What are some of the best music industry conspiracies?

What are some of the best conspiracies connected to the music industry? I'm interested in ones about music labels, artists and the industry in general. Some i can think of are: ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Michael Jackson vs $ony
Back in 2003 while doing an interview with the tv show 60 minutes, Michael Jackson claimed there was conspiracy against him by the music industry to suppress his music in the United States.
When he brought it up his lawyer quickly hushed him not to speak about it.
Jackson later spoke on it publicly unravelling the conspiracy.
Michael had a long standing fued with Sony due to Michael's remarks that they kill music and unfairly treat their artists.
Michael Jackson was looking to start a venture where artists would own their art and be paid what they are due for it.
Michael showed up to press conferences with signs which read "$ony Sucks" and "$ony kills music".
Michael Jackson announced in 2002 he was leaving Sony, after this he started feuding with them because they would not give him his master records.
Master records are the original audio which every other copy is created.
He openly accused Tommy Mottola, President of Sony in 2002, that he deliberately sabotaged his album Invincible. Invincible was released in 2001 and sold about 10–13 million albums worldwide.
It topped in 13 countries but not in the US. It was thus considered a flop. Invincible was the top selling album then and 2001 was a very difficult time for the music industry as due to the events which occurred in the later half of the year most of the world was focused on the media storm of 9/11.
Sony sued Michael for the album’s failure in the pretext that he refused to go on a US tour to promote it after accusing them of sabotaging his album. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________ P.Diddy put a hit on Tupac for $1,000,000
A few months after Tupac was killed in Las Vegas after being shot in a drive-by shooting while travelling in a BMW, Puff Daddy recorded this song with the lyrics being, "we got hits that will re-arrange your whole set and got a benz that i ain't even drove yet." It's believed this was an indirect diss toward Tupac hinting that he was responsible for getting him killed.
This isn't the only song Puffy has boasted about it.
On Black Rob's song Muscle Game released in 2000 Puffy says "Fuck with me i'll put a million dollars on your head".
One of the co-conspirators in the death of Tupac claimed he met up with Puffy in a restaurant in L.A. where Puffy asked how much would it cost to get rid of him and he was told a million dollars.
Somewhere between 1992 & 1993 Puff Daddy threw a party for black entertainment television known as BET at a club in Santa Monica in California.
While there Busta Rhymes almost got into a fight with Southside Compton Crip Keffe D, after the close fight Keffe D started speaking to Puffy and the two became acquainted.
Puffy kept in contact with Keffe D although he denied publicly that he ever knew him.
Keffe D and the southside crips started to supply security to Puffy while he was in L.A.
On March 29th, 1996 the Soul Train Music Awards was held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.
Death Row and Bad Boy attended the event, the South Side crips were supplying security for Bad Boy.
An altercation occurred between Tupac, Biggie, Suge Knight and Junior Mafia, a gun was then drawn by Biggie's friend C-Gutter. Security stopped the altercation before anything serious happened.
After this incident Puffy's former bodyguard called Eugene Deal claimed he heard Puffy shout out of frustration "i dont care if pac gotta die, i don't care if big gotta die, i don't care if Suge Knight gotta go to jail". Video (14 minutes 20 seconds in)
In May of 1996 Suge Knight gave Tupac the order to create a diss track aimed towards Bad Boy this spawned the infamous track "Hit Em Up" in the track Tupac called for death towards Bad Boy and East Coast rappers and also claimed to have sex with Biggies wife Faith Evans.
The music video included impersonators of biggie, puffy and Junior Mafia artist Lil Kim.
The diss track was released on June 4th 1996.
In the summer of 1996, some time between July and August, Suge Knights friend and Death Row affiliate Trayvon Lane had his death row chained snatched from his neck while in a Footlocker store in the Lakewood Mall in California. Trayvon Lane was a Piru Blood he had his chain taken by a south side crip called Orlando Anderson who was Keffe D's nephew.
There was a rumour that Puffy had put a 10,000 dollar bounty on Death Row chains as he wanted to include them in a music video.
In the summer of 1996 Southside crip Keffe D claimed he met Puffy at the GreenBlatts deli in Los Angeles, while there Keffe D claimed Puffy allegedly put a hit out on Tupac and Suge Knight.
Keffe D claimed Puffy asked how much it would cost, to which Keffe asked for a million dollars.
On September 7th 1996 Tupac Shakur and Suge Knight along with Death Row went to las vegas to watch a Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand, after the fight while in the lobby Blood gang member and Death Row associate Trevon Lane pointed out southside crip Orlando Anderson to Tupac.
Tupac attacked Orlando Anderson and Death Row associates then jumped him.
After the fight in the MGM Grand Tupac went back to his hotel room and changed clothes, him and some members of his group the outlawz along with his bodyguard Frank Alexander then went to Suge Knight's house in Vegas.
During this time the southside crips who were with Orlando Anderson were eating at a restaurant in the mgm grand, this included Keffe D Orlando Anderson's uncle.
Keffe D claimed at the restaurant were also New Yorkers and Eric Zip Martin a New York drug trafficker who introduced Keffe D to Puffy.
Keffe D claims someone came over to their table to tell them that Death Row and the bloods had just beaten up Orlando Anderson.
Keffe D claims Zip who knew about the million dollar bounty then said to Keffe D it was the perfect opportunity to kill them.
Keffe D claimed Zip then got a glock from his Mercedes and gave it to Keffe D.
Two vehicles then drove to the 662 club waiting for Tupac and Suge Knight to arrive as Tupac was set to perform there.
After it took a while for them to show up the cars left and drove to a liquor store.
After this, Keffe D, Orlando Anderson, Terrence Brown and Deandrae Smith got into a white Cadillac rented by Terrence Brown's mother-in-law.
They then drove around Las Vegas looking for Tupac and Suge Knight.
They then heard women screaming out Tupac's name and saw him standing out the sun roof of Suge Knight's BMW.
At 11:15 p.m. while stopped at a red light on East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane a white, Keffe D claimed they pulled up beside the BMW and Keffe D gave the glock to Orlando Anderson to which he leaned out the window and fired into the car hitting Tupac four times and Suge Knight once in the head.
The car then drove off and was chased by Suge Knights personal security blood gang members who opened fire on them.
They then escaped in the Cadillac parking it just a mile away from the scene.
6 days after the shooting Tupac died in hospital after his mother took him off life support.
