ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:07 PM) he doesn't deserve $17 mil/year cause he is coming off an injury...he should of earned it by playing this year as the Franchise tag and then if he played lights out then you open the vault
MikeGangGree... Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:21 PM) WOOOOOOOO
RetireChrebet Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:58 PM) How much guaranteed money? also does this mean hes here for 6 years since he's tagged? how does that work?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (15 July 2016 - 10:20 PM) Now cut that street thug Wilkerson!!
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:47 AM) 54 million guaranteed
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:48 AM) 54 guaranteed against injury but 37 in straight guaranteed money without injury
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:49 AM) Should've waited till after the season to see how he comes off the injury but I guess they figure he wouldn't have signed if they waited another year
vjdbbq Icon : (17 July 2016 - 07:32 PM) Where is ROB and his ass ?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 July 2016 - 10:27 AM) guess that means richardson is gone after this season. Maybe we can franchise and trade him
Jetsman05 Icon : (22 July 2016 - 08:52 AM) whos running fantasy football league this year? brotana?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 July 2016 - 10:25 AM) darron lee still isn't signed... greedy street thug lol
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 July 2016 - 05:31 PM) Rich is under contract for next year and we used a team option for 17 already so he's a jet for 2 more year's for sure unless we trade him.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (23 July 2016 - 02:38 PM) We need to quit screwing around and sign Fitzpatrick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:34 AM) Jets salary cap situation is tough next season, gonna have to make adjustments
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:35 AM) the contract for Wilkerson is actually pretty good for both sides, after the first couple seasons nothing is guaranteed and they can cut him.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:36 AM) the jets probably should trade Richardson, hopefully he has a monster season and we have tons of leverage and deal him off for ransom
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:36 AM) Because we cannot afford to keep everyone on the DL
Jetsfan115 Icon : (25 July 2016 - 10:20 AM) we have 20 mil in space next offseason and not many people to sign. We should be ok next year. this year was worse. we could tag and trade richardson if need be. I think he will be gone too
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 07:28 AM) WE NEED FITZ WE NEED FITZ WE NEED FITZ
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:51 AM) Yes we do need Fitz
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:58 AM) devin hester got cut by ATL today, anyone think we should grab him for special teams?
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 01:56 PM) Grab hester immediately
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 01:56 PM) GM Mike , GET HESTER
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 01:57 PM) Where is everybody ?

Are the Jets Back?
By BEN SHPIGELLANDOVER, Md. – Once upon a time, I covered baseball for The Times, and while reflecting on the Jets’ victory Sunday I was reminded of something I wrote about the Mets in September 2008:

“There is little reason these days to tune in to Mets games before the sixth or seventh inning. Eat dinner, check your e-mail messages, read a magazine — but then, by all means, find the nearest television and prepare to be amazed or flabbergasted. Anything can happen, and it often does.”

Now, substitute “Jets” for “Mets” and “fourth quarter” for “sixth or seventh inning” and we could be talking about the same team, right?

After 55 minutes Sunday, the Jets trailed the Washington Redskins. On their six second-half possessions to that point, the Jets had managed one first down, and Mark Sanchez had completed 5 of 15 passes for 19 yards.

And then. And then it was as if Sanchez realized, “Oh, it’s the fourth quarter. We should try to win this game.” So they did, with Sanchez revealing two elements that had eluded him for much of the afternoon – poise and deft touch – on consecutive passing plays on the game-winning drive: a 10-yard dumpoff to Shonn Greene on 3rd-and-4 and the 30-yard spiral to Santonio Holmes, a thing of beauty, that put the Jets ahead to stay.

When asked afterward to assess Sanchez’s performance (19 of 32, 165 yards, no interceptions), Coach Rex Ryan stammered for a few seconds, and he might have been searching for the right words.

“You have your moments,” Ryan said. “I’ll take a guy who can roll up his sleeves and say, ‘You know what? We’re going to get it done.’ And everybody believes in him.’ ”

Including the postseason, Sanchez has played in 49 career games, winning 30. Exactly one-third of those 30 victories – 10 – have come in overtime or via fourth-quarter comebacks.

The very nature of that statistic evokes a team that sputters early and often, that cannot hold leads, and that has been the story of the Jets’ 2011 season. That story’s ending will likely depend on whether Sanchez will put himself in position for more fourth-quarter comebacks and, of course, whether he can pull them off.

Have the Jets’ recent victories against Buffalo and Washington restored faith that, with Sanchez calm and cool in the fourth quarter, they have the moxie to emerge as a playoff threat?
