The league has a NY problem - probably more appropriate would be a bad ownership problem. If I'm the NFL I do NOT want Lawrence with the NYJ and to a lesser extent the other awful teams in the running. These teams that can't get out of their own way. Run through coaches, assistant coaches ... are just hoping to hit the lottery with no real plan. The NYJ would be a little better with Lawrence but that's a big rebuild. Like a 4-5 year rebuild which is crazy considering how the league is set up. You need a culture change, coaches, players on both sides, competent front office ... I don't see a quick turnaround there and you don't want you keep throwing the best young talent in a volcano and say, "swim".Good for Houston. OB wasn't it and these teams that stick with these obvious bad fits are paying the price and wasting QBs that are good enough to win with and even can carry a team.
How about Easterby?!? Goes from player counselor to running a team.
Detroit needs to follow suit and fast. Detroit was like 9-7, 7-9, 11-5 before MP. He's won like 4 games. Had two good defensive performances and looks lost if we're being honest. Lost.

Gase should already be gone. MB shouldn't have been on the field. You don't put your future at risk. This after years of F'n around on offense.
I'm not sure I can imagine what kind of lies you tell yourself and delusion one is in to keep these guys on board.
Houston has to be kicking themselves. They gave Mia a top 5-10 pick and won't be picking until the 3rd I believe. Big holes on offense & defense. No leadership.
If I'm a team that is ready to win now. Legit QB away I'm calling GB, Atl, Det to see where they're at with their QB's. GB has shown the don't mind playing hard ball and have a line in the sand. The just pissed AR off with Love. You know they're thinking about life after AR.
I hope we keep our picks this year. We'll have multiple 3rd's & 4th's between ours and comp picks. Plenty of ammo for team looking to rebuild/reload.
Sure the league is set up so bad teams can get good with high cheap(er) prospects but some teams have been at this for decades, literally decades with absolutely nothing to show for it. This is why I laugh when people think some "amateurs" couldn't help evaluate talent or help with film study/coaching. You have people that are handed everything, sometimes undeserving and you get 20-30 years of mediocre or poor.
Anyway if I'm the league I'm praying something tricky happens and the jets get a win/maybe two but that would take a borderline miracle, no? They'll be at least a 7 point dog in almost the rest of their games?
Chargers, Bills X2, Pats X2, KC, Sea, Cleveland, Rams, Miami X2
It's possible, I guess if Covid kills us, Miami? Idk but if I'm thinking the league wants him elsewhere. Would have been nice if SF imploded earlier.
Mentioned this a few pages back but now Atlanta should be in borderline full sell mode and take anything they can get for Jones & Ryan. Give Jones away for a 2nd/3rd if you have to. Ryan would get a 1st. Sell high on anyone else and tank for Lawrence. I wonder if they would listen to offers for Ridley or Jarrett? They're two guys that could help most teams. If I'm GB I'm asking about Jones, Ridley ...
TD went from the grounds crew at Cleveland at one point to a play away from beating his old team and winning a SB. He's a lifer imo. He loves this stuff. Hope he lands on his feet. They got out of control, things got away from them quick after the SB loss and even a little before then but that's the NFL at times.
