MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 08:59 AM) It's going to cost us 6 because we are going to have to outbid a bunch of teams
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:52 AM) He is a good QB and I would love to have him. However IMO our 6 is not good value for us. Not to mention if he hates the idea of LA what is he going to think of NY? Contract situation would have to be worked out prior to trade as well. Extreme long shot to land Rivers. My money says we are more likely to land Brees.
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:53 AM) which is still a very long shot
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:46 AM) he may just hate ownership. LT's comments yesterday was interesting.
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) “I personally don’t think so,” Tomlinson said. “I really think this is a situation where Philip Rivers wants to move on. The reason why I think that and the reason why I feel like that is the Chargers have already approached Philip about doing another contract and he declined it. He doesn’t want anything to do with it; he didn’t even want to talk about another contract with the San Diego Chargers. That tells me that he’s thinking about moving on.”

“You never want to trade your franchise quarterback,” Tomlinson said, “that’s never the case. However, in this situation they might have no choice but to do so because I don’t know if Philip [Rivers] wants to be there anymore. I think he’s lost confidence in the organization. He’s seeing a lot of changes going on and the L.A. thing is valid; him not wanting to go to L.A., that is very valid, I can see that. So no, it doesn’t make sense to move on from Philip because he’s a franchise quarterback and he still has three to four very good years left.”
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) missed the LA line. nvm. guess that is a legit concern.
Mr_Jet Icon : (21 April 2015 - 03:57 PM) He doesn't want to play for a franchise based in Los Angeles, but he'd be okay with playing for one based in New York City?
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 04:28 PM) That's the point we have all been making.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:05 PM) Jets vs colts Monday night week2
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:09 PM) Jets open at home against the browns
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6

That's a falsity in my opinion. I have been to a New Orleans Saints game...and the Super Dome is right in downtown New Orleans. They don't have any kind of congestion or traffic problem whatsoever...and they don't even have a public transportation system outside of buses...while New York has one of the best in the country. Maybe if suburban people weren't so afriad of public transpotation this wouldn't be a problem.

Also...tailgating...what is the obsession? What is the obsession with sitting in a concrete parking lot? When I went to the Saints game we "tailgated" in the French Quarter...now that was fun. Or how about a park? How great would it be to eat some hot dogs, drink some beers, and throw around a football on grass with trees...as opposed to concrete?

So where would you rather spend your time before the game?


In the French Quarter...in the city...



Or perahps in a park...on the green...



Or in the parking lot...on the concrete...




You can't even compare New Orleans and New York in population and traffic density. New Orleans is spread out and the Superdome is in a lot unoccupied by anything else. In New York you gonna have to take the traffic of Knick/Ranger games and multiply that by at least four. Have you ever been around MSG 20 mins before tip-off? Its plain mayhem. Plus think of the parking. If you have to pay $40 for a spot 5 blocks away from MSG think of the prices of parking for an even with 4x or more people.

Jersey is much more economical and makes more sense to stay there then to go under with public levies for a billion dollar stadium

"The Super Dome is in a lot unoccupied by anything else"...

Well...what is supposed to happen...are supposed to have K Mart and a Home Depot attached to the West Side Stadium?

The solution to your parking problem is parking garages. The SuperDome "shares its lot" with a parking garage. That handles most of the parking problem. And no you can't compare New Orleans and New York traffic wise...but I think that issue is drastically over thought. Does anyone really ever complain about traffic outside of MSG? I don't ever hear it...and yes I have been to a game...I don't think it's that bad at all.

And the only answer I'll provide to you saying Jersey is more economical is a quote, I can't remember the name of the man who originated the quote, "It is never to expensive to do the right thing." Now the 'right thing' is an opinionative statement, but you don't seem to disagree it would be nicer to go to a game in the city. You just think it would be too expensive and a traffic nightmare. I don't think it will...

Lot:
6. a distinct portion or piece of land: a building lot.
7. a piece of land forming a part of a district

No it doesn't have to have a K-Mart or some store liek that. You fail to see my point. You compared the Superdomw to a West Side Stadium arguing that they were both Urban Stadiums. The argument that I made is that the surrounding terrain of the proposed West Side stadium differs from that of the Superdome drastically. The Superdome has an expensive "lot" around it and arround that lot there really isnt that much either. Now refer to a stadium on the west side. Zero room for parking. Lets say theres an estimated 80,000 person capacity, at the very least. Are you gonna build a 30 story parking garage?

LETS GO JERSEY JETS!!!


Anyone who calls Jersey a dump is ignorant. If u dont live here u cant say shit cus Jersey isnt a dump, or anywhere close to it.

New Jersey Rules and I am tired of everytime there is an event in the Meadowlands they say they are in New York on tv. ITS not new york its NEW JERSEY. they should get it right. Jersey rules and i wouldnt have one problem wit it. If u are even considering not being a Jets fan anymore cus it has Jersey infron of there name not only are u not a true fan but that makes no logical sence. Its childish to not like them cus of a simple name change to their true location.

