MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) OK so Bill O brien and Sean Payton might get fired according to Fox this morning
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) I would do anything to get one of them as OC
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) texans coach? i doubt he gets fired
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) but he would be ideal if the jets were to flush bowles out

azjetfan Icon : (05 January 2017 - 09:54 PM) Sean Payton will get another HC gig. Obrien would be good.
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:18 PM) Howard from Alabama seems legit. #88 TE
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:20 PM) Williams the WR from Clemson looks like they are out to get him. He has taken some huge hits
vjdbbq Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:12 AM) We'll take Williams in the first round .
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 10:48 AM) I'd love Howard in the 2nd round if he's still there. I like Williams a lot as well, but I just don't see WR being big enough of a need, and there should be better talent on the board at 6
Jetsfan115 Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:21 PM) Raiders OC Musgrave not expected to return to OAK. what do you think about getting him? he did wonders with the oakland offense this year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:39 PM) Definitely an appealing choice given with his history of progressing Carr. We need someone with a track record of grooming young QBs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (12 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) I want Watson now! after what he did Monday night I'm sold on him at QB. He moved the ball all night on Alabama and after hurts scored that TD he just told his team "Lets end this"
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:31 PM) An Ohio prosecutor says he wants to know what punishment Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones faces from the NFL before deciding how to proceed over Jones' latest arrest, Dan Sewell of the Associated Press reports..

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WKRC-TV he's asking "what is the normal" for a player with multiple offenses and who's been suspended before.

An NFL spokesman said on Thursday that Jones' case is "under review" and declined to comment further.

Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. Authorities say he was so combative he had to be placed in a restraint chair.

Jones says he anticipates the charges will be dismissed.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:32 PM) we wont get watson. he's going 1st overall to the browns
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:06 PM) Is Watson a product of Clemson's staff and supporting cast? Taj Boyd also put up some decent numbers if I remember correctly but he couldn't even make a scout team in the NFL.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) From what I have read (although limited) he is not the highest ranked QB in the draft.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) "No quarterback in this draft -- not Mitch Trubisky, not Watson, not DeShone Kizer -- is considered a sure thing. The folks at Scouts Inc. rank Trubisky, Watson and Kizer as the 21st, 38th and 46th prospects on their big board, respectively." ESPN
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:12 PM) If we can get a decent return for Richardson we may be able to make a move into the mid teens to early 20s if the Brass really likes Watson.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:13 PM) Personally I don't think the jets have a clue on who they will take. We still have to hit FA and manage our roster
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 11:46 PM) Jets to interview Broncos assistant Studesville for OC
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:28 PM) Why? seems like a weird choice
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:29 PM) Leonard Williams replacing Khalil Mack in Pro Bowl
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm not buying Watson, even after that championship game. Dude threw too many picks in his day
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm really curious to see what we get for Richardson, but I have a bad feeling his value is at an all time low between his crap season and bad attitude
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 12:16 AM) I agree. He is a first round talent but a fourth round headache. We will be lucky to get a 2nd
Chadforpresi... Icon : (14 January 2017 - 08:41 AM) Yeah precisely. 2nd rounder would be a huge stretch. 3rd or 4th is more likely
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:51 PM) Seems like a slightly steep price but overall cool with it, he's turned into a good player and is still young. Just needs to stay healthy.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 January 2017 - 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?

i beleive he's talking about the genocide in the sudan. the islamics in a region in the sudan called darfur are killing the christians and making them take up arms. it's just another reason that i think we should be fighting this war.

This is horrible. Osama Bin Laden attacked the United States, not Sadam Hussien. Bush is a jerk, the reason he did this was because he thought there was still a job to do there after the Gulf War and his Dadda was fired too soon to finish it up and went in. Now when Daddy did it he should've, he had I think around 160 other nations giving him the nod. This lunatic had almost no countries, much less large countries. Britain was a spoof, there our greatest ally, and Blair was under a lot of pressure from Bush, bush I heard threatended him with being booted out of office. But the deal is this, we went there for weapons of mass destruction, right? Well how many have we found? I believe that number is a round like object such as 0. Then I remeber there were video cameras on the news saying here they are, new weapons of mass destruction. Well I looked in the handy dandy upper right-hand corner and what did it say? It was the 9 or 10 of October, 1993. Those sound brand new to me, I was still making gurgling noise when I spoke up.

Do you consider an airplane a weapon of mass destruction? I do now. And how do you get a hold of an airplane...money and who has a lot of money that hates the U.S.?

And as far as not having the UN backing Bush, i think everyone can now see why.... billions of dollars being filtered through a scam.

Florida Jet makes an outstanding point
Bush's policies has a gaping continuity hole
if he wants a safer world then why focus only on iraq?
Nuclear weapons in north korea
Genocide in sudan
and if he wants peace in the middle east then point our troops towards the gaza strip
he wants a war on terrorism? then al qaeda is in afganistan

What about stopping that country before they do something like Nazi Germany?


That's exactly what I was saying about Iraq. Know one will ever know if they would have turned out like Nazi Germany, and thank God we never will.

Again on N. Korea there are plenty of surrounding nations who can have the capabilites to deal with that on their own. We will deffinately step in and do something about it when the time is right, now isn't the time, Iraq is still being settled. These things don't happen over night.

HA! Do you have any idea what's going on in Sudan? That's the UN's problem and I think Bush is doing the right thing staying away from it. As you all say you can't help everyone right? The UN have known about that for years and done nothing. That is a joke of an organization.

And as for nominee, Bush had plenty of allies. It's not his fault that several Euorpean nations are corrupt and taking oil from Saddam at low costs to get the sanctions removed. Food for Oil is real, that glorious and noble UN hits another homerun!

