  1. It was a sh*t pass by the stat-padding QB Tannehill. HE should've been penalized. The flag was for offensive PI though on #14 bumping Cro. And Ryan sh*thill still couldn't complete the pass.

    It wasn't just a bump, the WR took the CB out by slamming his head into his chest. Couldn't have been more blatant.

  2. Perhaps, but we know the Jets aren't good enough to get there or win it.

    Injuries, rookie coaching, unproven post-season QB, no victories over teams with a winning record. it's all there on paper.

    SAR I

    Our record against teams with a winning record is 0-1. Hardly something to be ashamed of. 

  3. Nice to hear this about another team and not ours.  And every media member picked these guys to finish ahead of the Jets and even challenge the Pats.

    It was the year Tannehill would make the leap ... now it looks like he's leapt off a cliff!

  4. I joked in the game thread last night about whether an interim HC has ever been fired before season's end ... guess it's still a possibility.

    What a circus! :)

    From NFL.com ...  "this firing smacks of a team trying to pacify fans sick and tired of a wildly dysfunctional team".

  5. Interesting movement in the playoff picture this week ... Pitt losing to Seattle was huge, it drops them below us (as of now) due to conference record, BUT that's a very incomplete tie breaker at present.

    KC still look the best bet for a WC spot as things stand ... easiest schedule of all the 6-5 / 5-6 teams, PLUS the best conference W-L record to boot (5-2). And they've beaten Pitt, Buffalo and Houston, so own head to heads there if needed. Two games vs. Oakland book-end a fairly soft run in their schedule (SD, Bal, Cle), SD could be a surprise but that game is at Arrowhead, so definite advantage for KC there.

    AFC South is getting tricky ... it'd be better for us if Houston win the division, due to the head to head tie breaker, but if there are 3 or more teams on the same record that doesn't factor in. Houston's next games are very interesting for us - Buffalo next week then Patsies followed by Colts. Another Bills loss could pretty much put them out of the race, and the Colts game could be the difference in the division title.

    Indy play Pitt this week ... if ever there's a game you wish both teams could lose, this would be it. Game's in Pittsburgh, so Steelers should be favoured, but Big Ben's health will be key.

    Pitt are below us right now due to conference records - we're 5-4, they're 3-4 and have games vs. Indy, @ Cincy and vs. Denver the next three weeks. That's a rough road. If they lose 2 of those 3 we may be able to stay ahead on conference record. I'm assuming we have to beat Tenn and Buffalo to stay in the race, so in that scenario we'd end up 6-6 conference record (unless we can beat NE ...)

    Lots of key match ups this week - Jets need to take care of business vs. the Gints first and foremost.

  6. ummm how do you figure with bills and jags losing? Because Texans won?

    KC win was possibly a worse outcome than Buf win ... KC have a soft schedule to come, I could see them going 10-6 quite easily.

    I'm fine with Texans winning, but a Colts loss would have helped us - we need Houston to win the division ideally, as we have the tie-break vs. Indy but not Houston.

  7. Agreed. I did a quick look at the schedules of the other teams competing for the WC. We have the easiest schedule. But we lose this one and its pretty much over.

    KC has by far the easiest schedule of the legit WC contenders. Buffalo today is their toughest game, and they've two vs. Oakland, other than that it's SD, Baltimore and Cleveland.
