Petty is the guy.

Geno? Why? So he can stomp up and down the sidelines as soon as one of them have a bad run then proceed to enter game and suck himself...no thanks....if you are going to bring on 3rd QB it needs to be someone who will help the pups.

I dont want to pay more than say $2.5 mil.   Who did you have in mind at ANY price below $5 million?

Geno's rookie year is as good a year as we have had with a QB since 2011. He has more raw talent and was never developed.

  Fitz last year was lucky .. he sucks.

I don't know if Petty is the guy but he's got 3 more games to earn the right to compete for the starting job.... then he's got camp to earn it for real.

Yesterday it was nice to see him show some heart and grit but the true test starts on Saturday with 3 divisional games in a row. Play well against the competition and he might just be the guy.

IMO, Petty has already shown significant growth.

In his previous start, he, like the FitzLOSER he replaced, had a chance to win and, instead, made a play to lose the game (the INT). In this game, he made plays to WIN the game and didn't make plays, in crunch time, to lose it.

He's already surpassed his Fitzmentor.

I suggest Hoyer.  I think $2.5 would get him.  Josh McCown is behind Griffin and Kessler now and due $3.6 next year.  Might be worth a 6th/7th.  Even though they suck, I think there is value in having guys that have been through a few camps and unlike Geno, they won't be pouting or throwing tantrums on the sideline.

I'd bring in a Hoyer had Petty played 6-8 games this year and looked good-decent. If he continues to progress he'd earn himself the right to compete for the job next year. 2017 should be about finding a potential long term answer at the position, not a retread. I'd go in to camp with Petty, Geno and Hackenberg. Let them battle it out. 3 young guys.

Please stop with the mention of Gino next year-he won't be here. He was drafted here because he had 2 first round draft choices to catch balls in college, has physical skills but not the judgment required. He has shown little or no development, Has never shown leadership skills. We have to rebuild the Line, get or develop a quality tight end among other things. We should sink or swim with Petty and Hack and a new HC. Bowles seems to be a bright guy and was considered a quality DC but not the decision maker required of the man in charge of the game.

Best case scenario Saturday is another close 2nd half for Petty to show his mental toughness. Young QBs are working with such a small playbook. Most of the plays Petty made yesterday were of the, I'm bailing & slinging variety, nothing wrong with that. I got a kick out of our fans saying, "he won't get away with that all the time", Brett Favre made a LIVING on that sh*t early in his career. I saw a special on Favre & it was hilarious, Mike Holmgren called it the noooooo......YES offense,lol. Took Holmgren years to reign Favre in & make him a QB. When Petty scrambled to his left & threw that deep one to Anderson, that was a noooooo.....YES! moment. Very few players can do that sh*t, so god knows what Petty could possibly be? He could be a footnote in Jets history, BAD PRACTICE PLAYER, Great game day QB. You just never know.

Dak Prescott playing with the best Oline & the best RB in football  was like 1 for 15 on 3rd down last night! Granted the Giants D is pretty good but everything is relative. Petty played behind a bottom 5 oline with guys being moved all over the place & Bilal Powell. How would Dak or Wentz look in that same scenario?

1st off I think it is a pipe dream that Geno would even WANT to come back

2nd even on slight chance he wanted to he would be ruining his career because at the slightest mistakes the boobirds would come out in full...maybe he is narsisist and goes for that sort of thing but clearly min half the fan base is done with him

so regardless of what Gruden says with diareah of the mouth it ain't happening

However you slice it there will be a QB drama next year. Wouldn't be the Jets of late if there wasn't. I didnt see the game but caught the highlights. This kid has got talent. He is definitely a gun slinger. Style does actually remind me of Favre. He made some tough tbrows. He is going to struggle and make mistakes. It's only his second start. But the kids got heart, guts, and a rifle arm.

To me, Petty is the guy until proven otherwise. There really isn't anyone that would be available that I want starting over Petty. Hackenberg only if he doesn't look as sh*tty as he did in preseason.

Glennon.  Tyrod Taylor if the bills cut him

 

I'm happy petty won a game and made Bowles look like a doofus but he played ok at best against a bad defense

I don't trust this coaching staff.  Watch Hack get in a real game and look like Brady

Anything is possible I guess, but Hack looked pretty grim in camp this pre-season.

Hope your right.  Not real trusting  of the coaching staff either.

These are the same clowns who acted like Fitz was Joe Montana compared to Petty

So just to be clear, you're writing off Petty completely after his first 2 NFL starts and a few late game fill in appearances?

And Hack based on his rookie year Preseason only.

How long are you planning on giving Glennon before you start demanding he be cut, 3 quarters, or just his first incompletion?

He has to build on his second half.  He made every throw in those two quarters. Lasers in tight windows from the pocket, outside touch passes, out routes to the flat, scrambling darts downfield they all happened in that second half and he only took 2 sacks. 

He needs to figure out his long ball and some back shoulder stuff but there is enough to be encouraged about.

Sorry

Last thing we need are Tyrod ---we already had our Geno

Or Glennon the Statue who makes Kenny O Brien look like Fran Tarkenton

Mixed bag as expected. The one thing I'll say is this, whatever he needs to work on (footwork, internal clock to throw away ball instead of taking sacks, pocket awareness, rhythm with wr's and routes) can all be corrected or developed with reps, time, and experience.

Whereas, his heart, his arm strength, his accuracy on some deep throws and tight windows, his escapability, his poise under pressure, and balls to make a play. None of those can be taught.

I didnt like the sacks. But they weren't all on him. I also prefer a young developing QB to take sacks instead of throwing picks and fumbling (Sanchez , Geno) when the pocket collapses.

Have you watched any of the Games he played in or did you just read the scouting reports. I was at 2 of the Games he played in and watched all of his games. I was surprised to see how well he moved in the pocket stepping up and avoiding the rush and finding his open receiver. His scouting reports stated that he had limited mobility in the pocket and doesn't avoid the rush which was a major knock on him coming out of school. I was surprised when I watched him play how well he moved in the pocket and felt the rush. It appeared he countered a lot of his flaws that were written about him when he played, granted it was not a full season but enough to be impressed with given the games he did play in.

There is a HUGE difference between Geno & Tyrod! Tyrod takes care of the ball. Very few turnovers. Glennon moved around enough, you don't have to be Michael Vick to play QB, Brady, Bradford, Stafford and many more play in the NFL.

I just need to clarify something.

Petty has started 2 NFL games, 1 of which he has won.  Hackenberg hasn't played a snap of real NFL football.  But you want to replace them with Mike Glennon, who is probably going to be no better than Matt Flynn or Matt Cassell was after everyone thought they were the next big thin, or Tyrod Taylor?

I am glad you are not making decisions at HO....no offense.
