New York Jets owner, Woody Johnson, named US ambassador to the UK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) I would do anything to get one of them as OC
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) texans coach? i doubt he gets fired
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) but he would be ideal if the jets were to flush bowles out

azjetfan Icon : (05 January 2017 - 09:54 PM) Sean Payton will get another HC gig. Obrien would be good.
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:18 PM) Howard from Alabama seems legit. #88 TE
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:20 PM) Williams the WR from Clemson looks like they are out to get him. He has taken some huge hits
vjdbbq Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:12 AM) We'll take Williams in the first round .
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 10:48 AM) I'd love Howard in the 2nd round if he's still there. I like Williams a lot as well, but I just don't see WR being big enough of a need, and there should be better talent on the board at 6
Jetsfan115 Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:21 PM) Raiders OC Musgrave not expected to return to OAK. what do you think about getting him? he did wonders with the oakland offense this year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:39 PM) Definitely an appealing choice given with his history of progressing Carr. We need someone with a track record of grooming young QBs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (12 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) I want Watson now! after what he did Monday night I'm sold on him at QB. He moved the ball all night on Alabama and after hurts scored that TD he just told his team "Lets end this"
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:31 PM) An Ohio prosecutor says he wants to know what punishment Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones faces from the NFL before deciding how to proceed over Jones' latest arrest, Dan Sewell of the Associated Press reports..

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WKRC-TV he's asking "what is the normal" for a player with multiple offenses and who's been suspended before.

An NFL spokesman said on Thursday that Jones' case is "under review" and declined to comment further.

Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. Authorities say he was so combative he had to be placed in a restraint chair.

Jones says he anticipates the charges will be dismissed.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:32 PM) we wont get watson. he's going 1st overall to the browns
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:06 PM) Is Watson a product of Clemson's staff and supporting cast? Taj Boyd also put up some decent numbers if I remember correctly but he couldn't even make a scout team in the NFL.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) From what I have read (although limited) he is not the highest ranked QB in the draft.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) "No quarterback in this draft -- not Mitch Trubisky, not Watson, not DeShone Kizer -- is considered a sure thing. The folks at Scouts Inc. rank Trubisky, Watson and Kizer as the 21st, 38th and 46th prospects on their big board, respectively." ESPN
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:12 PM) If we can get a decent return for Richardson we may be able to make a move into the mid teens to early 20s if the Brass really likes Watson.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:13 PM) Personally I don't think the jets have a clue on who they will take. We still have to hit FA and manage our roster
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 11:46 PM) Jets to interview Broncos assistant Studesville for OC
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:28 PM) Why? seems like a weird choice
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:29 PM) Leonard Williams replacing Khalil Mack in Pro Bowl
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm not buying Watson, even after that championship game. Dude threw too many picks in his day
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm really curious to see what we get for Richardson, but I have a bad feeling his value is at an all time low between his crap season and bad attitude
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 12:16 AM) I agree. He is a first round talent but a fourth round headache. We will be lucky to get a 2nd
Chadforpresi... Icon : (14 January 2017 - 08:41 AM) Yeah precisely. 2nd rounder would be a huge stretch. 3rd or 4th is more likely
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:51 PM) Seems like a slightly steep price but overall cool with it, he's turned into a good player and is still young. Just needs to stay healthy.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 January 2017 - 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?

A poor man's Reggie-Duece combo? Now if THAT isn't insulting I don't know what is. First off Leon can actually run the ball 10 times better than Reggie. What does Reggie average, 3.6 a carry? Leon averages 4.3 ... that's a whole lot better than 3.6 I'll tell you that right now. Duece vs Jones? I'll take Jones 10 times out of 10. Duece is fragile and I prefer Jones running style and his monster arms. He breaks tackles and necks with those guns.

Seriously, have you been hearing that because that's gonna really piss me off? It's so retarded it's not even funny. Leon played better than Reggie.

