  1. That would be the sign of a GM who just wants PR and not building a winning team. Who trades for a guy they only keep for 9 games? And what constitutes good or bad? I mean Harvin has what, 22 receptions this year and people are complaining he isn't having a good season. Last time I checked, Decker has what, 24 receptions and injury issues. So would the Jets cut him or trade him? Probably not, but Harvin has played 6 regular season games for Seattle and that's what they did to him. The idea is for Harvin to be on the team next season and he probably will make $10 million or close to it. If Harvin goes on having a similar season as he's had and Decker goes on like he has, why would Harvin take less money than Decker makes? I just think Jets fans live in a fantasy land where Harvin plays well and then renegotiates for no guaranteed money and $4 million a year. Yeah ok. The other scenario is the Jets cut him after the season, a season where they could go 6-3 from here on out and finish 7-9. So what was the point in trading for Harvin for 9 games on a losing team?
  2. This makes no sense at all. If Harvin plays well, what world do people live in where he accepts less money?
  3. That's a weak argument. Patterson never played all preseason because he was injured, not because he went nuts. And wow. a guy who missed more games than he's played over a 9 year career is inured again. Sorry but Patterson was just a dumb move and using the "he went nuts" excuse is a lame argument. Patterson was a bad signing and people just can't admit that for some reason and try to blame it on him going nuts. McDougle missed all of last year and was a 3rd round pick, who counts on that kind of guy to be your starting CB? And Milliner was injured last year and stunk for most of the season. So yeah, coming into the season hoping that those guys were going to be the ones starting, sorry but that's just a stupid GM.
  4. The Cowboys have spent the past few seasons drafting OL in the first round and the guys turned out to be decent players. The Jets drafted crap for the most part and the OL they did draft aren't very good. Plus they have a QB who can throw 30 TDs in a season. Yeah he seems to choke, as do the Cowboys, but the Cowboys lost games last year because the defense stunk, not the offense. I mean they lost a game after the offense put up like 45 points. So who thought the Cowboys offense was no good? Nobody. It was the defense that sucked.
  5. Marvin Lewis was the DC when Billick won a super bowl with the Ravens. And Harbaugh won a SB with the Ravens after Rex was out of Baltimore and the NYJ HC. So the truth is when Rex as DC or HC, he's never even gotten to a super bowl.
  6. You do realize they were blown out 6 times last season and really got two gift wins. This season they didn't get a gift win yet so Sometimes you get lucky and some idiot pushes the QB out of bounds 10 seconds after he's out of bounds and sometimes a player leaves the QB alone and there is no penalty and the Jets lose. Plus, Idzik pretty much failed at drafting players, failed at signing free agents and never wound up fixing huge problems. I don't think they will finish 2-14 like many people do, but 5-11 or 6-10 is what this team is and what they really were last season. The problem is Idzik hasn't done anything to improve the team and the young talent is pretty much a disaster so far besides one guy. Amaro has potential as does Pryor, but when you have a ton of draft picks and a ton of money and wind up with mostly bad talent or guys who can't even make the team or stay healthy, it's a disaster waiting to happen.
  7. The Pats cheated, got away with it, and it helped them win super bowls. And the NFL covered it up and destroyed the tapes. Nobody destroys tapes unless they are hiding something. It really is that simple. But the Pats have been to multiple super bowls since, been to many AFC Championship games and won plenty of division titles. So yeah they haven't won a super bowl since, but it's not like Peyton Manning has won 10 super bowls since 2004 or Aaron Rodgers wins every year either. It is what it is, but it is odd that people ignore the fact Mangini was a part of the cheating Patriot organization and people welcomed him with open arms in NY when he became HC.
  8. it is BS because the Patriots and Broncos are both younger than the Jets and yet still have QBs close to 40 years old. The Chargers and Colts are close to the Raiders in age and yet have QBs that are battling for the MVP. And the Chargers QB isn't young either. And the Rams and Jags are the youngest teams in the NFL and stink while the Raiders are the oldest and still stink. So yeah the Jets "youth" will get better as the season goes on, but somehow the Broncos, Pats, Chiefs, Browns, Bills, etc won't? All those teams are younger than the Jets. The BS is the fact that age doesn't make a team win or lose, it's the players on the team.
  9. What is this BS about young teams. Every team is young in the NFL now. The youngest team (Rams) is like 25 years old or something and the oldest is the Raiders at like 27.5 years avg age. So the excuse that "young teams" will get better as the season goes on goes for every damn team in the NFL now, not just the Jets.
  10. It's not just about the QB. The Seahawks were terrible at finding a QB until Wilson beat out Matt Flynn. But they spend a lot of time trading for, signing, etc that "right" QB. But they were also building a good team. Idzik and the Jets so far aren't building anything so even if they get lucky next year and wind up with some great QB in the 3rd round, the team still stinks. And we hope the young guys get better, but so far most of Idziks' picks and signings have not been something where you can say "next year he will find some great players" and those guys will contribute as soon as possible.
  11. The guy had 41 TDs a few seasons back, has thrown for over 4500 yards over the past few years, had 29 TDs last year, yeah Geno dreams of having those numbers.
  12. Most of the picks in Seattle were because of Pete Carroll. The GM was more the money guy compared to the guy picking the players. The truth is, Pete was hired first, and then he had a hand in picking the GM and had control of players being picked. The Jets don't seem to want Rex to have anything to do with picking the players, they want Idzik and his staff doing that. Which means Seattle and the Jets are nothing alike in the way they are building a team.
