Jets 0-2 vs bills this year. Does Rex Ryan survive the year?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:55 AM) Like how do you get blown out by a team that didn't practice while you had 2 weeks to prepare?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:55 AM) That kind of stuff may force Woody to make the big changes and fire everyone
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:55 AM) John Idzik has handled the QB situation terribly. 2 times he pretty much handed the job to his draft pick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 AM) Besides Sheldon Richardson, his drafts have been awful.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 AM) Maybe Woody will clean house and go all out for Jim Harbaugh, that probably won't happen though but it would be a franchise changer.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:07 AM) Harbaugh would be amazing...but because it makes sense it won't be done
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 AM) According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets blocked coach Rex Ryan from talking to Mehta about a bye-week visit to his ailing father, legendary NFL defensive guru Buddy Ryan. Buddy, who rose to prominence as defensive coordinator of the ’85 Bears and then coached the Eagles and Cardinals, is battling cancer.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:52 AM) Mehta interprets the muzzling of Rex Ryan as proof positive that, once the season ends, Ryan will no longer be the team’s head coach. Apparently, the team fears that Rex would become more sympathetic in the eyes of the fan base if he’s dumped by the team at a time when his father is fighting a serious illness.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:05 AM) Mehta is an idiot
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:25 AM) If colt McCoy lights it up do the jets make a move?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:27 AM) I don't even care what they do for a while
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:28 AM) The team is a catastrophe
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:29 AM) I didn't see the game
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:29 AM) I remember the first bills game though I'm guessing it was like that with more sleeping in the end zone
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:32 AM) I'm with 0099...I hope they keep getting destroyed
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 11:33 AM) it's a very Jets-esque move to sign McCoy if he does well
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:53 AM) I think they sign RGIII, Cutler, or Bradford
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 12:10 PM) why not all three
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:11 PM) Knowing this team, I wouldn't put that past them
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:07 PM) RAUL FOR QB
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 02:10 PM) the only real choice
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 02:10 PM) almost uefa time
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:11 PM) RAUL>SMITHSIAH, JUST ACCEPT IT
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:22 PM) FIRE IZDICK
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:07 PM) Rocking the atletico kit today 4-0 THE RAUL INFLUENCE

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:00 PM) Look at what a great system can do for a QB, Sanchez looks like a different QB with the Eagles.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:00 PM) Scanning the field and making quick decisions, I like how Chip has Sanchez throwing on the run which he was always great at.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:01 PM) I really hope we finally bring in a good offensive minded coach.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 05:45 PM) I really can't wait for this season to be done and over with

I'd take him, depending on cash. If he'll come back here for a cheap price, I would welcome him back, otherwise no thanks if he's expensive.

Im not so sure, because he has been injury prone lately, and I guess if Thomas Jones hits the UFA, and if we can land Turner, I rather have both of them then Jordan.
Though, if we had Jordan we would have a pretty good 1-2 punch with Washington and Jordan, and believe me, w/e we do in the offseason on getting a RB, this offense is still going to use Washington, he is too good of a back not to use. He is the homerun threat that we havent had in a while, the type of guy that makes gamechangeing plays, like with that 60 yard screen pass, and also that 40 yard one against the Bills that got our offense going. Leon Washington is a Gamebreaker!!

We should at least consider it, especially if he wants to come back.

id definitely take him...the power back to go with washington. we'd have a great inside/outside combo. i dont think his price would be too high since he hasnt really done much in oakland, due to injury and a pretty bad supporting cast. (offensive line, cant pass so opponents stack the box against the run etc.) he's also still 28 with almost no mileage on him. getting him would open up our options in a huge way come draft time.

Yeah, why a team would cut a 28 year old is beyond me. Especially when he's not the problem for the team. They need offensive lineman, and a quarterback which they should be getting with their first pick. This franchise really has gotten stupid since making it to the superbowl that one year.

If Leon Washington was the #1 all year long, he would have rushed for 1,000 +yds. I'd like to see him do it all year long. We could just draft a bruiser in the middle rounds to compliment him. Tangini said they wan't to build this team through the draft, and RB is a very important position obviously, so I think they do it through the draft. No Lamont return.

yea if washington had started the whole year he may have got 1000 yards but it is also hard to say that he actually could carry the load. he has shared his carries almost his whole carrer...I dont think he can rush for 325+ times a year. that being said Id love to have lamont back . Jordan is a good back and rushed for 1000 with that awful line. Bring him back here with a better line and a better offense and id say he would be a very good back. Him and leon would be excellent. Although he has been injury prone a little i think its stupid for the raiders to cut him because like somone above me said...He is not the problem. Its hard to rush for yardage when no one is afraid of your pass and your O-line is awful....He is a good back and if the price is right id look into it...

Yea I would definitely be stoked to see Lamont back in Green and White, but for some reason I just don't think Tangini will do it. I think Anthony Clement is a goner and the high profile player they grab will be a right tackle.

The Bears aren't going to release Jones and if they want to get rid of him they will trade him, which would cost us at least a 1st rounder. Turner will require a 1st to get too so IMO he's out of the picture.
Jordan wouldn't be a bad option but an equal talent could be found in the first two rounds such as Michael Bush and is a younger, cheaper alternative than Jordan.

for this reason doesnt leonard look like the best option. Let leon do a big portion of the work with leonard spelling him, blocking for him, and seeing a ton of redzone action...

FINALLY!!!! A REAL BIG BOY!!!

Jordan is too injury proned and wouldn't be worth the asking price. He has had injuries in each season, even as a backup for us. Give me Turner and I will be very happy.

lamont is just way oeverated, when he was with the jets he got a lot of credit running behind curtis but i doubt he'll be as productive running behind leon.

I could be wrong, but I thought Jones was an UFA this offseason. Even if he wasn't, he wouldn't cost a first rounder. Probably more like a second or third, depending on how eager they are to get rid of him. And I agree that Turner isn't worth a first rounder. I'm not one who really thinks the Jets need a RB early, but I wouldn't mind Michael Bush. He is huge and would be a perfect compliment to Leon.

Thomas Jones could be a UFA, he has a option in his deal, if the Bears want him for another season and he wants to be there then they can go through with the option that will make him a Bear for one more year. Otherwise he could hit the UFA, alot of people think that the Bears may want to just let him go so they can really start running Benson more, and make him the feature back there.

Jones was the better back all season and he has proved more than Michael Turner in the league so if the Chargers get a 1st for him then that sets Jones' value slightly higher IMO although you can't go much migher than a 1st crazy.gif . Even though they have Benson why would they want to get rid of him anyway? It's a similar situation in NO with two highly paid backs and I don't see McAllister or Bush leaving any time soon. A lot of teams are shifting towards having two RBs who share the load and him and Benson were a successful tandem so why should they break it up?
Jones has outplayed Benson so far and got the Bears into the playoffs the past two seasons as the starting RB. Despite having a lot invested in Benson why should they go for him when it has been proven to them that Jones is the better back of the two right now?
I'd rather get a guy like Michael Bush though: younger and cheaper although a bit less talented but at least we won't pay over the odds for him.
