ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 September 2015 - 04:06 PM) the only positive is that the loss was to a NON conference team
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 September 2015 - 04:06 PM) but that was such a hard game to watch with the O being non-existent for 3/4 of the game
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 September 2015 - 04:07 PM) and WTF was Marshall thinking when he pitched it
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 September 2015 - 06:22 PM) Time to SQUISH THE FISH in the Land of Fish 'n Chips next Sunday
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 September 2015 - 06:23 PM) Dolphins got their teeth knocked in by Buffalo
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 September 2015 - 06:32 PM) Is everyone so embarrassed with this Loss that they aren't bothering logging on?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 September 2015 - 06:32 PM) Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (27 September 2015 - 07:05 PM) f*** US
MikeGangGree... Icon : (27 September 2015 - 07:23 PM) AHHHHHHH the jets are 1-4 when I go see them but the Giants are 4-0 when I see them!!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (27 September 2015 - 07:23 PM) why of why!!!!!!!
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 September 2015 - 11:07 AM) i was too pissed after the game.
azjetfan Icon : (28 September 2015 - 01:53 PM) I'm not to worried after one loss. The Eagles were mere prepared and just out performed us. They are not the better team. Hopefully this can be a wake up call for us going to play the Phinz.
azjetfan Icon : (28 September 2015 - 01:54 PM) I still see us as a 9-10 win team. Us making the playoffs will be dependent on how the wild card shoes up. Pats look amazing so far. Better than last year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 September 2015 - 02:17 PM) yeah i think we are still a playoff team. the AFC isn't looking too strong. the pats look by far the best in the NFL bout outside of them, indy, denver, bal, all don't look good.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 September 2015 - 02:17 PM) pitt lost ben, could cost them the divison
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 September 2015 - 02:18 PM) right now it's den, indy, cincy, and NE to take the divisons and we'll be fighting for WC spots with pitt, oak, buff, and KC. I don't think Oak is good enough to win more then 7 games so us, buff, pitt and KC will be fighting for 2 spots IMO
ROBJETS Icon : (28 September 2015 - 02:28 PM) Steelers could be out with the qb injury. I dont expect him back anytime soon. he is tough though so who knows maybe they will shoot him up with pain killers in the knee and fit him with a steel knee brace. The Raiders dont look bad either and The Chargers have a history of pulling a rabbit out of their a$$ in December.
ROBJETS Icon : (28 September 2015 - 02:32 PM) The Raiders may be a question mark but Carr is good and they have a legit rb. The only ones Im counting out right now are the Browns. Titans, Jags, Ravens, Texans, Dolphins in the AFC. to early to tell for the rest of the teams
Jetsman05 Icon : (28 September 2015 - 03:09 PM) painkillers and a steel brace
Jetsman05 Icon : (28 September 2015 - 03:09 PM) f*** ya
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 September 2015 - 03:21 PM) bionic knee, make him robo-ben
ROBJETS Icon : (28 September 2015 - 03:47 PM) Yeah its not likely to happen but I'm pretty sure Ben has wore those steeal knee braces before and played. I'm sure you have seen them. Even a few running backs have used them. They basically only let the knee pivot back and not forward or to the sides. They do limit some range of motion but if its a sprain he can uses a brace and play if he can trot or run at all without damaging it further
ROBJETS Icon : (28 September 2015 - 04:02 PM) I actually have one of those steel pivot braces myself but its older and nowhere advanced as what they where in the NFL. I sprained my knee like 6 or 7 years back and the brace I have is two steel bars connected to a circular steel pivot. One on each side of the brace. Covered in padding that goes completely around the knee. The pad it self is is padded and a stretchable material around the steel and it has steel rung that Velcro straps fit through then strap to the Velcro in front. Its made to wear on bare skin or over pants. On bare skin its more stable but your skin gets raw in just one day. Works so so over pants and doesnt cause the skin to get sore but also the brace moves around some.
ROBJETS Icon : (28 September 2015 - 04:08 PM) They actually work really good. My right knee hurt like hell and was limping when I took off the brace but when I wore it most of the pain went away and I could even run with it on as long as I didn't tweak my knee to the sides at all. they work really good but aren't perfect. Just saying that they do help so if Ben has any mobility and can put normal weight on his knee he can play with a brace
azjetfan Icon : (28 September 2015 - 06:54 PM) I see Rob is writing books in the banter again
azjetfan Icon : (28 September 2015 - 06:55 PM) meanwhile the Bears are having a fire sale. Do they have a RT
ROBJETS Icon : (28 September 2015 - 07:05 PM) Well I sure hope he comes back soon. Im screwed. Down to Palmer in a 2 qb active each week money league. Lost Coleman Falcons rb to broken ribs, have Eddie Lacy Banged up. Drafted Gurley as a backup but he isn't playing yet. 4 max rb`s per team So screwed on rbs.Tried to start Crowell didnt work out to well..... 3 max qb`s per team Roethlesburger and Romo are down. started 201 until this week I lost bad. And for the forseeable future my team is f*cked
ROBJETS Icon : (28 September 2015 - 07:06 PM) meant 2-0 until this week now 2-1 and probably going on a losing streak
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 September 2015 - 09:03 PM) 1 more game until we get Sheldon Richardson back on the DL, IMO hes our best defensive linemen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 September 2015 - 09:04 PM) Ryan Fitzpatrick is awful, constantly underthrowing on the deep passes. WRs would have a step and have to go backwards for it
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 September 2015 - 09:04 PM) Fitzpatrick is a quality backup, but shouldn't be starting for a full season
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 September 2015 - 10:58 AM) I think we need Rich back big time
ROBJETS Icon : (29 September 2015 - 03:41 PM) Yeah we do but the defense took the Eagles offense to lightly as shown by shutting them down after they were up 24-7. We need Decker and Ivory back more. Especially Decker so Marshall isn't double and triple teamed
ROBJETS Icon : (29 September 2015 - 03:42 PM) With Decker back it will open up the run game and screen pass runs more even if we don't have Ivory. After Marshall none of the other Wr's are consistent
ROBJETS Icon : (29 September 2015 - 03:46 PM) And I was right and wrong about Ben . I thought he had a knee brace on before playing qb in the NFL but it apparently was another qb. On NFL Live they say Ben is out estimated 4-6 weeks but he said he will be wearing one of those braces I mentioned and said he never wore one before. As long as he doesn't tweak the knee by lie hits or from sacks he should be fine Abington with a brace when he comes back
ROBJETS Icon : (29 September 2015 - 03:46 PM) Meant low hits
ROBJETS Icon : (29 September 2015 - 03:47 PM) And playing not Abington....damn auto correct on iPad
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 September 2015 - 12:15 PM) We should be getting Eric Decker back this week
santana Icon : (01 October 2015 - 07:39 PM) VICK = $$
santana Icon : (01 October 2015 - 10:49 PM) Tucker = $$
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 October 2015 - 11:13 AM) Ivory is full go for this week, big news
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 October 2015 - 11:13 AM) Hopefully Decker can play as well
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 October 2015 - 03:32 PM) We need Decker
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:05 AM) Decker and Ivory are both ACTIVE!!!!!
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 07:45 AM) Just 45 min till kickoff

