Jets vs Chiefs Sunday 4:30est
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:09 AM) good
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:09 AM) Best day of the week is the day after a Jets Win!
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:12 AM) Rob you think the offense started off ugly? we scored on our first 4 drives, and controlled the ball 80% of the time the first half. We didn't even punt until the 2nd half
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:21 AM) I meant the hits on Fitz at on the first Drive or two with the fumbles and almost fumbles....The Tom Brady rule where balls that used to be fumbles are incomplete. We recovered the ball on all but one but it was ruled incomplete
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:26 AM) The offensive line stepped off after Hughes got hurt for however long he was out. I don't blame J. Marsh for that fumble because that was just a hell of a play. Imo Fitz had a career best game even with only 1 td passing. Never seen him so accurate. So yeah when I meant ugly I meant dline penetration and the 1st two drives ending up in fieldgoals
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:30 AM) But 31 points given up passing by the defense passing was bad. It wasn't just 2 long bombs and that defensive touchdown leading to 21 points. 3q1 against a bad team was terrible for the defense. Without the offense putting up 37 the Jets,would have lost so yeah I consider it an ugly start on both ends
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:32 AM) I'm glad like everyone else that the Jets won. Especially with getting with by the Bills multiple times it was nice revenge.
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:34 AM) Just saying that the Bills look like a bad team this year and the Jets have to face a lot of teams that are probably playoff bound again so yes there is a lot of concern
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 11:39 AM) fitz look good and lets not forget the 50+ yarder to decker that was called back on a BS holding penalty. plus if you rewatch it, the jets d-line was getting held like crazy and never got calls. I seen McLendon, williams, and wilk all complaining about it
azjetfan Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:32 PM) I think the game plan for the D was to keep Taylor in the pocker
azjetfan Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:33 PM) They didn't want him running around when they only rushed 3-4 guts
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:37 PM) bills fired their OC today after the loss yesterday lol
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:38 PM) yeah we didn't really rush, we just tried to keep contain on the outside and collapse the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:38 PM) on the salas TD, one of our LBers went for the sack and broke contain and pryor got away and made the play
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:39 PM) when we did rush which was rare, we had a spy
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 11:11 PM) As far as the Bills firing the oc I'm not sure I agree with it with Watkins having major foot problem with a steel rod in his surgically repaired foot but I dont follow the Bills so cant really say. I do think they need to get rid of Rob Ryan though. He had a decent year with the Browns then was terrible with the Cowboys and Saints. He isn't half the DC that Rex is. I still think Rex can be a good head coach withe the right coaches and roster but Rob Ryan isn't the answer. But if Rex wants to ruin his chance of staying a head coach by keeping his brother on the coaching staff like he ruined his head coaching job keeping Sanchez as a starter then that's his stupidity
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 September 2016 - 12:20 AM) The A Football Life of Curtis Martin is a MUST WATCH!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 September 2016 - 02:03 PM) They got rid of their OC after their defense was ripped apart
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:03 PM) Well hell that makes even less sense. The defense gets ripped apart so let's get rid of the oc instead of the dc.they didn't have much of a run game but a lot of passes yards. If they wanted to blame anyone for nearly 40 points against them it was their defense. But guess Rex used the ocean as the scale goat instead of his brother
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:04 PM) Oc not ocean. Damn Auto correct on phone
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:04 PM) And scape goatee
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:05 PM) Lol still can't get it right
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:13 PM) Not sure about anyone else but I'm extremely interested in the 49r/ Panther game at 1pm. Just want to see if the 49rs are actually good this year or if the Rams have become one of the worst teams in the league this year
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:16 PM) If the Rams have regressed that much then all the Todd Gurley owners in fantasy will likely have low points from him all year. Might even be worth trying to trade him early if they look just as bad this week before his stock drops
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:26 PM) I drafted him last year and also had David Johnson, Chris Johnson, Roetlesburger, Romo, Palmer, Barnage,, .....my whole team was stacked with starters. Entire team wasc stacked with starters. Even bench. Made tge Superbowl but did have a rough start at behinning of season when Romo and Roethlisberger wentvdown at the start of season also lost amazing starting rb and wr all within the 1st 4 games but worked the waivers really well..shut out until garbage time by a team that was terrible last year
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:28 PM) Last part meant Rams were shut out entire game even in garbage time against 49r backups
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:29 PM) Sorry about typos. Hard to type on small phone screen
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:00 PM) This is why I'm glad Rex is gone. Fire the OC after the D gives up 500 yards??
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:01 PM) UPDATE THE UPDATE!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:25 PM) Yep Rex isn't a bad coach but he needs to have all player and coach decisions as far as firing and hiring taken out of his hands. His problem is he doesn't know to separate the job from loyalty to players and is unable to let underperforming players go
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:27 PM) He was great as a DC because he wasn't in charge of roster and firing decisions. He will never make it as a good head coach until he can get rid of loyalty and run a team like any boss runs a business.
azjetfan Icon : (17 September 2016 - 07:16 PM) I loved Rex as a person. But he is severely handicapped in his skill set as a HC. He has not adapted and will not adapt. That's why he isn't here and will be fired from Buffalo.
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:05 AM) It's all guessing and I will like likely stick with my two starters that are injured and playing but D.Thomas looks like he is still in a lot of pain and Stewart is still in the locker room getting ankle treatment so both could be on a snap count
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:06 AM) I have good wr's on bench and good rb's on bench but they have bad matchups. Do t trust Diggs against Greenbay or Doug Martin against Arizona both on bench
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:08 AM) If I made changes I have Crabtree for Oakland Aagainst Atlanta and Abdullah for Detroit against 49rs as my two options I would choose if I made any changes
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:10 AM) Actually have it backwards with my running back teams
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:12 AM) Detroit vs Titans who I believe has a legit defense. Panthers have a better team but the ankle for Stewart and both the Titans and 49rs are ranked #1 against the run. Not a believer in the 49rs defensesthough
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:13 AM) Believe the Rams oline just sucks
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:15 AM) Abdullah splits carries but he did get 17 last week and also catches a lot of passes and has a better qb so could exploit the Titans still
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:16 AM) Will most likely do my own thing anyway just looking for input from those that actually study in fantasy if anyone feels like offering their opinions. If not it's cool too. Thanks
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:18 AM) If not for the injuries to the two players I'd keep them in for sure but all it takes for Thomas is a hit to the hip and a tackle by the ankle for Stewart if they aren't on a snap count already or if pain doesn't get to them.
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 12:45 PM) Well looks like leaving in Stewart was,a,bad move in locker room
MikeGangGree... Icon : (18 September 2016 - 04:54 PM) Good news! Dolphins suck
santana Icon : (19 September 2016 - 08:08 AM) Thanks professor
Jetsfan115 Icon : (23 September 2016 - 03:55 PM) updated roster. FB howsare released, TE bowman added to roster

