Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:51 PM) Milliner did suffer a high ankle sprain, that sucks. could linger all year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:52 PM) I think Patterson sucked vs the Colts because he was injured, which he always is.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:49 PM) As much as people criticized Tannanbaum for spending too much. It's starting to look like Idzik is going to be too cheap.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:52 PM) You get what you pay for and when you let quality players go because you don't want to pay them, this is what happens. You're left with scrub players.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 07:55 PM) I'm still on board with the Idzik plan. Even with Revis and Revis we still are not going to the SB this year. But the down time sucks. If Milliner comes back healthy by week 3 or so we should be fine.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 08:18 PM) Regardless of our SB chances this year or next year. If Idzik keeps acting like a cheapskate and continues to let quality players go, we won't have to worry about winning much of anything this decade.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) He wants to build through the draft. Not blow the bank on FA. I get what your saying but there is a balance and right now we are not one or two pieces away.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:00 PM) It's not about being one or two pieces away. It's about keeping the good pieces you have and building upon that.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:04 PM) But there is no sense in trying to build through the draft if he's only going to end up letting the good players he picks up go in FA after a few years. All because he wants to do things on the cheap.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) The Revis deal sucks but $16 million was too much for a CB and once he was gone he was not coming back.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 01:00 PM) Eh. I think with our current cap situation we will be able to retain guys like Wilkerson and whomever we want to keep. We are in a good position right now.
Mr_Jet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 02:00 PM) landed revis abck. got DRC, nope we take patterson who got owned and always hurt. milner always hurt. 3rd round CB done for season. were gonna get passed on all day
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 05:46 PM) I'm not saying Idzik is perfect. I just like the direction we are heading. It's going to take some patience.
RetireChrebet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:27 PM) I like how our lack of secondary is the hot topic right now. The bigger issue is we still will not be able to throw the ball. We are not going to do much of anything regardless until we get a QB. Sorry for being so negative just my honest opinion.
RetireChrebet Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:29 PM) With that said I think our running game with CJ and Powell will be top 10 or somewhere around there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 06:35 PM) i have faith that if geno messes up that vick can come in and do well. but i have 0 faith in our secondary right now which has been our strong point for the past 4 years or so
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:35 PM) I agree 115. but the one thing is Rex has done some good things in the past with shitty DBs and still had a solid D going back to his years in BAL
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:37 PM) Corey Ivy CB
36 Jim Leonhard SS/PR
43 Haruki Nakamura FS
25 Evan Oglesby CB
20 Ed Reed FS
22 Samari Rolle CB
39 Daren Stone FS
41 Frank Walker CB
31 Fabian Washington in 2008
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 August 2014 - 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (19 August 2014 - 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 August 2014 - 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (20 August 2014 - 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) The JETS are #6 in the Forbes List for most franchise value
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 06:59 PM) The Buffalo Jills are #31 and the Miami Dolphags are #16 respectively
ganggreen2003 Icon : (20 August 2014 - 07:00 PM) The JETS are worth $1.8 billion
jet-man Icon : (20 August 2014 - 10:03 PM) that's less than the clippers
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:07 PM) I'm very excited with the amount of preseason touchdowns the Jets have
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:21 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:22 PM) Calvin Pryor and Darrin Walls will start tomorrow
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) The SIMPSONS MARATHON has been on for almost 12 hours...
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 PM) Sanchez looks so much more confident and better in Chip's offense than he did with us
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:50 PM) EVERY SIMPSONS EVER!!!!!
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 07:10 AM) Sanchez is looking good for the eagles. Crazy how a good offense and the right system can make you look so much better. When you're put into a situatuon to succeed, magic happens. Happy for Sanchez, i think he needed a change just as much as the Jets did.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 08:02 AM) Preseason doesn't matter at all
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 11:10 AM) anyone have a stream for the preseaosn agme by chance?

CORTLAND, N.Y. -- Yeremiah Bell is a steel-tough safety from a Kentucky mill town. LaRon Landry is a safety with a physique that looks like it was produced in one of those steel mills. Together, they expect to send a message to opposing tight ends -- yes, including the Gronk:


Watch your step.


