Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 03:53 PM) Eagles release absent Pro Bowl guard Mathis
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 03:54 PM) get it done big mac. instant upgrade at Guard for us
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) 33 years old.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) Im not against it but it would have to be a short term deal
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:37 PM) rumor has it he wanted a raise over his $5.5 million base this year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:39 PM) 33 is young for a guard. he's got at least 3-4 more years in him
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Mmmmm I disagree.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) I would go 2 year deal.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene

santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER

santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss

How impressed is coach Rex Ryan by third-round pick Demario Davis? The Jets coach said today that he sees in Davis some of the leadership qualities that have made Ray Lewis one of the all-time great linebackers.
'I'm not saying demario is that guy, and there's only one Ray Lewis," Ryan said. "But itís interesting. His face, mannerisms, passion -- I see some things, and itís interesting."
Ryan knows Lewis' leadership abilities firsthand from his decade coaching in Baltimore. Ryan wasn't with the Ravens for the beginning of Lewis' professional career, but he knows Lewis had a presence the moment he joined the team. He sees that in Davis, and he is excited.
"It's easy to say, 'Well, this guy was a leader for his football team," Ryan said. "But does he have that thing where he can lead men? Thatís rare, and some guys have it. Ray Lewis had it when he came in. The day he walked into Baltimore, he was the leader of that defense."
Davis was scouted out of Arkansas State and came to Florham Park for a pre-draft visit. Ryan said the whole building was impressed.
"Itís rare," Ryan said. "I'm not going to say he's the leader Ray Lewis is. But there are some -- even when he talks to you, like, 'Wow, heís really an impressive person,' and he gets it. Heís a team guy, and heís not an individual guy. Heís all about the team, and he is all about business."

Not a bad draft when you get the next Julius Peppers, Randy Moss and Ray Lewis in rounds one, two and three...

I doubt we see much of Davis this season other than on special teams. But I trust Rex and Pettine's judgement when it comes to linebackers. It's great to hear that speed is not his only good asset.

lol. i'll take that. BTW i never said coples would be as good as peppers, just that he's the same type of athlete. I also never said dvais would do more then be in on sub packages and special teams. I did say hill will be a top WR in a few years though

The defense has gone backwards, yet in 2010 was ranked 3rd(as opposed to 1st in 2009), and 5th last year. So going backwards still resulted in top 5 defenses despite having no real pass rush and some terrible safety play while relegating play call duties to Pettine.

Putting Demario Davis in the same breath as Ray Lewis is silly, but that's Rex trying to talk up his guys.

To be fair, Rex wasn't calling him Ray Lewis. He said there is clearly 1 Ray Lewis, he was just praising the leadership qualities of Davis and said somethings reminded him of Ray with leadership qualities. Reading the scouting report on this guy, it says he has top intangibles and was a team leader. His senior bowl reports said how he was lining guys up in drills and really taking charge of the group.

Remember that other time Ryan said he was bringing in a guy like Lewis? He always thinks all his guys are the next-Ravens' player. Be a f***ing Jet Rex.

Scott was supposed to be his Lewis for the Jets.
