Jets Tweets

Dolphins finally get a "yes" -- from Dennis Hickey, new GM. I think Mike Hickey was next on their list. Longtime #Jets fans will get it.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) January 26, 2014

If we accept Collision Low Crossers, Rex Ryan gets one late round pick per year and has no more say on the draft than any other coach.

— Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) January 26, 2014

#Broncos haven't checked out #Jets facility yet. Not sure re: practicing indoor vs outdoor. Fox said he heard it was a "phenomenal" facility

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) January 26, 2014

Giants treasurer Jonathan Tisch throws the Jets a bone, calls them "a storied NFL franchise."

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) January 27, 2014

Jets owner Woody Johnson said hosting Broncos at facility is "bittersweet." Then John Mara quipped, "It could've been worse." #NFL

— Jane McManus (@janesports) January 27, 2014

Woody says the Jets will "probably" be back in Cortland for training camp this year. Considering options, though.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) January 27, 2014

Asked if he's relieved Patriots aren't using facility for SB prep, Johnson said you'd "rather not have a team in your division." #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) January 27, 2014

#Jets will get some good publicity this week (for once) - their facility in Florham Park is top notch.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) January 27, 2014

Can't think of a much better leader for the Jets defense than Muhammad Wilkerson. Physical style of play, high level of production. Perfect.

— Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) January 27, 2014

Geno Smith's stats the #Jets final four games: 68/106, 790 yards, 4 TDs, 2 INTs, 188 yards rushing, 3 TDs. 3-1 record

— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) January 27, 2014

Cool visualizations from @Adv_NFL_Stats - the Jets can't seem to get a good offense and good defense at same time

— Chase Stuart (@fbgchase) January 28, 2014

Denver CB Marquice Cole once played for the Jets. Said he texted friend Kyle Wilson a pic of his locker, now occupied by Denver.

— Jane McManus (@janesports) January 28, 2014

Mike Westhoff just told me he will NOT be going back to the Jets as special teams coach. Will only consult in offseason, recommend hires.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) January 28, 2014

Ray Lucas On WFAN: Geno Isn’t The Jets’ Quarterback Of The Future - CBS New York via @instapaper

— Erik from @JetsTwit (@e_man) January 28, 2014

Meanwhile, in pertinent news about grass, the Broncos plan to practice outside on the FieldTurf at the Jets' facility today.

— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) January 29, 2014

Hey people hated on Jesus what makes me better...but you keep doing your #HOF thing tho..P.S. I never wanted to be compared...

— Sheldon Richardson (@Godforshort) January 30, 2014

#Jets fans ecstatic that there is a blemish on the #Giants and their QB this morning…

— Erik from @JetsTwit (@e_man) January 30, 2014

Cromartie says he won't need surgery.

— Matt Ehalt (@MattEhalt) January 30, 2014

I hear various stories everyday from inside stuff about the charity work the guys on the #Jets do, it's awesome. Very little coverage of it.

— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) January 31, 2014

De Smith: "If the NFL wants to make modifications to [add synthetic marijuana on the banned list], the process is collective bargaining."

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) January 31, 2014

Jets 5th youngest team in NFL by this metric. 2013 AV-Adjusted Team Age

— Spider 2 Y Banana (@gambit1154) January 31, 2014

Rex says no other CB -- not even Richard Sherman -- could touch Darrelle Revis' '09 & '10 seasons #jets

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) January 31, 2014

Ryan will watch game from home. He thought about attending, "but I don't know if I could handle it." #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) January 31, 2014

Ryan said he's not ready to name new special-teams coach. He's had conversations w/ Westhoff, but Westhoff just a friend/sounding board.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) January 31, 2014

Ryan hopes Cromartie can regain 2012 form, but won't commit to him on team because of economics -- $15 million cap charge. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) January 31, 2014

If the 2013 NFL Draft was redone, who would go No. 1 overall? I suspect it's Sheldon Richardson.

