    Same. 10 month old daughter here and you are right. I wouldn't be referencing football players to her. Fair point.

    The thing is that parents don't have to reference people to be role models. If kids have access to TV and the internet, then they can get an eyeful and be influenced, and the parents never know.

    I was disappointed in his play last year. I thought he had better vision. Oh well - bye

    Can't believe this guy set a franchise record for the Jets in his one largely forgettable year in New York.

    He did have an excellent 4.8 yards per carry average behind a bad O-Line.

    Just wasn't an all around back but was a good runner.

    This.

    Honestly, wouldn't have minded keeping him around as a backup.

    Eh, he has a career 4.3 YPC. Plenty of worse RB's out there.

    Totally agree there are worse RB's out there, but for what he was going to make in 2019 (especially the 2m roster bonus set for tomorrow) I understand why Jets cut him.

    Maguire will fill that backup role at a fourth of Crowell's cost.

    You don’t groom a rb for 3-4 years. You get him , run him to the ground and get another .

    Fuck that.

    Shonn Greene napping in the end zone after driving a stake thru the Patriots heart was a great display.

    Crowell wiping his ass was simply crass. It had nothing to do with the Jets as a team and everything to do with his animus toward the team we were playing.

    Oh yeah...lest you forgot... we lost that nation wide prime-time game.

    To a team that hadn't won in nearly two years, and to a quarterback who had never won one.


    Best celebration my ass.:confused:

    Very true but we did have Jordan when we had Martin. That was years ago too. The NFL has changed. I'm not saying it's a must but with the second pick in round three if a guy falls or there is an rb to be had might be worth the pick.

    But look at how mad you are about it? That's half the joy.

    Mad? I ain't mad.

    You should be mad.

    They just cut your favorite player.

    And that makes me glad.
