azjetfan Icon : (16 April 2015 - 10:26 AM) I still like the guy. He's entertaining
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 01:25 PM) i miss rex. love his demeanor
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 01:26 PM) i'd be happy if he kicks the shit out of miami and NE every year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 09:56 PM) I
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 09:56 PM) I'm excited for the new coaching staff
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 09:56 PM) Rex wsa fun, but he was too much with the defense instead of the entire football team
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 09:57 PM) also he didn't always hold players accountable. I think Bowles will make the team more disciplined.
santana Icon : (17 April 2015 - 02:50 AM) I don't have any faith in bowles
azjetfan Icon : (17 April 2015 - 08:15 AM) “San Diego Chargers will ultimately make a deal with the Tennessee Titans for the number two overall pick. As part of that trade, the Chargers will send the number 17 overall pick and Philip Rivers, just as a start, for the number two pick.”
azjetfan Icon : (17 April 2015 - 08:15 AM) Damn... Who called it? This guy.
azjetfan Icon : (17 April 2015 - 08:16 AM) http://national.sunt...s-mariota-trade
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 April 2015 - 10:13 AM) So we would now lose out on maroita and rivers
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 April 2015 - 10:13 AM) Ain't that super
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 01:39 PM) do we make a trade for AP?
santana Icon : (17 April 2015 - 02:41 PM) I believe the rivers stuff is all speculation
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 03:38 PM) So a top ten qb and the 17th pick for the 2nd overall as a start? Makes sense
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 03:39 PM) So Many smokescreens this time of year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 04:08 PM) only 2 more weeks before we find out. draft day will be exciting
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 04:09 PM) my money is we'll take a pass rushing OLB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 08:08 PM) Yup, unless they trade up.
azjetfan Icon : (18 April 2015 - 07:36 PM) Just spent two w
azjetfan Icon : (18 April 2015 - 07:36 PM) hours in a fitting booth for my new irons.
azjetfan Icon : (18 April 2015 - 07:37 PM) going with Ping G25
azjetfan Icon : (18 April 2015 - 07:37 PM) 4-pw
santana Icon : (19 April 2015 - 02:36 AM) Nice
santana Icon : (19 April 2015 - 02:38 AM) My mizunos are still in Va I need to fly them down. Tired of borrowing clubs
azjetfan Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:13 AM) I tried the Mizunos
azjetfan Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:13 AM) they didn't have the spin like the pings.
azjetfan Icon : (19 April 2015 - 09:51 AM) I did hit the further though
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 April 2015 - 10:27 AM) Rex putting a hit out on Jace Amaro
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 April 2015 - 11:49 AM) SUCK FOR THE DUCK
santana Icon : (19 April 2015 - 06:31 PM) Eagles sign Tebow to a 1 year deal
santana Icon : (19 April 2015 - 06:31 PM) what in the world chip kelly
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:13 PM) Sanchez must be banging his head against the wall screaming NOT AGAIN NOT AGAIN
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:46 PM) Chip Kelly is a assclown for making such weird boneheaded decisions
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:46 PM) Iggles in 2015 0-16 write it down
santana Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:51 PM) Well I doubt tebow makes the roster
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 April 2015 - 10:17 PM) THE TEBOW!!!!!
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 09:03 AM) Tim Tebow leave Sanchez Alone!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 AM) Rex was talking shit about Amaro saying they lacked accountability last season, now Colon has come out saying the same thing
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 AM) Todd Bowles is emphasizing accountability with the team
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 05:53 PM) Regular season schedule comes out tomorrow night! All I can say is WOOOOOOOOOOO

I hate Dalls but I do like this.



Thursday Feel Good: NFL Pro Bowl QB Helps Stranded Couple
By Noel Sheppard (Bio | Archive)
September 18, 2008 - 15:16 ET

During Monday's football game between Dallas and Philadephia, I commented in the Open Thread that despite hating the Cowboys, the post-game interview with quarterback Tony Romo instantly made me a fan of his.

Well, now there's something more to like about this fine young man, because on his way home from the airport after last Sunday's game, Romo actually stopped to help a couple with a flat tire.

The following story from the September 11 edition of the Fort Worth Star Telegram is guaranteed not only to put a smile on your face, but also will renew your faith that fame and fortune don't corrupt everyone they touch (photo courtesy FWST):


[A] couple of miles from the house, while driving on MacArthur Boulevard, the Whites had their own mini-disaster. A tire blew on the Mercury. Bill, luckily, managed to nurse his wounded ride off the street and into the lighted parking lot of a strip mall. [...]

"I don't know, a hundred cars, probably more, had to go by. Nobody was stopping," said Bill. "That's just kind of the way it is in today's world." [...]

"Bill was fooling with that tire, and I was standing beside the car watching him," Sharon said. "The next thing I know, a nice-looking young man, very well-dressed, but with something strange on his chin, he walked up, smiled, and said, 'Hey, you need some help?' " [...]

"He gets almost knocked cold in that game, and I read it took 13 stitches to close the cut, and then there's a long flight home [the Cowboys charter arrived at around 11 p.m.] and Tony's got to be dog tired, but he still was a good enough person to stop and help us," Bill said.
"Look, we're driving a 10-year old car that is sitting in a parking lot with a flat tire in the dead of night. He could tell by that we're nothing special. But here's a young man making millions of dollars, and he's got all this fame and glory, and he does this?"

The Whites couldn't thank Romo enough. "But if I ever had the opportunity, I'd also like to thank two other people. His mom and dad," Bill said. "They obviously raised him right. We've got kids about his age. We know how difficult it can sometimes be in this day and age." [...]

"After all this, what I realized is the athletic thing is Tony's gift, yet it goes beyond that," Bill said. "This was a good person we met. A good person with small-town values despite all the big-city fame and fortune."

Wow...that's all I can say.
