  1. I kind of forgot about him, I'd throw him in the pile with Njoku, Gesicki. They all kind of present similar challenges but none of them ever seem to be healthy. Schultz would be my #1 priority FA signing for this team. I think he'd do a ton for this offense and Wilson but all 3 of those dudes would be solid consolation prizes. Engram maybe even my favorite of the 3.
  2. Pretty much until you get to the WR's, who you can bring along, maybe hoping Pickens transitions quickly, but I think Pierce would be a wonderful compliment immediately to Carter. He is a freak, a true-blue bruiser with some break away ability and the kid absolutely loves ball and loves contact. Criminally under used at Florida. Outside of resigning the heart of this team, Braxton Berrios, my #1 offseason priority is Dalton Schultz. I'm fine with Njoku and Gesicki as well but Schultz I think is an emerging player who is the real deal 3 down TE.
  3. I think it depends and, in this situation, I think you're downplaying Allen's impact (which is probably neutered a bit because of the teams he's on). And we're probably going to just agree to disagree here because there might not be a right or wrong answer but rather, just a difference of opinion in value and maybe philosophy but here's how I see it: 5 players from that draft have 20+ sacks, only 1 was taken outside of the first round (Maxx Crosby). 3 of those players have 80+ tackles (Burns, Crosby, Allen). 3 have INT's (Bosa, Sweat, Allen). Only 1 player has all 3, Josh Allen. Mean
  4. Some of those were brutal, no doubt, but this isnt that uncommon, drops happen, tips happen, you see it all the time. That said, if you did a video of the amount of balls Zach dirted or just egregiously missed it would be painful to watch. So these videos are fun but biased and never really prove the narrative it's trying to prove. Do the Jets need to upgrade their weaponz? Yes. Absolutely. Were the weaponz the reason Zach Wilson was awful at times? No. Absolutely not. Just as many egregious misses as there were drops and the other side of this coin is, we saw how the offense tick
  5. Meh, that's a convenient memory of your take but all good. lol I dont necessarily agree you were "on point" if you're considering the circumstances and how things have played out. The first OL taken after Allen/Q. Will was Jonah Williams, who missed his entire rookie season, was part of an OL that let Burrow getting eaten alive as a rookie and eventually injured, to the point where everyone thought they were crazy for passing on Sewell for Chase. He was good, not great this year. The Jets took Becton the following draft, who just missed his entire 2nd season, yet arguably the best
  6. If you're going in order of how they played during their rookie season, IMO, it's: Mills, Jones, Lance, Wilson, Fields, Lawrence. If you're going on who you would draft in a redraft, I think it's: Fields/Lance/Lawrence, Mills, Wilson, Jones Personally, I'm still going on potential in a redraft namely because they all sucked, and this was a very unimpressive rookie class of QB's. Mills is by far the most impressive considering his results and the situation. Jones had a nice season in a perfect situation but was exposed down the stretch and I'd gamble on the we've seen his
  7. Sure but its doesnt change my overall point that IMO Mac Jones, is who he is. Yeah sure, maybe more weapons helps him but if you cant push the ball down field in weather, in Foxborough, does it matter? Time will tell but I think Mac Jones has been exposed. I'm saying all this while putting my foot in my mouth about Josh Allen and I realize that but 2 totally different talents and that's kind of my point. Jones is just extremely limited. But yes, in general the Jets need to worry about themselves.
  8. This is true but I also think the Bills are the shining example of how to bring a QB along, using every available avenue to acquire talent and provide Allen with support, from coaching to drafting, signing free agents and making big time trades. They went all out to surround him with talent, and I do think it's helped him realize his own talent. Still a bit of an outlier but never in a million years did I see him turning into this type of a player.
  9. Ugh, so many threads I need to do this in. Hi, my name is JiFapono. I called Josh Allen, Vince Young after 2 seasons in the NFL and I feel shame.

  11. I posted this in the game thread a bit ago but it belongs here: No Mac Jones wasnt the problem last night but I'm going to stick to my guns and says his limitations are a long-term problem for New England. The great Bill Belicheat, drafted a Qb who lets face it, cant handle the weather conditions of Foxborough. Mac Jones had never seen snow, till this year. I want to preface my, Mac Jones aint all that post with, I'd be ecstatic if Zach Wilson had a rookie season like Mac Jones. That said, I've taken heat for saying I dont think there is much more to see from Mac Jones than what we've
  12. I present to you, the greatest draft ever drafted, fixing everything wrong with the NY Jets in 1 haul. @JoeDoulgas - I'm here. Offer me. 4. Aidan Hutchinson EDGE Michigan 10. DeMarvin Leal DT Texas A&M 35. Nakobe Dean LB Georgia 38. Lewis Cine S Georgia 69. Lecitus Smith

  14. @T0mShane - is a jealous hater wasting his emotions because he doesn't have Jameis Winston level coordination to pull this fancy footwork off
  15. This comparison, I dont see. Like, I somewhat understand the comparison but as the resident Deebo Samuel fanboi around here, they're just slightly different in build and running/play style. Deebo a little lower center, heavy on the bottom half and his stop and go is ridiculous, like a RB and kick return mixed together, which is why he was so deadly in the return game in college as well. He just way more joystick-ish than Burks, IMO That said, I'm biased, I started a thread about him being the "next big play threat in the NFL" the second he declared, I got some push back but as usual, w
  16. I'm on board with a WR early in the draft. I've been tossing back and forth the 3 WR's mentioned in this thread; Wilson, Burks, London. I think all 3 are next level players and present a little different aspect to the position. Wilson - dude a is a smooth, fast twitch, explosive player who you can get the ball to in 30 different ways, and he's got a chance to make a big play. He's good after the catch, looks for extra yards but what you love about his game is he catches it all over the field. At and behind the LOS, up the sideline, over the middle, slants, flares, outs - you see it
  17. Agreed, I thought they asked some great question. Very likable kid. I was intrigued by his answer to the advice question; Rodgers advising him on his footwork and drops and how those effect timing only because I feel like that's one of his biggest areas for improvement. Could be a good sign that he's going to hyper focus on that in the offseason.
  18. Sexy BB has a great ring to it. So much fun to play with, all sorts of different ways you can toy with it and find joy.
  19. I'd do anything to be this fish just for the possibility of flopping around and touching these abs for a second.
