New York Jets

New York Jets

If the New York Jets fall in love with a quarterback in the 2018 NFL draft, they would be willing to trade up if they don’t think he’ll last until the sixth pick.

So says general manager Mike Maccagnan.

The question was posed to him Wednesday on the Humpty & Canty Show on ESPN New York 98.7, and he replied “yes” without hesitation.

“The simple answer to that question is yes,” Maccagnan said. “If that was a player we felt strong about, we would have no qualms of potentially trying to go up and get him.”

In three drafts, Maccagnan has yet to trade up in the first round, although he made inquiries in 2016. That’s the year quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz were selected one-two.

Maccagnan said he’d be interested in trading up for any position if he felt it was worth it, but we all know it’s apples and oranges when it comes to quarterbacks and other positions. By acknowledging he’s open to going up for a quarterback, Maccagnan is basically saying he’s willing to pay the enormous price it would take to make such a move.

How much are we talking about?

In 2016, the Philadelphia Eagles moved from eighth to second and it cost them their first-round pick in 2017 and their second-rounder in 2018, along with a couple of mid-round picks. They wound up with Wentz, so no one in Philadelphia is complaining.

The Jets probably would have to surrender a similar package to secure the first or second overall pick.

As for the actual players, the quarterback landscape still hasn’t been settled. Of the top prospects, Josh Allen (Wyoming) and Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma) are the only ones we know for sure will be in the draft. Sam Darnold (USC) and Josh Rosen (UCLA) have yet to declare their intentions. The deadline is Jan. 15.

Cheap Los Angeles Rams Jersey From China For Sale

SEATTLE — The Los Angeles Rams were a broken team the last time they played here, on Dec. 15, 2016. They were without a head coach and without a direction, their season fading to black while uncertainty surrounded both their quarterback and their future.

Sunday, 367 days after an uninspiring defeat from CenturyLink Field on national television, marked the unofficial completion of the Rams’ breathtaking turnaround. Amid gray skies and waning interest, they slayed the mighty Seattle Seahawks with a 42-7 dismantling and all but wrapped up a division title along the way.

Todd Gurley scored four of five Rams touchdowns and Aaron Donald recorded three of seven sacks on elusive Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who was brought down more often than he had been all season. The Rams are 10-4 now, an eternity removed from the 10 straight losing seasons they carried into 2017. They lead the Seahawks by two games in the NFC West with only two games remaining, their chances of at least hosting a playoff game now a probable outcome.

“Everything has changed,” Rodger Saffold, the Rams’ eighth-year offensive lineman, said. “Just the way this team plays; the way they feel.”

Through 14 weeks, the Rams were undoubtedly the best team in their division.

On the 15th week, they needed only the first two quarters to prove that definitively.

Before halftime, Gurley rushed for 144 yards — the most by any player in the first half this season — and Donald recorded six pressures. Thanks to their defense, which held the Seahawks to 59 yards on their first 27 plays, and Pharoh Cooper, who picked up 109 yards on his first four punt returns, the Rams began five first-half drives within enemy territory and went into the locker room with a 34-0 lead that was never threatened.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff said it “seemed like we were on the 50-yard line every time we went out there.”

The Rams lost to the Seahawks at home earlier this year, but they outgained them by 134 yards and were done in by five turnovers, most of which they could’ve easily avoided.

“We felt like we did not play to the capabilities that we thought were possible when we played them the last time, and I think there was a lot of anger between us,” Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “We really just felt very disappointed in ourselves in how we played the first time we played them, and really had a bunch of opportunities to win that game and just didn’t. I think that meant a lot to us to really have that opportunity and go get it. I think guys felt that all week. There was an emotion behind that all week, and it showed today.”

The Rams started the game by forcing an opening-drive turnover for the seventh time this season, using a Tanner McEvoy fumble to set up a field goal. A Seahawks three-and-out led to a second field goal by Greg Zuerlein, who is on pace for a scoring record. Cooper returned Seattle’s second punt 53 yards to the 1-yard line, paving the way for an easy touchdown run by Gurley. Cooper returned another one 26 yards, sparking a five-play, 36-yard drive that ended in another one-yard run by Gurley.

The Seahawks finally reached Rams territory at the seven-minute mark of the second quarter. But Wilson lost 13 yards on the ensuing play and fumbled the football, setting up another touchdown drive that ended in a 1-yard pass from Goff to Robert Woods, who had missed the previous three games with a sprained left shoulder.

After the Seahawks punted for the fifth time of the first half, Gurley sealed it. He took a handoff to the left and zipped past the entire Seahawks defense, sprinting 57 yards untouched for the 16th of his NFL-leading 17 touchdowns this season.

“We didn’t want to let up,” Gurley said. “These guys have been kicking our ass for the last 10, 15 years. You have to enjoy it. You have to take advantage of the situation.”

Gurley recorded the first four-touchdown game in the NFL since 2015 with a 14-yard reception in the flat with more than 22 minutes remaining.

By the final seconds of the third quarter, CenturyLink Field — a house of horrors for many an NFL team this decade — was half full and stunningly quiet. By the fourth, the Rams had pulled most of their starters from a game that had quickly become more contentious than competitive.

The Seahawks have made five consecutive trips to the playoffs and have won the NFC West three out of the past four seasons. But the Rams, who have yet to lose back-to-back games this season, can now clinch a division title with their next win or Seahawks loss. The Rams were 4-12 in 2016 and last in every important offensive category in what became Jeff Fisher’s final year as their head coach. But now they lead the NFL in point differential and sit as the No. 3 seed in their conference.

