  1. Skrine is so bad.

    In the mind of Bowles, young players making inexperienced mistakes are worse than vets routinely making the same mistakes. Makes no sense. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  2. Jets d not qb lost this game

    You know how a QB is going to turn out based off the first 4 games of his career? Cool. Let me know when you get hired by the league. Bottom line, the only reason we are playing McCown is bc he isn't supposed to make the same mistakes as a young QB (like consistently blowing TO's and having something called situational awareness). Since he clearly can't do these things it makes no sense to keep trotting him out there. You can make fun of other fans all you want but remember you're the one here shouting that the season isn't over and that we have legit shot at the playoffs. We'll see how well that prediction plays out Nostradamus. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  3. ### Jets \ Dolphins Game Thread ###

    Is Fox trying to save dough and broadcast this in SD? Quality looks horrible Sent from my iPad using JetNation.com mobile app

    Oh god...at least the guy is honest enough to put Junkie in his name!
  5. Your argument is laughable. Let's throw away Petty because of his first 4 games with the utter clusterf*** of a team that was last year but let's give Hack a chance even though he hasn't shown 1/10th of the potential of Petty. Makes total sense!
  6. This, in my opinion, is the worst part of all of this. We literally JUST went through this exact situation with Fitzpatrick. We all already know the ending to this story. We witnessed it with our own eyes and yet fans want a repeat of the 2015 and 2016 seasons. Holy sh*t!
  7. This is flat out false. Hack played better in the early stages of TC but after the first PS game or so, Petty picked it up and started clawing 1st team reps away from Hack. There were a number of days where the reporters named Petty the best QB of the day.
  8. For the sake of argument, let's say Petty ends the season with 10 starts and stats of 62% comp percentage, 20 TD's, 5 INTs, 2 Fumbles, 2,600 yards. The Jets win 5 of the games. Is that enough to justify not using our first round pick on a QB? Possibly. Is it likely to happen? Probably not. But no one (not you, not me, not Bowles, Mac) knows for ABSOLUTE certainty that it couldn't.
  9. Multiple people, including myself have already answered this question. It seems you started this thread just to show how obstinate you could be. Your original ? was how can not playing Petty hurt the Jets now, or in the future. Posters have answered how not playing Petty hurts the Jets in the future. Is there a way that Petty plays so well that we don't draft a QB in April? No. But his play could affect WHERE we draft a QB in the draft.
  10. QBs don't just magically get better over time. They get better with game experience. Just bc Petty wasn't better than McCown to start the season (if that was even the case since there wasn't a true open competition) doesn't mean he wouldn't have been better by the end. The bottom line is our extremely risk averse HC took the safe route which hurts the team in the long-term bc Petty (or Hack) could be taking their lumps and getting game exposure in a season where I can guarantee you we won't be making the playoffs but are instead sitting on the sidelines watching a player that should not be here next year.

  11. Not to mention all 3 had major injury concerns that played into the decision of the teams letting them go. I wouldn't even consider Palmer a FQB but I guess all we need is to wait for the next franchise QB to fuse their neck, blow out their knee or tear their throwing labrum on a team with a high first round pick and we'll be golden. Maybe MAC should be making a call to GB to see if they still want Rodgers??? Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  12. I don't understand how you can post this and be the same guy who started the thread. This is literally the reason fans want to see Petty and believe not starting him is hurting the team. This is your answer! Logically if you are a HC on the hot seat who would you start? QB1: only 4 starts, likely begins the season as a 3/10 but could potentially end the season as a 7/10 with more experience. OR QB2: 15 years experience, hit his ceiling already. Will begin the season at a 5/10 and end it that way too. The best interests of the team long term is to find out whether QB1 can grow into a 7/10 player and possibly more in future seasons. The best interests of a HC in the short term is to go with the guy that guarantees you a 5/10 so you can at least pick up 3-5 wins and try to save your job.

  13. And I presume you are basing that off of what Petty showed when he played in live action with the other starters right? Oh.... Wait..... Sent from my iPad using JetNation.com mobile app
  14. Let me know the last time a team acquires a franchise QB through a trade or UDFA. Maybe Favre? Sent from my iPad using JetNation.com mobile app
  15. Funny thing is that the fans that talk about winning culture are usually the same ones that say you shouldn't Tank because in the modern NFL you can rebuild a team in just one or two off seasons with a great GM. Sent from my iPad using JetNation.com mobile app
