  • What is your favorite Jets related memory?
    I was sitting in front of Willy Joe at the Meadowlands when he said to Suzy Kolber " I want to Kiss You". I'm sorry, I know the moral majority was outraged but that was the funniest thing ever. We all want to say something and not give a damn, Joe did. Drunk or not , I said that's pretty damn cool.

  1. I was/am a fan of Boomer ever since seeing him live at work during the draft the year Keyshawn was drafted. There is something very real about him in a medium where everything seems fake. A tragedy ... life is so suckily random at times... two seniors who likely never met, die in an instant.
  2. Bizarro twist to story ... Arresting cop had a run in with Vilma in the past ... Cop who arrested Jets' Robby Anderson has checkered past Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson speaks to reporters in the locker room of their training facility in Florham Park, N.J. Anderson has been charged with resisting arrest and obstruction of justice after police say he fought with security officials after being asked to leave a Miami music festival. A Miami Police Department arrest report says 23-year-old Robby Anderson refused an order by a police lieutenant to sit on the ground and pushed the officer and other officials at the Rolling Loud festival Sunday evening, May 7, 2017.

Jets top draft picks Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye work during rookie minicamp Back in March, Lt. Javier Ortiz, who's the police union president, was removed from active duty and stripped of his gun after a judge granted a woman a temporary restraining order against him. According to the report, Ortiz doxxed the woman, and encouraged his Facebook followers to harass her. A county judge later declined to make Ortiz's stay-away ruling permanent. This incident was just the latest on Ortiz's rather troubling resume, the Miami New Times found. In 2009, ex-Jets linebacker Jonathan Vilma filed a complaint against Ortiz where he accused him of going "nuts" at a traffic stop. Vilma said he "waved a gun in his face, screamed at him, and arrested him on false charges that were later dropped." In 2011 at the Ultra Music Festival, 27-year-old Jesse Campodonico was thrown to the ground and tasered by several officers, including Ortiz. Campodonico sued and claimed excessive force. Ultra settled. Here's more from the Miami New Times' findings: The cops on the scene claimed Campodonico was "yelling profanities, and had a strong scent of an alcoholic beverage," and then "took a fighting stance and stated, 'I ain't afraid of you!'" Ortiz wrote the arrest report, as well as a follow-up document called a Response to Resistance Report. He also testified, backing up his claims -- but his fellow cops later provided testimony that conflicted with his own. Then video emerged that someone had shot of the arrest, and the footage proved the events Ortiz depicted in his report could not have happened. A local lawyer later filed a complaint about the alleged act of perjury with the Miami-Dade County State Attorney's Office. The state attorney admitted in writing that Ortiz's documents were full of "inconsistencies," but never prosecuted the union president for wrongdoing. Ortiz was banned from Ultra but later mounted a legal fight for the right to work security at Ultra again. And for back pay for the festivals he'd missed. What Anderson's arrest means for Jets WRs Some thoughts on that. According to the police report obtained by NJ Advance Media, Anderson is accused of "fighting" with security when asked to leave the Rolling Loud Festival. Security asked Anderson to sit on the ground. Anderson refused and "pushed" Ortiz. Security then forced Anderson to the ground where he "continued to fight with police and security." Anderson has been charged with one felony count of resisting arrest with violence, and also obstruction of justice. You can view the complete police report below:
  3. Serious question here. Are there examples in NFL history of college qbs with bad accuracy/ mediocre or uneven college careers who managed to correct their accuracy/ mechanics to the extent that they became outstanding NFL quarterbacks ?
  4. ESPN was a softball interview ... lots of chuckles. MacCagnan sounds like a college freshman his first month on campus... a certain innocent air of optimism. Francesa pushed him a bit more but MacCagnan is boyishly polite and irrepressibly optimistic when recalling "how they let the draft come to them in the second round". Nothing of substance discussed, "open competition this year", "stuck to BAP", explained the poor record last season "we had a Jets franchise record for injuries last year". He detailed the scramble for college free agents at the end of the draft and how it's all worthwhile referring to signing Robbie Anderson last year.
  5. I understand why they did not draft Dalvin Cook, character issues... some purportedly late breaking revelations. We are looking for "character guys" I get it. My issue with that is that Bowles, MacCagnan and Woody are drafting in a bubble set in the 1980's. Kids growing up in this century, who parents actually allow them to play football are growing up in a different world. Not every kid gets to grow up behind a white picket fence. Reading the long profile of Dalvin Cook in SI you get a complete picture of the kid, he's had his issues but my sense is that he is a good kid, tough as nails with elite ball skills.
  6. Scott Frost lives... we are going to convert Davis Webb to safety !
  7. Claiborne as talented as he is, is too injury-prone to be depended on...cornerback needs to be addressed, along with the rest of the long shopping list.
  8. You must be having fun explaining to your son the thinking behind the jets draft picks so far ...
  9. Not this year ... it's a conceptual five year slow rebuild plan, don't rush it...
  10. Grateful that it was not Kizer or Webb. I expect MacCagnan's goal in the absense of finding a viable qb is plan B; build a team strength based on defense alone, and exit quietly in the wild card. It should get him a few more years of employment with Woody in London.
  11. Browning Nagle ?
  12. Maybe angry ... suicidal ?
  13. Kellen Clemens, Genome Smith, Christian Hackenberg... what a friggin tradition of second roundedness.
  14. Cook, Lamp or Samuel would make my Friday night.