Following the shooting the New Yorkers who were at the restaurant with Keffe D told Puffy's bodyguard Eugene Deal what went down in Las Vegas.
Yafeu Fuela who was Tupac's cousins who witnessed the shooting claimed he saw that the driver was wearing a white cap, Terrence brown who was the driver could be seen wearing a white cap in a photo taken shortly before the vegas trip.
The day after the shooting Keffe D and the southside crips returned to Los Angeles, while there Zip called him and asked him to meet at a restaurant.
While there Keffe D claimed Puffy called Zip and asked "Was that us", Zip told him it was.
He claimed Biggie Smalls wife faith evans called Zip too and asked was it them that done it.
Zip claimed he then told Keffe D he is going back to New York to get the money and he will bring it back.
6 weeks passed and Keffe D got no response from Zip.
He then met with Zip and Zip claimed he didn't receive any money.
It was later claimed that Puffy had given Zip 500,000 dollars but Zip kept it for himself.
An F.B.I. investigation into the case claimed Zip used the money to buy a nightclub.
Following this Keffe D never heard from Puffy again, as for Zip he tried to set him up in a police bust.
This investigation was carried out by LAPD cop Greg Kading who had Keffe D's confession on tape.
An investigation was also carried out by the F.B.I. who also questioned Keffe D.
Both agencies believe this is what went down behind Tupac Shakur's murder.
The F.B.I. claimed Puffy only ended up paying $500,000 dollars for the hit, also undercover F.B.I. agent Kevin Hackie claimed the F.B.I. knew for certain that Orlando Anderson was the shooter and even had the killing on tape.
LAPD Detective Greg Kading claims the F.B.I. and LAPD know that Puffy paid for the hit however they won't take action due to his celebrity profile because of the media attention that would come with it. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________ F.B.I. reveal dirty LAPD cops killed Biggie
After Biggie Smalls death the F.B.I. investigated it and released their papers online.
They claimed the trigger man was a LAPD officer called David Mack.
Russell Poole was a LAPD detective who was the lead investigator for the murder of Biggie Smalls, from his findings he claimed Death Row Records head of security former Compton cop Reggie Wright Jr employed crooked Cops from the LAPD Rampart Divison to work for $75 dollars an hour.
A police report by Russell Poole stated some of these cops were David Mack, Rafael Perez and Kevin Gaines
Suge Knight went on record claiming that he didn't know any of the crooked cops and that Reggie Wright jr knew them.
A man by the name of Kenneth Boagni was arrested for a robbery and afterwards testified during the rampart scandal, he claimed to of been a cell mate of Raphael Perez.
Rapheal Perez was an LAPD officer and a main person invovled in the Rampart Scandal.
Kenneth Boagni claimed Rapheal Perez told him on the night Biggie was killed Rapheal was at the museum providing security for Death Row Records.
He claimed David Mack was with him.
Kenneth claimed on the television show "Who shot biggie & tupac" that Rapheal Perez told him shortly after Tupac was killed in September of 1996, David Mack was informed to get someone to quote "do what the boss wanted done".
This boss could of mean't the head of Death Row Records Suge Knight or David Mack's alleged employer Reggie Wright Jr.
Kenneth Boagni also testified in court, he was an informant who helped exonerate 5 police officers in the past.
His statement became known as "The Million Dollar Testimony", this was as the testimony was buried by the LAPD and as a result the judge in a 400 million dollar wrongful death lawsuit by Biggie's mother fined the city of Los Angeles 1.1 million dollars for suppressing the testimony.
In his testimony Kenneth claimed Raphael Perez told him Reggie Wright Junior and Death Row Records criminal defence attorney David Kenner allegedly set up a hit on both Sean “Puffy” Combs and Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace with the bounty being a million dollars.
The killer was allegedly paid $250,000 upfront and owing them $750,000 afterwards.
Kenneth Boagni claimed Raphael Perez told him Reggie Wright was like David Mack’s sidekick at the time of Biggies murder, Reggie Wright denied ever knowing David Mack.
According to Kenneth’s testimony, LAPD cop Kevin Gaines allegedly failed to intercept Puffy’s car as it ran a red light in front saving Puffy’s life.
This has been corroborated by Gene Deal as he was the person who told the driver to run the red light.
Kenneth stated that Reggie Wright Jr and David Kenner informed David Mack and Raphael Perez that they would not receive the $750,000 as the hit was for both Biggie and Puffy.
On November 6th 1997 David Mack, Raphael Perez and a person called Sammy Martin robbed a bank#Bank_robbery) of America near the university of Southern California. David used his girlfriend who worked at the bank to get him into the vault where he robbed $722,000, which still remains unaccounted for.
David Mack was arrested a month later after his girlfriend told authorities it was him that robbed the bank with her help.
When police searched David Mack’s home they found a black SS Chevy Impala matching the description of the shooters vehicle in the murder of biggie smalls, they also found bullets which matched the rare type used in the murder.
These bullets were buried under the floorboards of his house.
Phil Carson of the F.B.I was ready to make to make an arrest based on this information but his superiors told him to back off.
Russell Poole was also ready to make an arrest, however his superiors at the LAPD told him to back down and stop making allegations.
In 2015 Russell Poole died while at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, he died of a heart attack while discussing one of Suge Knight's cases.
In 2006 Greg Kading was hired to solve the Biggie Smalls murder so the wrongful death lawsuit of 400 million dollars against Los Angeles by Biggies mum could be dismissed.
He claimed that Russell Poole's findings of dirty cops had evidence but were not the suspects behind Biggies murder.
The F.B.I. papers online dispute Greg Kading's investigation claiming the murder was too intricate to be pulled off by gang members and that a large contingency of officers were invovled using police scanners and diversion to get away with it. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________
These are just some i know of, what are some more that are out there?

Annual Cowboys draft target post - 1st round

Hi guys. Fair warning: This post will be huge, just like the last year's one I did of this nature and I am sorry for that.
Here we are again. It's draftSZN boys and I'm back again with a Cowboys draft targets. Since we had no 1st round pick last year I decided to do full 7 round targets but this year since we have it I decided my post will contain the first 3 rounds full of players that at this point in the draft process have legitimate chance to be there when we are picking at 17, 51 and 82 and that Cowboys might be interested in. However if you guys are interested in later round prospects I will do another post for day 3 players which will probably end up being bigger than this one so please don't make me do it.
