Chaos Icon : (14 February 2015 - 04:00 PM) no rush to cut them now
Chaos Icon : (14 February 2015 - 04:01 PM) they both cost 125k to keep now and are not guaranteed a roster spot. they can get cap savings by removing them later
Chaos Icon : (14 February 2015 - 04:01 PM) 125k each. 250k total.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 February 2015 - 05:19 PM) I think they should keep Babin, he was actually our best pass rusher last season despite 2 sacks. He had a lot of QB pressures in limited snaps.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 February 2015 - 05:20 PM) There are some good edge rushers available in FA, I hope we sign one

ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 February 2015 - 11:23 PM) When the hell will the JETS get it that Pace SUCKS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 February 2015 - 11:23 PM) Babin being brought back isn't a big deal but Pace really?
azjetfan Icon : (16 February 2015 - 12:43 AM) There is no guarantee either will be on the roster opening day. This gives the Jets the most options in FA and the draft. For once I would love to see Jet fans not jump before the need
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 February 2015 - 12:39 PM) I'd cut Pace, we easily can upgrade over him in FA
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 February 2015 - 12:40 PM) Babin I'd keep , he had more QB pressures in way less snaps than Pace. And is cheap.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 February 2015 - 11:27 PM) its time to bring this back..........

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 February 2015 - 03:32 PM) Jets met with Josh McCown
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (18 February 2015 - 06:25 PM) Please no
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 February 2015 - 12:28 PM) Reports say Jets to go hard after CJ Spiller. Bring him aboard, he'll be a good signing. Was a stud in Chan's offense and RBs don't cost much
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (20 February 2015 - 12:09 PM) Saw that the Bills are meeting with Spiller and may sign him before FA.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (20 February 2015 - 12:10 PM) if that happens, I think the Jets should go after Shane Vereen. Nice pass catching option out of the backfield, only 25.
Smedsthejet Icon : (20 February 2015 - 04:06 PM) Think Vereen would be a great option...I thought he was one of their best and most valuable performers during the playoffs and we need a back who can contribute in the passing game as well. Jets have been missing that piece since LT retired
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 February 2015 - 01:41 PM) Mariota ran a 4.52
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 February 2015 - 01:41 PM) Fastest for a QB since RG3

2JBallar01 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 04:54 PM) @RapSheet: The #Packers released LB AJ Hawk, their former first-round pick. It saves them $3.5M this year, which comes off their cap
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 05:13 PM) @AdamSchefter 58s59 seconds ago
Jaguars expected to hire former Jets GM John Idzik as a consultant, per source.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 06:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
ganggreen2003 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 06:52 PM) AJ Hawk getting cut means that the Packers are going to try real hard to lock up Cobb
ganggreen2003 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 06:52 PM) and the Lions released oft injured Reggie Bush
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 07:29 PM) The Packers had the cap space to lock up Cobb regardless
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 07:30 PM) But Bryan Bulaga is also a FA< so they have 2 important guys to re-sign. I think the OT is more important for Rodgers
ganggreen2003 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 09:17 PM) 22 days 21 hours 27 min till FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 10:06 PM) If we get rid of Harvin, Kevin White looks like a nice replacement.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 10:06 PM) 6'3 runs a 4.35 and had elite production in college
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:38 PM) NOT SO BREAKING NEWS: WINTER SUCKS

Best of NFL is in NYC
Start spreading the news. The Giants and Jets have climbed to the top of the league.

By MARK CRAIG, Star Tribune

Last update: November 24, 2008 - 11:50 PM

Giants owner John Mara and Jets owner Woody Johnson gave the media a tour of Meadowlands Stadium last Thursday.

They were happy to report that the 82,500-seat stadium is 60 percent complete, ahead of schedule and "on budget," according to Meadowlands Stadium CEO Mark Lamping. And by "on budget," they mean the stadium shouldn't cost a nickel more than the $1.6 billion that was earmarked for its 2010 debut.

The cost of the stadium and the ensuing hike in ticket prices have been a prickly issue for the two teams and their longtime fans during these difficult financial times.

"It's certainly something we're concerned about and we're very sensitive to," Mara told reporters. "That's why we try to come up with as many different pricing options as possible, and we're trying to be flexible and work with people in terms of payment scheduling."

Johnson also claimed to feel the common man's financial pain. He did fight back the tears long enough to assure the peasants that they will be "shocked and awed by the stadium" and "well-rewarded for their financial commitment."

Then, almost as if on cue, the Giants and Jets hit the road, became the two best teams in the NFL and jump-started talk of a New York "Subway Super Bowl."

The Giants (10-1) proved they're still the best team in the NFL by proving that Arizona is only the best team in the pitiful NFC West. The 37-29 road victory was even more impressive because the Giants did it without their best running back (Brandon Jacobs) and their best receiver (Plaxico Burress).

"It'll work out," Cardinals nose tackle Darnell Dockett said. "We'll see the Giants again."

With one more victory or a 49ers loss, the Cardinals will win their division and earn their first home playoff game since 1947 (that's not a typo, folks). But any rematch with the Giants would be on the road, which isn't good for a team that's 1-6 in the Eastern time zone under coach Ken Whisenhunt.



The Jets, meanwhile, raised their record to 8-3 by handing host Tennessee its first loss of the season. The 34-13 rout was a credit to the Jets' aggressive offseason acquisitions. And we're not only talking about the Brett Favre trade. The Jets also rebuilt their defensive line around nose tackle Kris Jenkins and their offensive line around left guard Alan Faneca and right tackle Damien Woody.

The Jets ran for 192 yards while holding the Titans to 45 yards rushing. If that's not a head-turner for the entire league, it should be. Favre + a running game + a solid defense = Look out AFC.

"We want to be taken seriously," Jenkins said.

"This puts us in good position," Favre added.

Check and check.

The Jets are tied with the Steelers for the second-best record in the division. But the Jets have an easier road to earning that No. 2 seed and first-round bye. Their remaining opponents are a combined 23-32, while Pittsburgh's remaining opponents are a combined 35-20. The Steelers' next four games are at New England (7-4), home against Dallas (7-4), at Baltimore (7-4) and at Tennessee (10-1). Ouch.

Chances are the Titans will earn home-field advantage in the AFC. They play at Detroit (0-11), Cleveland (4-7) and at Houston (4-7) over the next three weeks. Hello 13-1.

But even if the Jets have to go back to Tennessee in the playoffs, who cares? They manhandled the Titans from the get-go Sunday.

After Tennessee went three-and-out, the Jets drove 76 yards in nine plays and scored a touchdown on a defense that had allowed only 23 points in the first quarter all season.

"That first drive was a tone-setter," said running back Thomas Jones, who capped it with a 10-yard TD reception.

It also set the tone for the entire AFC heading into the final five weeks. And, oh yeah, it probably made selling tickets to Meadowlands Stadium a whole lot easier.
