ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 06:05 PM) I'm loving all these additions to the JETS coaching staff
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 06:06 PM) I can't wait to see what Maccagnan does in Free Agency and in the draft

The Jets are hiring Bears nat'l scout Rex Hogan as their director of college scouting. Chicago has released him from his contract
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:40 PM) @AlbertBreer 14m14 minutes ago
The Jets are also hiring Rams scout Brian Heimerdinger to a prominent front-office role. St. Louis let him out of his deal.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:48 PM) Heimerdinger is our director of player personnel now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) That is Mike Heimerdinger's son who used to be our OC in 05
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) hopefully his son isn't as horrible as his pop was at play calling
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 PM) Everyone looks like a bad playcaller when you have no QB and have no talent
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:18 PM) When Heimerdinger was our OC it was when we had a ton of injuries on offense, were down to our 4th or 5th string QB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:42 PM) FIRE HOGAN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:42 PM) FIRE HEIMERDINGER
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:47 PM) STFU Harlem you are f***ing getting real annoying with this FIRE bullshit
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 09:13 PM) I thought you didn't pay attention to me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 09:14 PM) You aaaaaare the wind beneath my wiiiiiiiiiings
a1elbow2.0 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 09:33 PM) I wonder if any possible new members come here, see no new posts for days and these about box conversations and wonder how the f*** this site is operational
MikeGangGree... Icon : (25 January 2015 - 12:22 AM) Would u rather FIRE EVERYONE or SUCK FOR THE DUCK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 January 2015 - 05:20 PM) Looks like we are having a blizzard the next 2 days over here.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 January 2015 - 06:50 PM) My boss still said to come in lol
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 January 2015 - 06:50 PM) Possibility for midday dismissal though
Chadforpresi... Icon : (25 January 2015 - 09:52 PM) FIRE HARLEM
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (26 January 2015 - 01:11 AM) FIRE YOU
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 12:07 PM) FIRE NYJETSFAN.COM
azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 05:36 PM) this site has become dismal.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:47 PM) Thanks Obama.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:49 PM) But really for all of you complaining about the site. What is there to talk about? We have a new GM and HC that we don't know how good or bad they'll be yet. So there really isn't much to talk about with the draft still months away.
azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 09:59 PM) Even I can't blame Obama :drinks:
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) It could be worse
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) we could be Phinzrage
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:43 PM) We got nothing to talk about
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 09:43 AM) HIRE MR JET
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:17 AM) There are some good OGs available in FA, we have to sign one
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Willie Colon was rated as one of the worst in football last season. So was Winters. Oday shows promise
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Orlando Franklin, Mike Iupati, Clint Boling. Should sign one
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 12:34 PM) Franklin or Iupati would be great
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:46 PM) hey reg how did you make out in this storm?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:47 PM) we got slammed with snow but the wind didn't knock out our power so I made out pretty unscathed here in RI
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:14 PM) What sucks is that the NFL isn't going to throw the book at those CHEATS even though they may be found GUILTY
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 PM) This place is a GHOST TOWN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:24 AM) Nothing really to talk about in the offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:20 PM) Rex bashed Idzik in a interview today lol
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:21 PM) Says Woody didn't want to fire him but had to because of 4 wins. That Idzik had hidden agendas and a plan that never worked.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:26 PM) I expect FA is going to be busy for us, I think public pressure forces them to make a splash because Maccagnan has to prove hes no Idzik and lose out on most FAs. We also have a lot of holes and could fix some with signings

I've decided to not raise my son a Mets fan. I've been a fan of the Mets since the early 90s and I can honestly tell you that it has not been fun. The most joy I can remember having as a Mets fan was early this year following RA Dickey. To recap, in about two decades of following a team, the most joy I've ever had was rooting for an unconventional pitcher in an otherwise forgettable season. Yes, even in 2000 when we somehow scrapped and managed to get to the WS (with our entire outfield on DL), the joy was short lived as we were slammed headfirst into the tiled wall of the prison showers while the biggest nazi f*** around had his way with us. The worst part is, I don't see the Mets ever getting any better.

I'm aware of the dire consequences of my actions. Living in Brooklyn, there's a good chance my son will develop an affinity for the Yankees, because lets be honest, little kids are front runners. As much as I'd hate to have that shitty dark navy and white cumrag uniform in my house, it's better than rooting for the Mets. Unfortunately, it's too late for me so I'll fall on the blade of the dysfunctional bullshit I chose to follow. But not my boy. You're free. Enjoy your Augusts and Septembers.

PS He does have a Jets outfit already.

Kid is gonna follow you no matter what. What do you think is going to happen when you watch a Mets game? Valiant effort but I doubt it's going to stick.

Props on the Jets outfit. :trink39:

I became a Jets fan because of my dad. when I was younger I always saw him yelling and screaming at the TV so during 2nd grade i decided to go into his room and see finally what he screams at. I have been miserable ever since

As a die hard Mets fan, I only watch games up to the All Star break. After that, there's no point.

I don't know. I have been trying to get my son to be a Jets fan since birth. He has Jets pillows, Jerseys, Footballs etc... And he is still leaning to the Packers. Living in WI and having a packer fan wife and inlaws I seem to be loosing the battle. Good Luck

I think Packers and Wisconsin is that rare combination of sport nuttiness that will not be beat by anything. My ex-gfs family moved to Waukasha, WI when we were still together. None of her siblings were little (the youngest was like 10). They were BX Puerto Ricans full of NY pride. Jets and Yankees all day. Now? All I see is Packer and Badgers posts on their FBs. When we went out there, Packers is the only thing moving. I think Rodgers can *beep* in a napkin and a 20 man brawl would break out for who gets to eat it. It's a completely devoted fanbase the likes of which I've never seen. Maybe die-hard Celtic fans somewhere in meth-lab little towns in NE are like that, but the cheese heads love their Packers... no cool Jets slippers will ever sway them.

What you are all describing is Programing by the merchants of the World to have you and your succeeding genrations to buy all their Merchandise . you are what it is put in your Brain and the body follows what the brain thinks .
teach your Son right from wrong and he will go much further with good character no matter which logo he wears.
