azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:52 AM) He is a good QB and I would love to have him. However IMO our 6 is not good value for us. Not to mention if he hates the idea of LA what is he going to think of NY? Contract situation would have to be worked out prior to trade as well. Extreme long shot to land Rivers. My money says we are more likely to land Brees.
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:53 AM) which is still a very long shot
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:46 AM) he may just hate ownership. LT's comments yesterday was interesting.
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) “I personally don’t think so,” Tomlinson said. “I really think this is a situation where Philip Rivers wants to move on. The reason why I think that and the reason why I feel like that is the Chargers have already approached Philip about doing another contract and he declined it. He doesn’t want anything to do with it; he didn’t even want to talk about another contract with the San Diego Chargers. That tells me that he’s thinking about moving on.”

“You never want to trade your franchise quarterback,” Tomlinson said, “that’s never the case. However, in this situation they might have no choice but to do so because I don’t know if Philip [Rivers] wants to be there anymore. I think he’s lost confidence in the organization. He’s seeing a lot of changes going on and the L.A. thing is valid; him not wanting to go to L.A., that is very valid, I can see that. So no, it doesn’t make sense to move on from Philip because he’s a franchise quarterback and he still has three to four very good years left.”
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) missed the LA line. nvm. guess that is a legit concern.
Mr_Jet Icon : (21 April 2015 - 03:57 PM) He doesn't want to play for a franchise based in Los Angeles, but he'd be okay with playing for one based in New York City?
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 04:28 PM) That's the point we have all been making.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:05 PM) Jets vs colts Monday night week2
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:09 PM) Jets open at home against the browns
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6

They're pretty much the same just with college players. I'm more of a NBA fan so I get NBA instead.

I haven't gotten any of the basketball games this year, although I think 2k7 is the better game of the two, and it's also the only sport game i'd buy with 2k over EA.

NBA Live 08: Go-To Basketball
EA revitalizes Live with four new features that let you play like an NBA superstar.
by Hilary Goldstein
June 21, 2007 - NBA Live has been in the crapper for the past few years. That is not up for debate. But the once proud series is hoping to make a miraculous comeback. Having never been much of a fan of EA's NBA series, I'll admit that I had little faith that Live could resurrect itself; it looks like I was wrong. With a new dedication to creating a true sim basketball -- and actually making it a challenge to drive to the hoop -- NBA Live 08 looks to be the start of a new era for EA hoops.

EA Canada's initiative for Live 08 is creating "Go-To Basketball." Every team has a go-to guy and the superstars have go-to moves that they rely on to create scoring opportunities. Getting the ball to the right player when he's in the right spot on the floor, with the best match up, is going to be key to racking up points this year. You can try to play Live like an arcade dunkfest, but you will likely end up with your ass planted on the parquet. You'll need to play smart with 08 and to your players' abilities. If not, expect the route to be on -- but not in your favor.

Live introduces four new features that bring the Go-To experience to the court:

Signature Go-To Moves: Beyond last year's Signature Shots, Live 08 recreates the tried-and-true moves of the NBA's greatest players.


Quick-Strike Ball Handling: Freestyle moves are gone, replaced with a deeper system of dribble moves and defensive counters.


Own the Paint: The post game has been completely remade and turned into a shot/countershot battle for positioning where size truly does matter.


Hot Zones: The standard three shooting zones (close, medium, 3-pt) have been broken up further into left, center, and right sections. Bruce Bowen loves shooting treys from the corners, but put him at the top of the arc and he's likely to brick.

Over the next few weeks, IGN will break down each element of Go-To Basketball. It may sound like a marketing buzzword, but take it from a longtime NBA 2K fan: Live 08 is the real deal.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go-To Moves

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Close your eyes and picture Kobe Bryant. There's only four seconds left on the shot clock. Kobe's eight feet out, back to the basket. Raja Bell is draped over Kobe, keeping him from driving to the hoop. What does Kobe do? If you've watched much basketball, you already know. He turns 180 and pulls up for a fadeaway jumper, his right leg kicking out as he pushes back. That's Kobe's go-to move. He does it all the time.

Now imagine the rest of the NBA's top players using their own Go-To Moves. There's no special button to press, no "power meter" to fill, no gimmicks. NBA Live 08 is about contextual moves. So when in a similar situation in Live 08, you can expect Kobe to pull that fadeaway, because that's who he is. That's how he plays.



The same can be expected from Dwayne Wade. He'll do his trademark hop-step jumper. Mav's fans can rest assured that Dirk's jumper is identical to the real thing. It even clanks off iron in pressure situations.

The Signature Go-To Moves aren't limited to jump shots. Dwight Howard has multiple power jams recreated with such care that you'll swear you're watching a Sportscenter highlight. Slip Tony Parker through a tight gap in the lane and he'll do his little flick runner. The only thing EA Canada didn't have time to add was the obligatory camera cut to Eva Longoria cheering on the sidelines. But hey, they have to save something for Live 09.

But what about Kidd or Nash, guys known for their fancy passing more than their sweet jump shots and dunks? A few Go-To passes are also in the game. And again, it's all contextual. The type of shot you take or pass you make is dependent on the ball handler and their position on the floor.

EA has been working on collecting Go-To moves for the past several years and decided it was time to finally put it in Live. The care taken with these moves can be seen in Practice Mode. Take D-Wade on the court and you can see a picture-in-picture NBA video of his moves in action while you practice. We tried to see AI's Go-To moves, but he didn't show up for practice.

Of course, ballers are made in big games, not in shootarounds. Whether it's in the paint, the top of the key or behind the arc, the superstars look and act like their real-life counterparts. Still, it's up to you to find the sweet spots on the floor and take advantage of defensive mismatches. Kobe may shoot like Kobe, but it won't matter much if you don't find ways to get him some spacing on the floor.

Signature Go-To Moves is just one of four pieces expected to breathe new life into EA's hoops game. We'll explore the other three pieces in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
