OFF SEASON ALMOST OVER AUG 13 VS LIONS
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:37 PM) rumor has it he wanted a raise over his $5.5 million base this year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:39 PM) 33 is young for a guard. he's got at least 3-4 more years in him
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Mmmmm I disagree.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) I would go 2 year deal.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 June 2015 - 10:40 PM) TEH WARRIORS
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER

santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:19 PM) god damn week no activity in here
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (29 June 2015 - 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 June 2015 - 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (29 June 2015 - 08:59 PM) I feel fast.
azjetfan Icon : (01 July 2015 - 07:53 PM) Shot an 86 today. Personal best.
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) well done
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) im going to play friday
blk_orion Icon : (02 July 2015 - 08:57 AM) play what? golf?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) Sheldon Richardson suspended 4 game for substance abuse.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) f***
ganggreen2003 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 06:15 PM) DAMNIT TO f***ing HELL!!!!
azjetfan Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:46 PM) Yup. Golf. I'm ready to take on Tiger. Mid season form. For what ever reason I am hitting the driver great. 280 and fairly controlled. I'm playing again Saturday.
santana Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:55 PM) tiger shot a 66 today didnt he easy course though
santana Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:55 PM) things were going too well for the jets this off season
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 July 2015 - 10:33 PM) Well I guess Williams will be starting in opening day now

We have all been brainwashed. The big splash will be a new pool added to Florham Park that Rexy is going to do a cannonball into during the summer!

Bringing back Coles, on the cheap, for depth wouldn't be a bad idea. He isn't going to push B.E. or Cotch, but he could be a slot receiver for a year, or a number 4. I don't think we sign Coles, why bother. We can draft a guy to be our slot receiver, or if we get a little lucky, we draft Dez Bryant, maybe Thomas from GTech, and when we go 3 wide put J-Co in the slot, with B.E. and Rookie out wide. Plus, Coles is one big hit away from being done.

To answer a couple of your points: by this point in his career Coles isn't going to be looking for a payday - he got a decent cheque from the Bengals after all, whilst I think he would be content with having a backup role (the portrayal of him as a whinger is exaggerated IMO given that all I can remember him griping about was the intensity of Mangini's training camps and that never seemed to strain their relationship). In regards to Clowney - he was hardly used probably because he isn't a very good receiver. He's had two years on the roster now and has only ever shown in preseason. On the issue of a playmaker, is that not what Edwards' role is meant to be? Tall, fast and can stretch the field?
Out of a #3 WR you can't expect eye dropping numbers, and Coles still had a decent year in Cincinatti, in which he stayed healthy.
We're disagreeing over what we think needs in terms of receivers - you believe the team needs a playmaker, whilst I see the team requiring depth and someone who can produce at either #3 or #4 on the depth chart.
[/quote]


You cant have too many playmakers and Edwards only catches 1 out of every 5 deep balls. The Jets are reported as looking for another playmaker, not just me. And all we have as a homerun threat right now is leon, and he is comming off a broken leg.

I didnt mean to insinuate coles wanted a large contract, just a larger one then he desrves, and frankly, he isnt worth veteran minimum right now, especially not if hes a 4th receiver.

As for Clowney, im not saying hes great, but the FO seems to think he can become something and he finally scored this year. if they want him to get a bigger role Coles and a rookie would kill that. And right now id take Clowney over Coles, becuase at least Clowney can still burn.

And if you want a slow, aging receiver, who would be looked to as a possesion receiver(when he cant even keep possesion) you have fun with that. Common sense states a young receiver who has playmaking potential is the better option, especially since Braylon is only on a one year deal.

if its not common sense then it should be. Which would you rather go into a horse race with? An old horse who has a history of throwing his jockey off? or a young stud?

I didn't take any sides.

Coles is on his last legs.

We don't know how the rookie will pan out.

All I'm saying is there is two sides to the argument. It's not common sense, its pure opinion. You have yours, smeds has his.

didnt say you were taking sides i simply posed a question to you.

And breaking down common sense in its simplest meaning, the most common opinion in this thread is to NOT take back coles, therefore it is common sense. If it was just me vs. smeds id see you as having a point, but thats not the case.

There is plenty of people who think taking back Coles and having another vet around (regardless of drafting a rookie or not) would be a good thing for this team.

Well all know the people on this board don't give a shit for Coles. It's always been that way.

Believe it or not, there are other Jets fans out there.

yea i know there are other jet fans out there [img]http://nyjetsfan.com/forum2/public/style_emoticons/default/grimace-32.png[/img] kinda obvious, however if you wanna take it that way, we can go into all the football minds and what they think of the deal.

straight up Coles is not what we need and is a waste of space on the roster. I dont know how many different ways to say it. If your sentimental about the guy, put on his jersey and watch old highlights, cus thats as good as its gunna get.

I never said I wanted him. I actually don't want him, but I can definitely see where smeds (and others) come from when they say we could welcome him back.

If we make the "big FA splash" with Taylor, my guy I want at #29 is probably Thomas from GT. But I like some other guys too that I wouldn't mind like Jared Odrick if hes there.

Bwah!??! YOU LIE!!!!


If Gaytay is the big FA splash, then I propose a trade up for Earl Thomas. Oh, thought just crossed my mind. Thoughts on Myron Rolle? The year off from football to become a Rhodes Scholar has apparently dropped his stock. Would anybody object if we were able to draft him? Then, our most pressing needs apparently seem to be fixed short term. Taylor helps the pass rush, Myron Rolle learns behind Pool, we draft either a lineman or a receiver in the first. Wham, Bam, thank you Madden10.

Ain't that the truth:

Holmes, Taylor on the fence.

Will MT move up in the draft to get a stud??

Everyone is going to have to their best to get air time on Hard Knocks.

I don't pretend to know the players in the draft but one thing is for sure Tanny can take any player he wants other than a team that has no choice but to take the #1 player.
Tanny will make it a throw down.
