  1. my youngest son (8yo) just started to be interested in football. doesn't know a lot but knows famous players and most of the teams. he wants to play pee-wee this year. anyhow, we are out in the yard throwing the football around and he threw a really nice pass. I told him " you looked like joe willie right there", referring to his nice pass. so he asks me "dad,who is joe willie?" so I proceed to tell him about Namath and about how important he is to jets history. I then told him he is to the jets as tom brady is to the patriots. he looks at me and then says "did joe Namath cheat too?" I thought

  4. But that's not the scoop on Smith from the scouts. He's considered amazing at tracking footballs & has the speed to get to them & he attacks the ball. That's about as far away as Johnny Lam Jones was coming out of college as there can be. This kid long ball stats were OFF THE CHARTS. I'm seeing some really long pass interference calls when Smith gets up to speed. EVERYONE knew this kid gets deep & coaches couldn't prevent him from getting behind defenses. With Marshall & Decker he's the X factor that will keep DCs up at night. Can't wait to see this kid in action.

  5. The Jets are going to hold their mandatory minicamp on June 9-11, and this should provide fans and Todd Bowles a good look at their newly reconstructed team for 2015. Some of the things to look forward to: The Return of Wilkerson: Brian Costello wrote that Muhammad Wilkerson plans to rejoin the team for mandatory minicamps, and will avoid being fined for his absence. This is music to the Jets, as they can now see how the defensive line will gel with each other for the first time. One of the most interesting stories for the 2015 season is how the Jets can mold their abundance of stars alon

  9. Geno played good in exactly one game his entire career, that being the Miami game last year in which the season was mathematically lost and there was zero pressure on him to perform. Part of being a starting NFL QB is being able to do that every week of the season when pressure is, in fact, on the line. Geno doesn't possess the mental constitution to ever be successful in this league. It's that simple. If he were the bonafide starter, by now he would have already separated himself from a gimpy journeyman Fitzpatrick in camp. Yet, all we hear are OTA reports and tweets about how Fitz is mak

  15. Thank you Jet Nut. I just enjoy reading and posting here. I will admit, when it comes time for Buffalo and Jets to play each other, I may make myself scarce. The reasons being? 1) If we lose, I don't want to hear anything negative about our team. 2) If we win, I am not one to gloat. I am a firm believe of doing onto others what you want done unto you. I probably will still read posts and only chime in if my comments will not be offensive.

  16. Have we even scheduled Okafor? Looks like it's down to Winslow, WCS, and Mudiay based on the workout itinerary.

  17. He is under contract making $7MM +/-. Boo effin' hoo -- so he has to bathe in Charles Heidseick Monopole instead of Cristal. Near bottom of the 1st round pick who has played very well but is not the top of the class at his position. The Jets already know he wants a long term deal. Being petulant isn't the way to handle business. Play out the contract.

  18. You're telling me the players who built this league in the in the 50s and 60s knew they wouldn't be able to walk late in life, and knew that they'd be at higher risk of dementia and other brain related illnesses? Please. They for sure did not. Players today DO know that, which is why they shouldn't be ridiculed for walking away from the game in their 20s.

  19. Yeah, who cares what the real reason is? Anthony Davis doesn't deem the risk of destroying his brain worth the money he's making right now. For more money, maybe he'll change his mind. Again, who the F cares? The NFL doesn't take care of its retirees' healthcare after they're done and gone, so Davis is smart for planning long-term and should suck every nickel he can out of the league while he can. And do some research - helmets are the primary cause for a lot of these concussions. Rugby players still wear those leather helmets and don't have the issues the NFL has. Helmets are essentially

  20. I noticed you didn't comment on the "REAL" reason he's thinking about coming back in "maybe" a season or 2. I guess he's not overly concerned about his health if he's thinking of coming back? With regards to the suffering vets.... they got paid $h!+ and played without concussion protocols and quality helmets(leather caps way back) and pads like they have today. They had to play to support their families.... this kid gets his $10 mil, isn't satisfied with his contract and starts throwing the "retirement" line out there hoping the 49ers get a little more money in his pocket. You'll see!!

  22. I believe you're probably right on this. I think he's not happy with losing 3/4 of a million dollars this year. Sounds like he's out of shape and wants SF to not penalize him for being out for 10 games last year and being out of shape this year. I guess when they extended him they realized he was a little "soft" and un-motivated.They structured the contract so as to keep him accountable to the team and his teammates. Davis’ contract was filled with de-escalators based on making weight, attending workouts, and achieving 50% playtime. Per a league source his salary had already de-escalate

  23. Police and Firemen are cut from a different cloth than a kid playing a game. You diminish their sacrifice and heroism by comparing it to a game. Firemen and cops get paid a pittance to rush into burning buildings and capture armed assailants. This kid gets paid $ millions to play an avg. of 63 offensive snaps per game for 16 games. Quite frankly I think you owe the cops and firemen an apology. Not even in the same ballpark. Davis played 7 games last year. You don't think 7 months of NOT playing is too little time? Here's the real reason he's throwing the "retirement card" out there.

  24. If the rules had any teeth, Calipari would be banned from NCAA coaching for life. Instead... It's about money. If you're at a big time moneymaker school, no biggie. If you're not, don't go buying a kid a sandwich or a suit jacket. Oh, they're gonna rescind some long ago title? Wow, that's really tough.

  25. I agree. First of all, if you've earned enough money at the age of 25/26 to retire and not have to work again the rest of your life as long as you invest and spend your money wisely than all the power to you.....God Bless. Sounds like he's putting his health and well being as his top priority, very smart and mature for his age. Now secondly, what the hell is going on in San Francisco with all these early retirements? Willis was a shock, but you can understand once he explained his reasoning, plus he's played a fairly long career (7-8 years?). Justin Smith's retirement was not a shock

  27. I know it's a 6th, but the Boyd one still stings the most. Not because it was stupid, which it was; but because Rex was blathering through his suckhole about how he was going to do that before the draft even happened.

  30. It'll certainly look a ton better when McDougle finally gets a chance to show what he can do and Pryor/Amaro develop. But it would seem that Idzik himself would admit that a lot of this draft was a failure when you consider Saunders, George, Dixon, and Boyd are no longer on the team. No, you can't expect all 12 to be on the roster within a 2 year period, but these were guys that aren't even on the 2015 roster (1 got cut in training camp and another got cut 1 month into the season), and all of them were drafted before the 7th round. It's the job of the GM not to have THAT many disastrous fai

  31. With the Jets loaded now at the WR spots Geno should see less blitzing. Also with the run game being very effective for the NYJ, a few more draw plays may also help to slow down the pass rush. Good drop KRL and thanks. Go Jets

  32. I will bet you a jersey that the Jets overall QB rating will be better than the Raiders overall QB rating. If you win I will have shipped to you an official Nike NFL Raiders Jersey. If I win, you have shipped to me an official Nike NY Jets jersey 2XL (probably Leonard Williams). Do we have a bet? If not... STFU

  33. Not just the fumbles but the lack of awareness of the situation. When you're on the other team's 30-something in a close game you don't run backwards 10+ yards and take a sack. If he got blindsided by a missed blocking assignment, that's one thing. To run straight backwards means he saw it and panicked instead of rolling out outside the tackle and throwing it into the stands. I think he should have been reminded right before every play, through his helmet, but the reason doesn't change: he's unaware. Maybe it's just because he wasn't ready, but maybe because he just can't do it. Physically
