MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:22 PM) I'm talking about the defense
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:22 PM) So they have an excuse
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:22 PM) How many starters are back from last year?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:23 PM) They had to let defensive players go too. And that's why they refused to pay Chancellor. They don't have the money
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:24 PM) Most of the Defense is back from last season.. who besides the 2nd CB do they not have?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:24 PM) I don't know how many starters. I didn't look through the whole active roster from last year to this year. But I know they let a good many starters go too
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:25 PM) Anyway we need them to win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:26 PM) it puts us in a 4 way tie for the WC
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:26 PM) Maybe Hou can win the division
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:26 PM) They had to let a corner and safety go from the defense and some dline from the starting line up. And some players on the online too
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:27 PM) That's why Russel isn't getting protection and Lynch is having a down year
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:28 PM) Yeah but you need to chr
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:29 PM) check my list of tiebreakers we are down in division and conference games. If the Jets don't beat the Bills and win most of the conference games no playoffs
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:31 PM) Plus we are down in schedule strength to everyone in the hunt for the playoffs except Houston but they have the win and tiebreaker against the Jets
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:32 PM) Oh and also the Bills are below us in schedule strength but have a win against us so have tiebreaker for now
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:33 PM) Chiefs have the easy schedule in the league got the rest of the season so chances of them not getting in are slim
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:35 PM) Chiefs and Stelers are in the drivers seat
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) Right but there is a lot of games to go still
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) who knows maybe we beat Tenn NYG Dal and Buf
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) 10-6?? Maybe
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) 1 game at a time I agree
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) KC and Oakland have to play each other twice
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:38 PM) Pitt Still has to play Cinn and Denver
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) Who they may beat.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) We just need Sea to win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) Game over
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:41 PM) Hawks win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:42 PM) Well if they make the PAT
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:42 PM) My bad I thought Pitt had 0 timeouts left
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:46 PM) I don't trust Denver against any good team with their backup qb in. I except the Chiefs to overtake the division. They really don't trust him either since an injured Manning is the #2 qb. He barely won last week
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:47 PM) Ben is hurt now
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:47 PM) Don't think its anything big tho
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:48 PM) But Steelers losing today and if they lose against the Bengals would help
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:55 PM) Ben has a possible concussion
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:08 PM) And Pitt plays Indy next week
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:09 PM) If Pittsburgh lose it help if indy lose Houston might be in 1st and have a tie breaker over indy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:16 PM) I just can't wait for Sunday. Me and my brother are going to the game. He's a giants fan. So somebody is going home mad
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:46 PM) Where is frosty??.and his MIGHTY DOLPHINS
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:58 PM) Marshall is 70 yards away from being our 1st 1000 yard receiver since cotch in 07
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:03 AM) f*** new England!! And gronk is hurt
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 12:04 AM) Nice to see the Pats won't have an undefeated season. That said the wheat her made the difference. Brady is accurate as heck and the snow affected the pass timing with the wr's
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 12:06 AM) Without the snow I couldn't see the Broncos winning that game. But again great to see the Pats chance at a perfect season go down the tubes
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:21 PM) Brandon Marshall is the best WR I've seen on the Jets
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:23 PM) How bad is Marcus Williams injury?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 02:23 PM) I like how this guy has 5 INTs in limited playing time, he reminds me of Asante Samuel

Darrelle Revis: John Idzik and Jets lied about trade plans

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.
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!!
