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 : (Yesterday, 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Today, 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market

- The operative word for the New York Jets veterans presently partaking in off season training is “speed”. We here Jets linebackers and offensive linemen have been instructed to drop weight in the off season as Rex Ryan wants a leaner, swifter squad for next season.
- Why was the Jets offensive line so bad last year and why did so many players underachieve? I was told part of the problem is the playbook was so thick and the blocking schemes so complicated many of the offensive lineman were over thinking all season.

There's that "c" word again. Complicated.

The only thing that was consistent about Schotty's offense was that it was complex for everybody that played in it.

The talk about the offense being complicated has been since Pennington, I am excited to see how our offense looks with a new OC. Hopefully its more efficient, I am not expecting a top 10 unit or anything but maybe one that turns it over less and has less 3 and outs. Has an identity, utilizes players to their strengths better, and stretches the field more.

most football players are dumb. anyone who thinks otherwise is crazy. sure there are some really smart QBs out there like manning, brady, brees, fitzpatrick, even our own mcelroy. but alot of the skill positon guys are pretty dumb by normal standards. schotty thought he was coaching real college kids who are smart and learn quick. he shold have dumbed it down. he'll never be sucessful cause he can't adjust to the pieces he has. shotty was trying to play chess with pieces from battleship all season

I'll be honest. After this season Rex really made it hard for me. All the hot air, all the talk.. blah, blah, blah. Then to get smashed by the Giants and Dolphins and have the team totally implode. I never really read or watched anything Jet related since. The first time I really sat down and listened to anything was Rex Ryans press conference at the combine. It was 16 minutes long, I made to the 8 minute mark and Rex spewed something like " Were not making any superbowl guarantees but this team is going to be great" I turned it off.

I'll be honest, I'm getting a little turned off by the guy.

What does this have to do with Rex? What I quoted wasn't from Rex and this talk about the offense being complicated was before Rex got here. And Rex said at the senior bowl that he isn't making any promises and said he doesn't know who will be in the SB. He just made it clear that the Jets were going to be a team next season, I think they were a team his first 2 years but for whatever reason they weren't as close last year. At least Rex is admitting mistakes and trying to correct them, hes only been a HC for 3 years there is a learning curve there as well.

This has been said over and over and again this year in defense of Ryan and let me just say, once again and for the last time till it is said at some point next season:

Head Coach of an NFL team is not a job that people get years to develop, and there is a reason for that. You don't hire a CEO or the President (he's only been president for four years, he's still learning, let's give him four more years and see if he doesn't turn out good) or even a store/office branch/whatever manager and give them forever to develop.

The idea is these guys have already proven they are ready to step into the position and should be expected to pay returns somewhat quickly. It's one thing to give a young guy who you think has a lot of upside a chance, but even then three years is a lot.

Rex Ryan grew up in a football family. His dad was a Championship winning coordinator, coached in five Super Bowls, and was a Head Coach twice. Rex is almost fifty years old and has spent his entire life immersed in football. This "he is still learning" crap has got to end.

Other teams outside of the Jets actually give their HC time, they don't just get rid of them right away. I think the Jets are either #1 or 2 in how many HCs they have had. Its not like we went 4-12 every year hes been here, we got to the AFC championship twice, and went 8-8 this year. 2 of the past 3 SB champions didn't make the playoffs the year before they went to the SB. And yeah hes been around football his entire life, but hes been a HC for 3 years. Its different a HC compared to being just a DC. No coach wins a championship right away unless they took over a championship team. The Jets aren't as loaded as other teams.

Forget development, he has regressed as a Head Coach. What were Ryan's selling points when he came here?

1) He would bring in players. (who has he brought in the last two seasons? Tomlinson and Burress? Yuck. Maybin?)
2) He would bring together the team and make a bond based on his relationship with the players. (the team fell apart and he claims he didn't realise the situation was bad)
3) He would bring the pressure (frankly, we don't get that much pressure and what we do get is coverage pressure and not because of the blitzes)

I have the same problem with Ryan I did with Herman Edwards. He hasn't progressed in areas we considered him needing development in and he hasn't kept up his strengths. That is a recipe for disaster.

