OFF SEASON ALMOST OVER AUG 13 VS LIONS
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:37 PM) rumor has it he wanted a raise over his $5.5 million base this year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:39 PM) 33 is young for a guard. he's got at least 3-4 more years in him
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Mmmmm I disagree.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) I would go 2 year deal.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 June 2015 - 10:40 PM) TEH WARRIORS
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE BURKE
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 June 2015 - 06:27 PM) THE A-ROD!!
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:19 PM) god damn week no activity in here
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (29 June 2015 - 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 June 2015 - 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (29 June 2015 - 08:59 PM) I feel fast.
azjetfan Icon : (01 July 2015 - 07:53 PM) Shot an 86 today. Personal best.
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) well done
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) im going to play friday
blk_orion Icon : (02 July 2015 - 08:57 AM) play what? golf?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) Sheldon Richardson suspended 4 game for substance abuse.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) f***
ganggreen2003 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 06:15 PM) DAMNIT TO f***ing HELL!!!!
azjetfan Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:46 PM) Yup. Golf. I'm ready to take on Tiger. Mid season form. For what ever reason I am hitting the driver great. 280 and fairly controlled. I'm playing again Saturday.
santana Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:55 PM) tiger shot a 66 today didnt he easy course though
santana Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:55 PM) things were going too well for the jets this off season
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 July 2015 - 10:33 PM) Well I guess Williams will be starting in opening day now

We lose a CB so we sign a RB. Yeah.....that makes sense.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

@Steiny31 Tanny put a conditional waiver claim on Grimes in late August. He withdrew it when 3 of his other higher-priority claims were successful.

Makes perfect sense to me and most Jets fans.

Have you looked at the Greene`s ypc????

Now we are trying Powell out because obviously Greene isn't good enough and neither is Mcknight or he would be running the ball not just on special teams teams and now being looked at to help at corner.

We need a legitimate starter which Powell probably isn't either. Is Grimes???? Probably not but Andre Brown is an example of rb`s waived multiple times that looked good in a game when given a chance.Arian Foster was a practice squad player and look at him now

Bottom line we need a rb. Just because they haven't found a replacement starting corner yet doesn't mean they aren't looking.First though you have to give the guys already on the roster unless a legit starting corner miraculously falls in your lap out of nowhere.

The rb problem has been a problem a lot longer.

The Giants and Texans have a history or getting more out of less talent. The Jets have a history of poo offensive talent assessment. I don't have much faith in our new RB or our new "cb".

Exterminate all rational thought, that is the conclusion I have come to

The Giants and Texans have invested heavily into the DLs and skills positions on the offense. The Giants especially have drafted a WR in either the 1st, 2nd ot 3rd round 7 times since the year after they drafted Eli. That's 1 a year average. When you surround your QB with weapons, suddenly that opens up the running game. On the other side of the ball, if you hit the opposing QB, you win. It's not rocket science.

I want Grimes on the field Monday night. The Jets need fresh legs and a back that can decisively hit a crease. I don't want to hear about pass blocking. Get him on the field NOW.

The giants always take a WR in the top 3 rounds every year since they drafted eli

2006 2nd round sinorice moss
2007 2nd round steve smith
2008 3rd round mario manningham
2009 1st round hakeen nicks 3rd round ramses barden
2010 none but they did luck out with vicor cruz as an UDFA who went beast mode a year later
2011 3rd round jerrell jerningan
2012 2nd round rueben randel

so they've drafted 7 WRs in the top 3 rounds in the 7 years eli has been the starter plus lucked out with cruz.

In all fairness though moss sucked, smith had 1 good year due to the system but was never good, manningham mad a few nice catches but overall has been below average, nicks is a sutd, barden is a bust, cruz is a beast, jenrigan and randel are too young to judge

still even though they only hit big with 1 of the picks and 1 UDFA it gave him weapons despite 80% of them not working out. he has weapons. in contrast we have drafted hill in the 2nd round this year and thats it in the top 3 rounds in that time span. Eli also has had the same OC his entire career. that means alot
