Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 04:22 PM) Kareem Jackson is a decent player, I would rather go elsewhere for CB though> He has been a streaky player, some bad seasons some good

Chaos Icon : (03 March 2015 - 06:43 PM) @AdamSchefter: Filed to ESPN: Bills have notified LB Kiko Alonso he is going to be traded to Philadelphia for RB LeSean McCoy. Trade official next week.
Chaos Icon : (03 March 2015 - 06:43 PM) WOW. Rex is gearing up for ground and pound.
Chaos Icon : (03 March 2015 - 06:44 PM) Jets can sign Spiller now but they're going to need a new LB. Rex is gunning for David Harris.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:44 PM) Jets should trade Harris to Minnesota for Minnesota for AP
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:44 PM) Throw in Ivory/Powell or a pick
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:45 PM) Damn they got Shady
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:45 PM) Do NOT give up Ivory
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:45 PM) Powell ok Ivory HELL NO
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:50 PM) Well that definitely opens the door for CJ Spiller to the JETS now that the Jills got Shady
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:12 AM) Spiller is a joke. 99 % of the time he gets tackled for a loss or a 1 or 2 yard gain maximum. He breaks a run here and there. he had one good year in his whole career. their is a reason he is a backup and not the starter. I suggest you guys that believe Spiller has anything to offer go through the play by play game logs. I did and he is horrendous.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:14 AM) Spiller cannot break a tackle period. I broke down last years game logs of his runs in a thread last year. He isn't even a pass catching rb. Fred Jackson catches most of the running back passes.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:20 AM) Unless Spiller comes tremendously cheap no thank you. Wouldn't pay more than a one year deal worth 1 million at most. All he has is speed. Not even on Sproles level. His stats are inflated. For instance he has 10 runs in a game and 9 of them are losses are or 1-2 yard runs. Then he breaks one on the outside for 40-70 yards. Not reliable at all. Even when he break one he is guaranteed a td
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:21 AM) Even in his 1200 yard rushing year he only had 6 tds rushing and 2 receiving
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:23 AM) Spiller is only valuable as a special teams player. Period By year 2010 ) tds rshng 1 rcvng 283 yards rshng
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:31 AM) meant 0 tds rushing in 2010, 2011 4 tds 561 yards rushing 2tds receiving, 2012 6tds 1244 rushing 2 tds receiving, 2013 2tds 933 yards rushing 0tds receiving, 2014 0tds 300 yards rushing 1td receiving.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:41 AM) His stats look decent on paper but if you actually go through the game logs of his career like I did his stats are extremely inflated. For instance one game last year he had 10 attempts for 8 yards another 4 attempts for -4 yards, another 6 attempts for 19 yards, another 10 attempts for 25 yards.Another game he had 12 games for 69 yards but 47 of it was on one play. Point is he sucks as a running back. Who wants a rb that gets stopped 99% of the time and breaks one play fir a long run. We need reliable backs not a slim chance of him breaking one
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:06 AM) "NFL released its first 2015 League Year cap report to teams. Teams w/most room: 1) Jaguars $64.058M; 2) Jets $52.901; 3) Raiders $52.598M."

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:09 AM) RE-HIRE IDZIK
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:10 AM) Well in all fairness, when I think about the Jets I do think about number two
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:30 AM) FIRE MACCAGNAN
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:30 AM) The Jaguars hired John Idzik for his expertise in contract negotiating

Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 08:36 AM) so many teams have space
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 08:39 AM) eagles have 48M in cap space. Chip is going to go HAM this offseason.
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 12:35 PM) @RapSheet: The #Bills have traded for Matt Cassel, the team announced.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:43 PM) rex is gearing up his team
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:43 PM) a QB that won't turn it over. 2 stud Rbs for ground and pound and will now start building his defense
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:49 PM) McCoys agent said the trade is not final and he hinted that he may not be willing to play there.

Year in Review - Kellen Clemens

Today we continue a look back at the Jets’ numerical roster and each respective player’s individual 2006 season. This regular feature is scheduled to run throughout each week in the offseason.

In the past year, the New York Jets have searched and added players with great intangibles. The Jets wanted to add depth and competition to their quarterback position last April, so they selected Oregon product Kellen Clemens in the second round of the NFL Draft.

