azjetfan Icon : (05 January 2017 - 09:54 PM) Sean Payton will get another HC gig. Obrien would be good.
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:18 PM) Howard from Alabama seems legit. #88 TE
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:20 PM) Williams the WR from Clemson looks like they are out to get him. He has taken some huge hits
vjdbbq Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:12 AM) We'll take Williams in the first round .
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 10:48 AM) I'd love Howard in the 2nd round if he's still there. I like Williams a lot as well, but I just don't see WR being big enough of a need, and there should be better talent on the board at 6
Jetsfan115 Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:21 PM) Raiders OC Musgrave not expected to return to OAK. what do you think about getting him? he did wonders with the oakland offense this year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:39 PM) Definitely an appealing choice given with his history of progressing Carr. We need someone with a track record of grooming young QBs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (12 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) I want Watson now! after what he did Monday night I'm sold on him at QB. He moved the ball all night on Alabama and after hurts scored that TD he just told his team "Lets end this"
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:31 PM) An Ohio prosecutor says he wants to know what punishment Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones faces from the NFL before deciding how to proceed over Jones' latest arrest, Dan Sewell of the Associated Press reports..

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WKRC-TV he's asking "what is the normal" for a player with multiple offenses and who's been suspended before.

An NFL spokesman said on Thursday that Jones' case is "under review" and declined to comment further.

Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. Authorities say he was so combative he had to be placed in a restraint chair.

Jones says he anticipates the charges will be dismissed.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:32 PM) we wont get watson. he's going 1st overall to the browns
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:06 PM) Is Watson a product of Clemson's staff and supporting cast? Taj Boyd also put up some decent numbers if I remember correctly but he couldn't even make a scout team in the NFL.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) From what I have read (although limited) he is not the highest ranked QB in the draft.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) "No quarterback in this draft -- not Mitch Trubisky, not Watson, not DeShone Kizer -- is considered a sure thing. The folks at Scouts Inc. rank Trubisky, Watson and Kizer as the 21st, 38th and 46th prospects on their big board, respectively." ESPN
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:12 PM) If we can get a decent return for Richardson we may be able to make a move into the mid teens to early 20s if the Brass really likes Watson.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:13 PM) Personally I don't think the jets have a clue on who they will take. We still have to hit FA and manage our roster
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 11:46 PM) Jets to interview Broncos assistant Studesville for OC
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:28 PM) Why? seems like a weird choice
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:29 PM) Leonard Williams replacing Khalil Mack in Pro Bowl
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm not buying Watson, even after that championship game. Dude threw too many picks in his day
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm really curious to see what we get for Richardson, but I have a bad feeling his value is at an all time low between his crap season and bad attitude
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 12:16 AM) I agree. He is a first round talent but a fourth round headache. We will be lucky to get a 2nd
Chadforpresi... Icon : (14 January 2017 - 08:41 AM) Yeah precisely. 2nd rounder would be a huge stretch. 3rd or 4th is more likely
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:51 PM) Seems like a slightly steep price but overall cool with it, he's turned into a good player and is still young. Just needs to stay healthy.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market

NFL players speak out on the NFL's awful, new dangerous hit rule
By Chris Chase

Posted ImageNFL players are speaking out against the new suspensions and fines for players making hard hits. A number of stars, both on offense and defense, have criticized the league in recent days, proving that not everyone is in favor of arbitrary rulings on hard hits, intent and effective tackling.

Roger Goodell and the NFL have good intentions with the new suspension and fine rules, but this slapdash tweak to the rulebook has already left players and fans confused. James Harrison(notes) getting fined $75,000 is understandable. Everyone except Harrison acknowledges that his hits were dirty. But what about Dunta Robinson(notes) getting fined $50,000 for a perfectly legal hit on DeSean Jackson(notes)? That was a great play with an unfortunate result. Yet his fine suggests the NFL is only serious about sanctioning players who cause injury, not ones who do so with vicious, reckless intent. If Jackson had popped up right after that hit, would Robinson still owe 50K today? I doubt it.

