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

ok its time to discuss the more finer parts of the league

ill be hosting the league on www.leaguedaddy.com

here is an example of a league http://www.leaguedad...eagues/?lid=268

this will be just like our league, having 10 teams only however (5 in each conference and 3 teams from each conference making the playoffs with the #1 seed with a bye) youll see how the standings, power rankings, stats, leaders, and almost just about anything is on the right. while week by week in the middle the commisioner (me) updates a news story in the middle with pictures and such, simulating just as a real NFL season. When the playoffs begin you will see the brackets.

this website is really in depth and great, ive used it before - some inportant things to know are.

there is a set schedule with due times
every user MUST update their OWN statistics after each game
if you have a problem with a set schedule time, talk to your opponent, reschedule and get back to me.

the catch with this greatness is that there is a price..... and prices range in months of league time - here are the prices

1 Month Subscription - $12.95 USD
3 Month Subscription - $29.95 USD
6 Month Subscription - $54.95 USD
1 Year Subscription - $99.95 USD

within that time frame you can have as many seasons as you wish..... its relatively cheap too if everyone chips in, were looking at around 3 to 10 dollars per gamer.

im thinking the 6 month subscription, around 5 dollars per person. it would be easiest if everyone participating sent me 5 dollars a piece via paypal so i could easily purchase it. i promise all money goes to the league and only to the league. i have a job and 50 dollars is not a big deal to me. the league will be great fun, we just need to get all the money together first. more details to come when all money is collected... PM me if you have any questions, or just reply.

this will be great fun!!

This is ridiculous if you ask me. I'm not to up to par with online leagues but my first question is... If I'm paying out of pocket for an online league do I win anything if I win my league?

My second question is why can't we have an NYJETSFAN football bracket and do it that way?

having a job is no reason to justify throwing away money for tracking a league we could very well operate ourselves. EA Sports does a fine job of maintaining online leagues, and I think it'd be in all of our best interests to just stick with that. the extra stuff does sound cool.. i just don't understand why we can't do it ourselves on the forums.

if you want to do it on the forums thats a great idea also... that was just what ive always done. and if youre not feeling safe with the money we could just have ron make a 3rd party.... it was just an idea, that website is great but i believe it could work on the forum too.

ok ill take care of all the stats, records, brackets, scheduled games, and leaders...... i will do it all. every week ill make an updated post around the league, and ill take care of the big things.....

so lets start this league off right now......

1. Everyone in this league make sure your an XBL friend with everyone else.
2. We will pick teams now.

instructions: everyone PM me with 3 teams you would like to simulate as.... ex.

1. new york jets (most wanted)
2. miami dolphins (2nd option)
3. new england patriots (3rd option)

i will then make note and if 2 people want the same team i will tell those two people (or howevermany) want it and they will decide for themselves. Once everyteam has been picked i will draw the 10 teams and seperate them into conferences, and devise a schedule.

.. i will make a spreadsheet of the teams when everyone has picked which will contain every stat, record, and leaders....

lets get it started

Give us till Madden 08 comes out at least so we can see which teams we play best with. I'm sure we'll all want the Jets, but there's sometimes that random team you're good with. Make the rule now.. No Chargers, No Colts, since everyone is good with them -- and if you use the Falcons.. no dropping back 15 yards, just to scramble around and get the defense to line up and try and chase you while you hit turbo and speed up.

Honestly the chargers are garbage in madden. All they have is Gates and L.T. They have no deep threat. I'm not worried about no got damn Chargers!!!

I think the Colts and Pats are going to be the cheapest team to use in 08.

Anyhow.. If the Jets are taken I'll take the Jags with their shutdown defense and 6'5 WR's... lock it up!!

i dont care who i play against....the colts dont bother me because their D isnt all that great...same with the chargers or any other team...only team i hate to play against is the eagles because of their secondary but i normally play with either the jets or saints...Im in but id think it would be the best idea to just wait about 2 weeks after the game is released so we can all get used to the new features (and the old ones that xbox 360 left out the last 2 years)....

I shut down Vick scramblers all the time. Although it's annoying, you can easily beat one of those guys by big hitting the shit out of him and he'll fumble like everytime. Plus he's always good for an INT or three a game biggrin.gif

Yea I know what you mean, Its funny how many be the Falcons just to scramble with Vick. The rest of the team sucks on that game, when I play with the Falcons I usually run the ball with Dunn, usually people are so worried about containing Vick they dont blitz you and you have a good amount of time in the pocket to hit WRs. Also you can run up the middle with Dunn because the guys go outside to contain vick, and when their done containing him thats when you break a long one with Vick. Every year I play with every team to get a win, because you get some kind of trophy for winning with every team, plus it makes the game interesting. Some reason I never really play with the Jets online, IDK why, I think its because I get so pissed that the roster isnt right so I cant play with them, because I want the roster and depth charts to be exact to the one I watch on TV. Like I couldnt stand that Bryan Thomas was a DE in our 3-4 last year... Hopefully they fix it and get Thomas at OLB and Barton at ILB with Hobson at the other OLB. And then have Coleman at DE with Ellis.
