azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:20 PM) Williams the WR from Clemson looks like they are out to get him. He has taken some huge hits
vjdbbq Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:12 AM) We'll take Williams in the first round .
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 10:48 AM) I'd love Howard in the 2nd round if he's still there. I like Williams a lot as well, but I just don't see WR being big enough of a need, and there should be better talent on the board at 6
Jetsfan115 Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:21 PM) Raiders OC Musgrave not expected to return to OAK. what do you think about getting him? he did wonders with the oakland offense this year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:39 PM) Definitely an appealing choice given with his history of progressing Carr. We need someone with a track record of grooming young QBs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (12 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) I want Watson now! after what he did Monday night I'm sold on him at QB. He moved the ball all night on Alabama and after hurts scored that TD he just told his team "Lets end this"
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:31 PM) An Ohio prosecutor says he wants to know what punishment Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones faces from the NFL before deciding how to proceed over Jones' latest arrest, Dan Sewell of the Associated Press reports..

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WKRC-TV he's asking "what is the normal" for a player with multiple offenses and who's been suspended before.

An NFL spokesman said on Thursday that Jones' case is "under review" and declined to comment further.

Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. Authorities say he was so combative he had to be placed in a restraint chair.

Jones says he anticipates the charges will be dismissed.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:32 PM) we wont get watson. he's going 1st overall to the browns
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:06 PM) Is Watson a product of Clemson's staff and supporting cast? Taj Boyd also put up some decent numbers if I remember correctly but he couldn't even make a scout team in the NFL.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) From what I have read (although limited) he is not the highest ranked QB in the draft.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) "No quarterback in this draft -- not Mitch Trubisky, not Watson, not DeShone Kizer -- is considered a sure thing. The folks at Scouts Inc. rank Trubisky, Watson and Kizer as the 21st, 38th and 46th prospects on their big board, respectively." ESPN
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:12 PM) If we can get a decent return for Richardson we may be able to make a move into the mid teens to early 20s if the Brass really likes Watson.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:13 PM) Personally I don't think the jets have a clue on who they will take. We still have to hit FA and manage our roster
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 11:46 PM) Jets to interview Broncos assistant Studesville for OC
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:28 PM) Why? seems like a weird choice
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:29 PM) Leonard Williams replacing Khalil Mack in Pro Bowl
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm not buying Watson, even after that championship game. Dude threw too many picks in his day
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm really curious to see what we get for Richardson, but I have a bad feeling his value is at an all time low between his crap season and bad attitude
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 12:16 AM) I agree. He is a first round talent but a fourth round headache. We will be lucky to get a 2nd
Chadforpresi... Icon : (14 January 2017 - 08:41 AM) Yeah precisely. 2nd rounder would be a huge stretch. 3rd or 4th is more likely
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:51 PM) Seems like a slightly steep price but overall cool with it, he's turned into a good player and is still young. Just needs to stay healthy.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 January 2017 - 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?

We had this conversation in the shout box a while back. Why hire a guy who will be here for a season and then leave the team in the hands of someone that the ownership didn't hire? Like we saw with the Schottenheimers, son does not equal father. I don't want to replace Tanny for the sake of replacing him. Why not bring Bradshaw back at that point? I want the Jets to hire a true evaluator of talent. Papa Polian has an established history, what does his son have? Three years of experience with the Colts that resulted in him getting fired after a 2-14 season? Here are the drafts he's had:

2009: http://www.profootba...olis-colts.html
2010: http://www.profootba...olis-colts.html
2011: http://www.profootba...olis-colts.html

I rather get a guy with experience, not a name.

If Woody Johnson were to hire Bill Polian I'm sure knowing what happened in Indy he (Woody) would make it clear how long Bill would have to stay with the team. And if Bill were really looking to get his son a job, he'd agree to Woody's terms however long he (Bill) would have to stay. Remember it's Woody's team at the end of the day. If Woody wants Bill and not Chris than that's the way it will be or Bill won't come at all. But if Woody is willing to accept Bill for 3 or 4 years and then let Bill hand off the reigns to his son, than that would be Woody's decision. Just like it was Irsay's decision. The buck stops with Woody. And as I said in the shoutbox even if that were the case, we do not know that Chris Polian would be a bad GM. He wasn't in charge in Indy long enough to make that determination. And really are you going to blame Chris Polian for the Colts 2-14 record when Peyton Manning spent the entire season injured? Come on.

