  1. Bowles: McCown Starter "Through End of Year"

    Look, I get that this decision is frustrating and makes no sense, I mean the Jets aren't making the payoffs this year so what's the real difference between a possible 6-7 win season other than draft position? But in the grand scheme of things this really means nothing, this is the second offensive regime (Chan and now Morton) to come in and neither one has exactly had glowing things to say about these guys which tells us all we need to know. So what if Petty steps in for 2 or 3 games and plays ok, is that really enough to warrant us not drafting or signing a QB next year? Of course not, once McCown got past week 8 as the starter I pretty much knew it was over or these guys. The coaching staff is thinking about the rest of the offense (WR's, O-Line, RB's) and developing them and pretty much moved on from the possibility of Hack or Petty being the guy. And at this point, while a bit frustrating probably the right move. Don't be mad at Bowles for this, be at Macc for putting Bowles in a position where his best option at QB is a 38 year old journeyman in McCown.
  2. Revis Fan Reaction

    I know he's an all-time great but F Revis. I read a recent article that he admitted to be 20lbs overweight last year. That to me, is unforgivable.
  3. Cousins should be the target

    Agreed, Cousins isn't Brady but I think fans just get way to enamored with the idea of drafting and developing a QB vs. paying a free agent. Unfortunately it looks like the Jets may have won enough games already to knock them out of a top pick and with the holes on this team you'd hate to have to trade away a ton of picks to draft a QB. Signing a FA like Cousins gives us our QB plus 3 picks in the first two rds. to beef up those positions where we desperately need help. Again, it would be ideal to draft your franchise QB b/c you then get to keep that guy under control on a pretty fair salary for the first few years but you risk not being able to build a team around that player due to the fact that you've had to trade away the rest of your draft to get him.
  4. Yep and that in turn is affecting our Guards, not to make excuses but it's no coincidence their play is down this year they are probably greatly compensating for the lack of talent at Center. Johnson could stick around as a decent backup but he cannot be out starting Center next year.
  5. Cut Robby Anderson NOW

    I don't have a problem with what Bowles said his post game presser about Robby campaigning for Pro Bowl votes, he's been very vocal about the "team first" environment he's trying to create in that locker room. With that being said, where I do have a problem is with Bowles always being quick to call out the young guys and not the veterans. I mean I hate to assume but what if it was Forte that said that? I have a feeling his response would've been much different. I actually don't dislike Bowles overall and hate to pile on but this is just one thing I've noticed with him, he has huge favoritism towards vets vs. the young guys.
  6. See, I agree that he needs to find a QB but the worst thing he and this franchise should do is draft someone just because we need a QB. Now, if he likes Rosen or Mayfield then do whatever it takes to get him but if these guys are unattainable b/c of our draft position then go with the next best strategy. I do think they need to draft a QB this year and give that QB a real shot but a real backup plan like Tyrod Taylor could make a lot of sense.
  7. Don't hate it except for the Bradford part. Guys been hurt too much to rely on
  8. Interesting Francessa points

    Yes and we should have enough cap room to bring them all back especially Enunwa who may look to play on a one year prove it deal so he's not locked into a cheap contract if he comes back strong, ideally, you'd like to see Hansen or Stewart step up but I guess in order to do that they actually need to get on the field. ASJ needs to cut back on the penalties but he's been the best TE this team has had in a very long time and seems to like being a Jet so I would anticipate he'll be back. Kerley, ehhh just keep Kearse and again hope one of the young guys pans out. Again I'm not apposed to bringing in another WR just saying that I don't think we need to to find the next Julio Jones.
  9. Interesting Francessa points

    yikes, typo on my part that was actually supposed to read WR not QB completely agree we need a legit QB
  10. Interesting Francessa points

    I also think there was a mandate from ownership to fix the mess after the Idzik debacle meaning they knew there was a good chance they were mortgaging their future for short term success but that's probably what the owner wanted hence bringing back Revis. That's not so say I want to wait another 5 years to turn this thing around but I do think there will be a much more methodical approach to how the FO does things this time around.
  11. Interesting Francessa points

    See wr is actually one of the areas where I don't think we need to break the bank. I think you can win with a good solid receiving corps. Not saying we don't need another WR (don't forget about Enunwa) but I don't think it has to be Julio Jones if we can build a team with Robby, Enunwa, maybe keep Kearse/Kerley and hopefully one of the draft picks pans out (Hansen/Stewart) with ASJ I think that's plenty of offense With all the holes I'd rather spend money on a CB, Edge Rusher or on the o-line before WR.
  12. Craig carton arrested by FBI

