Jetsman05 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 06:08 PM) 115 and Hill. Lol!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) the excuses, Hill is just a terrible football player. no debate, just a fact. guy is soft as shit as well
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:43 AM) right cause all our other WRs were lighting it up
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 07:04 PM) Hill is useless bro lol
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:05 PM) All I can say I streamed this game and if anyone thinks about recording it from NFL Network at 4pm Eastern Saturday.....DONT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:07 PM) This game was pure sh1t. Even though it was back up players the Jets got totally destroyed in this game. After seeing this game Im really worried about the Jets starting core because these backup guys looked like they shouldn't have even been on the field at all. I just hope the starters are 3000 times better than these guys that played in game 4
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:09 PM) The Jets got horse f*cked by the Eagles in this game.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:24 PM) we are hosed in the secondary
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:26 PM) we need to cut this assclown patterson
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:34 PM) did Hill get cut yet?
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) lol. We might need to look at the Eagles cuts for possible 2nd and 3rd stringers
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) If they keep ZHill after this game I will be shocked.
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:38 PM) Philly gave us a worse ass whipping than Detroit gave Buffalo. only difference is we scored
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 09:42 PM) Im just wondering what manning will put up on our secondary? 70?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:12 PM) who cares about getting destroyed in a preseason game, especially the 4th one. Most of these guys won't even make the team
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:15 PM) Hill cut yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) FIRE IDZIK
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:21 PM) Yeah this game means nothing...except to Stephen Hill (who fumbled lol) and 115
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:23 PM) Hill is a bum, hes pretty much never shown much football skill. The Jets fucked up big time taking him over Alshon Jeffery.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:29 PM) I'm still pissed off about that
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:43 PM) Its not that Im worried about the preseason game itself. i could care less about that. Its the fact of how bad we got destroyed. And some of the guys will be on the team and others on the fringe so getting destroyed like that doesnt fill me with confidence
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:44 PM) It would be one thing if it was just the second half or 4th quarter but this was the whole game. especially getting destroyed in the 1st quarter and at least part of the 2nd where a lot of the guys will be on the team
ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) 2nd and 3rd stringers making the team had something to prove and even our 2nd stringers got owned so yes Im very concerned. The first stringers need breaks and also if some of them get injured they need to step up. So no after this performance start to finish Im very concerned
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:39 AM) Meh...you're reading too much into it
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:40 AM) Even in seasons where the Jets blew, I haven't seen anyone refer to the preseason to complain. Ever.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:15 AM) fire izdik http://theredzone.or...rs/Default.aspx
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:17 AM) I picture Rob and 115 as real life friends
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:01 PM) Holmes can still play, problem is that hes also a cancer. He wore out his welcome with the Jets
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:23 PM) did Hill get cut?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:06 PM) Whos ready for the season!!? WOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 11:54 AM) Hill has been cut
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 01:24 PM) Who wants to take bets he ends up in NE
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:18 PM) We'll I guess you guys are fools then in thinking im a fool for being concerned. Do any of you even know that in 2013 the Jets gave up the most passing yards in the franchise since 1986? And our secondary right now is worse than last year right now. To not be concerned is utterly foolish.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:19 PM) Unless our d-line has a monstrous year odds are the team will be eaten up in the pass. Every team will game plan to exploit the pass this year.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:56 PM) Patterson got cut
flood555 Icon : (Today, 03:24 PM) Patterson must have been a huge cancer to get cut
flood555 Icon : (Today, 03:26 PM) is there a midseason draft? we need a DB!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:58 PM) Our week 1 starting CBs will be Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls... wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:58 PM) interesting that Simms and Boyd were released
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 04:00 PM) No more McIntyre
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:20 PM) Pretty sure some of these cuts like Simms and McIntyre were made for removing some more cap space to try to find some decent corners and maybe another reliable wr. Possibly get some players cheap. I'd say the current 53 roster will change a good bit in the next week.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:23 PM) I just hope Geno doesn't get hurt or we are horse f*cked. Vick sure as hell can't stay healthy for a full season. I guess the FO could also be think of picking up an old vet cut as 3rd qb. Simms is ok but I'd never trust him to win a regular season game if he was put in.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:25 PM) Anyway it's going yo be an interesting week.

