ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 09:05 PM) Im proud od the Pac 12. Like everyone else I didnt feel UCLA deserved to be in the tourney. They got owned a good bit in the regular season but only 4 Pac 12 teams made it and 3 have moved on to the 16 so far. If Oregon beats Wisconsin tomorrow all 4 teams will be in the sweet 16.

RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:26 PM) seed?
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25

JSOTF Icon : (25 March 2015 - 06:02 AM) So, the question is.......Do I invest to go see the Jets vs Fish in England this season????????
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 March 2015 - 07:10 AM) I'm considering going
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 March 2015 - 07:10 AM) My brother is moving to London next year...so I have a reason to be over there
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 March 2015 - 07:10 AM) This August I should say
Smedsthejet Icon : (25 March 2015 - 02:59 PM) You both should do it...I'll buy the first (overpriced) beers as well! Got my ticket back in January
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 March 2015 - 03:02 PM) Smeds if I come over I'll be sure to check you out
santana Icon : (25 March 2015 - 09:58 PM) FIRE FIREMAN ED
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 03:58 AM) Well, I now live accros the pond and maybe some of us could meet up there?
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 03:59 AM) Smeds, where did you get your tickets?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:56 AM) Az bitches!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 AM) hahahaha, it isnt European Football!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:37 AM) They havent fucked with a disgruntled, lifelong Jets fan!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 02:49 PM) Got my tickets from Ticketmaster the day they went on general sale
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany

Countdown To The 2012 Draft Looking Inside

So, it appears Bart Scott will be back for another year of the media rodeo also sometimes know as the New York Jets football organization. Of course, Mr. T has told us before that he expects players back and in camp...always seemingly right before their nameplate gets ripped of their locker at the Jets Atlantic Health Training Center.

For now, let's assume Scott is dressed in a Hess gas station attendant uniform for 2012. It's also a pretty safe assumption this would be Scott's last year with the Jets, for reals this time. So, the question now is who succeeds Scott as Kronk to David Harris' Yzma (Emperor's New Groove reference, no big deal).

Posted Image

Inside backers in a 3-4 are generally easier to find in the mid rounds, particularly the Kronk style thumpers, as they can succeed in the NFL despite ideal speed or athleticism. Some examples are Desmond Bishop in Green Bay (6th round), Jameel McLain (UDFA), San Fran's NaVorro Bowman (3rd round), Houston's Darryl Sharpton (4th round), and Brandon Siler (7th round).

So, who are the Kronks in this year's draft?

Luke Kuechly is the most talked about ILB in this year's draft, but quite frankly he is more of Yzma, if he even belongs in the 3-4 at all....aaannddd a sure fire 1st rounder.

Dont'a Hightower is as Kronk as it gets, but he is probably a 2nd rounder, and a little too rich for the Jets blood at this point.

Realistically thinking 3rd round and on...

Posted Image Mychal Kendricks - Cal - 5'11" 240 - A little shorter than ideal, but Kendricks surprisingly killed it at the combine, pacing all linebackers in most events. Before the combine I thought you could get Kendricks in the 4th or 5th round, based on his solid play in the middle of Cal's 3-4 defense. But now, his stock is on the rise and it's possible he even sneaks into the end of the 2nd round (where I think it's too early to take him).

Posted Image Ronnell Lewis - Oklahoma - 6'2" 255 - This freight train has speed and strength to spare, but has had an up and down college career with spotty production. He actually lined up as a DE/OLB in college, but I think he might actually make a good 34 ILB. He wasn't an overly productive pass rusher, but he has the size and willingness to smack people around on the inside. It's hard to judge his stock, and could fall anywhere from the 2nd - 4th round range. Editor's Note: Please don't get too excited about the no-homo, football man crush, half naked while running photo.

Posted Image Chris Galippo - USC - 6'1" 240 - Old school Kronker who can't cover to save his life (or starting job). He reads and reacts well, can take on blockers, and generally knows his craft. Galippo is probably a late round or undrafted free agent, but he could find a home as a 34 ILB that can diagnose quickly and take on blocks.

Posted Image Vontaze Burfitct - ASU - 6'1" 250 - I'm pretty sure everyone knows his story. All I'll say is he's worth a late round pick to see if that powerful energy he has can be bottled up and thrown molotov cocktail style at the opposing offense.

yeah if Bart is returning, which we won't know really until hes here this Summer going by the Jets history of saying a guy is staying then could release during the draft if they got a guy they like, like with Alan Faneca how they released him after drafting Vlad Ducasse, well anyways if hes returning that pushes ILB down the lists of needs. I would say OLB/DE first round most likely, round 2-3 RB and WR maybe?

If we are going to be a run heavy team, I am not confident in our current RBs. I really want Doug Martin.