Not what I meant. People say Bush needed to involve more countries, and he's trying, and everyone hates him for it. Talk about hypocritical...

Dude Bush got almost no support from any countries. And saying Iraq will turn into Nazi Germany is so stupid. The Iraqis have pretty much no big political parties, while Germany had the Nazi party. Iraq doesn't have someone such as Adolf Hitler climbing into any political movement, and we already have Sadam caprtured, we have 0 weapons of mass destruction found, so why are we still in Iraq? It's so stupid.

The public hates W because, when he didn't get the support from other countries and the UN, he went into Iraq anyway when it was obviously clear that was not a good idea

Every country wants out aid money for every little problem they have.

I am well aware of what is going on in Sudan, but I cannot comment on that, I will say that the Sudan will not allow any outside countries to help with that terrible problem.....

Once again, in years to come, Syria will be a rpoblem, and guess where their weopons came from?

Florida Jet,

  What are you talking about in Africa?..I am asking this for a reason.....


Kenya, Rowanda, Liberia, etc. Genocide pratice against certain tribes while the UN and others just gave it lip service. I am not saying we should have been there but please, this country is so lacking in taking care of the homeless, the aging, the improvished, medical insurance, etc. It's a damn shame that certain countries in Europe have all over us in regards to taking care of its own.

we had almost the number of countries supporting us in the second iraq war as the first. the difference was france, germany and russia didn't want to help us the second time. they all had one thing in common. they all had oil deals struck with saddam promising them cheap oil. if we went in and took out saddam then those deals would be null and void. we had over 30 nations helping us in the second iraq war. we had alot more helping us in the first one because it was us helping to protect innocent little kuwait. that is one of the main reasons we have an international community is to help small countries in need. the nature of that war commanded alot of international support.

we didn't have too much support in the second iraq war because it was our buildings getting bombed and that isn't much concern to anybody exept for the 30 nations that did help us out. people around the world were dancing in the streets when the towers hit the ground. people in paris and mexico city were burning american flags that they had put swastikas on. then some of my fellow americans are telling me that we cant go because we don't have enough international support?

it just shows me who our friends are. britain and alot of other countries didn't have to do anything but they did. they aren't our lapdogs they were returning favors. we have been sheltering germany for the past 60 years since the end of WW2 from the eastern bloc. they didn't want to play ball so bush took alot of our troops out of germany and said you protect your own country and pay your own bills from now on. kerry said to everyone that this is a strategic disaster. a guy that has voted to leave our nation defenseless for the past 20 years is talking to me about military strategy. kerry voted against every weapon system that went to congress for the past 20 years including the abrams and apache. to clarify what i just said we would still have m-60 tanks and cobra choppers as our main battle tank and attack choppers if kerry had his way. the list goes on and on. maybe we should deter our enemies by blowing bong smoke at them. oh wait. i forgot. we don't have any enemies.

i'm telling you all this about kerry because he was our alternative to bush. as an american i think that kerry is a disgrace. the whole reason we were bombed in the first place was because of 8 years of clinton picking his ass and giving arms to communist nations while the rest of the world went to hell. all because he wanted peace so badly. well now we're paying for it. when they bombed the trade center in '98 clinton got a blow job from his secretary to celebrate. when the shit hit the fan in '01 bush, and the rest of america, was stuck with the bill. i hate to sound like a bumper sticker but freedom isn't free.

We have 45 nations in the coalition:

Afghanistan
Albania
Australia
Azerbaijan
Bulgaria
Colombia
Costa Rica
Czech Republic
Denmark
Dominican Republic
El Salvador
Eritrea
Estonia
Ethiopia
Georgia
Honduras
Hungary
Iceland
Italy
Japan
Kuwait
Latvia
Lithuania
Macedonia
Marshall Islands
Micronesia
Mongolia
Netherlands
Nicaragua
Palau
Panama
Philippines
Poland
Portugal
Romania
Rwanda
Singapore
Slovakia
Solomon Islands
South Korea
Spain
Turkey
Uganda
United Kingdom
United States
Uzbekistan

As you have said Russia, Germany, and France all did not participate in the coalition. Well all those countries participated in food for oil, and in fact none of those nations really have much power. They are all struggling and as you will see, will join the newest 10 members of the European Union in becoming more and more of a free market. Those 10 nations are tiny and they are all having much more success then Germany in particular who has just began to open up their markets due to the fact that these nations are doing MUCH better with their open markets and stealing business from Germany. Germany will start to change, leading into a domino effect that will lead to the European Union becoming stronger and more free with their markets. Capitolism is proven to be the most effective form of economy and it has shown in the US. Also Britain is having similar problems with Ireland who has opened up their markets significantly.

The point: these countries really don't matter to us right now because we can ignor them somewhat and still be fine. Their not being in the Coalition doesn't matter and those who follow us are being rewarding while those who don't will ultimately follow suit.

I think American Capitalism has shown it can pollute the enviroment, create an ever growing division between rich and poor, and in general cause an all out decline in the quality of life.

And also, most of those countries are only in the Coalition because they knew they would be rewarded, not neccesarily because they believe in the cause.

FloridaJet,

I have been in Africa, if you think you have seen poverty in the US.....go there....It is terrible what has happened in those countries, and we do try to help those counries...most don't want any outside help...I spent about 8 months stationed in Djibouti, Africa. We are rebuilding schools, we send medical teams to give medical attention to the sick....we are making a huge effort and I cannot tell you how rewarding it is to see these poor people living the way they do.....it makes you glad to have the things we have....

I think FloridaJets' point was that we don't do enough to help out the poor in America. Poverty is rampant, and instead of doing much to solve that we pass laws keeping people from trying to sue fast food companies or raising military spending.

Very well put a1elbow. Like Kerry said, they are the "coalition of the coerced and bribed".
