So what would be the media reaction if the O'line challenged Giants were to bring in Richie Incognito?

You know what I hate? When the Jets have some type of drama going on and then that's all they (the media) talk about dagnabbit! What is going on with the practices as of late?

Someone said yesterday that Babin looks like Dustin Hoffman. After seeing him up close on SNY, the resemblance is uncanny!!!!!

With Kenrick Ellis being a FA after the season,  and TJ Barnes being on the bubble,  I would think Ellis could get us something in the trade market if we wanted to keep TJ Barnes.

I love how Colon goes immediately to the side of his brothers on the oline when a fight breaks out and they do the same for him!

So we get to Saunders Fri night . Good

Colon may not be one of the best guards ever, but he is an amazing Jet. I love the fire he has and his dedication to this team.

Schefty says we tried to trade Hill over the sunmer..


Is that public knowledge.. am I late?

Nice to see Wall's has the support of his teammates... and coach.. when your a CB and your biggest flaw is hands?  not bad..Again we have a decent to good CB situation. Add a vet, get Mill healthy, keep letting AA grow.. watch


Patterson has to go.

So Im reading Patterson is upset about his playing time but that cant be why he missed the game he was supposed to play in. Right? This is just strange.

@Dave Hohf Now if only he could stop with the stupid penalties.

@levi Everything about this is strange, so I've stopped trying to think logically in regards to whatever the hell it is that Patterson did.

@Brendan @bklyndude

Hey,  it's the old we have something other teams need and we need a decent CB.  I mean that's the purpose of having depth.

Brendan
Brendan

@Marvel_ I think so, I don't remember it ever being reported. I know some people suggested the team look into it, with most people responding "who would want to trade for him?" 


The other day I think Bent said 6th round conditional at best, I think I said 7th. It might be one of those "you get nothing for him unless he actually plays for us" deals. But hearing "no takers" isn't surprising.

@Brendan @levi There must be some kind of misunderstanding, there must be some kind of mistake! It happens to me all the time, and I hate when that happens!  http://tinyurl.com/nb8b5ks

@bob For the love of bob, I hope not.

@bklyndude I would rather not lose the depth at the team's best position group, and one of the three most important positions/position groups on the team (probably only behind QB  in terms of how much success hinges on their play).

@Brendan @Marvel_ 

oh, that's what I figured.


The way it was tweeted felt as if it wasppreviously reported.


Would u cut him if there's no takers?  I think I would.

@Marvel_ IMO it depends who they are keeping instead.  If it's an extra RB or TE than no...if it's TJ Barnes or Rontez Miles maybe... one of the other WRs...probably not

Brendan
Brendan

@Marvel_ If he comes out guns blazing in the final game, I might keep him on. But man, he's been uninspiring this preseason. I can live with it if the guy is raw, but he's just not playing hard all the time. I don't think anyone gets a sense of urgency with him. 


Decker/Kerley/Nelson are locks. 


I think Hakim is making the team at WR to play STs/KR and Saunders is the PR. 


So you're looking at 1 spot, most likely. Hill/Gates/Salas/Enunwa. If you can only take one of those, who is it? And if they keep 7, who is the next guy you would keep? 


In this scenario, I'd only keep 6 WR's, hold onto Salas, cut the rest and carry Daryl Richardson or something like that. 

Brendan
Brendan

@BDarc23 At this point, I'd probably keep Daryl Richardson over Hill.

I'd keep Salas. If they take 7, Gates. (ducks)

Seriously tho, I don't love him but Geno and the team seem to, and as a 7th WR that's fine.

@Brendan @Marvel_ 

Terrel Davis (TD) 6th round pick Special teams star.

Saalim Hakim (#15) keeps making big plays on special teams at the very least he's looking like a Brad Smith .. Hes a football player. Myself I keep  Hakim..

@Brendan @Marvel_ 

3rd & 8 in the 4th quarter of a close game...


Who u throwing the rock too?  Hill, Salas or Gates? 


that's the answer to who I'M keeping if just one. If I keep 2....Hill is still odd man out



bob

@Brendan @BDarc23 

Richarson looks good. Nice fined. We maybe the best team in the nfl with these running backs .Now thats something different maybe thats why some call the Jets the back horse to win the superbowl. I hope there right.

@Brendan @BDarc23 Do you think a 4th RB would get any PT though?  I agree Hill is once again a big disappointment.

bob

@DarrolRayFanClub 

I like Salas. Theres another guy . Hes just a good football player. I agree.

@Marvel_ @Brendan I don't trust Gates's hands. Enunwa is a rookie. This comes down to Hill vs Salas for me. It'll be interesting.

I like Salas, but are we overvaluing him? Maybe Salas goes to the practice squad with Quincy.

Theoretically, I think Hill's skill set compliments our other weapons perfectly. I'm also still fantasizing about Hill becoming beastly so my mind isn't entirely clear on this one.

Brendan

@Marvel_ If those are the three options late in a game, I hope Geno tucks it and runs. 

Brendan

@BDarc23 I just think it's great insurance since your RB's could probably use a breather at some point in the season. 

BDarc23

@Brendan @BDarc23 In your scenario above I think it comes down to limited upside with Salas but he seems steady and having a backup running back because CJ is getting older and Ivory will certainly get banged up vs Hill's upside. With the Jets D you might be right that the safe players are the better fit.

@BDarc23 @Brendan Enunwa would be PS eligable which might play in to the thinking of who to keep out of those 4.  Hill certainly seems to be on thin ice.

Good point, We were one summer too late. Probably could have got something back for him last year. Damn no takers though, that hurts.
