Jets hire Maccagnan as GM and Bowles as HC. Who's starting the billboard fundraiser?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:14 PM) There are some decent FAs I hope we go after, we have like $48 mil in cap space, plus more once we get rid of Chris Johnson and Calvin Pace.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:56 PM) Lol for someone who doesn't like me and doesn't pay attention to what I have to say, GG sure loves talking about me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:57 PM) We just need a QB to throw to them
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:25 PM) if we release Harvin, we won't get him back most likely. Hes the most dynamic offensive player we have had in a while.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:26 PM) Plus he has no guaranteed money so we can release him at any time for no cap hits. Maybe they can rework his contract, but I hope we keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:48 PM) I think he does restructure though, can't imagine Brick wanting to play elsewhere. I see him as a career Jet
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:59 PM) I think that Oday would be fine as a starter for one spot, he showed promise. Plus it would be a competition between Oday, Winters, and Dozier.
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 12:31 PM) Iupati would be a great signing. If Harvin doesn't restructure I would not be opposed to cutting him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:47 PM) See this is why you can't be taken seriously harlem
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:47 PM) Orlando Franklin is a FLAG machine
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:48 PM) he'd just be our 2014 version of Colon
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:48 PM) HELL NO TO ORLANDO
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:42 PM) Still paying attention to what I say, huh?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:43 PM) You are the wind beneath my wiiiiiiiings
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:46 PM) 0099 said he'd be happy with Franklin too, but you only bitch about when I said it. Seems legit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:12 PM) it is legit cause you're wasting bandwith with that bullsh*t
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:43 PM) Wasting bandwidth saying I want a certain player when someone else said they wanted the exact same player?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:43 PM) How much activity was my one sentence really cluttering lol
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:44 PM) Like I said GG I still love you
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:46 PM) http://youtu.be/c9ZMDPf9hZw
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 11:21 AM) Today is a big day

I've figured out the moral of the story: Stay in school.

Wade: 3 years at Marquette
Bosh: 1 year at Georgia Tech
The kid from Akron: no college

The most educated guy convinced his dumber friends to come play on his team for less money.

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.


I don't think 6 years after LeBron retires and he goes into the Hall of Fame people are going to be saying "he was the third highest paid player on his team. Who the hell remembers how much Kareem's contract was for and how much Magic's contract was for?

If they win a championship together with the Heat Wade's ring is not going to be bigger than LeBron's ring. Wade's ring isn't going to have more diamonds on it or have more karats of gold in it. They are all going to get the same ring. The ring Kobe Bryant has for 2009 is the same one DJ Mbanga has and it will be the same for 2010. One player doesn't get a bigger more special ring than the other players do. The players names don't go on the championship banners the team name does.

And maybe LeBron was never meant to be a team's leading scorer. I believe that is something he is not suited to be. He is suited to be a facilitator and make average players play like good players and good players play like great players.

I do agree though that he should have handled the whole situation better. He should have told Dan Gilbert he was leaving. That was very cold and careless. BUT like Mark Jackson said many times owners and GMs trade players and don't call them to tell them they've been traded. So I can't feel that bad for Dan Gilbert.

In regards of CNN they might as well change their name to Celebrity News Network. The only news they and all the other cable news channels can honestly report is what Sarah Palin's farts smelled like today.

Eh. I'm done going on and on about LeBron, we have different opinions on him. He isn't the King anymore. (although I am surprised that Wade was the one who took the lesser deal, but they all signed 100M+, not sure how it's all going to work out).

The Bulls signed Reddick to an offer sheet, I hope the Magic match it.

To be fair, all the reports leading into this was that LeBron was going to have to take less money then the rest. Instead they did a S+T

By the way Dubb, in all the contracts they have a 4 year void in them if they choose, and the 6th year is an option.

That's a great analogy. The NWO eventually, to my mind, killed pro wrestling and turned it into the awful product it is today. The hijacking of the NBA by three of it's biggest stars is an apt parallel..

Oh, and Gilbert talks trash like a ring manager.

The AOL and Time Warner merger is what killed WCW and created the McMahon's monopoly. Nitro was still TNT's highest rated show in early 2001 but Time Warner wanted to get out of the rasslin' business and turn TNT into an all drama station. Vince McMahon's monopoly over the industry as a result is what killed pro wrestling.


Bosh, Wade, and LeBron did not hijack the NBA. It wasn't any of them that made the trades and designed the contracts for other players that created the Heat's cap space. None of them negotiated the collective bargaining agreement to favor just the three of them. The only ones to blame for this is Pat Riley and the numerous corporate sponsored All-American high school basketball camps and games.
