Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 08:18 PM) Regardless of our SB chances this year or next year. If Idzik keeps acting like a cheapskate and continues to let quality players go, we won't have to worry about winning much of anything this decade.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) He wants to build through the draft. Not blow the bank on FA. I get what your saying but there is a balance and right now we are not one or two pieces away.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:00 PM) It's not about being one or two pieces away. It's about keeping the good pieces you have and building upon that.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:04 PM) But there is no sense in trying to build through the draft if he's only going to end up letting the good players he picks up go in FA after a few years. All because he wants to do things on the cheap.

azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) The Revis deal sucks but $16 million was too much for a CB and once he was gone he was not coming back.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 01:00 PM) Eh. I think with our current cap situation we will be able to retain guys like Wilkerson and whomever we want to keep. We are in a good position right now.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 02:00 PM) landed revis abck. got DRC, nope we take patterson who got owned and always hurt. milner always hurt. 3rd round CB done for season. were gonna get passed on all day
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:46 PM) I'm not saying Idzik is perfect. I just like the direction we are heading. It's going to take some patience.
RetireChrebet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:27 PM) I like how our lack of secondary is the hot topic right now. The bigger issue is we still will not be able to throw the ball. We are not going to do much of anything regardless until we get a QB. Sorry for being so negative just my honest opinion.
RetireChrebet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:29 PM) With that said I think our running game with CJ and Powell will be top 10 or somewhere around there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:35 PM) i have faith that if geno messes up that vick can come in and do well. but i have 0 faith in our secondary right now which has been our strong point for the past 4 years or so
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:35 PM) I agree 115. but the one thing is Rex has done some good things in the past with shitty DBs and still had a solid D going back to his years in BAL
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:37 PM) Corey Ivy CB
36 Jim Leonhard SS/PR
43 Haruki Nakamura FS
25 Evan Oglesby CB
20 Ed Reed FS
22 Samari Rolle CB
39 Daren Stone FS
41 Frank Walker CB
31 Fabian Washington in 2008
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (20 August 2014 - 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) The JETS are #6 in the Forbes List for most franchise value
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) The Buffalo Jills are #31 and the Miami Dolphags are #16 respectively
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 07:00 PM) The JETS are worth $1.8 billion
jet-man Icon : (20 August 2014 - 10:03 PM) that's less than the clippers
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 01:07 PM) I'm very excited with the amount of preseason touchdowns the Jets have
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 03:21 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 07:22 PM) Calvin Pryor and Darrin Walls will start tomorrow
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 08:52 PM) The SIMPSONS MARATHON has been on for almost 12 hours...
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 08:57 PM) Sanchez looks so much more confident and better in Chip's offense than he did with us
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 09:50 PM) EVERY SIMPSONS EVER!!!!!
2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:10 AM) Sanchez is looking good for the eagles. Crazy how a good offense and the right system can make you look so much better. When you're put into a situatuon to succeed, magic happens. Happy for Sanchez, i think he needed a change just as much as the Jets did.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:02 AM) Preseason doesn't matter at all
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:10 AM) anyone have a stream for the preseaosn agme by chance?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:06 PM) Don't read to much into Mark in the preseason. He usually looked good in the preseason even in a Jets uniform.. Big difference from regular season where the 1st string defense is playing 100%.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) A lot of 1st stringers are just getting reps in and trying not to get injured. Its only the backups trying to keep or get a job playing hard every down. If preseason qb play meant anything then Matt Simms would be the starting qb of the Jets.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:00 AM) In Geno we trust
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 07:23 AM) preseason or not, our offense hasn't looked competent in a while like it does this year. our rushing attack should be very good. Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory could be a dynamic duo

McCain-Palin 2008!!!


Well I'm just glad to see the Republican party has gotten it's mindset out of the 1950s and leapped into 1984.

But seriously I think it was a very bold pick by McCain, not the right pick but one way or another America will make history on November 4th.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

Not totally sold on McCain, still leading towards Obama...but it is nice to see that he is a bit open minded as well. Either way it should be interesting in November.

FYI, Collin Powell and Condy Rice.... what were they, white folks in black face and drag?

Seriously though go look up the Civil Rights movement and look up what party many of the more active and daring politicians were.

I like the pick, but honestly I don't know much about her. I'll say this, she isn't ugly, unlike another female politician I know...

Seeing how this economy has broken apart at the seams in the past 200 days I'm definitely now voting for Obama. Sorry McCain, your economic policy was just too weak

Lets face facts, McCain needed to put Jesus on the ballot for him to have a shot. Nobody want's to elect John George Bush McCain to another 4 years in office. Especially someone like me who is tired of burying his friends after there nonsensical journey in to a country to fight a war that never should have been waged. McCain is using this poor lady as a political tool. As soon as the day comes when Hillary Clinton bashes this ex-beauty queen with words, then there will be no mistake as to who women are going to vote for. And its not going to be for the party who is trying to stop a woman's right to choose or the party who doesn't want to pay women an equal salary for an equal day's work. McCain basically just admitted today that he feels he has no shot at winning so he had to try and shake it up a bit and hope and pray that women would flock to his campaign. Too bad there was a quote today from one of the leading supporters of Hillary Clinton which said, "I know Hillary Clinton and Sarah? Palin is no Hillary Clinton". That's all you need to know on how this little maneuver is going to work.

