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 : (20 August 2014 - 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) The JETS are #6 in the Forbes List for most franchise value
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) The Buffalo Jills are #31 and the Miami Dolphags are #16 respectively
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 07:00 PM) The JETS are worth $1.8 billion
jet-man Icon : (20 August 2014 - 10:03 PM) that's less than the clippers
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 01:07 PM) I'm very excited with the amount of preseason touchdowns the Jets have
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 03:21 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 07:22 PM) Calvin Pryor and Darrin Walls will start tomorrow
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 08:52 PM) The SIMPSONS MARATHON has been on for almost 12 hours...
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 08:57 PM) Sanchez looks so much more confident and better in Chip's offense than he did with us
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 August 2014 - 09:50 PM) EVERY SIMPSONS EVER!!!!!
2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:10 AM) Sanchez is looking good for the eagles. Crazy how a good offense and the right system can make you look so much better. When you're put into a situatuon to succeed, magic happens. Happy for Sanchez, i think he needed a change just as much as the Jets did.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:02 AM) Preseason doesn't matter at all
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:10 AM) anyone have a stream for the preseaosn agme by chance?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:06 PM) Don't read to much into Mark in the preseason. He usually looked good in the preseason even in a Jets uniform.. Big difference from regular season where the 1st string defense is playing 100%.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) A lot of 1st stringers are just getting reps in and trying not to get injured. Its only the backups trying to keep or get a job playing hard every down. If preseason qb play meant anything then Matt Simms would be the starting qb of the Jets.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:00 AM) In Geno we trust

Bilberry Fights Night Blindness And Other
Diseases by Sharon Hopkins

Over centuries bilberry has been used for its medicinal
purposes. Similar to blueberries and cranberries, bilberry also
contains anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant qualities. This
fruit is used for its astringent, tonic and antiseptic
properties which can treat various health problems like
diarrhea, dysentery, hemorrhoids and gastrointestinal
inflammation. The most important use for bilberry has been the
treatment of various eye disorders and improvement of capillary
health.

Bilberry has been very effective in improving night vision.
Being a close relative of blueberry, it contains high levels of
natural antioxidant compound. These antioxidants prevent free
radicals from causing any damage to the eye. It also
strengthens the small blood vessels that carry oxygen to the
eyes.

Bilberry is high in flavonoids known as Anthocyanosides, that
quickens the regeneration of Rhodospin, a purple pigment used
as rods in the eye for night vision. It is also useful in
treating macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and
cataract. One study has shown that combination of bilberry
extracts and vitamin E reduces the progression of cataract.

Studies have shown that supplementation with bilberry improves
eye adaptation to darkness for people with <a href="http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=33496&u=143555&m=6374&urllink=&afftrack="" title="poor vision">poor vision. It does
not work with people having good vision though. Bilberry
extracts are known to improve the functional ability of eyes
and other organs. It is also useful in treating bruising,
general subcutaneous bleeding, and easing inflammation that
occurs in osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gum disease.


Bilberry leaves can be used to treat diabetes due to its
hypoglycemic properties. It can be used as a topical treatment
in the form of infusion or decoctions, like tea or liquid
extracts for eyes and mouth inflammation, skin infections and
burns. It is known to treat chronic venous insufficiency,
varicose veins, pain, itching, and skin ulcers in the legs. It
may also prove be effective in treating Raynaud&rsquo;s disease.

It can be useful in treating atherosclerosis as it strengthens
artery walls and promotes good circulation. Eating bilberry
mixed with honey is a popular home remedy for diarrhea. It is
also very effective in curing and treating peptic ulcers,
fibrocystic breast disease and painful menstruation. It is
available in tincture as well as capsule form. And fresh
bilberries are always there to be plucked.

To reduce cataract, macular degeneration and other eye problems
take 80-160 mg of standardized extract or 1/2 teaspoon liquid
extract two or three times a day. For diabetic retinopathy take
80- 160 mg (standardized to 23-37% anthocyanosides) at least
three times a day

To treat varicose veins consume 80-160 mg standardized extract
three times a day.

For sore throat and diarrhea make bilberry tea by pouring 1 cup
hot water in 1 or 2 tablespoons of dried whole berries (or 2 to
3 teaspoons of finely crushed berries). Strain and drink at
least 4 cups a day.

In some individuals consumption of bilberry internally may
interfere with iron absorption. Lactating and pregnant women
should avoid it, completely.
