  1. Thoughts

    Also, it seems to that there were too many timeouts for a veteran QB. Critical mistake in a close game.
  2. Lately, our home stadium is filled with at least 30% opposing teams' fans. So there's a floor for "fan" support.
  3. That's cool. A big factor in my giving up my seats is that my kids aren't really into it. They love hockey. Go figure.
  4. I thought about it for a long time and decided to give up my PSLs. I listed them on some exchange sites and didn't get any bites by the time the Jets forced me to either pay for this season's tickets or give up my rights. So I walked away from the PSLs. Four seats in 113 at the 50 yard line. The PSLs have negative value because those seats are so expensive. No one would pay for the right to pay $700/ticket to see the Jets. It'll feel great not having to pay top dollar for preseason games. And there have been something like four home playoff games in the 31 seasons that I had tickets So it's not like I'm walking away from too many premium events. I'll go to one or two games.
  5. Dan Quinn

    Yup. And, above all, I'm hoping it gets much younger next year. And smarter and more dynamic. But none of this has anything to do with what Quinn has done in Atlanta.

    Maybe, but it's a young unit. Three rookie starters. Four second year starters. Seems like a pretty solid achievement to me.
  7. Fitzpatrick deserves a D. His TD should have been intercepted. But, worse, he's so darn inaccurate. Watching him in contrast to Big Ben was especially depressing. Ben was hitting everyone in stride. Fitz, not so much.
  8. I like the delay. It separates the play itself from the commentary. Radio is great for injuries, penalties and info like key blocks, etc. It enriches the experience for me. Plus I like the Jet broadcasters. On the downside, it's a bit antisocial. My Solomonic solution is to go with just one ear bud.
  9. Sleepers for Washington Game

    Lorenzo Mauldin. I like the things he said after the last game. He seems to be an accountable dude. He's not going to take his position for granted. I think he will 'flash' tomorrow night. (I think he qualifies as a sleeper for purposes of this thread)
  10. It seems that the team is getting deeper, younger and faster. Win or lose, we are now built to compete (at least building toward competing) in the modern NFL. It's amazing to me how quickly the team has built this depth in only two years.
  11. It's both, Stub Hub and the PSLs. PSLs were sold to the fans - at least in part - as an investment. In many cases they are a significant sunk cost (relative to the cost of an idividual ticket). Some season ticket holders 'offer' the seats on Stub Hub in the hopes of defraying the cost of the PSLs. If they get the price they want then they sell the seats, usually to the opponents fans; if not then they go to the game. The Jets set up this adversarial relationship with its most loyal fans and I don't blame anyone for availing themselves of the opportunity to cut into the cost of the PSLs. After all, it's an 'investment,' not just a ticket to the game. I'm a long time season ticket holder. I try to go to every game. This is just my observation based on being at the stadium and sometimes talking to 'road' fans in nearby seats.
  12. ***Jets sign Cromartie***

    If I understand the big picture strategy employed by the new regime, it is: Spend the available cap money now on short term deals for older players in order to field a competitive team while not burdening the franchise with potentially crippling contracts. In that light I am in favor of all these deals, the bulk of which carry commitments of three years or less. My hope (and prayer) is that while these contracts age out the Jets will replace these guys with young talented players who will fill in and continue what promises to be a golden age of winning seasons for the Jets. The notable exceptions are: Skrine and Carpenter, both whom are young and in possession of physical gifts that this regime has identifies as being worth longer term commitments. Good stuff, I think. In retrospect it makes Idzik's strategy appear to be that much more foolish.
  13. Whoops. What's wrong with our money?
