SackExchange71 Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:31 PM) Imo i still think howard is better then giacomini..Wish they never let him walk.Giacomini had alot of flags in seattle also
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:33 AM) Howard recieved a huge contract in Oakland. Way over his actual value.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 10:08 AM) So did we make a trade for a CB yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:51 PM) Milliner did suffer a high ankle sprain, that sucks. could linger all year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:52 PM) I think Patterson sucked vs the Colts because he was injured, which he always is.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:49 PM) As much as people criticized Tannanbaum for spending too much. It's starting to look like Idzik is going to be too cheap.
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 : (Yesterday, 01:07 PM) I'm very excited with the amount of preseason touchdowns the Jets have
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:21 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:22 PM) Calvin Pryor and Darrin Walls will start tomorrow
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) The SIMPSONS MARATHON has been on for almost 12 hours...
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 PM) Sanchez looks so much more confident and better in Chip's offense than he did with us

I'd take him, depending on cash. If he'll come back here for a cheap price, I would welcome him back, otherwise no thanks if he's expensive.

Im not so sure, because he has been injury prone lately, and I guess if Thomas Jones hits the UFA, and if we can land Turner, I rather have both of them then Jordan.
Though, if we had Jordan we would have a pretty good 1-2 punch with Washington and Jordan, and believe me, w/e we do in the offseason on getting a RB, this offense is still going to use Washington, he is too good of a back not to use. He is the homerun threat that we havent had in a while, the type of guy that makes gamechangeing plays, like with that 60 yard screen pass, and also that 40 yard one against the Bills that got our offense going. Leon Washington is a Gamebreaker!!

We should at least consider it, especially if he wants to come back.

id definitely take him...the power back to go with washington. we'd have a great inside/outside combo. i dont think his price would be too high since he hasnt really done much in oakland, due to injury and a pretty bad supporting cast. (offensive line, cant pass so opponents stack the box against the run etc.) he's also still 28 with almost no mileage on him. getting him would open up our options in a huge way come draft time.

Yeah, why a team would cut a 28 year old is beyond me. Especially when he's not the problem for the team. They need offensive lineman, and a quarterback which they should be getting with their first pick. This franchise really has gotten stupid since making it to the superbowl that one year.

If Leon Washington was the #1 all year long, he would have rushed for 1,000 +yds. I'd like to see him do it all year long. We could just draft a bruiser in the middle rounds to compliment him. Tangini said they wan't to build this team through the draft, and RB is a very important position obviously, so I think they do it through the draft. No Lamont return.

yea if washington had started the whole year he may have got 1000 yards but it is also hard to say that he actually could carry the load. he has shared his carries almost his whole carrer...I dont think he can rush for 325+ times a year. that being said Id love to have lamont back . Jordan is a good back and rushed for 1000 with that awful line. Bring him back here with a better line and a better offense and id say he would be a very good back. Him and leon would be excellent. Although he has been injury prone a little i think its stupid for the raiders to cut him because like somone above me said...He is not the problem. Its hard to rush for yardage when no one is afraid of your pass and your O-line is awful....He is a good back and if the price is right id look into it...

Yea I would definitely be stoked to see Lamont back in Green and White, but for some reason I just don't think Tangini will do it. I think Anthony Clement is a goner and the high profile player they grab will be a right tackle.

The Bears aren't going to release Jones and if they want to get rid of him they will trade him, which would cost us at least a 1st rounder. Turner will require a 1st to get too so IMO he's out of the picture.
Jordan wouldn't be a bad option but an equal talent could be found in the first two rounds such as Michael Bush and is a younger, cheaper alternative than Jordan.

for this reason doesnt leonard look like the best option. Let leon do a big portion of the work with leonard spelling him, blocking for him, and seeing a ton of redzone action...

FINALLY!!!! A REAL BIG BOY!!!

Jordan is too injury proned and wouldn't be worth the asking price. He has had injuries in each season, even as a backup for us. Give me Turner and I will be very happy.

lamont is just way oeverated, when he was with the jets he got a lot of credit running behind curtis but i doubt he'll be as productive running behind leon.

I could be wrong, but I thought Jones was an UFA this offseason. Even if he wasn't, he wouldn't cost a first rounder. Probably more like a second or third, depending on how eager they are to get rid of him. And I agree that Turner isn't worth a first rounder. I'm not one who really thinks the Jets need a RB early, but I wouldn't mind Michael Bush. He is huge and would be a perfect compliment to Leon.

Thomas Jones could be a UFA, he has a option in his deal, if the Bears want him for another season and he wants to be there then they can go through with the option that will make him a Bear for one more year. Otherwise he could hit the UFA, alot of people think that the Bears may want to just let him go so they can really start running Benson more, and make him the feature back there.

Jones was the better back all season and he has proved more than Michael Turner in the league so if the Chargers get a 1st for him then that sets Jones' value slightly higher IMO although you can't go much migher than a 1st crazy.gif . Even though they have Benson why would they want to get rid of him anyway? It's a similar situation in NO with two highly paid backs and I don't see McAllister or Bush leaving any time soon. A lot of teams are shifting towards having two RBs who share the load and him and Benson were a successful tandem so why should they break it up?
Jones has outplayed Benson so far and got the Bears into the playoffs the past two seasons as the starting RB. Despite having a lot invested in Benson why should they go for him when it has been proven to them that Jones is the better back of the two right now?
I'd rather get a guy like Michael Bush though: younger and cheaper although a bit less talented but at least we won't pay over the odds for him.
