MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:42 PM) this guy is small
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) Most mocks had Lee at 17 to the Falcons
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) He's a day 1 starter for us. We've needed OLB forever
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:46 PM) Plus we generate a great rush from wilk rich and Williams
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:50 PM) I wanted Lawson bad
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:50 PM) f***ing bills
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:51 PM) Lee fills a need better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) I would have liked tunsil to slide to us though. After east picking great
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) Would you take Lee over Lawson?
azjetfan Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:55 PM) I'm not inspire by that pick. Not even a little
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:01 PM) Wasn't an option. Lawson was gone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:02 PM) Lawson is more of a de. We already have too many of those. We only have 1 proven LBer and he's 32 and we run a 3-4. Lee is a day 1 starter
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:03 PM) Broncos traded up for lynch
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:41 PM) Round 1 is done
2JBallar01 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 12:43 AM) He will play ILB for us.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:08 AM) http://nyjetsfan.com...showtopic=38865
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:19 AM) jets tried to trade up for tunsil but the price was too high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:10 PM) Tunsil will end up out of the league
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 05:12 PM) Lee isn't a pass rusher, hes a fast athletic LB. Hes probably their future at ILB, someone who can cover in the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:16 PM) jets said he's an ILB for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) If we could grab jack he would be an OLB
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:17 PM) ttians have 3 picks in the next 13 picks
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:33 PM) jack to jax 36th overal
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 06:33 PM) Did you hear that the 1st round pick for the Browns RETIRED after getting drafted
SoReALSoJetS Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:29 PM) Hi guys long time no talk hope everyone is well
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:46 PM) SMH
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:46 PM) JETS drafted QB Hackenberg PSU
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:47 PM) Should have picked Connor Cook.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 April 2016 - 07:56 PM) I guess we are giving up on petty
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) Or giving up on geno
Jetsfan115 Icon : (29 April 2016 - 09:02 PM) I said the rumor was they liked him more then cook
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 April 2016 - 11:35 PM) I know I'm biased, but I've seen them both play. Cook is just better. Hackenberg had one good year. Cook has won more games, played in big games and won them....whatever, its done now so no sense on dwelling on it I guess. I just don't see the appeal in Hackenberg, nice kid, but I always thought he was really overrated. Oh well. I would have taken Kevin Hogan over Hackenberg.
azjetfan Icon : (30 April 2016 - 03:47 PM) From what I have read so far he had a great freshman year under Obrien in a pro style offense. At that point some considered him the next Andrew luck. Then Obrien left and they shifted to a spread under new HC who did poor job bringing in talent. He was also sacked and hit a million times. Might be shell shocked.
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:17 AM) But Chan Gailey runs a spread system - still, I'm comfortable with the Hackenberg pick seeing as Gailey will develop the system to suit his strength... I'm just glad that we passed on Paxton Lynch in the first...we still desperately need Fitz to re-sign though
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:14 PM) From my understanding the spread in college and the spread in NFL are not the same principals. I really think it was more of a talent issue and getting sacked 80 times in 2 years that did him in. I have no idea if he will make it. I don't follow college ball enough to to know. Theses are just things I read in articles.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 10:24 AM) I'm stoked about getting peake in the 7th round. that was a steal. he was a projected 3rd rounder. wonder what scared teams away
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:05 PM) Jets Invite Terron Beckham(Odell's Cousin) to Minicamp
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:06 PM) Listed as a RB had more bench presses and highest vertical of anyone this year. Hasn't played football since high school and apparently not very smart

Welcome to New York Geno, where the media will work tirelessly to cripple your career before it even begins.

I was doing my morning daily rounds and I stumbled across an article on NFL.com by Marc Sessler, who makes several interesting points regarding these anonymous sources and Geno Smith:

Had Geno Smith been snatched up by, say, the San Diego Chargers to sit and learn behind Philip Rivers, you probably wouldn't be reading this.

Instead, Smith was drafted by the New York Jets, and the former West Virginia quarterback -- thrown into Gotham's media grinder -- now finds himself under a mountain of post-draft criticism.

This is the sad truth, now tell me the New York media, especially the media surrounding the Jets is not a hindrance to this organization. Had he been drafted by San Diego, he would still be the same player, he would have still fired his agents and he would have still been texting on his phone during visits, but their media would not crucify him like ours is trying to do. They would focus on his game, how is he going to play with the receivers we have? how will he adapt to the west coast offense? How is he getting on with the play-book handed to him the first day?

I say this because I follow a lot of beat reporters on twitter and i don't just read news from the Jets. The likes of San Diego, the likes of San Francisco, Pittsburgh and I'll even say New England have football people on their beat. We have tabloid people, more suited to working for TMZ than following a team and reporting on the football news the fans find relevant. Last night I read an article about Bill Belichick, his thoughts on the draft class and how he handles home sickness for his rookie players. I switch to the Jets, they are relating quotes from anonymous sources about how Geno Smith is a spoiled brat and how Mark Sanchez's hairband was a little off. We have known for some time that our beat reporters represent a flesh eating disease slowing chomping at the bit while we represent the white blood cells, eager but unable to fight them off.

Smith has been squeaky clean off the field, but who could guess from the snowstorm of criticism he's facing? After all, it takes little courage for anonymous scouts to pile on a player who hasn't taken a professional snap.

It takes plenty of courage to endure it.

I applaud Marc Sessler for speaking out about these anonymous sources, the only metric we lead the league in season after season. I have seen rival fans mention that it is Jets paranoia that players drafted by us are treated differently to players drafted by other organizations. Well it's not, as Marc put it so well in the first quote, had he been drafted in San Diego, we would probably not even be reading this article, and that is completely accurate.

Unfortunately for us, this isn't going to go away. As long as we have certain beat reporters following this football team we will always have to suffer through TMZ style reporting. Something that gets to us, and something that will get to the players. They are not immune to these criticisms, they will come out and say all the right things, but criticism will eat you alive if you hear it enough. The simple fact is that it is my own personal belief that a lot of our beat reporters use anonymous sources and sensationalist headlines to make up for a lack of real football knowledge. Which is why they create and seek tabloid like stories.

This is a clear message to Geno. We don't care if some NFC executive took you off their board because of what he perceived you to be in a couple of hours of your time. Their loss, our gain. We don't care if you tweeted a friend while at a facility, or that after 20 interviews at the combine you didn't blow the roof off the interview. We don't care if you made a business decision to fire your agents because they didn't represent you like they should. If they gave you bad advice that cost you a couple of million $, you should fire them and we would all do the same thin.

We do care that you are now a part of the franchise and represent hope for the future. We do care that you have never once had any off the field issues and you worked to help the community while in West Virginia. We do care that you threw 98 touchdowns to just 21 interceptions through your career at West Virginia. We do care that you completed over 70% of your passes in your senior year. We do care that you had a quick short release and impeccable accuracy in short to medium routes, which fits perfectly with our new west coast offense.

Unfortunately for us, the beat reporters will continue to be a plague, a black mark against this franchise.

Put Rich Cimini at the top of this heap of shit reporters. He is just as bad as the tabloid style guys, but tries to hide under this cocksure "football guy" attitude. God I hate his writing.

I've seen him in camp. He watched practice for about 2 hours without taking a single note.

is it just ME or did anyone else notice that when a club made a pick...they showed the draftee's successes & stellar plays. Then when it came to our picks...they showed Milner's combine where dropped the ball what seemed like 2,395 time (cause they showed it so dam much) & Sheldon was a man dying of thirst...having a colander to drink out of? Maybe Im being too critical ... but I could swear all our picks got LOW lights while the rest of the draft was HIGH LIGHTS
