  1. Hey - just wanted to let everyone know that my wife, Lauren, her cancer is back. I had posted about it before, years ago. She had breast cancer about 8 years ago and it came back a few years later. She recently hit the 5 year free and clear mark which is a big milestone. Then unfortunately a routine doctors appointment ended up with an emergency hospital stay and pretty invasive surgery. She was in the hospital for a week in May, her breast cancer has returned and unfortunately spread a bit. The Oncologist got the report right away and the team at Memorial Sloan Kettering took over immed

  2. Hey Everyone, @Maxman, aka Phil, shared with all of us the unfortunate news that his wife, Lauren, is battling cancer for the 3rd time. We all know she's going to win this fight and many have asked, besides kind words and prayers, how they can help. I reached out to Phil, suggesting I, and perhaps others, would be willing to take the burden of worrying about putting dinner on the table each night off of their plates, so that they could focus on healing. Phil graciously accepted the offer. So, now I turn to you. He's spent countless hours and dollars providing us this inc

  4. This strange this happened, I have no words. I never have that problem. But I just read every post in this thread and wanted to post a thank you, and I am speechless. I have given Lauren an update on this and her jaw dropped. Thank you all so much, so much of your routine changes when a family deals with cancer treatment. We have all adjusted but the one thing that is proving to be impossible for me is taking over dinner. Lauren always handled that and I am getting to 5 or 6pm and I have kids looking at me, then just about every day I am like damn, I am supposed to be doing this. It is ju

  10. Hey guys, finally got around to writing my second blog post. You all seemed to enjoy the first one so I figured I’d do what I did last time and share it and hopefully spark some discussion here on the forums. I know it was cool with Max and the mods last time as long as I just posted the actual content here like we do when we share any other articles. Not looking for clicks (it’s a free blog lol), I just wanna write for fun. Took screenshots of it instead of copying and pasting it because I remember people complaining that they couldn’t properly view it depending on whether or not they

  12. We are in awe of what is happening here. Yesterday was chemo day and I was giving Lauren some updates on this thread. When I say she was speechless, I mean she was speechless. She smiled and was just like wow. Smiles are huge right now. My daughter looked this thread up and said Dad this is incredible. You have all given me the street cred in my house that I have always longed for. LOL. All those hours in my basement talking to my "Jets Friends" and now everyone gets it. I mean that part, the power of this community has always been so inspiring. On a personal level, never more so than r

  13. I’m sorry, but Sanchez wasn’t as bad of a pick as guys like Dee Milliner, Calvin Pryor or Darron Lee. Hell, as much as I loved Darnold, he’s a worse pick than Sanchez in hindsight as well.

  17. This part of the season sucks so hard, 4 more weeks of nothing and then we finally get something to folllow. Was just thinking that I have actually lived in San Diego for 33 years now but I still miss some things in NY: Of course it has been so long ( I havent even been back since 2014) that maybe these things are no longer true 1. The people. California is not as friendly a place as NY. You rarely know your neighbors. People get easily offended. Everyone is very PC. I miss the warmth of NYers, couple with their in you face honesty and bluntness. I miss the fact that you could get in

  18. I for one attach football to my youth, hence my moniker Charlie Brown. That is before my mother passed from lung cancer and my father whom I live with was bigger than life, who was/is my hero and he wasn't, as he is now battling dementia.... It is news like this that reminds me what is important in my life and thankful to all of you for being here..... Rest In Peace Coach.....

  19. Hey everyone - I hope you'll indulge me one last emotional post. In my work, I think a lot about endings and goodbyes. They're never easy, especially when something meaningful has happened. I've gotten pretty good at my job over the years, but I still haven't figured out the perfect goodbye. All I have is the good-enough goodbye. That's what I'll endeavor to do here. Joe Klecko will be the last goal I set. I hope we crush it, and then some. But wherever we end up, our mission is already accomplished. The dollars are just a bonus now. We've raised over $7,200 which is incr

  32. Excellent article about Greg Knapp in today's MMQB: After Quinn’s staff was fired in Atlanta, Knapp was hired by Robert Saleh to be the Jets pass-game specialist, and work directly with 34-year-old Mike LaFleur, breaking into his first job as a coordinator. Over the last six months, LaFleur, Jets quarterbacks coach Rob Calabrese and Knapp were connected at the hip. LaFleur and Knapp had dozens of dinners, met in Napa over the NFL’s summer break, and, of course, were around each other constantly back at the office in Jersey. LaFleur didn’t really know Knapp much beforehand—outside of

  33. Guys - One of our favorite football team's coaches was run over by a ******* car today and it sounds like the outlook is pretty grim. If you're making a post in this thread that needs to be deleted by a mod... Look inward.

  34. Hot take: Lamarcus Joyner and Ashtyn Davis would make a perfectly capable Safety duo and signing Maye, who will be 29 next year, to a lucrative LTD is not smart.

  39. More than the money, which is well deserved given how well Phil has handled managing the site over the years,I hope Phil, Lauren, and their family know how much they’ve impacted us. Though it is an online community, there are very real people pulling for you guys and thinking about you during this difficult time.

  40. Gholston, Milliner, Quinton Coples. All these busts and they choose the guy who actually did his job ok from time to time? Ridiculous. Sanchez might not have been great, but he did enough to help his team get to 2 AFCCGs. If Rex's lauded defenses didn't buckle and deflate like they did, almost on cue in big spots, he would've gone even further.
