  1. I don't think it was much of a shot at the Jets as the Cowboys. He is saying, for a time with all of the pieces if you don't win in the post season, it is no different than a team at the bottom of the league - 1 year away from #1 and 2 with just 3 or 4 wins. What I think he is saying is that the expectations for the Jets and the Jags this year was not high, while the expectations for the Dallas was a strong showing in Post season - so, Dallas failed worse than the Jets/Jags.

    Of course, if you don't want to be used as the - no better than - team, win games and go to the playoffs :-)

    They won't refuse because as mentioned, they would like someone else to pay his salary. They could also say refuse to let him interview with a division rival or something which we all wish they had done with Adam Gase. 

    You kidding? They wanted us to waste 2 years on the guy and were thrilled he stayed in the division; they probably laughed their asses off when we hired him.

    Huh? His injury was not season ending. It was a 4-6 recovery period after week 1. He was just too out of shape and unwilling to work hard enough to get back on the field. There were ZERO reports of set backs in his recovery.  


    A setback from the standpoint that his knee didn't heal as fast as hoped. So the term setback, was a setback in expectations on the speed of heeling - that can be extremely frustrating and depressing especially to an young athlete  who wants to have a great career.

    Some article clips below:


    “The knee did not come along as quickly as [the Jets] had hoped, and what happened was, because he wasn’t able to do the kind of things that he needed to do to get into rehab and get back in shape, he put on weight,” Garafolo reported.


    [Saleh] insists that the delayed recovery is not the result of some sort of problem with his surgery or recovery, adds that Becton has done a great job with his rehab and his past issues managing his weight and conditioning have nothing to do with the delayed recovery, and usually mentions that everyone heals differently, especially when you're 6-foot-7 and and 363 pounds, like Becton

    Becton can't get depressed over every sprain or he is doomed to fail. Lineman get hurt and play hurt every year. 

    An injury that ends his season is not a normal sprain. An injury that was caused by an incompetent player rolling on him is likely to upset him. He spent all offseason working hard and trying to stay in shape, you can't blame a kid for getting upset when he gets and injury and then he has to keep waiting on rehab. I remember some pro, can't remember who, who said the hardest part of rehabbing an injury is that it is lonely, frustrating, and quite hard emotionally. He said it took everything he had to not get depressed. But, hey - ....

    Also, while I am sure he is no where near in football shape, he didn't look way overweight. Are the pictures from October, or more. recent?

    It was a terrible choice...

    they were moving the ball with ease on the outside.  Absolutely no need to change that - take one more shot out wide...and then throw it up.

    Actually, they were moving with ease on the outside and then the D finally adjusted and moved most of the D on the outside, leaving the middle of the field open. If he stops 2 seconds earlier, they spike the ball after a nice pick up and they have a shot into the end zone.

    Why would anyone want to live in Utah instead of NY or LA.

    Funny. I am not sure what the difference between Utah and some of the more secluded parts of LA. My guess is that she isn't a city gal - but outside New Orleans, you can find the 'quiet life'; maybe the weather? Also, New Orleans is nothing like NYC; okay during Mardi Gras; maybe it is her family.

    Why couldn't she stay in Utah for an extra month and still stay together? I think it is the 8 months in NY/NJ that is really the problem, or she found out that she doesn't want to be QB wife. Or, maybe she wanted to be a wife, and he wasn't ready?

    So jerry is going to fire mccarthy to hire the guy who called a qb sneak w/ no time outs left?  I dont think so.

    Sounds ridiculous, but it was a gutsy call, and it almost worked. Down that far with the D finally protecting the outside, it was just as likely to work as something else. I think someone, maybe Romo said that Dak should have slid down 5 yards earlier; had he done that and the officials weren't so slow, he would have been able to spike the ball with a really good gain. Throwing in the middle of the field would be same risk except it may take longer. Either way, it was a long shot and it was a imaginative call - clearly the D didn't expect it.

    Well when the HC of the team said he “sucker punched” him what exactly should those media report?

    Of course - I am just commenting about another thread where I am frustrated with the ease the media makes stuff up or gets it wrong - then fans infer based on that to call it fact.

