RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25

ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma

Landry: Jets' D better than Steelers'

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets' defensive goal is to reclaim the No. 1 ranking, which they held in 2009. On Sunday, they intend to take down the reigning defensive champs, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Safety LaRon Landry, who already has made an impact on the field with his hard-hitting style, delivered a verbal blow Wednesday, claiming the Jets have better personnel than the Steelers. He expects their superiority to show up at Heinz Field, where the home folks are accustomed to seeing fantastic defense.

"We can be as great as we want to be," Landry said. "I'm not about to turn it into a controversy, but I think we can win over them. I think we have all the pieces that they have, even better. To answer your question, I think we'll pull it off.

"If you look at the starter at each position ... I like the matchup. I choose my guys over any of their guys, especially in our defensive scheme."

It's like old times, as the Jets' bluster is starting to return. Rex Ryan, who last month proclaimed himself "the best defensive coach in the league," already is on record as saying this could be the best defense he's had in four seasons. Several players have backed him up.

"There's just a swagger and confidence on this defense," defensive tackle Mike DeVito said. "We know we can be the best."

The Jets and Steelers are among the elite defensive teams in the league. From 2009-11, the Jets ranked first, third and fifth in total defense, respectively. The Steelers finished fifth, second and first, respectively. They have what the Jets want -- the top spot.

Landry went so far as to say, even though the No. 1 focus this week is Ben Roethlisberger & Co., he also wants to outplay the Steelers' defense.

"It's going to be a tough game, going up against their offense, but also statistically, winning each category, comparing defense to defense, I'm looking forward to that challenge, too," he said. "(I want) to win every category and outbeat their defense. Seriously."

The Jets' previously dormant offense stole the headlines in the 48-28 win over the Buffalo Bills, but the defense served as the catalyst. Early interceptions by Darrelle Revis and Kyle Wilson resulted in terrific field position, setting up the first two touchdowns.

They got sloppy late in the game, allowing two fourth-quarter touchdowns when the outcome was secure, but that didn't put a dent in their confidence.

"I feel like we have no weaknesses at any position on defense," linebacker David Harris said.

That old conviction is back, and a big reason is the new look at safety -- Landry and Yeremiah Bell, easily the most physical tandem they've had under Ryan. The Jets acquired them in free agency, signing them to one-year contracts, hoping to add more pop to a unit that had become somewhat stale.

Landry and Bell are "like predators back there," DeVito said. "They're flying all over the place. They're violent. That's intimidating for the other team. I'd hate to be on the other side of the ball, with those guys flying around.

Steelers wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery, who played with the Jets from 2004-10, said the biggest difference in the current defense and previous versions is Landry stalking the middle of the field.

"He's a physical presence," Cotchery said. "You have to find him, and it's been awhile (since I've seen that on the Jets)."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin agreed, saying Landry "brings an awesome demeanor to their defense ... I think personalities like his, from a football standpoint, bleed over to others. I think it's an inspiring thing."

The Steelers are synonymous with defense, dating to the iconic era of the Steel Curtain in the 1970s. The current unit underwent changes in the offense, but it still has three players with multiple Pro Bowl appearances -- safety Troy Polamalu, nose tackle Casey Hamton and linebacker James Harrison, who may return this week from a lingering knee injury.

By comparison, the Jets have only one Pro Bowl player -- cornerback Revis, whose status this week is uncertain because of a concussion.

The Steelers' defense is run by the legendary Dick LeBeau, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Jets don't have any Hall of Famers in the building, but Ryan made headlines in training camp by proclaiming himself the best of the best.

"I've stolen a lot of things from (LeBeau)," Ryan said. "He borrowed from us, but he doesn't admit it."

There's one thing he'd like to steal -- LeBeau's No. 1 ranking.

The Steelers running game looked pretty pathetic in Denver. If the Jets allow Redman to sniff anywhere close to 100 yards, we're in trouble.

Look in the mirror and take your own advice. Yards per game don't mean sh!t. The only numbers that matter are the ones on the scoreboard the last time I checked. We allowed 28 points. Pittsburgh allowed 31. Have a case of open mouth, insert foot disease or something?
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

Wow! Can't we all just get along? :trink39: I do agree stats don't equal much other than numbers on paper. The first half the Jets D was on. The second they played more consevative to not give up big plays. Also some of the starters did not play the whole game.

A girl doesn't want to talk to their boyfriend, they stop talking to them, they don't call them up to let him know he is getting the silent treatment.

Bart Scott is a girl who wants more attention from her boyfriend.

I agree with letting the play on the field do the talking for the team, but I didn't see anything wrong with what Landry had to say. He didn't give any bulletin board material or anything like that. He said he likes the match-up. Big deal. If the Defense wasn't confident, then we'd have a reason to be concerned. It should be a good game with Revis out & Harrison & Polamalu being questionable. If we come out with the win, people are going to be thinking very differently about this Jets team. Including me.
