    As maybe the only poster on JetNation who has been to Dacula, Georgia, I can attest it is a perfectly lovely little down north of Atlanta in the very beginning foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.    It's in Gwinnet County, which is part of the massive urban sprawl from Atlanta - but far enough out to retain a lot of it's rural identity.  It's probably closer to Athens, GA and the University of Georgia than to downtown Atlanta

    Uhmmm yeah no you are not the only one to have been there lived in Gwinnett for roughly ten years - just came back from visiting family who still live in Loganville.

  2. That is an incredible draft...however my first thought is by the time they all grow up we would be looking at a lot of money on their second deals and be in the same situation the next year (19 picks in the following draft!!!) I know everyone won't pan out and there are Comp Picks for the some of losses but that's still 14+19=33 rookies in 2 years.  I also would have liked more offensive lineman especially in the middle rounds the draft for that pipeline, and did I hear right only 1 corner?  We would definitely would be able to have the best trade packages to move up in this or the following draft which would consolidate the number of picks...Also go get Harbaugh to coach this team.

  3. A lot of his comments seem like he is upset he is not the Belle of the Ball anymore...even his interview this morning...like Sanchez is supposed to confide in him or that he should be part of Sanchez' advisory committee...does he ever have anything good to say?

  4. I was also at the practice...the stadium wasnt hooked up like I would assume it would be for an actual game day...as far as Jets logos, photos, paraphernalia etc...I agree the upper seats seemed kinda steep but all in all it will be a good look when Monday Night comes around...I will try to post some of the pics I took later.

    ...Love everything I hear from him so far. Keep up the good work Mark!!! :sign0098:

    I have to agree there is one word that comes to mind as he interviews and that is SMOOTH...I like how he asked what she said then replied "oh a compliment" I cant remember in all my years following the JETS being this happy after a QB interview feeling this good...ok maybe its a little premature but I Have earned it!!!


  6. Go and get Braylon Edwards:

    The Jets have sold the future anyway by dealing away all their picks for two players this year. Obviously, they have no interest in using the draft to fill holes, so they should just go ahead and burn next year's #1 and Thomas Jones (plus another pick or player) to get Edwards out of Cleveland.

    Currently, the Browns have only Jamal Lewis at HB, and they already went out and drafted two receivers this year to replace Edwards. They did not draft a RB. The Giants, long considered the top suitor to pick up Edwards, went ahead and drafted, not one, but THREE guys to catch the ball, effectively cancelling them off the list as a potential landing spot.

    The Browns need and the Jets need make this a perfect match.

    Tannenbaum hinted at something big yesterday, telling the collected media that the Jets "weren't finished" and that they should stay ready for something else. Could he have been pointing to an Edwards/Jones swap? Could be. It is clear that Mangini wants "his guys" around him, and Thomas Jones was a soldier for him this year. It would be a great match.

    Add to that, Edwards' trade value will never be lower. The Browns drafted two receivers, making it clear that Edwards will never see the new contract he wants from the Browns. Post-draft, Mangini has to choose between having a disgruntled Edwards in his locker room, potentially poisoning the water for his re-building process, or dealing Edwards on the cheap, selling the fan base on the league's leading rusher (Jones) and a pretty #1 pick in next year's draft. He will be hailed as a genius.

    Add to this the fact that Mangini will likely be dealing Brady Quinn for another #1 pick, which would make selling Edwards for a less-than-huge package easier to deal with across the board.

    Go get Edwards and it immediately changes the Jets' offense the second he puts on a uniform.

    I was saying this yesterday...I actually think they could get him for TJ & 2010 2nd & 4th (5th would be even better)...can only hope...

  7. Also,

    He wore the green dot mic-helmet for the Ravens last year. He is the guy Rex called all his plays into and the guy that relayed the plays to the rest of Baltimore's defense. There certainly has to be something said about that type of continuity on a defense where 9 of the 11 starters are new to the system.

    Thats real big, I wasnt aware of that, tremendous plus!!!

  8. As i sat and watched with hope and excitement as KC did a great job on that last drive only to have that same old sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach as the 2 passes by J-Mac were dropped which would have brought us within 1 point...and the pass the Coles that was thrown just a tad bit too low...I said damn I wont condemn J-Mac because he probably like the rest of the receivers needs time to adjust to a ball with quite a bit more zip on it...then I thought ...


  9. Knicks have talent, it's just that that talent is incredibly young. Channing Frye and Eddy Curry, along with David Lee are going to be a deadly big man combo. With Marbury and Steve "washed-up" Francis, along with Nate and Quentin Richardson they should be half decent.

    I say 39-45 wins.

    I would have liked to agree with you on this but due to Curry and Frye lack of rebounding the Knicks are looking for the right deal to package around Frye as the focal point to getting a JO...KG type of player, i really wanted frye to work out but he definitely hit a soph slump this past season i think he would be well suited for an uptempo team a la PHX, not that curry cant handle the load over time but i think the Knicks need a weak side defender like when they had Camby patrolling with Pat...dont know what trade will pan out if any but Frye is the knick mostl likely to be dealt
