New York Jets owner, Woody Johnson, named US ambassador to the UK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) OK so Bill O brien and Sean Payton might get fired according to Fox this morning
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) I would do anything to get one of them as OC
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) texans coach? i doubt he gets fired
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) but he would be ideal if the jets were to flush bowles out
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 04:36 PM) http://www.nj.com/je...trol_of_je.html
azjetfan Icon : (05 January 2017 - 09:54 PM) Sean Payton will get another HC gig. Obrien would be good.
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:18 PM) Howard from Alabama seems legit. #88 TE
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:20 PM) Williams the WR from Clemson looks like they are out to get him. He has taken some huge hits
vjdbbq Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:12 AM) We'll take Williams in the first round .
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 10:48 AM) I'd love Howard in the 2nd round if he's still there. I like Williams a lot as well, but I just don't see WR being big enough of a need, and there should be better talent on the board at 6
Jetsfan115 Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:21 PM) Raiders OC Musgrave not expected to return to OAK. what do you think about getting him? he did wonders with the oakland offense this year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:39 PM) Definitely an appealing choice given with his history of progressing Carr. We need someone with a track record of grooming young QBs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (12 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) I want Watson now! after what he did Monday night I'm sold on him at QB. He moved the ball all night on Alabama and after hurts scored that TD he just told his team "Lets end this"
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:31 PM) An Ohio prosecutor says he wants to know what punishment Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones faces from the NFL before deciding how to proceed over Jones' latest arrest, Dan Sewell of the Associated Press reports..

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WKRC-TV he's asking "what is the normal" for a player with multiple offenses and who's been suspended before.

An NFL spokesman said on Thursday that Jones' case is "under review" and declined to comment further.

Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. Authorities say he was so combative he had to be placed in a restraint chair.

Jones says he anticipates the charges will be dismissed.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:32 PM) we wont get watson. he's going 1st overall to the browns
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:06 PM) Is Watson a product of Clemson's staff and supporting cast? Taj Boyd also put up some decent numbers if I remember correctly but he couldn't even make a scout team in the NFL.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) From what I have read (although limited) he is not the highest ranked QB in the draft.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) "No quarterback in this draft -- not Mitch Trubisky, not Watson, not DeShone Kizer -- is considered a sure thing. The folks at Scouts Inc. rank Trubisky, Watson and Kizer as the 21st, 38th and 46th prospects on their big board, respectively." ESPN
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:12 PM) If we can get a decent return for Richardson we may be able to make a move into the mid teens to early 20s if the Brass really likes Watson.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:13 PM) Personally I don't think the jets have a clue on who they will take. We still have to hit FA and manage our roster
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 11:46 PM) Jets to interview Broncos assistant Studesville for OC
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:28 PM) Why? seems like a weird choice
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:29 PM) Leonard Williams replacing Khalil Mack in Pro Bowl
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm not buying Watson, even after that championship game. Dude threw too many picks in his day
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm really curious to see what we get for Richardson, but I have a bad feeling his value is at an all time low between his crap season and bad attitude
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 12:16 AM) I agree. He is a first round talent but a fourth round headache. We will be lucky to get a 2nd
Chadforpresi... Icon : (14 January 2017 - 08:41 AM) Yeah precisely. 2nd rounder would be a huge stretch. 3rd or 4th is more likely
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:51 PM) Seems like a slightly steep price but overall cool with it, he's turned into a good player and is still young. Just needs to stay healthy.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 January 2017 - 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?

Yea they needed Mike Miller. Now they need a PG (unless LBJ becomes Magic like Mr Jet said), they definitely need a quality back up center.

The NBA is a big joke. Straight up, straight down and any which way you want to slice it. LBJ is writing his legacy and it's spinning down the shitter. MJ did it as a Bull, Kobe a Laker, Bird a Celtic and so on. This guy gives up the booty to play with the heat to get a ring?.. What twice as bad is what happens when they fall short?

If you thought the Jets had pressure. Yikes!

Cavs owner puts LBJ on blast.



You wouldnt be saying that if LeBron was in NY, which was never gunna happen, and thats just sad. stop hating cus you didnt get your way.

LeBron did what he thought would make HIM happy. Its HIS life, not any of yours or any other fans on any other team. Would you waste 6 years of your life just to please fans who would turn on you as quickly as everyone in here and all those people in Cleveland burning jerseys? dont thinks so. Dont think you'll be miserable so people dont dislike you.

Everything Dubb said is the truth. LBJ's legacy will never go down as one of the best. He's never going to be a top 5 player in NBA history.

