Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:14 PM) He could throw for 25 TDs if he starts every game
Chaos Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:18 PM) 2009 with a Favre and Rex pairing could have been special
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 August 2015 - 09:20 PM) ok so who thinks geno has played his last game of his JETS career?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 August 2015 - 09:23 PM) I honestly think his JETS career is knocked out like that right hand by IK
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 August 2015 - 08:50 PM) why the hell can't the JETS ever get it right
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 August 2015 - 08:50 PM) are we doomed for all eternity?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 August 2015 - 01:56 PM) kerly might be losing his job to a younger WR

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Which receiver is Kerley losing his job to?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Kerley is still gonna be our slot receiver. Devin Smith is a outside WR, deep threat and hes gonna be out for a bit.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:32 PM) though Brandon Marshall likes playing in the slot at times and does work there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 01:27 PM) he's apparently battling (and losing to) enuiwa
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 01:28 PM) enunwa^
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:26 PM) I haven't heard about that

Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:12 AM) sounds like the jets think kerly is too small for what they want
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:13 AM) if enunwa is our 3rd WR that gives us 3 starting Wrs over 6-2. compared to the 5'7 kerly.
RetireChrebet Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:32 PM) Hopefully enunwa pans out. The jets need to start catching talent in he late rounds like most successful teams do.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (21 August 2015 - 03:05 PM) MT did for us
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

In regards to the positions of cb /fs/ss it affirms to me that bringing in players with equal ability as compared to #1 Wr. was spot on by I calling for brad smith playing Defense as well if need be. It would be much like Terrel Ownes covering Randy Moss to help his team.

The Holdout, in Darrelle Revisís Words
By TONI MONKOVIC
New York Jets

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis discussed his holdout with reporters on Monday, and how it came to an end. He said he wouldnít wish his experience on any N.F.L. player, describing the final negotiating session as fierce.

ďYou donít want to be in one of those,Ē he said.

He made clear his affinity for Coach Rex Ryan, and said it was helpful to get to know the owner, Woody Johnson.

Hereís the transcript, as provided by the Jets.

Opening StatementÖ
I just want to thank my family, Mr. (Woody) Johnson, Mr. (Mike) Tannenbaum, Rex (Ryan) and everybody for supporting me. (Iím) sorry to the fans. This was a long process. It was rough on me. Iím a football player and I love to play the game. Iím happy itís over with so I can go play football now.

On if he ever thought a deal wouldnít get doneÖ
I really donít know. I had a million thoughts in my head. (I was) hoping it would get done so I could play football, but when youíre in a process like this itís very tough. You just have to stick by the close people, your family and friends and just weigh it out the best that you can.

On the influence Mr. Johnson and Coach Ryan had by coming down to FloridaÖ
It meant a lot to me. It showed the passion they have for them to come down to Florida and just chat with me (to) see if we could come to a common ground and both sides could see the right thing. I think it was good. I got to know Woody a little more. That was really the first time I sat in a conference room with him and really got to know him. It was a good deal. Me and Rex, we go way back. Thereís the love there with me and Rex. I was happy to see him. It was good for them to come down. I havenít seen (any) of my teammates, except (on) Hard Knocks. I havenít seen them, so it was good to see those guys.

On what Coach Ryan said to himÖ
He was smiling like he took a trip to Disney World. I was smiling back because this is like a home to me, here with the New York Jets. It was just good to see him and work something out when we were down there to try to get me back up here.

On his reaction to Coach Ryan being in the negotiationsÖ
The crazy thing about negotiations is thatís the first time Iíve been in a negotiating room like that. You donít want to be in one of those. Both sides (are) scratching and fighting. Theyíre just trying to do the right thing. Guys are looking out for the Jets organization and my representatives are looking out for me. It was a little bit rough. Iíve never seen Rex like that. I was just sitting back and observing the whole thing. It was crazy, but it was a good deal.

On if his patience was tested during this five week periodÖ
I just tried to relax and tried to step away. This process, I donít wish it upon (any) NFL player to go through it. It was something in my life I had to go through. I never thought it was going to turn out to be like this. It (got) a little bit crazy, but itís something I had to go through.

On if this experience changed himÖ
This experience humbled me very much just because I love to play football. At one point, something was taken away from me that I love to do. I never had (anything) taken away from me that I love to do. This was a point in my life where it was serious. I didnít know my future. I didnít know where I was going to end up. I didnít know anything until I heard from my representatives. Iím just happy itís all over with now.

On if he can put everything thatís happened behind himÖ
Yes. I know itís business. Even when you hear those things, you try to look at it in a brighter picture. Thatís what I tried to do because I know that negotiations are crazy. Like I said, my representatives are fighting for me and the Jets are fighting for their organization.

On if the deal would have gotten done if Mr. Johnson and Coach Ryan didnít come down to FloridaÖ
I have no clue, but they did, so that was a good thing.

On when he knew they were coming downÖ
I didnít know until the last minute. Actually, (I didnít know) until that day.

