Jets podcast: What to watch vs. Washington
Posted On 04/04/2019 01:34:32
The Jets have their second game of the 2018 preseason tonight against the Washington Redskins in Landover White Trevor Siemian Jerseys , Maryland. This might have greater intensity than your typical preseason game as the two teams spent the week practicing against each other at the Redskins training facility in Richmond, Virginia. The practices were heated, and there were numerous scuffles.The preseason game has plenty on the line for individual Jets players in its own right. There are position and roster battles that could turn based on tonight’s results. That is the focus of today’s podcast. I never see much of a point of previewing the opponent in preseason. These games are all about what happens on the Jets side.On the show we discuss five things to watch Trevor Siemian Jerseys 2019 , including Sam Darnold, the offensive line, players looking to build on strong training camps White C.J. Mosley Jerseys , players looking to build on strong first games, and players on their last chance. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have claimed linebacker Tarell Basham off waivers from Indianapolis and waived defensive lineman Bronson Kaufusi.Basham was a third-round draft pick of the Colts out of Ohio University last year. He was waived by Indianapolis on Thursday after playing in one game this season. Basham had seven tackles C.J. Mosley Jerseys 2019 , two sacks and a forced fumble in 15 games as a rookie.Kaufusi was promoted to the active roster Monday after being signed to the practice squad last month.The Jets also released wide receiver ArDarius Stewart from the practice squad Friday with an injury settlement.The 2017 third-rounder was suspended the first two games this year for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancers. He was waived after he returned and then signed to the practice squad. He recently injured a leg during practice and was placed on practice squad-injured reserve.

A holding penalty on the third. He allowed a sack

Valentine’s Views: Thoughts on Ereck Flowers Saquon Barkley Jerseys 2019 , Eli Manning after Week 1 Ereck Flowers played an awful football game Sunday for the New York Giants. There was a tripping penalty on the first play of the season. and a team-worst 7 of the 18 pressures the Jacksonville Jaguars got in Eli Manning’s 39 drop backs on Sunday. Only two tackles allowed more pressures. Only one who played more than 50 snaps had a lower pass-blocking grade.Flowers’ overall Pro Football Focus grade was just 49.6, only 38.4 as a pass blocker. His play was bad. Anyone who watched saw that. And before you get all crazy about Giants coach Pat Shurmur defending Flowers on Monday by saying, among other things, “He had a lot of really good plays and he had a couple that he’d like to have back,” what is Shurmur supposed to do?The coach can see the film. He knows what he should, and should not, have seen better then you. Or me. Or any Twitter film critic out there. The Giants are stuck with Flowers for this season, though. He’s a Jerry Reese gift that keeps on giving. Or taking, whichever you prefer. He is in the final year of his rookie contract. He wasn’t ever going anywhere. He isn’t going anywhere now. Except back out to right tackle to try again.GM Dave Gettleman did a lot of things in the offseason. He couldn’t work a miracle and either a) find a taker for Flowers or b) make him a better player.Thing is, we know all that already. We know he wasn’t good on Sunday. Shurmur knows it. Flowers knows it. His teammates know it. The question is now whether Flowers can rebound from it, or if this was a sign of things to come.After not speaking to reporters on Sunday, Flowers did so Monday. I’m glad he did. Sunday, he left teammates to speak for, and about, him. Monday, he took responsibility.Flowers said he “did some good things, but I think there’s some things I need to work on.” He also said he is “trying to get better.”He called the pick 6 where he appeared to get beaten badly around the edge a “hard play.”“The linebacker came, I was supposed to pick him up. He came and then he left, so I stepped to get him and then I had to pop back out last minute. See what I’m saying? I had two people inside first,” Flowers said.He said he is well aware of the criticism heaped upon him from outside the building, but that “it doesn’t matter, I don’t lose sleep over it.”“I lose sleep over what these guys in my room and on this team think about me, that’s it,” he said.All of that is fine. It’s good. It’s what you would expect him to say. No one wants to be bad their job. No one wants to embarrass themselves on national TV. No one wants to hear constant criticism from the media or the Twitter bench jockeys. That isn’t fun. One thing, though, about Flowers’ remarks befuddled — and concerned — me.Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell, the man he was going to be assigned to block most of the day, is in his 12th season. He is a three-time Pro Bowler and was an All-Pro last season. There are voluminous scouting reports on the opposition provided by teams. Access to all the film you could possibly want to study. Yet, Flowers didn’t appear to know what to expect from Campbell on Sunday.In talking about the game-opening tripping penalty, with Campbell lined up against him, he said:“It was a quick pass so I jumped out there too fast on it. Next time I know what type of player I’m against, he’s not really a speed guy, so next time I’m won’t jump out so fast.”Umm ... what? With all of the information at your disposal how can you line up against an All-Pro in the season-opening game and not know what type of player you were going up against?GM Dave Gettleman talks about watching film until his eyes bleed. NFL players are known for studying hours and hours of tape each week — grinding away to find the slightest tendencies, the slightest tells, the tiniest bits of information they can gather to give them an advantage on game days.Some, though, really never master the art of studying the game. And it is an art. You have to know what you’re looking for, and how to use that information when you find it. Those who master it have a better chance of mastering their craft and succeeding on Sunday. Those who don’t will forever be at a disadvantage.Maybe that answer in itself reveals at least part of the reason why Flowers has continued to struggle during his four seasons with the Giants.I have no idea what Flowers’ study habits are. Or whether Flowers, noticeably reticent in speaking to the media, simply didn’t frame his statement well. That remark about Campbell, though, raises more questions than it answers.Quick thoughts on the offensive line in generalYes, the Giants have to be concerned about the offensive line. Still, let’s remember that the Jaguars possess a dominant defense. The Giants were never going to dominate the line of scrimmage in that game.If you think the cavalry is coming to upgrade the offensive line, guess again. Look at this list of available free agent tackles and tell me who you have confidence in. The Giants may add someone, but there’s no guarantee any of them will be better than what the Giants have.Eli Manning wasn’t the problem on SundayIn the press room on Sunday evening and on Twitter or in the BBV comments ever since Sunday’s game ended, there are those who want to blame the loss on quarterback Eli Manning. To put it succinctly, that’s a bunch of nonsense.If you’ve been reading Big Blue View for a while you know where I stand on Manning. I’m in the pro-Manning camp. That doesn’t make me blind to his weaknesses. It doesn’t make me incapable of seeing when he messes up, or admitting he’s done so. In no way White Phil Simms Jerseys , though, can you blame Sunday’s loss on Manning. Unless you are so far into the “I hate Eli, love Davis Webb and can’t believe the Giants didn’t draft Sam Darnold” camp that you can’t see clearly. In my view, Manning missed one throw — ONE!! — that he clearly should have completed on Sunday, the post to Odell Beckham Jr. that could have been a touchdown. The pick 6? Watch the play.I haven’t a clue how you can watch that play and objectively blame the outcome on Manning. Flowers is beaten badly to the outside, forcing Manning to step up. Patrick Omameh is tossed away like a dishrag by Abry Jones, who ends up right in the path of Manning’s throw and swats it into the air. What is Manning supposed to do about any of that?Manning’s not perfect. He didn’t play a perfect game. He took a pounding, pressured 18 times in 39 drop backs per Pro Football Focus, as the offensive line struggled. Let’s not forget the Jaguars have one of the NFL’s best defenses.The Giants showed some warts on Sunday. You can’t convince me that Manning was one of them.Here’s BBV quarterback guru Mark Schofield’s take on Manning’s Sunday:“They call it Overreaction Monday for a reason. This time last year the Ravens were back, the Chiefs were the best team in football and the Patriots had a host of problems. But it’s a long season and the results on a rainy afternoon at MetLife Stadium should be evaluated in context and used as a baseline. Did Eli Manning miss on a throw that might have changed the course of that game? Sure. New York caught Jacksonville in a Cover 4 look and got Odell Beckham isolated on a safety, but Manning’s throw was a step too far. Certainly a throw you’d like to see Manning make, but remember that this was a historically good pass defense a season ago, so making throws against Jacksonville is often a tough ask. The Pick Six was a disaster, and it started with Ereck Flowers up front. He got into his kick slide to try and match the speed of Yannick Ngakoue off the edge, but then stepped inside as he saw Telvin Smith come down to cover Saquon Barkley out of the backfield, assuming the LB was blitzing. He wasn’t, and that gave Ngakoue a free shot at Manning, who tried to climb the pocket and hit Barkley on a Texas route, but the pass was then tipped by Abry Jones and into the waiting arms of Myles Jack. That’s ... bad all around, but Manning did what he could when put in a difficult position. It’s not time to overreact, yet. “There were other missed opportunities, such as the fourth-and-6 throw to Sterling Shepard that came on a wheel route - a tough route to throw - that Manning underthrew by a step. If he hits either that throw, or the earlier post to Beckham, the conversation Monday morning is a much different one.”I will side with Mark, a guy who has played the position and understands it as well as anyone I know. New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur can be as dry as unbuttered toast when he wants to be. After Sunday’s crushing 33-31 last-second loss to the Carolina Panthers, though, Shurmur was as emotional/angry/unfiltered as he’s ever been since becoming the Giants’ head coach.On Odell Beckham’s comments to ESPNHere is the interview, just in case you aren’t aware of it.