MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 01:41 PM) Hack should be playing
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 03:39 PM) wooooo5-11
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 04:00 PM) J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) OK so Bill O brien and Sean Payton might get fired according to Fox this morning
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) I would do anything to get one of them as OC
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) texans coach? i doubt he gets fired
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) but he would be ideal if the jets were to flush bowles out

azjetfan Icon : (05 January 2017 - 09:54 PM) Sean Payton will get another HC gig. Obrien would be good.
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:18 PM) Howard from Alabama seems legit. #88 TE
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:20 PM) Williams the WR from Clemson looks like they are out to get him. He has taken some huge hits
vjdbbq Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:12 AM) We'll take Williams in the first round .
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 10:48 AM) I'd love Howard in the 2nd round if he's still there. I like Williams a lot as well, but I just don't see WR being big enough of a need, and there should be better talent on the board at 6
Jetsfan115 Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:21 PM) Raiders OC Musgrave not expected to return to OAK. what do you think about getting him? he did wonders with the oakland offense this year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:39 PM) Definitely an appealing choice given with his history of progressing Carr. We need someone with a track record of grooming young QBs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (12 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) I want Watson now! after what he did Monday night I'm sold on him at QB. He moved the ball all night on Alabama and after hurts scored that TD he just told his team "Lets end this"
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:31 PM) An Ohio prosecutor says he wants to know what punishment Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones faces from the NFL before deciding how to proceed over Jones' latest arrest, Dan Sewell of the Associated Press reports..

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WKRC-TV he's asking "what is the normal" for a player with multiple offenses and who's been suspended before.

An NFL spokesman said on Thursday that Jones' case is "under review" and declined to comment further.

Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. Authorities say he was so combative he had to be placed in a restraint chair.

Jones says he anticipates the charges will be dismissed.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:32 PM) we wont get watson. he's going 1st overall to the browns
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:06 PM) Is Watson a product of Clemson's staff and supporting cast? Taj Boyd also put up some decent numbers if I remember correctly but he couldn't even make a scout team in the NFL.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) From what I have read (although limited) he is not the highest ranked QB in the draft.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) "No quarterback in this draft -- not Mitch Trubisky, not Watson, not DeShone Kizer -- is considered a sure thing. The folks at Scouts Inc. rank Trubisky, Watson and Kizer as the 21st, 38th and 46th prospects on their big board, respectively." ESPN
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:12 PM) If we can get a decent return for Richardson we may be able to make a move into the mid teens to early 20s if the Brass really likes Watson.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:13 PM) Personally I don't think the jets have a clue on who they will take. We still have to hit FA and manage our roster
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 11:46 PM) Jets to interview Broncos assistant Studesville for OC
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:28 PM) Why? seems like a weird choice
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:29 PM) Leonard Williams replacing Khalil Mack in Pro Bowl
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm not buying Watson, even after that championship game. Dude threw too many picks in his day
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm really curious to see what we get for Richardson, but I have a bad feeling his value is at an all time low between his crap season and bad attitude
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 12:16 AM) I agree. He is a first round talent but a fourth round headache. We will be lucky to get a 2nd
Chadforpresi... Icon : (14 January 2017 - 08:41 AM) Yeah precisely. 2nd rounder would be a huge stretch. 3rd or 4th is more likely
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:51 PM) Seems like a slightly steep price but overall cool with it, he's turned into a good player and is still young. Just needs to stay healthy.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 January 2017 - 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 08:12 AM) :saythat:
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 08:13 AM) :trink39:
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:32 PM) 4 years 29 mil 15 mil guarenteed. so 7.25mil a year for winters. a nice bargain. he took a hometown discount. seems like a good guy. well done winters and mac
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:33 PM) Jets hire Dennard Wilson as defensive backs coach

Quote

1. Broadway Geno: It was widely reported March 14 that Jets senior personnel executive Terry Bradway attended the West Virginia pro day, headlined by QB Geno Smith. Turns out that Bradway was accompanied by offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. The Jets' contingent had some private time with Smith, and they came away very impressed. The Jets have warmed to Smith since last month's scouting combine, where he didn't blow people away with his interviews. Some feel that may have been caused by fatigue (the combine can be a grind), but he certainly redeemed himself in the eyes of the Jets.

Do they like him enough to pick him ninth overall (if he lasts that long)? I honestly don't know. My sense is the Jets will ride out 2013 with their current cast of quarterbacks (plus maybe another veteran) and look for their quarterback of the future next year. But it would make for some interesting draft-room conversation if Smith slips to the Jets.

