It’s about Ficken  time ! 

While passing on Heath Miller Or when we traded 3 1st rounders for D-Rob. Or when we traded a just entering his prime Santana Moss to bring back Coles… How Bradway has managed to not be

Saw this....maybe he could end up with the Jets?

If you feel this strongly about JD make some noise tomorrow at training camp.

JOE MUST GO signs and chants. 

Act crazy like you did back in the day at Gate D.

Stop it. 

Are you Ficken crazy. 

I want to see him get booed at camp or escorted out. 

He talks the talk here let him do it for real at the camp if he's that unhappy with JD and the situation here.

Hes clowning everyone and youre falling into it.  Hes not going to do anything to get himself booed or escorted out of a practice

You actually believe he talks the talk here and would do it in front of any group of fans?  Like maybe he'll do the Gase is the king of Florham Park or JD sucks, Zach sucks, etc etc?

Maybe he needs a little encouragement.

He's amusing. 

I don't take him serious anymore. 

I'm not falling for anything. 

Give me a Ficken break.

I only see 4 GM’s in the Hall so not much of a fun fact. Now that Gase is no longer here to suck off it appears that this years posts to waste our time is going to be spent trashing Douglas.

gee, ya think?  No matter what he says, he can't get over the Gase butthurt.  That's what all this is really about.  Don't believe anything else written.

I don't think JD values FG kickers as much as he should...there's no reason the team shouldn't have a competent kicker 3 years in a row.  Finding decent kickers and back up QBs shouldn't be this complicated. 

Place Kicker should be the last position he’s looking fill, and I’m pretty content with the way he’s going about it. He brought in Naggar who beat out Ficken, and now he’s got another K in there to compete with Naggar. That’s good enough for me. 
 
The other way would be to spend a draft pick or free agent money on one, and the team has too many other issues to throw resources at the K position. You do that when your team is more complete and competing for playoffs and beyond. That’s not where this team is at.

Well the good news is that Ammendola has been  All Big 12 First team Academic 2016-19.  He can probably win a spelling bee if he has to. :)

Huh?

Nugent was a 2nd round draft pick and Jolley was a swap of picks.

Thats all

That was a bizarre year all around. Ty Law and Jay Fiedler, the big off-season signings 😂

There have been some truly amazing apologias for dumbass Jets moves over the years, but even after all this time, “#actually the Jolley trade was a swap of picks” still reigns supreme

Ficken wasn’t a total bust he had good moments and made some clutch kicks so I’m surprised they cut him so fast and didn’t allow him to compete in training camp. He had injuries and maybe that played in JD’s decision. He might not have been kicking competitively in camp. I guess they’ll bring someone else in to compete. And probably Ficken will get a contract offer with another team if he’s healthy which doesn’t mean he’s going to make the team.

If you really think about it the Jets trading for Tebow makes sense, because now we can’t lose to them the same way again.

Let’s hope he brings in some kicking consultants before he picks the next one

The thing is you don't have to invest much in to signing a decent kicker or back up that's kinda my point.  There's a middle ground between giving a kicker a multi year deal and settling for whatever crap is left on the waiver wire.

Other than it was, yeah.  You can argue it wasnt all you want but I never apologized for the deal, it sucked in every way for every stupid reason Bradway came up with

And the point was we didnt use a #1 on Nugent, I could care less about Jolley

Totally disagree, good long term kickers are like gold, you find one you pay him, they never break the bank money wise.

Kicker is never a priority until you lose a couple of games because of one then a team runs around scrambling to find one.

We had a pro bowl kicker and mccganan let him walk over a million or so bucks and since then we have had what 5 or 6 kickers?

we didn't trade a 1st round pick for just Jolley.  We also got back a 2nd rounder and a 6th rounder.

JD should have signed Jose Borregales as an udfa. 

People love rewriting history.  Tampa got there first so when Joe called Jose said HHHMMMM should I turn down Tampa (remember I am a Florida kid) and maybe win a super bowl to play with the Jets   NNNNAAAAAAAAA.

Now if you said lets use a late draft pick for him you would at least have a point.

It's going to be a fun season of Zach Wilson driving down field and getting within makeable kicking distance just for our kicker to miss wide right. 

How about we score some f**king touchdowns instead?  That’d be a nice change.

If kickers were like gold, they’d get drafted more often and cost more in free agency. Like I said, I’m happy with the process JD is going thru to find one. He’s got a guy that he likes better than last year’s starter now, and has someone in camp to compete with him. 
 
My wins expectation this year is pretty low, and I’m not concerned about losing a game or two on a missed kick this season. It’s really the least of my concerns at this stage. Hopefully the process lands the team a kicker now that they want to resign in three or four years. If it doesn’t, they can get more aggressive then.

This is some BAD logic. 
 

The Jets aren’t exactly a dominating offense. If you can’t get in the end zone you try to get points on the board with a FG attempt. Moreover in close games your entire strategy could result around how good your kicker is. 
 

Acting like a kicker isn’t a vital roster piece is some backwards you know what thinking.

Ficken ceased to be providing competition for Naggar so JD immediately signed competition. Its been Naggars job to lose for a while but you always have to have a second kicker pushing you.
