  1. I'd say if our draft picks turned into sure things, I'd definitely do it. However, looking at the history of the league, that doesn't seem to be the case. Our history specifically, is even worse than the collective league's history. So, no.
  2. They’ll need a cover now that he’s completed a full year of the HGH routine. Brady had TB12 as his cover, I guess Mac’s will be training with olympians.
  3. Deebo, AJ, and Terry are all not participating. Still hoping we can acquire either AJ or Terry.
  4. Hate the Raiders, but their fans have every single reason to be optimistic. A top 10 QB, top 2 WR, top 3 TE, top 7 RB, and a great offensive mind calling the shots. I wouldn't even begin to know how excited I'd be if the Jets ever put something like that together. The people hating on Carr probably are the same ones who think Zach Wilson is the next Patrick Mahomes. Meanwhile, I'd give up so much for Zach Wilson to become Derek Carr. Unfortunately, everything he's put on tape looks more like David Carr.
  5. 100%, true. Thoughts in my head since reading that about an hour ago: A stripper trying to perform on the pole with parts of multiple chickens popping out of multiple parts of her g-string The line outside of the strip club with people corralling multiple chickens waiting to get in Waitresses attempting to navigate through a packed strip club with humans and chickens The blended smell of stripper juices, perfume, and a chicken coop The nearby gas station which keeps reserves of chickens so that when guys want to go to the strip club and only have cattle, ox, or pig, they can stop and exchange them for chickens to be used in g-strings The velocity of stripper chickens
  6. I have an international economics degree and wrote my graduating paper on the impact of education and technology on developing economies. I've worked at 3 top hedge funds, and currently am the head of a global team for the largest CIB in the world. In all of my years of studying monetary policy or practicing it in the economy, never, ever have I come across a thought as glorious as this.
  7. Thanks. Including this year's draft, he's only given out one grade 5 or higher to Trevor Lawrence. With that perspective, this year's grades are less jarring.
  8. So, since I've never seen this before, for reference, is there a list somewhere that details his past projections? I get that this isn't a top-heavy draft and doesn't have any of the traditional blue-chip prospects. Still, without having the past projections as reference points, it's a little jarring to not see a single 5 or 6 graded player this year. Maybe that's the norm?
  9. Players take a look at what's going on in the real world, and everyone has or is leaving NYC for better weather, communities, taxes, cost of living, etc. On top of that, this franchise hasn't produced a SB birth in any current player's lives. Based on last season's QB play, the franchise isn't trending towards one anytime soon, either. On top of that, this GM has (rightly) been careful with his boss's money. Even the big money contracts he's given out have been good value. FAs/Sign and Trade candidates are looking for the Maccagnan type that will overpay. Add it all up, and this should not be news, it's business as usual. Frankly, I'm not upset. I don't want the Tyreek type of player anyways.
  10. #10, Penning. Yea, something very PTSD-y about all of that. Hard pass.
  11. Agreed with both. I"m a huge Hitchcock fan, and when viewing it through that lens, it was a disappointment - especially with the actors involved. That said, it wasn't a terrible way to spend 1.5 hours, and there were some amusing parts to it even if they weren't meant to be.
  12. I really hope JD stays away from him. He is not a good route runner, he doesn’t block, and there might be something off upstairs. Not worth the draft comp plus a new contract. It’s not that I’m against spending for good players. I would have loved to gotten and paid Amari or Adams or AJ Brown. It’s just that I don’t think Metcalf is as good as his reputation, and will only get worse on a team that doesn’t have a borderline HoF QB throwing to him.
  13. I mean - he single handedly made Noodle Arm a first round QB. There is no higher praise you can give a WR.
  14. That’s precisely my point. In a time when passing was difficult, he played on a team with a HoF QB and a coach that practically invented the modern day passing attack that every team runs. Put differently, Rice got to play in today’s wide open passing offense when no one else in the league was playing it or knew how to defend it. I’m not taking anything away from Rice or Owens. Both are incredible and are in my top 3 of all time. - I loved watching Owens play and I always made it a point to trade away my defense for him in Madden every year. - Rice was drafted a year before I was born, but he played on the same team as my hometown hero Steve Young, so I followed both of their careers intently from a young age and loved Rice even when he went to Oakland. Still, when you’re talking about the scariest receiver to defend, it goes to Moss and I don’t think it’s even close. Looking at overall stats doesn’t do Moss justice, because he took so many years and plays off - and that definitely is a huge mark against him. But so many ppl in this thread alone have commented about the fact that Rice and Owens gave 110% on the field every time while Moss didn’t. And even then, Moss is considered top 2 or 3 all time. Imagine if he had given it 100% every play?
  15. Randy Moss is the GOAT WR. Jerry put up better stats for longer, but he also played for a coach and on a team that was the actual embodiment of “playing chess when the rest of the league was playing checkers”. Megatron and TO are honorable mentions. Larry Fitz falls just outside of the top 5 because he simply wasn’t as physically gifted. When Randy wanted to be “on”, he was the best ever, and was nearly impossible to defend. He was also must see TV.
  16. Let’s see how much Bowles likes Brady’s incompletions now! Bowles deserves an opportunity to work with a legit franchise and have a legit team. Happy for him. But my “**** Brady” default settings ultimately means that I’ll have to root against Bowles this year. Unfortunate.
  17. Fun thread. AJ would definitely be number 1 on my list out of those 3. DK wouldn’t be on my list. so really: 1) AJ 2) Deebo 3) save the picks for the draft
  18. Lol Jets. It's so perfect that the current sh*t streak of 2 round 1 WRs over the last 25 years is directly related to taking an unspectacular Keyshawn Johnson 1st overall because Billy P didn't want to guarantee the #1 pick to HoF NFL Legend Peyton Manning.
  19. I feel confident about the Colts vote I just registered.
  20. LOL Baker so mad. I get what the colts are doing. They have a closing window and need to try everything to take advantage - similar to the Rams last year. I’ve just always felt that Ryan was/is overrated, and have had many arguments about this through the years at JI and JN. I’ve always felt that he was more of a game manager and that the falcons were trying to make him more than he was. Maybe a change of scenery, a great offensive coach, and a top 3 RB in the league will help him out.
  21. League average would be at 22ppg. Only two teams scored above 30ppg. The top 10 offenses all scored over 26.5ppg. The Jets were at 18ppg, and were the 28th ranked O. Those numbers are also inflated by the two highest scoring games of 2021 being started by QBs no longer on this team. I fully appreciate the idea of complimentary football. I agree that the best way to win games is to support the offense by fielding a strong defense. However, complimentary football can only be achieved if all facets are playing well. In our case, the O flat out sucks. If we were around 23ppg and it was clear that the O was good enough but the D was holding us back, I’d agree with you. Unfortunately that’s not the case. And, we’ve already sunken heavy resource into a QB on a rookie deal. We have 2 more years to find out if he’ll be worthy of an extension, play on a lame-duck contract, or need to be discarded. I’m ok with an Edge in Round 1, but the other 3 premium picks this year should go O. I know they won’t, but they should.
