New York Jets owner, Woody Johnson, named US ambassador to the UK
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 : (17 January 2017 - 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) :saythat:
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:13 AM) :trink39:
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 January 2017 - 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 : (18 January 2017 - 04:33 PM) Jets hire Dennard Wilson as defensive backs coach

Peter Boyle Died

Peter Boyle, who left the life of a monk to study acting and went on to become one of the most successful character actors of his time in films like “The Candidate,” “Young Frankenstein” and “Monster’s Ball,” then capped his career with a long stint as the meddlesome father on the hit sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond,” died Tuesday evening in Manhattan. He was 71.

His death, at New York Presbyterian Hospital, was announced by his publicist, Jennifer Plante. She said Mr. Boyle had suffered from multiple myeloma and heart disease. With his bulky frame and balding pate, Mr. Boyle was a formidable presence on screen, whether playing a drunken redneck (“Joe”), a corrupt union leader (“F.I.S.T.”) or a savvy private eye (“Hammett”). He could be convincingly chilling, so much so that he often ran the risk of being typecast. When he appeared with Peter Falk and Paul Sorvino in William Friedkin’s 1978 film “The Brink’s Job,” as a member of the gang that robs an armored car company of nearly $3 million, the New York Times critic Vincent Canby wrote that “Mr. Boyle’s role is one that he could telephone in by this time.”

But it wasn’t all thugs and gangsters. In 1974, Mr. Boyle made a memorable impression in Mel Brooks’s “Young Frankenstein,” in which he played the bumbling monster brought to life by the addled grandson (Gene Wilder) of the original Dr. Frankenstein. In one high point, Mr. Boyle’s monster, decked out in white tie and tails à la Fred Astaire, performed a nifty soft-shoe routine with Mr. Wilder while bellowing out the lyrics of “Puttin’ On the Ritz.”

Mr. Boyle, who once admitted to being “a little nutty,” enjoyed his infrequent ventures into film comedy. In “Where the Buffalo Roam” (1980), a screen portrait of the freewheeling writer Hunter S. Thompson (Bill Murray), he went happily wild as the writer’s carousing companion. Along with members of the Monty Python troupe, he was part of a zany pirate crew in “Yellowbeard” (1983). And in “The Dream Team” (1989), he tried to wring laughs from his role as a mental patient with a fixation on Jesus.

His breakthrough, however, was no laughing matter. He won the title role in the 1970 film “Joe,” about a hard-drinking, hate-filled factory worker who improbably joins forces with a murderous executive in a bloody war on “hippies” and the rest of the counterculture. Mr. Boyle said that he was paid only $3,000 for his work in “Joe” but that he realized he had taken a giant step forward. The role, he said at the time, seemed to have been made for him because he’d grown up surrounded by people like Joe.

“I knew the character so well that when it came to the actual shooting of the movie, I was worried that I would do a caricature,” “ he said. Writing in The Times, Mr. Canby called “Joe” one of the 10 worst films of the year but hailed Mr. Boyle’s performance as “extraordinary.”

Peter Boyle was born on Oct. 18, 1935, in Northtown, Pa. After graduating from La Salle College, he became a member of the Christian Brothers order and entered a monastery as Brother Francis. He later recalled praying “so hard, I had calluses on my knees.” After three effortful years, he left the monastery — he later called it “an unnatural way to live” — and, after a brief period in the Navy that ended in a nervous breakdown, came to New York City to try the life of an actor.

There, he studied with Uta Hagen, worked at whatever jobs he could find, toured with a road company of Neil Simon’s “Odd Couple” and wound up in Chicago, where he joined the Second City troupe and immersed himself in improvisational theater. He was living in Chicago at the time of the Democratic National Convention in 1968 and never forgot the ensuing explosion of violence and the reek of tear gas in the streets. Early on, he described himself as a “conservative radical.”

Politics was an element in some of his work in the years ahead, although more often on television than in film. An exception was “The Candidate” (1972), the film in which he played a cool-headed campaign manager for a liberal Democrat (Robert Redford) running for the Senate. In the 1977 NBC movie “Tail Gunner Joe,” he portrayed Senator Joseph R. McCarthy, with Burgess Meredith as the Boston lawyer Joseph Welch in the notorious Army-McCarthy hearings.

Mr. Boyle relived his 1968 experience in Chicago on HBO’s “Conspiracy: The Trial of the Chicago Eight” (1987), appearing as one of the jailed political protesters, David Dellinger. And in the 1989 CBS docudrama “Guts and Glory: The Rise and Fall of Oliver North,” he played Vice Admiral John M. Poindexter, a national security adviser.

Despite his early theatrical training, Mr. Boyle clearly preferred film and television over stage work. He was seen on Broadway in 1980 in “The Roast,” directed by Carl Reiner, in which he played a comedian who is the guest of honor, with lots to hide, at a no-holds-barred “roast,” or stag dinner, given by his fellow comics. Off Broadway later that year, he co-starred with Tommy Lee Jones in a Public Theater production of Sam Shepard’s “True West,” about the warring relationship of two brothers. He also appeared at the Circle Repertory in 1982 in the ill-conceived “Snow Orchid,” a play by Joe Pintauro in which he played the mentally unstable head of a dysfunctional family in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.

In his private life, Mr. Boyle was a functional and devoted family man. He had met Loraine Alterman, his wife-to-be, when he was filming “Young Frankenstein” and she was interviewing Mel Brooks for Rolling Stone magazine. They were married in 1977, with John Lennon as best man at their wedding. She survives him, along with their daughters Lucy and Amy.

Mr. Boyle’s film credits in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s included “Walker” (1987), in which Ed Harris played the American adventurer William Walker, who briefly seized control of Nicaragua in the mid-19th century; Mr. Boyle played his supporter Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt. In “Bulletproof Heart” (1995), Mr. Boyle was cast as a professional hitman. In “Monster’s Ball” (2001), he gave an acclaimed performance as the bigoted father of a prison death-house guard (Billy Bob Thornton).

Mr. Boyle was also becoming a familiar face on television, appearing in several episodes of ABC’s “NYPD Blue” and winning an Emmy Award in 1996 for a guest appearance on the long-running Fox series “The X-Files.” That was also the year Mr. Boyle became a member of the Barone family on the durable CBS sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond.”

The series starred the comedian Ray Romano as Ray Barone, a sportswriter whose parents (played by Mr. Boyle and Doris Roberts) are all too willing to complicate daily life in Ray’s suburban household. As the grouchy, wisecracking Frank Barone, Mr. Boyle could be counted on to win laughs, as he did for nine seasons. The role brought him five Emmy nominations.

Mr. Boyle suffered a stroke in 1990 and had a heart attack while taping an episode of “Raymond” in 1999, but he quickly recovered and continued his career, pursuing what he called his challenge on “Raymond” — “finding where the funny is.”
