  • What do Felger & Mazz think of the deal?

    Jim Murray: Just seconds ago from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Patriots are expected to sign former Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-schuster giving quarterback Mac Jones an important weapon moving forward. Jakobi Meyers out, JuJu in.

    Felger: I don’t like it.

    Mazz: I don’t love it either.

    Felger: I don’t like it. I’d rather have Jakobi Meyers I would. I mean, not that I care about the money, but let’s see about the money. I don’t like it. I mean, I like JuJu Smith-Schuster with Patrick Mahomes. What can I tell you? But at least it’s something. At least someone made a choice somewhere there that they would rather have JuJu Smith-Schuster than Jakobi Meyers. Fine. I wouldn’t. They would. Okay. I guess I’ll take it. Give me JuJu Smith-Schuster’s particulars please. Give me data. How old is he?

    Jim Murray: Well, 26. Pro Bowler in 2018. Strong season for the Chiefs last year, 78 catches 933 yards 3 TD’s.

    Felger: How big is he again?

    Mazz: 6’1″ 215. So I’ll tell you what with Smith-schuster, I feel like he’s not the same player he was when he was in Pittsburgh in the early years of his career. This is the part that bothers me. They got a guy on the downside. You know, I say downside, he’s not old.

    Felger: Is he a number one?

    Mazz: No.

    Jim Murray: No.

    Felger: So you just throw him into the pile with DeVante Parker and Kendrick Bourne and formerly Jakobi Meyers?

    Mazz: Correct.

    Felger: It’s just kind of lateral. I like Jakobi Myers more than most. I’ve liked him from day one. So I’m a I’m a Jakobi Myers guy. I would say certainly JuJu Smith-Schuster has more raw abilities. He’s faster. I mean, definitely. Like, that’s obvious. JuJu Smith-Schuster is faster, more explosive. And I think more prolific. I mean, you know, those kind of words, definitely. Is he more reliable? Does he have better hands? Can you get on the same page with Mac like Jakobi Meyers could? I don’t know. I’d rather have Jakobi Meyers and Juju Smith-schuster.
