  2. Yeah, I did a lot of research on that one as I didn't want the sun in my face for 30 years. In the old stadium thread on JI we had a lot of fun helping each other find the right seats. Using the Construction Webcam we figured out where the Upper Deck drip line would be, what issues with gate traffic in the Lower Level there would be, where the best parking would be, how much higher up the Upper Deck would be, how to avoid the sun, etc. SAR I

  5. They can't fill all their needs in one offseason. Keeping Pace and Babin is a prudent move. For that matter, letting Johnson walk is also a prudent move.

  10. Spiller, Ivory & Richardson are plenty of bodies at RB. CJ won't cost that much & because of his knowledge of Chan Gaileys offense & previous success he's a no brainer. A rookie always needs to learn blitz pickup which is not easy in the NFL. Spiller is best case scenario & instantly upgrades our offense. Then you will have either White- Cooper- Fowler- Scherff to pick from at #6. It's a great spot for Jets. Best case scenario is Mariota falls, Eagles are interested & Jets get Foles & draft picks. It blows my mind that we have fans not interested in obtaining Foles. He's better (and a lot YOUNGER) than anyone available on the street! He has really good recognition & got rid of the ball quickly under Andy Reed too. Our fan base is crazy. We have to find an answer at QB.

  11. Fibonacci is looking to spend some quality time with his family and make memories been there done that and dont regret one Sunday or late night game that I have attended in my life. The suggestion of attending a few games and sampling the seating areas is a great one. Do not listen to anyone everyone has a different opinion in life more so on where to sit at MetLife

  12. Im not in business with the Jets so I'm not really worried about sponsorships, though I'd say that the Jets signed Michael Vick and was perfectly fine and we all know that you can spit on, then K.O. your wife on an elevator and the public at-large will forgive that before they ever forgive you for killing a dog...which is a damn shame yet is unfortunately true. Im not sure if he's old or washed up, what I do know is that in 2013 the Ravens was the worst rush blocking team in the national football league. I also know that Ray Rice today is a top 5 receiving RB which is what we will need if Gailey is implementing a spread offense. And because of Rice history he'll be cheap so I dont see a situation here where we lose. You can spend 2 to 3 million dollars on a guy who is a top 5 receiving RB and could be a better runner behind a respectable line. As for the radioactive comment, he could be, but the entire league are filled with ego maniacs and we just had Percy Harvin on this football team and he wasnt knocking out fellow teammates and acting a damn fool.

  13. My post was all opinion, of course. I try not to state my opinions as "facts" and apologize if it came off that way. In my opinion, sideline Mezz (Clubs) are actually quite good, but not the corners. I love anything between the 20's that's not too high up. But I don't care for ANY endzone seats at any level of height (including the endzone "corners", which are in actuality endzone seats at an angle while you are still 50 feet behind the endzone) I sat in the endzone at Giants stadium for 20 years, including corners and have had quite enough of those. The 245a's at MetLife that I originally purchased were a huge disappointment in that they were still way behind the endzone but as high up as the Giants Stadium uppers. Not to my personal liking. At this stage of my life, mid fifties, if I am going to pay a king's ransom for game day tickets, including preseason rip-offs, I am going to do it where I want to sit. No endzones or faux non-endzone (corners) for me. As I said in an earlier post, to each his own. A friend of mine who is a high school football ref, loves the endzone seats that are behind the goal posts (non corners) as he says it's the best angle for examining the development of the play. The irony is that he doesn't like the corners either. Go figure.

  15. THis comment maybe the dummest ever, Cindy never played in the old NFL. Brady would have been put in a casket after 4 games in the old NFL. Most pat fans I know admit to this. He thrived in the Protect the QB and let the WR's run wild league, The first SB doesn't even count as this was a gift from NFL Tuck You