First off, it is exciting to know that we don't know what Cowboys are going to do this year in the draft, as a fan. We knew in the last couple of years that we won't be drafting NTs or safeties high, we knew what kind of players Rod Marinelli perfers, we knew what kind of high character guys Garrett prefered so we could look at team captains as possible targets etc.
We know nothing about the Cowboys process this year so I will be listing EVERY position that I think Cowboys could draft in the first 3 rounds. I will also say that I will not include QB targets and RB targets unless they are a flex type players like Tony Pollard (which there will be 2). Reason for that is that I simply believe we are going to keep Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott is on the highest paying contract for a RB so I believe these positions would be redundant to draft in the first 3 rounds. Everything besides that, players that I believe have a legitimate chance of being there at this point in the process, I will list there and I will make a brief summary of what kind of player you guys can expect that player to be if they are to be drafted by the Cowboys. I also have to put a disclaimer that this is a TAPE evaluation so the grading will obviously not be finilized and as the combine and pro days begin the draft stock of some of these players will inevitably either increase or decrease so that they might become a realistic option at some picks or a reach for another. This post is mainly (mostly) about evaluating fooball players playing football which is imo the most important part. Also a disclaimer, i watch all-22 tape for most prospects, I watched 2018 tape before the season of all these guys and I watch youtube cut ups for evaluation too.
Let's get started
Strengths: Great possession receiver, catch radius, big body receiver at 6'4“, 215, can become a true #1 option, deceptive athleticism, great at the catch point, very steady and reliable, strong hands, adjusts to the ball well in flight, shows some route running ability for a big frame receiver, jump ball threat, downfield threat, handfights at LOS very well, comes up huge in some of the biggest games he plays in, shows YAC ability.
Weaknesses: Athletic testing will be a big thing for him to show he has the neccessary long speed, needs to continue working on his route running and develop a full route tree, does not create separation all the time with his route running or with his athleticism that might cause QB in the NFL to be perfect but this is partially negated by his strong hands and huge catch radius and overall ball skills.
Bottom line: Higgins is as steady as they come. What you throw his direction, he will almost certainly catch. He will get most out of it too. Athletic testing will be big for him. He just has to show he has enough speed to be a downfield threat in the NFL. He plays for one of the biggest programs in CFB and he's delivering over and over again. Productive, decently well rounded, Higgins is a very reliable and good receiver. He doesn't have the speed Ruggs has and he isn't electric with the ball in his hands like Lamb or Shenault are and he doesn't run routes like Jeudy does, but he does all the little things that WRs need to do well and he isn't deficient in any category (baring athletic testing).
Strengths: Different type of elite speed, type of speed that scares oposition into bailing most of the time and having safety help over the top all the time, big play threat every time he's targeted, very good feel with ball in his hands to find an open crease, kills pursuit angles, reliable receiver, plays hard even when not targeted, valuable asset as a future punt returner, shows neccessary skillset to become even better route runner, improved as a route runner in 2019, shows tenacity and willingness to be a downfield blocker, can play inside and outside
Weaknesses: Slim build, has trouble separating against stronger players that jam his release at the LOS, needs to improve his releases so that he can take full advantage of his explosive ability, projects more into a Z receiver in the NFL than a true X, even tho he is improved as a route runner he still has much room to grow as the nuances of the route tree escape him at the moment and the routes he is running curently are limited mostly to crossers, go routes and gimmicky plays.
Bottom line: With Ruggs, it's all about the speed. He has room to grow as a receiver but as an athlete, he is certainly as one of the most explosive players in this draft class. He is almost impossible to catch when he has space to operate. There's speed and then there's Henry Ruggs speed. He also shows neccessary ability to become an even better and more nuanced route runner on tape like release footwork that can be good but inconsistent, nod at the top of the route to leverage the defender in the direction he wants him to go, putting his foot in the ground and breaking sharply, stop-start quickness, threatening with speed and lowering his hips to create separation on stop routes etc. He will be a valuable player for a team in the NFL, especially as a match up nightmare out of slot and as a punt returner.
Strengths: Dynamic playmaker, value as a punt and kickoff returner, hard to bring down with arm tackles, can be an electric player that can take over games with his ability, big body throwback to a real #1 WR type, very good with ball in his hands, explosive in and out of his breaks, tracks the ball well in the air, attacks the ball, big play threat and downfield threat, can be utilized a lot of different ways, can play all over the formation even as a RB, can play outside and inside, very good change of direction skills considering his body type, very good slant runner.
Weaknesses: Medical history is a cause for concern, needs to continue developing as route runner, needs to develop his route tree (mainly running slants, go's, screens, crossers), needs to continue developing his releases, I'd like him to be even more physical with his big body at the catch point and bully smaller CBs, needs to continue running his route and not quit mid play at times, production dropped in 2019.
Bottom line: Shenault is an interesting prospect. He's a true body type of a traditional #1 WR. He is an explosive athlete that shows at times why he can become much more than that. Moves really well for his size, has very good YAC ability, can play multiple positions. Shenault is going to be a chess piece for some offensive coordinator. He had a better 2018 and has regressed a little bit in 2019, especially production wise. He is still the type of player NFL coaches love and will see and say that they can mold into something special. He has the talent and the ability but he is far from a finished product. Especially as a route runner, outside of few flashes of brilliance, he is limited in his route tree, his releases and nuances of the route running but he shows flashes in all areas. He is a bigger CeeDee Lamb as they are a similar type of WR to me. He has been hurt in his career and that is a cause for concern.
As far as TE class goes, I believe there isn't one worth taking at 17. My TE1 at this point in process is Adam Trautman, Dayton, a small school guy that has amazing tape. He has a grade of late 1st/early 2nd but I think picking a TE this high in this class is a reach and not a smart choice.
Strengths: Giant tackle at 6'7“, 370, great feet. Period. And when taken into account how big he is then it is even more impressive how smooth he is, pass set that gets depth with one or two steps when other tackles need 4 or 5, overpowering in both running game and as a pass blocker, arms are so long that the rushers can't even hope to get close to his chest most of the time, good in space, played very well against the best competition he faced, brute strength in his anchor, extremely hard to get past for pass rushers because of the size and his apparent athletic ability, played both tackle positions for the Cardinals.
