Geno injured, IK cut, Amish Rifle starting - http://nyjetsfan.com...showtopic=38773
santana Icon : (14 August 2015 - 09:02 PM) fitz is probably the best qb the jets have had in the last 3/4 years
santana Icon : (14 August 2015 - 09:02 PM) depressing
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) depressing but true
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) Fitzpatrick can play at a average level, the Jets have had QB play on the below average level
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) Fitzpatrick not being mentioned as a NFL worst starter is a upgrade for this team
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
GreenDude Icon : (18 August 2015 - 06:34 PM) We just signed Matt Flynn
santana Icon : (18 August 2015 - 07:02 PM) FLYNNNNSANITYYY
santana Icon : (18 August 2015 - 07:02 PM) hype hype hype
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
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:28 PM) I read how kerley has been uncover able one on one
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:57 PM) http://www.nj.com/je...ey_backups.html
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:57 PM) http://nypost.com/20...appearing-role/
Smedsthejet Icon : (19 August 2015 - 03:03 PM) Any news on how Shaq Evans is performing?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:12 AM) http://nypost.com/20...ricks-of-trade/
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
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 09:30 AM) Also i suspect that santana
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 09:30 AM) might be santana
santana Icon : (27 August 2015 - 01:35 PM) Tough draw for Liverpool
Jetsman05 Icon : (27 August 2015 - 02:21 PM) Suarez second best in Europe... pretty good

[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."
