Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:18 PM) DeMario Davis seems like hes poised to have a breakout season at LB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:50 PM) It was nice seeing Pryor in, he made some plays. I think hes going to be the real deal and that we will hit on a stud with him
azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:43 PM) The pick by Geno seemed to be more on Nelson. Nelson sat on his route. Geno threw it were he was supposed to be.
azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:44 PM) Who knows though
santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) http://gfycat.com/Mi...idHookersealion
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 : (Yesterday, 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (Today, 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha

How's the backwards compatibility with your games/apps?

so quick question. when you install programs on it do you choose the XP version or the vista version? i would assume vista because upgrading from vista doesn't lose any data. it was supposedly made seamless. however from xp you need to clear and reformat the drive to upgrade it

I completely wiped Vista off before throwing on Windows 7 from disk, but I always select Vista as my OS and haven't had any problems to this date and I have alot of crap on my system.

cool. the one thing that sucks when upgrading a PC is having to reinstall every program you have. thats one place mac got it right. all you need to do is cop all the files over. programs don't get installled, there all self contained. Windows needs to move in that direction

So I ran some game demos on my new rig to see how it would fare. I started off with something easy first:

SW LEGO. No surprise here, it ran great.


FEAR Extraction. Using the auto-set, I got fantastic game play; clear, crisp, and no lag whatsoever. It looked and felt like playing a console.


CRYSIS. Even on all low settings at 800x600, this game looked and played great. This is a VERY graphics-intensive game that usually destroys lesser video cards and laptops in most product reviews. I seriously expected not to be able to play this worth a damn with a meager 256 dedicated, but it worked well and looked fine to my eye.
I did however shut down my ISP and all active taskbar applications before running it.

YAYYYY!!!! banana019.gif

Its been tested by a lot of top companies and they reported no issues. The best they've seen from Microsoft. I pre ordered my copy last week on Amazon for $49.99 to ship October 23rd. Can't wait for 7. This is going on my desktop. Running Vista on the laptop.

Windows 7 should be the best thing to hit the market from Microsoft in a long time. Got this when it was in the initial beta stage & the bugs have been getting worked out. The RC is now available for anyone to download & that is pretty much what the final version will be. There may be very minor changes but nothing drastic.

You can't upgrade from XP, but there is a way to save all your data so that its still there after doing a clean install. Nice little added feature IMO. Everyone's going to be saying Vista what? when this does finally come clean.

If anyone wants to try this, the RC will still be good until at least July of next year with full support, so if you want to wait a while to see how many issues there are before buying it, just get the release candidate, test it on your machine & if you like it, keep it. If not, go back to XP.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

Someone school me.

If I downloaded Windows 7 off one of my torrent sites, burned it to DVD and installed it -- I could have it on my Dell Inspiron?

If so, I'll do that shit tonight. I just did a factory restore on my Vista last week and it pissed me off. I'm about to buy a couple 1.5 TB external drives to transfer my media to. Also, fuck paying.

You don't need to DL it from a torrent site. You can get it directly from Micorsoft. Here's a link & all the info you need including a link for a test to see if your Inspiron can handle it or not. I think the minimum requirements are very low like a 1 gig processor & a gig of ram. That's almost nothing these days.

watch out for the trial though

QUOTE
Watch the calendar. The RC will expire on June 1, 2010. Starting on March 1, 2010, your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. Windows will notify you two weeks before the bi-hourly shutdowns start. To avoid interruption, you'll need to install a non-expired version of Windows before March 1, 2010. You'll also need to install the programs and data that you want to use. (Learn more about installing Windows.)


so basically after march 1st of next year you'll have to but it or switch back to vista

What you find on a torrent site will only be the same most likely. I never use torrents anyway. Much easier with newsgroups & less risk involved.

Windows 7 Download


I'm registered with Toshiba for a disk when Win 7 finally ships, but it seems like if you're eligible for the upgrade you should be able to download from MS and just make back up disks like the ones my laptop pretty much commanded me to do as it's first operation out of the box.

And one more thing:

God Bless Ion Storm. I downloaded some demos of my favorite old games last night, and DX1 fired up and played great unlike Descent 3 or Doom3.

I hope Win 7 will finally address these kinds of descrepencies.