There has never been a time when the Giants have not looked down their nose at the Jets. The men of Mara Tech are portrayed by a fawning media as holier than thou, a totally "class" organization.

The Jets? Heathens. Their only legendary player a rebel whose cause was to pose in panty hose. Nothing much has changed over the years including Gang Green's us-against-the-world mentality, which has been magnified the past two seasons by their mouthy coach Rex Ryan.

But something is happening here. It seems like while John Mara was busy negotiating with players and their reps during the NFL lockout the Giants organization had a lobotomy and received the Jets brain in a transplant.

Look what went down last week. While Ryan was calmly answering questions posed by his chief antagonist Mike (Sports Pope) Francesa, Giants GM Jerry Reese, a guy anointed as an even-keeled operator, was bugging, spinning to the max.

Reese was playing defense but full of swagger, saying: "We'll make the plays this time and we'll get into the playoffs and we'll make a run." Reese can't be accused of stealing that line from the Rex Reader. He didn't guarantee a Giants Super Bowl win.

Still, Reese sounded delusional when he said: "We had a game plan. We're sticking to our game plan." No matter this line is impossible to swallow. Even a sainted organization must circle the wagons when the chips are down.

There was some good news, a silver lining for the Giants. At a time when the Jets owned the ink, air, and Internet, the Giants were breaking big on the back pages again. Tom Coughlin was heard from, too. Remember, he's the guy the Giants had media trained. Coughlin spoke out, saying he was "upset" over the way Steve Smith bolted to Philly. The coach was probably upset because Smith showed up five minutes early for a meeting - with Andy Reid.

"It's like lining up for the race, you're in the lockeroom, and nobody tells you the race is going to be run," Coughlin said. Very clever. The media training worked.

At least the coach wasn't hiding behind the Twitter account of Giants public relations operative Pat (Tweety) Hanlon. Here's a guy whose PR strategy includes going on Twitter and ripping fans, perhaps even paying customers, who dared to tweet critical comments about the Giants.

@BarstoolScott tweeted: On paper they ARE worse. no matter who signs your checks."

Hanlon: We don't play on paper. You know what you can do w/that paper?

Hanlon referred to one guy as a "knucklehead." He also tweeted he "could give a s--- about the proclamations at the end of the Turnpike."

Imagine if Ryan or Mark Sanchez took to Twitter to rip fans? The media would crucify them. It would become a big issue, another reason to blast the loudmouth, out-of-control coach who once was killed by the media for giving the finger to drunken fans at an MMA event.

Hanlon? He figuratively shoots the bird to fans on Twitter and skates. After all, he is a Giant. Hanlon must find this all very funny. So did the media. They rolled over for him.

Giants brass didn't care either. In fact it promoted Hanlon to senior vice president of communications.

A very Jets-like move.

Mike Tannenbaum and Ryan must have used the old Leon Hess strategy on WFAN's Francesa. They probably softened the Pope up by kissing his ring prior to him granting an audience with the likes of Plaxico Burress, Darrelle Revis and Sanchez at Jets camp Thursday.

The Pontiff didn't exactly hardball guys he had previously knocked. The main event was his one-on-one with Ryan. His Holiness must be credited for trying to prove a point - that no one tees Ryan off more than he does.

In three different ways The Ethereal One tried asking the coach if "I or anyone else" have said something "that has really bothered you." Ryan answered the same way each time, saying when he came to the Jets he realized the heat would be constant.

Ryan revealed something most managers and coaches around here are reluctant to do. "I read almost everything written (about me and the Jets)," he said.
