Jetsfan0099 Icon : (13 August 2016 - 12:09 PM) So 1 preseason game after being out for a while, you want to just dump him?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (13 August 2016 - 12:09 PM) His coverage wasn't even that bad, he was there just didn't make the plays. Allen Robinson is a stud too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (13 August 2016 - 12:10 PM) Lets see how he does in future games, rather him make mistakes in a vanilla preseason game
RetireChrebet Icon : (13 August 2016 - 12:10 PM) It's hard for me to get excited about Forte. I have a feeling Bilal will have a breakout year. Likely do to increased workload and improved Oline
RetireChrebet Icon : (13 August 2016 - 12:11 PM) Due
ganggreen2003 Icon : (13 August 2016 - 12:15 PM) hell let's cut geno too
RetireChrebet Icon : (13 August 2016 - 12:16 PM) I agree. Trade Genome
RetireChrebet Icon : (13 August 2016 - 12:18 PM) trade Geno, take anything you can get for him, even if it's a 7th round pick. The future is Petty or Hack. If not draft another QB in a couple years.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (13 August 2016 - 12:21 PM) what team would want a QB who got suckerpunched by a 3rd stringer last year in training camp
azjetfan Icon : (13 August 2016 - 05:03 PM) The Cowboys may trade a player or a pick for Geno. With Romo being brittle and them having zero depth I could see them giving something.
azjetfan Icon : (13 August 2016 - 05:04 PM) I'm really not an anti Geno guy though. If he can mature he can play in this league. He has the physical talents but lacks the drive.
santana Icon : (13 August 2016 - 06:06 PM) I doubt anyone trades for geno
santana Icon : (13 August 2016 - 06:07 PM) jets would get like a 6th rounder for him his value would be better on the bench
Chaos Icon : (13 August 2016 - 06:25 PM) yes, yes, let's cut the former 9th overall pick because he had a poor preseason game and deal with a no good $4M cap hit.
Chaos Icon : (13 August 2016 - 06:26 PM) who would you sign to be #2? or do you seriously think petty is good for the job?
santana Icon : (13 August 2016 - 06:37 PM) the backup is always ready for the job is the jets fan mantra
santana Icon : (13 August 2016 - 06:46 PM) I need a backup
santana Icon : (13 August 2016 - 06:46 PM) WHERES MY BACKUP
vjdbbq Icon : (15 August 2016 - 07:52 AM) Would someone scratch bobrob42 ?
ROBJETS Icon : (16 August 2016 - 03:33 AM) Az..... Apparently you didn't watch the Cowboys preseason game. Romo didn't play and their current backup played a good bit with starters and backups and he looked great. Almost like a veteran. They would have 0 interest in trading for Geno now.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 August 2016 - 01:57 PM) ROB is back ; ,how's the ass ?
Chaos Icon : (18 August 2016 - 12:18 PM) we need 1 more for fantasy football!

MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 07:06 PM) defense is playing like shit
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 09:00 PM) Geno still sucks
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 09:08 PM) Petty 9/15 120 yards and a TD
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 09:27 PM) Sudfeld sucks 2 fumbles
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 09:28 PM) petty had then in the red zone going for the go ahead score
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 09:31 PM) OK we at the wash 42
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 09:32 PM) WOOOO TD!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 09:32 PM) f*** you Geno. Lets keep Petty
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 09:40 PM) Petty 15/24 230 yards and 2 TDs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 09:40 PM) Geno 6/13 1Int
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2016 - 09:46 PM) BOOOO we lose
santana Icon : (20 August 2016 - 09:29 AM) I was at the game and I thought fitz looked like crapola
vjdbbq Icon : (21 August 2016 - 01:01 PM) You were looking at GENO !!!!!!!!!!!
santana Icon : (21 August 2016 - 02:24 PM) you have a crush on geno don't you
santana Icon : (21 August 2016 - 02:24 PM) it's ok
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 August 2016 - 07:10 PM) WTF is taking so long to cut geno and milliner
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 August 2016 - 07:10 PM) they both are bums and need to go away
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 08:29 AM) it makes zero sense to cut them.
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 08:30 AM) this isn't fantasy. cutting players has an impact on the cap.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:20 AM) becuase we need them

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.

SPORTS POPE'S GREEN DAY
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.
