Azjetfan is the nyjetsfan #1 pick
NJAzrael71 Icon : (14 May 2015 - 06:52 PM) Looks like Mo is going to get at least 40M guaranteed on his new deal. Mac reiterated that the team has allocated the funds for him.

santana Icon : (16 May 2015 - 10:45 PM) JIMMY G-SPOT
azjetfan Icon : (16 May 2015 - 11:05 PM) Santana could be the new ball boy for the Pats.
azjetfan Icon : (16 May 2015 - 11:05 PM) Since they fired the guys who are completely innocent
azjetfan Icon : (16 May 2015 - 11:06 PM) Santana can you deflate a bag of balls in under 90 seconds?
azjetfan Icon : (16 May 2015 - 11:11 PM) Colin Kaepernick is rumored to be back on the block. I wonder if his price has dropped.
santana Icon : (17 May 2015 - 03:45 PM) Eagles should get him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 May 2015 - 06:17 PM) What is the status in the contract with Mo?
azjetfan Icon : (19 May 2015 - 08:17 PM) He is under contract for this year and we have the option to franchise him next.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 May 2015 - 10:32 PM) THE KNICKS!!!
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 May 2015 - 10:33 PM) at #4
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 09:20 AM) BAN MR_JET
Mr_Jet Icon : (20 May 2015 - 11:58 AM) LOL. It's not where you pick, it's who you pick. Knicks fans should remember Russell Westbrook and Chris Paul were both #4 picks also.
RetireChrebet Icon : (20 May 2015 - 02:32 PM) Chan Gailey says Geno is the starter heading into the season. I believe Fitzpatrick is hurt and probably won't even make the roster due to injury otherwise Fitzpatrick should have got a fair shake.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 03:08 PM) egno did look really good in that last game.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 03:08 PM) he just makes too many dumb mistakes
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 04:23 PM) No excuses for Geno, we have a very good team and its up to the QB to not screw it up
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 May 2015 - 04:43 PM) lol go back to the color coded sanchez system rex had
azjetfan Icon : (20 May 2015 - 06:48 PM) RACIST!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 May 2015 - 11:50 AM) Sign Wilkerson damnit!!
azjetfan Icon : (21 May 2015 - 02:01 PM) They will. He isn't in any rush to get into a voluntary mini camp
azjetfan Icon : (21 May 2015 - 02:01 PM) They aren't pushing it either
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 May 2015 - 06:31 PM) WOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (26 May 2015 - 05:27 PM) FIRE IDZIK!
ganggreen2003 Icon : (26 May 2015 - 07:23 PM) JETS will cut Miliner cause like I've said since Day 1 he was a BUST!!!!
ganggreen2003 Icon : (26 May 2015 - 07:23 PM) MARK MY WORDS

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 May 2015 - 08:13 PM) KEEP MILLINER
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 May 2015 - 08:13 PM) DEMOTE RAUL
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 May 2015 - 08:19 PM) SIGN RIC FLAIR
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 May 2015 - 09:05 PM) If they give up on milliner already that just shows how dumb they are
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 01:06 PM) I would think they'd get rid of Kyle Wilson before Milliner.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:00 PM) Cutting Milliner would be retarded
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:00 PM) And so far, it seems like our new fo isn't retarded so I'm hopeful they keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:02 PM) Cromartie is pretty much on a 1 yr deal, let Milliner heal up slowly and maybe next season hes our starting CB again.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:07 PM) The Jets just made sure they weren't counting on a guy coming off a achilles injury to start at CB in a scheme that needs good CB play, its called trying to give your coach the pieces to succeed..
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:26 PM) Kyle Wilson is with the Saints now

QUOTE
Jets' Washington having breakout season
By Jane McManus
The Journal News November 21, 2008

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - After Leon Washington was drafted by the Jets in the fourth round in 2006, the running back would pay attention to Curtis Martin, even though the veteran was injured.

He'd watch Martin during position meetings as he carefully took notes so neat and precise that Washington was amazed.


OAS_AD('ArticleFlex_1'); "When he takes his notes, he has the best handwriting I've ever seen," Washington said. "It goes to show how much detail he puts into everything he does in life."

Washington's notes aren't perfect yet, but he got the overall message. Now in his third season with the Jets, Washington is known for practicing just as hard as he plays. The running back has been improving field position and gaining key yards all season. Washington last week was named AFC special-teams player of the week after the Jets beat the Patriots for sole possession of first place in the AFC East.

That's only one of the plaudits Washington has received this season. He leads the NFL in combined yards with 1,475 and broke the team record for career kickoff returns for touchdowns with his fourth. He has also had some heads-up plays for the Jets, such as making sure he was out of bounds to stop a rolling ball on a kickoff return. Due to a little-known rule, the Jets got the ball on the 40-yard line.

"He's a great player,'' running back Thomas Jones said. "He's gifted, he's got great speed, great vision; he can do it all, whether he's running the ball, catching the ball or returning. He's a great player, and we're glad to have him on the team."

Consider then, that Washington is doing this all at 5-foot-8 and 202 pounds. There is a huge variety in an NFL lineup when it comes to sizes and shapes - offensive linemen look very different than cornerbacks - but even taking that into account, Washington could be at a disadvantage.

"Yeah, if you look at Leon's stature as far as his weight, size and height, you'd say by NFL standards, especially for the running-back position, he can't survive," fullback Tony Richardson said. "But the size of his heart is probably bigger than half the guys' in this room."

Washington, who came out of Florida State after growing up in Jacksonville, said he has always refused to see his size as a drawback.

"The best guys that played this game, some of the guys like Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith, they were 5-10 and shorter, so I can use that to my advantage," Washington said.

During the offseason after his second year in the league, Washington went up 25 pounds on all his lifts and took the Jets' offseason training crown. And he isn't afraid to block. In the first Patriots game this season, Washington got in between Brett Favre and Adalius Thomas before the linebacker ultimately sacked Favre with Washington hanging on.

"That's Leon," Richardson said. "I'll put him in a fight with anybody, especially on the football field because he's going to give you everything he has with his ability."

Where other guys are loud and boisterous off the field, Washington treats the Florham Park facility as an office - he's all business. He takes this seriously, and on game day, that's the way it needs to be.

"When he gets out there you see that passion and that excitement he brings," Jets center Nick Mangold said.

For Mangini, who used to get on Washington for fumbles and missed plays in Washington's rookie year, it has been good to see him come into his own this season.

"It's really satisfying to see," Mangini said. "He's one of the guys that came in with me and to see his growth and development is great."
