ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:18 PM) know why the Seaw
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:18 PM) haw
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:19 PM) damn pad
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:20 PM) ??
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:20 PM) OOOOK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:20 PM) Anyway go Hawks
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:21 PM) Why the Seahawks aren't very good this year. They have 22 or 24 undrafted players on their roster because they had to let hallf or over half of their team go from last year because of having to pay so much to certain star players
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:21 PM) No team with that many undrafted players on the roster is going to be good
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:22 PM) I'm talking about the defense
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:22 PM) So they have an excuse
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:22 PM) How many starters are back from last year?
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:23 PM) They had to let defensive players go too. And that's why they refused to pay Chancellor. They don't have the money
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:24 PM) Most of the Defense is back from last season.. who besides the 2nd CB do they not have?
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:24 PM) I don't know how many starters. I didn't look through the whole active roster from last year to this year. But I know they let a good many starters go too
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:25 PM) Anyway we need them to win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:26 PM) it puts us in a 4 way tie for the WC
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:26 PM) Maybe Hou can win the division
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:26 PM) They had to let a corner and safety go from the defense and some dline from the starting line up. And some players on the online too
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:27 PM) That's why Russel isn't getting protection and Lynch is having a down year
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:28 PM) Yeah but you need to chr
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:29 PM) check my list of tiebreakers we are down in division and conference games. If the Jets don't beat the Bills and win most of the conference games no playoffs
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:31 PM) Plus we are down in schedule strength to everyone in the hunt for the playoffs except Houston but they have the win and tiebreaker against the Jets
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:32 PM) Oh and also the Bills are below us in schedule strength but have a win against us so have tiebreaker for now
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:33 PM) Chiefs have the easy schedule in the league got the rest of the season so chances of them not getting in are slim
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:35 PM) Chiefs and Stelers are in the drivers seat
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:36 PM) Right but there is a lot of games to go still
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:36 PM) who knows maybe we beat Tenn NYG Dal and Buf
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:36 PM) 10-6?? Maybe
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:36 PM) 1 game at a time I agree
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:36 PM) KC and Oakland have to play each other twice
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:38 PM) Pitt Still has to play Cinn and Denver
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:39 PM) Who they may beat.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:41 PM) We just need Sea to win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:41 PM) Game over
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:41 PM) Hawks win
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:42 PM) Well if they make the PAT
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:42 PM) My bad I thought Pitt had 0 timeouts left
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:46 PM) I don't trust Denver against any good team with their backup qb in. I except the Chiefs to overtake the division. They really don't trust him either since an injured Manning is the #2 qb. He barely won last week
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:47 PM) Ben is hurt now
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:47 PM) Don't think its anything big tho
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 07:48 PM) But Steelers losing today and if they lose against the Bengals would help
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 07:55 PM) Ben has a possible concussion
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:08 PM) And Pitt plays Indy next week
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:09 PM) If Pittsburgh lose it help if indy lose Houston might be in 1st and have a tie breaker over indy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:16 PM) I just can't wait for Sunday. Me and my brother are going to the game. He's a giants fan. So somebody is going home mad

Posted 27 May 2014 - 10:30 AM


The next phase of the New York Jets' offseason begins Tuesday -- organized team activities. Or, as we like to call them in the biz, OTAs. Five questions facing the Jets as they start three weeks of practices before the mandatory minicamp:

Smith1. Can Geno Smith hold off Michael Vick? We already know how Vick feels about the subject, as he stated his belief that Smith will be the opening-day quarterback. Vick probably is right, but Smith needs to eliminate any doubts. He can start by building off his promising finish to last season, which means taking control of the offense in OTAs. Smith has impressed teammates with his improved command of the offense, but it's one thing to be that way in a walk-through and quite another to demonstrate it against a live defense.

2. Is Eric Decker worth the money? The Jets, no longer big spenders in free agency, made an exception for Decker, giving him a five-year, $36 million contract. For that kind of loot, they expect him to be more than a nice No. 2 wide receiver. This could be culture shock for Decker, who goes from Peyton Manning to Smith/Vick. Then again, he caught passes from Tim Tebow in 2011, so he should be prepared for anything.

Amaro3. Can Jace Amaro find an immediate niche? The Jets didn't use a lot of two-tight-end packages last season, but that could change with Amaro joining incumbent Jeff Cumberland at the position. The second-round pick is a big dude (6-foot-5, 265 pounds) with the ability to basically line up as a wide receiver. It will be interesting to see how coordinator Marty Mornhinweg incorporates Amaro into the passing attack.

4. Is Calvin Pryor as good as Rex Ryan thinks? Ryan always gushes about his rookies, but he's positively smitten with his first-round pick. He already has compared Pryor to one of the most notorious safeties in history, the hard-hitting Jack Tatum. It will be interesting to see how Ryan juggles Pryor, Dawan Landry and Antonio Allen in the safety rotation -- if there is a rotation. We're talking about three players with similar skill sets -- i.e. strong safety-types.

5. Is it Milliner time? Taking Smith out of the equation, the most improved player on the team has to be cornerback Dee Milliner. If not, the defense will have problems because it's counting on him as the No. 1 cornerback. Milliner has to be the rock in the post-Cromartie/post-Revis era. Last year's top pick, who missed the 2013 off-season because of a shoulder injury, saved a poor rookie year with a strong finish. Now he needs to build on that. Just being on the field, as opposed to rehabbing an injury, will help immensely.