Don't tell other people to "stop hating because it didn't go their way" you are the one who pronounced yourself as a Cavs fan BECAUSE of LeBron. I'm sure you are a newly found Heat fan as well.

PS: It's really hard to understand some of the things you say with the lack of grammar. I'm not trying to be the grammar police, but if you were to use some real grammar people could understand what you have to say. (Not trying to sound rude, seriously most of the time I have no idea what you are saying)

I's gots no problems wit mines grammar. dude its not even close to bad. and Yup yup im a Heat fan now. But I dont hate Cleveland. I dont hate anyone in here. so even though your grammar is apparently better than mine, you still make no sense.

LeBron wanted to win, so he went where he could win and be happy. Not be top 5 in the eyes of people who never played a game in the nba.

the eyes of the people who never played a game in the NBA are called fans...and they pay their salaries, and make the NBA as successful as it is.

Lebron went from "The King" to "The Court-Jester"...he's a joke, and currently the most hated player in the entire NBA.

Also, even Walt Frazier said that Michael Jordan would've never turned down the type of challenge Lebron faced in Cleveland, and straight up called it a COP-OUT!!!


the whole thing was a train-wreck. Lebron just ruined everything he created.

The saddest statement ever by a sports owner:

"You weren't even that good, I just told you that to make you feel better. I can do better than you."

The Cavs win a third of their games next season they'll be calling James late at night crying like a little bitch.

Look at it like this if Larry Bird had been drafted by the Pacers and for 7 years was the hometown hero but had no rings and then had the chance to sign with McHale and Parrish in Boston. Should he have stayed in Indiana and missed out on winning a title with Boston? Do you think he would have stayed with the Pacers?

If the Charlotte Hornets had existed four years earlier and drafted Jordan and after 7 years he had no rings should he have stayed in North Carlina or have signed with a Bulls team with Scottie Pippen, Horace Grant, and John Paxon and 3-peat?

I think LeBron made the right decision, but he definitely could have gone about announcing it in a much better way. He should have called Dan Gilbert and told him he was leaving before announcing it to the world.

I don't think those are good comparisons to be honest.

The times have changed but LeBron and his team of kids that market him did this thing all wrong. It was horrible. His name, brand and legacy has been ruined, IMO.

Your idiocy is remarkable sometimes clemens.

You think LJB will be there long... no

We will probably be going through this next summer .. more then likely

this is an experiment, so don`t think Lebron can`t go to Jersey, Knicks or Bulls next season or the season after.

As a league the NBA is retarded. Tell me how a player can run the league like this. It shouldn`t happen. It`s pathetic. Honestly, I don`t care about Lebron. I honestly feel there is a realistic idea that Tony Parker and Carmelo Anthony could come to the Knicks. Parker this year and Melo the next.

``Hating cause I didn`t get my way`` .... Only Clemens 11

Magic was ready to leave the Lakers in 1981 because they were losing and he didn't like the way Paul Westhead was coaching the team. Lakers fans were so upset after Magic got Paul Westhead fired they booed him in the Forum. If he would have been drafted by the Pistons and not won a championship with them his first 7 years in the league he also would have left his home state and signed with the Lakers to play with Kareem and James Worthy. And so would have Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. Magic, Larry, and Michael would not have been above leaving their home states to go to a team with better players for a chance to win a championship.

LeBron was not going to win in Cleveland and WE ALL know that. The only people who don't know that are the delusional Cavs fans that are burning $80 jerseys right now. They could beat up on teams like the Wizards, Grizzlies, and Pacers in the regular season yeah. But when it came time to beat teams like Boston and Orlando 4 out of 7 times they could not do it and showed no signs of being able to do it next season either.

People may be hating LeBron now but like in football, winning cures all bad feelings. If LeBron plays like Magic and makes this Heat team look like the Showtime Lakers of the 80s with the no look passes and flashy ally oops that SportsCenter will show highlights of every night. People (outside of Ohio) will end up forgetting all about their new found hate for LeBron. Folks love jumping on a bandwagon.

The sports media and casual NBA fans will always favor and love LeBron and denigrate and hate on Kobe. That's the way it's been since 2004 and one little dust up with Cleveland isn't going to change that. LeBron will always be the hero and Kobe will always be the villain in the eyes of casual fans.

I don't really agree with the fact that you think Magic would of left, etc. You don't know what they would of done. They all definitely wouldn't of handled it the way LeBron did.

It's whatever. LeBron will be hated by some, loved by the other half.

