ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:19 PM) damn pad
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:20 PM) ??
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:20 PM) OOOOK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:20 PM) Anyway go Hawks
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:21 PM) Why the Seahawks aren't very good this year. They have 22 or 24 undrafted players on their roster because they had to let hallf or over half of their team go from last year because of having to pay so much to certain star players
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:21 PM) No team with that many undrafted players on the roster is going to be good
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:22 PM) I'm talking about the defense
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:22 PM) So they have an excuse
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:22 PM) How many starters are back from last year?
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:23 PM) They had to let defensive players go too. And that's why they refused to pay Chancellor. They don't have the money
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:24 PM) Most of the Defense is back from last season.. who besides the 2nd CB do they not have?
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:24 PM) I don't know how many starters. I didn't look through the whole active roster from last year to this year. But I know they let a good many starters go too
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:25 PM) Anyway we need them to win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:26 PM) it puts us in a 4 way tie for the WC
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:26 PM) Maybe Hou can win the division
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:26 PM) They had to let a corner and safety go from the defense and some dline from the starting line up. And some players on the online too
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:27 PM) That's why Russel isn't getting protection and Lynch is having a down year
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:28 PM) Yeah but you need to chr
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:29 PM) check my list of tiebreakers we are down in division and conference games. If the Jets don't beat the Bills and win most of the conference games no playoffs
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:31 PM) Plus we are down in schedule strength to everyone in the hunt for the playoffs except Houston but they have the win and tiebreaker against the Jets
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:32 PM) Oh and also the Bills are below us in schedule strength but have a win against us so have tiebreaker for now
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:33 PM) Chiefs have the easy schedule in the league got the rest of the season so chances of them not getting in are slim
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:35 PM) Chiefs and Stelers are in the drivers seat
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:36 PM) Right but there is a lot of games to go still
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:36 PM) who knows maybe we beat Tenn NYG Dal and Buf
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:36 PM) 10-6?? Maybe
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:36 PM) 1 game at a time I agree
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:36 PM) KC and Oakland have to play each other twice
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:38 PM) Pitt Still has to play Cinn and Denver
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:39 PM) Who they may beat.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:41 PM) We just need Sea to win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:41 PM) Game over
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:41 PM) Hawks win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:42 PM) Well if they make the PAT
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:42 PM) My bad I thought Pitt had 0 timeouts left
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:46 PM) I don't trust Denver against any good team with their backup qb in. I except the Chiefs to overtake the division. They really don't trust him either since an injured Manning is the #2 qb. He barely won last week
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:47 PM) Ben is hurt now
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:47 PM) Don't think its anything big tho
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:48 PM) But Steelers losing today and if they lose against the Bengals would help
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:55 PM) Ben has a possible concussion
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:08 PM) And Pitt plays Indy next week
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:09 PM) If Pittsburgh lose it help if indy lose Houston might be in 1st and have a tie breaker over indy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:16 PM) I just can't wait for Sunday. Me and my brother are going to the game. He's a giants fan. So somebody is going home mad
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 10:46 PM) Where is frosty??.and his MIGHTY DOLPHINS
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 10:58 PM) Marshall is 70 yards away from being our 1st 1000 yard receiver since cotch in 07

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- On a day that Wayne Hunter was excused from Jets practice for personal reasons, Rex Ryan said the team was not in the market for another right tackle despite some reports indicating they were.

"Right now to say we're in the market for a starting tackle, I don't believe that to be an accurate statement," Ryan said.

He said that Hunter had been in team meetings during the day, but that during a conversation with Ryan earlier Hunter asked to be excused from practice.

Ryan wouldn't characterize the conversation with Hunter, who has been the brunt of fan criticism since giving up 2.5 sacks against the Giants last Saturday. It was Hunter's first game after missing much of camp with a back injury.

He said Hunter would return for the Jets' next practice, and that Hunter will play with the first team offense on Sunday in the third preseason game against Carolina on Sunday.

"I'm not saying that we're looking at a right tackle or we're looking at whatever," Ryan said. "Quite honestly I'm pretty happy with the roster we have. We're going to have some tough decisions on this roster on being able to keep all our guys we're going to end up letting some good players go and that's just the way it is. I like this team -- obviously it hasn't shown up on the scoreboard -- yet but I believe that it will."

With Hunter out, Austin Howard took most of the first team reps in front of about 2,500 fans at MetLife Stadium. Brandon Moore also took some late reps off as Vladimir Ducasse was subbed in. Nick Mangold addressed the communication problems the offensive line has exhibited in the preseason, but said he expected the unit to improve, including Hunter.

"We all struggle at times and Wayne's a heck of a fighter," Mangold said.

Ryan admitted that New York can make any player's stuggles more of an issue, and sympathized with the heat Hunter is taking.

"Sometimes it is more difficult here. I've had my share of it as well and it's not easy," Ryan said. "We support each other."

At the same time, he shut down the idea that Hunter's absence was a calculated way for him to avoid the fans at MetLife.

"No," Ryan laughed. "No I wasn't."

After the practice, Aaron Maybin was asked about the offensive line. Even though it's not exactly his area, Maybin took a big-picture approach.

"Are we struggling?" Maybin said. "It's hard for me to say. But are we exactly where we exactly where we need to be? No side of the ball is, offense, defense or special teams. So I just think the offensive line understands they need to get better just like we understand as a defense and as special teams."