  13. Direct TV Jets vs Raiders game is blacked out for me.
  14. When you go 18-1, it's more than just the QB. When you go 11-5 with a backup QB, it's not just Brady. And it wasn't like Brady was great his first postseason. The Pats first super bowl run was won because they played great defense, not because Brady was great. He wasn't even as good as Sanchez in all honesty. But the Pats defense created turnovers and held one of the best offenses to 17 points. And their kicker made a huge kick in snow and another 48 yarder to win a super bowl. If Adam has one of those "wide left" moments, is Brady more like Kelly than Brady? Brady deserves a lot of credit for being great over the years, but lets be honest, he wasn't the HOF QB everybody thinks of him now those first few years. I can't stand BB, but when you win something like 12 Division titles in 14 years, go 11-5 with a backup QB, the guy is obviously doing something right. And people make Rex out to be some kind of hero because he went to back to back AFC Championship games. The Pats have been to 3 straight AFC Championship games, was in a super bowl and came close to winning it, etc. So if the Pats have nobody but Brady, that's some pretty damn impressive coaching.
  15. It's $199 and you can use it on phones, tablets, computers, certain gaming devices. Sucks it's not on Roku or Fire TV, but oh well. I can just use my chromecast. But you don't get Redzone and Fantasy stuff with that price. The $299 or $350 bucks or whatever are just not worth it to me. For 150 bucks more you get Redzone and some Fantasy shows. Redzone is cool, but not for 150 bucks more.
  16. I'm wondering if this is like the Roddy White ankle issue last year. Lets hope not.
  17. His defense does help him and Lynch is a great help, but lets not act like Lynch is AP and rushed for over 2000 yards. The Jets had about the same kind of combined rushing attack as the Seahawks last season, but it sure didn't help Geno throw TDs or be any good most of the season.
  18. The problem with this entire theory is the Seahawks also made Manning and guys like Decker look like crap as well. If you go by the way Decker played against Seattle, he sucks. If you go by the way Manning played in the Super Bowl, you would have never thought he had 55 TD passes last season. But lets ignore that fact. They played in Seattle. Seattle rarely loses at home and usually dominates. And we all know the Packers stink. Last season they were horrible when Rodgers went down. But we also know the Jets are 7-17 on the road under Rex the last few years. They were 2-6 last year and pretty much sucked as a road team. And the Jets rarely seem to win back to back games under Rex. So until we go out and think the Jets will go into Green Bay and blow them out, they need to beat the Raiders first, and they need to actually become a consistent team who can win on the road. Because the reality is the Jets have been a terrible road team for three years. A lot of that has to do with Rex.
  19. They scored like 26+ points a game last year, they scored over 40 points in the Super Bowl. They scored 36 points tonight. They have a balanced attack and a QB who can throw TDs. Wilson has 52 TDs and 19 INTs in his first two seasons in the NFL. Think about that for a moment. When your QB averages 26 TDs a year and only throws about 9 INTs, thats a pretty damn good QB. That's not just a guy managing the game. Yeah he doesn't need to be Rodgers or Manning or Brady. But any QB who has 52 TDS passing in his first two seasons is pretty damn good. Dismissing that is ridiculous. It's one thing if Wilson had 15 TDs and 10 INTs and just had to manage games. It's another story when a young QB has played better than many veteran QBs.
  20. The Packers look bad, but then again the Broncos and Manning looked bad against the Seahawks in the Super Bowl. The Seahawks were the best team in the NFL last year, are supposed to be great again this year, and are playing at home. You know, Seattle is a team who hardly ever loses at home and usually dominate teams at home. The Jets should have a shot because the Packers are just Rodgers and a bunch of scrubs. They proved that last season when he was out. But assuming the Jets should have an easy time in Green Bay is a bit absurd. Especially considering they jets went 2-6 on the road last year and have stunk the last 3 seasons on the road. Something like 7-17 over 3 seasons.
  21. If ground and pound means scoring 36 points, it doesn't really matter what you call it. When ground and pound means you need to win 13-10, it doesn't usually work. And thats how the Jets have been using the ground and pound for years. Win 13-10. It's also why thy struggle to be a 8-8 team every year and the Seahawks just won a super bowl. The Seahawks have talent all over the place.
  22. The entire argument about the QB only works if Vick was given a chance to start. He never was, so he's really a $5 million backup QB. A backup QB that is injury prone. Yeah if Geno stinks it up, Vick should come in. But what's more likely to happen is Geno struggles, but doesn't have some 5 INT game. So he keeps starting, keeps playing, but even a 15 TD and 20 INT season isn't going to get him benched. So signing the best QB available is kind of a joke when you consider he signed a backup QB for $5 million bucks. And as some have said, the Jets aren't winning it all this year anyway, so what is really the point of a 34 year old injury prone backup QB for one season?
  23. this is kind of depressing, but true. The Rams have been the young up and coming team for years and they just never seem to get over the hump. And Bradford might never be some great QB, but he had his moments. He's also injury prone. I really hope the Jets don't fall into the category of young and up and coming who never really become anything. And Geno needs to improve a lot to just become like Bradford. And Bradford wasn't that great.
  24. He took over a Jets team who was 9th in the league in offense and they went 9-7 after Mangini and crew choked away an 8-3 start. And Favre was injured. So yeah there was no Favre and they pushed to draft and start Sanchez, but people act like he took over a 4-12 team. The Jets were an 8-3 team the season before and looked like a team rolling into the playoffs. And then it all collapsed. But to say Rex took over one of the worst teams and offense in the NFL is ridiculous.
