OFF SEASON ALMOST OVER AUG 13 VS LIONS
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) Im not against it but it would have to be a short term deal
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:37 PM) rumor has it he wanted a raise over his $5.5 million base this year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:39 PM) 33 is young for a guard. he's got at least 3-4 more years in him
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Mmmmm I disagree.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) I would go 2 year deal.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 June 2015 - 10:40 PM) TEH WARRIORS
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE BURKE
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 June 2015 - 06:27 PM) THE A-ROD!!
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:19 PM) god damn week no activity in here
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (29 June 2015 - 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 June 2015 - 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (29 June 2015 - 08:59 PM) I feel fast.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:53 PM) Shot an 86 today. Personal best.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:19 PM) well done
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:19 PM) im going to play friday
blk_orion Icon : (Today, 08:57 AM) play what? golf?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:16 PM) Sheldon Richardson suspended 4 game for substance abuse.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:16 PM) f***
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:15 PM) DAMNIT TO f***ing HELL!!!!
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 07:46 PM) Yup. Golf. I'm ready to take on Tiger. Mid season form. For what ever reason I am hitting the driver great. 280 and fairly controlled. I'm playing again Saturday.
santana Icon : (Today, 07:55 PM) tiger shot a 66 today didnt he easy course though
santana Icon : (Today, 07:55 PM) things were going too well for the jets this off season

I came across the following info and found it interesting. Do you think there is any validity to this? Would they trade him within the division? He always burns us, but I'm not sure what Buf would be asking in return or if he is even an elite back.

Willis McGahee said in a recent interview with Penthouse magazine that the NFL should be in Toronto and that the Bills should move there.

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle's Bob Matthews believes the Jets could be the first team contacted if the Bills are willing to deal McGahee. A beat writer for the Bills' official website thinks trading McGahee is a definite possibility this offseason.

i don't know why the bills would trade him but if the chance was there, I would give up a first round pick for him.

Mcgahee is a beast. Not only when he plays the Jets, especially when he plays the Jets. If they were looking to deal him, I'm not sure they would do it in the division though. Even if they trade him to someone else, it would be good for the Jets to get him out of the division. I'm not sure I'd give up a first for him but I would give up a second. BTW, the reason he said they should move to Toronto is because he doesn't like living in Buffalo. Selfish much?

Yea really! Willis is a beast. It's just amazing that they would even think of trading him. We are looking for our guy they have their guy and they want to get rid of him. What gives?

Would you want to live in Buffalo? I think it's kind of ridiculous we think NFL players should be completely selfless and do whatever it takes for their team. These are human beings too...what if you had no choice but for some people to decide where you are going to work and live for the next atleast 4 years of your life? It may not matter as much to some people...but I don't want to be forced to live somewhere. What if you get sent somewhere like Green Bay? Forced to live in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin? I'd be legitimately upset!

Dude, are you really sticking up for someone who said, in effect, "I don't like Buffalo so they should move the team to Toronto."? No one has a choice. You go where you go. I don't hear anyone else complaining.

No offense but how old are you? Playing football is a career, and this is how careers work. It's not like anybody put a gun to his head, he's getting paid $15 million to do what we loves... Plenty of people take jobs for a tiny fraction of what McGahee is getting paid to move places that they don't want to. Living in Buffalo is something he should deal with and not cry about.

To some people it's all about money...but to me I'd rather be happy where I live than how much money I have. Money isn't good to me unless I can spend it on something I enjoy.

And what does age really have to do with anything...except you trying to belittle me?

I'm not trying to belittle anyone, it was a QUESTION... because someone who's in high school might not understand as well as someone who is dependent on their own livelihood... particularly someone who has three children like Willis McGahee. If thats how you feel then more power to you,

McGahee got drafted by Buffalo, he signed the contract, that's how the NFL works. And if Buffalo was actually a contender, I bet McGahee wouldn't be complaining right now. Money aside, he had no choice where he went.
