Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:13 PM) SIGN WILL HILL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 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.

By all sane accounts, New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is done for the season, and everyone is acting a little funny in New York. Joe McKnight is playing cornerback and isn't particularly happy about it. New starter Kyle Wilson didn't want to talk to the media.

And Antonio Cromartie is ready to take over the mantle as the No. 1 guy -- in the entire NFL.

Cromartie told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that he's now the best cornerback in the NFL. Cromartie says he's better than Nnamdi Asomugha, just like he was better than Asomugha two years ago.

"I have said that I'm the second-best corner in the NFL," Cromartie said. "I'm not backing off what I said. I don't care what anyone else believes. ... It's my confidence in myself. I know what I'm capable of when I'm at the top of my game.

"This is Revis' team. He's been a consistent corner every single year. I haven't been.

Some self-awareness showed up there, just at the end. Cromartie isn't always a willing tackler, and his play has been uneven in New York. With that said, he's mostly been a quality starter while opposite Revis. The Jets gambled on Cromartie, and it paid off.

He's not the No. 2 cornerback in the league, but you could argue he's in the top 10.

Cromartie is good at getting himself in good position to make plays.

He is beyond awful at actually making those plays. He is good at committing penalties, though.

Where is a media boycott when you need it?

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

Back it up, I have no problem with him having confidence though. CB is a position where confidence is key.

The best corner in the league outside of Revis and the best receiver on the team. No doubt Cro's also the best father in the world, according to himself.