Don't believe me? It's because you're believing the HYPE MACHINE known as Reggie Bush. OVER RATED!
See for yourself!
Reggie Bush: http://www.nfl.com/p...ayerpage/407605
Leon Washington: http://www.nfl.com/p...ayerpage/423207

Rushing Yards:
Bush | 565 | 3.6 Average | 6 TDs | 27 First Downs | 18 Longest Run
Leon | 650 | 4.3 Average | 4 TDs | 33 First Downs | 23 Longest Run

Receiving Yards:
Bush | 742 Yards | 88 Receptions | 8.4 Yards/Catch | 2 TDs | 74 Longest Catch
Leon | 270 Yards | 25 Receptions | 10.8 Yards/Catch | 0 TDs | 64 Longest Catch
Reggie Bush touched the ball 68 times more than Leon did. Look at the difference. Mostly those touches were in receptions. Can you imagine if we threw Leon 63 more screen passes? Get outta here! Poor man's huh? Why, because he was a 4th round pick and had ZERO hype? Maybe that's what it is. FRB! [ F*ck Reggie Bush ]

Leon isn't a poor mans Reggie, he's better and I honestly believe that which is why I was a little bit upset with the Thomas Jones acquisition. I'm pretty sure that Thomas Jones is better than Duece. DM is good, I'm not saying he sucks. But he's not better than TJ. I'm really pissed off that you're hearing that. Damn your ears biggrin.gif.


Yes I really have been hearing that but the people who I have been hearing that from are Eagles fans and they're freaking retarded and they thought their team was a SB team in the playoffs crazy.gif . Anyway you dont know how many times i've been through defending the Jets they're so stupid. The only reason why I threw that in their was just to draw a comparrison to the 2 backfields and that we should try to do some pre play sets like the Saints when they had both Duece and Reggie in at the same time. But I'm sure with Mangini and Schotty's inteligence we can do much more creative stuff w/ Leon and Jones in there.

IMO Jones and Washington are a 'poor man's' Bush-McAllister as Washington doesn't offer the all around threat that Bush does. I would take McAllister over Jones but not Washington over Bush simply because teams have to account for Bush whenever he is on the field and he is nearly as good in the slot as he is at tailback whereas Leon is less of a receiving threat.

Agreed. To say Washington is better, or as good, as Bush is absurd and biased. Bush can lineup in the slot and pose as much of a threat as Marshall Faulk once did. Yea, Washington is shifty, BUT PLEASE. Some people are so biased it's insane.

I think Bush's YPC are skewed.. they were AWFUL during the beginning of the year and stepped it up better towards the end. I still believe he was overhyped as a runner. He's a great out of the backfield receiver and occasional runner but he'll never be effective by himself. Adrian Peterson is a MUCH better RB prospect than Reggie.

Leon is just sick wit it we all know that. 4.3 YPC behind out suspect run blocking o-line is pretty damn good.

Yeah .. biased because he DID BETTER! Some people are easily influenced by what the media world tells them to do and where in a draft someone was taken. I'm talking numbers here. I'm talking playmaking. Bush is a playmaker but so is Washington and he showed that alot.

We don't have to line Washington up in a slot. I'm sure we could but that's not what the point is. He ran the ball a whole lot better than Bush and had a better receiving average. I think teams were saying "You gotta watch #29 out there." Obviously Bush gets attention because he's Reggie Bush but I don't think he's a good running back and he's got a really big ego right now.

So is that biased.... sure whatever. But I watched Leon play and you guys don't give him any credit whatsoever. He played on par with Maroney too but some of you think Leon is merely a 3rd down back at best. That's bullshit. I brought the numbers and stats don't lie.

I felt the same way about the Bush hype before he even stepped on the field.
I am not much of a stats guy but at the end of the season I think I saw that bush didn't make the top 20 in any catorgory as an RB.I felt the same way about Ricky williams when he came out of college. Ricky won't have any records in the NfL when he calls it a day.

Who are you trying to convince, me or you?