— Chris Wesseling (@ChrisWesseling) January 31, 2014

Some #Jets fans waiting on line at the ice cream truck booed + shouted "We want Jordan Matthews!" while we were interviewing Rex earlier

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) January 31, 2014

Jets aside: It's quaint how John Idzik still pushes 'competition' after way he redshirted 3 O-linemen in 2013 & only 1 starter lost his job

— J.P. Pelzman (@JPPelzman) February 1, 2014

More Geno: "I'm definitely going to go into this season as I always do: with a chip on my shoulder with that edge." #Jets

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) February 1, 2014

Geno Smith, addressing reporters at "Jets House," refused to answer any direct questions about airport incident. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 1, 2014

While recovering from shoulder surgery, QB Mark Sanchez had arthroscopic knee surgery. Rehab going well on both fronts. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) February 1, 2014

Congrats to my friend @Andre_Reed83 for making the HOF. One of the best WR ever. Let celebrate bro at yours and our event.

Reaction to Sheldon Richardson Winning DROY

Richardson got 23 votes for DROY. Alonso 19, Vaccaro 4, Mathieu 2, Lotulelei 2. Like the pick.

— gregg rosenthal (@greggrosenthal) February 1, 2014

Sheldon Richardson has been named 2013 Defensive Rookie of the Year. Eat your heart out, Buffalo.

— Gang Green Nation (@GangGreenNation) February 1, 2014

Sheldon Richardson has to be one of my favorite NFL players. I could listen to him talk for hours.

— Aaron Nagler (@Aaron_Nagler) February 1, 2014

I've never seen a group of Jets fans as speechless & confused as when the Sheldon draft pick was announced haha - turned out to be AWESOME

— Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) February 1, 2014

Forced into an impossible situation, Idzik traded Revis (not an All-Pro this season at 16M) and landed the DROY and a 3rd rounder this May

— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) February 1, 2014

Give credit it where it's due: Jets GM John Idzik & #NYJ personnel dept. deserve kudos for drafting Sheldon Richardson. #nyj

— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) February 1, 2014

I voted for Manning for MVP and Rivera for coach of the year. Richardson for DROY. Voted for Warford OROY

— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) February 2, 2014

So the Jets turn the first-round pick they got for Darrelle Revis into the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. Not too shabby.

— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) February 2, 2014

Congrats @Godforshort. Like we said at the beginning of rookie mini camp. Just keep proving them wrong. That's all u can do. Congrats.

Tevita Finau (@TFinau97) February 2, 2014

This has got to be the most positively received Cimini tweet ever.

If you’re loving Sheldon, don’t go complaining this May if #Jets go BPA again early & it’s not an offensive skill player :)

— Deb (@LilMissNYJet) February 2, 2014

Sheldon Richardson def rookie of the year!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!

— Ray Lucas (@RayLucas06) February 2, 2014

Such a sweet heartfelt acceptance speech by Sheldon Richardson @Godforshort as DROY! So awesome to have a Jet win award! #Jets

— Connie Carberg (@ConnieScouts) February 2, 2014

Nice to see Sheldon Richardson win DROY. @PFF voted Desmond Trufant, but Richardson certainly deserving:

— Pete Damilatis (@PFF_Pete) February 2, 2014

Congrats to the young homie @Godforshort, you deserve it bro.

Leger Douzable (@LegerDouzable) February 2, 2014

S/O to my young boy @Godforshort for #DROY

— Quinton Coples (@QueCeasar) February 2, 2014
Richardson got some love in his Twitter mentions if any of you are interested in scrolling through them. Warren Sapp got some emotional feedback too last night (viewer discretion is advised).


@EricDecker87 we would love to have you stay in @nyjets as a @nyjets #jetsnation #jetstwitter

— Richard Roberts (@steam638) January 30, 2014

Why #JetsTwitter outrage over what Sapp is saying. We really paying mind to that clown?

— Dave (@Hello_Davey) January 30, 2014

How is a top up and coming linebacker in the #NFL @YouAreFree146 not over 10k followers yet? Go #follow him #Jets #JetsTwitter

Lions have over $51 million in just 3 players; Steelers lead the way with over $67 million in 5 players with Cowboys close behind

There are young personnel scouts in the #NFL that can scout circles around more tenured front office types.

— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) January 26, 2014

Final jobs open were Miami GM and Cleveland head coach. Dolphins and Browns have combined for 1 playoff appearance over last 11 seasons.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 26, 2014

Mixed reactions around the league. The good, from one plugged in source: "Hickey is actually really good."

— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) January 26, 2014

Another take: "Tampa is psyched. They were going to fire him anyway. Now they don't have to pay him."

— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) January 26, 2014

Lake Dawson's statement on turning down MIA"s offer is telling: "The details of the offer didn't align with my vision," Dawson said.

— James Walker (@JamesWalkerNFL) January 26, 2014

I've been told that several Dolphins players have already privately expressed that they want out of this situation. Real consequences coming

— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) January 26, 2014

Bottom line, all along, it screamed out to numerous men as a bad job with limited power and murky terms for team with a poor track record

— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 26, 2014

That #SB48 ticket prices are plunging is big reason why I think cold weather Super Bowls should happen frequently! Real fans can get tickets

— Bob Wischusen (@espnbob) January 26, 2014

Manning: "I certainly want to keep playing." Sounds like only a doctor would shut him down after 2013.

— NFL: AroundTheLeague (@NFL_ATL) January 26, 2014

Tuesday also is the same time as Super Bowl media day. Not many people nationally will be paying attention to the #Dolphins.

— James Walker (@JamesWalkerNFL) January 26, 2014

per sources, the no1 priority for #Broncos this offseason is keeping Eric Decker - arguably best WR in FA 2014 may get Mike Wallace money

— Cecil Lammey (@cecillammey) January 27, 2014

Interesting article from @nyjetscap - - average team spends 47% of cap on dead money + top 5 salary players

— Chase Stuart (@fbgchase) January 28, 2014

Actual question asked to Decker: "Eric, why don't you wear a cup? ...Don't u wanna protect the little Eric Deckers?" #SBMediaDay

— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) January 28, 2014

People wondering why players get fined for skipping media stuff -- The popularity of the game is the reason they're paid so much.

— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 28, 2014

Faulk & Warner had a reasonable discussion about opposite sides of an argument. Proved it is possible to do it on TV w/ insight, w/o yelling

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) January 28, 2014

Super Bowl Media Day is less and less about the media. When league accepts that players can leave early, this idea is over.

— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) January 28, 2014

Per @tomecurran, Patriots were interested in acquiring Larry Fitzgerald last year. Fitzgerald made $5.25M in '13, scheduled for $13M in '14

For argument sake if Lynch had a legitimate phobia or psychological issue would people still be hammering him for not playing ball?

One of the funniest things I've seen is FB Michael Robinson answering questions today for Marshawn Lynch at Seattle hotel.

— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) January 29, 2014

As expected, assistant GM Brian Gaine and the Dolphins have parted ways. Gaine was only finalists not offered GM job. Clear message to him.

5. Should come as no surprise. Hearing #Oregon TE Colt Lyerla is tearing apart his workouts at API in Arizona #NFLDraft

— Mike Loyko (@NEPD_Loyko) January 31, 2014

Basically, NFL gets free money by adding an extra game or 2 (plus jacked up ticket prices) by adding more playoff teams. No cost + more $.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) January 31, 2014

In Wild Card playoff games, every man on the 53-man roster received $24,000. The average NFL salary is about $2M, or $125k per game.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) January 31, 2014

So of course the NFL wants more playoff games. Paying players at a FRACTION of normal games, and get INCREASED revenue. $$$$$

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) January 31, 2014

Increased revenue + less overhead cost = NFL raking in gold from playoff games. Add more games = free money.

— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) January 31, 2014

Crazy stat of the day: 21 of the 53 players on the Seahawks active roster came into the NFL as undrafted free agents.

— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) February 2, 2014

Having Rookie of the Year and then OROY and DROY is a bit confusing. BUT, all three can get incentive bonuses for being ROY now.

— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) February 2, 2014

In 180 starts at tackle, Walter Jones gave up 23 sacks and was called for holding 9 times...Ridiculous!
