealing with the injury bug that has hampered him his whole career over the past couple of weeks, Claiborne has been the No. 1 corner that the Jets needed after last year’s disaster in the secondary. Maccagnan took a chance on bringing in the injury-riddled Claiborne and his gamble has paid dividends. While his injury history remains a cause for concern moving forward, Maccagnan should extend Claiborne as soon as possible in order to avoid a bidding war for his services in free agency. LB Demario Davis 2017 Salary: $2
  16. Cont. "I don't even remember being close to a quarterback in the first half of the season last year," Jenkins said. He spent time in Atlanta this offseason working with the pass rushing guru Chuck Smith, so even as he didn't have any sacks in the first eight games this season, he knew he was better. "Through all the stuff I did this offseason, I feel like I was more effective rushing the passer," he said. "There was still improvement this year in that aspect, compared to last year." Part of Jenkins' improvement also stemmed from Greene emphasizing to his players the impo
  17. FLORHAM PARK -- During spring practices, the Jets' new outside linebackers coach, Kevin Greene, dug into the archives for video from his Hall of Fame playing days. He wanted to set the foundation for his teaching points, so he showed his players some of his 160 career sacks. The gist of Greene's message, as outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins recalled to NJ Advance Media: "I'm just showing you guys what worked for me. You can choose to do it, or you can try and do your own thing. But percentages show that this is what worked." Jenkins eagerly soaked up Greene's advice, and it now see
  18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston will be shut down for "at least" the next two weeks according to Jenna Laine of ESPN. An MRI reportedly revealed "more damage" but nothing structural. The timing is certainly right with the Bucs going nowhere this season and Winston being unable to finish two of the last four games. Winston also seemed in need of a mental and emotional reset after Sunday's blowout loss at New Orleans. These will be the first regular season games missed by the former No.1-overall pick in his three-year NFL career. Hopefully, the Bucs have learned from the
