Why not Petty? in NY Jets Forum Posted November 2, 2015 · Edited November 2, 2015 by ASH1962 The book on Petty is that he is not ready and won't be for a year or two, if ever. So give Geno his last chance, with a mostly solid defense and some good receivers. He'll probably still be Geno and then we'll reassess in the off-season. Did you watch yesterdays game? To me, this is exactly why this defense sucks. People telling them they are great, telling them they are ranked #1 or 2 in the league, them listening and thinking they are better than they really are, and believing they can simply show up while opponents cower at the thought of playing against them. Um, wrong. We were 1-7 last year, and who was the 1 against? Yup, the team that raced by us yesterday and left us eating their dust.
