SECRETS AND LIES NOTHING BUT SECRETS AND LIES!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:44 PM) Throw in Ivory/Powell or a pick
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:45 PM) Damn they got Shady
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:45 PM) Do NOT give up Ivory
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:45 PM) Powell ok Ivory HELL NO
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 March 2015 - 07:50 PM) Well that definitely opens the door for CJ Spiller to the JETS now that the Jills got Shady
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:12 AM) Spiller is a joke. 99 % of the time he gets tackled for a loss or a 1 or 2 yard gain maximum. He breaks a run here and there. he had one good year in his whole career. their is a reason he is a backup and not the starter. I suggest you guys that believe Spiller has anything to offer go through the play by play game logs. I did and he is horrendous.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:14 AM) Spiller cannot break a tackle period. I broke down last years game logs of his runs in a thread last year. He isn't even a pass catching rb. Fred Jackson catches most of the running back passes.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:20 AM) Unless Spiller comes tremendously cheap no thank you. Wouldn't pay more than a one year deal worth 1 million at most. All he has is speed. Not even on Sproles level. His stats are inflated. For instance he has 10 runs in a game and 9 of them are losses are or 1-2 yard runs. Then he breaks one on the outside for 40-70 yards. Not reliable at all. Even when he break one he is guaranteed a td
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:21 AM) Even in his 1200 yard rushing year he only had 6 tds rushing and 2 receiving
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:23 AM) Spiller is only valuable as a special teams player. Period By year 2010 ) tds rshng 1 rcvng 283 yards rshng
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:31 AM) meant 0 tds rushing in 2010, 2011 4 tds 561 yards rushing 2tds receiving, 2012 6tds 1244 rushing 2 tds receiving, 2013 2tds 933 yards rushing 0tds receiving, 2014 0tds 300 yards rushing 1td receiving.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:41 AM) His stats look decent on paper but if you actually go through the game logs of his career like I did his stats are extremely inflated. For instance one game last year he had 10 attempts for 8 yards another 4 attempts for -4 yards, another 6 attempts for 19 yards, another 10 attempts for 25 yards.Another game he had 12 games for 69 yards but 47 of it was on one play. Point is he sucks as a running back. Who wants a rb that gets stopped 99% of the time and breaks one play fir a long run. We need reliable backs not a slim chance of him breaking one

azjetfan Icon : (Today, 12:31 PM) What does his contract look like? Offer a 7th conditional 6th if we do something if the $$s are right.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 12:37 PM) He is almost due 9.6 million this year and has 2 years left. He is defiantly better than Harvin although a little older @ 30
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 12:55 PM) I'd rather sign Maclin or Cobb and then draft a WR early
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:55 PM) I am not real big on Cobb. I think he is a poor mans Harvin. Living in WI I watch most Packer games. He does have talent and he is a good receiver but without Rogers he will not be very good.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:27 PM) looks like David Harris will go to the Bills, and I'm fine with that. Hes getting older and declining.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:56 PM) i guess davis takes the MLB spot then pace on one side. who is on the other? barnes

azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:59 PM) its too early to tell. Our roster is not anywhere near where it will be come opening day.

I don't know why people argue video games with Jetsfan115, I learned that the hard way. He's got to have his way, and he doesn't care for other peoples opinion. He knows it's pointless to keep these type of threads going to bash the Sony systems, but he just still keeps doing it to annoy the hell out of the Sony buyers. So like I said, when it comes to video games, just ignore the guy, if you perfer Sony like I do.

Yeah, so whats your point? You're the only one who cares to annoy the hell out of Sony buyers. You don't see the Sony fans making topics about this exact thing, and thinking it's funny, because I don't care what Microsoft does, they can do whatever the hell they want to do, i'm still buying the PS3 over the 360 in the end.

