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

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

    • This may be the best football interview I have ever seen.  Must see for Colts, Packers or any other football fan!   Rodgers is the most candid I've seen and he's really funny.      
    • Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios.    I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.     Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!
    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
