santana Icon : (Yesterday, 05:34 PM) I have elevator video of you giving out high fives
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:03 PM) Thank you for the warm words GG. I appreciate the thought!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:04 PM) any of u guys know how to size a NBA jersey?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:05 PM) Like im a XL so when I get a NFL jersey I get a L
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:05 PM) Im getting it for a friend
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:13 PM) SIGN WILL HILL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) There are some decent FAs I hope we go after, we have like $48 mil in cap space, plus more once we get rid of Chris Johnson and Calvin Pace.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) Lol for someone who doesn't like me and doesn't pay attention to what I have to say, GG sure loves talking about me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 PM) We just need a QB to throw to them
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:25 PM) if we release Harvin, we won't get him back most likely. Hes the most dynamic offensive player we have had in a while.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) Plus he has no guaranteed money so we can release him at any time for no cap hits. Maybe they can rework his contract, but I hope we keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) I think he does restructure though, can't imagine Brick wanting to play elsewhere. I see him as a career Jet
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) I think that Oday would be fine as a starter for one spot, he showed promise. Plus it would be a competition between Oday, Winters, and Dozier.

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.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

@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
Get it done MT
