Azjetfan is the nyjetsfan #1 pick
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:20 PM) Tom Pettys brother
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:22 PM) Jets should take Collins with one of their 7th rounders if there
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:22 PM) He has more upside for a 7th rounder than anyone else
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:22 PM) He can start right away at RT
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:29 PM) He said he won't sign
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:32 PM) so he doesn't want to be drafted?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:33 PM) If Collins doesn't get drafted, he can't enter next years draft. He can only if he is drafted and sits out. So I guess he has to go undrafted
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:41 PM) going undrafted makes the most sense for collins
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:41 PM) but for teams, drafting him and dealing with his holdout makes more sense
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:19 PM) Zac Stacy was traded to us for our 7th
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:21 PM) Jets also drafted a NT with our other 7th
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:21 PM) 6'4 330 DL who is very strong
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:25 PM) zac stacy for a 7th
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:25 PM) well can't complain about that
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:29 PM) So we have 4 rbs now
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:31 PM) still would have rather taken a runner on collins but i can't complain with depth
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:32 PM) i mean they can't expect to carry 4 rb though no?
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:50 PM) Collins would have been a waste. He would not have signed. At least we have something to show for our pick. Worst case scenario is we trade or release one of our backs.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:56 PM) I know it's hard to tell without seeing a win loss record yet but this regime seems really on point.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:56 PM) For the first time in my life I can say I feel comfortable with the people making the decisions.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:57 PM) I was close with Parcells but he seemed like a short term fixer and didn't care about the long term
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 06:57 PM) SUCK FOR THE DUCK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 06:57 PM) .......oh wait
santana Icon : (03 May 2015 - 01:13 AM) Well that was a disappointment
Chadforpresi... Icon : (03 May 2015 - 01:24 AM) I like getting Stacy for our 7th rounder, assuming he can handle the fact he won't be a feature back (yikes)
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:31 AM) I like the trade, hes a quality back and adds more depth to our backfield
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:32 AM) Macc has pretty much killed it this offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:32 AM) He has turned this roster around, he has added talent and competition all over.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:33 AM) We still aren't great at QB, but our overall football team is good. We have a realistic shot at making a playoff run
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:33 AM) We may have the best defense in football. We have a great DL and secondary, that is gonna be tough on offenses when you can stop the run, pressure the QB, and blanket the receivers
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:23 PM) ok now it's time for this team to take all this talent and do something anything below a 10-6 season will be a disappointment
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:24 PM) the only still glaring issue is QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:25 PM) we got the WR problem solved, we got probably one of the best Defenses in the game and we have addressed the OL but QB will still be the glaring issue
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 09:34 AM) jets cleaning house
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:57 PM) I'm excited about this year. Could be a good year for the Jets.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:32 PM) weird how they cleaned house in the scouting department after such a successful draft and off-season so far
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) I assume they didn't bring much to the table
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:41 PM) Have to clean the table
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) Fuck the rangers
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) face off dominated holtby gtfo
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 PM) La'el Collins is meeting with Rex Ryan tonight
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:31 AM) FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH!
Chaos Icon : (Today, 05:41 AM) Damn that'd make up for the Bills not having a first rounder
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 10:59 AM) They didn't sign him yet. It's just a visit.
santana Icon : (Today, 01:49 PM) Uefa time

BEEFING UP HAS JETS LIVING LARGE
BIG LIFT: Adding free agent Damien Woody was part of GM Mike Tannenbaum's plan to add some size. That strategy, and the addition of Brett Favre, has the Jets atop the AFC East.

SHORTLY after last sea son ended, Jets owner Woody Johnson joined head coach Eric Mangini in general manager Mike Tannenbaum's office to assess what went wrong in 2007 and what changes needed to be made for 2008.



http://blogs.nypost....ts-jets-in.html

The trio came to an agreement on what they were looking for in new acquisitions: the bigger, the better.

So the Jets went out and grabbed several big players, adding defensive lineman Kris Jenkins in a February trade, then signing offensive linemen Alan Faneca and Damien Woody and linebacker Calvin Pace as soon as free agency began.

The moves cost big bucks ($63 million guaranteed) and came with some big risks, but 11 games into the season they are paying off - big time.

Sunday in Tennessee the plan hatched in Tannenbaum's office was on full display. Faneca controlled Albert Haynesworth; Woody opened huge holes for Thomas Jones and Leon Washington ; Jenkins blew up the middle of the Titans' offense; and Pace registered a sack.

The Jets later added a big star to that group with the August trade for Brett Favre, the biggest move of all, but it was the planning last winter that started the team on this path to re-energizing a fan base that watched the crosstown Giants get all the glory last year while the Jets won a measly four games.

The Extreme Makeover - Gang Green New York Jets Edition - began with Johnson opening his checkbook and Tannenbaum and Mangini identifying what was missing last year.

"We wanted to make changes, starting up front," Tannenbaum said yesterday.

Last year started poorly for the Jets with the Pete Kendall trade to the Redskins after a contract dispute. Kendall's absence left a void not only physically but emotionally in the locker room.

Faneca (6-feet-5, 307 pounds) has filled both of those voids. He started slowly, but has grown more comfortable with each week. Tannenbaum also credits Faneca with aiding the development of third-year tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson and center Nick Mangold, the players who bookend him on the line.

Woody (6-3, 335) represented a risk because of his limited experience at right tackle, but the Jets repeatedly ran to his side Sunday, including on Washington's 61-yard score.

Jenkins (6-4, 349) has been huge in every way. His presence has transformed the Jets defense.

Tannenbaum complemented these moves by adding fullback Tony Richardson, who has helped the running game and provided leadership in the locker room, and by trading up in the draft to grab Dustin Keller, the tight end who has become Favre's favorite target.

The moves have brought not just talent but chemistry. Mangini loves to talk about his "core values," and when it comes to bringing in a new player, the coach wants to know not only his 40 time but if he has a penchant for drinking 40s.

"I drive Mike crazy because he'll say, 'We have this corner we want to work out. He's 5-11, 195,' " Mangini said. "My question is, 'Well, what's he like? Tell me about him. What's he like?' That, to me, is crucial."

The final ingredient came with that July call from the Packers that they were shopping Favre. No. 4 has been the yeast that has made the Jets rise.

All of those moves now have the Jets sitting atop the AFC East with the playoffs in sight. Last January, the plan was to get bigger. This January, the Jets hope to have bigger plans.
