  1. I just want to get this off my chest, because this game sealed it for me. If the Jets fire Rex Ryan, I will stop caring about this team. Without Revis, Holmes, Pouha, Ellis, and literally down to a 3rd string UDFA, a fullback, and a QB at the running back position, and we were still not only competed, but should have won that game. Under Mangini or Edwards or anyone else, this game is a laugher. Now Im brutally pissed that Sparano sat on the ball when we could have ended the game, that the ref invented a pi call on a play he couldn't see... And that we lost a game we should have won. Tom Brady managed a grand total of 20 points on four scoring drives. The Jets offense scored 26 points. Give him a good QB, and that man is going to win a Super Bowl. I hope our owner gives him that chance.

  2. 2 Parts Grey Goose Cherry Noir 1 part Ginger Infused Simple Syrup ( 1 Cup Water, 2 Cups Sugar. Grate 1/2 cup Fresh Ginger. Put 1 cup water to boil, when water comes to rolling boil Dissolve 2 cups Sugar and grated ginger. boil for four minutes. Strain Ginger and mixture into a bottle, refrigerate) Muddle Cilantro, Lemon and Lime Wedges and a dash of Red Pepper Flakes ( Because Mark Sanchez fumbling with the AFCEAST lead on the line burns so much) Shake vigourously in shaker and pour over ice in Highball glass. VOILA The Mark Sanchez Fumble Forgetter! I created this drink after witnessing the Pivotal matchup between us and the hated Rivals. We couldve won this game but Sporano is a dumb ass and Im sick of watching our conservative style of Play. **** you Stephen Hill, and **** you refs for that abyssal PI call from 40 yards away. Hopefully this drink gets you lot through the night. Im already drunk as sh*t from them and its all seemingly disappearing for now.

  5. I will probably get killed for this post after such a bad loss, which I literally thought about all night and made it hard to wake up this morning, but I do not think this season is over. I know the pessimism is high on this board right now about everything from Sanchez to Rex but this team has shown some heart. Everytime they are given no chance they stick around and make it a game. I think the Jets are far from out of it. They have showed time and time again that they will not quit and they can stick around with some of the better teams in the league. You take out 1 of the 4 major mistakes this team made yesterday and this is a W. I know you can't go back and change it and there is no such thing as moral victories but I still believe in this team possibly making some noise especially with how bad the AFC is this year. 7 out of the next 9 games are winnable so you know we can expect the Jets to lose 1 of them and 2 of them they probably shouldn't win but I have faith they can win 1 of them (hopefully the ****in Pats at home). This team can still finish 10-6 and that will be enough to get in. All you have to do is make it to the playoffs and anything can happen. Sorry for my optimism. I know this loss really hurts, just trying to keep the faith here.

  6. You know, at the beginning of the season I was thinking that Sparano would be a good thing for Sanchez as he will take a lot of pressure off of him and develop a good runnning game for him. I've watched Sanchez in a couple of games this year, and I really don't like what I see (as a Dolphins fan I don't mind). Last night, to name a few problems, he missed a wide open touchdown pass and took so long it floated into the wrong hands. He threw the ball behind Green and when Green looked forward after the catch he was smash into the ground. He set him up to get hurt. Sometimes he throws a nice ball on a rope, but he doesn't seem to have a lot of touch on his passes coming out of the backfield. He's ranked 28th in the NFL in QB efficiency, and Pro Football Focus has him ranked 25th. I'm not a Jets fan, but I do love our rivalry. At this stage in his career Sanchez should be doing much more. I'm seeing him trying really hard and working at being better, but at some point you have to say to yourself, "is this all he's got?" I think it is.

  8. I thought Sparano had 1 bad call, on 3rd and 1 at the 4. Other than that he called an outstanding game. Hill's drop and Sanchez inaccurate throws are not on Sparano. He is a huge upgrade from Schott and with a competent QB Sparano/Rex is a great combination.

  14. The problem is that the evaluation metrics for some people is to say that unless Sanchez was 100% responsible, then he must be 0% responsible. I think you (and many others) are using an extremely flawed sense of logic to suggest that there is direct link between the extent to which Sanchez's share of the blame is being discussed and what share of it he's believed to deserve. As I said earlier, the reason why nobody is spending countless pages talking about the kick return TD, Hill's drop, the game management near the end or anything like that is simple: there's not a person out there arguing that those were acceptable and didn't contribute to the loss. The same cannot be said for the discussion of Sanchez's play. We've officially reached the point where it's expected for the entire team to be perfect at all times around Sanchez in order for a victory to be a possibility and, in some people's minds, if they are not, Sanchez's mistakes are all excused. What that tells you is that now even Sanchez's biggest apologists seem to have realized that he's incapable of helping rally the Jets to victory if everything doesn't go right around him, and so have simply decided that it's ok for that to be the case. Isn't this starting to seem familiar to you yet? We've been here before man and just like last time around, it's time to admit that we know what we have, and it's not ever going to be enough to get where we want this team to go.

