Jets Sign Fitzpatrick - 1 Yr 12Mil Guaranteed
vjdbbq Icon : (22 June 2016 - 07:29 AM) No Mario ; you will be there alone .
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 June 2016 - 07:15 PM) FIRE FITZPATRICK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 June 2016 - 12:00 PM) Sheldon Richardson suspended for 1 game for violating league substance abuse policy
ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:06 PM) The JETS shouldn't of signed wilkerson to such a big contract
ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:07 PM) he doesn't deserve $17 mil/year cause he is coming off an injury...he should of earned it by playing this year as the Franchise tag and then if he played lights out then you open the vault
MikeGangGree... Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:21 PM) WOOOOOOOO
RetireChrebet Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:58 PM) How much guaranteed money? also does this mean hes here for 6 years since he's tagged? how does that work?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (15 July 2016 - 10:20 PM) Now cut that street thug Wilkerson!!
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:47 AM) 54 million guaranteed
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:48 AM) 54 guaranteed against injury but 37 in straight guaranteed money without injury
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:49 AM) Should've waited till after the season to see how he comes off the injury but I guess they figure he wouldn't have signed if they waited another year
vjdbbq Icon : (17 July 2016 - 07:32 PM) Where is ROB and his ass ?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 July 2016 - 10:27 AM) guess that means richardson is gone after this season. Maybe we can franchise and trade him
Jetsman05 Icon : (22 July 2016 - 08:52 AM) whos running fantasy football league this year? brotana?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 July 2016 - 10:25 AM) darron lee still isn't signed... greedy street thug lol
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 July 2016 - 05:31 PM) Rich is under contract for next year and we used a team option for 17 already so he's a jet for 2 more year's for sure unless we trade him.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (23 July 2016 - 02:38 PM) We need to quit screwing around and sign Fitzpatrick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:34 AM) Jets salary cap situation is tough next season, gonna have to make adjustments
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:35 AM) the contract for Wilkerson is actually pretty good for both sides, after the first couple seasons nothing is guaranteed and they can cut him.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:36 AM) the jets probably should trade Richardson, hopefully he has a monster season and we have tons of leverage and deal him off for ransom
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:36 AM) Because we cannot afford to keep everyone on the DL
Jetsfan115 Icon : (25 July 2016 - 10:20 AM) we have 20 mil in space next offseason and not many people to sign. We should be ok next year. this year was worse. we could tag and trade richardson if need be. I think he will be gone too
vjdbbq Icon : (26 July 2016 - 07:28 AM) WE NEED FITZ WE NEED FITZ WE NEED FITZ
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 July 2016 - 09:51 AM) Yes we do need Fitz
Jetsfan115 Icon : (26 July 2016 - 10:58 AM) devin hester got cut by ATL today, anyone think we should grab him for special teams?
vjdbbq Icon : (26 July 2016 - 01:56 PM) Grab hester immediately
vjdbbq Icon : (26 July 2016 - 01:56 PM) GM Mike , GET HESTER
vjdbbq Icon : (26 July 2016 - 01:57 PM) Where is everybody ?
santana Icon : (26 July 2016 - 01:59 PM) http://www.thedrawpl...oundhogJets.png
santana Icon : (26 July 2016 - 03:05 PM) Jets don't need Hester. KR is really just not a priority in The nfl anymore

Posted 07 September 2010 - 07:27 AM



[quote][size="4"]As that noted NFL prognosticator [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Bugs+Bunny%22"]Bugs Bunny[/url] once said, I'll do it, but I'll probably hate myself in the morning.[/size]

[size="4"]The [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22New+York+Jets%22"]New York Jets[/url] will win [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Super+Bowl+XLV%22"]Super Bowl XLV[/url].[/size]

[size="4"]I know, I know. Any football follower can come up with 102 reasons why it won't happen, from the inexperience of quarterback [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Mark+Sanchez%22"]Mark Sanchez[/url] and a lackluster preseason for the offense to the holdout of cornerback [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Darrelle+Revis%22"]Darrelle Revis[/url] and early season absences of wide receiver [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Santonio+Holmes%22"]Santonio Holmes[/url] (suspension) and outside linebacker [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Calvin+Pace%22"]Calvin Pace[/url] (injury).[/size]

[size="4"]Plus the Jets are the "trendy" Super Bowl pick ... meaning virtually no one will actually pick them to win it all because the team is, well, trendy. (Dwell on that contradiction for a moment; it's the cousin of Yogi's "No one goes there anymore. It's too crowded.")[/size]

[size="4"]But face it: The real reason people laugh off the notion of the "other" New York team winning a title has nothing to do with their quarterback play or their coach or the bluster of "Hard Knocks," and everything to do with the fact they're the Jets.[/size]

[size="4"]This franchise is known not just for losing, but for losing on a tragicomic scale. No playoff appearances from 1970-80, only one (on an 8-8 season) from 1987-96. It was during that period that as a fan I sat through the Fake Spike Game, and the Kotite Error, and the endless refrain of Same Ol' Jets and Just End The Season and Gangrene and the New York Jest.[/size]

[size="4"]In a vacuum, the Super Bowl pick makes sense if you look at personnel and additions and the arc of the team. All things being equal, if this were Franchise X, many wouldn't have any reservations at all about picking this team. (My childhood fandom makes me more likely to run away screaming from this pick than tagging the team as a Super Bowl contender. Some scars never heal.)[/size]

