JSOTF Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:37 AM) They havent fucked with a disgruntled, lifelong Jets fan!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (26 March 2015 - 02:49 PM) Got my tickets from Ticketmaster the day they went on general sale
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma
JSOTF Icon : (27 March 2015 - 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany
azjetfan Icon : (27 March 2015 - 09:08 PM) Just got done sitting in traffic for 3 hours in Louisville KY.
azjetfan Icon : (27 March 2015 - 09:09 PM) Unbelievably poor planning by the DOT.
santana Icon : (28 March 2015 - 05:48 PM) Favre on my TV selling shaving razors so I bought a years supply
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:12 PM) Soooo has anyone had any experience with the new Sling Tv?
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:13 PM) $20 a month gets you ESPN and 15 other channels.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:18 PM) All streamed.
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:57 PM) negative
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:58 PM) I'm a fan of the apple tv though. I just use a clients fios tv account to access the different services like watch espn
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:59 PM) i also have hbo go netflix amazon prime. with hd antennas i get the local channels as well.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:00 PM) I tried the watch ESPN ap but since I cancelled my DTV it said I needed a provider.
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:10 PM) yep need an account
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:11 PM) nbc sports app also works really well I airplay that to the appletv
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 09:01 PM) Alright signed up for the sling TV bit.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 09:01 PM) Pretty cool so far.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 12:56 AM) mock drafts have mariota going to the jets and the rest seem to have no clue
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:25 AM) I think he will be gone before that
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:25 AM) Either someone will trade up or he will be taken by Titans or Redskins
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:58 PM) JEts are going to remain at florham park for training camp
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:58 PM) no cortland or hofstra
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:12 PM) Unless you guys are looking for internet tv alternatives to cable or satellite tv You are better off just buying a slingbox http://www.slingbox.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:15 PM) I like Directv better but ine thing Dishnetwork has is an integrated slinbox into the Genie so it is far better receiver than Directv`s
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:18 PM) With a slingbox you can just login to Slingbox and you can watch every single channel you have at home with the same guide and remote. A Slingbox basically makes it as if you have a receiver anywhere in the world you have internet access. So you get every single channel that you get at home with all the functions. setting recordings, watch recorded shows,etc.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) Its not the same thing as Directv ans cable companies giving you access to certain channels by logging in our going to websites by logging in. You literally get every single channel from home anywhere as long as you have wifi or wired net. My cousin has a Slingbox hooked to his Directv receiver. Actually I mean hopper.....duhhhh Directv has the Genie. The Hopper has the integrated Slingbox...and thats hats the one cool thing about the Hopper not having to shell out the extra cash for a seaparate slingbox since its integrated with the Hopper
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:28 PM) Slingboxes are nice just not cheap
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:50 PM) :thud:
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) I did away with paying over a hundred bucks a month. My DTV bill was crazy and even after I lowered my package to the minimum I was still paying way too much for something we really didn't use much
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i do NetFlix and Sling TV.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i was doing Hulu too but cancelled it
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) I have $30 a month into my tv now. Locals with an HD antenna
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:46 PM) Word Hd antenna is real nice when you live close to a city. Here in nola everything comes in crisp and clear for a $6 antenna
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 09:15 AM) Now I just need to find a reliable stream for the Jets games.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 02:56 PM) ridley visiting the jets
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:57 PM) New York Jets Re-Hire Terry Bradway
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:58 PM) http://www.ganggreen...e-terry-bradway
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 04:15 PM) I see a lot of mocks giving us shane ray. anyone think its a good pick?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) aprils fools yo ;)

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.