[Photos: DeSean Jackson reels from Robinson's powerful hit]

Decisions to fine and suspend can't be made because of a hit's end result. Goodell will insist that they're not doing that, but the Robinson fine proves otherwise. This is a slippery slope for the league to pursue.

[Related: James Harrison's 'I try to hurt people' admission]

The NFL didn't think this through. Goodell and the suits in the front office swiftly overreacted to a serious issue without thinking of the implications. It's as if they saw concussed players, said "this has to stop," and threatened every player who ever wanted to make a tackle. Players aren't pleased:

1. Brian Urlacher

"It's freaking football. There are going to be big hits. I don't understand how they can do this after one weekend of hitting. And I can't understand how they can suspend us for it. I think it's a bunch of bull.

"You know what we should do? We should just put flags on everybody. Let's make it the NFFL - the National Flag Football League. It's unbelievable."

2. Steve Breaston

"Say it's third-and-15 and you go across the middle. As a defender, you try to dislodge that ball so he doesn't make the catch. Now, it's what, you let them catch it? You make the tackle, but they pick up the first down? I don't know."

3. James Harrison

"To really be honest, I don't think it's going to change the way I play the game. There's a lot of hoopla going around that I'm a dirty player. I'm not trying to injure anyone. It's a physical game, it's a violent game. You're going to get hurt."

4. Adrian Wilson

"It's really hard because you only have that split-second to determine what to do. It's crazy. I try my best to use clear judgment and make clear decisions, but a lot of those collisions are unavoidable. You're either going to let them catch it and take a step to see what's going on, or there's going to be a collision."

5. Antrel Rolle

"It's fine for the offensive players but I'm on the defensive side of the ball. So are you telling me that now I have to slow down? I think we're already being cautious of what we're doing and how we're attacking the ball or how we're trying to make a tackle. I think that's absolutely ridiculous because under any circumstances you can't just absolutely have control over your body when you're pursuing a tackle.

"This is the game of football. This is a game of speed. This is a game of power. This is a game of physical guys going to battle. Once you start saying to guys 'You'll get suspended for a game,' that's when you're going to get a very, very tentative football game."

6. Andre Johnson

"A lot of times, guys are just out there playing and they'll just go and get you. I don't really think they're thinking about the helmet-to-helmet contact. You'll probably see a lot of players more hesitant before they make their hits."

7. Clinton Portis

"As far as dude running the ball, or running with the ball, and somebody hit you helmet to helmet, I think you got an opportunity to go down. You got an opportunity to slide."

8. Phillip Daniels

"Have we become a cupcake league? We already have better helmets and gear. Wonder how the old school players feel about this. Not in the back of minds when talking about 18 game season so let's play football please....Even guys using shoulders to hit are getting flagged for helmet-to-helmet. Defense is getting sloppy because guys are avoiding fines and will get worse if suspending comes into play....

"There has been a warning sticker on the back of every helmet since pee wee league. When u put that helmet on you know you will hit or be hit. We still choose to play. Parents are asked to sign forms for their kids to play because of the dangers of the sport. Nothing is different."

Goodell is killing the sport. I for one have zero interest in watching a game where teams march unimpeded down the field.

Does he realize what happened with the Arena league? Scores were 60-63 every game, great runners had thirty yards a game, and the team that lost had a drop instead of a TD.

The funny thing is a college player is laying in the hospital paralyzed and they didn't kick the kid that hit him out of school and smear his name as a dirty player.

Whats his name was on last night nfl network the GM for KC i think. he said they have no intention to correct penalty calls even though reviewed by instant replay shows that they made the wrong call. So right there tells you that these guys are all about power and profits and not about safety and fairness.

Also, wait until the next time an offensive linemen throws a dirty block and a DL or LB gets knocked out of some games with a knee injury and see if a $75,000 fine gets put on them. Won't happen because a) the public won't notice it and Goodell only cares about perception and b) offenses have to score.

one way to solve the problem is as it should be is don't throw a pass to a receiver that puts him in harms way to a defensive players right to put on a hit . these Morons want to say that the defense must reinvent how to tackle a guy who may not be able to sustain his position on the field of play that they the defensive player must yield . a couple of weeks ago i saw someone take the titans QB and body slam him like a rag doll .

