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 : (19 August 2014 - 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 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 : (19 August 2014 - 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 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 : (19 August 2014 - 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 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 : (19 August 2014 - 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 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 : (19 August 2014 - 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 : (19 August 2014 - 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 : (19 August 2014 - 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 : (19 August 2014 - 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 : (19 August 2014 - 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 : (19 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 PM) The JETS are #6 in the Forbes List for most franchise value
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 PM) The Buffalo Jills are #31 and the Miami Dolphags are #16 respectively
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 PM) The JETS are worth $1.8 billion
jet-man Icon : (Yesterday, 10:03 PM) that's less than the clippers
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 01:07 PM) I'm very excited with the amount of preseason touchdowns the Jets have

Yeah, but in my opinion I think Sony makes better video games. But, that is my opinion, and your entitled to your own as well.

They made Age of Empires. They published RON. They made Age of Kings. They made the NFL Fever and NBA Inside Drive series. What's next? They made Age of Mythology. Now you think Microsoft don't make good games?

Um... we have been over this before, so I am not gonna give you any games from Sony. I mentioned some in the past, I do not need to bother saying them now.

I never said MS doesn’t make good games I said neither of them make a lot of games. They might publish them but their not the actual makers of them. But to make it short and end it I’m not loyal to any of them. I work for my money and can give 2 craps about either company. I just want the most for my money and the best machine with the best games. And I was a “sony lover” as u call it. have both playstations until I bought a GC and an xbox. Then seen the xbox was far superior. If the PS3 turns out to be better with better games then I’ll buy one and say how great it is. I don’t take sides with their company. If sony and MS aint paying my rent then why should I support their company?

im gonna get PS3 just for the next grand theft auto. i dont play halo, but ive heard good things about it. however, i dont see how any game ever made could be better than grand theft auto san andreas. from the amazing storyline to the killing that makes it GTA to the hundreds of side things to do, to the difficulty that they got right on target (difficult enough but not impossible). its amazing

Classic games like Mario > all

GTA > Halo

GTA = Madden > Halo

There shouldn't be any arguments about loyalty to video games...that's ridiculous. I prefer Xbox but PS2 is just as good. It is upsetting that a system that costs less than a hundred dollars to produce is priced at two hundred and ninety nine dollars.

It is better to destroy than create what is meaningless, so the picture will not be finished.

actually on the new xbox MS is taking a hit. they cost more to produce then they are selling for. the processors alone are 400 dollars. the first xbox was probably about 200 to produce

not true.....im not familiar with the costs of processors or any of that, but i do know that a company will not make a product that they lose money on. never. its one thing if theyve been making it for a while, prices for parts went up, then they started losing money, but even in that case, they would stop production. if microsoft is going to lose moeny on the new xbox, they will not make it, especially if it hasnt even been released yet.

Xbox 360 will only succede b/c it comes out first. It's not going to be nearly as powerful as PS3 because of no other reason then logic... it comes out before it. technology always improves as per Moore's rule. Also the price is ridiculous. 300 for an inferior system and 400 for the one every will want. the stripped down version does not have a wireless controller nor a HD. if you were to buy everything that the 400 dollar version has the price would be around 450-500. that's unfair because there's really no reason to have the stripped down version. But there's no way I pay 400 dollars for any video game system and I consider myself a hardcore gamer. I'll wait for the price to go down thank you very much.

The PS3 will fail becuase it will come out at least a year after Xbox 360 and should cost anywhere from 400- 600 dollars. Don't believe me? Fine, but I'm telling you Sony is insane with this thing. It's so powerful that not one single person can afford it without putting it on a payment plan. I think sony might be throwing around ideas on payment plans of their own for gamers to use to buy this monstrosity.

And there's Revolution. Not muc can be said about it except TBA. not much is known and expectations are becoming unrealistic. But it promised to cost anywhere from 150-200 dollars so if you ask me this will sell better then most people give it a chanc to. With all this HD stuff and incredible power being used, price seems to be thrown to the wayside. MEanwhile nintendo promises great gameplay, as usual, and an affordible, small, sleek, quite, wifi out of the box machine. Those are things the other companies can't garuntee.

I dont know what will happen in the next year or so but I do know that I wont buy anything I think is overpriced and especially if I'm swamped in school work in year 2 at PSU.
I changed my name, but I dont remember what it was... if anyone remembers please let me know.
