azjetfan Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:09 PM) A good firing
azjetfan Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:09 PM) Fire Geno!
Mr_Jet Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:20 PM) Yes I highly recommend anybody looking to get into House of Cards to take a weekend to binge watch at least the first 2 seasons.
azjetfan Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:29 PM) I agree mr jet. The third was a little disappointing
azjetfan Icon : (10 June 2015 - 04:34 PM) Boss is what is what I am watching now. Not as good as house of cards but entertaining
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 03:53 PM) Eagles release absent Pro Bowl guard Mathis
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 03:54 PM) get it done big mac. instant upgrade at Guard for us
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) 33 years old.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) Im not against it but it would have to be a short term deal
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 - 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

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 : (Yesterday, 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:59 PM) I feel fast.

Jets 'backup' quarterback Tim Tebow spends more time on sideline, flanked by Sunday’s starter Greg McElroy (l.) and benched starter Mark Sanchez.Tim Tebow finally stood up for himself. After learning last week he wouldn’t start for the benched Mark Sanchez against the San Diego Chargers, he told his coaches not to put him in any Wildcat packages, according to a source.

Good for him.

The nice guy showed he no longer wanted to be a part of the Jets’ season-long ruse.

His star has fallen far and fast with the Jets. And not because he has underperformed, but rather because he has never been given a chance.

Tebow took his place on the sideline on Sunday to watch the underwhelming Greg McElroy get sacked 11 times in the Jets’ 27-17 loss to San Diego.

It should have been Tebow’s game to win or lose.

When Rex Ryan decided to activate all three quarterbacks without naming a backup for the game, Tebow became the NFL’s version of an innocent bystander.

Sanchez held the clipboard, charting plays tethered to offensive coordinator Tony Sparano’s side. Tebow spent most of the game stalking the sidelines with his hands in the warmer pouch hanging from his hips.

Ryan and Tebow strained credibility after the game, first the coach saying they had practiced all week using receiver Jeremy Kerley taking snaps out of the Wildcat because it added an element of surprise to the passing game. And then Tebow played good soldier, never mentioning that he had asked out, with his “team-first" comments.

“I was just trying to help the team any way I can," Tebow said.

How can he help the team standing on the sidelines?

“Try to be encouraging. Try to be a leader on the sidelines," Tebow said.

Jets fans should feel cheated. They’ve been hoodwinked again by an organization that has promised grandiose things and failed to deliver. And in the case of Tebow, they didn’t even try to deliver on those promises.

He was nothing more than a PSL patsy.

Those fans should be asking where they go to get their money back on this defective product that the Jets (6-9) have trotted out this season.

Tebow likely has figured out that the Jets are running a con game on everyone. He had to know that something wasn’t kosher when the Jets let him play with a rib injury, then used the same injury to bench him while McElroy leapfrogged him on the depth chart.

At least Sanchez has publicly voiced his dissatisfaction over being benched. Tebow wants to keep up the appearance of being a good solider, while behind the scenes he shows a backbone.

None of it mattered against the Chargers as the Jets offense was still mired in ineffectiveness. After watching Sanchez implode from a slew of turnovers, it seemed Ryan and Sparano sent McElroy into the Chargers game with a single mandate — hold on to the ball.

So McElroy took a beating for the cause. He had two turnovers along with those 11 sacks and was planted in the ground so much that you expect the QB to be sprouting from the MetLife turf in the spring.

Really, could Tebow have been any worse?

Fear has governed everything that the Jets have done with Tebow this season.

They were afraid of hurting Sanchez’s feelings by giving Tebow more snaps on offense. As the season unraveled they were afraid of putting him in a game and have him win it.

Then they would be stuck with him at quarterback like the Broncos last year. He led the Broncos to the playoffs last year, but Denver never believed he was suited for the position in the NFL – a passer’s league. The Jets didn’t believe he was the answer at QB either, even though they traded for him.

You could smell the fear coming from the Jets sidelines on Sunday.

What would have happened if Tebow had come into the game and led the Jets to a victory? They would have been obliged to let him start in Buffalo. Then what happens if he won there in the final, miserable game of the season?

The Jets don’t even want to think about that. The words you never heard Ryan utter about Tebow as a quarterback all season: He gives us the best chance to win.

He might have. But no one will ever know.

Even as their season slipped away, they never even wanted to see what Tebow could do under center.

It wasn’t a failed experiment, because the Jets never tried.

The Tim Tebow era with the Jets will officially come to a close next week in Buffalo. But Tebow pulled the plug on himself at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.

Wish he had stood up sooner and in public.

Apparently refusing to be used when you aren't being used anyway is having a backbone. Tebow-fans will spin anything into a positive for this guy. I don't know why he employs PR people, half the media would turn a triple murder by Tebow into a holy-miracle.

he should never had been brought in. his skill set if anything, was always complimentary to any team. to sell the idea that he can run a conventional offense in the pros is foolish. so why make him your no. 2 qb.?
he would do well on a team that is already loaded on offense as a change of pace option style play or plays.
the team would have an established qb who universally would be known as the starter by his play.
the jets never fit this mold.
sanchez stinks.
the offense was putrid.
sparano was never going to change his playbook to fit tebow as far as qb goes.
