2JBallar01 Icon : (22 August 2014 - 07:10 AM) Sanchez is looking good for the eagles. Crazy how a good offense and the right system can make you look so much better. When you're put into a situatuon to succeed, magic happens. Happy for Sanchez, i think he needed a change just as much as the Jets did.

ROBJETS Icon : (22 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Don't read to much into Mark in the preseason. He usually looked good in the preseason even in a Jets uniform.. Big difference from regular season where the 1st string defense is playing 100%.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 August 2014 - 09:09 PM) A lot of 1st stringers are just getting reps in and trying not to get injured. Its only the backups trying to keep or get a job playing hard every down. If preseason qb play meant anything then Matt Simms would be the starting qb of the Jets.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (23 August 2014 - 07:23 AM) preseason or not, our offense hasn't looked competent in a while like it does this year. our rushing attack should be very good. Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory could be a dynamic duo

FlyHiJets Icon : (25 August 2014 - 01:05 PM) Cro rumored to be gettin released from Arizona. We should definitely bring him in since he already knows the system and he's bett erhtan our 3rd/4th stringers which is where we're at at this point.

Jets tried trading WR Stepehen Hill this summer. No takers. Let's see if final cuts today and Saturday change that equation.

Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:49 PM) need 1 more in the fantasy league
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:33 PM) Dimitri suspended for the rest of preseason. I'm sorry, I know we are bone dry at corner these days but they should have cut this prick on the spot . He's going to get torched regardless this year and I'd rather cut ties with any potential cancerous attitutudes before the season even starts.
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:34 PM) Where I come from you take responsibility for your actions. Not showing up for a game is cowardly and selfish. f*** him
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:36 PM) Also he doesn't know what the acronym AWOL means so he's also an idiot. No wonder he's never been anything but a journeyman corner is this league.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:11 PM) So how do you really feel?
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:18 PM) I think my last three posts pretty much summarize how I feel haha. He's making 1.5 mill this year and no call no shows because his feeling are hurt. Would rather you play corner azjetfan than this guy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:12 AM) Need 1 more for FFB!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:39 AM) Stephen Hill is going to get cut, guy sucks. Greg Salas is a better football player and deserves a spot over him
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 11:27 AM) So when do we show up to 115s house with pitchforks, tar and feathers?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 12:03 PM) i'd rather see idzik go then hill. fire idzik
bleedsgreen Icon : (Today, 12:21 PM) Hill is such a disappointment. I really was hopping for so much when he scored 2 TDs his first game
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:11 PM) We need to get the J-E-T-S chant back this year to the way it was
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:13 PM) idk if any of u guys went to any of the games last year[Im sure some of u did] but im not a fan of the drumline leading the chant
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:14 PM) its not the same as 70,000 people doing it during every kickoff and after every score

Pats Kraft future plan: Owner promises to spend to salary cap

By John Tomase
Boston Herald Sports Writer
Saturday, February 3, 2007 - Updated: 02 0 AM EST

MIAMI - Patriots owner Robert Kraft yesterday guaranteed the team will spend to the salary cap in an effort to improve a squad that fell one minute short of the Super Bowl.

“We’re always going to spend to and over the cap,” Kraft said yesterday at the Super Bowl following a press conference by commissioner Roger Goodell. “We’re not one of those teams that puts the money in our pockets. We’re committed to spending.”

The Patriots began the 2006 season with roughly $10 million in cap space, the result of failed contract negotiations with Ty Law and Deion Branch. When those players ended up elsewhere, the Pats went to Plan B, spreading their money around to Richard Seymour , Dan Koppen and others.

The result was a club that may have lacked reinforcements, but at the same time had positioned itself to make a run in 2007. The Patriots could have as much as $30 million in salary cap space to play with in free agency, giving them a chance to chase an impact player like Ravens linebacker Adalius Thomas.

“In terms of spending, you have to look where we are at the end of the season, not the beginning,” Kraft said. “With all due respect to my friends in the media and the fans, they don’t understand the intricacies of the cap. You look where we were at the end of the year and where we’ll be next year, and it will be the same thing.

