bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 06:44 PM) Unfucking believable
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) I can't wait to hear this post-game presser by Rex
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) I hope he rips Marty a new asshole
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) yeah cause Rex has perfectly coached many a games
canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) morningwheeg what an idiot....hope re4x throws him under the bus during the presser
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) you want the NFL to say sorry and you want Morningwig canned. You're a clown
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 06:45 PM) Gotta give credit to greenbay. That's a good football team
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) f*** an apology. It's not going to change anything in the standings which is what matters at the end of the season.
FlyHiJets Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) definitely reminds me of AFC Championship in Denver
canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:46 PM) marty ranks up there with bittfumble
canuckfan Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) buttfumble
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) The should have made sure he knew who was calling the time out. Hell Rex was on his right and Marty was on his left.
mgjetman Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) Getting lazy with a minute 50 on the clock before half was the nail in the coffin.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:48 PM) The ref
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:49 PM) There is plenty of blame to spread around. No team should lose a 17 point lead anyway.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:50 PM) DUDS - Miliner and Marty
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:50 PM) BRUTAL LOSS
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:52 PM) I really don't blame Marty because it's the refs job to make sure he sees who is calling the timeout. Plus the ball had already been snapped before he even noticed somebody was calling a TO.
mgjetman Icon : (Yesterday, 06:53 PM) Just gave that game away. WTH!!!
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:54 PM) He didn't even blow the whistle until Geno already had dropped back to pass. The play was already well underway.
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 07:03 PM) I heard it when the ball was already in the air
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) but it shouldn't of come down to that TO blunder
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) we did give up a 18 point lead
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) so we fucked up and lost
bleedsgreen Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) True
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) time to get ready for MNF
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) Well it sucks when you start to feel the jets are going to lose the game them selves
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) the Vick play worthless
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) that run on 3rd and 5 worthless
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 07:09 PM) chris Johnson also I don't know what his numbers were but ivory seemed to be a better back
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:13 PM) Marty just picks the worse time to call those wildcat plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:13 PM) they are drive killers
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:27 PM) Problem is the corners. We knew this before the start of the season. I was amazed at how well they did last week and the first half but eventually the weakness showed
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:28 PM) The corner positions will be addressed next year. Technically we are still in a rebuilding phase.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:39 PM) we did go toe to toe against a SB contender and we really shouldn't be heartbroken but if you call yourself a JETS fan and aren't a little pissed over a W that we had in our control then you need to go and hand in your JETS gear ... I'm looking at you 115
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:24 PM) 18 penalties in 2 games
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:25 PM) unacceptable
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:27 PM) Geno dropped from #1 to #28 in TOTAL QBR
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) Cutler just got popped right in the chest
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:11 PM) that was a squared up right in the middle of the chest hit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:13 PM) nice one handed catch by Marshall
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:06 PM) NFL rules state that only the head coach can call a timeout on the sidelines…

Except in Green Bay where anybody up to the third row can call a timeout.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 10:06 PM) I love NFL memes
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 PM) Well I will be at the game next Monday night
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:30 PM) So I will be doing everything I can to help our team win!!

Brandon Stokley retires: Ex-Broncos receiver ends 15-year NFL career
By Mike Klis
The Denver Post
POSTED: 12/26/2013 03:59:14 PM


During a practice with the Baltimore Ravens this year, Brandon Stokley made a self-deprecating observation about his NFL career.

"You know, there's nobody who has played as long as me who has caught as few balls as me," Stokley said with a laugh to his receivers coach Jim Hostler.

There's a compliment in there, somewhere.

Start with only 18 NFL receivers have made it through 15 seasons. As usual, Stokley's instincts were impeccable. His 397 catches are easily the fewest of the group 160 less than No. 17 Troy Brown's 557.

Stokley won't catch up. The former Broncos slot receiver has played his last game. After talking it over with Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome three weeks ago, Stokley knew he was finished playing.

Placed on season-ending injured reserve with his latest concussion, Stokley's retirement will become official when the Ravens' season ends. He no doubt could have played again next year, as dependable slot receivers are in short supply.

But Stokley is one of the few who is retiring on his terms.

"I'm glad I played this year because now I know I'm done," Stokley said Thursday in the living room of his Castle Rock home. "Had I not played this year I would have always felt I could have kept playing. I still know I can play but my body just can't go through it anymore."

A string of injuries was the reason why Stokley doesn't have the career stats of the other 15-year receivers. Character, the football intelligence of a coach's son, a team-above-self attitude and the ability to make the clutch catch on third down were why Stokley was always in demand.

"I think Brandon is the best teammate I've ever had," said Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who played with Stokley in Indianapolis from 2003-06 and again with the Broncos in 2012. "He's a guy you want on your team in your corner. Fifteen years as a slot receiver in the NFL, going across the middle, taking hits, it's almost unheard of."

The last hit was delivered by Minnesota linebacker Chad Greenway. It was hardly a big hit, which Newsome and Stokley took as a sign. In the fourth quarter of the Ravens' 29-26 win on Dec. 8, Stokley caught a 2-yard pass from Joe Flacco along the sideline. Greenway hit him around the chest, not the head. Stokley's head didn't hit the ground but he suffered a concussion anyway.

It's been reported that it was Stokley's 13th concussion, although he doesn't think it was that many.

"I don't know how you describe a concussion," he said.

What medical science has determined with cumulative concussions is it takes less impact on each subsequent hit to cause the next brain injury. Three weeks after getting tackled by Greenway, Stokley still has to monitor his exertion.

He sat on his couch Thursday with his son Cameron between him and wife Lana while Carson was running to and fro in the living room that offered a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains.

"Of course you worry about it but I never wanted to be the reason why he stopped playing," Lana said. "We would talk. But I knew he would know when it was time to stop playing. I just didn't want him to have any regrets."

Said Stokley: "If in 30 years I'm feeling fine and I would have stopped playing football four or five years ago it would have been, 'Why did I stop?' You can't predict the future. So I was all in with football until I knew it was time for me to stop playing."

He's won two Super Bowl rings with Baltimore in 2000 and Indianapolis in 2006. And of those 397 catches, 160 came on third down, 133 for first downs an incredible 83.1 percent conversion rate.

"I guarantee you every quarterback he's played with, whether (Trent) Dilfer or (Jay) Cutler all the guys would tell you how great a teammate and how thankful they were that he was in the slot," Manning said, "because you knew he was going to get open on a critical third down and make that big catch."

Stokley said his immediate retirement plans were to serve as Lana's personnel assistant and help raise their sons Cameron and Carson.

Yeah this was a funny quote. That said the man has nothing to complain about. Few have long careers in the NFL so whether he caught few footballs or a lot he succeeded where few have with a long career.