Weaknesses: Sometimes he's at a natural leverage disadvantage because of his size, even tho he has improved in cutting down the bad weight he still has some and will need to monitor his weight going forward, can be a bit top heavy, if the rushers are attacking bellow the waist that is the only time he really gives ground, he is sometimes guilty of stalling as a run blocker when he should finish the job, can fire hands late in run game and go belly to belly.
Bottom line: I am in awe of Becton in 2019. When I initially watched his 2018 tape I thought he was good (2nd round grade) but the games I watched in 2019 absolutely solidified him as a 1st round prospect for me. People this big should not be able to move like Becton does. He has shed some bad weight and is continuing to progress in that regard and his athletic ability skyrocked this year. He is smooth, has great set that is extremely hard to get past by the shere size of the body the rusher has to get through, has extremely long arms that if he uses properly (and he mostly does) give rushers NO chance of getting into his chest. I think Becton will end up as the biggest riser in this draft class and I absolutely love his tape. The only way he could drop is if he has a Orlando Brown showing at the combine which I don't anticipate being the case. I believe in Becton as an absolute plug and play player at the LT day 1 in the NFL and even if he isn't starting at the LT I absolutely can see him staring at RT or either G position with the strength he possesses. One of my favourite prospects to watch this whole draft cycle.
Strengths: Elite size and length at 6'6, 310lbs, pass rush, variety of pass rush moves, easy mover for a huge player, violent player, very good hand fighter, wins with his first step explosion and quickness and is going to be up the field penetrating 3T made in heaven for an NFL team, disruptive player that leaves his mark in the run game with the havoc he creates with the backfield penetration, can absolutely blast players not ready for the amount of power he has in his hands, blew up the senior bowl with his play before getting hurt
Weaknesses: Medical questions popping up (knee), gap discipline can be poor at times, can get pushed over in the run game if he doesn't win with his explosive first step, needs to be more disciplined in his rush at times creating huge lanes behind him to be abused by screens or misdirection plays, when facing smaller players that have natural leverage advantage over him he struggled at times at the senior bowl.
Bottom line: Kinlaw is the best pass rushing DT at the top of the draft. Not as stout as Brown in the run game, Kinlaw still possesses variety of pass rush moves to get to the QB which is the most important thing in today's NFL. He is a chaos player but he thrives in it. His pad level does not get too much out of order when he is creating chaos so he is very hard to stop. Very comparable to Brown, for me, and it's basically matter of preference on who is the best DT in this class.
Strengths: Explosive athlete, possesses natural bending ability needed for a ROLB/RDE in the NFL, true OLB that looks comfortable dropping in coverage, skilled pass rusher that uses handful of techniques, great swipe move, good long arm move, uses speed to power, plays with some violence in his hands during the rush and in the run game, disciplined, shows some great dip ability even in the run game to avoid the blocker, able to win with his first step and to turn the corner, has a great counter spin move that he should use more often, shows proper strength at the point of attack in the run game, shows himself rushing with his hand down so he will help himself with 4-3 teams.
Weaknesses: One year of production, can be overreliant on his favourite pass rush move forgetting to implement plan B, is not going to be a fit for every team because he's probably best suited as a true OLB, needs to bulk up a bit if he wants to become a true 4-3 DE as he is undersized for it at the moment, need him to be consistent at using counter moves if his primary move isn't working.
Bottom line: Chaisson is an incredible athlete that is nowhere near a finished product. He is explosive, disruptive, hard to contain OLB that is going to have to add some weight if he is to be coveted by 4-3 teams at the top of the draft. Sky is the limit for the potential Chaisson has. Should get used more as a rusher in the NFL even tho he is comfortable dropping in coverage and has done so for LSU. Athleticism and explosiveness are elite.
Strengths: Huge prototypical 4-3 DE frame at 6'7“, 280lbs, powerful in his pass rush, quick and deep first step, very good ball get off for his size, his best move is the hump move or a one/two handed swipe, probably enough bend for his huge frame, can take over games if he is on, very productive and rivaling Young in that aspect, he has the tools and the frame to be reduced inside to a pass rushing 3T on passing downs.
Weaknesses: Does not possess elite bend to be a true RDE of highest caliber in the NFL, his combine testing numbers will be fascinating to see as I don't expect him to be a great tester, can take plays off and coast at times, can get overpowered at the point of attack in the run game even with his huge frame, has trouble finding the ball on zone read or misdirection concepts, not going to be coveted by all teams because of his enormous size and inability to play as a stand up rusher.
Bottom line: Epenesa is a physical specimen that is very polarizing to me. He is absolutely amazing one play and the other play he gets stonewalled by a chipping RB or a TE. He needs to be fully unlocked by great coaching it feels like. He is probably best suited for a LDE role in the NFL (to start off) and to switch inside to a 3T on passing downs even tho he has exclusively played RDE at Iowa but he has went inside to rush from 3T too and the speed he has against guards is a weapon NFL teams have to utilize. His bending ability could be good enough for a RDE at the NFL level but i wouldn't bet on it.
Strengths: Coaches rave about him as a person, productive career¸with 8 sacks in each of last 2 years, still young and growing, prototypical body for a 4-3 DE at 6'5“, 265, shows enough functional strength to be reduced inside as a 3T on passing downs, shows good hands and hand placement on the rush and understands how to beat his blocker, has a plan when rushing, retraces his steps well to get to the QB, good in the run game, shows adequate strength at the point of attack, rose to the occasion against the best competition he faced, anticipates runs well slicing double teams and causing backfield disruption, plays hard and plays with effort basically every snap.
Weaknesses: Less natural bend ability than some higher rated prospects, not elite in his first step quickness, QBs can escape his grasp at times so grip strength might be questionable, prototypical 4-3 DE frame so he is not going to be a fit for every team even tho he has shown rushing from 2 point stance, can get too up the field leaving his back exposed for draws or misdirection plays, pad level can be a problem at times as he stands up straight in his rush at times.
Bottom line: Gross-Matos is a steady DE prospect that is going to be high on many draft boards for 4-3 teams. He's productive, he's a prototype DE, he's strong and long and he plays the run well. He shows the ability to use his hands to win on a rush, he isn't too explosive or quick but he is quick enough for his size. Shows more bend than Epenesa but is not the mauler in his pass rush that Epenesa is but those two prospects are similar for me. Very few truly negative plays from him on tape and the team that gets him is going to love him as a player and as a person.
