OFF SEASON ALMOST OVER AUG 13 VS LIONS
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:37 PM) rumor has it he wanted a raise over his $5.5 million base this year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:39 PM) 33 is young for a guard. he's got at least 3-4 more years in him
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Mmmmm I disagree.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) I would go 2 year deal.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 June 2015 - 10:40 PM) TEH WARRIORS
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE BURKE
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 June 2015 - 06:27 PM) THE A-ROD!!
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:19 PM) god damn week no activity in here
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (29 June 2015 - 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 June 2015 - 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (29 June 2015 - 08:59 PM) I feel fast.
azjetfan Icon : (01 July 2015 - 07:53 PM) Shot an 86 today. Personal best.
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) well done

blk_orion Icon : (02 July 2015 - 08:57 AM) play what? golf?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) Sheldon Richardson suspended 4 game for substance abuse.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) f***
ganggreen2003 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 06:15 PM) DAMNIT TO f***ing HELL!!!!
azjetfan Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:46 PM) Yup. Golf. I'm ready to take on Tiger. Mid season form. For what ever reason I am hitting the driver great. 280 and fairly controlled. I'm playing again Saturday.

[b]Woody at KO Luncheon: All Coming Together[/b]
Posted 11 hours ago

[list][*][url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/news/article-1/Woody-at-KO-Luncheon-All-Coming-Together/b918b61c-0e54-48e8-a8d7-1bda775ab2b7#"]a[/url][*][url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/news/article-1/Woody-at-KO-Luncheon-All-Coming-Together/b918b61c-0e54-48e8-a8d7-1bda775ab2b7#"]a[/url][/list]For most of the New York Jets, it was a long busride into the city. Veteran linebacker [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/jason-taylor/e5748736-cb65-4593-a68a-ebabc7307502/"]Jason Taylor[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url] only needed a quick cabride. They all came to Cipriani Wall Street today to attend the 10th annual Jets Kickoff Luncheon.

For the fourth year in a row, Cipriani hosted the event, which raised money for the Jets Foundation and Alliance for Lupus Research. Jets owner Woody Johnson thanked the celebrities and donors in attendance while players and coaches mingled and dined before getting back on their buses and heading for their Philadelphia hotel in advance of Thursday night's preseason finale against the Eagles.

“It’s like the Jets, it’s like this lunch — everything is coming together for us,” Johnson said. “We have a new stadium, a new practice facility, a coach in his second year, we have Mike Tannenbaum, a great, great coaching staff, and we are poised to make something happen. I’m very proud of what we’ve done together.”

Among those in attendance were Donald Trump, a generous donor to the Alliance for Lupus Research, and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who started his NFL career as a Jets intern. In addition, New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made remarks about the Jets’ upcoming season and dedication to supporting charities throughout the tristate area.

“There’s one thing I do appreciate even more,” Bloomberg said after joking about appreciating a chance to play cornerback, “and that’s the Jets' longstanding commitment of giving back to our communities both here and across the river and around this country. Whether it is fighting childhood obesity in our schools or taking aim at the debilitating disease of lupus, they are there.”

As the host of the event, it is clear that Johnson and his family live up to that commitment on a daily basis. Johnson mentioned that his daughter was diagnosed with lupus and that prompted him to battle the disease through the Jets Foundation and ALR, which have raised more money for lupus research than any other non-governmental organization in the entire country.

“If you have any acquaintance with the Johnson family,” Christie said, “they do extraordinary things very quietly for people in need all across this region. And they do it without looking for credit, they do it because it’s the right thing to do and because they care about making my state, our region and our country a better place.”

After the remarks about the purpose of the day’s event, an inspiring video of Jets highlights from 2009 was shown, and it drew goosebumps from the members of the audience. Following the video was head coach Rex Ryan who addressed the group and “volunteered” fullback [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/tony-richardson/37339d35-8bcc-4e51-bc9f-e567fafaf067/"]Tony Richardson[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url] and safety [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/jim-leonhard/dd5683d8-73d4-4b20-afac-dfd0eed07e04/"]Jim Leonhard[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url] to speak on behalf of the offense and the defense respectively.

“This year we’re set up,” Ryan said. “We said we want to win the Super Bowl. We don’t care if you know it, like it or anything else. This time last year I kept hearing all this 'same old Jets' stuff. It’s funny, I’m not hearing that anymore. Our expectations are to win the Super Bowl and we’re going to take it any way possible.”

With a clear change of tone to football related topics, Leonhard discussed the defense, which finished first in seven statistical categories and was a unit that “no one wanted to face”. The team returns many starters but has also added threatening pieces such as Taylor, cornerback [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/antonio-cromartie/ca33331d-4119-43f8-b860-1c4e534ccb1c/"]Antonio Cromartie[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url] and safety [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/brodney-pool/ea7f383f-802f-4185-82d3-4ff11ab6a2df/"]Brodney Pool[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url].

“We feel like we’ve done everything in our ability to get to that next level, which is what we always talk about,” Leonhard said. “The organization, obviously the stadium — as players, there’s nothing more we can ask for. The organization did their part, it’s our turn to give back to them. So we’ve put in a lot of hard work.”

Richardson, one of the Jets' elder statesmen, discussed the offense’s general plan for this season. With the addition of [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/ladainian-tomlinson/fef12a80-4e41-42b2-a86f-850b85bbc876/"]LaDainian Tomlinson[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url], former league MVP and future Hall of Famer, and former Super Bowl MVP [url="http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/roster/santonio-holmes/bc286762-6be0-4adf-b44f-2f723f0f17aa/"]Santonio Holmes[img]http://www.newyorkjets.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif[/img][/url], the offense is poised to be highly productive. In a perfect summation of the day’s celebration, Richardson talked about the Jets’ abilities with the pads on and also out in the community.

"We’re going to work really, really hard this year," he said. "We have goals set out in front of us and we have a tremendous group of players who are committed to doing the right things both on and off the football field."
