Trevor Lawrence leaving it open to return for his senior season with Clemson.


Recommended Posts

Say it with me, Fireman Ed, J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets... :) 

 

In other words, if you fire Adam Gase, there is a chance I am willing to come to your team. Otherwise, all bets are off. I commend Joe Burrow for doing what he has been doing so far, same with Justin Herbert, going to a bad team but still producing even if they do not result in team Ws.

Remember that Peyton Manning did the exact same thing that Lawrence is thinking about doing. If Peyton had left after his junior season as many expected at the time then the J.E.T.S., Jets, Jets, Jets were positioned to draft him.  Knowing that...Peyton made the wise decision to return for his senior year and ultimately was drafted by Bill Polian and the Colts.  The rest is history.

It's not only Gase, it's Woody Johnson (Jets owner) as well. 

IMO Joe Douglas has gotten himself into a bad situation.

Who believes the Jets can turn it round in one year. He should do an Elway or play out his senior year and do an Elway again if it means avoiding the Jets. A lousy team with a good QB is a lousy team.

This would be interesting.

 

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence set the NFL world on fire Tuesday when he said he would consider returning for his senior season rather than enter the 2021 NFL Draft.

This would be an entertaining twist for sure. He has until what, December to decide right?

Marketing, he is to graduate in December. He would end up doing a masters program id assume for the rest of his time

 

Wasn't Russell Wilson in the beginning of his masters program after transferring from NC State to Wisconsin before declaring for the NFL Draft?

 

Makes the Jets' decision to keep Darnold easy if that is the case with TL staying put.

It would certainly add a twist.   I'm hoping he stays.

Me too. Jets will destroy him. Course we destroyed Andrew luck so not sure we can point to that argument in this case very much

Good point.  I'm torn on this because I'm not in favor of players choosing were they go in the draft.   But with another year of eligibility to stay at college, I have no problem with him doing that.  Anyone know his financial situation?   Would the $$ be too enticing to pass up?   He's probably getting paid well at Clemson. haha

Probably. And being a D1 QB, he’s likely getting laid well too:lol:

I would assume as he was a grad transfer why he got to play right away

    • Just for some perspective, here are the first four years' picks from Hall Of Fame GM Bill Polian.  Not every pick is a home run.  Even for the best GM's.   1998 Draft 1/1 QB Peyton Manning - hall of fame, multiple pro bowls 2/32 WR Jerome Pathon - meh, didn't last long 3/71 WR E. G. Green - better than meh, but nothing to shout about 4/93 G Steve McKinney - didn't last, injury issues i think 5/135 LB Antony Jordan - meh 7/190 G Aaron Taylor - nada 7/231 DB Corey Gaines - nada 1999 Draft 1/4 RB Edgerrin James - hall of fame, multiple pro bowls 2/36 LB Mike Peterson - pretty good, left via free agency 3/63 G Brandon Burlesworth - backup, meh 4/96 CB Paul Miranda - meh 5/139 DE Brad Scioli - started some games, but not amazing 7/210 P Hunter Smith - long time punter 7/250 LB Corey Terry - meh 2000 Draft 1/28 LB Rob Morris - multiple year starter, but did not fit into scheme 2/59 LB Marcus Washington - pro bowl one year, but did not last long 3/91 CB David Macklin - high hopes, but had injuries 4/122 DT Josh Williams - meh 5/138 C Matt Johnson - super meh 7/235 DT Rob Renes - meh 7/238 CB Rodregis Brooks - backup and meh 2001 Draft 1/30 WR Reggie Wayne - multiple pro bowls, potential hall of fame 2/37 S Idrees Bashir - multiple year starter 3/91 S Corey Bird - backup 4/118 T Ryan Diem - multiple year starter 5/152 CB Raymond Walls - meh 6/193 S Jason Doering - meh 7/220 G Rick DeMulling - started some games, but not memorable   Three absolute strikes.  Eight good players.  Obviously a better record than CB's first four years.  But CB isn't doing too badly by comparison.
    • I just saw a young person through a cancer scare like this.  I can tell you that dealing with it becomes exponentially harder the more people who know about it.   He's very * and now all of this is public and that is difficult   Sending positive thoughts to him and his family.  Things like this... there are not words for how difficult this is
    • As much as I hate to say it, 2 maybe three weeks will just about finish the colts. I believe they should look ahead and plan for the future. Rivers is a better than average QB in my book. I would not get rid of him for a couple of years. But you have to see what you have before that time comes. I only use Kelly as an example of waisted time. why not suit up Eason and let him run short yardage situations? He is cheaper and he needs the experience.
    • Yeah...these debates tend to devolve into strawman arguments and false choices. There's nothing wrong with objectively looking at the picks...and lamenting misses.    The first two rounds of the 2019 draft were not good. Passing on Sweat to trade back...and then passing on Brown and Metcalf...3x (if you include the tradeback from #40 to #44). I think it implies they had Rock and  Banogu atop their boards. From what I read...they were even considering Rock at #27. So I think we can judge those evaluations (up to this point).   Getting the #34 pick out of that trade back was nice...but Pittman is going to have to be a Pro Bowler for that trade-back to not be a bad move IMO.
    • I thought this was a 7-9 team so they are exceeding expectations. I’m very happy with the teams performance so far.
