Patterson issues statement

Dimitri Patterson issued a statement:

“As it relates to my whereabouts and me missing for 48 hours without being seen or heard from me or my representative is completely false. My agent reached out to the Jets organization multiple times several hours prior to Friday night’s game. My commitment to the Jets organization and to my teammates has never been an issue and never will be an issue. As it relates to the rumors about my frustration in regards to the depth chart is totally and completely false. In nine years I have never had control over the depth chart.”

And Woody didn't want to deal with Revis' antics again.

Awww CRAP!

I just checked the programming guide for tonight and I'm getting stuck with the bears v the Browns...

Originally it was supposed to be the Jets-Eagles game.

I am SOOO pissed. Getting this crap because of Manziel.

What I Did On My Summer Vacation, by Dimitri Patterson.

"I took the summer off to relax, getting ready to play the Oakland Raiders -- it's what a veteran does!"

Amigos, enjoy the game! One week from this Sunday, the real bullets fly! It has been a pleasure today, the Farm out!

With all of his statements, Patterson still didn't tell us what he was up to, when he cut out on the team.  Even with his poor performance in the first pre-season game, this guy had an NFL CB position on a team with one of the best front seven in football and he throws it all away.  D-U-M-B.

I want Salas to make the team because he isn't Stephen hill...

I'm down, although I'll have to leave when the game starts. Don't want any spoilers.

Yeah, mine says the same thing. But NFL Network's own site still only has the Jets game listed on their schedule. Same goes for ESPN's schedule. NFL.com actually does list the Bears game as the one being broadcast on NFL Network though.

@a57se I wanted Cooks too. But he is going to succeed way more his rookie year with the Saints than he would with the Jets because of Brees.

@a57se There were a million articles just like this last year about Tavon Austin. How did that work out?

@harvlis 

He is still a Jet from what I understand and will come off suspension just in time to practice for the season opener...

@a57se FWIW, Westhoff thinks the Jets will keep Hill over Gates, who also gets hurt a lot.

I've tried those sites, they suck. you either end up with a virus or you can't watch the picture because of stupid ads being in the way...

Tavon Austin had to deal with Schotty and Bradford/Clemens. 

Brandin Cooks gets Payton and Brees.

@a57se that site is not like that.. its a p2p video feed site. stay away from the flash feeds. use the ones that say "stream torrent" or "sopcast" .. sometimes the preseason ones the video isnt that good because its p2p so the more people connected the better the feed.

The ads are easy to avoid, download adblock plus. 

As for virus stuff, I've never had an issue with that through Wiziwig. The big problem with those streams is they're like watching a movie from 1896. Unless you can get an Acestream. Those are f***ing excellent streams. They're how I watch the big boxing matches. Full HD.

@Bent @joemustgo @a57se 

Keeping Hakim is not like having an extra WR...so we would be basically carrying 5 WR's with Saunders not expected to contribute much at WR either, that would leave us thin...

@Floyd Toucanet @a57se 

Yeah that was Draft 'analysts' confirming what they predicted before Austin ever played a game...

this article is Cooks team mates and Coaches talking about where he is at not where he might be someday...

Yes, but how many would be active on gameday?


Your main three would get the majority of the reps and then Hakim and Saunders could fill in where required.  You get an injury, you just activate the inactive guy the next week.  You get two, you look to bring someone in the next week.

@juunit @Bent @joemustgo @a57se I've been saying since July Hakim's going to be on the team.


McGaughey LOVES him.  If he gets one veto, Hakim would be the guy he'd keep.

@williamg1 @a57se @harvlis 

I think that was just the fuller text of his statement to the same reporter.

So he has only made one statement and despite it not being the smartest thing he could have said, I don't think it is enough for the team to can him.

Bottom line is to win games. If he can help the jets do that, he will stay and the players will be fine with that.

@a57se @williamg1 @harvlis Did we ever receive confirmation that this wasn't just Josina reporting old information in more detail?

the media folks seem to have a pecking order and they don't pay too much attention to those below them on the foodchain...