  16. LMFAO - so the fans believing in their team and being mildly happy about how competitive a depleted roster is playing against 2 of the better teams in Football is the reason the Jets lose? What you've seen from the Jets the past few weeks should be encouraging. They're playing good ball, just not closing. Fans should be able to be happy with that because well, who are you to tell them different? I'm going to go out on a limb and say, the fans and their attitude toward the team have zero impact on the game.

  17. True up to what? 2011? When he was... 28th in completion %? (btw your awesome example Stafford was 5th...in the NFL) 23rd in passer rating? (Stafford was 5th) 27th in yards per? (Stafford was 13th) Top 5 in INTs? (Stafford had 15 more TDs with 2 less INTs) ???? you are very delusional.

  21. Going into this game, I think roughly 90% of this site expected the Jets to get blown out. I know I thought the 10 point spread might be a little low. But instead, Rex Ryan went into NE with Mark Sanchez at QB, his best players on IR, and forced OT. And it's his fault they lost... ? Coaching was the reason this game was close. Yeah, the Jets missed opportunities, but the vast number of opportunities they missed came down to execution, not play calls. Sanchez played well for most of the game, and ****ed up royally on a couple plays. That's Sanchez, even when he's good he's bad. But calling for Rex's head for sticking with Sanchez? Who is/was he supposed to turn to? Clemens? Brunell? Tebow? McElroy? There's no one to turn to. The problem with this team is personnel. Tannenbaum went all in the year before Rex arrived, bought a couple expensive FAs for Rex, and now most of those expensive players suck (and/or are on IR), and the roster's weak, and the cap is a mess. If any heads roll after this year, I hope it's Tannenbaum's. And then I hope the new GM sees what he has in Rex and agrees to give him a shot. Rex needs to work for a strong football guy. Rex is a smart coach, but he needs a boss who keeps him focused. The right GM can overrule Rex on personnel decisions, and help to mold him into a better head coach. People want to bitch about him, but I really don't think there are a lot of better coaches than him out there right now. There are a ton of guys out there who could do worse, though.

  22. Completely agree with the OP. The buck stops with him yes, but so much of the sh*t that has gone on is our of his control, and the fact remains his specialty (defense) is always at worst, a good unit, despite some pretty glaring weaknesses. I can't really emphasise how good a performance that was defensively. We gave the Patriots, the best offense in the league, very little and everything they got, they earned. We were constantly forcing them to convert 3rd downs. I didn't like the 3 man rush at all, but that was mainly because even with 8 dropping we couldn't ****ing cover Gronk. That would be my only criticism for him on this game, he flat out outcoached BB again, not the first time. The gameplan was perfect, the execution from a select few cost us the game. A coach can't legislate for the drops, the awful flags, the ST return, which I'm chalking up as an aberration considering how great that unit has been. I'd criticize him for sticking with Sanchez, but there's no alternate, and anyone who thinks he was behind the Tebow idea is delusional.

  24. Its the problem with the team and their whole philosophy. He kicked my butt so he has to be good while the GM chimes in "and he knows Parcells". Forget the fact that the guy was replaced in Dallas and his offenses in Miami stunk against everyone else not wearing green for the most part. I still remember the one game they beat they Jets where he called for a 2 point conversion when they were up 30-19 early in the 4th putting the Jets in a position to get 8 and 3 to tie when an extra point means two touchdowns to win. The only reason he did it was because the Jets were dumb enough to try one in the 3rd quarter and he wanted to match the stupidity. He sucks. Schottenheimer was no good but when you fire him you have two options- hire a proven OC or go and take a flier on a bright young talent. Instead they took option 3 which was to take a guy who was awful but had head coaching experience meaning Rex didnt really have to concern himself with that side of the ball.

