    He's had nice stats his whole career. Why would Tennessee let him go when they have nobody to replace him? Draft pick I guess? Moreno not signing with Denver made sense because they have Ball and Hillman.

    This is a good signing? I really think he's the most overrated running back in the game.

    When he was released nobody cared because his career was over now panic time because the Jets signed him. Only on Finheaven.

    I hope his trends from the past vs. the Fins do not continue.

    He has 3 games (once every 2 years, most recent 2012). He is 2-1 in the games and yet to be held under 100 yards. :(

    2012 @ MIA: 23 carries for 126 yards and 1 TD (TEN 37 - MIA 3).

    Probably a good pickup for them and seems a safe one if it's just two years.

    Not the back he used to be but can still hurt you with speed when your defense doesn't play its gaps or somebody makes a mistake.

    If they paid stupid money then they are more stupid than originally thought (not possible). Jests were the only ones interested. Apparently no other teams even contacted his agent.

    I love how most of you guys think he is done This is horrible news. Vick, decker, Cj2k just made our division that much tougher. I hate the Jets more than anything in life and Im scared they are going to be pretty damn good this coming season. FML

    When was the last time you won a SB? Grant it 74 was pretty long ago too, but not as long as your ****ty team.

    Overall W/L/T record
    Dolphins 415-317-4
    Jets 373-439-8

    And thats with 6 more years for the jests....not even a .500 team and we're such a bad franchise....lol. Go home kid your drunk

    Nobody cares about playoff games except for angry nerds trying to prove a point about their horrible football teams. I want a SB win. Anything else means nothing.

    Ultimately ...yes, a SB is the only thing that matters. Not every team makes the playoffs, and wins a game. Just try that though.

    Fantastic. But let's be real. The Jets are a better team. Especially now.

    Sorry about that last game btw.

    It could be worse. We could be Bills fans.

    Explain how they are a better team right now. The Jets were an 8-8 team last year too. We split the series with the Pats and the Jets. The only division rival that can give us **** is the Bils.

    Signing over the hill players in free agency makes you the better team.

    I must say I am looking forward to somebody breaking Vick in half this year though. Not that I'd wish injury on a player but I hardly consider Vick a human being let alone a football player.

    Jets fans coming out of the cracks. Hilarious. Cute that they think there team is some sort of powerhouse right now. Michael Vick and Chris Johnson? Great signings if this was 2010. Today they are OK signings, CJ is the better of the two. Better hope your season doesn't come down to Vick being the starting quarterback, he won't last more than a few games before getting hurt.

    Really Jets fans all you got was a pretty good running, you still really don't have a QB and besides Decker(who really is a #2), you have no wide receivers. Holmes is gone, Cromartie is gone. Not sure they are all that much better than last year.

    If Mike Goodson could stay out of trouble they wouldn't need him, he's declining and even with the fixes Tennessee made on the OL last year he still faltered.

    Well, I'll say this.

    I desperately did not want Miami to sign this bum, because he has just been flat out bad.

    But if he's hungry and actually playing for another contract again? Might be different. We'll see.

    A better team than what? Last year? That is up for debate. Than the Dolphins? Please explain why. The Jets were 6-10 and 8-8 the last 2 seasons. The Jets beat us in week 17 when our O was dreadful. We got shut out by the Bills the week before. The Jets still have a losing record against the Dolphins under Rex. The Jets have just as many (if not more) questions as the Dolphins do.

    He's talking about that Rodger Podactor guy. I am sure the level headed Jets fans, such as yourself, have a more realistic opinion of the team.

    RB wasn't the Jets issue, but hey....it looks good and keeps masses happy...I wonder is Rex got a peek at the feet before he signed?

    some of these comments are comical, you do realize we got great value and he will be a part time player, right? No one expects 2,000 yds but he gives us an explosive playmaker who will be a great check down option for a young QB. we haven't had any real weapons on O the last 2-3 years. The talent has been greatly increased w/o sacrificing tons of cap room. a duo w/ the battering ram Ivory and the explosiveness of Johnson can be dynamic. Ivory pounding away wearing down Ds then the speed of Johnson coming in or vice versa.

    another excellent move by Idzik, we have had an outstanding offseason so far and w/ 12 picks in a deep draft it should only get better.

    Idzik likes lower cost moves and using the draft, year 1 produced a what looks like a very good draft. if that happens again we can be set up for years to come IF Geno keeps improving. till a ton of work to be done but I love what we have done, I was very critical of Idzik early on and obviously I preferred to keep Mark but he's done a good job at getting value guys in FA and stockpiling picks- now he has to hit on those picks.

    I love folks that run to Gangreen and complain about how badly Finheaven treated you like you're entitled to some sort of special treatment. Got news for you buddy, you're just another poster and subject to the same rules everyone else is.

    I didn't run anywhere, a follower of mine on here ran over there. He asked me about it.

    I never asked to be treated better than anyone but I didn't deserve to be suspended especially the 2nd time which was a complete joke.

    I know we suck, Miami is #1! it's amazing how we always suck and make bad moves and you guys always make great moves yet we always seem to finish ahead of you.

    I think signing Johnson was a nice move. I wouldn't call it great value though. I guess it depends on which CJ the Jets are getting. We will see how he feels about being a part time player.

    You really think the talent has been greatly increased as of right now? Is Giacomini better than Howard? I don't think so. I know Vick is a better backup than anything the Jets had last year, but you better hope he doesn't win the starting job. I'd probably give Decker an edge over Holmes since Holmes has always been injured the past couple years. But I think a healthy Holmes is more explosive than Decker. CJ over Goodson is an upgrade since Goodson had injury and off the field problems. Who else have they signed that I don't know about? I know they lost Cromartie, and haven't signed a TE to replace Winslow. I know they have a lot of draft picks that they can use to fill a lot of holes, but as of right now, I don't think the talent has been greatly increased.

    yes I think the talent is significantly better for the QBs.

    Decker is better than any WR we have had since 2010/11.
    Giacomini-Howard is probably a wash
    Johnson gives us a really nice duo and let's not forget Powell


    holmes hasn't been healthy since 2011 and even at his healthiest w/ Ben he never put up #s like Decker but he did make a million big plays which decker has not. I'd love 2010 Holmes back, unfortunately that guy hasn't been around for years. I am comparing the talent to what we have had the last 2-3 years.

    this team still has holes, most notably at corner. I expect a TE, WR, CB and S in the draft or at least 3 of those 4 positions. if we draft well the talent upgrade will be huge, right now it's better.

    and don't forget we still have the 2nd most cap room, cap flexibility w/ tons of picks. that's a good way to build a team but still a ton of work to be done.

    So basically it is the 2 guys (Decker and CJ) that you think has greatly improved the talent of the team? They could be great for the Jets, but I am not sold on either of them.

    Holmes never played with Peyton Manning either. I could be wrong, but I don't think Decker will be putting up nearly the same numbers as he did with Denver.

    Having a lot of cap space doesn't mean much when you don't use it. :lol: The jets had a lot of opportunities to significantly improve the team, and either chose not to, or really misread the market on several players.

    There is still the draft which can fill a lot of holes, but as of right now, I don't think the Jets have significantly improved.
