  1. More or less, this is a response to the previous post...

    First things first, all Jets fans wanted Nnamdi. We cant run from this fact. A Rex Ryan defense with one shutdown corner is dangerous. A Rex Ryan defense with two shutdown corners, both of whom can play the run, would have been downright scary.

    Is 30mm a ton of money to pay a DB? Yes sir. Is 30mm a lot of money to pay a 30 year old db? yes sir....However, lets face facts. After 31 years, we are not concerned with "future salary cap considerations", or overpaying a middle aged man. We are concerned with winning a Super Bowl...once. Thats it, end of story.

    So, did we care about the money? of course not...BUT, would we have cared about the money if it came at the expense of building the rest of a team that we hope can finally climb that elusive mountain?

    Say what you will about the way the Nnamdi sweepstakes played out, but please don't attempt to convince me that Mike Tannenbaum has been anything short of the best General Manager this team has had in my lifetime. Over the course of his tenure he has consistently found a way to build winners, manage the cap, attract talent and put a viable contender on the field.

    So he lost one today, so be it. Lets not forget that this team...the team Mike Tannenbaum built, and is about to re-sign, was a 3rd down stop away from handing the ball back to Mark Sanchez so that he could complete one of the greatest comebacks in playoff history, and take us to a place we haven't been since 1969.

  2. Anyone else catch rex miced up on the nfl network a few minutes ago? Rex on the NFL network reminds me of when Hogan and The Macho Man Randy Savage joined forces to become The "mega powers". it was just too good to be true....

  3. Aside from this looking and feeling like a pre season game,, we have to feel good about seeing Mcknight running like this. Dare i say it...he looks a heck of a lot more explosive than someone else we normally see carrying the ball.

    Danny Woodwho??

  4. Because I did....its been 11 years since we were last here, and despite having a solid core of young talent, in this league- there are no guarentees we'll be back again for another 11.

    Here is what I know....the Colts are good, damn good. But here is what I also know....7 of their first 14 wins, were games they won by just 5 points or less. Point being, this was NOT a team like the pats in 07' who just blew people out of the water..

    The funny thing is, this Jets team is 1 win away from erasing 40 years of pain. Yet at the same time, they are one loss away from simply adding another chapter....

    Who is with me on calling all this talk of "win or lose the jets had a great run and have something to build on" crap a bunch of BS? F it....there are no guarentees moving forward. THIS GAME IS WINNABLE, AND G-D DAMN...I WANT TO WIN IT!

  5. Guys...what I was saying was not that their is no blame to be put on the defense. Quite the contrary, certainly they are saddled with their share of the blame for not being able to make "the key stop". But what I am saying is that for the #1 defense in the league to have a .500 record means the offense isnt giving them much help, and from my vantage point I see a young qb whose decision making is the chief culprit....not that im re-inventing the wheel with these sentiments, but for the love of g-d were not asking for 28 pts p/game, were asking for double digits!

  6. Hey guys....I wanted to post a quick message about these guys Tailwaiters. If you havent heard, they provide a tailgating service at the meadowlands, maybe you have heard the ad on 1050. Anyway, I used them a few weeks back (Actually twice in a week). I am in no way affiliated with them (g-ds honest truth), but I did want to post on how impressed I was. The tent, food, etc was all set up when I got to the meadowlands and these guys really couldnt have been more helpful, just a really cool idea....so if you are planning to head out to anymore games this season, I would 100% give them a shout.

  7. This team went 9-7 a year ago. They upgraded defensively in the form of Scott, Leonord, Stickland, Sheppard, etc...offensively they fell off in the form of losing a aging qb, and a WR, but retained the core and saw young talent such as Dustin Keller and Stuckey mature. Not to mention the coach that took the brunt of the blame was shown the door, replaced with a reputed defensive whiz who was asked to improve on an already solid defense. Yet, the football world is SUPRISED that this team is a contendor? I just dont get it. How can the ESPN talking heads of the world actually be suprised by this teams success? The talent, the experience, the staff.....what am I missing here, this isnt a mistake...this team is just (gasp) good! thoughts?

