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 ?

Jets Explore Potential Gms, Look To Keep Tannenbaum In Cap Role

The Jets are reaching out to potential GM candidates, while exploring ways to keep current GM Mike Tannenbaum in a cap management role, according to league sources.

The Jets are trying to beef up their front office, particularly in personnel, given their failing in the draft and free agency in recent years. But owner Woody Johnson is looking for a way to keep Tannenbaum in a different capacity, primarily as a negotiator/cap guy, sources said. The team has quietly reached out to potential candidates to gauge interest in the bizarre arrangement, including approaching Mike Maccagnan, Houston's director of college scouting.

As expected, candidates have significant issues with the parameters, sources said. Tannenbaum has created many of the Jets issues with bloated contracts given to players like Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes, to name two, coupled with cap mismanagement that has left New York in a difficult plight heading into 2013. Furthermore, Tannenbaum has shared a very close relationship with Johnson, which naturally would be a red flag for someone joining the Jets from the outside.

Several potential GM candidates -- men expected to garner interviews for soon-to-be-open general manager jobs -- said they would never consider taking the Jets job under these circumstances and doubted that any strong candidate would.

"That's totally ridiculous," one exec said. "Only the Jets."

In the end, Johnson may have to bite the bullet and part with Tannenbaum in order to land a someone highly qualified for the position.


That would suck if we lose out on a quality GM because Woody Johnson won't get rid of Tannenbaum completely...

if that happens than i'm totally giving up on the team for the 2013 season. Rex is one problem, but to keep f***ing Tannenbaum, nothing will get done, and this team will just get f***ing worse.

i still don't get what MT did so wrong that everyone hates him?
He significantly improved this team. without him landing BE and holmes on the the cheap and cro we would have never made 2 AFC champ games back to back. His draftes have been decent and coples and wilk are looking to be studs which would make his drafts great. He kept most of our good players like harris, mangold, brick, etc
Tha sanchez thing was a no choice move. What else could he really do?

He could have not felt the need to make up for flirting with the best qb of all time...

The fact that they have no young depth at any single position debunks the theory that he has had good drafts. Hitting on first and second rounders does not make a good drafter (and even there he has Gholston, Sanchez, Kyle Wilson, Ducasse, Clemens on his resume). GMs build teams through the later rounds. What has he done to build this team in the later rounds? Kerley? Powell? Slauson? Leon Washington and Brad Smith were good novelty players... Big deal.

He's traded away several picks to move up for players, which directly relates to their lack of depth. He made 4 picks in 2007 and 2010, and 3 in 2009. He made 6 picks in 2008 and only Keller is even on the team still. They have quite possibly the worst collection of offensive talent in the league and you don't understand why everyone wants him out?

And need I remind you that in a year where they need to start rebuilding at countless positions, they pissed away a 4th and 6th rounder for Tebow. Good teams are built through the draft and that is something MT has failed to do. But hey, at least they took a WR who can't catch the ball in the second round last year.

Theres a reason this team got old and bad, fast.

happy? no but very few teams could lose as many players as we did and still win. no keller, no holmes, no revis etc. mark had a thin WR core and lost his best one, and on D we were built around revis. he was the 1 player we couldn't afford to lose and we did.

a make-up? or maybe realizing that w/o manning there were no other options and he couldn't afford to let mark walk. if we didn't extend him and he had a monster season (he was progressing up until this year) and he walked to another team like miami or cleveland etc everyone would have hated MT even more for letting "the only good QB we had since namath" to walk. It was a good bet to take but eveyrthing went wrong this year. Gholson was a rex pick, wilson has been very good as is Q and wilk, ducasse was a bad pick but you can't hit on every one, clemens was before his time i'm pretty sure of. and all thos elate round picks you listed turned out to be great vlaue for their draft posiiton. and he traded up for revis that was a great deal, he traded up for keller and that turned out very good too. he needed a QB so he traded up for mark. we got a huge bargain to move up that far. it was a great trade and a no brainer. mark was what we needed at the time. He also got holmes for a 5th and BE for 2 trash players and 2 later picks. those moves helped us make teh AFc champ game twice in a row. Its funny how eveyrone ignores all the good stuff over a bad move or two. he isn't batting 1000 but hey if he's batting over 500 i can't complain. tebow was a bad move made by pressure form woddy (to sell PSls and jerseys) and Sparano (wildcat ground and pound) you cna't put all taht on MT

Mark wasn't going anywhere. He was under contract after this year... All they did was give him more guaranteed money in 2013 so it would be devastating to cut him if he sucked in 2012. Which is exactly what happened.

Rex wasn't here when they took Gholston. Clemens was absolutely MT. Kyle Wilson has turned out to be garbage for a first rounder... I have no idea how you can claim him to be very good, that's just laughable. Like I said, hitting first round picks should be a given for a good GM and he doesn't deserve to be kept for hitting on over 50% of those. That's ridiculous. For all intents and purposes he failed on Gholston (one of the more epic busts of all time), Sanchez, Wilson and I'd even throw Keller in there. Sure he's a good enough tight end but he cant block and is not the type of impact tight end that warrants a first round pick. And he was another one they traded up for.