Strengths: Very versatile corner that show coverage skills in both man and in zone coverage, reacts to QBs eyes well and makes plays on the ball, has a feeling on how to move inside of his zone and how to retrace his steps to make the play, very sticky in man coverage and doesn't allow much separation at all, fluid athlete with very good reactive athleticism, covering and stay in phase with WRs comes easy to him, turns his head around and plays the ball, very few instances of negative plays on tape I watched where he is truly out of position and beat, very steady player, some of the quickest feet to mirror WR movement I've seen in this class, a willing tackler.
Weaknesses: When in press man can miss with the jab and get himself in trouble that way, arm length is a question mark that he has to answer as it is apparent at times when fighting for the ball at catch point or at the LOS trying to get into WRs chest.
Bottom line: I love Jeff Gladney as a prospect and I am probably much higher on him than anyone else. I think his tape is 2nd only to Okudah and his skills are immense. I believe he is still severely underrated even tho he is starting to generate buzz int he draft community. He has the ability to play in multiple spots, in multiple coverages and play them all at a high level. If arm length at the combine comes in okay, that will cement him as my CB2 in the pre-draft process. He has less negative plays than both Diggs and Fulton, he is more versatile, he has better foot quickness and ability to mirror and stay in phase than Diggs and rivals that of Fulton. Gladney is just my preference as a more complete player for CB2.
Strengths: Big and long corner, extremely physical and aggressive, there are snaps where he completely knocks the oposing WR off his route before he even releases, very good ball skills, tracks the ball in the air like a receiver, willing tackler, for a corner of his size he changes direction exceptionally well, uses his offhand to stay connected to the receiver without drawing a penalty very well, looks for the ball and most of the time finds it, with his physical style of play he often reroutes receivers into the sideline and uses the sideline to his advantage well, gets in the receivers head at times with how hard he jabs at the line.
Weaknesses: Needs to work on his tackling technique, his playing technique that he is being taught leaves him open to back shoulder throws where he allowed biggest plays on tape, if he misses with his initial jab in press man he tends to panic for no reason because he has enough catch up speed to catch most WRs, injuries played a part in his career and it needs monitoring, can let a lot of receivers get past him but his athleticism shines to catch them.
Bottom line: Trevon Diggs is a 6'2“, 207lb monstrous Alabama corner that is going to be the dream get for some press man and cover 3 man NFL teams. He is aggressive, extremely physical with the WRs he is facing and does not allow much separation. Only times he really gets beat is on great throws or great catches. If his medical checks out, he is a first round talent.
Strengths: Extremely fluid and mirrors receivers with ease, very under control in coverage and breaks up passes with ease, does not allow much separation and if he does his catch up speed is very apparent, elite movement in his hips and ankles that allows him to stay in phase with some of the best route runners in this class, click and close is remarkable, breaks on the ball like a FS when he recognizes the route patterns, built well at 6'0, 200lbs, equally equipped to play in man or zone defenses.
Weaknesses: Can get overpowered at times by bigger receivers at the catch point or at the LOS, wants no part of being a tackler or being in run support, biggest issue with Kristian Fulton comes from his off the field issues that left him suspended for a year in 2018, ball skills are somewhat lacking.
Bottom line: Basically the only real problem with Kristian Fulton is which NFL team will trust him and his ball skills. His pure coverage skills probably rival Jeff Okudah. Because of the known off the field issues my grade is lower but for his on field play Fulton has a legitimate case for being 2nd most talented corner in this class.
Strengths: Range, explosive athlete, ability to click and close like a corner and absolutely blow up players, ability to read QBs eyes, extremely productive 2019 with 7 INTs, ballhawking FS that has the ability to play all over the field, not affraid to hit and to tackle, heat seaking missile in the run game and when closing to tackle, makes plays on the ball routinely, always around the ball and the ball finds him, the best 2019 tape from a safety, reminds of Earl Thomas with bodytype and with playstyle, even tho he is smaller player he is stoutly built.
Weaknesses: Athletic testing will be big because of the smaller stature, can get overpowered at times because of his size, can trust his eyes too much and get pulled in on playfakes, tackling technique needs work, questions about the long speed.
Bottom line: Winfield is a safety with the best overall tape in the 2020 class. He is a playmaker, absolute ballhawk, shows range over and over again and just continues to flash on tape. He is a player that I expect to rise if his athletic testing checks out well enough because the tape is just too good. He is best used as a centerfield FS type but I don't have questions about him even if he was played in a predominantly cover 2 teams or if he can play in the box even tho his size might limit him there.
Strengths: Physical player, hard hitter, very good in run support, takes good angles, diagnoses plays well, plays underneath coverage well, reacts to and reads screens very well, good blitzer, plus breaks on the ball, does his job most of the time, smart player that knows how to play a game and force players where he wants them to limit the potential damage, understands how to play the position very well, young and not done developing.
Weaknessses: Limited mostly to a box safety type, struggles in man coverage down the field at times, can come in too hot and miss a tackle, doesn't have enough range to play as a FS, doesn't possess extremely fluid hips so he gets turned around easily on deeper balls when he has to cover WRs, most missed tackles and blunders came against strongest competition in LSU.
Bottom line: McKinney is probably the safest bet at the top of the safety class this year. He probably doesn't have game changing potential that Delpit or Winfield are but he is a solid player if put in a position to succeed as a box safety in the NFL. Physically tough, NFL ready, comes from a great program and is certainly coached well, McKinney is a cerebral safety that is probably more of a sure thing to contribute than Delpit is at this point.
Strengths: Range, diagnoses plays fairly well, can play all over the formation but is best used as a FS, makes plus breaks on the ball on tape, had a very good 2018, ballhawking skills showing up in 2018 tape (5 INTs and 9 PBUs), plays as a single high, very good and sticky in man coverage, corner man cover skills, NFL frame at 6'3“ and 200lbs, not done developing, young (21), athletic enough to cover and carry WRs in coverage and big enough to match up with TEs.
Weaknesses: Missed tackles, big regression in play 2019, production dropped off in 2019 (2 INTs and 6 PBUs), durability concerns, whispers of not playing at full speed and saving his body for NFL, can bite on advanced passing concepts underneath leaving deep exposed, very bad game against Alabama in all aspects of safety play.
