MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 08:57 AM) GET RIVERS
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 08:59 AM) It's going to cost us 6 because we are going to have to outbid a bunch of teams
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:52 AM) He is a good QB and I would love to have him. However IMO our 6 is not good value for us. Not to mention if he hates the idea of LA what is he going to think of NY? Contract situation would have to be worked out prior to trade as well. Extreme long shot to land Rivers. My money says we are more likely to land Brees.
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:53 AM) which is still a very long shot
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:46 AM) he may just hate ownership. LT's comments yesterday was interesting.
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) “I personally don’t think so,” Tomlinson said. “I really think this is a situation where Philip Rivers wants to move on. The reason why I think that and the reason why I feel like that is the Chargers have already approached Philip about doing another contract and he declined it. He doesn’t want anything to do with it; he didn’t even want to talk about another contract with the San Diego Chargers. That tells me that he’s thinking about moving on.”

“You never want to trade your franchise quarterback,” Tomlinson said, “that’s never the case. However, in this situation they might have no choice but to do so because I don’t know if Philip [Rivers] wants to be there anymore. I think he’s lost confidence in the organization. He’s seeing a lot of changes going on and the L.A. thing is valid; him not wanting to go to L.A., that is very valid, I can see that. So no, it doesn’t make sense to move on from Philip because he’s a franchise quarterback and he still has three to four very good years left.”
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) missed the LA line. nvm. guess that is a legit concern.
Mr_Jet Icon : (21 April 2015 - 03:57 PM) He doesn't want to play for a franchise based in Los Angeles, but he'd be okay with playing for one based in New York City?
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 04:28 PM) That's the point we have all been making.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:05 PM) Jets vs colts Monday night week2
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:09 PM) Jets open at home against the browns
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6

Well I'm just glad to see the Republican party has gotten it's mindset out of the 1950s and leapped into 1984.

But seriously I think it was a very bold pick by McCain, not the right pick but one way or another America will make history on November 4th.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

Not totally sold on McCain, still leading towards Obama...but it is nice to see that he is a bit open minded as well. Either way it should be interesting in November.

FYI, Collin Powell and Condy Rice.... what were they, white folks in black face and drag?

Seriously though go look up the Civil Rights movement and look up what party many of the more active and daring politicians were.

I like the pick, but honestly I don't know much about her. I'll say this, she isn't ugly, unlike another female politician I know...

Seeing how this economy has broken apart at the seams in the past 200 days I'm definitely now voting for Obama. Sorry McCain, your economic policy was just too weak

Lets face facts, McCain needed to put Jesus on the ballot for him to have a shot. Nobody want's to elect John George Bush McCain to another 4 years in office. Especially someone like me who is tired of burying his friends after there nonsensical journey in to a country to fight a war that never should have been waged. McCain is using this poor lady as a political tool. As soon as the day comes when Hillary Clinton bashes this ex-beauty queen with words, then there will be no mistake as to who women are going to vote for. And its not going to be for the party who is trying to stop a woman's right to choose or the party who doesn't want to pay women an equal salary for an equal day's work. McCain basically just admitted today that he feels he has no shot at winning so he had to try and shake it up a bit and hope and pray that women would flock to his campaign. Too bad there was a quote today from one of the leading supporters of Hillary Clinton which said, "I know Hillary Clinton and Sarah? Palin is no Hillary Clinton". That's all you need to know on how this little maneuver is going to work.

Oh did I mention that Palin is under federal investigation in her own CORRUPT state? Well she is. Sounds like the same old Republican party to me.

I believe in the Puritan work ethic which is what this great country was founded on. Unfortunately, the libs don't believe in this and blame ALL of someone's failings on society/government instead of on the persons irresponsible choices. I can't see osama I mean obama doing ANY good for this country. Like a typical lib-demonrat he will tell you EVERYTHING you want to hear but has NO WAY of implementing those ideas w/out bankrupting the country.

I love it how Republicans throw Powell and Rice up in somebody's face everytime someone calls the Republican party the party of rich, old, white, protestant, straight (or closeted), men. Compare the faces we saw this week in Denver to the faces we'll see next week in Minneapolis, then tell me the Republicans are the party of diversity. FYI Powell and Rice were not and are not the President or Vice-President of the United States. Should all Jewish women love Bill Clinton just because he picked Madeleine Albright to be his Secretary of State?

