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 : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 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 : (23 April 2015 - 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 : (23 April 2015 - 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 : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 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
MikeGangGree... Icon : (24 April 2015 - 09:40 PM) TEH RANGERS
santana Icon : (24 April 2015 - 11:32 PM) TEH WIZ
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:57 AM) Teh Suarez
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) Vic Beasley is all speed. No moves, no power. Straight up the field. Could have some big games, then nothing in the next
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) If we don't get Mariota, we should be looking at Schreff or trading down, IMO.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) A lot of good edge rushers in this draft... I wouldn't want to take Dupree that high.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 AM) Until next time fellas!
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:19 PM) Helloooooooooo
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:19 PM) Bueller
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:33 PM) Manish says the Jets should trade down and draft Andrus Peat round 1
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:39 PM) Even an idiot can say something that's right every now and then

Played hardball with Direct-TV... Told them I was canceling unless they gave me an offer I couldn't refuse. 4 phone calls later and a ton of negotiating, I got a free HD DVR, new dish, Free Super Fan and $10 off my bill per month for a year. Watching Football in style this season!

I canceled them about 2.5 years ago because they were trying to charge me $300 to LEASE their HD DVR box. I threatened to leave, they didn't care. So I went to Time Warner who was giving HD DVR's for free.

They had some nerve too. I had three or four different calls and I discussed, at length, what day I should terminate service as to avoid incurring any fees. A month later, I get a bill for $129 for voiding my contract. This was something I spoke about with different reps to make sure WOULDN'T happen, and they tried charging me anyway.

I didn't pay them shit. Cutting off my nose to spite my face as they've reported that to collection agencies. But as far as they're concerned, I'm dead.

sure, I miss the NFL Network.. a lot. But fuck weak signals on rainy days.

Ron,

I thought for a moment you got something better than me! The department you spoke to was ďThe Retention Department, just say you want to cancel and they can make things happen LOL! Anyway, not to stomp on anyone shoes here but I have never paid for SuperFan (Always Free), as for the $10.00 a month for a year, I have that and an extra $10 for having AT&T Bundle = Total $20.00 Off. The HD/DVR, I get a free one every yearÖ just tell them to renew your contract and youíll get a new one for free. Of course itís not yours but Iíll take a leased receiver anyday. If you ever want to upgrade to HD, just tell them that your interested and youíll get the Dish at no cost. Honestly, thereís nothing like SuperFan/Supercast, and now with the new DirecTV Supercast for mobile and watching every Jets game live on my iPhone I wonít ever miss a beat!

Simple, when the recording asks you why you called, say retention department and reason - cancellation. When you get them on the phone keep working them until you get the best offer you can get. What would you like to get from them?
What don't you have now?

I switched from Direct tv to dish network. I am very happy. I was paying more and getting less with Direct. I had the basic package with no HD now I have twice as many channels and HD and pay less than $70 per month. With Direct if it rained or any weather moved in, the Direct would freeze. I have had zero picture problems with Dish. I do miss the NFL package but I will never go back. The customer service I recieved with Direct was horrid. I laugh everytime i see there commercials.

When I cancelled they said I owed them money as well. They were wrong. I had to call a lawyer. As soon as that happenned they figured it all out. I then cancelled and they keep mailing me info to come back but there is no way in hell I will ever go through that again. See ya later Direct TV AKA scam artists.

OK now that I have myself all pissed of again about this again, I would like to say I only hate 1 thing in life and its direct TV. I would rather see the Patriots win 5 more SBs than ever have to deal with this POS company again. I am going to start a "I HATE DIRECT TV WEBSITE"!! Ok rant off

Other than Nfl package they are no better than dish. There reception sucks. Every time a storm comes in the system shuts down. there HD is not as clear as Dish. They are way more money and for what? I am not calling you out here or being a jerk, I just dont see it. Dish has way more Satelites up there so My signal does not have to travel as far. I may be a little one sided here but I really had that bad of an experience with Direct TV.

i believe you.. i know others who complain about losing signal during storms. i am one of the lucky ones who rarely gets my signal distorted... having the dish on the roof with a clear view and calibrated properly im sure helps. i went from directv to dish back to directv. dish network is a bit cheaper but it evens out in price because the channels i enjoy are in their higher packages. the compression on dish network is crapola compared to directv. that was another reason i came back and plan on staying with directv.

honestly i've never had any HD provider other then DirecTV, but i love my DirecTV. before this i had cablevision back when i lived on long island lol. i've had DirecTV for over 8 years and i never have issues. i've never lost signal or anything, but living in cali the last 6 years there really aren't any storms so i don't know about bad storm areas. just saying i love it. and for 2.50 a month i get CBS east and all my jet games. can't beat that.

Sorry guys I beg to differ, I live in Miami (Where it pours) and I never have signal problems. It all depends if you live around tall buildings but other than that itís crystal clear. I will live and die with DirecTV unless something dramatically happens! I split the bill with my mom who lives in another location, she has her own dish and receiver thatís under my account and wala she has a dish. We have the premium package w/everything and only pay around $70 each for Everything (Sports Package, HD, DVR & Movie Channels). Since I live in Miami, I have no choice to get the Sunday Ticket, but I split the cost with my brother and it comes out much cheaper! When thereís a will thereís a way, just gotta know the tricks to save money! LOL
