Does the chubby guy on the front page know manish or cimini?  if so why doesn't he tell them off and tell them to stop making junk up.  rip them a new one ffs i'm getting tired of reading all this tabloid non sense.


The only thing i wanted in FA was a CB so we don't draft one in the 1st round.  what a waste that would be.


Hey Bassett do something, rip them like they're ripping the jets.  they're not reporting they're making stuff up.  enough already.

Draft needs to hurry up and get here already

My mind will be blown if Jets keep Sanchez at the same cost that it would have taken to sign a #1 DB for 2014 season.

Every single player in our locker room would want Vick to be the starter over Eugene smith.

@a57se  That right there might be sabotage or the greatest negotiating ploy ever. "Hey Cam we would love to give you top QB money, but you threw for 603 yards last year"

@Hoz  Um, that's not true. Geno does, but Vick has the same agent as DeSean Jackson (Joel Segal).

@a57se Lmao Hoge is on that meth!! Sam stunk it up in the combine & just like the sub par Collins is going to be forced on to a team. Agenda over football is the new norm, sadly all the young guys who really deserve the attention are not getting it.

@a57se  He is smoking "The whole point of First Take is to say something stupid and controversial so that people will get angry at me and decide to keep watching the show to see other reasons to be mad at me, which I will keep giving them. That means big ratings for the show and a happy boss for me."


Do you guys not remember Tebow?

haha he also said that he wouldn't take Manziel till the 6th. He was right on Tebow. Maybe he just calls it how he sees it.

Great perspective @57se.


Merrill Hoge likes to hear himself talk. I have stopped taking him seriously.

Merril hodge is out of his mind. He's the worst on espn. But on tape alone Sam looks great.

@Johnsbodybyvi Ledo  No one has any real sources, so if they hear even a faint rumor they pounce on it as news, and that leads to things being 'all but confirmed' that were never there in the first place. It's a good sign for the team.

@Johnsbodybyvi Ledo  Vick will be signing today he have no other options, but jackson will be interesting lol

@Bytor @a57se  That guy is filled with some vitriol, nailed it on Tebow and VY tho. He hates Manziel too. Has he been wrong yet? Serious question.

@hansumjay @Bytor @a57se  Big stretch with Timmy. I don't have a log of Hoge'isms but I generally don't find him very insightful.

@Johnsbodybyvi Ledo @hansumjay  More worried about the peepers I don't know than the guy who is making himself known so I can maneuver myself differently if I am otherwise offended. So stop with the name calling.

@a57se @Bytor  I wish we win the SB. I think Geno's improving and will continue to do so.

@a57se @Bytor@bklyndude@harold


You responded "Sanchez was in his third season in 2011.......I am talking about from rookie year to sophmore.."


I said 2010 and 2011.  I think you missed that.

@hansumjay @Bytor @a57se  Geno's last four games times four. We see some variation of that Geno and that team, good things are in store. Not saying this is happening or even reasonable but I can see a mid-pack QB next year.

Bytor
Bytor

@a57se @Bytor  Who's this QB?


272/464 for 3,160 yards 58.6%

16 tds/8 ints

744 rush yds

12 tds


Where would you rank him? Middle of the pack? Elite?

@a57se @Bytor


Also Steve Young had QB rating of 56 and 65 his first two years and at the time he retired was the highest rated passer in NFL history.


The team and players around you matter especially earl in your career.


From my view Geno has improved and what he has improved at can be sustained and built upon to create an excellent career.

harold

@a57se @Bytor


Sanchez went to middle of the pack for a stretch between 2010 and 2011 but his poor accuracy kept his QB rating down.  Geno has more natural accuracy and this should be able to translate into a better QBR (both and new) than Sanchez.


Geno extreme rating was driven in part by a terrible 4 game stretch that all can admit was driven in large part by an ultra conservative game plan that hurt him and a paucity of options at the WR positions.

@a57se @Bytor

I do hope he improves because I don't want us to have wasted a 2nd round pick on a bust.

Prove it.......and don't say anything negative about Geno for one year and actually root for him !!!

Bytor

@a57se @Bytor  You said more of the same. I think he'll still make similar mistakes but fewer of them.

@a57se  Dude, if Geno is competent this year, say middle of the pack you'll have some serious back tracking to do.........:)

You assume in almost all your scenarios he will fail, with only a tacit admission he may succeed
