Podcast; Jets Offseason Talk With Michael Nania

Photo by Justin Casterline/ Our old buddy Michael Nania joins me today on the podcast for Jets offseason discussion. On the show we discuss the free agent period the Jets just had. Michael tells us his excitement over the Carl Lawson signing. We also discuss some of the moves that didn’t necessarily address major needs but still improved the team. We also discuss the upcoming NFL Draft. There is obviously a major debate among Jets fans between Justin Fields and Zach Wilson. Michael and I offer our takes on the matter. For us it isn’t necessarily a matter of better....

Impressions of Zach Wilson

Photo by Mark Brown/ Through the years one of my great frustrations has been the inconsistency of my Draft evaluations. They haven’t all been bad. During the 2017 NFL Draft when I picked a player for the Jets as they were on the clock my class included Jamal Adams, Dalvin Cook, Carl Lawson, and Desmond King. That would have been the best Jets class in more than a decade. Still I have plenty of errors on my resume, some of them big. All you can do is try to learn from your mistakes and figure out how to improve in the future. This is obviously a big Draft for the...

With Carl Lawson exit, Bengals may bring in high-value compensatory draft pick

Katie Stratman-USA TODAY Sports The Bengals did not have any this season, but with the loss of Carl Lawson, they may have a few in 2022. Although the Cincinnati Bengals brought in a player that ranked within the top three in sacks last season, they’ll be losing one that ranked in the top 15 in ESPN’s Sacks Created metric. The franchise added Trey Hendrickson and lost Carl Lawson. Despite momentum that the Bengals would keep him, Lawson signed with the New York Jets. It will be a brutal loss for Cincinnati, as Lawson became a fan-favorite towards the end of his stint...

Photo by: 2019 Nick Cammett/Diamond Images via Over the next few weeks, we’re going to take an in-depth look at each of the Jets’ offseason acquisitions, continuing today with defensive end Carl Lawson. The 25-year old is listed at 6’2” and 265 pounds and was a fourth round pick out of Auburn in 2017. In four years with the Bengals, he has registered 20 sacks, albeit only 11.5 over the past three seasons. He was among the league leaders in total pressures in 2020, though. Background Lawson was a five-star recruit after recording 27 sacks in his senior year in...

The Off-season is young, why you shouldn’t be concerned with the offensive line...yet

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Joe Douglas has done a lot of smart business so far this off-season, bringing on a lot of low cost, low risk, high-upside talent. Whether that’s Keelan Cole, Sheldon Rankin or Jarrad Davis. There’s a lot to like about Douglas’s approach to the second tier of free agents after reeling in some big fish in Corey Davis and Carl Lawson. Some however, may be concerned that one of the biggest areas of weakness from last season is still a big area of weakness. Outside of signing the mullet man Dan Feeney who has been quite poor over the...
