  1. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/18485752/antonio-brown-records-unaware-mike-tomlin-addressing-pittsburgh-steelers-team-locker-room "When you get to this point in the journey.. not alot needs to be said. Let's say very little moving forward. Let's start our preparations now. We just spotted these assh*les [Patriots] a day and a half. They played yesterday. Our game got moved to tonight. We're going to touch down at 4 o'clock in the fvcking morning. So be it! We'll be ready for their ass. Keep a low profile, and let's get ready to ball like this up there again in a few days, and be right back at it. That's our story." --Mike Tomlin
  2. Bingo. A money grab from an organization that's gone through 1 change (colors) in 35 years? I guess the same can be said for the New York Giants, who've gone through 4 different jersey colors, 8 different uniform designs, 3 different logo's, and 4 different helmets in 92 years.
  3. I think you might see three things: 1) They may remove the circle around the logo. 2) The shoulder pads probably are gone. 3) I could see them offsetting the logo's color, based on the jersey. Other teams do this. When Toronto wears their white jersey, their logo's blue. When they wear the blue jersey, the logo's white. Same with Calgary. White logo, yellow logo, black logo, red logo, etc. based on what color jersey they're wearing. In the end the Devils could be left with something like this..
  4. "We all have had to grow up at different times in our lives. It's time for him [Odell Beckham] to do that. It's time for him to grow up. He's been here for three years now. He's a little bit of a lightning rod because of what he does off the football field. Everybody knows he's a gifted player, but there are things he does that he needs to look at himself in the mirror and be honest with himself. We'll help him with that, but he has to help himself. He's a smart guy, but sometimes he doesn't do smart things. It comes down to him being responsible. We'll definitely hold him accountable for the vandalism he did to the wall in Green Bay. One-thousand percent. I spoke to him about that today. When Odell comes to my office, I tell him the truth. He heard the truth today, and I think he's going to do the things that he needs to do to be accountable for of his actions going forward." --Jerry Reese ..and with that folks.. Mr. Maniac has just been put on notice. FINAL notice
  5. Hats off to a Miami Dolphins team that had the most successful season they've had in 9 years. Your fans should be very proud of the year you had, and the effort your team put forth. You started 1-4, and then went an improbable 9-2 the rest of the way. That's heart you can't buy. Heart I wish my team had. Will you improve on that next season with an 11-12 win year? Who knows. But imo it's a safe bet to assume you'll have another 10-6 record again. You've got some great young players that play their asses off.. a Top 3 defense.. a franchise QB.. and a Head Coach that got his players to buy into the program. Your offense needs some playmakers, that you'll no-doubt add in the offseason. I was wrong about Mike Tannenbaum. I'm man enough to admit that.
  6. http://nypost.com/2017/01/05/how-john-maras-ultimatum-led-to-a-giants-transformation/ "The key to this Giants roster came two days after last season ended. On that day, John Mara met with reporters and said of general manager Jerry Reese: “Jerry knows this is on him. I’ve had that discussion. You can’t hide from it. You can’t hide from that record. It’s up to you to get it fixed because the last three years are just not acceptable.” Mara then gave a blank check to Reese. He used it to sign defensive end Olivier Vernon, defensive tackle Damon Harrison and cornerback Janoris Jenkins — a trio that propelled the Giants into the playoffs. The total bill came to just under $200,000,000.00 " This is EXACTLY the reason that I believe Todd Bowles wasn't fired. I wholeheartedly believe a similar conversation took place between Woody & Maccagnan, that didn't make it's way through the media. Firing Bowles basically buys Maccagnan another 2-3 more years. Keeping Bowles however, keeps the two of them connected. If the Jets put out another 4-12, 5-11 season.. then they're BOTH not making it to Year #4. If anyone heard the Maccagnan interview B&C did this morning on WFAN, Maccagnan sounded agitated and subdued. And I absolutely LOVED it! This guy has done absolutely nothing in two years outside of the Fitzpatrick\Marshall moves. His signings have been more cherry-picking other teams castaways, in: Erin Henderson & Matt Forte (both in their 30's when we signed them) Steve McLendon, Jeremy Ross, Bruce Carter, Jarvis Jenkins, CJ Spiller, Stevan Ridley, Zac Stacy, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Cromartie, etc. They're a group of the land of misfit toys, players that other teams didn't want. His two drafts have been just as poor. Hackenberg couldn't get on the field as a 4th stringer.. who's owner didn't even refute the ocean comment. Devin Smith, Lorenzo Mauldin, Bryce Petty, Leo Williams FELL to the Jets, so I'm not going to stand up and cheer for the guy for that. Honestly.. stand back and look at the whole body of work. What the fvck has he done these last two years?? So let Woody put a gun to his head and have him put the latte down, roll up his sleeves, pick of the phone and fix this sh!t. Because I have no problem getting rid of the both of these two clowns after this season, if the same sh!t product returns to the field.
