Jets vs Chiefs Sunday 4:30est
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:26 AM) The offensive line stepped off after Hughes got hurt for however long he was out. I don't blame J. Marsh for that fumble because that was just a hell of a play. Imo Fitz had a career best game even with only 1 td passing. Never seen him so accurate. So yeah when I meant ugly I meant dline penetration and the 1st two drives ending up in fieldgoals
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:30 AM) But 31 points given up passing by the defense passing was bad. It wasn't just 2 long bombs and that defensive touchdown leading to 21 points. 3q1 against a bad team was terrible for the defense. Without the offense putting up 37 the Jets,would have lost so yeah I consider it an ugly start on both ends
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:32 AM) I'm glad like everyone else that the Jets won. Especially with getting with by the Bills multiple times it was nice revenge.
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:34 AM) Just saying that the Bills look like a bad team this year and the Jets have to face a lot of teams that are probably playoff bound again so yes there is a lot of concern
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 11:39 AM) fitz look good and lets not forget the 50+ yarder to decker that was called back on a BS holding penalty. plus if you rewatch it, the jets d-line was getting held like crazy and never got calls. I seen McLendon, williams, and wilk all complaining about it
azjetfan Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:32 PM) I think the game plan for the D was to keep Taylor in the pocker
azjetfan Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:33 PM) They didn't want him running around when they only rushed 3-4 guts
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:37 PM) bills fired their OC today after the loss yesterday lol
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:38 PM) yeah we didn't really rush, we just tried to keep contain on the outside and collapse the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:38 PM) on the salas TD, one of our LBers went for the sack and broke contain and pryor got away and made the play
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:39 PM) when we did rush which was rare, we had a spy
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 11:11 PM) As far as the Bills firing the oc I'm not sure I agree with it with Watkins having major foot problem with a steel rod in his surgically repaired foot but I dont follow the Bills so cant really say. I do think they need to get rid of Rob Ryan though. He had a decent year with the Browns then was terrible with the Cowboys and Saints. He isn't half the DC that Rex is. I still think Rex can be a good head coach withe the right coaches and roster but Rob Ryan isn't the answer. But if Rex wants to ruin his chance of staying a head coach by keeping his brother on the coaching staff like he ruined his head coaching job keeping Sanchez as a starter then that's his stupidity
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 September 2016 - 12:20 AM) The A Football Life of Curtis Martin is a MUST WATCH!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 September 2016 - 02:03 PM) They got rid of their OC after their defense was ripped apart
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:03 PM) Well hell that makes even less sense. The defense gets ripped apart so let's get rid of the oc instead of the dc.they didn't have much of a run game but a lot of passes yards. If they wanted to blame anyone for nearly 40 points against them it was their defense. But guess Rex used the ocean as the scale goat instead of his brother
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:04 PM) Oc not ocean. Damn Auto correct on phone
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:04 PM) And scape goatee
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:05 PM) Lol still can't get it right
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:13 PM) Not sure about anyone else but I'm extremely interested in the 49r/ Panther game at 1pm. Just want to see if the 49rs are actually good this year or if the Rams have become one of the worst teams in the league this year
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:16 PM) If the Rams have regressed that much then all the Todd Gurley owners in fantasy will likely have low points from him all year. Might even be worth trying to trade him early if they look just as bad this week before his stock drops
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:26 PM) I drafted him last year and also had David Johnson, Chris Johnson, Roetlesburger, Romo, Palmer, Barnage,, .....my whole team was stacked with starters. Entire team wasc stacked with starters. Even bench. Made tge Superbowl but did have a rough start at behinning of season when Romo and Roethlisberger wentvdown at the start of season also lost amazing starting rb and wr all within the 1st 4 games but worked the waivers really well..shut out until garbage time by a team that was terrible last year
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:28 PM) Last part meant Rams were shut out entire game even in garbage time against 49r backups
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:29 PM) Sorry about typos. Hard to type on small phone screen
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:00 PM) This is why I'm glad Rex is gone. Fire the OC after the D gives up 500 yards??
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:01 PM) UPDATE THE UPDATE!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:25 PM) Yep Rex isn't a bad coach but he needs to have all player and coach decisions as far as firing and hiring taken out of his hands. His problem is he doesn't know to separate the job from loyalty to players and is unable to let underperforming players go
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:27 PM) He was great as a DC because he wasn't in charge of roster and firing decisions. He will never make it as a good head coach until he can get rid of loyalty and run a team like any boss runs a business.
azjetfan Icon : (17 September 2016 - 07:16 PM) I loved Rex as a person. But he is severely handicapped in his skill set as a HC. He has not adapted and will not adapt. That's why he isn't here and will be fired from Buffalo.
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:05 AM) It's all guessing and I will like likely stick with my two starters that are injured and playing but D.Thomas looks like he is still in a lot of pain and Stewart is still in the locker room getting ankle treatment so both could be on a snap count
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:06 AM) I have good wr's on bench and good rb's on bench but they have bad matchups. Do t trust Diggs against Greenbay or Doug Martin against Arizona both on bench
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:08 AM) If I made changes I have Crabtree for Oakland Aagainst Atlanta and Abdullah for Detroit against 49rs as my two options I would choose if I made any changes
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:10 AM) Actually have it backwards with my running back teams
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:12 AM) Detroit vs Titans who I believe has a legit defense. Panthers have a better team but the ankle for Stewart and both the Titans and 49rs are ranked #1 against the run. Not a believer in the 49rs defensesthough
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:13 AM) Believe the Rams oline just sucks
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:15 AM) Abdullah splits carries but he did get 17 last week and also catches a lot of passes and has a better qb so could exploit the Titans still
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:16 AM) Will most likely do my own thing anyway just looking for input from those that actually study in fantasy if anyone feels like offering their opinions. If not it's cool too. Thanks
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:18 AM) If not for the injuries to the two players I'd keep them in for sure but all it takes for Thomas is a hit to the hip and a tackle by the ankle for Stewart if they aren't on a snap count already or if pain doesn't get to them.
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 12:45 PM) Well looks like leaving in Stewart was,a,bad move in locker room
MikeGangGree... Icon : (18 September 2016 - 04:54 PM) Good news! Dolphins suck
santana Icon : (19 September 2016 - 08:08 AM) Thanks professor
Jetsfan115 Icon : (23 September 2016 - 03:55 PM) updated roster. FB howsare released, TE bowman added to roster

