Jetsfan115 Icon : (23 May 2016 - 02:21 PM) Fitzpatrick said he wants to play for the jets and that he won't retire
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (23 May 2016 - 06:50 PM) This street thug Darron Lee hasn't signed yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 May 2016 - 05:32 PM) that damn dirty street thug
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 May 2016 - 10:28 AM) jets offered fitz 3 years 24 million dollar deal. 12 million for 2016 and 6 million each for 2017 and 2018. fitz is unhappy with the 2017 and 2018 number
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 01:45 PM) Street thug
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 01:47 PM) I really don't like Devin Smith he cost us 2 games last season with his hands of stone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) he's a rookie
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) i'm more concerned we really don't have a slot WR. all of our guys are outside guys
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) i wonder if amaro is gonna be a big slit guy and blocker for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) slot
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 09:22 PM) Sources told NY daily news.Fitzpatrick is about to sign 1 year deal
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 10:06 PM) We didn't have a slot WR last year also. I do Amaro steps up I really do like him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 June 2016 - 09:46 AM) Ok so the jets won't take the deal. My question is why?? 1 year 12 million when they are already offering him 12 million in his first year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:24 PM) 2 reasons, 1st off for salary cap relief this year. we have no cap room this year but plenty next year. a multi year deal and backload the contract and 2, why pay a guy 12 mil for 1 year with no guarentee and go thorugh this again
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:24 PM) fitz said he'd take a 1 year deal but jets don't want that
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:25 PM) they should offer him a 3 years for 30 mil. 12 this year (half in the signing bonus for cap relief) 10 mil next year and 8 mil the 3rd year. 1st 2 years guarenteed (22 mil)
RetireChrebet Icon : (03 June 2016 - 03:37 AM) You know your fucked when the biggest offseason story is can we convince a journeyman QB whom singlehandedly threw us out of the playoffs last year to sign a deal worth way more than his actual value!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 09:59 AM) Ok jets brothers I need fantasy football help. Who should I keep in my keepers league. We have to decide by July
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:00 AM) Should I keep Cam Gurley or Bell?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:01 AM) Cam had a monster year last year and in our league it's 6 points per PassTd and cam is getting his best WR back.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:01 AM) Gurley was a monster last year as a rookie
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:03 AM) Bell missed most of the year with a injury but it's also a PPR league. In only 6 games last year he =100 points
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:04 AM) Cam also had 45 total TDs last year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) I'd keep bell
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) there are maybe like 5 #1 fantasy RBs at best and you need to start at least 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) QBs are easier to find. I had cam in 2 leagues and drafted him way late. RBs are impossible to find late
MikeGangGree... Icon : (04 June 2016 - 07:53 PM) FIRE FITZPATRICK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (04 June 2016 - 07:53 PM) That Damn dirty street thug
MikeGangGree... Icon : (05 June 2016 - 09:43 PM) In other news the NBA finals is like A NFL team Playing a college football team.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (06 June 2016 - 11:23 AM) line is in. jets are favorites for 5 games, pick for 2, and underdog for 9
MikeGangGree... Icon : (08 June 2016 - 04:56 PM) We play better as a underdog
santana Icon : (12 June 2016 - 03:54 PM) JETS JETS JETS
santana Icon : (13 June 2016 - 09:28 AM) Update on the #Jets situation with Ryan Fitzpatrick: Nothing. … Just nothing. Doesn't seem like things will change heading into minicamp.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 June 2016 - 10:39 AM) yeah every day i check for an update and every day, nothing
vjdbbq Icon : (14 June 2016 - 05:43 AM) Where's Rob and his ass ?
Mario Icon : (20 June 2016 - 06:21 PM) Any Jets fan in the Kansas city, Missouri area, that will be going to the game on the 25th of September?
vjdbbq Icon : (22 June 2016 - 07:29 AM) No Mario ; you will be there alone .

