Lets go cotchery
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2016 - 09:44 PM) Or tag and trade him. No way we should just let him walk
vjdbbq Icon : (27 January 2016 - 08:24 AM) We need Cro and Brick but for less salary .
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:18 AM) what up home dawgs?
S-Dubb Icon : (29 January 2016 - 10:22 AM) long time no chat, Ya boy has returned from the depths. Good to see everyone alive and well. Another season down the drain... what else is new? Fitz coming back next yr means we wont be going to the superbowl. We seriously need to land a QB. I hope Petty is the future and Im still quietly waiting for Geno to show up. IF they retain him it would speak volumes
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 January 2016 - 11:23 AM) I'm done with Geno. Never really expected much from him from the beginning. So I'm also looking for Petty to be the future.
vjdbbq Icon : (29 January 2016 - 04:33 PM) GENO SUCKS MONKEY DICK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:16 PM) S-Dubb??.Who's that guy?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 January 2016 - 07:17 PM) FIRE S-DUBB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Dubb and Amen? Did I take a wrong turn and land back in 2007?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 09:10 AM) Haha good to see both of you
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:28 PM) I don't care if Cro comes back, I think Marcus Williams can start opposite Revis. Hes a ball hawk and has performed well everytime hes called on.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) I want Fitz back as starter, he lacks arm talent but he is scrappy
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:41 PM) The team loves him as a leader and he is a good bridge QB as we groom a QB of the future.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He also has top notch pocket awareness.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2016 - 03:42 PM) He allows our playmakers to make plays. After years of terrible QB play, I'll take 31 TD 15 INTs almost 4,000 yards
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 February 2016 - 12:41 AM) I can't stop thinking about the off season...... what the hell are we gonna do!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Maccagnan is going to have to show his worth
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) They can't have Wilkerson on that franchise tag, they have to sign him long term with a small cap hit or trade him. Otherwise we are in trouble with other FAs.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:00 AM) We need Harrison back, you can't run a effective 3-4 without a stud NT.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 10:01 AM) I hope we get Harrison back on a 4 yr contract.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:55 PM) I really think we are going to have to tag and trade Wilkerson
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) If we keep wilk we lose Harrison or Fitzpatrick maybe both
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 February 2016 - 12:56 PM) And ivory
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:23 PM) We can't keep Wilkerson, Richardson, and Williams. A move has to be made
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) If the Jets want to go cheaper, they can try to trade Wilkerson and have Richardson/Williams for cheap
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 February 2016 - 07:25 PM) Then they can re-sign Harrison, FItzpatrick, Ivory, and maybe Powell.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Kaepernick apparently wants out of SF and wants to join the Jets
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 09:59 AM) Guess he sees the Jets as a team with a great WR tandem and a quality OC who builds a offense around the players
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) No thanks
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:29 AM) Unless he's dirt cheap
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 February 2016 - 10:30 AM) The jets would be fools to take on that contract
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 02:09 PM) keep powell, snakcs, wilkerson, and fitz. let ivory walk, trade richardson, cut cromartie, restructure brick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 February 2016 - 04:18 PM) Marshall said no to Kaepnerick, he wants FItzpatrick as his QB
vjdbbq Icon : (04 February 2016 - 12:07 PM) Where's Rob ? I need some ass shots !!!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:16 PM) its crazy how dead this site is
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:16 PM) its super bowl Sunday!!
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 04:47 PM) Everybody is at Rob's house ; checking out the asses !!!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 05:17 PM) Hope Cotchery gets a ring tonight
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:04 PM) Yeah I would rather see a panther win
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:25 PM) Zzzz
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:03 PM) I want to see Manning go out on top
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 11:03 PM) Jerricho got screwed on the call in the first quarter but he dropped a few later on .
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 11:04 PM) Screw Manning and his chicken parm .
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:29 PM) We need a pass rushing LB!! Look at Denver.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 PM) Nothing against manning but he wasn't good at all this year and gives me hope that we can reach a super bowl with Fitzpatrick

Hakeem Nicks on New York Jets: "They like being in the limelight. We don't gotta sit here and boost ourselves up."
April 16, 2012 – 5:30 am by Steven Cuce

After a two-plus month party in wake of their Super Bowl win, the New York Giants are close to getting started in earnest on their preparations for the 2012-13 season. Hakeem Nicks was a big reason for the Giants success last season being the number one target for Eli Manning. Although the Giants say they never go out of their way to trash talk or be headline grabbing divas, they sure like to let the New York Jets know who are the kings of the Big Apple now. Count Hakeem Nicks as one of these players who certainly backs it up on the field, but is first perfectly willing to take a jab at the Jets when given the proper forum.


Hakeem Nicks
joined WFNZ in Charlotte with The Drive to discuss Eli Manning never folding under pressure, the turmoil that has plagued the North Carolina football program, the New York Giants being the kings of New York City, being an elite wide receiver in the NFL and the possibility of signing with the Carolina Panthers when he becomes a free agent in two seasons.

What's it like to be in that huddle with Eli Manning? How much confidence does he instill in you and every single guy on that team?

"Man one thing Eli does he never folds under pressure. He's always calm through any situation and you gotta know how to have that composure through situations when the game is on the line. When he is in charge of that it rubs off on the other players. Me being one of the leaders on the offense as well keeping the composure and our offensive line…we all just being on the same page. We know what we are capable of doing. We've been in that situation time in and time out and we just get the job done when it is time to. We look forward to it and we thrive off each other."


I know how much you bleed tar heel blue. How hard was it to watch your program go through these troubles over the years and even have your name involved at one point?

"Well I am going to start by saying [North] Carolina being the great school it is academic wise…football wise I felt like we was turning it around, but once all this stuff happened I pretty much don't have too much to say about that. I had confidence that we were going to rebound. That the university was going to do whatever it could to get the thing turned around and get the right people in there and do what they had to do to turn it around. I still bleed [North] Carolina blue. I am always going to do that."


How does it feel to be the kings of New York over the tabloid grabbing New York Jets?

"Man it feels good. We look at it like the Jets…they can get the credit. They like being in the limelight. We feed off of our coach. Our coaches [say] don't talk and play the game. I think that is what we feed off of. We know what we are capable of doing. We don't gotta sit here and boost ourselves up. We'll go out there and prove out on the field. That's what we did."


How far is Hakeem Nicks away from the elite receivers like Larry Fitzgerald, Roddy White and Calvin Johnson?

"I don't feel like I am too far. They got some years on me. It comes with respect. You gotta respect that, but I don't feel like physical wise – the way I play and statistically I feel like I can compete on a level like that. I don't really look into obviously not look into being the best for myself, but to contribute to my team the best way possible."


You will be a free agent in 2013. Would you ever consider coming back home and playing for your hometown Carolina Panthers?

"You never know what the future holds. That's all I will say. You never know what the future will hold. Right now I am a New York Giant and it's going to be like that for the next two seasons and I really can't speak out on that."

He was asked a question and answered it. Where on earth do you see him as being mad?

same reason holmes is an idiot for saying he had no regrets last year. If he didn't really care about us he would have been like "i don't worry about what they do. I just focus on my team and winning"
