  1. Yeah a cynic would say Forte helps them tank - but honestly Bowles is coaching to win. They are trotting out a 37 year old QB and playing Jeremy Kerley over two rookies they drafted in round 3 and 4.
  2. Forte looked horrific in Week 1 but still saw a bigger workload then Powell. In Week 2 Forte looked better than he did the prior week but still nothing special - and Powell even played less than McGuire. Powell may have injured himself early in the game where it looked like his ankle rolled a bit but no injury was reported. I have no idea why the staff continues to let Forte handle most of the work though - makes zero sense for a team going nowhere.
  3. I think he was just saying Ware could come back next year and take some of the workload - not Hunt's job. He signed a 3 year contract in 2016 with pretty cheap yearly base salaries and a $1MM singing bonus. I believe he only makes about $700k next year (non-guaranteed) so if he's healthy I can see them keeping him around.
  4. The Jets offense has not been "horrible" - Powell has not produced because the coaching staff has used Matt Forte a lot.
  5. 12 team ppr: QB / 2 RB / 3 WR / TE / FL Team A gave up Johnson, Chris ARI RB; Williams, Damien MIA RB; Zenner, Zach DET RB; Butler, Brice DAL WR; Kelce, Travis KCC TE; Year 2018 Round 4 Draft Pick from Team A Team B gave up Allen, Javorius BAL RB; Collins, Alex BAL RB; Perine, Samaje WAS RB; Shepard, Sterling NYG WR; Bennett, Martellus GBP TE; Year 2018 Round 2 Draft Pick from Team C (2.01-2.03)
  6. Well he did come from the Saints. Just another reason why the Jets' coaching staff are lame ducks.
  7. I'm assuming the students were armed.
  8. So he wouldn't get in any trouble if something happened while he wasn't there? It's 8th grade - still fairly young.
  9. Can teachers just leave their classes unsupervised for 10 minutes? What if a fight broke out? What if some one got hurt in some other manner? Seems risky on his part.
  10. Martin is no sure thing but why take a bunch of junk instead of waiting to see if he can string together a few good games if you really want to sell him off?
  11. I believe they lead the league in pass attempts overall.
  12. Yeah I guess I am wrong - Rice and Forsett did catch passes. I still think of Flacco as a downfield passer for the most part.
  13. Honestly I prefer Baldwin - but Sanders has a pretty good track record himself. He only was bad last season because Siemian was overmatched. If Siemian has truly turned the corner it's not crazy to think Sanders continues to outscore Baldwin. I wouldn't trade Baldwin for Sanders but I would not be offended by the offer.
  14. Austin Sefarian-Jenkins comes back this week, giving the team another weapon. Personally I agree that Kearse's start is not sustainable but the offense has looked a little better than advertised.
  15. McCown seems to like him and he's the only "professional" WR on the roster right now. He hasn't look flashy or anything but he runs solid routes and gets open and he's been McCown's first look. The problem could be if Petty starts getting playing time as he had a connection with Robby Anderson last season. McCown will either get hurt or sent to the bench eventually.