And you can think what you want, we relize you hate the system that sony puts out. We get the point, you don't have to go out of your way to bash the system, we know what you think of the system, so why do you have to make topic after topic about the Sony system sucking. You don't see any Sony fans on here doing that. I'm glad you don't care, because if you didn't, you wouldn't even respond to this post, but if you do, you obviously still care for what i've got to say.

im saying if you look at exclusive titles PS3 might have 2 that i want Socom and MGS but my 360 does so much more than your ps3, you cant say bluray because i was given the HD dvd player so no win there.

the exclusive titles for 360 go deeper and longer than PS3

ok u wanna go on that route?.. do u have built in wireless?..no Do u get free access to their network?..no..U dont even get a built in dvd player or a standard hdd.. those are all extras that u have to pay for. The failure rate is a fact. plain and simple and microsoft tries to lie about it. Ps3's dont break down like that and also do u even have an hdmi input?..no well unless u spend about the same as a ps3 and get the elite, hell youre 360 cant even use a bluetooth headset..lol so cmon now what can ur 360 do that the ps3 cant?..there are like 3 or 4 exclusives for the 360 that are gears and gaylo and mass effect.. other than that most of the stuff is multi platform..

my 360 is 2 years old and hasn't even frozen up on me that i could recall. your argument is ridiculous. if you like the console better, then fine -- but to trash the other like you got stock in sony is lame.
yeah, your PSN is free, but it lacks ridiculous things, like capabilities to send messages and invites to players between games? You mean to tell me I can't get an invite from a friend playing CoD4, because I'm on Guitar Hero III.

The exclusive games on PS3 are dope. My girl is likely buying me one in a couple weeks, and I can't wait to cop Uncharted and Warhawk. But when it comes to games that are multi-platform, I gotta be honest -- I'm rolling with the 360 for 2 reasons -- XBox Live and Achievements. The PS3 exclusives are gonna have to step up hard, because for those of us that like achievements and gamerscores and don't really give a shit about this ridiculous war between the 2 consoles, 9 times out of 10, we're gonna roll with the 360's version. Especially those of us who haven't had a red ring'd 360.

As for the Bluray vs HD DVD remarks, it's whatever. At the very least Microsoft didn't force unproven hardware on buyers resulting in a console that cost more than what the average consumer was willing to pay. And if we want the HD experience, we can download full length Hi-Def off the marketplace. I downloaded 300 in HD and it was gorgeous. Microsoft did nothing wrong. When Sony and Toshiba decided they wanted to go to war and make competing formats, they both shitted on the consumer.

In the DVD War Over High Definition, Most Buyers Are Sitting It Out
By ERIC A. TAUB

What if nobody wins the high-definition DVD format wars? That increasingly looks to be the situation for the next-generation DVD technology, which is available to consumers in two incompatible formats.

A little more than 18 months after their introduction, the two systems — Blu-ray, developed by Sony, and HD DVD, from Toshiba — have sold around one million stand-alone players combined. Both sides promote their technologies, their movie studio allies and the growing list of movies available in the new formats.

Yet neither has a clear advantage, either in terms of technology, number of movies or, increasingly, the price of the equipment. According to data from Adams Media Research, 578,000 HD DVD and 370,000 Blu-ray machines will be sold by the end of this year. (NOTE FROM AMEN: PS3 OWNERS WILL SCREAM THAT BLURAY IS KILLING HD DVD)

The winner of the format wars could be determined by which company has the most content, in the same way the VHS-Betamax VCR war was decided. But both formats offer about 400 movies. Studios allied with the Blu-ray camp include Columbia, Disney, Fox, Lionsgate, Miramax, New Line and Sony.

In the HD DVD camp are DreamWorks, Paramount, Universal, the Weinstein Company, and several smaller TV and motion picture companies. Warner Brothers releases movies for both systems.

In November, Howard Stringer, the Sony chairman, publicly acknowledged that the formats were in a stalemate, and predicted that neither side would fold.

High-definition DVDs of both formats provide superior picture and sound quality compared with standard DVDs.

