Now all we need is someone who can get deep downfield to open it up.

Pat's better start warming up the clandestine video cameras - they're going to need em


I can NOT believe that after 19 years this is the year we decided not to renew our season tickets.
I'm going to into the garage now to hit myself in the nuts with a hammer

I'll wager Chad ends up in Tampa for a pick

I don't know if it's true or not but I heard that part of the agreement is that the Jets can't trade Chad to an NFC North team.

Bubba and Baker will likely be seeing a lot of bench time
Bubba might not even be on the roster come game time

Jets tight end Keller impressing

Monday, August 04, 2008 BY DAVE HUTCHINSON
Star-Ledger Staff



When the Jets traded up into the first round in last April's NFL Draft to select tight end Dustin Keller with the 30th pick overall -- they picked linebacker Vernon Gholston sixth overall -- the move left many observers scratching their heads. Tight end, it seemed, wasn't a major need with solid veteran Chris Baker on the roster.

Turns out, general manager Mike Tannenbaum knew exactly what he was doing.


Instead of drafting or trading for a big wide receiver to ignite the passing game, the Jets have apparently found that spark plug in Keller, a playmaking tight end in the mold of the Browns' Kellen Winslow and the Colts' Dallas Clark.

It appears the Jets finally have an offensive player who is going to keep opposing defensive coordinators up at night trying to devise a way to stop him.

In training camp, Keller, 6-2, 248 pounds, has been a difficult cover because he presents matchup problems for most linebackers and safeties with his speed and athleticism. He has lined up all over the field.
Keller provided a peek into his potential in Sunday's intra-squad scrimmage when he caught a 55-yard touchdown over safety Abram Elam on a seam route down the middle from quarterback Kellen Clemens. He broke Elam's tackle near the 30-yard line and coasted into the end zone. He finished with four catches for 79 yards and a touchdown.

"Dustin has been everywhere," said wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery. "He's doing a great job. He has everyone excited. You can only go as far as your rookies go during the season because the more they contribute to the team, the better off the team will be."

Coach Eric Mangini said the touchdown catch was an example of the problems Keller will present to defenses.

"I think that play is a really good look on how a tight end can affect the defense," said Mangini. "Deep down the middle of the field, he gets over the top, catches it, you miss one tackle and you go the distance.
"That puts a lot of pressure on defenses because they have to make a decision, how much coverage do you want to push outside the receivers and how wide-open do you want to leave that middle corridor. It's a stretch on opposing defenses."

Keller says he's having a blast. The possibilities seem endless and he's being exposed to a whole new world.

"I thought I was a pretty good receiving tight (end) in college, but coming here and talking to the coaches and (them) coaching me up on a whole bunch of different things has definitely opened my eyes up to a ton of different things."

We gave up our season tickets this May. Nineteen years of futility, of spending thousands of dollars to sit in the freezing cold to watch our team lose has come to an end.
We figured we might as well sit and front of the big screen and be warm while we watch them lose.

It is now preordained - it is absolutely a given - that the AFC Championship game will be at the Meadowlands (I swear I'm friggen cursed !!!!)

I will miss the tailgates. We had that place wired!

Never took us more then 15 minutes to be back on the Turnpike after a game

We even knew where the clean bathrooms are hidden.

Our Jets/Miami tailgates were epic - Thrown out of the parking lot after the game twice epic :7483::7834:
Both my brothers in Law are big fish fans and we'd end up with 20 person tailgates with whole BBQ pigs, Prime porterhouse steaks, lobster, clams ........................ then into one of the new luxury boxes where the press box used to be. The tailgates were filmed by NFL Films twice. I've no idea if we ever made it onto one of those shows or not.

Got to hang out with a lot of players
Back in the late '90s we used to occasionally tailgate with one of the O line players family, and he used to come for the post game tailgate and would usually bring another player or two along.
