Azjetfan is the nyjetsfan #1 pick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:21 PM) 6'4 330 DL who is very strong
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:25 PM) zac stacy for a 7th
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:25 PM) well can't complain about that
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:29 PM) So we have 4 rbs now
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:31 PM) still would have rather taken a runner on collins but i can't complain with depth
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:32 PM) i mean they can't expect to carry 4 rb though no?
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:50 PM) Collins would have been a waste. He would not have signed. At least we have something to show for our pick. Worst case scenario is we trade or release one of our backs.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:56 PM) I know it's hard to tell without seeing a win loss record yet but this regime seems really on point.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:56 PM) For the first time in my life I can say I feel comfortable with the people making the decisions.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:57 PM) I was close with Parcells but he seemed like a short term fixer and didn't care about the long term
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 06:57 PM) SUCK FOR THE DUCK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 06:57 PM) .......oh wait
santana Icon : (03 May 2015 - 01:13 AM) Well that was a disappointment
Chadforpresi... Icon : (03 May 2015 - 01:24 AM) I like getting Stacy for our 7th rounder, assuming he can handle the fact he won't be a feature back (yikes)
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:31 AM) I like the trade, hes a quality back and adds more depth to our backfield
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:32 AM) Macc has pretty much killed it this offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:32 AM) He has turned this roster around, he has added talent and competition all over.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:33 AM) We still aren't great at QB, but our overall football team is good. We have a realistic shot at making a playoff run
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:33 AM) We may have the best defense in football. We have a great DL and secondary, that is gonna be tough on offenses when you can stop the run, pressure the QB, and blanket the receivers
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:23 PM) ok now it's time for this team to take all this talent and do something anything below a 10-6 season will be a disappointment
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:24 PM) the only still glaring issue is QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:25 PM) we got the WR problem solved, we got probably one of the best Defenses in the game and we have addressed the OL but QB will still be the glaring issue
Chaos Icon : (04 May 2015 - 09:34 AM) jets cleaning house
azjetfan Icon : (04 May 2015 - 05:57 PM) I'm excited about this year. Could be a good year for the Jets.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (04 May 2015 - 07:32 PM) weird how they cleaned house in the scouting department after such a successful draft and off-season so far
azjetfan Icon : (04 May 2015 - 07:36 PM) I assume they didn't bring much to the table
santana Icon : (04 May 2015 - 08:41 PM) Have to clean the table
santana Icon : (04 May 2015 - 09:08 PM) Fuck the rangers
santana Icon : (04 May 2015 - 09:08 PM) face off dominated holtby gtfo
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (04 May 2015 - 09:18 PM) La'el Collins is meeting with Rex Ryan tonight
MikeGangGree... Icon : (05 May 2015 - 12:31 AM) FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH!
Chaos Icon : (05 May 2015 - 05:41 AM) Damn that'd make up for the Bills not having a first rounder
azjetfan Icon : (05 May 2015 - 10:59 AM) They didn't sign him yet. It's just a visit.
santana Icon : (05 May 2015 - 01:49 PM) Uefa time
ROBJETS Icon : (05 May 2015 - 11:56 PM) Not sure if anyone saw this on the MSN home page but might be something worth looking into for the offensive line
ROBJETS Icon : (05 May 2015 - 11:56 PM) http://www.msn.com/e...d=HPDHP#image=4
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 02:35 PM) They are going to fry Brady.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 02:36 PM) Not only caught cheating but also did not cooperate with investigators.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 05:04 PM) Messi goat
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:11 PM) LETS GO RANGERS
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:11 PM) FIRE RAUL
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:29 PM) FUCK THE RANGERS
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:30 PM) Holtby messi status
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:18 PM) Did you say Raul??

Tomlinson: Rex Ryan joked about punching Bill Belichick 'in the face'

Patriots-Jets is Thursday night and while the enduring image of that rivalry may be last Thanksgiving's buttfumble, the matchup is usually much more competitive than that holiday shellacking was. In fact, Rex Ryan's teams usually square off against New England pretty well. And on NFL Network recently, former Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson gave us some insight into one of Rex's motivational tactics.

Rex, per LT, once fired up the team by saying he would "set the tempo" by walking up to Bill Belichick and "punch[ing] him in the face."

"We were playing the Patriots one time," Tomlinson recalled. "As I mentioned, Rex is a master motivator, and it was going to be a big game, a heated rivalry game. Rex got in front [of] us and he said, 'I'm going to set the tempo today, I'm going to set the tempo when I meet Bill Belichick in the center of the field. I'm going to start it off and punch him in the face.'

"We loved that, I loved that from Rex."

Rex was joking. We think. Tomlinson was laughing about the story and obviously Rex was just looking to fire his crew up. But it's certainly a story that calls for a double take and confirmation.

"Yeah, he was motivating his guys and wanted to jump it off," Tomlinson said laughing. "We won [the game]."

In Tomlinson's discussion of Rex on NFLN he routinely mentions that Ryan is a "master motivator," but there's an interesting line that Ryan toes. Does his braggadocio cross into excessive chatter? Or do his players appreciate him covering up their flaws and concerns in public by routinely spouting off?

And is there some concern about having to back up the claims? The answer to the last question, according to Tomlinson, is often "yes."

"That was part of Rex growing up as a first-year coach, as a first-time head coach," Tomlinson said of Rex's infamous guarantees. "He didn't know obviously all of the things that need to happen as a head coach, and some things you can say and some things you cannot say. I credit that to him being a young coach, but absolutely there were times where we had to back up what Rex Ryan said. A couple of years he came out and said we were going to win a championship.

"We didn't really like that but as players we had to back it up."

The great part about Rex Ryan as a coach is he's got his players backs. Look no further than Mark Sanchez to get an idea of how far Rex will go to cover someone's hide. But the bad part about Rex is that he's spent considerable time with his mouth writing checks that his butt can't cash.

Rex has toned down his act a significant amount since his early days. Maybe that's because of concerns over his job or maybe he started learning lessons about what happens when you guarantee something and it doesn't happen.

The guess here is that he isn't long for New York -- though starting 1-0 isn't a bad way to shake off the critics -- but that he'll eventually end up getting a shot to run another team. Two AFC Championship Game appearances will do that for you. And it'll be fascinating to see how Rex approaches his players and the media in his eventual second go-round based off of what he learned at his current spot.

In the meantime Belichick should probably be careful at midfield on Thursday.
