  1. 2019/2020 Offseason

    Nice, wonder if this explains why he somewhat randomly became a healthy scratch towards the end of the year.
  2. I'll never fault a player for prioritizing finances and maximizing their potential value. On the field you need team first guys, but off the field, when it comes to personal finances? Jamal would be doing himself and his family a huge disservice by not being a "money driven guy". In a perfect world you get a guy who isn't compelled to "chase the bag" but that's their decision and I certainly won't hold it against them, so long as that individual is all ball on the field, which Jamal obviously is (He's literally said a football field would be the perfect place to die) Jamals issue, and where I agree with you, is that he doesn't seem to have any idea what he's talking about lol. His heads in the right place but obviously he lacks a clear understanding of the business side of the game works. He's young, he'll learn.

    Humphries new deal most likely takes the Cardinals out of the OT market in round one, BIG win for us. Offensive lineman are going to get PAID this offseason and Humphries contract is indicative of that. I know he's an above average player but 15M per?

    Huh?

    Nice little fluff piece to spark some optimism. Seemed to me that Edoga was tossed around like a rag doll far too frequently, but his foot work and lateral movement really jumped off the screen. Seeing as this was a Gase pick, I expect him to get every shot at the staring role this offseason. The potential appears to be there, maybe we get lucky for once.
  6. The Random Thread (TAJT!)

    Craziest part about the whole thing IMO is that with each murder investigation law enforcement struggled to ever find a motive that would tie Hernandez to the crime. Goes to show just how out of touch with reality the dude was to act in such senseless rage which was probably in part because of the CTE he sustained. A buddy of mine played at Florida and before the documentary aired was telling me about how their lawyer helped Hernandez get away with murder while at UF. Just a tragic story of what could've been.

    As much as I LOVE Adams, which I believe is well documented, you're 100% right. I've always been a huge advocate of players approaching negotiations with a business first mindset - it's their right and the financially responsible thing to do, but as you've stated, he has an obligation to fulfill before those negotiations need to take place. If JD decides to extend him, so be it, but he needs to understand that would be a gift.
  8. Everything Free Agency (Rumors, notes and news)

    Still can't really understand what happened here, even when he was with the bills I thought he was destined to be elite with the right QB. Arguably my favorite receiver prospect EVER.
  9. 2019/2020 Offseason

    100% - People argue he's too into himself, sure, most millennial superstars are, more than anything though he's obsessed with being the best at his craft and I don't see that desire going away until he puts on a gold jacket. The premium position argument is none-sense when you're a transcending/generational talent, his impact (Both on and off the field) is up there with just about any defensive player in the league and he'll be paid accordingly.

    Oh I agree, which is why I would pass on a receiver in the 1st. My point being to question the idea and success of a WR by committee approach. The 49rs make it work but Kittle is essentially a #1 receiver. The Ravens, sure, but Lamar just ran for 1,200 yards so it’s not like they’re reliant on a top flight receiving option. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks are really the only team making it work. Just a thought ..
  11. 2019/2020 Offseason

    How many good/great quarterbacks are actually using a committee approach at WR? Russell Wilson? Lamar? Playing devils advocate here, but most seem to have a #1 guy. Rodgers // Adams Brees // Thomas Mahomes // Hill,Kelce* Watson // Hopkins Goff // Kupp Dak // Amari Ryan // Julio Wentz // Ertz* Jimmy G // Kittle* Cousins // Digs,Thielen I’d still prefer to prioritize the OL at all costs including our first pick - Just an observation.
  12. *2020 Offseason Mock*

    I'd sign on for this but I don't think it's realistic. Robby has already stated he will test free agency and is expected to get more than $10M per. I don't see us signing two splash free agents, hopefully one (Conklin would be highest on my list). Really like the low risk/high reward signings of Burns and Beasley, Darby too but I expect there to be a bigger market for him. That's ultimately how I'd like to see us approach defense in FA, get a bunch of talented guys for cheap and ask GW to coach them up. As for the draft, hard to say because it's a crapshoot at this point but I doubt Becton last till 21.
  13. 2019/2020 Offseason

    I hadn't thought of that, will be interesting to see if it effects how teams spend
  14. First Mock Off-Season

    Really like the direction you went (Prioritizing OL and CB on D) and think the contractual portion is fairly realistic. While I'd love to grab both Conklin/Scherff, that's probably a pipe dream, I also think a lot of people on here will be very disappointed with what we get for Bell (My guess is closer to a 5th). Assuming the top 3 OT are gone, personally I'd be cool with Lamb but don't see JD going in that direction.
  15. 2020 Draft Prospects

    That would make sense, appreciate the insight/perspective you bring to the board. It's wild how captivating this game can be for some people (Myself included). When my buddies first realized I was posting on a Jets fanforum page they got a good laugh out of it, but it's the only place I've been able to find people as crazy about the Jets and football in general. Almost therapeutic in the sense that it provides the opportunity for me to shift my focus away from reality and shoot the **** with likeminded individuals, when I have the time.
