azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:44 PM) Who knows though
santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) http://gfycat.com/Mi...idHookersealion
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 : (Yesterday, 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (Today, 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:59 PM) The JETS are #6 in the Forbes List for most franchise value
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:59 PM) The Buffalo Jills are #31 and the Miami Dolphags are #16 respectively
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:00 PM) The JETS are worth $1.8 billion

Hey Guys... My name is Gary Estwick. I'm a sports reporter for The Tennessean, covering the Titans in Nashville. I'm working on a story for Thursday's newspaper about Brett Farve and what he's meant this season to the Jets.

I'd love to chat with a few of you guys today. If interested, shoot me an e-mail at gestwick@tennessean.com.

Thanks for your help...

This is what I sent to him in an email.I put some time and thought into it.I hope everyone is ok with what I wrote.

Nice to hear from you Gary.

Just to let you know we have no rivalry with the Titans so we really have no ill feelings toward the Titans. Us Jets fans respect what the offensive line of the Titans has been able to do. Them not allowing sacks is great and I am sure it makes Collins feel very comfortable in the pocket and has definitely been a big reason for his success.
However we also feel that the Jets have a very legitimate chance to get sacks in the upcoming because letís face it the Titans have not faced a team with as many sacks in the year as the Jets. We may respect the Titans but we love our Jets and we want a win. We expect the game Sunday to be very good but we do think the Jets have a big chance of getting a win.
The Titans have a pretty hard end of schedule. The Jets do also. We feel that if the Jets can chalk up a win Sunday that the Jets have a very good chance of catching Tennessee for the number one seed.

Anyway Jets fans are very passionate about our team. We have to be because let`s face it Ö..it is hard being Jets fans with so many almost and so many disappointments over the years. We are very loyal though and especially on nyjetsfan.com. We blog all year about our Jets.
Basically fans here had mixed feelings on Favre coming here. His age and interception total had a lot to do with it.
Plus a lot of fans had a hard time letting Pennington go. Chad had a problem with velocity on his throws that tended to kill the Jets a lot and it was hard to come back from deficits with him but he was the ultimate competitor and he gave his body for the game so Jets fans loved him. It took us a long time but finally last year little by little we started to realize it was always going to be up and down games and seasons with him and he was never going to get the Jets to the big game.
As far as this year is going. We feel great after last year`s 4-12 season. The Jets have weaknesses but more and more each week the team is becoming a lot more solid. The first half of the year the team had some serious offensive line issues. This was getting Favre hit a hell of a lot. Jones was getting stuffed most of the time also. Favre being the competitor that he is would try to make plays on his own and threw the ball a lot while scrambling. Some great plays happened but also a lot of interceptions were racked up. Some fans were blaming Favre and some were blaming Jones and some were blaming the line. I myself blamed the line.
The last four games the offensive line seems to have been gelling and has become really solid. Favre is playing very well and interceptions are down. Jones is also running very well. Some of us still have some issues with Jones not being able to break open field tackles but we all respect that he is tearing it up on the field and as put up very good numbers for the year as a whole. Right now Jets fans are really happy and optimistic. We are however still guarded because we are used to let downs with this team.
What Favre means to us as Jets fans is finally we have a great HOF quarterback again. There have been some good quaterbacks on the Jets and some bad and some decent ones that have had good years here. But since the days of the great Joe Willie Nameth we have not been treated to a quarterback that has been truly great and it is actually a weird feeling. We donít know how to take it. Even in the short time he has been here we have seen the Favre magic many times. Favre has made some jaw dropping plays. Jets fans really love him here. I donít think any team in the league wouldnít want him on their team.
We feel that with the General that Favre is and the way this team is playing we may finally have a chance to see this team in the big game again. We are basically stoked.
Our only fear is that Favre won`t play next year. We realize it is near the end but we are hoping he will stay here at least two or three years. We donít know what we have in Clemens and Ratliff and we really donít want to find out unless we have to.
Anyway thanks for talking to us

"There is something special about him that makes me believe that he can do anything, no matter how bad he plays in any given game," said Michael Tomaselli, 23, who follows the Jets from Houston. "He may throw three picks in a game but if it all comes down to one last drive, he can do it."

I'm famous now. woot.
