Jetsfan115 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 02:52 PM) any CBs that are decent on the trade block or facing salary cuts?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:00 PM) I wouldnt cut Hill watch him go to NE and turn into Randy Moss
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) I'm just glad there aren't anymore greedy bastards on the team to deal with
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) Or street thugs
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) f*** a CB problem
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2014 - 03:49 PM) need 1 more in the fantasy league
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 08:33 PM) Dimitri suspended for the rest of preseason. I'm sorry, I know we are bone dry at corner these days but they should have cut this prick on the spot . He's going to get torched regardless this year and I'd rather cut ties with any potential cancerous attitutudes before the season even starts.
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 08:34 PM) Where I come from you take responsibility for your actions. Not showing up for a game is cowardly and selfish. f*** him
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 08:36 PM) Also he doesn't know what the acronym AWOL means so he's also an idiot. No wonder he's never been anything but a journeyman corner is this league.
azjetfan Icon : (26 August 2014 - 09:11 PM) So how do you really feel?
RetireChrebet Icon : (26 August 2014 - 11:18 PM) I think my last three posts pretty much summarize how I feel haha. He's making 1.5 mill this year and no call no shows because his feeling are hurt. Would rather you play corner azjetfan than this guy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (27 August 2014 - 08:12 AM) Need 1 more for FFB!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 08:39 AM) Stephen Hill is going to get cut, guy sucks. Greg Salas is a better football player and deserves a spot over him
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 11:27 AM) So when do we show up to 115s house with pitchforks, tar and feathers?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 12:03 PM) i'd rather see idzik go then hill. fire idzik
bleedsgreen Icon : (27 August 2014 - 12:21 PM) Hill is such a disappointment. I really was hopping for so much when he scored 2 TDs his first game
MikeGangGree... Icon : (27 August 2014 - 03:11 PM) We need to get the J-E-T-S chant back this year to the way it was
MikeGangGree... Icon : (27 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) idk if any of u guys went to any of the games last year[Im sure some of u did] but im not a fan of the drumline leading the chant
MikeGangGree... Icon : (27 August 2014 - 03:14 PM) its not the same as 70,000 people doing it during every kickoff and after every score
Jetsfan115 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 05:43 PM) injuries and poor QB play aren't good for a WR to develop
Jetsman05 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 06:08 PM) 115 and Hill. Lol!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) the excuses, Hill is just a terrible football player. no debate, just a fact. guy is soft as shit as well
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:43 AM) right cause all our other WRs were lighting it up
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:04 PM) Hill is useless bro lol
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:05 PM) All I can say I streamed this game and if anyone thinks about recording it from NFL Network at 4pm Eastern Saturday.....DONT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:07 PM) This game was pure sh1t. Even though it was back up players the Jets got totally destroyed in this game. After seeing this game Im really worried about the Jets starting core because these backup guys looked like they shouldn't have even been on the field at all. I just hope the starters are 3000 times better than these guys that played in game 4
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) The Jets got horse f*cked by the Eagles in this game.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:24 PM) we are hosed in the secondary
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:26 PM) we need to cut this assclown patterson
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:34 PM) did Hill get cut yet?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:36 PM) lol. We might need to look at the Eagles cuts for possible 2nd and 3rd stringers
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:36 PM) If they keep ZHill after this game I will be shocked.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:38 PM) Philly gave us a worse ass whipping than Detroit gave Buffalo. only difference is we scored
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:42 PM) Im just wondering what manning will put up on our secondary? 70?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:12 PM) who cares about getting destroyed in a preseason game, especially the 4th one. Most of these guys won't even make the team
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:15 PM) Hill cut yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:18 PM) FIRE IDZIK
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:21 PM) Yeah this game means nothing...except to Stephen Hill (who fumbled lol) and 115
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:23 PM) Hill is a bum, hes pretty much never shown much football skill. The Jets fucked up big time taking him over Alshon Jeffery.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:29 PM) I'm still pissed off about that
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 10:43 PM) Its not that Im worried about the preseason game itself. i could care less about that. Its the fact of how bad we got destroyed. And some of the guys will be on the team and others on the fringe so getting destroyed like that doesnt fill me with confidence
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 10:44 PM) It would be one thing if it was just the second half or 4th quarter but this was the whole game. especially getting destroyed in the 1st quarter and at least part of the 2nd where a lot of the guys will be on the team
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) 2nd and 3rd stringers making the team had something to prove and even our 2nd stringers got owned so yes Im very concerned. The first stringers need breaks and also if some of them get injured they need to step up. So no after this performance start to finish Im very concerned

Pats Kraft future plan: Owner promises to spend to salary cap

By John Tomase
Boston Herald Sports Writer
Saturday, February 3, 2007 - Updated: 02 0 AM EST

MIAMI - Patriots owner Robert Kraft yesterday guaranteed the team will spend to the salary cap in an effort to improve a squad that fell one minute short of the Super Bowl.

