  1. Offseason news/rumours

    Because that is what he will seek (big money) if he has a big year. And someone will give it to him and I would not want it to be the Jets. I would not classify White as young since he will be 27 start of next year. Only way he comes cheap is if he stays healthy and has a mediocre year. But again, would not be interested in that with a young QB. There are two types of WR IMO that are perfect for a young QB (aside from a stud in his prime - i.e. Brown, Hopkins today). 1) Vet on the downside that can still be productive but also offer some leadership/safety net for the young QB till you find a young stud and 2) The young stud that can mesh and grow up with a young QB. White does not fit into either of those categories. He is just not an attractive option for us under any scenario IMO.. Agree to disagree on this one.
  2. Offseason news/rumours

    You can't compare Q and Anderson to White. Q and Anderson have actually had some level of success in the league. White is a huge bust so far. Three years, played a total of 5 games and has not shown any promise during the games he has played. As a matter of fact, I would say White is the biggest bust of the 2015 draft hands down. If your looking to compare him to anyone on our roster it is Smith. If Smith suddenly stayed healthy and had a 1,000 yard receiving year, would you pay big money to lock him up if you were another WR needy team? If your answer is no, then why would we want White under the same circumstance.
  3. Offseason news/rumours

    Not worth it bro, injuries kill talent. Would not have faith in a player like that. 1. He has a good year and someone over pays for him 2. More of the same form him and not worth the time or roster spot Not to mention he is getting old quickly as he will be 27 start of next years camp. There will be much better options for us via FA or the draft then White.

    Same logic as you have given for giving up on Devin Smith from your past posts. Pass on White. Other fish in the sea.

  6. Bold predictions

    Let's have some fun: Teddy wins job out of camp, but then is very pedestrian during the season and Darnold takes over week 6 Crowell leads team in rushing with 1200 yds Leggett and Herndon are on the field at the same time frequently and create match up nightmares that lead to comparisons of the Gronk/Hernandez Pats days Q regresses from his injury unfortunately and becomes a non factor in his last year in the league Hanson takes over starting WR duties by week 4 Williams leads team in tackles Nickerson starts day 1 as the slot corner pushing Skrine to 4th CB Leo makes All Pro team and has 11 sackes Copeland becomes our edge guy and finishing with 9 sacks Adams / Maye become viewed as the best Safety tandem in the league and combine for 10 INTs Tru is spectacular in coverage but ends up with only 1 INT
  7. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    I get you. He does have a ton of experience in the NFL to share though which can't be a bad thing (no matter what kind of career he has had)
  8. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    I actually look at your point of him not being Manning and him being below average BUT stayed in the league as long as he has as a big advantage in knowledge he can pass on. The "little' things that have kept Josh around will make a QB with much more talent that much better. Ultimately, as you said, we really don't know at this point but I think odds are high he can pass on some real good knowledge to Sam.
  9. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    As you said, great article. My biggest take away is our GM has a plan. He and his team worked their butts off scouting and even if Darnold did not fall to us I am confident they would have picked a quality guy. Should remove doubt to any Macc nay sayers. He has a plan and is working hard to execute. Can't ask for more ....
  10. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    He had 2 drops in 16 games last year. That = great hands. https://www.foxsports.com/nfl/new-york-jets-team-stats?season=2017&week=100&category=RECEIVING&opp=0&sort=2&qualified=0&sortOrder=0 I don't disagree with the me first attitude with the Pro Bowl and also he wanted very much to hit 1,000 receiving yards. He is still immature, like most WRs frankly.
  11. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    That is a leader
  12. Offseason news/rumours

    DL? Agreed .. a ton more upside.
  13. Offseason news/rumours

    Corey Coleman could be had. I like him, although he has not stayed healthy his first two years. Would do a 4th or 5th for him. Thoughts?? http://rotoworld.com/player/nfl/11278/corey-coleman
  14. Offseason news/rumours

    Agreed. I think we have won that with Curtis Martin for decades anyway.

    Please stop - nightmare scenario lol
