  1. 1. What do you want the Jets to do week 17?

    • Win, and most likely hand Rex Ryan a loss in his final game as a head coach.
      44
    • Tank it for a draft pick.
      27

Jets fans will have an interesting quandary in Week 17.

I don't think winning is an option. I mean, we've been trying but at this point, its worthless even if Brady was on the Jets team. No one can save this ship and I hope the only ship that sinks is Bowles'.

If we can close out the year with a decent performance against NE and beat the Bills it should be enough to set Petty up as starter for 2017. Also we should be able to find out if Fitz is actually able to help Petty, and if so he would make a good backup for next year, but not at starter money.

Jets have enough needs so a slight change in draft position shouldn't hurt us. Its way more valuable to be able to evaluate Petty's improvement/coach-ability etc.

Bills game should be good ie division rivalry, vs ex old HC, new QB, Bowles trying to save job.

If Bryce Petty plays poorly we have some serious off season considerations to make. 

We could seriously not have 1 decent QB on the roster. 

Lets hope for the best.

What did you do with the real joewilly12 ?

My feelings are known no sense in arguing the same old same old day in and day out trying to get others to believe. 

The proof happens on game days and it becomes the truth no need for me to preach it any more.

Peace be with you brother Jets fan.

Last thing we want to see is a Cleveland style rebuild, at least we have a something to build on. The strategy of finding 53 NFL caliber players in the draft by trading down doesn't work. Cleveland [arguably] went 2/14 in this years draft, if they miss next as badly could almost kill the franchise similar to how 76ers have f'd themselves in the NBA. 

And at least our owner may be going to London in a political role wheres the Browns owner may want to go to avoid jail time.

I'm in a quandary about what to do with my tickets to that game.

I'm leaning towards giving them away if anyone in my circle of friends will take them.

I am hoping when I offer they will not look at it as an insult.

lol

if the jets get blown out by the pats* , that game could get real ugly real fast.

This is a tough one because it's more about Bowles than Ryan.

We clinched last place in the division, so the Bills can't get a better pick than us.  Winning would embarrass Rex, would feel good, send a bit of positivity towards the new year, and get Petty his second W and some heat off his back in the offseason.

On the other hand, a part of me knows that Todd Bowles has lost control of the team and isn't going to be the guy to lead us to glory.  If the Jets rally and play a spirited contest it will send a signal to Woody Johnson to keep him around for another year.

So the question really asks if we want Todd Bowles back.  I don't know if I do.

SAR I

it's not tough because no matter what i think the team is going to play the way they want.  but you are right.  these last few games are just as much about bowles job as much as the players. the thing is the way this team has been playing of late it's hard to see how bowles turns this around even next season.

This game being on Christmas Eve is not good as far as I'm concerned with the way we are playing. 

Jets fans have endured so much over the years this game and the Bills game could be the icing and the cherry on the cake for the 2016 season.

You mean the final nail in the coffin.

Ya LOSE. Obviously.
But once again, and I keep saying this, there is no tanking in the NFL. The only semblance of 'tanking' is playing young players to see what they can do. Every player will play hard, they are all playing for their next contract- including the coach. At the very least, the vets who don't have much incentive to try hard, also don't really care about how high we draft next year. And the majority of vets have pride in their play. 
So simply put- the young Jet players will all play hard. And I hope they do well. In a losing effort. 

I don't think the vets, Richardson and Wilkerson got that memo. They quit a while ago

I think Rex is gone regardless. 

However, if Pegula makes his job contingent on beating the Jets in week 17, I would think there are quite a few Jets fans who would want to stick it to him.

If that were the case I'd want him to win and stay in the division. One less opponent to worry about once we straighten our sh*t out.

Lol. If we close out the year,lmao! The Cheaters have lost like 2 games at home in the regular season for like 5 years. The Bills will beat us by at least 17 points in the finale, Jets finish 4-12, book it!

I can't wait to see four down territory all game long and fake punts and field goals. Rex always has the best going out of business games. Chances are we lose which would be alright for as far as our draft is concerned but I wouldn't hate sweeping them. Win/win.

I've pondered this for a while. Originally I thought this was going to come down to us knocking the Bills out of the playoffs and missing out on another quarterback in the draft because of it. This is because every single time we have laughed at Rex's misfortune, he screws us. He screwed us out of Mariota as we laughed at his eminent firing in 2014, and he ****ed us out of the playoffs last year as we laughed at the Bills going down as we knew they inevitably would with Rex.

Now that they're not making the playoffs, (and I think Rex is definitely getting fired) one of two things will happen:

1. We beat Rex, blow each other for a few hours on the forum about it, then sadly come to the realization that we just cost ourselves 2-3 draft slots. When April comes, whatever draft slot we lost lands a quarterback, who inevitably goes on to have success. Marking the third time in 10 years that the Jets played themselves out of a really good quarterback for meaningless December wins. And no, I have no idea who this quarterback will be. But he will exist.

2. We lose to Rex, complain about Bowles for a few hours on the forum about it, there will be no quarterbacks worth drafting that high, and we will draft a cornerback or another DL in April.

That's it. Those are our only too options.

Third option. Bruce Petty lights it up and becomes the QB we been waiting for since Namath. We release him and play Hackenburgh because Big Macc is smarter than everyone else. Petty go's on to win 4 Superbowls in Cleveland and Hackenburgh turns out worse than expected. Come on dude. Stop with the negativity.

I was all excited about the part where we get to blow each other, then you ruined it.

Yes. And I'm sure this is the point in the conversation where your average draft blog reader decides to flex their blog reading muscles and explain how this isn't a QB rich draft because Walterfootball says so and there will be nobody worth taking that high, despite the fact that it's December and the draft process hasn't even started yet. We're all experts. I get it.

What I'm saying is none of that matters. If we're drafting high enough, there won't be any quarterbacks worth taking. If we aren't drafting high enough, there will be. That's how rooting for this godforsaken franchise works. We are stuck on the Nostromo until we die and the sooner you schlimazels get that through your thick skulls the better off we'll be.

And who wants to 'tank' when we have a young QB trying to gain some experience? I'm much rather have Petty go out, play like an NFL starter, hand Rex a loss, and pick #5 instead of #4.

And it still feels good to win!  I agree with you Shuler82
