    I believe and i could be wrong, that the new GM is assesing the roster before taking any action. At his intro new conference he told us that no decisions would be made until he had an opportunity to examine the roster and what was the desires of the coaching staff.

    Thus far, the guy is sticking to his script. Once he has a working knowledge of the Jets, we will begin to reshape this franchise.
    I think you hit the nail on the head. I like what I don't hear.

    It is because he has nothing to run around and brag about. He cant go around saying how smart he is now that the team is in the shape it is in. He has no brash proclamations or predictions, just his record for the past two seasons. Nobody (except for a handful of posters around here) want to hear Rex talk about AFCCG appearances from years ago.

    Nascar I'll give you. Soccer too, although I enjoy the World Cup.
    Back 9 at Augusta on Sunday is some of the most compelling sports on TV.

    Any week without a herp-a-derp Rex Ryan press conference is a good week.

    He is going to be a speaker down here near me for men's church weekenders retreat. Wish I could go so I could tell him to stay and give idzik a chance who said their will be open qb competition.

    Also where is Sanchez? New OC and QB coach and he hasn't commented. Still in hiding licking his wounds. Definitely not a leader. Too soft to be in the NFL!
    It would be a very good thing if John Idzik has managed to fire/gag any of the people constantly leaking information. If these people constantly want to talk about private sh*t to the media, at least be a man and put your name on it.

    I'll just have to take your word for it. I'm not watching that coma-inducing garbage.

    Oh and I should also point out that I don't consider it a sport. There's nothing athletic about it. It is a game, like horseshoes or bocce.

    You have obviously never played golf. I have played many sports in my life. Baseball, football, basketball, tennis, handball, etc. Golf is by far the hardest.

    Golf is easy to play, but VERY difficult to play well. In other sports, every once in a while your opponent will screw up and you will win a point. In tennis they even track unforced errors as a stat. In golf you are playing against yourself in a SPORT that has an unforgiving margin for error.

    The people who bash golf either have not played, or are not ATHLETIC enough or mentally tough enough to play it well.

    I've played golf several times. It can be amusing in spurts, but it is not a sport. 70 year-old men can play it, and compete against younger men. Sports require athletic ability. Golf doesn't. It requires skill, but not athleticism.

    It's no different than bowling or darts. Both of which are not sports, either. They're games.

    However, it requires what all sports require to be successful, consistency. Most can play a few holes well, try 18, week in, week out.

    To be good at anything requires consistency. Doesn't make it a sport.

    Brett Hull, Hall of Fame and two-time Stanley Cup winning former National Hockey League (NHL) player, stated the following in an article by Peter McCleery titled "Are Golfers Really Athletes?," published May 2, 2007 in Golf Digest:
    "Sure it's a sport. People don't understand what it takes to be an elite athlete in any sport. To me the mental preparation and toughness in golf blows away what it takes in any sport. Just because golfers don't wear running shoes and don't run down the fairway doesn't mean they aren't athletes.''

    I guess it's just a matter of perspective...

    True. Golf can be the most frustrating of all sports to play. It is also one of the most addictive. The swing can come and go in a matter of minutes. Just when you think you have it, it disappears.

    Public speaking, and performing surgery both require mental preparation as well. I guess Brett Hull considers them to be sports too.

    I was just trying to balance the discussion with a differing point of view from someone who we all would acknowledge as a great athlete.

    By that definition, you can call anything a sport.

    Great athlete, yes.

    Right in this regard, no.
