Holy collusion, Batman.....within an hour of the Rats announcing the Lamar tag, 5 teams, 4 of which definitely need a QB, said "we'll pass." I figured Atlanta, or that dumbass owner in Carolina, would at least take a swing.

Jets starting to announce contract restructuring to clear cap space. Rodgers will be announced as the new QB by Friday evening. Either way, I'm drinking heavily this weekend. Hopefully it's a celebration.

Jets: We plan to sign Rodgers!

Rodgers: I'm retiring.

Justin: Drinks heavily, not in celebration.

greeny made the point on mcafee yesterday that if rodgers retires now he's essentially choosing not playing for the jets over 60 million dollars. i kind of want to see that. selfishly because the dolphins got smoked by GB and it'll be tough to not suck with him and allen in the division.

Fun begins..... Rats to put the nonexclusive franchise tag on Mushmouth Lamar. Other teams can negotiate with him. Rats can match any offer or get two 1st's in return. Let's see if the running back who occasionally throws can get that $250 guaranteed he thinks he's worth.

Google his first 1000 passes this is a dumb post.

So you think Lamar is a good QB? I think he’s a great athlete and football player, and you won’t win big with him behind center.

He's a backyard/school yard type of "QB" and I use that term "QB" loosely. 

He can't hit sideline throws and, more times than not, has to scramble around, waiting for his receivers to run around like it's some kind of fire drill until they get WIDE open. He's not going to fit accurate passes into tight windows.

He's an ideal college QB, where WR's are running wide open and free but he's not a precision/accurate passer.

Laley hit the nail on the head. Exceptional athlete/football player but he's not a great QB.

He was the NFL MVP but also the last two season he’s thrown 33 TD and 20 interceptions.

Not shown great health last two years either.

NFL defenses have adjusted pretty well….not as good as MLB pitchers have adjusted to Cody Bellinger…..but both were MVP in 2019. A lot of luster lost.

I think the book is kind of out on how to defend him. 

I hate the Rats but I think they're playing this right not throwing the Brinks truck at a player with limitations. 

Not necessarily comparing skillsets to RGIII but once Griffin got that knee injury he was pretty much done. The last two years Lamar's season has ended due to a leg injury (even though this past year I think he was milking it to prove a point). Not a knee injury but once this stuff starts to happen a team needs to monitor it closely.

I can say with 100% certainty that his running skills are electric but I'd be pissed if he were the starting QB for my team.

He took the league by storm, and couldnt be stopped rushing. Led to broken plays and run/pass options with WIDE open WRs. League adjusted really fast, like they always do, and now he is a middling QB whos main threat is waning because he gets hurt every 4th game -- and he wont have this athleticism forever.

had a offensive coordinator who wanted to run the ball and couldnt design a good passing scheme. add to that mix a bunch of no name receivers and the most heavily injured team in the league.
