Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) depressing but true
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) Fitzpatrick can play at a average level, the Jets have had QB play on the below average level
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) Fitzpatrick not being mentioned as a NFL worst starter is a upgrade for this team
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:14 PM) He could throw for 25 TDs if he starts every game
Chaos Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:18 PM) 2009 with a Favre and Rex pairing could have been special
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 August 2015 - 09:20 PM) ok so who thinks geno has played his last game of his JETS career?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 August 2015 - 09:23 PM) I honestly think his JETS career is knocked out like that right hand by IK
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 August 2015 - 08:50 PM) why the hell can't the JETS ever get it right
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 August 2015 - 08:50 PM) are we doomed for all eternity?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 August 2015 - 01:56 PM) kerly might be losing his job to a younger WR
GreenDude Icon : (18 August 2015 - 06:34 PM) We just signed Matt Flynn
santana Icon : (18 August 2015 - 07:02 PM) FLYNNNNSANITYYY
santana Icon : (18 August 2015 - 07:02 PM) hype hype hype
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Which receiver is Kerley losing his job to?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Kerley is still gonna be our slot receiver. Devin Smith is a outside WR, deep threat and hes gonna be out for a bit.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:32 PM) though Brandon Marshall likes playing in the slot at times and does work there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 01:27 PM) he's apparently battling (and losing to) enuiwa
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 01:28 PM) enunwa^
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:26 PM) I haven't heard about that
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:28 PM) I read how kerley has been uncover able one on one

Smedsthejet Icon : (19 August 2015 - 03:03 PM) Any news on how Shaq Evans is performing?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:12 AM) http://nypost.com/20...ricks-of-trade/
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:12 AM) sounds like the jets think kerly is too small for what they want
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:13 AM) if enunwa is our 3rd WR that gives us 3 starting Wrs over 6-2. compared to the 5'7 kerly.
RetireChrebet Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:32 PM) Hopefully enunwa pans out. The jets need to start catching talent in he late rounds like most successful teams do.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (21 August 2015 - 03:05 PM) MT did for us
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 06:49 PM) Well it's only pre season but I don't enjoy watching them walk right over our defense
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) Looks like nothing has changed from the last 5 years. Our offense is still trash
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Damn petty has a rocket arm!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:54 PM) Kellen Davis sucks
Mr_Jet Icon : (22 August 2015 - 12:40 PM) Bryce Petty looked really good last night.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 04:56 PM) He took some big steps from week one. There is no question. If he continues to progress like that we may be chanting for him sooner than expected. I love his arm.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 06:56 PM) Sanchez looks like Drew Bree's today
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 August 2015 - 01:24 PM) WOOOOOOOO Ric Flair!
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) The guy in the fantasy league who said we're scared of Santana... is clearly santana.
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) just sayin
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) im only half serious
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 09:30 AM) Also i suspect that santana
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 09:30 AM) might be santana
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 01:35 PM) Tough draw for Liverpool
Jetsman05 Icon : (27 August 2015 - 02:21 PM) Suarez second best in Europe... pretty good

By SHALISE MANZA YOUNG
Journal Sports Writer

The NFL Draft is nearly two weeks in the past, but questions remain as to the New England Patriots' plans and the futures of the players they brought into the fold.
And some who may yet enter the fold.
Among the Patriots' 12 draft picks, there was but one linebacker Tyrone McKenzie, who projected to inside linebacker in the team's 3-4 defense which has kept alive the belief that it's just a matter of when, not if, Jason Taylor will be signed by New England.
At the moment, Taylor is in southern Florida, presumably spending time with his family, which is why he walked away from the $8 million the Washington Redskins were set to pay him for the coming season. The Skins wanted Taylor to work out at the team's facility during the offseason, but Taylor preferred to remain at home, and he was released by Washington.
From the moment he hit the free-agent market, New England has been targeted as a likely destination for the six-time Pro Bowler. Pats' owner Robert Kraft said Taylor can become a Patriot if that's what he wants, and it's hard to believe Bill Belichick would put up much of a fight given his history of fairly gushing over the former Dolphins' star.
But the possibility of Taylor returning to Miami, where he spent the first 11 years of his career before being traded to the Redskins before the 2008 season, has been floated as well.
That doesn't seem as likely, however: Dolphins' GM Jeff Ireland told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel last month that re-signing the 34-year old Taylor could hamper the development of the team's younger defensive players, and it's unknown whether the rift between Taylor and Dolphins personnel honcho Bill Parcells has been mended enough to pave the way for the player's return.
One of the players whose progress could be stunted is Cameron Wake. Miami signed the Canadian Football League standout pass-rusher earlier this year.
Last week at Dolphins' mini-camp, head coach Tony Sparano was quoted as saying, "We're going to watch Cameron this week and see what Cameron does. I know the Jason thing is out there."
The Boston Globe reported last week that the Patriots have reached out to Taylor again, citing an NFL source, upping their efforts to get the league's defensive player of the year in 2006 to Foxboro.
Taylor is expected to make a decision by the end of this month.
There are some who believe the Pats and Taylor already have a handshake agreement in place. With the respect it appears Belichick has for Taylor, it's not too far-fetched to think that he'll be given a playbook, told to study up, and stay in shape until training camp begins at the end of July. That would give Taylor maximum time with his family.
Belichick has made similar concessions for certain veterans in the past: Vinny Testaverde was allowed to sit out most of training camp a few years ago, and Roman Phifer had permission to fly home to his family in California after Sunday games and return to the facility on Wednesday.
The Julius Peppers scenario seems dead at this point Belichick has made it clear that he would rather deal with the Carolina Panthers on a potential sign-and-trade than Peppers' agent. But for that to happen, Peppers would have to sign his franchise tender, and he hasn't done that.
So Taylor is the other option remaining, and he's not a bad one at that. Lest anyone forget, he won the defensive POY award as an outside linebacker in Nick Saban's 3-4 defense, which is a close sibling of Belichick's system. That year, he had 13 sacks, 10 forced fumbles and two interceptions
