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 : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?

Don't you think the numbers are skewed a little bit? Boston played the Yankees 18 times. They have the best hitters and Beckett had to pitch to them 4 times last year. That's gonna screw his stats up a tad.

Not only that but you guys are only telling half of the story when it comes to stats and anyway stats don't prove everything. Beckett is way more dominant. How about these numbers and I'm not sure what you're talking about but Beckett had a better ERA this year too.

2007 Stats
Beckett: ERA 3.27 | Hits 189 | Runs 76 | Home Runs 17 | Walks 40 | Strike Outs 194 | Wins 20
Santana: ERA 3.33 | Hits 183 | Runs 88 | Home Runs 33 | Walks 52 | Strike Outs 235 | Wins 15

So Santana has more strike outs, but they gave up practically the same amount of hits so that's all that matters. Santana has given up more runs and twice as many home runs. He also walked more people and was 5 back on wins. Johan pitched against the Yankees once last year. Beckett had to pitch to them 4 times. Not only that but both of those losses were only by 1 run. I'm not sure if you Tankees fans were even watching the playoffs since you got kicked out so soon but all they talked about was how Josh Beckett was the best pitcher in the game right now. Those are professionals that now more about the game than any of us do. I think that counts for something. Not only that but the guy is just absolutely dominant.

On a side note: I'm not sure why C.C. Sebathia won the Cy Young award because that's criminal. Beckett had more wins, fewer hits, fewer runs, fewer home runs, the same WHIP, and a slightly less ERA. Not only that but he dominated the hell out of Sebathia in the playoffs. Oh well. That's my argument. I know it's hard for Tankees fans to admit the truth, but the truth is that Beckett owns and you wish you had him.


Tell me, during Santana's few starts against the Yankees, the best hitting team in all of baseball, how has he done. Santana has completely dominated the Yankees his whole career. Can't say that about Josh Beckett, now can you? Infact I can only remember one start he did well against the Yankees in his career, and thats when he won the World Series for the Florida Marlins, since then he can't pitch against them. I can't remember the last time the Yankees ever hit Johan Santana well, or if they ever did.

Like I said, Josh Beckett may have had the better season, but that no way means he's the better pitcher, why don't you take each pitchers best season, and then see it that way. This has been Santana's worse season overall and if Santana 3.33 ERA is his worse season, and Beckett's 3.27 ERA is his best, whose the better pitcher?

Theres another huge difference. Santana plays for the Minnesota Twins, while Josh Beckett plays with the Boston Red Sox. I think the Red Sox have a hitting advantage, hence why Beckett had more wins the last season. You put him on a team like the Yankees, or Red Sox, and he'll probably almost win 25 games every single season.

There is no way Josh Beckett is anywhere near as good as pitchers like Johan Santana, Erik Bedard, or Scott Kazmir.

I've deleated my last two posts that were regarding Enrich's posts, he's obviously not to bright enough to talk sports like a normal person, so instead of posting facts to prove his point, he just insults people.

I've been spending my time talking with Jetson about whose the better pitcher, yet you haven't seen me post such an idiotic statement like this enrich character did above. I'm having fun with this discussion with Jetson, but no Mets fan have given me facts, they just think they've got the better farm, which is total bullcrap.

When you Mets fans are smart enough to talk baseball, and your team is good enough to make it to the postseason, then talk to me, because until then, buzz off.

I indeed was not insulting..I was just warning others.
When a argument contradictory to yours arises, you immediately feel the need to insult them.
Also, when one tries to give you support to their claim you attack their support. I can understand difference of opinion, it happens all the time in discussions, but instead of making an intelligent counter to why someone else is wrong(and it seems with you, they are always wrong) you just go off and attack them in some way.
Don't get me wrong, some of your posts are promising, I see a strong argument, which may be right in some cases but you always feel the need to put down others in one post or another.
I just want to see less childish remarks and more solid argument because theres no need for it.

Thats is all for me because of the aforementioned.


GO METS!!!

Actually, I insult people after I prove them wrong, and for you I understand that happens many, many times, and besides in what book does calling someone ignorant not an insult?

Yeah, and that 0.06 ERA difference really is much. It's still his worse season, and im 99.9% sure that Johan Santana will end up having a better season then Beckett will next season.

How is it dreaming, it's very reasonable for someone like Johan Santana to have a better season then the highly overrated Josh Beckett. Who knows, knowing Beckett, he could get injured again, as usual. Thats another thing in Santana's advanatge. Beckett is injury prone. So, when Santana has a better season regardless of which team he's on, i'll be bumping this topic back up to point fingers and laugh at you, and if for some weird reason it goes in Beckett's advanatge, you could do the same.

