Jets 0-2 vs bills this year. Does Rex Ryan survive the year?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (25 November 2014 - 11:34 PM) Man the JETS are a 3 ring circus or American Horror Story: FREAK SHOW!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:45 AM) Jets starting Geno again.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:45 AM) FIRE IDZIK,
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:45 AM) I really hope the JEts completely clean house this offseason and get rid of everyone, it's time.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 AM) We need to keep getting embarrassed every week to ensure that. That is why I don't give a shit about getting destroyed, it makes the team look like more of a joke and forces Woody to make real changes
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:55 AM) Like how do you get blown out by a team that didn't practice while you had 2 weeks to prepare?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:55 AM) That kind of stuff may force Woody to make the big changes and fire everyone
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:55 AM) John Idzik has handled the QB situation terribly. 2 times he pretty much handed the job to his draft pick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 AM) Besides Sheldon Richardson, his drafts have been awful.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 AM) Maybe Woody will clean house and go all out for Jim Harbaugh, that probably won't happen though but it would be a franchise changer.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:07 AM) Harbaugh would be amazing...but because it makes sense it won't be done
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 AM) According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets blocked coach Rex Ryan from talking to Mehta about a bye-week visit to his ailing father, legendary NFL defensive guru Buddy Ryan. Buddy, who rose to prominence as defensive coordinator of the ’85 Bears and then coached the Eagles and Cardinals, is battling cancer.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:52 AM) Mehta interprets the muzzling of Rex Ryan as proof positive that, once the season ends, Ryan will no longer be the team’s head coach. Apparently, the team fears that Rex would become more sympathetic in the eyes of the fan base if he’s dumped by the team at a time when his father is fighting a serious illness.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:05 AM) Mehta is an idiot
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:25 AM) If colt McCoy lights it up do the jets make a move?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:27 AM) I don't even care what they do for a while
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:28 AM) The team is a catastrophe
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:29 AM) I didn't see the game
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:29 AM) I remember the first bills game though I'm guessing it was like that with more sleeping in the end zone
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:32 AM) I'm with 0099...I hope they keep getting destroyed
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 11:33 AM) it's a very Jets-esque move to sign McCoy if he does well
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:53 AM) I think they sign RGIII, Cutler, or Bradford
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 12:10 PM) why not all three
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:11 PM) Knowing this team, I wouldn't put that past them
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:07 PM) RAUL FOR QB
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 02:10 PM) the only real choice
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 02:10 PM) almost uefa time

50 Senators Push Nfl To Change Redskins Name

Fifty Senators send letter pushing NFL to change Redskins name

http://profootballta...-redskins-name/

It’s one thing for a random politician to speak out about the Redskins name or another to muse about the possibility of changing it on a popular national radio and TV show. It’s quite another for 50 members of the United State Senate — FIFTY — to sign a letter to the NFL urging action on the name of the franchise owned by Daniel Snyder.

FIFTY.

Via the New York Times, nearly half of the legislative body wants the name to be changed.

“The NFL can no longer ignore this and perpetuate the use of this name as anything but what it is: a racial slur,” the letter says. “We urge the NFL to formally support a name change for the Washington football team. . . . We urge you and the National Football League to send the same clear message as the NBA did: that racism and bigotry have no place in professional sports.”

How significant is it that so many Senators signed off on the letter?

“Listen, it is hard to get 50 people in this place to agree on anything,” Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) said.

The issue broke, as so many of these issues do, along party lines; all but five of the Senate’s Democrats signed the letter and no Republicans did. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine of Virginia, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, and Mark Pryor of Arkansas abstained.

“The intent of the team’s name has always been to present a strong, positive and respectful image,” the league said in a statement issued to the Times. “The name is not used by the team or the NFL in any other context, though we respect those that view it differently.”

And that’s the heart of the dilemma the NFL currently faces. At some point in the past year, the NFL and the franchise have conceded that reasonable minds may differ on whether the name “Redskins” is a slur. Does the league want one of its teams to carry a name on which a fair debate exists and lingers regarding whether the name represents blatant and open racism?

For the NBA, swift and decisive action was taken in response to comments made privately by Sterling. For the NFL, the problem continues to hide in plain sight.

The best argument in support of change comes from the reality that, if the NFL were forming a team now, there’s no way it ever would be dubbed the “Redskins.” It continues only because of its past. At some point in the future, the present will prevail.


