  1. The problem is he isn't going into his contract year, he has 1.5 years left. And even then, you can franchise him. So if by 2024, you aren't sure he is the guy worthy of $20M a year, franchise him for a year and see where it goes. He's only 24, he's not even in his prime yet, so there is plenty of time and space to go. I think we as a fan base were hoping for this QW from day one, instead we saw a 7-10 best DT for 2-3 years around injuries. Now he's playing like a top 2 DT and meeting our high expectations. It is good to see, and I can understand the hesitancy on a long term deal, but he hasn't been as bad as others make him out to be.
  2. I did the same thing, but I was able to get an airbnb by the stadium for what will end up being ~200 a guy when everything was said an done, which seems to be a minor miracle. So excited for this weekend, as there is actual hope for something good to come from this.
  3. So I went on Airbnb the day before the schedule was released and based on schedule leaks, knew we were playing them that weekend. I then booked a place 7 min drive from the stadium (if you look for Gilligan's Bar and Grill in Green Bay, it is across the street) since at that time there were 2-3 listings that were close and reasonable in price and I knew they were going to go quickly. I might have space in the airbnb for either 2 or 4 people (the place has 3 bedrooms with a king, queen, and 2 single beds). I booked the airbnb from Friday to Monday since I wanted to do a tour of Lambeau on Saturday and figured I'd fly on Friday afternoon, and fly home on Monday. The cost for the spot per person would be ~$200 for the whole weekend which I think is considerably cheaper than the other options with the place being nicer than a hotel. I know I don't post on here as much as I used to, but I used to be a very involved JN family member, and used to do the weekly report cards, daily training camp reports (back in 2006/2007/2008) and posted plenty. I even think @Maxman would vouch for me at least not being a dick :). For this trip I want to get a group together of good Jet fans that are up for a fun weekend, have a few beers and hopefully watch a win. If anyone is interested in jumping in either respond here, or send me message here or on twitter (@jetsgnome) and we can figure it out. As for tickets, I haven't gotten yet, but I'm also following a Packers fan fb page to try to get tickets that way, but it isn't a top of mind thing yet.
  4. I’m going to Green Bay. Got an Airbnb on Wednesday night based on a leak from a packers writer. Saw that hotels were crap and expensive and the airbnbs weren’t much better. Was able to get the nicest cheapest one within a few miles of the stadium. I’ll figure out how to fill it later as I’m sure if I can’t find someone to go, there will be some fans at some point needing a bed
  5. I'll be there too on 7/31, just found out a friend had an extra ticket. I look forward to your training camp reports @KRL. Back in my much younger years here on the board and when the Training Camps were back at Hofstra (I think 2006-2008 seasons) I was doing the training camp report beat. Loved every second of it, and was hitting up the two a days whenever I could hanging out at Chrebet's restaurant in between and writing the report over lunch. Now I'm just old, and had to beg the wife to watch the baby for me to sneak out for half a day. How the times have changed
  6. @MaxmanI am definitely in for the game and would likely have a few people coming along as well. Would love to tag back in for a little JN fun
  7. I remember both the POTW as well as who "Won the day". Apparently I last won the day on 7/29/2007, so yea, it's long overdue
  8. Let's just put on a respectable show. Show potential and do something that we can take into game 2
  9. I should be going as well. Don't have tickets yet so definitely need to get those
  10. I spoke with David Chao who does nfl injury information mostly for fantasy. From what he knows it's a lower leg/high ankle fracture. Will require surgery. However he said it won't affect his Free Agency price most likely. Full recovery time for this type of break and recovery is 6 months which means him missing minimal time in training camp. They can actually give him more time to heal. If he gets surgery right away any team (jets included) would see him after a few months of recovery and would likely see no issue with signing him long term and paying his full price (especially with other teams bidding up). Good news for Wilk although i was selfishly hoping it might bring down his price.