Oh did I mention that Palin is under federal investigation in her own CORRUPT state? Well she is. Sounds like the same old Republican party to me.

I believe in the Puritan work ethic which is what this great country was founded on. Unfortunately, the libs don't believe in this and blame ALL of someone's failings on society/government instead of on the persons irresponsible choices. I can't see osama I mean obama doing ANY good for this country. Like a typical lib-demonrat he will tell you EVERYTHING you want to hear but has NO WAY of implementing those ideas w/out bankrupting the country.

I love it how Republicans throw Powell and Rice up in somebody's face everytime someone calls the Republican party the party of rich, old, white, protestant, straight (or closeted), men. Compare the faces we saw this week in Denver to the faces we'll see next week in Minneapolis, then tell me the Republicans are the party of diversity. FYI Powell and Rice were not and are not the President or Vice-President of the United States. Should all Jewish women love Bill Clinton just because he picked Madeleine Albright to be his Secretary of State?

Fine George W. Bush should get credit for making Powell and Rice the first black person and than Rice the first black woman to be SoS. But did he listen to Secretary Powell during the lead up to war with Iraq? Looks to me Bush just listened to Cheney, Tenet, and Rumsfeld and patted Powell on the head and ignored his advice NOT to go to war with Iraq. Proof positive the old guard of the GOP (like his daddy & James Baker) forced Bush to make Powell SoS. It wasn't until he needed Powell to sell the war to congress, the U.N., and to the American people that he paid Powell any attention. In the process destroying Powell's credibility when the reason for war went from Saddam's WMD to liberating the Iraqi people.

A President Obama or a Vice-President Palin would be much more historic than Powell and Rice being SoS. Voters don't choose a Secretary of State. Voters do choose Presidents and Vice-Presidents. That's why Obama and Palin are a bigger deal.

I know plenty about the Civil Rights Movement. I know that President Franklin Roosevelt (a Democrat) created the Fair Employment Practices Commission. I know that President Truman (a Democrat) desegragated the U.S. military. I know John & Robert Kennedy (Democrats) pulled strings to get Martin Luther King, Jr. released from jail. I know President Kennedy started pushing for the Civil Rights Act. I know President Johnson (a Democrat) signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 into law. Also he was the first to nominate a black man to the Surpreme Court. I know the Democratic controlled congress made MLK's birthday a national holiday. I know Walter Mondale (a Democrat) was first to select a woman to be his running mate. I know that two years ago the new Democratic controlled congress elected a woman Speaker of the House. I know that it is the Democratic Party that nominated two days ago a black man to be President of the United States. Not to mention all the work Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden have done to better the lives of minorities and women in this country over the years.

smile.gif You got a lot a nerve to lecture me on civil rights and then say you'd "do" Governor Palin; and how she looks better than other female politicians. So people can't say anything bad about minorities but sexist remarks towards the possible next Vice-President of the United States is okay? Well go "do" Vice-President Cheney, he's used to f***ing people over.

Isn't that the excuse u republicans made to try and keep Bill Clinton from becoming president? Yeah so what he got a blowjob from some fat cow, but that doesn't diminish the fact that our economy was booming and our deficit no longer existed when he left office. Let's face facts, John McCain CHEATED on his ex-wife with Cindy McCain. Any woman who can sleep with a married man, in my opinion, has no values or morals. Than the Oil Companies, I mean Republicans took office in 2000, now we have the largest deficit in our history. We have more people foreclosing on their home than we had during the GREAT DEPRESSION. Yeah, Obama may have an optimistic outlook on the future of our country but at least we know that he can't do worse than the Republicans have done in these past 8 years.

I know one way he's going to get the money to implement these ideas he has, by ending this f*cked up war in Iraq that's costing us 10 BILLION DOLLARS per month.

The problem with your argument about Lib-Dem's not believing in a Puritan work ethic is false. Here is a transcript of a few lines of Obama's speech last night:

CODE
Ours -- ours is a promise that says government cannot solve all our problems, but what it should do is that which we cannot do for ourselves: protect us from harm and provide every child a decent education; keep our water clean and our toys safe; invest in new schools, and new roads, and science, and technology.

Our government should work for us, not against us. It should help us, not hurt us. It should ensure opportunity not just for those with the most money and influence, but for every American who's willing to work.

That's the promise of America, the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation, the fundamental belief that I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper.


That definitely sounds like someone who is telling the American people that they NEED to work hard and that GOVERNMENT can't and will not bail them out of everything. But it also says that we need a Government who isn't asleep at the wheel. And that's the problem with John McCain, b/c we all know how OLD people like to nap.
“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?”

