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. He really doesn't have that extra gear. The kid they drafted this year does have home run speed. My impression of McGuire is summed up by an old basketball term: "all shake, no bake". Lots of jukin' and jivin' but it never results in him getting upfield. Busy but not productive. I'd like to see him be a more efficient one-cut runner, which I think would make him more explosive. He slows himself down with extraneous lateral movement. The OL? Maybe a factor to some extent, but he really needs to show a whole lot more in the way of production.
  2. If Sam is ready, start him week 1, but not because he's going the savior right now. Growing pains are inevitable, better to allow him to go through that now than wait until next season.
  3. Well, they do have the "rouge".
  4. Freddie Bishop says "hello".😁
  5. I had the same exact thought. Forget the burglary itself, the fact that he targeted a trailer park is the cherry on top.
  6. This guy beasted in the CFL and was a complete bust here. Glad they are cutting their loss now.
  7. With Miles out for 3-4 months, this isn't a bad signing.
  8. McGuire is all-shake, no-bake.
  9. Long answer: Hells Yeahs.
  10. Is this friggin kid an attention whore, or what? Let's hope he learns to wrap up when he tries to tackle this season.

    Wait. Leggett is good?

    Laziness was the draft analysts' common knock on him coming out of college. Plus, he can't/doesn't like to block.

    For the "Trade Teddy" guys.....

    Jet's are likely to be big spenders in the FA market, so little to nothing in the way of a comp pick.
