  3. If you haven't gotten Josh Gordon yet and he's still on your WW, I would suggest picking him up. The NFLPA has voted on a deal that will raise the bar for marijuana tests which will almost assuredly reverse or shorten his suspension. The reason I say shorten is there might still be a few more games suspended for Gordon because of his DUI. Even then though, once Gordon gets back, he should be a WR1 and definitely worth the pick up.

  5. Schlereth, you still urinate on yourself...... http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2014/09/jets_player_film_spotlight_how_did_eric_decker_fare_in_his_debut.html Jets player film spotlight: Analyzing how Eric Decker fared in his debut vs. Raiders Loading Photo Gallery Darryl Slater | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com By Darryl Slater | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com Email the author | Follow on Twitter on September 09, 2014 at 12:36 PM, updated September 09, 2014 at 2:32 PM Eric Decker, the Jets' biggest free agent acquisition of the offseason, had fared quite well in his career against the Raiders. Before coming to the Jets, Decker spent four seasons with the Broncos. He had faced the Raiders eight times before Sunday's Jets-Raiders season opener. Last season, he torched them for 133 yards. The year before, he put up 79 and 88. Now, a lot of that had to do with the fact that the Broncos were very good the past two seasons and the Raiders were very bad. Still, Decker had enjoyed positive results against Oakland. He looked good again Sunday, in his regular season debut with the Jets. He was targeted six times and made five catches for 74 yards, with a long of 24. Let's take a look back at the film and see if we can glean some more details of Decker's performance. After giving it a second viewing, here are some things we noticed: • Geno Smith did not target Decker for the first time until 6:35 remained in the first half, on third-and-9 from the Jets' 21-yard line. Decker lined up on the far outside, to Smith's left. The Raiders' cornerbacks were playing off in coverage. Smith lobbed a quick screen pass out to Decker, who caught it around the 20 but was immediately swarmed, and gained just 2 yards. Nothing Decker could do with this one, as the Raiders rushed just four men and kept the rest in coverage. • Smith went to Decker to start the Jets' next drive. It was first-and-10 from the Jets' 20. The Jets lined up with two wide receivers and one running back, with Decker to Smith's right. Smith looked to his left for a deep ball, but nothing was open. Then he turned right, where cornerback Carlos Rogers had started the play by lining up about 7 yards off the line of scrimmage, against Decker. Decker is a surgically precise route-runner. Back in training camp, he acknowledged that he is not the fastest receiver, but said, "Technique has gotten me open more than speed." He was about to show why, on his first long gain as a Jet. By the time Smith turned to throw to Decker, he was wide open, with Rogers about 4 yards away. How did that happen? Well, it happened because Decker ran a beautiful route. About 5 yards off the line, he stutter-stepped and turned his head and torso toward the inside of the field. This made Rogers stop in his back pedal, ever so briefly, and turn to the inside as well. Now, Decker was in control of the play. In the image below, you can see the moment when Decker turns from a straight-ahead run, to a fake toward the inside -- and the reaction it causes from Rogers. These was a split-second part of the play, but it made a large difference. Just an instant after Decker resumes his straight-ahead running, look how bent over and flat-footed Rogers is, after Decker's fake to the inside of the field: This is a significant advantage for Decker as he nears the first-down marker. Just one quick turn of the head and torso has resulted in Rogers being taken out of position. Rogers is seemingly able to recover, as he turns and starts running down the field, thinking Decker is going with a deep route. But now Rogers's back is to Decker, and Rogers is ahead of Decker, as you can see here: Decker has almost finished off Rogers. He just needs to make one more move. And here it comes. Decker slams on the brakes and stops on a dime at the 35-yard line. Rogers can't even see him at this point. Decker is directly behind Rogers, and Rogers is going to keep running. Decker turns back for the ball. Look at the spacing he has at this point. The ball is already halfway to Decker in this image. Rogers has zero chance of making the play on it. He can only hope to tackle Decker, who ends up securing the throw and gaining 24 yards on the play. An impressive display of route-running from Decker. • Decker's next long gain, for 21 yards, came in the third quarter, on second-and-10 from the Jets' 48. Getting open wasn't as involved for him on this play. He was the Jets' only receiver in the formation, in the slot to Smith's right. Smith executed a play-action fake to Chris Ivory and Decker crossed the middle of the defense. He took a bump from weak-side linebacker Sio Moore as he went across the field, but stayed on his feet, caught a short pass from Smith (as a blitz was closing in on Smith) and ran toward the sideline to finish off the route. Good balance here by Decker, to stay up and in position to catch the ball. • Decker had his final long gain, for 22 yards, in the fourth quarter, on second-and-3 from Oakland's 49. The Raiders were thinking run. They had six men along the line of scrimmage, as Decker lined up in the slot to Smith's left. The Raiders bit on the play-action fake, and their defense flowed accordingly, to the right of the Jets' formation. Smith turned to his left and hit Decker for a screen pass. But even though this week's player spotlight blog post is about Decker, this particular play was made possible by left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson, who peeled off the line and blocked Rogers out of the play, right at the first-down marker, enabling Decker to run for most of the 22 yards he gained on this play. Check out how quickly Ferguson sneaks off the line and into the second level of the defense. He is in position to make the block just as Smith turns to throw toward Decker. And Ferguson has his eyes on Rogers, who otherwise would've gotten a straight shot toward Decker after he caught the ball. Ferguson takes a great angle to reach Rogers, and if you notice the way Decker's head is turned, he is reading his block and looking through the hole it created. Decker hits the hole and sprints ahead for a big play -- the final one of three that he (and his teammates) made on Sunday, totaling 67 of Decker's 74 receiving yards in his auspicious debut.