2. Revis watch: I don't agree with the notion the Jets should accept only 2014 trade compensation for Darrelle Revis. There's no certainty with future draft picks. What if the Bucs reach the divisional playoffs? Then you're looking at the 24th pick (at best), too low for a player of Revis' caliber. GM John Idzik should absolutely demand the Bucs' first-round pick this year (13th overall), which reportedly is the sticking point in trade talks. With a trade of this magnitude, the Jets need certainty, not projection. Idzik should ask for this year's No. 1 and next year's No. 2 from the Bucs. That would be a fair compromise. People who know Idzik say he won't buckle to media pressure.

3. Moneyball: I spoke to a salary-cap expert who questioned Idzik's decisions to let veterans such as S LaRon Landry and TE Dustin Keller walk out the door without so much as an offer. Despite the criticism of Mike Tannenbaum's cap management, the Jets began the free agency period with roughly $18 million in room after cutting players and re-working deals. It was enough cap space, the expert said, to make competitive offers.

The expert also said: If Idzik was concerned about jamming up the 2013 cap for a player like Landry, who received the biggest contract among the Jets' defections (four years, $24 million from the Colts), he could've structured the deal to include a chunk of the guaranteed money in 2014. In other words, there were creative ways to get it done. Obviously, Idzik didn't feel the players were worth the trouble. He made value judgments; it wasn't because he was handcuffed by the perceived failings of the previous administration, per our salary-cap man.


4. The root of Rex's switch: Remember all the talk last offseason from Rex Ryan, who claimed he was ready to step away from the defense in an effort to monitor the pulse of all aspects of the organization? Well, forget it. Ryan is returning to "my roots," reclaiming the play calling responsibilities on defense. Don't buy any of the spin; this is all about one thing -- self-preservation. If Ryan goes down, he wants to go down swinging, controlling the area he knows best.

5. Say, what?: When the Jets trade Revis to the Bucs a few days before the April 25 draft, I wonder if Ryan will finally admit the Jets were actively shopping the star cornerback.

6. Jonesing for a draft slide: Georgia OLB Jarvis Jones, linked to the Jets at No. 9 in many mock drafts, hurt his stock with a poor pro day. He ran anywhere from a 4.90 to a 4.92, disappointing for a 6-foot-3, 243-pound linebacker. One scout told me the workout was "absolutely shocking." Jones is an enigma -- highly productive in college (led the nation in sacks), but "as mediocre as you can get, athletically," the scout said. On the other hand, there's the Terrell Suggs story -- a prolific pass rusher in college who tested poorly leading into the 2003 draft. Ryan was a member of the Ravens' staff that chose Suggs with the 10th overall pick, and he has managed quite nicely in the NFL. In Jones' case, he also has a medical question -- spinal stenosis.

7. Little Big Man: If I'm the Jets, I'm thinking of West Virginia WR Tavon Austin with the ninth pick. He's an absolute blur, an electric playmaker who'd be perfect for the Jets' moribund offense. At 5-foot-8, 173 pounds, he has Jeremy Kerley size, but Austin is in a different league than Kerley. He produced 1,289 receiving yards and 643 rushing yards last season for the Mountaineers. He'd be the Jets' version of Percy Harvin. Austin posted the second-best 40 time at the combine (4.34). Here's how one scout described Austin's 40: "He ran by me so fast that I was like, 'Holy ----!'" The Jets could use a "Holy ----!" guy on their team.

8. What the ?!?: At last week's meetings, the NFL voted to eliminate the tuck rule. From now on, if a quarterback loses the ball while attempting to bring it back to his body, it's a fumble, not an incomplete pass. The mere discussion of the rule, of course, brought back memories of the 2001 AFC divisional playoff between the Patriots and Raiders. I was fortunate enough to have covered that classic game. I remember a small contingent of Raiders front-office officials leaping from their seats in the press box, screaming and high-fiving when they recovered Tom Brady's fumble -- or so they thought. There's no cheering in the press box, and those Oakland guys made absolute boobs of themselves. The postscript: They sat in silence, seemingly comatose, when the officials invoked the tuck rule.

9. Manti-ster of the Midway: There's some speculation that the Bears could select Notre Dame LB Manti Te'o with the 20th pick in the first round. My opinion: Don't do it. In addition to living down his imaginary girlfriend, Te'o would have to battle the ghost of Brian Urlacher. That's too many invisible things for one person to handle.

10. Smoke in your eyes: Bruce Arians talking up Drew Stanton as the potential starting quarterback for the Cards reminds me of 2009, when the Jets were raving about Kellen Clemens and Erik Ainge -- a classic smokescreen. There's no way Stanton is their opening-day starter. Bet on it. They'll draft a quarterback, just like the Jets drafted Mark Sanchez in 2009.
