Preseason Week 2: Packers vs Steelers Stock Report

image

Final Score: Steelers 24-19

Stock down: WR Jordy Nelson
Yikes. Jordy Nelson has reportedly torn his ACL, which is a blow to the Packers. He was Rodgers favorite target, and now him out for the year, receiver’s  Randall Cobb, Davante Adams, Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis will need to pick up the slack.

Stock up: Packers running game
The duo of running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks looked just dominant. Granted the offensive line blocked great, but the running game will probably be even more vital due to Jordy Nelson’s injury.

Stock down: OT Don Barclay
Oh my. Don Barclay looked just horrible, like real horrible. He gave up the only safety, and was being thrown around by second string defensive linemen. SECOND STRING!! David Bakhtiari needs to return, Aaron Rodgers heath depends on it.

Stock up: FB Aaron Ripkowski
This guy is a stud. The 6th round rookie had a pair of special teams tackles and had some good blocks late in the game. With this showing, Aaron Ripkowski will likely make the team.

Stock down: CB Quinten Rollins
After looking excellent against New England, Quinten Rollins looked the oppisite today. He was burned by Steeles rookie WR Sammie Coates for a 52 yard pass and looked lost.

Other observations
– QB Scott Tolzein looked good, but was injured. QB Brent Hundley was okay, but took a step back.
– RB Rajion Neal looked capable, and will probably be the 3rd running back on the roster.
– WR Jeff Janis flashed but had his share of hiccups.
– TE Richard Rodgers has hands of glue. It’s pretty certain he will be the starter.
– RG T.J Lang was injured, but nothing concerning like Jordy’s.
– DE Datone Jones again looked good…hopefully he can in a actual game.
– OLB Jayrone Elliot continues to dominate.
– CB Damorius Randall looked excellent, grabbing a interception. But of course, was injured due to dehydration.
– CB Ladarius Gunter is a stud. He knocked away two potential touchdown passes. He needs more playing time

Preseason Week 1: Steelers vs Jaguars, Stock Report

image

Final Score: Jaguars 23-21

Stock up: QB Blake Bortles

Bortles, who struggled as a rookie last year, worked on his mechanics this offseason. It showed against Pittsburgh, completing 11 out of 15 passes for 118 yards and had a rushing Touchdown. His stats would be more impressive, but 3 of his incompletions were dropped passes that should have been caught. It’s a good start, and a good sign for Blake Bortles

Stock down: CB Davon House

Remember how many including myself thought the Jaguars overpaid for Davon House? This showed why. Steelers WR Martvaris Bryant burned House for a 44 yard touchdown. It was a horrible start for Davon House.

Stock up: RB Denard Robinson

Denard looked like he did last midseason, gaining 22 yards on 4 carries and a 34 yard kick return. Expected to take the field, on 3rd downs, this year, if Denard can up the good work, the running game could be dangerous this year.

Stock down: LT Luke Joeckel

Granted it was one play, but Joeckel was getting beat by OLB James Harrison, who is almost twice the age that Joeckel is. Joeckel is expected to be decent but he looked horrible which isn’t encouraging. If the former 2nd overall pick, continues to struggle, the Jaguars might have to look elsewhere.

Stock up: DE Cap Capi

Who? An undrafted rookie from Akron, Cap recorded both of the teams two sacks, and stood out from the defensive line, which struggled without 3 out of 4 regular starters. Keep on eye on Cap.

Other observations
– Backup QB Chad Henne played extremely well, but 3rd string QB Stephen Morris struggled.
– RB Bernard Pierce and RB Toby Gerhart had a fair share of good runs. RB Storm Johnson didn’t perform well and might not make the 53 man roster.
– WR Allen Robinson looked great, while 5th round rookie WR Rashad Greene had a 37 yard punt return.
– One receiver who has surprised many is journeymen Arrelious Benn. A former 2010 2nd round draft choice from Tampa Bay has struggled with injures in his 5 season career. Arrelious had a 27 yard reception against Pittsburgh and might make the team.
– TE Julius Thomas got hurt after a 2 yard catch and is out for the preseason. Thomas has struggled with injures and needs to stay heathy.
– SS Jonathan Cyprien was injured as well, and is out for the preseason. Cyprien didn’t perform well before the injury.

Preseason Week 1: Packers vs Patriots, Stock Report

image

Final Score: Packers 22-11

Stock up: 2015 Packers Rookie Class

Even though 1st round rookie CB Damorius Randall didn’t play, most of the rookies looked really good. Undrafted rookie CB Ladarius Gunter showed why people are excited, intercepting QB Jimmy Garoppolo and playing good coverage. 2nd round rookie CB Quintin Rollins almost had an interception and had several pass breakups. 3rd round rookie WR Ty Montgomery caught 2 passes for 28 yards. 4th round rookie MLB Jake Ryan had 6 tackles, 2 for loss and a sack. 5th round QB Brett Hundley completed 4 out 6 passes with a TD. 6th round TE Kennard Backman caught 2 passes for 10 yards.