Myself, I think he made a poor decision, it was the easy way out and he's never going to be looked at the same (at the end of his career).

Woah woah woah!!!

I don't know who you think you're talking about, but Jordan MADE the Bulls. Without him, Pippen wouldn't be one of the NBA's 50 Greatest. He wouldn't have been damn near close. Who's to say that Jordan wouldn't have gone and made JR Reid into a an All Star? Or gotten Mugsy to be the leader in steals? Or turned Dell Curry into Robert Horry? You're talking about someone who won with Bill Wennington & Luc Longley. That's like someone playing with Ilgauskas and winning the title.

To be honest with you, I don't think Larry Bird would have left the Pacers. He was too much of a dick to admit that he needs help.

Clemens, the best chance for LBJ to win is Chicago, not the Heat. Wade needed to stay with the Heat because this is his last contract (even if he lasts all 6 years, which is a big if). After the Bulls got Boozer for $80 mill, paying what they'll pay Bosh isn't a great deal. Bosh is not a superstar. He's an All Star, but he's not a franchise player. LBJ could have gone to a more complete TEAM rather than join Wade, Bosh and a few minimum salary scrubs.

I don't really agree with the fact that you think Magic would of left, etc. You don't know what they would of done. They all definitely wouldn't of handled it the way LeBron did.

It's whatever. LeBron will be hated by some, loved by the other half.

Myself, I think he made a poor decision, it was the easy way out and he's never going to be looked at the same (at the end of his career).



Magic asked to be traded, that's a fact. If Jerry Buss had chosen Westhead over Magic, Magic would have been traded. Magic, Dr. Buss, and Paul Westhead on many occasions have all admitted that is what happened. It was a lot like the Kobe and Shaq situation in 04. Luckily in both cases Dr. Buss made the right BUSINESS decision. You're are putting Magic, Larry, and Michael on too high of a pedestal.

The easy way out would have been taking the MLE to play point guard for the Lakers and be Kobe's Scottie Pippen.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

I'm not putting anyone on a pedestal.

LeBron's decision was absolutely baffling. He's going to be the THIRD highest paid player on his team. He will never have a claim that it's "his" championship.

It doesn't really bother me because the Magic are going to knock them out of the playoffs next season, but I just found LeBron's decision baffling, more how he handled it... but I'd be lying to say I wasn't shocked when he said he was going to the Heat.

I'm over it all though, I can't even watch CNN without LeBron shit coming on.

Your idiocy is remarkable sometimes clemens.

You think LJB will be there long... no

We will probably be going through this next summer .. more then likely

this is an experiment, so don`t think Lebron can`t go to Jersey, Knicks or Bulls next season or the season after.

As a league the NBA is retarded. Tell me how a player can run the league like this. It shouldn`t happen. It`s pathetic. Honestly, I don`t care about Lebron. I honestly feel there is a realistic idea that Tony Parker and Carmelo Anthony could come to the Knicks. Parker this year and Melo the next.

``Hating cause I didn`t get my way`` .... Only Clemens 11



And yet it has been happening for years, at least on a team-by-team level. How many superstars command unofficial final say in coaching and player acquisitions? For how many years have some of these teams been freeing up cap space, and in some cases making no attempt to win at the time, to try and woo James? The sad thing is that in the end some of these teams seemed to have misjudged what he wanted. His NBA salary is just a fraction of his income and teams like the Knicks and...ugh...Clippers can only offer money that loads of others could, and nothing else. No winning past or future.

The NBA put itself in this position. For how long have these players been hatching a plan to join up? Imagine if this happened in the NFL? What if Rivers, Andre Johnson, Peterson, Mangold, and a few defensive stars all arranged for their contracts to come up at the same time and jumped to a single team? Would never happen, because the NFL owners will never sell themselves out to the players like their NBA counterparts have. The NBA has thrown around all sorts of crazy contracts this year, and now we have three players joining together to manipulate the league and every team willing to dupe themselves into comping James/Wade/Bosh a meal in the hopes some veal and lobster will get them to change teams.

The NBA is pathetic. Someday a first overall draftee is going to holdout for part-ownership from some dumbass team, and get it.

Exterminate all rational thought, that is the conclusion I have come to

Alright now I'm faced with a moral dilemma. Suppose Gasol takes the Lakers to the Finals for a 3rd straight year. Suppose the Heat make it to the Finals. Who do I root for? The dude that just took an hour long shit on his homestate to play with his 2 buddies or Kobe? I'm kinda scared that as much as I hate Kobe, I respect the fact that was only 17 when he fucked over his home state.
