mgjetman Icon : (14 September 2014 - 06:47 PM) Getting lazy with a minute 50 on the clock before half was the nail in the coffin.
Mr_Jet Icon : (14 September 2014 - 06:48 PM) The ref
Mr_Jet Icon : (14 September 2014 - 06:49 PM) There is plenty of blame to spread around. No team should lose a 17 point lead anyway.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 06:50 PM) DUDS - Miliner and Marty
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 06:50 PM) BRUTAL LOSS
Mr_Jet Icon : (14 September 2014 - 06:52 PM) I really don't blame Marty because it's the refs job to make sure he sees who is calling the timeout. Plus the ball had already been snapped before he even noticed somebody was calling a TO.
mgjetman Icon : (14 September 2014 - 06:53 PM) Just gave that game away. WTH!!!
Mr_Jet Icon : (14 September 2014 - 06:54 PM) He didn't even blow the whistle until Geno already had dropped back to pass. The play was already well underway.
bleedsgreen Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:03 PM) I heard it when the ball was already in the air
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:05 PM) but it shouldn't of come down to that TO blunder
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:05 PM) we did give up a 18 point lead
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:05 PM) so we fucked up and lost
bleedsgreen Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:05 PM) True
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:05 PM) time to get ready for MNF
santana Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:09 PM) Well it sucks when you start to feel the jets are going to lose the game them selves
santana Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:09 PM) the Vick play worthless
santana Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:09 PM) that run on 3rd and 5 worthless
santana Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:09 PM) chris Johnson also I don't know what his numbers were but ivory seemed to be a better back
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:13 PM) Marty just picks the worse time to call those wildcat plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:13 PM) they are drive killers
ROBJETS Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:27 PM) Problem is the corners. We knew this before the start of the season. I was amazed at how well they did last week and the first half but eventually the weakness showed
ROBJETS Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:28 PM) The corner positions will be addressed next year. Technically we are still in a rebuilding phase.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 07:39 PM) we did go toe to toe against a SB contender and we really shouldn't be heartbroken but if you call yourself a JETS fan and aren't a little pissed over a W that we had in our control then you need to go and hand in your JETS gear ... I'm looking at you 115
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 08:24 PM) 18 penalties in 2 games
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 08:25 PM) unacceptable
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 08:27 PM) Geno dropped from #1 to #28 in TOTAL QBR
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 09:10 PM) Cutler just got popped right in the chest
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 09:11 PM) that was a squared up right in the middle of the chest hit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (14 September 2014 - 09:13 PM) nice one handed catch by Marshall
MikeGangGree... Icon : (14 September 2014 - 10:06 PM) NFL rules state that only the head coach can call a timeout on the sidelines…

Except in Green Bay where anybody up to the third row can call a timeout.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (14 September 2014 - 10:06 PM) I love NFL memes
MikeGangGree... Icon : (14 September 2014 - 11:30 PM) Well I will be at the game next Monday night
MikeGangGree... Icon : (14 September 2014 - 11:30 PM) So I will be doing everything I can to help our team win!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (15 September 2014 - 10:15 AM) 2nd year in a row we should be 2-0

New York Jets Match Browns' Offer To Safety Abram Elam

The Jets have matched the one-year, $1.5 million offer sheet the Cleveland Browns extended to safety Abram Elam, the club has announced.

The club had signed Elam, a restricted free agent, to a one-year, $1.01 million tender before the Browns extended the offer sheet. The Jets had until Tuesday to match the offer.

Last season, Elam, who took over for the injured Eric Smith, turned into a playmaker. He finished with 57 tackles, an interception (returned 92 yards for a touchdown) and three forced fumbles, including one in a Week 15 game against Buffalo that was returned for a game-winning touchdown by defensive end Shaun Ellis with two minutes left to play. Another forced fumbled by Elam was returned for a touchdown by linebacker Calvin Pace in a Week 10 game against the Rams.

The move to retain Elam stops -- at least momentarily -- the parade of former Jets to the Browns, who are coached by ex-Jets coach Eric Mangini. Defensive end C.J. Mosley, CB Hank Poteat and LBs David Bowens and Eric Barton have signed with the Browns.

This is good, I know he's weak on pass defense but he's a playmaker & a hard hitter, I think Rex feels he's coachable and he will teach Elam his way.

Definately have to agree with that. Definately not a really great cover safety, but as a play making safety he was the best in my mind. Just look at 3 plays and you'll see what he can do. The three plays by the way from me were his sack/force fumble on Marc Bulger when we faced the Rams, his 92 yard INT against the Bills after a play that got Buffalo inside the 15, and of course... the sack/ force fumble on J.P. which everyone that's a Jets fan knows how it ended. Great save for New York keeping this guy. Also with Jim Leonhard we actually have a really good backfield in terms of just safeties. Hopefully with Rex's scheme Abram will be a bigger impact player then last year. Great job again by Mike "The Man" Tennenbaum.

We do need him for depth.. Rex probably likes the way he hits muthaf*ckas.. It's cheap at 1.5. Good call Tanny.

I have a question, Is Eric Smith still on this team? If so we should release him and let Mangini pick him up and use the freed up cap space to get Elam back. Elam>Smith that's a fact!

Eric Smith is on the last year of his initial rookie contract....as a 3rd round pick, I would guess that it is in the $550,000 range. Smith is better in coverage by default... I am an Elam fan, but lets remember that he was voted "slowest" DB on the team. So picking up the proper angles is a must this TC...

If Safety coach Doug Plank can turn Elam's coverage skills around, then this may turn out to be a very good move to keep Elam. But right now, eventhough he has made plays, he still needs alot of coaching in his coverage skills...because there were times last year that he was lost "in space"...

And Smith might not make the team...or Plank will make him a player. Simple as that..

Elam can play ST and be back up for us, don't mind bringing him back. He does play hard and is physical something he will fit well in as thats the direction Rex has said he wants.
