    I'm going to keep bumping this until ONE person actually reads it. Just one.

    Do people read stuff here anymore? Or just blather on about Mangini becoming GM and would we have beaten the'86 Broncos-because I can see how terribly interesting and pertinent those topics are to this week's Jets mess.....

    It's funny because it's so poorly inaccurate, I struggled reading after..

    Category 4, The Calvin Pace Division: A below average NFL player that shouldn’t be starting for any team,
    No, just no...

    It seems that in addition to the beat journalists, the national and local media, there is an influx of wannabee journalists who fire up blog site after blog site and too often, there is too much credence given to these web sites. For the most part, they are amateurs trying to make it in the journalism industry or do it as a hobby, unfortunately, it isn't unlike any post or thread on this site, everybody has an opinion, and unfortunately along with that, is a ton of misinformation and inaccuracy.

    This made me laugh because it was such a poor attetmpt to categorize a player this blogger obviously knows nothing about

    43. Caleb Schlauderaff, D-. Honestly, I didn’t bother to even make sure that’s how you spell his name...
    And this guy is trying to be intelligent? LOL

    He then goes on to praise Malone for being really good, but gave him a D?

    It's one bloggers or hack's opinion, a credit for all the work, but it's just another misinformed piece IMO. And anybody referencing Bart Hubbach, a jackass NFL beat writer who seems to be a roaming journalist for the post, not assigned to a specific team is a hack, and he's a complete jackass on twitter and in most of this journalistic ventures.

    Saw nothing funny. and if you paste the text in line so people don't have to wait 30 seconds for the page to load more might read it. I'm not inclined to read more of yours after that one though.

    Which century was your computer built? It took 3.5 seconds for the story to load on mine and it's over 2 years old. Really sorry that you and Ray didn't find the humor in any of it. I'm still laughing. The Stephen Hill quote was perfect:

    12. Stephen Hill, B-. Sure, the 2nd round pick canít catch, but he has a ton of potential and any team would take him.

    and on Maybin..

    22. Aaron Maybin, C. I think this is a fine spot for our pass rush specialist with 0 sacks.

    And on and on..

    42. John Conner, D-. I told you I was going to be generous with my grades. Heís useless on offense, but heís still a solid special-teamer! I might as well be picking names out of a hat at this point to fill out the list.

    43. Caleb Schlauderaff, D-. Honestly, I didnít bother to even make sure thatís how you spell his name. Thatís really all you need to know about the guy that Mike Tannenbaum FOR SOME REASON has a hard-on for and calls out by name in every interview for being a great depth player (his ďnext Victor Cruz!Ē


    You see, of course, that he is using irony "Ironic statements (verbal irony)[2] are statements that imply a meaning in opposition to their literal meaning. A situation is often said to be ironic (situational irony) if there is an "incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events and the normal or expected result."

    But then again maybe you don't get irony or the fact that the situation that the Jets are in is really not funny at all. In fact it's pathetic that a major NY Sports franchise can trot out the steaming pile of puke that we saw last Sunday and a thousand other Sundays, that can't get to a Super Bowl for 43 years, that has a coach whose Hubris has completely clouded whatever ability he might have had as a coach, that we are ranked at the bottom of most of the statistical categories so far, that we did nothing in the off-season or pre-season to really improve the team...shall I continue?

    Which part was stupid? The fact that you didn't "get" the writer's humor or...or..shall we get back to the topics you seem more interested in such as Mangni being the GM, could we have beaten the '86 Broncos. Better yet, spend 5 minutes and break down our roster for us so we can have your expert take on the 53 man eval.

    I got what you are generously calling the writer's "humor", and yes, "humor" is in quotations for a purpose.


    Don't know where you are going with the Mangini thing, especially since I can't recall ever saying a word about him here or really anywhere else. Might want to rethink that one.

    As for breaking down the roster, sure, let's go. I'll warn you now that I'm still cloudy as to the defensive side of it as there are so many guys being used in so many different ways/situations that I haven't gotten that side figured out yet. But you want to start on the offensive side ? Let's play.

    You want to start with the guys on the Oline ? The RBs ? The WRs ? The TEs ? QB ?

    It was a reference to a retarded thred that's got legs here..had no idea if you were part of it..was using it to suggest to you-and anyone really-that let's keep talking about the team and their predicament this week, this season.

    I'll save myself a few hours as I might be the slowest typist on the planet and just poach the guy from TOJ's list. I actually thought, while he was being humorous, that he was dead-on. Hill can't catch. maybin can't sack.

    Here's a couple more:

    39. Jason Smith, D. At least heís not Wayne Hunter.

    40. Vlad Ducasse, D. Itís pretty hilarious to think back to Draft Day 2010 when the Jets were rumored to be looking at him in the 1st round. Shouldnít it have raised some flags that he was still around when they picked late in round 2 and several linemen went instead? The reason is because he sucks. He sucked then, and he sucks now.


    anyway, I thought the irony of this article was particularly funny because of how true most of it is.

    Fair enough, your sense of humor is obviously different than mine. If I had paid to listen to this guy's jokes, I'd be pissed and demanding money back. As it is, I'm kind of irked that I spent 5 mins glancing over his musings in the hopes that something might actually be funny. Sadly, it was time wasted

    This guy's stuff was much better:

    With NY Jets struggling to find playing time for Tim Tebow, here are 12 other ways he can help Gang Green

    Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...#ixzz28IVmh4uU


    Tim Tebow has a quarterback rating 34.6 points higher than Mark Sanchez, even though the backup has thrown only one pass. Imagine what he could do if he threw, say, four or five passes.

