Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:18 PM) DeMario Davis seems like hes poised to have a breakout season at LB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:50 PM) It was nice seeing Pryor in, he made some plays. I think hes going to be the real deal and that we will hit on a stud with him
azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:43 PM) The pick by Geno seemed to be more on Nelson. Nelson sat on his route. Geno threw it were he was supposed to be.
azjetfan Icon : (16 August 2014 - 08:44 PM) Who knows though
santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) http://gfycat.com/Mi...idHookersealion
santana Icon : (16 August 2014 - 11:55 PM) Gotta fix that
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:35 PM) Is anyone else as concerned as I am about the secondary?
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:36 PM) I know it's preseason and all but even with Milliner in on the first game we gave up a TD on the first drive to the Colts
azjetfan Icon : (17 August 2014 - 01:37 PM) Patterson looked like me out there and Wilson got torched last night
Smedsthejet Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:26 PM) Concerned about the right side of the OLine too - too many penalties and Giacomini wasn't that much better than against the Colts when he was poor
SackExchange71 Icon : (17 August 2014 - 02:31 PM) Imo i still think howard is better then giacomini..Wish they never let him walk.Giacomini had alot of flags in seattle also
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:33 AM) Howard recieved a huge contract in Oakland. Way over his actual value.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 10:08 AM) So did we make a trade for a CB yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:51 PM) Milliner did suffer a high ankle sprain, that sucks. could linger all year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 August 2014 - 03:52 PM) I think Patterson sucked vs the Colts because he was injured, which he always is.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:49 PM) As much as people criticized Tannanbaum for spending too much. It's starting to look like Idzik is going to be too cheap.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 06:52 PM) You get what you pay for and when you let quality players go because you don't want to pay them, this is what happens. You're left with scrub players.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 07:55 PM) I'm still on board with the Idzik plan. Even with Revis and Revis we still are not going to the SB this year. But the down time sucks. If Milliner comes back healthy by week 3 or so we should be fine.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 08:18 PM) Regardless of our SB chances this year or next year. If Idzik keeps acting like a cheapskate and continues to let quality players go, we won't have to worry about winning much of anything this decade.
azjetfan Icon : (18 August 2014 - 09:36 PM) He wants to build through the draft. Not blow the bank on FA. I get what your saying but there is a balance and right now we are not one or two pieces away.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:00 PM) It's not about being one or two pieces away. It's about keeping the good pieces you have and building upon that.
Mr_Jet Icon : (18 August 2014 - 11:04 PM) But there is no sense in trying to build through the draft if he's only going to end up letting the good players he picks up go in FA after a few years. All because he wants to do things on the cheap.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:34 AM) The Revis deal sucks but $16 million was too much for a CB and once he was gone he was not coming back.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 01:00 PM) Eh. I think with our current cap situation we will be able to retain guys like Wilkerson and whomever we want to keep. We are in a good position right now.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:00 PM) landed revis abck. got DRC, nope we take patterson who got owned and always hurt. milner always hurt. 3rd round CB done for season. were gonna get passed on all day
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:46 PM) I'm not saying Idzik is perfect. I just like the direction we are heading. It's going to take some patience.
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) I like how our lack of secondary is the hot topic right now. The bigger issue is we still will not be able to throw the ball. We are not going to do much of anything regardless until we get a QB. Sorry for being so negative just my honest opinion.
RetireChrebet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:29 PM) With that said I think our running game with CJ and Powell will be top 10 or somewhere around there
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:35 PM) i have faith that if geno messes up that vick can come in and do well. but i have 0 faith in our secondary right now which has been our strong point for the past 4 years or so
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:35 PM) I agree 115. but the one thing is Rex has done some good things in the past with shitty DBs and still had a solid D going back to his years in BAL
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:37 PM) Corey Ivy CB
36 Jim Leonhard SS/PR
43 Haruki Nakamura FS
25 Evan Oglesby CB
20 Ed Reed FS
22 Samari Rolle CB
39 Daren Stone FS
41 Frank Walker CB
31 Fabian Washington in 2008
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.
518-JeTS-FaN Icon : (Today, 08:54 AM) disgusted with my local programming, instead of jets and giants they are airing the raiders vs packers..wtf
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 09:23 AM) Glad I don't live up there anymore haha