That's alright choon he's just trying to bait you/us with those Karl Rove talking points. That's why I don't respond to posts like that. I could rip McCain a new asshole and make fun of him, but I won't because then I'd be just as bad as them. Ever since the Clinton impeachment for both parties it's been all about tearing the otherside down to build my side up. Though the Republicans are better at it. That's why Obama has been able to energize young people and people who've ignored politics in the past. He doesn't feel the need to constantly rip and lie about McCain to build himself up. Even though I wish he would fight back a little more and not let them define him. This Timebandit dude just wants a message board fight and won't bring any depth or insight to the discussion. There are guys here who I may not agree with politically but can have an intelligent and civil discussion with and not attack each other and our candidates personally.

But back to the orginal topic I thought McCain would pick Lindsey Graham to be his running mate. But the Democrats need to stop with this Palin tried to get her brother-in-law fired stuff. That's going bring up the domestic violence issue and that might help her and McCain with women voters.

I have to agree that this looks like a knee-jerk reaction trying to pull those die hard Hillary supporters who say that they can't vote for Obama. The problem is that those voters won't jump ship if they think McCain is just using Palin as a stunt. Also, how many consevatives will to Bob Barr once they hear how Palin went after the oil companies and raised their taxes? As far as firing the person who wouldn't fire her ex-brother in law, the issue is how she tried to use her position to attack people, and then got rid of those who stood in her way, not whatever the brother in law did. Don't get me wrong, the brother in law was a a**hole, but when the official wouldn't fire him, she went over the line by getting rid of him. It makes her look like she is a bully and lets her emotion get in the way of her judgement (as both the official and her brother in law would be able to sue for wrongful termination).

ps word in MN is that Pawlenty's people were completely out of the loop, and are not happy. the gov cancelled every event and interview yesterday thinking they were in, and had a not too supportive interview at the fair today.

I didn't know that. He is suppose to be on Meet The Press in Sunday so I'll be watching his body language to see how he really feels. I did hear though that Mitt "Who Let The Dogs Out" Romney wasn't to happy with the pick either.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

Why would any Republican be happy? The only reason they would be is b/c they are desperate and they think this is their best chance to win the election and they're wrong. I have more foreign policy experience then she does.

I agree. I mean if he was going to pick a woman, Kay Bailey Hutchinson or Elizabeth Dole would have made more sense. Atleast McCain has spoken to them more than once. I would say Condi Rice too, but she needs to focus on being SoS and McCain doesn't need such a prominate fixture in the Bush administration running with him.

Palin might just end up being another Dan Quayle. I mean people talk about Obama possibly being assasinated but McCain has a better chance of having a stroke or getting cancer again and dying in office than Obama does. Even if McCain doesn't die he might become sick and incompasitated for a long time. Which will mean she will have to become Acting President. I wasn't going to watch the convention but I'll drop in on it now just to see how the party elders feel about this. McCain through a hail mary today that looks like will end up being an incomplete pass come Novemebr.

McCain picked Palin because like him she is a maverick who has bucked her party countless of times on numerous key issues. Also, she's pro-life & pro-2nd Amendment (being a lifetime member of the NRA). As a Gov. albeit for nearly 2yrs. & twice elected Mayor of a small town she has more executive experience than any candidate including McCain. McCain sees her as an outsider who is NOT from the Washington establishment & CANNOT be tied to the Bush administration, so there goes obamas claim of 4 more yrs of Bush. She also relates well to the working class, they can see themselves in her, she's the mother of 5 children, 1 who enlisted on Sept.11 2007 at the age of 18 in the Army & an infant who was born this past April & has downsyndrome. She really is living the American Dream, work hard, be sincere, stand by your principles & Always keep God in your life & good things will come your way. God Bless her & John McCain in their quest to lead this Great Country for the next 8yrs.

Exactly, this is why picking her makes no sense at all. With the stance on abortion and the 2nd amendment plus the fact that she has supported a constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriage and has also tried to get rid of the small amount of rights that our gay and lesbian friends have now, she will not get Clinton supporters to vote for them b/c of all of the things I just listed. It's such a stupid decision.

Add in the fact that 2 months ago Palin said this about Clinton, "She's an insufferable whiner". That will definitely get the Clinton followers once that gets out, hahaha.

Being a member of the NRA isn't exactly a plus to the people McCain is targeting with the Palin Gimmick(Liberal Hillary Supporters).

Are we honestly trying to call being a mayor of a town of 9,000 people and a governor for 2 years of ALASKA big time experience suitable for the White House?

Oh OK...since McCain says no I guess there goes the claim of 4 more years of Bush........I guess that means McCain is also confirming the fact he won't live through the 4 years of his possible presidency.

And here's the great failing of the republican party...failing to realize that the rest of the world isn't exactly the same as them. Not every human holds the same principles and values...and that doesn't make other people bad.

Just a word of advice...you never win people over by making fun of them...you just strengthen their convictions against you.

Looks like McCain used the ol' "pick a number between 1 and 10" method in choosing his running mate.
