Peyton and Eli fan

Classy Jets

Recommended Posts

I always find it so interesting how fans throw around the word classy in one of the more violent sports we have in this country. I just find it an odd mix that fans want their players especially the defenders, tough, aggressive, mean, and violent, but then act appalled when things are not "classy."

I can't wait until the Jets lose/don't make the playoffs and people question Rex on his preseason guarantee of "We will win the Super Bowl this year". Not with Mark Sanchez and your slightly above average defense and running game

Jets aren't going to win with Sanchez. That is how the Jets always roll. Sub-par QBs throughout their history. Joe Namath wasn't even a good QB. No HoF QB should have more interceptions than touchdowns.

He only made it because of his guarantee. If you ask me, he is very overrated

I seen a report where he said he didn't guarantee it. He just went along with it. It was a news cast or something, but it was only ran once.

Hah, nice job Giants sticking it to the face of the Jets. Look like the Jets were just as expected, all hype, all bark and no bite.

Ha. Jets actually took the trouble to put a curtain up over the Giants' superbowl logo outside their lockeroom. Tynes and Jacobs took the curtain down and the Jets put it back up with security to protect the curtain from the Giants removing it again.

Anyway, Jets aren't out of it, but need a lot of things to go their way.

While I am very happy that the Giants won, it's not a good move on Jacobs' part to say what he did. You won, let it go, move on

I'm happy. I don't know what he said but the two NY teams fighting is a good thing. And anytime you get in Rex's face.:>

If I were Coughlin, I wouldn't be happy about what Jacobs did/said

lol....big man starting a fight with a 50 year old man. Perhaps he should get tough and jump into the stands and whoop an old lady for heckling him too?

It doesn't matter how much money some of these guys have, the street punk always comes out. You can take a player out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the player.

Maybe classy was the wrong word. Disturbing might be better

Yes it's a violent sport but that kind of crossed the line into blood thirsty don't you think?

True.

How are coaching staffs supposed to teach their players not to lead with the helmet or hit defenseless receivers, while glorifying the drawing of blood? A picture of the Giants slamming Eli is one thing, but the grotesque closeup of a gushing head wound is a bit over the top.

I just watched it. I approve even more. Ryan asks for it with his big mouth. You reap what you sow. Players don't like that kind of talk. And he said it again.."just wait until we win the SB. My gosh..the proverbial kid mouthing off over and over after each failure. If they had won the first time he mouthed off...well I guess you can say they backed it up. But this is what the 3rd year.

I suspect some of his own players might be tired of it.

Thats not motivation by a coach always yapping how we're going to win the SB. I bet some players around the league are quietly glad someone told him off.

Players just don't like that kind of talk and is why the Patriots are told to shut up..like most teams do.

I agree with you. Personally, I am very happy someone told him off. But if I was Coughlin, I wouldn't be happy. As an external fan, I'm fine with it and in fact, I love to see it. If I was someone working internally with the Giants, I wouldn't want to see it happen with my players

Yeah BB would be livid if one of our players did that. Just glad it was someone else:)

Ryan's already succeeded in some way, in that he's made the Jets relevant in NY again. A few years back, the Giants wouldn't have gone out of their way to get involved in a peeing contest like this with the Jets' head coach. But he does need to tone it down when talking about Super Bowls and that kind of thing.

He didn't ask to go to the HOF.....

He just wanted a kiss

    • Burrow was not thought of this highly early(when Ballard was rumored to like Herbert and Love). It was kind of an avalanche that was gaining more and more mass and power the more games got played. I don't think it was until November-December that people started talking about Burrow as a no. 1 pick. He just never had that body of work before this year and a lot of his most impressive games and against best opponents were at the end of the year.        I've heard Brady thrown around, but no idea if there is anything real behind those rumors. The rumors say that they are having hard time attracting any fans to their games and their owners think getting a legend like Brady to play for several years for them might jump start their new fanbase in LA. No idea whether to believe this or not. 
    • To me being a boom or bust is kind of a plus for a QB, because the worst you can be is mediocre once that rookie contract comes to an end. I would prefer for whoever we draft to be either great or horrible and for us to know relatively quickly so we can either invest in him or move on quickly. This is part of the appeal with Love for me. The things he needs to improve are heavily coaching based and I think we will have a good idea of where on the spectrum he will end up pretty quickly. For example - if you draft him and he's not ready to start by year 2, this is a red flag and you might start looking for another one. If 2 off-seasons and 1 in-season period are not enough for your coaching staff to get him ready you either have made a mistake with the draft pick or with your coaching staff and I do have good trust in the coaching staff so... 
    • For me the tiers are more important the the specific ranking... I rank players within a tier very similarly and even though I would have preferences within them, I don't feel strongly enough to argue one over the other.    Tier 1(sell the farm for him - i.e. multiple 1sts, multiple day 2 picks, etc) Burrow   Tier 2 (trade a significant asset for him - i.e. a future 1st round pick) Tua(if I have medical guarantees he'd be alright health-wise)   Tier 3 (trade a medium level asset for him(i.e. a second, a third...) or take him at #13) Love Herbert Tua(if our medical staff cannot give you any guarantees whatsoever either way -for example, there were some reports that it might be too early before the draft to tell whether he will be good or not)   Tier 4 (second round) Eason Fromm     Tier 5 (third-fourth round) Gordon(have to do more work on him, might change his ranking) Hurts   Tier 6 (round 5-7) Tua(if the medicals come bad and there is high risk of reinjury/retirement/not full recovery/etc.) Tyler Huntley Nate Stanley     I'm still watching some QBs so that's not my final ranking. 
    • Hey....    we’ve all had those whoops moments.    Comes with the territory.    I’ve had some whoppers!
