Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:14 PM) finally made a play on defense once Pryor came in
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 August 2014 - 07:15 PM) besides that INT, Geno looks better than last season IMO. seems more comfortable and is going through progressions.
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 : (Yesterday, 09:33 AM) Howard recieved a huge contract in Oakland. Way over his actual value.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 10:08 AM) So did we make a trade for a CB yet?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:51 PM) Milliner did suffer a high ankle sprain, that sucks. could linger all year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:52 PM) I think Patterson sucked vs the Colts because he was injured, which he always is.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Today, 07:02 AM) FIRE IDZIK
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 08:33 AM) out side of Revis who left we should have kept?
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 11:00 AM) Matt Slauson
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 01:49 PM) Time will tell.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 02:44 PM) Yea the DRC bit makes me iffy
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:35 PM) better then patterson
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 05:45 PM) No I mean the fact that he whiffed on him.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 07:39 PM) Reed is a HOF but Rolle was way past his prime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:41 PM) SNOOPY BOWL FRIDAY!!!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:41 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 08:26 PM) I assume we will pick up a guy after the cuts happen.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:14 PM) we'll see but I think we see better QB play than we have in a while.

Jets sign safety Dawan Landry

The New York Jets addressed their glaring need at safety by replacing one Landry with another.

the green and white? ESPNNewYork.com has you covered. Blog

Nearly one month after losing LaRon Landry to the Indianapolis Colts, the Jets signed his older brother, Dawan Landry. Contract terms were not disclosed by the team.

LaRon congratulated his brother in a tweet Tuesday afternoon.

"My big bro just sent me a text sayin 'Jet life to da next life'.. congrats big bro," he wrote.

Dawan Landry, 30, cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars before the start of free agency, will be reunited with Rex Ryan and Dennis Thurman. He played under the Jets' coach and defensive coordinator for the first three of his five seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, from 2006 to 2008.

Dawan Landry played an instrumental role last offseason when LaRon, a free agent, was looking for a team. He provided his younger brother with a scouting report on Ryan and his defensive system.

LaRon Landry signed a one-year contract with the Jets and made his first Pro Bowl, but he bolted for a four-year, $24 million contract with the Colts.

The Jets also lost Yeremiah Bell (Arizona Cardinals) and cut top backup Eric Smith, leaving the team thin at the safety position. The only safeties on the roster were 2012 late draft picks Antonio Allen and Josh Bush, neither of whom played last season in the base defense.

With Dawan Landry, the Jets get a proven starter who already knows the system. He isn't known for his pass coverage (only 12 interceptions in seven years), but he should be a solid "box" safety against the run.

He was due to make $5.35 million from the Jaguars and was released after two seasons. Landry, originally a fifth-round pick from Georgia Tech, has played in 98 games. He has 5.5 sacks and three touchdown returns on interceptions.

You're the scumbag that thinks everyone should kiss the as$es of a bunch of criminals but I'm a dumbass. Yeah okay douchebag. Go give some illegal wetback or Revis another blowjob. But then again.....don't you live in an entirely different country but yet think you can tell us how to live? Go fvck yourself little boy. You're likely still living with mommy & daddy. Pu$$y.

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.

A no brainer signing... The Jets needed a safety and Dawan has experience with Rex.
