Jets hire Maccagnan as GM and Bowles as HC. Who's starting the billboard fundraiser?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 04:13 PM) MORE TURNOVER
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 06:05 PM) I'm loving all these additions to the JETS coaching staff
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 06:06 PM) I can't wait to see what Maccagnan does in Free Agency and in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:40 PM) @AlbertBreer
The Jets are hiring Bears nat'l scout Rex Hogan as their director of college scouting. Chicago has released him from his contract
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:40 PM) @AlbertBreer 14m14 minutes ago
The Jets are also hiring Rams scout Brian Heimerdinger to a prominent front-office role. St. Louis let him out of his deal.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:48 PM) Heimerdinger is our director of player personnel now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) That is Mike Heimerdinger's son who used to be our OC in 05
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) hopefully his son isn't as horrible as his pop was at play calling
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 PM) Everyone looks like a bad playcaller when you have no QB and have no talent
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:18 PM) When Heimerdinger was our OC it was when we had a ton of injuries on offense, were down to our 4th or 5th string QB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:42 PM) FIRE HOGAN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:42 PM) FIRE HEIMERDINGER
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:47 PM) STFU Harlem you are f***ing getting real annoying with this FIRE bullshit
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 09:13 PM) I thought you didn't pay attention to me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 09:14 PM) You aaaaaare the wind beneath my wiiiiiiiiiings
a1elbow2.0 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 09:33 PM) I wonder if any possible new members come here, see no new posts for days and these about box conversations and wonder how the f*** this site is operational
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 January 2015 - 12:22 AM) Would u rather FIRE EVERYONE or SUCK FOR THE DUCK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 January 2015 - 05:20 PM) Looks like we are having a blizzard the next 2 days over here.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 January 2015 - 06:50 PM) My boss still said to come in lol
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 January 2015 - 06:50 PM) Possibility for midday dismissal though
Chadforpresi... Icon : (25 January 2015 - 09:52 PM) FIRE HARLEM
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 January 2015 - 01:11 AM) FIRE YOU
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 12:07 PM) FIRE NYJETSFAN.COM
azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 05:36 PM) this site has become dismal.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:47 PM) Thanks Obama.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:49 PM) But really for all of you complaining about the site. What is there to talk about? We have a new GM and HC that we don't know how good or bad they'll be yet. So there really isn't much to talk about with the draft still months away.
azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 09:59 PM) Even I can't blame Obama :drinks:
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) It could be worse
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) we could be Phinzrage
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:43 PM) We got nothing to talk about
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 09:43 AM) HIRE MR JET
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:17 AM) There are some good OGs available in FA, we have to sign one
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Willie Colon was rated as one of the worst in football last season. So was Winters. Oday shows promise
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Orlando Franklin, Mike Iupati, Clint Boling. Should sign one
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 12:34 PM) Franklin or Iupati would be great
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:46 PM) hey reg how did you make out in this storm?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:47 PM) we got slammed with snow but the wind didn't knock out our power so I made out pretty unscathed here in RI
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 January 2015 - 01:14 PM) What sucks is that the NFL isn't going to throw the book at those CHEATS even though they may be found GUILTY
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 January 2015 - 08:54 PM) This place is a GHOST TOWN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:24 AM) Nothing really to talk about in the offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:20 PM) Rex bashed Idzik in a interview today lol
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:21 PM) Says Woody didn't want to fire him but had to because of 4 wins. That Idzik had hidden agendas and a plan that never worked.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:26 PM) I expect FA is going to be busy for us, I think public pressure forces them to make a splash because Maccagnan has to prove hes no Idzik and lose out on most FAs. We also have a lot of holes and could fix some with signings

[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.
