  1. Colon is maybe spring training cannon fodder at this point. His last year in the majors with 2018 Texas he really was just taking up a roster spot on a hopeless team and getting battered all over the yard. Now fast forward two years. Sure maybe the control will still be there but the velocity won't and he would get absolutely battered. No thanks

    Two NFL cornerbacks are facing multiple charges after an incident at a party on Wednesday night in South Florida.

    The New York Giants Deandre Baker and Seattle Seahawks Quinton Dunbar are each facing four counts of armed robbery with a firearm, while Baker is facing an additional four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, after the two allegedly robbed guests at a party in Miramar, Florida, the Miramar police department said on Thursday.

     

     

    Insane story here. Unfathomable stupidity. And he was the Giants 1st round pick last year. Going to end up another strike against Gettleman and another black mark on the Giants franchise


  3. Per Manish Mehta the Jets are close to signing Logan Ryan. It makes perfect sense, scheme fit is perfect. If Desir pans out and Bless Austin continues to improve we may actually get somewhat decent CB play in 2020. Poole is a top slot corner. Overall the Jets may field a quality defense in 2020. Above average for sure if everyone is able to stay healthy

    Well guess they went chalk with the tackle pick.  Hopefully this guy isn't another Tony Mandarich, the athleticism with the size is almost too good to be true.

    Yea. Mandarich was a monster himself but just an absolute mental trainwreck as well. A total jerk and just juicing out of his mind

    I'll trust Douglas on this one. It's so rare to see someone of that size with that kind of athleticism and wingspan. If you properly coach him up and give him the right kind of guidance and mentorship he can be an all time great at his position. It's not often you're able to say that about a player.


  5. Big one here. Out of nowhere.

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001110390/article/patriots-to-trade-rob-gronkowski-to-buccaneers

    Tom Brady is in a new home, and a familiar face is joining him for a play date.

    Rob Gronkowski is coming out of retirement to again play in the NFL, but he'll be doing so in Tampa. The New England Patriots are trading Gronkowski and a seventh-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.


  6. To me personally it's starting to feel a bit bleak regarding if they have a season, how long it will be...what kind of playoffs we'd have. I can see them using this kind of "special" year to expand playoffs and get more teams involved. Right now I'm holding out hope...maybe by May 15th they can reconvene and do two weeks of spring training, and then start a season June 1st. Get 4 full months of baseball year. But even that seems too optimistic

    Right now everybody involved fears that nightmare scenario of opening too early and having a player (or players) get seriously sick or god forbid perish. Then everything will have to be shuttered again


  7. Oh come on Jamal. Love him as a player (though don't see him as untradeable) but he's a bit of a petulant baby at times. And he loves drama. Though he always shows up to play

    He's under contract for two more years...NEXT offseason is when they'll get into the nitty gritty of contract negotiations to make him a Jet for life. He's just going to have to be patient. Douglas is going to stick to his guns. He's going to listen to any offers that come his way but it's doubtful Adams ever gets moved

    Bleh welp we're drafting a WR early now.

    This was a reasonable contract. Why the hell didn't Douglas bring him back for that?

    Will Enunwa even be ready to play this year? All we have now is Crowder

    Douglas needs to get some weapons for Sam. For a team as thin at WR as we were already you just can't let somebody like Anderson depart with nobody to replace those catches


  9. Like these two signings. Kyle Van Roten and Connor McGovern. McGovern finally stabilizes the center position

     

     
     
    The #Jets are signing former #Broncos C Connor McGovern to a three-year, $27 million deal that includes $18M fully guaranteed, per source.
     
     
    The #Jets are signing former #Panthers OL Greg Van Roten, source said. One of the top O-linemen available.
     

  10. Jets needed an offensive lineman badly and didn't seal the deal with Conklin or Glasgow. PATHETIC

    I understand they can get a really good one with their draft slot, but do you really want to have no choice but to get one? What about protecting Darnold?

    Lots of smoke but no fire so far with the Jets. They're in on Clowney, on Van Noy. But nothing


  11.  I may have been a bit wrong about Alonso. Criticized him when he and his agent threw a fit about not being called up and issuing a statement in a sort of "who are you to behave this way, claiming you deserve to be in the majors and it's an affront you weren't called up" but you know what since then he's done nothing but say all the right things, do all the right things, and perform spectacularly

    Anyone that call Hughes “invisible” can fvck right off. 

    Kid creates constant chances. 

     

    Not constant chances yet. He's not there yet. And yes he was invisible for some long stretches this year. Him playing well now doesn't erase an otherwise disappointing rookie season production wise, but he is showing some encouraging signs

    and yes it would help if people on the receiving end of his work put the puck in the net too. That hasn't been happening.

    People called Nico a bust too because he was being pushed off the puck too easy his first year. 

    Blackwood was in the ECHL at the beginning of last season. He was called a bust. 

    Is Zacha the offensive player we wanted? No. But he's developing into a useful all-situations player who can play wing and center. This black and white thinking is just silly. 

     

    nobody called him a bust. He was not a top talent 1st overall either. He was a very good well rounded first but not a guy thought of as a potential superstar. He was thought of as what? A 70pt two way player? That's a valuable commodity. And I'll think he'll be just that

    Matthews is exactly the level of prospect Jack was coming in. In fact Hughes had better numbers in the USNTDP. 

    They're different players though style wise. Skillsets a bit different. But both elite in their own ways. I would put him ahead of Matthews entering the league. Matthews had the physical development edge

    Even for someone who’s a constant pessimist, you’re an absolute fvcking clown.

    Yakupov had an electric first year. People were all excited to see what he’d turn into. it was the lack of growth and development that did him in. 

    Yak was on pace for 53 points his rookie year. No teenager in Devils history has ever scored that many points. Nico had 52; and Jack isn’t buoyed by playing next to the Hart winner this year.

    It is a bit of a problem. Hughes was a big big prospect. Maybe not generational but one of the biggest and most anticipated NHL arrivals in the last 20 years. Not Crosby or McDavid levels but just under with unmistakable elite talent. Yes he is somewhat undersized and young but even the most cautious prognosticators would not expect this kind of paltry production for someone of his talent. 28 pts in a projected 74 games is poor. And he's had some nice flashes but also looked a lot more lost than expected for some long stretches. We need him to put up Pastrnak, Panarin, McKinnon #'s and consistently. That is expected of him by 21 years old. He was more highly touted than any of those guys

    Realistic expectations for Hughes were maybe 40-50 pts this year. 60-70 the next...and then skies the limit after that. Perhaps that needs to be revised? This is a lot slower start than expected for someone who already has the skill level that he does.

    For some guys this stuff plagues them forever. Pucks never go in for them and they never will. Look at Zacha. He's gotten better, he's getting better. But finally reaching 30 total pts in his 4th full year is not the kind of production we drafted. If Hughes is a 60-70 point per year guy then he's going to be something of a disappointment. We drafted A+, not B/B+