[size="4"]And since 1997, the year [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Bill+Parcells%22"]Bill Parcells[/url] took over a 1-15 team, the Jets have had nine winning seasons and six playoff appearances, including two runs to the AFC Championship Game. There are more than a few teams that have not done that.[/size]

[size="4"]New York comes into the season with the No. 1 defense and top-rated rushing attack that subtracts a worn [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Thomas+Jones%22"]Thomas Jones[/url] (check out his numbers toward the end of the season) and adds [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22LaDainian+Tomlinson%22"]LaDainian Tomlinson[/url] (as a third-down back) to a backfield led by [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Shonn+Greene%22"]Shonn Greene[/url]. Sanchez showed postseason poise, and should reverse his 12 TD/20 INT ratio. The defense will remain dominant, with or without Revis. And the Jets welcome the pressure put upon them and applied themselves, from coach [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Rex+Ryan%22"]Rex Ryan[/url] on down. The whole brashness/cockiness thing doesn't really win or lose games, but you can make an argument that confidence, real confidence, does.[/size]

[size="4"]Here are some other predictions that may seem ridiculous now -- and worse come January:[/size]

[size="4"]The [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Indianapolis+Colts%22"]Indianapolis Colts[/url] will not make the playoffs. Their offensive line is in flux, the running game often is absent and their defense has been wracked by injury. And there is that bizarre/random factoid to consider that must have something to it more than just a "curse:" eight of the past 11 Super Bowl losers have failed to make the playoffs. [/size]

[size="4"]Neither will the [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Cincinnati+Bengals%22"]Cincinnati Bengals[/url]. Talk about a trendy pick about to blow up. The [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Arizona+Cardinals%22"]Arizona Cardinals[/url] and [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Philadelphia+Eagles%22"]Philadelphia Eagles[/url] are two other 2009 playoff teams that will be sitting out the 2010 postseason. New kids will be the [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Houston+Texans%22"]Houston Texans[/url] (finally), the [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Tennessee+Titans%22"]Tennessee Titans[/url], the San Francisco 49ers and the [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Washington+Redskins%22"]Washington Redskins[/url], which will secure a wild card slot.[/size]

[size="4"]The [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22New+York+Giants%22"]New York Giants[/url] are going nowhere. The G-men have the look of a team with some talent, more injuries and even more question marks. Another 8-8 campaign seems right for a squad that is good/flawed enough to win/lose against almost any team in the league.[/size]

[size="4"]The [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Buffalo+Bills%22"]Buffalo Bills[/url] are in great position to win ... the Jake Locker Sweepstakes. Buffalo is staring at 3-13, but will have a shot at finally grabbing their quarterback of the future, perhaps the [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22University+of+Washington%22"]University of Washington[/url] signal caller.[/size]

[size="4"]The [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Green+Bay+Packers%22"]Green Bay Packers[/url] (not the [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Minnesota+Vikings%22"]Minnesota Vikings[/url], which will squeak into the playoffs), will dominate the NFC and ride home field advantage to beating the [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22New+Orleans+Saints%22"]New Orleans Saints[/url] in the NFC Championship game.[/size]

[size="4"]Meanwhile, the Jets will beat the [url="http://www.timesunion.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=sports&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=%22Baltimore+Ravens%22"]Baltimore Ravens[/url] in the AFC title game, setting up a Jets-Packers Super Bowl XLV in Dallas next February.[/size]

[size="4"]A blog reader named Teddy R made a rather stunning prediction, if only because it exactly mirrors my own -- which is either an omen, or proof-positive it will never happen:[/size]

[size="4"]New York Jets 24 Green Bay Packers 21, in the first overtime Super Bowl.[/size]

[size="4"]If you are going to go wrong, go big. So go ahead and laugh. These predictions may very well crash and burn. But the Super Bowl pick makes sense, regardless of what I feel about it in the morning.[/size]

I agree. People are still stuck in the 80's and early 90's with their thoughts about the Jets. The Jets have been having success the last decade. AFC championship game and a few playoff runs. 2nd best in the East. It's time for US to take that step forward. To get back to the AFC championship game. If he can avoid the Peyton (Rex's killer) I think we'll go to the bowl or at least have a good chance.

If you could only hear some of the shit my giant fans friends say

i love the we overpaid for a shitty CB one. Its amazing how jealous they are. in reality the giants were the better franchise for 30 years but in the past 15 years its been pretty even except for the 1 SB win.

Giants fans for the most part remind me of Phin fans. They just say some painfully idiotic things that have little to no bearing. Unfortunately, I got a couple Giants fans in my circle and trust me, it's hard to tolerate. I know

and what more frustrating is the fact you say something bad about the giants and its cause you hate them lol. I d not hate teh giants, their fans however sometimes i do, but the team i don't. I'm just objective. I cna't understand looking at their roster why their fans think there a top team. I even had one tell me that revis couldn't shut down their steve smith and when i pointed out how he shut dwon way better WRs like moss, AJ, the better steve smith etc he had the nerve to tell me that smith is better then Andre Johnson. I alsmot pee'd myself form laughing that he thinks that cause smith had 1 good seaosn he is even near AJ

When I became a football fan, the Colts were a laughingstock. I remember in 5th grade, I won the class spelling bee and the teacher awarded me a "Colts" key chain. I left it in my desk on purpose. The Patriots went 9-39 at one point before they brought Tuna in. Past results don't guarantee future returns.