Fine George W. Bush should get credit for making Powell and Rice the first black person and than Rice the first black woman to be SoS. But did he listen to Secretary Powell during the lead up to war with Iraq? Looks to me Bush just listened to Cheney, Tenet, and Rumsfeld and patted Powell on the head and ignored his advice NOT to go to war with Iraq. Proof positive the old guard of the GOP (like his daddy & James Baker) forced Bush to make Powell SoS. It wasn't until he needed Powell to sell the war to congress, the U.N., and to the American people that he paid Powell any attention. In the process destroying Powell's credibility when the reason for war went from Saddam's WMD to liberating the Iraqi people.

A President Obama or a Vice-President Palin would be much more historic than Powell and Rice being SoS. Voters don't choose a Secretary of State. Voters do choose Presidents and Vice-Presidents. That's why Obama and Palin are a bigger deal.

I know plenty about the Civil Rights Movement. I know that President Franklin Roosevelt (a Democrat) created the Fair Employment Practices Commission. I know that President Truman (a Democrat) desegragated the U.S. military. I know John & Robert Kennedy (Democrats) pulled strings to get Martin Luther King, Jr. released from jail. I know President Kennedy started pushing for the Civil Rights Act. I know President Johnson (a Democrat) signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 into law. Also he was the first to nominate a black man to the Surpreme Court. I know the Democratic controlled congress made MLK's birthday a national holiday. I know Walter Mondale (a Democrat) was first to select a woman to be his running mate. I know that two years ago the new Democratic controlled congress elected a woman Speaker of the House. I know that it is the Democratic Party that nominated two days ago a black man to be President of the United States. Not to mention all the work Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden have done to better the lives of minorities and women in this country over the years.

smile.gif You got a lot a nerve to lecture me on civil rights and then say you'd "do" Governor Palin; and how she looks better than other female politicians. So people can't say anything bad about minorities but sexist remarks towards the possible next Vice-President of the United States is okay? Well go "do" Vice-President Cheney, he's used to f***ing people over.

Isn't that the excuse u republicans made to try and keep Bill Clinton from becoming president? Yeah so what he got a blowjob from some fat cow, but that doesn't diminish the fact that our economy was booming and our deficit no longer existed when he left office. Let's face facts, John McCain CHEATED on his ex-wife with Cindy McCain. Any woman who can sleep with a married man, in my opinion, has no values or morals. Than the Oil Companies, I mean Republicans took office in 2000, now we have the largest deficit in our history. We have more people foreclosing on their home than we had during the GREAT DEPRESSION. Yeah, Obama may have an optimistic outlook on the future of our country but at least we know that he can't do worse than the Republicans have done in these past 8 years.

I know one way he's going to get the money to implement these ideas he has, by ending this f*cked up war in Iraq that's costing us 10 BILLION DOLLARS per month.

The problem with your argument about Lib-Dem's not believing in a Puritan work ethic is false. Here is a transcript of a few lines of Obama's speech last night:

CODE
Ours -- ours is a promise that says government cannot solve all our problems, but what it should do is that which we cannot do for ourselves: protect us from harm and provide every child a decent education; keep our water clean and our toys safe; invest in new schools, and new roads, and science, and technology.

Our government should work for us, not against us. It should help us, not hurt us. It should ensure opportunity not just for those with the most money and influence, but for every American who's willing to work.

That's the promise of America, the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation, the fundamental belief that I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper.


That definitely sounds like someone who is telling the American people that they NEED to work hard and that GOVERNMENT can't and will not bail them out of everything. But it also says that we need a Government who isn't asleep at the wheel. And that's the problem with John McCain, b/c we all know how OLD people like to nap.
“We know we’re better than you, we don’t give a f*ck if you know it or not, we don’t give a sh*t if you give us your best game, we’re gonna give you our best game and we’re gonna beat the f*ck outta ya. How’s that?”

That's alright choon he's just trying to bait you/us with those Karl Rove talking points. That's why I don't respond to posts like that. I could rip McCain a new asshole and make fun of him, but I won't because then I'd be just as bad as them. Ever since the Clinton impeachment for both parties it's been all about tearing the otherside down to build my side up. Though the Republicans are better at it. That's why Obama has been able to energize young people and people who've ignored politics in the past. He doesn't feel the need to constantly rip and lie about McCain to build himself up. Even though I wish he would fight back a little more and not let them define him. This Timebandit dude just wants a message board fight and won't bring any depth or insight to the discussion. There are guys here who I may not agree with politically but can have an intelligent and civil discussion with and not attack each other and our candidates personally.

