ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 06:06 PM) I can't wait to see what Maccagnan does in Free Agency and in the draft

The Jets are hiring Bears nat'l scout Rex Hogan as their director of college scouting. Chicago has released him from his contract

The Jets are also hiring Rams scout Brian Heimerdinger to a prominent front-office role. St. Louis let him out of his deal.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:48 PM) Heimerdinger is our director of player personnel now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) That is Mike Heimerdinger's son who used to be our OC in 05
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) hopefully his son isn't as horrible as his pop was at play calling
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 PM) Everyone looks like a bad playcaller when you have no QB and have no talent
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:18 PM) When Heimerdinger was our OC it was when we had a ton of injuries on offense, were down to our 4th or 5th string QB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:42 PM) FIRE HOGAN

azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 05:36 PM) this site has become dismal.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:47 PM) Thanks Obama.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:49 PM) But really for all of you complaining about the site. What is there to talk about? We have a new GM and HC that we don't know how good or bad they'll be yet. So there really isn't much to talk about with the draft still months away.
azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 09:59 PM) Even I can't blame Obama :drinks:
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) It could be worse
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) we could be Phinzrage
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:43 PM) We got nothing to talk about
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 09:43 AM) HIRE MR JET
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:17 AM) There are some good OGs available in FA, we have to sign one
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Willie Colon was rated as one of the worst in football last season. So was Winters. Oday shows promise
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Orlando Franklin, Mike Iupati, Clint Boling. Should sign one
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 12:34 PM) Franklin or Iupati would be great
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:46 PM) hey reg how did you make out in this storm?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:47 PM) we got slammed with snow but the wind didn't knock out our power so I made out pretty unscathed here in RI
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:14 PM) What sucks is that the NFL isn't going to throw the book at those CHEATS even though they may be found GUILTY
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 PM) This place is a GHOST TOWN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:24 AM) Nothing really to talk about in the offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:20 PM) Rex bashed Idzik in a interview today lol
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:21 PM) Says Woody didn't want to fire him but had to because of 4 wins. That Idzik had hidden agendas and a plan that never worked.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:26 PM) I expect FA is going to be busy for us, I think public pressure forces them to make a splash because Maccagnan has to prove hes no Idzik and lose out on most FAs. We also have a lot of holes and could fix some with signings

The Jets figure to make an offer to free-agent safety Jim Leonhard, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. Leonhard played for new Jets coach Rex Ryan last season.In four seasons, Leonhard has split time between Baltimore and Buffalo. He is still young enough that he may not have reached his peak yet, but last season was his best. He had 69 tackles (55 solo) and an interception returned for a touchdown last year. http://www.fantasysp.com/player/nfl/Jim_Leonhard/226543

Elam is way too slow for coverage. They want a pure FS so they can turn Rhodes into a SS to allow him to basically roam the field looking to make a play instead of being deep in coverage. Elam is probably going to end up being a special teams player.

poor guy, i wish there was a way to get him on the field, because he is a playmaker, and has high energy, something lacking on our defense.

He's a liability in coverage. He's a good blitzer so maybe he'll see some playing time in a 46. Then again probably not.

This is a good move. Elam should still see some playing time in certain packages. Smith is a goner.

Its a slight at someone now to be a role player? I think we need more ROLE players. I'm the biggest Elam supporter on the board, was calling for him before everyone else wanted him. But Leonard is much more a complete player.

I'll take the "role player" Leonard in a second so we can swap over Rhodes.

I don't know what the hype is for Leonard. I know he had a good season but how many 1 hit wonders are their in the NFL?.. TONS!!, you know, the guys that have a great year and can't be found the next. Leonard seems like the flavor of the year to me.

Personally I think we need to draft one and there is a damn good one in Missori

Hes a little guy with a big heart. He is pretty fast, he was all over the place in the playoffs. I would take him, he won't get much money anyways.

Moore isn't that good from Mizzou. Talented, but I never saw the hype around him

The fact that he's Rex's guy and he wants him here is enough for me.

Im a little iffy on him also. And I like elam, but he is a BIG problem in pass coverage. I do feel like we should resign him though. Good depth player. great blitzer

One guy I would look at in the draft is Rashad Johnson from alabama. Could probably be had in the 2nd round. I dont think he slips to the 3rd.
