  1. Given that all parties involved seem to want the trade to happen, the much-discussed swap that would send disgruntled Washington Redskins wideout Laveranues Coles to the New York Jets for wide receiver Santana Moss figures to be completed. Eventually. But there are still miles to go on a deal that has been simmering on the stove for more than a week and which could take another week before it's soup. Coles remains the sticking point because he wants more money added to the remaining five seasons of the seven-year contract he signed with Washington in 2003, enough to raise compensation over the next three years to $15 million. New York is making progress but not nearly as much as the breathless Big Apple media, which treat every phone call between the Jets and agent Roosevelt Barnes as if it were the Yalta summit, would have one believe. There were reports Thursday, for instance, of a meeting between Barnes and Jets officials. In truth, the meeting was a 10-minute telephone conversation with assistant general manager Mike Tannenbaum in which there was only incremental progress, if that. "Status quo," Barnes told ESPN.com. "We're not doing this thing until the numbers are right. [Coles] will stay with the Redskins if that's what it comes down to." But it won't come down to that. The Redskins were desperate Wednesday to learn the financial particulars of the contract that wide receiver Derrick Mason signed in Baltimore that day. So why were they scrambling for that information? Because once the trade is completed, the 'Skins will extend Moss' contract (he is entering the final year of his current deal), and they wanted a reference point. New York has mentally already dealt Moss away, or so it seems, since no team official has even phoned him during the trade discussions to apprise him of what has transpired or what might occur. Said agent Drew Rosenhaus: "I've got a client who is in limbo. I keep telling him, 'Hey, you're a Washington Jet.' He laughs at that but, really, he'd just as soon have this thing get finished." Frankly, it's difficult to see how the Jets could expect Moss to return to the team as a happy camper, since they've made it clear they prefer Coles to him. Finally, there is the matter of public relations, of which Jets brass always seems to be keenly aware. Jets fans have perceived this as a tough week, with the free agency defections of starting defensive tackle Jason Ferguson (to Dallas) and prized backup tailback LaMont Jordan (to Oakland), and won't be easily assuaged by the Thursday signing of tailback Derrick Blaylock of Kansas City. Recent history is that the Jets normally react to fan wrath by making a big deal that quiets the masses. So look for the Moss-Coles trade to be completed, although perhaps not quickly.

    and this

    Punts: Stung by the loss of defensive tackle Jason Ferguson to Dallas, and desperate to replace him, the Jets might consider some restricted free agent candidates. Toward that end, ESPN.com has confirmed New York will meet with Seattle defensive tackle Rocky Bernard in the next few days.
  2. los yets was a great poster as well

    was that you LL? i doubt it but if so, good job

    oh btw, i still think that jetstone=losyets

    Both of those guys were hilarious. Someone needs to hunt them down.

  3. No offense, but what is the validity of this rumor? We are talking Felger here.....plus, why would someone pick a team who's QB is Kyle Boller unless the money was 1) ridiculous and 2) who knows....

    There have been other sources that said the same thing. Adam Schefter from NFL Network said this the other night on NFL Total Access.

  4. Come on all ye brave and opinionated Jet Fans, and put you reputation where your mouth is! :D:D

    Put down, for all to see, YOUR prediction of rushing production in 2005 between OUR Starter (Mr. HOF'er Curtis Martin) and the RAIDERS Starter (Mr. Out-of-the-Shadow Lamont Jordan).


    Make your guess, your prediction. If nothing else, this should be pretty fun to look at in a year or so.....

    Martin 300/1300/6

    Jordan 250/1100/6

  5. Attitude?

    Hell, I would LOVE to play for the Jets! I'd give them the "Super-Fan Discount" too! I'm as acheap as they come, 6'5" and 400 pounds of RT Chubbiness.

    And I WANT TO BE THERE, unlike that "scrub" McKenzie....

    Attitude is important. Talent is more important. Blaylock is no Lamont Jordan.

    Fisherman, What makes you think Lamont is better than Blaylock over a full season? You can't answer it because no one knows. All we do know is that Lamonts top load carry wise was 18 which came once last year and Blaylock topped that 3 times including a 33 carry game. Also there is this idea that the chiefs o-line is the reason for his stats. Well the Jets o-line isn't that bad either and I can't wait to see the speedy Blaylock carry it on a sweep or on a screen behind Mawae and Kendall pulling to the outside. I'm not going to guarente Blaylock will be better because it is premature for that just like it is premature to guarentee Lamont is better.

  6. Blaylock is a good player...But he's nothing like Jordan--he's small and is a better receiver than runner.

    I gotta disagree Riggo. Blaylock is stronger than people are giving him credit for. You are right that he is not a tank but he is strong enough, faster and a better reciever out of the backfield.

  7. My only question on Hovan is how he would fit into the Jets D Line. Maybe Bit can better answer this but I believe Hovan is more of a 3 technique, one gap D Tackle. Idk how he would fit next to D Rob.
