  1. Really? Carr has been good from day 1. Cousins was good once the owner got over his mancrush on RG III. Manning took about a year, but isn't that normal for QBs? Smith I'll give you, but I think that's just more of finding the right system. The difference is that all of these guys had success at college and took time to adjust to the NFL game. Hackenberg was benched at Penn State and can't even get some garbage time snaps on a 5-11 team. I seriously doubt that he will ever be more than a clipboard holder.
  2. Please tell me how a team can go an entire game without one penalty even called. Unbelievable. Those two PI non-calls were ridiculous
  3. Same old Jets-Pats. Two blatant PIs against NE don't get called and the Jets can't get a stop at the end. Why do I even watch?
  4. Don't forget Mariota has started for the better part of 3 years. The was Petty's first game. This is a bad team. Secondary is horrible, OL is horrible and the other units aren't much better with the exception of the D line. It's going to be 3-4 years before this team is any good and that is if we hit on every draft pick, which is not likely.
  5. Wow. I guess having Rodgers, Brady, Manning, Roethlisberger and Flacco has nothing to do with winning. You don't win in this league without a franchise QB. Period.
  6. Fitz and/or Geno are not the root causes that are holding the team back. The root cause of all of this the series of horrible drafts dating back to the Tannenbaum era. NO team in the NFL could survive competitively getting 2 decent starters out of those 5 or 6 drafts. Both of these 2 QBs are stopgaps. Whether our future QB is on the roster yet is unknown, but I wouldn't feel good about them. There is no evidence at this point that they will ever be competent starters in the NFL.
  7. Gonna be a long time before they are good. They are in desperate need of OL, DB, TE and probably some linebackers.
  8. The days of them selling out with season tickets are gone. There is no waiting list to take up the slack.
  9. Get 22,000 people to stop buying tickets, they will care. Anything else is just noise.
  10. My condolences, Brenda. Having also lost my mom to the dreaded Big C in the last year, I wish you the best in dealing with the loss.
  11. If this is true, then Idzik deserves to be fired immediately. I personally don't think the guy can tell a football player from a sausage, but if was intentional.... I bet there are a lot of ticket holders that would want some kind of refund.
  12. McDougle was injured a lot in college, and it looks like he will continue the trend here. I am not impressed with Amaro at all. He has dropped more than he has caught and doesn't block very well. The 18th pick in the draft has to be more than an 'ok' player. Right now Pryor looks more like Kyle Wilson than a solid starter. And in today's NFL, guys who hit hard have two things happen to them: they get penalized and they get concussed. What's long-term? 3 years? 5 years? If they are not very good for 5 years, but continue to play because they have no one better, is that good?
  13. What a crock. I'd be willing to bet that there are no people at Korn Ferry that have any front office experience in a sports franchise. They recommended the guy you would expect from Korn Ferry.... a bean counter who can't tell a football player from a sausage. 50+ years of following this team and I've never felt this low, even in the Kotite years. There are maybe 6 players and a couple of secretaries who can stay. Everyone else needs to be gone. Including the owner.
  14. Peyton threw the ball to Decker because he was OPEN. Brady throws to people who have achieved separation. Yes, they make the occasional tight throw, but they generally throw to open receivers. Has Andrew Luck suddenly turned to crap, or has Reggie Wayne being out changed their offense? You can blame the scheme, sure, but these guys they have out there now either can't, or don't know how to get open. Quite a few times during the last game, CBS showed overhead shots of the patterns being run, and every Jet receiver had a Dolphin on him like a second skin. No QB could complete passes in that situation. I don't know if Geno can be a good QB and neither does anyone else here. Until there are some playmakers on this team, no one will be successful.
  15. Wilson was skipped over by the entire NFL for over 4 rounds. It wasn't just Kiper. Franchise QBs are very rarely evident coming out of college. For every Peyton, there are many more Ryan Leafs or Jamarcus Russels. Not to defend Geno, he has been terrible, but Marino, Elway, or even Manning couldn't do anything with these receivers. There is never any separation, and every one of them can be taken out of the game by the lowliest cornerback. Until we get some playmakers, no QB will be successful here.
