Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:48 PM) Jordan was #34 with the Jets.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:03 PM) Tanaka is looking like a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Jets added Vick, Chris Johnson, and Eric Decker to the offense.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) And this draft is loaded at the offensive skill positions
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Hopefully we can get anohter starting WR and starting TE in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) Our offense could be much better than last year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) can't get much worse than what it's been the last 2 years
santana Icon : (Today, 03:22 PM) Very cool
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 03:24 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:32 PM) still need another WR
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:33 PM) so i bet powell barely gets any touches this year and goodson gets cut
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:34 PM) Goodson is as good as gone.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:34 PM) With all his legal issues and coming off injury he is done. Possibly even in the NFL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:39 PM) Powell is average anyways.
Chaos Icon : (Today, 03:39 PM) @ProFootballTalk 5m

Per source, Chris Johnson's two-year deal has a base value of $8 million, with another $1 million available in incentives based on yardage.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:40 PM) He does a lot of things well, but isn't talented enough. Johnson has breakaway ability still and Ivory is man beast running the football
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:41 PM) We will get another WR in the draft. Even in round 2 you can get a starting WR
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 04:09 PM) I am still standing by my CB in the first round and WR in the second prediction
santana Icon : (Today, 05:19 PM) The title race is bale
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 05:34 PM) Sidney rice coming in for a visit
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:49 PM) I think the Jets are getting themselves ready to draft best player available
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:49 PM) Last year they stuck to their board
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 06:27 PM) if they sign him I think that means they look to take a CB round 1
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 06:32 PM) “@AdamSchefter: RB Chris Johnson's 2-year deal with Jets has a team option in it for year two. Jets have option to pick up year two at $4M in February 2015.”
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:51 PM) @AlbertBreer 2m
Sidney Rice has agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a one-year deal, per source.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:55 PM) There is really only 2 CBs worth taking at 18
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:56 PM) I rather get a offensive playmaker
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:58 PM) LaMont Jordan was 34
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:59 PM) liar
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) He wore #34 when he played for the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) I should know I met him at an event in his last year with the JETS before he went to Oakland
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 PM) GFYS 0099 you shit talker
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 07:06 PM) http://www.nydailyne...entry-1.1758342
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 07:06 PM) there's no reason we can't have someone off this site on that list too
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 07:08 PM) Rice resigned with Seattle
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 07:08 PM) did you scare him into going to Oakland?

09/17 — When Bryan Thomas was talking with reporters the other day about his fast start out of the box, D-linemate Sione Pouha sat a few lockers to his right saying sotto voce "Sackmaster ... Sackmaster."

"That's not the way I look at it," Thomas told me today about his start.

No, BT is an expressly humble guy who wants to do a good job and help his team. He knows last year's production wasn't up to his 2006 campaign, so he redoubled his efforts this past off-season.

And what has resulted, at least for the first two games of this season, is Sackmaster.

Thomas already has three sacks, after notching just 2.5 all last season. Two of those drops came against Chad Pennington in the opener, and he got No. 3 Sunday vs. New England when, as part of a five-man rush, he got past TE David Thomas (no relation to Bryan, nor to the founder of Wendy's) and grabbed Matt Cassel from behind as the first-time NFL starter was stepping up and away from a mammoth swat from NT Kris Jenkins.

If three sacks in the first two games of the season sounds like a lot for the Jets, well, it is. Thomas is in fact, tied for second place in the NFL, one sack behind former teammate John Abraham, who has four sacks for the Falcons.

And consider this: Abraham, in his six Jets seasons, never got off to the start that Thomas has this year. In fact, the last time a Green & White defender had three sacks after two games, it was DE Shaun Ellis in 2003.

And the last Jet who had more after two games? That would be Mark Gastineau, who had that four-sack game at Indianapolis to open his historic 1984 season.

More Joy of Sacks

As former official Jerry Markbreit might've said, "Upon further review ... "

Upon further review of a play in the Jets-Pats game, Ellis now has two sacks in two games, and the Jets have eight sacks for the season, tied for second in the league with Tennessee, one behind league leader Seattle's nine.

The play in question was Cassel's run down the line of scrimmage midway through the second quarter, at the end of which Ellis got a hold of the Patriots QB's facemask.

The grasp was unfortunate, but it had nothing to do with the play, which was ruled a run for zero yards but, because Cassel motioned as if to pass and then tucked and scrambled, should have been ruled a sack for zero yards. And today Elias Sports Bureau changed that ruling to a sack.

It doesn't take any of the sting out of the Jets' 19-10 defeat. But it did signal an earlier start to the Jets' strong midgame pressure than first recognized. Beginning with that play, Cassel was sacked four times in a span of seven dropbacks.

Ellis, Thomas, et al., will try to keep up their sack pace Monday night against the Chargers and Philip Rivers, who's been dropped only twice so far this season.

So Shaun Ellis has 2 sacks so far. Him getting credit for the sack against the Pats means we are tied in 2nd in sacks this year with the Titans. And the good thing about it is that it is we had 4 sacks against a really good OL in the Pats, and a pretty good OL in Miami.

Were getting to the QB, now we have to force Turn overs, and get our defense off the field!

Even though Thomas admitted to slouching last year, I like his attitude. Last year he was honest about his play, while this year he is showing he is a humble guy.

To be honest he could have reached around for some BS excuse about his play last year, but in the end was honest with himself.

Hopefully he can repeat his 06 form this year and continue as he has played in the opening two games..
