Report: Washington cheerleaders experienced strange Costa Rica trip
They weren’t putting a gun to our heads, but it was mandatory for us to go,” one of the cheerleaders told the Times. “We weren’t asked, we were told. Other girls were devastated because we knew exactly what she was doing.”

While no sexual favors were involved, some of the cheerleaders believed that the squad was “pimping us out.” The team denies the allegations.

The attorney for Robby Anderson says he received "no notice" Anderson was to appear in court on Tuesday, and called the subsequent warrant for Anderson's arrest "craziness."

"Robby did not do anything wrong," the lawyer added. "It's not like he just said, 'No, I'm not going to court.' Believe me. I didn't go to court, either. Because nobody knew to be there." Anderson was arrested on January 19 for running two red lights and allegedly doing 105 MPH in a 45 MPH zone while fleeing police. When pulled over, Anderson allegedly told the arresting officer he was going to "f--k" the policeman's wife and "n-t in her eye."

Journeyman qbs usually make better coaches and analysts I'm not surprised at all definitely has a future in broadcasting or coaching played 12 years in the NFL with different offense, people can say he wasn't a very good qb but they cannot say that he isn't knowledgable about the qb position.

http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york-jets/post/_/id/76052/the-jets-fell-head-over-heels-for-sam-darnold-then-agonized

It's long and I don't wanna quote the whole thing so I'm clipping some interesting bits from it.

Oct. 27, 2016: During pregame warm-ups, Maccagnan struck up a conversation with a member of the USC coaching staff. Unsolicited, the staff member started gushing about the 19-year-old quarterback who saved their season. The Trojans started 1-2, changed quarterbacks and now they were riding a three-game winning streak with the precocious Darnold in charge. You're going to want this kid in a year or two, the guy told him.

Maccagnan had heard of Darnold, but he really didn't know much about him. Now he was getting an earful from the staffer, who went on and on about Darnold -- how he dominated as the scout-team quarterback and how, upon his promotion, he got the entire team to believe in him in a short period of time.

Scouts live for this kind of intel, so Maccagnan filed it away in his memory bank. He returned to the business at hand, scouting Webb, but he couldn't help notice Darnold that night. He threw five touchdown passes in USC's 45-24 victory.


Sept. 9: Maccagnan returned to Los Angeles to watch USC in a prime-time game against Stanford. As usual, he sat in the stands, not the press box, giving him an up-close view of the action. He bought a ticket behind the USC bench to observe what can't be seen on TV: player interaction on the bench, body language and body build.

Most talent evaluators prefer the eye-in-the-sky perspective, but Maccagnan believes he can learn more about players from the ground level. Are they one of the guys? How do they handle adversity? On this night, he saw Darnold working the bench, congratulating teammates after big plays and providing energy in his California-cool kind of way. He threw four touchdowns against a tough defense, leading USC to a 42-24 win.

Afterward, Maccagnan took a red-eye so he could attend the Jets' season opener in Buffalo.


April 15: After weeks of trying, the Jets finally were able to arrange a private workout with Darnold. Incredibly, it managed to stay a secret until after the draft. It never got reported. Maccagnan, Bowles, Bates and director of college scouting Matt Bazirgan flew to Los Angeles and managed to conduct an early-morning workout on campus. No spectators, no media. Three wide receivers and a tight end ran routes for Darnold, who once again shined. Afterward, they went inside and talked ball for a couple of hours.

Once again, the Jets left campus with a hollow feeling: Was this all for naught?


Sounds like they were putting a LOT of scouting on all of the QB's and stayed enamored with Darnold from jump.

Falcons signed QB Matt Ryan to a six-year, $169.25 million contract through 2023.

That's $28.2 million per year, but it's $30 million per year during the extension seasons. That's a threshold that had previously never been crossed in the NFL, and rarely even in other North American sports. It will soon become routine for quarterbacks. Ryan produced as many turnovers as touchdowns in 2015 before his stunning MVP campaign in 2016. He was somewhere in between in 2017. Two weeks shy of his 33rd birthday, Ryan should still have multiple years left of potential elite play. Emphasis on "potential." Ryan sometimes needs to be elevated instead of doing the elevating himself. He has a new No. 2 receiver for 2018 in first-rounder Calvin Ridley.

Christian Hackenberg - QB - Jets
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Christian Hackenberg has been working with quarterback guru Jeff Christensen, and that the duo has "had to start from scratch on (Hackenberg's) throwing motion."

Per Garofolo, Christensen has worked with Jimmy Garoppolo, Kirk Cousins and Ryan Tannehill, amongst others. He will apparently conduct "over 60 sessions" with Hack this offseason. The Jets opted to keep Hack over Bryce Petty even though Hack has never looked close to better on the preseason or practice field. Only Hack's second-round pedigree has kept him on the roster this long. It's ultimately unlikely to be enough to save his 53-man roster spot.
