Jets Tweets

"They need to find WR's, they need to find TE's. I think you give Geno a chance. You gotta give it some time to breathe." #Jets

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 7, 2014

ESPN just named @BigDame900 one of the top 5 players on the #Jets. Undrafted free agent out of a NAIA school. #AnythingisPossible

— Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) February 9, 2014

By dropping Sanchez, Cromartie and Holmes, the #Jets would clear a total of $26 million, putting them more than $40 million under the cap.

— Erik from @JetsTwit (@e_man) February 9, 2014

With John Idzik running the show, I don't expect there to be any leaks for the #Jets free agency plans. Not buying that NYDN report on WR's.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 10, 2014

As undersized DLM, Michael Sam would project as OLB in Jets' 34 front. Could use another edge player, but it's not one of their top needs.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 10, 2014

Bruh. I don't have NYJ. UVA. Not even Ferguson in my bio. Just D'Brickashaw. And these folks think Im D'Brickashaw Ferguson. Really?

— D'Brickashaw (@DragonflyJonez) February 10, 2014

Rex will bring back Bryan Thomas before he drafts an OLB here.. it's baffling, but true

— Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) February 10, 2014

That 2008 Cardinals/Jets game was crazy lol. Cards had 3 WR's go over 100 yds. Favre had 6 TD's. Coles had 100+ yds and 3 td's

— Manny (@MannyFresco16) February 10, 2014

#Jets announce '14 ticket-price adjustments: Lower level will go up by avg of 3%, mezz remains unchanged, upper decreases by avg of 10%.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 10, 2014

Extremely bad job by the #Jets hitting up the diehards for additional coin. Demand really justify it? Because performance doesn't. #NFL

— Jeff Capellini (@GreenLanternJet) February 10, 2014

Jets president Neil Glat says team lowered upper-deck season ticket prices to help keep opposing fans away.

— Russell S. Baxter (@BaxFootballGuru) February 10, 2014

Jets spent a whole season getting rid of bad contracts to get (after cuts) about $45 mil, Phins have $30 year removed from spending spree

— Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) February 11, 2014

guys….the Jets retired 12. Some old QB was apparently pretty decent

— Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) February 11, 2014

Sheldon Richardson said he's proud & happy 4 former teammate Michael Sam He lived w/ Sam-didn't care he was gay Said he was a great teammate

— Jeane Coakley (@JeaneCoakley) February 11, 2014

With all the Vick/#Jets chatter...surprised how many people are ignoring relationship issues he had with Mornhinweg

— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) February 11, 2014

I dream of the day when the #NYJ won't enter an offseason saying, "We need an outside linebacker."

— Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) February 11, 2014

Most turnovers #NFL since ‘09: ’13 #Giants (44), ’12 #Chiefs #Jets #Eagles (37), ’11 Buccaneers (40), ’10 #Giants (42), ’09 #Lions (41)

— Russell S. Baxter (@BaxFootballGuru) February 12, 2014

I want the Pats to draft a DT with the same type of edge. Bring some attitude to the defense.

— Rich Hill (@PP_Rich_Hill) February 12, 2014

If Michael Sam went to school at Umass Tanny would have drafted him in the 2nd round. #Jets

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) February 12, 2014

Making a list of prospects for every position I hope the #Jets draft. There will be three columns for each. Favorite. Acceptable. Ducasse

— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) February 12, 2014

Came across a 3-Round Mock draft with #Jets taking: Amaro (yay), Robinson (nice)……. and Mettenberger (didn't see this one coming).

— Deb (@LilMissNYJet) February 12, 2014

Another player the Jets met with at the Shrine Game, per source, is Notre Dame OLBer Prince Shembo. Likely mid-round selection. #nyjets

— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) February 12, 2014

Good year to have two 3rd round picks - there will be starting caliber talent left all over the board. #Jets

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 12, 2014

On Royce Adams: Played WR in college, was moved to CB by the Jets. Adams was listed as a WR on NFL's personnel notice.

— Brian McIntyre (@brian_mcintyre) February 12, 2014

The Saints have cut 4 players including Jon Vilma. Which of Rob's former players should Rex take?

— Gang Green Nation (@GangGreenNation) February 12, 2014

Jets will not have a comment regarding Ed Reed incident in which he had $50K in cash in a bag stolen from his car, per #NYJ spokesman.

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 13, 2014

Who in the (expletive deleted) keeps 50 grand in their car?

— mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) February 13, 2014

People complaining about the #Jets bringing back Austin Howard, I'm assuming this is your 1st year as a fan and missed the Wayne Hunter era.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) February 13, 2014

Idzik is unknown, but safe to say Rex is higher on Evans/Benjamin than JetsTwitter. Famously infatuated w Plax back in the day.

— Spider 2 Y Banana (@gambit1154) February 13, 2014

Oh wow. Per @corryjoel, the Bucs have the option to convert a lot of Darrelle Revis' $16M salary into a roster bonus. Interesting dynamic.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 13, 2014

3yrs: Ivory has played 24 games with 10 starts, carrying the ball 256 times for 1,307 yards (5.1 yards per carry) and 8 TDs. #Jets

Huge Shoutout to the guys at @starter for hooking me up with this sweet Jets throwback Jacket.…

David Nelson (@DavidNelson86) February 14, 2014

Heading to Indy tomorrow night..going to #TAB..since @treyanastasio is such a big Jets fan I assume my backstage pass will be at will call!

I was just going through the pictures on my computer and completely forgot why I have like thirty pictures of Geno Smith as a child.

— Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) February 16, 2014

Scouting report on LSU safety Craig Loston. Rams, Ravens, Vikings, Bears, Packers, Eagles, 49ers, Cardinals & Jets.

— Charlie Campbell (@DraftCampbell) February 15, 2014


So I guess I should just accept that every WR released by another team the next few weeks will immediately rile up #JetsTwitter huh? Haha

— Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) February 13, 2014

The Icognito/Martin voice mail/text messages are basic everyday conversations on #JetsTwitter

Random Tweets

A line about kings from Game of Thrones reminds me of NFL coaches: "Their days are too long and their lives are too short."

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 9, 2014

If you disagree with a pick, mocked or real, it should be because you don't believe in the player, not because of the position he plays

— Steve Palazzolo (@StevePalazzolo) February 9, 2014

Every player I spoke to was supportive of a gay teammate. Said one, "I got his back." Players are ready for this. We'll see if teams are.

— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) February 10, 2014

A team’s top executive on Sam: "The league is in a better place to handle this now than a few years ago given the influx of younger GMs."

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 10, 2014

Even the claim that Kerry Rhodes is gay made him completely toxic in the NFL. Could only get one TRYOUT in 2013 after a Pro Bowl-level 2012.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) February 10, 2014

Regarding the use of anonymous quotes/sources, it's something I try to avoid. Neither way is right or wrong. Just how I was taught.

— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) February 10, 2014

From a pure football perspective, Sam was rated by most as a second- or third-round pick before tonight's announcement.

— Christopher Price (@cpriceNFL) February 10, 2014

In his first hour on Twitter, @MikeSamFootball has gained 18,165 followers.

NFL workplace anti-discriminstion policy regarding sexual orientation here. @NFL345: NFL Statement on Michael Sam

— Greg Aiello (@gregaiello) February 10, 2014

Already rolling my eyes at people comparing Sam to Te'o.

— Rich Hill (@PP_Rich_Hill) February 10, 2014

Re: Michael Sam. The last 7 SEC Defensive Players of the Year have all gone on to become 1st RD picks. DeMeco Ryans was #2 in 2006.

— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) February 10, 2014

Robert Kraft told @BuckinBoston he’s spoken to Belichick in the past about having an openly gay player: "Anyone who can help us win."

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 10, 2014

More Bill Belichick on Sam: "Our scouting staff has performed extensive work on Michael, both this season &going back throughout his career"

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 10, 2014

It's easy to say "player x is a 2nd rounder" until you put pen to paper and start ranking players. Better idea to say he's a 1st yr starter

— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) February 11, 2014

I sure hope Mike Pettine knew this was coming. Might explain why so many potential coaches turned down the position.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 11, 2014

Firing Mike Lombardi is not a new thought. If they hired Adam Gase, #Browns wanted to pair him w #Seahawks exec Scot McCloughan, per source

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 11, 2014

The last few days once again drive home this very significant point: There is NO off season in the NFL.

— trey wingo (@wingoz) February 11, 2014

Kokinis was 2009. So in the last 5 years ... Holmgren, Banner, Kokinis, Heckert, Lombardi, Farmer, Mangini, Shurmur, Chudzinski and Pettine.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) February 11, 2014

Interesting project would be dissecting how teams (13 TB, 12 NYG/CHI, 11 SEA, 10 TB) that excelled in turnover margin still missed playoffs

— Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom) February 11, 2014

Evaluating QBs & determining QB draft position is a completely different animal from any other position. Nature & value of QBs dictate that.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 11, 2014

Asked a personnel exec for some over/unders on Clowney at the combine-- size-6'6, weight-270, 40 time- 4.50, VJ-37. Freaky stuff!

— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) February 12, 2014

I have a great deal of respect for Derek Jeter, who always treated me well. Class act. He even offered me a bowl of cereal once in Minnesota

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 12, 2014

Always remember this from Parcells: When you start talking about retirement, you've already retired. #Jeter

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 12, 2014

Here's an incredible stat: The 4 players the Saints let go today -- Smith, Vilma, Greer, Harper -- started a total of 352 games for the team

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) February 12, 2014

Mediocrity is a curse in pro sports. Better to be bad. Really bad.

— Vic Lombardi (@VicLombardi) February 13, 2014

There isn't that much $ in jersey royalties. If A&M split with Manziel he probably would have made $10K-$15K

76 undrafted players from the 2013 #NFL Draft made it on an active roster #Crazy

— NFL Stats (@NFL_Stats) February 13, 2014

I believe that it was @JoshNorris who said that at this point, tight ends just need to be adequate and willing in blocking. I wholly agree.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) February 13, 2014

Liked how Mike Pettine told reporters today that he moved within 'walking distance' of the Browns facility. Think he's a keeper.

I think we now have the first item on the NFL Spring Meetings agenda: Workplace Standards, Respect and Anti-Harassment.

Lawyer for @68INCOGNITO disputes facts of Wells Report. Didn't think he would come out and say "Yup, that sounds about right!"..

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) February 14, 2014

Not surprised by Goodell compensation. Revenues approaching $10B, ten-year favorable CBA, record TV deals, paid by billionaires...

— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) February 14, 2014

According to the report, the Dolphins fined Incognito $50,000 for his behavior toward a female volunteer at the team's golf outing in 2012.

— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) February 14, 2014 past couple of days in the NFL Jimmy Haslam has preached patience and Richie Incognito has preached love. Got it.

Nike CEO Mark Parker, whose company brings in $15 billion more than the NFL annually, earned $9M less than Roger Goodell did in 2012
