Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:47 PM) Should have picked Connor Cook.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:56 PM) I guess we are giving up on petty
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) Or giving up on geno
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) I said the rumor was they liked him more then cook
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:35 PM) I know I'm biased, but I've seen them both play. Cook is just better. Hackenberg had one good year. Cook has won more games, played in big games and won them....whatever, its done now so no sense on dwelling on it I guess. I just don't see the appeal in Hackenberg, nice kid, but I always thought he was really overrated. Oh well. I would have taken Kevin Hogan over Hackenberg.
azjetfan Icon : (30 April 2016 - 03:47 PM) From what I have read so far he had a great freshman year under Obrien in a pro style offense. At that point some considered him the next Andrew luck. Then Obrien left and they shifted to a spread under new HC who did poor job bringing in talent. He was also sacked and hit a million times. Might be shell shocked.
Smedsthejet Icon : (01 May 2016 - 06:17 AM) But Chan Gailey runs a spread system - still, I'm comfortable with the Hackenberg pick seeing as Gailey will develop the system to suit his strength... I'm just glad that we passed on Paxton Lynch in the first...we still desperately need Fitz to re-sign though
azjetfan Icon : (01 May 2016 - 07:14 PM) From my understanding the spread in college and the spread in NFL are not the same principals. I really think it was more of a talent issue and getting sacked 80 times in 2 years that did him in. I have no idea if he will make it. I don't follow college ball enough to to know. Theses are just things I read in articles.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 10:24 AM) I'm stoked about getting peake in the 7th round. that was a steal. he was a projected 3rd rounder. wonder what scared teams away
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:05 PM) Jets Invite Terron Beckham(Odell's Cousin) to Minicamp
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:06 PM) Listed as a RB had more bench presses and highest vertical of anyone this year. Hasn't played football since high school and apparently not very smart
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:16 PM) The Jets had Hackenberg as their #2 rated QB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:16 PM) Apparently, they loved Golf and tried to trade up. When that failed, their #2 QB was Hackenberg, they fell in love with his football IQ
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:17 PM) It would be a mistake to start him right away, hes a guy who needs development. He has the talent, and apparently he has good leadership skills and football IQ. His mechanics are off though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (10 May 2016 - 12:25 PM) Is this street thug Ryan Fitzpatrick ever gonna sign?
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:03 PM) Hey guy
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:03 PM) Is everyone excited for the Geno Smith Era?
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) Finally the kid can show us what he can do
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) I know Mr Jet is excited
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) I know Harlem is too
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) GO TEAM!
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 May 2016 - 10:40 AM) from the looks of it, nobody is excited lol
santana Icon : (18 May 2016 - 10:27 PM) I'm excited for geno smith. His jaw will survive the off season.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 May 2016 - 06:26 PM) not true, never know who might punch him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 May 2016 - 05:38 PM) f*** Geno smith

mgjetman Icon : (23 May 2016 - 02:01 PM) Geno really needs to go away. Double f**k Geno.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (23 May 2016 - 02:21 PM) Fitzpatrick said he wants to play for the jets and that he won't retire
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (23 May 2016 - 06:50 PM) This street thug Darron Lee hasn't signed yet

Scott, Star in New York With Jets, Can’t Put Ties to Baltimore Aside
By GREG BISHOP
Published: September 9, 2010

In Baltimore, Scott went from anonymous undrafted free agent to special-teams standout to starting inside linebacker. He played alongside All-Pros like linebacker Ray Lewis and safety Ed Reed, so many stars that Scott said he often felt like the youngest member of the Jackson Five.

Over lunch Wednesday in Manhattan’s West Village, Scott kept coming back to Baltimore, to the city that embraced him, to the fans who identified with him, to the organization that developed him — and will face him Monday night in the Jets’ season opener at New Meadowlands Stadium.

“There’s nothing like your first best friend, your first puppy love, the first time you bought all in,” Scott said. “You’ll never have that same dynamic. You only have one first.”

The game will provide relief for Scott, who is still grappling with a family tragedy that occurred in June. On Father’s Day, as Scott was flying back to New Jersey from Detroit, his hometown, the fiancé of his oldest sister, Cutrice, was murdered there.

Cutrice Scott and Phillip Wade planned to marry. She had found a dress. That day, according to Scott, Wade returned home and found burglars inside. One stabbed him in the neck, and he bled to death in the arms of his 12-year-old son. When his sister reached Scott by cellphone, she could not speak.

Scott knows all about the dangers in Detroit. He once arrived at football practice at Southeastern High School to find a burned-out car in the middle of the field. His cousin was paralyzed in a random shooting at a bar.

“Cutrice is my biggest fan,” Scott said. “This crushed her. I wanted to protect her. I wanted her to have happiness, too. It’s just tough, man. Detroit’s a rough place.”

