azjetfan Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:09 PM) You know what the Jets are due for?
azjetfan Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:09 PM) A good firing
azjetfan Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:09 PM) Fire Geno!
Mr_Jet Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:20 PM) Yes I highly recommend anybody looking to get into House of Cards to take a weekend to binge watch at least the first 2 seasons.
azjetfan Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:29 PM) I agree mr jet. The third was a little disappointing
azjetfan Icon : (10 June 2015 - 04:34 PM) Boss is what is what I am watching now. Not as good as house of cards but entertaining
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 03:53 PM) Eagles release absent Pro Bowl guard Mathis
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 03:54 PM) get it done big mac. instant upgrade at Guard for us
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) 33 years old.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) Im not against it but it would have to be a short term deal
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:37 PM) rumor has it he wanted a raise over his $5.5 million base this year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:39 PM) 33 is young for a guard. he's got at least 3-4 more years in him
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Mmmmm I disagree.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) I would go 2 year deal.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene

santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott

santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:59 PM) I feel fast.

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.
