Jets vs Chiefs Sunday 4:30est
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:09 AM) good
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:09 AM) Best day of the week is the day after a Jets Win!
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:12 AM) Rob you think the offense started off ugly? we scored on our first 4 drives, and controlled the ball 80% of the time the first half. We didn't even punt until the 2nd half
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:21 AM) I meant the hits on Fitz at on the first Drive or two with the fumbles and almost fumbles....The Tom Brady rule where balls that used to be fumbles are incomplete. We recovered the ball on all but one but it was ruled incomplete
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:26 AM) The offensive line stepped off after Hughes got hurt for however long he was out. I don't blame J. Marsh for that fumble because that was just a hell of a play. Imo Fitz had a career best game even with only 1 td passing. Never seen him so accurate. So yeah when I meant ugly I meant dline penetration and the 1st two drives ending up in fieldgoals
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:30 AM) But 31 points given up passing by the defense passing was bad. It wasn't just 2 long bombs and that defensive touchdown leading to 21 points. 3q1 against a bad team was terrible for the defense. Without the offense putting up 37 the Jets,would have lost so yeah I consider it an ugly start on both ends
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:32 AM) I'm glad like everyone else that the Jets won. Especially with getting with by the Bills multiple times it was nice revenge.
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:34 AM) Just saying that the Bills look like a bad team this year and the Jets have to face a lot of teams that are probably playoff bound again so yes there is a lot of concern
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 11:39 AM) fitz look good and lets not forget the 50+ yarder to decker that was called back on a BS holding penalty. plus if you rewatch it, the jets d-line was getting held like crazy and never got calls. I seen McLendon, williams, and wilk all complaining about it
azjetfan Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:32 PM) I think the game plan for the D was to keep Taylor in the pocker
azjetfan Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:33 PM) They didn't want him running around when they only rushed 3-4 guts
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:37 PM) bills fired their OC today after the loss yesterday lol
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:38 PM) yeah we didn't really rush, we just tried to keep contain on the outside and collapse the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:38 PM) on the salas TD, one of our LBers went for the sack and broke contain and pryor got away and made the play
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:39 PM) when we did rush which was rare, we had a spy
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 11:11 PM) As far as the Bills firing the oc I'm not sure I agree with it with Watkins having major foot problem with a steel rod in his surgically repaired foot but I dont follow the Bills so cant really say. I do think they need to get rid of Rob Ryan though. He had a decent year with the Browns then was terrible with the Cowboys and Saints. He isn't half the DC that Rex is. I still think Rex can be a good head coach withe the right coaches and roster but Rob Ryan isn't the answer. But if Rex wants to ruin his chance of staying a head coach by keeping his brother on the coaching staff like he ruined his head coaching job keeping Sanchez as a starter then that's his stupidity
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 September 2016 - 12:20 AM) The A Football Life of Curtis Martin is a MUST WATCH!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 September 2016 - 02:03 PM) They got rid of their OC after their defense was ripped apart
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:03 PM) Well hell that makes even less sense. The defense gets ripped apart so let's get rid of the oc instead of the dc.they didn't have much of a run game but a lot of passes yards. If they wanted to blame anyone for nearly 40 points against them it was their defense. But guess Rex used the ocean as the scale goat instead of his brother
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:04 PM) Oc not ocean. Damn Auto correct on phone
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:04 PM) And scape goatee
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:05 PM) Lol still can't get it right
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:13 PM) Not sure about anyone else but I'm extremely interested in the 49r/ Panther game at 1pm. Just want to see if the 49rs are actually good this year or if the Rams have become one of the worst teams in the league this year
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:16 PM) If the Rams have regressed that much then all the Todd Gurley owners in fantasy will likely have low points from him all year. Might even be worth trying to trade him early if they look just as bad this week before his stock drops
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:26 PM) I drafted him last year and also had David Johnson, Chris Johnson, Roetlesburger, Romo, Palmer, Barnage,, .....my whole team was stacked with starters. Entire team wasc stacked with starters. Even bench. Made tge Superbowl but did have a rough start at behinning of season when Romo and Roethlisberger wentvdown at the start of season also lost amazing starting rb and wr all within the 1st 4 games but worked the waivers really well..shut out until garbage time by a team that was terrible last year
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:28 PM) Last part meant Rams were shut out entire game even in garbage time against 49r backups
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:29 PM) Sorry about typos. Hard to type on small phone screen
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:00 PM) This is why I'm glad Rex is gone. Fire the OC after the D gives up 500 yards??
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:01 PM) UPDATE THE UPDATE!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:25 PM) Yep Rex isn't a bad coach but he needs to have all player and coach decisions as far as firing and hiring taken out of his hands. His problem is he doesn't know to separate the job from loyalty to players and is unable to let underperforming players go
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:27 PM) He was great as a DC because he wasn't in charge of roster and firing decisions. He will never make it as a good head coach until he can get rid of loyalty and run a team like any boss runs a business.
azjetfan Icon : (17 September 2016 - 07:16 PM) I loved Rex as a person. But he is severely handicapped in his skill set as a HC. He has not adapted and will not adapt. That's why he isn't here and will be fired from Buffalo.
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:05 AM) It's all guessing and I will like likely stick with my two starters that are injured and playing but D.Thomas looks like he is still in a lot of pain and Stewart is still in the locker room getting ankle treatment so both could be on a snap count
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:06 AM) I have good wr's on bench and good rb's on bench but they have bad matchups. Do t trust Diggs against Greenbay or Doug Martin against Arizona both on bench
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:08 AM) If I made changes I have Crabtree for Oakland Aagainst Atlanta and Abdullah for Detroit against 49rs as my two options I would choose if I made any changes
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:10 AM) Actually have it backwards with my running back teams
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:12 AM) Detroit vs Titans who I believe has a legit defense. Panthers have a better team but the ankle for Stewart and both the Titans and 49rs are ranked #1 against the run. Not a believer in the 49rs defensesthough
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:13 AM) Believe the Rams oline just sucks
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:15 AM) Abdullah splits carries but he did get 17 last week and also catches a lot of passes and has a better qb so could exploit the Titans still
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:16 AM) Will most likely do my own thing anyway just looking for input from those that actually study in fantasy if anyone feels like offering their opinions. If not it's cool too. Thanks
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:18 AM) If not for the injuries to the two players I'd keep them in for sure but all it takes for Thomas is a hit to the hip and a tackle by the ankle for Stewart if they aren't on a snap count already or if pain doesn't get to them.
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 12:45 PM) Well looks like leaving in Stewart was,a,bad move in locker room
MikeGangGree... Icon : (18 September 2016 - 04:54 PM) Good news! Dolphins suck
santana Icon : (19 September 2016 - 08:08 AM) Thanks professor
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:55 PM) updated roster. FB howsare released, TE bowman added to roster

