    I hate to say this because it implies they are deep at the wide receiving position, but where are they going to put him? Does adding a knucklehead possession receiver really give them something they don't have? I don't think the risk is worth the reward for them.

    It's frightening that TO on that team would be the most calming influence

    Pretty soon, the jests are going to need to hire a team warden and an entire crew of psychologists. Anyone know if Klonopin is one of the drugs the NFL has banned?

    The idea came from HBO. Woody Johnson likes it. Jabba Wrecks likes it too. LaClassian, Holmes, Edwards, Cromartie, Jenkins and Mangold are against it.

    I think it would be a great move for them in terms of being in the news always. :)

    since TO proved last year that he can keep his mouth shut and play, I wouldn't be too surprised if he signs up with them.

    Good point. We forget that the Jets aren't trying to build a SB caliber team here. They are trying to build an ensemble cast to rival the likes of Mad Men come Emmy season.

    ...in Buffalo...

    Although they play in Jersey, they are under the city lights of the Big Apple. Big Mouth Rex, Big Mouth Pace, Big mouth everybody. No way Owens works out there....there will be an incident. Please, Mr. Tannenbaum, make this happen!

    Hahahahaha, when I read this. The 2010 Jets will be the best Madden online team, ever. :eek: (Madden 11 next week, boo yeah!)

    However, NFL wise, this team will blow up in flames.

    I don't think TO will be that big a distraction because (a) Jets have other big, if not bigger names on their roster and (b) Rex wouldn't hesitate to cut him to size in the public (wouldn't that be something to watch!!).

    I'm thinking there might be a closet deal between HBO and VH-1 involving Terrell. Owens will sign briefly with the Green Beans which will boost ratings of both "Hard Knocks," and Owens' VH-1 reality show. Then the 'Beans will cut him, giving the reality show several more segments of drama to milk before he eventually signs with Cincinnati. It's all about $$$ and ratings, not football.

    Woody still has a few discounted PSL's left to sell so they don't have to blackout opening day...

    Talk about a team that is trying to "Win now!" Historically, this just hasn't worked in the NFL, or Brett Favre would be looking for his fourth ring. If they start 0--3, which is not out of the question, the whole thing will come apart.

    Yes, I remember that, unstoppable. That was before Online matches/rankings though.

    The Jets might have no starting players in the 70s in the game. I don't know this, since I don't know the starting Jets 11 on both sides.

    In Madden 08, you could even stop the Pats since Jabar Gaffney was mediocre and the Pats have one of the worst runningames (Madden wise).

    Yeah, I sound like a Madden nerd, oh well.

    On the NFL side of things, giving T.O to Mark Sanchez is a horrible idea.

    Ravens, Pats and at Fins. Not just a Patriots' fan's wet dream...0--3 could happen. Put it this way, if they open 3--0, they would shut my mouth for a few weeks. If I'm a Jets fan, I'm thinking a realistic start is 2--1 and I can live with 1--2.

    Last year we were supposed to go 0-4/1-3 to open the season.
