Thursday means it is mailbag day on the podcast. Thanks to those of you who submitted questions. I did my best to get to all of them. If I missed yours, the great thing about doing one mailbag show each week is that we are just one week away from the next mailbag so you won’t have to wait long to ask again. This week’s questions focus on the job Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles...

Sometimes it is all about reporting the news, rather than believing it. Therefore we bring this tidbit of information, straight from the lips of New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo. The Giants signed Smith a couple of weeks into free agency as a backup to quarterback Eli Manning. Apparently, Smith is already being eyed as an eventual successor to Manning, though it is important...
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was asked a number of questions about Darrelle Revis on Tuesday. However, he remained mum about the free agent cornerback potentially joining his team.Per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the one thing Tomlin would say is that he has “great respect” for Revis. But he wouldn’t comment about his status as a free agent in relationship to the Steelers...
The New York Giants added a powerful weapon on offense when they signed veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall. And It appears he and fellow wideout Odell Beckham Jr. are bonding quite nicely.So much so, that Marshall looks to be eager to subtly take on the role of a mentor to OBJ. Marshall is nine years Beckham’s senior and has had a colorful career filled with ups and downs over...
To start off, NFL free agency is technically not over. In fact, there are still quite a few big names that are still on the market (Adrian Peterson anyone?). Despite this, the New York Jets have already signed their biggest free agent of 2017, Josh McCown, and have made their offseason plan clear to fans: full on rebuild from the ground up. While many thought the Jets might go...
The 2016 New York Jets season was not one to remember fondly. Injuries, ineffectiveness and more of the traditional Jets controversy we’ve long been accustomed to were some of the highlights (or lowlights) of the season. That said, the offseason is a great time to evaluate what a team has in terms of skill and potential success. Below, the wide receivers of the Jets will...
Dont’a Hightower did not stay in New England for the money.According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the linebacker was offered more money by both the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers, but turned them both down to stay with the Patriots.Hightower received a base salary in the neighborhood of $8.7 million from New England. The Steelers had been offering over $9 million per...
New York Jets fans were unhappy after it was announced that the team signed Josh McCown on Monday. However, they need to pump the brakes and realize that it was actually a good move.Sure, McCown is journeyman. He has played for seven different teams over the course of his NFL career, which he’s often criticized for. But at this stage of his career, that translates to experience...
Christian Hackenberg had a rookie season to forget with the New York Jets, but perhaps all the bad press he has received is not an indication of how the team envisions his future.The Jets signed Josh McCown to a one-year contract on Monday, and the veteran quarterback could be asked to lead the team in an obvious bridge year. Now that they have seemingly settled for a mediocre option...
Josh McCown is heading to the Jets.The veteran QB agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Jets that will pay him $6 million guaranteed, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.McCown, who will be 38 when the season begins, is hardly a reason for the Jets to get excited. He passed for 1,100 yards, 6 touchdowns and 6 interceptions last season with the Browns while struggling to stay...
Normally a quarterback drafted in the second round who is entering his second season is ready to at least take a shot at being the starter.Not Christian Hackenberg.A source told the New York Daily News in January that Hackenberg “will never make it,” and it’s hard not to believe that source with the Jets bringing in all these retread backups for a visit.Chase Daniel is the...
Darrelle Revis and the New England Patriots seem like a natural fit.Revis was a colossal bust with the New York Jets last season despite banking on a huge contract. He’s now available and a reunion with the Patriots isn’t the craziest thing about this week in March (not by a long shot).It’s why Ben Volin of the Boston Globe just brought it up:Don’t discount the return of...