  25. Rex's lack of caring about the offense is going to be his downfall. The way they call and run the offense is horrific. This has been going on since 2009. The decision to bring in Sparano was insane. This was a guy that wanted to go for 2 up against the Jets when the situation called for 1. Why? Because he had no clue what was going on. 3rd and 1 shotgun on the goal. That is all you need to see and when you are the head coach and this garbage goes on under two guys you have to take the blame. The time management makes Herm Edwards and Dick Curl look like geniuses. Unless Rex takes more of an interest in the other side of the ball hes going to be this generations Wade Phillips, getting a few gigs as a head coach after excelling a DC.

  32. Gift INT, game losing fumble, bad handoff for fumble/safety, ill timed sack, and a handful of other innacurate passes does not fall within the window of near perfect. When was the last time you saw Sanchez throw a pick where you thought, "wow, the DB made a great play on that ball"? I can't think of many.

  35. If we really must be serious it's obvious that Peyton would lead the Jets to the Super Bowl and get sacked on the first play, causing a career ending injury. McElroy would then set a Super Bowl record for INT's thrown and the Jets would get blown out by 40+. See...that was no fun at all.

  36. Come on, let's be serious, this is the Jets we're talking about. Best case scenario would have been a 2008 Favre-esque cock tease that would eventually come all crashing down, with the most likely scenario being a preseason injury that landed Manning on IR.

  38. The good news is nothing to do with the Pats, they will be in the playoffs, they will be competitive with anyone. Because they still have Brady, it's that simple. They'll win probably 8 of the next 9 games and make it with ease. The good news is the Jets look like we can hang. The team has improved so much from that debacle against the 49ers, we're not quitting, that's for sure. And with some winnable games coming up, it's not impossible for us to turn it around. We can beat the Pats at home, and we should.

  40. I don't think anyone here is absolving the defense of anything today. This thread is about how Sanchez sucks. And today he sucked again. If you'd like to start a thread about how the defense has sucked, which they certainly did on numerous occasions today, I think we'd all be happy to chime in with nefarious stories and witty memes.

  44. He's one of the highest paid QB's in the league. He's the 5th overall pick in the NFL draft. He obviously has some kind of skill set to be some sort of NFL QB. Doesn't mean I want him anywhere near starting QB for my team, the Browns.

  45. To be fair, they did make the stop in OT, but the NFL couldn't allow the Patriots to not score any OT points, so they had to call a PI on Kyle Wilson from a block away.

  46. I actually agree, but that bad call was a REALLY bad call at a REALLY bad time. Other than that I have to say, I am happy with most of the playcalling today. It's such a bummer to lose this way especially after that fumbled KR on the 20 with under 2 min left. Just heartbreaking stuff. Sanchez, even when he completes passes, is just not an accurate passer. So many times the plays could have gone for more yardage but the ball placement is way off. And today was a god day for him.... F*ckin Safety! Jeesh!

  48. Id doubt teams had Sanchez ranked in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Just the nature of position usually doesnt allow that to happen. There are plenty of teams that probably assigned him no grade since they had no intention of taking him and its a waste of resources to evaluate a guy like him who wasnt going to come out when the college year began. The other thing is that usually when teams jump way up for a guy other GMs/scouts, etc... will come out and murder the pick, especially after the player proves to be a bust. There were countless articles about teams not even giving Gholston a grade for any round in the draft and there is no reason that would not have happened with Mark by now. Tebow kind of fell it that same category when it was pretty clear only 1 team gave him a first round grade and most had him as a mid-round "he has talent lets see if we can find a spot for him" grade. I think the better question is what was the risk/reward grade most teams would have given him. Similar to the Brady Quinn and Matt Leinart deals. When I think it was Seattle, but it may have been KC, passed on Sanchez there was a legit feeling that if the Browns passed he would fall way down. Would the Browns have taken him if they picked at 8? Would they take him at 15. I still have no issue with the Jets taking him. They had to take a shot eventually at someone. Maybe they should have been more proactive for Ryan the year before and if Woody pushed for it I think they would have done it, but taking a gamble sometimes is necessary. I think the bigger issue is just understanding what went into the Jets thought process. The way it was reported at the time it was as if they watched a workout and fell in love with him. Then I think there was fear that they would not get him if they sat and waited so they may have paid too much (in salary the draft compensation was low for a top 5 pick due to the relationship with Mangini). The bigger issue I have is what happened after that. The contract they gave him was clearly a "protect the franchise" contract. They went 5 rather than 6 and frontloaded a deal to give them a clear out by year 4 if he busted. Their hedge was in that contract. And then this year they blew it all up and extended him essentially locking him into his entire rookie contract. That is what made no sense at all and what tells me either someone else is running the show or Rexs positive nature has completely destroyed any logic that went into the way they run the team.
