With this being the first offseason for Joe Douglas as the head man for the Jets, we are continuing to find out what his philosophy is to build a team. He has had a price in mind for free agents and has refused to go above his offer which is refreshing after Mike Maccagnan continued to throw out large contracts. We’ve also seen that Douglas has thrown a bunch of one-year deals to players to maintain cap flexibility and build the core of the franchise through the draft.

In order to capitalize on Sam Darnold‘s rookie deal, Douglas and the front office will have to help him out along the offensive line and provide more in terms of offensive playmakers.

Through all the success that Wisconsin has had at offensive line, Tyler Biadasz was the first center in Wisconsin’s history to win the Rimington Trophy that is awarded to the nation’s most outstanding center. The three-year starter at center announced yesterday that he will be entering the draft joining underclassmen Jonathan Taylor and Quintez Cephus. Much like Taylor, the decision does not come as much of a surprise but the decorated junior now makes it official.
We have already seen this matchup earlier in the season.
On October 26th, the 6-1 Badgers met the undefeated Buckeyes in Columbus. Wisconsin had been coming off of a stunning upset to the Fighting Illini after starting off the year incredibly hot while Ohio State continued their dominance over the rest of the country.
The 2019 season has flown by as we now very clearly know which teams are contenders and which are looking forward to April’s draft. The Ravens are the new number one in the rankings with their stomping of the Texans while the winless Bengals remain last.
This was a great weekend of football. The NFL week opened up with a great Raiders-Chargers game and closed with one of the best games ever. College football provided some great games as well, headlined by the LSU-Alabama matchup. After the incredible weekend, here is where everyone in the NFL stands. Continue reading →
Most of the college football world penciled in a Badgers loss to Ohio State before the season and even after Wisconsin got off to a hot start, but no one could have predicted the meltdown in Champaign. Now with two losses, the Badgers will need some help from Big Ten opponents to knock off long-time rivals Iowa and Minnesota to win the Big Ten West. Continue reading →
After nine weeks, there is only one undefeated team left and one winless team left as well. Week nine was a weird one with the Chargers easily handling the Packers, the Dolphins notching their first win, and Brandon Allen leading the Broncos over the Browns. Here is where the NFL stands going into the second half of the season.
We are now halfway through the regular season and we now know the identities of teams and what their future looks like. Some teams are starting to look towards the playoffs and hopes of winning the division while some teams, like the Jets and Falcons, are unexpectedly looking forward to the draft.
There was a ton of movement in the weekly rankings this week. The one constant in the NFL seems to be the Patriots while the 49ers are legit and the Ravens might be the biggest threat to the Patriots in the AFC.
If Wisconsin beats Ohio State, would they make the college football playoff? Can the top-ranked defense hold up against Justin Fields and the Ohio State offense? Will Jack Coan be able to step up against the Buckeyes secondary if Jonathan Taylor is kept in check?
We are almost halfway into the regular season and the identities of teams are starting to become clear. Slow starts might not be just slow starts while hot starts might just mean a team like the Lions or 49ers are for real. Here is where I see teams and where they stack up with the rest of the league.
This was the hardest time I had ranking the NFL and piecing together where to put teams. Of the teams I had ranked 3-13 last week, only the Saints pulled out a win while the Patriots and Chiefs who I had in the top two spots barely came away with wins. With that being said, here are the power rankings after week four.
There was a lot movement in my rankings this week but that is a result of it still being early in the season and still finding out the identity of teams. The Giants are the biggest movers this week as they moved up nine spots with the play of Daniel Jones.
The Jets had a disappointing 2018 season. The team did not have high expectations, by any means with Sam Darnold in his rookie year but the team only managed to win four games and missed the playoffs for the eighth straight season. Coming off an abysmal year, the offseason was busy and hectic with moves made throughout the organization.
Preseason football is fun. Most of the game the second and third teams will be out there, but nonetheless, football is back!
