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. And we have to have the swine. Smoked in my drum smoker using 100% post oak and simple Texas style SPG rub. Essentially pork butt treated like a Texas brisket. Sauce accompanying the taco is Aaron Franklin's classic sauce as used at the restaurant.
  2. There are a few whale specialty restaurants but very few and far between. Whale and dolphin is only a seasonal nostalgic thing for older Japanese. Whale used to be prevalent on school lunch menus decades ago, hence one of the reasons for the nostalgia. There are so many good species of fish in Japan that are eaten cooked in various ways, too. It's not all about raw fish as many assume. Heck, you can get great very inexpensive grilled fish to go, like saba and sanma, at local groceries and even conbini. It's food heaven.
  3. He has been an excellent directional punter as well, doing a good job of shrinking the field.
  4. No Omega 3 in tilapia. And raised in filthy conditions, as is Basa. Basa sounds good right? Like Bass? No, mostly Vietnamese (and other SEA) catfish raised in polluted ponds and chock full of chemicals (intended and unintended). Aside from wild salmon, wild steelhead and wild trout eat only wild caught ocean fish in the USA. No Norwegian or "Atlantic" salmon. Japan has extraordinary farmed fish. They harvest very small fish born and captured in the wild and finish them in very large fisheries in the ocean. Also, watch out for farmed shrimp and prawns -- equally bad. Farmed oysters and uni (sea urchin) are fine.
  5. Or Bobby Bo is a financial wizard.🤣🤣🤣
  6. Each team should get one contract Mulligan per season.
  7. Not really. He got nothing while sitting out 2018. He earned $14.5 million on his 2019 Jets contract. 2020 $6.5 million base salary and $5 million roster bonus. Total for his two years with the Jets $26 million. Again, zero income in 2018 so $26 million over three years. After 2020 there is no more guaranteed money on Bell's Jets contract. Dead cap hit is $4 million. While that's all the money in the world for you and me, it's not top dollar by NFL standards. He screwed himself without the benefit of a lube job by passing on the Steelers francise tag and sitting out the 2018 season. If he has a great year, he'll get signed somewhere especially if he is productive as both a runner and receiver. Heck, Todd Gurley has a job.
  8. That is exactly why he'll show up in shape. The writing is on the wall regarding him being released after the 2020 season so it is really the same as a contract year. We all know these guys play hardest when their money is on the line.
  9. I think JD did just enough to accurately gauge what the team really has in Darnold. Hopefully, we get a full season out of Sam. He showed a lot of promise down the stretch but it was garbage time in the season. Easy to play loose with nothing really on the line. Let's see what he can do with improved talent over the course of the entire season and, especially, in games that count -- hopefully the Jets won't be out of it early.
  10. The Jets aren't relevant enough to garner serious hate. We've been more like gum on the shoes of the league. When we get real hate, we'll know the team has arrived.