"We're just not going to let guys run down the field," Bell said during a break at the New York Jets' training camp. "That's one thing we're not going to do. We're going to get our hands on them early and beat them up a little bit and make them earn that catch.


"When you come over the middle, and you have me and LaRon sitting there, that's something to think about," he continued. "So, yeah, we're going to give guys something to think about."


Anyone who watched the Jets last season knows their safeties, Jim Leonhard and Eric Smith, struggled to cover tight ends. They were too small and too slow. In one game, New England Patriots stud Rob Gronkowski was unstoppable, making the Jets resemble the Washington Generals.


The Jets identified safety as their top defensive priority in the offseason, so they jumped on Landry early in free agency. When Bell was released by the Miami Dolphins, the Jets wanted him so badly Rex Ryan made one of his famous home visits (shades of the Bart Scott midnight rendezvous), flying to South Florida the day after the draft.


They absolutely believe they have upgraded the safety position.


"Nothing against those two guys," defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said of Smith and Leonhard, "but we look the part now."


There are questions about Bell's speed, and Landry is recovering from an Achilles tendon injury that started two years ago. Those are legitimate concerns. But what you have in Bell and Landry are a couple of old-school, rock-em, sock-em football players. That physical style, they believe, can get the job done.


The 50 Greatest Jets

Drawn from more than five decades of history, ESPN New York presents its 50 Greatest Jets. Top 50 *Rank 'Em

Yes, even against the Gronk, a giant redwood who can run. Asked about the 6-foot-7 Gronkowski, Bell said the key is to hit him -- early and hard.


"The big thing in this league is timing," he said. "If he has to take two extra steps to get around us, that's one extra second the quarterback has to [look] off him. [Tom] Brady can't key on him the whole time. We're going to get our hands on him and rough him up a little bit. We're going to come after them."


Pettine believes Bell and Landry can cover the Gronk because of their size (Landry is 220 pounds) and toughness.


"If you try to put a smaller guy on him," Pettine said, "they're just bouncing off him."


Bell is one tough dude. After high school, he worked two years in a steel mill, making $8 an hour. No one offered him a football scholarship, so he had to save money to make it somewhere as a walk-on. That place was Eastern Kentucky.


He returned to the mill during the early part of his career with the Dolphins, developing mettle as he developed metal.


Bell already has established himself as a locker-room leader, reminding Ryan of former Jets fullback Tony Richardson. That's quite a compliment. The Jets really missed Richardson last season when the locker room was imploding.


At 34, Bell is near the end of his career, but he can be a galvanizing force in the secondary, replacing the well-respected Leonhard.


"I think the reason that I thought he would fit here was because of the style of defense that we play," said offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, Bell's head coach in Miami and a big reason why the Jets signed him. "Yeremiah is an aggressive player. He is a heck of a pressure player and I just thought that was a great fit."


Landry was the sixth overall pick in the 2007 draft, chosen by the Washington Redskins, and he was on his way to stardom before the injuries started in 2010. Before then, Mike Shanahan said Landry was the best defensive player he'd ever coached.


In Washington, Landry's nickname was "Dirty 30," for his jersey number and aggressive playing style. He's a monster around the line of scrimmage, a human missile crisis. He will be a huge factor in Pettine's blitz packages; he has linebacker size and strength with a safety's speed.


"I'm trying not to be one-dimensional," Landry said. "I love to do it all -- man-to-man coverage, blitzing, whatever."


For Landry and Bell, a big part of "whatever" will be covering tight ends. They intend to bring some hurt to the party.

If these two guys pan out I don't think there is any question that the jets have the best secondary in the league

I'd like to se Cromartie have a shot at safety and get Kyle Wilson in as the corner opposite Revis.

Well Cro's already playing DB, K.O return, punt return and WR.

Also I like safety's that like to hit. Cro's not very physical. I'll pass on Cro at safety.... although Kerry Rhodes played like a sissy and was still able to do his thang.

In todays league, you have to be at least 3 deep with quality CBs. Cromartie wouldn't make a very good safety either, too soft.

The fines don't really matter to me. If he hits a WR hard enough to warrant a fine, but during the game, that WR is playing more tentatively, then it's worth it in my book.
