New York Jets owner, Woody Johnson, named US ambassador to the UK
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 ?

I think its pretty legit recognition about how good our RB's are now.. considering last year all everyone would talk about is how bad we sucked at running the ball

Haha, I love how they have Rhodes and Jordan! Either of those backs will have trouble getting 1000 yards in Oakland's offense.

I think the two pictures accurately describe the diffrences in styles between Leon and TJ. If you look at TJ his legs are aligned and it seems as if he's pulling out of cut, where as Leon's legs are bent and far apart like he's making a juke.

#5 is definitely a fair position IMO as Jones is a workhorse and has been great the past two seasons whilst Washington was extremely impressive this past season for a 4th round pick.

I would have Dunn and Norwood 6 though. Their play is overshadowed by the running skills of Vick but without those two the Falcons offense would go nowhere as Vick hasn't shown he can get it done through the air. I'd have 6, 7, 8 as Dunn and Norwood, Foster and Williams and then Henry and Bell in that order.
There is no doubting #1 though and I see that as being highly successful for years to come until one of them gets tired of having to share the load, which may be a longshot to happen.

I wouldnt count on # 1 being around for too long. Its all about money and cap space and the Saints simply cant afford to pay two RBs starting money each. Remember Deuce has that big contract and Bush has the huge rookie contract. (and it will only go up)

That picture is tight of Leon Washington. Atleast we are gettin some respect now. The other runningbacks tandems are really good, so we should be glad at being top 5 for right now. Maybe next year we will have the best runningback tandem in the NFL.

You see how in the Saints pic they have both Reggie and Duece out there at once. That what I want the Jets to have both Jones and Leon in the backfield at the same time so they don't know whether they're going to get Leon's speed or Jones' power. I've been hearing a few people say that our back field is kind of like a poor man's Saints backfield with Leon-Reggie and Jones-Duece

LOL ... I'll file a report. kobeskool asked me if I would go into the "chat room" with him. He intended to abuse me in ways that are illegal in 42 states.

BS16 actually makes a good point about a RB tandem. To me, SD is the best running team in the league. Both those running backs compliment each other very well. Reggie and Duece... I don't think they deserve #1 and I actually, now that I'm thinking about it, think we have a better "running" duo than they do. Reggie Bush doesn't impress me as a RB.

I've been hearing a few people say that our back field is kind of like a poor man's Saints backfield with Leon-Reggie and Jones-Duece


A poor man's Reggie-Duece combo? Now if THAT isn't insulting I don't know what is. First off Leon can actually run the ball 10 times better than Reggie. What does Reggie average, 3.6 a carry? Leon averages 4.3 ... that's a whole lot better than 3.6 I'll tell you that right now. Duece vs Jones? I'll take Jones 10 times out of 10. Duece is fragile and I prefer Jones running style and his monster arms. He breaks tackles and necks with those guns.

Seriously, have you been hearing that because that's gonna really piss me off? It's so retarded it's not even funny. Leon played better than Reggie.

Don't believe me? It's because you're believing the HYPE MACHINE known as Reggie Bush. OVER RATED!
See for yourself!
Reggie Bush: http://www.nfl.com/p...ayerpage/407605
Leon Washington: http://www.nfl.com/p...ayerpage/423207

Rushing Yards:
Bush | 565 | 3.6 Average | 6 TDs | 27 First Downs | 18 Longest Run
Leon | 650 | 4.3 Average | 4 TDs | 33 First Downs | 23 Longest Run

Receiving Yards:
Bush | 742 Yards | 88 Receptions | 8.4 Yards/Catch | 2 TDs | 74 Longest Catch
Leon | 270 Yards | 25 Receptions | 10.8 Yards/Catch | 0 TDs | 64 Longest Catch


Reggie Bush touched the ball 68 times more than Leon did. Look at the difference. Mostly those touches were in receptions. Can you imagine if we threw Leon 63 more screen passes? Get outta here! Poor man's huh? Why, because he was a 4th round pick and had ZERO hype? Maybe that's what it is. FRB! [ F*ck Reggie Bush ]

Leon isn't a poor mans Reggie, he's better and I honestly believe that which is why I was a little bit upset with the Thomas Jones acquisition. I'm pretty sure that Thomas Jones is better than Duece. DM is good, I'm not saying he sucks. But he's not better than TJ. I'm really pissed off that you're hearing that. Damn your ears biggrin.gif.

I agree the only reason Bush and Deuce are number one is because they are more popular then T Jones and Leon. The list should've been Michael Turner and LT at number one, at number 2 we should've been there. At number 3 i should've been Michael Bennett, Priest Holmes and LJ, Number 4 should be Deuce and Reggie Bush. The last one should be the Jones Drew and Fred Taylor.

I think that's because LT and Turner aren't really a tandem. When one player touches the ball 5 times a game and the other gets thirty its not really a tandem. All those listed are/will split the carries 50/50 or 60/40 i.e. TJ and Leon. Also why Johnson and Bennett aren't on there or even McGahee/Anderson

BINGO! they don't schematically run them. Turner gives L.T a breather here and there their not a tandem.
