Rex attends Orange Bowl

Rex was at the Orange Bowl this week, supporting his son’s team the Clemson Tigers who won 40-35 over Ohio State.

Here’s Rex decked out in Clemson Orange with a fan.

Some more advanced scouting on standout Sammy Watkins?  :D

After a performance like that, one has to think that Watkins won’t make it out of the top ten …

If we take care of the secondary and TE in FA all we would need in the draft is a top wideout. I would be willing to trade up for Watkins only if we take care of those needs in FA

I took the Chiefs +2.5 on Thursday. Just now, I took Indi +1.5. If Indi wins by 2 or less or if KC wins by 1, I win both sides. Have never had this situation before.

I know Cold, Hard Football Facts isn't too highly praised here, but the data around first round WR's producing very few more wins (even if the stats are there) seems legit to me.  Anyone more into the idea of getting a pass-catching TE (dudes from Texas Tech and UNC) and looking at WR's after Round 1?

Watkins is the only player I'd be cool with trading up for.

Rex does not care, most of his coaches have no contracts and he is going away to watch his son not play in a Bowl game

Who said Rex doesn't care about offense!?

No clue. I didn't expect to hear his name come up for the job. But it wouldn't surprise me. Penn St. has more of a tradition for defense and Golden is supposed to be a defensive minded coach. They also have an elite young QB who will only be a sophomore. Pretty good situation to go to.

two 50 yd TDs... Houston isn't making it too difficult though.  Krause might be a smart UDFA... excellent returner and has decent hands.  Much faster than the listed 4.6 forty.

@a57se 

After he scored 6 TDs and had 500 total yards against the Ohio St. D? 

Yeah, only a dumb person would be impressed by that performance.

@a57se I'll pass but he does have an impressive skillset. Don't see him being a good pro though, too inconsistent

@MarshRandy Dude looks like the real deal.  That catch where he high pointed the ball in the end zone was a thing of beauty.

@Brendan  Rex's first thought when he looks at Watkins is he could turn him into Ed Reed in centerfield.

Its being reported that PSU had interest in Golden, Mike Munchek, and Vandy's Franklin. Golden's an alum. I would assume Munchek is as well, or has some tie to the school. And a lot of teams are interested in Franklin, pro and college.

@juunit

Hey, I'm just asking a question....does the WR make the QB in Boyds' case or is Boyd the real deal despite Watkins? 

That INT near the end of the game could have lost the game for Clemson......if that had happened, don't you think Boyd would be facing heavy criticism right now? Look at the heat Tony Romo took after the Denver game......

@Bent@juunit 

I'm assuming he was on the field level. And orange does kind of blend in at that stadium.

@Brendan @jaym Yeah, this is clearly an F U to his players.


Come on Brendan, you forgot about Rex going to Clemson on "the second most important day of the season"?

Schiano would be a good hire for some school IMO

@davem 

I'd heard Schiano mentioned for it, I think he's an alum. Didn't think that'd be a good fit though. Schiano might have a hard time getting a job anywhere.

@jaygo @a57se ARBITRAGE.  Then you can't lose and if the Saints win by exactly three you win twice as much money.

@a57se@juunit 

Maybe he would take heat for it, but any game where the offense takes heat after scoring 40 points is misplaced. Boyd set the record for total yards in the Orange Bowl last night.

As far the weapons argument, Peyton Manning had Harrison and Wayne. In his best season, Brady had Randy Moss. Brees has Graham now. The best QBs also have the best receivers, except Rodgers. Boyd played very well in 2012 when Watkins was off. So it's not just Watkins. And even if you'd removed Watkins from the game completely last night, Boyd would still have 300 yards and 4 TDs.

@a57se @MarshRandy I guess. I'm personally enjoying the optimism heading into the offseason after winning the last couple games

Well some people think the Rex decision was made weeks ago, so if that was the case, it would not have mattered.

@a57se yep but who knows, if they end up 6-10 maybe we lose Rex and have to rehaul the entire team with a new coach

@bklyndude@MarshRandy 

Watkins was the reason I wanted the Jets to end up 6-10.....they would have the 9th pick and a really good chance to trade up and get Sammy or, if they wanted , one of the top QB's.......

They have no shot at those guys now.
