ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 02:34 PM) He ain't wearing 28
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:34 PM) Well considering they already retired #28 in honor of Curtis Martin, I don't see Johnson wearing #28.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:35 PM) Kind of defeats the purpose of retiring a number.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:39 PM) But I know he better not wear LaMont Jordan's number. Or I'll be pissed.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 02:40 PM) Snell
santana Icon : (Today, 02:41 PM) The title race is real
Chaos Icon : (Today, 02:42 PM) Jordan...what number was he? it was 30sometihng
Chaos Icon : (Today, 02:43 PM) tanaka had a great game today. gave up 2 hits due to bunts. 10K
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:48 PM) Jordan was #34 with the Jets.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:03 PM) Tanaka is looking like a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Jets added Vick, Chris Johnson, and Eric Decker to the offense.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) And this draft is loaded at the offensive skill positions
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Hopefully we can get anohter starting WR and starting TE in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) Our offense could be much better than last year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) can't get much worse than what it's been the last 2 years
santana Icon : (Today, 03:22 PM) Very cool
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 03:24 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:32 PM) still need another WR
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:33 PM) so i bet powell barely gets any touches this year and goodson gets cut
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:34 PM) Goodson is as good as gone.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:34 PM) With all his legal issues and coming off injury he is done. Possibly even in the NFL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:39 PM) Powell is average anyways.
Chaos Icon : (Today, 03:39 PM) @ProFootballTalk 5m

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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 03:41 PM) We will get another WR in the draft. Even in round 2 you can get a starting WR
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 04:09 PM) I am still standing by my CB in the first round and WR in the second prediction
santana Icon : (Today, 05:19 PM) The title race is bale
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 05:34 PM) Sidney rice coming in for a visit
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:49 PM) I think the Jets are getting themselves ready to draft best player available
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:49 PM) Last year they stuck to their board
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 06:27 PM) if they sign him I think that means they look to take a CB round 1
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 06:51 PM) @AlbertBreer 2m
Sidney Rice has agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a one-year deal, per source.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:55 PM) There is really only 2 CBs worth taking at 18
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:56 PM) I rather get a offensive playmaker

Former New York Jets general manager Mike Tannebaum was fired by the team following the 2012 season after the Jets finished the year 6-10. Tannenbaum, who had been with the team since 1997 and had served as the Jets general manager since 2006, talked on Wednesday about some of the mistakes he made in New York -- and he said one of those mistakes was acquiring Tim Tebow.

"Obviously we made a couple mistakes -- trading for Tim Tebow most notably. But I would say beyond that, but we [could have done a better job with the bottom of our roster], especially toward the end," Tannenbaum said on CBS Sports Radio's Damon Amendolara Show.

The Jets traded a fourth- and sixth-round pick to the Broncos for Tebow in March 2012. Don't worry though Tebow fans, Tannenbaum didn't blame everything on the quarterback who ended up only throwing eight passes in his Jets career.

"I think some of the mistakes made were from the bottom end of our roster up," Tannenbaum said. "So when you lose guys like Jim Leonhard or Danny Woodhead or Jerricho Cotchery, it affects a lot of things -- not just what they do on the field, but what they do in the locker room."

Anyway, let's get back to Tebow. Even though Tannebaum called his acquisition a mistake, the former Jets general manager said he could envision Tebow making his way back into the NFL.

"Tim obviously didn't play well in the preseason with New England, but he's a guy (who's) incredibly passionate about his career," Tannenbaum said. "I would never bet against Tim. We used to have an expression that Tim’s the type of guy who's either going to be successful or die trying. His relentlessness and passion -- I would think he'll get another opportunity."

Tebow seems to feel the same way. When he was hired by ESPN in December to serve as a college football analyst for the SEC Network, Tebow made it clear that he was going to "continue to pursue his dream of playing quarterback in the NFL."

If any general manager out there is thinking about signing him, just remember, Tebow only wins: he has as many playoff wins with the Broncos as Peyton Manning does, although that could change on Sunday.

I'll give him credit for the simple fact that he manned up and said outright it was a mistake, but it's not going to change that miserable season the Jets had where even though we were 6-10, we were considered probably the most embarrassing team in the NFL.

I'm sure tim tebow was a complete idiot in practice. he probably had issues grasping the offense and even practicing properly. Tebow probably has larger issues when it comes to being on a pro team besides his delivery and mechanics. Jets probably realized this after a couple practices in and went oh shit.. this guy sucks how did denver manage to start him.
