Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:51 PM) Milliner did suffer a high ankle sprain, that sucks. could linger all year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:52 PM) I think Patterson sucked vs the Colts because he was injured, which he always is.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:49 PM) As much as people criticized Tannanbaum for spending too much. It's starting to look like Idzik is going to be too cheap.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:52 PM) You get what you pay for and when you let quality players go because you don't want to pay them, this is what happens. You're left with scrub players.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 07:55 PM) I'm still on board with the Idzik plan. Even with Revis and Revis we still are not going to the SB this year. But the down time sucks. If Milliner comes back healthy by week 3 or so we should be fine.
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.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
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 - 07:37 PM) Corey Ivy CB
36 Jim Leonhard SS/PR
43 Haruki Nakamura FS
25 Evan Oglesby CB
20 Ed Reed FS
22 Samari Rolle CB
39 Daren Stone FS
41 Frank Walker CB
31 Fabian Washington in 2008
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
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 : (Yesterday, 01:07 PM) I'm very excited with the amount of preseason touchdowns the Jets have
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:21 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:22 PM) Calvin Pryor and Darrin Walls will start tomorrow
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) The SIMPSONS MARATHON has been on for almost 12 hours...
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 PM) Sanchez looks so much more confident and better in Chip's offense than he did with us
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:50 PM) EVERY SIMPSONS EVER!!!!!
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 08:02 AM) Preseason doesn't matter at all
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 11:10 AM) anyone have a stream for the preseaosn agme by chance?

it isnt like the palestinians have a joystick and can control all the other arab nations. they didnt make them or tell them to invade israel and if you think the palestinians were the masterminds behind these wars, then youve been misinformed. just because two countries have the same ethnic population, doesnt make them connected at the hip and in control of each other. they have attacked israel, but not during the wars you named. they have attacked them with a type of urban guerilla warfare


come to think of it this whole post is way off base. i never said that the palistinians were controlling the arabs. you were implying in earlier posts that the palistinians had nothing to do with the 4 wars that were brought against israel. i was trying to illustrate that they did have something to do with those wars. who said anything about who was pulling the strings? you did. if anything the arab nations came together, in secret, and planned surprise attacks. dont try to confuse the issue.

im not trying to confuse the issue at all, im replying to what you said....

first you said that the palestinians fought those wars with the israelis. i said they didnt, then you said they didnt fight them but they werent opposed to them, i said that not opposing them is a lot different than being the ones fighting the wars. you said it was a technicality and that they were the ones fighting the wars, if not literally. then i said that the palestinians do not control the rest of the arab nations, as you were implying (or as i thought you were implying,guess i was wrong)

please clarify

theres no confusing issues here, just responding

you misunderstood what i meant when i mentioned 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973. i tried to clarify what i meant when i mentioned that it is israel vs. the arab nations. palestine is a part of those arab nations. that is what side they are on. so during those wars you could say that palestinians were a part of those wars on the arab side against the israelis. i was trying to remind you of their history and not talk about the minor or major palestinian involvment in those 4 wars let alone what has happened in the past 2 years.

the bottom line of what i'm trying to convey to you is how can you blame the jews for excluding the palestinians considering thier history together? the jews dont keep the palestinians out of israel because they treat the jews nicely. how can you expect the jews to negotiate with you if you dont even recognize them as a soverign nation? again. i'm not glad that people like arafat are no longer with us but i'm not shedding too many tears either.

i expect this to happen because of two facts:

1. the israelis were in the same position years ago and they fought against it with very strong conviction. they hated it. so to impose it on the palestinians, tarnishes the people that fought for their freedom int he past. and it also makes them very hypocritical, especially when they always like to bring up the past.

