  1. Your post contains a lot of assumptions Scott. You are quoting "sound bites" and quotes from throughout the year and interpreting them in your own perception of the events - that doesn't make your conclusions fact. Benching Fitzpatrick for one game was a half-hearted attempt at trying to motivate Fitzpatrick which didn't get the job done - he should have stayed benched and when Geno went down, the ball should have been handed to Petty, period. If Petty wasn't ready then you let Hack get some regular season snaps; running right back to Fitzpatrick was a step backward. Petty showed enough in the pre-season to justify a closer look & I would rather let Petty play in a regular season environment with our starters and see for myself what he is - or what he is not. At least going forward, we would have all of the QB questions answered and know for certain what needs to be done going into the off-season. Keeping Fitzpatrick under center is accomplishing nothing and it certainly isn't winning us games. You don't know for certain what a QB is - or is not, until he has some pro-longed exposure to a regular season environment as a starter, playing with the starters. The Jets have the opportunity to do that with Petty and to give Hackenburg some experience preparing weekly as a back-up. This is the perfect scenario to try and develop our young QB's and give them some invaluable regular season experience; to piss that opportunity away for any reason or assumption is inexcusable and not in the team's best interest.
  2. Not arguing with your point about the defense needing to step up Scott, because you are correct. However, we don't have younger players sitting on the sideline that have shown the potential to be better then the starters that are already out there. My point is that Bowles undying loyalty to Fitzpatrick is hurting the team and hindering the development of Petty and Hackenburg. But again, your points about the defense are completely valid.
  3. I think this is what is aggravating most fans - including myself. Coaches aren't going to make great decisions all the time but you HAVE to be able to recognize when & why changes need to be made. Bowles is clearly not seeing that. It's good to stick by your players - but not when it gets to the point where it's detrimental to the team and that's where he's at with his undying support of Fitzpatrick. What makes it worse is it's ruining the perfect opportunity to get Petty some valuable regular season reps and experience with the first team offense against other teams 1st team defenses. The season is already a wash - Bowles has an opportunity to still do something positive with it - and he is pissing that opportunity away and doesn't seem to have the insight to realize it.
  4. Every week that Bowles starts Fitzpatrick from this point forward is another nail in his coffin. There is absolutely no reason we should be putting Fitzpatrick on the field now. The season is already a wash - let Petty get some regular season reps with the first team offense and lets find out what we really have in him. This should be Petty's season from here on out and if he gets hurt then you let Hack play but sticking with Fitzpatrick is utter stupidity. There is no intelligent defense for Bowles's decision to keep Fitzpatrick on the field. I have seen some ignorant, bone-headed coaching decisions in my day - this one has got to rank near the top of the list.

  7. The Jets finally have a little momentum this season, posting back to back wins for the first time. Lets see if they can carry it into next week vs. Miami.
  8. Yep, Petty is not on the injury report at all this week.
  9. Jets Activate Giacomini to Active Roster Posted 25 minutes ago Eric Allen Sr. Reporter/Director, Internet Programming Email @eallenjets On the Inside Club Reaches 53-Player Limit by Waiving WR Jeremy Butler The Jets announced Saturday that RT Breno Giacomini has been activated off the Physically Unable to Perform List. In order to make room for Giacomini, the club waived WR Jeremy Butler. Giacomini, the Jets' starting right tackle for all 32 games the previous two seasons, was on the Reserve/PUP list for the first seven games of regular season with a back injury. The 6'7", 318-pound Giacomini, a Louisville product who has made 65 career starts and appeared in 73 contests, has practiced the last two weeks with the Green & White. Acquired off waivers from Tampa Bay on Oct. 11, the 6’2”, 213-pound Butler totaled 363 yards on 31 receptions last season with the Ravens.
  10. I'm with you, Petty definitely has the right mindset and approach - can't wait to see him play.
  11. Now that Geno is done - Petty should absolutely be playing the rest of the season. Starting Fitzpatrick at this point is counterproductive. Let Petty get all the first team regular season reps he can get - if he happens to get hurt, then play Hackenburg. Playing Fitzpatrick is just taking away the opportunity to try and develop our young QB's and see what we have in them.
  12. If Bowles plays Fitzpatrick the rest of the year of his own free will - he should be fired, period. If Woody Johnson is tying his hands because he wants to see his 12 million dollar investment on the field, well, what can you say to that? I said it 2 weeks ago and I'll continue to say it, Petty should be playing the rest of the year, this season is a wash. Let's get the kid some regular season reps with the starters and see what we really have in him.
  13. Can't argue with you there.
  14. I'd like to see Bryce Petty get the nod when he's healthy. Play him the rest of the year and see what we have when the dust settles.