Are you kidding me right now? They're both tremendous players and keep their team in games. I honestly hope they do trade him now so you can all bitch about the defense next year. You're so concerned about saving money but you neglected to answer what the benefit would be of trading Revis when it would be a $12,000,000 hit against the cap


The benefit is a short term penalty and future cap space coupled with the assets acquired in a trade, I thought that was obvious...

You honestly believe Revis can keep us in a game the way AD does Minnesota? Every team that played Minnesota this year knew they were running the ball and THEY STILL COULDN'T STOP HIM! How do you stop Revis? Well you could run the ball and essentially nullify his greatest strength. Or, how about abusing our line backers and nickel corner by throwing routes over the middle to the TE and slot receiver? Or you could throw to the other side of the field. Revis doesn't have the same impact that AD or a franchise QB has on a team, it's simply not possible from his position. Paying him 16M a year is beyond crazy in my opinion. I'd rather use that money to shore up multiple other gaps in our starting lineup.

So it's a stellar idea go to $12 million more in the hole when we're already ~$20-30 million over the cap..got it! If this team can pay Scott $11 million and pay Pace $8 million, THEY CAN PAY REVIS

You know why we can pay those 2 19M? Cause we're over the cap! We all know the $20M over the cap is bullshit anyway, we'll be well under once we cut all the bad contracts. So don't make it sound like they couldn't afford the 12M cap hit. Besides, we're not gonna be competitive next year anyway, so who cares about the cap hit? You act like it'll doom our Super Bowl chances, lol. We need to start the rebuilding process, that much is clear. And that's gonna be hard as hell to do without future cap space and financial flexibility.

You're right, we do need to start the rebuilding process, so let's take those steps without the most talented defender in the league.

Just wondering, since the Jets do not have a all world QB on the roster, if the Jets frontload Revis's contract next year (assuming Sanchez and Holmes are gone), can't they find a way to keep him? Say they front load his contract for 2-3 years and draft Teddy Bridgewater next year, wouldn't the Jets have enough room to keep both if Bridgewater gets a fat contract extension 3-4 years down the road?

Next point, the disregard some of you have for Revis's sheer amount of talent and football sense is astounding. Players like him don't grow on trees and the fact that some of you are just willing to toss him aside for a couple of unproven rookies is just amazing. The answer isn't trading him, the answer is finding a way to make him fit under the cap. He deserves an extended contract and more money for what he brings to the field, but putting up the most talented player the Jets have had since Martin for a trade is just sad. Trading the guy without making any substantial effort at an extension is just pathetic. For a player of his caliber, a trade should be the last option, not the first.

If you're not a QB or a top 5 pass rusher, (or nicknamed Megatron or AD) you don't impact the game enough to make 16M a year in my opinion. Revis might be the best to ever play his position, but keeping him will not allow us to effectively rebuild. My points remain that A) we've seen the best of Revis, his play will degrade at some rate from here on out (including his injury); and B) teams can easily gameplan around our 16M a year player (run the ball, throw over the middle to slot receiver and TE, throw to the other side if the field, more dump offs to RB's, more bubble screens, etc.). In comparison, there are very few options for game planning against franchise QB's and pass rushers (double teams are about it). It's just so hard to logically justify an extension in our situation, but all I keep hearing is "HE'S THE BEST, WE GOTTA KEEP HIM!" Let's get a little more substance.

I don't think front loading that heavily is an option considering our cap situation. I believe the contract would actually have to be fairly backloaded, but with the guaranteed money towards the front and in bonuses.

So this season it's more beneficial to take a cap hit of $12 million as opposed to possibly trading Cromartie who will give $8.25M of cap relief if he's traded? This team always overpays the marginal players who don't do anything or don't deserve it. Darrelle Revis is the best CB in the game. I have stated it over and over and over....you long time Jets fans always bitch and moan about not hitting it big in the draft, the second we have a player that's revered throughout the league, you want him out. If the money is negotiated to pay Pace and Scott obscene amounts like that, then Revis can see his payday.

He isn't going to get $16 million a year by the way...like 0099 wrote somewhere it's more realistic to see him make between $12-14 million, both sides are going to make concessions (as it stands in every negotiation). I see no problem paying the best CB in the game that kind of money

I'd bet just about anything that he'll make a hell of a lot closer to 16 than 12. You think Revis is gonna make concessions for us?!? That's a knee slapper, especially since he thinks we screwed him in the last deal and now he's offended by the trade talk. If another team offers a single dollar more than us, he's gone. It was said pretty eloquently before, Revis equates money with prestige. He's not gonna resign for 12-14 when he can test the waters after a bounce-back season and jump ship to the highest bidder. He's gonna hold this organization hostage with his contract demands, and if we don't trade him then we'll get nothing. He'll Lebron us while we're praying he re-signs, and I'm not looking forward to that.

