Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:32 PM) still need another WR
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:33 PM) so i bet powell barely gets any touches this year and goodson gets cut
azjetfan Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:34 PM) Goodson is as good as gone.
azjetfan Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:34 PM) With all his legal issues and coming off injury he is done. Possibly even in the NFL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:39 PM) Powell is average anyways.

Per source, Chris Johnson's two-year deal has a base value of $8 million, with another $1 million available in incentives based on yardage.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:40 PM) He does a lot of things well, but isn't talented enough. Johnson has breakaway ability still and Ivory is man beast running the football
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 03:41 PM) We will get another WR in the draft. Even in round 2 you can get a starting WR
azjetfan Icon : (16 April 2014 - 04:09 PM) I am still standing by my CB in the first round and WR in the second prediction
santana Icon : (16 April 2014 - 05:19 PM) The title race is bale
azjetfan Icon : (16 April 2014 - 05:34 PM) Sidney rice coming in for a visit
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 05:49 PM) I think the Jets are getting themselves ready to draft best player available
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 05:49 PM) Last year they stuck to their board
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 06:27 PM) if they sign him I think that means they look to take a CB round 1
2JBallar01 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 06:32 PM) “@AdamSchefter: RB Chris Johnson's 2-year deal with Jets has a team option in it for year two. Jets have option to pick up year two at $4M in February 2015.”
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 06:51 PM) @AlbertBreer 2m
Sidney Rice has agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a one-year deal, per source.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 06:55 PM) There is really only 2 CBs worth taking at 18
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 06:56 PM) I rather get a offensive playmaker
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 06:58 PM) LaMont Jordan was 34
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 06:59 PM) liar
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 07:05 PM) He wore #34 when he played for the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 07:05 PM) I should know I met him at an event in his last year with the JETS before he went to Oakland
ganggreen2003 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 07:05 PM) GFYS 0099 you shit talker
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 07:06 PM) http://www.nydailyne...entry-1.1758342
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 07:06 PM) there's no reason we can't have someone off this site on that list too
azjetfan Icon : (16 April 2014 - 07:08 PM) Rice resigned with Seattle
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 April 2014 - 07:08 PM) did you scare him into going to Oakland?
Chaos Icon : (16 April 2014 - 08:18 PM) unfortunately those sites are too much bigger than our
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 April 2014 - 10:51 PM) WOOOO
santana Icon : (16 April 2014 - 11:01 PM) I'm sure it's possible but this isn't a blog site as much as its a login and yell about the jets site

:hysterical: :hysterical: :hysterical: :hysterical: :hysterical:



No one not on the Jets’ payroll expected this year’s team to be where it is a week before Thanksgiving. The thought entering the season was the Jets had as much of a chance of making it to January as 90-degree temperatures.
But a funny thing happened on the way to rebuilding and irrelevancy — the Jets figured out a way to win five games, even if it was not always pretty, and mediocrity found a home in the AFC. All of this has the Jets fighting for the No. 6 seed with six games remaining in the season … and has us wondering “What if?”
You don’t have to be Vince Lombardi to diagnose the two biggest issues on this team — the play of rookie quarterback Geno Smith and a suspect secondary that can’t stop the deep ball.
So what if two players who were key figures on the Jets over coach Rex Ryan’s first four seasons were playing for the team this year? We’re talking about quarterback Mark Sanchez and cornerback Darrelle Revis. How much better would this team be with those two still in the starting lineup?
I suspect it would be significantly better — to the point where we would be talking about whether the Jets could overtake the Patriots and win the division, not just fight for a wild-card spot.
The loss of Revis and Sanchez did not seem like as much of a big deal at the beginning of the year when everyone figured the Jets would be rebuilding. Two rookies replaced them — first-round pick Dee Milliner at cornerback and Smith at quarterback. You figured the Jets would live with the growing pains of the two players on the way to a 4-12 or 5-11 season and then the two would be better down the road because of this experience.
But now we’re talking about a possible playoff berth. Suddenly growing pains have turned into migraines for Jets fans and coaches. It has become evident Smith and Milliner are not ready yet.
Smith has been a turnover machine. The Jets have 21 turnovers as a team — 20 of them from Smith. He has 16 interceptions and four fumbles. Now, I know Sanchez is not the poster boy for ball security. He had 26 turnovers in each of the last two years. But I truly believe Sanchez would have flourished in Marty Mornhinweg’s West Coast offense this season. But Ryan flushed any chance we would have of seeing that when he chased the Snoopy Trophy in August and Sanchez suffered a season-ending shoulder injury.
Would Sanchez have had a four-turnover game as Smith did on Sunday? Probably. But it’s unlikely he already would have two of those this season. He also would have thrown more touchdowns. Smith has just eight. People forget Sanchez had 52 turnovers in 2011 and ’12, but he also had 45 touchdowns over those two seasons.
Even the most ardent Sanchez detractors would have to admit if he was healthy and the backup to Smith right now instead of Matt Simms, you would think he would be a better option than Smith.
As for Revis, this is not about whether he is worth $16 million. It is clear the Jets were not going to pay that. But he was still under contract for this season. The Jets could have held onto him and then picked up a compensatory pick if he left as a free agent this offseason.
At the time of the trade, the 2013 season did not even seem like a consideration. This was about 2014 and beyond. But if the Jets had known they could contend this season, wouldn’t it have been worth considering keeping him?
You can argue the first-round pick the Jets received from Tampa Bay was worth it. The team took defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson with that pick, 13th overall, and he is a Rookie of the Year candidate. But I would argue the Jets could have taken Richardson with their own pick, No. 9 overall, instead of Milliner if they still had Revis.
Without Revis, the secondary has given up 10 passes of 40 yards or more, tied for fourth-most in the NFL. Antonio Cromartie’s play has dropped off dramatically from last season. Meanwhile, Revis, while admitting he was not himself early in the year after knee surgery, is rated as the No. 1 cornerback in football by the website Pro Football Focus. Milliner is 94th and Cromartie is 99th .
Ryan sounded like a man without any solutions to his team’s problems on Monday.
“We have to protect the football better, first and foremost on offense and it hasn’t [happened],” Ryan said. “I get it, I know it doesn’t look like that we’re trying that way. We’re trying desperately to see that this happens. We’re trying desperately to see that the ball doesn’t get thrown over our head and yet it’s pretty obvious we still have a long way to go.”
Deep down, Ryan has to know the solution to these problems were two guys who were in his locker room just a few months ago.
