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 : (20 August 2014 - 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) The JETS are #6 in the Forbes List for most franchise value
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) The Buffalo Jills are #31 and the Miami Dolphags are #16 respectively
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 07:00 PM) The JETS are worth $1.8 billion
jet-man Icon : (20 August 2014 - 10:03 PM) that's less than the clippers
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:07 PM) I'm very excited with the amount of preseason touchdowns the Jets have
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:21 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:22 PM) Calvin Pryor and Darrin Walls will start tomorrow
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) The SIMPSONS MARATHON has been on for almost 12 hours...
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 PM) Sanchez looks so much more confident and better in Chip's offense than he did with us
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:50 PM) EVERY SIMPSONS EVER!!!!!
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 07:10 AM) Sanchez is looking good for the eagles. Crazy how a good offense and the right system can make you look so much better. When you're put into a situatuon to succeed, magic happens. Happy for Sanchez, i think he needed a change just as much as the Jets did.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 08:02 AM) Preseason doesn't matter at all

As much as i like seeing the media constantly talking about the jets this coverage is getting insane. For christ sakes...Pete "i hate the jets" prisco has the jets ranked as the number 2 team in his latest version of his power rankings. ESPN has a new jets topic ever 10 mins. Everyone is talking up this team up. Super bowl talk!? its week 13 and people are putting this team into those conversations? Also over the last few seasons while living in tallahassee i would see just a few jets fans (5 tops) at the local sports bar but now the bar is filled with jet green favre jerseys. Are we the new bandwagon team this season? In some aspects it actually makes me feel really uncomfortable...I don't like it. Is it me or does all this exposure and attention kind of give an uneasy feeling. Now the jets not only have to focus on winning games they have to try and deflect the madness around them. There is to much hype! this team better stay grounded and just do what they have been doing. We are the jets...this just does not feel right.

We're just not used to being legitimate contenders. This is just the baggage that comes along with it.

Well here's how I see it.

Either we're legitimate superbowl contenders and being talked about all the time because we haven't had a good run like this in awhile.

or

Would you rather be a 4-12 team getting no attention except for when they ask who's the crappiest team in the NFL?

I'll take all the attention and hype every day, I could care less. Our team doesn't seem to be phased by it.

A team that has won ALL of their divisional road games AND has put together back to back wins at tough stadiums against a team we despise and that has been our daddy over the past few years and the other team was undefeated is not a team that will let a thing like media hype get to them.

Ill say this right now, I am not gonna guarantee or claim the Championship right now but whomever it is that beats this Jets team will be because they play their A game and not because the Jets f*** up because I honestly feel that when the Jets beat the Patriots, that made the team feel like they can go out and beat any team.

Also, the many veterans on this team starting with Favre will not allow media bullshit cloud the youngsters and letting them lose focus. If anything, its only gonna make this team hungrier for more!

I have been salivating for a season like this since the day I became a Jets fan...since the days I got laughed at when I wore my Adrian Murell jersey to High School during that 1-15 season. I mean I know the older heads here have suffered more than me (fan since 1994) but the feeling is the same....we crave this....and deep down, we love it!

Lets Go Jets!

While part of me is enjoying the added attention our Jets are getting, a bigger part of me wishes that we stay in the background & in the shadows. Every time this team seems to be in the forefront, we receive disappointment in the end. I like being the underdog. We were just 5.5 pt underdogs against Tennessee & look what happened. This team needs to be the underdog. It fuels the hunger to prove everyone wrong.

While I feel the team is hungry for more, I'm just afraid of the success going to anyone's heads. Most people say favre is responsible for this. He may be partially reasponsible, but this has been an all around team effort to got from 4-12 to our current 8-3 record. I don't like all the SB talk. Not until we actually get there. With the success we've had so far, the Brett favre experiment isn't a proven success yet. Without the SB win, it's a failure in my opinion if he doesn't plan on coming back next year at minimum as all of the confidence & swagger the team currently has will be gone if his successor isn't equally successful.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

Bro whether we make the superbowl or we don't, enjoy the ride.

I'm going to share something with you guys. I got a friend of mine (jets fan) who works in this factory. Anyways, he's got a few buddies he chills with at work. Ones a Steeler fan, ones a Colts fan, ones a Giants fan and He's a Jets fan. Now if you believe in fate this is our year. As I listed those teams thats the order in which they won it. He said to me after the Giants won thats it's our turn next. I told him last year that we'll never win with Chad and we got issues and then I told him, I guess it stops with us. However!!!, we traded for all these veterans. Paid 160 million or so all together. Acquired Brett Favre and now we are 8-3 and nearly at the top of our conference.

Do you believe in fate?

Can't remember the last time it felt this good to be a Jets fan. '98 was good, but then all fell apart on us. It is funny that the last time we went far into the postseason (1998), we trounced on tennessee during Week 12 back then too 24-3 winning by the same margin of victory.

You were questioning if it was fate?

Now that we are playing extremely well and garnering some attention you don't want it? This wasn't trying to call you out, but almost every Jets fan I know doesn't like the media nut riding us

I guess it just comes with the territory. The media will build them up so in the end they can say "see we told you they were good", or they can call them the biggest failure of all time. Either way they get a good story.

The bandwagon fans will make me sick. Luckily most of my time is spent in the Cleveland, OH area, and if people there haven't left the Browns yet, I dont think they ever will. Those are some loyal fans there.
But NJ is going to make me sick...I was the guy on the bus way back wearing the Jets starter jacket when everyone else had coyboys shit. I took the abuse when we were 1-15 with Kotite.

Maybe so but I seriously doubt Denver will make it to the AFC Championship game this year and even if they did they couldnt shut this team out in the second half.Let alone beat this team in the playoffs.Also we wouldnt have to watch the game in Denver either.
Whatever similarities to 98 so far will be completely different this year.

You think it is bad now?If this team won the Superbowl there would be millions of fake bandwagon fans everywhere.
My cousin is a big Denver fan and living in Maryland he doesnt see alot of Denver fans.When they won the Bowl in 98 all he said is how loads of people were suddenly wearing Denver apparel.He felt weird as hell.

Look at it this way though it is a good thing even if they are fake because it will suck in more true fans to our cursed franchise biggrin.gif

That's because the Jets have been so incosistent over the past few years and hardly put together consecutive winning seasons.

As JettingAway says, it's because the team is winning that they are getting respect, and that's how it should be.
We always got shit on because, let's face it, the team was never anything better than mediocre. Yes, we made the playoffs a few times but then there were the miserable seasons in between those appearances.
