Decorative Concrete Blocks Make Great DIY Shelves

Now the fun begins, adding books to these diy shelves. Painted pink as you can never have enough of this color! Word to the wise, when painting cement blocks best to slap some paint on them. Spray painting cinder blocks just sucks up too much paint. Using a roller paint brush makes the paint go on for a smooth clean look.

How to Beat the Patriots

Game plan for the Jets to beat the Patriots - Bully Brady
After a stunning New York Jets win yesterday against the Indianapolis Colts, Gang Green moves to 3-3 on the season and sets the team up for a huge match-up with the New England Patriots this coming Sunday. The New England Patriots like the Jets are 3-3. For that matter the entire division is tied at 3-3.
To quote the coach, Rex Ryan says after the win, "We're tied for first in our division. "We're also tied for last." Right now every team in AFC East is feisty. The Jets have advantage of being 2-0 in the AFC East division already, makes the upcoming 2 games that much more important.
When the Jets put it all together they look to be pretty dominant sans Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes. Question is, can they do it vs nfl elite? And in week 7 the Jets will travel to Foxboro to meet up with their rival the New England Patriots.
I say the only way to beat the Patriots is to hit Brady and hit him often. Make him eat turf. Disrupt his timing, disrupt his rhythm.
Game plan ---> Bully Brady.
The key to the Jets beating the Patriots is to beat him down and take his game away.

On that oppressively humid afternoon in Miami, we all knew the Jets' season had irrevocably changed. How does a team meet the impossible challenge in replacing a guy with his talent level and freakish athleticism.

2011 NFL Draft |New York Jets

NFL 2011 New York Jets Draft Picks

Coach Rex Ryan came to New York with the reputation of being a defensive wizard and the Jets have improved under him.  However, it was their inability to stop Pittsburgh’s offense last January that led to their ouster in the AFC Championship game.  With key offensive pieces like quarterback Mark Sanchez and running back Shonn Greene in place, Gang Green will want to focus on becoming one of the top three defensive units in the NFL.
The New York Jets have a very good defense, but Stephen Paea will be the future anchor of the Jets defense. Taylor "won" the bench press at the Combine, and he has a lot of skill and speed the jets will be looking to develop in his rookie year.
Here are some strong possibilities for the Jets to take with the 30th pick.
Phil Taylor, DT, Baylor
Phil Taylor - NT - Temple University can plug the middle and attract double teams. His presence would allow Sione Pouha to kick out to defensive end. 

Akeem Ayers-LB-UCLA
Akeem Ayers - LB - UCLA -The 6’3”, 254-pound Ayers was an impact player the past two seasons for the Bruins, combining for 24.5 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, six interceptions and four forced fumbles. Soem consider Ayers to be the fourth-ranked outside linebacker.

"I’d love to play for Rex. They have one of the best defenses in the NFL. That’s something I’d definitely look forward to. I’d be extremely excited if I were to get the opportunity. It’d be an honor to play for the Jets.”

In an Associated Press report by Dennis Waszak Jr., GM Mike Tannenbaum had some interesting things to say in regards to the Jets and their first-pick:
We've run a lot of different scenarios," Tannenbaum said. "Our guess is as good as anybody's. When you're at 30, there's going to be a few trades ahead of us. We try to be as prepared as possible, see if we can move up a few spots or back a few. I think you have to have a pretty good number to start with just because you're sitting at 30.