They also offer advanced interactive features like multiple camera angles, games, picture-in-picture commentaries and, in the case of HD DVD, a connection to the Internet to download more content.

But the visual and audio differences depend on the size of the TV screen used to display them.

“You start to enjoy the benefits of high-definition DVD at 40 inches and above,” said Chris Fawcett, vice president for product marketing at Sony Electronics’ home video group.

Only high-definition sets can display high-definition DVD images. And only the highest-resolution displays, the so-called 1080p HDTVs, for progressive scan, can show the images at their best. As a result, the potential customer base is limited. With a lower-resolution 720p set, “you are not as likely to see a dramatic a difference” between standard and high-definition DVDs, according to Andy Parsons, chairman of the Blu-ray Disc Association.

The two camps are victims of their own earlier success with DVD. The standard DVDs offered a quantum leap in quality from the picture and sound of VHS videotape, and for many that was more than adequate.

In addition, DVD players that can convert images to near high-definition quality can be found for under $100, hundreds less than a true high-definition DVD player, further reducing the urgency to upgrade to one of the new formats.

“Today, an HDTV owner hooks up a standard DVD and it looks good,” said Ken Graffeo, executive vice president of HD Strategic Marketing at Universal, and co-president of the HD DVD Promotional Group. “Unless they experience the new format, they won’t understand it.”

Not many consumers are interested in even taking a look. According to research by NPD Group, only 11 percent of HDTV set owners strongly intend to buy a Blu-ray or HD DVD player by next spring. Almost three-quarters of those HDTV owners surveyed said that standard DVD was good enough for them.

“This may emerge as a premium, luxury item, not a successor to DVD,” said Ross Rubin, director for industry analysis at NPD.

Blu-ray and HD DVD proponents are doing what they can to change that attitude. And the best technique to pique interest is dropping the price. As with most things electronic, prices for both players have fallen drastically since their introduction.

HD DVD players, the vast majority of which are made by Toshiba, still have the price advantage. The company’s least-expensive model — which displays images in the lower-quality 1080i format — can be found for $200 or less in electronics store promotions or from online discounters.

Its least-expensive 1080p model is selling at Amazon for $250. But it is a tit-for-tat war. A Blu-ray 1080p unit from Samsung is just $30 more at Costco. Blu-ray units are also made by Panasonic, Philips, Sony and others.

Several holiday promotions had players in either version selling for as low as $200.

In an effort to finesse the format war, LG sells a combination unit that plays both formats; however, its $1,000 price has prompted only a few thousand consumers to buy.

As prices drop, high-definition DVD drives will find their way into other devices. Mr. Graffeo predicts that by the end of next year, 5 million notebook computers will be sold with HD DVD drives.

Sony says that 3.4 million Blu-ray disc drives are also in PlayStation 3 machines, giving it a numerical advantage. But the rival camp points out that gamers are not buying the PS3 to watch movies, and in any case, 300,000 HD DVD add-on drives will have been purchased to use with the Xbox 360 game console from Microsoft.

The 400 movies available in each format are a fraction of the 90,000 movies and TV programs that the video rental company Netflix offers. Increasingly, high-definition DVDs are being issued simultaneously with the standard definition DVD release.

Consumers are usually advised to wait until a clear winner emerges. But if there is a deciding factor, it might be which format has the more compelling movies. Good animation looks three-dimensional in high definition, so Sony is hoping to gain an advantage by providing Blu-ray formats of “Ratatouille,” the Disney/Pixar film about a cute French rat who cooks, and blockbusters like “Spider-Man 3.”

As an indication of their owners’ enthusiasm, Blu-ray users are buying twice as many discs as their HD DVD counterparts, according to Tom Adams, president of Adams Media Research.

Discs can be rented at the Blockbuster and Netflix online stores. Of Blockbuster’s 5,000 physical stores, 250 offer both high-definition DVD formats, while 1,450 rent only Blu-ray; the rest offer none. The company emphasizes Blu-ray because 70 percent of its rentals are for that format, said Karen Raskopf, a Blockbuster spokeswoman.

