That "report" on Hill is such BS.   None of the players are working out with the team now, there are no team activities so obviously this is re-hashing some crap from a few months ago.


In fact this same stupid "report" surfaced back in February from an "anonymous source."


I love when pissant bloggers bring up old news and re-blog it as if it were current.

anyone watch draft day? I thought it was a decent movie. I would love to just sit in the war room one day during the draft and just see how everything works behind the scenes. It's fascinating to me.

Cimini really like to hear himself type... His career is both astonishing and amazing

Hill isn't as bad as the media makes him out to be he is consistanly behind the defense and to my knowledge didn't drop to many balls this year. He's only 22 and the jets knew he was a project when drafting him. yes his numbers were low but all our recievers numbers were low. Hopefully Geno takes strides this year; and is able to hit hill with a more acturate deep ball. I can see Hill beating out any reciever we draft this year

Saw this on the Football Educator. it pretty much sums up all the bloviating the football insiders are SURE some player or players a  team is going after at the draft:


Someone on Twitter recently called this the “lying season” and with good reason.  Those that are saying they know what clubs are thinking and the direction they’ll take come May 8th are lying.  They can guestimate and speculate all they want, but they won’t hear it from those in the know.  Maybe from a “media insider” or “leveraging agent” but last I checked they don’t turn in the card.  Seriously, too much is on the line and too much has been put into the process to leak or reveal any true intentions with just a few weeks prior to “The Texans are on the clock.”  Ask yourself WHY any club would do that?

18 has to be BPA whoever it is. WR is so deep that we don't need to go out of our way once the top 2 are gone.


Davante Adams should be there for us in rd2 & his numbers were crazy at Fresno, he was basically unstoppable.


"Has a rangy build with good body length and secure hands to palm the ball and make difficult one-handed grabs. Tracks and adjusts to the ball very well down field. Extends outside his frame and plucks the ball out of the air. Natural hands-catcher. Terrific athlete with good leaping ability and anticipation to properly time jumps and highpoint the ball. Wins jump balls in the red zone and shows very good hand-eye coordination to take the ball away from defenders. Exceptional production. Has a 39 1/2-inch vertical jump" 

A Crabtree type....Yea im not to stressed about not going WR in Rd1 lol.

Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage is scheduled to either visit or work out for 24 or 25 teams before the draft.

Savage's stock is sizzling right now. His agent has had to tell two teams who wanted to set up a visit that his client literally has no days left available before the May 8 draft. At 6'4/228 with what "some are calling" the "best in the draft" per SI's Peter King, Savage now looks like a legit candidate to come off the board in the second round. King suggests the Raiders at No. 33 overall as a potential fit. 

Wow, that is crazy when you consider the guy was considered a UDFA a month ago! I was hoping the Jets could take him in the 6th round......OOPS!

we need weapons at the Wr & TE in the first few rounds, sign Chris Johnson & let's go to war.

ODB/Cooks or bust IMO they both make the offense and Geno better which should be the goal

Maybe I'm giving Sports Glory undeserved credit for being a legitimate news outlet, but I love how their article claims that Hill doesn't work hard or take things seriously. Not trying to defend him at all (I still think he may not make it out of camp) , but where is there any evidence for their charges?

Dennard would be worth it, Roby wouldn't be. Two arrests are a complete red flag... Cimini's mock shows that Ebron, Beckham, Cooks, and Amaro are still available... any of those picks make make much more sense for us right now in our current position.

@a57se I bet that even Joffrey wouldn't spoil shows for people like you do. Jerk.

@a57se  Thanks for ruining it for everyone else round the world who doesn't get to see it until tonight.

@a57se  This reminds me of Ryan Nassib (Syracuse/ NY Giants) as the next big thing  last year as the player being hyped before the draft. Ho-hum....just another example pf pre-draft jockeying.

@Hoz  Any chance they are holding off on Johnson until Goodsen's case is decided?

That is quite the opposite of everything I've ever heard about hill.

@joemustgo I believe the article said "per source".... I pray we don't have a new leak!


Waning patience on Hill however, isn't a far stretch if you are a frequent participant here on TJB...

@kniff   Teddy B was still available too.  I really wonder where he goes.  His stock is falling.

 @a57se  I've read the books, so I could ruin how this season will most likely end, but I won't. It would annoy the hell out of me if you had just ruined today's episode for me......

