HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:29 PM) I'm still pissed off about that
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:43 PM) Its not that Im worried about the preseason game itself. i could care less about that. Its the fact of how bad we got destroyed. And some of the guys will be on the team and others on the fringe so getting destroyed like that doesnt fill me with confidence
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:44 PM) It would be one thing if it was just the second half or 4th quarter but this was the whole game. especially getting destroyed in the 1st quarter and at least part of the 2nd where a lot of the guys will be on the team
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) 2nd and 3rd stringers making the team had something to prove and even our 2nd stringers got owned so yes Im very concerned. The first stringers need breaks and also if some of them get injured they need to step up. So no after this performance start to finish Im very concerned
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 06:39 AM) Meh...you're reading too much into it
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 06:40 AM) Even in seasons where the Jets blew, I haven't seen anyone refer to the preseason to complain. Ever.

Jetsman05 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 11:17 AM) I picture Rob and 115 as real life friends
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 04:01 PM) Holmes can still play, problem is that hes also a cancer. He wore out his welcome with the Jets
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 08:23 PM) did Hill get cut?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Whos ready for the season!!? WOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2014 - 11:54 AM) Hill has been cut
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 August 2014 - 01:24 PM) Who wants to take bets he ends up in NE
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:18 PM) We'll I guess you guys are fools then in thinking im a fool for being concerned. Do any of you even know that in 2013 the Jets gave up the most passing yards in the franchise since 1986? And our secondary right now is worse than last year right now. To not be concerned is utterly foolish.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:19 PM) Unless our d-line has a monstrous year odds are the team will be eaten up in the pass. Every team will game plan to exploit the pass this year.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:56 PM) Patterson got cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:24 PM) Patterson must have been a huge cancer to get cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:26 PM) is there a midseason draft? we need a DB!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) Our week 1 starting CBs will be Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls... wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) interesting that Simms and Boyd were released
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 04:00 PM) No more McIntyre
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:20 PM) Pretty sure some of these cuts like Simms and McIntyre were made for removing some more cap space to try to find some decent corners and maybe another reliable wr. Possibly get some players cheap. I'd say the current 53 roster will change a good bit in the next week.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:23 PM) I just hope Geno doesn't get hurt or we are horse f*cked. Vick sure as hell can't stay healthy for a full season. I guess the FO could also be think of picking up an old vet cut as 3rd qb. Simms is ok but I'd never trust him to win a regular season game if he was put in.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:25 PM) Anyway it's going yo be an interesting week.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) I doubt it was about freeing up money, considering we are way under. Like more than $20 mil, way more than enough to find some vet minimum CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:19 PM) it's more about the roster numbers. McIntyre was replaced by rookies. IK showed flashes when he played
bleedsgreen Icon : (31 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) McIntyre is a shock to me he was a solid backup and made some big plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) 1 week till we are 1-0
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) we need to annihilate the GAYders
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:28 PM) We claimed McFadden from the Browns. Knows the system should be able to contribute right away
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:29 PM) Watching the Browns game now. Playing all three CB spots. Looks OK. A little grabby although he has not been called for it
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:30 PM) Might be a little aggressive and get burnt over top
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 10:26 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) ^^^ agreed
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) all the admins on this page should be fired
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) for being assclowns
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:17 PM) The Jets are fucked at CB, signing some bums now. We need Milliner to get healthy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:20 PM) We have signed CB Phillip Adams
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) The Gayders are playing Derek Carr against the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) our D Line better put him in a WORLD OF PAIN
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:11 PM) Rookie QB in our house...Rex do your thing!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:56 PM) with Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls as our starting CBs
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:00 PM) our offense should be better than last year, Geno looks more comfortable
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:03 PM) The Jets released Jeremiah George and Ellis Lankster, hopefully George finds his way to the PS. AJ Edds was re-signed

The quality of soccer this tournament has been really poor. I hope in the second round of games, when teams really need to chase all 3 points, it'll get better.

Yea.. a real lack of goal scoring is killing the buzz.

