Jets miss out on playoffs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2016 - 05:51 PM) CMON DENVER
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2016 - 06:00 PM) This Denver D is stiflin the f*** out of the CHEATriots OL
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2016 - 06:34 PM) THANK YOU DENVER!!!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (24 January 2016 - 07:11 PM) We need a stud outside pass rushing LB. look what Miller and ware did to Brady twice this year
MikeGangGree... Icon : (24 January 2016 - 09:51 PM) CAM NEWTON!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 January 2016 - 01:33 PM) I think both of these defenses are showing us that you need fast and athletic lbs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (25 January 2016 - 08:48 PM) so do we bring back Mo?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (26 January 2016 - 10:23 AM) of course
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (26 January 2016 - 10:23 AM) we franchise tag him
vjdbbq Icon : (26 January 2016 - 02:41 PM) But then we have very little cap room left . Is he worth it ?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2016 - 09:43 PM) If we cut cro and brick we will be around 28 million under the cap. We can tag him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2016 - 09:44 PM) Or tag and trade him. No way we should just let him walk
vjdbbq Icon : (27 January 2016 - 08:24 AM) We need Cro and Brick but for less salary .
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:18 AM) what up home dawgs?
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:22 AM) long time no chat, Ya boy has returned from the depths. Good to see everyone alive and well. Another season down the drain... what else is new? Fitz coming back next yr means we wont be going to the superbowl. We seriously need to land a QB. I hope Petty is the future and Im still quietly waiting for Geno to show up. IF they retain him it would speak volumes
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 January 2016 - 11:23 AM) I'm done with Geno. Never really expected much from him from the beginning. So I'm also looking for Petty to be the future.
vjdbbq Icon : (29 January 2016 - 04:33 PM) GENO SUCKS MONKEY DICK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:16 PM) S-Dubb??.Who's that guy?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:17 PM) FIRE S-DUBB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Dubb and Amen? Did I take a wrong turn and land back in 2007?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Haha good to see both of you
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:28 PM) I don't care if Cro comes back, I think Marcus Williams can start opposite Revis. Hes a ball hawk and has performed well everytime hes called on.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) I want Fitz back as starter, he lacks arm talent but he is scrappy
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) The team loves him as a leader and he is a good bridge QB as we groom a QB of the future.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He also has top notch pocket awareness.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He allows our playmakers to make plays. After years of terrible QB play, I'll take 31 TD 15 INTs almost 4,000 yards
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 February 2016 - 12:41 AM) I can't stop thinking about the off season...... what the hell are we gonna do!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Maccagnan is going to have to show his worth
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) They can't have Wilkerson on that franchise tag, they have to sign him long term with a small cap hit or trade him. Otherwise we are in trouble with other FAs.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) We need Harrison back, you can't run a effective 3-4 without a stud NT.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:01 AM) I hope we get Harrison back on a 4 yr contract.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:55 PM) I really think we are going to have to tag and trade Wilkerson
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) If we keep wilk we lose Harrison or Fitzpatrick maybe both
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) And ivory
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:23 PM) We can't keep Wilkerson, Richardson, and Williams. A move has to be made
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) If the Jets want to go cheaper, they can try to trade Wilkerson and have Richardson/Williams for cheap
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Then they can re-sign Harrison, FItzpatrick, Ivory, and maybe Powell.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Kaepernick apparently wants out of SF and wants to join the Jets
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Guess he sees the Jets as a team with a great WR tandem and a quality OC who builds a offense around the players
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) No thanks
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) Unless he's dirt cheap
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:30 AM) The jets would be fools to take on that contract
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 02:09 PM) keep powell, snakcs, wilkerson, and fitz. let ivory walk, trade richardson, cut cromartie, restructure brick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 04:18 PM) Marshall said no to Kaepnerick, he wants FItzpatrick as his QB
vjdbbq Icon : (04 February 2016 - 12:07 PM) Where's Rob ? I need some ass shots !!!!!

Brunell Wants To Join Jets, But Held Up By Taylor

Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reports a source close to Mark Brunell told The Post today that the veteran quarterback would very much like to sign with the Jets, but Brunell's hands are tied until Jason Taylor makes up his mind.

That's because the NFL's "Final Four" rule allows the Jets to sign an unrestricted free agent only if they lose one to another team, then at roughly the same first-year salary of the departing player.

