  1. Fat Tabor LOVES these chips. Skinny Tabor....not so much.
  2. Yes, I still post here on occasion.
  3. Anyone try the demo out? Looks good!
  4. Those Mountain-climbing porn stars should get a medal or something. I mean, the air up there is thin enough.
  5. Looks like I will be switching back to Coronas, then.
  6. GOB After watching this video, I will sell you both my acoustic & electric guitars, cheap.
  7. ever try to hang with Pats fans after a game again.
  8. Joey, How many years was Clemens here? How many minicamps and training camps and preseasons and practices did Kellen have with the Jets? He had lots of opportunities to take the starting job. He couldn't beat out Pennington, who we Jets fans ran out of town, for the most part.
  9. The guy holding the clipboard is always better than the starter. Got it. He did have a legitimate shot, but it didn't last long. That's life as a pro QB in the big city. Kellen "happy feet" Clemens didn't take advantage.
  10. Your response, while very good, was peppered with the word preseason, which adds up to about half of a chicken sandwich. Sanchez's collegiate career, albeit brief, was good enough to impress. He also had a pretty decent Rose Bowl, wouldn't you agree? So you could say that Sanchez/Rose Bowl > Ratliff/preseason.
  11. OK then....124, GOB....who did you want to be QB this season and why? (In 100 words or less)
  12. And one of the cars was a 6-cylinder Mustang with Michigan plates.
  13. Well, I just see a lot of cars up on the Brooklyn Bridge, all parked but left running with no drivers. They all have Jets bumper stickers.
  14. For the love of God, please tell me why Ratliff and/or Clemens were better options? For that matter, tell me why Quinn, Campbell, and Bulger are better options? Is it because we gave up picks and crappy players to move up to get him? Y'all got some 'splainin' to do.
  15. Stafford signing: Lions play their hand, come up aces April 24, 2009 Albert Breer In the end, the six-year, $78 million deal reached between the Detroit Lions and Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford late Friday wasn't just the move Detroit wanted to make. It was the move the Lions had to make. Take new coach Jim Schwartz's own words from the NFL Scouting Combine two months ago. "You can go play blackjack in Vegas and play the $5 table and play for a couple hours and make a lot of bad decisions and lose $100 and have some fun," he said. "If you go play at the $5,000 or $10,000 table, if you make bad decisions you're walking home, you're not flying home. "I think you've got to add that into the equation. Not only is it an opportunity to get a great player, but you need to make sure." Bottom line: When Lions officials decided Stafford was, indeed, a quarterback to build a franchise around, they had to do whatever it took to get him. So maybe forking over $41.7 million guaranteed -- 20 percent more than Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan got last year as part of the richest-ever rookie contract -- isn't the easiest thing to do. But given that Detroit felt it had a superstar gunslinger in its grasp, the Lions had to make the move. Aaron Curry could be an All-Pro linebacker. Jason Smith could be the next Anthony Munoz. But if Stafford proves to be a Super Bowl quarterback, it won't matter what the other guys become. Here's some more of the fallout from the Lions' megadeal: The Mark Sanchez sweepstakes is officially on. Just about every team from two through eight will auction its pick to those desperate to trade up. If you believe the Seattle Seahawks still are a threat to take Sanchez, the Kansas City Chiefs -- with eager-to-deal-down GM Scott Pioli in command -- could be the sweet spot at No. 3 overall. The veteran quarterback market also is open. If the Cleveland Browns take Sanchez at No. 5, Brady Quinn could be available.The New York Jets, according to sources, continue to show interest in both Washington Redskins QB Jason Campbell and St. Louis Rams QB Marc Bulger. The Denver Broncos could make a play for Quinn, and the Jets likely would be involved as well. The Rams are on the clock and have put out word that they could take Sanchez. Is it a ploy? Maybe, Maybe not. One thing is clear: The Rams desperately need a left tackle, and Baylor's Jason Smith or Virginia's Eugene Monroe certainly would fit the bill.

  16. Fitzgerald, Polamalu grace cover of 'Madden NFL 10' Decorating the cover of Madden NFL is now a two-man job. Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu will both appear on the cover of Madden NFL 10, according to a release from Electronic Arts. It will mark the first time two football players will be featured on the front of the game box. "Madden NFL 10 showcases the Fight For Every Yard, and nobody fights harder than Troy and Larry, making them the perfect athletes to grace the cover," says Anthony Stevenson, the game's senior product manager, in a statement. Fitzgerald becomes the second football player to appear on both the covers of Madden NFL and the NCAA Football series (Running back Shaun Alexander is the other). Madden NFL 10 will debut a new animation techonology dubbed Pro-Tak, which will introduce steerable tackles and the ability to fight for fumbles. The game hits retail on August 14.
  17. There is an official Jets Draft Party in Morristown this year. From the Jets official site: Party Addition to Draft Day Lineup I know a few of you New Jerseyans have inquired about a Jets draft day party in your neck of the woods. Well, we searched for a spot in the Garden State and we've found a perfect one. The Jets will host a Draft Day Party at The Grasshopper Off the Green at 41-43 Morris St. in Morristown, N.J. on Saturday, April 25. The party will run from 3-7 p.m., which will cover much of the televising of the draft's first round. Two Jets players and two Jets Flight Crew members are scheduled to appear from 4-7 p.m., and there will be Jets giveaways. So draft on and party on, Jersey. So, the question is....who is going where this year?
  18. You lucked out with the weather...seems like good things happen to you when you see the Yankees in April.
  19. C'mon, Panzer....tell them who the best is: Johnny Johnson. End of story.
  20. 2 years of being on the road for week 1....wonder if that increases the Jets' chances of having the week 1 home game in 2010?
