jets4life Icon : (30 July 2015 - 07:54 PM) Mike Freeman of the B/R has spoken to three NFL sources who all said they think Jets DE Sheldon Richardson Will Never Play Another Down In The Nfl following this arrest.

Freeman’s sources all pointed to the 12-year child and the loaded handgun in the car as two major concerns regarding the incident.
We’ll have more details regarding Richardson as the news is available.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (30 July 2015 - 08:44 PM) do we need to get rid of sheldon?

azjetfan Icon : (30 July 2015 - 09:19 PM) My guess would be by the time he is done with all his suspensions he will not be under contract anymore.
azjetfan Icon : (30 July 2015 - 09:20 PM) The child and gun will do him in.
azjetfan Icon : (30 July 2015 - 09:20 PM) Was he charged with child endangerment?

ROBJETS Icon : (01 August 2015 - 09:45 AM) put in full screen and turn up the volume.. One of the best music videos Ive ever seen. You might want the old lady seeing it though and definitely not the kids. No nudity but Butt galore!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (01 August 2015 - 09:45 AM) https://www.facebook...?type=2&theater
ROBJETS Icon : (01 August 2015 - 09:46 AM) meant might not want your woman seeing it
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 August 2015 - 03:16 PM) Now Wilkerson might be hurt...... f***
azjetfan Icon : (03 August 2015 - 10:20 PM) I'm almost regretting cutting the cord. Since canceling my Direct TV I have been pretty happy with Netflix sling TV and a $30 antenna. Now that football season is around the corner I am itching. It's just so hard to spend $100plus a month to watch a 3 hour game.
azjetfan Icon : (03 August 2015 - 10:21 PM) I'll try streaming when it's not on my locals which I assume will be quite a bit.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 01:49 PM) I got the ticket last year after not having it for years and I'm never going back to life without it again
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 01:50 PM) Even if the jets aren't on I can watch any team I want
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:52 PM) yeah the ticket is nice
SecondHandJets Icon : (Yesterday, 03:06 PM) Hey Santana... how about them Mets?
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 03:36 PM) trading punches
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 03:37 PM) someone needs to get strasburg on the horse placenta

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Factoring in the breeze whistling across the open fields, it was well below freezing when, grudgingly, the Jets took the practice field Wednesday.

For Brett Favre, it was another day in wind-chilled paradise, just another summer day back at Lambeau Field.

While most players moved briskly to the next drill, Favre pantomimed a slow-motion jog that drew laughs. He lined up linebacker Eric Barton for an emphatic butt-slap and, later, caught backup quarterback Kellen Clemens with the same stinging, signature maneuver.

The Jets are coming off four straight victories and, at 7-3, are a game ahead of the pack in the AFC East. New York is in sole possession of first place for the first time in seven years. The Jets meet the 10-0 Tennessee Titans on Sunday, and by the way they went about their business this week at their new facility in suburban New Jersey, you'd swear they think they have a chance.

This time last year the record was 2-8 and the atmosphere in Hempstead, N.Y., was funereal. What's different? Sure, nose tackle Kris Jenkins has been huge (literally, at a listed 349 pounds) in stopping the run and, yes, the offensive line has been terrific with the addition of guard Alan Faneca. Favre, of course, was one of the highest-profile acquisitions in the history of the league, but it's not just his play on the field that has elevated the Jets.

Favre is 39 years old now. But his enthusiasm, his obvious joy for the game, has changed the Jets' chemistry and, maybe, something even greater.

"He's changed the culture totally," said wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery. "When I first met him, he was saying that the two things he was going to do was score touchdowns and have fun. And we've been scoring touchdowns, and we've been having a lot of fun.

"It's more relaxed. Guys are having fun each and every day. Guys are happy to be here."

The veterans will tell you that "fun" was not a word that often surfaced in head coach Eric Mangini's two previous seasons.

"Believe me," Favre said, "there's nothing fun about meetings. There's not a whole lot of fun in practice. There's not a whole lot of fun in losing, but you can make it as easy or as hard as you want. I try to make it easy.

"No one is as competitive as me. No one has as much fun as me. I love to play the game. There's nothing like throwing a touchdown pass. There's nothing like going into Foxborough and beating [the Patriots] when no one gave us a chance."

Mangini has been impressed.

Although he's still learning the nuances of the Jets' playbook, Brett Favre has made noticeable progress.

"He can be focused, get his work done, but keep the group light, keep practice fun, keep the guys excited about each day," Mangini said. "He's got that passion for football, that love of the game, that's very contagious."

Since arriving for his 18th season on Aug. 7, Favre has been working to assimilate the Jets' offense and the particular skills of his teammates. As always with Favre, it has not been a flat-line affair. This, after all, is the man who is the NFL's all-time leader in touchdowns (460) and interceptions (300). Favre threw seven interceptions in a span of three games, but over the past three games there has been only one.

Favre has thrown for 18 touchdowns, balanced by 12 interceptions, and has a tidy 93.0 passer rating, better than his career average of 86.0. Ten games in, he said he is more comfortable with all the moving parts. The biggest play in last week's 34-31 victory over the Patriots came on the winning drive in overtime when Favre converted a third-and-15 with a 31-yard quick seam pass to tight end Dustin Keller. Favre said it was the first game the Jets had included the play in the game plan, and that he worked with Keller through the previous week on mastering its intricacies.

Still, there is always time for horseplay.

"He is the notorious butt-slapper," Cotchery said. "You have to watch out for him because you may be stretching out or something, and he just comes out of nowhere."

Mangini himself was victimized last Thursday night on national television. Moments after the Jets had defeated the Patriots, Favre accepted a hug from Mangini, then as Mangini walked away -- whack!

"At that point, it was perfectly fine," Mangini said. "No problem. I didn't even feel it. Shoot … with what I'm working with, I wouldn't feel much."

When Jenkins said earlier this week, "I think that's the oldest 12-year-old playing in the league," the nose tackle meant it in a nice way.

Favre understands he's on the backside of his career. His news conference answers are exceedingly thoughtful, approaching earnest. When he visits stadiums, he remembers to savor the memories because it could be the last time.

Despite the gee-whiz attitude, the grab-ass antics, Favre feels his age every day.

"If you're chasing your kids around the house, whatever, 'Let's go one more time.' You go, 'Oh…' Believe me, I'm no different," Favre said. "I'm 39 years old. I'm out there running around, and sometimes I'm going, 'Whew, I need to take a break.'

"It's still fun. There's nothing like going to play the undefeated team in football right now. All eyes will be on us. I hope we win the football game. I'm going to do everything I can, but I'm going to have fun in the process."

I mean he has been a godsend for this organization. All the Jets needed was a reason to believe and somebody to follow that has been to the "promised land", and now they have both.
