  1. Done with Adams and his crybaby drama. And of course I understand he's not going to playing football for his entire life and there's nothing wrong with getting what you can when you can, because careers can end in an instant. Thing is the Jets should be in no hurry here. He's under contract for several more years, they have no viable trade offers right now. He plays a position where it really makes no sense to break the bank over. Let him twist in the wind. If you don't get the kings ransom you want, let him cry, let him sulk
  2. It was true with Pat Burns too. And Lemaire.
  3. I want a good proven coach. A veteran coach with a track record of winning who has led teams at various stages in their development (building teams, win now teams etc) Laviolette fits the bill. Other than the Isles where he was foolishly fired after two seasons. He made the playoffs both years, Laviolette has been to the Cup Finals with all three teams he's coached since, winning once. We should be out front offering him a contract right now
  4. New York Giants kicker arrested in hit-and-run investigation, police say https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/17/us/new-york-giants-kicker-rosas-arrested/index.html (CNN)New York Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas was arrested and charged with misdemeanor hit-and-run and driving on a suspended license in Butte County, California, on Monday, according to a California Highway Patrol report. Rosas was driving his black Chevrolet SUV at 100 mph when he failed to stop at a red light and T-boned a Ford pickup truck, according to the report. Witnesses told investigators that the driver attempted to drive away from the crash site when his SUV broke down. He then fled from the scene on foot, the report states.
  5. I don't like the DH but I was already mentally preparing for its inevitable arrival years ago so I'm numb to it. But I did enjoy and appreciate the extra degree of strategy that it brought to the game. Ads on the uniforms I absolutely hate hate HATE. I understand it yes, but once they come on they will NEVER come off and as usual, it will lead to more and more nonsense. It will happen in the NHL too. They ruined the boards, they're taking up more and more space on the ice, they're digitally imposed behind the glass. Oh and ticket prices are still obscene. Never much of an NBA fan but when I click through the channels and see the classic legendary Celtics uniforms with an ad on it I just shake my head. It's gone from sacred to worthless overnight. Not sure if they've agreed on this but I hope there is major pushback. Granted with everybody so desperate for sports they're thinking this is the perfect time to slip this in. And you just know the Mets will have some embarrassing sponsor patch that will result in us being the butt of jokes again
  6. Colon is maybe spring training cannon fodder at this point. His last year in the majors with 2018 Texas he really was just taking up a roster spot on a hopeless team and getting battered all over the yard. Now fast forward two years. Sure maybe the control will still be there but the velocity won't and he would get absolutely battered. No thanks
  7. https://sports.yahoo.com/new-york-giants-deandre-baker-seattle-seahawks-quinton-dunbar-armed-robbery-assault-charges-florida-nfl-233111543.html Insane story here. Unfathomable stupidity. And he was the Giants 1st round pick last year. Going to end up another strike against Gettleman and another black mark on the Giants franchise
  8. Per Manish Mehta the Jets are close to signing Logan Ryan. It makes perfect sense, scheme fit is perfect. If Desir pans out and Bless Austin continues to improve we may actually get somewhat decent CB play in 2020. Poole is a top slot corner. Overall the Jets may field a quality defense in 2020. Above average for sure if everyone is able to stay healthy
  9. Yea. Mandarich was a monster himself but just an absolute mental trainwreck as well. A total jerk and just juicing out of his mind I'll trust Douglas on this one. It's so rare to see someone of that size with that kind of athleticism and wingspan. If you properly coach him up and give him the right kind of guidance and mentorship he can be an all time great at his position. It's not often you're able to say that about a player.
  10. Big one here. Out of nowhere. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001110390/article/patriots-to-trade-rob-gronkowski-to-buccaneers Tom Brady is in a new home, and a familiar face is joining him for a play date. Rob Gronkowski is coming out of retirement to again play in the NFL, but he'll be doing so in Tampa. The New England Patriots are trading Gronkowski and a seventh-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
  11. To me personally it's starting to feel a bit bleak regarding if they have a season, how long it will be...what kind of playoffs we'd have. I can see them using this kind of "special" year to expand playoffs and get more teams involved. Right now I'm holding out hope...maybe by May 15th they can reconvene and do two weeks of spring training, and then start a season June 1st. Get 4 full months of baseball year. But even that seems too optimistic Right now everybody involved fears that nightmare scenario of opening too early and having a player (or players) get seriously sick or god forbid perish. Then everything will have to be shuttered again
  12. Oh come on Jamal. Love him as a player (though don't see him as untradeable) but he's a bit of a petulant baby at times. And he loves drama. Though he always shows up to play He's under contract for two more years...NEXT offseason is when they'll get into the nitty gritty of contract negotiations to make him a Jet for life. He's just going to have to be patient. Douglas is going to stick to his guns. He's going to listen to any offers that come his way but it's doubtful Adams ever gets moved
  13. This was a reasonable contract. Why the hell didn't Douglas bring him back for that? Will Enunwa even be ready to play this year? All we have now is Crowder Douglas needs to get some weapons for Sam. For a team as thin at WR as we were already you just can't let somebody like Anderson depart with nobody to replace those catches
  14. Wow. We don't even have to have a season apparently for the baseball gods to fvck us over.
  15. Like these two signings. Kyle Van Roten and Connor McGovern. McGovern finally stabilizes the center position Tom Pelissero @TomPelissero · Mar 17 The #Jets are signing former #Broncos C Connor McGovern to a three-year, $27 million deal that includes $18M fully guaranteed, per source. Ian Rapoport @RapSheet · 53m The #Jets are signing former #Panthers OL Greg Van Roten, source said. One of the top O-linemen available.
  16. Wow Miami going all out for Van Noy. 4 years 51 million!
  17. Jets needed an offensive lineman badly and didn't seal the deal with Conklin or Glasgow. PATHETIC I understand they can get a really good one with their draft slot, but do you really want to have no choice but to get one? What about protecting Darnold? Lots of smoke but no fire so far with the Jets. They're in on Clowney, on Van Noy. But nothing
  18. I may have been a bit wrong about Alonso. Criticized him when he and his agent threw a fit about not being called up and issuing a statement in a sort of "who are you to behave this way, claiming you deserve to be in the majors and it's an affront you weren't called up" but you know what since then he's done nothing but say all the right things, do all the right things, and perform spectacularly
  19. Well he'll probably be forced to cancel his shows too
  20. And it seemed so harmless too. Tweaked his "side" well what does that even mean? An oblique? Could something be torn there?
  21. That was a weird one for Nieds. Thankfully we can laugh about it but giveaways like that were few and far between.
  22. Lamoriello really underestimated the Isles need for offense this deadline
  23. Arthur Imperatore. Still kicking at 94!
  24. Not constant chances yet. He's not there yet. And yes he was invisible for some long stretches this year. Him playing well now doesn't erase an otherwise disappointing rookie season production wise, but he is showing some encouraging signs and yes it would help if people on the receiving end of his work put the puck in the net too. That hasn't been happening.
