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 : (Yesterday, 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:12 AM) :saythat:
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:13 AM) :trink39:
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 01:32 PM) 4 years 29 mil 15 mil guarenteed. so 7.25mil a year for winters. a nice bargain. he took a hometown discount. seems like a good guy. well done winters and mac
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 04:33 PM) Jets hire Dennard Wilson as defensive backs coach

What are Trans Fats and are they bad for me?

Do you ever wonder if all fats are bad for you? What are trans fats and how are they different from other types? I found this article by Mark Ransome that describes the differences.

Regulation Of Trans Fats by Author: Mark Ransome

Should we regulate the amount of trans fats contained in the
food we eat? A Canadian government task force on trans fats is
recommending that all vegetable oils and spreadable margarines
have the trans fat content limited to 2% of the total fat
content and all other foods be limited to a maximum of 5% of
total fat content. These new regulations would decrease the
average trans fat intake by at least 55%.

What are trans fats? Fatty acids in foods are made up of
polyunsaturated (like safflower oil, sunflower oil and corn
oil), monounsaturated (like olive oil, peanuts, and avocados),
saturated (like coconut oil, palm oil, butter and cheese) and
trans fats (like margarine and shortening). Saturated and trans
fats are linked to coronary heart disease. The majority of trans
fats are produced by the food industry when it uses a process
called hydrogenation to turn liquid vegetable oils into
semi-solid products. This process hardens and stabilizes the
oils, enhances the flavor and extends the shelf life of food
products. These trans fats also break down less easily which
makes them more suitable for frying. The majority of trans fats
are found in foods made with shortening, margarine or
partially-hydrogenated oils and in baked goods like crackers,
cookies and donuts and in fried foods like french fries and
fried chicken. The trans fat content of some of these foods can
be as high as 45% of the total fat in the food product. Trans
fats also occur naturally at fairly low levels in
ruminant-based foods like dairy products and beef and lamb.

Are trans fats worse than saturated fats? There is a lot of
evidence linking both trans fats and saturated fats to coronary
heart disease. Trans fats appear much more dangerous because
metabolic studies have shown that they increase the blood
levels of our bad cholesterol (LDL) and decrease the levels of
our good cholesterol (HDL). Saturated fats appear less damaging
because they elevate the total cholesterol levels - both bad
(LDL) and good (HDL). The Harvard School of Public Health found
that removing trans fats from the industrial food supply could
prevent tens of thousands of heart attacks and cardiac deaths
each year in the US. The findings are published in the April
13, 2006 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
Government organizations around the world have started to act
to resolve the problem. In 2002, the US National Academies of
Science recommended that trans fat consumption be kept as low
as possible. In 2003 the World Health Organization recommended
that trans fat intake be limited to less than 1% of overall
energy intake. Also in 2003, Denmark set an upper limit on
industrially produced trans fats in foods, limiting them to
just 2% of the total fats in foods. They excluded meat and
dairy products. In 2005 Canada required mandatory labeling of
trans fats in packaged foods. The US followed in 2006 with a
mandatory labeling for any foods containing 0.5 grams or more
of trans fats per serving.

Is mandatory labeling sufficient? Shouldn't we let informed
consumers self-regulate the amount of trans fats they consume?
Once the consumer understands how harmful trans fats are and
that as little as 5 grams per day can lead to heart disease,
then mandatory labeling will force the food industry to reduce
the amounts contained in food products much faster than a bunch
of government regulations, However what about restaurants and
the fast food industry? Here is where the Canadian government
task force recommendations are probably a good thing. Consumers
do not know how much trans fats there are in french fries, deep
fried chicken and baked goods. Therefore we should adopt the
recommendation from the June 27th, 2006 final report of the
Trans Fat Task Force that states - “For all vegetable oils and
soft, spreadable (tub-type) margarines sold to consumers or for
use as an ingredient in the preparation of foods on site by
retailers or food service establishments, the total trans fat
content be limited by regulation to 2% of total fat content.”
This will allow us to eat restaurant and fast food industry
foods with the knowledge that the trans fat content is limited
to 2% or less.