SO we've had all this talk about drafting Tight ends, offensive and defensive lineman, db's, and tweeners. Now the question becomes who do the jets draft in the first round in April. What do you guys think because I have no idea.

Thanks for the Memories

I want them to draft Jarvis Moss. He would be a good pick for us, 6-6 height and runs fast.

iagree.gif Moss is the shit. If not Moss then perhaps Michael Bush dependant on his combine or Carriker if he falls or Okoye.

it is very obvious what our PRIMARY need is for this team. however, who we draft depends on what we do in FA. our primary need is obviously dline. whoever does not think this is not educated enough to have a valid opinion. if we improve our dline, whether it be through FA or the draft, it will improve our run defense, our pass rush, and our pass coverage. if we build improve our dline, not only will vilma have less blockers on him, our pass rushers have more room to get to the QB because our DEs and NT will be taking up more blockers. there have been 2 main theories so far:

1. pick up an NT through FA and move robertson to DE. the problem with this theory is 2 fold.
a. can robertson play DE in the 3-4?? usually DEs are 6'4 and up because they have to match up against much taller OTs and robertson might not be tall enough and his arms might be too short to create separation from these guys.
b. who do we pick up in FA? everyone is saying terdell sands bc he is 6'7 335 lbs which is huge but is he fit to play NT? does he even have the leverage to play that position? what makes you think he can do it since he does not even start as a DT on the raiders? how do we know whether or not we will even be able to get him with other teams courting him? no way we should get in a bidding war with another team looking to improve their dline for an unproven guy like sands.

2. draft a DE and keep robertson at NT. dewayne has already spent a year learning this position and has vastly improved. now it depends on whether the front office thinks he is good enough to keep learning this position or whether it was just a 1 year hold over task before replacing him. i think we should just keep him at NT since he was doing quite well and just draft a DE to replace kimo. this would keep him inside where the shorter and stockier players are present.

now obviously, if branch, carriker, and anderson are all gone (these are the best 3-4 DEs) then we will probably go with the best OLB and fill our DE need with atkins or francis later in the draft. it all depends on what the front office thinks we need, as well as what we do in FA, and who is still on the board by the time we pick. i personally would like to see a carriker, bush, OLB (pray that woodley/spencer falls), but i wouldn't be upset with a moss, bush, atkins draft either.

