Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 08:39 AM) Stephen Hill is going to get cut, guy sucks. Greg Salas is a better football player and deserves a spot over him
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 11:27 AM) So when do we show up to 115s house with pitchforks, tar and feathers?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 12:03 PM) i'd rather see idzik go then hill. fire idzik
bleedsgreen Icon : (27 August 2014 - 12:21 PM) Hill is such a disappointment. I really was hopping for so much when he scored 2 TDs his first game
MikeGangGree... Icon : (27 August 2014 - 03:11 PM) We need to get the J-E-T-S chant back this year to the way it was
MikeGangGree... Icon : (27 August 2014 - 03:13 PM) idk if any of u guys went to any of the games last year[Im sure some of u did] but im not a fan of the drumline leading the chant
MikeGangGree... Icon : (27 August 2014 - 03:14 PM) its not the same as 70,000 people doing it during every kickoff and after every score
Jetsfan115 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 05:43 PM) injuries and poor QB play aren't good for a WR to develop
Jetsman05 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 06:08 PM) 115 and Hill. Lol!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) the excuses, Hill is just a terrible football player. no debate, just a fact. guy is soft as shit as well
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:43 AM) right cause all our other WRs were lighting it up
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 07:04 PM) Hill is useless bro lol
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:05 PM) All I can say I streamed this game and if anyone thinks about recording it from NFL Network at 4pm Eastern Saturday.....DONT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:07 PM) This game was pure sh1t. Even though it was back up players the Jets got totally destroyed in this game. After seeing this game Im really worried about the Jets starting core because these backup guys looked like they shouldn't have even been on the field at all. I just hope the starters are 3000 times better than these guys that played in game 4
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:09 PM) The Jets got horse f*cked by the Eagles in this game.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:24 PM) we are hosed in the secondary
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:26 PM) we need to cut this assclown patterson
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:34 PM) did Hill get cut yet?
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) lol. We might need to look at the Eagles cuts for possible 2nd and 3rd stringers
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) If they keep ZHill after this game I will be shocked.
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:38 PM) Philly gave us a worse ass whipping than Detroit gave Buffalo. only difference is we scored
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:42 PM) Im just wondering what manning will put up on our secondary? 70?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:12 PM) who cares about getting destroyed in a preseason game, especially the 4th one. Most of these guys won't even make the team
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:15 PM) Hill cut yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) FIRE IDZIK
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:21 PM) Yeah this game means nothing...except to Stephen Hill (who fumbled lol) and 115
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:23 PM) Hill is a bum, hes pretty much never shown much football skill. The Jets fucked up big time taking him over Alshon Jeffery.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:29 PM) I'm still pissed off about that
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:43 PM) Its not that Im worried about the preseason game itself. i could care less about that. Its the fact of how bad we got destroyed. And some of the guys will be on the team and others on the fringe so getting destroyed like that doesnt fill me with confidence
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:44 PM) It would be one thing if it was just the second half or 4th quarter but this was the whole game. especially getting destroyed in the 1st quarter and at least part of the 2nd where a lot of the guys will be on the team
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) 2nd and 3rd stringers making the team had something to prove and even our 2nd stringers got owned so yes Im very concerned. The first stringers need breaks and also if some of them get injured they need to step up. So no after this performance start to finish Im very concerned
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:39 AM) Meh...you're reading too much into it
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:40 AM) Even in seasons where the Jets blew, I haven't seen anyone refer to the preseason to complain. Ever.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:15 AM) fire izdik http://theredzone.or...rs/Default.aspx
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:17 AM) I picture Rob and 115 as real life friends
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:01 PM) Holmes can still play, problem is that hes also a cancer. He wore out his welcome with the Jets
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:23 PM) did Hill get cut?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:06 PM) Whos ready for the season!!? WOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 11:54 AM) Hill has been cut
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 01:24 PM) Who wants to take bets he ends up in NE
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:18 PM) We'll I guess you guys are fools then in thinking im a fool for being concerned. Do any of you even know that in 2013 the Jets gave up the most passing yards in the franchise since 1986? And our secondary right now is worse than last year right now. To not be concerned is utterly foolish.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:19 PM) Unless our d-line has a monstrous year odds are the team will be eaten up in the pass. Every team will game plan to exploit the pass this year.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:56 PM) Patterson got cut

Namath On Jets: 'i Think It's Just A Publicity Stunt' of course he had to add his 5 cents

Namath on Jets: 'I think it's just a publicity stunt' http://www.nfl.com/n...publicity-stunt

If the Jets are in the news, Joe Namath isn't far behind.

