ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6
MikeGangGree... Icon : (24 April 2015 - 09:40 PM) TEH RANGERS
santana Icon : (24 April 2015 - 11:32 PM) TEH WIZ
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:57 AM) Teh Suarez
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) Vic Beasley is all speed. No moves, no power. Straight up the field. Could have some big games, then nothing in the next
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) If we don't get Mariota, we should be looking at Schreff or trading down, IMO.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) A lot of good edge rushers in this draft... I wouldn't want to take Dupree that high.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 AM) Until next time fellas!
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:19 PM) Helloooooooooo

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).

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.


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.