The second half of Brazil - North Korea was pretty decent. Great move by the Koreans - who didn't look half bad - to get their goal, and Elano's strike was created by a beautiful pass.

It wasn't bad. Koreans definitely looked better then I thought, and Brazil took a bit to get going. Why they didn't bring Neymar and Ganso is beyond me. The world would love to see those two kids on such a stage.

Portugal vs. Ivory Coast, the matchup of the first round of games was stop/start all day long and proved to be a really poor match

I was dragged out to the shops for most of that game, which didn't make me particularly happy, but I'm glad I was now. Strange to see Sven keep Drogba on the bench for all but the last 25 minutes. I know his injury made him a risk to put on for too long, but Portugal were there for the taking from what I did see.

Portugal was definitely there for the taking. They did play pretty well at the back though. Offered very little going forward outside of a Ronaldo crack off the post.

Thought Drogba wouldn't be risked at all to be honest, he had once half-chance when he came on that he took poorly.

New Zealand/Slovakia game anyone?

Not high scoring but awesome ending. I started watching the game in the morning and ended up sitting there and went in late for work...totally worth it to see that ending. I was just about to give up and turn the TV off and the kiwi's dropped in that goal.

Isn't soccer a funny game? How New Zealand feels like they won that game and Slovakia feels like they lost...only because the all whites had the equivalent of a walk off draw.

It was an exciting game, but Slovakia felt like they lost for another reason too, because they were clear favorites and should be taking 3 points from that game. But it was a fun ending.

My how the tides have changed today with the Switzerland/Spain game.

Although I still see Spain advancing and moving on deep into the tourney.

But then again, maybe they have figured out a weakness.

It's easier said then done, but Inler and Fernandes cut off Xavi's time and passing. They played with just Villa up top and he couldn't get his normal service from Xavi. When they put Torres in, and Navas in it gave Xavi more room and more of a threat going forward.

I'd expect in the their next game, if Torres isn't fit enough for 90 we will see Llorrente uptop with Villa, they need two strikers, especially someone like Llorrente or Torres who can play as target men as well, and let Villa run off them.

What an upset though. Well done Swiss

Ya, agree, I feel they will come back with a flurry of goals on whoever is in front of them.

The game goin right now isn't a bad watch either.

Chile vs. Spain will be fun if Chile comes out with the attacking play they had today

Well I didn't get to see the Germany game(comes on way to damn early on my side of the country), but heard that it was a great game to watch and they had some chances, including a penalty kick which was saved, but ended up losing with 10 men.

Ref was horrible, but Germany had their chances. Still don't know why Podolski was the one chosen to take the penalty.

Great comeback, sad to see that we can't always play like we did in the second half! and just a horrible call by the referees on that offside/foul

yea thats such bs. we played terrible in the first half but we still shoulda won the game. The ref didnt even say what the call was, everyone thought he was calling offsides but he just called a penalty and never explained. if anything the U.S. was fouled, everyone was getting bear hugged.

Well, since England couldn't break past the Algerian defense the USA is now one win away from advancing!

We were that bad I was laughing by the end of it. It was all one-speed, there was no sense of urgency - unlike with the US against Slovenia (great comeback by the way and you should have won!), and it was just horrible to watch. To think of the players England have, how much they're paid and how highly they are praised, you would expect they could at least put together a decent performance against Algeria. Heck, Germany created more chances with 10 men against a Serbia defence, who on paper at least are far better than the Algerian backline!

Listening to the radio after the game everyone seemed to be jumping on Capello's back, but in my opinion the buck rests with the players. Rooney in the week said England didn't need to play at their best to beat Algeria, whilst Gerrard said how the match would be Algeria's World Cup final - it smacked of arrogance and showed. And Rooney had the nerve to make a sarcastic remark about the team being boo-ed off the field after the game. I mean, what does he expect? You would think by the performances he has put in so far during this World Cup that he's a forward from a lower level Premier League team, not one of the best in the world.

It's got to the point where I'm starting to hope we get knocked out sooner rather than later. It will be a travesty if we go on and win the competition.
