santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 03:19 PM) holy shit thrilling match up tonight
2JBallar01 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 04:13 PM) Does it matter who wins tonight? Draft pick wise for the Jets?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 04:16 PM) Probably not. We probably want to draft above the Titans though if that is possible, they are a team that could use a QB. The Jaguars just drafted Blake Bortles, doubt they go first round QB 2 years in a row
santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 04:29 PM) so titans win is best win
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 05:52 PM) DRAFT WINSTON
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 05:52 PM) FIRE IDZIK
2JBallar01 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 07:05 PM) I'm leaning towards wanting to draft Cooper or oline with the first pick. have a good line and or relceiver core and try and sign Bradford or trade for Cutler to play QB. And have Geno as back up for us.
2JBallar01 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 07:06 PM) Not sure if Winston can be a franchise QB. Even Mariota has question marks.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (18 December 2014 - 08:25 PM) That is why we need to draft Cooper at WR and then later in the draft go and get Petty
santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 09:44 PM) clipboard jesus lead the way
santana Icon : (18 December 2014 - 09:48 PM) I miss leon
ROBJETS Icon : (18 December 2014 - 11:35 PM) If the Jets would have lost last week since the Jags won the Jets would have the 2 seed right now and not stuck at the 6 seed
ROBJETS Icon : (18 December 2014 - 11:36 PM) Oh well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:21 AM) I think IK shows potential as a pass rusher
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 12:50 PM) If the new HC goes to a 4-3 it will be interesting to see if Couples can play on the end.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:43 PM) he's probably better as a 4-3 DE then a 3-4 LBer anyway
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:43 PM) we'd need another DT though
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 02:12 PM) Rex to atlanta rumors swirling about
2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:35 PM) Who should be my 2 starters at WR for my fantasy. Championship game. It's between AJ Green, Djax, and Mike Evans. I have Hilton too but I think colts will sit him this week
2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:36 PM) I'm thinking Djax and Evans. I don't think the match up with green vs Denver
2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:37 PM) I have Ingram, Lamar Miller, and Lacy as my RBs and flex
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 03:41 PM) green and desean pretty much the same risk reward
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 03:41 PM) lock evans in and play the matchup for the other spot
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 03:41 PM) also might snow in denver mnf i would keep an eye on that
2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:48 PM) Good thinkin! I think I'm going to play djax. I like the match up better

This post might look like some show off shit -- but I put this out there for ideas in case some of you got em. Let me know what you've got in your bedrooms, living rooms, or whatever.


For those curious.. It's a 40" Toshiba Regza 1080p. On the stand is a PS3, Wii, and 360 w/ HD DVD add-on. Below is the Sony receiver for some cheap $150 Home Theater in a Box system I bought. I'm no audiophile, and my living room is narrow, so I didn't need something extravagant. The sub doesn't BOOM as much as I'd like, but it kicks enough to make me smile. And the very bottom is the Time Warner cable box.

What's the best way to keep the wires looking neat? You see them shits? It's ugly. I rarely ever notice them because when I watch TV or play, the lights are off, so everything is blacked out. But when I put this pic on my PC, I at the mess of wires. Problem is that I'm not trying to drill holes in my wall to sneak the wires through. Help?

get a drywall knife or just a plain old knife will do and a stud finder. cut a square hole 4x3 in the shape of a power socket or phone jack. behind ur tv and behind your furniture there. drop a cord/rope from the top one to the bottom one. pull up all ur cables that you need behind the tv. leave it like that all ghetto or if you want to be fancy there are wall plates designed specifically to do that. make sure you get plane wall plates or spakle.. so when you move out or decide to move the setup. you just cover the holes with them.


edit. if you dont want to deal with making holes you can always go with the tube style organizer. there are some that even zip up.

AMEN IS BALLIN!!!!! hysterical.gif

Thats the only reason why I don't play vids on my flat screen. I got a 38' 1080i in my bedroom, however I don't play my vids in there because thats my womans headquarters but there was a point in time I was going to use my flatscreen to play vids in my living room. However after further examination it's looked hella tacky with all the wires. The flat screens are great for watching T.V but when you start hooking components it looks like chit. In any event, I ended up going to the bank for another T.V. In my living room I got a 52' HD 1080i thats stands up right. Easier to conceal the wires at the back.

