Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 09:56 PM) I'm excited for the new coaching staff
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 09:56 PM) Rex wsa fun, but he was too much with the defense instead of the entire football team
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2015 - 09:57 PM) also he didn't always hold players accountable. I think Bowles will make the team more disciplined.
santana Icon : (17 April 2015 - 02:50 AM) I don't have any faith in bowles
azjetfan Icon : (17 April 2015 - 08:15 AM) “San Diego Chargers will ultimately make a deal with the Tennessee Titans for the number two overall pick. As part of that trade, the Chargers will send the number 17 overall pick and Philip Rivers, just as a start, for the number two pick.”
azjetfan Icon : (17 April 2015 - 08:15 AM) Damn... Who called it? This guy.
azjetfan Icon : (17 April 2015 - 08:16 AM) http://national.sunt...s-mariota-trade
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 April 2015 - 10:13 AM) So we would now lose out on maroita and rivers
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 April 2015 - 10:13 AM) Ain't that super
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 01:39 PM) do we make a trade for AP?
santana Icon : (17 April 2015 - 02:41 PM) I believe the rivers stuff is all speculation
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 03:38 PM) So a top ten qb and the 17th pick for the 2nd overall as a start? Makes sense
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 03:39 PM) So Many smokescreens this time of year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 04:08 PM) only 2 more weeks before we find out. draft day will be exciting
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 04:09 PM) my money is we'll take a pass rushing OLB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 April 2015 - 08:08 PM) Yup, unless they trade up.
azjetfan Icon : (18 April 2015 - 07:36 PM) Just spent two w
azjetfan Icon : (18 April 2015 - 07:36 PM) hours in a fitting booth for my new irons.
azjetfan Icon : (18 April 2015 - 07:37 PM) going with Ping G25
azjetfan Icon : (18 April 2015 - 07:37 PM) 4-pw
santana Icon : (19 April 2015 - 02:36 AM) Nice
santana Icon : (19 April 2015 - 02:38 AM) My mizunos are still in Va I need to fly them down. Tired of borrowing clubs
azjetfan Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:13 AM) I tried the Mizunos
azjetfan Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:13 AM) they didn't have the spin like the pings.
azjetfan Icon : (19 April 2015 - 09:51 AM) I did hit the further though
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 April 2015 - 10:27 AM) Rex putting a hit out on Jace Amaro
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 April 2015 - 11:49 AM) SUCK FOR THE DUCK
santana Icon : (19 April 2015 - 06:31 PM) Eagles sign Tebow to a 1 year deal
santana Icon : (19 April 2015 - 06:31 PM) what in the world chip kelly
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:13 PM) Sanchez must be banging his head against the wall screaming NOT AGAIN NOT AGAIN
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:46 PM) Chip Kelly is a assclown for making such weird boneheaded decisions
ganggreen2003 Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:46 PM) Iggles in 2015 0-16 write it down
santana Icon : (19 April 2015 - 08:51 PM) Well I doubt tebow makes the roster
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 April 2015 - 10:17 PM) THE TEBOW!!!!!
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 09:03 AM) Tim Tebow leave Sanchez Alone!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 AM) Rex was talking shit about Amaro saying they lacked accountability last season, now Colon has come out saying the same thing
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 AM) Todd Bowles is emphasizing accountability with the team
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 05:53 PM) Regular season schedule comes out tomorrow night! All I can say is WOOOOOOOOOOO
Chaos Icon : (Today, 07:47 AM) What is Rivers' trade value realistically? Assuming he does want out, he is a 33 year old franchise QB in the last year of his contract with a $17.5M cap hit. Am I wrong for thinking that he won't net a first in this years draft?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:29 AM) 33 isn't that old for a QB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:29 AM) still a top 10 QB
Chaos Icon : (Today, 08:35 AM) True. He also has an injury history but he's always played through that.
Chaos Icon : (Today, 08:36 AM) Jets traded Revis for the 13th overall and a conditional 4th. I'm just not sure Rivers would net 1st rounder with that contract uncertainty.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:57 AM) GET RIVERS
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:59 AM) It's going to cost us 6 because we are going to have to outbid a bunch of teams

Xbox addict 'dies from blood clot'


The family of a budding computer programmer have on Saturday launched a campaign to raise awareness about the health risks of playing online computer games after their son died following a marathon session on his Xbox.
A post-mortem revealed that 20-year-old Chris Staniforth -- who was offered a place to study Game Design at Leicester University -- was killed by a pulmonary embolism, which can occur if someone sits in the same position for several hours.

Deep vein thrombosis normally affects passengers on long-haul flights, but medical experts fear youngsters who spend hours glued to their consoles might also be at risk and have urged them to take regular breaks.
Professor Brian Colvin -- an expert on blood-related conditions -- said it was "unhealthy" for youngsters to spend long periods in front of their consoles.
"There's anxiety about obesity and children not doing anything other than looking at computer screens," he told The Sun.
David Staniforth has now launched a campaign to warn other parents of the dangers.
"Games are fun and once you've started playing it's hard to stop.
"Kids all over the country are playing these games for long periods - they don't realise it could kill them," he told The Sun.
A coroner's court in Sheffield was told how the youngster -- who had no underlying medical conditions -- was complaining of a low heart rate before collapsing outside a Jobcentre.
Staniforth's distraught father said his son would spend up to 12 hours playing on his Xbox.
"He got sucked in playing Halo online against people from all over the world."
Online computer games are extremely popular as thousands interact in shared science fiction worlds.
Reports of gamers collapsing after spending 15 hours in front of video games are fairly common throughout Asia.
In 2005, a South Korean gamer died after playing online games for three days without taking a break.
Microsoft -- which manufactures the Xbox -- said it "recommend gamers take breaks to exercise as well as make time for other pursuits."
Fifteen years ago after an especially disappointing loss to Miami, Esiason, then the Jets' quarterback, was making the seven-mile drive from the Meadowlands back to Manhattan.
While he was slogging through stop-and-go traffic at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, the car next to him was violently rear-ended. The quarterback threw his car into park, hopped out and ran to the woman whose car had been hit. She was wearing, of all things, an Esiason jersey, and was utterly shocked when he tapped on her window to check on her.
"Are you OK?" he said, trying to keep calm. "Are you OK?"
"Boomer? Is that you?" she asked the Good Samaritan, sounding disoriented. "I think I'm OK, but . ... "
But what?
"But you guys sucked."
Welcome to the New York Jets, Tim Tebow.

That is just crazy!! I've heard of some guys from Japan and Korea fainting and some have even died playing online computer games like World of warcarft and such. It just blows your mind.

If you abused ANYTHING in life it can have an I'll effect. Moderation is really a rule everyone should live by.