“Alright, listen, I’m gonna answer all the drama questions right now. I’m gonna go back to what I said, alright? I addressed it with Odell. I addressed it with our team,” Shurmur said, voice beginning to rise again. “I publicly declared that I didn’t agree with his comments ands I asked anyone who was interested if they wanted clarification go to Odell because he’s a big man. “I’m not gonna give the public a pound of flesh on this, alright? That would make me small, not strong. These are the kind of things, in my opinion, when you have the locker room that we have, that will help galvanize them. ‘Cause the locker room took care of it. That’s all I’m saying on it. Finito. Done!“Let’s talk football, not drama.”On the loss ... and his team“Disappointed for our team. We played hard. We played tough. We played the way that I know that our team is. For the record.“Our team is tough. They play hard and I’ve got no issues with the way they play. There’s still some things we’ve gotta clean up and play better, but we’ll get that fixed as we go.”On the questionable penalty vs. Landon Collins“I’m not gonna talk about calls.”Then, he did. And he got fired up when he did it, with his voice rising.“What I saw was a guy going for the ball, making an effort, I think he touched the ball if I’m not mistaken. I saw that with my own eyes. A guy is making a play on the ball with no attempt, no attempt to target the receiver. So, that’s how I saw it. I’m sure somebody will see it in slo-mo HD and somebody will tell me what they think.”On the time left after the Giants’ go-ahead touchdown“We gotta go out and play. We gotta go out and get ‘em stopped. Unfortunately they made a big kick and the score’s 33-31. I wasn’t worried. Let’s not go to that game, we scored with too much time. I’m not playing that bulls—- game.”

College football proved White Thurman Thomas Jerseys , once again, that its greatest strength is its unpredictability. No. 2 Georgia was shut down by No. 13 LSU’s defense, No. 17 Oregon relied on their rushing game to upset No. 7 Washington and Iowa State was able to come away with the win against West Virginia. Other teams, like No. 3 Ohio State and No. 14 Florida, faced some surprisingly competitive squads, but managed to come out on top anyway. Take a gander below for those players that helped out their draft stock during a crazy week. WR Collin Johnson (Texas)Johnson’s productive day receiving the ball allowed the Longhorns to fend off a feisty Baylor team. , but his ability to high-point the ball and his overwhelming catch radius allowed him to come down with most passes. Johnson was also very physical in his routes, not afraid to mix it up with whomever was standing in front of him. His day resulted in 11 catches for 132 yards and a touchdown.QB Dwayne Haskins (Ohio State)One of the few quarterback prospects who had a decent day at the office, Haskins picked apart Minnesota with pinpoint throws between the hashes. Unlike in his game against Penn State Thurman Thomas Jerseys 2019 , the sophomore signal caller wasn’t pressured much and was much more accurate and decisive as a consequence. Haskins finished the day with 33 completions on 44 attempts for 412 yards and three touchdowns.RB David Montgomery (Iowa State)A massive part of Iowa State’s win against heavily favored West Virginia was the play of a newly healthy Montgomery. The junior broke out his quick jump cut and just proved difficult to tackle and bring down all day. His ability to get West Virginia defenders to commit to gaps before cutting plays outside resulted in several big runs. With games like this, in what’s looking like a down draft for running backs, Montgomery is proving that he deserves to be considered one of the best.TE Jace Sternberger (Texas A&M)A&M had a fight on their hands against South Carolina’s electric offense and turned to perhaps it’s most unlikely contributor: recent transfer tight end Jace Sternberger. The junior had a career day thanks to his quick straight-line speed out of his stance and his soft hands. Most of all though was his absolute refusal to go down after first contact. He was dragging defenders all over the field after catches. Sternberger’s day resulted in 7 receptions for 145 yards and a touchdown. He’s one to watch moving forward.DE Zach Allen (Boston College)Teammate Wyatt Ray may have had more sacks, but Allen was more regularly disruptive in their game against Louisville. With his quickness off the snap and his pure upper-body strength, he took up residence in the Cardinals’ backfield. The senior was second on the team in tackles and came up with a sack and three-tackles-for-loss. He also managed to block a PAT attempt, which meant his team was able to go into the locker room at halftime up by four. LB Joe Giles-Harris (Duke)Teams need great linebacker play if they want to have any hope of defeating the triple-option offense, and that’s what Duke got on Saturday with the play of Joe Giles-Harris. The junior from Rockland County was the heady veteran presence that the Blue Devils needed in defending the Georgia Tech attack. Even though he didn’t have any splash plays, he paced his team with 15 tackles and his ability to take on blockers and tackle runners ensured that the Yellow Jackets had very few long gains. HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans are the sixth team since 1980 and the first in 20 years to make the postseason after a 0-3 start.