  1. " The Jets have ALOT OF catching up to do.. "... ~ ~ FIXED ^ ^ cheers ~ ~
  2. Joe Douglas is currently in the process of learning the Jets’ roster.The team’s new general manager started learning about his players by combing through game film from last season. Now, he’s on to tape from spring practices for an updated look at the group in front of him.But we figured we could lend Douglas a hand by taking a look, position by position, at the Jets’ roster and assessing what the new GM has to work with at each spot. With that in mind, here’s a breakdown of the Jets’ situation on the offensive line: Depth chart Starters: Kelvin Beachum, Kelechi Osemele, Jonotthan Harrison, Brian Winters, Brandon Shell Backups: Jon Toth, Tom Compton, Ben Braden, Brent Qvale, Chuma Edoga Fringe players: Tyler Jones, Jordan Morgan, Toa Lobendahn, Wyatt Miller, Calvin Anderson, Eric Smith Injury concerns ? Brandon Shell: The Jets’ starting right tackle suffered a knee injury at the end of last season, which cost him the final two games. But after the season, Shell said he had a six-week timetable for recovery. The Jets were cautious with him at the beginning of this spring, but he’s now back to full health. Kelechi Osemele: This isn’t so much a current concern as one rooted in the past. As of right now, Osemele is just fine. But he was plagued by injuries in 2018 and believes they are the reason that he did not perform up to his typical standard. He’s on the brink of turning 30, though, so there has to be some level of concern that Osemele is in physical decline – at least until proven otherwise. Stock report With all of the moves the Jets have made this offseason, which players are in better shape now than they were at the end of 2018? Who has fallen out of favor? Up Jonotthan Harrison: Harrison spent most of last year as a backup interior lineman, until injuries put him in the starting center job. He fared well enough that the Jets have seemingly penciled him into that role again this season – barring a move to add another starting-caliber center, which seems unlikely at this point. Head coach Adam Gase has raved about Harrison’s intelligence and chemistry with Sam Darnold, which should help him secure the starting job. Kelechi Osemele: Maybe Osemele is just going from one bad team to another by moving from the Raiders to the Jets. But the fact is that the Jets believed in him and invested in him, swapping an early fifth-round pick for a late sixth-round selection to get him. That also gives Osemele a fresh start after a disappointing 2018, which he surely must welcome. Down Brent Qvale: Qvale was the team’s primary backup tackle last season. But this offseason, the Jets signed Compton and drafted Chuma Edoga in the third round. All of a sudden, Qvale could find himself well down the depth chart and, if things go poorly, on the fringes of the roster. Kelvin Beachum/Brandon Shell: In all likelihood, these two starters aren’t in immediate danger of losing out to Edoga. But bringing the rookie in could be a sign that the Jets will not bring back one of these two players after 2019 – assuming Edoga develops properly, of course. Pending free agents Kelvin Beachum: Beachum is in the final season of a deal he signed back in 2016. He’ll hit the open market come March. Tom Compton: The Jets signed Compton to a one-year deal this past March, so he’ll get to test unrestricted free agency again in 2020. Brent Qvale: The Jets re-signed Qvale on a one-year contract this spring. Brandon Shell: Shell is in the fourth and final season of his rookie deal. He’ll be an unrestricted free agent after this season. Ben Braden: Braden is entering the final year of his deal, but will be an exclusive rights free agent after this season, given his lack of service time. So, the Jets will be able to re-sign him on the cheap next offseason, if he’s still around at that point. Eric Smith: Smith is entering the final year of his deal, but – like Braden – will be an exclusive rights free agent after this season. Position analysis Strengths: Perhaps the best news for the Jets is that there’s some continuity on the offensive line, at least in terms of starters, between this season and last. Yes, the Jets ditched two starters in James Carpenter and Spencer Long. But because Harrison spent the back half of the season in the lineup, the Jets four of their five OL back from the unit that took the field over the final few weeks of 2018.Plus, they got a big upgrade at left guard in Osemele, which should help shore things up. Weaknesses: Continuity is great and all, but can it really overcome all the issues and inconsistencies that this unit put on display last season? Beachum and Osemele will both be over 30 when the season begins and none of the starters will be younger than 27. So this isn’t even just a line that struggled last year – it’s also an aging unit. Not necessarily the best combo. On the bright side, there’s a chance to overhaul the unit again next year, with two starters playing out their contracts.

  3. Jets fans are known as a passionate and sometimes rowdy bunch both at MetLife Stadium and on social media. However, Emory University’s Goizueta School of Business’s latest NFL Fandom Report says otherwise.According to the report, New York’s fan base ranks No. 20 in the NFL. The study is broken down into three equities — fan, social and road. The Jets rank No. 13 in fan equity, 17 in social equity and 19 in road equity. In 2018, Gang Green was ranked No. 15 overall. Not so surprisingly, the Dallas Cowboys come in at No. 1. The New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers round out the top five.Fittingly, the Jets will play every team in the top five this upcoming season. New York will also take on four other teams ranked ahead of them in the Buffalo Bills (No. 19), Washington Redskins (No. 11), Oakland Raiders (No. 17) and Baltimore Ravens (No. 18). Jets fans will have the chance to make their mark in 2019 by turning MetLife Stadium into a place no opponent wants to play. With New York nearing a return to contender status, there should be plenty to cheer for. > https://jetswire.usatoday.com/2019/06/25/new-york-jets-fans-fanbase-nfl-fandom-report/
  4. dear jgb,.. hi ! .. why would i want one from him when i already have so many of them from YOU ?
  5. A Supreme Court decision this morning will serve as a victory for the Washington Redskins’ ongoing efforts to protect their team name. The Court ruled that the federal government may not prohibit trademarks on “immoral” or “scandalous” materials, in a case brought by a clothing line known as FUCT. Although the Redskins were not a party to the case, it represents a victory for the team because opponents of the team name have argued that they should lose their trademark protection under the “immoral or scandalous” laws that have now been ruled unconstitutional. This is the second recent case in which the Supreme Court has ruled that the First Amendment defends the free speech of companies that have offensive trademarks.Losing trademark protection wouldn’t have forced the team to change its name, but it would have potentially cost the team money in merchandise sales, which might have been a first step toward Dan Snyder changing his stated determination “never” to change the name. Now Snyder doesn’t have to worry about that. > https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/06/24/supreme-court-hands-redskins-a-victory-in-trademark-case/
  6. ..ok, if we can get a 2nd and hopefully " something " else... we should consider makin' THAT deal cheers ~ ~
  7. There won’t be many opportunities for Jets fans hoping to get a look at Le'Veon Bell, C.J. Mosley or any of the other new members of the team at training camp practices this summer. The Jets announced their schedule of open practices on Monday and there will only be four of them this year. That’s a few more than the Eagles will hold this summer and one more than the team held last year, but it is lower than all of the other teams that have announced their summer plans thus far. The free practices will be held on July 27, July 28, August 4 and August 11.In addition to those practices, the Jets will also hold a scrimmage that is open to the public. It will take place at Rutgers University on Friday, August 2. > https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/06/24/jets-will-hold-four-open-practices-one-open-scrimmage-this-summer/
