@DWAZ73 : One other thing: Idzik now has landed arguably No. 1 QB, RB and WR in free agency this offseason despite deliberate approach. #Jets
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 02:48 PM) Jordan was #34 with the Jets.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:03 PM) Tanaka is looking like a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) Jets added Vick, Chris Johnson, and Eric Decker to the offense.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) And this draft is loaded at the offensive skill positions
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) Hopefully we can get anohter starting WR and starting TE in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:05 PM) Our offense could be much better than last year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:05 PM) can't get much worse than what it's been the last 2 years
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 03:22 PM) Very cool
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:24 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:32 PM) still need another WR
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:33 PM) so i bet powell barely gets any touches this year and goodson gets cut
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 03:34 PM) Goodson is as good as gone.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 03:34 PM) With all his legal issues and coming off injury he is done. Possibly even in the NFL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:39 PM) Powell is average anyways.
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 03:39 PM) @ProFootballTalk 5m

Per source, Chris Johnson's two-year deal has a base value of $8 million, with another $1 million available in incentives based on yardage.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:40 PM) He does a lot of things well, but isn't talented enough. Johnson has breakaway ability still and Ivory is man beast running the football
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:41 PM) We will get another WR in the draft. Even in round 2 you can get a starting WR
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:09 PM) I am still standing by my CB in the first round and WR in the second prediction
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 05:19 PM) The title race is bale
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:34 PM) Sidney rice coming in for a visit
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:49 PM) I think the Jets are getting themselves ready to draft best player available
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:49 PM) Last year they stuck to their board
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) if they sign him I think that means they look to take a CB round 1
2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:32 PM) “@AdamSchefter: RB Chris Johnson's 2-year deal with Jets has a team option in it for year two. Jets have option to pick up year two at $4M in February 2015.”
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:51 PM) @AlbertBreer 2m
Sidney Rice has agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a one-year deal, per source.
Expand
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:55 PM) There is really only 2 CBs worth taking at 18
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:56 PM) I rather get a offensive playmaker
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 PM) LaMont Jordan was 34
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 PM) liar
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) He wore #34 when he played for the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) I should know I met him at an event in his last year with the JETS before he went to Oakland
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) GFYS 0099 you shit talker
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:06 PM) http://www.nydailyne...entry-1.1758342
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:06 PM) there's no reason we can't have someone off this site on that list too
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 PM) Rice resigned with Seattle
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 PM) did you scare him into going to Oakland?
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 08:18 PM) unfortunately those sites are too much bigger than our
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 PM) WOOOO
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:01 PM) I'm sure it's possible but this isn't a blog site as much as its a login and yell about the jets site
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:01 PM) WOO

[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.
