OFF SEASON ALMOST OVER AUG 13 VS LIONS
Mr_Jet Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:20 PM) Yes I highly recommend anybody looking to get into House of Cards to take a weekend to binge watch at least the first 2 seasons.
azjetfan Icon : (09 June 2015 - 09:29 PM) I agree mr jet. The third was a little disappointing
azjetfan Icon : (10 June 2015 - 04:34 PM) Boss is what is what I am watching now. Not as good as house of cards but entertaining
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 03:53 PM) Eagles release absent Pro Bowl guard Mathis
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 03:54 PM) get it done big mac. instant upgrade at Guard for us
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) 33 years old.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) Im not against it but it would have to be a short term deal
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:37 PM) rumor has it he wanted a raise over his $5.5 million base this year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:39 PM) 33 is young for a guard. he's got at least 3-4 more years in him
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Mmmmm I disagree.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) I would go 2 year deal.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 June 2015 - 10:40 PM) TEH WARRIORS
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE BURKE

santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
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.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (29 June 2015 - 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome

azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:53 PM) Shot an 86 today. Personal best.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:19 PM) well done

Maybe New York Jets general manager John Idzik didn't quite say what he meant. Maybe, when he insinuated to season ticket holders in a conference call that Tim Tebow would be on the roster for training camp, it came out sideways. That's what the word out of Jets land was afterward.

Maybe the plan really is what we all thought -- that Gang Green will try like crazy to see what the trade market is for Tebow, only to eventually cut him.
But in my mind, Idzik had the right idea on Monday. In my mind, it was a Freudian slip.

Idzik said of the quarterbacks, "Let it play out this offseason and into training camp. I think that'll be healthy for all concerned, including Tim." When you press Jets people on that, they wonder if that's what he really meant. But I'm not ready to ignore the line of thinking Idzik perpetuated.

In my mind, that's what Idzik should have meant.

The Jets should bring Tebow into training camp in 2013.

The media is tired of Tebow. He won't be the focus of our world like he was last year. It won't be a circus atmosphere every time he shows up at his locker. The time has come and gone for us to hang on his every word. He'll never be just a guy, but he'll be more of just a guy this time than last time.

Open market
With the NFL free agency period set to kick off March 12, Gregg Rosenthal breaks down the top 85 available players in the league starting with Mike Wallace.

Yet Idzik's words should not have been lip service. Yes, the Jets are open to trading Tebow. They've made no secret of that. That's their ideal.

But it would be better for the team if the rumblings I'm starting to hear are true. On the field, he still could be viable. It would help the team if the Jets were serious about keeping Tebow on the roster through training camp, amping up competition and trying to see if they can gain a return on their investment.

Because why not?

Remember, the Jets originally traded a fourth- and sixth-round draft pick for Tebow, then negotiated a deal to pay $2.53 million of his signing bonus.

The internal rumblings you'll hear from time to time goes like this: They have Tebow. They've already given up the picks and spent the money. Why cut him? What's the hurry?

Take him into minicamp and be open to taking him to training camp in July. See what you have. For real this time.

The Jets no longer are worried about Sanchez's feelings. They've already done their best to avoid saying he'll be the starter, so that's clear. And if Tebow's presence still overwhelms Sanchez, than Greg McElroy will be more than happy to stand under center.

Talk to Denver Broncos people and they can't believe former offensive coordinator Tony Sparano didn't give Tebow a chance, no matter how bad he was in practice. They still think Tebow can win games, just like he did in Denver. New offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has never shied from a challenge, no matter how unconventional.

Sure, the Jets might cut Tebow later this month, like we all assume. But it's finally time for the team to try one more time to make good on its investment. If you listen closely, that's what it's starting to sound like.
