ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 06:05 PM) I'm loving all these additions to the JETS coaching staff
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 06:06 PM) I can't wait to see what Maccagnan does in Free Agency and in the draft

The Jets are hiring Bears nat'l scout Rex Hogan as their director of college scouting. Chicago has released him from his contract
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:40 PM) @AlbertBreer 14m14 minutes ago
The Jets are also hiring Rams scout Brian Heimerdinger to a prominent front-office role. St. Louis let him out of his deal.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:48 PM) Heimerdinger is our director of player personnel now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) That is Mike Heimerdinger's son who used to be our OC in 05
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) hopefully his son isn't as horrible as his pop was at play calling
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 PM) Everyone looks like a bad playcaller when you have no QB and have no talent
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:18 PM) When Heimerdinger was our OC it was when we had a ton of injuries on offense, were down to our 4th or 5th string QB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:42 PM) FIRE HOGAN

azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 05:36 PM) this site has become dismal.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:47 PM) Thanks Obama.
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 January 2015 - 06:49 PM) But really for all of you complaining about the site. What is there to talk about? We have a new GM and HC that we don't know how good or bad they'll be yet. So there really isn't much to talk about with the draft still months away.
azjetfan Icon : (26 January 2015 - 09:59 PM) Even I can't blame Obama :drinks:
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) It could be worse
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:42 PM) we could be Phinzrage
MikeGangGree... Icon : (26 January 2015 - 11:43 PM) We got nothing to talk about
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 09:43 AM) HIRE MR JET
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:17 AM) There are some good OGs available in FA, we have to sign one
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Willie Colon was rated as one of the worst in football last season. So was Winters. Oday shows promise
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 11:18 AM) Orlando Franklin, Mike Iupati, Clint Boling. Should sign one
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 12:34 PM) Franklin or Iupati would be great
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:46 PM) hey reg how did you make out in this storm?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (27 January 2015 - 01:47 PM) we got slammed with snow but the wind didn't knock out our power so I made out pretty unscathed here in RI
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:14 PM) What sucks is that the NFL isn't going to throw the book at those CHEATS even though they may be found GUILTY
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 PM) This place is a GHOST TOWN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:24 AM) Nothing really to talk about in the offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:20 PM) Rex bashed Idzik in a interview today lol
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:21 PM) Says Woody didn't want to fire him but had to because of 4 wins. That Idzik had hidden agendas and a plan that never worked.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:26 PM) I expect FA is going to be busy for us, I think public pressure forces them to make a splash because Maccagnan has to prove hes no Idzik and lose out on most FAs. We also have a lot of holes and could fix some with signings

About The GM;

Terry Bradway never achieved greatness at Kansas City. He had worked for eight years in the Chiefs' front office, three as their director of player personnel. He was promoted to that post after spending five years as the Chiefs' director of college scouting. He also worked for seven years as a scout with the New York Giants and three years as assistant director of player personnel for the Philadelphia/Baltimore Stars of the old USFL.

Rod Graves, Terry Bradway and Billy Kuharich, who shared an apartment, had been hired by general manager Carl Peterson to find players to help the USFL compete with the NFL.

Graves is the Arizona Cardinals' vice president of football operations. The organizations record under Graves is as follows; (1999 6-10), (2000 3-13), (2001 7-9), (2002 5-11) (2003 4-12) and (2004 2-14).

Kuharich would orchestrate the drafting of Ricky Williams at New Orleans. If you all recall, they traded Washington for Ricky Williams for all six of Saints’ picks that year (1-12, 3-71, 4-107, 5-144, 6-179 and 7-218) plus 1st and 3rd-round choices in 2000 that became the 2nd and 64th overall.

Bradway is with the Jets the same guy who gave up 2 first round picks in 2003 for Dewayne Robertson. He could have picked the following TWO players that year... Troy Polamalu SS, Willis McGahee RB, Jordon Gross OT, and Terrance Newman CB. TWO!

He traded a #2 pick in 2004 to an AFC rival Tennessee for Justin McCareins WR., Julius Jones RB was available and so was Igor Oleshansky DT, Tatum Bell RB and Nate Kaeding K.

He gave up a #1 pick in 2005 for TE Doug Jolley to another AFC team …Oakland. The team that dashed our playoff hopes 2 out of 4 years.

He keeps keep trading to AFC rivals......WHY? What about the NFC. Especially Oakland?


About the Coach:

I have always criticized the Herman Edwards' hiring because he lacks certain things a coach needs in order to build a great football team.

1) He had no prior head coaching experience; no offensive or defensive coordinator experience at any level. He was a Defensive Backs Coach from 1996-2000 for Tampa Bay and a defensive backs coach and a scout for the Kansas City Chiefs for six seasons (1990-95).

2) In 1999, he interviewed for a head coaching job in Kansas City he was quoted as saying "A lot of guys have been successful who're not coordinators," Edwards said. "Some guys have talked to me about it, but I prefer the situation I'm in now. I don't have to call plays. I want to run it; that's the situation I'm looking for." source St. Petersburg Times, published January 20, 1999

3) He prefers the 'group hug" approach to coaching and allows his coordinators to make their own decisions. The only problem is because he lacks experience, he does not know how to correct mistakes. This has plagued him each and every year. Who can forget the 6-10 year with Mo Lewis and Marvin Jones using "walkers" to tackle opposing running backs. Meanwhile Paul Hackett was throwing 2-3 yard passes on 3rd and 9. He clearly lacked leadership over his people. Santana Moss returned punts for 2 years before he was utilized in the offense.

4) Clock Management issues cost them 6 games at least in his 4 years. He still has not learned this portion of the game and continue to make the same clock management mistakes. He had problems again last week against Carolina. Who could forget calling a time out before the half and then running 40 seconds off the clock with a running play to Curtis Martin to finish the half. He risked injury to Martin and other players. For what.. a 6 yard gain! His clock management has cost this team 1-2 games per year.

5) One might argue that he has taken a JETS team to the playoffs off and on for 3 years. This was basically the same team that went 12-3 and was one-half away from going to the Super bowl under another head coach.

6) In 2001, Herman went 10-6 and improved the Jets by 1 game from the then 9-7 Al Groh. (2002 9-7), (2003 6-10), (2004 10-6) and (2005 2-7 so far) . His record currently stands at 39-39.

When you said that the defense needed a change, we fired Ted Cottrell. When you said that your offense needed a change, we fired Paul Hackett. When you said you needed help with running the clock and time management, we hired a clock management coach. You said before you just want to run the team and being a coordinator isn't important...well... run the team! We cannot keep hiring people to cover for your your lack of knowledge of game-day management.

You even had the most accurate passer in the league 2 years ago in Chad Pennington and the leagues leading rusher last year in Curtis Martin. You should be lucky to have these players. Because you and Bradway would have never had them in the first place. You guys would have probably drafted more safeties!

You give a 2-5 team that is struggling in every facet of the game an entire week off! You hold light summer camps (shoulder pads & helmets), veterans are given way too much time off in practices and your camp never focuses on the basics of football. INJURIES are related to poor summer camps and winter training programs. Tackling is always an issue with your teams. Hit more at camp! Why are most of the injuries on Offense? You should be managing this issue! This team needs a leader...not a cheerleader! A coach for the player's... not a players' coach!


To The Owner,

Keep your options open for next season. There are plenty of good people in the league that can help this club win a championship. You should be looking for a coach that can prepare your players during the off season. You should be looking for a conservative GM who works with the cards that are dealt him.
