santana Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:23 PM) I'm the best driver on the east coast! Everyone else is terrible
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:52 PM) The biggest mistake was made today
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:53 PM) Stanton for $325 Mil
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:53 PM) after he got hit in the face who said he'll even be the same player ever again
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:54 PM) but the Marlins throw $325 million at him like nothing ever happened
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 06:55 PM) I predict he'll be a shell of himself and in 5 years he will be horrible player and the $ will still be weighing down the Marlins for the remainder of the contract
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 07:06 PM) 3 years ago I would of considered this kind of contract but after what happened to him this season and how he might be shocked to step into the batters box in 2015 is a HUGE risk when a team gives them $325 million
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 07:07 PM) these monster contracts are ridiculous to begin with
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 07:32 PM) So who thinks the JETS will win this Sunday?
a1elbow2.0 Icon : (17 November 2014 - 08:29 PM) Ryan is terrible after byes. 2-9
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 10:22 PM) Titans may pull this one out!
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 11:17 PM) Or not
azjetfan Icon : (17 November 2014 - 11:18 PM) Mettle burger a 6th rounder played better than Geno or Sanchez
ganggreen2003 Icon : (18 November 2014 - 05:34 PM) all these players that got cut today cause they bitched about touches
ganggreen2003 Icon : (18 November 2014 - 05:35 PM) Ben Tate, LaGarret Blount and Jason Avant
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 November 2014 - 01:37 PM) aldaon smith did too, but he didn't get cut
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (19 November 2014 - 06:51 PM) ALDAON SMITH
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (19 November 2014 - 06:51 PM) TEH MILBER

Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:59 PM) besides funding the site
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:00 PM) Looks like the game will be moved to Monday night in either Detroit, Pittsburgh, or Washington DC.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 02:55 PM) that makes it sound like I AM THE TABLE
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 03:36 PM) SUCK FOR TEH DUCK

ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:00 PM) JETS will play on Monday Night at 7pm in Detroit as per Fox Sports Mike Garafalo
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:07 PM) word
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:07 PM) i wonder how much tickets could be
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:16 PM) murray bringing it to the table for 05
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:16 PM) well bringing it to his bench
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:22 PM) Unreal. My fantasy luck is awesome
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:25 PM) GIOVANI OCHO SANTOS
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:26 PM) If i win by 3 pts i'm going to get drunk with the tulane students
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:50 PM) I don't think murray comes back. That hit was pretty vicious
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:46 PM) THEEE RAAAAAAIYYYYDDDAAAHSS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:46 PM) Hell has frozen over
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:46 PM) the Raiders have won a game against the KC Cheifs
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:51 PM) that celebration on 3rd down when they sacked alex smith was hilarious

I'm predicting England win 2-1, but will win it with a lucky goal. We've been woeful in the warm up matches, and it has only slowly dawned on people that this team isn't as good as people think.
If Clint Dempsey is up against Glen Johnson (England's right back), that will be a very interesting matchup. Defensively, Johnson is suspect, and Dempsey is a very tricky player, who I like a lot.

First game was a good one - great first goal by the South Africans, and - although Mexico, who like in their friendly with England were poor in front of goal, deserved a point - I felt sorry for the host nation at the end that they didn't win.

Johnson is going to be where the USA should attack. You know I'm a Liverpool supporter, and I do love Glen Johnson, he's one of the best right backs going forward but like you said really suspect defensively at times.

I'll save my prediction until I see what Bradley puts out there. He's unpredictable, and I cannot stand him. We'll see..

Supposedly there are going to be more US fans in the stadium than English fans, which you wouldn't expect given the difference in popularity of the sport between the two of our countries.
To be honest though that can be put down largely to the British media - who already are making a bit of a scene about the empty seats at the game between South Korea and Greece today - and their consistent portrayal of South Africa as a crime-ridden, no-go zone. Although crime levels are high over there, it is still one of the most visited countries on Earth. If I could afford tickets, travel etc., I'd have jumped at the chance to go.

Saying that though, come on England!

Good luck ya filthy Brits.

I think the US needs Onyweu healthy...and like...able to jump. Not because he is some elite defender, but because he could quickly become a liability if he can't get airborne.

In all fairness, the US deserved that goal - they've created the better of the chances so far and been better on the ball. But they need to get behind our full backs more if they're going to cause England more problems. Too often they've played the ball around in front of our defence, and Donovan and Dempsey should be more adventurous.
England need to be less one dimensional. Rooney has done nothing so far and all we seem to be doing is the long ball up to Heskey.

Should be an interesting second half...

USA playing far too narrow. It's really annoying me.

Tell Donovan to stay far wide, on the line and have a go at either Cole or Johnson.

Second half here we come!

Good game, both were probably deserving of a point. Capello's decisions were mighty interesting.

The group is now really wide open.

I think we'll both go through, but that neither will make it past the quarter finals at best (getting to the last eight for the US would be considered a success though I guess).

Analysts over here have been arguing to play him up front alone, but that would demand a less direct approach than England usually play. With Heskey or Crouch alongside him, the team are arguably more inclined to loft long balls upfield, but that doesn't mean you can't play the ball on the ground too. We need to get Rooney dropping more into the space between defence and midfield, play a quick one-two with a teammate, and have him roll his marker because he'll have most defenders beat for pace.
