The long off season looms
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:18 AM) what up home dawgs?
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:22 AM) long time no chat, Ya boy has returned from the depths. Good to see everyone alive and well. Another season down the drain... what else is new? Fitz coming back next yr means we wont be going to the superbowl. We seriously need to land a QB. I hope Petty is the future and Im still quietly waiting for Geno to show up. IF they retain him it would speak volumes
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 January 2016 - 11:23 AM) I'm done with Geno. Never really expected much from him from the beginning. So I'm also looking for Petty to be the future.

MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:16 PM) S-Dubb??.Who's that guy?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:17 PM) FIRE S-DUBB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Dubb and Amen? Did I take a wrong turn and land back in 2007?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Haha good to see both of you
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:28 PM) I don't care if Cro comes back, I think Marcus Williams can start opposite Revis. Hes a ball hawk and has performed well everytime hes called on.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) I want Fitz back as starter, he lacks arm talent but he is scrappy
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) The team loves him as a leader and he is a good bridge QB as we groom a QB of the future.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He also has top notch pocket awareness.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He allows our playmakers to make plays. After years of terrible QB play, I'll take 31 TD 15 INTs almost 4,000 yards
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 February 2016 - 12:41 AM) I can't stop thinking about the off season...... what the hell are we gonna do!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Maccagnan is going to have to show his worth
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) They can't have Wilkerson on that franchise tag, they have to sign him long term with a small cap hit or trade him. Otherwise we are in trouble with other FAs.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) We need Harrison back, you can't run a effective 3-4 without a stud NT.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:01 AM) I hope we get Harrison back on a 4 yr contract.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:55 PM) I really think we are going to have to tag and trade Wilkerson
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) If we keep wilk we lose Harrison or Fitzpatrick maybe both
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) And ivory
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:23 PM) We can't keep Wilkerson, Richardson, and Williams. A move has to be made
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) If the Jets want to go cheaper, they can try to trade Wilkerson and have Richardson/Williams for cheap
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Then they can re-sign Harrison, FItzpatrick, Ivory, and maybe Powell.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Kaepernick apparently wants out of SF and wants to join the Jets
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Guess he sees the Jets as a team with a great WR tandem and a quality OC who builds a offense around the players
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) No thanks
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) Unless he's dirt cheap
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:30 AM) The jets would be fools to take on that contract
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 02:09 PM) keep powell, snakcs, wilkerson, and fitz. let ivory walk, trade richardson, cut cromartie, restructure brick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 04:18 PM) Marshall said no to Kaepnerick, he wants FItzpatrick as his QB
vjdbbq Icon : (04 February 2016 - 12:07 PM) Where's Rob ? I need some ass shots !!!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:16 PM) its crazy how dead this site is
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:16 PM) its super bowl Sunday!!
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 04:47 PM) Everybody is at Rob's house ; checking out the asses !!!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (07 February 2016 - 05:17 PM) Hope Cotchery gets a ring tonight
santana Icon : (07 February 2016 - 07:04 PM) Yeah I would rather see a panther win
santana Icon : (07 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Zzzz
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (07 February 2016 - 09:03 PM) I want to see Manning go out on top
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:03 PM) Jerricho got screwed on the call in the first quarter but he dropped a few later on .
vjdbbq Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:04 PM) Screw Manning and his chicken parm .
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:29 PM) We need a pass rushing LB!! Look at Denver.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (07 February 2016 - 11:30 PM) Nothing against manning but he wasn't good at all this year and gives me hope that we can reach a super bowl with Fitzpatrick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (08 February 2016 - 06:42 AM) Denver has two future HOF edge rushers with Miller and Ware.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (08 February 2016 - 08:01 PM) NO to kapergimmick

Rex Ryan is no Bill Belichick, and Mark Sanchez is no Tom Brady. But that didn’t stop Derrick Mason from wanting to run through a green-and-white brick wall for Ryan so he could catch passes from Sanchez.

The memory of the coach Ryan was in Baltimore and the vision of the player Sanchez soon can be were instrumental in Mason’s decision to leave the Ravens and chase that elusive Super Bowl ring with the Jets.

Maybe Mason would have stayed in Baltimore with John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco if the Ravens hadn’t pursued Malcom Floyd before running back to Mason. Nevertheless, Mason’s defection should serve notice around the NFL that the Ryan-Sanchez team will be tantamount to great white sharks in the free agent waters of tomorrow.

Listen to Mason on Sanchez: “He’s one of those young quarterbacks that’s going to be one of the better ones, in the top two or three in the league, in a few years.”

Listen to Mason on Ryan, the Jets head coach and former Ravens defensive coordinator: “Rex came out always smiling. It seemed like he always had fun, even when things weren’t going right. Even four, five years ago, when we had injuries across the board on defense, he still managed to keep the guys together, and come out with a smile on his face.”

Listen to Mason compare Sanchez with Joe Flacco: “I think Sanchez is a little more vocal than Joe in his third year. I think both of ‘em will end up being great leaders of their team. Sanchez is showing it right now, being very vocal, taking control of the offense, taking control of the huddle, in a classroom. Joe is a little quieter, but he still commands that respect. I think he does it more by his play, and I played with a guy like that, Steve McNair. He didn’t have to talk much, but he went out there and he gave it his all, and that’s how he led, and I think Joe is the same way. So, hopefully, Mark could make that same progression that Joe made in his third year.

“What you do during the season is great, but once you get in a playoff game and you win some big games — he’s won some in the playoffs — then you start to gain that confidence, and I think he’s gaining it.”

Listen to Mason explain why players play for Ryan: “He treats you with respect, and he’s up-front and honest with you. And he let the guys be themselves. I think that’s what a lot of coaches tend to do, is kind of not let the player be himself.”

Mason, 37, is in the fourth quarter of his career. And yet, it is the fourth quarter of NFL Sundays and Monday nights he relishes, even now. That’s he can see defensive backs begin to let up, when their will begins to break.

“They want to play head games, and they want to see if they can rough you up a little bit ... jam you, you know, after the whistle, grabbing you, pulling you ... and if you continue to go at ‘em? Eventually, they’ll stop,” Mason said. “A majority of them will stop. There are a few — and luckily I play with two of ‘em — that’ll keep on coming at you. But a lot of DBs in this league, if you continue to come at ‘em for three or four quarters, they’re going to stop.”

Mason does not initiate trash talk, but will respond if baited. The biggest trash-talker he has encountered?

“Sam Madison,” Mason said with a chuckle. “I swear, that guy talked all game. He didn’t stop. He didn’t care if he got beat — it didn’t matter. He never shut up. But it was fun, it was fun.”

The funniest line came from Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan.

“He told me I’m going to collect my AARP card,” Mason said, and laughed.

Mason lifted more over the offseason to better endure the inevitable pounding.

“I’ve been blessed, honestly,” he said. “I haven’t had any injuries to my lower extremities, and I think that’s what kind of derails players, especially in my position.”

His new work environment has Mason, arguably a slight upgrade over Jerricho Cotchery, feeling forever young.

“Soon as I stepped into this building, you just felt the energy, the youthfulness, a team that I believe that’s on a destiny,” he said.

Listen to Mason — 924 catches, 11,891 yards and 66 TDs later — on Mason: “The guy works extremely hard. ... He’s never going to quit ... an excellent route-runner, very reliable pass catcher.

“And when you need him, he’s there.”