  11. So psyched. Can't sit still. They need to bring it today, get out of Buffalo healthy, and get ready for the playoffs
  12. Sorry how I could forget this one. Colts remove the horseshoe from their ass they have had since 1999 and shove it up 8 other teams asses to have the exact situation happen. It would be a great 30 for 30 short or something, but god I hope for good football's sake that it doesn't happen.
  13. Seems like people keep wondering what could happen when (and I am saying when, F*** the SOJ mentality) we win. Correct me if these are wrong, but it plays out each case. WHEN WE WIN: DEN and KC lose, CIN Win ---> We play Texans (DEN 3 KC 6, CIN gets BYE) DEN and KC lose, CIN Lose ---> We play Texans (DEN BYE CIN/KC 3/6) DEN win and KC Lose (CIN result doesn't matter)---> We play Texans (DEN 2, CIN vs KC 3/6). KC win and DEN Lose and CIN win ----> We play Texans (KC vs DEN 3/6, CIN BYE). KC AND DEN WIN (CIN result doesn't matter) : We play Cincy (Denver is 2 HOU/KC 4/5) IF WE LOSE AND PITT LOSES (No chance for 5 seed, only 6 seed): DEN WIN ----> We play Cincy (Denver is 2 HOU/KC 4/5) DEN LOSS and KC WIN, CIN WIN----> We play KC (CIN is 2 HOU/DEN 4/5) DEN LOSS and KC WIN, CIN LOSS----> We play KC (CIN is 2 HOU/DEN 4/5) DEN LOSS, KC LOSS, CIN WIN ----> We play DEN (CIN is 2 HOU/KC 4/5) DEN/KC/CIN LOSS ---> We play Cincy (Denver is 2 HOU/KC 4/5) IF WE TIE: We're in, be happy! IF SOMEONE ELSE TIES: Check twitter during the game, someone will tell you
  14. I've been to multiple stadiums. I went to Oakland with 5 other guys in their 20's. We were scared sh*tless. Grant it, the Jets won 38-0 and the Raiders had Jamarcus Russell, but the people are not great to deal with and is it worth getting stabbed? We ended up putting on sweatshirts over our jerseys in the 2nd half so we wouldn't get attacked on the way out after the game was out of reach. Cleveland wasn't much better and I had some lively "discussions" with browns fans. The difference between Oakland and Cleveland is gang culture. Both have people that have questionable backgrounds but one is just trash and the other will try to hurt you imho. I'm planning on trying to schedule a work trip and head to London for the road game, if not, I'll be going to week 17 at Buffalo
  15. I'm going down with 4 other guys for a bachelor party. We should be going to Buffalo's which is just on the west side of the river close to the Pedestrian bridge. We know they have Sunday Ticket which helps pass the time. To echo the feelings before, a win here is a loss on the scoreboard. Suck for the Duck 2014
  16. In the end the gamble for Asomugha didn't hurt. Even then 8 Mil per year for Cro isn't overpaying either. Although I had to hold back pessimism, more than anything else in this team, in TANNY I TRUST!!!
  17. He was signed to a 4 year 15 million dollar deal with Bills. We couldn't afford that. Good Jet. Wish him luck with Buffalo
  18. Just spoke about it on ESPN Sportscenter. They were working through the night and will continue working today. They both have sent offers and counter offers and are working towards an agreement.
  19. At this point we need to bring in some people to replace Westerman as the extra OLB (who is going to take Thomas's spot after he is cut)
  20. It's time to step up and bring joy to the us Jet fans who have been there from the beginning. Whether that beginning was 1960, 1980, or 2000, all Jet fans have seen their fair share of disappointment and heartache to deserve a win and a smile on their face tomorrow night. J-E-T-S. JETS! JETS! JETS!!!!
  21. What people don't mention is that Calvin Pace stopped running on the play. Maybe he could have helped block?
  22. Looking all over for tickets. I need 2, and if anyone is looking to buy a set of 4 or comes across a few, I would definitely be interested.
  23. I'm without a doubt in on a road trip...especially considering I am in New Orleans and celebrating this win on Bourbon St. Decent Jets crowd so definitely a great time. Just need to find tickets now.....