Well...calling Jersey a dump may be a little harsh...and a little facetious as you say. But I just don't see the appeal in the place...much as I don't see the appeal in Long Isalnd either...it's New York City that I love...and that only really extends to Manhattan and Brooklyn...

It may seem trivial...but if they do change the name I'm not sure I could be a fan. I'm still clinging onto some hope of them having a home in New York. How can one of the most influential cities in the world not have a team? It's kind of ridiculous...


Oh yeah, and there are no trashy, dumpy areas in Manhattan or Brooklyn, right?

Couldn't find a single homeless person or crack whore anywhere in the city, right?

The Jets haven't played in NY in over 20 years, I doubt they will change their name now, they still have NY on their helmet, and I don't think they have any plans of a uniform change any time soon.

As long as they don't pack up and move to L.A. and become the L.A. Jets or something like that I am a fan for life, and Woody is a local guy so I doubt he will be taking the team anywhere, but whether they play in NJ or NY, both places are close enough to accomidate the fans, but NY had their chance to win them back and blew it over stupid political bull sh!t.

It sounds like Hurricane is working in the marketing department for MSG haha.

But anyway, they both have their advantages, not everybody likes the city... No doubt MSG is nicer than continental/giants stadium though.

Before I start...I'm not trying to sound like dick...there just isn't any way to type this without sounding like that...but in my head I'm trying to just have a reasonable debate about this...

Now, I'm not sure about this because I can't remember exactly what the plan around the whole railyards site was, but why can't we build garages underground? If it is as I remembered we're building over railyards, so if that is the case, ignore my last sentence. OK yeah I just found a picture of the site...doesn't look like we can build underneath the stadium...haha...

Also...no...I don't see your point about the Superdome having an expensive lot around it. What exactly do you mean? Surrounding the Superdome are office buildings and hotels. It is actually possible it is a denser site than the proposed West Side Site...



That's actually a fairly low area of Manhattan...and definitely in need of some big economic boost such as a stadium. By the way, where is the "great" mixed-use area that would provide cheap housing for tons of people if the stadium wasn't built? What a dick...the Dolan's are going straight to hell for the sins against mankind...

At any rate...back on topic...I think a parking garage could be built in the adjacent lots that could be surrounded by retail and office. Consider the building as a cell...where the parking garage is the nucleus...and the shops, restaurants, and offices are the skin around the garage decks. That leaves no unsightly parking garages and only adds to the experience of going to the stadium as you could have great bars and restaurants directly adjacent to the stadium.

On the other side of the stadium you could place a park...where people could gather and "tailgate" in a nice area.


It's just my thoughts...not everyone will agree...but no one will ever agree with everything anyone says...

See, that made no sense on two parts. One, the jets would lose more NY fans they goin in NJ fans if they gain any, plsu they lose the biggest TV market in the U.S. Second, are you suggesting by just playing in New Jersey the Devils are playing better? Have you been to a Devils hockey game? There is more blue there than red and anytime the few Devils fans start to get a chant going the Rangers fans drown it out. So how could changing the name benefit the team at all? Answer, it doesn't. Also, heres some straight up facts. The Rangers where 8th in total attendance for the 2005-2006 season, the Devils were 26th out of 30. Even with winning the divison the Devils have horrible attendance. NJ teams alone can hardly survive, they need NY. And cutting the Jets of all it's NY teams would hurt it BAD, because lets face it, the Jets aren't exactly the most winning frachise. The fact is the Jets want to be a NY team, thats why they pushed for a stadium in NY and declined to change their name to Jersey not too long ago.

Dude, I was just stateing that the Devils are a better team....... But they hardly have anyone there because Hockey is not a popular sport at all in NJ. Detriot and Toranto Hockey is huge. I was saying that more NJ people will become Jets fans if they changed their name to NJ, because some NJ people only like NJ teams....

The stadium is in NJ, the name will probaly stay with NY. But it makes more sense to have the stadium in NJ, where it is, because there is more room to have it. Its easier to get into it, and theres alot more room to park. They wont change the name to NJ, because its too profitable to be named NY.

We should just buy New Jersey and make it the sixth borough. What good does it really have outside of it's connection to New York as an illegitimate step child? I hated the fact that the state fought for relevance and stripped the Lady Liberty from us. Started drawing water lines.. who does that? I hate moves of desperation.

I'm in agreeance with Hurricane though.. they become the Jersey Jets, I no longer support them as I do now. If I'm going to support an out of state team, I might as well be a bandwagon hopper and support one that wins super bowls or something.. it'll cause for much less heart break.

You act like NJ and NY are 2 different countries.. We are all apart of the same country here....

Only what could have been. sad.gif

They would tear me apart if they changed the name to Jersey Jets. I would really have a hard time with this. Jersey is already a ses pool. I know it's hard for them to put it in Manhattan with all trouble with parking and transportation but I'm sure they could find a way. Everytime I think about this I get bummed out.

Leave the Giants in Jersey and move the Jets home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! fvck I can't stand this !