  7. I don't see how a guy that threw 5,700 yrds -- 33 TD's over the last 2 years, with a 14-14 record is going to get big bucks. Add in the fact that he'll be on his 6th different OC since 2012. (Cam Cameron, Jim Caldwell, Gary Kubiak, Greg Roman, Anthony Lynn) When you're a QB and you're constantly learning a new offense every season, that ruins young quarterbacks. (ask Sanchez) I think the Osweiler deterioration in particular will dissuade teams from giving $$ to TT. I envision Tyrod taking a spot where he'll go in camp competing for a starting role. If the Jets were to sign Taylor in addition to Cutler (and Hackenberg as the 3rd) let them compete, winner gets starter.. I'd be down for that.
  8. My formula in ranking where a QB is in the NFL, has always been simple. "Name the one's better in the league" -- If the list stops at 5, 10.. or even 15 (arguably) ..then it's easier to make a case that you have a legitimate STARTER. If you start listing 20-25 other guys that you'd prefer over your guy (which is where I imagine Bills fans are with Taylor) then you really don't have anything more than just an average guy. Two back-to-back seasons @ 8-8 aren't "failures" imo, with a bottom ¼ QB. ..and regarding Rex returning, I can absolutely see it happening. The only reason why it would get more media scrutiny and hyperbole, is because it's the Jets.. but honestly, WHO GIVES A FVCK! The two years that saw him win 20 regular season games, and 4 more playoff games shouldn't be overblown.. but you can't erase them either. I'm not saying it would be like when the Redskins brought back Joe Gibbs. --that wouldn't be fair, Gibbs won Superbowls. But Rex did have success here. If Lou can bring back Larry 3 different times.. and George can bring back Martin 5 different times.. then why can't Woody call in Rex to take a HC'ing spot that seemingly no one else would want anyway??
  9. Mark Sanchez, Kellen Clemens, Michael Vick, Tim Tebow, Geno Smith, Mark Brunell, Tyrod Taylor, EJ Manuel, Matt Simms, Greg McElroy. That's the: *REX 10* as I like to call them. Those are the QB's he's had to play with since 2009. And those ain't just the backups either who played preseason either. ALL TEN played regular season games under Rex. With those 10, Ryan went 65-68.
  10. No, it really isn't.... and don't think for a second that wasn't the reasoning being the timing of this. His roster over these last 2 seasons wasn't bad.. but it wasn't 10-11 wins worthy either. It was about average, which is where he had them. At 16-16, his Bills tenure would've been a better overall percentage (.500 ) than that of Doug Marrone, Chan Gailey, Perry Fewell, nose Jauron, Mike Mularkey, Gregg Williams.. and every other Head Coach that organization has had since Wade Phillips was hired in 1998. So how do you make sense of firing the best HC your franchise has had in 20 years?? --through smoke & mirrors, that's how! ..if I'm Rex, I put the TV career on hold after this, and crave vengeance. I gotta believe Todd Bowles seat just got white hot.
  11. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Jets go out and actually acquire two QB's at this point, with Hack as the 3rd holding the clipboard. Whether that's going out to get a guy like Cutler, and then picking up Kaepernick too. Or trading for Romo and then signing RG3. I don't see Woody putting up with mediocrity at the quarterback position anymore. AND DON'T BE SURPRISED if Rivers can't be had! The Chargers are 13-30 over the last 33 games WITH HIM since 2014.. so wtf does it even matter at this point. Either way, I feel confident the Jets will have a legitimate QB next season. There's several players available for the taking. I don't look at him returning as just some pipedream either. I see it as a reasonable scenario. What better way to protect your investments of Sheldon & Mo, than bringing back the guy those players (and the rest of the team) played their asses off for?