  14. Here's how I choose to view it...against New England, they figure they'll lose the game but they can justify the cost becuase they have a future HOF QB. Against Miami, no HOF QB, but the fans get to see a likely win. The Jets? No HOF QB, and it's a game they're going to lose...hard to get fans to pay extra for that : o )

  15. This is my 8 year old rescue dog Big Baby- Bubba. He developed a mass in his bladder and eventually ended up in emergency surgery. Very scary day for us. They removed the mass and he is now back to full health. This is the day we got him back so my kids made him a bed to lay on. He had to wear that collar so he would not mess with his 14 staples. He was still on pain meds snoozing nicely at this point.

  19. ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee to an NFL executive three months ago, while league officers have insisted they didn't see the violent images until this week. The person played The Associated Press a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video arrived. A female voice expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible." The law enforcement official, speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation, says he had no further communication with any NFL employee and can't confirm anyone watched the video. The person said they were unauthorized to release the video but shared it unsolicited, because they wanted the NFL to have it before deciding on Rice's punishment. The NFL has repeatedly said it asked for but could not obtain the video of Rice hitting Janay Palmer — who is now his wife — at an Atlantic City casino in February. The league says it has no record of the video, and no one in the league office had seen it until TMZ released it. When asked about the voicemail Wednesday, NFL officials repeated their assertion that no league official had seen the video before Monday. The person said he sent a DVD copy of the security camera video to an NFL office and included his contact information. He asked the AP not to release the name of the NFL executive, for fear that the information would identify the law enforcement official as the source. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell initially suspended Rice for two games following the February incident, but the Ravens released Rice on Monday and the NFL suspended him indefinitely after the website TMZ released the video. Goodell told CBS on Tuesday that "no one in the NFL, to my knowledge" had seen a new video of what happened on the elevator until it was posted online. "We assumed that there was a video. We asked for video. But we were never granted that opportunity," Goodell said. In a memo to the NFL's 32 teams on Wednesday, Goodell said that the league asked law enforcement for the video, but not the casino. "In the context of a criminal investigation, information obtained outside of law enforcement that has not been tested by prosecutors or by the court system is not necessarily a reliable basis for imposing league discipline," he wrote. The video, shown to the AP on Monday, is slightly longer than the TMZ version, and includes some audio. Rice and Janay Palmer — now Janay Rice — can be heard shouting obscenities at each other, and she appears to spit at Rice right before he throws a brutal punch. After she collapses, he drags her out of the elevator and is met by some hotel staff. One of them can be heard saying, "She's drunk, right?" And then, "No cops." Rice had been charged with felony aggravated assault in the case, but in May he was accepted into a pretrial intervention program that allowed him to avoid jail time and could lead to the charge being purged from his record. A prominent New Jersey lawmaker called Tuesday for that decision to be reviewed. Hours after portions of the video were made public by TMZ, Goodell suspended Rice indefinitely and Baltimore terminated his contract. He had originally been suspended for two games, and team officials had praised him for his apologies and actions after his arrest for aggravated assault. Goodell and team officials said they were taking more severe action because of the violence in the video. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/ap-newsbreak-source-says-rice-video-sent-nfl

  23. Speaking of terrible, so is Mike Wallace. I saw that play live, that was a gimmie touchdown and he had no idea where he was in the endzone. I'm so glad the Dolphins signed him for that money and we didn't have the chance to because he has had 1,000 yard season of his career...his contract year...and he sucks. He's a fast guy and that really is about it. His hands are pretty suspect and his route running is very average.

  25. No. The Dolphins are in first because they are 1-0 in the division. The Jets are in second because they are 1-0 in conference The Bills are in third because they are 1-0 out of conference. The Pats are in fourth because they are winless loser ****wads. It's always based on playoff tiebreakers.

  26. No, we as Jets fans are never allowed to derive any pleasure whatsoever from watching our team play. If the Jets ever do win the Super Bowl it will only be because its a down year in the NFL and it will be the worst Super Bowl performance by a winning team ever.

  29. Like any good politician, Goodell can just issue a lame, ambiguous statement depicting semi-remorse, then wait for two news cycles to pass when no one will remember what happened. There are two oft-victimized groups that no one really cares about enough to carry a torch for with any real vigor: women and the elderly. If the media-at-large wanted to give this thing legs, they'd find a race angle to play. Ray Rice is a suckbag and he'll lose millions, but that'll be the legacy of this incident.

  33. The Jets have a very good defense and a great running attack. For all the naysayers about the OL, they looked pretty good yesterday. Most weeks against half the teams in the NFL that will be enough to win or at least be competitive. And next week with a Packers defense that is ridiculously overrated they should make a game of it. Fully expect the Jets to hang 200+ rushing yards on the Hawk/Matthews blond hair club for men crappy Pack defense. Problem is when they get in a game when thety need to score 27-35 points, Geno Smith is not gonna get it done. The margin for error is next to nothing,which is how one circus catch TD by the Raiders at the end was so scary. This should have been a blowout, and it wasn't because of mistakes by Smith. That last sack was disgace that cost them 3 points and made what should have been a 3 score game a 2 score game. We have learned need superior QB play to beat the better NFL teams. And we have seen enough bad QB play to know what we saw yesterday is not gonna get it done. Further when the CS running Wildcat down by the goalline they think that too. There is no other team in the NFL taking out it's starter in those situations. There are some here who (young, new , what ever) who see Geno Smith not crap himself and think it's grounds for a Thanskgiving Day Parade. That's insane. The Report Card grade is is correct. This was a C to C minus. Is it so much to want a QB who is an asset rather than a lialbility?
