ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6
MikeGangGree... Icon : (24 April 2015 - 09:40 PM) TEH RANGERS
santana Icon : (24 April 2015 - 11:32 PM) TEH WIZ
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:57 AM) Teh Suarez
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) Vic Beasley is all speed. No moves, no power. Straight up the field. Could have some big games, then nothing in the next
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) If we don't get Mariota, we should be looking at Schreff or trading down, IMO.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) A lot of good edge rushers in this draft... I wouldn't want to take Dupree that high.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 AM) Until next time fellas!
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:19 PM) Helloooooooooo
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:19 PM) Bueller
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:33 PM) Manish says the Jets should trade down and draft Andrus Peat round 1
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:39 PM) Even an idiot can say something that's right every now and then

Giants looking to silence neighbors
By STEVE SERBY

Last Updated: 10:47 AM, August 26, 2011

Inside the Timex Performance Center offices where "Talk Is Cheap, Play The Game'' is the mantra, across from what is now MetLife Stadium, live sleeping Giants who have been awakened by Rex Ryan.

The Giants have won three Super Bowls since the Jets won their only one 43 years ago and owned Broadway, and lately they have listened to Ryan referring to them as the Jets' little brothers, and a franchise that talks about the past while the Jets talk about the future.

And while tomorrow night's Battle of New York will mean nothing when the regular season begins Sept. 11, the Giants can't wait to Play The Game.

UPDATES FROM OUR GIANTS BLOG

UPDATES FROM OUR JETS BLOG

"It's gonna be an intense game, regardless of when the game is," Michael Boley was saying yesterday. "It's pretty clear that these two teams don't really like each other too much." Boley chuckled, then added: "So it's gonna be pretty intense. I've heard from guys that this is one game that they want to win regardless of whether it's preseason or regular season."

For the past two years, ever since Ryan blew into town as subtly as Hurricane Irene is expected to arrive, the Jets have dominated the tabloid backpages, the headlines and the media spotlight. The Giants strained not to watch them on HBO's "Hard Knocks'' last summer. While Ryan took his Jets to back-to-back AFC Championship games, while Mark Sanchez won four playoff games on the road, Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning haven't won a playoff game since Super Bowl XLII.

It has become clear that Rex Ryan has rattled the Giants' cage. You can read all about it in his book.

And even though the teams will meet on Christmas Eve in a game that will have playoff implications for one or both, the Giants would like to put a Big Blue sock in Ryan's big fat mouth tomorrow night.

"He's Rex, man," Boley said. "He likes to do things his way. It's different. It's a lot different than a majority of coaches throughout the league. It works for him, I guess (chuckle)."

I asked Boley what he thought about Ryan announcing that the Jets were the Giants' big brothers and would be for the next decade.

"It's talk," Boley said. "It's easy to go out and say it, but the last time I checked, the Giants won a Super Bowl before the Jets did."

Giants starters will play the first half. Jets starters may play early into the third quarter. In last summer's brawlgame, Calvin Pace blasted Eli Manning from behind and left a bloody, 12-stitch fountain on his forehead. Brandon Short left Chad Pennington with a dislocated and fractured left wrist eight Augusts ago. If it matters to the fans, it matters to the players. Even in August.

"It's gonna be a very physical game," Boley said. "For us, going into a game, one of our main things is win the physical battle."

Brandon Jacobs was asked if all the Jet Super Bowl talk, ignited by Ryan, bothers him.

"It's good for them to come out every year and have that kind of confidence," Jacobs said. "They're also in the AFC and we're in the NFC, so they can say as much as they want to say about Super Bowl this and Super Bowl that. We're playing each game every week and trying to get better every week to give ourselves that shot to play in the Super Bowl."

Then Jacobs was asked about Ryan's big brother-little brother proclamation. "Well, Rex is coaching the Jets, I would be upset with Rex if he said anything different, he's supposed to feel that way. We're two football teams that's playing out of one city, and it is what it is.

"It's gonna be dog-eat-dog in there.

"They got a good team, we got a good team, and we'll see where it goes."

It goes all the way back to the Aug. 17, 1969, when Wellington Mara wanted to pull his hair out after the NFL Giants lost 37-14 to the Super Bowl III champion AFL Jets at the Yale Bowl in New Haven. More recently, we have witnessed Woody Johnson griping about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's secret coin toss that awarded the Giants the first game at New Meadowlands Stadium. . . . We have heard Antrel Rolle and Kenny Phillips tell Miami radio they would love playing for Ryan. . . . We have heard the Jets crow about wooing a certain former Giants Super Bowl hero named Plaxico Burress away from a potential Big Blue reunion.

"When you have two professional teams playing in the same stadium and the same city, it could only be natural for there to be some back and forth bickering and bantering, stuff like that," Jonathan Goff said.

Giants-Jets will never be as heated as the first time they met after Super Bowl III, after which Jets fullback Matt Snell said: "I remember how the Giants never called us by name. They used to refer to us as 'What's Your Name' and 'Whatchamacalls It'.

"They know our names now."

The Giants, whether they care to admit it or not, know Ryan's name now.

And will do everything in their power, even now, to prevent him from trying to change the name of a place that is no longer Giants Stadium to JetLife Stadium.

I'm sorry but tomorrow's game has very little aimosity for me. Last year, I think the Giants ended up blowing us out but nobody even remembers the final score. It's going to be way different XMas eve. I already have 4 bets on that game.

Exactly.. talk to me around Christmas time. They can win all the preseason games they want. All I know is last year our 1's destroyed theirs and that's all the matters. Who cares if their bench fodder is better then ours. If I were the midgets I'd be scared to play Eli.
