    5-4 since mononucleosis. 

    Winners of 4 of their last 5 games. 

    Waiver wire kicker comes through. 

    Top rushing D in the NFL. 

    Most injuries in the NFL. 

    No Bell. No Adams. No Mosley. 

    Gutsy comeback (twice) win today. 

    “Team sucks from top to bottom I’m a SOJF and can’t be happy when the team wins.”

    The textbook definition of the acceptance of utter and total mediocrity while trying to be condescending to others.

    Amazing how you conveniently left out

    Beaten up and to a pulp on National TV by Myles Garrett

    Losers twice to zero win, zero effort teams who were actually trying to lose to bolster draft position

    Shut out at home on National TV by 30

    Losers by 30+ how many times against good teams?

     

    You sure write great posts though LOL.

    @ASH1962 I’m going to use Cleveland as an example here. They were 0-1 when we played them, they weren’t “on fire”. 

    After they beat us, they fell to 2-6. They have since won 4-5, just like we have. They will also probably win at least two of their final three against Washington, Baltimore and Cincinnati. They are one of two teams to have beaten Baltimore so they might win that one also, although I doubt it.

    Their final record will be either 8-8 or 9-7. So they will have finished “strong” at either 6-2 or 7-1 over their final 8 games.

    Now that we’re done with the easy part of our schedule, our remaining games are Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Buffalo. I’ll be really optimistic and say we will win one of those, which will leave us at 6-10. Most likely though, we end up 5-11.

    The last month has been fun, we got to see a bunch of wins, and we were all happy. In 3 weeks when we look back though, we’re going to realize we’re the same team we’ve been the last 4 years, and picking around #6 once again.

    @slats As I mentioned I think most have enjoyed this stretch of wins, but they were tempered by the opening day collapse and the mono thing, like you said. The losses to Miami and Cincinnati also made it hard to get excited about the wins we did have as far as them meaning much in the big picture.

    Not on fire? LOL did you watch that game? That night we were no match for them or any of the teams we got slaughtered by in the first 6 weeks. Myles Garret put half of our team in the hospital that night. He is suspended now.

    Was just talking about timing..nothing more nothing less

  3. Just lamenting over another lost season, what if.....

    We played NE 2 X now (we would possibly win 1 or even both games)

    We played Jax now (They are a mess)

    We played PHL now (They are a mess and are VERY beatable)

    We played Cle now (They are a hot mess as well)

    All of these teams were whole and on fire the first few weeks of the season when we played them without Sam where we literally had zero chance with Luke Falk at QB. If we would have had the reverse schedule and played the pattycake teams earlier, muddled through to say 4-4 or 3-5 is record. We may have had the chance to win a lot more games nearing the end of the season and even competed for the division. Pit sucked in the beginning of the season and now is winning again every week. Bal was winning but not dominating as they are now. Also have to wonder if we were in contention, would we have lost to winless Mia and Cin?

    Our timing, as usual, sucks LOL, but this is not the team's fault, it is just the way things unfortunately go for the NY Jets.

    Hoping one year soon our luck and timing will turn around and we can get some breaks like other teams like NE PIT BAL always seem to get.

    It's weird.  That first series, he was the most disruptive we've seen him all year long and then I dont remember seeing him at all on the field after that serious.  I havent see the official snap count yet, wonder we he ended up.  

     

    He got hurt I think I heard

    Hence the call for so called Jet fans to actually show up and stop with the excuses "I don't have time to go to the game, but I had a 100 post day yesterday talking about it" or its too expensive, when tickets are at all time lows.  

    Rise up off the couch and go to the game!  Its going to be like that movie "300" fan wise if we don't get more Jet fans in the stands.  

    With all due respect - BULL $HIT

    Let the dopes that own the franchise put a quality product on the field for once and fan attendance will be no issue whatsoever. I went out at halftime yesterday to the gym and to do other things instead of watching that absolute dreck of a football game. I have invested 50 years and countless Sundays on this team and refuse to do it anymore until they start winning. Guess that makes me a bad Jet fan. So be it. As I get older, my time becomes more valuable to me, not to be wasted on crap.