It’s been one year since their last trip to Seattle, but everything is different now.

“That definitely feels like a while ago,” Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner said. “Out of sight, out of mind.”

Baltimore Ravens

A little more than a month ago, the Ravens stood 2-0 with perhaps the best defense in football and robust hopes for the rest of the 2017 season.

The ensuing weeks have not been kind, however, with John Harbaugh’s team dropping four of five games and a different problem emerging in each loss. As they prepare to host the Miami Dolphins in prime time Thursday before a national TV audience with CBS’ No. 1 broadcast crew, the Ravens are searching for answers on both offense and defense. Their home-field advantage has been nonexistent, and ticket holders left blocks of seats empty the last time the Ravens played at M&T Bank Stadium. If the Ravens don’t right their ship quickly, they could fall out of postseason contention for the third year in a row and the fourth time in five seasons.

The offense, debilitated by injuries to key linemen and receivers, has fallen short of subterranean preseason predictions, ranking 31st in the league in yards per game. That’s down from 17th last year, when it was already viewed as a toothless attack.

The more startling downturn has occurred on the other side of the ball, where the Ravens’ historically stingy run defense is allowing more rushing yards per game than any other team in the league. The Ravens ranked fifth in the league in rush defense last year and have fallen out of the top half of the league just once in Harbaugh’s 10-year tenure.

That hasn’t been the only blow to the team’s core identity. The Ravens have traditionally held one of the strongest home-field advantages in the NFL. But they’ve lost two of three games at M&T Bank Stadium this year, one a 26-9 stomping by the archrival Pittsburgh Steelers and the other a sloppy overtime loss to the Chicago Bears, who came to town 1-4. Chicago’s Mitchell Trubisky became the first rookie quarterback ever to beat a Harbaugh team in Baltimore.

Also at the Bears game, an unusual number of seats remained empty, a reality not reflected by the announced sellout crowd of 70,616.

Despite all the bleak tidings, the Ravens do not sound like a team on the verge of crisis.

At an appearance in Ocean City last week, owner Steve Bisciotti said of Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome: “I don’t think they’re doing anything wrong.”

The dean of the locker room, linebacker Terrell Suggs, said the team’s defense can still be “magical.”

“You want to be good. You want to dominate everywhere, every facet of the game,” Suggs said at his locker Tuesday. “Now, we’ve just got to tighten the screws a little bit. We’ve just got to stop the leakage. We’re not hitting the panic button just yet. We’ll be all right.”

Suggs also said “there is no stadium like M&T,” a vote of confidence in a home crowd that hasn’t always filled the seating bowl and that booed the Ravens after they knelt in prayer before the national anthem in Week 4.

The organization is concerned about waning fan enthusiasm after two consecutive home losses and two straight years not making the playoffs. Empty seats are always more likely in such scenarios, said team president Dick Cass.

“There’s no question we tend to see more no-shows in years when the on-field performance is disappointing to our fans,” Cass said. “You always worry when you sell a ticket and the buyer doesn’t see it as worthwhile to come to the game. That might mean they’re less likely to want to buy season tickets in the future.”

Cass said he’s recently talked to fans who are worried the team won’t reverse its fortunes this season. He’s prepared to see more empty seats Thursday night, because many fans aren’t fond of late games, even under the best circumstances.

The Ravens are fortified by the fact that most of their fan base is locked in to permanent seat licenses and season-ticket plans. That means reported attendance is unlikely to decline. They’ve also still sold more general-admission tickets this season than all but three other NFL teams.

But data from the secondary-ticket market supports concerns about reduced interest.

The $158 average asking price for tickets on the secondary market is down 22.5 percent from the beginning of this season alone, according to TicketIQ, a New York-based company that monitors the market. More strikingly, the average asking price has hit a six-year low, down 46 percent from a peak of $293 in 2013. The average price for tickets to Thursday’s game is $137, the lowest of the team’s remaining home games.

Cass said prices inevitably fall when the team’s not playing well. “So far, knock on wood, it hasn’t affected our season-ticket sales,” he said.

The home crowd has traditionally maintained a symbiotic relationship with a defense that has given the franchise its identity since the Ravens’ first Super Bowl season in 2000.

From the front office down to the players, the Ravens thought they might field another historically good defense in 2017. They re-signed defensive tackle Brandon Williams and brought in veteran defensive backs Tony Jefferson and Brandon Carr in the offseason. They devoted their draft to making the defense younger, faster and more dangerous to opposing quarterbacks.

That effort appeared to be paying off when the Ravens forced 10 turnovers and allowed just 10 points over their first two games. But their performance has eroded over the past five games, especially against the run. A 100-yard rushing day used to be a scarce commodity against the Baltimore defense. In the Ravens’ past three losses, however, Steelers star Le’Veon Bell ran for 144 yards, Jordan Howard of the Bears ran for 167 and Minnesota’s Latavius Murray ran for 113.

Williams, the Ravens’ best interior defender, missed four games with a foot injury. Even with him back in the lineup, the Ravens allowed the Vikings to run for 5.1 yards per carry Sunday.

Beyond their struggles against the run, the Ravens have lost to a rookie quarterback in Trubisky, a backup in Minnesota’s Case Keenum and one of the NFL’s most maligned starters in Blake Bortles of the Jacksonville Jaguars. They’ll face another backup Thursday in the Dolphins’ Matt Moore.
