ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) 2nd and 3rd stringers making the team had something to prove and even our 2nd stringers got owned so yes Im very concerned. The first stringers need breaks and also if some of them get injured they need to step up. So no after this performance start to finish Im very concerned

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Whos ready for the season!!? WOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2014 - 11:54 AM) Hill has been cut
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 August 2014 - 01:24 PM) Who wants to take bets he ends up in NE
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:18 PM) We'll I guess you guys are fools then in thinking im a fool for being concerned. Do any of you even know that in 2013 the Jets gave up the most passing yards in the franchise since 1986? And our secondary right now is worse than last year right now. To not be concerned is utterly foolish.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:19 PM) Unless our d-line has a monstrous year odds are the team will be eaten up in the pass. Every team will game plan to exploit the pass this year.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:56 PM) Patterson got cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:24 PM) Patterson must have been a huge cancer to get cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:26 PM) is there a midseason draft? we need a DB!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) Our week 1 starting CBs will be Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls... wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) interesting that Simms and Boyd were released
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 04:00 PM) No more McIntyre
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:20 PM) Pretty sure some of these cuts like Simms and McIntyre were made for removing some more cap space to try to find some decent corners and maybe another reliable wr. Possibly get some players cheap. I'd say the current 53 roster will change a good bit in the next week.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:23 PM) I just hope Geno doesn't get hurt or we are horse f*cked. Vick sure as hell can't stay healthy for a full season. I guess the FO could also be think of picking up an old vet cut as 3rd qb. Simms is ok but I'd never trust him to win a regular season game if he was put in.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:25 PM) Anyway it's going yo be an interesting week.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) I doubt it was about freeing up money, considering we are way under. Like more than $20 mil, way more than enough to find some vet minimum CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:19 PM) it's more about the roster numbers. McIntyre was replaced by rookies. IK showed flashes when he played
bleedsgreen Icon : (31 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) McIntyre is a shock to me he was a solid backup and made some big plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) 1 week till we are 1-0
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) we need to annihilate the GAYders
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:28 PM) We claimed McFadden from the Browns. Knows the system should be able to contribute right away
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:29 PM) Watching the Browns game now. Playing all three CB spots. Looks OK. A little grabby although he has not been called for it
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:30 PM) Might be a little aggressive and get burnt over top
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 10:26 PM) FIRE IDZIK

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:17 PM) The Jets are fucked at CB, signing some bums now. We need Milliner to get healthy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:20 PM) We have signed CB Phillip Adams
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) The Gayders are playing Derek Carr against the JETS

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.

Don't change it. If the Native Americans don't like it, they can get the hell out of our country.

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.