“We’re different than some teams. We’re not just planning for this year. We’re trying to be good for a number of years. Our management team has shown over the last four to five years that wise planning has allowed us to stay in the hunt.”

When Kraft looks back at 2006, he sees much to like. The Patriots finished 12-4, the third-highest victory total in franchise history. They won a playoff game for the fourth straight season, something no other team can claim in that span. And though they fell short of the Super Bowl, it wasn’t by much.

“Our performance this year, with the challenges we faced, was one of the best since we’ve owned the team,” he said. “Believe me, no one’s more disappointed than I that we’re not playing in this game. We had our shot, but if you think back over the year, with the injuries we had, the field, and everything that went on and we ended up 14-5, I mean, man. That’s a pretty good accomplishment.”

Kraft has plenty of reasons for optimism. In addition to the salary cap space, the Patriots also own two first-round picks in the 2007 draft and 12 picks total, all of which can be used to complement a veteran core built around quarterback Tom Brady and an outstanding defensive line.

“I’m very excited about the future of this team,” Kraft said. “We’re in a pretty good position with the salary cap. We have two picks in the bottom of the first round, which is really one of the best strategic points in terms of value.

“The first eight or 10 picks you have to pay so much, it’s like signing an unrestricted veteran player who has proven himself. Unless the player is a great player, that can affect how you manage your cap.”

In the end, Kraft said, his management team led by head coach Bill Belichick and personnel man Scott Pioli will continue doing everything it can to keep the Patriots in contention, and that includes spending.

“We want to make sure our fans understand we have a fixed budget,” he said. “Sometimes we make decisions that people can’t relate to as fans. Believe me, I understand that. I can assure our fan base that every decision we make is to put us in the best position to win games.

“With our cap position, draft situation, and the group of people we have running things, I’m excited about next year. We have a tougher schedule, but that’s part of the privilege of being successful. I wouldn’t want to have it any other way.” iagree.gif
(and I believe we will spend wisely too)

We should spend too, we need to get a #1 CB badly, if we dont we wont make the playoffs next year. We need to sign either Samuels or Clements..
We also need to get a DE. Plus a pass rushing specialist. Bigger d-line. We also need a good redzone target since we really dont have a good one. I would say we should sign Daniel Graham, him and Baker would make a very respectable TE duo...

I don't know about Daniel Graham. I don't like the idea of picking up the patriots leftovers. We should gain our own identity.

Graham is a good player though, he has speed and hands to stretch the field from the TE postion, and is physical and a good blocker, he would be a good addition for our team.

Every team is going to spend this offseason in FA due to the extra cap space afforded to each team by the new CBA. There aren't going to be many cap casualties and June 1st cuts because of the new cap.
If Baker where utilized more and our OLine afforded Chad a little more time then he would be a top redzone target so I don't think TE needs to be addressed except for perhaps bringing in a backup. CB should definitely be targeted through FA as drafting one would mean the rookie would have to adjust to the rigours of the NFL and would in most cases not be able to contribute early on. Guard and RT should also be looked to be addressed when FA begins.

Im just saying Graham, because Graham is a amazing blocker too. It would be a advantage to us to have 2 good TEs that both can catch and block. Ryans can block, but he isnt a good recieving threat. I agree though, CB has to be our #1 priority in the FA, because there is 2 #1 CBs in Clements and Samuel, and drafting one wouldnt be good because there isnt alot of depth in the draft there. I think they should sign Dielman or Steinbach for OG. Both are good guards and are young.

Is Dielman a RFA or UFA?

Yea right!... shut up b!tch! Since when?!. This sounds like Patriots spewage to me. A team tighter then fort knox is giving the media little tidbits like this? F-OFF!

Their probably saying these things so other teams like the Bills,Jets and Phins catch wind of it and think we have to sell the farm because the Pats are "telling" people they are going to sell theirs.

Give them credit for trying to F around but I'm not buying that for 1 second
