Re: Around the NFL Week 5

Yeah since the Jets got rid of the dumbasses on the field and organization (GM, O-Cor, Sanchez) they've played a ton better. Rex doing a good job. Addition by subtraction folks.

Re: Around the NFL Week 5

Geno looked good last night but lets not forget he's having a rough year so far. I do like the jets fight and that D is legit

Re: Around the NFL Week 5

Are Jadeveon Clowney's actions caused by agent whispers? - NFL.com

I have a big feeling this guy is going to be a huge bust.

I agree

Re: Around the NFL Week 5

Totally agree on Clowney. He has nothing to gain by playing. NFL execs have pretty much said he's not hurting his draft stock at all.

Jets have beaten the bucs, bills, and falcons(who are obviously not as good as we all thought).
They have really only played one pretty good team - the Titans- and got blown out.
Smith is definitely making strides, but this is a six win team at best.

I think a man quitting on his team is a huge sign of character issues. Huge. Also, he wasn't doing all that great at the start of this year. I would not want a guy who's going to quit on his teammates when it benefited him. Remember Carlos Rogers? Well, that's exactly what he did his contract year. Stayed out of games he could have played in (and was cleared) so he wouldn't get hurt.

Also, read the article I posted. You are hearing whispers from scouts about his dedication to the game. I'd say it is hurting his stock.

Re: Around the NFL Week 5

NFL execs: No one cares Jadeveon Clowney is hurt, draft stock is fine

"Nah, no one will care," an executive in personnel for an NFL team told USA TODAY Sports on Sunday. "If he's healthy, works out well and most importantly interviews well, it won't hurt him."

Probably rite, but why come back at all if you are going to be that cautious. Sort of a dick move to the school, staff, and his teammates.
He may not really be hurting his draft stock, but he is certainly not helping it.

No source? Just one guy? C'mon man. You would be a complete idiot not to ding him on a character issue if the man quit on his teammates. You don't think he'll quit on you at the slightest convenience? It's one thing to skip the combine or the Senior bowl. It's another to quit on your teammates mid-season.

2 execs commented and said no big deal.

Sources can't be named since they aren't allowed to comment publicly on a college player.

I think most NFL execs are smart enough to see the big picture and what's really going on with him.

Re: Around the NFL Week 5

I think the arrival of Marty Morninwheg and Ryan's trust in him is being overlooked

In his case, he should have just hired a agent at the start of the season, sit this year out and enter the draft. Why do this to your teammates? It's low class regardless of the excuse. I would have no issues with him sitting out the entire year had that been his plan from the get go.

Clowney really coudn't do that.

I understand your point. His actions hardly scream "team player" and he is left open for suspicion that he's just in it for the money.

But in terms of preparing for the NFL he is taking a rational approach which NFLers will understand.