  18. The Upper Deck in Metlife Stadium is like the upper deck at Giants Stadium perched atop a 4 story building. There are no good views from the Upper Deck, even on the 50, even the first few rows. It's just too high up, the players look like ants, you can't read a number on a jersey, you can't see the football. The Lower Level in Metlife Stadium has its challenges with people standing up/down all the time and poorly thought out gates that cause traffic jams getting into your seats by kickoff and leaving the seats at the final gun. Up in a high row? Might as well be in the Mezzanine. Down very low? Better like the TV cameras in your face. Little kids? Hope they like looking at the backs of adults because that's their view. The Mezzanine in Metlife Stadium has the best elevation, the best way to see plays develop, and because it's got far fewer seats than the Upper and Lower decks the ratio of bathrooms and concessions stands and stairways to the amount of people is one of its great hidden features. You can get from your seat to your car in 6 minutes, I've done it in 4. The unfortunate thing about the Mezzanine is that all the sideline seats are Club's. But in the A corners adjacent to the Club's in a low row you get the best of all worlds. Great elevation, no one standing in front of you, read all the jersey numbers, never a wait to get food, never a wait for a bathroom, no congestion getting out after the game, and gameday ticket prices that are the best value in the stadium considering their adjacency to pricey Club seats. OP, you say you're tight on cash, I say this: Take this next year as a test drive. Plan out the schedule, use Stubhub, and sit 2 games Upper Deck, 2 games Lower Level, 2 games Mezzanine and see what you think. The Upper Deck has huge issues beyond the awful view, there are way too many people up there and not enough bathrooms or concessions or even dry cover to go around. The Lower Level is good but with little kids and very tall fans all around you, they won't see much. Mezzanine is very good for kids, zero lines for anything, and the right amount of elevation. SAR I

  19. Good call! Your boys will build some character up there and IMO the it's the best sightline to see the plays develop and get a majestic view and feel for the whole experience. 5 yard line 1st row on the field vs last row 50 to me is a no brainer - much better perspective especially for kids. Sounds like they already have some sound money management smarts too. Those seats actually command a hefty PSL on the secondary market for the Giants.

  25. I have never sat in the lower corners, I have sat in the lower endzone and the mezzanine endzone plus the uppers.I like the view from behind the line of scrimmage vs being too high up in the uppers. I sat up there for 2 years. If it's between the uppers or mezzanine or lowers I say pay 125 per seat with a psl vs 110 without the psl. My seats next year are in 202 2nd row. Last year I sat in the same section but 7 rows back and liked them. After my kids sat in the endzone and the mezzanine endzone and could actually see the players there was no turning back. The uppers are only worth the 110 if you get the lower rail uppers 50 yard line. Even still not worth 110 in my opinion.

  26. I agree w/ him. I still say Montana and Brady are essentially equal but Brady has put up more impressive "big numbers" - meaning 6 SB appearances to Joe's 4 and going 18-0 before losing the SB on a miracle play. And I still say that one of the most impressive passes I've ever seen Brady throw (and one that would've made him a legend amongst legends) was the incomplete pass he threw to Randy Moss that traveled like 70 yds in the air (down 17-14 in the SB against the Giants with like 30 seconds in the game). It was about 1/2 yard short of going for like an 80 yd touchdown that would've completed the 19-0 season. I'm a Jets fan but a football fan as well. I give Brady and Belichcik their due. They both might be the best ever. I don't know how seriously I take the deflated footballs (if it was only done in that Colts blowout then to me it's irrelevant) but I do, however, take spygate seriously. The Pats first 3 SBs were all very close wins so that cheating could potentially have been the difference in those games. But having said all of the above, if I was an owner and I was allowed to choose any QB to be my QB in the Superbowl, I might have to toss a coin between choosing Brady and Montana. To me, that's the real test of "best ever". But, again, if I was forced to say which was better than the other, I'd probably give it to Brady based on 6 SB appearances (vs 4 for Montana). I know some will say "but they've both won 4 and Montana never lost one while Brady lost 2". But let's not forget Montana lost 3 NFC championship game (1983 vs the Redskins, 1990 against the Giants and in 1993 as a Chief against Buffalo). I know Brady lost at least one as well btw. So is it better to lose a conference championship than win one and lose in the SB? I would say no.

  28. Nice. Between the 20's is better than any "corner" seating in this stadium as long as your no higher than the first 6 rows in the uppers. "Corner" = behind the endzone, only with a strange viewing angle. But "behind the end zone" is behind the end zone, no matter what the Jets try to call it. . Good luck

  29. For Club Seats first year he is looking at $3600 for 3 secondary market PSLs @$1200 each. ST for 3 are $2050 x 3 = $6150. Green Parking passes are $350 for the season. 3600 + 6150 + 350 = $10,100 Sorry my initial post was not clear.

