Lets go cotchery
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2016 - 09:44 PM) Or tag and trade him. No way we should just let him walk
vjdbbq Icon : (27 January 2016 - 08:24 AM) We need Cro and Brick but for less salary .
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:18 AM) what up home dawgs?
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:22 AM) long time no chat, Ya boy has returned from the depths. Good to see everyone alive and well. Another season down the drain... what else is new? Fitz coming back next yr means we wont be going to the superbowl. We seriously need to land a QB. I hope Petty is the future and Im still quietly waiting for Geno to show up. IF they retain him it would speak volumes
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 January 2016 - 11:23 AM) I'm done with Geno. Never really expected much from him from the beginning. So I'm also looking for Petty to be the future.
vjdbbq Icon : (29 January 2016 - 04:33 PM) GENO SUCKS MONKEY DICK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:16 PM) S-Dubb??.Who's that guy?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:17 PM) FIRE S-DUBB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Dubb and Amen? Did I take a wrong turn and land back in 2007?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Haha good to see both of you
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:28 PM) I don't care if Cro comes back, I think Marcus Williams can start opposite Revis. Hes a ball hawk and has performed well everytime hes called on.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) I want Fitz back as starter, he lacks arm talent but he is scrappy
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) The team loves him as a leader and he is a good bridge QB as we groom a QB of the future.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He also has top notch pocket awareness.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He allows our playmakers to make plays. After years of terrible QB play, I'll take 31 TD 15 INTs almost 4,000 yards
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 February 2016 - 12:41 AM) I can't stop thinking about the off season...... what the hell are we gonna do!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Maccagnan is going to have to show his worth
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) They can't have Wilkerson on that franchise tag, they have to sign him long term with a small cap hit or trade him. Otherwise we are in trouble with other FAs.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) We need Harrison back, you can't run a effective 3-4 without a stud NT.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:01 AM) I hope we get Harrison back on a 4 yr contract.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:55 PM) I really think we are going to have to tag and trade Wilkerson
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) If we keep wilk we lose Harrison or Fitzpatrick maybe both
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) And ivory
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:23 PM) We can't keep Wilkerson, Richardson, and Williams. A move has to be made
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) If the Jets want to go cheaper, they can try to trade Wilkerson and have Richardson/Williams for cheap
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Then they can re-sign Harrison, FItzpatrick, Ivory, and maybe Powell.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Kaepernick apparently wants out of SF and wants to join the Jets
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Guess he sees the Jets as a team with a great WR tandem and a quality OC who builds a offense around the players
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) No thanks
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) Unless he's dirt cheap
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:30 AM) The jets would be fools to take on that contract
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 02:09 PM) keep powell, snakcs, wilkerson, and fitz. let ivory walk, trade richardson, cut cromartie, restructure brick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 04:18 PM) Marshall said no to Kaepnerick, he wants FItzpatrick as his QB
vjdbbq Icon : (04 February 2016 - 12:07 PM) Where's Rob ? I need some ass shots !!!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:16 PM) its crazy how dead this site is
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:16 PM) its super bowl Sunday!!
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 04:47 PM) Everybody is at Rob's house ; checking out the asses !!!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 05:17 PM) Hope Cotchery gets a ring tonight
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:04 PM) Yeah I would rather see a panther win
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:25 PM) Zzzz
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:03 PM) I want to see Manning go out on top
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 11:03 PM) Jerricho got screwed on the call in the first quarter but he dropped a few later on .
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 11:04 PM) Screw Manning and his chicken parm .
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:29 PM) We need a pass rushing LB!! Look at Denver.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 PM) Nothing against manning but he wasn't good at all this year and gives me hope that we can reach a super bowl with Fitzpatrick

So then what makes him worth paying more for then Samuel? Is this just your opinion?

Nate Clements has shown consistancy while Asante Samuel has had 1 good year.

Clements had 2 INTs and 102 tackles in 2005.

Samuel had 3 INTs and 54 tackles in 2005.

How is that more consistant? Why because Clements has been in the league longer? It's Samuel's fault for being younger then Clements? Or is it because Samuel didn't go to THE Ohio State University like Clements did? Clements IMO is not better then Samuel and if he is not by much.

Samuel clearly had the better season in the 2006 season on a team with more defensive stars then the Bills. Remember this is a "What have you done for me lately" league, so why would 2005 and before matter in 2007?

In 96 games Clements has 23 INTs while Samuel in just 59 games has 16 INTs. That's only 7 less then Clements and Clements has played 37 more games then Samuel.

Anonther thing Clements hasn't had much if any playoff game experience, Samuel has two Super Bowl rings and started in Super Bowl XXXIX.

Also Samuel knows Mangini and knows his style and system unlike Clements who hardly if at all knows Coach Mangini. For people who say Samuel is just a product of the Patriots' system, what is Eric Mangini? What system is he a product of? Remember before he was "Manginius" he was the Patriots defensive coordinator.

numbers can be deciving in 2005 bailey had 64 tackles and 5 INTs does that mean he had a bad year?

teams arne't throwing muhc toward bailey or clemenst for that matter. CB is tough cause stats are very deciving . ty law had 10 INTs for us but didn't have a great year at all. INTS don't mean much for CBs like most people think. clements has been a dominint cover guy and a pro bolwer for the last few years. smaual had a breakout year in his contract year but clemenst has been consistintly better,

It's true. However, I still think Assante Samuel has more potential. Clements is already tapped out, we don't know how much better Samuel could get. Either way we're not getting him.

