Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:10 AM) Jets just announced first 12 players to be released:
Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:10 AM) T. J. Graham, Saalim Hakim, Austin Hill, DeVier Posey, Jonathon Rumph (WRs), Matt LaCosse (TE), James Brewer, Dalton Freeman (OL), Bryan Johnson (LB), Javier Arenas, Curtis Brown, Keith Lewis (DBs)
Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:11 AM) A little surprised that Posey is gone in this first batch of moves, but then we did have a glut of WRs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (30 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Any word on Leonard Williams injury?
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:49 PM) He will be ready week 1. Just a sprain
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 10:33 AM) so we whooped the giants ass pretty badly
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 10:38 AM) bills cut fred jackson
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:29 PM) We got lucky with Williams
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:30 PM) Hes looked like a beast as well, so we need him healthy. Hes gonna be a future all pro
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Our offense can be competent this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:33 PM) Zac Stacy was a good add
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:46 PM) I'm surprised Freeman was cut, I thought he was a solid backup center. Guess they like Wesley Johnson better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:58 PM) our offense is passable. we should put up 14-17 a game average
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:58 PM) should be enough for our Defense. our d-line is nasty with wilk, rich, snacks, and now williams
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:59 PM) out MLBs get picked on in coverage though. davis had a rough game
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:59 PM) our Cbs are way too good. cro revis and skrine. plus mcdougle looked solid. when milliner comes back, him being a dime back could be huge too
Jetsman05 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 02:24 PM) 17 points a game is "passable"? If we average 17 a game this season, we won't win more than 5 ball games.
Jetsman05 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 02:24 PM) Needs to be 20+
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 05:33 PM) Our offense should be better than its been in years
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 05:34 PM) which wouldn't take much
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:03 PM) another ex jet going to the pats http://theredzone.or...ms/Default.aspx
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:04 PM) our defense should allow an average of less then 14 a game IMO. If we can average 17 a agme I think we can win 9-10
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:25 PM) Jace Amaro was put on IR, torn labrum.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:26 PM) That sucks, I was looking forward to him at TE
ROBJETS Icon : (01 September 2015 - 07:24 PM) Labrum tear....definitely out for the year. Its not a bad surgery. I used the sling for about a week before I ditched it completely. Supposed to use it for a full 6 weeks. You can get away without it but just have to be careful not raising or moving your arm much and no lifting of pretty much anything. As far as fully healing ....6 mon ths minimum but for lifting heavy and full contact sports I wouldnt trust 6 months
ROBJETS Icon : (01 September 2015 - 07:31 PM) Still not that bad of a surgery on a pain scale. after a few days it mostly just aches like hell. ice and keeping your arm still is important. sleeping is major hard for the first 3 weeks or so. You wake up in pain a god bit. Id be dreaming and jerk my right arm up or move it wrong or lay on it wrong and wake up in major pain. still I liked t better without the sling than being completely immobile with one arm and healed just fine. He will come back from it fine
ganggreen2003 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 08:37 PM) sucks we lost Amaro for the season
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:34 AM) http://sport.woot.co...ef=gh_sp_6_wp_3
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:47 AM) No suspension for Brady, what a joke
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 12:26 PM) I don't think it is a joke but f*** him.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:15 PM) f*** new england
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:15 PM) he still was behind the balls being deflated
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) he authorized those 2 employees to do that to the footballs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) he is a diva so f*** that classless organization
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:21 PM) it's especially sickening living in the middle of CHEATriot country and listening to these assclowns up here make excuses for their POS QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:21 PM) and that classless organization

Jets, Giants becoming must-see TV
Neil Best
November 25, 2008 Urgent memo to CC Sabathia: It's not always like this around here!

Seriously, it's a baseball town, always was, always will be. The NFL usually is what we watch in these parts just to avoid talking to relatives during the holidays.

Even the last time we had two teams this good, in the autumn of 1986, Big Town still was basking in the afterglow of a World Series winner.

Now? The last major-league games played here were two months ago Friday, and the free-agent buzz so far has been limited mostly to the $140-million offer sitting on Sabathia's to-do list.

You want numbers to illustrate this? We have numbers:

Even before Sunday's twin- killings of first-place opponents, the Jets and Giants were first and fourth in the league in local ratings increase compared with that point in 2007, rising 33 and 13 percent, respectively. (The Falcons and Titans ranked second and third.)

The Giants were averaging 14.4 percent of homes in the New York market and the Jets 12.6, averages that will rise after Sunday, when the teams scored ratings of 18.2 and 15.0.

Not that New York suddenly has become Pittsburgh or Green Bay. The Giants' and Jets' local market ratings still ranked 28th and 31st overall.

(Only the Raiders were lower than Gang Green.)

But when you factor in the percentage increases, and the fact that New York often trails other cities for sports ratings because of its diversity and the sheer size of the market, the figures are impressive.

Through last week, the Giants and Jets rank first and second in average number of households watching in home markets, at 1.068 million and 938,000, respectively.

Numbers such as those get the attention of TV networks when it comes to national appeal.

The Giants have been a consistent draw recently, for example attracting 22.3 million viewers in Week 8 against the Steelers and 23.3 million the next Sunday against the Cowboys.

But the big change nationally is the Jets, who suddenly matter, thanks mostly to their quarterback. The eye-opener came in Week 2, when the slot featuring Patriots-Jets attracted 25.4 million viewers, the most for a September Sunday game since at least 1991.

The Jets' appeal was illustrated by CBS protecting the Titans game from being moved to prime time - a call made in early October, before anyone knew either team would be this good. (Fox protected Sunday's Giants game against the Cardinals and this weekend's against the Redskins.)

How would the league and NBC feel about a Jets-Giants Super Bowl? Fine. The ratings for the Subway Series in 2000 were mediocre, but the Super Bowl mostly is matchup-proof. Even if it weren't, the Jets and Giants have enough of a national profile to draw casual viewers.

The real intrigue is what will happen in the conference finals if the Giants (probable) and Jets (possible) both host championship games.

Giants Stadium cannot stage two games Jan. 18, so one must move to Saturday or Monday.

The NFL has not announced what it would do, but a logical solution would be to leave the AFC game in its scheduled evening slot Sunday and move the NFC to Monday night.

Unlike CBS, Fox does not feature highly rated entertainment programming on Mondays, making a move easier to execute.

Saturday is problematic because viewership tends to be lower that night, and there might be competitive concerns for the team that played in the divisional round the previous Sunday.

We'll see. Our (temporary) football town would consider that an excellent problem to have.