Bottom line: Which one is the real Grant Delpit? Although he showed some flashes of his 2018 tape this year, he has regressed heavily in his play. Missed tackles are the biggest concern as he has one of the highest % of missed tackles in the CFB. If he can play like in 2018 he is an elite prospect. 2019, he is not first round worthy.
I have to make a disclaimer that basically every CB and S on this list for the first round would be somewhat of a reach for me at 17 but I'd understand if any one of them was the Cowboys choice

[Game Preview] Week 6 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-2) at Minnesota Vikings (3-2)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-2) at Minnesota (3-2)
The Eagles will look to take momentum gained from the last two wins into a grueling October 3 game road trip which will start somewhere they had success in the past. The Eagles will make their first trip back to US Bank Stadium since they defeated the Patriots in Super Bowl 52 to give the Eagles their first Lombardi trophy. The Eagles number 1 ranked rush defense will be put to the test this week as they face the 3rd ranked rushing attack in the league led by Dalvin Cook. If they can limit Cook and put the Vikings in long 3rd downs the Eagles DL will need to keep up the pressure on the QB following their 10 sack performance against the New York Jets last week. The Vikings OL made improvement in the off-season to fix the OL woes from previous seasons, but it is still a weak spot on the team. If the Eagles are able to get pressure on Cousins and force him to turn the ball over it could be big in the field position game. Mike Zimmer continues to put out strong defenses in Minnesota and this year is no different. The Vikings defense in ranked in the top 10 in most statistical categories and the Eagles look once again to be without Desean Jackson who miss his 5th game following an explosive debut in week 1. With Desean’s absence look for the Eagles to try to establish the run early with Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders and use a lot of 12 man personnel with Ertz and Goedert. It seems like the Eagles and Vikings having been played on a yearly basis now with Pederson getting the edge over Zimmer 2-1. Zimmer will try to even that up this week in what looks to be a hard fought game. Go Birds!

Eagles 21 - Vikings 23
Kirk Cousins threw for 301 yards and one touchdown, Linval Joseph returned a fumble 64 yards for a score and the Minnesota Vikings beat the Philadelphia Eagles 23-21 Sunday in a rematch of the 2017 season's NFC championship game. It was an ugly game for the Eagles offense as the offensive line again struggled to protect Carson Wentz and get anything going as the defending Super Bowl champions fell to 2-3. The Eagles attempted to rally from a 17-point deficit midway through the third quarter and were in great position to take the lead Eagles following a Roc Thomas dropped a backward pass that was recovered by Nigel Bradham at the Vikings 30 in the fourth quarter. But the Eagles continued to shoot themselves in the foot with penalties and another Wentz sack forcing a 4th and 20 with Doug Pederson electing not to let Jake Elliott try a 58-yarder. The Vikings got the ball back and extended their lead to two scores before the Eagles adding a late Ertz TD before failing to recover and onside kick for the loss.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles
Video The Eagles entered the week 4 matchup against the winningless Jets who were once again without starting QB Sam Darnold. 3rd string QB Luke Falk struggled all day against the vaunted Eagles pass rush.After stuggling to get sacks in their first 4 games the Eagles exploded with 10 sacks, 3 of them from DE Brandon Graham which was a career high. The Eagles also forced 3 turnovers on the day 2 of which were taken for touchdowns.The first was an INT by Nate Gerry who had his second interception of the season. The next was by Orlando Scandrick who was playing his first game for the Eagles and came on a corner blitz ripping the ball from Luke Falk and taking it to the house. The Jets offense couldn't get anything going all day with their only score coming in the fourth quarter on a 19-yard run by Vyncint Smith after a muffed punt. e Eagles became the first team in NFL history to record 10 sacks and score two defensive touchdowns in a single game. Wentz added 189 yards and 1 TD to Zach Ertz and Jordan Howard added 62 yards and a TD on the ground.
Vikings
Video Following a lot of criticism Kirk Cousins got back on track vs the struggling Giants. He threw for 307 yards and 2 TD in a dominating performance.Dalvin Cook added 132 yards on the ground and the defense was dominate bring Daniel Jones back down to earth as the rookie was sacked 4 times and threw an interception while only managing 182 yards and a TD. The win came just a week after the Vikings (3-2) did little in a 16-6 loss to the Chicago Bears and Thielen insisted the team had to stop being one dimensional, relying solely on the run.The Vikings mixed it up with run and pass and came close to a 50/50 split and it paid off for the 28-10 win.

Philadelphia and Minnesota are split, 14-14 (.500), in an all-time series that dates back to 1962. The Eagles have won 2 of their last 3 games (.667) against the Vikings, as well as 7 of the last 10 (.700) and 11 of their last 14 (.786) overall.
This will be Philadelphia’s first regular-season game at U.S. Bank Stadium. The last time the Eagles played at the venue, they defeated New England, 41-33, in Super Bowl LII (2/4/18), which marked the first Super Bowl championship in franchise history.
Philadelphia owns the No. 1-ranked rushing defense (63.0). The Eagles also lead that category since 2016 (including playoffs), allowing just 90.6 rushing yards per game in that span. Philadelphia has not allowed 100+ rushing yards in 8 consecutive regular-season contests.
The Eagles rank 7th in the NFL in points per game (28.2), trailing only San Francisco (31.8), Tampa Bay (29.4) and L.A. Rams (29.2) in the NFC. Philadelphia has registered 30+ points in 3 of its first 5 games of the season.
The Eagles have produced the 2nd-best third-down offense (52.9%) in the NFL, behind Houston (53.2%). It marks their best third-down conversion rate through 5 games since the 2017 campaign (53.4%).