“We’re always going to spend to and over the cap,” Kraft said yesterday at the Super Bowl following a press conference by commissioner Roger Goodell. “We’re not one of those teams that puts the money in our pockets. We’re committed to spending.”

The Patriots began the 2006 season with roughly $10 million in cap space, the result of failed contract negotiations with Ty Law and Deion Branch. When those players ended up elsewhere, the Pats went to Plan B, spreading their money around to Richard Seymour , Dan Koppen and others.

The result was a club that may have lacked reinforcements, but at the same time had positioned itself to make a run in 2007. The Patriots could have as much as $30 million in salary cap space to play with in free agency, giving them a chance to chase an impact player like Ravens linebacker Adalius Thomas.

“In terms of spending, you have to look where we are at the end of the season, not the beginning,” Kraft said. “With all due respect to my friends in the media and the fans, they don’t understand the intricacies of the cap. You look where we were at the end of the year and where we’ll be next year, and it will be the same thing.

“We’re different than some teams. We’re not just planning for this year. We’re trying to be good for a number of years. Our management team has shown over the last four to five years that wise planning has allowed us to stay in the hunt.”

When Kraft looks back at 2006, he sees much to like. The Patriots finished 12-4, the third-highest victory total in franchise history. They won a playoff game for the fourth straight season, something no other team can claim in that span. And though they fell short of the Super Bowl, it wasn’t by much.

“Our performance this year, with the challenges we faced, was one of the best since we’ve owned the team,” he said. “Believe me, no one’s more disappointed than I that we’re not playing in this game. We had our shot, but if you think back over the year, with the injuries we had, the field, and everything that went on and we ended up 14-5, I mean, man. That’s a pretty good accomplishment.”

Kraft has plenty of reasons for optimism. In addition to the salary cap space, the Patriots also own two first-round picks in the 2007 draft and 12 picks total, all of which can be used to complement a veteran core built around quarterback Tom Brady and an outstanding defensive line.

“I’m very excited about the future of this team,” Kraft said. “We’re in a pretty good position with the salary cap. We have two picks in the bottom of the first round, which is really one of the best strategic points in terms of value.

“The first eight or 10 picks you have to pay so much, it’s like signing an unrestricted veteran player who has proven himself. Unless the player is a great player, that can affect how you manage your cap.”

In the end, Kraft said, his management team led by head coach Bill Belichick and personnel man Scott Pioli will continue doing everything it can to keep the Patriots in contention, and that includes spending.

“We want to make sure our fans understand we have a fixed budget,” he said. “Sometimes we make decisions that people can’t relate to as fans. Believe me, I understand that. I can assure our fan base that every decision we make is to put us in the best position to win games.

“With our cap position, draft situation, and the group of people we have running things, I’m excited about next year. We have a tougher schedule, but that’s part of the privilege of being successful. I wouldn’t want to have it any other way.” iagree.gif
(and I believe we will spend wisely too)

We should spend too, we need to get a #1 CB badly, if we dont we wont make the playoffs next year. We need to sign either Samuels or Clements..
We also need to get a DE. Plus a pass rushing specialist. Bigger d-line. We also need a good redzone target since we really dont have a good one. I would say we should sign Daniel Graham, him and Baker would make a very respectable TE duo...

I don't know about Daniel Graham. I don't like the idea of picking up the patriots leftovers. We should gain our own identity.

Graham is a good player though, he has speed and hands to stretch the field from the TE postion, and is physical and a good blocker, he would be a good addition for our team.

Every team is going to spend this offseason in FA due to the extra cap space afforded to each team by the new CBA. There aren't going to be many cap casualties and June 1st cuts because of the new cap.
If Baker where utilized more and our OLine afforded Chad a little more time then he would be a top redzone target so I don't think TE needs to be addressed except for perhaps bringing in a backup. CB should definitely be targeted through FA as drafting one would mean the rookie would have to adjust to the rigours of the NFL and would in most cases not be able to contribute early on. Guard and RT should also be looked to be addressed when FA begins.

Im just saying Graham, because Graham is a amazing blocker too. It would be a advantage to us to have 2 good TEs that both can catch and block. Ryans can block, but he isnt a good recieving threat. I agree though, CB has to be our #1 priority in the FA, because there is 2 #1 CBs in Clements and Samuel, and drafting one wouldnt be good because there isnt alot of depth in the draft there. I think they should sign Dielman or Steinbach for OG. Both are good guards and are young.

Is Dielman a RFA or UFA?

Yea right!... shut up b!tch! Since when?!. This sounds like Patriots spewage to me. A team tighter then fort knox is giving the media little tidbits like this? F-OFF!

Their probably saying these things so other teams like the Bills,Jets and Phins catch wind of it and think we have to sell the farm because the Pats are "telling" people they are going to sell theirs.

Give them credit for trying to F around but I'm not buying that for 1 second
