MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:12 PM) God Job Fitz....The guys in red and blue don't play for you anymore
JSOTF Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:14 PM) piss poor play all day, thanks to you assholes for giving me a slitght spark there at the end
JSOTF Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:15 PM) referring to the Jets, not you guys! lol
ROBJETS Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:15 PM) Well yeah Fitz threw a couple ints but if Thomkins would've been in instead of Smith things might be different since Thomkins catches almost everything and runs good routes
ROBJETS Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:17 PM) I'm disgusted that they keep putting Smith in at all. He isn't an NFL caliber wr and never will be. You can work on route running but not Vaseline hands. He will never be anything more than a body catcher
ROBJETS Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:20 PM) Either way yeah this team sucks. No playoffs for us. It's hard to blame Fitz though. He touched it out after having surgery and said his thumb hurts far worse than before the surgery. Plus the online was shit and he kept getting hit so it's hard to make Fitz a dud this week
ROBJETS Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:20 PM) Fitz was under tremendous pressure all game
ROBJETS Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:21 PM) If Fitz had good protection he would've made better throws. Also Marshall dropped a lot of easy catches
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:23 PM) f***........................
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:23 PM) I HATE THIS
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:24 PM) Dolphins looking to take us out next week also
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:24 PM) I think Mangold has a broken wrist
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:34 PM) Jets 4th loss by 7 points or less. I all 4 of them the jets had the Ball with under 2 mins to go with a chance to tie or win the game
santana Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:35 PM) noooooooo
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:36 PM) yessssssssssssssss
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:53 PM) So now we have to pull for the Pats against the Bills to stay even with them
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:53 PM) BOOOOOOOOOOOOO
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 04:54 PM) Hate my life
vjdbbq Icon : (22 November 2015 - 06:11 PM) SLIDE YOU f*** HEAD SLIDE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
vjdbbq Icon : (22 November 2015 - 06:11 PM) I don't want to see Geno !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 11:42 PM) Report is mangold has a severe cut on his hand
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:12 AM) Jets playoff hopes are seriously on the edge of going down the drain with all the close records, tie breakers and better division win %.Steelers and Chiefs are prime for the 2 wild card spots. Jets pretty much need to run the table at this point for even a shot at a wildcard.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:14 AM) Sucks big time after the season started so promising. 4-1 to total implosion. It sucks even more because we are so used to it we expect it every year now.
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 AM) Nice ass rob
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 12:31 PM) Jets cut copels today
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 12:32 PM) Coples
NJAzrael71 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:24 PM) Scott20119.....how about you go troll and spam some other site? Spammers can go f*** themselves.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:39 PM) vjdbbq you have some serious metal and IQ issues. Why dont you go back to your old ways of never posting when you had only 5 or 6 posts since your join date in 07.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:39 PM) mental
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:49 PM) Thanks for the news MGG. If the FO didn't try to shop him before the trade deadline it was stupid because releasing him now they get nothing. Maybe no one would've traded but if so even a 6th or 7th round draft pick or someone the team might be able to use would've been better than nothing
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:51 PM) He sucked this year but did have a career best 6.5 sacks in 2014 so a team change might work out for him.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) Couples will land on the Bills when Rex grabs him off waivers
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:37 PM) in the mean time does anyone think we would have a better record under Rex with this same team?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:53 PM) Couples....it wouldn't surprise me and .....with Rex its hard to tell. His defensive scheming may be the best in football but this team has had a lot of injuries on both sides of the ball which has absolutely cost the team at least 3 games ......so as far as better record. it would be simply an opinion. Bowles has done a good job so I have no problems with him other than time out usage. That said I feel rex got a bad rap because he never had a qb even on Fitz caliber and Fitz is just average. But that is in the past so no sense even debating about it now. Rex is with a new team and we finally have a qb who doesn't completely suck. Still wish we had a true high level franchise qb though.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:34 PM) Watching the game and I am finding myself yelling at the bills offensive playcalling
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:34 PM) Just stipupidity
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:35 PM) run the ball every time on first and second with zero sucess
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:36 PM) Out D is no where near as good as it should be under Bowles. I'm not sure why. I guess it's easy to blame Bowles but the bend and don't break philosophy isn't working
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:39 PM) They should ban that pick play.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:54 PM) As bad as we have played lately we are still a better coached team without Rex. Rex still has no clue how to manage the clock
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:03 AM) See. Can't manage the clock
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:05 AM) Hello Rob
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:06 AM) They cut coples to save money in case he got hurt practicing since he hardly played ; a business move .
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 12:58 PM) our D was better with shit CBs last year. rex is just better at calling a defense then bowles
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 12:58 PM) hopefully milliner comes back. where has mcdougle been? revis hurt and cro hurt

