Jets vs Chiefs Sunday 4:30est
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:09 AM) good
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:09 AM) Best day of the week is the day after a Jets Win!
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:12 AM) Rob you think the offense started off ugly? we scored on our first 4 drives, and controlled the ball 80% of the time the first half. We didn't even punt until the 2nd half
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:21 AM) I meant the hits on Fitz at on the first Drive or two with the fumbles and almost fumbles....The Tom Brady rule where balls that used to be fumbles are incomplete. We recovered the ball on all but one but it was ruled incomplete
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:26 AM) The offensive line stepped off after Hughes got hurt for however long he was out. I don't blame J. Marsh for that fumble because that was just a hell of a play. Imo Fitz had a career best game even with only 1 td passing. Never seen him so accurate. So yeah when I meant ugly I meant dline penetration and the 1st two drives ending up in fieldgoals
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:30 AM) But 31 points given up passing by the defense passing was bad. It wasn't just 2 long bombs and that defensive touchdown leading to 21 points. 3q1 against a bad team was terrible for the defense. Without the offense putting up 37 the Jets,would have lost so yeah I consider it an ugly start on both ends
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:32 AM) I'm glad like everyone else that the Jets won. Especially with getting with by the Bills multiple times it was nice revenge.
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:34 AM) Just saying that the Bills look like a bad team this year and the Jets have to face a lot of teams that are probably playoff bound again so yes there is a lot of concern
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 11:39 AM) fitz look good and lets not forget the 50+ yarder to decker that was called back on a BS holding penalty. plus if you rewatch it, the jets d-line was getting held like crazy and never got calls. I seen McLendon, williams, and wilk all complaining about it
azjetfan Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:32 PM) I think the game plan for the D was to keep Taylor in the pocker
azjetfan Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:33 PM) They didn't want him running around when they only rushed 3-4 guts
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:37 PM) bills fired their OC today after the loss yesterday lol
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:38 PM) yeah we didn't really rush, we just tried to keep contain on the outside and collapse the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:38 PM) on the salas TD, one of our LBers went for the sack and broke contain and pryor got away and made the play
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:39 PM) when we did rush which was rare, we had a spy
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 11:11 PM) As far as the Bills firing the oc I'm not sure I agree with it with Watkins having major foot problem with a steel rod in his surgically repaired foot but I dont follow the Bills so cant really say. I do think they need to get rid of Rob Ryan though. He had a decent year with the Browns then was terrible with the Cowboys and Saints. He isn't half the DC that Rex is. I still think Rex can be a good head coach withe the right coaches and roster but Rob Ryan isn't the answer. But if Rex wants to ruin his chance of staying a head coach by keeping his brother on the coaching staff like he ruined his head coaching job keeping Sanchez as a starter then that's his stupidity
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 September 2016 - 12:20 AM) The A Football Life of Curtis Martin is a MUST WATCH!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 September 2016 - 02:03 PM) They got rid of their OC after their defense was ripped apart
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:03 PM) Well hell that makes even less sense. The defense gets ripped apart so let's get rid of the oc instead of the dc.they didn't have much of a run game but a lot of passes yards. If they wanted to blame anyone for nearly 40 points against them it was their defense. But guess Rex used the ocean as the scale goat instead of his brother
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:04 PM) Oc not ocean. Damn Auto correct on phone
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:04 PM) And scape goatee
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:05 PM) Lol still can't get it right
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:13 PM) Not sure about anyone else but I'm extremely interested in the 49r/ Panther game at 1pm. Just want to see if the 49rs are actually good this year or if the Rams have become one of the worst teams in the league this year
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:16 PM) If the Rams have regressed that much then all the Todd Gurley owners in fantasy will likely have low points from him all year. Might even be worth trying to trade him early if they look just as bad this week before his stock drops
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:26 PM) I drafted him last year and also had David Johnson, Chris Johnson, Roetlesburger, Romo, Palmer, Barnage,, .....my whole team was stacked with starters. Entire team wasc stacked with starters. Even bench. Made tge Superbowl but did have a rough start at behinning of season when Romo and Roethlisberger wentvdown at the start of season also lost amazing starting rb and wr all within the 1st 4 games but worked the waivers really well..shut out until garbage time by a team that was terrible last year
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:28 PM) Last part meant Rams were shut out entire game even in garbage time against 49r backups
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:29 PM) Sorry about typos. Hard to type on small phone screen
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:00 PM) This is why I'm glad Rex is gone. Fire the OC after the D gives up 500 yards??
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:01 PM) UPDATE THE UPDATE!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:25 PM) Yep Rex isn't a bad coach but he needs to have all player and coach decisions as far as firing and hiring taken out of his hands. His problem is he doesn't know to separate the job from loyalty to players and is unable to let underperforming players go
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:27 PM) He was great as a DC because he wasn't in charge of roster and firing decisions. He will never make it as a good head coach until he can get rid of loyalty and run a team like any boss runs a business.
azjetfan Icon : (17 September 2016 - 07:16 PM) I loved Rex as a person. But he is severely handicapped in his skill set as a HC. He has not adapted and will not adapt. That's why he isn't here and will be fired from Buffalo.
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:05 AM) It's all guessing and I will like likely stick with my two starters that are injured and playing but D.Thomas looks like he is still in a lot of pain and Stewart is still in the locker room getting ankle treatment so both could be on a snap count
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:06 AM) I have good wr's on bench and good rb's on bench but they have bad matchups. Do t trust Diggs against Greenbay or Doug Martin against Arizona both on bench
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:08 AM) If I made changes I have Crabtree for Oakland Aagainst Atlanta and Abdullah for Detroit against 49rs as my two options I would choose if I made any changes
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:10 AM) Actually have it backwards with my running back teams
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:12 AM) Detroit vs Titans who I believe has a legit defense. Panthers have a better team but the ankle for Stewart and both the Titans and 49rs are ranked #1 against the run. Not a believer in the 49rs defensesthough
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:13 AM) Believe the Rams oline just sucks
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:15 AM) Abdullah splits carries but he did get 17 last week and also catches a lot of passes and has a better qb so could exploit the Titans still
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:16 AM) Will most likely do my own thing anyway just looking for input from those that actually study in fantasy if anyone feels like offering their opinions. If not it's cool too. Thanks
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:18 AM) If not for the injuries to the two players I'd keep them in for sure but all it takes for Thomas is a hit to the hip and a tackle by the ankle for Stewart if they aren't on a snap count already or if pain doesn't get to them.
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 12:45 PM) Well looks like leaving in Stewart was,a,bad move in locker room
MikeGangGree... Icon : (18 September 2016 - 04:54 PM) Good news! Dolphins suck
santana Icon : (19 September 2016 - 08:08 AM) Thanks professor
Jetsfan115 Icon : (23 September 2016 - 03:55 PM) updated roster. FB howsare released, TE bowman added to roster

