Jets hire Maccagnan as GM and Bowles as HC. Who's starting the billboard fundraiser?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:05 PM) Im getting it for a friend
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:13 PM) SIGN WILL HILL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) There are some decent FAs I hope we go after, we have like $48 mil in cap space, plus more once we get rid of Chris Johnson and Calvin Pace.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) Lol for someone who doesn't like me and doesn't pay attention to what I have to say, GG sure loves talking about me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 PM) We just need a QB to throw to them
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:25 PM) if we release Harvin, we won't get him back most likely. Hes the most dynamic offensive player we have had in a while.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) Plus he has no guaranteed money so we can release him at any time for no cap hits. Maybe they can rework his contract, but I hope we keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) I think he does restructure though, can't imagine Brick wanting to play elsewhere. I see him as a career Jet
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) I think that Oday would be fine as a starter for one spot, he showed promise. Plus it would be a competition between Oday, Winters, and Dozier.
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Today, 12:31 PM) Iupati would be a great signing. If Harvin doesn't restructure I would not be opposed to cutting him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:47 PM) See this is why you can't be taken seriously harlem
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:47 PM) Orlando Franklin is a FLAG machine
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:48 PM) he'd just be our 2014 version of Colon
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:48 PM) HELL NO TO ORLANDO
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 02:42 PM) Still paying attention to what I say, huh?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 02:43 PM) You are the wind beneath my wiiiiiiiings
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 02:46 PM) 0099 said he'd be happy with Franklin too, but you only bitch about when I said it. Seems legit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 03:12 PM) it is legit cause you're wasting bandwith with that bullsh*t
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 05:43 PM) Wasting bandwidth saying I want a certain player when someone else said they wanted the exact same player?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 05:43 PM) How much activity was my one sentence really cluttering lol
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 05:44 PM) Like I said GG I still love you

NFL Europe is a farm system for talent that doesnt make the NFL out of college and for international athletes to try to break into the NFL. The NFL is a on a different level. They wouldn't compete against NFL teams

He'd make up a fake media pass and go into the Barcelona Flabberjabits or the Prague Pussywhippers locker room and stare in amazement at Smith while he was taking a shower

It's the NFL's version of MLB's Minor League. Just like stated, it's a farm to essentially try and raise talent that just isn't at NFL level yet.

Nah. Its a minor league system really. Now if they were to make thier own leagues and started developing players and such, THEN they could make a serious run and we could quite possible see football become an olympic sport. But don't bet on either, soccer is too big over there and football would die to fast.

NFL Europe will never be on a par with the NFL and will remain a feeder league. The league has been in decline the last few years with teams in London, Scotland and Barcelona folding over the last decade and only 6 teams remain - 5 in Germany and 1 in Holland. It isn't that popular around Europe and the crowds in Germany and Holland are relatively modest.
It is league where the NFL develops talent and also where European, Asian and Mexican players showcase their skills. However the non-American players find it hard to get into the NFL as they aren't connected to any team. The league has taken a step to get these players into the NFL by allocating I think 8 a season to practice squads around the league and they have to remain on them for the whole season.
Next year a regular season game should be coming to Europe - either in London or Germany which will no doubt raise the profile of the game but it is still very much a minority sport over here. The regular season game will definitely sell out but interest in the game won't propel the sport to a level where millions of kids start playing it and the only way NFLE becomes on a par with the NFL is if millions of kids take it up.

Teams send over mainly 5th to 7th round picks, practice squad guys and street FAs that went undrafted the previous year (training camp fodder basically). Last year the biggest name to go over was Drew Henson but he had played less football in the pros than Smith.

IMO it can be a useful tool and I'd like to see more Jets sent over as in the past KC have had guys come back from NFLE and be successful in the pros such as Dante Hall. It has been a good place in the past to develop OLine talent too.

NFLE is a 10 game season therefore the chances of injury are great and it would also mean he wouldn't be in proper shape for training camp due to the wear and tear he would suffer.
