NFL (since 2016)
Free agency started last night and was pretty crazy some huge money being spent.

Osweiler getting £18m a year for the Texans, leaving the Broncos without a QB,

Giants have spent a fortune on good but not great players, Oliver Vernon has more guaranteed money than JJ Watt.

lots more deals but cant be bothered to list them all.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I think Bienemy will end up with much more attractive offers than the Jets. Unless they do end up with the first pick and he cant turn down working woth Lawrence.

In other new Ngakoue who was a very good pass rusher the last few seasons, has been traded to the Ravens less than 60 days after the Vikings traded for him. Vikings giving up on the season

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I should add that I'm not saying a college-only head coach can't make the leap across to being a successful NFL head coach. It can be done, but it is still quite rare.

For every Kliff Kingsbury at Arizona, there are two or three Chip Kelly-style failures at the likes of the Eagles.

Given the scale of the needs at the Jets, taking on a college coach would be a huge risk. Some might say the coach would have nothing to lose. But we're fed up losing!

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Sure - you're never going to be able to exactly replicate what the Chiefs, or any other successful franchise, has done. Especially since Reid is, and has been for a very long time, a thorough and very fine coach.

But if you're a losing franchise, on and off the field, like the Jets have been for 20 years under these owners (with the exception of two play-off years under Rex Ryan and Darelle Revis's defensive excellence), then you need to import a successful NFL culture into the franchise. Because it doesn't exist in New Jersey right now.

Everything at the Jets is rotten and failing: the ownership, the GM role (Douglas is new-ish and seems OK) and across the key coaching roles and into the playing staff.

The Jets need to rebuild a successful NFL culture and, to do that, they need some gnarled NFL experience of a winning culture - such as Bieniemy coming in from the Chiefs or (heaven forbid) McDaniels coming down from New England (not going to happen!).

Bringing in a college-only head coach, with no experience of professional football or coaching players older than 21, is not going to rebuild the Jets. Not with the scale and scope of the rebuidling job that needs doing. Most college coaches wouldn't know where to start.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
The thing with the Chiefs is that they had they had the bedrock of a decent team to start with. Alex Smith was a dull QB but they had a decent defence and O-Line, Kelce, an Ok running game and the likes of Tyreek Hill on special teams returning.
It was a brilliant plan as the season they drafted Mahomes Alex Smith was still doing doing the game his game management thing while Andy Reid was planning the air raid for the following season.
Can't see the Jets doing anything like that.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Having looked around at potential (long-term) replacements for Gase as HC of the Jets once they sack him, I'd be going all in for Eric Bieniemy (Kansas OC) if I were the Jets' GM and owner.

Long-time student of Andy Reid, knows what a successful NFL culture looks and feels like (unlike the successful college-only head coaches being mentioned), talks amazingly eloquently and clearly about the game (there's no way players would not know what is required of them - the guy is no-nonsense, yet bright) and knows his own mind.

You just get the impression that Bieniemy is very capable. No wonder the Kansas offence has thrived under him as OC and Reid as HC. His contract in Kansas is up at the end of this season and it is surely only a matter of time before he gets a shot at a HC role.

You can never quite tell who will be a successful HC until they are in the role. But I like the sound of this fella.

Supposed expert pundits are talking about Matt Campbell at Iowa State for the Jets, but I think the root-and-branch overhaul required at the franchise necessitates deeper NFL experience. Campbell has been extremely successful at college level - but it's a very different sport at 'youth' level.

We need a gnarly fucker who knows his way around the NFL, but who has fresh ideas coming out of a successful coaching school.

Campbell looks and sounds like many modern-day college coaches - all soundbites, yelling and paternalistic lectures. That works for naive-but-hungry 20 year-old college players. Not sure that gets the best out of millionnaire 28 year-old lineman who have been playing professionally for years and would eat naivety for breakfast.

I am pretty certain that he'll end up on the list of CTE casualties. That hit he took from Vontaze Burfict was the culmination of all the hits he had taken before and where his weird behaviour really kicked off.

Antonio Brown is toxic and has the mental age of about 8.

Joe C 11:12 Thu Oct 22
Re: NFL (since 2016)
He’s such a poisonous character. We’re, mostly, playing well and seem to have great team spirit - why ruin it with him?

But very little surprises me in this game these days

Re: NFL (since 2016)
What a ridiclous idea Joe.
Offence is getting along just fine (short of a receiving TE probably). A decent secondary would make far more sense.

Joe C 10:34 Thu Oct 22
Re: NFL (since 2016)
And now we’re being linked with Antonio Brown - that can’t fuck off far enough

Bell joins the Chiefs

Can only assume he’ll be cut again soon enough

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Got to stick with my regular RBs, they’re pretty solid for me. Will be interesting to see what Scott does tonight, think there’s points there.

Re: NFL (since 2016)

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I think Sanders is definitely out. He has an ‘O’ designation.
I’ll propose the trade again, not a problem either way.

crystal falace 10:48 Wed Oct 21
Re: NFL (since 2016)
Sorry i just accidentally rejected that trade. Will you be online later? Would ideally like to wait and see if sanders is actually inactive.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Ok, a one match loan would be interesting. How about Scott for Odell B, if you’re not using him this week?

crystal falace 8:40 Wed Oct 21
Re: NFL (since 2016)
I could be tempted by a 1 week loan option, but dont want scott moving forward.

OccupyGreenStreet 1:53 Wed Oct 21
Re: NFL (since 2016)
Trade time: happy to swap Boston Scott (Eagles) to anyone light on RBs because of byes this week. Looking to strengthen WR2/3. This is assuming Sanders is out tonight for Philly, in which case Scott will be the RB1.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Strange decision to commit to Tua now, given how well Fitz has played.

It's possibly something in the kid's contract or formed part of the discussions on him signing for Miami.

It doesn't really make sense otherwise.