Edited Mike Tannenbaum press conference

By Hoss Aultman

Posted Jan 16, 2007

Q)Your thoughts on the season . . .

[Tannenbaum: I was happy that we were able to play in some meaningful games down the stretch, and into the playoffs. The team got better, especially down the stretch, to give us a chance to play in the playoffs. With that said, as Eric said the other day, it’s a clean slate now. We are 0-0. We are transitioning to 2007.

QWhat are you guys working on right now?

Tannenbaum: Right now we are critically analyzing the 2006 season from the personnel department as well as from the coaching staff. It’s important that we have a good, honest assessment of what we did well and what we can do better. What our strengths are, what are weaknesses are. Once we are done with the critical analysis of our team, Eric and I will assemble our lists of ‘musts and needs.’ We will pursue those ‘musts and needs’ as soon as the 2007 off-season begins, be it offense, defense or special teams. After that, I’ll be heading out to Mobile for the Senior Bowl. Then we will be rolling into the 2007 off-season.

Q)Do you guys need to get bigger on the defensive line? Tannenbaum:

We are going to look at everything, but the run-defense improved considerably over the second half of the season and that kept us in a lot of games. The short yardage and goal line defense was actually very good, especially stopping the run. There were some things to be encouraged by and there were definitely areas where we will need to improve. We have already met with the personnel department to get their thoughts. Over the next couple of days, Eric and I will sit down with the coaching staff to get their thoughts as well.

Q)How do you feel about your current cap situation?

Tannenbaum: I feel comfortable where our cap situation is. I don’t know what that final number is yet, there are still some nuances of contracts being netted out for incentives, but we should be in a comfortable cap situation. Philosophically we want to build our team through the draft as much as possible. Eric and I are committed to that. We are going to try to keep our own players as much as we can. That is another core belief. With that said, if we feel there are opportunities in the free agent market that make sense, we are obviously going to look at it and try to make the best decision.

Q)Do you think you will sign any big money free agents?

Tannenbaum: The core philosophy, obviously, is to spend as much of our resources on our own guys. If there is an opportunity in free agency, it has to be about value. One thing we know about the system, and it has been in around since 1993, you have to accept the consequences of any decision you make, good or bad. It stays on your cap. You have to make sure you feel good about those decisions because right, wrong or indifferent, you are going to have to live with them.

Q)Will you look to get long-term deals done with Jerricho Cotchery or Victor Hobson?

Tannenbaum: Both of those guys had very productive years. They got better and they took to the coaching well. We are going to put our plan in place and try to execute our game plan as best we can. Those are the types of guys that we do like.

Q)Do you guys need to add a feature back this off-season?

Tannenbaum: We did have 1,700 yards and 15 touchdowns as a team. I know it was more of a running back by committee but there still was a level of production. We are going to take a long hard look at it to see what we can do better, but some of the pieces are here.

Q)Do you want to get new contracts done, and sign most new free agents before the draft?

Tannenbaum: What I have learned is, if we can have the roster as well prepared as possible before the draft, then we can be in position to take advantage of opportunities that may present themselves in the draft. Which is what I think happened last year. I don’t want to go into the draft saying, ‘we have to get X or Y,’ because based on history what I have learned is that is when mistakes can be made. I would like to have as few moving parts as possible relative to the roster heading into the draft because then we can capitalize on opportunities if they are presented and we can take what is best value for the team. That is my goal. We are going to work hard between now and the last week in April to put our roster in that position.

