MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6
MikeGangGree... Icon : (24 April 2015 - 09:40 PM) TEH RANGERS
santana Icon : (24 April 2015 - 11:32 PM) TEH WIZ
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:57 AM) Teh Suarez
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) Vic Beasley is all speed. No moves, no power. Straight up the field. Could have some big games, then nothing in the next
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) If we don't get Mariota, we should be looking at Schreff or trading down, IMO.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) A lot of good edge rushers in this draft... I wouldn't want to take Dupree that high.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 AM) Until next time fellas!
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:19 PM) Helloooooooooo

Mark SanchezEd Mulholland/USA TODAY SportsCan Mark Sanchez rebound and lead the New York Jets to the playoffs?

This year has been the season of the improbable in the NFL. From Peyton Manning overcoming multiple surgeries and the ravages of age to lead his team to Super Bowl contention to Adrian Peterson posting fantastic numbers after coming back from a devastating knee injury to Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck leading a rookie quarterback class that could become the best in NFL history, the 2012 campaign has been one of unexpected occurrences.

But the last three weeks of this season could see two even more unlikely accomplishments than the aforementioned items.

What could be more implausible? Try the idea that the New York Jets and the St. Louis Rams have a very good chance of ending this season as playoff teams.

Let's start with New York's road to the playoffs.

Through Week 14, the Jets are a game behind the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals for the last playoff spot in the AFC and will need some help to vault over those teams.

Some good news on this front is that the Bengals and Steelers are slated to play each other in Week 16, and if Pittsburgh loses (and it might, given that it has lost three of its past four games and Cincinnati has been playing quite well of late), it would go a long way toward helping the Jets overcome the tiebreaker edge the black and gold currently have over them as a result of their Week 2 win over New York.

The Steelers also have to face the Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns (who have won three straight, including a win over Pittsburgh). Add that to Cincinnati facing an improving Philadelphia squad in Week 15 and Baltimore in Week 17 (in a game that the Ravens may need to win for playoff-seed positioning), and it doesn't seem like that long of a shot for New York to close a one-game gap with these clubs, as long as the Jets win their last three contests.

Winning three in a row might sound unlikely, as the Jets are only three weeks removed from an embarrassing 49-19 loss to New England and only two weeks from an almost equally embarrassing 7-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals, but they have been playing much better in several areas of late.

The Jets have been run-blocking quite well (ESPNNewYork.com writer Rich Cimini gave them an "A" grade for their showing against the Jacksonville Jaguars this past weekend), and that has led to four straight games with at least 119 yards on the ground.

New York's defense also has held up in coverage, as it ranks third in the league in passing yards per attempt allowed and second in completion percentage allowed.

Those strengths are especially important because they dovetail quite well with the Jets' schedule over the next three weeks.

The Jets start with a road game against a Titans club that has struggled to deal with a slew of offensive line injuries and has gained only 186 yards on the ground, thrown five interceptions and lost three fumbles over the past two weeks. On defense, Tennessee has given up 100 or more rush yards in nine of its 13 games.

After that is a home game against the San Diego Chargers, who will make a cross-country trip with a likely lame duck coach (Norv Turner) and with quarterback Philip Rivers playing some of the worst football of his career. (His 40.1 Total QBR mark is by far his lowest total in that category in the Total QBR era.) The Chargers also have given up 100 or more rushing yards in five of their past seven games.

Last up is a game against a Buffalo squad that has been beset by injury (12 players on injured reserve), that ranks 28th in rush yards allowed and that the Jets have beaten eight of the past nine times they have played (including six straight).

St. Louis' potential playoff path is built somewhat similarly.

The Rams are currently a half-game behind three NFC wild-card contenders (Washington, Dallas and Minnesota) and a game and a half behind two others (Seattle and Chicago) for the two wild-card spots in the conference. That means they have to move ahead of four of those teams.

If St. Louis wins its last three games (against Minnesota, Tampa Bay and Seattle), it would finish with a 9-6-1 record and thus would be ahead of any team with seven losses. Because one of those wins would be against the Vikings, that would give them seven losses (if the Vikings win their other two games) and move St. Louis in front of them.

With the Cowboys and Redskins playing each other in Week 17, one of those teams would be assured of seven losses (assuming that game does not end up in a tie) and place that team behind the Rams in the standings.

At that point, all St. Louis would need is for Seattle and the winner of the Washington-Dallas game to lose one more game or Chicago to lose two. Stranger things certainly have happened, so it isn't out of the question as long as St. Louis can win its three games.

This might seem difficult because the Rams don't have a great offense, but consider that pro-football-reference.com has St. Louis listed with a 5.6 adjusted net yards per attempt mark (a metric that takes sacks and interceptions into passing-game YPA productivity), a total that is actually higher than the mark posted by the Indianapolis Colts. Combining that passing attack with a solid rushing attack (ranked 16th in the NFL in rush yards per game) is the type of offensive formula that could come away with three wins if the defense does its part.

The numbers say this defense definitely can hold its own. The Rams rank tied for second in the league in sacks (39), tied for 13th in interceptions (13) and tied for sixth in passing touchdowns allowed (14). That touchdowns allowed number looks even better when noting the Rams gave up nine of their 14 passing touchdowns in Weeks 6-8, which included contests against Green Bay and New England. Take out that mini-slump, and St. Louis has given up only five touchdown passes in 10 games.

The Rams are also quite stout against the run, having allowed fewer than 100 yards to opposing running backs in nine of their 13 games this year and posting a superb 41.6 percent good blocking rate (GBR) allowed mark. A GBR of 40 percent or less is a benchmark of excellence in this category, and the Rams' showing here offers evidence of just how disruptive their defense can be against opposing ground games.

Add it all up for these two teams, and it could mean this unlikely season has more drama left in its final three weeks.

What about the 2010 Seahawks (7-9)? They not only got in, they beat the Saints (11-5) in the first round.

If I thought the Jets even had a chance to go to the second round Id be all for the playoffs but I think they have almost zero chance of winning a wild card game.

Lets see the Jets would either have to play the Ravens,Texans,Broncos,or Patriots depending on how the next two games played out if the stars align and the Jets make it.

Not to mention the game would be at their home stadium and we dont have the offensive line,running game,receiving core,or defense,we had in 09/10. Not to mention the special teams is struggling a long with Mark struggling and scared of making mistakes too.

Really I'm not against the playoffs but I really dont want to see the Jets embarrassed on National television in a wild card game. I know any given Sunday but practically every team winning team with the exception of the Colts early in the season obliterated this team. I see no chance what so ever.

I just see this scenario as a losing situation all around. I never want to root against my team but for one it would hurt the draft spot and next I have a big feeling that if the Jets make the playoffs(regardless of the fact that the Jets had one of the easiest schedules in the NFL statistically at the start of the season)I think it will further hurt the team

Im positive Mark isn't the answer but if the Jets make the playoffs I am positive next year that fans will say "Hey the Jets made the playoffs 3 of 4 years that Mark has been with the team" and then it would surprise me if he got a whole new extended contract with the team.

Sorry to sound so negative but I believe this team needs to rebuild in a lot of areas and I think the playoffs would just make it harder to rebuild.

This is just my take on things. I didn't feel this way in 2009 and 2010 because the team had a great defense and a great running game so the Jets had a chance to win almost every game. I just dont see it this year.

I also understand that a higher draft pick doesn't mean the picked player will pan out but the averages are better. Another thing Im thinking of is if the Jets make the playoffs then with two playoff teams in the division that would entitle a harder schedule next year than it would if just the division winner made it.

Again just my thoughts and take on the subject.
