Great competitor. Really fierce. A really smart player. Tough. Great finisher. Physical. He’s legit. We hated losing Breno. We would’ve liked to (have kept him), but we couldn’t do it. We had no intention of wanting to lose him, but he’s one of the guys we had to transition out of the organization. He’s worth it (for the Jets). He got paid well and he deserves it.”

- Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll, talking to ESPN’s Rich Cimini about new Jets right tackle Breno Giacomini at last week’s owners’ meetings in Orlando (Source: ESPN)

@Brian_Bassett Brian Bassett can we the fans do a vote on Vicks Jersey Number can I start off by recommending #1#8 or #17

The more I look at Geno's last 4 games, the more encouraged I am. We have to remember not only was he a rookie, but he came from a simple college offense and to make matters more difficult, the Jets had a dearth of skill players on offense around him. Geno's last 4 games, he averaged 200yds, just under 60% completion rate, 4 Tds to 1 Int, no fumbles and went 3-1.  If he builds on this and we get him some legit weapons, I think we will have our man!

The Jets are still close to 30m in cap space. I believe 28 and change.

The Eagles released DJax in March taking a 6 mil cap hit. If released the first of June then only a 2 mil cap hit. Something really smells with his release. Buyer beware!

Glad we signed Bellore. Now we can go in a different direction at the draft. (Chuckle)

I guess Leberfeld is taking a shot at Cimini. The press wars are getting fun.

And when they didn't go after MJD a guy who would run through a wall to beat the pats and have been great out of the backfield on 3rd down they told me they're looking to draft a kid

For anyone who doesn't want djax cuz of his attitude and work ethic and does want cj - you're nuts. He's a dog. Plays hard once on awhile when he feels like it and has nowhere near the talent or value djax does

Only Jets fans can argue In favor of Powell over Chris Johnson..


Seriously..



And we all know Idzik won't overpay so if we land him it wont be for big bucks. 

 it is what it is I guess.

@maxjet  They could still have designated him a post-June release if they had chosen to do so. I don't think that's an issue.

@MPTG_Frank  I'm pretty glad we signed him. He is a special teams stud. He's not going to be a superstar, but he's a solid backup.

@williamg1  He takes shots at the beat writers pretty regularly.  Part of that is to differentiate his own product though.


Still, can't disagree with him here.

@jimjets He was really running through walls last season with his breathtaking 3.4 yards per carry.

@jimjets  I think Ivory will run through a wall. I think he'd run through steel. Its only a matter of time before he kills someone (or himself).

@jimjets  It all depends on price.

Maybe Idzik doesn't want to pay up for MeSean.

Maybe the Jets can get Chris Johnson for a very low price.

These are older players and would only be around for a couple of years and maybe Idzik isn't willing to pay for that.

@Hanknaples  

JaWuan James. eh? Why should we draft him before someone in our division does? Is he the next Walter Jones?

Decent back, don't love his vision, very stiff.  But as a 5th - 7th round pick couldn't complain.

Johnson would be replacing Goodson or Ivory and not Powell.

Nobody has a problem with Johnson provided the price is right

If the roster is Goodson, Ivory, and Johnson it would be pretty sweet. However, Powell plays an important role as a 3rd down pass protector for the QB in the backfield and as a receiver. Powell also is tough and can play injured

C Johnson, Goodson, Ivory - none of them are particularly good blockers on 3rd down and Goodson is the only one of them who can play the LT role as a receiver well....Powell is a good receiver out of the backfield

@Marvel  Johnson was unhappy about the Titans bringing in Shonn Greene last year, because he didn't want to lose snaps. 

I can't see CJ chosing a team, where he will have to share snaps with TWO other backs. And I can't see Idzik bringing in CJ after just bringing in Ivory and Goodson last year.

@jake100 @maxjet  Rumors are that it will eventually be a legal matter. In any case DJax has become a hot potato.

@realjetfan @jimjets  Ivory was 4.6 yds per carry. He runs violent!  I really was surprised that he made it to the end, but barely. He does worry me.

@McGeorge @jimjets  


One can make a case for taking a flier on DJax...but why waste time/money on Chris Johnson when you can draft the likes of Sankey, Freeman and Seastrunk, to name just a few, top quality RB's for a 4th round pick?  

Zartan
Zartan

@harold @Zartan  , He reminds me of Ward. He does look a little stiff but i think he will be successful in the NFL. 


Sanky, Seastrunk, Mason are other options, although i would not mind a C2k that much. Johnson would allow us to go in a different direction.

@a57se @Zartan @harold  , I would be more comfortable getting a CB and trading a couple picks to go back up and get Cooks/ODB(etc) or something.