  8. Yes, It seems perfectly logical that when presented with 8-10 million, a coach would turn it down based on the fact that the Jets are "second class citizens". Regardless of whether or not this is true, this may be one of the stupider things I have read in a long time....get real.

  9. Hey guys-

    I am the commisioner (and a damn good one) of my league, a league of friends. Recently I have been met with some pushback, and people complaining that the regular season as no significance as we dont pay anyone but the the champion, and the runner-up. One idea that has been proposed is to increase the buy-in by a few bucks, and payout to the weekly points winner. I'm not thrilled with that idea, so I was wondering if any of you have any creative payouts that you do to ensure the regular season maintains significance??


  10. Thank you guys for the positive feedback, Im glad you enjoyed it!

    As for you Max....the front page of JN now resembles the yellow pages, and Im the sellout, WTF!?!? My demands are as such.... $20 per post, and I want another one of those free lap dances you put me on to the last time we saw each other...As they say in "the biz"....Ass, Gas or Cash,nobody post's for free!

  11. Shodann, I think your missing my point a bit...I AM NOT suggesting Kellen be run out of town, much to the contrary. I believe nothing can be sufficiently proved in just a handful of games, in a down year. However, based on what we have seen, to say that Kellen Clemens gives the team "the best chance to win" is just foolish. No, Chad is not an elite, Manning, Brady type QB. But he is certainly better than most, and finding an upper echelon signal caller is a task that is easier said than done. Obviously the ideal situation would be to find a guy with the big arm who also can digest the mental aspects of the game. But this is a rare hybrid, and if given the choice, the smarter, safer qb tends to be more succesul....my point is that we, the fans, tend to put too much stock and hype in draft order. If the draft has proven anything its that the whole process is an in-excact science, remind me again where Brady was chosen? Fortunately the Jets dont have to much financial commitment in Clemens and in no way should they, or we, feel overly commited to him....Sure, I hope he pans out and I believe he posses the physical tools to do so. But do you want me to blow smoke and say that he has been anything short of unimpressive? I just cant do that....

  12. Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad you guys enjoyed them...

    In response to the statement above, and I preface my thoughts by stressing the fact that I do not wish to engage in an online war of words, I find this sort of thing to be a waste of time. I do not mind you reffering to me as a clown as you are entitled to your opinion...However, two points...

    1) I never said the team should lose the game. What I said was that a win would do more harm than good toward the organization's long term goals. Which, by winning, is precisely what happened. The difference b/w 3-13 and 4-12 means little aside from the chance at selecting at the top end of a relatively thin draft class....a thin group that happens to contain a rare RB talent.

    2) When you say that Chad Pennington is not the best qb on this team, what tangible evidence is this statement based on? The bottom line, however you want to dilute it, is that CP fits every criteria needed to win this argument when compared to every other qb on the roster. I am assuming, that you believe Kellen Clemens is the better player...with that in mind, given the ample sample we have seen from him, what lends you to believe this is the case? Is it his grasp of the offense, the ability to read a defense, his pocket presence? Or is it simply a combination of arm strength and draft position? Please dont get me wrong, I understand Kellen is a young player and he deserves more of a chance than he got (and his o-line didnt help him out much), but my point is, Chad has been a very profficient player in this league for a long time, and I can direct you to a laundry list of of qb's with rifle arms that failed to succeed at the pro level. Dont let the fact that he was a 2nd round pick and has garnered a large following blind you from the truth that the evidence thus far suggests...

    all the best,


  13. Currently, with three wins, the Jets are in a 3 way tie for the 2nd worst record in the league. A win vs. NE would jump them into a big lump of teams with 4 wins and most likely drop them out of the top 5 of the draft...with that said, is a win in NE worth it?? I say yes, by a large margin....any thoughts

  14. Not that it friggin mattered, but Mangini made it clear this afternoon that Jon Vilma's injured knee, is the right one....finally putting to bed the endless speculation that it was possibly the left knee. I am glad we cleared this up....
