### Jets \ Browns -- (Let's Get Over .500) Game Thread ###

Two things:

1) Understand and sympathize with the POV, but the game thread in week 5 isn’t the place to openly root for the Jets to lose. Freedom of speech does not exist in @Maxman‘s Jet Nation. We are all about teh censorship.

2) Just hold onto the hope that, despite the preseason and early season rankings, that the best QB in the draft isn’t among the first 2-3 QBs taken, and that we get lucky enough to end up with this year’s Prescott, Wilson, (Derek) Carr, Roethlisberger, etc.

Once we’re way out of mathematical contention, and if it’s the last game of the year with the top QB pick on the line with the Jets at 3-12 after dropping 10 in a row, then we might be coaxed into loosening up the rules a little.

Rules are for fools

Look, Max. 

No one is questioning your authority here. You are the admin of this great forum ...but c'mon.. some of us are actually really valued posters here and we simply have a different out look. Can't it be viewed as just any other opinion that has lasted around here for some lengthy amount of time. Been here since 13' and there have been so many times where us, the fans have been divided by opinion difference on Geno...Sanchez...Rex..etc and it hasn't resulted in a ban. Why now, why this and why so dictating with the subject. I'm not here to tell you how to do anything. I'm enjoying a product of your hard work and creation... I'm just not understanding the harshness..annoyed or not.

Where's the discipline for the fans who say others aren't real fans just because they have a different viewpoint? Because, that is a personal attack.

Trust me when I say this - it kills me to want the Jets to lose.  Look forward to 3-12. Until then you have my respect on the game thread. (Biting my thumb).

Ok but not only MY opinion. It's the opinion of half the posters on this board. We are tired of this viscous cycle and we want the 2nd coming of Joe Namath- not the 2nd coming of Babe Parelli. Regardless I bleed GREEN. 

I'm all for the tank but still I wouldn't describe the Jets lack of success as "having a thick or sticky consistency"

Yeah, not going to lie..that sh*t hits the chest hard when you know how passionate you are about a team. Especially passionate enough to want them to lose for a better future.

Um, are you sure you’re responding to the correct post?

Good grief.

Ummmm sorry about that!!! :(

 

My post wss obviously hijacked by my iPhone!!!! 

I wa asking a question to a poster who was saying it is easy to Tank   I am not sure what how the Jets are supposed to Tank; they already have one of the youngest and least experienced offenses in the entire NFL; with one of the worst starting QBs over the last 7 years.

There is no general rule against wishing for a high draft pick (and what has to happen to reach that end point).

The request is simple and narrow: keep it out of the game thread.

Rule seems clear enough for me. There are thousands of other threads where you can root against the Jets. The game thread is the only thread where actively rooting against the team isn't allowed.

LOL.

Watching the end of the game, getting 4 emails of notifications with reported posts. Shouldn't be that way. The Jets won, they are not getting the first pick.

I was laughed at all offseason for saying the Jets wouldn't have a top 5 pick. I was laughed at for saying the Jets defense could win 6 games alone.

Now that is is happening and people are surprised. All they had to do is read my posts and they would have known how this was going to play out.  :)

Yes, you were right. I didn't expect us to be 3-2 and playing for first place in the division next week. I don't think this success is gonna last, but who the **** knows. The only thing we can say for certain is that this season across the league has been all around unpredictable and wacky. I mean, what happened to the Steelers? What the **** is up with the Jags?

It's like this whole season exists within the mind of Gary Busey. Nothing makes sense, and everything is scary.

Word. Playing for first place next week is about as climactic as our symbolic mid-80's Cold War era propaganda fluff!

I'll be cheering there next week and have 2 extra for those interested 

 

Now to score some Yankee Tix and witness the Sunday Sweep of NY over Cleveland!

Let's Go Mets

Real fans wouldn’t have that ridiculous avatar picture you put up there.

A real fan would have one more like...mine.

That's real classy there, Spermy, kicking a broken man right in the vagina.

i still didnt get an answer what else you want them to do in order to tank

they gut the team

they let a QB who was 2-22 the last few years to start

they have an awful coach

 

what else do you want them to do??

Look.  I'm not actively rooting for the team to lose.  That has always been my stance.  I know that football players do not "tank". My anger and frustration stems from the decision to play McCown and game manager our way to eeking out ugly wins. I have said from day one that this type of situation and attitude is the only one that would drive me insane, and it has.  This was supposed to be a "competitive rebuild".  Guys like ArDarius Stewart shouldn't be getting limited reps behind Jeremy Kerley.  It shouldn't have taken an injury for Forte to not be the featured back here over a committee of him Powell and McGuire.  We shouldn't be playing a 38 year old never-was at QB because the coach thinks that he "gives us the best chance to win right now".  If Petty and Hackenberg were throwing the ball 25-30 times a game, behind a committee of young backs in the run game, to the plethora of young WRs we have and winning games here and there, I would have absolutely no issues.  Instead we're watching McCown doing his best not to f*ck up and cost us like we're a playoff bound team, ala Alex Smith.  We aren't a playoff team.  My gut says New England is going to do a great job of showing us that next week.  I wanted the young guys to come out guns blazing, throwing a ton, for better or worse,  and either give us a reason to build around them, or flame out and give us the definitive answer as to whether or not we need to do everything to get a young guy in the draft next year.  

What we're doing right now is not how you do a rebuild a bad football team. This is how you get stuck in a perpetual wheel of mediocrity because you're too afraid to take a chance and find the guy who can, ultimately, lead your franchise for the next 10+ years.  I'm sorry if this line of thinking puts a damper on the fact that we're 3-2 but when it's all said and done, we're going to be left scratching our heads come draft day when all the other teams ahead of us (or those that trade up ahead of us) all get their guy, and those same people who are stoked about McCown and the record right now will be b*tching that we don't have a franchise QB so why are we drafting an OL, CB, LB, DE, WR in the first when we have such a glaring need.

You don't have to outright root for them to loose.  They score a td and what?  You're booing?  C'mon, we can't do that here.  I understand the tanking.  This is supposed to be a really bad year for us.  I accepted that and expected many losses (which is till a strong possibility).  The difference for me is that if the Jets loose, I probably won't be as dissapointed as i normally am after a loss because I can look ahead to the future.  But when the whistle blows, we go out there and root for success.  Let the chips fall where they may.  None of these prospects are Peyton or Luck (not that he's done anything yet). 

This is, more or less, how I approach game day.  I didn't f*cking boo that ASJ and Kearse caught TDs.  I just wondered to myself why the hell McCown was the one tossing them.

I agree to a certain point. But you're acting like because the Jets are 3-2 in early October they have no shot now of getting a QB next year. There are so many variables I think you are overlooking. The Jets could finish with the 10th pick and someone could fall to us, or we could trade up. Or we could not win another game the rest of the season after this game and being in a good spot to draft a top college QB. Or we could be targeting someone in FA like Garapolo. There is so much that can happen still.

And to counter all of this, I'd say that this is nothing but wishful thinking because those of us who have paid close attention to the draft prospects don't believe that teams who need QBs are going to pass on guys like the one's we love.  Then we'll be left with the ugly step sister that nobody else wanted and we'll be stuck with a 5 year commitment to them because that's what happens when you draft a first round QB.

I am a huge fan of Mason Rudolph.  That being said, I don't want to touch him with a 1st round pick.  Guess what we're probably going to have to do when Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold (if he declares), and Falk all go to the teams ahead of us?  You aren't just kissing the great prospects goodbye for this year, you're kissing away the top prospects for the next 5 years.