    Sorry but this is NY Sports Radio and they were a top rated morning show. On top of that, they also lived in NY which means cost of living was higher so maybe he wasn't making $2.5mm but had to be more than $250k. Crap, I'm a mid level marketing manager and I'm pulling down about $150k/year living in NJ so it's not that far fetched at all. Also, I'm sure he had other endorsements and speaking things he got paid for as well. I know him and Boomer had a restaurant at the Barclay's Center that they were probably getting paid a licensing fee for, they were simulcasted on CBS Sports which I'm sure paid them on top of their radio salaries, and like I mentioned he also was probably making a little money doing things like paid appearances and speaking fees.
  13. The return of double D; kudos to Mac

    Pryor was a name that has sort of flown under the radar when fans talk about the "veteran purge" that went on last offseason and while it turned out to be a good trade for the Jets, I think Bowles and Macc's mindset on getting rid pf Pryor was addition by subtraction as it looks more and more like Pryor was a locker room cancer that needed to go. The Browns have bigger problems than an ILB but what a microcosm of why the Browns are so bad. Trading a decent player for a Safety who's not even on the team anymore.
  14. Craig carton arrested by FBI

    That makes more sense, as much as it was being quoted around I refused to believe he was only making $250k/year. He probably also pulled down another million a year for paid appearances and what not.
  15. Fitz was a gamer while he was here but man, the entitlement he brought with him just rubbed me the wrong way and not to mention the divide in the locker room between the Pro-Fitz crowd (Marshall, Decker, Mangold etc...) and everyone else (Sheldon) really was a major reason the team fell apart the way it did last year also resulting in the purge you saw this offseason.
  16. I don't have a problem with the trade itself. Meaning, giving up a 5th rd. pick for a young CB with a lot of potential on the surface makes sense. I mean he's the type of talent you're going to find in the 4th and 5th rds anyway. I'm more disappointed with the fact that no one on the roster was able to step up. I know these later round picks are a crap shoot but I had high hopes for Juston Burris and he has just looked lost. What about Derrick Jones who we drafted in the 6th last year? Or maybe this was a spot McDougle could've filled. It's just disappointing to have to give up a draft pick because we're so think at CB
  17. Exactly, I mean heck Andy Reid passed on Watson. Not that makes it ok but I do agree that it's not like Watson was sitting there as this no brainer pick. Macc's problem to this point is that he hasn't taken the risk to go and get that guy. Sure you may fail like we did with Sanchez but it's also better than continuing to wait for next year while drafting project QB's in the late rounds.
  18. I don't want to see anyone get hurt but it's amazing with McCown's track record that he's been able to stay healthy and active through 8 games so far and with the way Bowles has talked the only way a young QB will get to play is if McCown gets injured, could this finally be the game he goes down and we get to see Petty again?
  19. So the double whammy of the Hack pick. We miss out on a potential impact player with that 2nd rd pick while also passing on other QB's because we want to see Hack devleop. I would be way more willing to forgive Macc for the Hack pick if he just owned up the mistake and moved on but to pass on other potential QB's because you want to see Hack develop is just crazy. As others have said, I do get the idea of making sure you're getting impact players with your top picks but c'mon Macc it's time to wake up this team's going nowhere with 38 year old journeyman QB's. Take a risk!
  20. The fact of the matter is, while I like McCown as a good veteran presence to have on your roster the mistakes he's made are dumb rookie QB mistakes. Look at yesterday as a prime example, while Cat needs to make his kicks, McCown on 3rd down knowing we're playing in a monsoon takes bad sack pushing the team back and making that a longer kick, get rid of the ball. Plus look at the last few weeks, the INT going into the half against New England that was essentially a 10-pt swing, and awful INT to close out the Dolphin game. These are rookie mistakes being made by a 38 year old QB, if he's going to play like that anyway why not see what you have in the young guys.
  21. Seems like a messed up dirty move but hey, he's a guy tying to get himself back into the league so can't blame him for trying. He knows a post like that might grab him a few news stories and keep hi relevant.
  22. Call the Jets for a minor holding penalty but how do you not call that one Kearse was held
  23. Agreed their shouoldn't be a decision but the guy is coming off some major legal issues and while it seems like he's gotten his life together you still have to be cautious about long term deals with a guy like that. Having a good rookie TE would've at least given us some leverage/a backup plan just in case another team blew us out of the water.
  24. He's getting overshadowed by the fact that ASJ has been playing pretty well but man, it's looking more and more like Leggett is going to miss his whole rookie season. Would've been nice knowing what we have in the guy before making a decision on ASJ.
