  1. It *was* a safe pick, in that his floor was high - it's extremely likely he'll be a starter for many years. No one is saying he's a bust. No one is saying he shouldn't start. The issue most people have is that it's extremely unlikely for him to be a real difference maker - and that was somewhat easy to predict even before the draft. Despite all of the announcers gushing over him (which I don't get), my feeling is that his impact on the defense is somewhere around the level of Demario Davis's. Probably less than Davis. Sure, Adams is a rookie, but even with growth, I think people have a hard time imagining someone playing his position (whatever it is) can be a consistent game changer.
  2. Kurt Benkert (Virginia)

    Well, this is essentially his 2nd year playing, and his completion percentage this year is 60.4%.

  3. Claiborne is the only one I'm not sure I agree with... Has he really been that good?
  4. Sure, he's often covered, and no, he's not a #1 receiver. But if you're implying that he's never really open and he just wins 50-50 balls - he's definitely wide open a lot of the time... Here are some examples from this season. Or this one against the falcons Or his 69 yd TD against the fish: I agree that he's somewhat of a one trick pony - but it's a damn good trick!!
  5. He's a little skinny guy, undrafted - I have a soft spot in my heart for him...
  6. Thanks for the analysis! I don't get why Anderson doesn't get more love on this board. He seems to get open deep very consistently for someone who supposedly is a one trick pony, and he high points and catches the ball very cleanly...
  7. Film Review: Week 9 Jets vs Bills

    Thanks for the post! Any idea what's up with Adams and his ankle tackles? He seems to be always diving at people's feet... Is he overanxious or something?
  8. I agree with most of the article, but the part above is kindof like saying "the Jets got good value because the Jets think they got good value."
  9. They should bring back gladiator fights too. $200k to the winner, $100k to the loser's family. Because nothing can possibly be wrong as long as they know what they're getting into. (Not that football players knew.)
  10. Thanks for getting the shot of the play where Anderson throws his helmet. It did seem like he had inside position. But he must have been getting frustrated through the game, was probably open deep a lot...
  11. Buster Skrine per PFF

    Let's see, he's a tiny guy who can't cover but seems like a good tackler. Maybe he should take Darron Lee's spot...
  12. Cut Robby Anderson NOW

    I honestly can't think of a more embarrassingly pathetic (single) play... We were in our own end with, what, 45 seconds left? In a TIE game. And he throws this lame duck up for grabs... FOR NO REASON!! Let's say the defender slips on the turf, and he completes the pass. What does that yield, like a 3 yard gain? I mean, I'd be pissed if a rookie made that play. That'd be embarrassing for a college QB...
  13. Cut Robby Anderson NOW

    Also - how are we talking about Robby's helmet throw, when McCown made what I think is the worst play I've ever seen in a professional football game?
  14. Cut Robby Anderson NOW

    Did anyone see what happened on that play that caused him to be so pissed off?
  15. Cut Robby Anderson NOW

    How was the penalty huge? There was 15 seconds left in the game, we were on our 20 with no timeouts, and I think there was already a holding penalty on the play.
  16. I think it's amusing that Bellichick seems to be the only head coach with half a brain who tries to kick the ball *not* into the endzone, to prevent the touchback. And takes touchbacks when receiving. Does it really take 2 years to figure out, duh, the average starting field position when you take it out of the endzone is like the 15, maybe we should take the touchback to the 25? And that doesn't even include the penalties that can occur - always on the receiving team... I think it's an indication that most head coaches are complete imbeciles....
  17. Blandino and Pereria weigh in

    [Oops, I guess someone else had done pretty much the exact same thing I did, oh well, I guess this is essentially a repost.] I don't think you looked very closely. He regained control extremely quickly, by my 3rd snapshot below. By that 4th picture, he's got both hands on the ball. And when he hits and rolls over, he clearly has good possession. AFAICT, there's enough visual evidence to reverse the call if they had ruled it a fumble. (That's from the following animated gif: https://twitter.com/PeteBlackburn/status/919651084364328961?ref_src=twsrc^tfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cbssports.com%2Fnfl%2Fnews%2Flook-jets-hosed-by-the-awful-replay-reversal-of-all-awful-replay-reversals%2F )
  18. Should the Jets File a Protest?

    The thing I don't understand is that the official explanation said that it was clear that he lost possession of the ball again when he hit the ground. Did anyone see any evidence of that at all? Forget about "clear" evidence... AFAICT he had complete control when he hit the ground, and after...
  19. Film Review: Week 5 Jets @ Browns

    That fade TD to ASJ was one of the easiest looking TDs I've seen in a long time. IIRC @Paradiswas begging us to take ASJ. At his first stop ASJ seemed like a total bust. And now .... the Jets have a TE!
  20. Thanks for doing this! 97 looked pretty good in the backfield, eh?
  21. Does anyone have any context on his 21 MPH top speed? How does that compare to other RBs? (The reason I care is that I think the biggest knock against him was his speed.)
  22. Game Observations (JAX)

    Well, he seems to be getting mentioned about as often as Mo, which is good for one of them...
  23. Game Observations (JAX)

    Plus AFAICT he makes Hack look accurate Yeah, that was some damn fine burst. I guess more evidence that your 40 time isn't everything...
  24. Whether you're for the tank, or for the win - what a horrible play by Bortles on 3rd down in his endzone with 1:50 left in OT. He's rolling out - he has all of this space in front of him. If he runs and tries to get the first down, even if he doesn't make it, the clock is running with no T/Os for the Jets, and his punter will have his comfortable 15 yards...
