Geno injured, IK cut, Amish Rifle starting - http://nyjetsfan.com...showtopic=38773
santana Icon : (14 August 2015 - 09:02 PM) fitz is probably the best qb the jets have had in the last 3/4 years
santana Icon : (14 August 2015 - 09:02 PM) depressing
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) depressing but true
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) Fitzpatrick can play at a average level, the Jets have had QB play on the below average level
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:13 PM) Fitzpatrick not being mentioned as a NFL worst starter is a upgrade for this team
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:14 PM) He could throw for 25 TDs if he starts every game
Chaos Icon : (14 August 2015 - 11:18 PM) 2009 with a Favre and Rex pairing could have been special
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 August 2015 - 09:20 PM) ok so who thinks geno has played his last game of his JETS career?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 August 2015 - 09:23 PM) I honestly think his JETS career is knocked out like that right hand by IK
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 August 2015 - 08:50 PM) why the hell can't the JETS ever get it right
ganggreen2003 Icon : (17 August 2015 - 08:50 PM) are we doomed for all eternity?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 August 2015 - 01:56 PM) kerly might be losing his job to a younger WR
GreenDude Icon : (18 August 2015 - 06:34 PM) We just signed Matt Flynn
santana Icon : (18 August 2015 - 07:02 PM) FLYNNNNSANITYYY
santana Icon : (18 August 2015 - 07:02 PM) hype hype hype
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Which receiver is Kerley losing his job to?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) Kerley is still gonna be our slot receiver. Devin Smith is a outside WR, deep threat and hes gonna be out for a bit.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 12:32 PM) though Brandon Marshall likes playing in the slot at times and does work there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 01:27 PM) he's apparently battling (and losing to) enuiwa
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 01:28 PM) enunwa^
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:26 PM) I haven't heard about that
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:28 PM) I read how kerley has been uncover able one on one
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:57 PM) http://www.nj.com/je...ey_backups.html
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2015 - 02:57 PM) http://nypost.com/20...appearing-role/
Smedsthejet Icon : (19 August 2015 - 03:03 PM) Any news on how Shaq Evans is performing?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:12 AM) http://nypost.com/20...ricks-of-trade/
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:12 AM) sounds like the jets think kerly is too small for what they want
Jetsfan115 Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:13 AM) if enunwa is our 3rd WR that gives us 3 starting Wrs over 6-2. compared to the 5'7 kerly.
RetireChrebet Icon : (20 August 2015 - 11:32 PM) Hopefully enunwa pans out. The jets need to start catching talent in he late rounds like most successful teams do.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (21 August 2015 - 03:05 PM) MT did for us
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 06:49 PM) Well it's only pre season but I don't enjoy watching them walk right over our defense
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:20 PM) Looks like nothing has changed from the last 5 years. Our offense is still trash
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:50 PM) Damn petty has a rocket arm!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 August 2015 - 07:54 PM) Kellen Davis sucks
Mr_Jet Icon : (22 August 2015 - 12:40 PM) Bryce Petty looked really good last night.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 04:56 PM) He took some big steps from week one. There is no question. If he continues to progress like that we may be chanting for him sooner than expected. I love his arm.
azjetfan Icon : (22 August 2015 - 06:56 PM) Sanchez looks like Drew Bree's today
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 August 2015 - 01:24 PM) WOOOOOOOO Ric Flair!
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:45 PM) The guy in the fantasy league who said we're scared of Santana... is clearly santana.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:45 PM) just sayin
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:45 PM) im only half serious
santana Icon : (Today, 09:30 AM) Also i suspect that santana
santana Icon : (Today, 09:30 AM) might be santana
santana Icon : (Today, 01:35 PM) Tough draw for Liverpool
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 02:21 PM) Suarez second best in Europe... pretty good

First catch as a seahawk is a 40yrd TD grab. For the crap this guy gets into he's worth the headache especially at his asking price. Yet we opt for Chaz. :ranting:

key difference is if edwards has a average to good year he will ask for a boat load of money
jets would rather keep small contracts at wr while developing fresh talent. i'm sure they are trying to mimic the giants in that aspect.

If Edwards is doing that in November then I'll feel we missed out on something. If Edwards had done that with the Jets he'd be demanding a bigger pay day. The money he'd want wouldn't be worth the overall production we'd get out of him. That is if he isn't getting arrested for being a dumbass.

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.

Exactly! Lets not let the first preseason game or one catch dictate our year.

other then victor cruz who they found as a UDFA taht turned into a beats they've invested heavily in early picks ove rthe past 5 years at teh WR position

1st rounders
Hakeem Nicks

2nd rounders
steve smith
sinorice moss
randle

3rd rounders
ramses barden
jernnigan
manningham

Thats 7 in the 1ts 3 rounds in just 5-6 years we've drafted only hill in the 1st 3 rounds at WR in that time. huge difference

I thought they should have kept him over Holmes last year. Braylon can get deep and Holmes can't or doesn't

I could understand if we were concerned about Edwards' injury he suffered last year, but they then went out and signed Schilens who himself has struggled to stay healthy. Other than his DUI, Braylon was relatively well behaved during his time in New York. And having seen the clip from Hard Knocks of his discussions with Jeff Ireland, it's obvious he has been most happy when a Jet and playing for Rex. It seems odd that we've overlooked him again.

We'll just have to hope that our receiving corps steps up this year, with Hill producing early, Kerley improving and Schilens contributing.

i expect nothing from chaz. out WRs are not that good

Holmes is a cry baaby and can give up at any moment but at leats he has talent
hill has talent but is a raw rookie and to expect a huge year out of him is unrealistic
kerly is solid and good in the slot but nothing special
all our other WRs suck (schillens, turner) or are late pick rookies (white)

Maybe he slept with MTs wife. why else bring in schillens over him?

Braylon is better, was an awesome teammate, loved it here, offered to take a hometown discount and instead we took holmes over him paid alot to have someone ruin the lockerrom etc etc

BE should have been a jet

He could, but i'm saying that if your a GM and not a fan you have took look at him as a rookie.

Also after seeing that 1st game i doubt it. not cause of hill but cause sanchez has no time to throw and always checks down becuase of it. a QB needs time to stretch the field

I don't think BE was a awesome teammate. Back when Holmes and Edwards were FAs, there were players talking trash about Edwards. Maybe the Jets really don't want 2 vocal WRs on the team anymore?

Jets would have never been able to get Braylon for the money he took elsewhere because he felt entitled to more here. Problem is he didn't know there wasn't that competitive of a market for him outside NY. Tannenbaum knew he couldn't sign him to Holmes money, but Edwards thought he'd get that elsewhere. Sounds like more of a team building/chemistry thing than a talent thing. Maybe the team hitched its wagon to Holmes entirely, and the chemistry between two prima donna receivers would've caused too much trouble on a hopeful run-first team.
