MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:39 PM) Some mocks had him top 10
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:42 PM) this guy is small
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) Most mocks had Lee at 17 to the Falcons
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) He's a day 1 starter for us. We've needed OLB forever
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:46 PM) Plus we generate a great rush from wilk rich and Williams
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:50 PM) I wanted Lawson bad
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:50 PM) f***ing bills
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:51 PM) Lee fills a need better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) I would have liked tunsil to slide to us though. After east picking great
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) Would you take Lee over Lawson?
azjetfan Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:55 PM) I'm not inspire by that pick. Not even a little
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:01 PM) Wasn't an option. Lawson was gone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:02 PM) Lawson is more of a de. We already have too many of those. We only have 1 proven LBer and he's 32 and we run a 3-4. Lee is a day 1 starter
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:03 PM) Broncos traded up for lynch

Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:19 AM) jets tried to trade up for tunsil but the price was too high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:10 PM) Tunsil will end up out of the league
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:12 PM) Lee isn't a pass rusher, hes a fast athletic LB. Hes probably their future at ILB, someone who can cover in the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:16 PM) jets said he's an ILB for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) If we could grab jack he would be an OLB
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) ttians have 3 picks in the next 13 picks

SoReALSoJetS Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:29 PM) Hi guys long time no talk hope everyone is well
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:46 PM) SMH
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:46 PM) JETS drafted QB Hackenberg PSU
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:47 PM) Should have picked Connor Cook.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:56 PM) I guess we are giving up on petty
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) Or giving up on geno
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) I said the rumor was they liked him more then cook
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:35 PM) I know I'm biased, but I've seen them both play. Cook is just better. Hackenberg had one good year. Cook has won more games, played in big games and won them....whatever, its done now so no sense on dwelling on it I guess. I just don't see the appeal in Hackenberg, nice kid, but I always thought he was really overrated. Oh well. I would have taken Kevin Hogan over Hackenberg.
azjetfan Icon : (30 April 2016 - 03:47 PM) From what I have read so far he had a great freshman year under Obrien in a pro style offense. At that point some considered him the next Andrew luck. Then Obrien left and they shifted to a spread under new HC who did poor job bringing in talent. He was also sacked and hit a million times. Might be shell shocked.
Smedsthejet Icon : (01 May 2016 - 06:17 AM) But Chan Gailey runs a spread system - still, I'm comfortable with the Hackenberg pick seeing as Gailey will develop the system to suit his strength... I'm just glad that we passed on Paxton Lynch in the first...we still desperately need Fitz to re-sign though
azjetfan Icon : (01 May 2016 - 07:14 PM) From my understanding the spread in college and the spread in NFL are not the same principals. I really think it was more of a talent issue and getting sacked 80 times in 2 years that did him in. I have no idea if he will make it. I don't follow college ball enough to to know. Theses are just things I read in articles.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 10:24 AM) I'm stoked about getting peake in the 7th round. that was a steal. he was a projected 3rd rounder. wonder what scared teams away
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:05 PM) Jets Invite Terron Beckham(Odell's Cousin) to Minicamp
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:06 PM) Listed as a RB had more bench presses and highest vertical of anyone this year. Hasn't played football since high school and apparently not very smart
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:16 PM) The Jets had Hackenberg as their #2 rated QB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:16 PM) Apparently, they loved Golf and tried to trade up. When that failed, their #2 QB was Hackenberg, they fell in love with his football IQ
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:17 PM) It would be a mistake to start him right away, hes a guy who needs development. He has the talent, and apparently he has good leadership skills and football IQ. His mechanics are off though

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.