Stock down: FS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

While he didn’t play horribly, Clinton-Dix whiffed a tackle which Patriots RB Jonas Gray scored a long touchdown. Clinton-Dix looked lost in coverage as well. Nothing overly concerning.

Stock up: WR Jeff Janis

For a guy who didn’t impress in training camp, Jeff Janis looked pretty good last night. Janis caught 2 passes for 31 yards and a touchdown. Janis beat the jam of Patriots CB Logan Ryan (Who is expected to replace CB Darrelle Revis) for a Jordy Nelson style catch. Hopefully Janis will stay consistent.

Stock down: LT David Bakhtiari

For a guy who had a good season, Bakhtiari struggled last night. He was beat a couple times and allowed a sack from Patriots 4th round rookie DE Trey Flowers. That’s unexceptable for a veteran to beat by a rookie.

Stock up: DE Datone Jones

Datone Jones showed signs of life, after disappointing last year and having a one game suspension, Datone Jones bounced back for 2 tackles for loss and 2 sacks. If he can break out this year, he could be the missing piece for the defensive line.

Other observations
– QB Scott Tolzein looked impressive last night, which is very encouraging.
– TE Andrew Quarless and WR Davante Adams were targeted quite a bit, but both dropped easy catches.
– DE Khyri Thornton had a pressure, but other then that, seems like a lost cause.
– OLB Jayrone Elliot played really well, as did OLB Andy Mulumba, OLB Adrian Hubbard and MLB Carl Bradfield.

The NFL has lost integrity with the Tom Brady suspension

PPP

Wow I thought Roger Goodell was a idiot, now I think he is a man with no brain.

I love the NFL, that won’t change but this decision made by Roger Goodell with Tom Brady disgusts me. Look at the logic here: breaking the law, and beating up woman is okay but destroying your cell phone? That is criminal! Man are you serious? He gives Letroy Guion a 3 game suspension for selling cocaine. He gave Ray Rice a 2 game suspension for smacking his wife before extending it to avoid more public outcry. He gives Tom Brady a 4 game suspension, no actually solid evidence, for deflating a football. Isn’t there something wrong here? I understand he is the commissioner, the NFL is a billion dollar business, yes I get it. But he has to make decisions that MAKE SENSE. I don’t understand why there isn’t more public outcry about this. We have a commissioner here who values are as good as the Kardashians modeling naked pictures for the world to see. Really, just because Tom Brady has won 4 Super Bowls doesn’t mean he is any different then his peers. Heck, he probably views Aaron Hernandez better than Tom Brady. This is a mess which Roger Goodell refuses to clean up.

NFL Opinion: With Guion suspension, the suspension for Tom Brady needs to be dropped.

image

For the integrity of the NFL, the Deflategate crap needs to end. Here is why. First of all, suspending a player with no solid evidence is ridiculous. Second of all, if you are saying that Tom Brady allegedly deflating footballs is worse then Letroy Guion BREAKING the LAW, then you are simply a nut. Thrid, this could have never started. If Rodger Goddell simply denounced the Deflategate allegations, none of this would have happened. Now it’s costing the NFL with bad publicly, millions of dollars, and unfair allegations towards a future hall of famer and a successful franchise. If the suspension for Tom Brady stands, then Rodger Goddell will be the closet person to communism then any other sports figure. The “enforcer” and the NFL, will lose its integrity.

Jacksonville Jaguars: My expectations

image

David Caldwell has brought the franchise to his image, now it’s time for progress.

When David Caldwell became general manager after the 2012 season, where the Jaguars officially became the laughing stock of the NFL, he had some work to do

Head Coach?
Check
Franchise Quarterback?
Check
Draft Classes?
Check
Free Agents?
Check

I expect improvement in one category: wins. The Jaguars have finished 7-25, the past two years under Caldwell and Head Coach Gus Bradley. Taking over from Gene Smith, Mike Murakley and Blaine Gabbert, he even publicly stated, that it would be needed time for a foundation. Okay understandable but I have waited for two years, I have seen glimpses of potential. The beatdown of Cleveland, the comeback against Coughlin’s Giants, were highlights, but a 3-13 record won’t spark any inspiration. Honestly expecting a 6-10 record next year isn’t exactly asking too much. Anything lower than that at this point is unacceptable. And it that happens I want a redo, a rebuild…..again.

