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.

He was just the latest in the long line of flash in the pan decent QBs who get overhyped by the media and then shat on by the same people as soon as things go against them.

Lamar Jackson will be rumbled soon as well IMO. Great athlete but only an average passer, and you can't trade like that for too long in the NFL. He'll be neutralised by gameplanning or badly injured.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Didn't Prescott reject what they offered him? (Which I think was a pretty good deal)

He'll get another contract anyway, be it in Dallas or somewhere else, but probably not as good now as what he's turned down. That's the risk of playing without a long term contract.

He's a good but not great QB who has benefitted from and elite line, running back and some very good receivers which paints quite a flattering picture.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Wentz is taking a battering these days, isn't he?

His level has fallen anyway, but he's now not getting the protection he needs. In combination, that's left the Eagles flailing.

Christ the eagles are truly shit offensively.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Fitzpatrick also seems to have an understanding of how to use Gesicki (basically a massive slot receiver) and get the ball to him where Tua does not. Early days I know and maybe a different playbook but still.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
zeb, I like gaskin and have used him when fit on my dfs teams but he still needs some help. I think the dolphins have improved a lot in a very short space of time and have a genuine elite receiver in parker. I'm just not sure how long tua will take to get comfortable, fitzpatrick definitely gets more out of the receivers


hermit, as I said, I think prescott should have got the big deal rather than elliott. I hope dak moves on and proves the cunt jones wrong, I just hope it isn't with your mob :.)

Fair enough. It doesn't help that as soon we do get a confirmed RB1 (Gaskyn, Ahmed) they get injured.

That's fair enough, he definitely has not stepped up in big pressure moments. He does have a good skillset though. That being said, he has also benefitted from a tremendous array of weapons at Dallas

Re: NFL (since 2016)
hock, you're having an impressive season but the lack of a running game will leave you short in the playoffs

Re: NFL (since 2016)
No respect for the Dolphins. ANYWHERE.

Last night on Red Zone, Hanson brought up a graphic towards the end of the night that had the current division leaders, wild card incumbents, and those still in the hunt. Miami, who at the time were ranked 6th (the middle wild card sport) were ignored, while Hansen talked about how Baltimore still had a lot to do (ranked 8th), and how awesome the Colts looked (1 place below us at 7th).

FWIW I think this may be at least 1 season too early for us to make any sort of dent in the playoffs, but why no respect for the record? We still have 3 very winnable games left which would put us at 10 - what is the world going to do then?

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I think we'll win a couple more games so Lawrence, Fields and Ehlinger will be long gone, but I do want a QB and Zach Wilson is the one i'd love, Mac Jones is another. I've watched quite a bit of Wilson and he's the exact type of character you'd want leading a team. I just hope Snyder keeps his nose out of the draft discussions :.)

Re: NFL (since 2016)
By far the most important appointments/acquisitions are going to be head coach and offensive co-ordinator, though.

If you gave Trevor Lawrence to Gase, our current coach would ruin him within weeks. There's no point drafting John Elway if you coach any inspiration out of him.

Thankfully Gase is gone the moment the season ends.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
If the Cowgirls were silly enough to give up two first round picks, two second-rounders and 4/5s just to land Lawrence (which is what some carried-away commentators are talking about), then I'd be seriously taking a look at Fields and Sam Ehrlinger if I were the Jets.

Lawrence does look very good, though. It's going to be a tough one to judge.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
TM - yeah, Harbaugh may not be the answer.

He did well with the 49ers, but during a period when the run/pass option offense was in vogue (especially under Kaepernick). Teams have figured the option approach out now - they just send a linebacker in directly behind the defensive end and bash-up both the RB and QB.

So I'm not sure about Harbaugh's effectiveness now.

Bienemy would be a strong appointment, in my view. He has a very solid and long background as a successful OC and has spent years learning from Andy Reid.

But, you're right, whoever comes in still has to work with the Johnsons and with an unproven GM. So it's going to be a hard slog attracting real quality to the Jets.

A LOT of reform is required first.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
hermit, prescott's a choker but he deserved being paid before that horrible cunt elliott. it's great watching him get worse by the week on his £90m contract :.)

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Hermit - I totally agree (hence, if I were the Jets, I'd at least consider keeping Darnold and, shock horror, actually trying to develop him). But Jerry Jones is just the sort of 'fool and his money' who might massively over-spend to get Lawrence from the Jets or Jags if he feels there's a trade to be had.

I like Prescott, even tho' I hate the Cowgirls. Would like to see hikm return from that terrible injury, but it will be a while.

Takashi Miike 12:30 Mon Nov 30
Re: NFL (since 2016)
whoever your mob approach, the candidate will still have to work with the clueless owners & gm, so it may not be just lawrence who turns them down. harbaugh may be leaving michigan soon, but he's been a disaster in that job considering how much they pay him. if you want to move on, you may need to gamble again & I think bieniemy would be a brave but good appointment. that he'd want to leave a kansas team that look like they could win multiple more superbowls is the big question

Hermit Road 12:27 Mon Nov 30
Re: NFL (since 2016)
I feel dirty saying this, but Dak Prescott is a good QB and Dallas not locking him down for a long time would be a terrible, terrible decision.

So let’s hope they tank, get Lawrence and have a decade of regret while Prescott does well elsewhere.

For all the excitement about draft picks, they rarely live up to it. Seems reckless to lose a proven QB on the off chance that another one might come good

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Mighty Jets edging one step closer to becoming just the third team in history to go 0-16 in a season.

The Idiot Gase's latest example of his brilliant 'quaterback whisperer' career was to watch Sam Darnold, former #3 overall pick and rated by many as the best young QB in the 2018 draft, fluff his lines all night against a very average Fish defence.

I rated Darnold as a solid pick at the time - and still think he has talent. But he's been ruined by Gase's lack of quality and inability to develop players - basically, the kid has been left to try to improve himself for three years. Which misses the point of very expensive coaching staff.

Personally, I think there's a case to be made for keeping Darnold and kick-starting his career under a proper coach. But there seems to be an increasing view in New York that the kid's days as Jets QB are coming to an end already.

Rumours abound that Trevor Lawrence will declare for the 2021 draft. As things stand, it's goingt be a straight 'fight' between the Jets and Jags for the #1 pick. But there have been a few rumours this week that Lawrence might reject the idea of coming to New York (word is he will wait to see which HC replaces Gase).

There is talk of the Cowgirls trading up from #3 or #4 (where they currently sit in the draft order) to get Lawrence. But the Girls would have to pay a hefty price for that - even to move up two or three spots.

Seems that the lunatic Jerry Jones is contemplating a big deal if the Girls finish within touching distance of a trade.

One tiny positive for the Jets this week: Denzel Mims - a very fine, big and aggrssive receiver who we picked up in the second round this year - is healthy for the first time and looks a good prospect. Let's just hope TIG can't destroy his career in record time before he departs.