You talk about the Schottenheimers but they're not different. Neither of them could get to the Super Bowl and they were both extremely conservative in crucial games or crucial moments. So that's one case of the son being like the father. But in reality the Schottenheimers or the Ryans or the Rooneys or the Irsays, nothing they've done or haven't done has anything to do with picking the right players on this team going forward. If Chris Polian were to eventually become the GM of this team he has shown no indication that he'd be a bad GM. Is this more fear of the unknown or rather fear that because one father and son tandem didn't work out in NFL history (Marty and Brian) then that must mean all father and son tandems are doomed? I'm not going to be afraid of the Polians because of something the Schottenheimers did or didn't do. Different people, different situations. Only thing they have in common are they are both a set of father and son who worked in the NFL.

P.S.
Plus the only reason the Polians were able to do that in Indy was because the Colts were contenders every year. If under Bill Polian the Jets were not contenders after 2 or 3 years, I really doubt Woody would let Bill hand the reigns to his son. They'd both be gone. It was Indy's years of success that made it possible for Irsay to go along with Bill handing it off to his son.

Not wanting Bill Polian is laughable, no matter your reason.

I'm a Rex Ryan fan. I think that 15 years ago, he'd be a Top 5 HC. His style and his defensive expertise are top notch. Unfortunately, he's coaching in the wrong era. The three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust offense that he wants to run are a relic in the NFL. If you look at the teams who won playoff games last season, you'll see every single one being coached by a guy who cut his teeth on the offensive side of the ball (with the exception of John Fox). Is this a coincidence? I doubt it. We are in the era of the QB and the spread offense. Not only is Ryan a poor fit in that sense, it's also painfully clear that he's lost this team (again). Given Woody's traditional short leash on coaches, I'd be shocked if Rex is here in 2013. He'll be fired the Monday after the last game just like Mangini was.


Ryan's problem isn't his preference for running the ball. When the Jets have run the ball well, they've played well. Solid defense and ball control through pounding the ball are still viable. It might not be the greatest strategy, but it obviously can work since that is what got us to two AFC Championship games (also, look at team's like the Ravens who play better when Rice is the focus and not Flacco).

Ryan's problem is he believes the league is still a play-with-your-heart league. You win games in the NFL using your mind. The Jets are never prepared, so they always fall behind immediately and lose.

Bill Polian is approaching 70. He has been in NFL management capacity from 1986 until he was fired in 2011. He has spent 25 years of his life doing this and has won the Super Bowl twice and been there six/seven times. I am not here to decide what he does with his life or how long he continues, but I do not want to hire someone as a temp. I want a GM that is here to do the job and I want someone who has time to implement his vision. Bill was President of the Colts association and hired his son to be GM from 2009 onwards. I do not know what level of control each individual had, but the fact that his son was GM for three years leads me to think that he was handing off the reins to his son and bowing out. I want a guy who is here to do the job, bring in talent and establish something. I'm not sure hiring Bill Polian would be doing that.

It is a fear of the unknown. I understand that Chris may turn out to be a great GM but I rather the Jets sign a guy with some sort of tangible track record, not a guy whose mistakes could be masked by one of the greatest QBs to play the game. I don't think Bill will be here for the long haul. He may have the resume but if he's not going to stay, what's the point? Jets need a long term fix with continuity, not a guy to right the ship a little bit and then head off. What happens if Bill fixes the ship within a year or two and then Woody agrees to hand it off to his son? No track record and we're back to square one hoping he continues what his father established. Would you be okay with hiring Chris Polian this offseason with no Bill Polian coming with him?

