RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25

ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 05:56 AM) Az bitches!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.
JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:47 AM) hahahaha, it isnt European Football!
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.
JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!

ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany

Chrebet Calls It A Career He ends his career with 580 receptions

I understand where BlueHen was coming from referencing Chrebet's skin color. It was one of the things that opened him up for criticism initially, even before his size. It's not racist to be observant - and there's no denying that the WR position is black-dominated.

But when bluehen said:

no one thought would be in the NFL yet manages to have a long successful career.


It was in defiance of those odds that earns him the ultimate honor as a Jet. Greatness isn't defined solely by statistics. Having Chrebet be a player who stood loyal to one organization, fought for yards, fought for the team and was the reason we could keep drives alive and win games qualifies him as great in my eyes.

For you to be a Jet fan, and not want to see an honor given to an underrated athlete who dedicated his adult football career to an organization that's never gotten fair treatment in the media is ridiculous. He could've gone the Coles route in the past and demanded insane amounts of money and tested free agent markets, and he didn't. He made plays for the team when other players couldn't. He's one of the few great Jets in our history.. even greater than Curtis Martin, in my opinion.

Point taken, I definately understand and expected most Jet fans to want Wayne's number retired. I'm not trying to take anything away from Chrebet he was a good player and a real good Jet, who did defy the odds. My point is that I think guys need to have those elite numbers or championships (like Martin or Namath) plus the emotional ties to an organization and its fan base to have their number retired. I'm not trying to change anyone's mind I was just giving my opinion and got drawn into an arguement. But hey I won't complain if the Jets do decide to retire Chrebet's number, I can't argue that he has been one of the faces of the Jets for over 10 years, so if they decide that he has earned it then that's fine.

So why bother to start a fight of words for man??? i understand some of what your saying but you pick the wrong place to doing it its like Tony G's son dieing and me telling him to return to the team next week or askin him would you do that??? proably a bad example but man try to view your point of views in a diffent place not this nice topic and i proably would of took your side



and Jetsohfive who ever made you a Mod they should think about a Brand new one because your doing a bad job with keepin the tempo on this site the way it supose to be every topic theres allways a war of words with you or someone on this site. I'm not a saint because me and Reg allways fight and we never liked each other since the day he pick to side joke me to gain friends on the site but its my opinon and its my thought of the guy..... Jetsohfive i have a suggusting and thats take a break for a little while from being a mod and look after Ron and some of the other vets and see how it works because your truely making this site a shit hole. i don't hate you or noting i used to. latey you been postin some nice post in my opinon but you find a way to blow things away and make a big sence....

I think the defining moment of Wayne's career will be his last play...on the 3rd down and him making that clutch catch....I have been a huge fan of Wayne....and I am sad to see him never play another down in the NFL...but I hope the JETS do the honor for Wayne and RETIRE his #80 Jersey cause noone will ever match the heart and the desire of one of the greatest JETS in the history of the organization....THANK YOU AGAIN WAYNE...YOU WILL BE MISSED #80 FOREVER!!! THANK YOU FOR ALL THE MEMORIES!!!

We all knew this day was going to happen sooner than later and yet we can't believe that the UNDERDOG WAYNE CHREBET is never going to run out on gameday and join his teammates and to the roar of the LOYAL JETS fans....Wayne proved to his critics that he was good enough to play Pro-football, he proved that heart does take you places if you have it in you to achieve a dream and the people that need the most thanks for this great career are the JETS because they gave him a chance...they could have said NO and never give us a chance to see what Wayne could do on the football field...instead they gave him a shot and he proved for 11 yrs to be a good pick-up for the JETS...yes we all can remember the JETS Bears game 2 yrs ago when on the 4th down as we drove down the field and we tried to win the game and Wayne decided to try to jump over the defenders and ended up fumbling the ball but yet that is a side note to what Wayne meant to us JETS fans as a player, as a person and ultimately as a FAN FAVORITE....I can't say it enough...THANK YOU WAYNE FOR ALL THE MEMORIES!!!!

Here's an honest opinion for you... I could care less if they retire Martin's jersey. Martin was drafted by the NE Pats and played there for 4 years. Let them retire his jersey, that's where he started his career and really had his best years until last season.

However, that being stated... Chrebet opitimizes what a real "player" is. He didn't treat football as a "business" like you see most NFL players referring to it as. He had so much respect for being a Jet and playing for the team he "loved" that it came through in his playing. That's what made him great. Not to mention he is the clutchest player to ever wear a Jets jersey behind Joe Willie Namath.

