  1. Sanchez was finished as a QB when Rex 1) brought in the Yankee guy to teach him how to slide, 2) made him follow that goofball red light green light strategy, and 3) had him keep tossing the ball around in Buffalo, in the rain, with all those INTs, while racking up franchise highs in rushing yardage. Everything that happened afterwards was just the sum of those "thought experiments" dreamed up by Rex. Undermine a naturally confident person's confidence you'll ruin the person. Not saying he would've been exceptional, but had the above not happened we would have wound up with a more than serviceable QB that plays better to your hypothetical scenario. As he ended up, no, we were better off cutting bait.
  2. Left-handed no less. I credit Rex for a lot of the team's success during that run, but I fault him more for the failures, which were more than able to be overcome by a better coach.
  3. Happy birthday, Maxman

    Happy Birthday, Maxman!! Have a terrific day!
  4. Namath used to fly in by helicopter to Quinnipiac from Broadway where he was performing to visit the campers at his and Dockery's football camp. I know, because I was there. Not sure why this is even a story?
  5. Powell Rasmussen Mawae Moore Hill Mangold was brilliant with his ability to almost always be in perfect position while utilizing excellent tactics early in his career, but was ruined when he went the 'bigger is better' route. Mawae was the premier pulling C of his generation, and it's not even close. Along with suspect draft picks, it's the main reason I'm so hard-pressed to name another OG to the list; the Jets didn't need one, their C got to the second level or outside the OT better than any of them. Please stop placing Brick ahead of Powell or Hill. The latter two are dominant HoF players who are guilty of having played for the Jets.
  6. Big Mac is a stand up guy

    Pffft, worse is getting cut whilst on family vacation. And on a log flume to boot!!! Hate the offseason, etc and so forth.
  7. That makes two of you then. Me? It's precisely for that reason that I think he is a greedy fool attempting to return to the well, and I expect it will fail in equally spectacular fashion.
  8. I don't get all the hoopla about including Toradol. It's an NSAID with the biggest advantage being it bypasses first pass since it's an intramuscular injection, thereby making it that much more effective.
  9. Klecko, although he doesn't run away with it. While both he and Revis forced coaches to gameplan around them, I feel Klecko was that much more difficult to account for given his versatility.
  10. As my avatar indicates, I'm a huge Mangold fan (and a fan of Cs in general). That said, Winston Hill and Marvin Powell were ridiculously dominant at a more "prestigious" position. I'd place Nick at 2B with Powell being 2A.
  11. 1. Faulty reasoning is faulty. How you win (or lose), matters. While the desire to compete is not particularly quantifiable (your style over substance), your ability to compete, is. So when a team gets blown out routinely in a loss, it's a telling barometer on their competitiveness. Really not sure how that's even debatable. Again, if you saw some good things on the field, especially at the positions named, you'd have a reason for optimism. But we can agree that wasn't the case. 2. If you go back and read what I wrote, you'll see I mentioned those positions in the framework that this season was a "nuclear disaster." Nowhere did I say they would/could be worse. Now if you want to lend that to the belief they won't be worse, have at it. But I'd aspire to see improvement. With the current roster, that doesn't seem likely. Perhaps you're content with the status quo? Or are you one of those if/then/black/white fellas? Or are you being deliberately obtuse and trolling me? Really don't know all the personalities around here yet.
  12. As with all things, relativity and perspective make for a more accurate assessment. Had the Jets proved to be a competitive team throughout the 5-11 campaign (not the case as 6 of their losses were >20 points), with pieces in place for what are arguably the most important positions on the field (QB, CB, LT, OLB, nowhere to be found), then you MAY have a point. However, since the opposite of all that I pointed out was the case for the 2016 Jets, then it was an unmitigated disaster, or in your words, a "nuclear disaster." Hopefully we are all wrong and they take steps towards being a better team next year. Hopefully.

    You say whiskey sours like it's a bad thing.

    Not since last May by the looks of it. But I'm pretty sure we gained a Roger Vick (or facsimile thereof). So, there's that.