I believe that was after all the tension. If that is the case, how will be be able to do anything next term? If he can't get anything done for whatever reason he should not be president.


There's been tension since before the 2008 election. Remember Sarah Palin's "paling around with terrorist" comment? Like I said they never wanted to work with him from day one. Honestly I don't think guys like McConnell and DeMint and Cantor really see Barack Obama as the President of the United States. I don't believe they truly see Obama as their president. Then we have these "tea partiers" that they pander to, who still believe to this day he is a Muslim born in Kenya. Just last week Rick Santorum didn't even try to dispute that "he's a Muslim" bullshit when somebody at his campaign event said Obama was a Muslim (as if that were a bad thing). It doesn't serve the Republicans in congress or the ones running for president to work with President Obama. They gain nothing from it, we might but they won't.

Hell their are some policies Republicans in congress have supported for years. Then once Obama adopts it and says "okay let's do this," they do a complete reversal and oppose what they've supported for years. That makes no sense. You can't work with people like that.

Tell me what do they gain from working with President Obama when it comes to THEIR re-election campaigns? What did it do for Arlen Specter? What did it do for Bill Bennett? When you're a Republican and you work with Obama, expect to be "tea partied" when you're up for re-election. Like Specter and Bennett were. That's happening to my former congressmen right now.

But it's like I said last night, Obama should've been putting his foot in their asses from day one. They're not afraid of him, and why should they be when they know he's not going to call them on their shit. Obama's problem is he doesn't stand up for himself. That's another thing he does that pisses me off. God I wish the ghost of FDR would enter his body and takeover.

3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

I agree. I lived in AZ and watched McCain back the whole propane powered vehicle thing that nearly bankrupted the state as well as other deals. This might sound petty but him wondering in front of the camera just further proved he was not the guy. If he does not have the common sense to stay out of the camera's way how can he lead a country. We will probably be in the same boat this year. Obama will be they guy, not because he deserves it but we have no other choice.


I think McCain's downfall was Sarah Palin. He had been talking all summer about how Obama was too inexperienced to be president, and then he picks the governor of one of the least populated states in the country and had only had that job for less than 2 years. If a Republican woman was what he wanted as his running mate he should have picked Elizabeth Dole.

Why would someone want to be president. They can make alot more money working in the private sector with fewer headaches and better rewards.


For the same reason people move to Hollywood, to get fame and admiration. Power can be just as alluring as money and one usually leads to the other at some point.

You may be right, I think people viewed her as dumb, As well as she made herself look dumb at times. She may have been one of his downfalls.

Simply put to be president you have to have ambition.

When you're a city concilman your ambition is to work in the state legislature. When you're in the state legislature you're ambition is to be a congressman. When you're a congressman your ambition is to be a senator. When you're a senator your ambition is to be the president.

Thats an interesting thought process. Nobody outside of career polititions would want to be President? I see a problem with that. I want the best person for the job, not the best current politition. I am not attacking your comment, Just find it to be a scary scenerio.

As far as general ambition goes, I don't think the reward is worth the risk. We need to have better bait to catch the big fish.

