azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:20 PM) Williams the WR from Clemson looks like they are out to get him. He has taken some huge hits
vjdbbq Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:12 AM) We'll take Williams in the first round .
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 10:48 AM) I'd love Howard in the 2nd round if he's still there. I like Williams a lot as well, but I just don't see WR being big enough of a need, and there should be better talent on the board at 6
Jetsfan115 Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:21 PM) Raiders OC Musgrave not expected to return to OAK. what do you think about getting him? he did wonders with the oakland offense this year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:39 PM) Definitely an appealing choice given with his history of progressing Carr. We need someone with a track record of grooming young QBs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (12 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) I want Watson now! after what he did Monday night I'm sold on him at QB. He moved the ball all night on Alabama and after hurts scored that TD he just told his team "Lets end this"
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:31 PM) An Ohio prosecutor says he wants to know what punishment Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones faces from the NFL before deciding how to proceed over Jones' latest arrest, Dan Sewell of the Associated Press reports..

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WKRC-TV he's asking "what is the normal" for a player with multiple offenses and who's been suspended before.

An NFL spokesman said on Thursday that Jones' case is "under review" and declined to comment further.

Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. Authorities say he was so combative he had to be placed in a restraint chair.

Jones says he anticipates the charges will be dismissed.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:32 PM) we wont get watson. he's going 1st overall to the browns
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:06 PM) Is Watson a product of Clemson's staff and supporting cast? Taj Boyd also put up some decent numbers if I remember correctly but he couldn't even make a scout team in the NFL.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) From what I have read (although limited) he is not the highest ranked QB in the draft.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) "No quarterback in this draft -- not Mitch Trubisky, not Watson, not DeShone Kizer -- is considered a sure thing. The folks at Scouts Inc. rank Trubisky, Watson and Kizer as the 21st, 38th and 46th prospects on their big board, respectively." ESPN
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:12 PM) If we can get a decent return for Richardson we may be able to make a move into the mid teens to early 20s if the Brass really likes Watson.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:13 PM) Personally I don't think the jets have a clue on who they will take. We still have to hit FA and manage our roster
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 11:46 PM) Jets to interview Broncos assistant Studesville for OC
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:28 PM) Why? seems like a weird choice
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:29 PM) Leonard Williams replacing Khalil Mack in Pro Bowl
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm not buying Watson, even after that championship game. Dude threw too many picks in his day
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm really curious to see what we get for Richardson, but I have a bad feeling his value is at an all time low between his crap season and bad attitude
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 12:16 AM) I agree. He is a first round talent but a fourth round headache. We will be lucky to get a 2nd
Chadforpresi... Icon : (14 January 2017 - 08:41 AM) Yeah precisely. 2nd rounder would be a huge stretch. 3rd or 4th is more likely
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:51 PM) Seems like a slightly steep price but overall cool with it, he's turned into a good player and is still young. Just needs to stay healthy.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 January 2017 - 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?

US experts: By Susan Heavey
1 hour, 19 minutes ago



BETHESDA, Maryland (Reuters) - The first diet drug aimed at helping the growing number of fat Americans lose weight without seeing a doctor moved one step closer to U.S. approval on Monday after a health advisory panel endorsed the idea.

Called Alli, GlaxoSmithKline's low-dose version of the prescription drug Xenical is generally safe and effective for adults when used for six months, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's advisers said.

The FDA will consider the panelists' advice as it decides whether to allow easier access, but usually follows their recommendations.

If approved, it would be the first proven weight-loss drug to be sold over the counter at a time when two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese.

Panel chairman Dr. Alastair Wood said risks with the drug were low, and people would be better off taking Glaxo's drug than any of the countless, unapproved dietary supplements on the market.

"Is it better to be taking caffeine compounds or this? Probably this," said Wood, a professor of medicine and pharmacology at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.

Company studies showed patients taking Alli lost 1.8 to 2.4 kilograms, or about 4 to 5 pounds, more than those taking a placebo after six months.

Some members voiced concerns about repeated and long-term use.

"I don't think there's been any long-term effectiveness shown," said panelist Dr. Neal Benowitz, a professor of medicine, psychiatry and biopharmaceutical sciences at the University of California in San Francisco.

Dr. Ruth Parker, a professor at Emory University's School of Medicine in Atlanta, said she was concerned about "use and abuse" of the drug among teenagers and others. She added people would be better off focusing on diet and exercise.

Glaxo bought U.S. rights to Xenical from Roche Holding AG last year and hopes to sell a 60-milligram dose of the 120-milligram prescription version. The drug, known generically as orlistat, helps prevent fat from being absorbed by the body.

That process can cause gastrointestinal problems such as oily stools, rectal discharge and excess gas, and about half of all patients experience them.

Glaxo officials told the panelists the lower dose and a low-fat diet reduced side effects.

"There is no magic pill for weight loss, and orlistat is definitely not a magic pill," John Dent, the drugmaker's senior vice president for research and development, said. "Orlistat is a tool that will help people control their calorie intake and modify their diet."

Side effects have helped keep sales of prescription Xenical low, at about $460 million worldwide in 2004.

George Quesnelle, president of GlaxoSmithKline's North American consumer unit, said nonprescription sales could boost that, reaching five to six million Americans each year. The prescription-strength version would remain available.

He did not say when the company expected the FDA's decision, but said he hoped to see the product on store shelves later this year.

Mehta Partners analyst Shaojing Tong said he was skeptical that over-the-counter status would jump-start sales, given the side effects and lack of insurance coverage for nonprescription medicines.

"I don't see how it will revive sales dramatically," Tong said.

Before the panel vote, Glaxo shares rose 1.12 percent, or 56 cents, to close at $50.71 on the New York Stock Exchange, after earlier closing almost unchanged in London.

(Additional reporting by Kim Dixon in Chicago)
Fifteen years ago after an especially disappointing loss to Miami, Esiason, then the Jets' quarterback, was making the seven-mile drive from the Meadowlands back to Manhattan.
While he was slogging through stop-and-go traffic at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, the car next to him was violently rear-ended. The quarterback threw his car into park, hopped out and ran to the woman whose car had been hit. She was wearing, of all things, an Esiason jersey, and was utterly shocked when he tapped on her window to check on her.
"Are you OK?" he said, trying to keep calm. "Are you OK?"
"Boomer? Is that you?" she asked the Good Samaritan, sounding disoriented. "I think I'm OK, but . ... "
But what?
"But you guys sucked."
Welcome to the New York Jets, Tim Tebow.
