Anyone watch the Bears-Jaguars game last night?

The Jaguars didn't look as bad as I thought they would...

The Bears passing game is gonna be tough for the Jets to cover.

The New York Post reports second-round TE Jace Amaro dropped passes in training camp "as if it was a job requirement."

We knew Amaro was struggling badly with drops, but this really puts it into perspective. The leap from Texas Tech's simple spread offense to OC Marty Mornhinweg's West Coast scheme has proven daunting for Amaro. Between Amaro and Stephen Hill, who reportedly makes a highlight reel catch and follows it up with three drops, botched passes are going to be plentiful in Jets games. 

Gotta love non-biased, well researched reporting...

I think, and this will be no easy task, that if Smith gives a good showing against the nasty Bengals defense, he will be named the starter. It has to be better than just a mistake free game manager showing. He has to give the offense life and punch a couple in.

BTW, I am surprised the Tinder revelation is not getting more attention.  Anyone familiar with it knows it is not quite a match.com app.  It's match.com for a Tuesday aftenoon BJ.  I suppose Jets PR is suppressing this stuff as best they can, and I suppose this is how the fat and ugly media gets their jollies too so they don't want to write about it.  This is one short step removed from articles talking about how Jet players are getting massages at places in Cortland known for happy endings.  LOL.

Interesting analytics on QB development, especially how to evaluate future potential based on first and second year performance.  Bottom line for us Jets fans is, according to this analysis, that jury is still out on Geno (but jury will be in at conclusion of this year). Analysis also says jury out on EJ, Tannehill proven himself a loser already and Brady off the charts.  Also interesting is that Luck's stats don't support is all-world reputation though no one wants to say that out loud it seems.

Fireman Ed can wear his Sanchez jersey to Eagles games....

Jets should get a guy to lead the cheer who wears a Mangold Jersey or better yet a Richardson jersey....

The guy is brave enough to walk into a burning building but isn't brave enough to continue showing up to Jets games in his Sanchez jersey.....Pretzel logic

@jaygo This is completely false.  Anybody who thinks this is strictly a hookup app doesn't know a thing about what they're talking about.


While I have met a hookup once on this app, I've had more actual dates from this thing than match.com.


So check yourself before you wreck yourself.

I'll say it out loud about Luck...the hype is much greater than the player.

@jaygo Luck without Reggie Wayne is rather pedestrian, iirc.

@bradysucks Sanchez didn't work out here but he's a good guy. Give it up and let him go . You talking about him constantly hasn't been relevant since he went down in last years pre-season. I hope the guy does great in Philly.

Brendan

@bradysucks Jesus, are you trying to pick up the troll slack here, or something? 


Ed got harassed by Jets fans, there's no excuse for that for any reason, let alone wearing a specific jersey. 


"The guy is brave enough to walk into a burning building but isn't brave enough to continue showing up to Jets games in his Sanchez jersey.....Pretzel logic"


You serious? People went up to him in a bathroom and started with him. He can't go to games with his kids because people act like animals. Please don't take the side of the scummy section of our fanbase.

@Brendan @jaygo Hilton looked great last Thursday though.


I'll tell you who looked amazing...Gerald McCoy.

I hated Sanchez as Jets QB but always said he's probably a good guy. I feel the same about Hill

If you met me I bet you'd think I was a good guy but I promise you that you'd hate it if I was the Jets QB

Nothing here is personal....I want to live long enough to see the Jets win a championship ......and I root for guys I feel contribute to that ultimate result

You missed the point entirely Brendan

I wasn't taking sides

I was pointing out that he'd go into a burning building but he won't lead the cheer at a Jets game in a Sanchez jersey....

You'd think the burning building would be scarier (but apparently not)

Reading comprehension Brendan...

@Brendan @bradysucks 

Nobody went up to Ed and said, "Hey, turn yourself into a local celebrity."  He was the one that recruited all the attention on himself.  And look at anyone who gets noticed - eventually they become targets.  Hell, even Mother Teresa probably got accused of being a lesbian.  Does Ed deserve to be hassled?  No, and neither did Mother Teresa.  But Mother Teresa didn't quit; Ed did.


Obviously it takes someone with a thicker skin than Ed possesses to fulfill the role of Unofficial Jets Mascot.  He doesn't have what it takes, though we all appreciate his efforts.  Bottom line, he asked for it; and he got it.  And he couldn't handle it.  Sorry.

@williamg1 @Rudibager @jaygo Hahaha.  It's brilliantly designed to cut to the chase of asking the date.  You can only contact women who have already said that they like your pictures (which must be linked to facebook to help against cat fishing).  So you don't have to hunt the girls so aimlessly like on most dating websites.


