    NFL preseason week one reaction: Sam Darnold | PFF

    (No offense) but think VTF made the board unreadable with his Glennon nonsense for like a whole year, and even the Baker stuff was a bit much this offseason, but I do agree with his points here about Glennon, and I agree with his assessment of Baker having a Jeff Garcia type career. When put in that perspective, he’ll be a good QB. But I want more. I think (and hope) that Darnold gets there.
  2. This article appeals to my fandom, but is a whole lot of WTF. (1) we do not have the best QB room. That belongs to GB. It could be Rodgers, Sanchez, and Geno, and it would still be the best QB room in the league. (2) McCown will not fetch more than a conditional extra-late round pick that can move up to just a late round pick. What McCown provides the rookie QB and the OC on the Jets this year is far more valuable than the Jets 2019 6th round pick who will be out of the league by 2021. (3) No one will give the Jets “a haul” for a Teddy on a 1 year deal, but he will still fetch more than McCown. He is also more expendable from a Jets long-term vantage given that he’ll want to start and will not re-sign with us. Combine that with point #2, and there should be absolutely no way that the Jets move McCown and keep TB. That would be stupid.

    serby's on board with darnold

    I have no idea what I just read.
  4. Namath is the only QB I would have taken that predates my existence- for obvious reasons. Congrats. Hopefully we do this again next offseason. I have some fun wrinkles that we could try if interested @Paradis
  5. Sam threw 3 TDs on 3 consecutive plays - each one harder than the last. The fact that only 1 of them counted is not on him. 3 against DC Walmart employees > 2 against NYC metro Walmart employees. edit: he also only had 1 true incompletion in his first 9 attempts and displayed pocket presence, mobility, and playmaking ability with his arm when the pocket broke down. Then he was shut down for the rest of the game except for the third down rollout to the left and perfect pass throwing on the run against his body.
  7. I'm loving this thread. Great work guys. Keep it up!

    It's like Christmas Eve

    That's awful. Truth be told, my wife and I spent 13 days in April touring Naples, Amalfi Coast, and Rome. Last September we did northern Italy. In general, Pizza in Italy outside of Naples, was awful. I don't mean not great - I mean awful like I'm mad we spent our time and money on it. I'm sure this will be controversial on this forum, but the best pizza I've had of the four major sub-types that I enjoy (Neapolitan, Italian-American, NY, and greasy american) I've had is in CT. Neapolitan from a small town in CT called Branford where the owner/chef came from a small village outside of Naples three years ago. Phenomenal stuff.

    I'm a vegetarian Indian-American, and I guarantee you my homemade, crispy, seasoned, 00 flour thin crust...topped with vodka sauce, caramelized onions, sauteed broccoli and garlic, real mooz and pecorino, and homemade chili oil will beat any pizza you've ever eaten. Ever.

    Christmas at my house is homemade pizza and good ole Coca-cola. And no joke, my wife and I agreed on Tuesday that that's what we're doing for Sam Darnold day today. So today really is Christmas for me. And I'm not even christian or italian!

    Around the NFL - Preseason Week 1

    Whose mans is this?
  15. If you’re looking at both on the same play, you’re taking a sack. It’s telling that you didn’t answer my second question, because you know the answer would weaken your argument. The correct answers are: you’d look at Kearse first when you need a first on 3rd and 7, and you’d look at Robby first if you’re looking to call a shot play on 1st and 10 from your own 35. Stating that Robby is not a possession receiver is not slighting him. It’s a fact. He stretches the field and can hit a big play any time he’s on the field, but a possession guy he is not. Randy Moss also wasn’t a possession receiver, and he’s my favorite WR ever. Nothing wrong with knowing who you are and playing to your strengths.

    Trade for Mack?

    I wrote this in another thread but it makes more sense here: The only big dollars Mac should be spending on Defense is a proven generational talent like Aaron Donald if he becomes available at the end of this year. That’s it. Defense can be drafted. In general, defenders (specifically DEs) and OL can come in and make immediate impacts at a greater rate than offensive skill position guys. Draft an LT, a C, a DE over the next two years. Buy the skill guys over the next few years. If Darnold is the real deal and the OL becomes 90% of what our 2009 OL was, you don’t need all-pros at the skills, just guys who will do their jobs. Those guys come available in FA every year. Go all in on ‘20-‘22 (years 3,4,5 of Darnold’s rookie contract) and win me a god damn super bowl.
  17. At 24th overall out of 24 teams, all the QBs that would have made a difference were well past gone. “Sooner” wasn’t an option for me.
  18. I know all about those SuperChargers and how Bill Walsh and Don Coryell combined to turn the passing game on its head (Walsh is my all time favorite coach and I’ve read a lot about him). I know I would have won over a few votes had I taken Fouts. But I was 1 when Fouts retired. I didn’t get to watch him play, so I didn’t get to determine for myself whether Fouts was the catalyst for the whole thing, or whether he was just surrounded by great offensive talent and had exceptional coaching/playcalling. I don’t just go by numbers or rings (which is why I’d take Elway over Montana or Rodgers over Brady), so for the QB position, I wanted to know I was getting a real talent - regardless of how it would affect the voting. To me, this was the only real, mobile, playmaking talent available. That doesn’t mean he’s the 24th greatest of all time, it just means he’s what I wanted at my QB position:

    Darnold #1 after pro day

    If I recall correctly, his avatar featured Syracuse, and I hate orange men. And short people, but mostly orange men.

    Darnold #1 after pro day

    Yea I didn’t think so either. Pretty sure it was whether onions belong in marinara or whether it’s called sauce or gravy.

    Darnold #1 after pro day

    I liked him. He was on Ragu's site for a while. I haven't been there in months so not sure about recently.
  23. Rivers was high in consideration too, but I can't discount his many (many) postseason failures. Stafford was as well. So my final list came down to Gannon, Wilson, and Luck. I was initially set on Gannon in the mid-rounds, but ultimately when it came time to choose, I looked at some of the other teams and saw some gnarly front 7s, and wanted a guy who had outstanding mobility and could make plays from outside the pocket. Ultimately, I decided that I personally would have taken Russell over Gannon to start a team if I had to, so I went with him. Again, I'm not saying I'm bound to my pick, or that he's the 24th greatest QB in history, but I like it for the purposes of this league.
  24. Couldn't. For my QB, I wanted one that I got to watch play with my own eyes. I never got to see either of the two you mentioned. Elway, Marino, Montana, Young, Favre, Rodgers, Peyton, Brees, Kurt, Big Ben...they were all taken. The only guy I would have considered taking without having seen play was Namath. Also, I wanted a mobile guy who could create on the move. So Rich Gannon and Matt Ryan were out of question for me, and I didn't like McNair for this (those were the only 3 recent MVP winners not taken). No one left was mobile except for Luck and Wilson. I went with Wilson, but it was a coin flip. It's OK. Even if Russ Wilson is the Trent Dilfer of this league, he'd still have a championship ring. I like my team that much.
  25. And he'll be Geno Smith if he shows up on a Sunday for a MNF/TNF game.
