Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:19 AM) jets tried to trade up for tunsil but the price was too high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:10 PM) Tunsil will end up out of the league
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:12 PM) Lee isn't a pass rusher, hes a fast athletic LB. Hes probably their future at ILB, someone who can cover in the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:16 PM) jets said he's an ILB for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) If we could grab jack he would be an OLB
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) ttians have 3 picks in the next 13 picks

SoReALSoJetS Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:29 PM) Hi guys long time no talk hope everyone is well
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:46 PM) SMH
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:46 PM) JETS drafted QB Hackenberg PSU
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:47 PM) Should have picked Connor Cook.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:56 PM) I guess we are giving up on petty
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) Or giving up on geno
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) I said the rumor was they liked him more then cook
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:35 PM) I know I'm biased, but I've seen them both play. Cook is just better. Hackenberg had one good year. Cook has won more games, played in big games and won them....whatever, its done now so no sense on dwelling on it I guess. I just don't see the appeal in Hackenberg, nice kid, but I always thought he was really overrated. Oh well. I would have taken Kevin Hogan over Hackenberg.
azjetfan Icon : (30 April 2016 - 03:47 PM) From what I have read so far he had a great freshman year under Obrien in a pro style offense. At that point some considered him the next Andrew luck. Then Obrien left and they shifted to a spread under new HC who did poor job bringing in talent. He was also sacked and hit a million times. Might be shell shocked.
Smedsthejet Icon : (01 May 2016 - 06:17 AM) But Chan Gailey runs a spread system - still, I'm comfortable with the Hackenberg pick seeing as Gailey will develop the system to suit his strength... I'm just glad that we passed on Paxton Lynch in the first...we still desperately need Fitz to re-sign though
azjetfan Icon : (01 May 2016 - 07:14 PM) From my understanding the spread in college and the spread in NFL are not the same principals. I really think it was more of a talent issue and getting sacked 80 times in 2 years that did him in. I have no idea if he will make it. I don't follow college ball enough to to know. Theses are just things I read in articles.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 10:24 AM) I'm stoked about getting peake in the 7th round. that was a steal. he was a projected 3rd rounder. wonder what scared teams away
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:05 PM) Jets Invite Terron Beckham(Odell's Cousin) to Minicamp
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:06 PM) Listed as a RB had more bench presses and highest vertical of anyone this year. Hasn't played football since high school and apparently not very smart
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:16 PM) The Jets had Hackenberg as their #2 rated QB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:16 PM) Apparently, they loved Golf and tried to trade up. When that failed, their #2 QB was Hackenberg, they fell in love with his football IQ
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:17 PM) It would be a mistake to start him right away, hes a guy who needs development. He has the talent, and apparently he has good leadership skills and football IQ. His mechanics are off though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (10 May 2016 - 12:25 PM) Is this street thug Ryan Fitzpatrick ever gonna sign?
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:03 PM) Hey guy
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:03 PM) Is everyone excited for the Geno Smith Era?
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) Finally the kid can show us what he can do
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) I know Mr Jet is excited
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) I know Harlem is too
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) GO TEAM!
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 May 2016 - 10:40 AM) from the looks of it, nobody is excited lol
santana Icon : (18 May 2016 - 10:27 PM) I'm excited for geno smith. His jaw will survive the off season.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 May 2016 - 06:26 PM) not true, never know who might punch him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 May 2016 - 05:38 PM) f*** Geno smith
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 May 2016 - 05:39 PM) J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!!!
mgjetman Icon : (23 May 2016 - 02:01 PM) Geno really needs to go away. Double f**k Geno.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (23 May 2016 - 02:21 PM) Fitzpatrick said he wants to play for the jets and that he won't retire
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (23 May 2016 - 06:50 PM) This street thug Darron Lee hasn't signed yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 May 2016 - 05:32 PM) that damn dirty street thug

FAVRE'S ENTHUSIASM EASY FOR JETS TO CATCH

NASHVILLE - You can call it Favre Fever, and the New York Jets have caught it.

It is an infectious disease, and suddenly the rest of the NFL will be scrambling to find a cure.

http://www.nypost.co...ets/photo01.htm

It starts with the 39-year-old Hall of Fame quarterback chest-bumping teammates and jumping into the arms of a Damien Woody and high-fiving Jay Feely after a killer third-quarter touchdown pass to Laveranues Coles Laveranues Coles and generally acting like a high school senior.

Before you know it, they all feel it:

An offensive line that absolutely dismembers the Titans and unleashes the two-headed monster of Thomas Jones Thomas Jones (27-96) and Leon Washington (8-82, 2 TDs), 192 rushing yards in all, 4.9 yards per crack.

A defense anchored by Kris Jenkins that limits rookie gamebreaker Chris Johnson to 45 rushing yards.

A rookie tight end named Dustin Keller who catches six passes for 42 yards and draws three penalties against defenders that can't match up with his freakish skills.

A head coach who, with 10 days to prepare after beating the Patriots in Foxborough, is Mangenius again.

It didn't take a perfect game to end a perfect season, but this was damn close. The Jets dominated the trenches and kept the Titans on their heels all afternoon, thanks to a gameplan that Bill Parcells and the Super Bowl XXV Giants would have: a 40:30-19:30 time of possession advantage.

"I'm not gonna sit here and say that we've established ourselves as the best team in football," Brett Favre said after Jets 34, Titans 13. "All it says is that I think we beat the best team in football today - definitely if you go by record and the way that they've played, they had been the best team in football."

Had been. The Titans are 10-1 now. The Jets New York Jets are 8-3, and in the driver's seat for the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs.

Favre (6-for-6) shredded the Titans and demoralized their pass rush with his deadly quick passing game on the opening drive, and it was 7-0.

"I tried to get it to our playmakers underneath, and let 'em make plays," Favre said. "That first drive was really a tone-setter, if you will. It sure sent a message that we were capable of scoring against this defense."

The Titans, meanwhile, played as if the prospect of a perfect season was an albatross. Kerry Collins wasn't about to beat the Jets without a running game and his receivers dropped five passes in the first half, anyway.

Favre (25-32, 224 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT) recalled that the '96 Packers won a Super Bowl more by chemistry than talent alone.

"This team," Favre said, "I start sensing a belief: 'All right, we can get it done.' That's where it starts. When we stepped on the field, we were 14 points ahead before the ball was kicked off. I mean that from a mental standpoint. No one wanted to play us."

Favre's interception was his first in three games, an underthrow for Coles down the left sidelines. But his two-yard TD pass to Coles that made it 20-3 is why no one will want to play his Jets if he remains disciplined. Favre looked left for Keller first as he rolled right and wound up throwing across his body to Coles - vintage fearless Favre - in back of the end zone.

"When I threw it, I thought, 'This is gonna be tight,' " Favre said, "but I felt like it had a chance. I always called it the (ex-Packers coach) Mike Holmgren Syndrome: 'Oh, no, no, no, no, - GOOD!' "

Favre smiled now. "It was good today," he said.

Favre even got drilled early on by cornerback Cortland Finnegan when he lined up left in the Jets' version of the Wildcat. "It didn't hurt," Favre said. "I've been hit a lot harder, but no offense to him."

The first question for Favre in the interview room had been: "Where should the '72 Dolphins send the champagne?" now that their perfect season remains in the history books.

"I don't drink," Favre said with one those mischievous smiles. "Twelve years ago I . . ."

Favre and the Jets are driving the rest of the league to drink. Favre Fever is running rampant.
