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.

Chaos Icon : (30 July 2015 - 05:56 PM) God dammit Richardson. Jets need to pay Mo. Richardson is turning into a huge liability.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (30 July 2015 - 06:17 PM) good thing we drafted williams. thats why you take BPA
jets4life Icon : (30 July 2015 - 07:54 PM) Mike Freeman of the B/R has spoken to three NFL sources who all said they think Jets DE Sheldon Richardson Will Never Play Another Down In The Nfl following this arrest.

Freeman’s sources all pointed to the 12-year child and the loaded handgun in the car as two major concerns regarding the incident.
We’ll have more details regarding Richardson as the news is available.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (30 July 2015 - 08:44 PM) do we need to get rid of sheldon?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (30 July 2015 - 08:44 PM) wtf was he thinking driving 143 mph
azjetfan Icon : (30 July 2015 - 09:19 PM) My guess would be by the time he is done with all his suspensions he will not be under contract anymore.
azjetfan Icon : (30 July 2015 - 09:20 PM) The child and gun will do him in.
azjetfan Icon : (30 July 2015 - 09:20 PM) Was he charged with child endangerment?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 July 2015 - 10:53 PM) Why o why
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 07:29 AM) i think he was only charged with resisting arrest
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 07:29 AM) he isn't going anywhere. wife beaters get second chances and he won't?
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 07:29 AM) i'm sure he's going to be suspended for more than 4 games though
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:16 AM) Richardson is a moron
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:16 AM) Good thing we drafted Williams
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:17 AM) Makes the decision easier to pay Wilkerson, someone who knows how to not get into trouble off the field

New York Jets planned to use Tim Tebow as running back

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. The New York Jets had a vision of Tim Tebow being a versatile offensive player for them in 2012, and they surely tried to make it happen by lining him up at quarterback, H-back, personal punt protector and blocking back on shotgun passes.

There was one more spot they wanted to place Tebow but never got around to doing so: tailback.

The Jets had visions of lining up Tebow at running back in traditional sets when they acquired him via trade from the Denver Broncos last March, according to a person with knowledge of the team's plans at the time of the trade. The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the Jets didn't divulge that plan, said it involved more than the shotgun look and was intended to "give (Tebow) the ball and play at times just like (Shonn) Greene and (Bilal) Powell" were used.

Jets coach Rex Ryan mentioned using Tebow as a running back only once, and that was in late October when Powell was injured and backup running back Joe McKnight was dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Ryan said Tebow could get some looks in the backfield, though McKnight wound up playing that Sunday. Tebow never lined up at running back.

The Jets' original vision to use Tebow as a running back was for more than just an emergency situation. They believed Tebow could be an integral part of their game plans as a running back.

The first question this revelation raises is, why did it never occur? Ryan was the one talking up Tebow as the ultimate weapon who could play a variety of roles. Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano didn't make it happen. Sparano was fired Monday.

The other question, then, is whether this means Tebow is definitely on his way out, as many have anticipated. The Jets will hire a new offensive coordinator and are in the process of hiring a new general manager. It's unclear at this point what those two men will think about the possibility of trying to hold on to Tebow and expanding his role to, among other things, running back.
