ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) 2nd and 3rd stringers making the team had something to prove and even our 2nd stringers got owned so yes Im very concerned. The first stringers need breaks and also if some of them get injured they need to step up. So no after this performance start to finish Im very concerned

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 06:40 AM) Even in seasons where the Jets blew, I haven't seen anyone refer to the preseason to complain. Ever.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 04:01 PM) Holmes can still play, problem is that hes also a cancer. He wore out his welcome with the Jets
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 08:23 PM) did Hill get cut?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Whos ready for the season!!? WOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2014 - 11:54 AM) Hill has been cut
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 August 2014 - 01:24 PM) Who wants to take bets he ends up in NE
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:18 PM) We'll I guess you guys are fools then in thinking im a fool for being concerned. Do any of you even know that in 2013 the Jets gave up the most passing yards in the franchise since 1986? And our secondary right now is worse than last year right now. To not be concerned is utterly foolish.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:19 PM) Unless our d-line has a monstrous year odds are the team will be eaten up in the pass. Every team will game plan to exploit the pass this year.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:56 PM) Patterson got cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:24 PM) Patterson must have been a huge cancer to get cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:26 PM) is there a midseason draft? we need a DB!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) Our week 1 starting CBs will be Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls... wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) interesting that Simms and Boyd were released
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 04:00 PM) No more McIntyre
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:20 PM) Pretty sure some of these cuts like Simms and McIntyre were made for removing some more cap space to try to find some decent corners and maybe another reliable wr. Possibly get some players cheap. I'd say the current 53 roster will change a good bit in the next week.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:23 PM) I just hope Geno doesn't get hurt or we are horse f*cked. Vick sure as hell can't stay healthy for a full season. I guess the FO could also be think of picking up an old vet cut as 3rd qb. Simms is ok but I'd never trust him to win a regular season game if he was put in.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:25 PM) Anyway it's going yo be an interesting week.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) I doubt it was about freeing up money, considering we are way under. Like more than $20 mil, way more than enough to find some vet minimum CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:19 PM) it's more about the roster numbers. McIntyre was replaced by rookies. IK showed flashes when he played
bleedsgreen Icon : (31 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) McIntyre is a shock to me he was a solid backup and made some big plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) 1 week till we are 1-0
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) we need to annihilate the GAYders
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:28 PM) We claimed McFadden from the Browns. Knows the system should be able to contribute right away
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:29 PM) Watching the Browns game now. Playing all three CB spots. Looks OK. A little grabby although he has not been called for it
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:30 PM) Might be a little aggressive and get burnt over top
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 10:26 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) ^^^ agreed
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) all the admins on this page should be fired
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) for being assclowns
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:17 PM) The Jets are fucked at CB, signing some bums now. We need Milliner to get healthy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:20 PM) We have signed CB Phillip Adams
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) The Gayders are playing Derek Carr against the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) our D Line better put him in a WORLD OF PAIN
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:11 PM) Rookie QB in our house...Rex do your thing!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:56 PM) with Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls as our starting CBs
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:00 PM) our offense should be better than last year, Geno looks more comfortable
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:03 PM) The Jets released Jeremiah George and Ellis Lankster, hopefully George finds his way to the PS. AJ Edds was re-signed
santana Icon : (Today, 11:08 AM) Fire the admins!

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.”
