MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) OK so Bill O brien and Sean Payton might get fired according to Fox this morning
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) I would do anything to get one of them as OC
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) texans coach? i doubt he gets fired
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) but he would be ideal if the jets were to flush bowles out

azjetfan Icon : (05 January 2017 - 09:54 PM) Sean Payton will get another HC gig. Obrien would be good.
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:18 PM) Howard from Alabama seems legit. #88 TE
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:20 PM) Williams the WR from Clemson looks like they are out to get him. He has taken some huge hits
vjdbbq Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:12 AM) We'll take Williams in the first round .
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 10:48 AM) I'd love Howard in the 2nd round if he's still there. I like Williams a lot as well, but I just don't see WR being big enough of a need, and there should be better talent on the board at 6
Jetsfan115 Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:21 PM) Raiders OC Musgrave not expected to return to OAK. what do you think about getting him? he did wonders with the oakland offense this year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:39 PM) Definitely an appealing choice given with his history of progressing Carr. We need someone with a track record of grooming young QBs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (12 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) I want Watson now! after what he did Monday night I'm sold on him at QB. He moved the ball all night on Alabama and after hurts scored that TD he just told his team "Lets end this"
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:31 PM) An Ohio prosecutor says he wants to know what punishment Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones faces from the NFL before deciding how to proceed over Jones' latest arrest, Dan Sewell of the Associated Press reports..

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WKRC-TV he's asking "what is the normal" for a player with multiple offenses and who's been suspended before.

An NFL spokesman said on Thursday that Jones' case is "under review" and declined to comment further.

Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. Authorities say he was so combative he had to be placed in a restraint chair.

Jones says he anticipates the charges will be dismissed.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:32 PM) we wont get watson. he's going 1st overall to the browns
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:06 PM) Is Watson a product of Clemson's staff and supporting cast? Taj Boyd also put up some decent numbers if I remember correctly but he couldn't even make a scout team in the NFL.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) From what I have read (although limited) he is not the highest ranked QB in the draft.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) "No quarterback in this draft -- not Mitch Trubisky, not Watson, not DeShone Kizer -- is considered a sure thing. The folks at Scouts Inc. rank Trubisky, Watson and Kizer as the 21st, 38th and 46th prospects on their big board, respectively." ESPN
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:12 PM) If we can get a decent return for Richardson we may be able to make a move into the mid teens to early 20s if the Brass really likes Watson.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:13 PM) Personally I don't think the jets have a clue on who they will take. We still have to hit FA and manage our roster
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 11:46 PM) Jets to interview Broncos assistant Studesville for OC
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:28 PM) Why? seems like a weird choice
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:29 PM) Leonard Williams replacing Khalil Mack in Pro Bowl
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm not buying Watson, even after that championship game. Dude threw too many picks in his day
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm really curious to see what we get for Richardson, but I have a bad feeling his value is at an all time low between his crap season and bad attitude
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 12:16 AM) I agree. He is a first round talent but a fourth round headache. We will be lucky to get a 2nd
Chadforpresi... Icon : (14 January 2017 - 08:41 AM) Yeah precisely. 2nd rounder would be a huge stretch. 3rd or 4th is more likely
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:51 PM) Seems like a slightly steep price but overall cool with it, he's turned into a good player and is still young. Just needs to stay healthy.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 January 2017 - 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) :saythat:
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:13 AM) :trink39:
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 January 2017 - 01:32 PM) 4 years 29 mil 15 mil guarenteed. so 7.25mil a year for winters. a nice bargain. he took a hometown discount. seems like a good guy. well done winters and mac
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 January 2017 - 04:33 PM) Jets hire Dennard Wilson as defensive backs coach
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 January 2017 - 04:01 PM) Trump to name Jets' owner Woody Johnson U.K. ambassador
vjdbbq Icon : (19 January 2017 - 06:04 PM) Maybe Woody will take the Jets with him to London . PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Posted 28 November 2008 - 06:22 PM

“You’re only as good as your last game,” Jets safety Abram Elam said Wednesday.

After racking up 10 tackles and forcing a takeaway in the Jets’ 34-13 thrashing of the Titans on Sunday, “Big Play Abe” is awfully good at the moment. He’s started the past four games and has become a defensive dynamo.

There was the 92-yard interception return for a touchdown at Buffalo, his first career strip-sack against the Rams, which resulted in a Calvin Pace score, then a strip of Titans rookie runner Chris Johnson, which led to a Brett Favre scoring pass.

“I’m just trying to take advantage of my opportunities,” said the soft-spoken Elam. “I’m going out, practicing hard and playing hard. Preparation is key.”

Elam, whose brother, Donald, was murdered last May and has lost three siblings to gunfire since 1987, was grateful on this Thanksgiving. On Thursday, he got the chance to spend some quality time with his 7-year-old son, Kaiir. They shared a meal in Paterson, N.J., at the house of Lorenzo Crawford, a friend of Elam’s from their playing days at Notre Dame.

“I’m thankful for a lot. I’ve been blessed to have family and great people surrounding me. God has definitely been ahead in my life because without him I don’t think I would be where I am today,” he said. “I wake up every day and thank the Lord for giving me another day as an opportunity to go out and do something I love.”

When the Jets met as a team Wednesday morning, head coach Eric Mangini named Elam the defensive player of the week for his outstanding performance against Tennessee.

“I was happy for him, I really was," said fellow safety Kerry Rhodes. "He’s played well these last couple of weeks and he’s got overshadowed. This week Coach acknowledged him and it was a good thing for us and it was a good thing for a guy who’s been through a lot.”

After starting the season in a reserve role, Elam has stepped up after being called into duty following Eric Smith’s concussion. The 6’0”, 207-pounder, a 27-year-old in his third pro season, has responded with the best playing stretch of his career.

“He’s playing great,” said lockdown corner Darrelle Revis. “You see him every week making plays — fumbles, interceptions for returns. It’s good to have a guy like that who’s a playmaker.”

The Jets don’t have to worry about success going to Elam’s head. He is steady and realizes that things can change in a hurry.

“In the NFL, it only takes one play,” he said. “You have to be on point each and every down because you’re playing against great players. They’re scheming to take advantage of any mishap you have.”

The Sunday spotlight will be on Elam and the Jets’ secondary. Even though the Denver Broncos don’t have a record that matches the Titans, they pass for 273 yards per outing and are more dangerous through the air. Whereas Elam, best known for his ability in the box, knew the Jets’ last game could have been played in a telephone booth, this weekend’s matchup is far different.

“Denver is a very explosive offense. They’re third in the league in passing yardage. They have a great young quarterback in [Jay] Cutler, who has a very strong arm, Brandon Marshall is near the top of the league in receptions, so it’s a great challenge,” he said. “Being a defensive back, this is one you want to look forward to because you want to play against the best and you want to continue to prove yourself week in and week out.”

For the season, Elam has totaled 31 tackles (including three for losses), two forced fumbles, three passes defensed and the memorable interception and sack, plus eight special teams tackles. The role player’s contributions haven’t gone unnoticed.

“He works the same way since the day he arrived here,” Mangini said of Elam. “When he gets these opportunities, he's taken advantage of them and that is what you really look for.”