Teams have to alter their entire defensive game plan as to where Bush is on the field. Someone has to spy him no matter what. This is why he can lineup in the slot, outside, or in the backfield. This is why they can fake double reverses and screens to him, because everyone runs to where he is. He breaks open games. Did you watch the Giants game where he actually got 20 carries? He went off for 126 yards and a touchdown.

"We don't have to line Washington up in the slot." Stupid statement. If he had the god-given talent that Bush had, THEN THEY ABSOLUTELY WOULD LINE HIM UP THERE. Because this would cause defenses fits. You can preach about yards per carry all you want, that doesn't come close to telling the whole story. Bush has 88 FRIGGIN CATCHES FOR A REASON. If Washington had the abilities that Bush did, they would throw to him 100 times, but he doesnt. Washington is a quick, shifty back who is EXCELLENT at making catches out of the backfield and throwing some quick jukes on defenders. But please, don't say he's better than Bush. Bush brings so much more to the table. Bush is a better FOOTBALL PLAYER at this point in their careers. Who knows what will happen from this point on.

Saying "they could, but they don't" is a useless argument. Because if they could, THEY WOULD. If they could, it would open up the offense so much more. I love Leon. I show him "some damn love." But I don't view him while wearing some peachy, green-colored goggles. I think he'll be awesome as a complement to Thomas Jones, being able to screw with defenses since he's such a different runner than Jones.

It's called realism. Does that make me less of a fan that you? Maybe by your crazy definition.

Ricky Williams is a much different case who cannot be placed side-by-side with normal human beings. That man is a f'ed up individual, one whose mind cannot be explained by mere homo-sapiens. If he was normal, he would have put up insane numbers by the time his career came to an end.

Just a feeling here Bush does'nt break the nfl rushing record and probably would not get to 10th.
I think he will get a serious injury and never be the same , just a feeling.

No one is saying he is going to break the NFL rushing record! That's not the player he is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you saying Leon will get closer to that milestone than Bush? I don't get it. Stay on topic.

That's the point. No one was predicting that he would break the rushing record when he came into the league. People thought he would be a guy that could carry the ball 10-15 times and get 5-10 catches a game, which is exactly what he did in his ROOKIE YEAR. He will get better running the ball, but he's never gonna get you 2000 yards on the ground. Give him a couple years and he will be a 1000 yard rusher and receiver though. To say Leon is better than Bush is just ludacris.

Well that's your opinion, because if we gave Leon Washington 60 million dollars and 30 million guaranteed I think we'd throw him the ball in the slot. That's not what the Jets ask him to do but to say Leon can't line up and play WR as a football player is ignorant of the details anyway because we don't have the ability to see him do it or not do it.

The Jets don't use him that way because he's Leon. And I don't view him with greeny goggles either. And I sure as hell don't just accept Bush as a great player either. I'm talking production and production where it counts. Leon plays RB and he has a better receiving average. Look at the stats. He's a better running back and he can catch the ball just as well as Reggie Bush. I dont get how Bush "catches" the ball better than Leon. They both make the catch. It's what you do with it when you got it and Leon has done the same shit Reggie has done and then some because Leon can atleast run from the backfield.

One has hype, the other has zero hype even amongst the home fans. Their production is the same except Leon is a better runner. He doesn't see that many catches because the offense doesn't revolve around Leon like it does Bush. The doesn't mean he's not equally as good as a football player or as physically gifted. And I don't give a shit if it's ludacris or stupid because I take it at face value. Drama aside it is what it is. That's what I'm saying.

Leon has a better receiving average because he caught something like a quarter of the balls Reggie Bush caught over the course of a year which has an effect as the more you catch, the more your receiving average generally drops slightly. Plus teams didn't focus as much on Leon as they would have done for Bush and that's a fact. Some of it is the hype surrounding Bush meaning teams gameplan for him more but he is more of a versatile threat than Leon is.
The fact is what beanz said - about if Leon had the ability that Bush has to play in the slot then he would do it because Mangini and Schottenheimer love to play to their player's strengths. He is a good catcher of the ball but if he was a decent slot receiver as well they would have put him there considering the type of wide open, multiple look offense we ran.
Both had very good rookie seasons and Leon came out of nowhere to be honest whereas Bush was expected to have the impact he had. That's the main difference between the two players but I don't see Washington having as productive career as Bush as Washington isn't going to be the starter here for the next couple of years considering Jones just got brought in whereas Bush and McAllister will continue to share carries in an almost 50:50 ratio.