“When you start off 0-3 and you’re sitting here at 10-5 with a chance to win the division on Sunday you’ve done a lot of good things over the course of those games since we were 0-3,” defensive end J.J. Watt said. “But we have to make sure that we do what we need to do to make sure that doesn’t all go to waste.”They’ve lost two of their past three games, capped by Sunday’s 32-30 loss at Philadelphia White Bruce Smith Jerseys , but earlier had won nine straight games after their dismal start to turn their season around and reach the playoffs for the fifth time in franchise history and first since 2016.The Texans (10-5) opened with losses to New England, Tennessee and the New York Giants that left them 0-3 and were all close games decided by a total of 15 points.Houston’s rebound began with consecutive three-point wins in overtime against Indianapolis and Dallas before seven-point victories over Buffalo and Jacksonville.The Texans scored their most points of the season the following week in a 42-23 trouncing of the Miami Dolphins. Their next two wins both came by two points after both Denver and Washington missed long field goals in the final seconds of those games.The Texans extended their winning streak to nine games with victories over Tennessee and Cleveland before their first loss since Sept. 23 came in a 24-21 defeat against the Colts on Dec. 9.Houston led early against the New York Jets before falling behind and needing a fourth-quarter rally to get a 29-22 win on Dec. 15.As the Texans prepare to wrap up the regular season with a visit from the Jaguars where they need a win to clinch the AFC South title, here’s a look at the other teams who reached the playoffs after 0-3 starts.1981 NEW YORK JETSNew York’s winless start came thanks to losses to Buffalo, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. The Jets’ first win of the season came in a 33-17 defeat of the Oilers before they played to a 28-28 overtime tie with the Dolphins.They won two in a row after that before a loss to the Seahawks. A season-long five-game winning streak followed before the Seahawks downed them once again. But they bounced back with two wins to wrap up the regular season and finish 10-5-1 and second in the AFC East.They hosted the Bills in the wild-card game and scored 14 points in the fourth quarter to cut the deficit, but came up just short in the 31-27 loss.1982 TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERSThis team is different than the others on this list because Tampa Bay’s turnaround from 0-3 to the playoffs came in a season that was shortened to just nine games because of a 57-day strike by the players. Because of the strike the league adopted different rules for qualifying for the playoffs that weren’t tied to division standings, leading to two teams Cleveland (4-5) and Detroit (4-5) making the postseason despite losing records.Tampa Bay won its next two after starting 0-3 before a loss to the Jets. The Buccaneers, who were led by quarterback Doug Williams then won their last three regular-season games, capped by a 26-23 overtime victory against the Bears to finish 5-4 and reach the postseason.But just as the Jets had a year before, the Buccaneers fell in the wild-card game when Williams threw three interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown Bruce Smith Jerseys 2019 , in a 30-17 loss to the Cowboys.1992 SAN DIEGO CHARGERSIt would be a decade until another team opened the season 0-3 to make the playoffs, and the San Diego Chargers stand out on this list because they are the only team to drop their first four games and reach the postseason.The Chargers fell in the huge hole early after Stan Humphries threw eight interceptions with just one TD in the first four games. San Diego got going after that, winning four in a row to reach .500 before its second loss of the season to Kansas City. The Chargers rebounded the next week with a win to start a seven-game streak to end the season at 11-5 and give them the AFC West title.They became the first of these teams to win a playoff game when they beat Kansas City 17-0 in the wild card after the Chiefs beat them twice in the regular season.Their season ended when Humphries threw four interceptions and Dan Marino had three touchdown passes in a 31-0 win by the Dolphins in the divisional round.1995 DETROIT LIONSThe Lions won two in a row after their 0-3 start but then lost their next two to fall to 2-5. Another win followed by their sixth loss came after that before they finally got rolling, winning their last seven regular-season games to finish 10-6 and second in the NFC Central.Barry Sanders ran for 1,500 yards and 11 touchdowns that season, with 10 of those scores coming in Detroit’s wins.Detroit met Philadelphia in the wild-card and Sanders managed just 40 yards rushing as Rodney Peete threw three touchdowns to lead the Eagles to a 58-37 win.1998 BUFFALO BILLSFormer Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips coached the 1998 Bills when they turned their season around to reach the playoffs after a 0-3 start. The Bills opened the season with Rob Johnson at quarterback, but Doug Flutie took over during the fifth game when Johnson was injured and helped them to a 31-24 comeback win over the Colts. The next week Flutie made his first NFL start since 1989 and led the Bills to a 17-16 win over the Jaguars for their first loss of the season.Those two wins were part of a five-game streak that came after the winless start. The Bills won four of six after that streak and ended the regular season with a loss to the Jets and a win over the Saints to finish 10-6 and in third place in the AFC East.The Bills lost to Miami 24-17 in the wild card when Flutie threw an interception and they lost four fumbles.