@1969JAN12th

Nassib was never considered an UDFA though....he was in the mix of top QB's from the beginning.

@joemustgo @Hoz  I think they are holding off on anything until the draft and the fallout of players released afterwards. Idzik seems to be ultra patient and willing to wait it out. I believe he is thinking that If CJ, Reed, released player X are there after than great and if not he'll go with best available cheap player and compete.

@joemustgo @Hoz  Good chance they are but I bet they are waiting for his price to go down after all he was set to make 8 mil this yr lol.

joemustgo

@kniff @joemustgo  Agreed, but saying the team's patience with his lack of production is wearing thin (completely legitimate) is not the same as implying they are frustrated by a lack of effort.

@Wilkershakes

I've been reading reports that he has struggled throwing the ball at his private workouts with teams as well as at his Pro Day......kind of weird.

@a57se @Bent  


No, you never would have made that comment in respect of Stannis or Greyjoy.  It was clear instantly what was going to happen and why you made that comment.


Dance around it all you like, it's obvious you won't accept any responsibility whatsoever, but I still don't see what could possibly be gained from making that comment and hope you'll think twice before doing that again.

@Bent @a57se 

I rarely talk about it the day after it is on. If you are so keen then you should know that it could have been one of three characters......Stannis, Greyjoy or Joffrey.


Bent

@a57se @Bent  


Because it was on last night and you always talk about it the day after it's on.


I read the comment (remember I have to read every comment, so it's not like I can hide away for 24 hours and avoid seeing the comments) and since it obviously wasn't referring to the Jets or anything else in the post, it was obviously going to be about that.  And it's not like you were ambiguous about what happened.

a57se

@Bent @a57se 

Oh, you sound like a little girl...........gimme a break.

Why would you assume it was Joffrey and the show I was referring to in the first place?


Bent
Bent moderator

@a57se @Bent  Or you could have not said anything.  How about that?  What possible outcome could there be from that comment other than people seeing it and knowing what it was?  Or other people asking about and discussing what it was to make it all the more obvious.


Not even a trace of regret or remorse from you for ruining my night?  If I accidentally caused that even for one person (and even if it wasn't a situation where I should have known better), I'd at least be apologetic.  You're blaming me for spoiling my own night by being too sharp?  Come on, man.


I forgive you.  Just don't do it again or I'll chop your head off.

@Bent @a57se 

You should have kept it to yourself because it probably was NOT blatantly obvious to anyone else......I don't see it as that as there was no inkling to what would happen anywhere else. You made the leap and decided everyone must be as sharp as you are........not the case, Bent.

Bent
Bent moderator

@a57se @Bent  No, I hadn't seen the show because it didn't air over here until just now (and no, I haven't read the books either).  However, it was blatantly obvious from your comment what you would be referring to, as confirmed by what just happened in the show.


So, yes, I just watched the whole thing knowing what was coming and my enjoyment was ruined as a result and I'm sure I'm not the only one.  Pretending otherwise didn't help.


Please be more considerate next time.

@Bent

The only way you would equate my comment to a certain show and/or character was if you had ALREADY seen the show or knew in advance what might happen.

If that was the case, then YOU should have had the sense to keep your mouth shut or replied like Randy Marsh who obviously DID have the sense to know better.

Bent
Bent moderator

@a57se @Gavin Buck  Right, because you never make non-sequitur references to that particular show, so nobody would ever make that connection.


I would have respected and appreciated "I'm sorry, my mistake, I won't do it again" a lot more.

You and others brought up a certain television show and mentioned certain characters, NOT I.......I didn't ruin anything.

@a57se @MarshRandy  It doesn't air until Monday night in the UK and elsewhere around the world so most people don't get the option to DVR it.  Still we only get around 5,000 non-US readers a day so it's probably only hundreds of people whose evening you've ruined.

@Wilkershakes @a57seHe wont fall out of the first rd or top 15, media hype & need for drama is driving that. Anybody who watched him play knows that's a bad bad man!!

Wilkershakes

@a57se @Wilkershakes   I've read that too, but I wonder if that really drops him out of the first round.  He was considered the 'safest' or most 'pro-ready' at the end of season.

He always wears gloves in games. He didn't wear gloves at his Pro Day.

@a57se @WilkershakesI'm still very interested in Zach Mettenburger (although there are a few others). It's a good idea for us to keep drafting a prototype QB every May until we strike gold...
