    Super Bowl III
  • Where you alive for Super Bowl III?
    Yes
  1. Villian has a good point. While a mentor doesn't have to be a superstar during his glory days, his ability to help a young QB requires him to have been an effective QB himself earlier in his career. Fitz was Fitz, and McCown was the guy the Dolphins cut immediately as soon as Chad Pennington became available during the Favre year. Immediately. Which means they were basically sick of McCown already, even though he was brought on to be a "mentor" to Chad Henne and were looking for some excuse to unload him.
  2. Still that young? Seems like he was here ages ago.
  3. LOL, even though I disagree with you on Geno, if you post one or two private messages where he is offering to fight you, it would do a lot to restore your reputation. PS: If you post the screenshots, do yourself a favor and DON'T post the guy's name or address, even if you somehow know it. Just his offer to fight you in the screenshots. I'm trying to extract maximum humor from this, we don't want the chance of any physical retaliation. Mods: Please let him post the screenshots. One of the things I love about JetNation, which we've gotten away from a little, is how the threads frequently turn into these offbeat conversations that you don't see on other, less creative boards. I for one would get a kick out of seeing those PMs.
  4. Geno might actually fit in with the Giants. There were rumors about his leadership not being a strength at W.Va, and when he came to the Jets he walked into a locker room full of toxic types. A QB with better leadership skills might have turned that around, but Geno at that point didn't have those skills developed. Plus his receivers were straight off the unemployment line. The Giants, like 'em or hate 'em, have been known as a strong organization who don't put up with toxic players long unless they have LT type talent. With one of Geno's major weaknesses so minimized, he might be a fit for the Giants. Not that he's going to play much in the regular season for the next couple of years anyway.
  5. At the stage of his career that Glennon is at now, Kurt Warner was considered not anything and would never be anything.
  6. Kurt Warner was benched for McCown.
  7. He's lightweight, so he might have some problems getting off the line of scrimmage. He has problems with drops, although people have improved on that during their career. What he does have is a wonderful ability to get open deep, and he's shown it repeatedly. So he should be given the chance to show he's improving next year as well.
  8. You like to to think Gailey was a good offensive coordinator, but who told him to run an offense with no TE? Apparently he thought that Enunwa could be an H back and a TE is unnecessary. Didn't work out.
  9. As a rookie and second year man, (part of the season), Glennon had 30 TDs and 15 INT's. I'll take that ratio. And outside of Vincent Jackson, who's good-but-not-great, all he had for receivers and the backfield were scrubs who were on their way out of the league. The better ones had a short career in Canada. Plus, have you ever seen Glennon throw the football? His accurate passes speak volumes.
  10. "The Glennon Love" on the forum is due to the fact that the guy can pass. Long and accurate. How long has it been that we've had someone who can do that?
  11. That Bowles and Parcells have different styles still doesn't mean that you necessarily get rid of a coach for a bad season. There are other factors involved. I wouldn't be surprised or dismayed if Bowles did get fired, I just think that constantly going through coaches and general managers is the answer.
  12. So now we're complaining that the Jets had the nerve to win a game? It's Christmas-let yourself be optimistic. It will all work out in the end.
  13. Bill Parcells won three games his first year as an NFL coach. His major QB decision was to bench Phil Simms and play Scott Brunner. On his staff were Bill Belichick and Romeo Crennel.
  14. Now that's the kind of posting JetNation used to have all the time. Where did it all go?
  15. That's true. He grew up in Texas and went to Oklahoma. Not states noted for rainfall, (although parts of Texas are deluged with huge floods right now).
