Jets Info

  • What is your favorite Jets related memory?
    Super Bowl III
  • Where you alive for Super Bowl III?
    Yes
  1. +1. Forte's playing most partly because Powell's big contribution the last few years is pass receiving, and Forte does that very well. Another reason is that Forte has been one of the league's best backs for the past few years, Powell has been one of the league's best substitute/situational backs the last few years, so guess who gets more touches? A third reason is that it is hard to take a man out when he is averaging 130 yards a game for you. I'm sure Powell's share of touches will increase as the season progresses.
  2. I think Parcells took over offensive play calling from Sean Payton for awhile when they were with the Giants. And didn't Mangini lose his playcalling ability on defense for awhile when he was with the Patriots? It's not the end of the world for a coordinator. Obviously, it's not a good day for him when it happens, though.
  3. I think Bowles went for the 1 point conversion because if we missed the two point conversion it would have given Buffalo momentum. The Jets had just nailed the game down, Bowles said just kick the extra point as usual and let the Bills try to generate their own momentum, let's not help them.
  4. Didn't Peyton Manning have the same rap? He started off something like 0-6 in playoff games and people were writing him off as a great regular season QB but a zero in the playoffs.
  5. The two raps on Dalton is that his arm is not particularly strong and he craps up in money games. As he matures, his less-than-cannon arm is being compensated by consistent accuracy and all he has to do is win a few playoff games to get rid of the second whammy. Couple that with the fact that he's got some fast, good receivers who will go get the ball on the close ones and it equals dangerous.
  6. Lost it at home, too. The place where you are supposed to have the edge.
  7. Jets fans car go ablaze minutes before the kickoff of the first game. A harbinger of the 2016 season?
  8. Congratulations Larz. A real plus in Larz' captaincy is that when the Jets lose, he'll be able to report all the various conspiracy theories as to why.
  9. I couldn't agree more. Just because someone had a bad side to them is no reason not to honor them for their good achievements. That's why I'm going to that Joe Paterno tribute at Penn State this month. Also, next July I'll be heading over to Dovia di Predappio, Italy, for their annual Trains Must Run On Time Festival honoring the town's favorite son, Benito Mussolini, and his trailblazing work in the field of transportation punctuality.
  10. Just to play Devil's Advocate, is it the responsibility of the website to keep possibly private medical information private? I mean the employee of the hospital might be in trouble if they find out he told anyone, but is it the legal responsibility of the website not to print information they were given by someone who was possibly violating his profession's code of ethics? The website is not part of the medical profession. Of course, as a privately owned website the management has the option of rejecting any post for any reason at all. Still, is the website hiding this info, (if it's accurate), just to be nice guys who want to respect a player's privacy, or is the website somehow legally obligated not to disclose this info?
  11. As a matter of fact, IK did receive a nice bouquet of flowers with a check for $1 Million in the middle, courtesy Ryan Fitz.
  12. Say, whatever happened to that poster who said he hates it when anybody posts that he has a friend who heard something, but in this case the poster had a buddy who was an intern with the Jets and it was going around the front office that Fitz and the Jets had agreed on a deal and Fitz was coming in to sign yesterday, 9AM. Anyone know anything about that?
  13. Well, we signed Mo Wilkerson so any plans Fitz had that involved the Jets having lots of extra cash because they won't be able to sign Mo just went right out the window. Not that the Jets were going to pay Fitz more anyway-they're already beating any other offers Fitz might have had.
  14. So you just picked two games out of 12 and decided to represent that as the whole season? The things you mention even out for every QB during the season. Fact is that Fitz had Andre Johnson on the team and the team still didn't get that much out of the passing game. Fitz' year in 2014 was a case study of a mediocre QB trying to hold onto his starting status by his fingernails. And you point to that year as a "good year"? I don't.
  15. The Jets have given Fitzpatrick the best offer by far that he has received. Take it or get lost, Fitz.
