santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) Gotta fix that
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:35 PM) Is anyone else as concerned as I am about the secondary?
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:36 PM) I know it's preseason and all but even with Milliner in on the first game we gave up a TD on the first drive to the Colts
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:37 PM) Patterson looked like me out there and Wilson got torched last night
Smedsthejet Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:26 PM) Concerned about the right side of the OLine too - too many penalties and Giacomini wasn't that much better than against the Colts when he was poor
SackExchange71 Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:31 PM) Imo i still think howard is better then giacomini..Wish they never let him walk.Giacomini had alot of flags in seattle also
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:33 AM) Howard recieved a huge contract in Oakland. Way over his actual value.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 10:08 AM) So did we make a trade for a CB yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:51 PM) Milliner did suffer a high ankle sprain, that sucks. could linger all year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:52 PM) I think Patterson sucked vs the Colts because he was injured, which he always is.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:49 PM) As much as people criticized Tannanbaum for spending too much. It's starting to look like Idzik is going to be too cheap.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:52 PM) You get what you pay for and when you let quality players go because you don't want to pay them, this is what happens. You're left with scrub players.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 07:55 PM) I'm still on board with the Idzik plan. Even with Revis and Revis we still are not going to the SB this year. But the down time sucks. If Milliner comes back healthy by week 3 or so we should be fine.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 08:18 PM) Regardless of our SB chances this year or next year. If Idzik keeps acting like a cheapskate and continues to let quality players go, we won't have to worry about winning much of anything this decade.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) He wants to build through the draft. Not blow the bank on FA. I get what your saying but there is a balance and right now we are not one or two pieces away.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:00 PM) It's not about being one or two pieces away. It's about keeping the good pieces you have and building upon that.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:04 PM) But there is no sense in trying to build through the draft if he's only going to end up letting the good players he picks up go in FA after a few years. All because he wants to do things on the cheap.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) The Revis deal sucks but $16 million was too much for a CB and once he was gone he was not coming back.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 01:00 PM) Eh. I think with our current cap situation we will be able to retain guys like Wilkerson and whomever we want to keep. We are in a good position right now.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 02:00 PM) landed revis abck. got DRC, nope we take patterson who got owned and always hurt. milner always hurt. 3rd round CB done for season. were gonna get passed on all day
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:46 PM) I'm not saying Idzik is perfect. I just like the direction we are heading. It's going to take some patience.
RetireChrebet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:27 PM) I like how our lack of secondary is the hot topic right now. The bigger issue is we still will not be able to throw the ball. We are not going to do much of anything regardless until we get a QB. Sorry for being so negative just my honest opinion.
RetireChrebet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:29 PM) With that said I think our running game with CJ and Powell will be top 10 or somewhere around there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:35 PM) i have faith that if geno messes up that vick can come in and do well. but i have 0 faith in our secondary right now which has been our strong point for the past 4 years or so
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:35 PM) I agree 115. but the one thing is Rex has done some good things in the past with shitty DBs and still had a solid D going back to his years in BAL
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:37 PM) Corey Ivy CB
36 Jim Leonhard SS/PR
43 Haruki Nakamura FS
25 Evan Oglesby CB
20 Ed Reed FS
22 Samari Rolle CB
39 Daren Stone FS
41 Frank Walker CB
31 Fabian Washington in 2008
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 PM) The JETS are #6 in the Forbes List for most franchise value
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 PM) The Buffalo Jills are #31 and the Miami Dolphags are #16 respectively
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 PM) The JETS are worth $1.8 billion
jet-man Icon : (Yesterday, 10:03 PM) that's less than the clippers

4-GET THE FUTURE & ENJOY THE RIDE


NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Every few weeks, there is a question for Brett Favre about whether this will be his first and last season with the JetsNew York Jets . It has become a rite of autumn around here, the way it was a rite of winter for the past several years in Green Bay.

It is an exercise in futility, because the football world and probably a good part of the free world knows by now that Favre doesn't know, and won't know until months after the season ends, and even when he thinks he knows, he doesn't ever really know.

But the main reason all the Brett-Are-You-Coming Back? questions should end once and for all is we should all do what the 39-year-old quarterback is doing, and that is concentrate on the season that is unfolding in front of us, a season that suddenly has a chance to be magical, one year after the Super Bowl XLII Giants.

We should all sit back and enjoy the ride Favre is beginning to give us, a ride that started off as gut-wrenching as the Coney Island Cyclone and appears on its way to exhilarating by the time it stops, whenever that may be.

Favre beat the Patriots in Foxborough. Favre beat Bill Belichick in overtime. The Jets season New York dreamed about when he showed up doesn't end there. It begins there.

A year ago, the Jets were the football Titanic. Today in Nashville, they can announce themselves as titans by beating the 10-0 Titans.

Favre cannot do this by himself at this age any more than he ever did it by himself when he won his Super Bowl 12 seasons ago. Kris Jenkins, the Jets' Albert Haynesworth, is the best defensive lineman the Jets have had since Joe Klecko. Calvin Pace gets after the quarterback. Kick returner Leon WashingtonLeon Washington gets Favre the best possible field position. Alan Faneca and Damien Woody have added toughness and experience to the offensive line. Thomas JonesThomas Jones is running young again. Dustin Keller is becoming Favre's Dallas Clark. No one dares throw on Darrelle Revis. Kerry Rhodes is on the brink of stardom.

But make no mistake: Favre is the straw that stirs the drink.

He stirs it with his Everyman persona, the boy forever inside him, refusing to leave, wherever he is, whatever he is doing. He stirs it with how much he cares about his teammates. He stirs it with his unyielding will to win, even now.

Here's what Favre has now been able to do: He has made his teammates believe. Especially his receivers. Believe they can do something impossible like David Tyree did in the Super Bowl. He makes all his teammates believe they will find a way to win in the fourth quarter, or in overtime, come hell or Bill Belichick.

A lot can happen from here to January. Favre's body may yet remind him no one gets to remain forever young. He may revert to throwing those reckless interceptions.

But for now, give the geezer credit. The heat has been hot here, but Favre never thought about getting out of the kitchen. There was that embarrassing meet-the-press grilling over whether he had surrendered Packers state secrets to then-Lions general manager Matt Millen and very possibly coaches eavesdropping before his former team's 48-25 victory. There was all the commotion over having to learn a new offense and reaching common philosophical ground with coach Eric Mangini and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. This has been a very public trial by error for him, under the unforgiving, blinding New York microscope, and Favre has never blinked.

There never was any danger he would tarnish his Hall of Fame legacy, at least in the eyes of the majority. But he risked the worst kind of ending, in the worst possible place for it to end the way it ended for Willie Mays in his twilight. He risked the ridicule of a town without pity.

Look at him now. Not Messier just yet. Not the Messiah just yet. But maybe. Maybe one of our New York Titans.

If favre wins a SB here it would ad to his legacy and he might be known as the best QB of all time. even w/o winning it he will still be known as one of the 3 best all time and is a HORer no matter what.

That article right there says it all with no punches pulled, that just pumped me up a little bit more and knowing the Sky is the Limit for this team with how we just have looked great in this 5 game winning streak the Oakland game was the turn of the corner and now we are in a full on sprint to the finish with the last 5 games of the season the JETS are looking stronger and moving like a well oiled machine and Favre is pressing on the accelerator....
