ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.

ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.

ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma

Peyton Hillis?

He only had one good year and is supposedly a locker room detractor but being in Cleveland and not getting a new contract would piss me off too. He fell out to the Madden Curse and will hit the FA market likely looking for a 1 year deal.

He's much stronger than Greene and a much better pass catcher. North-South runner.

For a one year deal to prove himself, what's the downside?

Depends on what the Jets have to give up or how much money to get him.

He's a UFA so it won't cost us anything in terms of compensating the Browns. On paper, he has 1 good year and basically hardly played this year. There isn't a huge market for RBs coming off of terrible seasons. I'm pretty sure he'll end up with a 1 year deal.

I'll take him. I don't think he should be our first rb option in the off season, but if we've looked around a little and couldn't find a new solid starter, i would definitely take him. He has the potential to be a top 10 back

Not a bad idea but it's a hard sell when the guy has locker room issues or is it just the guy has Cleveland Brown issues. A lot of players are happier when they leave Cleveland. See Bray Bray, Shaun Rogers and so on. I'd take a flyer on this guy.

After going with RBs in the back to back drafts, I doubt we pick out up. Who's on the FA market?

Ray Rice will be tagged
Arian Foster is a RFA
Matt Forte will be resigned
Mike Tolbert will be resigned
Marshawn Lynch... maybe
Brandon Jacobs... no thanks
Ryan Grant... what has he done
Tashard Choice was someone I liked, but I dunno if he was anything good.
Thomas Jones is going to be available LMAO

Foster being a RFA, what would a team have to give up to get him?

I believe when the Jets signed Curtis Martin from New England he was also a RFA, dont remember what they gave up

Greene>Hillis.

I like how Madden decided sacrificing one-year wonders to their cover was a better idea than putting actual stars on the front.

Madden is about selling a video game, not gauging a player's impact on his teams performance over a prolonged period of time.

Putting a one year wonder from one of the least popular teams (in a one of the league's smallest cities) in the sport instead of a star sells video games?

It was a dumb move on EA's part.

It would be the second time we pick up a guy who's been on the Madden cover.... Cause it worked out sooooo well the first time. :no_way:
Fifteen years ago after an especially disappointing loss to Miami, Esiason, then the Jets' quarterback, was making the seven-mile drive from the Meadowlands back to Manhattan.
While he was slogging through stop-and-go traffic at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, the car next to him was violently rear-ended. The quarterback threw his car into park, hopped out and ran to the woman whose car had been hit. She was wearing, of all things, an Esiason jersey, and was utterly shocked when he tapped on her window to check on her.
"Are you OK?" he said, trying to keep calm. "Are you OK?"
"Boomer? Is that you?" she asked the Good Samaritan, sounding disoriented. "I think I'm OK, but . ... "
But what?
"But you guys sucked."
Welcome to the New York Jets, Tim Tebow.

We make a trade. We don't bust the bank with Greene on our roster. We ship his slow ass outta here, plus a pick or two, and go after an accomplished back whose got 2 or so years left on his contract. So we get instantly better, and it doesn't put as much pressure on our line to block for a mediocre RB.

Also, Mark is helped with a better receiver out of the backfield because Greene is not so much on those. I just tried finding some stats on how many drops he had but I couldn't find it. If anyone out there could find that, that would be sweet and I would very much like to know his reception %

None of that is going to matter. Greene is going to run in ways where he succeeds. Greene had a 4.2 average this year, he isn't slow. Drop all those plays where he started to one side of Mark in shotgun and was run to the opposite tackle and everyone would say he was an underutilised beast. He also needs carries; he gets more dangerous the more he pounds it.

I think it is funny that people pay lip service to the notion that the game starts on the line and then focus on "skill" positions. I'd rather be the early decade Chiefs (when people thought Priest Holmes and Larry Johnson were both once-in-a-lifetime backs) than some goober team with a "talented" back who is making 10 million a year waiting to get his knee buckled backwards.

And I am also not too worried about Greene's ability to catch now that Schotty is out of town. No need to misuse players Sporano!

Arent we pretty much all set at Rb? greene,mcknight, and powell. Iam hoping more along the lines we pick up a quality Olinemen.And keep turner,hunter and ducasse for some kind of depth cause we have none as it is.And that really seem to hurt us having no depth whats so ever.

Hillis was a complete bust for the browns this year
He should of been the weapon bailing out McCoy but instead was slowed down by injuries and contract issues

It could potentially be another head case for the jets

I could see him being resigned or signed else where for a single year
He would make a good steeler or Viking

Hills and ap would bruise a defense

Neither have break away td speed though

Bruising is all they would do with the exception of McKnight of course

I'm excited for the new offense hopefully McKnight will gain a more productive roll and turns into the breakaway back we need