The Year the Jets Tackled Television

*
By JASON GAY

If America can sustain interest in the lives of not one, or two, but three Kardashian sisters, it can tolerate the New York Jets. That is one presumption guiding the latest season of "Hard Knocks," the HBO documentary series which, like a truffle hunter, believes that intrigue can be found in the muck of the NFL preseason.

Previous editions of "Hard Knocks" have chronicled teams like the Baltimore Ravens, the Cowboys of Dallas and, of course, the 2007 Kansas City Chiefs, who would go on to spellbind the nation with a 4-12 season. This year, the Turtle & Drama network has chosen the Jets, a confident if tormented franchise fueled by generations of mocking disrespect. What's next? A group of spray-tanned New Jersey kids getting a hit show on MTV?



Surely by now you've heard that the star of "Hard Knocks" is Rex Ryan, the brash, oversized tactician who, in between fistfuls of M&Ms, has emerged as New York's most charismatic coach in ages. Most NFL coaches are tightly-wound doorknobs, but the 47-year-old Mr. Ryan is unbridled id—he says what he thinks, even if he thinks unspeakable things, like the Jets will win the Super Bowl. He's already been bashed for cursing too much in "Hard Knocks," but it was more shocking that anyone was shocked.

Cursing football coaches? What's next? Frustrated wide receivers?

We wished "Hard Knocks" divulged more eccentric Jet behavior—revealing, for example, that general manager Mike Tannenbaum spends one day each week constructing a family of stuffed pandas at the Build-A-Bear Workshop. But the action through the first two "Hard Knocks" has been dutifully conventional: struggling rookies, wily veterans, scrappy assistant coaches. An NFL camp naturally has the arc of a reality show—strangers meet in a single location with bad furniture, fight it out, flourish, or get sent home to obscurity, or worse, a contract with the Oakland Raiders.

Still, it's not easy to make this compelling. Preseason NFL football is considered the most meaningless sporting activity on earth, next to Pittsburgh Pirates baseball. At times "Hard Knocks" appears inorganically goosed, like when Jets legend Joe Namath arrives at camp wearing a pair of white shorts ratcheted at his navel, and Bob Denver's haircut. One empathizes with the banal life of the "Hard Knocks" crew, lugging heavy equipment to a movie theater to film Mr. Ryan taking his men to "Dinner with Schmucks." The Frozen Tundra, this is not.

But it looks great. It sounds great, too—thanks to the mellifluous baritone of the New York actor Liev Schreiber, who somehow makes honey out of turgid lines like "Ryan has plenty of brio, but he's also got bona fides." Edited on the fly, "Hard Knocks" is less a documentary than it is a tone poem—it emotes and mythologizes, sometimes too enthusiastically, as it did when Mr. Schreiber intoned that the holdout of cornerback Darrelle Revis was "the biggest story of the NFL preseason."

Oh, really? Somebody tell that 40-year-old drama junkie up in Minnesota with the copters over his head.

So far, Mr. Revis has avoided the HBO spotlight, which reveals something about the star and the culture of his team. Despite all the Super Bowl buzz and Mr. Ryan's potty mouth, this "Hard Knocks" is proving that the 2010 Jets are less a team of flashy extroverts than they are working stiffs. They want to win, but are content to let the coach suck up the oxygen. There is no Jet who is one-hundredth as kooky as Roger Mayweather, the boxing coach and Cosmo Kramer of the peerless HBO boxing series, 24/7.

Except for, perhaps: cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who stole the last "Hard Knocks" with an interview in which he methodically listed the names and ages of his eight children, at least four of whom appear to be around three years of age, and are not twins, triplets or quadruplets.

It was the type of you-had-to-see it moment that makes all the downtime worth it. You know, just like watching an NFL game.

Good read. We also locked up 3 MNF games, plus the slide scheduling... We'll be under the spotlight all year and that comes from 1 of 2 scenarios. We either rape everyone like Tom DuBois and the attention is on our dominance... Or we suck dick and everybody wants to watch us eat crow as we fall
