ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) I hope he rips Marty a new asshole
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) yeah cause Rex has perfectly coached many a games
canuckfan Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) morningwheeg what an idiot....hope re4x throws him under the bus during the presser
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) you want the NFL to say sorry and you want Morningwig canned. You're a clown
bleedsgreen Icon : (Today, 06:45 PM) Gotta give credit to greenbay. That's a good football team
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:46 PM) f*** an apology. It's not going to change anything in the standings which is what matters at the end of the season.
FlyHiJets Icon : (Today, 06:46 PM) definitely reminds me of AFC Championship in Denver
canuckfan Icon : (Today, 06:46 PM) marty ranks up there with bittfumble
canuckfan Icon : (Today, 06:47 PM) buttfumble
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:47 PM) The should have made sure he knew who was calling the time out. Hell Rex was on his right and Marty was on his left.
mgjetman Icon : (Today, 06:47 PM) Getting lazy with a minute 50 on the clock before half was the nail in the coffin.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:48 PM) The ref
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:49 PM) There is plenty of blame to spread around. No team should lose a 17 point lead anyway.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:50 PM) DUDS - Miliner and Marty
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:50 PM) BRUTAL LOSS
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:52 PM) I really don't blame Marty because it's the refs job to make sure he sees who is calling the timeout. Plus the ball had already been snapped before he even noticed somebody was calling a TO.
mgjetman Icon : (Today, 06:53 PM) Just gave that game away. WTH!!!
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 06:54 PM) He didn't even blow the whistle until Geno already had dropped back to pass. The play was already well underway.
bleedsgreen Icon : (Today, 07:03 PM) I heard it when the ball was already in the air
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) but it shouldn't of come down to that TO blunder
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) we did give up a 18 point lead
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) so we fucked up and lost
bleedsgreen Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) True
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) time to get ready for MNF
santana Icon : (Today, 07:09 PM) Well it sucks when you start to feel the jets are going to lose the game them selves
santana Icon : (Today, 07:09 PM) the Vick play worthless
santana Icon : (Today, 07:09 PM) that run on 3rd and 5 worthless
santana Icon : (Today, 07:09 PM) chris Johnson also I don't know what his numbers were but ivory seemed to be a better back
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:13 PM) Marty just picks the worse time to call those wildcat plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:13 PM) they are drive killers
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:27 PM) Problem is the corners. We knew this before the start of the season. I was amazed at how well they did last week and the first half but eventually the weakness showed
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:28 PM) The corner positions will be addressed next year. Technically we are still in a rebuilding phase.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:39 PM) we did go toe to toe against a SB contender and we really shouldn't be heartbroken but if you call yourself a JETS fan and aren't a little pissed over a W that we had in our control then you need to go and hand in your JETS gear ... I'm looking at you 115
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 08:24 PM) 18 penalties in 2 games
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 08:25 PM) unacceptable
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 08:27 PM) Geno dropped from #1 to #28 in TOTAL QBR
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 09:10 PM) Cutler just got popped right in the chest
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 09:11 PM) that was a squared up right in the middle of the chest hit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 09:13 PM) nice one handed catch by Marshall

NFL done, congressmen turn next to NBA

By HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Sports Writer
April 28, 2005


WASHINGTON (AP) -- First, Major League Baseball was summoned by Congress and chastised for a steroids policy that the sport promptly altered. Next up was the NFL, which strengthened its drug program on the eve of a trip to Capitol Hill.

Now it's the NBA's turn to face lawmakers, and commissioner David Stern already is talking about getting tougher testing into a new deal with his players' union.

Even as the House Government Reform Committee moves closer to offering legislation establishing uniform steroid rules for major U.S. sports, the leagues themselves are changing their programs.

``I don't know how the public feels about this, but I think members are pretty united on this. It's a huge issue, and it needs to be taken care of,'' chairman Tom Davis, R-Va., said after Wednesday's five-hour session on football.

``That's why it's important consulting with the NFL, Major League Baseball -- we'll be doing the NBA next -- talking about what their policies are so we don't do something stupid as we implement it.''

Worried that steroid use among pro athletes encourages youths to try the drugs, the committee is examining the testing policies of more than a half-dozen sports.

``How is the average American supposed to look at the size, strength and speed of today's NFL linebackers and not conclude that they might be taking performance-enhancing drugs?'' Davis asked NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue.

Said Tagliabue: ``We don't feel that there is rampant cheating in our sport.''

The proceedings were not nearly as contentious as on March 17, when Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa and other current and former baseball stars were compelled to appear and faced direct questions about whether they and other players used steroids. Baseball commissioner Bud Selig, also a witness, was roundly criticized for his sport's policy, which lawmakers said was too lenient.

More than once Wednesday, congressmen prefaced remarks or questions by calling the NFL's appearance a ``breath of fresh air.''

``With all due respect, the commissioner of baseball hadn't even read the document that he had given us,'' Connecticut Republican Christopher Shays said. ``I kind of love you guys, and yet I shouldn't because I still have problems.''

In particular, he asked why a player would have to fail four tests before getting banned for life. Some lawmakers asked the 10 witnesses whether the size of today's NFL players is evidence of steroid use. Others asked whether amphetamines should be banned and when growth hormone will be checked for (Tagliabue said there's no credible test yet).

The NFL announced Tuesday that it's tripling from two to six the number of random offseason tests that players can face. The league is also adding to its list of banned performance-enhancers.

The NFL began testing for steroids in 1987, added suspensions in 1989, and instituted year-round random testing in 1990. Fifty-four players have been suspended, and Tagliabue said an additional 57 retired after testing positive. A first offense carries a four-game ban.

``We would be naive to not be aware that there are people out there who are trying to stay ahead of the curve,'' NFL Players Association chief executive Gene Upshaw said. ``As soon as we find out about something, we do something about it.''

Baseball banned steroids in September 2002, instituted mandatory 10-day suspensions this season -- and only eliminated a provision allowing for fines instead of bans after facing the committee.

The NHL does not test players for performance-enhancing drugs, while the NBA suspends first-time offenders for five games.

Stern, attending a playoff game in Chicago, said league officials ``absolutely'' would testify if asked, although he noted there are time constraints right now, including the postseason and labor negotiations.

Those talks include the possibility of expanded testing for performance-enhancing drugs.

``It's incumbent upon every sport to just have rules that demonstrate to their fans that, if you're in the NBA, you submit to a certain amount of testing,'' Stern said. ``It's really a covenant with the fans, especially the young ones.''
