If the Cowboys release Orton, do we put Geno on the bench and pick him up?

Who will lead the Jets in INTs this year and how many?  I'll go with Wilson and 5.

On the subject of Walter Football and their hilarious Jets-hating predictions, I stumbled across this yesterday:


http://walterfootball.com/season2006_AFCE.php


Buckle up, because these are some gems:


I think Mangini will be a good coach in the future (haha)


...but he'll be a miracle worker if he gets New York to the postseason this year.  (They went 10-6, the 7th best record in the NFL)


 Justin Miller is turning into a shut-down cornerback (hahahaha)


Inside linebacker Jonathan Vilma, one of the best in the business, plays alongside veteran Eric Barton and the improving Victor Hobson. Outside linebacker Bryan Thomas needs to be replaced, however  (Vilma had a terrible season, Hobson got worse, Thomas had a career year)


...they picked up Kimo von Oelhoffen, a prolific 3-4 defensive end. Von Oelhoffen, along with end Shaun Ellis and nose tackle Dewayne Robertson, will form a decent line that will improve the team's 15th ranking against the run. (KVO was not good and the Jets dropped to 24th against the run)


I believe Mangini will go with either Pennington or Ramsey. If that's his direction, I couldn't disagree more. (Pennington started 16 games and led the Jets to the postseason)


Meanwhile, Clemens is clearly the franchise's quarterback of the future. Mangini should start Bollinger unless Clemens is ready to play.  (Hahahahahaha)


No, we should not take this guy seriously.

@BDarc23  It's a bold strategy Cotton, let's see if it pays off for 'em. 


(I go with ED REED with 6)

Sounds like Interested Jet wrote that!!

@Brendan @BDarc23 Interesting...I wonder if we would have heard some rumors by now if Reed was coming.

@BDarc23 I'm sure we would have, I'm just going to keep holding out hope that he's signed. 


My serious answer is Patterson with 5.

@Dr. Jonathan Reefer Nexium is good, but it's something you have to take daily or at least in the morning before you start your day. If you have a bout with heartburn, it won't counteract it like munching down some Tums would do. 


But if you remember to take it, it's a huge help with this sort of issue (I have had similar experiences with spicy food as you have, which is equally upsetting since I love spicy food).

Nexium and Prilosec (Omeprezole) are made by the same company. Nexium is basically for the esophagus.

I've been taking Omeprezole for years every morning.  It helps prevent heartburn.  A good home remedy for instant relief is take a pinch of raw oatmeal, (no it's not like a steak with all the trimmings), chew it  until it becomes gummy and your heartburn will disappear in moments.

@Lloyd Jay Reife @Brendan @Dr. Jonathan Reefer 

Famotidine is the other, besides Omeprezole. Figure out which one works better for you and just buy the generic at CVS. I supposedly have acid reflux, so I've been taking either/or for a few years. Although secretly I think my throat is just inflamed when I go to the doctor from smoking and I don't actually have any acid reflux.

I never stuck with the probiotics, but I didn't feel like they did much in the short span that I forced myself to eat the stupid yogurt every day.

One of the reasons I didn't like smoking pot was that it was much harsher (to me) than cigarettes which I smoked all the time.

@a57se @juunit 

It definitely is. Coughing from weed is normal. Coughing from cigarette smoke probably means you're going to die soon.

I figured my body was smarter than me and if it didn't want me doing it, then I shouldn't...LOL

@Dr. Jonathan Reefer @juunit @a57se 

I don't even. They don't seem to sell dutches anywhere in LA. Phillies suck and White Owls are for dust. So I pretty much just skip the blunts now.

I tried water pipes...and have had plenty of second hand smoke.

There were other reasons I stopped as well.

I've got a Pax. I hate it. My $15 bowl works better than my $250 + tax vape. 

Brendan

@juunit The Pax wasn't built to last. Nice idea, but just not quite perfected (I have one, too). Get a stationary one and you're set. Also, the vape pen is the tits. Still figuring out the legality of ordering that stuff online, though, since it's not legal here. 

Brendan

@Dr. Jonathan Reefer They're huge in NY. I used to work at a convenience store in my town and we'd clear at least 2 boxes of them on a Friday night. 


Phillies and White Owls are literally cardboard, I never understood people who could use those. 

Brendan
Brendan

@Dr. Jonathan Reefer I used to face blunts all the time. At my worst, I used to roll spliffs with a blunt. Just think about that for a second. I might as well have been sucking on an exhaust pipe.

@Brendan @juunit 

The one I've got has a 10 year warranty. I just don't think it works all that well. My whole reason for buying it was it's supposed to be more efficient, but you've gotta really pack the thing otherwise it doesn't really work at all. Totally defeats the purpose. 

Yeah, I should've got a Laughing Buddha or something. 

Brendan
Brendan

@juunit Yup, this is my experience as well. There was about a 6 month time period where the thing hit like a champ, but then it crapped out and is a mess now. 

Brendan
Brendan

@Dr. Jonathan Reefer HAHA omg I forgot that those existed. I used them for a bit in college because they have a strong taste, but holy crap they would shatter like glass when you tried to roll. 


The best are the blunt raps endorsed by rappers. 


"Sheek Louch has a blunt rap? Well, I have to try this for no other reason than the fact that SHEEK LOUCH HAS A BLUNT RAP." 

juunit

@Brendan @juunit 

I don't think it's ever hit like a champ honestly. And it works best with dry bud, as in, old stale bud. It's just stupid. 

The only real advantage now is lack of smell. But since my building is full of kids my age, mostly who go to the art institute down the street, nobody cares if there's a little weed smell in the hallway. In fact, they probably prefer it.

@Dr. Jonathan Reefer @juunit @Brendan 

Yeah, I'd just refuse. The only thing I was ever willing to live with was when people insisted on a strawberry dutch, or a grape if there was just no other option. Otherwise, I'd buy them the damn vanilla or just put it all in one.
