Excellent. I knew it would be you or TAFKAS who got it.

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

You have to really see jesse in action to understand why there is all that hype around him. I think that he is worth a shot. I can't wait to see him against real competition this weekend. I am most looking forward to looking at him and andre on Sunday. I was really upset to see jesse out yesterday. I didn't hear what the problem with him was, will he be ready on Sunday?

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

What I don't like is having good players getting to play with scrubs in the second or third string. If he's really good, I'd love to see him play with the first string a little bit.

BSB, I heard he has a hip injury, should be back today.

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

I would trade him for a second and a conditional third based on how he preformed. He is great for our team but he can be even better as trade bait.
Imagine the possibilties if they have a horrible season and they end up with the first pick overall, we automaticly get the 1st pick of the second round. Especially if a kid like adrian peterson falls to the second because of injury or something we can get a chance at him. If betts wants the opportunity, I say let him have it.

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

This reminds me a lot of the Ramsey situation last year. One difference is Betts is in the final year of his deal, and likely will not resign. The other difference is that I feel far more comfortable with Rock Cartwright starting at RB for a week than I would have felt if Jason Campbell had to play the must win game vs. the Giants. I guess this could be a good way for Lumsden to become a big part of the team.

With all that said, I would only deal him for a 2nd rounder or better, and only because the Jets 2nd rounder figures to be so high.

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

the only difference in this and the ramsey situation is we aren't looking to trade Betts, so we are in the position of power. while the ramsey trade we were getting shafted

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

I hate to break up this like-fest, but this is from sports illustrated's truth and rumors section:
The Jets continue monitoring running backs around the league. The latest indications out of Denver are that Ron Dayne would be easier to pry from the Broncos than Tatum Bell.

EDIT: the next one, that I hadn't read yet, was the one about Betts

I don't think anyone would give a 2nd for Ladell Betts.

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

they're probably pretty damn desperate, but I have to agree with you. Especially since it looks like someone like Chris Brown (who I swear runs like a ballerina) and/or Thomas Jones might be shopped around soon.
