Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) He's a day 1 starter for us. We've needed OLB forever
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:46 PM) Plus we generate a great rush from wilk rich and Williams
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:50 PM) I wanted Lawson bad

Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:51 PM) Lee fills a need better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) I would have liked tunsil to slide to us though. After east picking great
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) Would you take Lee over Lawson?
azjetfan Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:55 PM) I'm not inspire by that pick. Not even a little
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:01 PM) Wasn't an option. Lawson was gone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:02 PM) Lawson is more of a de. We already have too many of those. We only have 1 proven LBer and he's 32 and we run a 3-4. Lee is a day 1 starter

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:12 PM) Lee isn't a pass rusher, hes a fast athletic LB. Hes probably their future at ILB, someone who can cover in the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:16 PM) jets said he's an ILB for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) If we could grab jack he would be an OLB

ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:46 PM) JETS drafted QB Hackenberg PSU
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:47 PM) Should have picked Connor Cook.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:56 PM) I guess we are giving up on petty
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) Or giving up on geno
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) I said the rumor was they liked him more then cook
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:35 PM) I know I'm biased, but I've seen them both play. Cook is just better. Hackenberg had one good year. Cook has won more games, played in big games and won them....whatever, its done now so no sense on dwelling on it I guess. I just don't see the appeal in Hackenberg, nice kid, but I always thought he was really overrated. Oh well. I would have taken Kevin Hogan over Hackenberg.
azjetfan Icon : (30 April 2016 - 03:47 PM) From what I have read so far he had a great freshman year under Obrien in a pro style offense. At that point some considered him the next Andrew luck. Then Obrien left and they shifted to a spread under new HC who did poor job bringing in talent. He was also sacked and hit a million times. Might be shell shocked.
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:17 AM) But Chan Gailey runs a spread system - still, I'm comfortable with the Hackenberg pick seeing as Gailey will develop the system to suit his strength... I'm just glad that we passed on Paxton Lynch in the first...we still desperately need Fitz to re-sign though
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:14 PM) From my understanding the spread in college and the spread in NFL are not the same principals. I really think it was more of a talent issue and getting sacked 80 times in 2 years that did him in. I have no idea if he will make it. I don't follow college ball enough to to know. Theses are just things I read in articles.

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.

The truth hurts.

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.
