  1. Hey,

    If anyone is planning on heading out to California for this game, let me know before you get tickets.

    The Raiders released a bunch of tickets for a charity to sell as a fundraiser and are willing to give them out at discounted rates.

    The charity bought them from the Raiders for 40. I bought 5 tickets for 45 dollars.

    The face value of the tickets is 56 and with ticketmaster is around 61. Not bad either Sec 307 row 2. Saved about 16 on each ticket which isn't bad. No concerns with scammers or anything, just pick them up straight from will call.

    If you're interested PM me and I'll get you the information

  2. My head hurt writing that...its just a whole lot easier than idiots on the board proclaiming that we have 2 draft picks next year or have to trade our first rounder to get a 3rd rounder to then give to the browns...some ridiculousness

  3. I know people are confused with what could happen with our draft picks for next year.

    I'll do my best to break it down, and if I make a mistake, just add the correction and I'll change it accordingly


    Lito Sheppard:

    Sheppard will make $3 million this season, the same he would've made with the Eagles.

    - In March, 2010, there's a $10 million option bonus. If the Jets decide to pay it, a new four-year, $27.2 million kicks in.

    - If Sheppard is injured and misses considerable time, the Jets can get out of the deal after one year and they wouldn't owe the Eagles a draft pick in 2010. If that's the case, all it would've cost them is a fifth-round pick in the '09 draft. One person familiar with the deal said it could amount to a "one-year test drive" for the Jets.

    - The conditional pick in '10 can rise to a second-rounder, but only if he hits an 85% playing-time plateau AND receives the four-year extension. And if that does happen, the Jets would get a fifth-rounder back from the Eagles. The Key to this is with his time already missed it is HIGHLY UNLIKELY that he will make this plateau

    - If Sheppard makes 85%, but doesn't receive the extension, the Jets would owe a third-rounder to the Eagles and would recoup a fifth rounder.


    So for Sheppard it can either be a

    5th in 2009 (already given up) if he does not reach playing plateau and goes to free agency

    (regardless if he signs with them after entering free agency)

    Give up a 3rd in 2010 and receive the Eagles 5th rounder if he makes the 85% but does not receive the extension

    Give up a 2nd rounder in 2010 if he hits the 85% plateau and is extended.

    Key point: If the Jets do not extend him through this deal, let him go to free agency, and then sign him to a contract, they do not owe any picks to the Eagles


    Braylon Edwards

    We gave up Stuckey, Trusnik, a conditional 3rd and a 5th for him.

    The 2010 3rd rounder can become a 2nd rounder if he reaches a certain receptions plateau. Based on rumors it seems to be a near unreachable target, at which if he did reach it, it would be worth a 2nd rounder


    Kevin O'Connell

    We gave up a conditional 7th round pick to the Lions for him.


    Best case scenario:

    We have our 1,2,4, and 6th rounders. In this scenario Lito doesn't hit his 85% plateau and is not extended. Also Braylon does not meet his reception total plateau.


    Worst Case Scenario

    We have a 3rd, 4th, 5th (eagles), and a 6th rounder (assuming the Jets do no manuevering either)

    If Sheppard hits his plateau and is extended, AND Edwards his his plateau.

    Since the Jets were supposed to give the Eagles their 2nd rounder, while at the same time give their Browns 2nd rounder, they have to give the Eagles their 1st, the Browns their 2nd and 5th, and receive the Eagles 5th in return.

    Obviously Tanny would have to be retarded to do this.


    Most likely scenario

    We have our 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6th. There is no need for the Jets to punish themselves by extending Sheppard. They could ensure he doesn't go elsewhere once he goes to free agency by giving him more guaranteed money than what he would have received via the extension or something along those lines.

  5. Week 4 Report Card

    Saints Jets

    Brian Clark (lawngnome o-line)

    Quarterback: F

    Mark Sanchez: 14/27 138 yds 3 INT 1 Fumble lost

    He needs to install the clock in his head that warns him of an oncoming rusher. He had a “rookie” day Did not do bad moving the ball, but I thought he needs to start controlling the turnovers a little and protect the ball better. He has also had a tendency to have the ball sail on him a bit, both on screen passes and on out routes. Still showed flashes of talent and skill, but he definitely had a day he wants to forget.

