  1. That all sounds well and good in theory but, defenses will adjust for all of that and stack everyone up at the line.  You can adjust some for a deficient O line but ultimately you need to be able to run a complete offense.  Game flow and situations will dictate what you need to run, and if you can’t block up front, you can’t block.

    Only one of the TEs came this year.  All the others being discussed came when we were supposedly ignoring the position.

    Wait draft picks get better with experience?  

    2. Herndon was drafted and Walford signed as a UFA this year.

    Washington has perine, thompson and rob kelly.  They draft guice and still their 8th string rb looked better than anyone we have last night.

    For a team that 'wants to run the ball' we put a pathetic amount of resources into oline and rb.

    Agreed.  Maccagnan simply doesn’t place any value on drafting RBs.  2015 3rd round selects Mauldin with pick 82, pick 86 is David Johnson.   2017 second round selects Maye with pick 39, pick 41 is Dalvin Cook.  2017 3rd round selects Ardarius Stewart with pick 79, pick 86 is Kareem Hunt.

    Ryan Clark and Reggie Bush said it best today on NFL Live.. 

    “the different between Darnold in his last season at USC and his short time with the Jets is a fast and wide gap, with that type of processor, he’ll be a star.”

    That’s always great to hear about a young QB.  The ability to take coaching and apply it to your game isn’t easy.  We see QBs who could never adjust or make refinements in their game and suffer the consequences.  Its brought up a lot but it is so significant , Darnold only just turned 21 and is showing nice progress, he will have had two full preseasons, two full regular seasons and two NFL off seasons by the time he is 23, the current age of Baker Mayfield.  He’ll sign his extension at the age of 24.

    Brutal right now, across the league. More of a macro-level discussion, but the number OTs in say the last 4-5 years whom were supposed to stalwarts, but instead have imploded, is staggering. It's become a real problem to draft good tackles. 

    I mentioned this a few years ago, much like these spread offenses have made developing and evaluating QBs harder, it’s done the same thing with OTs.

    Totally agree that Keller has no chance, disagree that it is automatically some kind of cheap shot.  IMO if you ask 100 players 100 will say that they have tackled like that - unless they are offense, then they will say that have been tackled like that.  I don't believe the DB knew Keller wasn't going to be turned around by the time he got there. 

    Swearinger has been a complete trash talking, cheap shotting d-bag since his Gamecock days.  He deserves zero benefit of the doubt.

    Link? Not asking in a sarcastic way, but that I've not read anything about this previously. 

    Him being hated at OSU comes mostly from Alex Boone his former teammate coming out saying that a lot of Pryors teammates at OSU didn’t like him or his attitude.  I don’t think he was beloved at OSU, a bit of a primadona from the first day he stepped on campus.

    John Elway says he might still seek a veteran backup QB

    The Denver Broncos might not be done shuffling backup quarterbacks, the Associated Press reports.

    General manager John Elway said Tuesday that he might still sign a veteran to back up starting QB Case Keenum if he doesn't feel Chad Kelly can win games in a pinch.

    "I'm not going to tell you we're definitely going to stand pat, but I'm not telling you we're going (in) that direction, either," Elway told 103.5 The Fox radio station in Denver.

    The Broncos promoted Kelly over former first-round pick Paxton Lynch this week following their contrasting performances in training camp and in the preseason opener last weekend, when Lynch threw for just 24 yards over seven series with the second string. Kelly had a pair of touchdowns in mop-up duty against the Minnesota Vikings.

    "We've got to have confidence that that guy that's going to be the backup can play and win football games," Elway said. "And so that's why we're still in that process of trying to see if we've got that guy behind Case.

    "Even though Chad played very well on Saturday night — we'll see how he does this week — but if something were to happen to Case, can he come in and continue to win football games for us?" Elway said. "That's the big part of the evaluation process and that's still going on."     

    Like I said yesterday, it’s not just an injury to Keenum that is worrying Elway, he sees him struggling early on and is very nervous.  This will be fun to watch over the next couple weeks.

    I think darnold will get a lot more reps once Bridgewater is out of here. Nobody is knocking on the Jets door yet because they haven’t seen much of him in real games. Plenty of teams that could use a capable number 2 Who may jump their 1

    Taking away reps from Darnold to somehow boost Bridgewaters trade value is lunacy.   Teddy will show what he needs to with the reps he’s been getting.

    At this point, I would prefer to keep him on the roster for now -- unless someone blows us away with an offer.  Anything below a 2 (and I don't see anyone willing to offer that barring pre-season injury to starter on a contending team) and I would rather we hold onto him for now. 

    We could still move him during the season before the deadline, when we will know a lot more about Sam's progress and how our season is going.

    Agreed.  His max value is going to be if a contending teams starter goes down.  That will fetch the highest draft pick.  I still think that teams like Jax and Denver should bring him in as insurance against bad play from their starters regardless of injury.

    What is the floor compensation for the Jets if TB stays this year, gets paid and walks next year.   An end of 3rd or 4th round draft pick?

    Depends on what the Jets do in free agency.  Given the large amount of cap space next year, receiving comp picks probably isn’t going to happen.

    Darnold on his rookie deal has a Cap hit of about what, $8-9M each year for the next 4 years?  We've got plenty of room to pay Teddy well, at least what we're paying McCown right now.

    I don't want to get cute with our sudden "quality QB abundance."  For a team that's been starving for decades at the QB spot we could really use 2 of these guys.....especially if, like me, you're starting to see a potential window of playoff opportunity opening with this defense in the next few years.  I still blame Bill Parcells for having a Super Bowl ready team in 1999 but having no insurance behind Vinny Testaverde.




    Again, that would mean Bridgewater would be happy being a back up.  Sure, it would be nice for the Jets, but the Jets can’t force Bridgewater to stay.

    Winters played most of last year with a torn abdominal muscle.  If you think he isn't that good, fine, but he probably gets a pass on all future questions about his toughness and willingness to be out there

    Agreed, plus this the Jets call right now, I doubt at this point in camp they are leaving the decision up to Winters, especially given his desire to play through injuries.
