Geno injured, IK cut, Amish Rifle starting - http://nyjetsfan.com...showtopic=38773
santana Icon : (14 August 2015 - 09:02 PM) fitz is probably the best qb the jets have had in the last 3/4 years
santana Icon : (14 August 2015 - 09:02 PM) depressing
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) depressing but true
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) Fitzpatrick can play at a average level, the Jets have had QB play on the below average level
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) Fitzpatrick not being mentioned as a NFL worst starter is a upgrade for this team
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:14 PM) He could throw for 25 TDs if he starts every game
Chaos Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:18 PM) 2009 with a Favre and Rex pairing could have been special
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 August 2015 - 09:20 PM) ok so who thinks geno has played his last game of his JETS career?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 August 2015 - 09:23 PM) I honestly think his JETS career is knocked out like that right hand by IK
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 August 2015 - 08:50 PM) why the hell can't the JETS ever get it right
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 August 2015 - 08:50 PM) are we doomed for all eternity?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 August 2015 - 01:56 PM) kerly might be losing his job to a younger WR
GreenDude Icon : (18 August 2015 - 06:34 PM) We just signed Matt Flynn
santana Icon : (18 August 2015 - 07:02 PM) FLYNNNNSANITYYY
santana Icon : (18 August 2015 - 07:02 PM) hype hype hype
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Which receiver is Kerley losing his job to?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Kerley is still gonna be our slot receiver. Devin Smith is a outside WR, deep threat and hes gonna be out for a bit.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:32 PM) though Brandon Marshall likes playing in the slot at times and does work there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 01:27 PM) he's apparently battling (and losing to) enuiwa
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 01:28 PM) enunwa^
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:26 PM) I haven't heard about that
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:28 PM) I read how kerley has been uncover able one on one

Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:12 AM) http://nypost.com/20...ricks-of-trade/
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:12 AM) sounds like the jets think kerly is too small for what they want
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:13 AM) if enunwa is our 3rd WR that gives us 3 starting Wrs over 6-2. compared to the 5'7 kerly.
RetireChrebet Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:32 PM) Hopefully enunwa pans out. The jets need to start catching talent in he late rounds like most successful teams do.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (21 August 2015 - 03:05 PM) MT did for us
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 06:49 PM) Well it's only pre season but I don't enjoy watching them walk right over our defense
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) Looks like nothing has changed from the last 5 years. Our offense is still trash
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Damn petty has a rocket arm!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:54 PM) Kellen Davis sucks
Mr_Jet Icon : (22 August 2015 - 12:40 PM) Bryce Petty looked really good last night.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 04:56 PM) He took some big steps from week one. There is no question. If he continues to progress like that we may be chanting for him sooner than expected. I love his arm.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 06:56 PM) Sanchez looks like Drew Bree's today
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 August 2015 - 01:24 PM) WOOOOOOOO Ric Flair!
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) The guy in the fantasy league who said we're scared of Santana... is clearly santana.
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) just sayin
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) im only half serious
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:30 AM) Also i suspect that santana
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:30 AM) might be santana
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:35 PM) Tough draw for Liverpool
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:21 PM) Suarez second best in Europe... pretty good

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.