I've seen Leon shift out of the backfield into the slot during the season. It's stupid to say Leon couldn't play the slot as a WR because he's a RB. Reggie Bush playing the slot as a WR is using Reggie Bush's strengths in getting him a mismatch because he's pretty horrible running out of the backfield.

I dont care if Reggie Bush has more physical talent, where he was selected in the draft and the money he's getting paid equals an offense being built around him. The Jets dont do that with Leon, not because he doesn't have the ability, but because they don't ask him to do that and he's not the focus of the offense. I'd rather have Brad Smith in the slot than Leon anyway.

I'm saying Reggie Bush had a dissapointing season compared to the hype. Leon had a great season when Mangini gave him the ball. I'd rather have Leon than Reggie, Reggie Bush is over rated. Just because the coach says, "Throw the pass to Reggie" about 10 times a game doesn't make him better. It means he gets the ball more. I'm sure Leon could catch 10 passes a game if Schotty wanted to do that. I'm sure he'd have a whole lot more TDs too.

I'm not sure what you're laughing at but 3.6 ypc sucks. If you weren't dissapointed with Reggie Bush as a pure RB then you're the one that's hopeless. I can't see how you can't comprehend the numbers.... I'm glad you're done with it.

Well that's your opinion, because if we gave Leon Washington 60 million dollars and 30 million guaranteed I think we'd throw him the ball in the slot. That's not what the Jets ask him to do but to say Leon can't line up and play WR as a football player is ignorant of the details anyway because we don't have the ability to see him do it or not do it.

The Jets don't use him that way because he's Leon. And I don't view him with greeny goggles either. And I sure as hell don't just accept Bush as a great player either. I'm talking production and production where it counts. Leon plays RB and he has a better receiving average. Look at the stats. He's a better running back and he can catch the ball just as well as Reggie Bush. I dont get how Bush "catches" the ball better than Leon. They both make the catch. It's what you do with it when you got it and Leon has done the same shit Reggie has done and then some because Leon can atleast run from the backfield.

One has hype, the other has zero hype even amongst the home fans. Their production is the same except Leon is a better runner. He doesn't see that many catches because the offense doesn't revolve around Leon like it does Bush. The doesn't mean he's not equally as good as a football player or as physically gifted. And I don't give a shit if it's ludacris or stupid because I take it at face value. Drama aside it is what it is. That's what I'm saying.



Reggie Bush is put into the slot because he can catch just as good as wide recievers and can make moves that are way better than Wr's once he has the ball.

You think because the jets aren't paying leon that much is the reason they don't line him up at wr? They don't ask him to line up in the slot because he's not as good as a wr. That's the reason why bush gets that kind of money, because he can do it all.

If leon could catch and produce as well as reggie bush, why wouldn't u ask him to do it? You're saying he does but the numbers are the same because he hasn't caught nearly as many ball as busch. plus when leon comes out of the backfield he catches the ball against linebackers, while busch has cb's lining up across from him. so it makes him even more dangerous.

what u said about brad smith is exactly true. the jets would rather have brad smith in the slot also, but if the jets had Reggie bush, they would rather have him in the slot. that's the point.

very well said. But don't worry, he'll be sure to come back with some stats for you. Because as we know, "the stats don't lie." blowup.gif

people don't realize that bush is a serious threat, because, if the saints come out in I formation and you come out with 3 linebackers, you can throw bush in motion and use him against a linebacker.

If you come out in nickel, then you can have an easier time running the ball. people do not have to do that for leon, regardless of what people think.

Fair enough. I still think Leon is equally as talented as a football player and a better running back.
