enough with the conspiracy crap

 

I can't wait intil izdik cleanses the circus.  too bad it's gonna take another off season

 

If he's been forcing the issue with Geno, then it may take longer than that.  No decent HC may want to take the job if they know that Idzik is going to be interfering with who starts.

why not? what has geno showed you so far that simms hasn't.  Why would a proven failure in sanchez give you more hope? I won't even comment on noodle arm McElroy. There is no concrete reason showing that Simms couldn't be legit....vice virsa too but hell, what do we got to lose.....what would make me respect Idzik more is seeing him call Simms # bc he is playing better rather than forcing it on Geno just bc he drafted him high. You make mistakes in the draft, it happens.....Geno maybe shoulda been a 3rd or 4th rounder with the way he is playing now.  Plus, do you not see the rocket Simms has for an arm?! And his energy is clearly contagious to the rest of the team....maybe even Holmes will even get on board with someone like him

Okay, I'm all for it.  Let's hope you're right.  Really at the rate we're going in McElroy will be starting in Week one.  I believe in a player's "energy". Good points.

I'm rarely right...I also wanted Brad Smith to be our QB at one point too.   :winking0001:

Simms was never a good player in college In spite of his big arm.  When he came to the Jets I figured it was a favor to his father.  When he was still on the team when OTA's open I posted" what is he still doing to the team, he's awful"

 

Got to say he has really intrigued me the last two weeks.  Last week 5-5, looked good.  This week think it was 10-14 with two drops a TD and a crazy 70 yard pass.   What an arm the kid has.  that 70'er to Spandola was incredible.  He was on the run threw form one step off the goal line, across his body, and off his back foot.  LOL.  Spandola caught it at the 40 on a line.  I've watched the play like 20 times on the replay.  Still impressed

 

It's fun to find a player every year that is a long shot to be a game changer.  Of course most of them go bust.  His father was certainly an excellent player, kids got a monster arm, so why not Simms?  Having the monster arm is about 70% of the battle.

 

I want to see him quite a bit against the Eagles.

He deserves it, sure.  So do whole lot of other kids.  I don't see Simms developing into anything.  Does the name Brett Ratliff mean anything to you?

 

 

Yeah, so do the names Kurt Warner, Tom Brady, Marc Bulger, Tony Romo, well you get my point.

I don't see it.

 

All of them started where Simms is right now. It can go either way. You dont know until they get out there. Brady was almost cut his rookie year and put on the PS. Romo was, Warner was bagging groceries. Some guys develop different then others. Simms could be Ratliff, or he could be great. You can't blame the guy for doing that well against the 3's. Its who he was playing against and that is not his fault. Sanchez went in against the 2's and almost destroyed his shoulder. My point is he has earned a move up and a look at what he can do.

your probably right.  Like I said in OTA's I thought he was a joke.   Kids had back to back good games.  Wanna see him again

I dont know why he wouldnt call simms number if he was playing better.  And by he, I mean whoever is making the decision, not too sure it is Idzik.  Simms has paid his dues the past year(or 2?).  Maybe Simms just doesnt have it yet.  I hate teh sanchez too but I would hope that our best healthy qb will take the field week 1.  that is the good thing about drafting Geno in rd 2.  No pressure on geno and no pressure on the jets to start him right away.

I love that emotion he showed, but that is labeled in the douchebag category from every opposing fan of any QB who does this, like Cutler, Rivers, and yes Tom Brady, if he is your guy you love it, but if he isn't you F'N HATE IT WITH A PASSION, AND CALL HIM A DOUCHE!!!! Some guys thou will still act like a Douche even when they suck, and it is not appropriate, for example Kyle Wilson the man pounds his chest after he gets burnt like toast, but the QB over threw the wide open WR, that to me is a ******* Douche. If a QB does this while sucking, and being down 24 points, or having a really bad season then yea he is a douche.


unless I missed some huge celebration, what about pumping your fists is douchy? he didn't do any cartwheels.
