  1. To my hero, Wesley Walker....suit up! We need you out there!
  2. All great choices! Weihenstepahner is my wife's favorite. If you're ever in Atlantic Highlands, NJ, do the tour at Carton. Love their beer. We're actually leaving for Goose Island Wrigleyville in a few, going to try some brews that aren't available outside of Ill.
  3. Green Bay is THE place for a fan of an opposing team. Very hospitable people. Too bad our team left Lambeau at halftime.
  4. Just figure out where the meetup is Saturday Night. We're driving up from Cleveland that morning, and will be in need of drinks. What's the head count anyway?
  5. Ok, so where is the Official JetNation©®™ Saturday night meetup in Green Bay?
  6. I still have my 1st edition JN mug....any value to that?
  7. Tom, I just can't root against the Jets to lose before the first whistle of training camp. He may be a great coach someday, but not here.
  8. Problem is, Max has been trying to over-saturate me on here for years.
  9. I understand that. Just seems like every media outlet, and every Jet fan on twitter seems to be mentioning this.
  10. Please stop with the Jimmy Graham bs. He is signed with the Saints. Non-news to a Jets fan. Give me some Jets positional battle articles, without the negative spin.
  11. Doesn't anyone enjoy summer anymore? I'm looking forward to football, but....
  12. Tom, I just want to know one thing, before you start another 10 threads of dark Jets beat-down douchebaggery.....when the Jets score this season, will you cry?
  13. It was really evident in the AFC Championship Game. There were some horrific throws.
  14. IS TOM BRADY STILL A TOP-FIVE QUARTERBACK? Posted by Brad Gagnon on Jun 4, 2014 07:00 One day after we wondered aloud whether the greatest quarterback of this era could make history by playing effectively beyond his 40th birthday, we’re now asking a much less optimistic question about the man who has to be concerned Peyton Manning’s biggest challenger for that title. ESPN asked the question this week with an Insider/Pro Football Focus breakdown: Should Tom Brady no longer be considered one of the five best quarterbacks in the game? It’s a fair question, because Brady, who at 36 is the second-oldest starting quarterback in the NFL, was merely the league’s 17th highest-rated passer at 87.3 in 2013. That placed him below guys like Sam Bradford, Jay Cutler, Alex Smith and Andy Dalton. Aaron Rodgers has the highest passer rating in NFL history and is smack dab in the middle of his prime, and the younger Drew Brees is coming off a season in which he crushed Brady in every major category. Beyond that, valid arguments could be made in favor of Philip Rivers, Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, Tony Romo, Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan, Jay Cutler, Cam Newton and Andrew Luck. Only two of those guys would have to be deemed better than Brady in order to bump the three-time Super Bowl champion out of the top five. Since winning the MVP in 2010, Brady’s rate-based numbers have generally dropped in consistent fashion year to year. That doesn’t bode well for next season, even if he has a healthy Rob Gronkowski and gets more out of Danny Amendola. Brady still managed to take the Patriots to the AFC Championship last year despite not having Gronk, Aaron Hernandez and anyone recognizable in his receiving corps for all or most of the year. That offensive line is broken down, too. Brady was given plenty of opportunities to beat the Broncos in that game, because Denver was focused on New England’s running game. But Tom wasn’t terrific and the Pats fell short. It was a clue that Brady had begun to lose it, as well as a sign that opposing defensive coordinators knew that. And it’s not as though the Patriots have a bad defense. Only nine teams surrendered fewer points than the Pats in 2013, and they’re one of only three teams with 70 or more takeaways since the start of 2012. Right now, it would be hard to argue that Brady is a better quarterback than Rivers or Ryan, or even Roethlisberger or Romo. Considering that guys like Newton, Wilson and Kaepernick are only getting better, I think it’s safe to conclude that — at this moment — Tom Brady is not one of the league’s five best pivots.
