  1. Does anyone have an extra parking pass for next weekend's game against the Redskins? If you do, please PM me. Thanks.
  2. Larry Johnson (KC) Carson Palmer (Cin) Matt Hasselbeck (Sea) Week 4: Tom Brady (NE)
  3. 1) Larry Johnson 2) Carson Palmer 3) Matt Hassellbek
  4. Week 1 Larry Johnson Week 2 Carson Palmer
  5. You guys need to sign Fireman Ed to a big JN contract stat.
  6. O-Line has no push, but decent pass protection (hence Clarke starting over Bender) T. Jones is running a little too choppy... needs to run forward. We have a good receiving corps. D-line has no pass rush, Brady has all day. It is a good thing we drafted Revis.
  7. Tutt is a decent blocker but will be more beneficial to the passing game. Also, Kowalaski and Sean Ryan can be motioned into the backfield and used as a FB. The Jets are going to come out with a high powered passing attack to keep the Patriots on their heels and to hopefully set-up their rushing attack.
  8. Makes sense. TJ might be a bit rusty, so leon will see a lot of PT. Clarke is a better pass-blocker than Bender. Lots of passing today.
  9. Jets 217 Pats 0 -Chad Pennington 15 touchdowns, 700 yards, 0 INT -T Jones 6 rushing touchdowns, 300 rushing yards; 2 receiving touchdowns 100 receiving yards -Leon 3 rushing touchdowns, 200 rushing yards; 3 receiving touchdowns 200 receiving yards - Justin Miller 2 KO returns; 98 & 101 yards -Revis 3 INTs returned for touchdowns; 35, 62, 89 yards -2 Defensive safties; JVilma 100 tackles (52 for a loss); 8 sacks, 1 INT for a touchdown - 65 yards -NUGE 1 FG 78 yards
  10. 1) Having a FO and CS that you can believe in. They do all the little things and keep their focus on the ultimate goal, you can't ask for more. 2) Having a team full of youthful talent. In two drafts Tangini has brought in Brick, Mangold, KC, B.Smith, Leon, D. Coleman, Revis, Harris, Bender, Stucky in addition to players like Vilma, Rhodes, Miller, Cotchery, NUGE, etc. that already existed on this team. All of these guys are leaders and fierce competitors that have a true passion for the sport. 3) Dismantling the Patriots dominance over the AFC East.... starting tomorrow
  11. 8. Carolina Panthers at St. Louis Rams Marc Bulger collected a $65 million contract because of his accuracy and leadership. There will be no doubt what he and Scott Linehan will attack in the opener: the Panthers' safeties. Mike Minter retired and Nate Salley has struggled with a minor knee injury. The Panthers probably will use Deke Cooper and Chris Harris as their safeties. The Rams have a long history of driving safeties crazy with play-action fakes and sending receivers into the middle of the field. The Rams are loaded on offense. As if they didn't have enough with Torry Holt, Isaac Bruce and Steven Jackson, they added tight end Randy McMichael and wide receiver Drew Bennett. Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme hopes to bounce back from a tough 2006 season but he will doing it against a Jim Haslett-coached defense that loves to blitz. 9. Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills Sure, this has the chance of being an upset because the Broncos' defense is changing on the fly and the Bills are at home. The Bills are better on offense than people give them credit for. J.P. Losman is an accurate passer. He has weapons on offense, particularly wide receiver Lee Evans. He also has a good scheme directed by offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild. Mike Shanahan brought in six new players to the Broncos' defensive line, including Simeon Rice, Sam Adams and Alvin McKinley. The problem is getting them on the same page with so little time together. On defense, though, you'd rather be the Broncos than the Bills. The Broncos added players. The Bills lost Takeo Spikes, London Fletcher and Nate Clements. The Bills have had trouble stopping the run, which could mean a 140-yard game for former Bill Travis Henry. 10. Detroit Lions at Oakland Raiders This one is fascinating. The Raiders will go against the Lions with former Lions quarterback Josh McCown likely throwing passes and former Lions receiver Mike Williams being a role player, possibly in the red zone. Here's the other key element: The Raiders drafted JaMarcus Russell instead of wide receiver Calvin Johnson but haven't signed Russell. Now, Johnson gets an early chance to burn the Raiders. The pressure is on the Raiders and Lane Kiffin to win home games against the Lions and Browns and get off to a good start. Kiffin hasn't announced his starting quarterback but expect it to be McCown. Kiffin gains or loses credibility in the locker room based on that decision. The key is winning. Kiffin needs to be right on this one. John Clayton is a senior writer for ESPN.com.
