    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.

    Luck, RG3, Tannehill, Weeden, Osweiler, Foles, WIlson.   
     
    Those were the QB's taken ahead of Cousins.   He may not be the second coming of Joe Montana but he is an instant upgrade to the NYJ QBs today.

    if the Bills can score any points at all this season they are going to be good.   that team is loaded with talent.    It's a tough spot for Rex, he has no QB and the expectations are for 10+ wins.

    maybe you forgot the buffalo game last year.  3 int's in like his first 5 passes.   He was benched because he stunk the joint up, not to learn as you suggest.

    and Geno was benched for an aged, broken down vick who is now out of football - what does that say about Geno?    
     
    Cousins is an upgrade from Geno.  As I said before, if Cousins had come out one year later he would have been the first QB taken in the draft - well ahead of Geno.

    cousins can play.   He would be an upgrade from all of the QB's on the jets roster today.   If he entered the draft the same year as geno cousins would have been the 1st QB off the board.

    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 think this is totally overblown in the NFL. This isn't high school football and these are grown men who know what to do and how to behave.

    It's not a leadership issue it's a QB issue.

  11. LionelRichie added a post in a topic The only solution to salvage this season is to trade for a QB.   

     
    Fitz at least gets the ball out quick and doesn't routinely backpedal with no real plan.   He may not throw the deep ball well but neither does Geno, regardless of arm strength.    
     
    Fitz certainly isn't my first choice but this is almost the exact same situation as 2013 and at least Mac has Fitz on the roster to avoid wasting the season with Petty.

    It's only preseason but Kirk cousins sure looked good.

    Cumberland + a late pick for cousins.

    I like this thread.   
     
    I was optimistic that geno grew up but alas not so much.  Geno was never going to be the answer so at least now we can move on.   If Dilfer can do it, so can Fitz.

     Kelly tried to mortgage the entire team for Mariota and Tennessee wasn't budging - how exactly were the Jets supposed to trade with a team that didn't want to trade?

    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.