I was referring to Frances actions during WW1, a historical fact on its own that should be enough for people to have a general dislike for a nation.

BUT since you asked, let me answer. YES I have met French people and YES I do dislike them very much.

I was on a trip in Dominican Republic and while there I went rafting. I had the unfortunate displeasure of going with a group of about 30 French and 6 Americans including myself. They were loud, drunk and rude. The Dominican tour guide realized he had a big tip opportunity to he catered very much to their demands. Letting them drink further on the bus ride back and giving them the microphone. That's where things got really ugly!!! They proceeded to spend the next 30 minutes singing what sounded like the French national anthem as LOUD as they could. I simply could not take it anymore and I pleaded with the host the take back the microphone but he didn't, so that's when things got ugly. I got up from the back of the bus, ripped the microphone out of one of their hands and smashed it to the floor and got into a shove match with the frenh people immediately around me. They saw it in my eyes that I was ready to kill one of them. I didn't care about the consequences even though it was 1 vs 30. So YES, while I don't like to stereotype I do not like French people. This partiular group was the loudest, most foul and obnoxious group I have ever had the displeasure to be around. Couple that with their extreme nationalistic pride and an open willingness to throw it in your face and you can see why I would get upset. By the way after I asked niely for them to stop with the anthem, one lady took the mic faced me and sang it literally at the top of her lungs. Assholes.

You've never met a group of 30 or so obnoxious Americans?

And what is wrong with being proud of your nation? Are you not proud of your country, heritage, and people?

This is exactly the problem with the way people view New Yorkers...as loud, obnoxious, inpolite people...when in fact we are not bad people at all...we may not have southern hospitality but most New Yorkers would give you the shirt off their back even if they don't say hello to you on the street.

The point is...you met one group of French people who were all likely similar types of people seeing as they were all hanging out together. Most Americans go to France with the pre-concieved notion that all French people are rude and they all hate Americans...so when you couple that with French people's apparent "inpolitness" you get blind hatred.

I have been to France several times and I have had good experiences with the people and I have had plenty of bad experiences...same as in any country...but if you go to France with respect for the people and the culture and you attempt to speak their language you'll find they are actually nice people. The language is what kills me...if some German guy came up to and started speaking German to you fulling expecting you will understand and it happened everywhere you went in your own city...don't you think you might get a little annoyed? Most French people are fully willing to speak English to you as long as you try to speak their language in their country.

Sorry...I'm ranting...but I just hate blinding hating someone or something because someone else told you to. Not that I am necessarily accusing you in particular of it...but it happens all the time...and I get really annoyed by it.

It seems the World Wars created a large number of stereotypes that some people stupidly still believe in today. There is a large amount of anti-French feelings in the US, Britain and Germany and a lot of people in Britain still hate the Germans even if they were born two decades ago and were hardly affected by the war.
The truth is you will find a load of obnoxious, arrogant people in every country, the worst offenders IMO are my fellow Brits, a lot of who believe they rule the world and everyone else are inferior to them.

Happy belated Independence Day by the way!

I'm too hung over to follow the flow of the conversation. All I know is British people eat funky shit and have rotten teeth. With that said, I love "Lock Stock & 2 Smoking Barrells", "Snatch" and the fact that you guys are the most racist people ever. It's bloody funny.

If nothing else, I hope you learned that the French are pieces of shit from the "Da Vinci Codes".