  30. I have 4 tix on the 45 in the mezz club and 4 in the corner in the 100's. I sit in the 100's because I enjoy the crowd there more than in the mezz club. Your kids may feel the same way.

  31. Based on the above, I'd say you made the right choice for you and your boys. The game day prices are higher in the clubs and resales of them go for about 75% on good weather days and 25-50% in cold/rainy days. I sit in the lower sidelines and on occasion ( 1 or two times per season) we have sold those lowers on stubhub or ticket exchange a couple of weeks out and then waited until the Sunday morning of the game and bought Mezz clubs at way less than we got for our Lower Sidelines. It has worked out well. I don't particularly like the corners. How much is it per ticket to move over to the 20 -30 yard line? I started in Mezz corners and quickly realized why they were priced at $4,000. Got out of those after one season and moved to the lower sidelines. Corner view isn't so great, IMO. To each his own. Good luck and enjoy.

  32. You go club seats, 3 PSLs, STs and the parking is going to cost you over $10K for year one and $6500 for each year thereafter. You go UD 50's for $110 each it costs you $3550 a year, parking included. My opinion, even if you have the coin, the club seats are a bad value. Go with the UD take the $6500+ in savings from year one and get some kick *ss tail gate equipment and first quality LL Bean outerwear for the kids and you'll be golden. The memories will just as good if not better as your boys will be weathering the elements just like the players and watch football the way the way it was supposed to be watched when we were kids when our dads took us. The kids will be fine and will have a blast.

  37. WTF does Revis holding out as a rookie have to do with this ??? Revis could have turned out to be sh*t at that time, no one knew he was going to be one of the best Shut Down corners. Hell in his first 2 years as a Jet he played good, not great. He got most of his spotlight from his HC Rex Ryan and as soon as Rex opened his mouth He hurt his teams bargaining position because he simply never shut the fu@k up about it. I was not blaming Rex for his original holdout and quite honestly it has absolutely nothing at all to do with this argument of how Rex gushes about his players. JIF is you can't see how a coach gushing over a player could be a bargaining position for an agent then there is not point in me trying to convince you Just knowing the fact Revis had already held out as a rookie should have been enough info for an Idiot like Ryan to shut his trap and not provide more ammo for his greedy agents. if you think for a second talk of Rex ryans gushing didn't come up in negotiations then your nuts. @ Slats Another ridiculous argument ...Parcells loved Curtis Martin no doubt but he NEVER acted like Rex Ryan with any player including Martin to say so is pure bullsh!t ...Just because he announced the guy into the HOF absolutely does not make any type of point at all. Rex gave up picks and signed Martin to a nice contract because at the time Martin was what this team needed in the backfield and he helped transform this offense into one of the best in the NFL at the time.

  39. It is really semantics and doesn't matter in terms of this discussion, but I think Geno is a sh*tty scrambler. The word scrambler denotes being able to move when under pressure. I think Geno sucks at that. Some guys can move around in the pocket and buy time all day. Tarkenton in the old days. Wilson and Rodgers are like that now. Geno can run, but his lack of pocket awareness and presence means he blows as a scrambler IMO. I think Geno is a poor man's Kaepernick.

  40. So he gushed over a hall of famer...and traded a 1st and 3rd for a hall of famer. That seems like a pretty good deal to me. How many HOF'ers have we drafted in the 1st and 3rd rounds?

  43. Absolutely Rex is right but that's not the point .... The point is Rex is an idiot and actually hurts the teams bargaining with the player. If jack ass Rex goes around continuing to do this he draws attention to the player just like he did with Revis then said player wants or demands a boat load of money. Rex the Idiot, as a coach, should probably not be doing that and should have learned by now but just like other Head Coaching abilities the guy just does not seem to learn how to work the system. He needs a little Parcells in him but apparently that's never going to happen will be fun to see what happens when Gilmore starts asking for Revis /Sherman type money thanks to his idiot HC
