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 : (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

Posted 18 November 2008 - 05:30 PM

1. Titans (10-0) (1): Kerry Collins leads impressive second-half comeback against Jags to keep Titans unbeaten in advance of Sunday’s home game against the Jets. Looks like Boland might have his work cut out trying to concentrate on the game. Btw, Boland live chat at 11 a.m. today. Be there.

2. Giants (9-1) (2): So much for the Ravens being able to contain the Giants’ running game, which churned out 207 yards and two TDs in a 30-10 walkover.

3. Panthers (8-2) (3): Panthers struggle a bit to get past Lions, but maintain one-game lead in NFC South.

4. Stillers (7-3) (4): So, did you have the Steelers to cover? :-)

5. Buccaneers (7-3) (5): Terrific effort against the Vikings at home, as ever-efficient Jeff Garcia leads the way to keep Bucs within striking distance of Panthers and stay in control of wild card race.

6. Jets (7-3) (12): Maybe Brett Favre was getting a little carried away when he put his win over the Patriots at or near the top of his list of big games, but his excitement was understandable. Jets take huge step in beating arch rivals on road in prime time.

7. Cardinals (7-3) (11): Long-suffering Cardinals fan Chicago Norm still has his doubts, but Cardinals are getting ready to sell playoff tix.

8. Colts (6-4) (10): That’s three wins in their last four games for a Colts team still hanging in despite injuries and early-season suckiness. (Can I use that word? … Well, I just did. That’s been a goal of mine for quite some time now.)

9. Patriots (6-4) (6): After losing to Jets at home, another big AFC East game for Pats: on the road against the 6-4 Dolphins.

10. Ravens (6-4) (7): Ray Lewis & Co. succumb to the elements: Earth, Wind and Fire.

11. Cowboys (6-4) (14): Tony Romo is back and all is right with the Cowboys. At least in a narrow victory at Washington.

12. Falcons (6-4) (8): Defense fails Falcons in second half against Broncos.

13. Redskins (6-4) (9): Back down to earth for Redskins? It wasn’t long ago they were 4-1.

14. Dolphins (6-4) (17): Dolphins really putting our no-such-thing-as-winning-ugly theory to the test. Chad Pennington barely ekes out home win against Raiders.

15. Broncos (6-4) (18): Jay Cutler finds a way in the fourth quarter in Hot ‘Lanta, as Broncos now enjoy two-game lead in AFC West.

16. Iggles (5-4-1) (13): So, games can really end in a tie? Donovan McNabb learns something new every day.

17. Packers (5-5) (19): Aaron Rodgers is solid, Ryan Grant is brilliant, and the defense is even better in a home rout of Da Bears.

18. Vikings (5-5) (16): After dispiriting loss in Tampa, Vikes now await word on possible suspensions of key defensive linemen.

19. Bears (5-5) (15): So much for Kyle Orton as savior.

20. Saints (5-5) (21): Saints do just enough to beat Chiefs on the road. Even so, this team looks dead in the water.

21. Jaguars (4-6) (23): Jags were close to upset of Titans. Just not close enough.

22. Browns (4-6) (25): Brady Quinn looks solid again in leading Browns to victory over Bills.

23. Bills (5-5) (20): Wide right from 47 yards out. Sound familiar, Bills’ fans?

24. Chargers (4-6) (22): No offense in the ‘Burgh.

25. 49ers (3-7) (27): Mike Singletary gets first win as head coach as Niners thump woeful Rams.

26. Texans (3-7) (24): Defense gets carved up by Peyton Manning.

27. Seahawks (2-8) (26): Matt Hasselbeck’s return doesn’t help Seahawks against surging Cardinals.

28. Bengals (1-8-1) (28): Bengals now 9-2-1 in last 12 at home against NFC teams. That’s about the only bright spot for this woebegone franchise. Woebegone – who the hell do I think I am, Garrison Keillor?

29. Chiefs (1-9) (29): Only question now is whether Carl Peterson and Herman Edwards make it to next season.

30. Raiders (2-8) (31): Jim Fassel would love to coach the Raiders. This question is: why?

31. Rams (2-8) (30): Highly unlikely Jim Haslett comes back next season.

32. Lions (0-10) (32): I’ve had enough with these guys. How many years has it been trying to come up with one-liners about the worst team in football? I’m done.
“We know we’re better than you, we don’t give a f*ck if you know it or not, we don’t give a sh*t if you give us your best game, we’re gonna give you our best game and we’re gonna beat the f*ck outta ya. How’s that?”

I still think they're better than the Stillers but this is pretty fair.

I really don't think the Bucs are that good, I think the Jets should be 5 actually, but I'll take 6 until we beat the Titans cool.gif

I'm not complaining at 6. I think all seems fair right now. The Bucs are a bit high but like I said. Everything seems pretty on par.

Agreed. This year, you could argue that there's no one team in the NFL who are leaps and bounds better than the rest. Obviously the Titans are undefeated, but they've not been destroying teams.

It's shaping up to be one interesting January because it's so close, I don't think the seeding will determine much.
