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

36 Jim Leonhard SS/PR
43 Haruki Nakamura FS

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

Subject: RE: [BULK] FW: where to buy your gas



I went to put gas at United Super Mkt. because they are Conoco and I asked the lady if it was true they do not import from Saudi and she said Conoco is American gas.

Pass it on.





This makes sense. We can make a difference.





WHERE TO BUY YOUR GAS,

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW.




Why didn't our government think of this?


Gas rationing in the 80's worked

even though we grumbled about it.


It might even be good for us!



The Saudis are boycotting American goods.

We should return the favor.


An interesting thought it to boycott their GAS.

Every time you fill up the car, you can avoid putting more money into the coffers of Saudi Arabia. Just buy from gas companies that don't import their oil from the Saudis.

Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I fill-up the tank, I am sending my money to people who are trying to kill me, my family, and my friends.

I thought it might be interesting for you to know which oil companies are the best .

to buy gas from and which

major companies import Middle Eastern oil :

Shell 205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco 144,332,000 barrels
Exxon /Mobil 130,082,000 barrels
Marathon/Speedway 117,740,000 barrels
Amoco 62,231,000 barrels

If you do the math at $30/barrel,

these imports amount to over $18 BILLION!



Here are some large companies

that do not import Middle Eastern oil:

Citgo......................0 barrels
Sunoco...................0 barrels
Conoco...................0 barrels
Sinclair....................0 barrels
BP/Phillips..............0 barrels

Hess...................0 barrels

Arco........................0 barrels

All of this information is available from the

Department of Energy

and each is required to state

where they get their oil and how much they are importing.


But to have an impact,

we need to reach literally millions of gas buyers.


It's really simple to do.


Now, don't wimp out at this point...

keep reading and I'll explain

how simple it is to reach millions of people!!





I'm sending this note to about thirty people


If each of you send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers!


If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted!


If it goes one level further, you guessed it .....

THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!



Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people.


How long would all that take?


If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more people within one day, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next eight days!

Those companies using American oil are charging the same prices as companies importing. Considering it is a lot cheaper to use local/domestic/etc of anything than it is to use imported products, I don't have much fondness for the gas companies either way.

gmany3k...i completely agree with you about saudis boycotting our goods, and thats a great idea about boycotting their oil...ill definitly go for it, but take it easy with the reasoning that you're giving money to people that are trying to kill americans. ive been in here a while and everyone is intelligent here so lets not be having that ignorant kind of stuff. a lot of the hijackers were saudis and i hope them and anyone who helped them burn in hell, but we both know that every single saudi is not tryin to kill americans and are theyre all not terrorists.

Well I'll know possibly where to get my gas unless the Chinese go back to riding bikes again but by then Saudi's oil will be almost next to nothing in terms of quanity.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

I think this is a perfect example of everyone forgetting how well we live in the US. SPend a few weeks in a foreign country and try and say the problems we have here are anywhere near these other countries. You can't do it. Sure we have serious problems, but I prefer those problems to some of the problems other countries have.

ellisjersy92 I didn't write the article I just posted it.mainly for the gas issues.ignorant is an over used word because everyone can be ignorant about many different subjects.for instance you where ignorant of my knowledge of terrorism, hijackers and the saudi people vs the saudi gov.I am glad it sparked your interest. biggrin.gif

ive heard that our gas price problem goes back to refining the stuff. the middle east is an endless supply of oil, and supposedly OPEC is pumping out oil at full capacity, but it's difficult/expensive to refine the stuff into what we need. not to mention it's not done in this country, so i have a proposition.....

.....we all band together and form a refining co-op, we can can it.....Refined Jets Fans....i can see it now

of course it would have to be located on my side of the river...(keep the filth in jersey is my motto)

Serious question now... does that go with the currency exchange since the pound is stronger than the dollar? I'm sure it is worse and I try and always be thankful for living in this terrible country... i mean great land that i love... no, it really is great, and that is why i keep the pat tillman #40/jets helmet as my icon, he and so many like him made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and I wish i can one day to something as brave and heroic as that man... but for now i go eat my lean pocket, keep typing on this great site and keep taking the train everywhere i go biggrin.gif