See you think being a "career politician" is a bad thing. That term "career politician" was something probably created and focus grouped by a guy like Frank Luntz for Republicans to use to as a derogatory term against their opponents. Just like things like "tax and spend liberal" and "welfare queen." Just more propaganda to use on the impressionable who want to blame the gov't for everything that's wrong under the sun. I'm sorry but I don't want Joe the plumber to be the President of the United States. Just because I'd like to have a beer with a guy doesn't mean I think he could handle the North Korean situation too. I want somebody who has had some government experience whether he or she was a senator or governor before. I want a senator who's met with foreign heads of state. Or a governor who's handled a crisis like a natural disaster. Really has the best person for the job ever come right out of the private sector? We already have too much intermixing between big business and the federal government. That's why we have the mess we have now.

The problem is not "career politicians." The problem is rich donors using their money (a.k.a. their speech) to influence our "career politicians." People like the Koch brothers being able to give millions to a Super-PAC to put a "career politician" like Scott Walker into higher office is the problem. And both parties benefit from those donations from the wealthy. But I guess when the Supreme Court says money is speech, this is what we get.

God I hope President Obama is re-elected and either Justice Kennedy or Justice Scalia retires during his second term.

I never said it was a bad thing just that that thought process takes away 97% of the availible candidates. From personal experience I can say some of the best people I have hired have been from another industry. Why would we not want to lure them into this if they are a better option?

Like I said running a company and running the government are too totally different things. I don't believe Jack Welch would've made a good POTUS just like I don't believe Bill Clinton would've made a good CEO of General Electric.

People who move from the private sector right to elected office in the government rarely do it to help the average Joe. If ever.

Thats not the point. The point is we have a small pool of people to do the most important job. Your not going to get the best nor good diversity out of a small pool.

Anybody who is at least 35 years old, a natural born citizen, and has lived in the U.S. for at least 14 years can run for president. That's a pretty large pool to draw from. Only problem is to get anybody else to notice you're running for president you'll need to already have a lot of money of your own, or have people willing to give you a lot of money. That's when the pool you're talking about becomes much smaller. And I think we can both agree that's a problem. Now how to solve that problem is the question.

Anybody who is at least 35 years old, a natural born citizen, and has lived in the U.S. for at least 14 years can run for president. That's a pretty large pool to draw from. Only problem is to get anybody else to notice you're running for president you'll need to already have a lot of money of your own, or have people willing to give you a lot of money. That's when the pool you're talking about becomes much smaller. And I think we can both agree that's a problem. Now how to solve that problem is the question.

To get exposure on a national level it would cost big money. More fuel to the small federal and more responsibility on the local government.

Yes there it is again, "small government." I bet that's the cure for the common cold too. It isn't 1789 or 1865 anymore. You will never have a small federal gov't in a nation that is over 3 and 1/2 million square miles large and has a population of over 300 million people. It is not possible to continue life as we know it and give all these new burdens to local governments who are already over extended as it is. Local gov'ts will just be lobbied and funded by the same deep pockets doing it in D.C. today. We have too much land to secure and too many people to protect to have "small government." The only way to really have a small federal gov't is to give all the land west of the Mississippi River back to France and Spain and kill millions of Americans to lower the population.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

Small federal government, not small government. I can pretty much be sure if my Mayor does something stupid like take special intrest money I have a good chance to know about it. I have no or little chance of someone in DC. What this does? It allows people to vote on actions rather than talk and B.S. I just think there is no way a person in DC will have a clue about what is best for a town/city/rural area. We cant put it all in one pot.

Like I said you can't have a small federal government in a nation as large in land and population as the U.S. is and keep living the same standard of living we currently have.

There are already mayors and city council members in bigger cities that take special interest money and are influenced by lobbyist. And now because of this Citizen's United ruling, special interest groups can use these super PACS to get their message out there and they don't have to reveal who they are. Now that money=speech your mayor could have a former staffer start a super PAC and get all kinds of special interest money to benefit him/her. And technically your mayor won't be taking special interest money because his/her official campaign and the super PAC will be two separate entities (on paper). So when the negative advertisements start up against the candidate you're supporting to unseat your special interest influenced mayor, the mayor can just say "I don't control the super PAC." And that would technically be the truth. Now how are you going to beat that?

And that's just the super PAC part of it. In your small gov't utopia there is also going to be a K street in just about every state and major city in the country. There are already lobbyist in state capitals and in big cities, it would just get worse in this world of smaller gov't. It would be like living in a large house infested with roaches. You can move to a smaller house to solve the problem, but some roaches are still going to come with you to the new house. A smaller house isn't going to get rid of the roaches, just like smaller gov't isn't going to get rid of the lobbyist.

Standard of living we currently have? I think we would increase that. I think it is clear we disagree. I will gracefully bow out.

When I say standard of living I'm referring to things like being able to turn on a faucet and get clean water to come out of it, having quick access public safety and emergency medical care just by dialing 3 numbers on a phone. Being able to send every child in America to a school to receive an education. Things we sometimes take for granted. Those are the things I'm talking about when I say our standard of living. There are many other countries on this earth that don't have those things the way we do.

I would not see any of those changing. The federal government would still have a role to play.

Having and maintaining those things in a nation that's over 3 1/2 million square miles and has a population of over 300 million people isn't cheap and can't be done on the cheap. All of those things are a form of socialism that Americans like having around and that we all benefit from in some shape or form.