    Running Back/Full Back: C

    Thomas Jones: 13 rushes 48 yds 1TD

    Leon Washington: 4 rushes 17 yards, 4 rec 24 yards

    Shonn Greene: 4 rushes 23 yards

    Thomas Jones remained consistent to his play in the first 3 weeks of the year, averages maybe a yard a carry and then breaks a 30 yarder to raise his average. It seems like he is stutterstepping prior to receiving the handoff. I saw it on 3 different plays, all of which resulted in a loss or no gain. Leon was productive out of the Seminole, but did not have the explosive affect on the game that we expect.

    Wide Receiver/Tight End: C-

    Dustin Keller: 3 rec 31 yards

    Jerricho Cotchery: 5 rec 71 yards

    Cotchery remained consistent with his play as well, which is a positive. He continues to run good routes and is Sanchez’s favorite target. Keller was held in check as well, as with the exception of the skinny post over the middle, did not have a catch/ which was a large game.

    Offensive Line: C-

    Weakest game of the year by far. They had trouble opening holes again, which is becoming a regular problem. They allowed Sanchez to be sacked 4 times and under pressure in many other situations. Moore and Woody had problems controlling Charles Grant on the outside, a few times leaving him completely unprotected, which is hard to believe considering his size and the impact he had in the game.

    Defensive Line: B+

    They did a good job muddying up the running game, and did a great job on the first 2 4th and short situations. They did what they could to keep the Saints off the board. Mike Devito had a strong game and got in the backfield a few times. Marques Douglas also did well with 5 tackles.

    Linebackers: A-

    Harris led this group again forcing a fumble of Thomas which the Saints recovered and leading the team with tackles with 12. He has proven himself to be an All-Pro caliber linebacker in this league.

    Secondary: A-

    Revis did not strictly match up with Colston, but he did cover him for a majority of the game. There were 6 balls thrown in his direction for a total of 1 catch for 14 yards. He also had 2 passes defended. Rhodes had 8 tackles and a good break up on a pass in the end zone in the first quarter. Lowery had a fumble recovery and did not do bad in coverage. Leonhard missed a few tackles, but did not have a bad game either.

    The key stat which shows the strength of this unit is Brees’s statline 20/32, 190 yds, 0 TD’s 78.9 rating. They kept one of the best QB’s in the league in check for a majority of the game.

    Special Teams: B+

    I cannot knock this group for not creating a game breaking play, but they did do a solid job.

    Feely allowed only 1 return off of his kickoffs, and Weatherford maintained a decent average. Although Leonhard has been surehanded back for punt returns, I can’t help but think that we are handcuffing ourselves by not having Leon in for punts.

    Coaching: C

    To me I just don’t know if they knew what type of game they wanted to play on both sides of the ball. On the offensive side of the ball they seemed to either go with a tricky offense, or an overly conservative offense. I also hate the call of passing on 3rd and 1 which hurt their 3rd down conversion rate. Even Thomas Jones can gain one yard!

    On the defensive side of the ball they were unable to reach the quarterback for a sack for the second time this season, and considering the pressure that they bring, it is hard to believe. I noticed the adjustment that Ryan made in the 2nd quarter by bringing more pressure, but if that is your bread and butter, it is what you need to do from the first snap, especially against this offense.

    Player of the Game: David Harris

  6. FAIL

    And he did play, and didn't play horribly.

    The second that people understand that in a 3-4 scheme he isn't going to get sacks, and be happy with him clogging a hole, that's all that matters.

    He is undersized for his position, and made a great play tracking back and tackling Johnson 20 yards down the field. That was a quiet big play for the defense

  7. Ryan's made roster moves that were questionable (Benching Devito who was playing well week 2), but his decisions have led to wins.

    Let's have faith that there is a plan in place that works game to game
