MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 November 2015 - 11:42 PM) Report is mangold has a severe cut on his hand
ROBJETS Icon : (23 November 2015 - 02:12 AM) Jets playoff hopes are seriously on the edge of going down the drain with all the close records, tie breakers and better division win %.Steelers and Chiefs are prime for the 2 wild card spots. Jets pretty much need to run the table at this point for even a shot at a wildcard.
ROBJETS Icon : (23 November 2015 - 02:14 AM) Sucks big time after the season started so promising. 4-1 to total implosion. It sucks even more because we are so used to it we expect it every year now.

ROBJETS Icon : (23 November 2015 - 05:39 PM) vjdbbq you have some serious metal and IQ issues. Why dont you go back to your old ways of never posting when you had only 5 or 6 posts since your join date in 07.
ROBJETS Icon : (23 November 2015 - 05:39 PM) mental
ROBJETS Icon : (23 November 2015 - 05:49 PM) Thanks for the news MGG. If the FO didn't try to shop him before the trade deadline it was stupid because releasing him now they get nothing. Maybe no one would've traded but if so even a 6th or 7th round draft pick or someone the team might be able to use would've been better than nothing
ROBJETS Icon : (23 November 2015 - 05:51 PM) He sucked this year but did have a career best 6.5 sacks in 2014 so a team change might work out for him.
azjetfan Icon : (23 November 2015 - 07:36 PM) Couples will land on the Bills when Rex grabs him off waivers
azjetfan Icon : (23 November 2015 - 07:37 PM) in the mean time does anyone think we would have a better record under Rex with this same team?
ROBJETS Icon : (23 November 2015 - 07:53 PM) Couples....it wouldn't surprise me and .....with Rex its hard to tell. His defensive scheming may be the best in football but this team has had a lot of injuries on both sides of the ball which has absolutely cost the team at least 3 games ......so as far as better record. it would be simply an opinion. Bowles has done a good job so I have no problems with him other than time out usage. That said I feel rex got a bad rap because he never had a qb even on Fitz caliber and Fitz is just average. But that is in the past so no sense even debating about it now. Rex is with a new team and we finally have a qb who doesn't completely suck. Still wish we had a true high level franchise qb though.
azjetfan Icon : (23 November 2015 - 09:34 PM) Watching the game and I am finding myself yelling at the bills offensive playcalling
azjetfan Icon : (23 November 2015 - 09:34 PM) Just stipupidity
azjetfan Icon : (23 November 2015 - 09:35 PM) run the ball every time on first and second with zero sucess
azjetfan Icon : (23 November 2015 - 09:36 PM) Out D is no where near as good as it should be under Bowles. I'm not sure why. I guess it's easy to blame Bowles but the bend and don't break philosophy isn't working
azjetfan Icon : (23 November 2015 - 09:39 PM) They should ban that pick play.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (23 November 2015 - 11:54 PM) As bad as we have played lately we are still a better coached team without Rex. Rex still has no clue how to manage the clock
MikeGangGree... Icon : (24 November 2015 - 12:03 AM) See. Can't manage the clock
vjdbbq Icon : (24 November 2015 - 08:05 AM) Hello Rob
vjdbbq Icon : (24 November 2015 - 08:06 AM) They cut coples to save money in case he got hurt practicing since he hardly played ; a business move .
Jetsfan115 Icon : (24 November 2015 - 12:58 PM) our D was better with shit CBs last year. rex is just better at calling a defense then bowles
Jetsfan115 Icon : (24 November 2015 - 12:58 PM) hopefully milliner comes back. where has mcdougle been? revis hurt and cro hurt
Jetsfan115 Icon : (25 November 2015 - 02:37 PM) coples picked up by miami. we play him on sunday now lol
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 November 2015 - 05:08 PM) We need a real edge rusher
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 November 2015 - 05:08 PM) We are gonna trade Richardson or Wilkerson after this season, hopefully we can then get a edge rusher to compliment them
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 November 2015 - 05:10 PM) I never wanted the Jets to draft Coples, he was clearly going to be a bust
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 November 2015 - 05:10 PM) hes not athletic enough for OLB either, doesn't have enough fluidity in the hips. He can be a decent player, but he needs to be a interior pass rusher
vjdbbq Icon : (26 November 2015 - 07:45 AM) Happy Thanksgiving to Rob !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
vjdbbq Icon : (26 November 2015 - 07:45 AM) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 November 2015 - 11:18 PM) Hope everyone had a good thanksgiving
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:50 PM) Why does this site have all these crazy people?
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 08:02 AM) Revix
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 08:04 AM) Revis out week 12 vs. Fish .......concussion .....per bleacher report
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 08:07 AM) I hear you AZ but this is the Internet. Nutty people on pretty much every site, mouthy kids, and tough people on the net but not in real life.......just try to ignore them. I'm doing my best to. That said no one is perfect. We all have our issues like me with essays....lol
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:33 AM) Hello AZ
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 08:34 AM) We are the sane ones ; you guys are crazy !!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
vjdbbq Icon : (Today, 12:18 PM) Why is Matt Snell pissed at the Jets ?

