Jets Info

  • What is your favorite Jets related memory?
    Not SB III. I knew we had that. Mine was at Shea on the usual windy day. Namath bringing the team from behind in two plays with passes to Sauer and Maynard. The first for 50 yards. The next for the TD. I cannot remember the team (hell, I have been following this team for 50+ years), but it was one of our big rivals back then and at a critical time in the AFL season. The way Joe would look right and in a split second throw a long bullet to the left side was effin' magic. .
  • Do you have season tickets?
    No. I try to get to one game at the Hackensack Swamp and a road game every season.
  • What Jets memory broke your heart?
    Too many to re-visit. I let that $hit just drip off me. I noticed you left the most room for responses to this single question. Assholes.
  • Who is your favorite member of the NY Jets flight crew?
    The one with the tight a$$.
  • Where you alive for Super Bowl III?
    Very much alive and kicking. I was 16 and a Jets nut job even then. I have been a fan since Day 1.

  1. Baker Mayfield

    So, the main knock on this kid is that he sees and hits open receivers...
  2. Bowles scored a perfect 10 in this demonstration of abject and collective incompetence. Repetitive, team-wide stench falls on the coach.
  3. Nothing on the tiny backer?

    Early in his first tour with the Jets, Davis used to fly around the field making plays until Rex decided he should bulk up. He looks like his old (young) self again, playing sideline to sideline.
  4. Mo Wilkerson ~ ~ ~

    Even a busted clock is right twice a day. Mo was really swinging that pot belly around last night, but who's to say he isn't going revert back to his sluggish self and go back into hibernation for the rest of the season.
  5. This is somewhat of a cap move on the part of both teams. Pats don't want to pay Jimmy G as an UFA. Obviously, they do not see his future price tag equal to his talent and do not want to overpay for a backup. 49ers don't want to severely ding their cap for years to come by paying Cousins. Even with Cousins, 49ers still have too many warts to contend in the near term so why blow the cap and limit their ability to build the team. It's as much a money deal as anything else.
  6. Bills trade Dareus

    Big salary dump. The guy got paid $$$ and hasn't come close to earning his keep since. Remind you of anyone on the Jets D-line? Pretty simple.
  7. Cimini on rookie safeties

    Or he is in his post coffee-enema bliss...
  8. 12-124

    When I read the thread title I thought this was a Nostradamus-like prediction of the Jets' record for the next 8 and a half years.
  9. Some thoughts

    Hardly. They have been killing me for decades. This group is right on track in continuing the legacy.
  10. Mo looks about 8 months pregnant with that profile view on the sidelines. He is all gut.
  11. I have hemorrhoids older than you.
  12. The wheels came off pretty quickly for Huckleberry.
  13. As an aside regarding solid secondary play against the Fins, I haven't seen any mention of Skrines' 8 solo tackles.
