  1. And WHY is the FBI chasing down Brady's jersey???.... is this an ISIS/ISIL plot???
  2. http://www.foxsports.com/nfl/story/fbi-director-james-comey-admits-under-oath-that-he-hates-the-patriots-032017?sf64460895=1 FBI director James Comey testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Monday, answering a number of questions regarding a range of topics, including Russia, the Presidential election and wiretapping. But during the lengthy hearing, Comey found a way to express his dislike for the New England Patriots as a metaphor while answering a question on why Russia might have aided Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton’s chances during the 2016 election. “I hate the New England Patriots,” Comey said. “No matter who they play, I’d like them to lose. And I’m at the same time rooting against the Patriots and hoping their opponent beat them because there’s only two teams on the field.”
  3. As one ready for retirement - I salute you!!!!
  4. I would not be surprised if Revis will be offered his $6M guaranteed 2017 money to come back (and not a penny more) and be given the chance to play safety. It's money that the Jets will pay anyway, so this is really a test to see if Revis really wants to play for the Jets. If in the preseason the Jets don't see a fit for him at safety, they can still cut him and designate him a post-June cut (and still pay the guaranteed money they would have paid anyway). My bet - the Jets really do not want him back and even if offered, he won't accept the guaranteed-only money and will look elsewhere; hopefully getting a decent contract with another team to offset the $6M in guaranteed money owed by the Jets. And as far as wanting to be treated with class - Hey!, Mr. Holdout - that door swings both ways....loved your business decision (non) tackles and your four passes defensed this year!
  5. Aside from DeSean Jackson at about the same price as Marshall, I would rather be interested in Alshon Jeffery at 11.9M/yr ** IF** the Jets wants to go young and elite at WR. Otherwise look for a trade or draft. Relative to Marshall, with Jeffery you're talking a $4.4M uplift at a key position and given the (it better happen) release of under performing vets, the Jets can afford this.
  6. FWIW - the Jets should be able to find a younger, replacement veteran WR for $7.5/year. Take your pick from this list: http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/free-agents/wide-receiver/
  7. When was the last time you saw him dive for a ball?....all I see is a half-hearted stick the hand out effort.
  8. It's blindingly obvious Revis isn't a quality corner now.... so if any of this talk about moving him to safety is real, why not do it now and find out if he can play the position? Personally I think he'd be great at this and if he wants to prove his continuing value, he'll go all out to make it work. While I'm at it, I think Pryor should be moved to linebacker. With the D-line doing a great job stopping the run (first in the NFL last I looked) we need cover LBs that can tackle and he'd be great at that.
  9. And for what it is worth, I cancelled my NFL Sunday Ticket with DirecTV - first time in the existence of it. I did it for many reasons (all eloquently stated in these posts), but number one being the NFL won't make changes until they start losing revenue and the players won't change until the salary cap diminishes and they get paid less. Then, we will see real change. In the meantime I have NFL Game Pass (really bought to watch pre-season games), which won't let me see the games until they are over and even then I chose not to watch many, if any, games during the week.
  10. Then it is a good news (Clady is Pro Bowl again) vs. bad news....Mauldin isn't what we were hoping for....???
  11. Where is Lorenzo Mauldin?...this was supposed to be his break out year and I have not heard a single thing about him so far in camp?
  12. You have to give credit to the Pats (I'm serious)...they structured Brady's 2-year contact so he only earns (annual salary) $1M....so missing the first 4 games only costs him $250K (only...I wish I had $250K)...the rest is in signing bonus ($28M - guaranteed) which is not subject to the suspension....cleaver.... and totally legal....you'd think they might have anticipated the suspension?
  13. Prayers going out to you and your wife. Optimism in this situation is real because my friend has had cancer multiple times and just announced she is cancer free for the first time in a loooonnnggg time!
  14. Remembering Buddy: I'm an old time Jet fan and went to the practices at Hofstra (when they were there) where I could ride my bike to from where I lived in Merrick, LI. I didn't know who he was at the time (but it was Buddy) and while the other coaches would speak to their units, Buddy would yell so loud you could hear him from way across the field. It was kind of scary! One memorable quote I heard him yell was: "Number 80!!! Pro Bowl my a$$". Number 80 was John Elliott, Pro Bowl defensive tackle. Buddy could care less who you were if you weren't doing your job...RIP Buddy And oh yeah....these two little kids we saw running around the field, and we were wondering who they were....it was Rex and Rob...LOL...
