New York Jets Tweets of the Week: Volume 31

Jets Tweets

Despite 10 sacks, Pace, 33, is what Bill Parcells used to call a "hold-the-fort guy." Jets need some young blood at OLB. #NYJ
— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 16, 2014

Pro rassler + Jets LB Wahoo McDaniel lost paycheck in poker @ Namath's. Set $100 bill on fire, lit cigar. "No use going home w/ a hundred."

— Chris Wesseling (@ChrisWesseling) March 17, 2014

Obviously, the Jets have a need at cornerback, but since when did Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie become Deion Sanders? #NYJ

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 17, 2014

"We will use free agency, we will be thoughtful, we'll do our research and be judicious in free agency" - John Idzik

— Henry™ (@NYJetsHenry) March 17, 2014

#Jets are still looking to add a WR, and source says they are interested in Sidney Rice. #Saints are too, & #Seahawks would welcome a return

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 17, 2014

Jets leading WR last year, Kerley, was the lowest total of receptions since 1979. Damn

— Sean K. O'Brien (@NYJET_Prime) March 17, 2014

know this about Idzik-1 of main reasons he got GM job was because Jets were convinced media/fan/twitter insanity would have no effect on him

— Bob Wischusen (@espnbob) March 17, 2014

Ravens have interest in Ryan Clark, according to a source. Fluid situation at safety. Redskins, Jets also involved with Clark

— Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) March 17, 2014

FYI on Jets: At this point in '13, they looked like a 2-14 team. Revis still unresolved, huge roster issues. It's a marathon, not a sprint.

— Bob Glauber (@BobGlauber) March 17, 2014

Only gonna say this once, stop it w/ conspiracy to get Rex fired stuff. Why the extension then? Why stunt progress just to fire him later?

— Chris Nimbley (@Cnimbley) March 17, 2014

Raiders sign Packers WR James Jones to a 3-year deal, per @AdamSchefter. Jets made it appear to Jones camp they were interested #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 17, 2014

#Giants were far more aggressive in recruiting DRC, benefitted from him being in their building. #Jets made a last-ditch offer, but too late

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 17, 2014

Friend of Rex Ryan chimes in on news Jets couldn't land Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (or any legit CB in free agency): "Rex is pissed." #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 17, 2014

Seems like some beat guys are trying to be the anti-Manish to get in the good graces of #JetsTwitter haha

— Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) March 17, 2014

Remember the days when the Jets used to make all the free agency headlines + the Giants sat out the first wave? Looks like a role reversal.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 17, 2014

James Jones considered #Steelers, #Browns, #Panthers, #Seahawks. In the end, source said, "He grew up wanting to play for the #Raiders"

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 18, 2014

I just read on that Rex is pissed.

— Dan Leberfeld (@jetswhispers) March 18, 2014

I'm sorry, but there's literally no roster management guide that calls for your placekicker being your 5th highest paid player.

— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 18, 2014

Alright here's my theory #Jets fans: Idzik doesn't want to throw money at FA bcuz of the Tannenbaum mistakes. Wants to build through draft.

— Brian Custer (@BCusterTV) March 18, 2014

Rex Ryan and John Idzik attending Florida State pro day. Lots of talent there, including WR Kelvin Benjamin. #nyj

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 18, 2014

In the 4th quarter vs. Browns, Rich Gannon said no one's been able to cover Gordon, who had 7 catches on 16 targets vs. Milliner at that pt.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) March 18, 2014

One thing on Milliner: really improved his tackling technique and angles in last two games. Always aggressive vs. run, but much more sound.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) March 18, 2014

@TurnOnTheJets But yes, by and large, spent his time on Gordon and Wallace and mostly blanketed them.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) March 18, 2014

Jets were playing "picket fence" in 2ndary w/ all-out rush up front. Any double move would have been a TD. Milliner on the wrong end of it.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) March 18, 2014

DeSean Jackson Career: 357-650 for 54.9%, 6128 yards, 32 TD, 25 INT, 9.4 YPA, 87.5 target rating

— Deep Threat (@DeeepThreat) March 18, 2014

NFL players age 36+ to play in 1+ game: 2013 - 21 2012 - 32 2011 - 30 2010 - 35 2009 - 40 2008 - 40 2007 - 48 2006 - 41

— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) March 19, 2014

Tweeted last night but #nyjets met with Oklahoma center Gabe Ikard @ the East-West Shrine Game, per source. Showing interest. #jetstwitter

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) March 19, 2014

In '12 Decker was targeted 23 times in deep passes: 8 catches, 3 drops, 257 yards and 2 TDs. Major improvement in 2013.

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) March 19, 2014

Believe team was 8-4 with Kerley in the lineup and when Kerley and Nelson were doing bulk of work, he looked like a much better QB #Jets

— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) March 19, 2014

This being at Baylor's Pro Day.

We've had only 2 starting RGs for the last 162 games (incl POs) since 2004: Brandon Moore (146 straight starts) and Colon (16 straight).