    For now, the Jets wonít let him. In fact, itís become clear that Tony Sparano has no clue at all what to do with the poor kid. Itís embarrassing for all concerned. About the only place you could find Tebow last week was in a five-letter vertical answer in the New York Times crossword puzzle, where the clue was, ďAmericaís favorite active pro athlete . . .Ē

    Hate to tell Will Shortz, editor of the puzzle, but that word ďactiveĒ has become a real stretch. Tebow has touched the ball about 10 times this season in four games, which is not enough to keep a superstar very popular, on a national level, for very long.

    Tebow, hero-in-waiting, will get his chance to take more snaps as soon as the Jets sink far enough in Week 7. Meanwhile, idle hands are not for idols. Itís probably a good idea for Rex Ryan to find his sideline-pacing superstar something to do.

    Here are a dozen job suggestions for Tebow:

    1. Featured back in Puma package: While the Wildcat hasnít fooled anyone, a little wrinkle should do the trick. In the Puma, Tebow fakes a handoff to himself, then throws a pass to himself coming out of the backfield. Suddenly, Sparano is a genius.

    2. Designated spiker. Nobody throws the football into the ground better than Tebow. With the clock ticking down and no timeouts left, Tebow is your man.

    3. Moving the chains: Since Tebow hasnít been allowed to gain first downs at quarterback, it would be good visualization practice for him to literally move the chains along the sideline, aiding officials. Might require a waiver from the NFL.

    4. Telling Sanchez heís doing great even when he isnít: Actually, Tebow may already be doing this.

    5. Left tackle: Sure, the Jets have auditioned Tebow at every skill position. But that just might be the problem. Tebow may not own any actual skills.

    6. Celebrity usher: Itís a shame to waste such popularity and marketing potential. As a gesture of good will to Personal Seat License holders, Tebow can lead thousands of fans to their seats while the game is going on, between his own plays. Plenty of time for conversation.

    7. Fake punt punter: Instead of taking the short snap on a fake punt, Tebow can take the short snap, fake a fake punt, and punt the ball. Not sure what good this will do, but it is sure to create discussion.

    8. Challenge-flag tosser: Rex shouldnít have to throw his own red flag. Heís got other things to worry about, such as why his defense is even worse than his offense. Despite well-known accuracy problems, Tebow can be expected to throw the flag successfully onto the field at least 60% of the time.

    9. Halftime pep talker: Tebowís enthusiasm is welcome and infectious, taken in short bursts. He can come on as the warmup act for Ryan, telling Jet teammates they are not as far out of the game as the scoreboard clearly indicates.

    10. Physical therapist for Darrelle Revis: Revis needs a cheerleader, same as everybody else.

    11. Gatorade guard: While itís highly unlikely the Jets will ever need to dump Gatorade on Ryan this season, itís possible some opponent ó maybe the Patriots, under the orders of spymaster Bill Belichick ó will steal the Gatorade for their own nefarious purposes.

    12. Model: Never too soon to erect a statue for Tebow outside MetLife Stadium, in shirtless ďTebowingĒ pose. It will come in handy when Tebow leads Jets to a decent finish this season against an easy late schedule.

    By then, heíll be off the unemployment line and back in the crossword puzzles.

    Agreed-we have different senses of humor. There were tidbits there on Tebow. I like the sarcasm/irony thing.

    But, really, there's nothing funny going on in Jetland these days. Tuesday is going to be either:

    A) really shi*ty day and I mean ****&y. If we get blown out, it could be fatal to this team which, while not the end of the world, makes for a very long season and an almost unbearable off-season. I really look forward in a really big, stupid but enthusiastic way to football. I live for Fall. Anticipate it all year long. If the Jets are competitive, then all is well. If not.....whewwwwww bummer.
    B) Not soooo bad if we can actually score some points and stop the heavy bleeding on defense. I never, ever reduce myself to this but a close loss here won't be the worst thing-a ray of hope. Or...
    C) Quite ecstatic if we actually win and show some heart and some capability that all is not as bad as we thought all week-that some of the schemes work and maybe some of the players on the roster can actually play.

    Praying for option C)

    A rubbish article and a lame thread

    Why not just admit you're peddling the site and it's probably your article...?

    Jason found a niche with his cap page, built up his reputation as a writer and THEN jumped the shark... Even then, I only visit his page once or twice a week and I actually enjoy it a lot...

    And you/your friends or whoever is writing this drivel simply lack the substance needed to drive traffic away from what's currently available for Jets related news/discussion/etc...

    I neither wrote nor have anything to do with the site. It was someting I found that I thought was humorous. I also went through some of their other articles and found them to be well-written-insightful, funny, fresh ideas and authored by someone who actually bothered to use spell-check. Read their article on "How NOT to develop your QB"-it's really quite spot-on in citing the litany of ways that the Jets organization has utterly failed to develop Sanchez. Oh, and if you read TOJ's actual game film breakdown you might learn a thing or two. So rather than assuming I'm pushing their site for personal reasons, how about just say: didn't like the article but thanks anyway. Then maybe, just maybe read some of their game breakdown. I read a ton of other Jets sites and can say that these guys do a pretty good job on their game analysis.

    Thanks. Now you can get back to debating whether Mangini should have been made GM, whether or not the '86 Jets would have beaten the Broncos or why a certain poster is going to stop following the Jets if they lose on Monday night-all remarkably interesting, riveting threads.

    This article sucks ... Completely disagree with about 33 percent of the categorizations. No way was Holmes EVER an A player.

    There you go!!! I don't think it sucks..I think our team sucks hence the humor in trying to categorize about 48 players that blow..
