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

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 : (28 August 2014 - 10:43 AM) right cause all our other WRs were lighting it up
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 07:04 PM) Hill is useless bro lol
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 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 : (28 August 2014 - 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 : (28 August 2014 - 09:09 PM) The Jets got horse f*cked by the Eagles in this game.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:24 PM) we are hosed in the secondary
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:26 PM) we need to cut this assclown patterson
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:34 PM) did Hill get cut yet?
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) lol. We might need to look at the Eagles cuts for possible 2nd and 3rd stringers
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) If they keep ZHill after this game I will be shocked.
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:38 PM) Philly gave us a worse ass whipping than Detroit gave Buffalo. only difference is we scored
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:42 PM) Im just wondering what manning will put up on our secondary? 70?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 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 : (28 August 2014 - 10:15 PM) Hill cut yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) FIRE IDZIK
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:21 PM) Yeah this game means nothing...except to Stephen Hill (who fumbled lol) and 115
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 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 : (28 August 2014 - 10:29 PM) I'm still pissed off about that
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 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 : (28 August 2014 - 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 : (28 August 2014 - 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
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:39 AM) Meh...you're reading too much into it
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:40 AM) Even in seasons where the Jets blew, I haven't seen anyone refer to the preseason to complain. Ever.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:15 AM) fire izdik http://theredzone.or...rs/Default.aspx
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:17 AM) I picture Rob and 115 as real life friends
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:01 PM) Holmes can still play, problem is that hes also a cancer. He wore out his welcome with the Jets
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:23 PM) did Hill get cut?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet

A CASSEL CAVEAT
Posted by Mike Florio on November 17, 2008, 8:25 a.m.

Of the teams that receive mentions in the ongoing discussion regarding the 2009 destination of Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel, the Jets present the most intriguing possibility.

The defection of Cassel from the Pats to the Jets would further that whole Fredo vibe thatís going on between the franchises, and it would create some potentially intriguing Brady vs. Cassel battles, twice per year.

But thereís an important thing to keep in mind as the coming free agency period approaches: The Jets currently have the worst cap situation of any NFL team for the coming league year.

Even if quarterback Brett Favre retires after 2008, which would free up $13 million in cap space, past contracts are expected to create significant problems via the achievement of incentives and escalators by various players.

Whenever a team goes out and brings in a ton of free agents in any given season, a salary cap day of reckoning eventually arises. As we understand it, that day is coming for the Jets on the first day of the 2009 league year.

The specific numbers arenít clear, but the thinking in some circles is that the Jets will have a very hard time competing for Cassel or any other high end free agent in 2009, especially as players try to get even more money than usual with the possibility of a work stoppage looming.

The other thing to keep in mind is that, if the Patriots have the cap space to carry Casselís cap number for a short period of time, the franchise tag likely is coming for Cassel, and then the Pats will trade him. And we suspect that the Pats wonít choose to do any business with the Jets, if New England has any other option.

Tannenbaum is no idiot. All the contracts that were given out have escape clauses in them, I believe Pace has a $9 million roster bonus come next March, he'll probably never see it or it will be pushed into the up and coming uncapped year.

I wouldn't want Cassell. I think the team makes him look alot better than he is.

We aren't going after Cassel either way. If we were, I would be PISSED!!!!! I believe more in what we have over Cassel, I just don't see that much out of Cassel. I see him playing within the system which is a good thing, but what I mean is if his WRs aren't wide open or make serious YAC he does nothing. He isn't that accurate, the only throw I saw that was great was the one to Moss, but I believe that is a fluke.
I believe more in Clemens as a eventual starter than Cassel, all I see is Cassel being a good back up for the Patriots. I even like more out of Ratliff! At least Ratliff was showing the ability to throw a pass on spot to a WR. Mark my words, whoever signs Cassel to be their Starting QB will be effed.

Who you kiddin, you'd throw Clemens out like last week's garbage if the Jets had even a remote chance of getting Brady Quinn.

Am I the only one that would choose Tyler Thigpen over Matt Cassell at this point? Thigpen has no O-line and his only target is a TE past his prime and he's looked every bit as good at Cassell. Now let them switch teams and see who does better.

I never said I wouldn't, I just wouldn't want Cassel. Thats my opinion, I think hes nothing. Will be a waste for any team that goes after him. I doubt we go after him either way.