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) March 19, 2014


No Jets media had any sources saying Jets were going to resign Willie Colon, then the Jets announce it via team twitter account. #NoLeaks

— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 19, 2014

Colon says May or June for return to the field (biceps surgery). At the least, that should allow him to take part in mini camp. #NYJ

— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) March 19, 2014

No OT in the preseason makes too much sense. I recall more than a few unhappy media members at last year's Jets-Giants game.

— P. Schrager (@PSchrags) March 19, 2014

Jets clear preference is for Geno Smith to be Wk 1 starter. Vick would provide camp competition & insurance if Geno struggles/injured #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 19, 2014

"Jets bringing in Vick is good b/c he's worked with Morningweg & knows the terminology".Did Geno Smith work w/someone else ALL of last year?

— Emory Hunt (@FBallGameplan) March 19, 2014

Sheldon Richardson and T.J. Moe are here supporting the Mizzou NFL hopefuls at the pro day.

— Matthew Fairburn (@MatthewFairburn) March 20, 2014

The Jets have a ton of draft picks and a ton of $$. I'm just guessing, but, I think they figure out this CB issue over next six months.

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) March 20, 2014

Should always remember people like @domcosentino @CLoprestiWFAN @DWAZ73 @Cnimbley @KristianRDyer all do quality, snark-less work on #Jets

— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) March 20, 2014

Told the New York Jets showing heavy interest in Martavis Bryant/WR/Clemson...

— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) March 20, 2014

I've been defending John Idzik. I don't know what he's doing with the CB position.

— Adam Schein (@AdamSchein) March 20, 2014

Not many players in the @nfl classier & professional than @cotcheryfoundat (Jerricho Cotchery) - wish him luck in Carolina.

— Burt Lauten (@SteelersPRBurt) March 20, 2014

So the first clip of Draft Day trailer is Stephen Hill getting drilled...Caught the ball though

— Mike Nolan (@CoachNolan64) March 20, 2014

Antonio Cromartie's deal w Cards: $3.25M + $500k if he plays every game, per @kentsomers. The Jets didn't want to match that? Wow. #nyj

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 21, 2014

Rex Ryan on new Patriots CB Darrelle Revis: "He's the enemy now... He's not with us, so he's just somebody else in another jersey." #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 21, 2014

Greg McElroy retiring. Wasn't he supposed to be on that Brady late round/winner/gumption/it factor spectrum?

— Steve Palazzolo (@StevePalazzolo) March 21, 2014

I'll have some quotes from CLC in a second, but know, first of all, that Terry Bradway pounded the table for McElroy, according to the book.

— Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) March 21, 2014

These are just a few ones I pulled up quick. There's a lot more. McElroy tried to be a professional, Sanchez was a twelve-year old.

— Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) March 21, 2014

Just remembered I made this GIF a while ago: Jeremy Kerley beating Brandon Browner with a spin move #Jets

— Gonzalo Estradé (@PFF_Gonzalo) March 21, 2014

Free agent WRs left: 1. Santonio Holmes 2. Sidney Rice 3. Kenny Britt 4. Miles Austin 5. Damian Williams 6. Jacoby Ford 7. Robert Meachem.

— Evan Silva (@evansilva) March 21, 2014

Jets OLB Calvin Pace will have $1.375M base salary in 2014 and $2.375M base salary in 2015. (Signed 2-year deal this week). #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 21, 2014

Some of you guys crack me up. You want information, but you hate "sources" and don't think the team should provide any info.

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) March 21, 2014

Michael Vick has never started a game against the Patriots. That could well change in 2014 after signing with the Jets.

— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 21, 2014

Jets sign Michael Vick. Vick has played the full 16 games just once in his 11 seasons.

— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) March 21, 2014

The Mark Sanchez era in New York ends with a text message: "The Jets have released Mark Sanchez."

— Bob Glauber (@BobGlauber) March 21, 2014

One thing Geno really needs to work on is learning when to shut down the play and take off. Vick can really help with that. #Jets

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) March 21, 2014

With the release of Sanchez, only 2 of the top 8 picks from the 2009 draft (Matt Stafford, Andre Smith) remain with their original teams.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 21, 2014

One interesting thing about the Sanchez release ... He got the extension, but this is the year his rookie contract would've expired anyway.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 21, 2014

Stats would tell you Jets more likely to flop hard in 2014, but the more big changes they make, the less likely that happens.

— Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) March 21, 2014

Though it was the right move, I'll miss Mark Sanchez on some twisted level. Nice guy and good teammate who put up with a lot of crap. #jets

— Dan Hanzus (@DanHanzus) March 21, 2014

1st-round QBs 2009-11: Stafford (1), Sanchez (5), Freeman (17), Bradford (1), Tebow (25), Newton (1), Locker (8), Gabbert (10), Ponder (12)

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 21, 2014

Vick should wear #2 just to add one more thing to the list of things he's better than Matt Ryan at.

