Preseason means nothing. The Jets are loaded with veterans on both sides of the ball whose lone goal is to avoid injury during the preseason.
Bowles mentioned in an interview this week that they are barely even calling defenses and basically just letting guys run around. The value in preseason is for the backups (Petty) to get some game experience.
That being said, Fitzpatrick's lack of arm strength is worrisome. He may be done as a starting NFL QB.
If the Jets stink it up vs. the browns in week 1 then it's going to be a long season. Other than that, no injuries to the starters = a good preseason game.
when you look at the alleged "great leaders" of recent memory none of them really won anything without a franchise QB.
You don't hear about the Packers having a great leader, they just have Aaron Rodgers. These are grown ass men, most of them between 25-35 with wives and kids. This isn't "All the Right Moves" playing for a scholarship and a way out of the coal mine. These guys are paid millions of dollars to be professionals.
It's easy to blame lack of leadership but really it comes down to QB play in today's NFL.
I like Cousins and he would definitely be a better fit for Gailey. I don't know why people hate cousins so much, he can play, has had NFL experience, and is a better option than Geno. He's also a smart player and would have a legitimate chance to learn the offense in the next few weeks.
