MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 06:49 PM) Well it's only pre season but I don't enjoy watching them walk right over our defense
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) Looks like nothing has changed from the last 5 years. Our offense is still trash
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Damn petty has a rocket arm!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:54 PM) Kellen Davis sucks
Mr_Jet Icon : (22 August 2015 - 12:40 PM) Bryce Petty looked really good last night.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 04:56 PM) He took some big steps from week one. There is no question. If he continues to progress like that we may be chanting for him sooner than expected. I love his arm.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 06:56 PM) Sanchez looks like Drew Bree's today
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 August 2015 - 01:24 PM) WOOOOOOOO Ric Flair!
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) The guy in the fantasy league who said we're scared of Santana... is clearly santana.
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) just sayin
Jetsman05 Icon : (26 August 2015 - 01:45 PM) im only half serious
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 09:30 AM) Also i suspect that santana
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 09:30 AM) might be santana
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 01:35 PM) Tough draw for Liverpool
Jetsman05 Icon : (27 August 2015 - 02:21 PM) Suarez second best in Europe... pretty good
SoReALSoJetS Icon : (29 August 2015 - 06:11 PM) anybody know a stream for it?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 August 2015 - 06:49 AM) WOOOOO
Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:10 AM) Jets just announced first 12 players to be released:
Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:10 AM) T. J. Graham, Saalim Hakim, Austin Hill, DeVier Posey, Jonathon Rumph (WRs), Matt LaCosse (TE), James Brewer, Dalton Freeman (OL), Bryan Johnson (LB), Javier Arenas, Curtis Brown, Keith Lewis (DBs)
Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:11 AM) A little surprised that Posey is gone in this first batch of moves, but then we did have a glut of WRs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (30 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Any word on Leonard Williams injury?
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:49 PM) He will be ready week 1. Just a sprain
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 10:33 AM) so we whooped the giants ass pretty badly
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 10:38 AM) bills cut fred jackson
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:29 PM) We got lucky with Williams
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:30 PM) Hes looked like a beast as well, so we need him healthy. Hes gonna be a future all pro
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Our offense can be competent this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:33 PM) Zac Stacy was a good add
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:46 PM) I'm surprised Freeman was cut, I thought he was a solid backup center. Guess they like Wesley Johnson better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:58 PM) our offense is passable. we should put up 14-17 a game average
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:58 PM) should be enough for our Defense. our d-line is nasty with wilk, rich, snacks, and now williams
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:59 PM) out MLBs get picked on in coverage though. davis had a rough game
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:59 PM) our Cbs are way too good. cro revis and skrine. plus mcdougle looked solid. when milliner comes back, him being a dime back could be huge too
Jetsman05 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 02:24 PM) 17 points a game is "passable"? If we average 17 a game this season, we won't win more than 5 ball games.
Jetsman05 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 02:24 PM) Needs to be 20+
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 05:33 PM) Our offense should be better than its been in years
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 05:34 PM) which wouldn't take much
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:03 PM) another ex jet going to the pats http://theredzone.or...ms/Default.aspx
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:04 PM) our defense should allow an average of less then 14 a game IMO. If we can average 17 a agme I think we can win 9-10
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) Jace Amaro was put on IR, torn labrum.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:26 PM) That sucks, I was looking forward to him at TE
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:24 PM) Labrum tear....definitely out for the year. Its not a bad surgery. I used the sling for about a week before I ditched it completely. Supposed to use it for a full 6 weeks. You can get away without it but just have to be careful not raising or moving your arm much and no lifting of pretty much anything. As far as fully healing ....6 mon ths minimum but for lifting heavy and full contact sports I wouldnt trust 6 months
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:31 PM) Still not that bad of a surgery on a pain scale. after a few days it mostly just aches like hell. ice and keeping your arm still is important. sleeping is major hard for the first 3 weeks or so. You wake up in pain a god bit. Id be dreaming and jerk my right arm up or move it wrong or lay on it wrong and wake up in major pain. still I liked t better without the sling than being completely immobile with one arm and healed just fine. He will come back from it fine
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:37 PM) sucks we lost Amaro for the season
santana Icon : (Today, 09:34 AM) http://sport.woot.co...ef=gh_sp_6_wp_3

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.

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.