    I have my own theory about Darnold.

    Little background: I had mono at roughly the same age as Darnold. I was in decent shape, certainly far from NFL shape, but above average at that time and for my age. Mono kicked the ever-living crap out of me. It literally took me an entire year to feel right again. I know the write ups will say 2 to 3 months for recovery but that sort of also assumes like complete rest something you can enforce on a teenager. Every time I pushed myself physically all the symptoms came back and I was super weal and sore.

    But Darnold is not really resting at all. I truly believe that not only does he still have mono symptoms which is causing some of the erratic play, but I also think (outside a couple planned runs where he was not exposed much) that he is being told not to run and risk getting a big hit as there might still be some concern about his spleen. 

    Just my thought.

    Absolutely excellent points.

    I liked Richard Todd better than pretty much ANY QB that came after him, beating Oakland out there to get to the Championship game was one of the best feelings ever....then Shula made sure the field was slop because the Jets hands down had a speed advantage up and down both rosters.  Probably been a way different story if torrential downpours hadn’t hit Miami before the game (the Jets cursed luck since SB III) and the NFL had made Shula protect the field or forfeit, but he had serious juice with the league, head of the “Competition Committee” too I think.

    Poetic Justice that Washington waxed his team in the SB and that he NEVER won a SB with probably the greatest QB of all time....Dan Marino.

    I'm with you, Todd was good if not very good.

    If you have any other unique fleeting thoughts, please start new threads for them. Don’t want to risk missing anything in the midst of already Underway conversations about the same tool that just don’t deliver.

  9. This thing they are going up against Thursday is 15 miles across, 25 miles wide, travels at the speed of light, and has guided laser weapons.

    This may be the annihilation of the century

    I was a safety in high school. Ol' number 23. That's right. Thought about playin' college but, you know, Uncle Sam had other ideas. Ended up in the Navy. But...ah, what the Hell. Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, chief. It was comin' back, from the island of Tinian to Laytee, just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in twelve minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. Thirteen footer. You know how you know that when you're in the water, chief? You tell by lookin' from the dorsal to the tail. What we didn't know... was our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. Huh huh. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, chief. The sharks come cruisin'. So we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know it's... kinda like ol' squares in battle like a, you see on a calendar, like the battle of Waterloo. And the idea was, the shark comes to the nearest man and that man, he'd start poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark would go away. Sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about a shark, he's got...lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'. Until he bites ya and those black eyes roll over white. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the ocean turns red and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' they all come in and rip you to pieces.

    Y'know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men! I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand! I don't know how many men, they averaged six an hour. On Thursday mornin' chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player, boson's mate. I thought he was asleep, reached over to wake him up. Bobbed up and down in the water, just like a kinda top. Up ended. Well... he'd been bitten in half below the waist. Noon the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us, he swung in low and he saw us. He's a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper, anyway he saw us and come in low. And three hours later a big fat PBY comes down and start to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened? Waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went in the water, three hundred and sixteen men come out, the sharks took the rest, June the 29, 1945. Anyway, we delivered the bomb.

    LOL Captain Quint. Just one question, did you actually remember this straight from the movie or did you have to sit there typing the closed captioning?

    I did't mention injury in any of my posts.  A crushing, but legal hit that does not result in an injury can have the desired effect.   I assume all the naysayers don't like Greg Williams ???  Football is somewhat like "sausages" for some.  You may love them until you see how they are made... 

    What?

  12. Come on, who here did not see this coming from miles away? The minute I heard Dalton was returning I knew what would happen. It is really hard to go winless in the NFL. Any given day anyone can beat anyone, except the Pats and the refs. So here come the Jets, into winless Miami, and into winless Cinci. The Jets are the team that EVERYONE wants to play because they mark it as a virtually automatic win. 

     

    Today as was the case many times this season, the minute we fell behind 7-3 I considered it game over. They looked like they had no interest in competing.
