What Steelers Ugly Loss says about Future of 2014 season? posted by Steelers Fan

The Steelers had looked like the unstoppable team in the AFC. With Roethlisberger setting passing records and the defense shutting down every offense it faced.

However, when the Steelers faced off against the one win New York Jets Sunday, what Steeler team showed up was a far cry from the dominating presence that had been there for the last several games.

While one loss or one win doesn’t usually say much about the future of a team’s season, when a first place team loses to a one loss team, AND loses to that one loss team in a humiliating, demoralizing way, then there is cause for concern.

From the start of the game, the Jets ran the ball all over the Steelers D, going up 10-0 early in the game, but instead of rallying the Steelers had their next 3 drives end with turnovers. Hardly a display of urgency on a part of the offense, as they went into the half only scoring 3 points.

In the second half, Roethlisberger was picked off again, one of 4 Steeler turnovers on the day. While the stats look good on paper, it was the complete lack of urgency from the Steelers' offense. The no-huddle, which has paid major dividends in the last three weeks and the last two in particular, didn't make an appearance until the final minutes of the game. 

To watch the Steelers on Sunday against the Jets, one would not believe this was a team tied for first place.

They played down to an inferior opponent. They abandoned everything that worked on offense. Losing to a one-win team isn't going to help convince anyone that the Steelers are truly legitimate threats to reach the playoffs, let alone win a Super Bowl. This was a major step back that the Steelers should not have made.

GENO SMITH BACK TO FULL STRENGTH TO BACK UP VICK. posted by Jets Fan

Reports coming from the Jets organization is that Geno Smith has healed his shoulder enough to suit up as Michael Vick’s backup as the Jets look to take on the Steelers Sunday.

Smith had been sidelined for the past few games, forcing Vick into the starting role, for the second week in a row.

Geno Smith being healthy is very good news for the Jets as they need all the help they can get to get past their 1-8 start, despite his substandard performance earlier this season.

With Vick’s scramble heavy playing style, this will lead to the inevitable injury that keep Vick sidelined, and the Jets will need Smith as 3rd stringer Simms has not proven to be a viable option for the Jets as he only recorded 11 snaps when Vick got knocked out of play and had to go to the locker room as part of the NFL’s concussion protocol.

The role of backup quarterback is a new hat for Smith to wear as he has not been a backup since his early days at West Virginia. Perhaps seeing the game from the sidelines will help Geno Smith improve his defensive recognition as Smith has not been stellar so far this season.

So far on the season, Smith has thrown for seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions, yet 3 of those game during a one game sloppy performance against Buffalo.

Whether Vick or Smith ends up being the long-term starter for the Jets, they need to find answers quick as Rex Ryan is on the hot seat as nothing has seemed to work in the past few seasons for the Jets.

And Smith. The second-year quarterback has gone from the future of the franchise to a question mark during a bad season.

The 2014 New York Jets posted by Jets Fan

The Jets finished last year’s campaign with an 8-8 record but they’ll have problems matching that performance. Starter Geno Smith is inconsistent, and the quarterback will likely not last long as the starter.

The team did sign former Philadelphia wide receiver Eric Decker but he’s been a turnover machine throughout his career. He is also known for quitting on his teams when things don’t go as planned. Worse, he was the recipient of a massive $36.25 million deal over five years. 

The other big name signing was running back Chris Johnson, one of the most overrated players in the league. More importantly, he’s coming off an injury. He’ll partner with Chris Ivory who had 4.6 yards per carry last year. 

The Jets’ offensive line will once again be the foundation of its offense. Left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson is back after starting 16 games for the eight consecutive year. But he’s coming off an off-year and he’s turning 31 this year. Still, look for him to rebound. He’ll start across new acquisition Breno Giacomini who came from the Seahawks.

The Jets will need left guard Brian Winters to rebound from a poor 2014 season which had him surrendering 10 sacks. Rookie Dakota Dozier may even beat him out for the slot, and join right guard Willie Colon and center Nick Mangold.  Colon’s durability is a question mark as he has had four surgeries in the past four seasons.

The Jets have one of the weakest defenses in the entire league. The secondary is especially a mess.  Expected to start are Dimitri Patterson and Dee Milliner at the corner.  The latter was a top 10 pick in the 2013 Draft but has struggled since then.

2013 NFL Draft: Rounds Two - Seven Recap posted by Joe Anello

It was an eventful and unpredictable NFL Draft, even after the craziness that ensued in round one Thursday night. Friday night showcased rounds two and three, while Sunday wrapped up the draft with rounds four through seven. Let’s run through the major storylines that came out of the 2013 NFL Draft!

