ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6
MikeGangGree... Icon : (24 April 2015 - 09:40 PM) TEH RANGERS
santana Icon : (24 April 2015 - 11:32 PM) TEH WIZ
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:57 AM) Teh Suarez
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) Vic Beasley is all speed. No moves, no power. Straight up the field. Could have some big games, then nothing in the next
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) If we don't get Mariota, we should be looking at Schreff or trading down, IMO.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) A lot of good edge rushers in this draft... I wouldn't want to take Dupree that high.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 AM) Until next time fellas!
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:19 PM) Helloooooooooo

Highly doubt he retires....I think this is just Harrison's extreme response to express his discontent with the seemingly dramatic response by the NFL this week....

Harrison's not retiring. He's just unhappy with the 75,000 fine he got.

Massaquoi's agent is a little ridiculous though saying that 75K fine wasn't enough. His client knows that every time he steps onto the field he's taking a risk of taking a hard hit. I dont care if Harrison's made millions or not. 75 grand isnt chump change after considering that harrison's agent and the government still have to take their cut as well as the players union out of his salary.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

Man Mike Mayock is the man!! Posted Image

The panel on NFL are DEAD ON!.. how many years has it been since there have been tackling in football? You can't change it Goodell. You simply CANNOT!

Now like the panal says. Enforce the rules that are ALEADY IN PLACE. Dunta Robinsons hit was as clean as hit as you'll see. Was is vicious? yes... however he didn't launch, nor did he go for the head of DeSean. It was a hit across the middle of the field. I'm sorry, I'm all for safety as well but Jesus Christ, we can't let this game get out of hand. We already have screwed up the P.I calls. P.I calls shouldn't be from the spot of the foul. It should be a 15 yard penalty. Not a 50 or 60 yard penalty. Anyways Goodell is going to f*ck this up. The league is going to f*ck this up. I know it.

Nothing we can do but I might have to write a letter to Goodell or the league office. I'm not going to be able to stand it if football starts being called like Basketball games.Posted Image

They over-react to the numbers only. the last 3 years the NFL averaged 27 concussions total reported per year, they're year there at 47 already. But you can't blame the defense for getting bigger and faster. they are already at a disadvantage. I'm ok with fines and suspensions for players who are PURPOSELY spearing players or aiming for the head and trying to injure other players (like romanoski used to) but you can't flag or suspend a player who lays down the wood if he keeps it legal. like revis's hit on royal was legal, leonhards hit on royal was legal.

I don't know if this is a bit much, but i personally think that GOODELL IS THE HITLER of the NFL. He seriously is single handedly killing the sport year after year. the act that no one has tried to seriously try to throw him out of power is unbelievable. Well i hope he knows that after he kills the NFL he's good as fucked when it comes to money cause he, along wiht the owners are goin bankrupt.

I think a lot of aggressive players will consider retirement rather than a complete change of playing style.

Knee jerk reactions are becoming a trademark of the pathetically PR conscious Goodell. Two game winning PI calls? Change the rule!Q However, note that in the NY-Den game the PI was blatant since Holmes had the ball hit his hands and only a facemask could stop the catch. In the Hou-KC game it was just the wrong call. In either situation, a fifteen yard penalty isn't the answer.

The issue on PI is when it gets called wrong it hurts the other team big time. The answer isn't to mitigate the possibility of a bad call by lessening the penalty, you'll just end up with DBs throwing guys down deep to break up a play. Refs should get fined and suspended for blown calls at that level. All they are watching for is possession and in bounds. Johnson was way in bound, so the only issue should have been watching his hands. How the ref misses a push when we can see it from camera level above the field is beyond me.

The league is thriving. If you don;t like the way he's running things that's fine, but none of this is true.

Big hits are part of the game, and a big part of what draws fans to the game. But there does need to be balanced, and player safety does need to be considered. I understand that players choose to play the game, and put their bodies on the line. However, the league and officials do arguably owe the players a duty of care. I found the interview on ESPN.com with Mark Schlereth quite disturbing. During his career he put everything on the line and has had 29 surgeries to show for it. But there is a difference between knee injuries and head injuries. Unfortunately Schlereth, and other players may end up in wheelchairs or need a walking aid in the future, but their standard of living is going to be much better than players who have suffered repeat concussions because the symptoms are far less severe than amnesia and potential brain damage.
The onus to me is on players to improve their tackling technique. Revis showed on Sunday you can make a hard hit without it having to be uncontrolled, whereas the shots from Harrison and Robinson were not.

The Robinson hit was violent, but legal. If Jackson wasn't a *beep* that misses time anyway it wouldn't have been a problem. Robinson was running, slowed, put his hands up.

If hard hits that knock out notably fragile players will draw suspensions, I say we load up on wimps so that no one will be willing to touch them.

The Merriweather hit was dirty, the Massaquai his was kind of dirty, but that is it. The call on Leonhard showed that you'll get called for tackling in the modern NFL. I say fire all the defensive players in the league and let the players just play 100-yard pitch and catch.
