Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:19 AM) jets tried to trade up for tunsil but the price was too high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:10 PM) Tunsil will end up out of the league
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:12 PM) Lee isn't a pass rusher, hes a fast athletic LB. Hes probably their future at ILB, someone who can cover in the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:16 PM) jets said he's an ILB for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) If we could grab jack he would be an OLB

Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:47 PM) Should have picked Connor Cook.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:56 PM) I guess we are giving up on petty
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) Or giving up on geno
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) I said the rumor was they liked him more then cook
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:35 PM) I know I'm biased, but I've seen them both play. Cook is just better. Hackenberg had one good year. Cook has won more games, played in big games and won them....whatever, its done now so no sense on dwelling on it I guess. I just don't see the appeal in Hackenberg, nice kid, but I always thought he was really overrated. Oh well. I would have taken Kevin Hogan over Hackenberg.
azjetfan Icon : (30 April 2016 - 03:47 PM) From what I have read so far he had a great freshman year under Obrien in a pro style offense. At that point some considered him the next Andrew luck. Then Obrien left and they shifted to a spread under new HC who did poor job bringing in talent. He was also sacked and hit a million times. Might be shell shocked.
Smedsthejet Icon : (01 May 2016 - 06:17 AM) But Chan Gailey runs a spread system - still, I'm comfortable with the Hackenberg pick seeing as Gailey will develop the system to suit his strength... I'm just glad that we passed on Paxton Lynch in the first...we still desperately need Fitz to re-sign though
azjetfan Icon : (01 May 2016 - 07:14 PM) From my understanding the spread in college and the spread in NFL are not the same principals. I really think it was more of a talent issue and getting sacked 80 times in 2 years that did him in. I have no idea if he will make it. I don't follow college ball enough to to know. Theses are just things I read in articles.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 10:24 AM) I'm stoked about getting peake in the 7th round. that was a steal. he was a projected 3rd rounder. wonder what scared teams away
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:05 PM) Jets Invite Terron Beckham(Odell's Cousin) to Minicamp
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 May 2016 - 06:06 PM) Listed as a RB had more bench presses and highest vertical of anyone this year. Hasn't played football since high school and apparently not very smart
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:16 PM) The Jets had Hackenberg as their #2 rated QB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:16 PM) Apparently, they loved Golf and tried to trade up. When that failed, their #2 QB was Hackenberg, they fell in love with his football IQ
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2016 - 05:17 PM) It would be a mistake to start him right away, hes a guy who needs development. He has the talent, and apparently he has good leadership skills and football IQ. His mechanics are off though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (10 May 2016 - 12:25 PM) Is this street thug Ryan Fitzpatrick ever gonna sign?
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:03 PM) Hey guy
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:03 PM) Is everyone excited for the Geno Smith Era?
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) Finally the kid can show us what he can do
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) I know Mr Jet is excited
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) I know Harlem is too
SecondHandJets Icon : (11 May 2016 - 02:04 PM) GO TEAM!
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 May 2016 - 10:40 AM) from the looks of it, nobody is excited lol
santana Icon : (18 May 2016 - 10:27 PM) I'm excited for geno smith. His jaw will survive the off season.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (19 May 2016 - 06:26 PM) not true, never know who might punch him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 May 2016 - 05:38 PM) f*** Geno smith
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 May 2016 - 05:39 PM) J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!!!
mgjetman Icon : (23 May 2016 - 02:01 PM) Geno really needs to go away. Double f**k Geno.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (23 May 2016 - 02:21 PM) Fitzpatrick said he wants to play for the jets and that he won't retire
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (23 May 2016 - 06:50 PM) This street thug Darron Lee hasn't signed yet

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