*Pardon for the delay. This is what happens when life throws the draft, C2E2, and the impetus to change jobs all in one weekend.

 

-After slipping through the first round despite several reported landing spots, Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o became a San Diego Charger. The Chargers traded picks 45 and 110 to the Cardinals for pick number 38, allowing them to move up for Te’o. At that point in the draft, the drama-laden linebacker had great value. The Chargers run a 3-4 scheme, but he can still be a valuable inside presence for them.

 

-On the very next pick after Te’o was selected, the New York Jets saw a “franchise” quarterback fall right into their laps at number 39 overall with Geno Smith. Smith increases the QB count on the Jets roster all the way up to six, which includes Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, Greg McElroy, and David Garrard. Yeah… someone’s gonna get cut. The obvious cut is Tebow. But then who? Do you cut the veteran Garrard, whom you just brought in? Or do you take the massive cap hit and release Sanchez? Or are you giving up on the idea that McElroy can be anything? The drama is ratcheted up in New York, and I’m gonna love every minute of it.

2013 NFL Draft Preview: Round One posted by Joe Anello

Okay hardcore NFL fans and semi-amateur talent evaluators (AKA drunken college football fans), the event you love and adore is here! The time when college players are selected to be a part of pro teams and championships are declared won and lost based on sheer potential before the young players ever even suit up. It’s the NFL Draft, and it’s one of my favorite weekends of the year. As it was designed last season, the Draft now takes place over three days, with the first round coming on Thursday night, rounds two and three follow on Friday night, with rounds four through seven spanning across Saturday. Let’s get to some of the top stories coming out of round one! (And forgive the bad sub-headers. I’m in the mood for terrible jokes.)

She’s Not Exactly “Top-Heavy”

The talent apparently lies after the first round in the 2013 Draft, as experts have been talking up the “depth” of this class. What does that mean to you? It means this is sort of a weak draft at the top. There’s nary a running back worth a first round selection, save perhaps Alabama’s Eddie Lacy. Game-breaking receivers are not to be found outside of Tavon Austin out of West Virginia. A tight end will show up, but otherwise this might be as boring of a first round (from a skill position standpoint) as we’ve seen in the past decade. Honestly. Get ready to see o-linemen, linebackers, safeties, and d-linemen aplenty. If you’re looking for SEXY DIVA SUPERSTARS, this ain’t the first round for you.

Revis Finally Traded to the Buccaneers posted by Joe Anello

After months (years?) of back-and-forth chatter and negotiations, the New York Jets and cornerback Darelle Revis have finally parted ways. The Jets sent Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for the Bucs’ first round pick (thirteenth overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft and a conditional pick in the 2014 Draft. The condition being that if Revis is on the Bucs’ 2014 roster on day 3 of the league year, it changes from a fourth round pick to a third rounder. With the completion of the deal came a new contract for Revis, a 6-year, $96 million contract with apparently no guaranteed money. Let’s get into the specifics and see how each team, as well as the player, made out in this deal.

 

The Deal for the Jets

The Jets get the first round pick they’ve always wanted thanks to this deal. This gives them picks nine and thirteen overall, allowing them to add two impact players on day one of the draft. It also lets them shed any obligation to Revis in 2014, freeing up $12 million in cap space. That will allow them to be actual players in free agency, as opposed to the sideline sitters they’ve been in recent years. They also get rid of the constant headache that Revis and his negotiating tactics presented. Obviously his impact on the field will be felt, but Antonio Cromartie and Kyle Wilson are not a terrible tandem to fill the void. (Obviously they could consider a corner with their picks, but I don’t think anyone worth those picks will be there.) This is a step for a franchise in transition, clearing room to make changes under a new general manager. But not getting the Bucs’ first, third, and fifth round picks in 2013 (which was initially the rumored deal) feels like a loss. The Jets could have used those picks immediately.

Black Monday 2012: The Aftermath posted by Joe Anello

Black Monday was billed to be one of the worst/busiest in the NFL’s history, and it certainly lived up to that hype on the eve of the New Year. A whopping seven head coaches were fired on Monday, with a few fates to be possibly determined at a later date. Included in the dismissals were a number of general managers. Let’s wrap around the league!

Philadelphia Eagles fire HC Andy Reid

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie made a difficult decision in letting go his franchise’s winningest head coach, but it was the right one. Reid’s message had been lost in the later of his 14 years on the job. He’s still a fantastic head coach, but it was time for everyone to move. Reid could land somewhere like Arizona, but we’ve already heard that San Diego won’t be interested. Philly sounds like its leaning towards a coach with legitimate experience that can come in and quickly turn things around. This firing was probably a year too late, to be fair.

