Chris Johnson signs 2 year deal - http://nyjetsfan.com...showtopic=38339
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:34 AM) He was at the Knicks/Nets game yesterday
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:36 AM) Idk about the numbers, I read an article that said that the Jets offered a "attractive" deal to Johnson and that it was always a longshot that he would sign yesterday, but the Jets believe the deal is market value for him

The Jets put together a convincing package on Tuesday to him, on and off the field. Now it is up to him. - See more at: http://m.metro.us/ne...h.cFze6cx8.dpuf

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:33 PM) Hes wearing #28
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:34 PM) He ain't wearing 28
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:34 PM) Well considering they already retired #28 in honor of Curtis Martin, I don't see Johnson wearing #28.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:35 PM) Kind of defeats the purpose of retiring a number.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:39 PM) But I know he better not wear LaMont Jordan's number. Or I'll be pissed.

santana Icon : (Today, 02:41 PM) The title race is real
Chaos Icon : (Today, 02:42 PM) Jordan...what number was he? it was 30sometihng
Chaos Icon : (Today, 02:43 PM) tanaka had a great game today. gave up 2 hits due to bunts. 10K
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

The Miami Dolphins will host the New York Giants in a regular-season game in London later this year.

A person familiar with the NFL's decision told The Associated Press on Thursday that the Dolphins will move a home game overseas. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement will not be made until after commissioner Roger Goodell's Super Bowl news conference Friday.


7 homes games next year Miami....sucks for you

Seriously. If the NFL is trying to sell the game overseas why pick rubbish teams? The Dolphins offense is just about as boring as it gets. They should be pushing teams like the saints, chargers, colts IMO

i think the two losing teams in the championship games should play. ex. saints v. patriots, just to spur some kind of excitement.

Talent wise they're not the best but the Dolphins gained a lot of support over here when the NFL really kicked off over here back in the mid 1980s which makes them a logical choice and the Giants have had a big following over here as they are a New York team and were successful around then and the early 90s too meaning they also got quite a bit of support. Plus they're both East Coast teams so the travelling and jet lag won't be as severe as it would be for a central or western time zone team.

I'm in agreement with VilmaBrit though - it will be hard to decide who to root for if I get tickets (which I hope to do) but as the Giants aren't divisional rivals I'll probably support them for 3 hours.

If you're on NFL UK you can buy the tickets 2 weeks before they go on sale to the rest of the public

Wembley will sell out no matter which teams are playing, every football fan in Europe would kill to be at that game

What the NFL apparently want is at least one, possibly two overseas games a year with every team participating once so it is fair (ie each team loses a home game only once). But that will only be brought in if the London game is a success, which it no doubt will be, as well as the preseason game in China between the Pats and Seahawks,

Should be interesting to see what time slot they put the game in. I couldn't imagine for a game of this maginitude for league expansion would be a normal sunday afternoon game. I would think it would be a Sunday or Monday primetime game. If that, the game would have to be scheduled at 1 am London time.


P.S. Where will the game be played? Is Wimbley ready? Possibly Arsenal's new Emirates Stadium?

It's gonna be played at 6pm our time I think. Wembley ain't ready yet but that's where it's gon be played, Arsenal will probably have a game on that day.

Cheers for the heads upon that.

It will be either Wembley or Twickenham, I think Arsenal's new ground is a little small for the amount of fans that will be there and the pitch size requirements.

As a matter of fact nfluk.com sent me an email with a ticket request form so hopefully I'll be going.
