azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:20 PM) Tom Pettys brother
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:22 PM) Jets should take Collins with one of their 7th rounders if there
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:22 PM) He has more upside for a 7th rounder than anyone else
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:22 PM) He can start right away at RT
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:29 PM) He said he won't sign
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:32 PM) so he doesn't want to be drafted?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:33 PM) If Collins doesn't get drafted, he can't enter next years draft. He can only if he is drafted and sits out. So I guess he has to go undrafted
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:41 PM) going undrafted makes the most sense for collins
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:41 PM) but for teams, drafting him and dealing with his holdout makes more sense
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:19 PM) Zac Stacy was traded to us for our 7th
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:21 PM) Jets also drafted a NT with our other 7th
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:21 PM) 6'4 330 DL who is very strong
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:25 PM) zac stacy for a 7th
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:25 PM) well can't complain about that
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:29 PM) So we have 4 rbs now
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:31 PM) still would have rather taken a runner on collins but i can't complain with depth
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:32 PM) i mean they can't expect to carry 4 rb though no?
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:50 PM) Collins would have been a waste. He would not have signed. At least we have something to show for our pick. Worst case scenario is we trade or release one of our backs.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:56 PM) I know it's hard to tell without seeing a win loss record yet but this regime seems really on point.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:56 PM) For the first time in my life I can say I feel comfortable with the people making the decisions.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:57 PM) I was close with Parcells but he seemed like a short term fixer and didn't care about the long term
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 06:57 PM) SUCK FOR THE DUCK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 06:57 PM) .......oh wait
santana Icon : (03 May 2015 - 01:13 AM) Well that was a disappointment
Chadforpresi... Icon : (03 May 2015 - 01:24 AM) I like getting Stacy for our 7th rounder, assuming he can handle the fact he won't be a feature back (yikes)
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:31 AM) I like the trade, hes a quality back and adds more depth to our backfield
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:32 AM) Macc has pretty much killed it this offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:32 AM) He has turned this roster around, he has added talent and competition all over.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:33 AM) We still aren't great at QB, but our overall football team is good. We have a realistic shot at making a playoff run
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:33 AM) We may have the best defense in football. We have a great DL and secondary, that is gonna be tough on offenses when you can stop the run, pressure the QB, and blanket the receivers
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:23 PM) ok now it's time for this team to take all this talent and do something anything below a 10-6 season will be a disappointment
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:24 PM) the only still glaring issue is QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:25 PM) we got the WR problem solved, we got probably one of the best Defenses in the game and we have addressed the OL but QB will still be the glaring issue
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 09:34 AM) jets cleaning house
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:57 PM) I'm excited about this year. Could be a good year for the Jets.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:32 PM) weird how they cleaned house in the scouting department after such a successful draft and off-season so far
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) I assume they didn't bring much to the table
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:41 PM) Have to clean the table
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) Fuck the rangers
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) face off dominated holtby gtfo
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 PM) La'el Collins is meeting with Rex Ryan tonight
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:31 AM) FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH!
Chaos Icon : (Today, 05:41 AM) Damn that'd make up for the Bills not having a first rounder
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 10:59 AM) They didn't sign him yet. It's just a visit.

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.