My suggestion without doing a whole hell of a lot is to go get some kind of paneling, drill/cut a hole where your T.V gets hung. after that feed the wires through the cut hole then secure the paneling to the wall. Now the paneling is used as a backdrop and the wires drop to the floor behind the paneling. Then you can either run them under the panel or cut out a new hole to feed the wires to your components.

If you don't want to go that route, then another idea could be to get all the wires and run them to the left corner and get one of them synthetic tall plants/trees to fit in the corner and get your wires running behind that.

I'm not sure if you have insulation behind your wall, if not and you plan on making that area your gaming area with no plans on moiving it then drill 1 nice size hole just under your T.V and feed the wires through the wall, then drill another small hole at the bottom and fish them through. However, if you don't do any of these it's virtually impossible to hind them.

Last option, buy a new T.V (floor model) for your vids.

peace!

Ahh yes.. I forgot about that thing. Works great and is cheap too, like santana said, this is probably your best route if you don't want to drill. However the paneling idea a friend of mind did and his looks nice.

Don't mind me. You know what you could do as well. Buy a piece of black board and measure between your T.V to the floor and just nail a nice piece of board over the wires. So all you'd see is the bottom of your T.V and a black board. That could work as well.

a friend of mine on another forum suggested pipe insulation to help conceal the wires.


couple that with some zip ties, and I should be able to clear up the mess. another suggestion was to get a gutter, and paint it the same color as my walls.

What I'm actually hoping to do involves rearranging my living room so that the TV is on another wall. The problem with my living space is that it's long, but narrow. And the way I have my living room set up doesn't take advantage of the size. I'm actually planning on hitting up Home Depot and buying a bunch of wood to build everything myself. I wanna create shelves that are mounted into the walls and place each different unit on them, with a cubby beneath for their respective items. Like beneath the 360 shelf will be a cabinet/cubby for games and controllers, etc. I'm also gonna need to take advantage of the Wi-Fi for my consoles, because running the ethernet cables is adding clutter. But mounting everything into the walls increases floor space, so that definitely interests me. It's also cheaper to buy all the wood and do it myself than it will be to buy a huge entertainment center.

Dude, cut a hole in the sheeetrock directly underneath the mount 2" X 3" or smaller you only have 4 or 5 wires. Go to bottom of wall cut same size hole and use a fish tape to run the wire through the wall. I bought my TV and best bbut wanted $500.00 plus to install. After watching a Bob Villa online video I said no way am I paying someone to do this. My wife and I did this in about 1 hour and most of that time was me literally swinging from the TV stand to make sure it was secure. The 52" Sony Bravia XBR was kind of pricey, but since the Jets finally spent a little money to improve the team I thought hell Why not!!!!!

That is NICE! all the Jets stuff is beautiful. I'd have to re-do all my walls to make it match. I know all about the hole in the wall trick though. I just really didn't want to cut a hole in the wall. It's bad enough I had to cut one down in that corner to run extension cords through for my air conditioning.

its not bad if you know what you are doing. my pops has made a living putting holes in peoples walls because they feel unsure or scared about doing it them selves.

who knows you might just be one bob villa tape away from wanting to ceiling mount ur speakers and tidy up your entertainment center.

I'm not afraid of power tools or drilling. I don't consider myself handy, but I know a thing or two about keeping things leveled. I've put up sheet rock walls with my father, and sawed things down to fit specific spaces. just when i took over the place, all the power tools went with my father to Staten Island, and I've been left with making Target my best friend. My boy Ziad has power tools though since he works in carpentry/hardware. He had the drill to mount the TV for me to begin with, and he's going to be the one that helps me when I re-do the living room.

I did not have to use any power tools at all. Cut your holes for your wire with a sheetrock knife. If you do not have a fish tape use two coathangers to pull your wire thru the wall. Cut your top hole behind your tv very close to the bottom of the mount so if the hole is not perfect it will be behind the Tv and you won't see it. The same at the botton go almost to the floor with the hole the entertainment shelf will be in front of the hole. Go to home depot and buy a couple of outlet boxes with covers if you want it to be neat. I think I paid less than $5.00 for two.

The cords gotta go. Get a blu tooth device for that, mount the speakers to maximize the surround sound and then buy some component towers at like a Target, Wal Mart or Best Buy to free up room on your glass table. I'd rock no more than two items on the glass table with nothing on top.
This team gives me gray hairs, but I love them none the less.
