azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:35 PM) Is anyone else as concerned as I am about the secondary?
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:36 PM) I know it's preseason and all but even with Milliner in on the first game we gave up a TD on the first drive to the Colts
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:37 PM) Patterson looked like me out there and Wilson got torched last night
Smedsthejet Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:26 PM) Concerned about the right side of the OLine too - too many penalties and Giacomini wasn't that much better than against the Colts when he was poor
SackExchange71 Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:31 PM) Imo i still think howard is better then giacomini..Wish they never let him walk.Giacomini had alot of flags in seattle also
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:33 AM) Howard recieved a huge contract in Oakland. Way over his actual value.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 10:08 AM) So did we make a trade for a CB yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:51 PM) Milliner did suffer a high ankle sprain, that sucks. could linger all year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:52 PM) I think Patterson sucked vs the Colts because he was injured, which he always is.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:49 PM) As much as people criticized Tannanbaum for spending too much. It's starting to look like Idzik is going to be too cheap.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:52 PM) You get what you pay for and when you let quality players go because you don't want to pay them, this is what happens. You're left with scrub players.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 07:55 PM) I'm still on board with the Idzik plan. Even with Revis and Revis we still are not going to the SB this year. But the down time sucks. If Milliner comes back healthy by week 3 or so we should be fine.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 08:18 PM) Regardless of our SB chances this year or next year. If Idzik keeps acting like a cheapskate and continues to let quality players go, we won't have to worry about winning much of anything this decade.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) He wants to build through the draft. Not blow the bank on FA. I get what your saying but there is a balance and right now we are not one or two pieces away.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:00 PM) It's not about being one or two pieces away. It's about keeping the good pieces you have and building upon that.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:04 PM) But there is no sense in trying to build through the draft if he's only going to end up letting the good players he picks up go in FA after a few years. All because he wants to do things on the cheap.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) The Revis deal sucks but $16 million was too much for a CB and once he was gone he was not coming back.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 01:00 PM) Eh. I think with our current cap situation we will be able to retain guys like Wilkerson and whomever we want to keep. We are in a good position right now.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 02:00 PM) landed revis abck. got DRC, nope we take patterson who got owned and always hurt. milner always hurt. 3rd round CB done for season. were gonna get passed on all day
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:46 PM) I'm not saying Idzik is perfect. I just like the direction we are heading. It's going to take some patience.
RetireChrebet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:27 PM) I like how our lack of secondary is the hot topic right now. The bigger issue is we still will not be able to throw the ball. We are not going to do much of anything regardless until we get a QB. Sorry for being so negative just my honest opinion.
RetireChrebet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:29 PM) With that said I think our running game with CJ and Powell will be top 10 or somewhere around there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:35 PM) i have faith that if geno messes up that vick can come in and do well. but i have 0 faith in our secondary right now which has been our strong point for the past 4 years or so
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:35 PM) I agree 115. but the one thing is Rex has done some good things in the past with shitty DBs and still had a solid D going back to his years in BAL
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:37 PM) Corey Ivy CB
36 Jim Leonhard SS/PR
43 Haruki Nakamura FS
25 Evan Oglesby CB
20 Ed Reed FS
22 Samari Rolle CB
39 Daren Stone FS
41 Frank Walker CB
31 Fabian Washington in 2008
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 PM) The JETS are #6 in the Forbes List for most franchise value
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 PM) The Buffalo Jills are #31 and the Miami Dolphags are #16 respectively
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 PM) The JETS are worth $1.8 billion
jet-man Icon : (Yesterday, 10:03 PM) that's less than the clippers
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 01:07 PM) I'm very excited with the amount of preseason touchdowns the Jets have

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.

Amen must be making the big bucks. all 3 systems, big screen TV, surround sound system. i could probably afford more then i got if i didn't do stupid stuff all the time. i got a 37" vizio TV, and xbox360, and original xbox, sorround sound, HDTV DVR form direcTV, CDDVD player/burner, laptop, external CD/DVD burner, so i got a decent set-up myself. can't compete with u though

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.