Dan Snyder needs to stop being a pain about this issue and change the name.

Has he given up on trying to bribe the Native-American tribes he visited on his "listening tour"?

It's just a matter of time before that name is finally changed. Now it's only a matter of time before somebody chimes in with that inevitable "shouldn't they be focused on more important things" post.

They could keep the Redskins name, but just change the logo to a sunburned Irishman.

When Goodell runs out of 100$ bills in his bathroom I hope he takes this letter and whipes his ass with it. Politicians need to stay the f*** out of sports.

They will be eventually but Redskin is a derogatory name. Once this battle is won the squeaky wheels will be on the prowl out of boredom.

Hmm perhaps because they are Politicians and should stick to their so called area of expertise (politics). This country is so soft now it makes me sick, maybe we should just rename all teams by color. We can have the blue team, red, yellow, black, white oh wait that'll offend some as well. I realize government is necessary in certain areas of sports, like stadiums, health care ect but I can do away with all the posturing and grandstanding. Funny, the elections are coming up soon, coincidence..? This will be a non topic following November. While the rest of the country is worried about offending people with tattoos, hoodies and team logos I'll be in the other room avoiding the idiots.

The word Chiefs is not exclusive to Native-American culture. The argument can be made that there are tribal chiefs in Africa too for example. Just like with the word "Warriors" is not exclusive to Native-Americans. But even the Kansas City Chiefs have at least changed their logo from a half naked chief running with a tomahawk. To just a arrowhead with the letters K and C in it.

But really if you met a group of Native-American tribal chiefs, what are you going to call them? Chiefs or redskins? I mean if you can't see the difference between those two words then I can't help you.

Oh so it's just because of the elections? Because its not like we were talking about this very issue last year when there was no major national elections that year.

Members Of Congress Urge Redskins To Change Name

No this isn't about "politicians should stick to their so called area of expertise". Whatever the hell that means since it is politicians/elected officials responsibility to address the concerns of ALL its people. Not just the folks who don't feel offended and are tired of political correctness. Because God forbid we take the thoughts and views of other people who we don't know and don't see everyday into consideration. Really why should these tribal organizations and these politicians get involved in this? Keeping a sports team's nickname is MUCH more important than the views of a group of people who were once 100% of the population of this land to now just being 1% of the population. I guess robbing, raping, and murdering their ancestors wasn't enough. Now we have to continue to disrespect them by still having a professional franchise in the year 2014 still called the "Redskins".

Shit, Redskins wasn't even the team's original name. They were called the Braves originally. It was their former owner George Preston Marshall who changed the name from Braves to Redskins. The same George Preston Marshall who BTW was the last NFL owner to integrate his team in the 1960s. And had to be forced to integrate because POLITICIANS in the Kennedy administration used their influence to force him to integrate.

He was the one that said the only reason they're talking about it THIS YEAR was because it's an election year. I just pointed out that this was also a topic of discussion last year. But I'm sure that 1% of Native-American votes these politicians are trying to get is really going to make a big difference on election day. :rolleyes:


I guess one side is pandering to the Native-American vote by trying to get Washington, D.C.'s NFL team to change its name. While the other side is busy talking about presidential birth certificates Obamacare a Hillary/Monica connection Benghazi to motivate their base to get out and vote this year.

The thing I find the most interesting about that P.R. letter, is in the body of the letter they refer to Native-American people as "Native-Americans". Look at the last line of that letter. "We hope you will join us; Native Americans deserve our support." NOT "We hope you will join us; redskins deserve our support."

Olbermann pointed it out on his show. Daniel Snyder and his employees (like Bruce Allen) call the Native-Americans "Native-Americans" and not "redskins". Hmmm, I wonder why? Why doesn't Snyder refer to the Native-Americans he's now trying to buy off as "redskin" or "redskins".

I mean if it's not an offensive word (which he claims it's not), why not call them "redskins" in that letter or when he's talking to the press? I'd love to see Snyder go to these reservations with ESPN cameras and meet the people that live there and call the people he meets there "redskins". Right to their faces in front of the media. Then we'll see how long that name remains after all the backlash. I mean they should be okay with it right? They shouldn't be offended by it.

I think even Snyder knows it's only a matter of time now, considering how much attention this issue has gotten in just the past year. The name will eventually be changed in the next few years. It's inevitable.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.
