  1. I like the idea of resigning Geno, if only because one of the rare pleasures I get out of this team is watching virtual heads explode in here.
  2. I don't think Woody should guarantee Bowles his job next year. Bowles hasn't performed well enough to deserve such a guarantee, to put it mildly. But it is Woody's team, and Bowles reports directly to him. Woody should direct Bowles to play Petty and/or Hackenberg the rest of the way because that's what's best for his football team long term. Either you get the kids experience, or you make the determination that they suck. Either way, you're better prepared for the offseason. Signing Fitzpatrick in the first place was an act of just spinning the wheels to begin with (in my ever humble opinion), but continuing to trot him out there at this point is reminiscent of the definition of insanity.
  3. I've been enjoying the freedom of being able to walk away from the television set.
  4. Every reason to go for it. The analytics say you should go for it on fourth down every time. You're 3-7, you go for it. You push the boundaries that the league's pussified coaches are afraid to broach, and try exciting new aggressive things. There's nothing to lose except a lower draft pick.
  5. Someone explain the risk of going for it on fourth down when you're 3-7. Thanks in advance.
  6. Five of those twelve million count against next year's cap. They weren't sitting on any money, they had to borrow to pay a bad QB.
  7. I've been telling friends and family: this might just be the year that I stopped caring about the N.Y. Jets and the NFL in general. I knew Fitzpatrick would be a franchise spinning its wheels, but the uninspiring head coach and player performances all around have left me completely uninterested. I had more interest in the Kotite years.
  8. A couple Cadillac Margaritas and a whole fish over at Joe Jack's Fish Shack won't hurt. Gracias!
  9. Oh noes! Don't attack my level of fan hood! However will I recover!
  10. I'm in Puerto Vallarta right now. I decided to find an update on the game from the beach, and instead found a link to a live feed. This was the fourth quarter, the game was close, and I was pretty psyched to watch the actual CBS feed on my phone. So what do I get to see? Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing a pick in the endzone nowhere even close to a green jersey. I honestly can't recall a time I was this disinterested in this team.
  11. It didn't hurt my feelings. It just didn't register at all as comedy. It was both old and lame. Bad combination.
  12. Wow. Did you work that out all on your own? Of course, you're right. A huge swath of the fanbase hates him. The Jets can't bring him back. I really don't understand why he was still on the team once they decided to resign Fitz. It makes no sense. Jet fans will boo him during introductions tomorrow. They'll be merciless at every incompletion, and rabid after any turnover. I would be surprised if they haven't already stepped up Petty's preparation to play. It's only a matter of time. Geno could put up a perfect passer rating tomorrow, and there would be people here crediting everyone but him. It's just the way it is. It would be nice if fans were hoping for some kind of spark from the QB change, but it's really too much to ask from this fan base. Better to make stupid Home Depot jokes. Either way, Geno and Fitz are both gone next year. Both will still be in the NFL, though. Be interesting to see which one gets the better deal/opportunity.
  13. Ryan Fitzpatrick isn't a starting QB.