Seriously, Martin's jersey number getting retired doesn't trump Chrebet's jersey getting retired. I think if 28 is retired, you better retire 80!

I could not have said it better...I totally agree with JETSON....even though Curtis should get #28 retired by the JETS #80 better damn well be retired before that ever happens....if you go and show the upmost respect to Curtis by retiring his # when he does finally hang up his cleats....you better have done it after Wayne and if the past 11 yrs don't constitute for doing such a noble act for Wayne...then do it for the mere fact that Wayne who was given no chance to play football went against the odds and did himself and the JETS proud by donning the NEW YORK JETS JERSEY WITH THE UPMOST RESPECT AND DESIRE which is what the NFL thrives on....

I said it before and I'll say it again.


I agree, completely. Wayne was a fan favorite,classy,respected and had a big heart for the organization and the fans. Not to mention a sureshot reciever and hands of glue. Fairwell Wayne you'll live on in spirit.

Now that, thats out... I can say that nobody is thinking retiring a number. numbers don't get retired for a player winning a popularity contests they get retired for GREATNESS.

If Wayne Chrebet wasn't great then neither was Curtis Martin! End of story!

Curtis might have been "consistant" but he was never "GREAT" in terms of stats. But everyone would agree that his number should be retired... it's two sided man. Apples to Apples... Curtis never played better than Chrebet. Chrebet has more clutch plays than Curtis will ever have. End of story.

And little boy, don't go telling people to shut up. Wayne is RETIRING which means his number should be RETIRED or else some shmuck ass punk WR is gonna wear it defame on of the greatest players to ever wear a Jets uniform.

STILL...WHAT IS THIS????? SOME ONE TELL ME??

One of the most beloved Jets calls it a carrer, so his goodbye topic becomes a debate on how good he really was. Your entitled to whatever you think about Wayne, but in his goodbye thread??!!?!?!

I personally think someone shouldn't lock this, but start a new Good Bye Wayne topic, where we can say good bye, and not fight about his skills and abilities. Start a "Chrebets number retired" Thread if you want to do that.

Wayne...I love you, and I will NEVER forget what you've done durning my time as a fan, and as previously stated, your number 1 on the list of guys that have left that have a strong place in my heart....

I always said I would pay so much for my friends and family to run out of the tunnel one day, just to know what it’s like to drive to a game with the music on, and you see everybody with your jersey on, the Jets chant, and being the center of that. It’s been the greatest 11 years of my life." - Wayne Chrebet

Sounds to me like Wayne also either believes his number will be retired or someone has already informed him that it will be. It definitely will not be this year though as Wayne has already said that he's going to wait until after the season ends to file his retirement papaers with the NFL.

“Once day I just remembered what happened during the play, and I just remember playing and I remember seeing like a real white light,” he said. “I don’t know if it was the field or just when my head hit the ground. I remember just kind of hearing voices and that kind of stuff and the next thing you know, I’m home. It’s weird.”

Now that sounds like something scary and someone that definitely put him body on the line for this team. JUST LIKE HE ALWAYS DID.
I will definitely be one of those fans wearing #80 proudly on the day that Mr. Chrebet steps foot onto the field at the Meadowlands for the last time.

Not to take anything away from Wayne, but wouldn't it be something if they retired he & Vinny's jerseys at the same time? Vinny could throw Wayne one final pass & have Wayne get his feet in right along the sideline one more last time? Can't think of anyone I'd rather see catch a Testaverde pass nor anyone I'd rather see throw Wayne his last catch. (Wishful thinking? Maybe not. Think about Mo & Marvin.)

Anyway....thank you Wayne for all of the great memories!!!! There will never be another #80 in this Jets fan's mind.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

I had a feeling when I saw that look of his eyes glazed over when he made the clutch 3rd down catch that it was the last time we were ever going to see Wayne play football....I think the best way to honor Wayne would be on Opening Day next season as we bring in a NEW HC(who knows who it may be), a NEW RB(REGGIE BUSH), and WAYNE'S # being retired....on a Warm September afternoon drinks.gif HERE'S TO YOU WAYNE!!!!

WTF.gif How come that whenever my opinion is different than yours, I need a slap in the face or I need to get off the site?  You and Vilma#51.  It gets ridiculous.


You know why you need a smack in the face for saying Wayne should not have his jersey retired. The thing you said, you need stats to be considered able to have your jersey number retired, then you would be saying that when Derek Jeter retires from the yankees, he shouldn't have his number 2 jersey retired, and if you really believe that, then you truely are a moron, I have said it over, and over again.

Wayne Chrebet is to Jets as Derek Jeter is to Yankees.
