The Jets will have the best defense in the NFL this year......and if they take a CB in round 1 then fine.....if they take a WR even better

Bent, are you a Damon Albarn fan? His album is streaming for free on iTunes.

Who is the guy who gets stuck on the field with the no. 2 offensive line? I feel sorry for that guy.

@jaym  He goes to quite a few games, I love that he's a Rangers fan.

@rkymtnjet  I like/"love" ODB, but he only had 2 ALL-PURPOSE TDs in SEC play...great returner? Yes, Great playmeker in the slot/wherever? YES. But he isn't Brandin Cooks if you ask me

@bradysucks  So the CB would have to be either Gilbert or Dennard....either would be great(ABSOLUTELY)...but let's not act like they are set. They will be abused on Sundays only a bit less than last year

@Brendan  Cool.  Yes, I was a big fan of blur right from the start.  Everything else he's ever done has been hit and miss (to varying degrees) but it's always interesting to check out.


Probably wouldn't buy, but for free?

@Brendan  woo hoo! i'm seeing damon albarn at governor's ball this year!   i don't use itunes, how is the rest of the album?

@a57se  The number 2 QB, like usual.

@a57se  If he's going up against a no. 3 defensive line, then I don't. The guy who's playing behind starters but against starters has it harder, because the competition is equal to the guys he's standing behind.

The 4th preseason game isn't a window into anything meaningful

@Hanknaples  No, the Eagles game is typically where all the starters on both teams are rested.  It's generally week three where you get the last (and most extended) look at the starters.

@jetlife  

I'd say he didn't play in Brandin Cooks offense.

@Hanknaples @bradysucks  I'm going to start ranking football teams in terms of percentages. We all know that the top 5% of the league gets to the divisional round of the playoffs every year.

@cosmicwy I'll be there as well. I really like it, listening for the 2nd time today now that I'm home and not distracted by work.

@Bent @a57se  you think they would throw vick to the wolves?  I imagine a 1a and 1b out there in the beginning of the game, and simms and the #3 6th round compensatory pick QB we draft to be splitting most of the preseason reps.

I am bummed out because I don't get to see any of the preseason games this year.

@a57se That's an argument that goes so many ways. I understand what you're saying, but the fact is ODB Jr. did not perform down the stretch in the SEC. I think his lack of putting points on the board is a bit alarming considering he had Jarvis Landry across from him, who often drew the #1 CB or a double team. I am not diminishing ODB's abilities, I just think Ebron or Cooks is better. I think I am entitled to that opinion based on the evidence I have presented.

@Hanknaples  I rarely respond to your nonsense, but do you believe what you type on your computer? Trolling is one thing, you are out of control beyond saving

@Brendan Don't even waste your time with him. Anyone who watched the Jets last year knows what Sheldon did for this team.

@hanknaples - I wish you would just go away. All you do is criticize, offer ridiculous contrarian views and root for other teams in Florida. But somehow still you claim to be a Jet fan. Your act is so old.

Brendan

@Hanknaples ...who got embarrassed (all caps)? They had an elite run defense (Richardson being a huge part of that) and suffered from inconsistency in the secondary. 

Brendan

@Hanknaples Lol, the DROY is not fabricated. It's voted on by the Associated Press. 


And your Alonzo comment is actually laughable. 

Brendan

@Hanknaples Richardson won DROY and outplayed Harrison. What more do you need to see?

@Hanknaples  It was absolutely a leading question. 


"Rex, will you have a top 5 defense this year?" isn't just a typical question coaches are asked. 

bradysucks

I expect Big Mo, Boss Hogg, Coples, & Big Snacks to be dominant this year!

Brendan
Brendan

@Hanknaples  You're also misrepresenting that conversation a bit. 


He was asked if he would have a top 5 defense (leading question) and Rex basically joked that he would because he has a track record of top 5 defenses and he was "basing it on the facts." 


Before last year he'd never had a defense finish out of the top 6, so it wasn't an outlandish comment in that way.

@Brendan tents are horrible when you wake up...its like waking up in an oven...never been to bonnarroo but i heard they had comedian tent there with big name comedians like louie ck jim norton...the only festivals ive been to was lollapalooza 95 and rock the bells the year rage against the machine was the headliners both on randalls island and both on very hot days

Brendan

@rstysanchz Ha, I went to Bonnaroo from 2009-2012 (four years straight), and had a great time every year. I took last year off from big fests because of other trips and weddings, etc. but this year picked it back up. I did like sleeping in a bed at Coach compared to a hot, muggy tent at Roo.

@rstysanchz Nas brought Jay-Z out and I did nearly died. I was at Pharrell's show during most of Muse, but caught some of it. Those dudes are rock stars, put on a great show from what I did see.

@a57se @__fense 

In the US we actually can get preseason games through the NFL's website. It's like $20 or something.

@a57se @__fense  Get the NFL package, then at least you can watch them on rewind.


Or just read my BGA and it will be so evocative you'll be able to imagine the whole game in your head.

@a57se @__fense  Try firstrowsports. They'll probably have them streaming on their site. The games won't be great quality (and also the feed won't be in high def or anything), but it's better than nothing.

@a57se @__fense  No DVR are anything? I bet they'll be replayed somewhere during the week, as well.

Brendan

@Hanknaples Nah, you got it backwards. Week 3 is when the starters play, which is why they always do it against the Giants, gives them the best shot at selling the most tickets.

@Hanknaples @Bent  It's the 4th so the starters are well rested for week one, like a mini-bye week.