  12. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=clayton_john&id=3007202 Rex Grossman can't escape the pressure. Despite playing in the Super Bowl last season, Grossman remains one of the league's most debated quarterbacks. He spent a lot of time in the offseason studying film. He has worked on his throwing mechanics. Teammates like him. But Bears fans go crazy -- and not in a good way -- when he's on the field. Though he vowed to become a 60-percent passer in an offense that should have more weapons, Grossman took a few steps back this preseason. He'd fumble a snap or throw an interception
  13. Really? I thought it would have been between the TJ and Julius for the W/R spot; but no MJD? Interesting. How come? Hm.. didn't know that about Hackett. Thanks for the info and input RJS!
  14. I am actually also in a 10person league and wouldn't mind some advice for that league either. In that leauge we start 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1W/R, 1TE, 1K, 1DEF Right now my team consists of: QB: Bulger, Garcia WR: Javon Walker, Donald Driver, DJ Hackett, Jerricho Cotchery, Bernard Berrian, Patrick Crayton RB: Steven Jackson, Julius Jones, Thomas Jones, Ahman Green, Brian Leonard TE: Heath Miller K: Gostkowski DEF: Philly I'm thinking: QB: Bulger WR: Driver, Walker, Hackett...? Thoughts? RB: Jackson, T. Jones W/R: Julius/Ahman/Cotchery... not really sure...? TE: Miller K: Gotskowski DEF: Philly Any thoughts on this one?
  15. I am in a 12person league and need a little help setting up my lineup this week. We start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1W/R, 1TE, 1K, 1DEF Right now my team consists of: QB: Hasselbeck, Grossman WR: Fitzgerald, S. Moss, Vincent Jackson, Greg Jennings, Patrick Crayton RB: R. Johnson, MJD, Julius Jones, Thomas Jones, Brian Leonard TE: Owen Daniels, Desmond Clark K: Nugent DEF: SD I'm thinking: QB: Hasselbeck WR: Fitz, Moss RB: Johnson, MJD W/R: Julius or Jones... any thoughts? TE: Daniels...? K: NUGE DEF: SD Thoughts?
  16. Jets have third-down advantage by: Keith Kidd posted: Friday, September 7, 2007 | Print Entry filed under: New York Jets, New England Patriots, Thomas Jones, Leon Washington, Brad Smith, Laveranues Coles, Jerricho Cotchery, Chad Pennington, Tory James, Brandon Meriweather, Randall Gay, Rodney Harrison, Richard Seymour After looking deeper into the New England Patriots and the New York Jets game on Sunday, I noticed that one of the more interesting aspects will be how each team handles third-down personnel groupings. This is an aspect where the Jets actually have a slight edge. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick wrote the book on situational football as far as creating individual mismatches against the various personnel groupings used in multiple spread-offensive formations, but Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer did a great job last season of using a short, controlled passing attack to set up the run. The run wasn't very effective last year, but the addition of RB Thomas Jones during the offseason should help New York run the ball against the Patriots and give the Jets more balance on offense. Coles Jones The key for the Patriots will be how they matchup on the perimeter in their sub-defensive packages on third down, because the Jets can cause a lot of problems for New England on the back end with their multiple-spread packages. And it doesn't help that New England will be without SS Rodney Harrison. Even though Harrison has lost a step in coverage his experience making communication calls is critical and his absence will hinder this secondary when it comes to proper calls and adjustments. Look for Schottenheimer to spread the field with his multiple groupings by detaching RB Leon Washington, backup receiver Brad Smith, and starting wideouts Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery out in the formation to create a four-wide look that will isolate backup corners Tory James and Randall Gay or backup safety Brandon Meriweather in one-on-one situations. Belichick does not normally ask his players to do something they can't, but based on the number of matchups created by this two-by-two look Pennington will be able to come to the line and identify the one that is most favorable for the Jets. The other key element on third down will be how the Patriots decide to attack Jets' QB Chad Pennington in the pocket. The loss of RDE Richard Seymour is obviously a big one, but New England still has a number of weapons that can attack the pocket and the Patriots do a great job of moving defenders around to confuse protection calls and adjustments. That will make it difficult for Pennington and the offense to know where the extra blitzer is coming from. It will be up to Pennington to do a solid job of identifying the middle linebacker and getting the Jets in the right protections against the Patriots zone-blitz schemes. He is a smart, savvy player who manages the game well, and for the Jets to have a chance in this game Pennington and the offensive line must play perfectly. If they do, they can win on third down and possibly win the game.