Marcus wiley made a really good point.

1st he said there was a play where he was going after peyton manning (who is 6'5") and he was aiming for this chest and closed his eyes before impact and his team mate on the other end cut manning low bringing him down a few inches and he wound up hitting manning in the head and got flagged for it.

He also said that NFL teams DO NOT practice tackling, so how can they practice new tackling rules? you can't tackle your won players during practice especially not the QB unless you wanna get cut

High scores int he Arena League had NOTHING to do witht he absence of big hits. They had some pretty brutal ones due to the sideline wall.

Wasn't the kid who is paralyzed the one doing the hitting? This argument makes no sense.

Chris Mortenson was talking about this on a radio show today. Saying the tackling in the NFL has gooten terribly sloppy. Partly due to the fact that no one runs a camp like they should. They don't practice tackling. He thinks the lack of contact in training camps increases the injuries as a whole in the NFL.

I am of the few that thinks this old rule should be enforced more diligently. I dont like the idea of loosing Holmes Edwards Cotchery Keller... because of a helmet to helmet hit. Would much rather not have all the injurys and play with a complete team.

Hockey-style hits aren't like mid-field collisions. Hits along the side wall are perpendicular, not head on.

Doesn't matter, the point is the collisions. The point is that if you are going to freak out about impacts causing injuries, you have to be consistent. The NCAA isn't knee jerking about a college kid getting paralyzed, but the NFL is jumping the gun about a player who always misses time getting knocked out.

Fine, I won't watch if it turns into an all out scoring league. Is that supposed to put me in my place? f*** off with your aimless attack posts.

And yes, it is about scores. The NFL has taken every chance it has to increase scoring in recent years. Look at the portrayal of the Patriots and Panthers after their SB. Who did they beat to get in there? Rams and Colts. The defensive teams won so the rules got changed. Pretending the league suddenly cares about player health is to ignore the first four decades where they didn't, or to assume the league was so stupid they thought it was okay to slam around, head to head. That attitude is hard to buy by the seventies, much less the eighties on.

It's not gonna turn into AFL-esque scoring. You are aloud to hit people over the middle in the AFL. There are many reasons scoring is higher in the AFL. The prohibition of launched helmet-to-helmet hits is NOT one of them.

Who do you want to be consistent? The NFL doesn't control the NCAA.

The NFL DOES care about player health. Why else would they make the rules? Why do you think research is done on collisions and concusions? The players are the product.

You talk about about my posts being aimless when NONE of your arguments have any basis in reality.

Yeah, just because you are allowed to do something doesn't mean it happens a lot. They are allowed to run the ball, they just don't. The vast majority of passes are downfield, especially targeting the receiver that is allowed a running start.

Yeah, they are seperate, but the point is that the NCAA doesn't feel the need to shut down defenses. Don't pretend you don't understand that is what I'm saying. How is it that the NCAA, with a much larger base of football players who aren't already millionaires, isn't throwing weight around and the NFL is?

The NFL does care about player health. But that isn't their only concern. I wished I lived in the sunshine world where when the NFL says something I ate it up unquestioningly and asking for more. I guess I'll live in my world where I question motives, especially when prior circumstances give me pause.

Way to make my argument for me.

The NFL isn't 'shutting down defenses' by increasing fines for helmet to helmet hits. As far as the NCAA, no I have no idea what the f*** you're talking about. The NCAA has all sorts of rules if that's what you mean by 'throwing weight around.' The NCAA can't fine a kid with no money $75,000. However, they HAVE suspended kids for stupid, dangerous hits: http://www.usatoday....lmet-hits_N.htm

Apparently this was this Big Ten's choice but if that's who is the organization who makes the call you can't fault the NCAA for NOT doing it, or the NFL for the NCAA NOT doing it.

So now for a health concern to be valid it has to be the only concern of a league? How does that make sense? Are companies who follow OSHA laws stupid if they also save money by keeping employees safe?

What motive are you questioning? Keeping players safe is in the best interest of the league. It has nothing to do with sunshine.