Revis Article

This article pretty much sums up my point on the issue. It's virtually impossible to keep the man in our situation, and if we wait till FA he'll bolt for the highest bidder. Better to get something then nothing. We've got to leave out the emotion and realistically examine what options are available that will allow us to keep Revis, because there sure aren't very many...

Tanny put us in this situation, we can blame him if we're forced to trade the greatest player in franchise history.

That's all fine and dandy, but you can't necessarily compare the Jets situation to every one of those examples. The bottom line is, we have more holes than a block of Swiss cheese and paying Revis would cripple this team. Is he worth 16M a year? Probably, he's that damn good. But thanks to Tanny, the Jets are not in a position to make that a reality without hamstringing our ability to resign our own guys and attract quality free agents. If we sign Revis, we'll feel the ramifications of that financial burden for the next half-decade. Would you still be on board if it prevented us from resigning Mangold/Wilkerson/Coples/etc. and we still couldn't adequately fill current holes? It's a dangerous game when a team has as many needs as ours, and I for one vote that we start the rebuilding process immediately. This is NOT a Super Bowl team...



In almost all those cases you had one team giving away a star player to either get more players, more draft picks, or to save money. And what you guys are proposing by trading Revis is you want to give up a great player for draft picks (which is a gamble) and to save money (and trading Revis will end up costing the team MORE money). The FO dug a hole for itself and now the solution you guys have for getting out of this hole is to keep on digging. And that wouldn't cripple the team's further? And you guys keep throwing around that 16 million dollar figure as if the Jets would actually give it to him and as if Revis actually expects to get it. Plus you're basing that 16 million figure off of what "unnamed sources" have allegedly said to a tabloid newspaper. It's like back in 2010 when it was "reported" that he wanted 20 million a year. People got all upset about that and it wasn't even true. They still have to negotiate and as I've said that is something they should have been doing years ago. But no they chose to give Sanchez the extension and now we are talking about trading Revis. The reason this is NOT a Super Bowl team is because of the mismanagement by the people Woody hired. Now because of the screw ups made by Woody and company the answer is to ship Revis out of New York. But hey at least we can get some draft picks for him. Oh goody.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

I agree with your points. But we are here in this situation now and as much as we can do nothing - we can speculate what the right decision should be. To that end, there are 3 principal options in play. The first is to do nothing and have him play out the year.

I think we can all agree that would not be the wise decision as he could then leave and we would get nothing except a dead money cap hit on top of that. Bad option.

The second is to negotiate a long term deal now and to cover it by either trading Cro, restructuring others or back load but guarantee Revis his money. Advantage is we keep the best Jet since Namath and he makes our entire defense better. Downside is his knee becomes a problem, and we have limited cap space. And should he go down again we would be finished for years to come. Also, shut down corners have been absent from 7 of the past 8 Super Bowl winners and again this year regardless. So - can we surmise that shut down corners aren't necesssary for a Super Bowl but a severe pass rush is as well as an elite QB?

Thirdly, we trade him now and get draft choices. I know the argument that draft choices more often than not turn out to be disappointing. So that would lend us to believe that the more choices we have the better chance we have of some being really good. Tannenbaum got in trouble because he traded away our picks all the time.

So I'm conflicted. I want Revis to stay but I believe you win Super Bowls with an elite QB, a top offensive line and a strong pass rush. Getting an extra 1 and 3 this year would certainly help us go a long way toward righting this ship.

That would make him the highest paid CB in the game, his last contract he signed for 11.5 mil a year.

Pass rushers make more than CBs.

Yeah....and rEvis wants to be not only the higest paid CB, but the higest paid Defensive player in the league period. What's laughable is all of you that are saying to pay him all believe that he's going to come back without missing a beat & be the same player he was after the injury. It's funny though that he wasn't the same player coming off his holdout was he? That was only a few weeks. He'll be gone a lot longer than just a few weeks this time. But yet.....let's throw better than Mario Williams money at him. I seriously have to stop reading this thread because it's nothing more than talking to a bunch of Revis fans rather than actual Jets fans.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!
