Season ticket holders to lead J-E-T-S chant

Jets season ticket holders will compete for the chance to lead the J-E-T-S Chant at a home game, and fans will choose the eight winners.

Season ticket holders who wish to enter can submit a 15-second video of themselves leading the chant, along with a few sentences on why they would do a great job. Fans can also nominate another fan, if they so choose. To verify, fans posting submissions and nominations will need to input contact information and their Season Ticket Holder Account Number.

In case video creation isn’t a fan’s strong suit, there will be booths set up to help make submissions at Training Camp practice on August 18 and at Jets Family Night at Hofstra on August 21.

The video submissions will be on NewYorkJets.com/JetsChant from August 26 through August 29 for voting. Winners will be notified by September 2.

is this something like that oath of omertà that mets fans and ex players were mailed out to sign?

I don't see how Rex is taking pressure off his players by his bloviating.  

Bill Walsh didn't do it.

Vince Lombardi didn't do it.

Bill Belichick doesn't do it.

Didn't he learn from predicting a Super Bowl victory which didn't happen?

P.S. I like Rex as a coach, not as a PR man.

HE will be held responsible.

What are you going to do send Rex to bed without dinner?

Please stop these stupid posts

@a57se Good thing you're not his GM, nor will you ever be.

@Lloyd Jay Reife Al Davis did it. 


Joe Namath did it. 


Jerry Jones/Jimmie Johnson did it. 


Seattle Seahawks/Pete Carroll did it. 


Or are we just cherry-picking things that work against Rex?

@UncleJoesJetFarm Rex from just 2 weeks ago: 


Responding to recent headline-making boasts by some of his players, the Jets coach endorsed the outward confidence even though he knows it could make his team a target.


"You get a few bullets shot at you when you take this approach, so maybe that's not recommended, but you know what? It's who we are. It's how we feel," Ryan said Tuesday after practice. "They can laugh, but they have to play us too, so we'll see at the end of the day.

"The beauty of it is we get to find out. We're not running from it. We're running into it."

I'm only aware of Namath "guaranteeing" a victory in the future.  Jerry Jones is a putz.  Jimmy Johnson, I'm not aware threw out a prediction. If Pete Carroll made a prediction, he did it as a twice-fired NFL coach.

Fans are more interested in the product on the field, not in Woody's contests , or Rex's forecasts.  

Yes, I'm pointing out things Rex tried and wasn't successful at that are tangential to his football coaching skills, predicting.

@a57se I'm just presenting a "good thing your not the Jets' GM" scenario!

@a57se @Brendan

While I don't agree with the over the top solution to end Rex's big talking that 57 suggests.

I do agree and wish he would tone it down a little and let us win something first. 

Even just a dvision title would be nice.

@a57se That if he says he will have a top-5 defense he'll be right more often than not?

@Brendan @a57se  Set a goal, attain said goal 


Fine, set the goal in the locker room, not in the biggest media  market in the world.

@a57se Three top-5 defenses in five years. That's "more often than not."

@Lloyd Jay Reife What's the difference? 


Are you of the camp that teams will now try harder to beat the Jets' defense because of these comments? 

Lloyd Jay Reife

@Brendan @Lloyd Jay Reife 


A true professional will put out 100% no matter the opponent.  I'll tell you what, a team scoring on the Jets will have a dash more pleasure because of Rex's mouth.  

Question for you.  If Rex was an opposing coach of a team you root for, how would you as a fan react to his words?

Brendan
Brendan

@UncleJoesJetFarm You agree with PFF's non-updated rankings based on not watching the team play as a full unit yet. Noted.

@a57se @Brendan

Well if the QB's keep giving the ball to the other team at a higher than league average,  it's hard to argue for points.

@a57se When measuring the effectiveness of a defense? Yards. 


Unless you think Poopfart Sanchez's pick-6 parade should count against a defense.

