Poll: You Make the Call on the Jets Coach and GM in 2015

I asked this on Twitter today and got a number of responses so I thought it was worth adding as a poll to make it easier to collect responses.

I closed the poll after getting a reasonable number of replies on it and I’ll go over the responses now:

1. Retain Rex Ryan and John Idzik (4.2%)- This ended up as the least popular option indicating that the fanbase is pretty fed up with this tandem and does not believe they can operate together. Even knowing tht it was playoffs or bust with this scenario most just figured its … Read the rest

2015 NFL Draft Selection Tracker

Welcome to our NFL Draft Selection Tracker. We are currently updated through the results of all the afternoon games in week 16. Hopefully this tracker will give you a better idea for your mock drafting or fan discussions as it reflects the overall SOS rather than the SOS at this moment in time.

The draft order for the first 20 selections is determined by win/loss record with ties being broken by strength of schedule.  Most draft charts will only use the current SOS, but for this chart we use the SOS projections for a teams’ entire schedule since it’s that … Read the rest

NFL Predictions: Week 16

Last week I went 13-3 SU and 9-5-2 ATS to bring the yearly records to 151-72-1 and 124-94-2.  I had a rough start to this week with Thursdays games but hopefully I can bounce back on the weekend games.

Eagles (-7.5) over REDSKINS- This is a must win game for the Eagles and while I expect the Redskins to give an effort I don’t think they have the talent to keep up with  a potential playoff team. Eagles 35 Redskins 30

Chargers (+1.5) over 49ERS- San Francisco is playing out the string and with a veteran team and … Read the rest

NFL Predictions: Week 16 Thursday Night Football

Titans (+4.5) over JAGUARS- I think its fitting that Thursday night football ends the season with perhaps the worst possible game of the last 10 years. After suffering through Jets/Titans last week Im not sure I can take back to back Tennessee games and doubt Ill give it more than  a glance. Just to keep up with the predictions Ill take the Titans to win outright.  Titans 17 Jaguars 16

Jay Cutler Benched

I’ve posted many times here on how overvalued Jay Cutler has been and now according to Adam Scheffter of ESPN he has been benched for his poor play.

The move marks yet another chapter in the Cutler contract saga that has been heavily debated since it was signed last year. It was a contract that came under a great deal of scrutiny due to the high guarantees given to someone who at best could be described as inconsistent but talented. … Read the rest

49ers Release Ray McDonald

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that they have waived defensive lineman Ray McDonald in light of a recent investigation into sexual assault charges. This was likely an easy decision for the 49ers as McDonald was entering the final year of his contract in 2015 and likely going to face a suspension by the NFL under the personal conduct policy. With the team struggling and out of the playoff race it would make little sense to deal with the questions that would come up about why McDonald remained on the team. With a strong chance that he would either be … Read the rest