Scott has since assumed the role in which he feels most comfortable: as his family’s source of strength. When his sister lost her job recently, he paid for her to go back to school to study interior design.

That mentality, Scott said, came from his upbringing and his family, and from the Baltimore Ravens. As Scott prepared to face his former team, he dealt with his sadness using the lessons he learned in Baltimore.

When Scott signed with the Ravens in 2002, he received a $500 signing bonus. That covered his phone bill and little else, but it allowed him entry into what Scott described as the N.F.L.’s version of Stanford for defensive players.

The City of Baltimore, he said, appreciated his story, his path from Southern Illinois to Lewis’s side on the league’s most intimidating defense. His mother, Dorita Adams, remembered the first time Scott ran out of the tunnel as a Ravens starter, how it was so loud that she could not hear his name. Scott blew her a kiss and mouthed, “We did it.” Tears rolled down her cheeks.

On a conference call Thursday, Baltimore Coach John Harbaugh said nobody threw his body into traffic quite the way Scott did.

Scott remains close with several Ravens players, including Edgar Jones, Le’Ron McClain and Terrell Suggs. Scott said he mostly identified with players who are like him: non-Hollywood, unglamorous guys “who got their work done and got rewarded.”

Scott formed organizationwide relationships that endure for all weeks except this one. He befriended Ed Carroll, the Ravens’ longtime equipment manager, who declined an interview request but helped Scott donate weight-lifting equipment to his high school.

Scott also found kinship with O. J. Brigance, a former N.F.L. linebacker who works in player development for the Ravens despite having amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The men played the same position and wore the same number (57). It was Brigance who helped persuade Scott to return to college, where he earned a degree in economics a few years back.

Scott followed Coach Rex Ryan to the Jets before last season. He remains surprised that the Ravens passed over Ryan to hire Harbaugh, but Scott knew instantly that he would follow Ryan anywhere. He wanted their careers connected.

“I’ll ride with Rex, no matter what,” Scott said. “Tell me, who were the Jets before he got here? They were missing an identity. They were middle of the road. He turned this team into the most talked-about team in the N.F.L. All we have to do is back up his statements and, bam, instant success.”

Even after Scott left Baltimore, he remained involved with the city. With the help of Valarie Wideman, a receptionist for the Ravens, Scott continued to feed 400 homeless people on Thanksgiving and hand out Christmas toys and throw parties for children at local roller rinks. He continued to adopt a local elementary school.

Jones took over one of Scott’s events. Running back Ray Rice took over another.

“I miss him so much,” Wideman said of Scott. “Everybody does. You still see people wearing his jersey in the street.”

That works both ways.

“Part of Bart’s heart will always be in Baltimore,” said Adams, his mother.

Part of Scott wanted to stay there, too, and the Ravens offered a comparable financial package. But Lewis was already the cornerstone at linebacker, and Ryan made it clear to Scott that he, not Lewis, was his first choice. “I was always Plan A,” Scott said. “That was the first time in my life I was Plan A.”

Immediately after arriving in New York, Ryan and Scott set about imparting the Ravens’ culture on the Jets.

Now, Scott said, when the teams meet Monday, “they won’t admit it, but I’m sure they miss Rex’s genius on defense.”

“He ran so much of that team,” Scott said. “That defense is still good, but it’s not the same as when Rex was there.”

As much as Scott credits the Ravens, he said he planned to go after them Monday night. The first time he played against Chester Taylor, a former Baltimore teammate, Scott lifted him and slammed him on his neck.

“They know me,” Scott said. “They know the storm is coming.”

EXTRA POINTS

As was widely expected, Rex Ryan named Matt Slauson the starter at left guard. Slauson, who is in his second year, had competed with the rookie Vladimir Ducasse for the position during training camp.

I hear athletes go back to school all the time... but for bullshit degrees that don't require any thought: communication, business administration etc but to go back and earn an econ degree? Bart got a good head on his shoulders. Econ is probably the hardest undergrad to get outside of physics and chem.

Not by a long shot. Pretty much anything involving science is harder than anything involving business. Physics, chemistry, applied mathematics, biology and any type of engineering is MUCH harder than economics. Within business, even finance is more difficult.

I'll give you applied science and engineering but finance? No. We're talking undergrad, not an MBA in financial engineering. Econ is rooted in advanced calculus. Finance touches on calc but is not as indepth. It's basically a combo of econ and accounting (and accounting shouldn't even be a college major).

There may be some calculus involved in econ, but at the undergrad level that would be rudimentary at best. I'll just say that at Penn State, finance is the only major in the business school that requires a 3.3 GPA to get into, because that's the hardest major to maintain good grades in. Every other major was 3.0.

I found undergrad econ very hard because of Calc III. Finance didn't even require Calc II.