Man Robs Bank to Get Medical Care in Jail
By Zachary Roth

http://news.yahoo.co...al-care-in-jail

Some people who need medical care but can't afford it go to the emergency room. Others just hope they'll get better. James Richard Verone robbed a bank.

Earlier this month, Verone (pictured), a 59-year-old convenience store clerk, walked into a Gaston, N.C., bank and handed the cashier a note demanding $1 and medical attention. Then he waited calmly for police to show up.

He's now in jail and has an appointment with a doctor this week.

Verone's problems started when he lost the job he'd held for 17 years as a Coca Cola deliveryman, amid the economic downturn. He found new work driving a truck, but it didn't last. Eventually, he took a part-time position at the convenience store.

But Verone's body wasn't up to it. The bending and lifting made his back ache. He had problems with his left foot, making him limp. He also suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis.

Then he noticed a protrusion on his chest. "The pain was beyond the tolerance that I could accept," Verone told the Gaston Gazette. "I kind of hit a brick wall with everything."

Verone knew he needed help--and he didn't want to be a burden on his sister and brothers. He applied for food stamps, but they weren't enough either.
So he hatched a plan. On June 9, he woke up, showered, ironed his shirt. He mailed a letter to the Gazette, listing the return address as the Gaston
County Jail.

"When you receive this a bank robbery will have been committed by me," Verone wrote in the letter. "This robbery is being committed by me for one dollar. I am of sound mind but not so much sound body."

Then Verone hailed a cab to take him to the RBC Bank. Inside, he handed the teller his $1 robbery demand.

"I didn't have any fears," said Verone. "I told the teller that I would sit over here and wait for police."

The teller was so frightened that she had to be taken to the hospital to be checked out. Verone, meanwhile, was taken to jail, just as he'd planned it.

Because he only asked for $1, Verone was charged with larceny, not bank robbery. But he said that if his punishment isn't severe enough, he plans to tell the judge that he'll do it again. His $100,000 bond has been reduced to $2,000, but he says he doesn't plan to pay it.

In jail, Verone said he skips dinner to avoid too much contact with the other inmates. He's already seen some nurses and is scheduled to see a doctor on Friday. He said he's hoping to receive back and foot surgery, and get the protrusion on his chest treated. Then he plans to spend a few years in jail, before getting out in time to collect Social Security and move to the beach.

Verone also presented the view that if the United States had a health-care system which offered people more government support, he wouldn't have had to make the choice he did.

"If you don't have your health you don't have anything," Verone said.

The Affordable Care Act, President Obama's health-care overhaul passed by Congress last year, was designed to make it easier for Americans in situations like Verone's to get health insurance. But most of its provisions don't go into effect until 2014.

As it is, Verone said he thinks he chose the best of a bunch of bad options. "I picked jail."

What's even more sad is every member of congress has health care coverage and it's guys like James Verone who's taxes paid for their coverage. We can pay for their's but we can't pay for each other's? We need to wake up.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

Yep and what pisses me off is our neighbors to the north have free health care coverage for all their citizens.

I just don't understand why Americans don't realize that the more healthier we all are the more productive workforce we will have. I'd be perfectly willing to pay a little more in taxes so that my neighbor can go to the doctor when he is sick or injured. The faster he gets better the faster he gets back to work (and becomes a taxpayer again).

