Jets 0-2 vs bills this year. Does Rex Ryan survive the year?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:55 AM) Like how do you get blown out by a team that didn't practice while you had 2 weeks to prepare?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:55 AM) That kind of stuff may force Woody to make the big changes and fire everyone
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:55 AM) John Idzik has handled the QB situation terribly. 2 times he pretty much handed the job to his draft pick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 AM) Besides Sheldon Richardson, his drafts have been awful.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 AM) Maybe Woody will clean house and go all out for Jim Harbaugh, that probably won't happen though but it would be a franchise changer.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:07 AM) Harbaugh would be amazing...but because it makes sense it won't be done
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 AM) According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets blocked coach Rex Ryan from talking to Mehta about a bye-week visit to his ailing father, legendary NFL defensive guru Buddy Ryan. Buddy, who rose to prominence as defensive coordinator of the ’85 Bears and then coached the Eagles and Cardinals, is battling cancer.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:52 AM) Mehta interprets the muzzling of Rex Ryan as proof positive that, once the season ends, Ryan will no longer be the team’s head coach. Apparently, the team fears that Rex would become more sympathetic in the eyes of the fan base if he’s dumped by the team at a time when his father is fighting a serious illness.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:05 AM) Mehta is an idiot
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:25 AM) If colt McCoy lights it up do the jets make a move?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:27 AM) I don't even care what they do for a while
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:28 AM) The team is a catastrophe
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:29 AM) I didn't see the game
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:29 AM) I remember the first bills game though I'm guessing it was like that with more sleeping in the end zone
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:32 AM) I'm with 0099...I hope they keep getting destroyed
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 11:33 AM) it's a very Jets-esque move to sign McCoy if he does well
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:53 AM) I think they sign RGIII, Cutler, or Bradford
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 12:10 PM) why not all three
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:11 PM) Knowing this team, I wouldn't put that past them
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:07 PM) RAUL FOR QB
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 02:10 PM) the only real choice
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 02:10 PM) almost uefa time
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:11 PM) RAUL>SMITHSIAH, JUST ACCEPT IT
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:22 PM) FIRE IZDICK
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:07 PM) Rocking the atletico kit today 4-0 THE RAUL INFLUENCE
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:15 PM) Haha you should make that into some kind of logo and put it in your sig

ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:53 PM) I hope Dirty Sanchez gets beat by the Cowgirls even though I would prefer to see a tie so neither team wins
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:00 PM) Look at what a great system can do for a QB, Sanchez looks like a different QB with the Eagles.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:00 PM) Scanning the field and making quick decisions, I like how Chip has Sanchez throwing on the run which he was always great at.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:01 PM) I really hope we finally bring in a good offensive minded coach.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 05:45 PM) I really can't wait for this season to be done and over with

The Jets figure to make an offer to free-agent safety Jim Leonhard, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. Leonhard played for new Jets coach Rex Ryan last season.In four seasons, Leonhard has split time between Baltimore and Buffalo. He is still young enough that he may not have reached his peak yet, but last season was his best. He had 69 tackles (55 solo) and an interception returned for a touchdown last year. http://www.fantasysp.com/player/nfl/Jim_Leonhard/226543

Elam is way too slow for coverage. They want a pure FS so they can turn Rhodes into a SS to allow him to basically roam the field looking to make a play instead of being deep in coverage. Elam is probably going to end up being a special teams player.

poor guy, i wish there was a way to get him on the field, because he is a playmaker, and has high energy, something lacking on our defense.

He's a liability in coverage. He's a good blitzer so maybe he'll see some playing time in a 46. Then again probably not.

This is a good move. Elam should still see some playing time in certain packages. Smith is a goner.

Its a slight at someone now to be a role player? I think we need more ROLE players. I'm the biggest Elam supporter on the board, was calling for him before everyone else wanted him. But Leonard is much more a complete player.

I'll take the "role player" Leonard in a second so we can swap over Rhodes.

I don't know what the hype is for Leonard. I know he had a good season but how many 1 hit wonders are their in the NFL?.. TONS!!, you know, the guys that have a great year and can't be found the next. Leonard seems like the flavor of the year to me.

Personally I think we need to draft one and there is a damn good one in Missori

Hes a little guy with a big heart. He is pretty fast, he was all over the place in the playoffs. I would take him, he won't get much money anyways.

Moore isn't that good from Mizzou. Talented, but I never saw the hype around him

The fact that he's Rex's guy and he wants him here is enough for me.

Im a little iffy on him also. And I like elam, but he is a BIG problem in pass coverage. I do feel like we should resign him though. Good depth player. great blitzer

One guy I would look at in the draft is Rashad Johnson from alabama. Could probably be had in the 2nd round. I dont think he slips to the 3rd.
