  1. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    Let's grab whichever one they don't. Both are great players at positions of need.
  2. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    Pretty sure nobody calls him anything better than average around here when he's healthy. Only reason it sounds like everyone else thinks he's an all-pro is because you think he shouldn't even be in the NFL. I'm ready to move on after this season or next (whenever his guaranteed money is up) if he doesn't become more consistent and shake the injury bug.

    Shell only played 12 games, Winters had a torn bicep from week 2 on. Hard to say we were injury free.
  4. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    Pretty much every position across the line as individuals are average which hopefully leads to an average line. There are no more Johnson's or Winters playing with a torn bicep. Lets all hope for average line play.
  5. Offseason news/rumours

    Is there some long list of ex Jets beyond Danny Woodhead who went from NY to NE and flourished? I don't understand this whole narrative of players leaving the Jets and becoming great Patriots.

    Pretty sure they graded out solid overall in pass protection actually if you want to go all PFF. It was their run blocking that was horrendous. I remember seeing that somewhere.

    Quoting PFF as gospel is not a good idea and I like their work too.

    Sounds like a major upgrade lol. Very cool
  9. 1(3). Sam Darnold, QB, Southern California

    While I don't think they are good by any means they aren't a liability either. To clarify I don't think you have to worry about shell shocking Darnold and him running for his life. They actually graded out well in pass protection which is key for a young QB and should only improve on that. The issues are with run blocking so lets hope the addition of Crowell can help push the pile and keep Darnold in short passing situations. I'm more worried about putting Darnold in 3rd and long then him running for his life.

    I was thinking the same thing but he really does remind me of him without the attitude. Hope we can put a better team around him then SD did in his prime.
  11. Kickoffs to be "modified"

    The lawsuits only happened because the NFL hid the results of their concussion testing from the players. And for that reason they should pay up to take care of those guys. Now that it's out in the open and guys are still willing play the game it's hard for them to sue the NFL if anything happened long term. Just be open and honest and these guys will have to make their own decisions on whether to play or not. Can't just play a violent game knowingly that it could cause long term health concerns and then sue if you do. Doesn't work like that. All they need to do is take care of these guys after they retire with life long health coverage and we can all move on. If you play a certain amount of years (1, 2, 3, 4, whatever) you should be offered lifelong health coverage as compensation. If they remove the kickoffs it will hurt the sport. Make them safer as best you can but they can't remove it all together. Hell have the defense line up at the 50 or oppentent 40 wherever they typically are on average when the returned catches the ball and not be able to rush the returner until he catches the ball so the collisions between them and the blockers are not as great (IDK). Removing it all together though is a bit much. Like taking that out of the game is going to make it safer. These guys are still at just as much a risk on normal plays too. Don't see how a kickoff is so much more dangerous. There are special teams guys that need the kickoff or they don't have a job. They better think this through before just pulling the plug.

    The more an more I read into this kid the more I like him. I see Phillip Rivers in his game.
  13. Offseason news/rumours

    Robby isn't going anywhere. Not this year at least. You guys jumped to conclusions way too quickly it seems on this one.
  14. Is it me or does it feel like we are going to see us with 4 guys that are all predominantly suited for the 5-tech on the line and just have them all 1-gap and try and penetrate. Lee will play the SAM, Williamson the Mike and Adams the hybrid Will/SS with the third DB being (Skrine/Nickerson). That puts a bunch of run stuffers on the line to keep the LB's like Lee and Adams clean to fly to the ball. I feel like we see guys like Cooper/Shepard and Williams rushing off the DE spots with McClendon and Pennel inside. Then on 3rd you see Williams and Shepard kick inside with Jenkins and Mauldin on the field at the DE. Seems like we loaded up on all these 5-tech's for a reason and I'm just trying to figure out why. Either that or we run Williams and Shepard/Cooper at 5-tech with Pennel/McClendon at NT which is more natural. Williamson/Lee ILB and Jenkins at OLB with Adams roaming as that SS/LB. We are very versatile in that regard so Bowles can get back to blitzing again from all over the field. Should be fun to watch this defense lineup and see what Bowles does.

    Crosby and O'Neil are still out there who I think both could be starting LT's. Not sure how long they will be out there for though.