The HD DVD camp is playing up its new interactive features, believing that the next generation of viewers wants to combine TV viewing with video games.

In Universal’s just-released HD DVD of “The Bourne Ultimatum,” viewers can play a game that tests their memories, and then upload their results using a broadband connection to a Web site and compare their scores with others.

Viewers can also find character dossiers, watch “Webisodes” with the Volkswagen Touareg sport utility vehicle featured in the film, and create playlists of their favorite scenes and share them with friends.

Those features will do little to increase sales, said Richard Doherty, an analyst with the Envisioneering Group. The market consultants’ surveys show that just 3 percent of consumers want interactivity, he said.

As more consumers buy HDTVs, and the price of dual format players drop, an uneasy truce may descend. With the studios in the United States collectively making $16.5 billion in worldwide video sales, according to Mr. Adams, companies will be loath to miss an opportunity to make money by allying themselves with one high-definition DVD format over the other. And then, the once-unthinkable could happen.

“When high-definition DVD reaches its tipping point, studios will have to release their movies in both HD DVD and Blu-ray,” Mr. Adams said. “No studio will be able to afford not to.”

my arguement on the systems is ridiculous?..lol its a fact that they have a very very high failure rate. its called reliability and quality. Achievements is ok, that will be on ps3 when home comes out so no big deal as well as ingame messaging. But microsoft messed up by not making a mandatory or standard hdd on each system.. Look at Unreal tournament 3 and the fact they ps3 can do customizable maps.. That wont be on 360 cause u dont have a standard hdd. and that was said by epic games themselves. And the m,ovies are gonna be on ps3 too. How can everyone that owns a 360 dl movies if they all dont have hdds? Youre right its a personal choice and whatever 360 gets sony will get too but we wont have to pay..lol. And the blu-ray format is good because it allows game makers the advantage of putting more info on the disc, about 3 times that of the standard dvd

its all fine ps3 can cover up there shitty games by a whole bunch of accesories built in, but in all honesty you cant say you are stoked about the ability to use a blue tooth head set the way you would be if gears came to ps3. all those built in wireless capabilities, storage, and power does not make up for the fun of Xbox Live (the best and only way to play online) go ahead and bitch about the 50 dollars anyone, but i spend about 50 a weekend on beer/bud so i could care less.

in all honesty achievements mean alot more to people than you think they actually have a reason to collect all 100 flags in assassins creed or 100% tiger challenge in TW08 they get rewarded for it. friends lists, XBL Marketplace... like a pocket bestbuy. love my 360

yo amen! when are me u and dubb gonna ball on COD?

the achievement system isn't really about collecting flags, homie. it's about adding replay value to games. i got assassin's creed a month ago and finally got around to beating it earlier this week. After I got the Achievement for completing the game, I made it my business to go back, and replay so I can complete some things I missed -- like kill over 75 guards with throwing knives, or evade capture for 10 minutes, etc. It might sound foolish to you, but on PS3, after you step out and the credits roll, that's pretty much the end of it. there's no added talk with someone on your friends list when you look at their game list and see that you accomplished something in a game that they got nowhere near doing.

you play call of duty 4, so look at it this way -- all the added points you get for challenges towards ranking up add incentive for you to switch up your gun. yeah, you might be nice with the M16, but once you got your 150 kills with it and got all your challenge points, you might wanna do the same with the G36C. you'll keep playing because you'll check your challenges and see that you need 8 more kills with the MP5 to get 500 points towards a new rank. that's what the achievement/gamerscore system is all about.

also, in a game like rainbow six where you get achievements for hitting certain ranks online, you get to see who cheated and who's legit. if someone got the Elite badge, but not the Best of the Best achievement, you know they glitched it.

i read in GameInformer magazine earlier this year with the editor pleading with Sony to make moves to get something like that done on their console. it doesn't cost the developer's anything extra to accommodate achievement statistics.