    I probably broke like 5 JN rules with that alone. I was just trying to show 'things we know' we often don't know even when getting them from HC. I was very clumsy ...

    Why does it always come back to Mac Jones? Are people really surprised that a rookie QB with a bunch of no.3 receivers got destroyed by the no.1 defense in the NFL? It was the most predictable outcome ever. Bill Belichick's reputation has been built around strong defenses. Tonight his defense gave up a touchdown on all seven drives. I feel like this is a bigger story than Mac Jones and his predictably bad performance. Would the greatest coach of all time really allow this to happen?

    Does anyone else see the irony of this statement? like another rookie QB everyone is dumping on whose OL is worse and who would feel like he was playing with #1s if he had Mac Jones' #3? LOL

    Anyway, this is a BB without Brady topic; while Bill's D gave the ultimate fail last night - maybe a reasonable QB could have slowed them down by scoring points and not giving up INTs. But yeah, the defensive genius who spent big time in the off season on his D got pretty badly spanked. Even with Brady in his prime I doubt they win that game, but how many years did Brady make up for Bill's soft D? who knows.

    Then you’re not paying attention. Stop posting and start googling.

    Instead of telling me what to do maybe you should follow your own advice; if you don't like my opinion - ignore it or refute it.

    Secondly, the title and the video all say 'sources confirm what many have suspected' if he had been called out for being lazy than it would not have been suspected and sources wouldn't be confirming anything as Saleh and LaFluer would be the. most knowledgable sources and it would have ALREADY been confirmed. So, maybe it isn't me that isn't paying attention.

    Simple logic, but hey - I guess you can't google for logic..

    So, you’re saying he looked as bad tonight as Wilson looked all year? 
    i’m having a tough time being happy the Pats found a rookie QB good enough for them to make the playoffs. Game manager or not.

    Meanwhile, we’ve got a guy we’re bending over backwards to convince ourselves our guy will be here in two years.

    Yep; Zack may bust. Mac Jone will likely not Bust. But this Pats team got to the playoffs beating up on bad teams, Jets included.  Mac Jones having rookie moments at the end of the year just so happened to coincide with him playing against better teams. Houston blocked their own punt and the first Bills game was played in almost hurricane winds.  Pats loose either of those games and they are not in the playoffs. 

    As far as looking as bad as Wilson looked all year, that is a bit hard to answer. Mac Jones certainly started the year better off. Wilson had no turn overs towards the end, Mac Jones not so much. Pats D, OL, and receivers considerably better than ZWs. ZW did better against this same buffalo defense.

    😂😂😂😂 Maybe wait until we don’t sh*t our pants every time we play them before talking trash?

    Maybe we are just enjoying the irony of watch a team who is known for running up the score, who were walking around pounding their chests after hanging 50 on the hapless Jags, get spanked on national TV.

    If you think it was Jones rather than the Pats defense that lost this game, I can’t help you.

    I don't think that is what he is saying; obviously the Pats D lost this game - even if Mac Jones had a good/great game they could not catch them, but he did not have a good game. What is his QBR? This board has gone bananas over the fact that ZW padded his stats and the end of the game with meaningless scores - well, what is his QBR if you only look at the first 3 quarters?

    The D lost the game, but Mac Jones didn't elevate anyone.

    I hate to break it to you, but the rest of the nation calls him the same thing.

    Yep - he is great when his D crushes the other teams and he has his running game; his numbers against good defense aren't that good. His floor is higher, but his ceiling is pretty damn close to his floor. we will see how he does next year.

    But, yes, the strength of the Pats is supposed to be the OL, running game and D - and none of them really showed up today. The D completely let them down, which is also enjoyable as it is supposedly BB's speciality.

    But Mac Jones is a game manager; put him on the Jets and he would have been worse than ZW. Put him on the Jags and he is worse than Trevor (or maybe not :-) ) Put him on row Pats and surround him with talent and he will be okay, but no a Josh Allen, ever.

  15. LOL - news guys talking about the smack down, but they are not pessimistic about the future - Pats will come back better and stronger next year; Mac Jones will have a full year behind him...

    Of course, now that there is tape on him - teams will realize that they need to take away the run and short passing game, get a lead, and they can't catch up - yep - very optimistic about watching them loose more next year :-)
