  1. To be fair, that was more of a QB ducking/throwing too quickly because of a rush than miscommunication. Also, stats get padded each way all of the time; how many ints does a QB get when the ball bounces out of a WRs hands? What if the receiver pushes off and it doesn't get called? Also, if it was Kyle Wilson, his back would have been to Gronk and it would have hit him in the head. Being elite includes watch the QB, knowing routes, and being in position when the QB has to throw too quickly.
  2. Yeah, he is only human so a decline is only to be expected; he seems to be more about technique than raw athleticism, so he should be able to hold on to his edge longer. The other thing to consider is that he was most effective under Ryan when playing exclusively man-to-man; now he is playing zone. It is also a new defense for the whole team; we don't always know when he is supposed to be man-to-man or if he was supposed to be zone and if someone (including him) blew a coverage.
  3. He may not be the guy he was, but a lot better than most; also there were some games where we had absolutely no pass rush - a CB can only cover so long - I think one game even Westy was saying that it wasn't Revis' fault. Either way, I am glad we have him. Maybe declining but still one of the best. At least we didn't overpay for Suh...
  4. Marshall has been a beast this year, but who would have guessed that. Revis coming back has meant a lot to this team. He may be declining and more often getting targeted than before, but that also increases his impact when he plays great. Also, his work habits, film watching and professionalism is a good example for the younger CBs on the team. I was hoping he could do something with McDoogle and Milliner (oh well). Money well spent I think. Sometimes, when you have the money, you can overpay. Marshall has had more impact this year, but I think it is closer than you think. That being said, Brady was more than happy to throw to Revis - I love his comment about you hate throwing picks, but Revis wouldn't be his first choice. I love this rivalry now that we are no longer a joke.
  5. Got it. An example of 1 isn't an example. Nobody else agreed with him. The rants over sitting Fitz don't count. The rants over Pryor being a bust don't count. My original post said nothing about Widespread. You win, take one aspect of my post and go to town with it. Because this site NEVER has any overreacting knee jerk comments like lets blow up the team, or Bowels doesn't adjust, yadda, yadda, yadda. This is silly and I am moving on.
  6. I guess we will have to agree to disagree. As for giving Idzik props, well. He sucked, I said as much. In fact, I said as much when I stated the only concern with getting rid of Rex was that we would get worse (like we did moving from Mike T to Idzik). That being said - if we don't acknowledge the good, than any criticism seems an emotional one-sided rant. To say he sucked is perfectly fair. To refuse to acknowledge anything he did right (or not wanting others to) just makes us look foolish IMO. But, he totally sucked and sucked any passion out of this team. Glad he is gone; glad Revis is back.
  7. And I said that many said similar things about different players. My point is that someone somewhere is always asking for a change. You want to count them all - go right ahead. We have multiple threads calling for Fitz to sit. Multiple threads saying the were frustrated by Bowels/Chan. Even that thread said that wining 6/7 games he would like to start over (not 11). Fitz sucks and will never win more than 6 games, start Geno. We lost 2 sit Fitz. Pryor is hot garbage, get rid of him... I can go on and on. But, I am done. My point all along is that fans and media always want to pull the plug, but in Cleveland it is likely to be a good idea.
  8. I disagree, sometimes you need to part ways with a player; they either want too much, or you can't afford a fair contract. Pats trade away players all of the time - like Seymoure etc; nobody accuses them of not wanting to win.
  9. My problem wasn't so much the plan (although I think he squandered picks and could have done better), but much more that when the plan failed he was either too stuck behind it or couldn't adapt/make decisions quick enough and we were stuck. We always wonder about coaches who don't adjust at half time, but Idzik refused to deviate from his plan - even when it was failing. He thought a crappy season was acceptable.
  10. Sorry, i was talking about the pick he got - I specifically said he didn't do anything with it; that was great value for a player who wanted a lot of money, was about to be a UFA, coming off of a major injury. The fact that Idzik didn't draft well is another story. As for the money, I wasn't talking about cash I was talking about Cap and we had a lot of holes to fill... Many don't agree with the decision, but I think it was a good one.
  11. Sorry, I think this was a smart move. Revis wanted too much money and we were a team in a need of rebuilding and had cap issues. He got great value for Revis. The fact that he maybe should have picked differently given the extra 1st is another story. Sometimes you have to make the trade even though you love the player. Sorry to tell you, but this is a very likely option for Mo - doubt we can sign him at this point.
