Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:41 PM) he won't survive the season if he doesnt figure it out

santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:50 PM) yeah i saw that he was at real sociedad

MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:37 PM) SUCK FOR TEH DUCK
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:50 PM) The JETS really sucked a fat one last night
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:34 PM) Man the JETS are a 3 ring circus or American Horror Story: FREAK SHOW!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:45 AM) Jets starting Geno again.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:45 AM) FIRE IDZIK,
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:45 AM) I really hope the JEts completely clean house this offseason and get rid of everyone, it's time.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:54 AM) We need to keep getting embarrassed every week to ensure that. That is why I don't give a shit about getting destroyed, it makes the team look like more of a joke and forces Woody to make real changes
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:55 AM) Like how do you get blown out by a team that didn't practice while you had 2 weeks to prepare?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:55 AM) That kind of stuff may force Woody to make the big changes and fire everyone
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:55 AM) John Idzik has handled the QB situation terribly. 2 times he pretty much handed the job to his draft pick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:56 AM) Besides Sheldon Richardson, his drafts have been awful.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:57 AM) Maybe Woody will clean house and go all out for Jim Harbaugh, that probably won't happen though but it would be a franchise changer.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:07 AM) Harbaugh would be amazing...but because it makes sense it won't be done
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:51 AM) According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets blocked coach Rex Ryan from talking to Mehta about a bye-week visit to his ailing father, legendary NFL defensive guru Buddy Ryan. Buddy, who rose to prominence as defensive coordinator of the ’85 Bears and then coached the Eagles and Cardinals, is battling cancer.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:52 AM) Mehta interprets the muzzling of Rex Ryan as proof positive that, once the season ends, Ryan will no longer be the team’s head coach. Apparently, the team fears that Rex would become more sympathetic in the eyes of the fan base if he’s dumped by the team at a time when his father is fighting a serious illness.
santana Icon : (Today, 11:05 AM) Mehta is an idiot
santana Icon : (Today, 11:25 AM) If colt McCoy lights it up do the jets make a move?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 11:27 AM) I don't even care what they do for a while
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 11:28 AM) The team is a catastrophe
santana Icon : (Today, 11:29 AM) I didn't see the game
santana Icon : (Today, 11:29 AM) I remember the first bills game though I'm guessing it was like that with more sleeping in the end zone

Okoye Weighs In At 6'2 287

SENIOR BOWL WEIGH INS: Just talked to one of my contacts at the Senior Bowl and he was there for the weigh ins for the North team roster. Among the more impressive looking players was Louisville DT Amobi Okoye. Checking in at 6'2" 287 he's likely more of a three-technique tackle than a nose tackle, but he's apparently built like a rock. Plus he's just 19 years old, so I'm going to guess he could fill out some more as he gets older.

Among the other North players who passed the eyeball test were Penn State LB Paul Pozluszny and RB Tony Hunt. Hunt was over 6'1" and a solidly put together 239. Pozluszny meanwhile has added muscle and checked in at 237. Wake Forest S Josh Gattis, Syracuse CB Tanard Jackson, Pitt LB H.B. Blades, Nebraska LB Stewart Bradley and DE Jay Moore, Michigan LB Prescott Burgess, Fresno St. CB Marcus McCauley were among the most fit looking players.


Once Okoye dropped the weight he became a dominator, he is no NT.

It does mean something. He was 320 before the college season I'm pretty sure and he's dropped 40lbs. That's crazy. It's obvious he want's to get DT or DE money.

He was probly never as high as 320, they list people bigger than they are all the time. Either way he is not the answer at NT.

The highest I seen Okoye weight is 317. Ferguson dropped like 30 pounds during the season, he weighed in at 313 then went to under 290.
Okoy probaly just dropped some weight, but he will be best served to gain some weight, because he is a natural NT. The way he plays is by taking blockers on and not being pushed. He is a NT, he would be the NT for the 4-3 also.

Right, and when Brick lost that weight he started getting thrown around like a rag doll. Okoye is young, so he will put on weight as he gets older, but if he can't keep weight on during the season that is absolutely a cause for concern.

Alot of people have trouble keeping the weight during the season. Its something alot of the younger players usually have more trouble with. Okoye also could of lost weight to kind of look in better shape to put his draft stock up, Idk.......

Okoye lost the weight during the season, he played most of the season in the 290 area and thats why he was so good this year. With his weight loss he became a lot quicker and looked more natural at that weight. Okoye is not a NT, he is a good penetrator that is also good in the run game. I think a good comparison for him is Anthony McFarland.

Guys...Okoye dropped the weight on purpose because of the role he was playing in the defensive scheme. This isn't new info...we knew this...he can gain the weight if need be. He is a natural space eater and 2 gap defensive linemen...he isn't trying to be something else.

Yea its been like that for the last 2 to 3 years that I can remember, but this year everything is going over to NFL network, which is gay because College football isnt NFL technically..... Plus Cable is being gay and wont get NFL Network. NFL network, stole the Rutgers game too....... I couldnt get to see them play in the bowl game because of that shit..

Thats what I thought, all of his scouting reports say he is a good fit for a 3-4 NT.
