Why Sam Darnold is Not the Answer for the Jets

Reading Time: 2 minutes Sam Darnold is not the answer for the Jets.The goal of every single NFL team is to win a Super Bowl, and if that’s not possible, at least be a consistent playoff team.With Darnold, I believe it is possible for the second to maybe be reached however, I don’t believe that the first is possible.This isn’t really a knock on Darnold but more Jets former GM Mike Maccagnan, and Jets leadership for not firing him soon enough.The last six quarterbacks to lead their teams to the Super Bowl have been Patrick Mahomes, Jimmy Garoppolo, Jared...

Why Russell Wilson will Hold Back the Seahawks

Reading Time: 2 minutes Jamal Adams is the best safety in football. He can stop the run like nobody else, and brought emotional motivation to a Jets team which, seemed lost at times during the season. Yet, by trading Adams away, the Jets are in a better position than the team that traded for him. New York has four first round picks over the next two years, a quarterback on a cheap rookie contract, as well as young talent around the roster. Meanwhile, Jamal Adams finds himself on a team convinced they are ready for a Super Bowl run,...

Why Jamal Adams is the Missing Piece for the Seahawks

Reading Time: 2 minutes Just a few hours ago a monster trade went down between the New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks with the Jets sending Jamal Adams and a fourth-rounder to the Seahawks in exchange for 2 first-round picks and a 2021 3rd.The Seahawks have one of the best quarterbacks in the game with Russell Wilson and the lack of a great supporting cast around him has really been the only issue. The offense has been dominant for the most part with the great weapons and punishing running game that Seattle has. The defense, however, has been holding...

Jamal Adams Blockbuster: Analysis from Both Sides

Reading Time: 2 minutesWell, Jamal Adams had his wish come true. The All-Pro safety, formerly a member of the New York Jets, has a new team. He has been traded to the Seattle Seahawks for Bradley McDougald, a first-round pick in 2021, a third-round pick in 2021, and another first-round pick in 2022. The Seahawks also receive a fourth-round pick. Here are my thoughts on the trade for both sides. From Seattle’s perspective, they get an absolute game-changer on defense. Jamal Adams is the best safety in the league, and fills a need for Seattle in the secondary. Seattle’s secondary was roasted by Davante Adams in the playoffs last year, and even though Adams is not a cover corner, he will make QBs think twice about throwing it on his side of the field. Also, considering the Seahawks first-round picks would probably be late first anyway, they gave it up for one of the best defenders in football. This almost certainly cements their case as Super Bowl contenders. The Jets also did an amazing job with this trade. First of all, they traded Adams out of their conference which was an incredibly smart move. Secondly, they got a HAUL for him. Two first-rounders, plus a third-rounder? They are set up nicely for the future to trade for a star, or stand pat and build for the future. Furthermore, they...

Breaking Down Joe Douglas’ First Free Agency and the Jets Offensive Line Rebuild

Reading Time: 2 minutesThe hiring of Joe Douglas as the next general manager of the New York Jets in the summer of 2019 provided desperate fans with the hope of a brighter future. This past off-season’s free agency was the first major test to the Jets’ new front office. While the team was thin at cornerback and lacked a solid edge rusher, their main issue centered around their atrocious offensive line.  In 2019, the Jets quarterbacks got sacked an average of 3.2 times a game and 52 times overall which was 29th in the NFL, only less than the...
