Kelly might actually get a chance to start for the jets if we trade him there.

Yea,  I just read mono can be a 3-7 week recovery.  I couldn't believe it!  Who knew an 8th grade kissing disease could be a season killer?

Oh ROFL, can you imagine if he actually stuck and started producing, how much that would honk off Patriots fans?  I might be all for a Jets trade for that reason alone.

If he is good enough to pose a threat to the Patriots as the QB on the Jets, that would honk off a lot Colts fans lol

I would rather have Jacoby than Baker Mayfield. That kid has shown nothing and was the top pick in the draft.    

Baker has pro bowlers & first round talent all around him & only completing 50% of his throws tonight.  The Jets ineptitude has him leading but he’s been struggling this season.

Yep and the colts have a good relationship with the jets. I bet Kelly gets traded. Man the jets look like a big fat mess.

Here in NY Metro area Jets fan dreaming of trading for a QB who is already here in NY . But the fans wishes may not be the same as the Jets owner and GM .

If you play contact sports if your not completely healed you can rupture your spleen and die.

I hear some of you people's comments about Kelly's off the field issues but he didn't steal crab legs from a grocery store and rape a woman like one qb did. And that guy is an NFL  starter.  Kelly was/is an arrogant guy. He doesn't take any crap.  So has he gotten into some trouble,  sure,  but it was really minor stuff. I think it would be hilarious if he gets traded to a team in your division and becomes a thorn in your side for the next decade.

I’m such a homer I do take it personally.  I’m all for this team winning.  By any means necessary. JB is 1-1 but has done enough to be 2-0 both road games.  Yet he gets no credit with some. Sure he deserves criticism. Yeah it’s wise to stay cautious. But give Frank & JB the chance to grow together.  If Frank feels we need to make a change, I trust his judgment. Regardless, I’m choosing to enjoy the ride.

Great comeback reply. Thank you. I enjoy passion and rationale at the same time. Certainly willing to let Frank mold a new QB into the role providing he shows ability and upside. The minute those two things go away, gotta change. JB has certainly done enough to be worthy of further observation, but we also have to be realistic in the approach. If JB falters, you can’t ride the horse until it dies, this isn’t a generational QB were talking about, none of the QB’s on the team are. But if JB has a hiccup, you seriously have to look at the guy behind him. The team has enough assists to win now. Let’s not become too attached.

I honestly think Baker is super talented but immature. He will be ok if he gets that fixed.

Can we loan Kelly to the Jets for as long as Darnold is out and then take him back, then we can see how Kelly does in the NFL and decide if he is better or worse than JB once and for all lol get it done Ballard!

 

It would be interesting if the NFL had a loan mechanism, but I don't think it would be workable.

Mono in an adult is serious issue, especially for an athlete in a contact sport.  the spleen swells a lot and takes a longer period to reduce back to normal.  He could feel fine but with an enlrged spleen and contact involved in football, he risks a ruptured or lacerated spleen and he'd be done for the year....  Bet his recovery is longer part of 7 weeks.

Hoyer is Hoyerible. If he could be traded, the Pats would have done it. Frankly I'm still surprised we picked him up. 

I'm not.  Hoyer is not here for what he can do ON the field.  He's a mentor.  His job is to help Brissett and the rest of the team prepare for games by running the scout team, working with Brissett on issue areas and helping with film study.

 

Hoyer survived for several seasons as an NFL starter by doing everything JB7 needs to learn right now.  Being quick, decisive, and a smart passer allowed him a couple winning seasons even despite having practically no arm strength or mobility. 

 

I think the hope is that JB7, as well as possibly the new quarterback if we draft one, will learn from Hoyer and absorb some of his wisdom.  it's not a bad use of the QB2 slot.  And it's something Chad Kelly is just not capable of at all.

I've always said the NFL needs a farm team system.

I fully agree. Have a 12-14 round draft, have your preseason roster at 120, allow your active roster at 60 with everyone active, set up up a scout team league. Whether or not it makes money or not, who cares if you’re developing players that were on the fringe. You get to send down the Hogan’s, the Cameron Wake’s, Joe Theismans, Warren Moons and countless others, whether from the Canadian league or some other form. Get them health insurance, appropriate training staff, a salary that is just like the AA-AAA baseball teams get, just enough to buy a pair of underwear now and then. There has to be some business model for the nfl that could work to groom the kids who just weren’t quite ready after the draft year but with 1-3 years of effective minor league coaching, could come up and help the main team at some point and the team controls that groups movement for 3 seasons. Idk, just seems logical.

With the physicality of the game and the penchant for injury very few NFL caliber athletes are going to be happy with the idea of burning their bodies for years at low pay just to get to the NFL level as a pro.

 

The reason this stuff works for the MLB and NHL is that a dozens the guys at the highest developmental level could play as a full fledged pro if the situation called for it.  I'm not sure the same talent pool exists in football, AAF notwithstanding.