I read this article yesterday on Yahoo. My favorite part is that the dude is quoted as saying that he plans to spend a few years in jail so by the time he gets out, he's eligible for social security. That's hardcore.

I just don't think it's fair to people who lead healthy lifestyles to have to pay for the health care of those who don't.

I mean, there's already people who want to regulate what your food can be cooked in, or what you can eat at all. What happens when you give your neighbor a financial interest in your health? You think he's gonna want more or less control over your life choices?

I work out and eat fairly well. Am I gonna get tax breaks as opposed to the dumb ass that smokes, drinks an insane amount, can't control what he eats and refuses to exercise?

Great point bro unfortunately the strong take care of the weak. That's how society works and that's what makes Westerns and or modernized societies better for an overall life and why people who were born in less fortunate countries flock over here or to England ect, ect.

It's just the compassion that comes with being human. It's labeled as inhumane to let another man suffer if one as the mind, fortitude and wealth to help someone who doesn't quite have it together. Also, was as being the smartest living organisms on this planet should know how to ration food, drink and moderation and avoid the dangers of heavy smoking and such. However what we make and do inflicts the same people who we make and do things for. Canned food in plastic, beverages loaded with sugar, stored in non biodegratable bottles that pose as a potential health risk to all that consume them and I'm just merely scratching the surface.

If we are going to continually poison, our own people then don't you think we should look after the weaker majority? I think so.

I'm fine with certain instances of contributing to the greater good with the government's gun at my head. We need roads, schools, police, etc. But it's gotta stop somewhere. The social systems we have are abused enough as it is.

If you wanna help your fellow man, that's great. It's a virtuous endeavor and one that I would likely choose as well especially if I'm fortunate enough to be in a position to do so more. I just don;t think it's the place of the government to FORCE people to pay for other people's poor choices so often.

I'd prefer the ability yo help out my friends and family than to be forced to dump money to a bunch of people who will waste it with their piss poor choices.

None of those sugary drinks would exist if there wasn't a demand. I'm all for letting people make their own choices. Ya know, freedom? They just shouldn't be looking for handouts from others when their own choices have consequences.

I hardly ever drink soda. Pretty much the only time is when its pepsi with whiskey in it haha. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't be pissed if the government bans it or taxes it out of my budget. I appreciate having the option of making that choice. I don't want the government (and remember, "government" just means your neighbors) having a huge say in my daily life.

That's fine but the government shouldn't be forcing people to this belief.

To reduce inequity do you take your pay check every week and split it among the first 10 homeless people you find? Even stevens, look at all this achievement. No one can afford a house!

But you see you may be able to afford to eat healthier but not everybody can. When a bag of potato chips costs less than a bag of apples in this country, that's a problem. When a two liter of pop costs less than a half gallon of milk in this country, that's a problem. A family that makes less than $15,000 a year can barely pay their bills let alone buy enough of the foods we're supposed to have daily on the food pyramid (or whatever it is they just changed it to). Plus once the government starts talking about taking the soda machines out of schools and changing the menu to a more nutritious menu that's when certain people start crying about the government trying to control local school districts and those decisions should be left up to the parents in those districts. Then when people start crying about taxes and teacher's salaries and how we need to cut budgets, guess which part of the curriculum in schools is one of the first to go. Physical Education. How are people supposed to learn about the benefits to eating healthy and exercise, if they don't learn it at a young age in school? That's where it starts.


Anyway that's one part of the problem. Not everybody who is sick and needs health care is sick because of poor decisions they've made. How is a person with leukemia at fault for their illness? How is a kid who is too young to have spent a lifetime of eating sugary foods at fault for getting diabetes? How is a person who is badly injured by a drunk driver and needs months of medical care to recover at fault for their injuries? We can all eat healthy and exercise but that still doesn't mean we're unable to get sick or injured. Some health problems can happen because of genetics or just from getting some bad luck.

What is even worse is many people can't even afford go to the doctor for regular checkups. Some health problems can be caught much earlier than they are if a person were able to see a doctor much sooner. If a man with high blood pressure knew about it months (or years) before he has a massive heart attack, don't you think it would be better to make sure that man has coverage earlier rather than later? The cost for a doctor to take that man's blood pressure and give him a prescription for pills to lower his blood pressure will be much less in the long run, than it would be if that same man were rushed to the ER and have to have emergency heart surgery. Because if that man goes to the ER and has no health care coverage, you're still going to be paying for his health care anyway. That checkup would've cost you much less than that ER visit and the weeks of recovery afterwords if he survives. Many of our major health problems could be caught sooner if people were able to see a doctor before it becomes an emergency.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

That's fine but the government shouldn't be forcing people to this belief.

To reduce inequity do you take your pay check every week and split it among the first 10 homeless people you find? Even stevens, look at all this achievement. No one can afford a house!



Catch 22
you shouldn't have to be forced just take it.. TAKE IT WILLINGLY