In the Jets' case, they only have one such slot available at $1.5 million in the first year after losing kicker Jay Feely to the Cardinals. And that slot is reserved for Taylor, the league's active sack leader who reportedly is leaning toward signing with the Jets after a red-carpet recruiting trip earlier this week.

I think he is fair game (God that final 8 rule sucks)

Just another player on the list who want to be on the Jets. Everyone wants to play for Rexy, I'm glad he's our coach.

Even Jason Taylor wants to play for him. LMAO!

I thought that too, but on another Jets board someone showed that the wording made it appear as that but really these rules imply to final 4 players too.


But the Jets appear to not be signing Marques Douglas so if he signs somewhere the Jets would be able to sign Brunell.

So yes to a backup who will unlikely see the field (albeit his brain will be a bonus for Sanchez to pick apart) and no to someone who - although not held in high esteem by Jets fans - could make an impact for the defense?

Exactly that. He'll make an impact alright on defense by whiffing on tackles and making this organization look stupid for even considering this piece of trash.

He's a professional athlete, if he signs with us he isn't going to go out there and tank games. I can't believe you still are saying that shit man... you cannot be serious

Honestly.....please be honest.

Do all of you supporters of Taylor signing here really think he's going to play with the heart and determination that he played with for the Fins? I don't think so. This guy does NOT........I repeat DOES NOT even want to play for us. Why is that so hard for everyone to understand?

His agent practically FORCED him to even visit us. This piece of filth is using Rex's interest in him as nothing more than a bargaining chip with the Fins. His agent had to put it in his head that he's not guaranteed a spot anywhere and the Fins that he LOVES so much have even told him they wont even consider him until after the draft. If he doesn't sign with us by the end of this week, it wont happen at all because he'll be home in Florida with the Fins and then a bunch of Jets fans are going to look at themselves in the mirror and ask "Why did I want him again?"

Too many people are acting like this guy is God's gift. If he was that hot a commodity, why then is he receiving ZERO interest from other teams in need of a pass rush?

I think you're forgetting the x-factor here, and that is the fact that at the end of the day these players want to secure their legacy. And what better way then to win a Super Bowl? Players will put aside their pride, need for personal wealth, and faith in other organizations to sign with teams that are Super Bowl bound. You'll see that very thing happen this summer if Cleveland doesn't win the NBA championship. You think Lebron won't sign in the East, or take a pay cut to sign with another top flight FA on the same team? Your damn right he will, championships are the almighty goal. And i for one will welcome Taylor with open arms, because i too am in it for the almighty goal.
"I thought he was good?!? If he prays when he scores. Everyone knew him for praying. That only can mean he scores :)"

Yes, absolutely. Taylor is one of the best to every play his position (admit it...) and he is obviously a serious competitor. He is in the final years of his hall of fame career and presumably cares about a superbowl over all else, including a stupid grudge against a team that has changed almost its entire personnel over the last few years. If he signs with the Jets it will be to win a championship here. If not why wouldn't he go somewhere else? He can obviously get more than $1.5 million in an uncapped year. Only a psychopath would give up millions to dog a team that they hate. Taylor may be a dick, but he's no psychopath...

he snaked the skins. if he signs he wont train up in ny probably stay in florida for as long as he can. i could see something stupid happening like him going to the cowboys and getting two sacks and being injured all year. if hes smart he suckers another NFC east team for a paycheck.

Really? Where else can he go? Did you miss the fact that NO ONE other than the Jets have any interest in him other than in Miami? His whole visit to the Jets was a ploy to push Miami into offering him something. Did you notice that their stance of doing nothing with him until after the draft changed to Miami's coach meeting with him this week?

Open your eyes people!! Taylor may be a talented player but he DOES NOT want to be here. Why are you all saying he is expressing interest in us? HIS AGENT is interested in the Jets. Rex Ryan is interested in Jason Taylor. Jason Taylor was reluctant to even visit Florham Park. Where has he EVER even ONCE said he's interested in playing here that would get you excited to have him here? Show me ONE SINGLE quote from a reputable source saying he would bleed green and white or actually WANT to be here and then maybe I'll look at him differently. Until you can do that, he's still a piece of $hit.

He's not going to say he wants to be here just because of the risk if he doesn't sign here and ends up back in Miami... It makes sense to me.
