New York Jets owner, Woody Johnson, named US ambassador to the UK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) I would do anything to get one of them as OC
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
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
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
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) :saythat:
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:13 AM) :trink39:
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 January 2017 - 01:32 PM) 4 years 29 mil 15 mil guarenteed. so 7.25mil a year for winters. a nice bargain. he took a hometown discount. seems like a good guy. well done winters and mac
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 January 2017 - 04:33 PM) Jets hire Dennard Wilson as defensive backs coach
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 January 2017 - 04:01 PM) Trump to name Jets' owner Woody Johnson U.K. ambassador
vjdbbq Icon : (19 January 2017 - 06:04 PM) Maybe Woody will take the Jets with him to London . PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 January 2017 - 11:13 AM) Mark Gastineau says he has dementia, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 07:54 AM) f***ing Pats again

Is it just me or is the defense playing better since he's been starting? His aggression and athleticism seems to be making the guys around him less concerned about who's on the field with them. But in two starts, he can be credited with two early impact plays that defined the momentum for the rest of the game.

His INT in Buffalo gave us the lead they never got back.
His sack and forced fumble sent the Rams game spiraling out of control.

Let's ask the tough question... would some games have turned out differently if he were in?

I immediately think of the Chargers game where Eric Smith stumbled over his own feet and allowed an easy touchdown.

Elam has been playing great!! One of my favorite players. I read an article a few weeks back (before the 92 yard Int) that Mangini had a real problem with his "football speed".

Now, I saw him EXPLODE on that strip sack...looked like he had football speed on that play. How he is in "space" (or coverage") must be Mangini's concern.

All I know is that this kid is a football player!!


And Amen how about an Eric Barton appreciation thread...the guy is having a very good year...and plays with passion and intensity every game!!

This man is a mad man when it comes to blitzing. With Elam starting we have 2 threats at safety that can get after the QB. Eric Smith looks none explosive when he blitzes, Elam has no fear at all and just does his thing. Without a doubt Elam is a better "football player" than Smith.

I hope Elam is starting the rest of the year, I'm not sure if hes the long term solution yet. But he may very well be the long term solution, and he has played very well the last 2 games. With him being able to attack QBs we can have Rhodes play more of a ball hawk position, Rhodes had a hell of a game yesterday also with almost 2 INT, he dropped 1. But he also had a nice dive PBU that resulted in Poteat getting the INT in the endzone.

This Jets defense is playing good right now, I hope they can continue the momentum and take out the Pats! This is the biggest game of the season, whoever wins this is on the driver seat to winning the AFC East. I'm definitely skipping out of my class early to watch the game!

I also like the timeing of Rhodes and Elam. When we would bring Smith from the safety blitz, he would always be late getting to the QB. Rhodes and Elam have this timing on thier blitz's....Elam faked the blitz, and still got back to the QB and killed him.....

the first time i saw him play.. i knew he was special, i even put him as starter on my Madden roster as soon as he became a jets.. it's his aggressive style that makes the rest of the jets more roughty

I agree. Props for Elam!!, we all knew this guy had skills over Eric Smith and finally we get to see it. Parcells tipped Mangini off on Elam. He's a good safety and has made huge plays in back to back weeks.

I like that he's making the most of his opportunity and it's hard to pick on the guy BUT he does look slow. I thought he was just big, but he's 210lbs. He looks explosive and is probably good making a play within 10 yards but I don't think he has coverage speed.

We could create an ellaborate plan where we switch Brett Favre for Abram Elam. He just might have to play a lil QB and people will think he got like, mad sun...

There's been so many games(not just this season but last season too especilly w/ that one Pats game) when E. Smith has had coverage in the end zone, falls on his ass, and the ball goes over his head for a TD. I'm glad Elam is playing.

Because Mangini is finally putting his best players out there rather than the ones who watch the most game film. Oh, and because Kerry Rhodes pushed Anquan Boldin into him haha.
