santana Icon : (Today, 05:34 PM) I have elevator video of you giving out high fives
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 06:03 PM) Thank you for the warm words GG. I appreciate the thought!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:04 PM) any of u guys know how to size a NBA jersey?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:05 PM) Like im a XL so when I get a NFL jersey I get a L
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:05 PM) Im getting it for a friend
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:13 PM) SIGN WILL HILL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:14 PM) There are some decent FAs I hope we go after, we have like $48 mil in cap space, plus more once we get rid of Chris Johnson and Calvin Pace.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 08:56 PM) Lol for someone who doesn't like me and doesn't pay attention to what I have to say, GG sure loves talking about me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:57 PM) We just need a QB to throw to them
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:25 PM) if we release Harvin, we won't get him back most likely. Hes the most dynamic offensive player we have had in a while.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:26 PM) Plus he has no guaranteed money so we can release him at any time for no cap hits. Maybe they can rework his contract, but I hope we keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:48 PM) I think he does restructure though, can't imagine Brick wanting to play elsewhere. I see him as a career Jet
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:59 PM) I think that Oday would be fine as a starter for one spot, he showed promise. Plus it would be a competition between Oday, Winters, and Dozier.

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