Philadelphia is also tied for 5th in the NFL with a 68.4% red zone TD efficiency, which is the team’s highest mark through 5 games since 2010 (75.0%)

Matchups to Watch
Vikings Passing Attack vs. Eagles Pass Defense
US Bank Stadium was really good to the Eagles not too long ago as the Vikings were gracious hosts when we brought the Lombardi to its rightful home. It was also the site of Choke Fest 2018, which saw the Vikings lose their Week 17 home contest, allowing the Eagles to make the playoffs instead. This year’s version of The Salt Bowl is an important matchup for both teams in the deep NFC between two talented teams. There aren’t many differences between the teams from last year to this year other than offensive philosophy. Mike Zimmer clearly thinks its 1970 and has the offense he desires for his football team after scapegoating John DeFilippo last year. This is a run first, hope-you-don’t-fall-behind-so-you-have-to-rely-on-Kirk offense that is pretty loaded at the skill positions. I don’t necessarily blame Zim for wanting to run more often than they did under Flip, but to neuter the passing game with Diggs and Thielen is borderline criminal. Regardless, the difference that can help the Vikings win is the same one that helped them win last year – passing. Diggs and Thielen are two highly-skilled, versatile, number 1 receivers that the Eagles aren’t very well equipped to handle. Sure, Rasul Douglas has been the best Eagles corner on the season and could hold his own as well as anyone could against these two while losing reps, but the talent available after him is troublesome. Sidney Jones is likely to get the start opposite Douglas this week; if not, it’s Craig James (bitch) job for the second consecutive week. Orlando Scandrick will likely get the start in the slot after going God Mode against the hapless Jets. Basically, this is a strong matchup that favors the Vikings. Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod are both playing at a high level which helps the Eagles since they didn’t have McLeod for this matchup last year. However, it is hard to hide one side of the field; it’s even more difficult when you face the Vikings top two receivers. Additionally, Dalvin Cook and this Vikings screen game is one of the best in the league. The Eagles defense hasn’t been that good at defending the screen. I know Zimmer thinks passing causes autism like vaccines, but the Vikings would be foolish not to take advantage of this matchup like they did last year.
Vikings Offensive Line vs Eagles Pass Rush
What helps a struggling secondary? Pass rush. The Eagles unit has been very slow to start the season and may not reach the levels it did in 2017. It was encouraging to see the defense put up 10 sacks against a unit they should dominate. The Vikings offensive line is still their most significant weakness and the Eagles defensive line can still murder them. Brian O’Neil and Riley Reiff are a decent tackle tandem and are playing better than they did last year. The interior of the Vikings offensive line has been cheeks on the young season. I think the addition of Garrett Bradbury will help the Vikings over the long term as he adjusts to the NFL. In the short term, his lack of size and power is very evident and damaging, especially in pass protection. Pat Elflein still hasn’t developed into anything decent and their other guard doesn’t matter since he isn’t good. This is an Eagles pass rush that is still good but not elite nor as deep as they once were. The slow emergence of Fletcher Cox has been a welcome addition as he works his way back from offseason foot surgery. Philly needs him to be impactful in a hurry. Brandon Graham is fresh off a career day. Josh Sweat is developing nicely. And Daeshon Hall is making good use of his limited snap. This defensive line need to bring it this week. The Vikings want to run and use play action boot off those looks; control the line of scrimmage and put the Vikings offense off script. Then they need to pressure and sack Kirk Cousins. Kirk is a poor QB under pressure and tends to be generous with the ball under some heat. Pressure and limiting the Vikings rushing attack by winning up front will help force the Vikings into situations they don’t want to be in allowing the Eagles the opportunity to create extra plays for their offense. It always starts up front for the Eagles and this week that need is amplified.
Vikings Pass Defense vs Eagles Passing Offense
The Vikings enter the game with one of the better rush defenses in the NFL. That has been a common occurrence for the Vikings in the Zimmer era. This is a defense that is very good in pass defense but not unbeatable. The problem for the Eagles in this contest, and every subsequent contest without DJax, is the limited deep threats outside. Howie Roseman didn’t do enough this offseason to ensure enough speed at the skill positions. Desean Jackson is still the elite deep threat he has always been but are not close to capable of replacing him. Alshon Jeffery is still the reliable receiver he has been but isn’t a vertical receiver. They’ll need him to play against the Vikings the same way he seems to always moss them. Zach Ertz figures to have a key role in this game after accumulating 18 receptions, 203 yards, and a TD in the last two games against this Vikings team (from Kempski) – they’ll need it again. And Dallas Goedert’s presence in the offense alone puts the Eagles in more efficient looks. One player that could step up and actually do something worthy of the undue praise bestowed upon him would be Nelson Agholor. For a guy that does have talent, he doesn’t do anything. He barely outperforms Mack Hollins, who’d rather play special teams. The Vikings secondary is talented but the CBs are underperforming, at least per PFF; the Vikings have no CBs in the PFF Top 50 (among CBs) in coverage grade. Their safeties are still great, but their CBs haven’t played to their usual talent level lately. There is an opportunity here for the Eagles to get their passing game going to a certain degree but is somewhat limited by their own personnel. I’m not arguing to abandon the run, but passing is slightly more favorable this week. Make their CBs improve. Get Barr and Kendricks isolated in coverage where they really struggle. Profit… as much as possible against this unit.
Vikings Defensive Front vs Eagles Offensive Line
This may be the best strength vs strength matchup in the NFL this week as it is in this game! The Vikings have a very good defensive front with (likely) the best EDGE duo in the NFL. Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter are a versatile, powerful, athletic, and dominant duo that gives opposing offenses fits on a weekly basis. While Shemar Stephen and Linval Joseph do a great job anchoring the interior, they aren’t dominant rushers though forces against the run. Still, this is a front that can take over games. As I wrote in the Eagles case, this pass rush can help out the secondary and generally does. The Eagles have one of the top offensive lines in the NFL with the personnel fully capable of neutralizing this Vikings front. We’ve seen how this offense can operate when the OL takes over a game (Green Bay) – it can go a long way this week. Additionally, Kendricks and Barr are two guys that can blitz as effectively as any rusher from time to time. Zimmer is creative with his blitz and pressure looks. In a hostile environment, it’ll be important for the OL to have another cohesive performance. It’s always important to win of front and this particular matchup is porn for the trench warfare community.

[Game Preview] Week 5 - Philadelphia Eagles(2-2) vs New York Jets (0-3)

Philadelphia Eagles (2-2) vs New York Jets (0-3)
The Eagles return home and look to build on the momentum from last week where they defeated the Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Lambeau. This week they will welcome the struggling New York Jets down from 95. Adam Gase’s time in New York is not off to the start he envisioned after acquiring some big names in free agency including CJ Mosley and Le’Veon Bell, they are 0-3 and look to be without Sam Darnold for the 3 straight game as he recovers from mono. With Darnold out Luke Falk will make his second start as he takes on an injury plagued Eagles secondary. For the second season in a row, the Eagles seem to be pulling corners off the street following a flurry of injuries at the cornerback position. Veteran Orlando Scandrick was signed at the beginning of the week and will make his first start as an Eagles with Avante Maddox ruled out with a concussion. The Bird’s secondary struggled last week vs Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams, but should get a break with Falk who went 12 for 22, for 98 yards and an INT last week against the Patriots. On the other side of the ball, the Eagles should look to build off last week where they had 176 yards on the ground and Howard found the endzone 3 times (2 rushing, 1 receiving). If the Eagles can get the ground game going early it should set them up in a nice position where Doug can use the full playbook. The ground game will set up the RPOs, play-action and screen game to keep the Jets pass rush off balance. The Eagles will still be without deep threat Desean Jackson who will be missing his 3rd straight game with an abdominal injury. Getting a win at home and having a winning record before heading into a tough 3 game road trip (@Minnesota, @Dallas @Buffalo.)will be big for the Eagles. The Jets have never beat the Eagles in their 10 previous meetings, so let’s keep it that way. Go Birds!

