      it really is, but it’s even better to finally see those fans get a winning team on the field they deserved it for a long time. as much crap and bad football they’ve seen the last 20 years just winning that playoff game against the Steelers probably felt like the super bowl itself. could you imagine if they actually pulled the upset yesterday against the chiefs after my home’s left, setting up a AFC championship game of Cleveland at Buffalo. those two cities would have been just absolutely insane this week and whatever city won the game but it just been having an ungodly good time.

          How funny would it be that Tom Brady leaves your division and there’s a change you meet him in the Super Bowl.

            And Allen whips Bradys cheating little girl behind! Allen grown up and good game Bill fans. Wanted Allen knew he was gonna be the best outta that draft. I love Lamar. GL

        As a Browns fan nothing would have made me happier than a Browns-Bills championship game, but they can’t both win it in the same year so I’m hoping this is Buffalo’s time.

  1. phillyballers

    1. Jacksonville Jaguars – Trevor Lawrence
    2. New York Jets – Justin Fields/Zach Wilson
    3. Miami Dolphins (via Texans) – Trade to Texans – Devonta Smith
    4. Atlanta Falcons – Justin Fields/Zach Wilson
    5. Cincinnati Bengals – Penei Sewell
    6. Philadelphia Eagles – Ja’Marr Chase
    7. Detroit Lions – Gregory Rousseau
    8. Carolina Panthers – Micha Parsons
    9. Denver Broncos – Trey Lance
    10. Dallas Cowboys – Patrick Surtain II

    The draft hinges on 2 teams 1) Do the Jets trade back, trade Darnold, or stand pat and take Sewell? and 2) Do the Texans trade Watson to Miami (signed a 4 yr ext) for #3 overall and Tua?

    I’ve assumed that the 2nd option does happen. Now maybe a team like the Jets says bleep this trying to develop a QB, We’ll trade for Watson and send Darnold to Houston along with #2?

    The Jets have 70M in cap space.

      Cowboys trade Dak Zeke and Amari Cooper to the jets for both of their 1st round picks and a 3rd.

        • dcahen

          Dak is not under contract; he’s been franchise tagged so he becomes a FA unless they tag him again; but with Maholmes & Watson’s new deals; tag for QB might be close to $40 mil. I doubt they would tag him & then trade him; not sure that’s possible in the CBA.

    • phenomenalajs

      As a Jets’ fan, I say keep the pick and take Sewell. Sam would do well with the Shanahan-style offense and that OL would be scary with Becton and Sewell as bookends. I think the WR class is deep enough to get a good one with Seattle’s pick.

    • rondon

      It will take at least 2 first round picks, multiple other picks and Tua to get Watson. A top 5 QB is the most valuable player in a franchise and it will be expensive to get one.

    • VampWeekAtBern

      If the Bengals end up with Sewell without trading up, it’s already an ideal draft for the Bengals.

    • AstrosWS20

      Not many players, let alone a young guy in his 20s, would refuse a trade to New York. Biggest city in the country with unlimited endorsement opportunities, ability to live a much bigger life than in Houston, and has a strong fanbase.

      • rondon

        New York or not, it’s a franchise eternally mired in mediocrity. Why would he ever want that?

    • I Beg To Differ

      If Jets are offering the most its either go to the Jets or stay in Houston for 3 years. If hes unhappy 3 years of not earning money by sitting out and not playing is alot of money to give up.

    • GoLandCrabs

      Jets have a decent coach now. Dont see him declining a chance to live in NYC.

    • I Beg To Differ

      Hes under contract for 3 years.

      The NTC has little impact considering the Texans can just keep him.

      If he wants to refuse to play theyll let him sit out, not pay him, fine him, and it’ll be a miserable 3 years for Watson while giving up a lot of money.

      It’ll be Leveon Bell 2.0. Bell turned down the 70 mill offer, played the sit out game, and wound up with 52.5 mill. Cost himself roughly 18 mill.

      If Watson wants to use his NTC he’s only going to hurt himself in the long run.

  2. Jack0207

    I didn’t mean to upset you jets fans. Just pointing out that he can choose where he wants to play next year. Also Texans are not going to tie up 3 years of high salary by letting a player sit. They will trade him this year.

  3. davidkaner

    If you think he goes from Texans to the Jets then you don’t know football. He will want to go to a decent organization not a horrible one. Think SF, Tampa, New England or even Dallas

  4. davidkaner

    If he didn’t have a no trade clause, Jets would be am option. No one wants to be traded to the Jets, Detroit, Cincinnati, now you add the Texans to the mix.
