ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) 2nd and 3rd stringers making the team had something to prove and even our 2nd stringers got owned so yes Im very concerned. The first stringers need breaks and also if some of them get injured they need to step up. So no after this performance start to finish Im very concerned
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 06:39 AM) Meh...you're reading too much into it
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 06:40 AM) Even in seasons where the Jets blew, I haven't seen anyone refer to the preseason to complain. Ever.

Jetsman05 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 11:17 AM) I picture Rob and 115 as real life friends
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 04:01 PM) Holmes can still play, problem is that hes also a cancer. He wore out his welcome with the Jets
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 08:23 PM) did Hill get cut?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Whos ready for the season!!? WOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2014 - 11:54 AM) Hill has been cut
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 August 2014 - 01:24 PM) Who wants to take bets he ends up in NE
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:18 PM) We'll I guess you guys are fools then in thinking im a fool for being concerned. Do any of you even know that in 2013 the Jets gave up the most passing yards in the franchise since 1986? And our secondary right now is worse than last year right now. To not be concerned is utterly foolish.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:19 PM) Unless our d-line has a monstrous year odds are the team will be eaten up in the pass. Every team will game plan to exploit the pass this year.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:56 PM) Patterson got cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:24 PM) Patterson must have been a huge cancer to get cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:26 PM) is there a midseason draft? we need a DB!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) Our week 1 starting CBs will be Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls... wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) interesting that Simms and Boyd were released
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 04:00 PM) No more McIntyre
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:20 PM) Pretty sure some of these cuts like Simms and McIntyre were made for removing some more cap space to try to find some decent corners and maybe another reliable wr. Possibly get some players cheap. I'd say the current 53 roster will change a good bit in the next week.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:23 PM) I just hope Geno doesn't get hurt or we are horse f*cked. Vick sure as hell can't stay healthy for a full season. I guess the FO could also be think of picking up an old vet cut as 3rd qb. Simms is ok but I'd never trust him to win a regular season game if he was put in.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:25 PM) Anyway it's going yo be an interesting week.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) I doubt it was about freeing up money, considering we are way under. Like more than $20 mil, way more than enough to find some vet minimum CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:19 PM) it's more about the roster numbers. McIntyre was replaced by rookies. IK showed flashes when he played
bleedsgreen Icon : (31 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) McIntyre is a shock to me he was a solid backup and made some big plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) 1 week till we are 1-0
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) we need to annihilate the GAYders
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:28 PM) We claimed McFadden from the Browns. Knows the system should be able to contribute right away
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:29 PM) Watching the Browns game now. Playing all three CB spots. Looks OK. A little grabby although he has not been called for it
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:30 PM) Might be a little aggressive and get burnt over top
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 10:26 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) ^^^ agreed
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) all the admins on this page should be fired
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) for being assclowns
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:17 PM) The Jets are fucked at CB, signing some bums now. We need Milliner to get healthy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:20 PM) We have signed CB Phillip Adams
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) The Gayders are playing Derek Carr against the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) our D Line better put him in a WORLD OF PAIN
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:11 PM) Rookie QB in our house...Rex do your thing!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:56 PM) with Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls as our starting CBs
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:00 PM) our offense should be better than last year, Geno looks more comfortable
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:03 PM) The Jets released Jeremiah George and Ellis Lankster, hopefully George finds his way to the PS. AJ Edds was re-signed

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.