— (@JayErictronica) March 21, 2014

Perfect situation for Vick & #Jets. Marty loves Mike's skill set; can actually ask him to do TOO much from time to time. Need one more WR.

— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) March 21, 2014

The Jets made no attempt to renegotiate Sanchez's contract, per source. They were simply waiting on Vick and then ... goodbye. #nyj

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 21, 2014

Mark Sanchez, you say? He's part of a reason I don't want Manziel. Lacks playing experience in college. Experience is critical.

— Pete Smith (@PeteSmithWTFP) March 21, 2014

Mark Sanchez is 1 of 2 QBs in #NFL history to reach the conference championship in their first 2 seasons

— NFL Stats (@NFL_Stats) March 21, 2014

Vick leaves Philly with a 20-20 record as a starter -- a fairly fitting indicator of an up-and-down tenure on the field

— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) March 22, 2014

MARK MADNESS: QB Mark Sanchez: 68 TD passes, 89 turnovers in 62 reg-season games with #Jets from 2009-12 #NFL

— Russell S. Baxter (@BaxFootballGuru) March 22, 2014

Number one picks to play for the Jets: Namath, Keyshawn, Testaverde, Vick.

— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 22, 2014

Sanchez is 6th all-time in passing yards in #nyj history with 12,092. Namath, Kenny O, Todd, Chad, Vinny in front of him. #ny

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) March 22, 2014

Coming up empty on concerns with Vick signing. Jets saved money, improved at QB, added a good fit for their system at a reasonable price

— Chris Burke (@ChrisBurke_SI) March 22, 2014

#Jets sign Michael Vick. Let me connect some dots. Both Vick & DeSean Jackson are represented by Joel Segal. Could D-Jax be next?

— NFL_DRAFT_Bites (@NFLDraftBites) March 22, 2014

If the #Jets 100% trusted Geno then they wouldn't have learned anything from the Sanchez situation. They added a vet bc of this.

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) March 22, 2014

It should be pointed out with all the complaints about Idzik's inaction that he landed the No. 1 QB and WR available in free agency. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) March 22, 2014

DeSean Jackson is coming off a career-best year & just turned 27. Chip Kelly is a pretty open minded guy. DJax mustve REALLY pissed him off.

— Evan Silva (@evansilva) March 22, 2014

If I were DeSean, would not restructure contract for potential trade. Force Eagles to cut you, negotiate on open market and pick your team.

— Sheil Kapadia (@SheilKapadia) March 22, 2014

Cimini actually just said that Idzik would "morph into Mike Tannenbaum" by trading for DJax. I can't even.

— Spider 2Y OUTRAGEOUS (@gambit1154) March 22, 2014

The Jets just being in a position to absorb Jackson's salary shows Idzik was right with how he approached free agency. See how that works?

— Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) March 22, 2014

Pace and Vick will add $7.5M to the number but the #Jets payroll this year had a good chance to be lowest in the #NFL

— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) March 22, 2014

#Eagles never valued D. Jackson as more than $9 mil a year player; Doubt another team really views him more than that unless for 1 year

— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) March 22, 2014

Following my last Desean Jackson tweet, got this text from a team scout: "I'd rather have Odell Beckham." So, there's that.

— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) March 22, 2014

Don't dismiss Geno Smith. Only Russell Wilson & Peyton Manning had a higher Deep Accuracy % in 2013 (min. 40 deep att). #Jets

— Pete Damilatis (@PFF_Pete) March 22, 2014

Idzik was w the Seahawks when they paid for Flynn & went w Wilson. Vick's salary doesn't mean the Jets have quit on Geno.

— Pete Damilatis (@PFF_Pete) March 22, 2014

... With the increased noise, the horse is out of the barn. And the Eagles have to know that'd make the relationship tough to repair.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 22, 2014

Pretty sure he actually can do all those things to a football if he wanted. @peta

— AdotP. (@ap575) March 22, 2014

Mark Sanchez's ideal landing spot is #Bears. Learn from the QB Whisperer. Sanchez only 27yo. V likely to get another starting opp down road.

— Evan Silva (@evansilva) March 22, 2014

it’s funny how the vick beef pops up when he gets a gig. like ppl are cool that he’s not in jail, so long as he can’t get a job.

— Bomani Jones (@bomani_jones) March 22, 2014

I love the irony of a Miami Dolphin mocking the struggles of a player from another team.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) March 22, 2014

After overpaying Mark Sanchez for 6 years, I can't agree that the Jets somehow "did him wrong" this offseason.

— Pete Damilatis (@PFF_Pete) March 22, 2014

Just FYI, if Sanchez is upset the #NYJ waited until so late to cut him, he shouldn't have agreed to a contract w/ a roster bonus so late.

— Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) March 23, 2014

the #NYJ mistreated Sanchez by using the contract he voluntarily agreed to and got paid handsomely for.

— Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) March 23, 2014