Jets Ready To Cut Scott/pace Cut Smith too & save 27.7 Million combined

NY Jets ready to cut

It seems the Jets can’t wait to say goodbye to Bart Scott.
Sources told the Daily News Thursday that Gang Green’s plan is to cut the loquacious linebacker, along with Calvin Pace — another mainstay of the linebacking corps — and offensive tackle Jason Smith in the coming weeks before free agency begins March 12. The moves would save the Jets $27.7 million in cap space for next season.
Scott has been the face and mouth of the Jets defense since 2009, and Gang Green would save $7.2 million if he is released. Pace, a Jet since 2008 and in the final year of his contract, would represent $8.6 million in cap savings, and Smith would save the team $12 million, bringing Gang Green under the expected 2013 cap of $121.1 million.
In addition, the Jets will carry over $3.4 million of unused cap space from the 2012 season on top of the expected $121.1 figure.
Much has been made of the Jets’ difficult salary-cap situation. The damage left by former general manager Mike Tannenbaum undoubtedly put the Jets in a poor situation but not an unfixable one — these expected cuts would alleviate much of the cap pressure that new GM John Idzik faces.
Scott signed a six-year, $48 million deal in February of 2009 to follow Rex Ryan, his defensive coordinator in Baltimore, to the Jets. Scott may be remembered by Jets fans more for his fiery personality than his play.
The inside linebacker personified the Jets’ playoff runs in 2010-11 with his “can’t wait” comment on national television following Gang Green’s stunning 28-21 playoff victory over the Patriots, but also had his fair share of gaffes, too.
Following the Jets’ disappointing 2011 season, Scott refused to talk to the media, then flipped off photographers, saying, “Get that out of my f------ face,” for which he earned a $10,000 fine from the league.

Scott’s war with the media continued last season when he threatened Dan Leberfeld of Jets Confidential during an open locker-room session in September. The reporter had tried to snap a photo of Scott — who had recently declared a media boycott — as he was leaving the locker room while the linebacker was talking with another reporter. “I’ll smack the s--- out of you,” Scott yelled at him. “And I’m going to sue you,” Leberfeld fired back. Jets media relations director Bruce Speight and another member of the PR staff had to separate the two.
Then, this past Thanksgiving night, after the Jets were pummeled by the Pats, Scott ripped fans who had heckled the team at halftime.
“At the end of the day, if you made it to be able to put an NFL uniform on, then you are one of the best athletes in the world,” Scott told The News. “The person yelling at you probably was picked last in dodge ball all through high school.
“So do you care about the opinion of them? No.”
Scott averaged 74.8 tackles per year (54 solo) in his four seasons with the Jets, but he had only 60 total tackles (36 solo) this past season.
Though both linebackers are 32, Scott is approaching the twilight of his career while Pace is still a useful commodity — just not at his current price tag. For Pace, there will likely be other suitors willing to offer more than the Jets, who are strapped due to their cap situation.
The changing of the guard at linebacker means 2012 third-round pick DeMario Davis will replace Scott, pairing up with David Harris at inside linebacker.
The Jets may look to replace Pace via the draft. One can certainly imagine the Jets filling the hole at outside linebacker with their first-round pick (No. 9). However, that would mean the Jets will have drafted a defensive player with their first pick for the fourth straight season, and there are plenty of other areas that need to be addressed.
NEW LB COACH: The Jets hired Brian VanGorder as linebackers coach. VanGorder was the Falcons’ defensive coordinator from 2008-2011 and Auburn’s defensive coordinator last season. He replaces Bob Sutton, who left to become the Chiefs’ defensive coordinator. Also, the Jets confirmed a Daily News report that Bobby April III has been hired as a quality control coach for defense, a position he has held with the Eagles for the past two seasons.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

The team could also save another 4.75 million by converting Holmes guaranteed money into a bonus, and another just about 7 million by cutting Eric Smith & Pouha.

Total savings are just about 29 million by the 5 cuts & converting Holmes money. Eat the just under 1.5 million by trading Revis & save more than 15 million in 2014.
