ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 09:05 PM) Im proud od the Pac 12. Like everyone else I didnt feel UCLA deserved to be in the tourney. They got owned a good bit in the regular season but only 4 Pac 12 teams made it and 3 have moved on to the 16 so far. If Oregon beats Wisconsin tomorrow all 4 teams will be in the sweet 16.

RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:26 PM) seed?
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25
2JBallar01 Icon : (22 March 2015 - 10:53 PM) @RichCimini: Random contract note: Antonio Cromartie's 4 yr/$32M deal with Jets includes only $7M gtd - $5M base + $2M roster bonus at signing. #nyj

JSOTF Icon : (25 March 2015 - 06:02 AM) So, the question is.......Do I invest to go see the Jets vs Fish in England this season????????
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 March 2015 - 07:10 AM) I'm considering going
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 March 2015 - 07:10 AM) My brother is moving to London next year...so I have a reason to be over there
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 March 2015 - 07:10 AM) This August I should say
Smedsthejet Icon : (25 March 2015 - 02:59 PM) You both should do it...I'll buy the first (overpriced) beers as well! Got my ticket back in January

santana Icon : (25 March 2015 - 09:58 PM) FIRE FIREMAN ED
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 03:58 AM) Well, I now live accros the pond and maybe some of us could meet up there?
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 03:59 AM) Smeds, where did you get your tickets?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:56 AM) Az bitches!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 AM) hahahaha, it isnt European Football!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:37 AM) They havent fucked with a disgruntled, lifelong Jets fan!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 02:49 PM) Got my tickets from Ticketmaster the day they went on general sale
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany

Shonn Greene, RB, N.Y. Jets: No longer Thomas Jones' understudy, Greene gets the bulk of the carries -- and judging from his performance the last five games of 2009 that could be good. In those games he ran for 461 yards (including 304 in the playoffs), averaged 5.5 yards a carry and scored twice. The beauty of the "Ground and Pound" approach was that the Jets didn't have to rely on Greene. They had the AFC's second-leading rusher in Jones and gave him the ball enough that he scored 14 times, tied for fourth-best in the NFL. But Jones is gone, and veteran LaDainian Tomlinson is here ... which means the Jets lean heavily on Greene, now more than ever.


Kyle Wilson, CB, N.Y. Jets: Just my opinion, but Joe Haden wasn't the best cover corner in the draft; Wilson was. So he lasts until the 29th pick, where the Jets take him, and the rich just got richer. The club that last season had the league's best pass defense but not enough defensive backs to cover Indianapolis' receivers just added Wilson and Antonio Cromartie. Now you know why Rex Ryan is so sure he's going the extra mile this season. If you're in the same division with Tom Brady you better have quality cornerbacks, and Wilson fits the description. Consider him a steal at the 29th spot.


Mark Sanchez, QB, N.Y. Jets: He needs time to develop, but there's not much time when your head coach proclaims your team the next Super Bowl champion. Sanchez was all over the place last season, which you expect from a rookie, but he showed me something in the playoffs -- particularly the conference championship loss to Indianapolis. He was poised and effective in a difficult environment. Now he must take a giant step forward to satisfy season ticket holders expecting the club to go to the top, and, frankly, I'm just not sure he's ready.


LaDainian Tomlinson, RB, N.Y. Jets: I'll be honest: I don't think L.T. has much gas left in the tank, but teammates tell me I'm wrong. So do his preseason numbers. But this is September, fellas. Wait until we get to November and December, and Tomlinson's 31-year-old legs start aching and stop moving. At least, that's my expectation. I saw too much of him last season to believe he has much left. He had career low numbers, with the most compelling a 3.3 yards-per-carry average. An encore performance will have Monday morning quarterbacks wondering why letting Thomas Jones walk was such a good idea.


Antonio Cromartie, CB, N.Y. Jets: OK, I get it. He whiffed on Shonn Greene's touchdown run in last season's playoffs. But, as Rex Ryan said, the Jets aren't paying him to tackle; they're paying him to cover receivers. Cromartie is a gifted athlete who has had as much trouble weeding out his personal life as he did tackling Greene, but the Jets hope a change of scenery and a little financial help will keep him focused. If they do, they have themselves a top-shelf cornerback. If they don't, they have an unreliable player who can become a distraction.

Ya ever notice how little these "insiders" and "beat writers" acutally know? They make all sorts of "factual" claims, where they really have no idea what they're talking about.

One of the things I've loved the most about Hard Knock's is getting a REAL inside scoop and finding out how wrong these beat guys are most of the time.

Like when Greg Buttle said during one of the preseason games that Mike Westhoff loves David Clowney...right after the Hard Knock's episode where Westhoff was saying that he basically sucks. The play-by-play guy...not sure who it was...had to say, "Wait a minute...Westhoff loves him?"

This article doesn't say anything we haven't been hearing for months. I'd really like to hear some real analysis of Vernon Gholston, Jamall Westerman, Donovan Warren, Chauncey Washington, etc. other than the obligatory "the coaches like what they see from him" or "he's looked good in the preseason"

PS - Does anyone read the Jets blog on ESPNNY by Rich Cimini? Anyone else get the feeling that guy really hates the Jets? He's impossibly negative in every way.