@Lloyd Jay Reife I'd enjoy them as refreshing. I wouldn't take them personally, hate the team he coaches more, etc. 


But I'm also not an old fogey who hates talking and all that.

.  So........your defense of Rex is good ol' bias as a Jets fan.

@UncleJoesJetFarm I'm not worked up at all. I was explaining to Jetlanding what the situation was yesterday. 

Brendan
Brendan

@jetlanding It might've been this morning, but in one of yesterday's threads Joey posted the link of Costello using these rankings without context, but Bent lent context to them to make it a fuller discussion. I'll see if I can find them. 

Brendan
Brendan

@a57se As I said, if he predicts "top 5" for his defense, he's right more often than not. 


You can pretend we didn't just watch the team completely re-work the defense the past two years (the two "down" years where he had the 8th and 11th ranked defenses), but they were a mix of very young and very old and sometimes very injured. 


Let's see how he does now that he's rebuilt his defense. 

Brendan
Brendan

@a57se "I see it as Rex attempting to take the focus off his players and that attempt is now pretty transparent as he has used that tactic extensively since he has been here."


And yet, it continues to work. Right now, we're talking about Rex, not his team. Magic. 


"All it accomplishes these days is to stir up the Circus allusions we all hate as Jets fans."


No, it accomplishes far more than just that. 


"I really don't think the guys who have played for him any amount of time really listen to this crap anymore."


Really? Because they say they do.

Now you lost me.  I think you spend more time having to explain your comments  about your opinion of the New York Jets ,Inc. never being wrong.

Brendan
Brendan

@a57se Oh, please explain this brilliant comment, 57. 

Brendan
Brendan

@a57se That's great, go ask the NFL how they rank defenses (spoiler alert: it's not points). 

Brendan
Brendan

@Lloyd Jay Reife I was pointing out that I've seen you make similar criticisms of Rex before, so it's clearly not something you're on board with (the "talking" comment). 


The Jets are wrong all the time. Can you prove Rex is wrong about this prediction, though? I know I certainly can't. 

Brendan
Brendan

@UncleJoesJetFarm "Isnt Rex saying the defense will top 5 putting very high expectations on the defense?"


Yes. My follow up question: are these expectations any lower than the expectations the defensive players are currently holding for themselves?


"How is that just putting the focus on just him, the D are the ones on the field, no?"


The "putting the focus on him" thing applies to now, in the preparation. Players are different, but this is strictly in terms of fan and media attention. The story will be "come check out this dumb thing Rex said!" if you hate him, so the focus sticks on him while the team can prepare and try to back up what their coach said. 


"Rex said he learned in the past about not putting a target on his teams back"


He did, but he learned it in terms of saying his player, team, unit, whatever is the best


"I never hear the top HCs like BB saying these things, just saying."


And the biggest trash talking team in the NFL won the SB last year. I don't see the point in comparing Rex to other coaches.

@Brendan @Lloyd Jay Reife


Brendan, please cite where I was anti-Rex?  I was rooting for Woody to keep Rex on, when in week 17  Rex was on his last leg as the coach since the general public didn't know Woody  told Rex he is coach for 2014 prior to kickoff vs. Miami

@a57se Um...what. I'm saying old people who talk about things like "the way things used to be" and sht like that. "Fogey" does not indicate gender.

If I'm an "old fogey" thank you.  I'm proud to have remained as a Jet fan and suffered dozens and dozens of losses than having switched to the Giants  and celebrated 4 Super Bowls.

@Lloyd Jay Reife I'd rather be an old fogey than an irrelevant whippersnapper, which is what Hank's called me. 


My dad's been around with this team since its inception, so I have the utmost respect for Jet fan lifers who have been around for decades. I've been rooting for this team for 2 decades, so I know that it takes a special internal strength to deal with this stuff on a regular basis for that long, let alone twice as long (or longer). I hope you don't confuse my disagreeing for disrespect, because it's never intended.