Nobody wants to be the general manager of the New York Jets. This is weird.

"They can't give the position away," Fox Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer reported Sunday. "They are now calling back candidates that turned them down, saying please reconsider."

The Jets come off like the pimply-faced teen unwilling to take no for an answer in their doomed search for a prom date. Calling candidates back and asking them to reconsider? That's a pungent whiff of desperation right there.

(We'll now give Jets fans the appropriate time to digest just how close you were to the Super Bowl two short years ago. Take however long you need. We'll be here.)

Though we didn't feel this sort of thing needed to be pointed out, it's intrinsically insane that a GM job in the NFL would be ignored. After all, there are only 32 of these gigs on the planet. Many a loyal team employee has gone to the grave without reaching the top rung of professional football's personnel ladder.

You can make the argument that the Jets' job is the best on the market right now. Seriously. Here's why:

Rex Ryan is not a problem: Yes, you're stuck with him next year, but you'll have every right to kick him out the door if the team stumbles again. He's a built-in mulligan. And who knows, you might even learn to love the big galoot.

Woody Johnson is not a problem: The Johnson era has been marked by some obvious grabs at the spotlight, but he doesn't strike us a man unable to listen to reason. Make good decisions and deliver results and even the most meddlesome of owners will back off.

You can manage with Mark Sanchez for now: Like Ryan, you're only handcuffed to Sanchez for one year. Then again, is having Sanchez on the roster such a bad thing? Think about it: Say you select a QB early in the draft. Sanchez allows you the option to ease your hypothetical rookie hotshot into the lineup. If Sanchez somehow manages to turn his career around, great, maybe he has some trade value after all. If not, the future becomes now.

There are some pieces on this roster: Darrelle Revis needs to get healthy (not to mention paid), but don't be surprised when the training camp stories surface about the star cornerback looking better than ever. Nick Mangold is a top-shelf center in his prime. Antonio Cromartie and David Harris are quality pieces to the puzzle. This is a roster that needs plenty of work, but let's not pretend an incoming GM is inheriting the 2008 Lions.

It's never too soon to think about next season. Michael Fabiano and NFL.com's fantasy crew unveil their first mock draft of 2013. More ...

Salary-cap hell is more like purgatory: ESPN reported the Jets are currently $19.4 million over the salary cap, the worst such figure in the league. But that instantly shrinks to $8.3 million when the team says goodbye to Bart Scott, Jason Smith and Calvin Pace, according to the New York Daily News. Yes we can!

The bar for success remains shockingly low: The Jets haven't appeared in the Super Bowl since 1969. They're 0-4 in AFC Championship Games. They have exactly two AFC East titles in their history. If you can build a culture of winning, you're the second coming. Which reminds us ...

There's no better place to win than New York: It's cliche but true. New York's a city and region that loves and remembers its winners. Bring the Lombardi back to Gang Green and you're practically knighted. You'll also never pay for another wing at the Hooters in East Rutherford, so there's that.
