santana Icon : (Today, 01:58 PM) Blew through the lbs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:01 PM) and of course we let them almost break it on the kickoff
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:01 PM) but it's a penalty against them so it's null
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:01 PM) f*** THE patriots
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:02 PM) noone touched him and he fell down like a BITCH
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:04 PM) The secondary is playing well above their heads this game.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:06 PM) Woodys wife is young and hot. I didn't expect any different
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:07 PM) Harvin is $$$$$
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:07 PM) Yay or Nay on Harvin in 2015?
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:08 PM) Keeper. Try to get his $$ under control but either way
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:13 PM) That was a good catch against Mevis
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:13 PM) yes, Keep Harvin. The dude is a playmaker
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:13 PM) Hes playing with a sprained ankle too, hes tough
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:14 PM) Harvin and Decker could be the best WR combo we had in a long time
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:14 PM) we might actually take the lead into half
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:14 PM) I expect Jace Amaro to emerge more next season, TEs usually start off slow and they give Cumberland more playing time for some reason
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:15 PM) GET 7 HERE
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:16 PM) we settle for 3
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:16 PM) With the right coach and QB, we could have a good offense next season. Also improve the OL a bit

ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:17 PM) but we need a GM who knows what the hell he's doing
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:17 PM) Dalton Freeman is a really good backup center, I think he'll end up being a starter. Maybe our future starter
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:17 PM) we might have a shit ton of cap space but if we keep drafting busts it won't matter
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:17 PM) Is Paul Hackett back? 3 and 8 and we runa draw?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:18 PM) yes that is true too, we need to get rid of Idzik because I don't trust him hiring a new HC, using our top pick well, or using our cap space
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:18 PM) great coverage
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:19 PM) SACKED!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:19 PM) RICHARDSON
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:19 PM) SHELDON!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:19 PM) Richardson is gonna get paid, him and Wilkerson will cost big bucks
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:20 PM) The STUD Sheldon
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:20 PM) 7.5 sacks for Richardson
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:20 PM) now we need to get aggressive in the 2nd half
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:21 PM) if Rex wasn't so disinterested in the Offense I'd consider him to return but he could give a flying f*** about the O so I want him gone
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:22 PM) and those sweater vests are the most hideous things in the world
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:22 PM) if only we could keep REx as a DC
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:23 PM) he'll be the next HC of the Chicago Bears
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:26 PM) That'll be interesting, bring back the monsters of midway
jetfan4life12 Icon : (Today, 02:28 PM) It's nice to see the jets giving 100% every play. Why can't they do that every week
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:29 PM) cause we don't have the talent
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:29 PM) we are mediocre
jetfan4life12 Icon : (Today, 02:29 PM) 0099 Harvin is another Devon Hester
jetfan4life12 Icon : (Today, 02:30 PM) similar to Hester

Sony Corp., which said it would launch PlayStation 3 in the spring, has not released a price for its new console.

$399.99 - 20gb HDD, wireless controller, headset, ethernet cable, and remote.

Yeah, but in my opinion I think Sony makes better video games. But, that is my opinion, and your entitled to your own as well.

They made Age of Empires. They published RON. They made Age of Kings. They made the NFL Fever and NBA Inside Drive series. What's next? They made Age of Mythology. Now you think Microsoft don't make good games?

Um... we have been over this before, so I am not gonna give you any games from Sony. I mentioned some in the past, I do not need to bother saying them now.

I never said MS doesn’t make good games I said neither of them make a lot of games. They might publish them but their not the actual makers of them. But to make it short and end it I’m not loyal to any of them. I work for my money and can give 2 craps about either company. I just want the most for my money and the best machine with the best games. And I was a “sony lover” as u call it. have both playstations until I bought a GC and an xbox. Then seen the xbox was far superior. If the PS3 turns out to be better with better games then I’ll buy one and say how great it is. I don’t take sides with their company. If sony and MS aint paying my rent then why should I support their company?

im gonna get PS3 just for the next grand theft auto. i dont play halo, but ive heard good things about it. however, i dont see how any game ever made could be better than grand theft auto san andreas. from the amazing storyline to the killing that makes it GTA to the hundreds of side things to do, to the difficulty that they got right on target (difficult enough but not impossible). its amazing

Classic games like Mario > all

GTA > Halo

GTA = Madden > Halo

There shouldn't be any arguments about loyalty to video games...that's ridiculous. I prefer Xbox but PS2 is just as good. It is upsetting that a system that costs less than a hundred dollars to produce is priced at two hundred and ninety nine dollars.

actually on the new xbox MS is taking a hit. they cost more to produce then they are selling for. the processors alone are 400 dollars. the first xbox was probably about 200 to produce

not true.....im not familiar with the costs of processors or any of that, but i do know that a company will not make a product that they lose money on. never. its one thing if theyve been making it for a while, prices for parts went up, then they started losing money, but even in that case, they would stop production. if microsoft is going to lose moeny on the new xbox, they will not make it, especially if it hasnt even been released yet.

Xbox 360 will only succede b/c it comes out first. It's not going to be nearly as powerful as PS3 because of no other reason then logic... it comes out before it. technology always improves as per Moore's rule. Also the price is ridiculous. 300 for an inferior system and 400 for the one every will want. the stripped down version does not have a wireless controller nor a HD. if you were to buy everything that the 400 dollar version has the price would be around 450-500. that's unfair because there's really no reason to have the stripped down version. But there's no way I pay 400 dollars for any video game system and I consider myself a hardcore gamer. I'll wait for the price to go down thank you very much.

The PS3 will fail becuase it will come out at least a year after Xbox 360 and should cost anywhere from 400- 600 dollars. Don't believe me? Fine, but I'm telling you Sony is insane with this thing. It's so powerful that not one single person can afford it without putting it on a payment plan. I think sony might be throwing around ideas on payment plans of their own for gamers to use to buy this monstrosity.

And there's Revolution. Not muc can be said about it except TBA. not much is known and expectations are becoming unrealistic. But it promised to cost anywhere from 150-200 dollars so if you ask me this will sell better then most people give it a chanc to. With all this HD stuff and incredible power being used, price seems to be thrown to the wayside. MEanwhile nintendo promises great gameplay, as usual, and an affordible, small, sleek, quite, wifi out of the box machine. Those are things the other companies can't garuntee.

I dont know what will happen in the next year or so but I do know that I wont buy anything I think is overpriced and especially if I'm swamped in school work in year 2 at PSU.
I changed my name, but I dont remember what it was... if anyone remembers please let me know.