  12. Here is one: http://forums.jetnation.com/topic/124577-bowles-i-will-say-it My point is that people are always calling for a change. He is hot garbage, he can't coach; Fitz sucks, on and on, it isn't a scathing indictment on this site or anything else. The above post says if we finish with 6 or 7 wins pull the plug. I am glad that we have won 10 so far, but that doesn't mean that Bowels has long term success (I remember Rexs first 2 years). I am just saying sometimes it takes more than a year for a player or coach to start hitting his stride. In the case of Cleveland, def a time for a change. With Rex, it took too long. Also, sometimes you make a change for the worse (eg Idzik). People can call for someone's head whenever they want. Media too, but I am saying there is a tremendous lack of patience and even though many teams/fans have been hurting for quite a while, stability also plays into the consideration.
  13. His problem was that he was too methodical and couldn't make a decision quickly. He also didn't know how to build a scouting program. Finally, he panicked and abandoned his philosophy when trading for Harvin (too late too). Most importantly, he let his philosophy get in the way of fielding a competent team; it was inexcusable that he let the Jets secondary get as bad as he did - and did nothing during the season to fix it. Yeah, he did some good things - but he left too many holes and didn't inspire confidence. Maybe he didn't get a fair shake with Rex, but I think most will agree that Macc has done a better job with fewer draft picks; when we lost Amaro and had injuries at WR, he kept going out and found more; not stars, but kept filling the tank. Of course, Macc had more money and he and his coach seem to be on the same page, but some will argue that he didn't pick Bowels, but 'agreed' with the choice. Of course it is too early to see how the Macc/Bowels FO works in the long term, but things are looking good so far - let's hope it continues...
  14. Fitz has had a great year, no doubt about it. I want him back and let Petty and whomever else we get compete for the backup role for a year or two. But when determining the contract you have to take a few things into consideration, and one of them is Fitz health history. The other is that this is by far Fitz's best year and flew under the radar of a lot of teams - what is the likelihood that he plays this well or better next year? On the other hand, Fitz has been a journey man. One of the reasons he is having such a great year is that the jets offense surrounding him is quite good; they also have a good defense to keep the pressure off and he also thrives in Chan's offense. Therefore both parties have plenty of reason to work out a deal and realize this is possibly the best fit for both; Jet's won't do better elsewhere and Fitz likely won't either. I am hoping for a fair deal - not sure what it is. Hopefully 3-4 years where he is 'cuttable' in the 4th year. Unfortunately, I think Mo is a lost cause at this point; his play this year is only solidifying that.
  15. We are a better team since back then; Also, didn't say Rex was right or smart in his media stuff..
  16. People hand out HOF and hot garbage out a lot. JAG is another one; in my mind a JAG is a totally replaceable, nothing special player. A role player is something else. No matter how you slice it, glad Powell is on the team.
  17. I agree with both; this year has been a success 10 wins, playoff contention, new attitude and professionalism - things looking good moving forward. But, if we have really left the SOJ behind us, we have have to show up prepared, play a full game, and not get caught in a trap game. Anything can happen on a Sunday, but if we show up flat or get blown out it shows that we haven't come as far as we thought. Good teams with the playoffs on the line beat mediocre/bad teams with nothing but my coach wants revenge; With Rex we could have a trap game and back into the playoffs, but if we want to be a good team, this is a game you show up for...
  18. More like him either trying to explain the loss now (see i told you they were good) to save his job, or trying to lull Jets into a SOJ trap game.
  19. I hope the Jets win next week so we can be worried about what seed we are... Jets should be able to beat any sub .500 team at this point, they just need to play hard for a full 60 minutes...
  20. How has the Seattle D play after he left It is hard, as sometimes (often) a good/great coordinator doesn't convert into a good HC. Sometimes it take more than a year for a safety, WR, QB, or HC to become effective.
  21. The defense also got gassed in the second half - hard to win in Denver with that attitude.
  22. The Bills are in our division; if you think Rex is a joke, then why do you want him fired? Only advantage to Bills being any good is that they can possibly beat the Pats, but Rex was better at keeping close to the Pats more than beating them.
  23. I remember that going on, but I don't have the time to go back and check; we had a lot of people calling for change when we hit that loosing streak ... either way, my point is that although Cleveland does need to make a change, owner, fans, talking-heads are too quick to pull the plug. Forget bowels, how about Fitz sucks and will never win 6 games, he can't stay healthy, Pryor is hot garbage, etc.
  24. Sorry, except for a few, I think the Jets have way more talent... not complaining about Bowels; can't ever look at any of this in a vacuum;
  25. I am happy with Bowels, but Quinns biggest problem is a lack of talent; Bowels has done great things, but Macc started the process by managing the roster.
