  1. Baldinger on Darnold

  2. Guice torn ACL

    terrible news for the kid. I had my eyes on him for a rookie draft. Was thinking he was the 2nd best rookie RB. Now I plan to draft him late and IR him for next year, but it's all a matter of who wants to sacrifice the earleiesrt pick to do so because no doubt there ore others looking to do same.
  3. By: Henry McKenna | 21 hours ago There were a few things to like about Baker Mayfield during the first episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” But there was so much more to like about Jarvis Landry. The Cleveland Browns receiver was set up by the showrunners to be the most likable character, not only because of his talent but also his persona. It’s so easy to like Landry, whose mentality upended the status quo of the Browns’ losing franchise during one of the receiver meetings. Landry delivered an epic and exasperated speech. The veteran receiver seemed done with his position-mates taking off practices with injuries Landry seemed to think were fake. Landy’s message comes in the same episode where the coaches make it clear: the Browns need to get tougher if they’re going to win a game in 2018, something they couldn’t do in 2017. Landry and the coaches are on the same page. Mayfield, meanwhile, hasn’t gotten there yet. The rookie quarterback got challenged by his coach Hue Jackson, and didn’t seem to rise to the occasion. Jackson approached Mayfield one morning at the start of practice to see when he woke up. Mayfield tried to dodge the question, but eventually explained he tends to get to the facility two hours before practice. “You ever come in with your boy, [Tyrod Taylor],” Jackson asked. Taylor is the veteran who Mayfield intends to beat in the quarterback competition. (During the episode, Landry touts Taylor for working tirelessly at every hour of the day by showing up first and leaving last.) “He does his own little workouts in the morning,” Mayfield responded. “Where’s your core workout in the morning? You start starting your career now. It’s a competition. Everything you do, baby. You know how they do it. Why not?” Jackson asked. Mayfield walked away without a comment. I repeat: The first-overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft was asked to work harder. And he had no answer but to walk away. The show highlighted a nice drive by Mayfield where he demonstrated strong leadership and execution with the second team offense. But he was still running with the second team. Taylor, the man reporting to work earlier than Mayfield, was running with the No. 1 offense. Mayfield is still figuring out how to be a professional — and, frankly, an adult. That’s fair. He’s 23 years old. Landry, meanwhile, has it figured out. He’s the hero the Browns deserve. He’s the one they so desperately need.
  4. wut? Ronald Jones is not a known pass-catcher. Montgomery was a (mediocre) WR before Green Bay converted him. They are nothing alike, IMO.
  5. Corey Coleman traded to Bills

    Calloway should claim that Josh Gordon planted the pot under the seat. Baker Mayfield is teaching them how to run from the police. However, the police showed a better 40 time than Mayfield, so maybe that's not such a good idea. Meanwhile, Coleman is laughing his arse off.
  6. Your Homer Team Training Camp Chatter

    Not much else to report about Jets camp, except rookie TE Chris Herndon is flashing well out there. He will likely face a suspension at some point due to his horrible DUI arrest (way over the limit and involved in an accident at 5 am on I-80). All the reports about Bridgewater doing well too. I think most of that is hype because Bridgewater will likely be trade bait after a QB or 2 go down with injuries elsewhere. Bridgewater looked no more than average to me when I went to camp last week.
  7. Your Homer Team Training Camp Chatter

    For the first time in what seems like decades, there is a love fest happening at Jets camp between the usually ascerbic beat reporters and this young team. I've been to camp only once so far this year, but follow the plethora of tweets from all the beat reporters and from Jetsnation.com. There hasn't been this much positivity in many, many years. 1st and foremost, Darnold, after having missed the first 2.5 days of practice while his agent hammered out some contract language, has been getting the majority of reps, and many with 1st team. 2nd: keep your eyes on RB Trenton Cannon. He is impressing out there every single day. Two plays on this drive Darnold has bought extra time before throwing it away out of bounds...small but important for a rookie, not forcing throws or throwing picks, willing to get to the next play #JetsCamp #Jets Rookie Trenton Cannon is lighting it up at RB. He will be the #3 behind Crowell and Bilal Powell for sure. I think Rawls gets cut within the next week or two. Canon has shown he can pick up the blitz as well. typical tweet for Cannon:

  9. RIP Tony Sparano

    what's the over-under on the settlement amount? RIP Tony. Such a sad loss.
  10. RIP Tony Sparano

    He died of heet disease, per the latest report. Hospital sent him home. We'll let the lawyers provide the proof of incompetence, which I have no doubt they will before the inept hospital insurer settles.
  11. RIP Tony Sparano

    he went to the hospital on Thursday complaining of chest pains. Released. Sent home. 2 days later: fatal coronary. The malpractice lawyers should be lining up at the Sparano family's front door. RIP Tony. He was a good guy as reported by everyone who ever worked with him or knew him.
  12. Kenneth Dixon

    avoiding all aspects of Ravens offense. If you think RB is bad, just check out the other positions.
  13. Saquan Barley themed team names?

    Saquan Barley? How about Saquan Barleycorn Must Die?
  14. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/07/10/report-bills-aware-of-allegations-against-lesean-mccoy/amp/?__twitter_impression=true A disturbing domestic violence allegation has surface on social media against Bills running back LeSean McCoy, and it has sparked an effort by the team to learn more (abuse pictures apparently removed). Maybe fake allegations? Hope so.
  15. Gronk possible trade?

    FWIW (I don't know whoo Kurkjian is or how reliable his info is): Adam Kurkjian‏Verified account @AdamKurkjian FollowFollow @AdamKurkjian More From multiple sources, here's what I have re: the Gronk rumors. Told Belichick wanted to trade him. Offers on the table w both the Titans and 49ers. He and Robert Kraft had a closed-door meeting to discuss. Tom Brady threatened to retire if the deal went through.