Er...since Lynch probably won't fall to 25, I suppose Jarvis Moss. Question..would anyone here be against trading down if we feel we can still get the guy we want and pick up another pick or 2 along the way

i don't think we really need to trade down because we already have those 2 2nd rounders. we are in a difficult spot because though the draft is deep, we need immediate starters at a few positions. these positions are mainly DE, OLB, and RB. now if we trade down, we are losing the chance to lock up these positions. what good is it to trade down out of the first round and now have 3 2nd rounder, and an extra 4th?? those picks probably won't give us immediate starters moreso than just staying where we are right now. if we had a team that didn't have many IMMEDIATE needs and just wanted to draft depth that could come along in a couple of years, then i think that would be a great idea, but considering our situation of needing immediate help, we probably shouldn't.

I think it's just way too early to say. First, it depends what they do in FA. We all seem to agree that d line is the biggest need, but if they find a big NT in free agency, d line probably won't be their main focus. Second, so much can happen between now and the draft. A guy that we're looking at could light up the combines and end up going top 10. That's what Dewayne did. He was projected as a late rounder before the combines and he ended up going fourth overall. I think we'll have a much better idea after the combines.

Lynch and Branch aren't going to happen, I don't think we'll trade up and get them. I see woodley and moss and possibilities in the first round.

If you want Woodley save your first rounder and get him in the second...

trade drob for a 1st or 2nd

================================================================

26th -

Adam Carriker
DE | (6'6", 290, 4.85) | NEBRASKA

Scouts Grade: 90
View by: Round | Player | NCAA School | Position | NFL Team | Flag | All Ranked Players | NFL Draft History
You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.


Strengths: Possesses outstanding size and good quickness for his size. Is tall, well-built and powerful. Shows adequate initial quickness and good agility for such a bigger DE prospect. He plays with adequate leverage and shows the base to take on blocks versus the run. He takes solid angles in pursuit and has become a reliable wrap-up tackler in space. Also is a powerful hitter. Shows good instincts as a pass rusher. Displays a wide array of power moves and is relentless in pursuit. Not a speed-rusher type off the edge, but he is productive because of his quickness, power, versatility and motor.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal top-end speed. Does not show the speed or closing burst to consistently turn the corner as an edge rusher in the NFL. Is a power-end type that will only fit well in certain schemes. He must continue to improve his hand-usage in order to consistently disengage quicker.

Overall: Carriker was redshirter in 2002. He played in nine games in 2003, missed three games with an ankle injury, and finished the year with three total tackles, one tackle for loss, and one sack. In 2004, he appeared in 10 games (eight starts), missed more time with an ankle injury, and recorded 36 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, and three sacks for the season. Carriker then started all 12 games in 2005 at "base" defensive end, made 43 total tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, and forced one fumble earning First Team All-Big 12 recognition from the Associated Press.
With an impressive combination of size and agility, Carriker has always been supremely talented but finally showed signs of reaching his full potential as a junior. If he can take his game to the next level as a senior, Carriker could come off the 2007 draft board as early as the second round.

=======================================================================

35th -

Michael Bush
RB | (6'1", 251, 4.6) | LOUISVILLE

Scouts Grade: 89

Flags: (I: INJURY) Coming off injury that may affect play
View by: Round | Player | NCAA School | Position | NFL Team | Flag | All Ranked Players | NFL Draft History
You are signed into Insider and have access to the exclusive draft content below.


Strengths: A big, powerful and fast prospect with premier running back potential in the NFL. He possesses great straight-line speed and agility for his size. He shows good initial burst but also displays patience as a runner. His vision is excellent and he does a very good job of changing direction in the backfield in order to hit the developing backside hole. Great feet for his size. When he runs with adequate pad-level he can run through defenders. He also has enough speed to consistently turn the corner as an outside runner. He's a versatile athlete that was recruited to play quarterback out of high school. He possesses good athleticism and hand-eye coordination. He looks smooth when catching the ball out of the backfield. Shows reliable hands and flashes the ability to pluck the ball on the run, as well as away from his body. He has experience working out of the slot and split out wide. Is an outstanding route-runner for a running back, especially for his size. He has ideal size and strength to handle blocking responsibility at the next level. Also shows willingness in blitz pickup.

Weaknesses: Durability is now a pressing concern following season-ending broken leg injury as a senior. He also missed two games (Rutgers, Syracuse) due to injury in 2005. He possesses great speed for his size, but he's not going to run away from NFL defenders as frequently as he does at the collegiate level. He lacks ideal elusiveness and will struggle to make defenders miss as frequently in space at the next level. Runs too high at times. Needs to show more consistent pad-level and also needs to add a better stiff-arm move to his repertoire. Conditioning and stamina can improve. Can use some technique work as a blocker. Has the tools to be outstanding in this facet but needs to refine angles and show more consistent leverage at the point of attack.

