What great is that there are only 2 URFA right now.
With the cap space the Jets will have after Sanchez and Holmes are gone (which should be - but not definite), then at OLB I would like to either 1. sign a guy like Orakpo, who would flourish here (if Pace can get 10 sacks with this D-line, Orakpo will explode) or 2. re-sign Pace if it's too expensive. I don't expect Pace to have another 10 sacks, but he's better than the nothing that would be there - unless there's someone else? Spencer?
oh really? so its classless to call someone a dogkiller.
ok got it.
if someone rapes your daughter (god forbid), please remember to be classy and respect that individual and treat them like a human being once they have done their "time"
listen, i'm not trying to spark up another mike vick controversial debate, and i am a huge dog lover and lifetime owner, but lets look at it plain and simple. a dog is property, it's an animal, it's a dog. while i'm not condoning animal cruelty, it's nowhere in the same realm as someone raping a woman. are you clamoring for this guy in NY that kicked the cat to be put on death row?
this is a football site. it's not a PETA site. there's no need to refer to the guy as Mike "dogkiller" Vick. it's completely bush league. did anyone refer to Donte Stallworth as "drunk driving man killer"?
