  1. Yes but it would be nicer to have a good CB.
  2. It's a very low risk contract but also very low reward. If the guy plays like a pro bowl player, finally realizing his first round potential, then he will get too expensive to re-sign. I wish they had paid him a little more to get a 2nd year on the deal, so if he plays well, they can have him when he can make more of an impact, rather then in a completely rebuilding year.
  3. Why change after such a good season? Doesn't really make sense if he isn't getting a HC job.
  4. My criteria is this: Will the guy ever coach a super bowl winner? Will he coach one in his next spot if another team hires him? If both answers are no, and I think they are, then I fire Bowles now. I would keep Mac and give him a chance to hire his own coach.
  5. The most important role for the gm in my opinion, is picking the right coach. This was Tanny's biggest failure. He always tailored the personel to the coaches preference anyway. Maybe Mangini wasn't all bad, but Tanny might of pulled the plug too early, succumbing to pressure from Woody. Rex was the real disaster, going for the splashy pick who eventually got him fired.
  6. I'm not calling them out I'm just saying we wouldn't be any better off he we had the first pick in the draft this year, we still wouldn't know if we had found a franchise QB. It takes time to find out and we already invested some in Petty, lets see it through. If I was a Ram or Eagles fan I would argue to give those guys the time to prove themselves too.
  7. Agreed. So tired of the Brian Hoyers, Josh McCowns, and Ryan Fitzpatricks of the world. QB's with no possibility of leading a team to the Super Bowl. Find out if the young ones can play. Petty showed he is at least ready enough to play to show whether he is good enough. Hack should know enough by year two to at least not be overwhelmed. If they aren't the future then waiting a year to find out with another veteran retread just pushes finding a franchise QB farther down the road.
  8. I agree in principle with drafting a QB until we find one, but we have to give the ones we drafted time to develop or we won't ever find out if they're good enough. Would you rather have Goff, who went 1st in the draft last year? So far he looks terrible. How about Wentz? He started out great but now looks very mediocre, certainly not a sure thing. Petty just had his first start after a full week of reps with the first team. He showed some promise. He has intangibles, good size and a great arm. No one knows if he will be great yet, but he certainly could be. Give him the next three games, a full off season as number one, and next year we should know what we have.
  9. I think it's way to early to pull the plug on Bowles. Coming off the year Fitz had last year I think it was reasonable wanting him back for one more year. He had all his receivers returning, he was working with a system he knew very well, and the Jets seemed set up to be a contender. Fitz played great last year so I don't fault Bowles or Mac for that. His game management has been disappointing, mostly for how conservative he is even late in games. I don't know if that will change, that seems to be his nature, but some coaches win that way. Revis's game falling off a cliff, Mo not playing well ( I think his leg was not 100%), the OL being hit by many injuries, that is all stuff that was difficult to predict. I think Mac is a good GM and I believe he will improve the personnel going forward. Hopefully Petty will provide good QB play or they will find a stop gap next year, and the young defensive players like Mauldin, Jenkins, Burris, and Lee will improve and form a strong nucleus and can play the way Bowles wants to play. He deserves at least another year with the type of players he wants, not retreads from the Ryan years. The last coach we pulled the plug on without giving at least 3 years was Pete Carroll and that didn't work out so well. You hire a coach, your stuck with him for at least 3 years in my opinion, unless he is totally clueless, and Bowles was 10-6 last year. Shuffling the deck so often never seems to work in the NFL, look at the Browns. The best teams in the NFL have stable long term management, it's not time to blow up the Jets yet.
  10. Don't forget the fake spike, that was the all time worst!
  11. Never.... 11 when they won the Super Bowl. I was never a Jet fan by choice, I fell in love at an impressionable age. I can't just choose to root for another team, it's in my blood.
  12. Bring on Robby Anderson, star in the making!
  13. I'm starting to worry about Petty. 3 weeks of no practicing after a bruised shoulder and no structural damage? Sounds like they aren't telling us something. I remember with Sanchez they didn't decide he needed surgery until about 8 weeks after the Snoopy Bowl injury. I really hope Petty gets back on the field for his own development's sake.
  14. I don't know much about Gilmore but it's hard for me to believe when trying to tackle someone at game speed you can just stop yourself when you inadvertently grab a facemask. That's why you see a facemask penalty almost every game. He apparently apologized to Marshall after the game so I think calling him a POS is a bit harsh. Maybe undisciplined with his technique but I don't think it was intentional. I doubt a neutral football fan would think this play so egregious. As a side note I think Simms is pretty fair when he calls Jet games, it's Nance that hates the Jets.
