I personally prefer some of these...Now THIS is how football should be!
Remember Vince Evans...The Jets will make Tui look like a Superhero.
Looking at that model of Invesco makes me seasick. An open end like that would give a nice view of the NYC skyline though...
Can metal detectors be far behind....Now security will be conducting full-body cavity searches on everyone entering the stadium....No more bootlegging beers in!
No matter what position player we draft in the top 5 it will cost us the same. I think what your saying is we can't afford to spend so much money on one position considering the cap. I agree, and is why i think we have to ask Chad to renegotiate. But if there is a top "franchise" QB on the board when we draft, Bradway needs to think about the good of the team (not his job security) and pull the trigger. We may have to make some sacrifices at other positions but this team needs a QB to build around as I no longer believe Chad can be the answer...
With Chad Pennington's contract situation, there is just no possible way that we can afford the asking price of a quarterback that's drafted in the top five. We've gotta roll the dice in the second or third round and pick up a quarterback. If Jay Cutler is there early in the second round, that would be ideal, IMO.
I never root for injuries, but I don't see the point in Brooks starting this week. He has had concussion problems in college, our O-line is very porous, and the game means nothing. I know he wants to play because he's showcasing his talents to the entire league, but Herm should sit him this week and make sure there are no lingering affects of this brain injury. We don't need another Chrebet or Toon situation on our hands...
I tend to agree, he never seems to pull punches just tells it like he sees it....Randy Lange is the best of the bunch.
I posted this on another website a couple of months back. Makes you wonder about the ability of our GM...
BRADWAYS BODY OF WORK
With all of the talk about Bradway I tried to list all of his notable personnel moves since he has been here. Although there have been cap issues he has had to deal with (some created under his watch), I'm not convinced he has increased the strength of this teams personnel at all. I've put together each of his years with what I remember as the biggest acquisitions, losses and draft picks. When looking at it all together like this, again I am not impressed. A lot of this info is off the top of my head so I'm sure I'm missing some stuff, so feel free to add/delete and let me know what you think of the job he has done. Maybe I am just missing something....

the Jets offer was about 3 million dollars less than the Broncos offer.
Not to mention the Jets found decent safeties via draft. It's not like they are 2-7 because of the safety play.
Well actually the Jets signed Reggie Tounge after getting spurned by Lynch.
I can't tell yopu what goes on in the locker room (and anyone who tells you that they can is full of crap. unless they are there), but the team plays hard (I know you won't like to hear that), and they hit until the end. The team does not mail it in under his watch.
All that being said, that is not enough right now. It is stale and needs a breath of fresh air.
I believe the team does respect Herm, but I also believe his message is beginning to fall on deaf ears. You can only give the same sermon so many times. As for playing hard, I agree that in the past the team always seemed to respond to him and gave good efforts (with a few exceptions, i.e. Chicago game). This year though I don't agree. That team that showed up in KC for the opener was not playing hard, not to mention half of the Jaguars and Bills games. They often times this year have seemed unprepared and not ready to give a big effort. I think Herm is a solid individual and I have actively supported him up until the Baltimore fiasco this year, but alas I think a change may now be necessary. Is Herm going to want to sit around a couple of years and let a brand new Offense grow to be successful, or will he (and Bradway for that matter) try some bandaid fixes to keep the team fairly competetive and secure their jobs. Should be interesting...
Oh, I can imagine the venom they must have been spewing last night. Anyway, I'm on the boat that they just keep him hanging the rest of the year (it's not like he's not getting paid after the suspension), and then cut him in the off-season. I personally wouldn't touch him if I was managing a team....man i was there last night, and they HATE his GUTS
The word came out today that the Giants & Jets have agreed on using 360Architects as the designers of the 90,000 seat facility. Their design should be available for viewing by mid December.
These are the same architects who were commissioned by the Jets to build the NYSCC.
Looks like the Beautiful Glass lady (minus a lid) may have found a new home - on the other side of the Hudson!
Nice. So far the Jets have gotten everything that they wanted from the Giants; moved the Giants training away area away from the stadium, got an oval 90,000 seats with suites all around instead of on one side, and got their own architects. Stepchild no more...
Welcome to the site baamf. Don't be shy start posting and give your thoughts- just no mentions about Max's lack of hair
Thanks for the welcome, and don't worry Max hair is over-rated. Hey Faba, I see you are in Holmdel, I used to work at the old Bell Labs on Crawfords Corner Road. Nice area...

Been a member of the other jet boards for a while and a lurker here for the past month or so. Hopefully I can provide some input...