But back to the orginal topic I thought McCain would pick Lindsey Graham to be his running mate. But the Democrats need to stop with this Palin tried to get her brother-in-law fired stuff. That's going bring up the domestic violence issue and that might help her and McCain with women voters.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

I have to agree that this looks like a knee-jerk reaction trying to pull those die hard Hillary supporters who say that they can't vote for Obama. The problem is that those voters won't jump ship if they think McCain is just using Palin as a stunt. Also, how many consevatives will to Bob Barr once they hear how Palin went after the oil companies and raised their taxes? As far as firing the person who wouldn't fire her ex-brother in law, the issue is how she tried to use her position to attack people, and then got rid of those who stood in her way, not whatever the brother in law did. Don't get me wrong, the brother in law was a a**hole, but when the official wouldn't fire him, she went over the line by getting rid of him. It makes her look like she is a bully and lets her emotion get in the way of her judgement (as both the official and her brother in law would be able to sue for wrongful termination).

ps word in MN is that Pawlenty's people were completely out of the loop, and are not happy. the gov cancelled every event and interview yesterday thinking they were in, and had a not too supportive interview at the fair today.

I didn't know that. He is suppose to be on Meet The Press in Sunday so I'll be watching his body language to see how he really feels. I did hear though that Mitt "Who Let The Dogs Out" Romney wasn't to happy with the pick either.

Why would any Republican be happy? The only reason they would be is b/c they are desperate and they think this is their best chance to win the election and they're wrong. I have more foreign policy experience then she does.

I agree. I mean if he was going to pick a woman, Kay Bailey Hutchinson or Elizabeth Dole would have made more sense. Atleast McCain has spoken to them more than once. I would say Condi Rice too, but she needs to focus on being SoS and McCain doesn't need such a prominate fixture in the Bush administration running with him.

Palin might just end up being another Dan Quayle. I mean people talk about Obama possibly being assasinated but McCain has a better chance of having a stroke or getting cancer again and dying in office than Obama does. Even if McCain doesn't die he might become sick and incompasitated for a long time. Which will mean she will have to become Acting President. I wasn't going to watch the convention but I'll drop in on it now just to see how the party elders feel about this. McCain through a hail mary today that looks like will end up being an incomplete pass come Novemebr.

McCain picked Palin because like him she is a maverick who has bucked her party countless of times on numerous key issues. Also, she's pro-life & pro-2nd Amendment (being a lifetime member of the NRA). As a Gov. albeit for nearly 2yrs. & twice elected Mayor of a small town she has more executive experience than any candidate including McCain. McCain sees her as an outsider who is NOT from the Washington establishment & CANNOT be tied to the Bush administration, so there goes obamas claim of 4 more yrs of Bush. She also relates well to the working class, they can see themselves in her, she's the mother of 5 children, 1 who enlisted on Sept.11 2007 at the age of 18 in the Army & an infant who was born this past April & has downsyndrome. She really is living the American Dream, work hard, be sincere, stand by your principles & Always keep God in your life & good things will come your way. God Bless her & John McCain in their quest to lead this Great Country for the next 8yrs.

Exactly, this is why picking her makes no sense at all. With the stance on abortion and the 2nd amendment plus the fact that she has supported a constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriage and has also tried to get rid of the small amount of rights that our gay and lesbian friends have now, she will not get Clinton supporters to vote for them b/c of all of the things I just listed. It's such a stupid decision.

Add in the fact that 2 months ago Palin said this about Clinton, "She's an insufferable whiner". That will definitely get the Clinton followers once that gets out, hahaha.

Being a member of the NRA isn't exactly a plus to the people McCain is targeting with the Palin Gimmick(Liberal Hillary Supporters).

Are we honestly trying to call being a mayor of a town of 9,000 people and a governor for 2 years of ALASKA big time experience suitable for the White House?

Oh OK...since McCain says no I guess there goes the claim of 4 more years of Bush........I guess that means McCain is also confirming the fact he won't live through the 4 years of his possible presidency.

And here's the great failing of the republican party...failing to realize that the rest of the world isn't exactly the same as them. Not every human holds the same principles and values...and that doesn't make other people bad.

Looks like McCain used the ol' "pick a number between 1 and 10" method in choosing his running mate.
