The opener is finally here. In 30 minutes, the Jets take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Will Darrelle Revis record a pick in his return to MetLife? How is Geno going to perform in his regular season debut? This, and many other questions are going to be answered starting in 30 minutes time.

With that, we begin our first regular season live game thread. For those of you that have never been through one of these before, it’s very simple. We watch the game, and if you want to make a comment, make one in the comment section below. Jets related, game related as the afternoon roles on, whatever you like.

The comments update in real-time, so we can all hang out and watch the game, virtually. The only rules are to please keep anything you write “G” rated, the discussion needs to remain appropriate for all ages. Anyone who wants to come and join us should feel comfortable.

Other than that, let’s chat, sit back and enjoy week one of Jets football.

    cro looked slow on that play

    • matr dontelli iii

      Bob said same thing on radio, he referenced concrete

  • matr dontelli iii

    Milliner in his first game looks just like Wilson on his fourth year

    • TheJetPress

      I agree with that

  • matr dontelli iii

    No holding?!? Holy crap!

  • TheJetPress

    way to snuff out that screen

  • matr dontelli iii

    It looked like three guys got past their blockers and got pulled backwards

    • TheJetPress

      true

  • matr dontelli iii

    No doubt about that one

    • TheJetPress

      nope

  • TheJetPress

    ugh

  • TheJetPress

    bring back simms! bring back simms!

    • matr dontelli iii

      The dee needs to respond better than that

  • matr dontelli iii

    Looks like sporting news has a good boxscore

    • TheJetPress

      glad you found it

  • ArtichokeMe

    our offense continues to play scared and conservative. they need to run three receivers at revis, two short one long. someone has to be open, if not a rb out of the back field for a screen

    • TheJetPress

      agreed…..don’t like it so far

  • Chip

    I don’t like Jets Wildcat. You got a rookie qb first game in three weeks. Pro set, timing pass plays, run the ball. Spread formations making it easy for bucs to stop run.

    • TheJetPress

      No disagreement. this is a little loose for Geno in his first start

  • matr dontelli iii

    He was getting that yard!

  • matr dontelli iii

    That was a tough first down

  • matr dontelli iii

    Gonna be a long day

    • TheJetPress

      yup

  • matr dontelli iii

    We need to force a turnover

    • TheJetPress

      we just did!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • matr dontelli iii

    Someone was listening

  • ArtichokeMe

    No surprise. Jets offense still playing afraid and conservative

    • TheJetPress

      It’s hard. They have to stay in control, but they have to let him play too

      • ArtichokeMe

        they need to at least pretend to go long to stretch the field to open the middle for enough short pass first downs

  • matr dontelli iii

    Gotta throw that away

    • TheJetPress

      Well he never really got outside the pocket, would have been grounding

  • TheJetPress

    Those are a couple of brutal hits.

  • matr dontelli iii

    Wasn’t the receiver held ?

    • TheJetPress

      didn’t see that

  • matr dontelli iii

    Nice feet by hill

  • TheJetPress

    that a boy

  • ArtichokeMe

    thats another JETS

    • TheJetPress

      FIRST DOWN!

  • matr dontelli iii

    We need seven here

  • ArtichokeMe

    that fucking wildcat killed the offensive momentum we had. lets see if they try to pull that shit out of their ass again

    • TheJetPress

      please no cuss words…keeping this room accessible to all ages

  • ArtichokeMe

    bam thats how it needs to be done

  • TheJetPress

    TD!!

  • matr dontelli iii

    Man, that’s twice I’ve made requests that were instantly granted

    • TheJetPress

      keep going! keep going

  • matr dontelli iii

    And I think I started cumby instead of Winslow on my fantasy team!

    • TheJetPress

      hehe oops

  • matr dontelli iii

    Geno needed that badly. We get the ball in the second half. Maybe wont be such a long day

    • TheJetPress

      That could have been the momentum changer we needed

    • ArtichokeMe

      they need to stop going horizontal and go more vertical

  • matr dontelli iii

    Nice hands by harris

    • TheJetPress

      yup

  • matr dontelli iii

    On radio they pointed out on the hit on kerley, he was going down and they didn’t have much choice on where to hit him

    • TheJetPress

      maybe, was still brutal though

  • Chip

    Stretch the field, use the Wrs. Mix in the run trust the WAC, trust your skill players. Geno, if it’s not there, throw it away. Also, Spadola people will hopefully realize is a smart player who runs great routes.

    • TheJetPress

      I was hoping to see more of Spadola by now myself

      • matr dontelli iii

        You and me both!

  • TheJetPress

    2nd half!

  • matr dontelli iii

    Was that ivory with that block?

    • TheJetPress

      It was….not thrilled with his running yet, though.

      • matr dontelli iii

        Probably partly due to almost no training camp

  • matr dontelli iii

    Damn

  • matr dontelli iii

    I thought that was fourth down

  • TheJetPress

    oh no…nick get up…get up

    • matr dontelli iii

      Hold your breath

  • ArtichokeMe

    TD Buffalo

    • TheJetPress

      sweet!!!!!!!!

  • ArtichokeMe

    nice punts

    • TheJetPress

      Malone is a terrific punter

  • matr dontelli iii

    Nice job by Malone again, good coverage as well

  • matr dontelli iii

    We are tough near the goal line. It’s like they can smell a safety

    • TheJetPress

      I agree…first down though, TB with room to operate now

  • TheJetPress

    did you guys hear according to Erin Andrews “Jeff Mangold” went to the locker room?

    • matr dontelli iii

      That’s part of why I listen to the radio call

      • TheJetPress

        good point

  • matr dontelli iii

    Nice job david

  • TheJetPress

    great hit by harris

  • TheJetPress

    I don’t like Vincent Jackson

  • matr dontelli iii

    This needs to stop

    • TheJetPress

      and stop now

  • matr dontelli iii

    Ok time to hit Jackson on another slant

  • matr dontelli iii

    Actually time to jump a slant for a pick

    • TheJetPress

      that would work

  • TheJetPress

    good def that time

    • matr dontelli iii

      Good cro
