  1. I've always been ambivalent about having cheerleaders. They are there to be eye candy and not much else. It seems pretty silly. On the other hand, it probably gives a few people jobs and the exposure is probably helpful to the cheerleaders in their career if they are professional dancers or performers. Something to put on a resume. I can take it or leave it. I'd rather see a woman's professional football league where they were FULL pads and uniform.
  2. A lot of the southern and southwestern states have a gun culture. Just like taking your favorite mobile device with you. Some people don't give it anymore thought than that. It is an accessory that you are used to taking along with the rest of your outfit...
  3. Ug. We need a lawyer to hash this out. I'm not even sure if this will be under NY law or Fed law (airport).
  4. Agree with you fully. In QW's case, I'd consider the intent. He was transporting a firearm against the law, but he had no intent to break the law even though he was ignorant of it. He may have incorrectly believed that NY and NJ honor firearms licences from other states as MANY states do (reciprocity). He also had no intent of causing distress or harm. Again. It is what makes mandatory sentences destructive. Judge should make sure Baby Huey learns the gun laws, pays a fine and is free to return to his life and his job which has been doing nothing on the football field.
  5. Agree fully. Mandatory sentences are more often than not, destructive. It bloats the correctional system with non-violent offenders who should be out working and paying taxes instead of being a financial liability to the state. NJ/NY gun laws are also far too draconian. Any sane, law abiding citizen who wants to conceal and carry should be able to get a licence to do so in any state if they are willing to undergo firearms proficiency training and comprehensive background check. Given I just said that, it is also dangerous and moronic in general to let anyone walk off with a gun without fir
  6. I remember when Rex was with the Jets and the team use to walk through the parking lot together to the stadium. I got up close a few times and had a look at the team from only a few feet away. I remember Nick Folk had a look to him like a person that had been doing zen or yoga or relaxation/meditation exercises for years. He had such a calm, serene expression...
  7. Hmm... Interesting. The responses to this haven not been too positive, but I don't see any negatives. Bringing them in for a look affords options. Perhaps one or two of them can still contribute. If the final price is right and they prove they still have some gas in the tank, why not ???
  8. The 6-2 bit that you refer to came courtesy of the worst teams in the league. You are an elephant hanging from a cliff with your tail tied to a daisy... Greg Williams was masterful all year despite key injuries and other unforeseen roster issues. Gase was horrible at doing everything other than conning CJ into believing he's a brain child.
  9. You mean two highly competitive douche-bags didn't have a nice call together ??? What a surprise...
  10. I agree that Sam can not turn a football into a 50 cal bullet like Favre can do, but Sam's arm strength is more than adequate for the NFL. Sam is nowhere close to "bum" status.
  11. There are a few things to feel good about. First off. If you have no QB as has been the case with the Jets up until Sam, you have NO team. The Jets now have the all-critical piece in place with respect to to the roster, They have a QB that may very well be a "franchise" qb. Next. They have a top notch DC. Greg Williams defense kept them in every game but one. As long as Williams stays, the Jets wont be getting waxed on a weekly basis. Chris Johnson was aware enough to realize they had a problem with McCagnan and he was dynamic enough to make a dramatic change. Getting Dougla
  12. Beckton worries me. I HOPE he is taken before 11. He may turn out to be the best T since Anthony Munoz, but he may be a flop. If you already have decent tackles, he would be a great choice do to the upside. If you are the Jets and REALLY need manpower now, Beckton is too much of a chance. He may wind up being the next Vlad Ducasse. It is really a crap shoot
  13. My assessment of Sam has not changed since his draft scouting reports came out two years ago, He compares somewhat to a "Brett Favre" with respect to his style and skill set. A gunslinger that can improvise, extend the play and "wow" you with "did I just see him do that" type of throws... And... Mistakes. Now, here is the most important thing that needs to be revealed. In critical times and big games, will Sam throw the amazing pass (as he can) or will he be the bad Sam and make the head-scratching mistake (as he can) *THIS* question is the key to Sam's career and legacy
  14. They can get by with drafting a single Tackle and a single interior lineman. Beachum is not stud material, but he is good enough for now. If they draft a center in the later rounds, Harrison can play guard and they can go with one of their other current interior lineman. If they don't draft a specialist for center, keep Harrson there and use their new interior guy to play guard. They can really be OK if they just add two starters. It wont be the best line, but it will be better and it will be "building through the draft" and not pissing away all sorts of money and cap room on retreads
  15. clubhouse ??? Isn't that baseball ??? JOHNSON wanted lots of attention. GENO SMITH and TEBOW were ALL JOHNSON wanting to make a splash. So was bringing in IDZIK who sabotaged Rex and sent Sanchez out at the end of a pre season game to play behind a 4th string line which resulted in injury to Sanchez... That circus was JOHNSON...
  16. Wrong... Rex liked to keep it "likable and learnable". He also gave players the room to "be themselves" but he absolutely held everyone accountable to performance. Players would run through a wall for him
  17. Rex left and he went downhill... If Rex stayed, MW would still be on the Jets roster and he'd be productive. Same deal with Sheldon Richardson
  18. Brady stays for two more years and at a price that is friendly to the Pats... BB and Tom have a big old laugh at the rest of the world. They add WR talent in the off season, win the division and another Lombardi... If BB stays with the Pats after Brady leaves either now or in one/two years, I don't think they would be interested in Trevor Lawrence. I'd venture to say that they already have their eye on a few college QB's that none of us are talking about. One that would be the ideal system complimentary passer. Off the charts football IQ with ability to read a defense, decide on the
