  1. Week 2: MNF Browns vs Jets

    Besides Darnold, Smith was the only player I was excited we drafted since Wilkerson in 2011. Besides Cooper, Smith was my favorite WR in 2015. Dallas now has 3 WRs I was high on in Cooper, Gallup and Smith. I wish him well.
  2. Week 2: MNF Browns vs Jets

    After the first game, I’m really not impressed with Gase. II know it was only one game, I know things can change but right now I have no faith in our offense (even if Darnold was playing). . Last year Gase was in the top 3 of using 3WR, 1 RB and 1 TE. In the first game he did that over 90% of the time. There were few, if any, formations with 4 or 5 WRs, 2RB or 2 TEs. Bell played well out but he played 100% of the snaps, which imo is crazy. Looking at the other top RBs, Barkley with 79% came the closest. Kamala and Mack were at75%, Cook and Gurley just under 70%. No wonder Bell is banged up this week. What happened to Montgomery as a viable backup to Bell, or 2nd RB or WR? He only saw 5 snaps. Our 4th WR, Bellamy, saw 6 snaps and Berrios saw none, Wesco, 5, Cannon 1, TE Brown 2. Imo not varying our offensive looks gives the defense an advantage. on Defense, we will be hindered not only by the loss of Q and Mosely but by our CBs. Both Johnson and Roberts were weak yet they both played 100% of the snaps. Hairston sat on the bench and Maulet had 1 snap.
  3. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    During the combine, Willis tested as a Low Risk Edge Rusher. At 6’4”, 255 and 33.5 inch arms, he ran 4.53 40, with a 1.58 10yard Split. A 4.28 20 and a 6.85 3 cone. In my opinion, those are almost perfect measurements for a 34 OLB. Naturally testing as a Low Risk prospect doesn’t guarantee success but I think he might have been misused in Cinncy where they run a 43. It also seems that he is up to 270lbs. Probably because they wanted him as a DE. Maybe if he loses 10-15 lbs he can regain some of the twitch indicated by his test

    IMO, because the NFL has a strict salary cap, 22 starters, and a draft without a lottery. it can’t turn into the NBA. I can see the NFL owners adding a higher percentage into the cap but I don’t think they will get rid of it.
  5. Week 1: Buffalo Bills vs NY Jets

    Next to Allen connecting on some long bombs and his running ability, my biggest concern on their offense is Devin Singletary. With the slightly taller Gore as a mentor, this kid could prove to be a big pain.
  6. We also got a 4th and 7th in the Pace trade. Still not much and neither player worth mentioning. The 3rd rounder was a decent OL named Dan Neil but somehow he was drafted by Denver. I don’t know what we got for him. In the Jones trade, the 4th rounder was Leon Washington. I remember him having some good moments.
  7. Probably, but imho we have had some bad ones. Al Ward’s teams won 6 games in two years, Walton’s teams were12-19-1, Steinberg’s were 32-48, Idzik and Mac probably come next but even Ewbank’s last 4 years were a dismal 21-35. Guys like Bradway and Tanny probably benefited from having teams designed by coaches like Percells and Mangini that either left solid teams or had a strong influence in the draft. Jim Kensil was probably our most successful having drafted Klecko, Gastineau, Toon, McNeil, Mehl, Walker, Marvin Powell, Chris Ward, Sweeney, and Shuler. He did oversee our biggest mistake ever, taking O’Brien over Marino. Kenny was decent and taking him at 24 would have been a smart move if Marino wasn’t available. Parcells biggest mistake might have been close to our not drafting Marino. He traded down twice to take James Farrior. We were had the 1st pick (HOFer Orlando Pace) but traded down to 6 and added a 3rd. He than traded down from the 6th pick (HOF Walter Jones) to 8.Where we got Farrior and a 4th
  8. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    In 47 college punt returns Berrios average 10.4 yds, Dortch in 45 returns averaged 9.7. Berrios hasn’t done anything in two preseasons with NE, despite the fact that BB loves his little guys, like Welker, Edelman, Amendola and even Woodyard. Berrios might turn out to be a steal but I just feel that Dortch did enough in the preseason, as both a punt returner and receiver, to have won a job on the roster
  9. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    The move that I hate was cutting Greg Dortch.As far as I can tell, Braxton Berrios has done nothing to distinguish himself as a better receiver or punt returner. Thankfully, imo, we signed Dortch to our pS. My guess is that he’ll be on the 53 man roster in a few weeks https://www.ganggreennation.com/2019/9/2/20845265/jets-sign-wr-greg-dortch-to-practice-squad

    True, but i’ll be watching the careers of Q, Allen and Oliver for the next several years anyway. However the careers i’m most interested in following is Polite. I had Edge RusherChase Winovich with a first round grade because of his college production and high twitch scores at the combine. He was still available to us in the third but we went for Polite instead. From what I have read Polite is doing well in practice but it hasn’t translated to the game. So far Chase is doing it on the field with 3 sacks and 8 hurries. Of course playing for Belichick is probably an unfair advantage lol.
  11. 2019 Offseason Preview/FA Rumors

    Lol, there were a lot of us,, besides you me, @rickyt31including, @SDotNova, @MoLewis57, @xenajets, and a couple of others, that weren’t thrilled with the pick. No doubt Q could be a pro bowler but after signing Anderson, I thought he was off our board. Oliver as a 43DE pass rusher (if the plan was to transition to a 43 base) or Allen as a 34 Pass rusher would have been my choices. the problem I see with not getting an edge rusher is that most QBs are mobile, so pressure up the middle will not affect them as much as it will for the dying breed of stationary QB like Brady or Eli.
  12. Jets Sign Ryan Kalil

    Definitely an important upgrade. I have to believe his experience and savvy will greatly help Sam. Now if Egoda can play himself into a starting role and Osemele returns to form, our OL should be much better than the last couple of years. Of course with 3 of the starters over 30 we will need to start drafting their eventual replacements next year
  13. Training Camp

    Ok but Cousins doesn’t make the big second half plays😀
  14. Training Camp

    I get the same feeling. Probably a lot of wishful thinking but I can envision a Luck type season, over 4000 yds, 30+ TDS and 12-15 INTs, plus big plays in the second half of games. I just wish I had more (any) confidence in our OL. But with our WRs, Bell, Montgomery, Powell and whatever we get from TE Sam will have a lot of legitimate targets. i don’t know how our secondary will hold up against the pass but we could score a lot of points.
  15. 2020 Draft Prospects

    My guess Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma and Ohio State with Clemson playing Alabama for the championship they probably have the top two QBs in Lawerence and Tua. OSU’s QB will probably be the number two prospect (behind Lawerence) from the 2018 class, Justin Fields and Jalen Hurt could be a better fit at Oklahoma than he was at Bama.
