MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 August 2015 - 06:49 AM) WOOOOO
Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:10 AM) Jets just announced first 12 players to be released:
Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:10 AM) T. J. Graham, Saalim Hakim, Austin Hill, DeVier Posey, Jonathon Rumph (WRs), Matt LaCosse (TE), James Brewer, Dalton Freeman (OL), Bryan Johnson (LB), Javier Arenas, Curtis Brown, Keith Lewis (DBs)
Smedsthejet Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:11 AM) A little surprised that Posey is gone in this first batch of moves, but then we did have a glut of WRs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (30 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Any word on Leonard Williams injury?
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2015 - 11:49 PM) He will be ready week 1. Just a sprain
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 10:33 AM) so we whooped the giants ass pretty badly
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 10:38 AM) bills cut fred jackson
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:29 PM) We got lucky with Williams
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:30 PM) Hes looked like a beast as well, so we need him healthy. Hes gonna be a future all pro
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Our offense can be competent this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 12:33 PM) Zac Stacy was a good add
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:46 PM) I'm surprised Freeman was cut, I thought he was a solid backup center. Guess they like Wesley Johnson better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:58 PM) our offense is passable. we should put up 14-17 a game average
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:58 PM) should be enough for our Defense. our d-line is nasty with wilk, rich, snacks, and now williams
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:59 PM) out MLBs get picked on in coverage though. davis had a rough game
Jetsfan115 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 01:59 PM) our Cbs are way too good. cro revis and skrine. plus mcdougle looked solid. when milliner comes back, him being a dime back could be huge too
Jetsman05 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 02:24 PM) 17 points a game is "passable"? If we average 17 a game this season, we won't win more than 5 ball games.
Jetsman05 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 02:24 PM) Needs to be 20+
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 05:33 PM) Our offense should be better than its been in years
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 August 2015 - 05:34 PM) which wouldn't take much
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:03 PM) another ex jet going to the pats http://theredzone.or...ms/Default.aspx
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:04 PM) our defense should allow an average of less then 14 a game IMO. If we can average 17 a agme I think we can win 9-10
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:25 PM) Jace Amaro was put on IR, torn labrum.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 12:26 PM) That sucks, I was looking forward to him at TE
ROBJETS Icon : (01 September 2015 - 07:24 PM) Labrum tear....definitely out for the year. Its not a bad surgery. I used the sling for about a week before I ditched it completely. Supposed to use it for a full 6 weeks. You can get away without it but just have to be careful not raising or moving your arm much and no lifting of pretty much anything. As far as fully healing ....6 mon ths minimum but for lifting heavy and full contact sports I wouldnt trust 6 months
ROBJETS Icon : (01 September 2015 - 07:31 PM) Still not that bad of a surgery on a pain scale. after a few days it mostly just aches like hell. ice and keeping your arm still is important. sleeping is major hard for the first 3 weeks or so. You wake up in pain a god bit. Id be dreaming and jerk my right arm up or move it wrong or lay on it wrong and wake up in major pain. still I liked t better without the sling than being completely immobile with one arm and healed just fine. He will come back from it fine
ganggreen2003 Icon : (01 September 2015 - 08:37 PM) sucks we lost Amaro for the season
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:34 AM) http://sport.woot.co...ef=gh_sp_6_wp_3
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:47 AM) No suspension for Brady, what a joke
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 12:26 PM) I don't think it is a joke but f*** him.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:15 PM) f*** new england
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:15 PM) he still was behind the balls being deflated
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) he authorized those 2 employees to do that to the footballs
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) he is a diva so f*** that classless organization
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:21 PM) it's especially sickening living in the middle of CHEATriot country and listening to these assclowns up here make excuses for their POS QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:21 PM) and that classless organization
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 05:13 PM) who's watching this game tonight?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:09 PM) INT and then he fumbles it away
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:09 PM) f***ing Walls
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:15 PM) Stacy is runnin the rock
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:15 PM) all running plays so far

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