I think in places like NYC where there's a high population density, there's a much better chance of finding just a simple hookup.  However, i'm not in NYC, and most women (but not all) that I've matched with were looking for an actual date.

With Mother Teresa it was actually people acussing her of getting off on people's pain and suffering.

@roadyhorns @Brendan @bradysucks i really dont get all the hate toward Fireman Ed......but then again i read some of the comments on here from some people who are utter morons...they prolly the type of people who harass a man in the bathroom...losers

Brendan
Brendan

@roadyhorns C'mon, man. He asked to have mouth-breathing dckheads accost him in the bathroom? He asked for people to lob their misdirected anger at him? 


Sorry, but adults not being able to handle their emotions isn't Ed's fault. He's a fan, I've met the guy personally and he's a legitimate fan and loved what he did. It's sad that fans feel it's their right to be a dck to a fellow fan because he's simply well-known for rooting for the team. 

Brendan

@Rudibager I can confirm in NYC it's fish/barrel stuff. A lot of people use it for hook-ups, but it's NYC and people ain't got time for dates. It's a miracle worker in terms of saving money, a date in the city costs like $150 or more. Skipping that step is great.

I know this - I'm just saying that just about everybody I get slack for not liking is probably a good guy - but it's not personal

It's about wanting guys on the field who can bring NY and all long suffering Jets fans a Super Bowl

It is what it is -

I wish guys like Sanchez luck and I'm happy he isn't a Jet. Obviously some people feel differently

@ryan5757 @bradysucks ummm, the difference is that he had to PAY to go to Jets games and get harassed...running into burning buildings was a job he got paid for...lol

@Brendan @roadyhorns This is part of the reason we can't have nice things (or chants). 

When the Jets start losing, our fans direct their anger at the wrong people (other fans).

@Brendan @roadyhorns i met the guy numerous times, even as a little kid and he was always cool as hell.......whether people wanna crap on him because they think "he made himself a celebrity" , well thats up to you.....but for those of us who actually love the Jets since we were kids, he always seemed like a standup guy....never had an issue with him...and lets be honest, he did a great job leading that chant...never forget how great that place was during that Jags playoff game in 1998....Ed had the place rocking....but there are a ton of dbags out there that need to whine and complain about the guy, and harass him in the bathroom like complete scumbags...so he stepped aside, i understand completely....ive passed up jets tickets for the simple reason that i dont wanna deal with drunk scumbags for 5 plus hours.......just read some of the foolish nonsense on here and youll be able to spot the guys that would go after Ed in the bathroom.....losers

@Brendan @Rudibager I figured that's how it got the reputation.  To automatically assume that the Jets players are just trying to hook up, as Jaygo did, would be incorrect.  Most of the Jets don't live within the city, as far as I know.

@Brendan @roadyhorns 

You seem to have an unrealistic view of what people are like.  "Does the antelope deserve to be run down and eaten by the lion?"  No, probably not, but the lion is going to do what the lion is going to do.  Ed made himself a target by making a spectacle of himself - when no one asked him to do it.  And humanity is going to do what humanity is going to do.  You can't be mad about it, any more than you can be mad at the lion.

My point is - Ed couldn't handle it.  There's nothing wrong with that.  Who could?  Who would want to?  I'm not dissing Ed whatsoever.

Brendan
Brendan

@roadyhorns "Who would want to?"


No one would want to deal with that nonsense. 


It's Jets fans own fault we're destined to have some goober or some Jersey meathead lead the cheer. Ed was made for the role, and now we're holding tryouts like a minor league team because the guy doesn't want to deal with ahole Jets fans anymore. If that toothless troglodyte with an airplane hat wins, I'm out.

@Brendan @roadyhorns 

Dude, Captain Jet is perfect.  No one is going to beat up a retarded guy in a plane hat.  Maybe somebody would, but you'd really have to dig down deep into the Raider fan base to find the guy whose going to throw batteries at a guy who drinks Ranch dressing.  And if he gets into a situation, just give him some hot wings to eat.  No one can stay violent while watching something like that.  And, even if some Giants fan assaults him, you're not going to damage much more of his brain.  It's like slapping Terry Shavio - oddly satisfying, but ultimately ineffective.

Brendan

@roadyhorns Whoever wins this thing becomes "Jets Superfan" and will get shown every game on TV, possibly work his way into radio spots or whatever else. 


People already think we all look and talk like that guy, putting him forward as "Mr. Jet" will only confirm it.