I understand the difference between the NFL and the MLB. I’m not sure what the answer is. Maybe developmental leagues that offer film study, walk through, light contact drills, weight training etc... Develop like OTA’s and training camps. Give the teams access and control of movement over these guys while in such a program. Idk, seems like teams could develop those kids that were just a tad under the threshold of making the 53, no room on a practice squad for the position perhaps and unknown to other teams for their practice squad. Or increase the practice squads, that would probably work come to think of it. Make room for 8-10 players for each side of the ball and 1-2 special team types. I’d also like to see a way that teams can drop a guy from the 53 (would like to see it be 60) and designate a couple as safe to the team so as not to get poached from the PS. I have a lot of wants :hat:

    • I liked it a lot, but I found that baseball purists did not like it as much. Even though the Yankees beat the Mets most of the time, most of the games were competitive and the games the Mets won brought good memories.   I recall where I was when this happened. (I get chills. ) I remember walking in the street and I jumped up when utility man Matt Franco got this walk-off hit off Mariano Rivera at the bottom of the 9th. My eyes glanced at a man sitting in his car, who screamed at the same time. It was rare for Mariano to blow a save. This was around 1996 or so.     Listen to that great call. I love it!   That was one of my favorite Mets teams.   
    • Again in terms of projecting values out, this all depends on how we see Braden Smith valued.    I said to go high at $10M a year based on a few things:   1) If you asked many people is Braden Smith a top-5 RT, most would say no. I think he is. either way a top-5 RT slots in at an AAV of $10M a year right now   2) Most of the guys getting top $ at RT got that top dollar by getting it on the open market. Lane Johnson is the exception. However, the Eagles gave him that extension when there was originally talk about him moving to LT as Peters aged. The guys that signed extensions with their current teams got $10M a year or less.    3) This is to say I think Smith can totally get over $10M a year if he hits the open market and wants to test the waters. However, if the Colts looked to extend him now and give him financial security as a 2nd round pick that has not made much money yet in his career and did so in a year where the cap came down and a lot of players are going to take less money if they are not a superstar, I think him signing a deal averaging $10M a year would be a win for him and the Colts     At the end of the day, my entire point of this thread was to simply point out that us investing $50-$55M in a starting OL out of a future cap of around $200-$220M is very, very doable and arguably reasonable in terms of how Ballard likes to build through the trenches. Having an OL tie up 25% of your cap and a combined OL and QB tie up less than 40% of your cap for the next 3-4 years is actually very, very reasonable.   I have admittedly been a big advocate for Trent Williams. He is aging, sure. But he has shown no signs at all of slipping. And he even has one less year of wear and tear on his body from sitting out a year with the whole tumor fiasco where Washington really didn't do right by him with their medical team. So would I throw a 4 year deal at him with big money where the only guaranteed money was paid out in the first two years and then there were salaries on the back end that can easily allow a cut if the performance dips? Absolutely.   Either way, this was really to just get our base chatting about all this since the canned narrative everyone is spitting out is the same narrative that is being fed to fans from the media that says "they'll have too much tied up in their OL with the extension for Kelly and the upcoming extensions for Nelson and Smith." I'm just saying if we managed things the way guys like Mike Bluem have been, then we can comfortably invest in a top FA  LT if we wanted to without it being overly painful downstream. 
    • I personally do not like the idea of trying to come up with a stop gap or developmental guy at the most inportant position on the OL. Solidify that position with a dependable proven LT whether it  Villanueva or someone else. Same with DE. Find a proven pass rusher and pay him. Use the draft or WR, CB and solidifying other positions including OL. I think we are very close to being in  SB contention and 3 to 4 good players may push us over the top. We can't foolishly throw money at these guys but if we are prudent we have plenty of money to carry us.
    • Yeah, my little voice partly thinks the same (perhaps contract year type of performance). I just hate saying it out loud, as he was considered very very raw when drafted. He was used all over the place at USC, and relied way too much on his natural gifts instead of technique. Maybe he was a bit lazy, but it's also possible he was just raw, wasn't able to focus, and things are just now clicking. Or maybe he was lazy a bit, and finally grew up or matured enough to commit to his craft.    He's an interesting guy to follow. I could see it falling either way. I remember his recruiting out of HS (think he was out of Mainland) Thought for sure he'd end up at FSU, UF, or Auburn. My FSU and Auburn buds thought he was a lock lol. One of my FSU buds swore USC bought him a car lol. I was hoping ND would offer, but rumor was, he didn't have close to the grades needed.    
    • Hmmm I watched the show on  prime (all episodes) And Although I haven't seen many of the games from last year I found him to be pretty damn good and a very nice guy. I mean I wasn't a huge fan before but I think we got a winner at Qb and im looking forward to watching all year. Watch the show on prime  its worth the watch
