  1. Having been through 2 rehabs around 20 years ago, I can honestly say that the success of these programs are only as good as the motives you go in with. My first stint was forced upon me if I wanted to continue my college career. Didn't think I belonged there and after finishing my month and being reinstated went back to what I enjoyed(just more secretively). Second time was at the behest of my ex and again, just doing it to get people off my back. Again, went back to my old ways and, the marriage ended. The day my ex moved out, I realized how many people I had hurt through my addiction and in

  2. Yeah, the guy who sat on his couch for five months until being offered a one-year deal by a team that recently suffered injuries to both starting guards is really making us eat some crow.

  5. The Jets didn't have a top 10 defense last year. 15th against the run and 10th against the pass according to FootballOutisders, hardly the standard Ryan has consistently brought as a coach.

  6. I don't think Mark has won anything yet. I think that's waaaaaaaaaaay overstating things. It's still early. That said, I agree with the rest of what you have said. Sanchez should start the season, take whatever pounding is necessary until the OL gels, give Geno time to really get comfortable in the NFL, solidify his footwork, command in the huddle, his ability to read Ds, learn the offense, etc., then bring him in at some point following the 5th -6th game of the season. It would be absolutely foolish imo to start Geno now just because we're tired of seeing Sanchez. That would be taking a

  7. This. It's 100% right to start the incumbent in the first preseason game. Not a lot to read into here. Wouldn't be surprised if Geno starts the second game. If Mark gets the nod again, then -maybe- we can start to assume that Mark is in the lead. But it's the guy who starts the third preseason game that's gonna start the regular season.

  9. On the Hill TD, it was the last play of the scrimmage, with Hill running alone against a guy who's fighting to be the 6th corner, with no safety help over the top. It was not dissimilar to when teams allow the Make-a-Wish kid to take a handoff and score a TD in practice.

  11. There is every reason to believe Mike Goodson is in Rehab. The team knows where he is, and have no problem with it. They do not talk about it, since as his employer it is illegal to do so. The media is also quiet about this, there are no “where is he” investigations. Mike Goodson of the New York Jets is just not that big, so there is no money in it for gossip tabloids who are willing to pay reporters and paparazzi. While a bona fide journalist has protection under the constitution, as interpreted by the courts, from the non-disclosure laws, the person who leaks a story or provides information

  12. I'd have to look it up, I believe LionelRichie (poster) had asked whether the Jets would retain Mark Sanchez if he could be cut without penalty. Under that scenario the team wouldn't be paying him $8M, and under that scenario, I answered the way I did. A lot of the angst for Sanchez is the money he is tying up...that amount has forced the team into gifting him the starter role...which in turn has made him into one of the league's worst QBs. We have HAD to start him because like it or not, he HAS been the best QB on our roster for the last 4 years, and at his salary looking for a replacem

  14. I hope my response won't be seen as a cop-out, but I actually think that all of you guys have good points. I understand where GL is coming from, don't think he had an agenda, and do think the D was pretty good. By the same token, I agree with others of you that imo the D was not really a top 10 D. How many times on 3rd and 17 did they give up first downs? Do top 10 Ds usually do that? No. I also agree that many factors can influence how a team plays in a game or vs a particular opponent (weather, injuries, matchups, field position, etc.). The fact that it was almost a guarantee that San

  15. We're boo'ing Sanchez because of his last 32 games and because he's the buttfumble guy, NOT because he's still throwing rookie-type INT's in a green & white scrimmage game. Cromartie doesn't want us there because we are expressing our displeasure as fans who support the team? Ok, then simply just don't go to any games that Sanchez is the starter just like Cro said.........I bet Sanchez is benched shortly after.

