Jetsfan0099 Icon : (23 January 2015 - 09:21 PM) Bad hire, the 49ers are seriously downgrading in coach. Going from Harbuagh to Tomsula, now Fangio to Mangini
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (23 January 2015 - 10:06 PM) Lol wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 AM) I hate when people say mangini built our team, I didn't know he was gm. Tannenbaum was good at making moves

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

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.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:17 AM) There are some good OGs available in FA, we have to sign one
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:18 AM) Willie Colon was rated as one of the worst in football last season. So was Winters. Oday shows promise
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:18 AM) Orlando Franklin, Mike Iupati, Clint Boling. Should sign one
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:34 PM) Franklin or Iupati would be great
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:46 PM) hey reg how did you make out in this storm?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 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

Thank you Mr. Schlereth. I hope Goodell was listening. The NFL world needed to hear this. Paul Tagliabue would have never let this happen. Since Goodell took over it`s been one thing after another. He`s trying to change over a 100 years worth of how the game has been played, all in a couple years.

I`m so pissed off with all these rule changes because you know the zebras are going to be letting the laundry fly a ton.

The NFL didn't change any rules just now. Just increased the penalties. the game was not played like it is now 50 or 100 years ago. Tackling wasn;t always done with the helmet.

It`s been a constant power struggle. Signs of changing times. Schlereth makes great points. The NFL is a great league and football is the best sport. Everyone loves it and people that played or have played knew what they were getting into when then buckle the chin straps. Why should 1 man tear all that down because of 1 weekend.

Maybe you missed this. http://www.nfl.com/v...2/Player-safety

There is no way for the league to govern this. It is nothing but downhill from here. The NFL has done more over the last 5 years then Tagliabue done in 20 years (Im reaching but you get the idea). Since Goodell has taken the reigns it`s progressively gotten worse.

It`s human instinct to lower into a player ( IE: Rugby). The NFL can`t have it both ways. They can`t market violence and big hits yet suspend and penalize players 75,000 dollars at the same time. It`s disgusting and Goodell is rubbing a lot people the wrong way. I agree with malicious hits. Hits that can be avoided. EVEN OFFENSIVE PLAYERS ARE AGAINST IT. If that doesn`t tell you somethings wrong then nothing will. This benefits offensive players and they don`t even want it.

It`s all ready bad enough.

- You can`t hit the QB outside of the `strike zone`
- You can lead with the helmet,shoulder or forearm (they are going to throw flags at nauseam now)
- devistating hits will get flagged whether their Illegal or not
- suspensions as well as fines are now part of the equation
- You can`t launch into a player ( Ray Lewis launched into Dustin Keller. That`s a legal hit)
- You can`t slam another person into the ground
- You can`t fall or drive a person into the ground

It was already bad enough and now their going to raise the level of how their enforce this.

No excuses.

EVERY sport periodically changes to make it safer for the participants. Should they take out the helmets all together? There's some who argue the helmet has made the sport more dangerous anyways.

There still can be big hits, and they will still still be glorified. The NFL is just trying to avoid the big hits that more often result in serious injury.

There's also a legal component to it. The NFL now knows what type of injury can result from certain types of hits and what situations make it more likely the injuries will occur (the wedge, leading with the helmet, etc.). That opens them up to liability should they choose to do nothing about it.

That is what this is all about presently because the league is negligent in this regard as for not getting the concussions down so the CBA is coming and they have a great case . so the NFL is passing the buck by fine's to help off set the cost that they need to help pay for health care for all ex players. this is part of it. I have expressed my self since goodell the communist Zcar got into office if you all recall i said they are but slaves to the masters.Goodell and the competition committee and the owners are responsibly for the product they put on the filed and television. at the expense to the fans and the players . Since this is a business and we are under corporate rule we will loose in the end.

How many more ex players will get on board with this ? its time to strike against these elitists because its all about the money and they can not change their ways unless they are forced to submit by force . you see this is real life in a microcosm literally . The pharaoh rules over his subjects. if someone in a leadership role shows up to save the day it will a farce and it will be business as usual. the solution is this needs to go back to being a sport .

You mean czar? How is this communist? Do you know what communism is?

Slave to the masters? Please. How many slaves got paid $100 million? I'll give you a clue, 10 less than 10.

That was a whole lot of historical examples for none of them to makes sense.

The fines aren't offsetting anything for the NFL. They're to serve as deterrents for breaking the rules. Roger Goodell/the NFL don't pocket the fine money.

Knowing what I know now about the dangers of football in terms of head injuries and brain damage...I'll never let my kid (if I ever have any) play the sport. I love football, its a fun game to watch, but its a violent sport for crazy people. And yes I've done it too. I was an OL, luckily I never had to take or dish out any big hits. Just no way will I allow my future son to jeopardize his life for a sport.

There's plenty of other sports like baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis that he can play.
