Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 08:18 PM) Regardless of our SB chances this year or next year. If Idzik keeps acting like a cheapskate and continues to let quality players go, we won't have to worry about winning much of anything this decade.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) He wants to build through the draft. Not blow the bank on FA. I get what your saying but there is a balance and right now we are not one or two pieces away.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:00 PM) It's not about being one or two pieces away. It's about keeping the good pieces you have and building upon that.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:04 PM) But there is no sense in trying to build through the draft if he's only going to end up letting the good players he picks up go in FA after a few years. All because he wants to do things on the cheap.

azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) The Revis deal sucks but $16 million was too much for a CB and once he was gone he was not coming back.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 01:00 PM) Eh. I think with our current cap situation we will be able to retain guys like Wilkerson and whomever we want to keep. We are in a good position right now.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 02:00 PM) landed revis abck. got DRC, nope we take patterson who got owned and always hurt. milner always hurt. 3rd round CB done for season. were gonna get passed on all day
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:46 PM) I'm not saying Idzik is perfect. I just like the direction we are heading. It's going to take some patience.
RetireChrebet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:27 PM) I like how our lack of secondary is the hot topic right now. The bigger issue is we still will not be able to throw the ball. We are not going to do much of anything regardless until we get a QB. Sorry for being so negative just my honest opinion.
RetireChrebet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:29 PM) With that said I think our running game with CJ and Powell will be top 10 or somewhere around there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:35 PM) i have faith that if geno messes up that vick can come in and do well. but i have 0 faith in our secondary right now which has been our strong point for the past 4 years or so
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:35 PM) I agree 115. but the one thing is Rex has done some good things in the past with shitty DBs and still had a solid D going back to his years in BAL

MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (20 August 2014 - 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) The JETS are #6 in the Forbes List for most franchise value
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) The Buffalo Jills are #31 and the Miami Dolphags are #16 respectively
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 07:00 PM) The JETS are worth $1.8 billion
jet-man Icon : (20 August 2014 - 10:03 PM) that's less than the clippers
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 01:07 PM) I'm very excited with the amount of preseason touchdowns the Jets have
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 03:21 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 07:22 PM) Calvin Pryor and Darrin Walls will start tomorrow
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 08:52 PM) The SIMPSONS MARATHON has been on for almost 12 hours...
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 08:57 PM) Sanchez looks so much more confident and better in Chip's offense than he did with us
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 09:50 PM) EVERY SIMPSONS EVER!!!!!
2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 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.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:02 AM) Preseason doesn't matter at all
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:10 AM) anyone have a stream for the preseaosn agme by chance?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:00 AM) In Geno we trust
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 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

Shonn Greene
RB, Iowa

War Room analysis
Inside running: Consistently attacks the hole and punishes defenders. Is patient; waits for blockers to open the hole. Shows solid flexibility. Is able to knock the tackler backward. Falls forward for an extra yard or two when going down. Does an excellent job of keeping his legs churning after contact. Is able to easily run through arm tackles and keep his feet against hard hits. Grade: 8.5

Outside running: Does not show the explosive burst to consistently get around the corner. Is able to make sharp cuts. Is very effective running through defensive back and linebacker tackles on the edge. Grade: 6.5

Blocking: Is not an experienced lead blocker. Gives questionable effort in pass protection. Needs work on his technique. Grade: 4.5

Hands/routes: Is only adequate catching the ball. Does not consistently keep his eyes on the ball. Will fight the ball at times. Is inexperienced running routes, catching only 11 passes during his college career. Is a strong and productive runner after the catch. Grade: 5.5

Durability: Shows toughness and competitiveness. Was only a full-time starter for one season. Needs to prove he can handle an entire NFL season. Grade: 5.5

Bottom line: Green's Iowa career is somewhat of a concern because he was a one-year wonder. He was a backup in 2005 and '06 and was declared academically ineligible in '07. He has many of the tools to be a starting tailback in the NFL, but his limitations in pass protection and lack of explosiveness could keep him from being a first-round selection.

sounds like a goaline type guy. Straight up the gut for a few yards. Leon will be our home run guy.

Shonn Greene-RB-Jets Apr. 26 - 10:19 am et

The Jets traded their third, fourth, and seventh-round picks to move up eleven spots in the third round to select Iowa RB Shonn Greene with the No. 65 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

The Jets aren't shy going for the players they want, giving up five picks and three veterans for two rookies in Mark Sanchez and Greene. It's expensive, but we love the fit. Greene, at 235 pounds, is a classic bruiser who will pound teams in the red zone. But he can also block and catch passes, making him a major dynasty sleeper. This crushes Thomas Jones' 2009 value because they will likely split carries and Jones will lose touchdowns, assuming Jones is even back with the team. Greene will probably take over in 2010.

It is better to destroy than create what is meaningless, so the picture will not be finished.

Seems a bit expensive but if we come out of this weak draft with a franchise QB & RB I'm sure all of us would take it in a heartbeat.

He's not a franchise RB. He's not going to out run anybody. he's a bruiser with some moves on the inside. We have a good O-line so he'll do fine. He's no Moreno.

He is a Bradon Jacobs clone. Will pound the hole (ROFL) and lives for contact. I can see him and Leon leading the attack for several years.

His burst will surprize you. Yea the speed numbers don't jump out at ya. He reminds me of a young bettis style. I wasn't a fan of his at first, but he grows on you as he just keeps banging.
He is alot more than just a goal line type.
I watched all his games since he was at Iowa. Hope he works out for Jets.
After last years #6, we have to have some luck coming our way?
He is just so truely humble...and is really hard to find today and that carries him

I'll take that next season

His report states a one year starter & seen limited playing time. I see this as a plus in a smash mouth RB.

In an interview on newyorkjets.com he answers a questions about his running style. Saying "Yea I love contact, I love the Violence" .. I think we know the kinda people Rex likes.

I'm a Big Ten guy also (Penn State) and I got to see Greene run a bunch and let me tell you, he can fuckin flat out ball. He reminds me of a Bettis/W.Parker hybrid. Thats almost the perfect comparison to how this guy plays. He's got wheels, don't let the skeptics fool you. I saw him outrun LB's @ OSU and PSU all season long, and his initial burst will certainly surprise. I'm with you Jetshenderson, I think he could be a great player. Rex Ryan and Tanny know what their doing.


p.s. can we please think of a new name for those two? Tangini was perfect, haha. Now what? RyanBaum? lol. T-Rex?
