Jets CEO and Chairman Christopher Johnson has made it clear that there’s no playoff mandate for Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles in 2018, but it sure would be nice to snap a seven-year playoff drought. Will Gang Green return to the postseason for the first time since the 2010 campaign? Here’s our fearless game-by-game predictions in the wake of the NFL schedule release: Week 1 at Lions (Sept. 10, 7 pm, Monday Night Football) The Baker Mayfield Era begins in the Motor City. (Unless it doesn’t). Rookie head coach Matt Patricia leaves The Evil Empire to face a familiar foe in primetime in his debut. Prediction: Loss (0-1) Week 2: vs Dolphins (Sept. 16, 1 pm) Adam Gase’s team was embarrassed last year at MetLife Stadium. It’ll be more competitive this time around with Ryan Tannehill (or Josh Rosen?!) under center, but Gang Green will prevail. Prediction: Win (1-1) Week 3: at Browns (Sept. 20, 8:20 pm, Thursday Night Football) Josh Allen vs Baker … [Read more...] about Jets 2018 game-by-game predictions: Will Gang Green end playoff drought?
It's the most glamorous and fascinating position in all of sports. There's just a certain aura that comes along with being a quarterback. When you play the position, words and terms like "leader," "coaches on the field," and "tough-minded" are always used to describe you. Quarterbacks are the faces of franchises and are usually the barometer of how successful a team will be on the field. However, quarterbacks are also often stoic and robotic in the media. As leaders, they aren't supposed to color outside the lines or draw any negative attention to themselves or the team. It's almost military-like: fall in line and be a good solider. But lately, that hasn't been the case. According to reports, Tom Brady still hasn't committed to playing football for the New England Patriots next season, which has caused the sports world to pause. What if the most valued players in sports started actually acting like it, and started using their power to dictate terms? The possibilities are … [Read more...] about What would happen if NFL quarterbacks started to take a stand and demand more control?
Eli Manning came from money out of Ole Miss back in 2004, with an arrest for public drunkeness on his record. He could be so mild-mannered and composed as to appear aloof in games, and he refused to play for the San Diego Chargers, influencing a draft-day trade just so the seemingly entitled QB could play for the Giants. No one holds Manning’s affluent background against him now, nor his minor slip-up with the law, nor his lack of a rah-rah demeanor, nor his kicking and screaming to make sure he’d play in New York. Instead, he has two Super Bowl rings and is praised for his steady demeanor, intelligence, and remarkable example as a franchise QB. Josh Rosen is Eli Manning -- minus the arrest. Or at least the UCLA quarterback is the closest thing to the next Eli in this heralded 2018 QB draft class. And after a decade-and-a-half of stability at the sport’s most important position under Manning, it’s fair to say the Giants’ search for a franchise QB this … [Read more...] about Josh Rosen criticized for same traits that have made Eli Manning a franchise-altering QB for the Giants
