  1. we are not out of cap space, we are using it wisely. not overpaying for a backup QB that happens to start for us.
  2. of course you can say guys improved, Pryor wasn't the same player as a rookie as he was in year 2. again, if it was ONLY Marshall that is a HUGE difference but it wasn't just Marshall, over 300 rec yds at TE? seriously? we spent very wisely and we HAD to spend by league rules. the spending got us from 4 wins to 10 w/ a playoff chance.
  3. Kirwan on Fitz

    one thing he says is Geno is 4-10 against AFC east(which isn't true he's 4-7 which is 36%) but Fitz has a longer track record in the AFC east and his record is 9-18(33%)
  4. if we stopped at just Marshall it would be light years better than 2014(we won't even discuss 2013 even though that was Geno's only full season) but it wasn't just Marshall it was a HEALTHY Decker, Enunwa, the emergence of Powell as a receiver, the upgraded OL, the OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR who Fitz had a history with. defensively it was night and day. Williams, another year of Richardson and wilkerson, thes econdary was the worst in football in 2014 and was one of the better units in 2015. Revis at 80% is still a top 5-10 corner, Cro was good most of the year, Skrine at nickel, Pryor in year 2. it wasn't close. I just don't know what to tell you if you think the talent was similar in 2014 and 2015. I'm not sure how you spend hundreds of millions in an offseason if that is the case.
  5. Kirwan on Fitz

    I don't recall him giving away too many short fields what I remember is him killing us w/ deep INTs when we had excellent FP.
  6. it's not assumption, we had so much more talent in 2015 than 2014 or 2013 that it's ridiculous to even discuss. I don't judge based on stats alone, I weight heavily how players do in big spots and in the biggest spot Fitz failed so I can't get that out of my head.
  7. Kirwan on Fitz

    this article/interview is so flawed it's beyond comical. I will cut and paste my thoughts from a different thread; http://realfootballnetwork.com/2016/05/26/the-case-for-fitzpatrick/ He states Geno has a 4-10 record against the AFC east but that is incorrect, he is 4-7 as a starter against the AFC East including 3-3 his first year(same 3-3 record Fitz had this year w/ much more talent around him). if he can't get the basics right how would I trust other things he says? next he says Fitz had a 3-1 record against NE and Miami, while true Miami was a train wreck and 2 of those wins came against Miami and the lone win against NE they were disinterested so for Kirwin we throw out the 2 Buffalo games that decided our season and focus on 2 games w/ Miami Next he says in 61 career games under gailey he has thrown 102 Tds and 69 INTs. That's nice but he did lead the league in INTs one of those 4 seasons and want to know what his record is? 26-35, only been close to the playoffs one time and we know how that ended. next he talks about TDs on 3rd downs, not sure how we can trust his #s when he gets many basic things wrong but assume it's correct, I'd imagine throwng the ball up for Marshall and decker would help any QB on 3rd down and what is funny about mentioning those 11 TD passes on 3rd downs he fails to mention SIX of his INTs came on 3rd downs. I wonder why? he was 9th in 4th qtr TD passes! he threw 8 of them, just spectacular! but he threw 8 INTs too but no mention of that.let's look at the 4th qtr TDs: week 2 at Indy: big play after he kept Indy in what should have been a blowout and I think Marshall gets most of the credit for this one: meaningless TD vs. Philly 2 yd TD in blowout vs. washington TD pass vs. jax but again a great play by Marshall(gif wasn't working). to decker vs. Buf- got us back in game, couldn't finish it though 3 yarder to Marshall in blowout vs. Miami tying TD to Marshall at Giants, great play but he threw it up to his big WR who made the play. 3 yarder to decker at Dallas, big play is this impressive? now let's look at the 4th qtr INTs: 2 vs. Philly in what turned out to be a 1 score loss. ended game at home vs. Buf(would have needed a miracle in that spot though so I don't blame him) 2 at Houston w/ plenty of time in one score loss 3 at Buf which cost us our season this shows that the INts were worse than the TDs were good. dropped passes happen, how many times did our receivers snatch bad throws which would have been incomplete or picked? that stuff evends out so I don't buyt the dropp passes or dropped INTs stats. he also said he had 53 passes of 20+ yds(not sure if accurate) but when you have playmakers catching and running that number is skewed and tells us he had more than Newton(who had no WRs), Ben who only started 11 games, Flacco who started 10 games, Matt Ryan(who cares?) and Matt Stafford(who cares?) this was an awful argument by Kirwin and now I know why we had such a crappy franchise when he was a part of it.
  8. nah, they sucked and so did Tannenbaum and everyone else. the league just allowed us to make title games b/c they were being nice.
  9. and on the Giant teams, they proved capable of winning SUPER BOWLS so they had Super Bowl talent and could only win 10 and 9 games in reg seasons in weak division and missed playoffs 6 of last 7 seasons.
  10. Let's look at that, shall we? http://realfootballnetwork.com/2016/05/26/the-case-for-fitzpatrick/ He states Geno has a 4-10 record against the AFC east but that is incorrect, he is 4-7 as a starter against the AFC East including 3-3 his first year(same 3-3 record Fitz had this year w/ much more talent around him). if he can't get the basics right how would I trust other things he says? next he says Fitz had a 3-1 record against NE and Miami, while true Miami was a train wreck and 2 of those wins came against Miami and the lone win against NE they were disinterested so for Kirwin we throw out the 2 Buffalo games that decided our season and focus on 2 games w/ Miami Next he says in 61 career games under gailey he has thrown 102 Tds and 69 INTs.

