  1. Game 1, 2018: @ Cleveland Browns [TNF]

    I remember it well. Freeman McNeil led the league in rushing that year but was useless in the mud
  2. Game 1, 2018: @ Cleveland Browns [TNF]

    Lol it’s been less than a year. After being 3-2 we lost leads against NE Miami and Atlanta. Plus the Carolina game where we had a 4th quarter lead but gave up scores on a fumble return and a punt return. I was pretty frustrated by those outcomes
  3. Le'Veon Bell

    No doubt Bell is the better talent but for 1/20th of the price they have a kid with the potential to put up solid numbers in both the run and pass game. Connor cannot run the ball 31 times a game but 60-80 yds on 15-20 carries plus 4 or 5 receptions a game seems doable in the Pitt offense.
  4. Le'Veon Bell

    So James Connor ran for 135 yards and 2 TDs plus had 5 receptions for another 57 yards. I know it’s only week one but It probably makes Pitt question if they really need Bell. It also makes it hard for any team to justify paying Bell big money when his numbers were equaled by a 23 year old late 3rd round pick making under a million.

    But next week he’ll throw 4 ints.
  6. Cuts

    Just like Mac was allegedly under orders to sign Revis and vets, Idzik was under orders to dump Revis. Our passing D went from 2nd in 2012 to 22nd in 2013 and 14th in 2014. I feel pretty confident in saying we would have been a better team if Revis had been here in those years. Idzik wasn’t a great GM but he was saddled with the previous regimes scouting dept and HC. His attempts to replace Revis were a total failure but what I did like about him is that he apparently agreed with me that the OL is an important part of the offense and drafted 4 OL in his 2 years, or twice as many as Mac in 4 years. Sure they weren’t good but two of them plus 2 of his free agent OL are still on the team. I am also concerned about Bowles but hopefully his d will improve with the acquisition of a shut down corner
  7. Khalil Mack

    Hugh was a very good pass rusher but he was gone in 98. I remember reading or hearing that he and Parcells didn’t get along. Abraham was drafted in 2000

    It doesn’t.mean Mac would sign thm anyway. I’m surprised he took a chance with Garcia.
  9. Teddy Bridgewater

    I think the few of us that have been following the Jets for 50+ years with only one Super Bowl appearance almost 50 years ago have a right to whine 😊. For what it’s worth, i dont think it was a terrible trade but I would have liked to have kept the draft pick. We will have more of Mac’s 6th round picks on our roster than his 2nds the only chance we had of getting a 2nd for him would have been if a team, with no decent backup, lost their starter. There is no guarantee that that would happen so apparently Mac made the best deal he he could.

    Cuts should start today. I hope some decent OL are cut by other teams because of salary or overcrowding. I really want to at least see an upgrade for Qvale and Ijalana
  11. Teddy Bridgewater

    Also, trading Teddy for a third at this point was more or less what I expected. The only way we would have gotten more is if a starter went down. So,IMO, a 3rd for a backup QB was a good deal. Also trading him out of our conference made sense. What bothers me is losing the 6th round pick. I have high hopes that most of Macs 6 rounders will be contributors - McGuire, Nickerson, Jones, Fatukasi and Cannon
  12. Teddy Bridgewater

    Patriots didn’t tag Jimmy G since he was on his 4th year. My guess is that they didn’t want to franchise him thus the trade. Franchising Teddy next year would cost over 25 million. To me that would not make any sense
  13. Teddy Bridgewater

    From a financial standpoint, if you start playing Teddy and he starts meeting some of the goals in his contract, his salary increases up to a possible 15m. Teddy has no future here. I understand every team starts the season thinking they are going to make the playoffs so I can see that Bowles could feel that Teddy gives him a better chance to win this year. However, imo, it’s more likely that we will struggle to get points regardless of the QB, Bowles would be more likely to be fired if he has the number 3 pick sitting on the bench with a clipboard. Starting Darnold gives him a sort of grace period. He will be able to justify a poor record because he started a rookie QB and was building for the future. Lastly, I think Darnold is ready to start. He has shown the poise and ability required of an NFL starter. What he’s lacking is the experience. I’m sure he’ll have some rough patches but as long as he learns from his mistakes and the organization supports him, he should be fine in the long run.
  14. Teddy Bridgewater

    Ideally that would be great but Jax has 26m invested in Bortles and they have Cody Kessler as his backup. Some might disagree but I think Kessler can be a solid QB, at least as a backup/sometime starter. I think Cleveland mishandled their QB situation last year. In 2016 Kessler was a decent game manager for a terrible team. I am not close to the situation but last year it seemed they just forced Kizer into the starting role and gave up on Kessler despite his 92.3 passer rating in 8 games from the year before. This year they let both go but it was probably more about the new GM wanting his guy.
  15. Predict the 53 man roster

    I had hopes for him but he hardly played in game 3 getting only 3 snaps but his competition, Thomas only saw 6 so it probably comes down to how he performs in game 4. Or it could be we just carry 4 TEs
