santana Icon : (Today, 12:07 PM) lots of nonsense
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:09 PM) Time to watch Giants vs Bills
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:11 PM) 3-0 Giants
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:12 PM) Damn it feels good to be 3-1
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:12 PM) Miami is 1-3. 0-2 in the AFC east with both Ls being homes games
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:12 PM) still have to go to buffalo and New York and Play NE twice
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:20 PM) Now we get back Sheldon Richardson, gonna be fun to watch this DL now
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:21 PM) Richardson is better than Wilkerson IMO
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:21 PM) I agree
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:21 PM) He plays nastier, and his pass rush was becoming a force last season. Looked like Reggie White at times with his club
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:22 PM) I can wait to see a passing down with Wilk Williams and Rich all in
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:22 PM) Hes a special talent, just wish he'd stop being a knuckle head off the field
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:22 PM) cant
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:22 PM) We are adding a impact player back to our DL, that is exciting.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:23 PM) If he can help our rush even more[ I thin k he will big time] just thjink with the DBs we have how good the D can be
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:25 PM) he should help it. Leonard Williams has been impressive as a rookie
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:29 PM) Rex looks gay in blue
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:42 PM) 9-3 Giants
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:44 PM) If you told me in before the season we would be 3-1 after for games and 3-0 in the AFC I would take it.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:51 PM) Miami 0-12 on 3rd downs and 0-4 on 4th downs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 01:02 PM) 16-3 Giants
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 01:04 PM) Bills have
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 01:04 PM) the worst pas D in the NFL
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 01:47 PM) Why is no one watching football???
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 01:47 PM) Am I the only one online right now??
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 01:47 PM) FIRE THE SITE
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:00 PM) i'm watching, but I have to go to work
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 02:20 PM) I have to work overnight tonight... I was suppose to work this morning so I got a guy to switch with me....sucks is I don't want to work overnight but I didn't want to miss my boys
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Rex has the Bills wound so tight that they are losing their composure
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) i don't miss that emotional roller coaster
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 03:14 PM) Wow the bills are horrendous with all these penalties
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 03:14 PM) they are the most penalized team in the NFL
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 03:15 PM) f***ing pathetic
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 03:15 PM) and thanks to the Jints we will be in 2nd place all by ourselves
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:15 PM) Rex still cant manage the clock
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 03:15 PM) now we need to focus on Washington who just beat the pathetic iggles
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:15 PM) Has 3 timeouts left and let 45 secs off the clock for no reason
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:20 PM) Giants won!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 03:20 PM) f*** the bills
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) so glad we got rid of rex
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) I wanted him gone 2 years ago after we fired tannenBUM
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:16 PM) but I think everything has worked out for the best with Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles

Brad Smith: Swiss-Army Knife
By Bassett on Oct 24, 2010, 8:58 am

Mark Cannizzaro wrote a fantastic piece this morning about Brad Smith, and just what he means to the team with quotes from his coaches and teammates. It’s a great article, and here’s one of the leading sections about Mike Westhoff’s trip to recruit Brad Smith when he was at Mizzou.

Mike Westhoff, the Jets’ special teams coordinator, remembers going to Missouri to recruit Smith and working him out at quarterback, receiver, running back, punt and kick returner and even defensive back.

“Everything he did,” Westhoff recalled, “he did exceptionally well.”

Westhoff remembered reporting back to then-head coach Eric Mangini and saying, “Let’s get him. I don’t care where or how, let’s get him.”

The most powerful moment that resonated with Westhoff about that visit to Missouri was his first impression.

“When we got there, it was like the entire athletic department was ready to drop football when that guy was leaving,” Westhoff said.

“They just loved him. This was a guy that just did everything for them.”

In terms of team MVP, Brad has to be right up there in the discussion with all that he does for the team. Whether it be returning kicks, playing kickoff coverage, throwing a block, or running the Seminole package (should it not be renamed the Tiger now that Leon is no longer here?!), he does it all well. He adds that extra weapon on offense, which arguably makes things a little easier for Sanchez by taking away some of the pressure on our young QB's shoulders. The ironic thing is though that Smith's pass catching ability is probably his biggest weakness!
He's a great player to have on the team and crucially is somebody willing to do whatever they're asked to do without ever complaining. Not every player who was the main man in college would be happy to be asked to do all he does.

anyone notice defensive back ? I am not that crazy after all. he should be back there in certain situations if we need points from the defnse when we are loosing.or if they have to many tall WR's.

I like watching Brad Smith. He just has a knack for making a guy or two miss and getting a nice play.
