Joe your being unnecessarily antagonistic last couple days. You are constantly criticizing threads people are making and really making the board a drag to read. If it doesn’t stop I’m gonna give you  some time off, I honestly feel like you need a break man.

Thanks for the warning.

All the Chess Pieces are Beginning to be Positioned for the Inevitable Watson Push!


It’s been quiet on the Deshaun Watson front recently, as the disgruntled star QB appears to be at a stalemate with the Texans. But that hasn’t stopped teams from apparently planning for that stance to change.

The Carolina Panthers made a number of roster moves this week that flew under the radar – but may be designed to clear cap in case Watson became available. Once a “dark horse” to land the star QB, the team appears to be positioning itself to be a major player.

Carolina has cut four players in the past week: former Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kawann Short, safety Tre Boston, defensive end Stephen Weatherly and punter Michael Palardy, according to CBS Sports. The moves collectively freed up $25.7 million in cap space, now putting them around $40 million under the cap.

Then, Carolina converted a majority of center Matt Paradis’ base salary into a signing bonus, pushing that money into the future and creating another $5 million in cap space, according to ESPN.

On Monday, Sports Illustrated also revealed that the team is planning to move on from current quarterback Teddy Bridgewater due to his “physical limitations.” Bridgewater does have $10 million guaranteed in 2021, making a cut a bit tricky, but all signs point to the team moving on under center.

All of the moves suggest Carolina is trying to make a run at Watson, who played college football at Clemson – one state away. CBS Sports reported that Panthers owner David Tepper is “fairly consumed” by the prospect of landing the star QB, and they are expected to be major players if he becomes available.

The question, of course, is whether or not he will become available. Houston continues to insist they have no interest in trading Watson. But if the stalemate continues and if the Texans loosen their stance, expect Carolina to make a major push.

For those complaining that the Jets would have to give up too much to get and accommodate Watson, the team you’re really referring to is the Panthers.

I like you. You hated the social media diva before it was cool also.


We could have had Watson or Mahomes over this already instead of fighting about draft compensation. 


This single play is the most Jets thing ever. Instead of a franchise QB we got the unstoppable turnover machine vs Taylor Swift with worse hands