That was obviously a typo, I was sitting on the crapper and typing my reply on my cell phone.

Forgive and forget, lol. While we're on the topic of WWII I guess you forgive and forget Hitler for his actions right? I mean it was over 50 years ago, and by most accounts he was killed or killed himself before the close of the war. Statements like that make me laugh.

I for one enjoy hating people. It makes my life easier to be able to distinguish between those I hate and those I havent yet found a reason to hate.

Also in reply to another post, are we defending the French for being rude because foreigners are forced to try and communicate via their native tongue? Europe is a giant melting pot. Why arent other nationals considered rude?

Also the example of speaking German is a little out of touch. How about we use Spanish as an example. Look at how many people in this country speak only Spanish. I personally dont deal with them in my line of work, but my father whos a doctor has to deal with plenty of people who dont speak english. You dont see him being rude about it. He just tries his best to communicate or find someone else who can help. I was riding today on the train and there was a coca cola advertisement completely in Spanish. I didnt get rude. It didnt transform me into an asshole. I simply ignored it because it clearly isnt targeting me.

I especially loved the part where you said "whats wrong with having nationalistic pride?" Answer is nothing. Theres nothing wrong with it as long as its done in good taste. You dont see me going to France and screaming in a microphone the star spangled banner.

i can think of 30 annoying americans that live in my community whats your damn point! people got drunk and had a good time and you decided to be a prick...... you couldve joined in couldnt you?


Listen asshole, I dont need you calling me a prick. I signed up for white water rafting, not a booze cruise. And after a long day I just want to take it easy on the even longer bus ride back to my hotel. Ive got no problem with people carrying on and having fun, but why the f*** do they need to do it on the microphone??? You want to sing, then sing...but just because they had a big group doesnt mean its their bus. There was at least 6 people on that bus that were not part of their group, and each and every one of them thought the situation was getting completely out of hand. Not to mention before I ever reacted physically I asked politely that the tour guide please take back the mic. I also consider it hostile behavior for someone to get in your face and scream something even louder after you asked them politely to keep it down. So like I said, they tested me and I was ready to take on the whole bus, and I wasnt alone. The other Americans on the bus were more than ready to lend me a hand. I dont think 6 people would take on 30 people in a fight unless it was warranted.

You're just an idiot and you are clearly trying to provoke me.

That was obviously a typo, I was sitting on the crapper and typing my reply on my cell phone.

Forgive and forget, lol. While we're on the topic of WWII I guess you forgive and forget Hitler for his actions right? I mean it was over 50 years ago, and by most accounts he was killed or killed himself before the close of the war. Statements like that make me laugh.

Hitler is one man...a country is...well...a few more people. You said one mistake in a nation's history is reason enough to dislike them. Excuse me? The people who you are talking about are either dead or near it...it is a whole new generation of France...how can you even say something so ignorant. Just the whole logic behind what you said escapes me...as if you or your country has never done something wrong...slavery anyone?

I for one enjoy hating people. It makes my life easier to be able to distinguish between those I hate and those I havent yet found a reason to hate.

You should research the law of attraction...postive brings positive...

Also in reply to another post, are we defending the French for being rude because foreigners are forced to try and communicate via their native tongue? Europe is a giant melting pot. Why arent other nationals considered rude?

I'm not sure I would really call Europe a melting pot...America is a melting pot...Europe is made up of seperate nations with distinct cultural and historical backgrounds. Besides that...what are you saying here...I aplogize I am not trying to be an ass I honestly do not understand what you are saying?

Also the example of speaking German is a little out of touch. How about we use Spanish as an example. Look at how many people in this country speak only Spanish. I personally dont deal with them in my line of work, but my father whos a doctor has to deal with plenty of people who dont speak english. You dont see him being rude about it. He just tries his best to communicate or find someone else who can help. I was riding today on the train and there was a coca cola advertisement completely in Spanish. I didnt get rude. It didnt transform me into an asshole. I simply ignored it because it clearly isnt targeting me.

That example is different that millions of tourists a year coming to your country and speaking their language to you fully expecting you to speak their language back to you. And we really can't pretend there aren't plenty of Americans who get really, really pissed off when someone speaks Spanish to them...right or wrong it most definitely happens.

I especially loved the part where you said "whats wrong with having nationalistic pride?" Answer is nothing. Theres nothing wrong with it as long as its done in good taste. You dont see me going to France and screaming in a microphone the star spangled banner. And if I were to get drunk and start stumbling around screaming something like that, I would fully expect to get my ass beat. I understand that in my situation they werent doing it in the US, they were doing it in the DR, but in my opinion thats even worse. I happen to think smaller nations like the DR have much more nationalistic pride than the US, and carrying about the way they were, they were just asking to get into trouble. Maybe I did them a favor by shutting them up?

What about French pride have you seen that is obnoxious and done without taste? If you are referring to the group on your tour I will say again...that is one group of people...you could very easily find that same group from Puerto Rico, Ireland, or China. I agree that that situation you were in sounds obnoxious and I likely would have been annoyed aswell...but they don't speak for all of France.
