Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:18 PM) DeMario Davis seems like hes poised to have a breakout season at LB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:50 PM) It was nice seeing Pryor in, he made some plays. I think hes going to be the real deal and that we will hit on a stud with him
azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:43 PM) The pick by Geno seemed to be more on Nelson. Nelson sat on his route. Geno threw it were he was supposed to be.
azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:44 PM) Who knows though
santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) http://gfycat.com/Mi...idHookersealion
santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) Gotta fix that
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:35 PM) Is anyone else as concerned as I am about the secondary?
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:36 PM) I know it's preseason and all but even with Milliner in on the first game we gave up a TD on the first drive to the Colts
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:37 PM) Patterson looked like me out there and Wilson got torched last night
Smedsthejet Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:26 PM) Concerned about the right side of the OLine too - too many penalties and Giacomini wasn't that much better than against the Colts when he was poor
SackExchange71 Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:31 PM) Imo i still think howard is better then giacomini..Wish they never let him walk.Giacomini had alot of flags in seattle also
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:33 AM) Howard recieved a huge contract in Oakland. Way over his actual value.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 10:08 AM) So did we make a trade for a CB yet?
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 : (Yesterday, 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (Today, 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha

While Tim Tebow and the Jets believe they have seen improvement in the quarterback’s mechanics during training camp, ESPN’s Tim Hasselbeck says it’s the old Tebow from 2011 season.

Tim Tebow’s problems with holding on to the ball have long been documented.

From the 33 sacks in 2011 —when he played only 14 games — to the buzzer drills in practice, Tebow needs to get the ball to his receivers more quickly.

But while Tebow and the Jets believe they have seen improvement in the quarterback’s mechanics during training camp, one ESPN analyst says Tebow hasn’t demonstrated a ton of improvement from last season.

“No, not really,” said ESPN analyst and former NFL quarterback Tim Hasselbeck. “Just watching in Cincinnati, he’s doing the things we’re used to seeing him do.”

In team drills over four practices in Cortland, the Daily News clocked Tebow at an unofficial average of 2.93 seconds (over 39 throws) between the moment the ball was snapped and the moment of release. Mark Sanchez, by comparison, got the ball in out in 2.78 seconds (over 49 throws) over the same period. Every hundreth of a second counts when a Jason Pierre-Paul or a Mario Williams is bearing down on the quarterback.

But Tebow’s extra time may come from somewhere few would expect: the snap.

“There are times where I see him and I can say, he didn’t get that snap cleanly,” Hasselbeck said . “When you watch him under center, everybody’s moving except for him. It’s a split-second, but that matters.”

In the latest preseason game against the Giants, Hasselbeck’s revelation held up as the complete truth. Tebow under center looks like a glitch in a video game; he remains still and crouched over while the other 21 players on the field spring to life. An instant later, Tebow moves, but he already may be too late.

To be fair to Tebow (which Hasselbeck pointed out), he has had to deal with multiple centers this preseason, most of whom have not been named Nick Mangold. “I obviously feel more comfortable with some centers, because that’s who you usually go with,” Tebow said.

With the Jets’ woes on the offensive line, Tebow’s snap delay may be exacerbated should his role extend beyond that of a Wildcat passer.

“(With) the elongated motion, we’ve been so critical of him,” Hasselbeck said. “You look around the National Football League, there’s a handful of guys that have the same issue. But maybe they’re anticipating more than him, or are a little bit more accurate than him.”

The Jets, however, say they’ve seen progress in Tebow’s mechanics .

“I think his footwork is really the thing that I’ve been most impressed with,” said offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. ‘When I’m watching him out there on the field, more and more throws.

. . . he’s starting to understand his footwork. And this is all different for him. That’s not an indictment on him. . . . It’s just all different.”

There are flashes of what Sparano wants to see out of Tebow. The backup QB’s first pass in the preseason, against Cincinnati, was one of them.

“That was a three-step rhythm throw and that ball had to come out. And he threw that ball on time, right behind a linebacker’s ear and right to Stephen (Hill) there in a small window. That ball had to come out fast,” said Sparano. “Guys with real slow arms and slow mechanics, they can’t make throw.”

Tebow, too, has said he thinks he’s become better at being traditional passer. Asked last week if he felt like he was getting the ball out more quickly, Tebow said he believes he