On who told him they were comingÖ
My representatives. They told me. At first, I kind of questioned it and said, ĎFor what?í Iím like, ĎWhy do I need to be at the meeting? Iím not negotiating. I donít do that.í I was just like, ĎWhy would they want to meet?í As I thought about it a little bit more, I guess it was to do a deal and come to common ground.

On what the most meaningful thing Coach Ryan told himÖ
That he wants to see me up here with the team. I told him I wanted to be up here. It was hurting me so bad not to be here because I didnít know how my teammates were going to accept me because I wasnít here in training camp. Iíve been on the news every other day and Iím sure they were tired of hearing my name.

On if Coach Ryan talked about the special opportunity he could have with this teamÖ
No, he didnít really get into that. I already knew what the opportunity is here. Like I told you guys before, I want to be a Jet. I want to be here. I donít want to go to any other team.

On when he walked out on to the field todayÖ
I had butterflies because, like I said before, I didnít know how my teammates were going to accept me because I havenít been here for a month. I had butterflies, but after they started chanting my name a little bit, it was a good feeling. It was good to see the guys and I just wanted to be around them because I havenít been here for a while, so it was a good feeling.

On if there was a point where he felt he would sit out the entire seasonÖ
It crosses your mind, but you donít know whatís going to happen. The one thing I tried to do was just to keep working out and stay in shape, so whenever I got that call, I was going to be ready to go and Iíd be ready to play this season.

On where he worked out during his holdoutÖ
Well, you guys know I go to Phoenix, Arizona. Then, I went to Florida. Then, I went to my hometown, where Rich (Cimini) met my grandma. (Laughing) Then, once I heard he was in town, I had to get out of there like Carmen Sandiego. I was just moving around to places and working out. I had a duffel bag and everywhere I went, I had my workout clothes, and I was just trying to stay in shape until I got the call.

On if he think he is in football shapeÖ

I think Iíll be able to play in Monday nightís game. Iím in shape, but like you said, football shape, thatís totally different. I havenít had pads on. I havenít had contact, so itís something that I have to get back into and take it slow in the process.

On if heíll go to Coach Ryan during the game if he needs to sit out any playsÖ
Thatís going to be hard for me to do, but they already told me if I feel like somethingís wrong, then call on them and theyíll take me out for a couple of series.

On if he was optimistic when Coach Ryan and Mr. Johnson left him in FloridaÖ
I think that was a breakthrough, I really do. I thought it was a breakthrough by them coming down, like I said, because I havenít seen them. It was talks with my agents and Tannenbaum most of the time. I thought when they both came down, it was a big step for this whole situation to move forward.

On if he was ever close to accepting a longer dealÖ
Thereís been a lot of proposals that have been sent over. At this point, we just came to a middle (ground) and we found what was best for both parties. Thatís why I think they came down to Florida for the meeting, just to get something done, so I could get on the field.

On if he was on the phone when Coach Ryan had his temper tantrumÖ
No.
On if Coach Ryan got upset at all during their meeting in FloridaÖ
No. It was just good talks, just listening to both partiesí sides and (talking about) how we can better the situation to getting me back up here and playing football.
On how much footage he has watched of Anquan BoldinÖ
A lot. I got my game film before I left here. You guys know me, Iím always trying to be the best and Iím always trying to study and do what I have to do. I always prepare myself. Like I said, Iíve been working out (and) Iíve been doing what I needed to do. (I was) just waiting for that call, so I could be ready and go out there and compete.
On how good the defense will be with him back in itÖ
Theyíre good without me. I think Iím just another piece to the puzzle thatís just trying to help this team get to the Super Bowl.
On why he came off his demand to be the highest-paid cornerbackÖ
Nnamdi (Asomugha) is the highest-paid at his position. People say Iím the best player, and I think, at that point, I wanted to be paid as the best, and I didnít think there was anything wrong with that.
On if he ever regretted holding out after watching DíBrickashaw Ferguson and Nick Mangold get extensionsÖ
No, that was their situations, and thatís how they won their battles. They had their deals done, and I was happy for those guys. I texted those guys and congratulated them, but I knew I had to handle my situation in a different way.
On when he was most pessimistic during the holdoutÖ
All 36 (days). I wasnít happy, but I know there is two different sides, the business side and the football side. This is something Iím learning as well, the business side of it, how good it can be and how nasty it can get. Iím happy to have gone through this process, and itís helped me, and now Iím moving forward.
On the most passionate thing Coach Ryan said to himÖ
I think whatever Rex says, it will get you a little bit hyper. Heís a passionate guy, always talking positive (and) always talking about the team, as well. This is just something where we met (and) I kind of knew how him and me were going to kick it off. Like I said earlier, when I met Woody down there, it was good, because I never sat down with Woody on a one-on-one basis and talked to him. I got to know Woody a little bit better, but Rex and me, we kicked it off well and we are on the same page.
On what Coach Ryan said to him in their meetingÖ
ďWe need to get you up here. We need you to play. We need you to win a Super Bowl.Ē I mean, it was just simple talk, and itís the same things weíve been talking about since the season was over, even while we were in season last year.
On if itís hard to say no to Coach RyanÖ
Yeah, Iíll say so.
