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 see Gase is indeed already getting it in the neck from New York's media and fan base.

It's an interesting one. He's only three games into his stint at the Jets, and they have been plagued with injuries, but there is still an over-riding feeling that the head coach is way out of his depth and responsible for awful play-calling.

It was visible against the excellent Patsies. Commentators on the game were openly second-guessing Gase's play-calls from the sidelines: he had nothing to offer. Gase is a co-ordinator, at best. After the Patriots game, he admitted that some of his offensive players didn't know what was going on during certain plays. That's entirely on him.

His tenure is already beginning to feel like that of Glen Roeder's time at West Ham: got the job, to everybody's surprise, when there were bigger and better candidates out there, not really qualified for the role, given some breathing space because there is talent on the roster and - like Roeder - already beginning to massively underperform despite that talent on the roster.

I hope I'm wrong, as I want any Jets side to do well. But can't help but feel Gase will be a short-lived phenomenon in New York. Thankfully, we have a potential replacement head coach on the coaching staff already, in Gregg Williams.

You never know with this Jets ownership - they are not exactly quick to rid themselves of poor coaches. But might be worth some smart money on a short stint for Gase. Already alienated fans and media after three games - its already a long way back for him in Gotham.

His only potential saving grace is a relatively quick return from Darnold, who has the outright talent to make them competitive: but that would feel like papering over the cracks. They need a proper head coach.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
If they're limiting Brees then it may allow Brady to catch/overtake him as the one thing thats been a bit stagnant this season has been the Ptriots' running game, leaving Brady to chuck it all over the place still.

The thing that annoys me with all these "all time" records is that they dont include the post season, when the games matter most and against the toughest competition but they're not included in "all time" stats

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I worry about Kamara but it seems he has a Gumby body at least for now.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
if Kamara keeps playign the way he did at the weekend then Brees could play til he's 50, just hand the ball off and watch him break through 6 tacklers

There was a conscious effort to limit him but I agree, some decision were bad.

But then he does what he did against Texans, without needing much arm strength at all and I think he can go a while.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Just think his arm might be going, maybe the injury layoff might do him some good and he wont fatigue like he did last season, but for the last 6 games of last season including the playoffs he was not the same player as he was at the start and hasnt looked at his best this season until he got hurt.

With the way Brady has kept going people seem to think its normal for Brees, Rivers etc to keep going until 40 but it isnt, Brady is a freak who has dedicated almost everything to football including a crazy diet and workout regiment, Look at the way Peyton fell off a cliff, that used to be the norm for QBs

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I have been more worried about Brees than some on the Saints forum I frequent but he should be around for a while longer.

Can't see the injury being something that will be aggravated by age.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Just read that the Jets defense has scored more points than their offense this season?

That's extraordinary.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
It's crazy to think the Dolphins turned their noses up to Brees twice.

If Mahomes carries on the way he's started he beats both their records.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Think the passing records could come down to who plays longer out of Brady and Brees, both should overtake manning for touchdowns this season (if Brees comes back soonish) and i think brady is about 1 year's worth of passing yards behind Brees for the record.

Brees looks close to being done than Brady at this point even without the injury he seems to have lost a fair amount of arm strength from about midway through last season.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Fuck the Pat's, I'm very much looking forward to when they have their time in the wilderness. Like the Spurs of the NFL ;o)

Good luck replacing someone who's thrown over 71,000 yards as well.

71k - ha ha, fucking ridiculous and Brees has even more and has a record I just can't see ever being beaten. Couple of legends.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Could be a decent game this week against the Bills, they have a couple of decent receivers in Brown & beasley who may not be a great matchup for Gilmore as they're smaller faster guys.

Big test will be if they can contain Josh Allen in the pocket and force him to beat them with his arm which is erratic at best.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I appreciate they've had a very easy schedule so far but the early season stats for the patriots looks worrying for the rest......

Total Offense - 5th
Pass Offense - 2nd
Rush Offense - 21st
Total Defence - 1st
Pass Defence - 1at
Rush Defence - 1st

Re: NFL (since 2016)
The Saints surprised me.

Big plays on special teams and defence and Kamara on offence.

Maybe the toughest three games they will play all season, certainly the toughest run and still lead the division.

Hold the fort and stay in the hunt and all the other clichés for next 5 weeks and it's a gravy.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
A few of my friends were in Seattle for last nights game, with one of them being a Saints fan, so a cracking night for him.

You'll know a couple of them extremely well Mr Burns, as virtual neighbours of yours for many a year.

David O and Graeme L from Carisbrooke Close!

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Niners won ugly. The Defense played lights out and saved the day.

Niners Offense was an absolute joke, two picks due to receivers bobbling the ball, two fumbles from Mostert a fumbled snap and a snap that hit the player in motion.
The offense moved the ball well and gained plenty of yards, would have scored 40 plus points but for the errors.

Bye week next week, get some rest and work on cleaning up the mistakes. Niners 3-0 and on a roll!

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I was second-guessing Gase's play calls today - so imagine how easy Belichick found it.

Sure, he had his third string QB in the game - his first start in the NFL - but that's precisely when you do something different, knowing that your opponents can't have seen any game film of your QB.

Gase went inside himself and kept repeat-calling the same failed plays. It was a childish effort against a tactical master. Deservedly got thumped (the 14 points flattered us).

southbankbornnbred 1:35 Mon Sep 23
Re: NFL (since 2016)
Gase already openly admitting that his play-calling has been poor, btw, so that's not just my assessment.

This chancer looks way out of his depth at the moment. I wouldn't mind, but at the Jets he's swimming in a shallow enough pool as it is.

When does Gregg Williams take over?!
