TOP 5 Most Underrated NFL Quarterbacks

The quarterback position is one of the most important and strategic roles on the field in American Modern Football and in most cases, the quarterback is also the leader of the line of offense. Before each play, the quarterback will inform his team members which “play” they will go for, thus establishing both the offensive tactic and the alignment of the defense and midfield lines. It is a really complicated decision, similar to the one you have to make when comparing hot offers from PartyCasino, let’s say. If the chosen play is a passing one, it will be the quarterback who will launch one of those long exquisite passes across the adversaries’ line of defense. Also, in NFL, quarterbacks are required to wear a number from 1 to 9 for easier distinction.

Dead Money: Other Team’s Players Counting Against New York Jets Cap

Michael McLaughlin on former New York Jets who are still counting against the team’s salary cap…

What do Darrelle Revis, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Eric Decker all have in common? They’re three of the nine former Jets who are still counting against the team’s salary cap.

In economic terms, the Jets have lots of sunk costs — a cost that has already been incurred and cannot be recovered. In football terms, that is dead money. Only the Ravens have more counting against their 2017 salary cap than New York ($17.6 million).

That generally means an organization has handed out several contracts that were either too long, too expensive, or both. 

Below is review of the players who are counting as dead money against the Jets cap and where they stand with their current teams. Revis is the only one of such players who is not currently on an NFL roster. Note that this does not include players such as David Harris, who does not count as dead money according to overthecap.com.

New York Jets Preseason Week Two: Stock Up, Stock Down…

Kyle Fahey with a stock up, stock down report on the New York Jets after their second preseason game

The Jets traveled to Ford Field to square off against the Detroit Lions in week two of the Preseason. The Jets lacked the desired offense and lost the game 16-6 after a failed second half comeback attempt with Bryce Petty at the helm.

In a bit of a shock, the Jets trotted out second year project QB, Christian Hackenberg to start the game against the Lions. This confirmed two things for the Jets, the first being that Josh McCown will be the week one starter for Gang Green. And the second being the 12th overall selection..which has already been announced as Defensive Tackle, Christian Wilkins from THE Clemson University. LET’S GO AVERAGE BABY! While all that happened… some players looked good, others looked bad. It was basically an Amy Schumer comedy special out there.