This has become the natural order of things. Broadway Joe is clean and sober and living the retired life in Florida. Commenting on the team he led to Super Bowl III glory appears to be his principle job at this point.

When word spread the Jets had traded for Tim Tebow, it was only a matter of time before the Jets' most famous quarterback chimed in.

"I'm just sorry that I can't agree with this situation. I think it's just a publicity stunt. I can't go with it. I think it's wrong," Namath told 1050 ESPN Radio on Wednesday. "I don't think they know what they're doing over there."

That last comment is one that could get him in trouble. The Jets have given Namath a lot of rope over the past year or so, but criticism like this likely won't be forgotten.

In other words, if the Jets are on "Hard Knocks" again (inevitable, by the way), don't expect to see Joe Willie and his popped collar paying another visit to camp.

It is somewhat of a PR stunt. No question about it. You don't add a guy like Tebow to the rotation when you've extended and put the keys in Sanchez hands. It's just so bad on so many different levels.

Who give a sh*t about Joe Namath, Kris Jenkins and all of the old tools who have no relationship to the Jets besides being an ex player.

It's no stunt. We're running a team and we happen to bring in a player that helps us fascilitate a certain aspect of our offense.

They really need to cancel these weekly calls to the michael kay show for him, cause I have a feeling Rex will fire back one day lol. Maybe Joe should hit the bottle again, so he could "care less about the team struggling"

Why? Why shouldn't he be able to say what he wants, where he wants to? When he says positive things about the Jets I don't see any of you guys making posts saying Joe needs to shut up and make jokes about his alcoholism then. It's only when he says something negative do I see these posts. He can say whatever he wants whether it's on the radio or Twitter or Facebook. He has every right to express his opinion like we do regardless of the fact that he is an ex-player.

Everytime the Jets win and play well he gives the team nothing but praise.

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.

How is somebody "washed-up" when they're not an active player anymore (and haven't been one in over 30 years)? That made absolutely no sense. Maybe if this was still 1976 it would've, but not today.

Do you agree with Cromartie saying stupid sh*t on twitter also, then? The media writes enough bad crap about us, we don't need Namath saying bad things publicly about the team. Was that quote really necessary from him? Keep your mouth shut, don't bring any more negativity on this team, let other haters do that.

Just like most of our opinions differ so does Namath's. When it comes to most stuff he comes off like a buffoon but when it comes to the quarterback position I tend to listen. Because he did play the position at the highest level.

Do I agree with the stupid shit Cromartie says on twitter, no. Do I believe he should be able to say stupid shit wherever he wants, yes. Just like everybody else. I'm not a fan of athletes and celebrities having Twitter accounts, but that's their choice and their right. If they say something stupid then that's on them. Think before you open your mouth and think before you hit the post button. It's not that hard.

It's you guys who are all upset about Namath's comments that are the ones putting stock into them. So what if the media writes bad things about the Jets? So what if Joe Namath or Cromartie or you or I say bad things about the Jets? The Jets aren't above criticism from anybody. Namath has every right to express his opinion (good or bad) like any other fan does. The only reason the media and you guys bitching about Namath pay more attention to what he says is because of what he used to do for a living (pro football player). The only reason Cromartie has thousands or millions of followers (I don't have a Twitter account so I don't know the exact number) is because of what he does for a living. Because he's famous that's why people pay attention. But if Namath was cashier at the Shell station down the street but also went by the alias "Jetsguy42" on NYJetsFan.com and said what he said on here, you wouldn't put as much stock in his comments as you do now.

Namath or any other ex-player or current player can say whatever they want in any venue they want, just like we non-famous can. This is America last time I checked. There is no rule that says only people who've never played in the NFL can speak negatively about the front office moves a franchise makes.

And like I said when Namath says positive things about the Jets I don't see you guys telling him to shut up and calling him washed up and bringing up his alcoholism then. Either he can't say anything positive or negative about the Jets at all or he (like everybody else) can say whatever he wants about the Jets wherever he wants. Regardless of what he used to do for a living.