“He’s got that type of personality that’s described as infectious,” said head coach Eric Mangini of Clemens following the ’06 draft. “His players rally around him. So I’m excited about the depth and competition he adds and the person that we’ve added to the team.”

Clemens, who grew up a cattle rancher in Burns, Oregon, confirmed his leadership ability early on in Hempstead. During rookie camp, the 6-2, 223-pound passer took charge of the offense and turned some heads in the process.

“What I liked out of Kellen this weekend is his presence and his ability to run the operation - that's been really positive,” Mangini said following a rookie workout last May. “Someone was misaligned and he said, ‘Over here, you need to be set here.’ That presence, that understanding of what we're trying to get done and seeing the big picture was good to see. And it's what I expect to see moving forward.”

As the Ducks’ starting signal caller for three seasons in the Pac 10 Conference, Clemens improved with time. His numbers jumped from 18 touchdowns as a sophomore to 22 touchdowns as a junior. Then eight games into his senior year, Clemens broke his ankle, ending what would have been his best statistical season. Up until that game, Clemens had thrown 19 touchdown passes against four interceptions while completing 64% of his pass attempts. Over the course of his collegiate career, Clemens completed 61% of his passes and threw for 7,555 yards. Even more impressive was his touchdown to interception ratio of 61 to 24.

Clemens, the 49th overall selection in ’06, was a participant in the highly publicized Jets’ four-way training camp battle at quarterback, but Chad Pennington clearly distinguished himself from the competition. Pennington, who started 16 games in a season for the first time in his seven-year career, would go on to win Comeback Player of the Year honors while leading the Jets to a postseason berth. However, with the coaching staff viewing each week in the regular season as its own entity, a quarterback competition remained all season long between Clemens and veteran Patrick Ramsey for the backup role.

As the season progressed, Clemens provided good looks on the “show team” at practice and he impressed the coaching staff. He would eventually earn the backup role for the Jets’ December battle with Buffalo at the Meadowlands and relieved Pennington in the fourth quarter of a 31-13 defeat. It was Clemens’ second and final appearance of the regular season after receiving some mop-up duty in a September loss at Jacksonville.

“This was the first week that he was the No. 2,” said Mangini of Clemens in December. “He has had some really good weeks; he had earned that opportunity. I thought Kellen had really strung together some good weeks and earned being bumped up to two. Whoever plays better will be the No. 2.”

In the preseason, Clemens saw considerable action against the Buccaneers down in Tampa and completed 10 of 14 pass attempts for 92 yards. The rookie even orchestrated the club’s only scoring drive of the evening, culminating with a 20-yard Mike Nugent field goal. Four weeks later, Clemens started for the Green and White when they hosted the Eagles in the preseason finale. In just one half of action, Clemens connected on seven of 10 pass attempts for 75 yards.

After a full season under his belt, it will be interesting to see how much Clemens has developed when the Jets take the field for their 2007 training camp. The transition from college to the pros is especially difficult for quarterbacks because of the complex systems on both sides of the ball. It was a good sign that Mangini liked Clemens’ practice habits down the stretch, and the rookie surely learned a lot from just watching the consummate veteran in Pennington.

“This is an opportunity for me,” Clemens said in the preseason. “Chad Pennington is a guy who has proved that he understands the game at that level and can win at that level. There is a good veteran guy that I can learn behind for a couple of years and then hopefully get the chance to play, so this is a chance to bust tale and try to get ready to play and compete.”

Me too. I'm sure there will be another "training camp battle", but I just don't see Clemens beating out Chad for the starting job.

If Chad starts opening day I'm not surprised at all, especially if he actually does -- and I can't believe I'm giving this guy any more excuses -- get his arm stronger.

None the less I'm not pulling for him, but if Clemens isn't ready to go then Chad should start the season. Don't think I'm contradicting myself either because all I'm saying is if he's not ready to go. Now I believe he will be ready to go and he's got to do alot mentally and in the leadership category to knock Pennington off his high horse. However, he's a freaking Cowboy Cattle Roper man. He's a natural leader and tough as nails. Those guys aren't weak mentally or physically I'll tell you that much. I'm hoping he starts. We'll see.