  12. Groh is an analyst for bowling and college football on WCES in Georgia. Herman Edwards works for ESPN.. and Mangini's current whereabouts are unknown. They're all not involved in football anymore CR. They're not Assistants, they're not Consultants, they're not Coordinators. They're nothing. Moreover: from everything I'm reading, it appears that Rex Ryan will not get an opportunity to coach his 9th season after this year. He's only finished above .500 twice in his career (and has a losing record overall) so I can't really say I blame the Pegula's for thinking enough's enough. I love Rex Ryan personally, and obviously he's the best of the bunch.. but it gets harder and harder to defend him being more than just a glorified defensive coordinator each passing year. He's toned down the clownish antics considerably.. but at the end of the day, this is still a results based league. You talk about the "last seasons" hurting the sample size.. but I would argue it's just the opposite. The BEGINNING is what hurts the sample size. All 5 HC's listed have the same common thread.... they started great. This is very typical if you look at other track-records throughout the league, due largely to the timing of WHEN an owner fires a head coach. It's commonly after an abysmal season. Thus.. the team is rewarded with a cakewalk schedule. The REAL litmus test is how a HC performs AFTER that, against quality opponents. I'm too lazy to run a metric on it.. but I'd be willing to wager that the vast majority of games against teams with winning records didn't go well for any of the 5 mentioned above. That's the difference between a HC that has experience, versus a guy who's going through scenarios for the first time. It's a stance that Jet fans have had for 17 years. We've been saying the same thing since 2000: "________, was outcoached and outclassed again"
  13. Yeah. Gary Kubiak's another excellent example. The guy's 20-8 over the last 2 seasons, with 4 different quarterbacks. Yes, Denver has an exceptional defense.. but Kubiak has coached over 150 games. In 10 seasons as a Head Coach, he only finished under .500 three times. I wasn't making the point of Carroll being exceptional. I never said I want a HOF HC.. I said I want an experienced HC. Someone that doesn't have to go through their growing pains on my team. I'm done with that. I've had it for 17 seasons now. Regarding your Harbaugh\Reid comment.. YES, that point is true. However.. their organizations that they were on didn't sandwich their hiring's with 5 other guys off the exact same blueprint in a 17 year span. There were other experienced hires made before and after those coaches correspondingly. ------- Woody doesn't like to hire HC's with exp. because HC's with exp. cost $$$.. and he only wants to spend $$$ on guys that sell jerseys. Period! Until I see him hire an exp. HC (doesn't have to be a HOFer) I will no longer support this product. I can't.
  14. • Al Groh: DC, first-year rookie HC with no exp. • Herman Edwards: DC, first-year rookie HC with no exp. • Eric Mangini: DC, first-year rookie HC with no exp. • Rex Ryan: DC, first-year rookie HC with no exp. • Todd Bowles: DC, first-year rookie HC with no exp. 5 consecutive rookie head coaches since 2000, who all came here with no resume. 5 coaches in-a-row from the exact same blueprint. It. Just. Doesn't. Work... There could\should be quite alot of experienced HC's to choose from after Black Monday for the Jets come January. Tom Coughlin, Norv Turner, Mike McCarty, John Fox, Marvin Lewis, Sean Payton, Mike Shanahan, etc. But WHOEVER the fvck the Jets end up picking.. it NEEDS to be someone who's done this before. It NEEDS to be someone who knows wtf they're doing. It NEEDS to be someone who comes with a resume in hand. I will not stick around to have my intelligence insulted for a 6th consecutive first-year rookie DC\HC, and (judging from the amount of empty seats) no one else will either. I'm very proud of the message the Jets fanbase has sent here. The PNL shows merchandise is at an all-time low. TV ratings are at an 11 year low. Attendance is at an 18 year low. IT IS EPIC! We are all sending a clear message to Woody Johnson that this will no longer be tolerated. That we will no longer support this mess. It is a boycott very similar to what the Met fans did to the Wilpons a few years back. It's a boycott that's long overdue. For the record: I don't believe that Leonard Williams, Darron Lee, Sheldon Richardson, Mo Wilkerson, David Harris, Darrelle Revis, Marcus Gilchrist, Buster Skrine, and the rest of the defense.. have all just coincidentally forgot how to play football at the same time. I don't.... sorry. I believe they're either being coached incorrectly.. or they've all formed a mutiny against Bowles. Either the case.. this could be an easier fix than the media is making it out to be, by simply removing Bowles. I know I often get attacked on this board for my perennial optimism regarding the Jets. But the Cowboys were 4-12 last season. And the Bengals were 13-3. And the Panthers were 15-1. Things change rather radically in this league, despite rosters staying the same. Let me see what this same team can do with an exp. HC before I go trading\cutting players. Having a HC who knows what they're doing is paramount in the NFL. It's more important than any other component. You don't NEED an all-world team. You don't NEED an all-world defense. You don't NEED a HOF QB. Yes, Belichick has Brady.. but Joe Flacco isn't a HOF QB.. he just has John Harbaugh. Russell Wilson is not a HOF QB.. but the Seahawks have Pete Carroll. Alex Smith isn't a HOF QB.. but Kansas City has Andy Reid. It's a safe bet that (most of the time) the good teams have a HC who knows what the fvck they're doing. Blow up the coaching staff before you blow up the roster, and bring in someone that can coach these guys.
  15. Gronk is the definition of a supernova. He shines brighter than anyone when he's playing.. but I can't see his career lasting that much longer. (despite the fact that he's only 27) He's had 3 back surgeries, a torn ACL, a blown-out knee, a fractured ankle, a broken arm, and underwent 4 surgeries on his forearm. This is all only since 2012. He's one major injury away from calling it a career, and even with only 80 some odd career games, he's HOF worthy in my book. That's the definition of a supernova.