I support the New York Jets because they are from New York, which is where I have some family. It would be hard for me to root for the New Jersey Jets simply because I'd feel no attachment to the place even though right now they do play there.

At the end of the day if it wasn't for NY politicians then wouldn't the West Side Stadium already be being constructed. The traffic problem wouldn't be too much of an issue as people who live in NY or just outside such as on Long Island could get the short train down and then ride the Subway to the game. It would mean a few thousand would stop having to drive to the game. Those in Jersey could get the train from Newark into Penn and then ride the subway too. I attended a Rangers-Islanders game at the Garden and it was basically packed and the Subway back wasn't that congested. In London any given week you could have five different soccer games going on and although the underground network is pretty packed it's not that bad and parking at the stadium isn't a problem because few do it and there are plenty of garages in the area of most soccer grounds.

Tailgating in the parks would IMO be quite fun too and would be safer as well for kids as there would be no cars to dodge in the parking lots. Heck, they could even hire out boats on the water for fans to have a little pre-game party. Call it floating tailgate parties.

Yeah...a European would understand what I mean...because they aren't afraid of public transportation over there. They aren't afraid of urban places....as far as I've noticed. We're so scared of traffic and whatnot in America...but everything we do creates more traffic. You have to drive a car to do anything in America...outside of watching TV...taking a piss...and microwaving crap food that is shortening our life span...what can we do without cars? We can't go to school...we can't shop...we can't eat out...we can't go to a sporting event...we can't see a play...we can't even go for a walk...without driving. And that last one I find incredibely funny...that people actually are willing to drive an hour just so they can get to a place that is pleasant to walk around...talk about irony.

On a side note...the only reason we don't have a West Side Stadium in construction at the moment...is because of Dolan...the owner of Cablevision and Madison Square Garden. He at first supported the Jets Stadium...but when he thought the WSS would take away money from his MSG he bashed it. He pulled out all the stops...he owned the cable company so he slandered the WSS all over the TV commercials. And even worse...he wouldn't allow the Jets to air any commercials of their own that were pro-WSS. That's called illegal in America!

It's a shame...a true shame. The West Side Stadium would have revitilized a deteriorating area of Manhattan...it would have given New York a good shot at hosting the Olympics...New York was already guranteed a Super Bowl if the stadium was built...the NCAA was planning to create a College Football Bowl Game that probably would have been the National Championship Game and a hold Final Four Basketball Games there...New Yorkers are missing out on a lot because of one man's greed!

So let's review...no West Side Stadium equals...

...No Olympics...

...No Revitilization of a Deteriorating Area of Manhattan...

...No College Football BCS Bowl Game...

...No NCAA Final Four Games...

...No Super Bowl...

...No Appearance of Numerous Conference and Exhibitions which were planned to be held under the WSS's retractable roof...

...Another lifetime of being second rate to the Giants...

...And No NFL Team in the Countries Biggest Market!!!

We should just buy New Jersey and make it the sixth borough. What good does it really have outside of it's connection to New York as an illegitimate step child? I hated the fact that the state fought for relevance and stripped the Lady Liberty from us. Started drawing water lines.. who does that? I hate moves of desperation.

I'm in agreeance with Hurricane though.. they become the Jersey Jets, I no longer support them as I do now. If I'm going to support an out of state team, I might as well be a bandwagon hopper and support one that wins super bowls or something.. it'll cause for much less heart break.

very ignorant

To belittle an entire state saying that it is worthless is very ignorant.

Once again...consider it done...

I'm not really attacking Jersey...it's just the prime example...what does Jersey have to offer? And don't say beaches because a lot of places have beaches...and it isn't like the Jersey Shore crystal clear water either...

I'm gonna do a quick comparison between what New York City offers you...and what a place like New Jersey offers you...pick which one you'd rather go visit...

Dining

Jersey



NYC



Shopping

Jersey



NYC



Parks

Jersey


I admittedly couldn't find much on parks in New Jersey...other than going into the mountains...which are beautiful...but I'm talking about a park...not a mountain.

NYC



Homes

Jersey



NYC




Museums

Jersey

Drawing a blank here...

NYC





And just for fun...the first image that shows up on a Google Image Search...

New Jersey



New York City



That last one was pretty telling...again this isn't solely an attack on Jersey...you can plug in most places for Jersey and get the same thing. I'm just an advocate of city life...and that doesn't mean it has to be on a NYC scale...smaller towns work fine too.

How many times did you pick the Jersey option? We can go on forever comparing the two...bars...nightclubs...theatre's. But really...there is no comparison...nothing comes close...

Take a look at places like Ridgefield Park, or Old Bridge, where I lived before I moved. We lived on 1 1/4 acres of land with trees and whatnot. I'd much rather live there than an apartment in Greenwich Village. Most of NE New Jersey is a suburb of NYC. So you can't really compare the two. Of course NYC is gonna have more nightlife and whatnot, thats because people out of the city travel to the city for entertainment. THATS HOW IT IS EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD.
