Jabrill Peppers has not been good at all for them.  TEs should get some looks today.

Really?

Havent seen them play yet, but saw a few highlights from him.

Figured he was playing pretty well

If we win we'll be 3-2. And after next week we'll be 3-3. Don't count Cleveland out they're a very hungry team. And like many young teams they don't know how to win and don't expect to lose. Like the Jets they work hard in practice and probably think they're a good team and they do have a lot of talent. If the Jets don't give 100% that's an L. Any win in the NFL a team has to be mentally ready. I mean NEP could lose to Cleveland if not prepared. The Browns could blow them out. But you know they are always prepared. Just hope we are. We win by 7.

I agree we need to not look past Cleveland but the way the patriots have looked recently, I’m not writing in the patriots as an automatic win in OUR house

Watched a lot of CLE this week and saw him get beat quite a few times and no impact plays on defense.  Took a peek at PFF and think he’s somewhere in the 30’s.

We're bare at outside rushers. Donahue, Martin and Ealy are all out that means it's gonna be Bass and Jenkins, with higher snap counts than they're used to. Couple that with 2 of our top 4 corners being out and I don't know if we can role for 60 minutes. It'll be nice if Derrick Jones and play effectively tho.

He's rank like 80th out of 83 eligible safeties.

I hope you're right. But I don't think we can match their offense. It looks like we're at max a 20 point team and New England can easily put up 30 plus. I also don't think our D can handle Brady. He is too experienced for them and his numbers are impressive.

Boy, I am out of it.  How does fox get an AFC game?

Because of a practice called "cross-flexing," which the league created a few years ago. It allows up to seven games a season that would ordinarily be aired on CBS or Fox to be aired on the opposite network.

The aim is to put the most compelling games in front of the largest possible audience especially in a week where one network has all the most intriguing games.

An extra twist this season is that the Jets and Giants go head to head at 1 o'clock several times, including today. The Jets were supposed to suck, so this was allowing one of the networks to get a 1 o'clock or 4 o'clock game of more substance and protect ratings and thus ad dollars in the biggest NFL market

Giants are home to an AFC opponent, therefore the game is on CBS.  Jets and Giants both play the early game, so our game was flexed to Fox so both could be televised in NY market.

Hoping McGuire continues to look the part.

With Kamara on a bye & Smallwood out Elijah McGuire becomes Jetsters flex in fantasy this week. Jets will run the ball 35 times today.

The Browns have a 2nd round QB that looks competent, is learning and growing every week and with really bad weapons and no running game. 

The Jets 2nd round pick QB is on his second redshirt year and will be inactive. 

8 ints so far is competence? Yikes

The road team is what determines who broadcasts. Giants are playing the Chargers. One of the two games needed to move.

They used to keep the Giants and Jets from playing at the same time. Looks like they gave that up this year

If Kizer was a jet, the billboards would already be up

As long as the net result is the Jets wining this game it's well within the parameters of the game thread. 

If McCown has to sit and Petty comes in and lights things up, that would be the absolute best-case scenario and I'd be all-in for winning every game.  But this constraint of having to root for them to win with McCown starting is wearing on me.

Are you watching the games or just looking at the stats. Half of those have bounced off of receivers hands. He also is the league leader in yards lost due to receivers. So don’t look at the stats.

With the injuries to 3 edge rushers & 2 CBs, this is a good test for the Jets depth. With the lack of weapons for Kizer, Brooks becomes a really important role player as him & Maye are tweener safeties. Excited to see how the defend & having so much versatility at safety will make it hard for the Browns & Hue Jackson to get big pass plays on 1st down putting them in 2nd & 10s. Browns throw the ball 50% so far on 1st down trying to protect Kizer. Having safeties who can cover & stick their noses in on the running game makes it much tougher for Browns to take advantage of a smaller secondary. 

Its gonna be whether we win or not today. So, for all you so called Jet fans moaning about safeties, this is the week this group helps us win a game on the road.

I’d rather the Jets be trying to see what they had in a young QB than trotting out a terrible veteran. But that’s just me. 

Carl right you are, I blame this all on Todd Bowles. 

McCown probably lights up the Browns today.

That's not the point 

The point is this fan base has no patience and would have already turned on Kizer. 

And McCown hasn't been terrible by any measure that's just flat out wrong

There’s a good chunk of his fan base that knows better. And I’m glad McCown has been able to feast on two terrible teams to make himself look better but we all know what he is. A loser and a below average QB.

The Petty injury played into the McCown decision. McCown has been adaquit so far and in my opinion done nothing to warrant losing his job.

Doesn't matter. The billboards go up, the tabloid media goes for the kill, sports radio is all about the Jets drafted the wrong QB, the kid gets ruined. 

This is the last place a young QB has any chance to grow. 

McCown has his issues, his track record is what it is,  but I think bates and Morton have him playing pretty good.
