  1. Very tough for a coach not to put his immediate job security above all else. Bowles knows he has a better chance of holding onto his job is he goes 8-8 or 7-9 and he is afraid to roll the dice on Petty when he can start the guy who got him to 10-6 last year.
  2. And he can spare Fitzpatrick possible embarrassment/humiliation by pointing to the injury. Lots of reasons to do it now.
  3. You could also make the argument that this would be a lower pressure situation to start him -- much better than starting a season with him. The hardest part of the schedule is behind us and we are essentially out of it. And he isn't a rookie, he's been in the league for a year and a half.
  4. If Petty isn't hurt I'd like to see him start. Hard to imagine he could be much worse.
  5. That would put as at 5-5 and 2-0 in division. Not likely, but maybe not dead.
  6. Forte may not be our future but Powell can't handle the load by himself.
  7. When you can't get a first down your defensive stats will always look terrible because they're always on the field.
  8. Spoken like the owner of the Cleveland Browns. Come in off the ledge and start talking some sense.
  9. Would be a panic move. Let's see what happens the rest of the year. But I do like Coughlin.
  10. Yes. I can blame him. He does not appear to be a good teammate. He does appear to be a prima donna.
  11. I think Bowles will start him next week but if he keeps up this kind of play it can't last for too long. Also, I like Bowles but I'm not sure as a second year coach he will have the guts to go to Petty -- more likely Geno, unfortunately.
  12. 7-9 would be a bad year for this team. Draft pick would not be high enough to get a good QB, unless some good fortune is involved.
  13. And Seattle has the early lead this season in the cheating sweepstakes this year so Belicheat won't let that go unchallenged.