  16. Not necessarily, but even if it is, it doesn't mean that Geno should start over Sanchez. I get it. You're sick of Sanchez and thinking with your heart, but Jets fans need to think with our heads. We need to think about the long term and not the short term. Barring a major miracle and divine intervention, Sanchez will be gone and no longer a Jet next year. Geno could be the long awaited franchise QB we've been needing. It would be criminally stupid to rush Geno into the starting lineup and risk ruining him just because we were impatient and didn't want to have to see Sanchez any more. We

  18. I agree that he's earned a pink slip and sucks. I was speaking more in terms of a general policy of showing respect to veterans and making rookies work for a starting spot. Even with Sanchez sucking, I'd rather him take the beating from Suh, Ansah and Fairley than Geno and during the first 4-5 games of the season. IMO they have to go about it in that way. If Geno were to start and suck, what would they do then? They couldn't go back to Sanchez and most don't think McElroy is the answer. If they start Sanchez and the team sucks and is out of the playoff hunt early, then there's no pres

  20. it's ironic that all the people who hate Sanchez want the Jets to ruin Geno the same way by giving him a job he didn't earn. Mark should have had real competition before year 5 and Geno should win the job outright, not be given it. no more giving people jobs.

  24. I'm not sure what the problem is other than this board being full of size queens. Wouldn't you prefer Wilson right up on Gronkowski to watching Pace flail his arms from 11 yards away? Sure Wilson is going to get muscled by TEs sometimes, but I think the idea is to have him play FS out in space where we want him to cover ground and break on the ball. Personally I like Trufant in the slot but he is coming off the ACL IIRC. Lankster too. Against the pass our best set might be with Wilson @ FS, Landry SS, with Trufant or Lankster in the slot and Milliner and Cro outside. The idea is to get t

  26. This is true, but he was mocked for puking all over himself, having to go to the hospital because he was so drunk, possibility of going to jail, and losing your million dollar job. All this in one nightmare night. I think this is enough to cause a person to reevaluate his life and the path he is following.

  30. hahaa...Why you mad, brah? Serious question. Are you more upset that: (1) Sanchez is on our team, (2) He's soaking up so much cap space, or (3) he's under performing? If it's #1: For all intents and purposes, he's a great teammate. He's the first player in, the last guy out. He's a tireless worker and goes out of his way to take on the role of being a New York quarterback. Before last year, he displayed that he could improve from season to season, and has been developing his professional skills, both on the clock and on his own dime. If it's #2: You're allocating your anger

  34. Suspect that it's more than a trend. This is a problem with football stats. Defense is not by itself in a vacuum. How a game is coached and played is dictated by how great or awful your opponent is, and especially if their offense can score points. Football stats are helpful only to a point. And if you have a very good QB or a defense that gets to the QB, the rest of your team is much less critical. When Ryan babbled about how great a pass defense the Jets had last year he should've had his fat mouth filled with pigs feet. It was crap. No one bothered to pass against the Jets because they woul

  35. So I'm going to have to retract some of my tone. I was going back and forth between this and 'the other' board today and all of those comments were said (some paraphrased) over there. This place is a lot more rational for the most part. So to that extent, mea culpa. But in fairness, RSJ did leave this gem later in this same thread: "Did you ever take into consideration that Sanchez threw that TD to a first team WR, going against the second team defense? " Unless we're figuring out whether every pass both QBs threw was against which defense, this is sort of the thing I was refer

  37. Sounds great in theory, but bit is amongst the very last people on this entire board who has any room to judge anyone else when it comes to such things. There is no one more notorious for blatantly distorting the facts and ignoring any points that don't support his position, to the point of even regularly deleting things out of posts he quotes to which he has no counter. The reality is he's against Geno because Geno was an Idzik pick and he dislikes Idzik because Idzik traded away Revis. Besides, considering most of the reports about Sanchez from the scrimmage revolved around his INT and

  39. I don't really agree. His problem appears to be getting his head around. At S he'd be facing the ball and he looks decent in zone to me. I think he'd be a good part time S to use against pass happy teams. The other guys we have are mainly in the box guys. Seems more like an indictment of Bush than anything else.
