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 - 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

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 : (Yesterday, 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 08:59 PM) I feel fast.

Darrelle Revis: John Idzik and Jets lied about trade plans
Apr

Darrelle Revis said Jets general manager John Idzik then told him he was going nowhere last week, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Four days later, the Jets traded Revis
to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for two draft picks, capping a bizarre few months that left pundits debating the merits of trading arguably the best defensive player in the NFL.

“Definitely I feel like I haven’t gotten the truth,” Revis said in a quiet moment after his introductory press conference in Tampa on Monday. “Anybody can sit here and tell you to your face, ‘Yeah, you’re going to be a Jet.’ But what’s the truth out of it? What’s really true?

“I know it’s a lie,” he added.

Revis believed all along that owner Woody Johnson was the trigger man. Johnson never intended to pay Revis — six months removed from ACL surgery — the money he wanted. So the owner never made the effort to talk to Revis this offseason. “Woody don’t want to talk to me,” Revis said. “Let’s just be real. He didn’t want to talk to me. He stayed as far away as he could.”

Revis says Jets GM Idzik didn’t tell him truth about trade ­­— even last week

TAMPA — The conversation took place last Wednesday.

Darrelle Revis was at the Jets’ Florham Park, N.J., facility rehabbing his surgically repaired left knee when he bumped into new Jets general manager John Idzik.

This is how Revis recalled the conversation:

“Do you want to be a Jet?’’ Idzik asked.

“Why would you ask me that question?’’ Revis responded, adding he made it clear to Idzik he wanted to remain a Jet.

That is when, Revis told New York reporters yesterday shortly after he was introduced in a Tampa press conference as the newest member of the Buccaneers, Idzik assured him he wasn’t going anywhere.
AP
PARTING SHOT: Darrelle Revis is all smiles as he sits with Bucs GM Mark Dominik and coach Greg Schiano at his introductory press conference. But later he said Jets GM John Idzik lied to him and owner Woody Johnson never talked with him. Post columnist Mark Cannizzaro writes the Revis saga didn’t have to end in such an ugly fashion.

Four days after that conversation, Idzik traded Revis to Tampa Bay for the Buccaneers’ 13th overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft, which begins Thursday, and a conditional 2014 fourth-rounder that could become a third-rounder.

So minutes after Revis smiled for the cameras and answered questions from Tampa-area reporters he was sitting in a quiet hallway with three familiar New York faces and he painted a picture of lies and deception he believes he was subjected to from the franchise he hoped to play the rest of his career with.

“I definitely feel like I haven’t gotten the truth [from the Jets],’’ Revis said. “Anyone can sit there and tell you to your face, ‘Yeah, you’re going to be a Jet.’ But what’s the truth out of it? It was more from Idzik. He told me I was going to be a Jet. He said it then when we first talked and he said it last week, too. I know it’s a lie.

“They give you the corporate answer instead of the truth,’’ he went on. “Just tell the truth, because people want to know what’s going on. I want to know what’s going on with my career, whether you’re going to trade me or you’re not. Whatever you’re doing, just let me know.

“I just don’t get that part of not telling me what you’re going to do with me when I come to you and ask questions and say, ‘Hey, what’s going on?’ ’’

Sure, Revis and his agents, who had a contentious relationship with Jets management over the years, could be a pain in the Jets’ butt with the holdouts and constant desire for a better contract.

But even if the Jets didn’t believe he was worth the $16 million a year he desired (and got from the Bucs), Revis, always a gamer on the field and never a problem off of it, was owed the truth. That would not have cost Idzik and the Jets a dime.

Revis, who dodged questions about his recovery from a torn ACL though the Bucs made it clear they expect him ready for their opener against the Jets at MetLife Stadium, said he felt deceived since the moment Idzik was hired and the rumors of the Jets’ desire to trade him began to surface.

“I wake up one day in January going to rehab and I hear I’m getting traded and nobody even called me,’’ he said. “I’m supposed to be the best player on the team and all of a sudden they’re letting me go.’’

Asked if he has spoken to team owner Woody Johnson, who it has been widely reported had no intention of paying Revis the big money he was seeking, Revis said, “Noooo. Woody don’t want to talk to me, man. Let’s just be real, man. Woody don’t want to talk to me. He stayed as far away as he could.’’

Revis also insisted the Jets never made any effort to sign him to a new long-term contract to keep him, even indicating that he would have been willing to take the same non-guaranteed deal he signed with Tampa Bay.

“The Jets never contacted my agents about a long-term deal or even a short-term deal,’’ he said. “They never even approached us, so that’s that. The truth is the truth.’’

That the Jets never made an effort to negotiate with Revis’ agents is as preposterous as it is bad business. At least make an effort to keep your best player — even if you know it’s likely futile. Idzik did not return calls to comment on Revis’ claims.

“It’s over now,’’ Revis said. “They knew I wanted to be there and obviously I’m somewhere different. This is a new chapter in my life. This is my new home, man. I’m in Tampa now. I’m a Buccaneer.’’

Revis was willing to look at what he left behind, including his biggest supporter in Rex Ryan.

“As a friend, yeah, I feel for Rex,” he said. “Rex played a big part in my career, and yeah I feel for him. I feel for him — not just because of my situation, but a lot of the things that have happened in the offseason. It’s a whole new team up there.”

There was a hint of melancholy to Revis’ voice, because he wanted to remain in New York.

But there he was yesterday, dressed in a grey suit with a shiny Tampa Bay Buccaneers pin attached to the left lapel of his jacket, sitting in front of a bright red and pewter banner.

It just didn’t look right. So much for being “a Jet for life.’’

Revis is a world class moron if he thought Idzik was going to tell him that yes he was being traded. Revis had the opportunity to stay a Jet and decided he didn't want to when he made it clear he wanted to be the highest paid defensive player in the league. He was ALREADY the highest paid CB. Now he can "make some noise" in Tampa and hopefully we can stop seeing multiple Revis threads in a JETS forum. Hell.....they're already questioning whether he'll even suit up week 1 against us. He's gone and now hopefully the media can stop with the Revis circus. He's Tampa's problem now. Not ours.

It's just funny that Idzik was involved in the trade of both Meshawn and Mevis between the Jets and Bucs. If Revis hadn't torn his ACL, he may either still be a Jet or we would've received at least 2 first rounders considering Idzik gave up 2 first rounders for Meshawn.
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!!
