santana Icon : (16 December 2014 - 12:49 PM) so do we beat the pats or just let them get the easy win
azjetfan Icon : (16 December 2014 - 01:57 PM) At this point I am all about ruining their chance for home field.

MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 December 2014 - 02:24 PM) O we will win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 December 2014 - 02:24 PM) Rex will end his last game in metlife with a bang
santana Icon : (16 December 2014 - 02:44 PM) bang bang!
azjetfan Icon : (16 December 2014 - 03:25 PM) You know Rex will dial up some crazy packages for Brady. He probably has that D-line all riled up already.
santana Icon : (16 December 2014 - 03:44 PM) Riled up to get Fired up
azjetfan Icon : (16 December 2014 - 04:19 PM) Connor Cook from MI State is projected to go in the middle of the first round.
Mr_Jet Icon : (16 December 2014 - 04:48 PM) Cook is not ready for the NFL.
santana Icon : (16 December 2014 - 04:50 PM) Lol cook??
Mr_Jet Icon : (16 December 2014 - 04:54 PM) I think very highly of Connor Cook. But if he is projected to go in the first round of the 2015 draft, this is going to be a very weak draft.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (16 December 2014 - 05:02 PM) Connor Cook is going back to school..
santana Icon : (16 December 2014 - 05:52 PM) Lol school??
azjetfan Icon : (16 December 2014 - 06:31 PM) I don't know anything about him but he was projected by two different mock drafts to go to the Texans
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 December 2014 - 08:20 PM) Woody Johnson favorited a tweet about firing Idzik lol
jetfan4life12 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:15 AM) woody better fire that ass clown if he wants fans to attend games next season. He messed the whole thing up by hiring a GM without letting him choose the coach. He likely was told no by the top 20 candidates and stuck himself with is dick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 AM) yup, I don't trust Idzik to make good use of our top draft pick or sign quality FAs. Or hire our next HC
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 AM) I want a new GM and HC
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:54 AM) Should I go Vincent Jackson or Jarvis Landry as my WR3?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:13 AM) i'd go landry
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:40 AM) The opposite of what Mr Jet thinks about it.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:03 PM) Top Bantz by 05
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 01:03 PM) http://www.gfycat.co...ousAlaskanhusky
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 02:13 PM) 'Fire Idzik' banner returns for Jets
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:23 PM) jets fans are loony. shoutbox is clear evidence of that.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:28 PM) Nah Jets fans are all level headed individuals
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:40 PM) Zzzzz
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:44 PM) i agree very level headed
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:44 PM) ILL KILL YOU ILL KILL ALL OF YOU I AAM THE TABLE!!!!
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 06:30 PM) @RapSheet: Sources: #Michigan has made another run at Jim Harbaugh after he initially rebuffed the school. U-M has made an offer of 6 years, $48M. Wow.
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 06:33 PM) @AdamSchefter: Stunner from Chicago: Bears starting QB Jimmy Clausen this week, per source.

santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:26 PM) http://cdn.ksk.uprox...ing-650x487.png
santana Icon : (Today, 03:19 PM) holy shit thrilling match up tonight
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 04:13 PM) Does it matter who wins tonight? Draft pick wise for the Jets?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) Probably not. We probably want to draft above the Titans though if that is possible, they are a team that could use a QB. The Jaguars just drafted Blake Bortles, doubt they go first round QB 2 years in a row
santana Icon : (Today, 04:29 PM) so titans win is best win

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.
