azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:52 AM) He is a good QB and I would love to have him. However IMO our 6 is not good value for us. Not to mention if he hates the idea of LA what is he going to think of NY? Contract situation would have to be worked out prior to trade as well. Extreme long shot to land Rivers. My money says we are more likely to land Brees.
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:53 AM) which is still a very long shot
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:46 AM) he may just hate ownership. LT's comments yesterday was interesting.
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) “I personally don’t think so,” Tomlinson said. “I really think this is a situation where Philip Rivers wants to move on. The reason why I think that and the reason why I feel like that is the Chargers have already approached Philip about doing another contract and he declined it. He doesn’t want anything to do with it; he didn’t even want to talk about another contract with the San Diego Chargers. That tells me that he’s thinking about moving on.”

“You never want to trade your franchise quarterback,” Tomlinson said, “that’s never the case. However, in this situation they might have no choice but to do so because I don’t know if Philip [Rivers] wants to be there anymore. I think he’s lost confidence in the organization. He’s seeing a lot of changes going on and the L.A. thing is valid; him not wanting to go to L.A., that is very valid, I can see that. So no, it doesn’t make sense to move on from Philip because he’s a franchise quarterback and he still has three to four very good years left.”
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) missed the LA line. nvm. guess that is a legit concern.
Mr_Jet Icon : (21 April 2015 - 03:57 PM) He doesn't want to play for a franchise based in Los Angeles, but he'd be okay with playing for one based in New York City?
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 04:28 PM) That's the point we have all been making.

MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:09 PM) Jets open at home against the browns
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

Sanchez: 'I'll Be the One to Fix It'
By Nick Gallo

Posted 5 hours ago

As the rain came down on Sunday afternoon in New Meadowlands Stadium, many would have presumed this game was taking place in Miami during hurricane season. As a result the Dolphins defense seemed to feel at home in the conditions, and Jets quarterback Mark SanchezPosted Image was on the wrong side of that defense throughout the afternoon in the Green & White’s 10-6 loss.

“We squandered an opportunity and there were plenty of chances to win,” Sanchez said. “We just couldn’t capitalize on offense and its unfortunate, especially when your defense plays as well as they did. It starts with the quarterback on offense and these last two weeks I haven’t played like I played earlier this season and I need to fix it and it starts with me. I need to be the guy to turn it around.”

The second-year quarterback was 17-of-44 passing for 216 yards and an interception, bringing his season tally to 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions after starting the year with eight touchdowns and no interceptions. While the conditions certainly made completions hard to come by, part of the problem for the Jets offense may have been that Sanchez had to throw 44 times, because the rushing attack only mustered 87 yards on 31 carries.

With the Jets recording eight more first downs and 149 more total yards than their opponents, most would have presumed a Jets victory from looking at the stat sheet. Unfortunately for head coach Rex Ryan’s crew, two Nick FolkPosted Image field goals were all they could put on the scoreboard.

They did come close, however, to reaching paydirt when typically clutch wide receiver Santonio HolmesPosted Image found himself wide open in the back of the end zone but couldn’t hang on to a perfectly placed pass from Sanchez.

“We all took our turn making mistakes,” Sanchez said. “For every drop, there were probably three or four poorly thrown balls. It falls on the quarterback and I have a lot of work to do. So I’ll be the one to fix it.”

At one point the offense’s struggles nearly prompted Ryan to replace Sanchez with veteran quarterback Mark BrunellPosted Image, but he decided against it. The fifth overall pick in the 2009 draft had a 45.3 passer rating and added four fumbles to his interception (although his teammates recovered three of them).

Sanchez was just as candid as his coach about the potential benching.

“Rex and I have a good relationship,” Sanchez said. “I’m not worried about getting pulled or anything but he has to make those decisions. I’m glad he left me in. I think he feels like I give us the best chance to win and that’s why I’m playing. When I play like I do today, though, I’m sure it’s frustrating to watch, as frustrating as it is to play like that.”

Holmes is a newcomer who has made a huge statistical impact while only playing nine games this season, but the former Super Bowl MVP might be singled out for that unfortunate drop. In the postgame locker room, however, he seemed to have part of the answer to the Jets' offensive problems.

“Converting third downs and getting off the field on third downs,” Holmes said. “If we move the ball on third down, we can put ourselves in better situations to score points. And if you turn the ball over, you can’t win the ballgame by doing that.”

The Jets were 6-for-21 on third-down conversions and 0-for-3 on fourth down during the game, and despite having 81 offensive plays to the Dolphins’ 56 and more than eight minutes more of possession time than Miami, they couldn’t find the end zone. Holmes did finish the game with two catches for 57 yards while fellow veteran receiver Jerricho CotcheryPosted Image led all receivers with five catches for 69 yards. He seemed resolute after the game about the team’s next step.

“We have to get it fixed fast. This is the home stretch in December,” Cotchery said. “We’re talking about making a run and these are the games that you have to win, so whatever it is, we have to get it fixed fast. We’ll go back to work and look at it and go from there.”

While they didn’t get any help Sunday from the Raiders, Titans and Chiefs — all of whom could have helped the Green & White solidify a playoff berth — the Jets didn’t even uphold their end of the bargain. Now 4-3 at home and 5-1 on the road, Ryan’s 9-4 bunch has to travel to play the 10-3 Steelers and 9-4 Bears before finishing the season at home against the now 3-10 Bills.

“It doesn’t get any easier,” Sanchez said. “The good news is that all of this is fixable. The bad news is we have some good teams to play. It’s a good challenge.”
