Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:14 PM) finally made a play on defense once Pryor came in
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:15 PM) besides that INT, Geno looks better than last season IMO. seems more comfortable and is going through progressions.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:18 PM) DeMario Davis seems like hes poised to have a breakout season at LB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:50 PM) It was nice seeing Pryor in, he made some plays. I think hes going to be the real deal and that we will hit on a stud with him
azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:43 PM) The pick by Geno seemed to be more on Nelson. Nelson sat on his route. Geno threw it were he was supposed to be.
azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:44 PM) Who knows though
santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) http://gfycat.com/Mi...idHookersealion
santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) Gotta fix that
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:35 PM) Is anyone else as concerned as I am about the secondary?
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:36 PM) I know it's preseason and all but even with Milliner in on the first game we gave up a TD on the first drive to the Colts
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:37 PM) Patterson looked like me out there and Wilson got torched last night
Smedsthejet Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:26 PM) Concerned about the right side of the OLine too - too many penalties and Giacomini wasn't that much better than against the Colts when he was poor
SackExchange71 Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:31 PM) Imo i still think howard is better then giacomini..Wish they never let him walk.Giacomini had alot of flags in seattle also
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:33 AM) Howard recieved a huge contract in Oakland. Way over his actual value.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 10:08 AM) So did we make a trade for a CB yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:51 PM) Milliner did suffer a high ankle sprain, that sucks. could linger all year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:52 PM) I think Patterson sucked vs the Colts because he was injured, which he always is.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:49 PM) As much as people criticized Tannanbaum for spending too much. It's starting to look like Idzik is going to be too cheap.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:52 PM) You get what you pay for and when you let quality players go because you don't want to pay them, this is what happens. You're left with scrub players.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 07:55 PM) I'm still on board with the Idzik plan. Even with Revis and Revis we still are not going to the SB this year. But the down time sucks. If Milliner comes back healthy by week 3 or so we should be fine.
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.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.

Posted 02 July 2009 - 02:14 PM

The NFL just released this statement on LB Calvin Pace through a league spokesperson:

“Calvin Pace of the New York Jets has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2009 season for violating the NFL Policy on Performing Enhancing Substances.”

Pace, who is eligible to practice with his teammates during training camp and participate in all of the club’s preseason games, will begin serving his suspension prior to the Jets’ regular season opener at Houston on September 13. He will then be eligible to return to the team on Monday, October 5, following the Jets’ October 4 game at New Orleans.

“We respect the League’s decision and look forward to Calvin’s return for our Monday Night game at Miami,” said the Jets in a statement.

The 6’4”, 270-pound Pace was a key free agent acquisition when he joined the Jets on March 3, 2008. And the fluid outside linebacker didn’t disappoint in year one, racking up a career-high seven sacks for New York's AFC representative. Pace, whose 12 tackles behind the line of scrimmage led the team, also paced the Jets with a career-best four fumble recoveries (tying for the NFL lead in that category) and tied for the club-high with five forced fumbles.

“This is a situation that resulted from an over-the-counter dietary supplement that contained a substance that I did not know violated the League’s policy," he said in a statement. "I am responsible for what I put into my body and I should have paid closer attention to the League’s guidelines. I regret that this has happened and apologize to my teammates, the entire Jets organization as well as the fans. Hopefully, this does not distract from our ultimate goal of winning the Super Bowl.”

After Pace spent his first five pro seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, the Jets reportedly inked the coveted defender to a six-year, $42 million dollar deal with a $20 million signing bonus last spring. His absence will be missed early on in ’09 and someone will have to step up in his absence.

Selected sixth overall in the 2008 NFL draft, Ohio State product Vernon Gholston missed important time last spring because the school year didn’t end until June. But in 2009, the 6’3”, 264-pound Gholston has been present at all of the Jets’ offseason activities and has rarely ventured far from the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center. Even as most of the team is away until training camp, Gholston has been getting in extra work in both the weight room and the film room.

“It’s been huge, just my growth as a player and within this defense,” he said this spring. "I’ve actually been able to go through the installs, be a part of the OTAs and kind of grasp all the things I missed last year.”

When the Jets hired Rex Ryan in January, the rookie head coach expressed his excitement to mentor the talented Gholston.

"I see some things in his play that I knew that I would like to coach this young man because I don't even think he's scratched the surface of the kind of player he can be," Ryan said.