Clements hasn't been to a Pro Bowl since 2004. Plus Clements is older and like I said hasn't played in the same system the Jets do. Clements would have to learn the defense unlike Samuel who already knows it.

Still nobody has proven how Clements is more "consistant."

Nate clements is 27 and samuel is 26......both are young period.....people have yet to see what clements can really do because he has been in exile up in buffalo and QB's dont go his way which is a sign of a true shutdown and plus he's a great tackler which samuel's isnt......samuel maybe better but ESPN said today the pats will likely franchise him if they dont work out a long term deal so Clement might be the only way to go

Yeah because the Bills would never do the same thing to Clements....again.

Of course they don't throw Nate's way, he's the only great DB they have. Samuel has players like Ellis Hobbs and Rodney Harrison in the backfield with him.

That age difference is somewhat misleading since Samuel was born in January and Clements was born in December.

Still I'd rather have a player who has been in the playoffs, started in a Super Bowl, and has already been coached by Mangini.

IMO since Clements was tagged last year he'll want even more money then Samuel.

The feeling here in Mass with most Pat fans is that he`s a gonner. Asante Samuel COME ON DOWN!!! YOUR THE NEXT FREE AGENT TO SIGN WITH THE NY JETS!!!. I would just love to see this happen and watch Patriot nation break out in a panic. Kraft and Pioli dont spend no money in Patsie town. icon_idea.gif bwhahahahah cool2.gif

First calm down. What I was basically going to say is what Tipceey said. I'll just add that he has been a 2 time pro-bowler and has not missed a game in his career.

Edit: This is directed towards Mr. Jet (I messed up the quote box)

I am and have been perfectly calm. Like I said before he hasn't been to a Pro Bowl since 2004, hasn't had the playoff game experience Samuel has, and hasn't played in Mangini's system like Samuel has.

Neither matters, we're not getting Clements or Samuels. Neither are going to be free agents. They'll have to be traded for, which means draft picks, which means we aren't getting either.

The Jets are smart and they'll do the right thing: Build through the Draft. Once you have a system and a coach that is smart enough to locate the correct talent for the system, you get an all-star. Neither player is worth our 1st or 2nd round picks. Build through the draft, Tangini knows that. Let's just hope they don't reach again for players and get the right guys because the 2006 draft class really contributed to this team and I expect the 2007 draft class to be better.

DONT forget about Miller.. He showed me some good signs towards the end of the year.. He has all the talent in the world but was extremely raw when we drafted him and we knew he would be a project player.. Usually players like Miller shine in their 3rd year of play.. Don't give up on him yet..

CB should not be a top priority..

I agree. I'd LOVE for Miller to start on the outside and be shutdown. I've never really seen him get beat like I've seen the others get beat. He just needs to tweak his technique a little bit to get him to the next level which is punishing the QB for throwing his way. He already punishes everyone else with his bone crushing hits. I love that kid! I'm with Requiem on this.

The patriots have two players they can assign the franchise tag on. Daniel Graham is a free agent, I doubt Brady would like to loose another weapon on the offense. If they can't lock Graham up, I wouldn't be surprised if they franchised him.

They can still transition tag him if I'm not wrong meaning they'd have the final rights on a contract and get compensation. I'm not really sure about how the team would get compensation but what I was reading about it is a little cloudy. I think if the team says they'll match the contract and the player leaves anyway, that's when they get compensated. I'm guessing it's based on the contract amount as to what the compensation is. Either way we would have difficulty get him. I don't think we'll get either player. Draft a CB and continue to help Miller make progress.

the transition tag means they have to pay him the average of the top 10 salaries in his positiion and if he signs a deal the team gets the right of 1st refusal, if they refuse they got no compensation

the transition tag means they have to pay him the average of the top 10 salaries in his positiion and if he signs a deal the team gets the right of 1st refusal, if they refuse they got no compensation


Personally I don't like the Franchise tag or the Transition tag. It's not fair to the player. They played through the life of their contract, honoring it. The team shouldn't be allowed to continue to have the rights to the player. I think it's unfair and annoying. It limits FA's as well and it limits the players' ability to freely negotiate a new contract with whatever suitor he wants. I think the NFL should do away with them. They get all high and mighty and pissy about players holding out of training camp but when a team Franchise Tag's a player there's nothing wrong with that.

To me, the team should have already signed that player if he's that valuable. I think a solution is you can Franchise Tag a player meaning that no one can freely negotiate with you for a certain period of time. If the team fails to reach a contract agreement in that time period then the player is free to negotiate. Otherwise it's like a master/slave relationship with the player not having any rights which he truely does because he's no longer under contract. And then it penalizes the team that signs the player that is an UFA by them having to trade a high pick for the player. It's just a big bullshit.

The patriots have two players they can assign the franchise tag on. Daniel Graham is a free agent, I doubt Brady would like to loose another weapon on the offense. If they can't lock Graham up, I wouldn't be surprised if they franchised him.


no way they'd franchise graham he's not one of the top 5 TE's in the league, he not even no. 1 TE on the team Watson is plus they drafted a guy last year to replace him.....................and the Frnachise is a HUGE slap in the face of any player because usually that player wants no.1 at the position he plays and a long term deal because usually they are coming off of a great season and if they dont produce like that again the following year they lose that no.1 money they wanted...........i think this is what is going to happen to samuels........he/'s not going to have another 10 int year next year or the following year so he isnt going to get champ bailey type money that he would get if he signed a long term deal this season........under the new agreement teams can only franchise a player twice it used to be they could do it every year
