MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 01:41 PM) Hack should be playing
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 03:39 PM) wooooo5-11
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 04:00 PM) J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) OK so Bill O brien and Sean Payton might get fired according to Fox this morning
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) I would do anything to get one of them as OC
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) texans coach? i doubt he gets fired
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) but he would be ideal if the jets were to flush bowles out

azjetfan Icon : (05 January 2017 - 09:54 PM) Sean Payton will get another HC gig. Obrien would be good.
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:18 PM) Howard from Alabama seems legit. #88 TE
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 : (Yesterday, 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 08:12 AM) :saythat:
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 08:13 AM) :trink39:
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 04:33 PM) Jets hire Dennard Wilson as defensive backs coach
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 04:01 PM) Trump to name Jets' owner Woody Johnson U.K. ambassador
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 06:04 PM) Maybe Woody will take the Jets with him to London . PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Senior Bowl Dish: Game on for Willis, Meriweather

Jan. 28, 2007 Print it

By War Room scouts

MOBILE, Ala. -- Saturday's game day finally arrived at the Senior Bowl, but it wasn't the prettiest sight with cold and rainy conditions in Ladd-Peebles Stadium, which was only half full for the prospects.

The North, led by Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith (completed 5-of-15 passes in the bad weather for 52 yards and a TD) and Penn State running back Tony Hunt (named the game's MVP with 8 carries for 38 yards and a TD), was able to handle the elements much better in shutting out the South, 27-0.

Smith and Hunt got the headline attention in an ugly, lopsided affair, but there were several other players on both squads who stood out in the game to put the stamp on a long week of practice and playing. Here are eight players we put on the spot for the Senior Bowl game, and how they fared in their Mobile finale:

1. Patrick Willis, ILB, Ole Miss. Willis had a solid but unspectacular week in practice, but he raised his game several notches in the game and made plays all over the field. He showed an uncanny ability to find the ball quickly and then move toward it quickly. He also showed the range to make tackles from sideline-to-sideline -- something he didn't show in practice. Once Willis got moving, he had the speed to both make plays against the run and stay with backs and tight ends in tight man-to-man coverage. On the strength of his game-high 11 tackles, he earned South defensive player of the game honors.

2. Brandon Meriweather, S, Miami (Fla.) Meriweather proved himself worthy of high rating and first-round draft status. He read and then reacted well to skinny post routes coming at him by coming up quickly and making violent hits/tackles after balls arrived. He showed how athletic he is by covering a receiver very well in tight man-to-man in the red zone and forcing an incomplete pass. For a safety (6-0, 190) who lacks the ideal height and weight combination for the position, he also was willing to come up and make physical tackles in run support.

3. Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville. Okoye finished up an impressive week of practice with another strong performance in the game. He was consistently quick off the ball and showed his natural athleticism when chasing down plays. He showed he definitely has the quick feet and hands to consistently beat offensive linemen one-on-one. Okoye still is raw in some areas, but he is very talented overall with tremendous upside.

4. Levi Brown, T, Penn State. Brown continued what has been a frustrating week for both him and the scouts evaluating him. He showed he clearly had the athleticism, size (6-3 1/2, 315) and strength necessary to pass-protect against all the defensive ends who saw in Mobile. However, all too often Brown did not use his hands aggressively enough and allowed ends to dictate the pass rush and beat him. Texas end Tim Crowder did the most damage, beating Brown for a number of hits on the quarterback.

5. Aundrae Allison, WR, East Carolina. Although no receiver dominated the game in terms of catches and stats, Allison (2 catches for 22 yards) impressed exactly as he did all week. He ran sharp and precise routes and consistently got a bit of separation from defensive backs. He also showed the ability to twist and adjust when making a nice catch for one of the North's three touchdowns.

6. Jay Moore, DE, Nebraska. After struggling through a tough week of practice, Moore delivered a great game. He consistently pressured the quarterback from wherever he lined up, showing a good closing burst to finish sacks and delivering hard blows. He needed a good game after being outperformed by college teammate Adam Carriker during the week.

7. James Marten, T, Boston College. Marten was one of the week's most pleasant surprises and continued to impress with a great performance in the game. He was not dominant, but he did a good job of pass blocking against two top defensive linemen, Florida's Ray McDonald and Georgia's Quentin Moses. Marten excelled at getting out of his stance and sliding to the corner to cut off the initial edge rush, and then he could tie up his man to keep that man from pressuring the quarterback.

8. Thomas Clayton, RB, Kansas State. There were few running back stats to go around in the game after Hunt and Washington State wide receiver Jason Hill (who went 35 yards on a nice reverse), but despite turning 8 carries into only 17 yards for the North, Clayton showed some good quickness, agility, athleticism and elusiveness. Clayton was added to the North roster on Tuesday after Northern Illinois running back Garrett Wolfe (hamstring) was hurt on the first day of practice, and certainly took advantage of the extra chance to boost his stock.