Back in 2007, Gholston racked up 14 sacks to set an Ohio State record. His 22.5 career sacks were the fifth highest total in school history and Jets Nation will be eager to watch his development under the new defensive staff.

"What we’ve done a good job of doing is identifying what a guy can do and let him do that. Let's turn him loose and let him play to his strengths. At the same time we’re working on what he might be deficient in. A guy like Vernon, we’re going to find out early what he can do,” said defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. “I think a big part with him is getting him some confidence early.”

In the Jets’ 3-4 front, David Harris and Bart Scott will man the inside ‘backer positions. Veteran Bryan Thomas, who picked up 5.5 sacks last season, will return on the outside and now Gholston will have a golden opportunity to contribute. The Jets also like their young OLB reserves in Marques Murrell and Jason Trusnik.

The new-look defense will be challenged immediately in Jets' opening quartet of games — @ Houston (9/13), vs. New England (9/20), vs. Tennessee (9/27) and at New Orleans (10/4). In 2008, the Texans finished 3rd in total offense, the Patriots finished 5th and the Saints were No.1 overall.

Well that sucks...... We may have to start the season with Gholston as a starter. Actually Marques Murrel or Jason Trusnik may get it, especially Trusnik. He did really good against the Dolphins last year when he was on the field, but I thought he was a ILB. Maybe that guy Jammal Westerman can step up and get playing time?

It's time for Gholston to step up. This is a classic example of one mans misfortune could be other mans opportunity.

That fuckin Blows man. EEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRR.
You know, what kind of illegal drug could be in a dietary supplement that could give you an edge playin football? couldt he have checked with someone from the Jets Organization or the strength and conditioning coach to make sure he is not putting something in his body that could get him suspended. This is a big loss IMHO for the 1st 4 games...dam

Dear, that is a big loss. Many players have stepped up though over the years. With this news Gholston should be primed to compete as a starter, I can't see him playing too many plays. It will most likely be a heavy rotation with others on the depth chart.


I don't think there is any chance Pace will try and appeal the suspension either.

Agreed. Hopefully it's a blessing in disguise, and that the new regime can have a positive impact on Vernon.

If anything I think they should give Gholston the starting job those first couple of games because then the coaches and front office would not have to wait long to determine whether he was all hype and workouts leading up to last year's draft.

We have 1 receiver, dunno whos playing qb yet(neither are proven), and are biggest playmaker is disgruntled and you think we are going to be unstoppable? Now, i could understand maybe a wierd feeling we can contend or going to be good or our defense will be lockdown, however, to say our team will be unstoppable is beyond a bold statement. Unstoppable means we have no flaws and we just roll over people, we dont have anywhere near the offensive fire power for that. Not trying to get on you just stating what should be the obvious.

Calvin tries to explain.



Calvin Pace Trying to Explain
Posted on July 3rd, 2009 by Bassett Calvin Pace has put up a post on his Yardbarker blog, and in which he essentially says the same thing as his statement to the NFL, but in which he does a little more explaining.

I’m sure you’ll hear this news eventually, and I’d rather you hear it from me first. I have been suspended for four games by the NFL due to my mistakenly ingesting a banned substance. I apologize to my family, the jets organization, my teammates, fans and friends. This situation occurred purely by accident and was in absolutely no way a result of my trying to cheat the system put in place by the NFL. However, as a man and a public figure I am aware that I must take full responsibility for everything I do. I also know that it’s just as important to learn from my mistakes and help others avoid them in any way that I can. In the future, I will be more proactive in knowing what substances are banned and EXACTLY what is in everything I put into my body. I truly hope that my mistake does not bring unwanted distractions to my teammates and our ultimate goal of being a championship team. I also hope that you, my fans, will forgive this accidental indiscretion.

The NFL should have a computerized system that stocks and delivers authorized dietary supplements that players request for their health etc,in this way they share in the responsibility. And when you still find cases that are corrupted the NFL has a stake in it and could be disipline by the federal govnerment. All those in favor say I.

Uhhh, it's called being the COMMISSIONER and that title entitles him to administer due process as he and NFLPA have agreed to. Pace AND any other player who gets caught ARE MORONS, they ALL know what is legal & illegal and they just try to get over. When they get caught they ALL give the same old BS line "I was getting an over the counter dietary supplement & it contained some banned substance that I was not aware of" yada yada yada...FVCKING MORONS!!! Furious.png
PS I think Goodell is doing an EXCELLENT job, screw these primodonnas, they get what they deserve