2015 NFL Offseason Grades

Best Moves

1. Buffalo acquires RB LeSean McCoy
A lot of people question this move, I honestly think this is a steal. Getting a former All-Pro Running back for a player who didn’t play last year is simply unfair. The Bills have depth that Kiko Alonso is no longer needed. LeSean, already the Eagles all time rusher, is under 30 years and has plenty left in the tank.

2. Arizona signs G Mike Iupati
Why the 49ers used money to sign Torrey Smith instead of resigning Mike Iupati is beyond my reasoning. Mike, a All-Pro guard in his prime, upgrades the Cardinals o – line incredibly, and gives the Cardinals a stellar left side with Jared Veldheer.

3. Green Bay retains WR Randall Cobb and T Byran Bulaga
Resigning both these, in their prime young players to 4 year deals is simply mind blowing. This is why Green Bay continues to dominate, it retains its own players instead of gambling for a different option

4. Houston signs DT Vince Wilfork
Pairing Vince Wilfork with JJ Watt will give offensive linemen nightmires. Vince is old, however is still one of the best run stuffing tackles in the league. Yikes

5. San Diego signs G/OT Orlando Franklin
San Diego needs interior o – line help, Orlando Franklin is a great fix. A top 10 guard, Orlando protected Tebow and Manning, and is also a stud right tackle. Orlando gives Philip Rivers a huge boost.

6. Miami signs WR Greg Jennings
Greg Jennings isn’t a No.1 receiver, but he is a stellar No.2 option. He is a good route runner and a upgrade over Brian Hartline. Only paying 4 million is quite the steal.

7. Cleveland signs DT Randy Starks
While a older player, Randy is still a top 12 defensive tackle, plus he is a good 3-4 end for the Cleveland defense. Randy is a good pickup.

8. New England signs TE Scott Chandler
This is a great value signing, while Scott isn’t a great T.E, he was a solid starter in Buffalo and gives New England amazing depth, now the Pats have 3 tight ends who can start on other teams.

9. Washington signs DT Terrance Knighton
While the Redskins didn’t absolutely  need him, I was studded he wasn’t getting any interest and signing him 3 million is as big as a bargain as you can get.

10. N.Y Jets get WR Brandon Marshall
Marshall is a headache but his talent is incredible. He is a match up nightmire for any defensive back, while he is older he is definitely worth more than a 5th round pick.

Worst moves

1. Cleveland signs QB Josh McCown
Signing a 35 year old who had a 1-10 season record last year 5.5 million a year was so laughable I had to check the Onion to see if this was a prank. Enough said.

2. Philadelphia signs CB Byron Maxwell Signing Maxwell to 5 million a year would be acceptable, but 10 million? Are you serious? The guy had 3 All-Pro defensive backs around him, and even then he was average. Now he is expected to cover Dez Bryant, Odell Beckham and DeSean Jackson? This move is plain silly.

3. San Francisco fires Head Coach Jim Harbaugh
This is no mutual department, Harbaugh was fired because he wasn’t a favorite of GM Trent Baalke. I truely think Trent Baalke is a bad GM. How do you fire a guy who took over a mediocre team and turned them a play away from becoming Super Bowl Champions? The 49ers will definitely fall back into mediocrity.

4. N.Y Giants sign WR Dwayne Harris
How in hell do you pay a player 5 million who sucks as a receiver and is a mediocre special teamer? What sense does that make? Greg Jennings got paid less then him. GM Jerry Reese makes some confusing transactions.

5. Cleveland signs CB Tramon Williams
Now, Tramon isn’t a bad player but he sure isn’t worth 7 million a year. He is also 33 so he will worsen. He was a okay No.2 option, you don’t pay a aging average corner that much.

6. Denver receives C Gino Gradkowski in a trade
Seriously, you expect Gino to be any better than Will Montgomery? Gino was awful as a starter for Baltimore in 2013, he is a okay backup, trading a 5th round pick for him is honestly a bad joke.

7. N.Y Giants sign OT Marshall Newhouse
The fact that he was signed is a embarrassment, Marshall has never been anything but below average. He has always been a liability. So why sign him?

8. Oakland signs S Nate Allen
Why pay 6 million for a mediocre safety when you already had Tyvon Branch? Yes Branch was hurt but Philadelphia didn’t want Nate back for a reason. Branch got 3 million in Kansas City so it’s a matter of value signing, and Oakland definitely overspent.

9. Jacksonville signs CB Davon House
Now Davon has always been a high potential player but paying him 6 million is ridiculous. He has never been a full time starter and has upside, but he is worth at maximum, 3 million.

10. Dallas signs DE Greg Hardy
When you sign a player 10 million, he better play at least half the season. Oh yeah, wife beater is suspended 10 games. Smart move Jerry Jones