Overall: Bush arrived at Louisville in 2003, played in all 13 games that season, four of which he started. He carried 81 times for 503 yards (6.2 average), scored six touchdowns, and caught 17 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown. As a true sophomore in 2004, Bush played in all 12 games (three starts) and rushed for 743 yards on 132 carries (5.6 yards per carry) with seven touchdowns, while adding 11 receptions for 155 yards. Bush also threw a 48-yard touchdown pass versus TCU. In 2005, Bush played in 10 contests, started eight, and missed two games with a foot injury. He rushed 205 times for 1,143 yards (led the Big East), averaging 5.6 yards per carry and set a Louisville school record for rushing touchdowns with 23. He also made 21 receptions for 253 yards and one touchdown. Bush suffered a season-ending broken tibia in Week 1 (vs. Kentucky) of the 2006 season.
Bush has the option to medical redshirt in 2006 and return to Louisville next fall, but he is expected to forgo that option for the 2007 NFL draft. Prior to the injury he was considered the premier running back prospect in the 2007 class. When healthy, Bush's versatility and speed for such a big back are what separate him from most others at his position. However, his injury typically requires a six-to-eight month recovery period, which means he'll be cutting it close in terms of rehabbing for in time to workout for NFL scouts. There also are concerns regarding Bush's eating habits, which could lead to serious weight and conditioning problems during the recovery process.

If Bush can avoid that pitfall and expedite his rehab, there's still a chance that a team gambles on him late in the first round. At this point, however, it's a safer bet that Bush comes off the board in the second round.

58th - this guy might be around for our 3rd but just to make sure we get him.

Strengths: A massive DT/NT prospect with impressive height and bulk. Displays good initial quickness for his size. Is a wide-bodied defender that is capable of tying up blockers in a two-gap scheme. He displays good overall strength and the ability to anchor at the line of scrimmage. Can occasionally be effective as a pass rusher because of quickness and power. He will show the ability to occasionally drive the lineman back into the pocket with powerful bull rush move. He plays with a solid motor on the field, so long as he gets proper rest.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal experience and is an unpolished prospect. Must learn to use his hands more effectively and disengage from blocks quicker. Will wear down quickly and needs to be in a heavy rotation to be effective. Weight can become an issue and will always need to be monitored. He does not possess good athleticism and he won't make a lot of plays in space. Gets good penetration for a player his size, but does not show closing burst to the quarterback. Also lacks many moves as a pass rusher and does not show a lot of creativity in that regard.

Overall: Leonard was redshirted in 2002 before appearing in nine games during the 2003 season, when he recorded five total tackles, one tackle for loss, and one sack. In 2004, he saw action in nine games (three starts), missed three games with an ankle injury, and finished the year with 11 total tackles. Leonard played in 12 games in 2005, finishing with 26 total tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and one fumble recovery for the season.
Leonard is a second-day prospect in the 2007 draft class because of his size and potential, but not because of his collegiate resume. The massive two-gap DT/NT prospect must improve his technique and overall consistency in order to warrant consideration in the first four rounds.

Strengths: Possesses excellent size. Is a thickly built mauling type of interior, offensive lineman. Engulfs undersized defenders at the point of attack and can wear defenders down over the course of the game. Does a good job of locking onto the defender's frame, plays with a wide base and can sustain blocks. Takes good angles to blocks, plays under control in space and can get into position at the second level. Gets adequate knee bend in pass set and rarely gives ground to bull rushers. Shows good awareness, keeps his head up and does an adequate job of picking up blitzes as well as line stunts. He has shown some versatility playing guard and center during his collegiate career.

Weaknesses: Doesn't have an explosive first step, doesn't show great footwork and is going to have problems preventing penetration working against one-gap defenders. Foot-speed is lacking, has problems redirecting inside after starting outside and is vulnerable to double moves. Doesn't deliver a violent initial punch, doesn't roll his hips into blocks and isn't going to knock defenders back. Lacks ideal range, doesn't cover downfield well and may need to shed some weight in order to gain some quickness. Ideal playing weight is under 320 pounds, but he has ballooned to 340 pounds at points during his collegiate career.

Overall: Beekman was redshirted in 2002. He saw action in all 13 games in 2003, was plugged into the starting lineup twice, and played on special teams registering two tackles. In 2004, Beekman took over as the starting right guard for the entire season (12 games). He once again started all 12 games at right guard in 2005. Beekman started all 13 games as a senior in 2006; 10 at guard and three at center.
Beekman is a far better run blocker than he is a pass blocker but he has the size and enough athletic ability to develop into an every-down starting offensive guard in the NFL. He also showed some versatility playing center as a senior. Beekman projects as one of the top-five offensive guard prospects in this year's class and should come off the board no later than the third round.
