ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6

Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) Vic Beasley is all speed. No moves, no power. Straight up the field. Could have some big games, then nothing in the next
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) If we don't get Mariota, we should be looking at Schreff or trading down, IMO.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) A lot of good edge rushers in this draft... I wouldn't want to take Dupree that high.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 AM) Until next time fellas!

Just an inspiring video to remind you of how awesome Curtis Martin really was...



When there is speak of a potential Jets-Giants Superbowl, I can't help but think about Curtis Martin. So I thought maybe you'd like to reflect on his years as a Jet as well.

Here's exactly why Curtis is my favorite Martin. Whenever given the chance to reflect on his success, he always praises his coach. How many times you hear a RB do that nowadays? He's definitely a throwback.

Did the Jets retire his number yet?

Nope. They should do him and Chrebet the same day. I'd do whatever I can to be at that game for the ceremony.

Definatly! At The Jets-Rams game, Chrebet was being interviewed at the ESPN Radio Tent and there were so many fans watching and cheering him on! I love Curtis, but Waynes probably the favorate Jet I ever got to watch play, and when he took the hit thats pic is in my sig, it felt like a member of my family was takin the hit!.

Honestly... I like Wayne Cherbet and I relaize his journey but he's not a hofer. I think the Jets should retire his number (through the team) but he's not national football league hall of famer.

Flame away!

I still see Curtis on Sunday - and Monday through Saturday as well. His 1999 McFarlane has pride of place on my bookshelf. Sometimes I pick him up & run him around my alarm clock & knock Bart Simpson out the way before jumping into the wife's bowl of pot pourri - its a pity that was the only bowl he was ever in!

Im not doubting you on that, hes like a Jets Bernie Williams, not a HOF, but you will never meet a Jets fan that doesnt love him. Thats why I always liked him, he was never drafted and played with the big dogs for 10 years. He was great, not tall, but faught like he was 6' 10.


But back to Curtis, I love how he was, like someone said before, he didnt talk about what he did to become great, but what others did to help him to become great. He is a living story of how you can litterally look death in the eyes(He was shot at point blank 8 times but the gun never went, and then the gun was pointed away from him and did shoot) and turned his life around and became the player and person we knew to love.

I also loved the story of how a kid sent Curtis a birthday party invitation when he was first drafted and Curtis actually went to the kids birthday party.

while there is no way Wayne gets into the NFL hall of fame .. he will forever be in the Jets HOF .. #80 has been my gameday jersey for the last 10 years .. and it will be for the next 10

Id love to see it retired .. but I know generaly the rule with the Jets is HOF to get the number retired .. but with #73 paving the way .. maybe another Jersey guy can get a little love

and as for Curtis .. there are not enough good things you can say about that guy .. on and off the field 100% class all the way .. watching him dive into the end zone on opening day a few years back ( same game Wayne made his concussion comeback BTW) .. but watching that game was a great afternoon in E Rutherford NJ .. his generosity still effects me on a daily basis .. when ever I stuff a dollar in the help the homeless jugs in NYC .. I think .. what would Curtis do

I also am planning to be in Canton when they induct Curtis

i mean, after watching Maynard13's sig over and over for like 10 minutes, it just made me realize how amazing Curtis Martin really was. A true throwback football player, and a great teammate. I feel like, had he been healthy and still running, the Jets would hands down be Super Bowl favorites.

What gets me is that I went to Penn State and was surrounded by Steelers fans constantly. Whenever I mentioned how great Curtis Martin is all I hear about is Jerome Bettis. Bettis was a scrub compared to Martin and he is twice his size! Whats more is how they don't even realize Martin was born and raised in Pitt and deserves to be praised there as a folk hero just like any other hometown hero. But since he didn't play there they don't care. What a joke. Jerome f***ing Bettis is gonna go into the hall the year before Curtis and he'll be compared to Steelers greats, but when Curtis goes in he'll be compared to Payton, Sanders, and Smith because guess what, he's number two all-time. Not to mention he's the only man to start his career with 10 straight 1,000 yard seasons, Sanders didn't have one his first year. Curtis is the type of player you can legitimately call a hero or a role model, not like most of the other jokers kids look up to today.

Curtis has not been out of the game long enough to be considered a throw back and it was just 2 weeks ago when I said in a post how Curtis would have a field day behind this Oline.he is not out of our minds at all. biggrin.gif