Chicago Bears fire HC Lovie Smith

Check back for an in-depth analysis of this coaching move. 

San Diego Chargers fire GM A.J. Smith and HC Norv Turner

Speaking of firings a year too late, this pair of “winners” shouldn’t have been allowed to be on the San Diego staff for 2012. Turner’s already being mentioned as a possible OC for a number of openings, the most notable of which is in NY for the Jets. But he’s likely rebuffed them already, per the Jets’ usual. Smith was a volatile front office guy, something that should have gotten him canned years ago. He let most of this team’s “immense talent” fall by the wayside or leave via free agency.

The Opening Drive: Week 16, 2012 posted by Joe Anello

Week 16 in the NFL season has arrived! With two weeks left in the season, I don’t need to tell you how important these games are for those teams still in the hunt. It’s time to get into all the storylines in The Opening Drive!

(12-2) Atlanta Falcons at

(4-10) Detroit Lions

Saturday night football has arrived! And it’s… relatively meaningless. The Falcons are very close to locking down their one seed (only need one win) and the Lions could be another embarrassing loss away from blowing things up. This could be an entertaining (but non-competitive) contest to open the week.

(6-8) New Orleans Saints at

(8-6) Dallas Cowboys

I’ve already seen a LOT of coverage for this game, which only features one possible playoff participant. The Cowboys can win the division if they win their final two games, and that starts with an interesting match-up against the Saints. Drew Brees won’t take it light on a Dallas secondary that has been hit-or-miss this year. But I think the Saint defense won’t play as well as it appeared to last week versus the Bucs.

(5-9) San Diego Chargers at

(6-8) New York Jets

Wait. There has to be a reason I put this game on the list. THE GREG MCELROY ERA HAS BEGUN! But honestly, I don’t know if any of the Jets’ quarterbacks will be on the roster next season. And the Chargers? They’re a train wreck. AND I LOVE IT.

The Final Drive: Week 13, 2012 posted by Joe Anello

Week 13 of the NFL put a lot of races in the proper perspective. Teams began to clinch playoff spots/division titles and can now aim for loftier goals. Other teams had their struggles, including one squad that faced the unimaginable. It’s time for The Final Drive.

(11-1) Atlanta Falcons 23

(5-7) New Orleans Saints 13

Can we all just stop thinking the Saints are making the playoffs? Because it’s REALLY not happening. This may not have been the throat-stomping win for Atlanta that everyone wanted, but it was a solid victory that can only build on their confidence as they streak toward the number one seed in the NFC.

 

(8-4) Indianapolis Colts 35

(4-8) Detroit Lions 33

Luck does it again. I’m not a huge fan of all the interceptions he’s thrown, but he’s brought his team back all year long and has them primed for a playoff spot. It’s extraordinarily impressive. And he’s just going to get better. For Detroit, this is just another crushing loss in a season of disappointments. Put them out of their misery.

(8-4) Green Bay Packers 23

(6-6) Minnesota Vikings 14

Even when Adrian Peterson goes off for 210 yards on only 21 carries, Aaron Rodgers refuses to let his team lose. It’s pretty stunning what he can do sometimes. The Packers dominated time of possession, keeping Peterson on the sideline for almost two-thirds of the game. That’s the way to win.

The Opening Drive: Week 13, 2012 posted by Joe Anello

A week removed from the holiday and metric ton of food you ate, week 13 in the NFL season has arrived! This schedule feature’s a rematch of… unique proportions as well as what could be the best Thursday nighter of the year. It’s time to kick-off The Opening Drive!

 

(5-6) New Orleans Saints at

(10-1) Atlanta Falcons

Well look at what we have here. The NFL Network might actually have a decent game for us this week. The Saints are the only team to have beaten the Falcons this year and have taken them down in 11 of their last 13 meetings. If Atlanta is going to be taken seriously, they have to snuff out this division rival and get a solid primetime win. (Because that Eagles win is looking really soft now.) I love the offenses in this game, so this should be really fun to watch.

(7-4) Indianapolis Colts at

(4-7) Detroit Lions

Here’s a prime example of an overachiever versus an underachiever. The Colts have succeeded in spite of their mediocre defense and lack of experience with this offense. Meanwhile the Lions have struggled despite their highly talented d-line and offensive skill position players. In a dome, the Colts should be able to keep pace with Detroit and hang around for a Luck game-winning drive. (Because we all know he’s going to pull out the W. He’s that good already.)

(6-5) Minnesota Vikings at

(7-4) Green Bay Packers