  17. How is Shotty's Offense not on there? Weird.
  18. There are many creative players in the NFL, players who make special things happen when the ball is in their hands and keep defensive coordinators up at night. But no matter how great these players are, it takes a great scheme or a coach who knows how to get these playmakers the football. Here are the top 10 creative offenses in the NFL. 1. New Orleans Saints The Saints finished the 2006 season with the No. 1 ranked offense in the NFL, so it should come as no surprise that they have plenty of playmakers on the offensive side of the ball. What might surprise some is that coach Sean Payton is the best playcaller in the NFL. He has a tremendous understanding of schemes and how to create mismatches with multiple offensive sets and groupings. It also doesn't hurt that the offense is guided by Drew Brees, the smartest QB in the NFL. 2. Detroit Lions The Lions proved last season that you don't need the best personnel to have one of the best offenses in the NFL. Mike Martz is one of the most creative offensive coordinators in the game. He understands the use of running receivers to different levels on the field to clear out the middle, which is where he likes QB Jon Kitna to throw intermediate crossing routes. Martz has a great understanding of his offense, finds the holes in an opposing defense and continues to exploit that weakness until the defense finds a way to fix it. 3.San Diego Chargers Norv Turner may not have enjoyed a lot of success as an NFL head coach, but he has a track record of producing solid offensive football teams. Turner likes to use many different formations and shifts offensively to create mismatches. He is very good at taking a single personnel grouping and running it from different formations. This leaves defensive coordinators looking at the alignment presnap and wondering if they have the correct personnel on the field. 4. Indianapolis Colts Most people would be surprised to find out that the Colts are actually fairly vanilla on the offensive side of the ball. They use very few personnel groupings and star receiver Marvin Harrison is aligned on the right side of the field about 90 percent of the time. What makes the offense creative is Peyton Manning's ability to audible at the line of scrimmage. No QB can get his team out of a bad play better than Manning. He will change plays or, at times, simply appear to be changing plays at the line and it forces defensive shifts presnap. These shifts can confuse a defensive football team and create many holes for Manning and his plethora of weapons to exploit. 5. New England Patriots When you think of Bill Belichick, the word "creative offense" does not quickly come to mind, but look at the system. You never know what you are going to get from the Patriots on a weekly basis. One week they come out with standard personnel and pound the ball. The next week they will start the game with empty sets and QB Tom Brady aligned in the shotgun. They are one of the toughest teams in the NFL to prepare for because opponents have no idea what offensive system they are going to unveil on game day. 6. Philadelphia Eagles The Eagles are one of the few teams in the NFL that still runs the pure West Coast system, which is based on high-percentage passes to keep a defense off-balance. They have one of the most creative passing games in terms of involving the running backs, specifically Brian Westbrook. The Eagles don't have a lot of weapons on the outside, but they make the most of their personnel by flooding zones or running receivers into certain areas to create a mismatch elsewhere on the field. 7. Denver Broncos Mike Shanahan is one of the league's top offensive-minded head coaches. He too uses a variation of the West Coast offense. Unlike other teams on this list, the Broncos are not only creative in the passing game, they're very creative in the running game, using their zone-block run scheme to create creases for backs. Shanahan does an excellent job of using the run to set up the play-action passing game. It is a creative offense, but the unit has stalled out at times the past few seasons due to average QB play and a lack of multiple playmakers on the outside. 8. Arizona Cardinals Expect new head coach Ken Whisenhunt to use a lot of the offensive philosophies that he employed in Pittsburgh. That will mean more four wide receiver sets in passing downs, more empty sets and a lot more shotgun formations. Whisenhunt does an excellent job of spreading the field to create one-on-one mismatches outside. He has three big receivers that win downfield in jump-ball situations. What will make this offense even more special this season, though, is the trick plays. No coach in the NFL has a bag of trick plays as big as Whisenhunt's and he has the right personnel to use them effectively. 9. St. Louis Rams The Rams will be extremely creative on offense this season. Of course, it's tough not to be creative when you have as many weapons as this teams possesses. Steven Jackson is one of the best RBs in the NFL catching the ball out of the backfield. Drew Bennett is an excellent addition as a No. 3 wide receiver. The Rams have speed, size and an excellent offensive head coach in Scott Linehan. All of that will add up to a lot of creativity on the offensive side of the football. 10. Chicago Bears When you think of the Bears, you think defense first. But with some new additions, this offense has a chance to be very creative. Offensive coordinator Ron Turner now has the "Devin Hester package." The Bears would like to get Hester on the field for at least 20 offensive plays each week. Hester is a versatile player who will align in many different spots within the formations. This also brings the reverse game into play for the Bears. There will be times where they fake the reverse to Hester to get the defense to bite or shift. Even when the ball is not in his hands, Hester will create havoc. His athletic and playmaking ability will give the Bears offense a ton of creative options this season. Jeremy Green is director of pro scouting for Scouts Inc. He has been an NFL scout for 11 years.