You say the late round players I listed provided good value? I say I listed five names... So in 6-7 years of drafting, he found 5 serviceable players in the later rounds? And two aren't even here? That's got to be one of the most abysmal draft records in the league. Maybe it would have been better if he didn't trade away half his picks.

Trading up for Revis was great, but continuing to trade up for players and throw away additional draft picks for veterans has crippled this team. He sold the future to try and win a title and it didn't work and now the team is paying the price. So now he has to pay the price. It's not very complicated.

Look at the Colts. They built an entire new offense with one draft class. I realize Luck is a once in a decade prospect, so ignore him and look at everyone else... They drafted a new starting running back, two starting caliber tight ends, and at least two contributing receivers. Look at the Seahawks. There must have been 5 or 6 rookies who played big roles in their beat down of the Niners on Sunday night.

To be successful in this league, you need a GM who can reload with talent in the draft. The current Jets GM has proven he can't do that.

get rid of all these bums, tanny, bradway, front office scouting dept, etc.a new gm needs his guys.
the only guy that i would think could stay in a lesser role is rex. to keep the defense from major change.
but this isn't reality, because a new gm wants his crew.
furthermore rex would probably be insulted if even asked to remain as d.c.

Who wrote this article? Who were the candidates who said this? There is no doubt Tanny needs help or even demoted , but this article is bush league jornalism at best. Reminds me of the insurance commercial with the girl who said if its on the internet it has to be true because its on the internet.

I have to side with 115 on this one

Tanny hasnt been great
But it seems like every year the blame train just goes after the next name. Last year it was shotty this year its tanny next will be rex Etc.

Bottom line is sanchez has not panned out. The problem could of been with talent or depth or everything happening around the team.
I'm all for gutting the frontoffice and bringing someone with extensive experience.

Tanny hasn't been terrible to the jets but see him replaced by polian or something would deff lighten the mood about the jets.

What planet are you on in which you watched Mark Sanchez last year and could call it progression? He CLEARLY regressed last year. And even furthermore this year. Seriously do you just make shit up as you go along? Kyle Wilson has been a bust and a waste of a pick.

Tannenbuam hasn't done enough through the draft. We aren't getting enough production from younger players and we don't have depth, he filled the WRs position with trash and hasn't ever gotten a real #1 RB. Also he has ignored OLB on defense, our LBs got old fast this season.

Does it bother anyone else that the old GM we "fired" is still the chief of scouting? All the busts we drafted, guess who signed off on them first? Terry Bradway. Ultimately, the elephant in the room is that we root for a team that's basically owned by a Paris Hiltonesque fan who has no experience running a company.

Does it bother anyone else that the old GM we "fired" is still the chief of scouting? All the busts we drafted, guess who signed off on them first? Terry Bradway. Ultimately, the elephant in the room is that we root for a team that's basically owned by a Paris Hiltonesque fan who has no experience running a company.



I guess, but he was also responsible for this team drafting Revis. So at least he has that going for himself.

happy? no but very few teams could lose as many players as we did and still win. no keller, no holmes, no revis etc. mark had a thin WR core and lost his best one, and on D we were built around revis. he was the 1 player we couldn't afford to lose and we did.




a make-up? or maybe realizing that w/o manning there were no other options and he couldn't afford to let mark walk. if we didn't extend him and he had a monster season (he was progressing up until this year) and he walked to another team like miami or cleveland etc everyone would have hated MT even more for letting "the only good QB we had since namath" to walk. It was a good bet to take but eveyrthing went wrong this year. Gholson was a rex pick, wilson has been very good as is Q and wilk, ducasse was a bad pick but you can't hit on every one, clemens was before his time i'm pretty sure of. and all thos elate round picks you listed turned out to be great vlaue for their draft posiiton. and he traded up for revis that was a great deal, he traded up for keller and that turned out very good too. he needed a QB so he traded up for mark. we got a huge bargain to move up that far. it was a great trade and a no brainer. mark was what we needed at the time. He also got holmes for a 5th and BE for 2 trash players and 2 later picks. those moves helped us make teh AFc champ game twice in a row. Its funny how eveyrone ignores all the good stuff over a bad move or two. he isn't batting 1000 but hey if he's batting over 500 i can't complain. tebow was a bad move made by pressure form woddy (to sell PSls and jerseys) and Sparano (wildcat ground and pound) you cna't put all taht on MT

No, you can't put it all on Tannenbaum but he obviously got very complacent. Even with losing the amount of players the Jets did, there is NO reason for the team to be paper thin how they are. In all honesty, i would go as far to say the 2012 New York Jets are one of the worst assembled teams in the history of sports