2. the suicide bombing are a product of the "apartheid" (you may think that is some kind of radical word used in this context, but it is very true. not only is there a palestinian ghetto [two of them] but there is a wall that is being constructed to reinforce that) as soon as the palestinians get some of what they want, 99% of the bombings will stop (that 1% is just the chance that some radical, they exist in every country,decides he isnt happy) some of what they want is an equal, independant state. you cannot say that what israel is doing is only to stop these bombings because the bombing are the result of the israeli occupation.

about the apratheid and everything. how can you expect them to live together, when not only are the palestinians bombing israelis and the israelis are bombing palestinians (under the cloak of the military) but a wall is being put up to seperate them. it is great to be optimistic, but at the same time you have to be realistic

are you referring to the most rescent occupation or the zionist occupation in general?

you should read about all of the clashes that occured in the 20s and 30s. this is when the zionists started to harbor ideas of isolation between the two cultures. it isn't anything as new as a few years old.

i am talking about the point (cant really have a date put on it) after israel became a state, probably right after the seven days war, when the palestinians became second class citizens and the israelis were so infued with US money that they could do whatever they want int he country. and just to remind you (not saying you didnt know it) when the zionists were being oppressed by the palestinians, they used the EXACT same tactics to fight them. the X- factor is the US backing israel, and that will never happen for the palestinians.

i am well aware it isnt a few years old or a few decades old for that matter

i think thats wrong that it happened but i'm just saying it happened for a reason. i hope that they can work it out. they can go on the road that they have been going on and keep killing eachother or they can learn to live in one israel together. 3 immediate possibilities:

1. jews get rocked in a war and its 79 a.d. all over again.
2. israel stays intact and the fighting continues
3. israel stays intact and jew and palestinians learn to coexist in one israel.

#1 isn't too pretty. if you've ever heard of the masada complex you know what i mean. especially since they have nukes.
#2 sucks because people will be talking about it in football forums for generations to come.
#3 would be the best scenario.

i see what you mean about the israelis blaming 1% of the arabs to justify building a wall between the two cultures. i also think that they are partly justified in building the wall though. you cant just say that they do it to have israel all to themselves. there really are bombers that blow up civilians in israel all the time. i dont blame them for trying to defend themselves. i think they might be going about it the wrong way but i still know they are doing it with the intention of trying to defend their people and not just because of greed.

i agree, but....

#4 the west bank and gaza are somehow united by a seperate highway or something and those two regions form a country with no israeli influence or occupation. they will have a completely seperate government, economy, and everything.

the issue of jerusalem and who lays claim to the holy land will never be solved, but it is in between #1 and #2 and it is a lot more likely and can happen a lot sooenr with a lot less bloodshed than #3

#3 is the only one that doesn't involve bloodshed. i guess thats why it isn't going to happen. the UN controlls jeruselem because everyone lays claims to it. that is exactly where and why fighting erupted between zionists and palestinians in 1929.

you are telling me that if you take these two groups of people that have killed and been killed by each other and just throw them under one roof, there isnt going to be any bloodshed?

no no no no... the violence will escalate to a point that he area has never seen

i see what you are saying now. #4 where the west bank is a seperate palestinian country. right? i am all for something like that. i think that jeruselem would still need to remain neutral though. maybe not.

Sorry, I kept up the discussion quite a bit in the Iraq War thread, and this one just isn't as stimulating to me. Both sides are to blame, and you guys (Ellis and Locojet) seem to basically agree on that and are more arguing the fine points. If someone was to say one side was right or wrong, I'd jump in.

As it stands, the only thing I can still say is that Israel is entirely dependent on US money and as long as they have "our" money to fund their oppressing the palestinians, they won't negotiate in any realistic way. I don't think the government of Israel is actually interested in giving any ground, and as long as they have the means to not give any up (literal or theoretical) they won't.

im jewish. normally i would say come on lets get along you take some land will keep some land. but my religion beleves that isreal is ours. they are being nice enough of giving the palistiniens land such as the gaza strip and more parts. isreal is so small almost asl small as nj and if it splits imagine how small it could be. the killings are both terrible and i wish we could resolve this by talking it out or some kind of peaceful way.i know this may not be as long as all your posts but this is my knolege of the war from a 14 year old boy
