Chaos Icon : (17 December 2014 - 06:30 PM) @RapSheet: Sources: #Michigan has made another run at Jim Harbaugh after he initially rebuffed the school. U-M has made an offer of 6 years, $48M. Wow.
Chaos Icon : (17 December 2014 - 06:33 PM) @AdamSchefter: Stunner from Chicago: Bears starting QB Jimmy Clausen this week, per source.

santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 03:19 PM) holy shit thrilling match up tonight
2JBallar01 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 04:13 PM) Does it matter who wins tonight? Draft pick wise for the Jets?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 04:16 PM) Probably not. We probably want to draft above the Titans though if that is possible, they are a team that could use a QB. The Jaguars just drafted Blake Bortles, doubt they go first round QB 2 years in a row
santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 04:29 PM) so titans win is best win
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 05:52 PM) DRAFT WINSTON
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 05:52 PM) FIRE IDZIK
2JBallar01 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 07:05 PM) I'm leaning towards wanting to draft Cooper or oline with the first pick. have a good line and or relceiver core and try and sign Bradford or trade for Cutler to play QB. And have Geno as back up for us.
2JBallar01 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 07:06 PM) Not sure if Winston can be a franchise QB. Even Mariota has question marks.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 08:25 PM) That is why we need to draft Cooper at WR and then later in the draft go and get Petty
santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 09:44 PM) clipboard jesus lead the way
santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 09:48 PM) I miss leon
ROBJETS Icon : (18 December 2014 - 11:35 PM) If the Jets would have lost last week since the Jags won the Jets would have the 2 seed right now and not stuck at the 6 seed
ROBJETS Icon : (18 December 2014 - 11:36 PM) Oh well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 11:21 AM) I think IK shows potential as a pass rusher
azjetfan Icon : (19 December 2014 - 12:50 PM) If the new HC goes to a 4-3 it will be interesting to see if Couples can play on the end.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 01:43 PM) he's probably better as a 4-3 DE then a 3-4 LBer anyway
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 01:43 PM) we'd need another DT though
santana Icon : (19 December 2014 - 02:12 PM) Rex to atlanta rumors swirling about
2JBallar01 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:35 PM) Who should be my 2 starters at WR for my fantasy. Championship game. It's between AJ Green, Djax, and Mike Evans. I have Hilton too but I think colts will sit him this week
2JBallar01 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:36 PM) I'm thinking Djax and Evans. I don't think the match up with green vs Denver
2JBallar01 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:37 PM) I have Ingram, Lamar Miller, and Lacy as my RBs and flex
santana Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:41 PM) green and desean pretty much the same risk reward
santana Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:41 PM) lock evans in and play the matchup for the other spot
santana Icon : (19 December 2014 - 03:41 PM) also might snow in denver mnf i would keep an eye on that
2JBallar01 Icon : (19 December 2014 - 04:48 PM) Good thinkin! I think I'm going to play djax. I like the match up better
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:09 PM) Atlanta would be a good landing spot for REx. He'll have Matt Ryan there so no need to develop a QB and he'll make the defense better
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:54 PM) He's not a good hc. He'll struggle anywhere.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:07 PM) Idk. I bet if he had a good offensive supporting cast with established players he would do fine. He just can't develop players. It may be like the Gruden going to the Bucs but in reverse
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:19 PM) The Redskins are In this game, I am rooting for them so we move up a spot in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:17 PM) if he goes anywhere he needs a quality QB. He can't develop a QB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:18 PM) Manish wrote a article how the Jets have to hire Nick Caserio as their GM and Josh McDaniels as their HC
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 12:29 AM) Anything Manish writes is either garbage of stolen.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 07:59 AM) He doesn't develop anything on offense.

NFL could play eight games with different teams in London, wonít expand

So whatís the long-term goal for the NFL in London? Commissioner Roger Goodell said Saturday that he wants to put a team in both London and Los Angeles.

If that happens, it wonít entail expansion of the league. The NFL, weíre told, has no plan to grow beyond 32 teams.

And that would be a wise move. Based on the reality that there arenít enough healthy and competent quarterbacks to go around for 32 teams, it would be a mistake to add one or two more franchises.

Thus, if/when teams move to London and/or Los Angeles, the league will be relocating existing teams.

As to London, itís also possible that no one will move. Peter King of TheMMQB.com reported during Football Night in America that the league could play a full slate of eight games in England, with different teams playing in each game. Every team would play in London at least once every three years.

We floated the possibility of the cereal variety pack approach earlier this month, without actually knowing that it could be a possibility. According to King, it is.

I don't really have that much of a problem with them expanding their brand over there if the demand is in place, but damn I would hate for them to relocate a team to London.

Relocating a team over here makes sense, and nor does playing eight games a season at Wembley. This proposal just smacks of the league getting too greedy and overestimating the success of the Wembley games.

At the moment with two to three a season played at Wembley, it's more than ideal for fans over here. Make that number eight and I highly doubt that as many neutral fans (ie those of other teams not playing at Wembley) will turn up throughout the season as they would have far more choice of which games to watch and the potential to be satisfied watching their own team play.

Cost is an issue too as the tickets aren't cheap. I've been to four of the games (Dolphins-Giants, Bucs-Patriots, Chargers-Saints and Broncos-49ers) and I think the average I must have paid for a ticket was in the region of £70, maybe even higher. If the NFL could sell out Wembley eight times with prices that dear - to sell it out for eight games, it would mean selling over 640,000 tickets - I'd be extremely surprised.

Additionally a number of the fans go as a once a season thing, with a large number travelling over from Europe. While that can be done extremely cheaply, the time it takes to fly and get through UK customs would be off putting, especially as you'd be looking at doing it once a fortnight!

Nice to see a perspective like that from someone from over there. If the money is there the NFL will do whatever to make it possible, but I don't see the BPL looking to relocate a squad to anywhere in the USA much less clamoring to hold some regular season matches here in the states.

There was the plan the other year to introduce a 39th Premier League game, with that round of fixtures played overseas. That died a quick death though! With the Premier League it's the TV money they rake in from overseas markets that bankrolls the league, whereas for the NFL it's the domestic market that does that. Any plans for eight games in the UK would also mean more competition against the Premier League, which will be a much greater issue than it is now.

If the NFL really wants more games in Europe (really 4 or 5 should be the maximum), it should play games in cities like Berlin, Barcelona (two cities where they used to have NFL Europe teams) or Paris as well as London. Also why not have more games in Mexico City? I remember the Cardinals-49ers game there in 2005 had a crowd of over 100,000!
