Various Observations

- For the first time ever I actually wouldn't mind if we lose the rest

of our games.  Anything that makes access to Marcus Mariota, Amari Cooper

or Jameis Winston easier the better

Doesn't matter what we want or don't want. We're likely to win at least 1-2 more games, and be out of the running for the top picks.

 

- I'm petrified of Winston because of his off the field garbage.  But

after watching him this weekend against FLA I'm also concerned about

his footwork.  From what I've heard from retired QB's on TV (Warner,

Esiason, Pennington) accuracy of your throws comes from your feet.  And

Winston's feet seem to be all over the place when he throws.  They'll

be pointing straight as he tries to throw to his right and his throws

sail.  Four INT's was Geno-like and that's not acceptable

Of course the Jets, if they're in position, will draft the "troubled" QB prospect. We always draft the wrong guys, or guys with issues, or workout wonder guys, or other guys who are exceptionally "suspect" as to their future potential or attitude or work ethic or criminality.

 

- As I said before if we go after Mariota WE MUST BRING IN A HC/OC WHO

KNOWS HOW TO RUN Chip Kelly's offense!!!  It would make no sense to try

to convert him to a pocket QB

Don't hold your breath, we're not running Chip Kelly in 2015.

 

- I love Cooper not just for his talent but the way he conducts himself

on the field. As he was killing AUB there were no "Santonio Holmes

displays" he would just catch balls and score TD's and hand the ball

back to the ref like Curtis Martin.  How refreshing

Martin-types are few and far between in 2015. Everyone is an egotistical showboat drama-queen in the NFL today. 

 

- Never thought much of Marvin Lewis as a coach but he won a game by himself

yesterday.  TB had moved to the CIN 20 yard line and was setting up for

a game winning FG.  But Lewis threw his challenge flag to get the ref's

attention and finally call a time out.  Which allowed the booth to review

TB's last play and they had too many men on the field.  So they negated

TB's last completion and then tacked on a 5 yard penalty which moved them

out of FG range

Lewis is Rex Ryan. He'll never win anything meaningful, and does just enough (or gets lucky enough, or is liked enough) to not get fired.

also a supposed "defensive genius" who just isn't.

 

- Watch out for SEA in the NFC they've gotten healthy and they are playing

with that nasty edge they had in the playoffs last year.  I'm going to be

very surprised if they don't win the NFC West over ARZ.  ARZ is struggling

to score points with Stanton and I think they are going to stumble

SEA will be active in the post, but will not be in the Super Bowl.

 

- I guess the magic dust has worn off of Brian Hoyer in CLE.  Another awful

performance against BUF, it just shows that you can't judge a QB on a

couple of decent games

Hoyer is a JAG.

Awesome post. I agree with all of it. Stay away from hoyer and Winston. Try and get marriota or cooper and I would be happy.

Glad you're here! One of the best posters from JI.

 

I think that the dream scenario for a Jets offseason is Jim Harbaugh at head coach and Mariota in the first round.

 

Also I couldn't agree more about Amari Cooper. I think he's the real deal and will be a real force in the league. He's the 1B option for me in the first and probably the more likely pick because I don't know if the Jets will pick high enough in the first to get Mariota.

I'm not in love with Hoyer, but Buffalo has a serious D.  Board logic is that Vick and Geno suck, so the Bills D is mediocre, but they have been a top 5 D most of the year.  

 

Yeah, last year they were a much different team under Pettine...gave up almost 400 points IIRC.

SEA is a very difficult team to beat right now. They are healthy. They are well coached. That was a big match up last week and they exposed the SF offense. They lack speed on the outside. That allowed them to contain Kap.

This week SEA will face a very tough Philly team. People are talking about the Eagle O and it is very difficult to face, but that D is coming up fast. Remember this Eagle D is on the field quite a bit. The really held Dallas well last week.

Sanchez has big game experience as does Wilson. One of the major games to watch and enjoy this weekend.

Dolphins OC Bill Lazor was on Chip Kelly's Philly staff last season. He also coached in Seattle '08-'09 as QB Coach when Idzik was there.

I have been thinking the same thing. But his skills are rare, especially with that build. Why can't a team just draft this guy and put him in the shelf? Why is that not possible in football anymore? A year or two learning the NFL and growing up a little as well. He could seriously have a chance. Too bad that won't haplen.

 

What "skills" are you people talking about? The "skill" to throw 4 picks in one half of a football game? Winston is complete garbage and is an absolute LOCK to bust in the pros. You don't flush a top-5 pick down the toilet and set the team back several years for someone like that - it's utter lunacy.
