  1. Tonights loss reminds me of 1985 when they lost their 1st game and then won their next 10 in a row then they lost their next 5 games and just missed the playoffs.

    That was actually 1986 and they made the playoffs and won a playoff game against the Chiefs that season before losing a heartbreaker to the Browns in double OT.

    Relax, things will only get better this season. You'll see.

  2. NFL Draft Prospect Interview: Brian Schaefering, DT, Lindenwood

    4/25/08. Brian Schaefering, DT from Lindenwood, sat down and talked about the upcoming NFL Draft.

    Did you have a favorite pro team growing up? Favorite player?

    Brian Schaefering: My favorite team growing up was the Pittsburgh Steelers, and my favorite player was Mean Joe Greene

    Geez - how old is this guy? Mean Joe ended his career in 1981 - 28 years ago, and this was his favorite player? Sounds like a Pats fan to me...

  3. What I liked:

    1. Has good speed and quickness enabling him to get separation.

    2. Has good hands and can make the difficult catches.

    What I didn't like:

    1. Quits on routes. I saw him get open and the ball was well thrown. If he had kept running it probably hits him in stride. Instead, he stops and turns it in to a jump ball (which he catches, but it allows the defender to easily catch up and make the tackle).

    2. No highlights of him blocking downfield for someone else

    All in all, not sure if he's the right value at 17.

  4. As a player, Locklin was an All-WAC tight end at New Mexico State. He played three years in the NFL (Rams, 1982-83, Broncos, 1987) and two seasons in the USFL (1984-85).

    Here is a fine example of shoddy reporting/investigation. Locklin was not an All-WAC tight end because NMSU did not join the WAC until 2005. At the time Locklin attended the school, NMSU was a member of the Missouri Valley Conference. Someone basically heard he was all conference at New Mexico State University and looked up what conference they are now in and put that down. Nice work NY Jets PR department.

  5. I don't like banning anyone, unless it's because of violent, threatening, or deviantly sexual behavior. We'll let Max make the call on the latter. I would like to have TX back in the fold. Divergent opinions are what make these boards interesting, and keep post counts high.

    I don't think of it as a banning - more of an intervention. He has enjoyed many more hours away from his mom's basement ever since. :)

  6. Well too bad manjudas wont be around as he and O Tanen bum.. will be working at Vesuvio washing dishes for Artie Bucco.. See you next week , good luck against Tony Soprano tom.. :baby:

    Manjudas? Way to compare one of the lowest forms of scum on the Earth, Bill Belichick to Jesus. Mangini betraying that low-life hardly compares to Judas betraying Jesus. Tool.

  7. " ... and that connection between Favre and Cotchery pulls the Jets to within six scores of the Patriots with two minutes left to play."

    Hey Ray - why don't you and your posse go stab another person to death and leave us alone?

    Lynch is actually coming off a Pro Bowl season. He was named to the team as an injury replacement last year, after starting 12 of 13 games and finishing with 59 tackles, a sack and three passes defended.

    Pro Bowl qualifications just aren't what they used to be... :confused:

  8. White's death follows a trend in which former Steelers players have died at an uncommon rate. At least 38 former Steelers players have died since 2000, with 17 of them 59 or younger, as was White.

    and still the Steeler's FO vehemently denies the charge that the team had rampant steroid use in the 70's...

    RIP Dwight White.
