MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 08:59 AM) It's going to cost us 6 because we are going to have to outbid a bunch of teams
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:52 AM) He is a good QB and I would love to have him. However IMO our 6 is not good value for us. Not to mention if he hates the idea of LA what is he going to think of NY? Contract situation would have to be worked out prior to trade as well. Extreme long shot to land Rivers. My money says we are more likely to land Brees.
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:53 AM) which is still a very long shot
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:46 AM) he may just hate ownership. LT's comments yesterday was interesting.
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) “I personally don’t think so,” Tomlinson said. “I really think this is a situation where Philip Rivers wants to move on. The reason why I think that and the reason why I feel like that is the Chargers have already approached Philip about doing another contract and he declined it. He doesn’t want anything to do with it; he didn’t even want to talk about another contract with the San Diego Chargers. That tells me that he’s thinking about moving on.”

“You never want to trade your franchise quarterback,” Tomlinson said, “that’s never the case. However, in this situation they might have no choice but to do so because I don’t know if Philip [Rivers] wants to be there anymore. I think he’s lost confidence in the organization. He’s seeing a lot of changes going on and the L.A. thing is valid; him not wanting to go to L.A., that is very valid, I can see that. So no, it doesn’t make sense to move on from Philip because he’s a franchise quarterback and he still has three to four very good years left.”
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) missed the LA line. nvm. guess that is a legit concern.
Mr_Jet Icon : (21 April 2015 - 03:57 PM) He doesn't want to play for a franchise based in Los Angeles, but he'd be okay with playing for one based in New York City?
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 04:28 PM) That's the point we have all been making.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:05 PM) Jets vs colts Monday night week2
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:09 PM) Jets open at home against the browns
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 : (Yesterday, 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 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

LOL why don't they see this guy is good for the NFL and lighten up a bit on him?

25k is a 20 dollar bill to us.

And they have to enforce the rules, it isn't like 85 cares either way.

But I do agree, it's annoying.

I still don't understand how holmes smokes pot and loses 4 games, vick dog fights (which is a horrible act, don't get me wrong) and loses 2 years and goes to prison, plax shoots himself loses his career and goes to prison, yet big ben rapes like 20 women and gets a 6 game suspension? That is all.

The difference between Vick and Burress and Roethlisberger is the fact the former two have been found guilty in a court of law while Big Ben is yet to be.

Ochocinco does add fun to the league and he is a great character, but I can understand the rules about tweeting during a game. Although given it was preseason the league could have been a bit more lenient. Anyway, doesn't that money go to charity as it is?

Holmes = busted smoking pot

Vick = convicted of dog fighting

Plaxico = convicted of the gun charge

Big Ben = not convicted of anything.


Oh and what does this have to do with 85? He wasn't suspended.

I think they settled out of court and that's the reason Big Ben got the suspension.

Thanks for the Memories

They need to leave Ocho alone. He's one of the best PR people the league has. Fining him for likely posting something on Twitter? Come on. There's hundreds if not thousands of fans that tune in just to see what kind of crazy shit he'll pull each week.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

I thought it was great when he dared to league to fine him for wearing pink cleats for the entire month of October to support breast cancer awareness. What a PR disaster for that NFL that would have been if they did.

ocho is one of my favorite non jets players. He isn't the reciever he once was anymore, but he is still one of the most entertaining guys who truly loves the game and his team. Hes the perfect temate, you never hear any complaints from his teamates or coaches, and he works hard and just enjoys playing like a kid.

The one thing that stands out to me that I respect the living hell out of Ocho for is that he SHOWS that he's not in the game for the money. He's in it for the love of the game and for the fans. If he was in it for the money, he'd surely not be doing the things he does and gets fined for.

A lot of other players around the league could learn a lot from him. I'd take him on the Jets in a heartbeat. Even with his skills not being what they once were, he's still a premiere receiver in this league.

I can honestly say everytime I hear Ben Rapistburgers name I shake my head and realize even though I love my country it has its problems. I know he was not convicted but he is as guilty as you get.

I look at it this way the rule for no electronic devices is there for a purpose.

One..... to keep teams from cheating and two..... to keep the game disciplined.


All of you are crying about him getting fined because he broke a rule. If coaches were using electronic devices for cheating youd be bitching. If your favorite team really sucked and all the players were on cellphones or playing video games on the sidelines youd be bitching.

The rule is there for a reason and he broke it. If the league starts being lenient on rules that are rightfully in place then who is to say it wouldnt start a problem with multiple players and coaches,etc. having devices.

How could you prove there wouldnt be cheating and many unfocused players?????

Good rule and justified fine.

AH, a voice of reason! You have a job(catch the football,score a touchdown, throw an occassional block)You get paid very well, there are rules and regulations. Break the rules, suffer the consequences. It IS that simple. In the real working world,if you continually thumb your nose to the employer, you'll probably find yourself somewhere else. By the way, does this ENTERTAINER not have his own TV show that one could watch to enjoy all of his hijinx and funniness?

Wasn't Bill Bellichump fined only $50,000 personally for his instructing videographers & other people to steal signals, etc in the whole Spygate scandal? Sending out a Tweet from his blackberry doesn't seem half as bad as what Bellichump did so why should the fine be so unbalanced?

I understand the need for discipline but c'mon. Let's actually take a look at the action, the surroundings and the circumstances surrounding the violation. He tweeted during a PRESEASON game. So what? I hope he appeals the fine and wins. The NFL needs more players like him.

Belichick was fined $500,000 rather than just 50 grand. They also lost a first round pick and, if I remember correctly, the Patriots organisation was hit with a whopping fine.