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles
Video The Eagles struggled out of the gate again as they failed to put points on the board in the first quarter as they fell behind the Packers 10-0 to start the game with the Rodgers-Adams connection coming out of the gate hot. The Eagles answered in the second quarter scoring 3 TDs to take a 21-20 lead into the half. After some defensive adjustments the Eagles were able to slow down the Packers passing game in the second half and continued to pound the rock with Howard and Sanders as the Eagles had 176 yards on the ground. Howard also contributed in the passing game scoring on a 20 pass from Carson Wentz in the second quarter and Howard added another score on the ground to start the 4th quarter. Despite losing Adams to a foot injury, Rodgers led the Packers down to the goal line, but the Eagles defense held as the Packers pulled a Pete Carroll and attempted to throw from the 3 which resulted in a Nigel Bradham INT to seal the game for the Eagles.
Jets
Video Jets entered their second game without starting QB Sam Darnold who missed the game with Mono. The Luke Falk-led Jets were no match for the rival New England Patriots as the offense only mustered 105 total yards and were unable to score as the Patriots dominated the game. The Jets were able to avoid a shutout with a special teams touchdown by Arthur Maulet in the 3rd quarter. The defense also scored on pick six after the game was out of reach by CB Jamal Adams, who intercepted Patriots backup quarterback Jarrett Stidham as Tom Brady and other starters were resting at that point. The loss brought the Jets to 0-3 in Adam’s Gase’s first season.

Matchups to Watch
Jets Passing Offense vs Eagles Passing Defense
Honestly, there aren’t many areas where anyone should expect the Jets to light up the Eagles; but if there is one area where the Eagles are an absolute movable force, it’s the secondary. The Jets enter this game with the 30th best offense by DVOA, 29th passing and 29th running. Even with a healthy Sam Darnold, this isn’t a unit to be feared given the shaky OL and mediocre coaching. If Darnold doesn’t go, which he shouldn’t, Luke Falk will play and certainly do his best. The Eagles secondary has been a sieve due to talent, injury, and questionable coaching at times but should still expect to handle this matchup. The Jets will be without second year pro Chris Herndon who is serving the last game of his suspension. Jamison Crowder has been a decent slot option for the Jets. The Eagles know him from his time in Washington and should be able to handle him. Lastly, and the real kicker, is WR Robby Anderson, a very good deep ball receiver. This is not in any way an explosive offense, but Robby is more than capable of torching this unit. If I’m the Jets, I take deep shots early and often: force this secondary to cover. They may be low percentage plays given the personnel but until the Eagles can stop it there is no reason not to try. Oh, and the Jets have Leveon Bell, who is still amazing. Bell in a productive offense would be lethal. Here, he’s merely mortal. The Eagles need to be sure to contain him through the air as he is a better receiver than a lot of Wide Receivers in the league today.
Jets Passing Defense vs. Eagles Passing Attack
We saw the difference the presence of Alshon and Goedert made on this offense last week and the Eagles will return the duo again this week. Desean Jackson will likely miss his third straight contest. The weapons that the Eagles will field Sunday should be more than enough for Philly to move the ball and score points. The Jets cover the middle of the field pretty well with safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. Additionally, CJ Mosely is a solid linebacker and rookie Blake Cashman has been a playmaker early on for the Jets. This is a defense that is currently ranked 12th in DVOA, 10th against the pass and 11th against the run. They’ve been pretty good to start. One major area of weakness for the Jets is at Cornerback – sound familiar? Trumaine Johnson has effectively been benched for robbing the Jets blind and they have been struggling to fix the position for some time. Brian Poole is the only positively graded member of the Jets CB room; this is a matchup that strongly favors the Eagles given the available talent on their end. Alshon, Ertz, Goedert, and Agholor should all be afforded chances to make plays in this contest. The Jets don’t have much in the way of EDGE pass rush so another solid performance from the OL is in order.
Jets Pass Rush vs Eagles Offensive Line
The aforementioned Jets pass rush has been an issue for them for years given the lack of EDGE talent on their roster. Leonard Williams is a solid interior player but not an extreme threat as a pass rusher. New York will see a return of rookie Quinnen Williams to the line up today. While he is a rookie, he is very talented, Philly should not be caught napping against him. Outside of that, the Jets don’t have a proven pass rusher you should absolutely fear, which in itself sets up nicely for the Eagles offensive line. One thing they’ll need to be mindful of is to communicate with each other since Gregg Williams loves to blitz. Williams knows one of the best ways to slow an opponents passing attack is to generate pressure on the QB. Does this also sound familiar? The Jets defense isn’t immensely talented but has been opportunistic, forcing a lot of turnovers on the season. This is a team with 3 defensive touchdowns – 2 more than the offense has been able to muster on the young season. They will bring the heat and try to force the offense into making mistakes. It’s up to the offensive line to build off a dominating performance on the road against a much more inferior opponent.
Jets Offensive Line vs Eagles Pass Rush
The Jets have a poor offensive line to go along with everything that has been discussed with this offensive so far on the season. The Eagles pass rush has been struggling this year but did show some life against the Packers. Per PFF, Brandon Graham had 11 pressures against the Packers with Cox generating 8. Pressures are great and do a lot to disrupt opposing offenses; the Eagles need to turn these pressures into sacks. Sacks knock offenses off their script and help generate turnovers. Pressures aren’t anything to scoff at, but this is the heart of the defense and needs to help a secondary that likely won’t be fixed this season. They have a golden opportunity Sunday to get back on track with a mediocre Jets offensive line on deck.
