  1. Bryce Petty: odd man out if Fitz returns?

    Sorry for saying it but I will. Gene should be first team practice dummy
  2. Makes no sense-you mention size arm and mobility-all nice but with a qb you start with head, and accuracy arm strength and pocket awareness. He has great arm strength and size but but his accuracy is a question mark. Not knocking him but his value is further reduced by the system in which he played. Have no problem if he falls to us but top 10??????
  3. Happy Birthday Dad

    Happy Birthday to one of few here, who like me, remembers Dorow to Maynard
  4. Let Ivory Walk?

    You took the words out of my mouth-nothing more need be said
  5. BTW-Cannot happen as-they owe too much money for the afaik
  6. Difference was O malley was given chavez ravine-went from financially successful to immensely finically successful. He wanted to stay in New York but did not want Queens.
  7. Jets-Pats predictions

    Jets 31-14. BB pulls his Franchise after 2nd brutal sack early 2 nd qtr.
  8. QB

    No one can say Fitz is not a smart QB-his background and resume speak for themselves. Does he have a howitzer or a great gun -no, is he going to try to do more than he is capable of doing-probably on a rare occasion but he will rarely lose a game because of his head. Geno on the other hand does have the stronger arm but his head is nowhere near that of Fitz-he has constantly shown a propensity for forcing the ball into bad spots at the wrong time, his timing is an atrocity-he may occasionally win a game but is just as likely to lose a game (define career backup). Despite the apparent physical talent he doesn't have a quarterback's head (not saying he is not bright ) but doesn't think like a leader. Have said it before and am saying it again -his college stats were inflated by having two first round draft choices at end. Stay with Fitz until he shows we cannot win with him.
  9. Actually, as a Dodger fan growing up in Brooklyn, the Dodgers while successful were limited because of the capacity of Ebbets Field but the the City would not provide land in Brooklyn offering O'Malley land in Queens where Shea Stadium was eventually built. Los Angeles offered him not only the land where Dodger stadium was built but also several hundred acres around it making it a very lucrative financial package.
  10. The subject is mental masturbation-starting with the Jet obligations for the stadium here. No one would consider moving a financially successful organization as opposed to a franchise having difficulties. Then there is the question of relocating players and families to a foreign country even though that might be resolvable by financial and other incentives since England apparently very much wants a franchise there. The travel is not much worse than west coast trip by east coast teams.
  11. Francessa today

    Then I guess you don't remember Al Dorow throwing to Don Maynard?? Just teasing -a few years (almost two decades) before you were born
  12. Tim Tebow seems to be a decent person but is not a decent major league qb. If his ego permitted he probably would be good situational player. He has talent but not the talent required of a full time qb. Yes he throws well on occasion but not consistently, he can run well but not consistently or strong/fast enough so let's drop the love for him as a qb.
  13. except for the fact that it was the basis and probably is the basis for his wealth together with his jets ownership
  14. For only 50Gs a seat in owners box at every home game???? I ll take two-my grandson would love it. How many seats are there??? I have a few friends who would do it too. But fortunately or unfortunately depending on your viewpoint- Woody ( who seems like a nice man) won't do it for estate planning reasons. Plus he doesn't need the money despite the recent drop in JNJ stock price. Got to be a joke
