Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:14 PM) finally made a play on defense once Pryor came in
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:15 PM) besides that INT, Geno looks better than last season IMO. seems more comfortable and is going through progressions.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:18 PM) DeMario Davis seems like hes poised to have a breakout season at LB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:50 PM) It was nice seeing Pryor in, he made some plays. I think hes going to be the real deal and that we will hit on a stud with him
azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:43 PM) The pick by Geno seemed to be more on Nelson. Nelson sat on his route. Geno threw it were he was supposed to be.
azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:44 PM) Who knows though
santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) http://gfycat.com/Mi...idHookersealion
santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) Gotta fix that
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:35 PM) Is anyone else as concerned as I am about the secondary?
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:36 PM) I know it's preseason and all but even with Milliner in on the first game we gave up a TD on the first drive to the Colts
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:37 PM) Patterson looked like me out there and Wilson got torched last night
Smedsthejet Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:26 PM) Concerned about the right side of the OLine too - too many penalties and Giacomini wasn't that much better than against the Colts when he was poor
SackExchange71 Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:31 PM) Imo i still think howard is better then giacomini..Wish they never let him walk.Giacomini had alot of flags in seattle also
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:33 AM) Howard recieved a huge contract in Oakland. Way over his actual value.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 10:08 AM) So did we make a trade for a CB yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:51 PM) Milliner did suffer a high ankle sprain, that sucks. could linger all year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:52 PM) I think Patterson sucked vs the Colts because he was injured, which he always is.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:49 PM) As much as people criticized Tannanbaum for spending too much. It's starting to look like Idzik is going to be too cheap.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:52 PM) You get what you pay for and when you let quality players go because you don't want to pay them, this is what happens. You're left with scrub players.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 07:55 PM) I'm still on board with the Idzik plan. Even with Revis and Revis we still are not going to the SB this year. But the down time sucks. If Milliner comes back healthy by week 3 or so we should be fine.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 08:18 PM) Regardless of our SB chances this year or next year. If Idzik keeps acting like a cheapskate and continues to let quality players go, we won't have to worry about winning much of anything this decade.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) He wants to build through the draft. Not blow the bank on FA. I get what your saying but there is a balance and right now we are not one or two pieces away.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:00 PM) It's not about being one or two pieces away. It's about keeping the good pieces you have and building upon that.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:04 PM) But there is no sense in trying to build through the draft if he's only going to end up letting the good players he picks up go in FA after a few years. All because he wants to do things on the cheap.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:34 AM) The Revis deal sucks but $16 million was too much for a CB and once he was gone he was not coming back.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:00 PM) Eh. I think with our current cap situation we will be able to retain guys like Wilkerson and whomever we want to keep. We are in a good position right now.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:00 PM) landed revis abck. got DRC, nope we take patterson who got owned and always hurt. milner always hurt. 3rd round CB done for season. were gonna get passed on all day
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:46 PM) I'm not saying Idzik is perfect. I just like the direction we are heading. It's going to take some patience.
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) I like how our lack of secondary is the hot topic right now. The bigger issue is we still will not be able to throw the ball. We are not going to do much of anything regardless until we get a QB. Sorry for being so negative just my honest opinion.
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:29 PM) With that said I think our running game with CJ and Powell will be top 10 or somewhere around there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:35 PM) i have faith that if geno messes up that vick can come in and do well. but i have 0 faith in our secondary right now which has been our strong point for the past 4 years or so
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:35 PM) I agree 115. but the one thing is Rex has done some good things in the past with shitty DBs and still had a solid D going back to his years in BAL
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:37 PM) Corey Ivy CB
36 Jim Leonhard SS/PR
43 Haruki Nakamura FS
25 Evan Oglesby CB
20 Ed Reed FS
22 Samari Rolle CB
39 Daren Stone FS
41 Frank Walker CB
31 Fabian Washington in 2008
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.

Rookie QB Greg McElroy says there was a 'corrupt mindset' in Jets locker room with 'extremely selfish individuals' this season BY MANISH MEHTA

http://www.nydailyne...oom-with-extrem

Two days after Rex Ryan admitted that he didn’t have his finger on the pulse of the Jets this season, rookie quarterback Greg McElroy revealed a toxic attitude that permeated the lockerroom.

“It’s definitely not a fun place to be,” McElroy told an Alabama radio station on Wednesday. “I can assure you.”

McElroy, who was placed on Injured Reserve due to a thumb injury, reiterated the vibe that several players talked about on Monday.

“It’s the first time I’ve ever been around extremely selfish individuals,” said McElroy, who was a seventh round pick out of Alabama. “I think that’s maybe the nature of the NFL. But there were people within our lockerroom that didn’t care whether we won or loss… as long as they got their… they really had a good game individually. And that’s the disappointing thing."

