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

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

Brett Favre-QB- Packers Jul. 2 - 7:16 pm et


NFL Network's Adam Schefter suggest the Jets, Chiefs, and Ravens as possible landing spots if the Packers decide to trade Brett Favre.

Schefter strongly cautions that he's not reporting or trying to "rumor monger," but these would all be sensible landing spots. The Chiefs once traded for Joe Montana in a somewhat similar scenario. The Jets once thought they would get Favre, but settled for drafting Browning Nagle instead. In the end, however, Schefter says he wouldn't bet on Favre playing football in 2008.

IF Favre ever comes back, the Ravens and Chiefs would make the most sense, since they feel they are only a quality QB away from SuperBowl contention.

The Jets? Nah. It's true that we really wanted him at the beginning, but the people who really wanted him have all gone. That's how Favre ended up in Green Bay in the first place-Ron Wolf, the personnel guy who tried so hard to get Favre for the Jets at the beginning, went over to Green Bay and made his top prority getting Favre over there.

Moreover, Tangini has a set out plan, and they are sticking to it. That plan does not include quick fixes like unretiring qb's-it's just not in their nature.

My guess is Miami. Bill Parcells loves old qb's.

Ravens might be a quality QB away from SuperBowl contention, but the Chiefs are nowhere near that. They have no team and no coach.

They were in the playoff hunt two years ago and were good enough to make old journeyman Damon Huard look like a million bucks. I'm sure they think the collapse in 2007 was because of Brodie Croyle's growing pains. With a rip-'em-up QB like Favre running the club for the next two years, they would expect big things.

There have been many posts on this subject worded much stronger than this, but I'll just reply to this one because it is in this thread.

Can somebody please tell me why anybody feels they have the right to tell somebody they are wrong for changing their mind about their own career? Yes I know he publicly announced his retirement, or seemed to announce it through tears a couple of years ago, and now it looks like he's having second thoughts again, but so what?

The Packers don't want him anymore, not because Favre wasn't great last year but because Rodgers played so sharp during Favre's absence one game that they feel this is the right time to hand over the team. So if Favre wants to change his mind, and some club wants him, why all this exasperation?

Are these fans taking Favre's retirement announcement as some sort of personal promise to them, specifically? If so, why?

In the immortal words of Penn&Teller:

"BULLSHIT!"

Leave Farve alone. Let a lame dog die an honorable death. Farve tarnishes his legacy with every come-back story. This guy's like a little kid who just wants attention.

Not at all the point.

This is about narcissism on Farve's part. He does this intentionally I'm sure of it. He'll announce his retirement. Everyone will cry their crocodile tears wish he'd reconsider. He doesn't. He leaves. Mid-season, when he sees other people besides him making headlines, he "considers" a comeback and walks back into the NFL, basking the glory to the sounds trumpeting sycophantic fans.

It has to stop.

I wouldn't want him for 1 reason. He is old and I don't think he could master our system in a month. If we got him in the offseason before the draft, maybe because he could learn the system and build the chemistry, but we are talking about a QB coming in for a year and not knowing the system at training camp. I do not want that, we are better off with Clemens who has 3 years in this system.
Favre can still play though, I thought he shouldn't have retired, but now its a dick move, because they are all ready for Rogers being their QB.

I doubt he'll be going back to the Packers. They didn't even try to talk him out of retirement when he announced. Aaron Rodgers played up a storm during a stretch of a game when Favre got hurt, and the Packers decided right there that it was time to give him the team.

Although they still have his contract, any return by Favre will be to someone else. The Packers should not demand much in the way of compensation from whatever team Favre can reach agreement with-assuming he does come back.

Thank you Dr. Freud. Well, that rules out any possibility that what we have here is a guy who lived, breathed and constantly thought football since he was five, who loves just about everything about playing the game, but who for several years had increasing doubts that his aging body could take the brutal training camp regimen even one more time. And is therefore unable to keep himself from going back and forth on the issue.

None of this seems to correlate with the situation at hand. Favre already announced his retirement months ago. The Packers did NOT try to talk him out of it. He's NOT considering a midseason comeback, he's considering a comeback ten weeks before the season begins, which will give him plenty of time to fit right in. With his experience, Favre might know more about the system his new team is putting in than the offensive coordinator.

This is what gets me-why are you and other fans taking this so personally? Did you take his retirement announcement as a personal promise to you? It's his career, and if some team decides that Brett Favre at QB gives them a better chance to win than whoever they have now, what's the problem?

I have to agree. The guy gave his heart and all for a long time, played the game right, hurt etc. It must be real tough to finally walk away. He was never a guy that tried to drum up publicity (though Madden regularly sucked his dik on MNF or any other game he covered), if he (or anyone except Roger Clemens maybe) wants to come back that is his call. I love the guy and would love to see him play more.

The only way Farve is landing on the Jets is if you sign him from FA on Madden 09.

That actually makes a lot of sense since they were inquiring about Taylor before. I dunno. I dont think the jets would take him, what would they give up for Favre? And then your really banking on win next year or nothing. Plus our wr's have had enough problems adjusting from Penningtons soft passes to Clemens rockets, what would they do with Favre throwing to them? Doesnt sound good to me.

I like Favre and if he comes back good for him, i just dunno where hed end up cus GB is def not gunna have him back. Very strange situation here.

Yeah, its a personal promise to ALL of us. He RETIRED. The Packers have turned the page, its time for Farve to do the same.

Technically he never retired. As Schefter has stated a bunch of times there was obvious paperwork that had to be submitted that he hasn't done yet so in acutallity he hasn't officially retired.

Look, NO ONE has the right to tell a professional athlete when its time to retire, its THEIR life, its what they've been doin since they were kids and what they worked so hard to achieve in life. No one goes around to an office and says, hey bob, what are u 55 now? dont u think its time to hang the stapler up and retire? I mean comon. I know the money is different but most athletes love thier job or at least better than another job so no one has a right to tell them when its time for their dream to be over. Its a teams decision on whether or not they can still use them but as long as there is still a team that will have them in some capacity then they can and should play as long as they want.

If Favre still wants to play, thats his and his family's decision to make, not ours. Its his life, his memories, his body, and his sacrifice. Let the guy be. He might not have done it the best or cosmetically good looking way, but we are all human, we cant always do everything to everyone elses standereds and hes been confused for a while. Its a huge decision and hes had trouble wit it. Just let him be is all im saying.
