Jeremy Green is signing to chat right now! Get those questions in!
Jeremy Green (4:11 PM)
Guess just found out from BUZZ there is no such thing as an off-season. Travis my agent? make some calls.
Jeremy, What is your take on the Cassel/Cutler trade and who woud you rather have?
Jeremy Green (4:14 PM)
Cutler. even in Denver where Cassel would have a better understanding of the system. Cutler's physical tools are as good as any QB in the NFL and I would think a young guy like McDainels would more try to gravitate to that. Cutler got sloppy a little last year with some of his mechanics but Shanahan was not working with him daily. McDainels should be embracing his star player
What do the eagles do with two 1st round picks?
Jeremy Green (4:16 PM)
well likely one move will be to do what they appear every year and that is Andy Reid pointing to Jim Johnson and saying pick any DL you want. I think they will look for a Young Safety, still always looking at a WR and I think u start to look at Westbrook who I love but the wear and tear? They have to be thinking franchise back as well.
Does Spielman and Chilly really think the Vikes last year were Sage, and a couple draft picks, minus Sharper and Birk, away from the S.B.? Slow or just to afraid to admit Tarvaris is a bust?
Jeremy Green (4:18 PM)
Could make a case that a QB gave them a shot because the Eagles basically tried to give them that came and TJ could not make a play. That said I think Sage is what he is and that is a good backup. A guy that is pretty good for a few weeks and then the tape is there to watch and people solve the puzzle.
ok Jeremy, you still sticking by your prediction two seasons ago that Jacksonville will upset New England???
Jeremy Green (4:19 PM)
WOW... Now that is a Pats fan for you... 2-years and you can't let it go. Buzz get him some tissues
JG should the Jets look into getting Igor Olshansky or Marques Douglas, this way they could rotate at DE in 3-4 scheme?
Jeremy Green (4:23 PM)
Olshansky is the better player.. Dougles knows the system. Jets need DE help and I think both bring a little something different. Douglas is an original Raven which would help in the locker room.
Danny (New York)
Why are the Jets spending money on that defense when their priority should be that QB situation they got themselves into
Is Terrell Owens going to become an Oakland Raider?
Jeremy Green (4:29 PM)
NO chance. TO is not going to play with a non-contender. Say what u want about off the field... he competes on the FIELD and does want to win. I see the Rasvens as the perfect fit ala Moss in New England. Lewis is the vocal leader as the Pats had many and TO can shut up and play football. Worked for Moss and I think Ravens could be a solid spot
Think the Jags make anymore free agent moves? They have been quiet.
Jeremy Green (4:30 PM)
looking for some baragains... no chance Weaver was listening to FA talk after that disaster they had last year delving into free agency.
PT (Franklin, NC)
Is Kalif Barnes a good fit for Oakland at the right tackle position?
Jeremy Green (4:31 PM)
He is an upgrade but a guy that has underachieved. Not many underachivers coming to mind in Oakland that got better when went there because the program allows you to be aloof.
Mike (San Diego)
JG, do we realize this year that Tony Romo is just an average QB. Not a TO fan at all, but I admit he makes a QB look better...your thoughts?
Jeremy Green (4:33 PM)
I think they will miss him. Tough to answer because if Roy WIlliams is the same guy they got for the end of last year then yes he is in trouble and Whiten as we saw 2-years ago when TO had the ankle at the end of the year was consistently doubled and less productive
Cutler controversy aside (i still say this was just an overblown media story), how have you liked the broncos moves this offseason?
Jeremy Green (4:35 PM)
Like the RB depth. I like Dawkins but wish they would find a young guy for him to groom. Overall is has been solid and I would not say overblown. Went down this road with Butch Davis in CLE and it started like this. McDaniels has not had one team meeting and half the team is saying can I trust him. Do not discount that.
David Ropp Urbana,Ohio
Who do you think Clevelands starting QB will be?
Jeremy Green (4:38 PM)
Quinn. Again what does mangini have to lose? The guys that drafted him are gone and if it does not pan out he gets a free pass.
do you think that the giants will make a big move on a wr? GO GIANTS!
Jeremy Green (4:39 PM)
TO in NY? He has already self destructed in two NFC East cities... maybe 3 and we can all laugh at this. Serioulsy? The odds are better then 50% that he wears a skins uni before career is over.
Do the eagles trade for boldin after stocking up on picks?
Jeremy Green (4:40 PM)
They would like to. I think they feel another young WR is not going to get them over the hump today. They need A GUY... Boldin coulsd be that guy who is the #1 they have been seeking.
Cole (Kansas City)
What does having Todd Haley as a Coach mean for Dwayne Bowe? Bowe seemed to struggle with consistency last year, but he has the makings of an elite WR. Do you agree?
Jeremy Green (4:44 PM)
the spread is going to help without question. Haley is a WR coach by trade so Bowe will get coached up daily and one thing when u look at AZ and this is why I am a Haley fan. Fitz was getting doubled every week and we did not ever hear the old well he is doubled so can't get it to him... they found different ways consistently.
JG, With all the bridges Owens has burned. Would someone like Ozzie Newsome who was named by Owens in one of his books actually take a chance on him? I do not see Ray Lewis being able to control Owens on the sidelines when Lewis on the field.
Jeremy Green (4:47 PM)
but not sure Ray has to because TO is not expected to lead and that works. Moss does not need controlled
WOW comparing McD to Butch Davis. Now there was an ego. Does McD have an ego like that?
Jeremy Green (4:49 PM)
Not as much the ego but I think all Bills disciples have learned this... You can't be BILL B and there are things he can say and do and then present that u will never be able to to do as a HC
What exactly is Jerry Angelo doing right now? The Bears have many needs and he isn't doing anything to fill them.
Terry in Portland
Jeremy, what is your take on Derek Anderson from Cleveland. Should the Browns trade him or keep him? Who are the most likely trading partners?
Jeremy Green (4:51 PM)
Keep him.. you need two guys. I am not sure his market is such that the value is there to move him.
Rob in Reno, Nevada
Jeremy, any chance the 49ers bring Garcia and Owens back?
Jeremy Green (4:53 PM)
interesting take there Rob. I toyed with it because they need players at the spots. I do not think both but I have a hunch that Mike SIngletary is saying knowing his personality... "I am the coach who can control T.O."
pattydread (back of the class)
All of Belichek's assistants that became head coaches have pretty much sputtered or fallen flat on their faces--Mangini, weiss, romeo...will McD be any different?
Jeremy Green (4:54 PM)
That is point. He has to be his own guy and already he is doing things that only a vet coach knows how to manuver. NEVER Leaks in New England. McDaniels kind of assumes I guess that will just follow him? Love Bill B but the assts are all cookie cutter in same mold.
Jeremy Green (4:55 PM)
Well thanks to Buzz for reminding me there is no off-season in the NFL. Guess that means I will see everyone back here next Friday.
