    Just Bell and Darnold to go. :giggle1:

    Getting two first round picks for a safety, no matter how good a safety, is a good haul. Especially when the player has basically told the world he wanted out and therefore weakened the Jets negotiating position.

    I think its great business, and by all accounts the S we got isn't all that bad either. Hoping Bell has a good year this year to repay my faith in him lol

    Adams was a bad apple so I'm glad we are shot of him, probably saved ourselves about $80 million :56: he will be missed no doubt but * him, I think it's hilarious he hasn't ended up at Dallas which is where he clearly wanted to go. I do think he will end up there though, Seattle arent even speaking about an extension until 2021 apparently.

    Hmm I'm not sure Adams is a bad apple. I think you'll probably find he'll knuckle down in Seattle and will probably even become a leader on that team.

    For me the bad apple is Adam Gase. Good players don't seem to be able to work with that guy.

    I'm no fan of Gase by a long stretch, but the lack of well wishes to Adams from his ex team mates in NY tells me a lot. Why did he wait until the last few days to start slating the coach?

    He was running his mouth and I'd rather not deal with his drama.

    Gase is toxic mate yous need rid of the *, he also for a head coach is appalling at play calling. I lost count of the times we had 3rd and long in Miami and the * runs it.

    Dolphins place Xavien Howard on PUP list, hopefully just a precaution.

    At the end he was saying ANYTHING that would force the Jets hand and make them trade him. He even criticised the Jets owner. Players never do that. That tells you everything about how desperate he was to get out.

    I think in this particular instance the motivation for Adams to leave New York was ultimately financial and not the Head Coach. I just think that Adams criticising Gase throws more gasoline on an already raging bonfire. His record as a Head Coach is bad and numerous players who looked useless while playing for Gase have subsequently gone on to do pretty well under other coaches.

    Stick with it. It's honestly not as complicated as it first appears.

    There are a few videos on youtube explaining basic concepts of the game. That really helped me when I wanted to get into it more. I'm still learning, but I can comfortably watch a game and enjoy it now. I even managed to get to one of the NFL London games last year and seeing it in the flesh really helped my overall understanding of the game, along with playing Madden 20. :giggle1:

    Worst Madden ever I deleted it off my Xbox, EA really need to lose that franchise along with FIFA.

    Fair enough mate, but it’s a buggy mess imo the mechanics are * plus typical EA they only care about UT.

    Surprised to hear that. Madden is generally solid. For years I have wished for a PC game to come out like Football Manager but for the NFL. Still I wait.............. I reckon it would be awesome.

    There was an old NFL management type game years ago for the Amstrad CPC 464, I remember my stepdad was never off the * thing and it was meant to be my computer for Christmas. :54:

    Was there? I had one of them as well. Was my first computer. I wanted a Commodore 64 so was a bit disappointed when I laid eyes on it. :giggle1:

    Found it far easier to understand just by watching it rather than watching videos trying to explain the it.

    People seem to over complicate it when it comes to explaining it. Within a few games you’ll basically understand it.

    I'm the same, pick up far more by watching and listening to the commentary especially

    Also, because the ref's are so * things often get explained :56:
