  1. I get that, but they play in the NFC East, they could probably go 0-4 and still take the division :-). My problem is when a player comes out and says it, and they loose (and I hope they loose), what do you do with the rest of the season? Unfortunately, for the Jets, winning doesn't prove much, but loosing does. At this point, we can only determine how bad or inconsistent the team is, but we really won't know how good the team is until we play the Pats. At this point, Miami looks like a mess, but their home game won't be hot and humid (or as much) as they are playing in the UK. The Pats ar
  2. I agree with many here that say this is a good team, but I also agree with many here that say that being 2-0 while beating a 1-1 and 0-2 team doesn't prove you are a good team. The Jets need to beat the Eagles and IMO Miami; we go 4-0, beat teams that we are supposed to beat and a struggling division foe, that it way more convincing than starting 2-0 against weak or struggling teams. It is a good start. The best start you can have. But until they consistently beat the weak and struggling teams are start beating the better teams, the 2-0 record just means we are pretty good and pretty consi
  3. Except for Playoff elimination, I never understood painting a game as must win (especially this early in the season). The media, well, they say stuff to sell. But, when a player or coach says it, not sure of the value. If it is a 'must win' and you loose, does that mean you don't have to work hard for the rest of the season? If you say every game is a must win, it looses its meaning, if you are the type of team that needs to have a label on it to get them to perform, does it even matter if you win it? Also, if you believe it and the game goes south for a bit, don't you just spiral down?
  4. I am not sure that we are a top 10 team yet; at least I don't think we have proved we are a top ten team yet. We get more out of our offense than maybe. Way better than I thought we would be this early and with Fitz; happily surprised. If we beat the 'wounded animal' like we should and Miami, then we can talk about top 10 (maybe); either way, I don't particularly care who is above us or below us as it doesn't effect our game (hopefully).
  5. I would cut Geno , okay, maybe not, but it felt good to write. I am not sure with his injury history (esp. concussions) that anyone would take Owusu (but this could be releasing danny for clowney all over again) I think we have like 20 OL guys, probably could release one of them... We are going to have to release someone long term after the bye for Richardson, so might as well make the tough call now...
  6. saw that on NFL network; I was hoping we were going to trade Geno there
  7. I don't think anyone in the FO, media, or even fans (even the pro Fitz ones) think that Fitz is our future. We need to get/grow a franchise QB. I think the point is that this is was is expected from (at a minimum) an NFL QB. A team can win a lot of games (especially without D) with a QB playing at that pace.
  8. It is just a feeling I have. Could easily be wrong. And, if something happens to Fitz, I hope I am wrong. I hear all the time about the DBs hanging around Revis and the receivers hanging around Marshall and Decker; never hear anything positive about Geno; of course, with some of the worst media - that could just be them hating too. Here is to hoping that you are right and I am wrong...
  9. Great post. Glad we won. I like the direction of the team in general, but you take what the defense gives you (to some degree) and you have to put the other team out when you can.
  10. Sorry, I don't believe in Geno (hey maybe he proves me wrong). Geno is by far the better athlete with the strong arm. Geno's two problems IMO is that he doesn't read defenses well and is too slow on his progressions, and he is not a leader/team guy. It would be nice if he would use this incident and the time to fix both of those, but look at him on the sidelines. 1. He is moping during every Jets win. He puts himself before the team and the win. Marshall said "it isn't about statistics, its about the team winning" (or something like that); maybe that is just the winning (or his 100yd 1TD
  11. Cool, I check these too, but it doesn't mean much. These are just guys with opinions, it doesn't help us (in fact with Ryan it could hurt as the team would get full of itself). I like to see them up high, but I would be just as happy next week to see Jets drop 4 slots in win over Eagles. Maybe this team isn't that good, they just beat up on another crappy team. Whipping up an 0-2 team doesn't impress us. Now Miami loosing a close game to mediocre team - they move up 4 points. Glad to see them getting good press, but wins and watching this D is what makes me happy here.
  12. Acutally it was 3 (2 fumble recoveries and an int - pryor had an int and so did Gligrist (sp?)), but he still rocks
  13. My take on some of your points. 1. Sorry, couldn't disagree more. This guy has what it takes. I seem to remember Rex making Brady look pedestrian a few times and that is after he had all the experience in the world and a good/great team. Luck is surrounded by crap. If he was on the Jets, we would be SB favorites. 2. Agree completely, now if we can avoid the prevent offense... 3. I did notice that; interesting, I wonder if he gives it back at some time; I don't have a problem with it since the defense is HOT, and he seems to be able to manage the game (something Rex couldn't) 4. Yes 5.
  14. The whole defense has been hammering people. They knock people out of the game, but more importantly make the 'pay' for the completion and are forcing turnovers. To be fair, Proyor sucked last year, and yes he is still making some bad plays/tackles/angles. But last week was his best game to date. And last night was his best game to date. He has been playing better and hitting hard. He didn't choose where he was picked, and that is now history. Let's see if he can continually improve and make a significant impact to the team. maybe he was 'lucky' to be in the right place at the right ti
  15. I am totally enjoying the win (except I am so tired today). This is a what did they do right, what they did wrong thread. I just pointed out what they did wrong. I love the win, I love that we are competitive, and I love this defense. Bowles talks about moving forward and trying to win while doing it; it is great stuff. Talking about improving when a team is winning is the hallmark of a good coach. You can't talk about improving without pointing out where you can get better
  16. I agree, it just thought it was bad. I think the team is heading in the right direction and they are quite good, but like Bowles said - they aren't there yet. Hopefully we stop the ultra conservative game plan on offense. Yes, they took away the run, but gave us the middle of the field for throws and all the time to throw it... you have to capitalize...
  17. What - this guy is off his rocker. Hasn't he been reading this site? Fitz is by and far the worst QB we have ever had. Everyone knows that. Wait, no, sorry, Mark Sanchez was by and far the worst QB we have ever had, right? Okay, I am confused, which one is worse? Anyway, clearly Fitz sucks this analysis is crap.
  18. It is a typical trap game. A 2-0 team playing a 0-2 team on a short week. The 2-0 team feeling good, the 0-2 team has talent but has been playing like crap with their backs against the wall. The backup QB recently run out of town. Only thing missing is that it is a home game. Good teams beat good teams, bad teams, and teams with their backs against the wall. It is a trap game, but it is also a great test to see what kind of team we have and how good our coaching staff and core players are. This is a game the Jets should win decisively; let's see how they show up. Go Jets.
  19. Good The secondary; hell the whole damn defense. They played scary good. As some other posters have pointed out, this is the defense we were promised during the Ryan era, but never got. If we had this defense, we beat the Colts in the AFC championship game. The great thing is that that based on yardage, etc. we are not that good, but damn, 10 turnovers and only 17 points - that is a defense that can win championships. The seemed gassed at the end of the game and still came up big with an INT. They are dominant. Marshall - This guy is amazing. Strong, tall, savvy, though. I was worrie
  20. Not sure, didn't a similar situation happen to another player and he got nothing. Once the drug part of the equation was dropped it became a much lesser problem. He could also go the Brady rout. Appeal, then appeal in court. He won't miss another game this year.
  21. The win was great, but I hope we learn our lesson and not get too conservative too soon. This could have been a a sleeper in the second half...
  22. i am glad he makes it, but if he doesn't they get the ball on the 30; if they try for the first and don't get it, they get the ball at the 20 (or closer)... Either way, I guess we got the win.
  23. way to play it out and not just run... ... way to go back to Powell