"It’s going to take a lot to kind of come together next year," he added. "I think the fact that we struggled at times this year really led to a really corrupt mindset within the lockerroom. But I think we’re going to regroup and I know that we’ll be a better team because of the trials and tribulations this year.”

On Monday, one player told the Daily News that “this place is a zoo.”

Bickering between Santonio Holmes and several teammates in Sunday’s season-ending loss to the Dolphins took center stage as the Jets missed the playoffs for the first time since Rex Ryan took over in 2009.

much easier said than done. I mean we don't have a single team leader right now, and there doesn't seem to be any players with good character that will be FA's.

Man everything is getting out to the media from inside the locker room. That is not good.

McElroy isn't ripping the team he's making an observation that someone overheard.

This really isn't good guys.

Things must have been bad if our third string QB - a player you'd expect to tow the line as their job is never secure - is speaking out against his teammates.

As long as Rex and co get things under control, it could be a positive thing that a number of guys are speaking out about the locker room issues. Nobody likes getting criticised by their peers, so those who such remarks are about will hopefully get into line.

I hope players wanting to play for the JETS and REX isn't a thing of the past. Some FA's might not want to deal with this train wreck.

I was going to say something like " Our third string QB has better leadership skills than our starter" But then I realized that is not true. If he was talking on a radio station like that..... Can't be good. I am suprised they kept all the BS quite so long.

Backup quarterback Greg McElroy told an Alabama radio station Wednesday that trying to fit wide receiver Derrick Mason into the offense set it back, then hurt it even further after Mason was traded.

“Early in the season, we had signed Derrick Mason and we had him for about the first five weeks, give or take,” McElroy told 97.3 The Zone. “And we tried to go to like an 11-set, a three wide receiver set, one tight end, one running back, and that’s just not the strength of what (Brian) Schottenheimer can call.

“After we kind of cut ties with that experiment, for (Weeks) 2-3, and we were just kind of battling every week from there on out, and I think we never really got in much of a groove. We just never really had much of an offensive identity.”

After a Week 4 loss to the Ravens, Mason was publicly critical of the offense. Despite Rex Ryan’s prediction that Mason would catch 90 passes, he barely played in the following game against the Patriots was traded to the Texans two days later.

McElroy said Schottenheimer did his best to adapt, but the offense finished ranked 27th in the NFL.

“He’s an absolutely tireless worker, he works incredibly hard, but I think next year I think he realizes also we just need to do more from an offensive perspective and kind of develop that mindset and develop what kind of offense we want to be,” McElroy said of Schottenheimer, whom Rex Ryan said he expects back.

“You can’t just change philosophies midway through the season. I think that hurt us

Relax guys. These things happen on winning teams too, it's just masked because the team is winning. I really doubt Santonio suddenly became a prima donna WR this year. All this shit starts to come to light on teams that start losing. If the team were 12-4 with a bye week this week, we wouldn't be hearing about any of this.

4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

I agree winning solves all problems and we are hearing this stuff because of our disappointing season. I also believe that McElroy may be a better QB than Sanchez given the playing time to prove it - which he wont. This kid led Alabama to a National Championship and looked very good in the pre-season. I would love to see the Jets give him a chance.

It is possible for Sanchez to right his ship but I don't think so. He has happy feet and he continually throws behind his receivers - a recipe for interceptions.

I also think Shotty has to go. Look at it this way. Either Shotty calls the most conservative game plan ever because he doesn't believe Sanchez has the skills to execute a better one or he has no imagination. Either one sucks for us. But since they aren't going to get rid of Sanchez, then we are better off mentally with new blood and a new game plan.

But I really believe McElroy should back him up and if he ever got the chance, become a more effective starter.

Hopefully another TC away from everything will help bring this team back together. Rex needs to step up, be a leader and tell everyone to STFU and do their jobs.

Come on now. EVERYONE isn't talking. David Harris, Kyle Wilson and Nick Mangold haven't been talking just to name a few.

It's only been a few days since the end of the season. If all this talking and junior high drama bullshit is still going on in March THEN I'll be worried. After the Super Bowl it'll be a new season for everybody. It'll be back to work.

Was that supposed to be sarcasm? because too many people are talking. Maybe not the whole 53 man roster but enough to warrant some serious attention.

That doesn't bother you? End of the season and the locker room is going crazy and Harris nor Mangold have yet to say something. They are the veteran leaders and Jets by draft. They should step in and stop this. It is their job.

That was overrated anyway. Who have we signed since Rex came to town? Scott, Leonhard, Maybin, Plaxico, Pool. We traded for most of the better players we didn't acquire through the draft. After three years I am tired of hearing this fake media hype about how players are going to flock to the Jets to play for Ryan. Basically we signed two notable players, the rest were guys that had big time issues (bust-label, prison, injury-related history).

Ryan laid it out when Holmes first went out in the media. To him, it was acceptable. You let the kids bring home one puppy they will bring home a new one every month.