I stiill think it is funny how some of you are such idiots to put down Cassel so easily.He has made leaps and bounds in the short time he has played.Some of you have blinders on not to see this.I think the man has a future as a starting qb.The way he is playing now more experience is only going to make the man better.
At least Mr_Jet also sees this.When Brady came in off the bench the same crap was said about him and look what he is now.
Clemens did alot worse his first year and we dont know what the hell to expect out of Ratliff.
Cassel has the Pats at 6-4 with no running game and anyone that says the qb position isnt the hardest job on the team has no true knowledge of football.Whether you like the Pats or not anyone who cant respect what he has done is an idiot.
With no running game that system belief is bullshit.Its not like the receivers are holding the ball at the snap.
That comeback he had against us at the end of the game was literally amazing and no qb could have done it anny better.
That man has obvious skills and with no practice over the years to establish good timing with the first team to pick things up as quickly as he has done is really impressive in my opinion.

I guess we're idiots because we don't see Cassel as a starter.... Seriously bump this thread if you want too, but I bet he doesn't amount to anything as a starter. I can see the Patriots retaining him also, as they are going to need a quality backup with Brady having a knee injury.
But if he goes to a team to become a starter you can bump this thread, because I doubt he does shit as a starter for another team. The guy can't complete anything 20 yards out, what he has like 11 completions all year 20+ yards out. Thats horrible. Shows me he has little accuracy.

He's a system Q.B. He has NO downfeild passing attack. The scheme is set up for him to throw 10 yard routes all game. I guess you can chalk me up as being an idiot too.

Let's clear one thing up. Not being able to do something and not trying to do something are two totally different things. Cassel does not try to throw those passes because he is not asked to throw 20+ yard passes. What is the point of throwing a 20+ yard pass when Moss is doubled covered on almost every play. They use Moss to draw double coverage which leaves Welker or Gaffney open. What is the use of having 3 receivers 30 yards down the field, when they already have one receiver that is almost always double covered? It makes sense to let Moss run down the field with two DBs and keep Welker and Gaffney below 20 yards from the line of scrimmage. 1. That will be a more accurate pass, 2. it's enough to get a first down and 3. it makes the running backs receiving threats too (spreading the defense). But you have to have a QB that can find the wholes in the defense and get the ball there quickly. That whole may not always be 20+ yards.

This sounds so much like the old Clemens vs. Pennington debates. Arm strength vs. accurate passing; and it's the same folks that were arguing about how great, important, and wonderful arm strength is who are now complaining about Cassel's style of play. It wasn't Favre's arm strength that won the game last Thursday. It was smart accurate passing that kept him from getting an INT and helped win the game. I'd rather see an 11 yard pass with the WR getting 8 yards of YAC, for a first down; than see a 25 yard pass that gets picked off. Long balls are pretty to see but not when the other team picks it off and starts running the other way.

P.S. The TD pass to Gaffney was for 19 yards, that's pretty damn close to 20 yards so he can throw a 20 yard pass when he needs to.

I can't believe you guys got me defending a Patriots player. Look pass the uniform.

I've seen he try to throw downfield, he throws it way off most of the time. He has very little accuracy... Most of his throws are within 15 yards. You can think what you want, think that hes some great starter for all I care, but I guarantee you he doesn't do shit as a starter on another team.

Yeah right. You guarantee it huh, well alright Mr. Namath. I never said he'd be great I didn't even say I wanted him on the Jets, all I said was he's got talent and potential and that I wouldn't be opposed to it if they got him.

The whole reason I am saying you are an idiot is because the man has played what now?????Ten games now in what six or seven years???? And you expect him to be accurate right away in all his throws.I dont care what sport it is or how great the greatest star is in that sport timing and accuracy take time and lots and lots of practice.I dont know how many times I have heard in the NFL that a qb and receiver arent in time together because they havent practiced enough.

You want an examples?.Take Lowery for instance,he is making all kinds of rookie mistakes but we can all see he has skills.No one here doesnt think he will get better with more experience.How about Revis?the leap he has made from last year and he was pretty good then too.Oh how about Favre coming here and looking pretty uncomfortable his first few games before getting the hang of it.Hell plus Favre was down right shitty his first year in Atlanta.Or how about Eli Manning and how inconsistant he was for years and suddenly mid last year and pretty much all of this year he is looking like Peyton.Need I go on?Hell look at Portis. I have followed him since Denver.He has made leaps and bounds since his rookie year.Randel El.
I could go on all day.Hell I could go into basketball examples too.

The point is no one knows how good or bad Cassel is but he has showed he has skills and being his only experience in college and the NFL is in practice without first teams to come in to this stage and perform as well as he has is amazing to say the least.But you guys expect a man with no experience to come into this league and play like a Dan Marino right off the bat.
Name someone else that has his credentials and has ever even started a game less play that well.If he was crappy there is no way he would have pulled off that drive against the Jets at the end.That took skill.Plus no can argue that down field throws are the hardest for any qb even experienced and I would have actually been surprised if was real accurate on down field throws
