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.

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

Scotty McKnight is wearing No. 15 for the Jets, but his jersey might as well be a bull’s-eye.

McKnight, a seventh-round draft pick by the Jets, faces the torment all rookies do in training camp, but the wide receiver is an even bigger target because he is close friends with quarterback Mark Sanchez. Many of the Jets players knew McKnight before he joined the team, making him an easy mark.

Like everything in 2011, the jokes have moved into the world of social media, where Jets players love to poke fun at “smcknight21” on Twitter.

“Just found out that @Mark_Sanchez got a massage on our day off, the bad thing is that @smcknight21 was the masseuse,” Dustin Keller posted.

McKnight knew what he was facing when the Jets drafted him. He has spent each of the past two Decembers in New Jersey with Sanchez while on winter break from college at Colorado.

“He’s the best friend of one of our teammates and we all know him,” Keller said this week. “We know we can give it to him better than anyone else.”

McKnight has accepted his lot, and said Keller and center Nick Mangold are the biggest culprits. Mangold caught McKnight taking a nap in the trainer’s room this week, and soon it was on the Internet for the world to see.

“Lazy mcbones aka @smcknight21” Mangold wrote along with a photo of a sleeping McKnight.

“In between meetings a guy tries to catch a 10-minute nap while he gets therapy and Nick puts it on Twitter,” McKnight said. “People are calling me and texting me, like, you took a nap today at practice. It was on some gossip website. I knew that coming in I was going to be the target because guys know me a little bit more.”

Mangold may win the award for the most creative use of Twitter to haze McKnight. He found a high school photo of McKnight with long hair and inserted the picture over Peter Brady’s head in The Brady Bunch.

“I’ve known Scotty since Mark has been here,” Mangold said. “Now ... Scotty is in the building for a purpose and not just hanging around. ... He’s doing a heck of a job. He’s got some speed. He’s real smart.”

While McKnight accepts the teasing from teammates, he is more sensitive to the perception people have outside of the Jets that he was drafted only because he and Sanchez have known each other since their Pop Warner days in Southern California.

As soon as the Jets drafted McKnight with the 227th pick overall, he heard the remarks he was Sanchez’s pick.

“If anything, I would use it as motivation,” McKnight said. “I think guys on the team know that I belong here. It’s not like no other team was talking to me and then the Jets came over to me and said, here, we’ll give you a favor. I think people saw what a business this NFL is with the lockout, and for people to realistically think that an organization would just give away a pick for a player they didn’t think they could help them in any phase of the game, I think that just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.”

McKnight is learning about life as a pro, the good and bad. When McKnight signed his contract, he posted on Twitter how excited he was to officially be a Jet. It didn’t take long for Mangold to reply, “@smcknight21 ... now you can ‘officially’ go get me some coffee, rook.”