Damn you guys are spoiled. How long you've been Jet fans? Two AFC title games in 3 years and you're picking apart the HC? Shit happens. Peyton Manning is supposed to be the best QB of the last generation and he's not even the best QB at his own Thanksgiving table anymore. Give it time.

Being satisfied with two AFC Championship games is what got us this season. But enjoy your 8-8 disappointments SHJ.

And once again, I never liked Ryan. I've picked him apart for three years because I don't think because someone says they are great, they are (hence, I don't think Clemens11 is a football genius).

Seriously? While Rex definitely lost touch with the team this past season, he helped do something no coach has done since that bum Parcells. He made the Jets relevant again.

1) He would bring in players........Players actually WANTED to come to the Jets prior to the locker room disaster this past season. Why? They wanted to play for Rex. Tanny & Rex both share responsibility here to get the right players in.

2) He would bring together the team and make a bond based on his relationship with the players........Rex completely screwed the pooch this past season. Let's see what he does to turn it around bcuz as far as I'm aware, the one major poison wears #10.

3)He would bring the pressure........and he did until for some God forsaken reason, the D is no longer bouncing all around pre-snap & the LB's are getting older & slower. Tanny & Rex both share responsibility here to get the right players in.

Do you want to get rid of Tannenbaum too? Until Rex has a losing season, I'm not ready to ship him out just yet. Unless shit gets addressed this offseason, we're only going to go 8-8 or 9-7 again next season when looking at our listed opponents.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

Players want to play here is my favorite Ryan myth. Lightning comes out of eyes when he walks and he can move objects with his mind too.

Look at the list of guys we have signed, straight up, as free agents since his hiring and tell me who these players are. People say that like we just have had our pick of FAs. We've had a couple of guys from the Ravens his first year and Tomlinson. Who else? Seriously. I'm not here for Jets' presser talking points.

your forgetting that the GM actually signs these players. and there is a cap. it isn't madden. they took a poll of coaches that players would liek to play for from a bunch of players and ryan was 1st and 2nd was sean payton. its not a myth. leonhard took less to play here, scott had alot of offers but wanted to play for rex. lewis wanted to play for rex but MT and rex went with scott instead. BE wanted to play here badly but MT didn't resign him. Plax wanted to play for us too and he had other suitors. LT wanted to play here as well. he had limited options but came. Jason taylor had other options too and hated the jets but came here to play for rex. who is to say brees, peterson, megatron, ed reed etc all don't want to play for rex but they have contracts and we have a salary cap. I've heard players complain about things but not once has complained about rex or said they don't want to play for him

your forgetting that the GM actually signs these players. and there is a cap. it isn't madden. they took a poll of coaches that players would liek to play for from a bunch of players and ryan was 1st and 2nd was sean payton. its not a myth. leonhard took less to play here, scott had alot of offers but wanted to play for rex. lewis wanted to play for rex but MT and rex went with scott instead. BE wanted to play here badly but MT didn't resign him. Plax wanted to play for us too and he had other suitors. LT wanted to play here as well. he had limited options but came. Jason taylor had other options too and hated the jets but came here to play for rex. who is to say brees, peterson, megatron, ed reed etc all don't want to play for rex but they have contracts and we have a salary cap. I've heard players complain about things but not once has complained about rex or said they don't want to play for him


So then how is it a selling point that players want to come here? It kills me how people will do anything possible to protect Ryan. And what do you mean "MT and Rex went with" if Ryan doesn't get credit?

So the great FA migration is a dude out of prison (who the team won't bring back), Edwards (who no one wanted after SF cut him), Tomlinson (who played well one year), and Scott (who lived up to his hype for about two years and now we are going to trade). Oh, and Taylor who made it one year. Oh...and of course, all the actually good players who you list to try and prove your point by saying that "maybe" they would want to play for Ryan (even though they wouldn't). I could do that...

Maybe Rex Ryan could be Moon Emperor...if only he could get to the moon!!!

Seriously, why am I supposed to care about Rex's supposed abilities to bring players in? He hasn't brought in anyone who has contributed for more than two seasons, and most of them have produced less than two years of solid play and many of them haven't done anything since the team let them go. It's a farce.

Exterminate all rational thought, that is the conclusion I have come to