  11. ok, but we made it under rex, right? we couldn't do it under the Mangenious a year earlier w/ a cake sched, no Brady and a HOF QB but we manged to do it w/ Rex w/ Brady around, tougher sched and a rookie QB. delusion would be the person giving rex no credit for doing what he did here. "lucked in" too bad we couldn't "luck in" last year by beating rex ONCE, we did have to play the Indy starters for 2 1/2 qtrs in 2009- that is harder than beating a banged up mediocre 2015 Bills team. who cares what Bills fans say? their team hasn't made the playoffs since 1999, they are impatient. he did regress after 2010- why? year after year following 2010 they stripped talent away from him then changed coaches and schemes every year. He's still very capable in the right spot, if we had him last year we make the playoffs. Mark in Philly in 2014 led Philly's O to 27.1 PPG Fitz led us in 2015 to 24.5 which is better? 27.1 or 24.5?
  12. the difference is Coughlin was losing w/ rosters capable of winning SBs. No issue w/ making a change, he didn't get it done in 4 years, I think it was more of a talent issue but he is judged on wins and losses. Actually I choose to discuss players/coaches/GMs realistically. I back those that have helped my team win. I appreciate what Herm did- was he great? of course not but we made the playoffs 3 of 5 years and I like that. I appreciate what Chad did- was he great? No but when healthy we were always in the playoffs with him and I like that. I appreciate what tannenbaum, Sanchez and rex did- were they great? nope but they helped get my team closer to a SB than we have come since SB III so I like that and when people try to bash them and tell me how they sucked I will back them and reality.
  13. I am a part of but not a reason for it. we are the only fanbase that can bash successful players, coaches, gms and back ones that never did anything. of course in 2 years when they are gone then we'll bash them and back the new guys. My "agenda" is the truth. I don't pretend Rex was Vince Lombardi but I do appreciate what he did while he was here. I don't need to bash him b/c he did a bad job in 2014, I choose to remember the good times where we got closer to a SB than at any time since SB III.
  14. let me get this straight, the guy who does nothing but praise the QB who threw 3 INTs in a win and in game and was a major reason why we missed is now bashing the 2009/2010 Jets who made AFC Championship Games? "backed in"- I love this, know how we "backed in" in 2009? by winning 5 of our last 6 games and once in we won 2 road playoff games including beating the hottest team in football in the div rd. Know how many road playoff wins we had in history to that point(1960-2008)? THREE. A year later they built on 2009 by winning 11 games and AGAIN 2 road playoff games(the total of 4 in those 2 seasons is more than we have had the rest of our history combined) w/ this time beating our hated rival on the road in the biggest game ever btw the 2 teams. You can't make this stuff up, it is why we have the worst fanbase in sports.