Q)How many draft picks do you have this year?

Tannenbaum: We have a first, two seconds, a third, a fifth and a sixth round choice.

Q)What are your thoughts on the season Kevan Barlow had?

Tannenbaum: Certainly the second New England game of the regular season was productive. He had six rushing touchdowns for us. There were some things that he did well. There are some areas, where, I'm sure he wishes he did better.

Now we are going to see what we can do in the future with him.

Q)Can Leon Washington be an everydown back?

Tannenbaum: How many reps he gets will ultimately be Eric’s call. What I will say about Leon that I am really impressed with specifically is he got better at the skill sets that we asked him to get better at in May. Ball security and pass protection in particular got better. He took the coaching well and worked on skill development. By him doing that he earned the right to play more. He earned the right to be there on third down. There are a lot of running backs in this league that aren’t on the field on third down because they cannot protect the quarterback. He could. He is highly competitive. The game is not too big for him.

Q)What are you plans for Tim Dwight?

Tannenbaum: We’ll be meeting with the doctors to get a good game plan over the next few days on all these guys in terms of what their limitations will be in the off-season program, if any, which usually starts traditionally in the third week of March. Some guys are limited to start with.

Q)Will Patrick Ramsey be getting his bonus this spring?

Tannenbaum: We’ll know a lot more about that situation as we get closer to the start of free-agency and when we see where our final cap situation winds up. Eric and I will sit down to discuss him and everybody else. By the start of the league year we’ll have a plan in place.

Q)Will Chad Pennington be the starter next year?

Tannenbaum: Eric is going to decide who plays. Chad Pennington did a great job for us this year, he’s a great leader and he’s a great competitor. There are a lot of things to be encouraged by Chad, in particular his 31-22 record as a starter.

Q)What are the attributes you will be looking for from players you acquire this off-season?

Tannenbaum: I think toughness for any of our players is really important. I think toughness is an endearing quality for anybody on our team. Being smart and competitive and being able take to coaching are all key attributes that our players need to have.

Q)Why was Andre Dyson active for the playoff game when he clearly wasn't 100 percent?

Tannenbaum: In those situations, you have until an hour and a half before the game to cut from 53 to 45. What we try to do there between Eric and myself and the trainers is try to make the best decision with all the information you have. You try to get as many of those decisions right, no one is ever perfect.

Q)Did you expect a little more from Kimo von Oelhoffen?

Tannenbaum: When you build your team, sometimes you see contributions that are either tangible or intangible and I would say, a lot of Kimo’s contributions, were from an intangible standpoint. He brought a lot in terms of leadership and I thought some of the players he helped were very meaningful. Did he contribute to the maximum? There is some room for improvement there.

His answers to the first two questions I am most impressed by as it shows they aren't going to leave any stone unturned this offseason and that the minute we were eliminated from the playoffs, the new season started and they got down to work, no rest. It's the committment any fan wants and that extra work should pay dividends in the future.

Man you cant tell me that Mr.T and Mangini arent the best duo between a GM and a Coach. I mean they both think alike, both talk alike. They are like friggen brothers! They both talk to the media the same way, they dont tell you shit, and thats the way I like it, because its even more of a suprise when a player is signed. I think we need to revamp the offensive line more. I was watching the NE game again, and I have to tell you the 2 guys that got pushed around like nothing was Moore and Ferguson, but Ferguson held more of a fight. Moore was getting killed, I liked this guy and was a huge fan, but u know we do need a upgrade, he isnt progressing anymore he is just degressing. Clements did a nice job actually, so maybe we resign him and then replace Moore? I just dont want to do too much in one year because I wouldnt want to hurt the chemistry of the line. Though they werent very good at all. defintely our weak point on offense this year. Linemen period are our problems.
