ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 March 2015 - 03:29 PM) So I've been off the grid for a week and not much has happened in JETS nation besides the assclown fireman ed trying to weasel his way back into the good graces of JETS fans
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (21 March 2015 - 03:34 PM) how is he the ass clown? it was jets fans who attacked the dude .
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 08:46 PM) And that is why I said Villanova and Wisconsin didn't deserve a #1 seed. Nova owns a team gifted a spot in the tourney then gets owned buy a team not even ranked in the top 25 in the next round
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 08:49 PM) By schedule end of season rankings. Nova split games with #22 Georgetown and beat #24 Butler and #25 VCU.....not much of a resume for a #1 seed only facing ranked teams only ranked in the 20`s
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 08:52 PM) Wisconsin was even worse against ranked teams. Lost to # 4 Duke Lost to #12 maryland and beat #23 Michigan state twice. Not much f a resume for a 1 seed
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 08:56 PM) As I stated before Virginia and Arizona shouldve been #1 seeds. Vrinia only lost to one ranked opponent. Duke. and Arizona beat all their ranked opponents. and all their ranked opponents were top ten and top 15 ranked. Don't know wtf the NCAA was thinking gifting Nova and Consin 1 seeds with shitty ranked opponents wins and losses.
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 08:59 PM) Losing to Duke is one thing but Wisconsin losing to two ranked teams and one of them ranked 12 shouldn't have give them a 1 seed. Bye Bye Nova
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 09:01 PM) Wisconsin has skill and size though I want Az and Consin to face each other in the elite 8 to see who is tougher
ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 09:05 PM) Im proud od the Pac 12. Like everyone else I didnt feel UCLA deserved to be in the tourney. They got owned a good bit in the regular season but only 4 Pac 12 teams made it and 3 have moved on to the 16 so far. If Oregon beats Wisconsin tomorrow all 4 teams will be in the sweet 16.
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:26 PM) What was that we were saying about Virginia and a 1
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:26 PM) seed?
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25

ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 06:47 AM) hahahaha, it isnt European Football!
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!

Shonn Greene
RB, Iowa

War Room analysis
Inside running: Consistently attacks the hole and punishes defenders. Is patient; waits for blockers to open the hole. Shows solid flexibility. Is able to knock the tackler backward. Falls forward for an extra yard or two when going down. Does an excellent job of keeping his legs churning after contact. Is able to easily run through arm tackles and keep his feet against hard hits. Grade: 8.5

Outside running: Does not show the explosive burst to consistently get around the corner. Is able to make sharp cuts. Is very effective running through defensive back and linebacker tackles on the edge. Grade: 6.5

Blocking: Is not an experienced lead blocker. Gives questionable effort in pass protection. Needs work on his technique. Grade: 4.5

Hands/routes: Is only adequate catching the ball. Does not consistently keep his eyes on the ball. Will fight the ball at times. Is inexperienced running routes, catching only 11 passes during his college career. Is a strong and productive runner after the catch. Grade: 5.5

Durability: Shows toughness and competitiveness. Was only a full-time starter for one season. Needs to prove he can handle an entire NFL season. Grade: 5.5

Bottom line: Green's Iowa career is somewhat of a concern because he was a one-year wonder. He was a backup in 2005 and '06 and was declared academically ineligible in '07. He has many of the tools to be a starting tailback in the NFL, but his limitations in pass protection and lack of explosiveness could keep him from being a first-round selection.

sounds like a goaline type guy. Straight up the gut for a few yards. Leon will be our home run guy.

Shonn Greene-RB-Jets Apr. 26 - 10:19 am et

The Jets traded their third, fourth, and seventh-round picks to move up eleven spots in the third round to select Iowa RB Shonn Greene with the No. 65 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

The Jets aren't shy going for the players they want, giving up five picks and three veterans for two rookies in Mark Sanchez and Greene. It's expensive, but we love the fit. Greene, at 235 pounds, is a classic bruiser who will pound teams in the red zone. But he can also block and catch passes, making him a major dynasty sleeper. This crushes Thomas Jones' 2009 value because they will likely split carries and Jones will lose touchdowns, assuming Jones is even back with the team. Greene will probably take over in 2010.

"It's like going from Alcatraz to Dorney Park."

It is better to destroy than create what is meaningless, so the picture will not be finished.

Seems a bit expensive but if we come out of this weak draft with a franchise QB & RB I'm sure all of us would take it in a heartbeat.

He's not a franchise RB. He's not going to out run anybody. he's a bruiser with some moves on the inside. We have a good O-line so he'll do fine. He's no Moreno.

He is a Bradon Jacobs clone. Will pound the hole (ROFL) and lives for contact. I can see him and Leon leading the attack for several years.

His burst will surprize you. Yea the speed numbers don't jump out at ya. He reminds me of a young bettis style. I wasn't a fan of his at first, but he grows on you as he just keeps banging.
He is alot more than just a goal line type.
I watched all his games since he was at Iowa. Hope he works out for Jets.
After last years #6, we have to have some luck coming our way?
He is just so truely humble...and is really hard to find today and that carries him

I'll take that next season

His report states a one year starter & seen limited playing time. I see this as a plus in a smash mouth RB.

In an interview on newyorkjets.com he answers a questions about his running style. Saying "Yea I love contact, I love the Violence" .. I think we know the kinda people Rex likes.

I'm a Big Ten guy also (Penn State) and I got to see Greene run a bunch and let me tell you, he can fuckin flat out ball. He reminds me of a Bettis/W.Parker hybrid. Thats almost the perfect comparison to how this guy plays. He's got wheels, don't let the skeptics fool you. I saw him outrun LB's @ OSU and PSU all season long, and his initial burst will certainly surprise. I'm with you Jetshenderson, I think he could be a great player. Rex Ryan and Tanny know what their doing.


p.s. can we please think of a new name for those two? Tangini was perfect, haha. Now what? RyanBaum? lol. T-Rex?