70 years old is not ancient. Ronald Reagan was 69 when he became president. If Bill Polian were the GM for 4 or 5 years that should be enough time to build a championship contender. If it is taking more than 4 to 5 years to build a championship contending team then Woody should let Bill Polian go and Chris Polian wouldn't even get a chance to takeover. And if it's fear of the unknown then nobody new would get a chance. Nobody would be able to work there way up the ladder. New blood has to get a chance at some point. We can't have Bill Polian still in the GM's chair when he's 85. Now that would be too old. At some point Bill Polian would have to step down and in this day and age how likely is it that a GM of any team at any age would stay with one team more than 10 years anyway. Plus there is no evidence that Woody would even go along with something like that. If Woody were to let something like what you think would happen to happen, that decision would have to be based off of Colts like results. If Bill Polian in 4 years were able to build a championship contending team like the Colts were for the better part of the last decade, if he were able to luck up on getting the "elite QB" that so many folks around here are salivating for. Then yes I would be willing to support Bill handing off his duties to his son at that point if he wanted to retire again. Like I've said before Chris Polian has shown no indication that he'd do a bad job. He's learned from one of the best and his dad even in retirement would still be an unofficial adviser. He'd only be a phone call away. But if I were Woody I wouldn't deny myself of the opportunity of hiring a great GM with a proven track record just because in a few years he might want to hand off his duties to his son. Chris Polian for all we know could be better than his father just as easily as he could be worse than his father. Sometimes you have to take a chance on the unknown.

<br />Sean Payton won't come here. The #1 guy I want is Bill Cowher, he demands respect. I don't believe in there is only one way to win a SB, we got damn close to a SB without a elite QB. The problem is that we suck at running the ball and aren't good on defense either. You don't think Cowher would adjust to a elite QB? He did adjust with Big Ben during that one playoff run and won a SB. The problem is, you have to have a elite QB to be successful throwing it all of the time. The great coaches know how to win without a great QB. I think Cowher would have won another SB or 2 if he kept on coaching, he finally had a great QB. When you have a inconsistent QB running the ball is the best way to cut down on their mistakes that kill you. <br /><br />I rather not hire another rookie HC, that is all Woody Johnson has ever done.<br />


Bill Cowher would have never won anything if he came here, he would have been tossed out after 1 bad season. It took Cowher 15 years to win a SB, no one in the NY area has that kind of patience.

The Jets went to the Championship game twice with Rex and now when there's a bad season the media/fans are ready to toss him to the curb. Do you think Cowher would want to leave his cushy job to come here and put up with that? I doubt it. Jets fans are their own worst enemy.

70 years old is not ancient. Ronald Reagan was 69 when he became president. If Bill Polian were the GM for 4 or 5 years that should be enough time to build a championship contender. If it is taking more than 4 to 5 years to build a championship contending team then Woody should let Bill Polian go and Chris Polian wouldn't even get a chance to takeover. And if it's fear of the unknown then nobody new would get a chance. Nobody would be able to work there way up the ladder. New blood has to get a chance at some point. We can't have Bill Polian still in the GM's chair when he's 85. Now that would be too old. At some point Bill Polian would have to step down and in this day and age how likely is it that a GM of any team at any age would stay with one team more than 10 years anyway. Plus there is no evidence that Woody would even go along with something like that. If Woody were to let something like what you think would happen to happen, that decision would have to be based off of Colts like results. If Bill Polian in 4 years were able to build a championship contending team like the Colts were for the better part of the last decade, if he were able to luck up on getting the "elite QB" that so many folks around here are salivating for. Then yes I would be willing to support Bill handing off his duties to his son at that point if he wanted to retire again. Like I've said before Chris Polian has shown no indication that he'd do a bad job. He's learned from one of the best and his dad even in retirement would still be an unofficial adviser. He'd only be a phone call away. But if I were Woody I wouldn't deny myself of the opportunity of hiring a great GM with a proven track record just because in a few years he might want to hand off his duties to his son. Chris Polian for all we know could be better than his father just as easily as he could be worse than his father. Sometimes you have to take a chance on the unknown.


Couldn't have said it better myself.