I get a kick out of MLB arguments! Their system sucks! Let me see some sort of a cap come about and I'll be impressed. The same 6 or so teams every year throwing ridiculous money at the top free agents! Like I've stated before only a sport like baseball could have a team pay one (1) player,Clemons more then the entire Devil Ray team! I'm sorry, I just don't see the fun anymore in that sport! But , hey enjoy guys! And I'm aware that Santana isn't a free agent. I love the contracts that the superstars sign, where there is only a handful of teams that they will accept a trade to, and the Devil Rays, Royals, Twins, Marlins etc. are never in those handful!



And since this a JET FOOTBALL FORUM, I wanted to add my two cents regarding baseball topics!

And this is the hilarious part, just because these Mets fans can't take it that their farm just sucks, and they don't prove themselves otherwise, they go ahead and ruin a topic by insulting the person whose bashing their farm.

Listen, Mets fans, I'm sorry that your teams farm system sucks, and has nothing against players like Hughes, Chamberlain, Kennedy, and Tabata. I'm sorry that you're stuck with players like Pelfrey, and Humber for your pitching prospects. I'm sorry that your team couldn't even make the playoffs with the third highest payroll in the game. I'm sorry that your team is the joke of the state of New York. I'm sorry that Yankee fans think your team is a waste, and would rather the dodgers would have stayed here, because they were at least good.

I know it's hard to ask, but why not keep the topic actually on topic. Ya know what, after this post, i'm just going to ignore what Enrich, and Ewok have to say, because they're obviously too ignorant to talk baseball, and whose getting the best pitcher in the game. Only Mets fans with actually knowledge of the game are Dave, and Ron. There is probably more, but i'm sorry if I missed you, I got stuck with these two idiots in my head.

There are more, and they admit that their farm system isnt as strong as the yankees right now.

Yeah, they keep saying that since they don't believe with what i'm saying I end up going ahead and insulting them, which I don't recall really doing in this topic, I mean look at the discussion i've been having with Jetson, have you really seen me insult the guy? No, we're just talking who we both think is better between the two pitchers.

Then you've got the Mets fans, sure i've insulted them, but thats because they insulted me before I did. Would I have insulted them before they insulted me, no, because it isin't worth it, and they'll eventually find that out when they grow up. These are Mets fans though, you got to understand that their team puts them through pretty much hell. You see Enrich, and Ewok, the last time they won was in 1986... They were not even born yet... so, you see it sucks to be them...

Yeah, in my opinion that offer is to just get the yankees to offer up Phil Hughes, which we still shouldn't do. Consdiering that Ian Kennedy, has way more upside then Lester does, and Melky is like 23, so he still has a chance to get really good, even though to this day he is better than Crispies, and then you got Jed Lowrie, all we've got to basically do is add someone like Austin Jackson or Jose Tabata.

So tell me, how is Lester, Crisp, and Lowrie different from Kennedy, Melky, and Tabata. If you ask me they're just bluffing to get us to send more, and we better not trade Hughes, because Hughes is the real deal, he'll be as good as someone like Kazmir, or Bedard.

If the twins do that they are stupid, thats a horrible deal. Crisp sucks, Lester is decent but Crisp sucks so that brings the value down.
That would be scary if the Sox get Santana, having him and Beckett. WOW THey would defintely win the WS again.
But I dont want the Yankees to let Hughes, or Cano go. Hughes is a definte stud young pitcher, I really see him being a ace. Cano is a rising star, no way we trade him. I would let Kennedy go, even though I like him also, I think he can be a really good pitcher. But out of Chamberlin, Hughes and Kennedy, I have Kenndy the worst out of them. I think Hughes is the best, then Chamberlin, I still dont think Joba is a better starter than Hughes yet as a prospect just because he hasnt been a starter yet in the MLB, he was just a RP. I really like Melky, he gives us energy, its hard to let him go but to get a pitcher like Santana, that would have to happen. I like the idea of giving Kennedy and Melky with another guy for Santana, keep Hughes off the list, he is too good and young to let go. A 21 year old possible future ace. Melky is a better player than Crisp, Melkys a better hitter and is only 23 where Crisp is 28.

Seems like both the Yankees, and Red Sox are too smart for the Twins' mind games. They want the Red Sox to add Ellsbury, and the Sox won't budge, and they want the Yankees to add Hughes, and they wont budge either.

The Yankees current offer is believed to be Ian Kennedy, Melky Cabrera, and either Alan Horne, or Jose Tabata. It doesn't seem like either the Yankees or Red Sox will be adding Hughes, or Ellsbury, so it'll be the Twins' choice to either send Santana to either of these teams for what they've offered, or look elsewhere, like the Mets, Angels, or Dodgers.
