  1. We called Pryor a bust after 2 games, why not call the coach a bust after 7? I was very disappointed in the team and especially the defense this week, but one week doesn't make a season. Can we wait until the end of the year to find a new coach? He needs to prepare this team better. He needs to do a better job, but let's give him a season to see how things work (at least one). Really good teams don't change FO/coaches every year; consistency is the most important. A team is never as good as their last win, and never as bad as their last loss. Either way, not sure it is time for another coach.
  2. Clearly Fitz and the Jets are playing pretty well on offense. A lot better than we are used to seeing lately. I think Miami isn't very good, they clearly got beat badly last not. I think Tannehill is a middle of the road QB playing on a very dysfunctional team. If we had a long term, middle of the road, QB we would be perennial contenders (maybe it would be easier to move to another division than find a QB).
  3. Just because you have Landry and Wake doesn't make you a great team? Look at the defense on Houston; Watt, etc. It is how the team plays together (team sport), how balanced they are, etc. This team (except for the previous 2 weeks) was a dysfunctional as they come. Just because they have great players doesn't mean they are good. All a great defense has to do is shut down Landry; score enough points to put Tanehill behind, and ... Yes I watched the Jets/Miami game. We beat them; we beat their offense, we beat their defense. It wasn't close IMO; therefore, not a good TEAM. As far as Tanehill; on this board players are either the best that has ever been or hot garbage. Nothing in between. He is a middle of the road QB. Way better than Geno; he has more more maturity (ok not much). They ran for like 14 yards in the first 3 quarters last night. Is that Tanehill's fault? It is like the Jets loss to the Pats - it is always the QBs fault. You put him on a balanced team or better and he will be a middle of the pack QB; Not sure why you are so emotionally vested in Tennehill; put it this way, can you think of 10 QBs in the league who are worse than him? I can. Middle of the pack doesn't mean great, it means better then almost half.
  4. Last 2 weeks they have been blowing out the competition.
  5. I still think Tannehill is pretty good. He is playing on a team that isn't very good. Even if the new coaching staff is good, they are playing catch up and the offense isn't right. I think they also started to read their own press and were cocky. Also, Bowels who has had an entire offseason to prepare to coach and a full week to prepare for the Pats was out coached, can't imagine how hard it was on the new coaching staff to go against BB and Brady on a short week. Either way, I would be happy if Tannehill was the Jets QB (as long as we didn't overpay for him the way the dolphfins did). He is a middle of the road (12-16 in the league) with a pretty strong arm. He needs to settle down and make the next step, but the pressure is on with his new deal.
  6. Not taking anything away from Lewis, but if we had a passing game that was unstoppable, teams would stop stacking the box against us and spread out. That would open lanes. Again, Lewis looks great. But if he was on the Jets (or another team that has a worse passing game) it would be completely different. The Jets use the run to set up the pass, the Pats throw the ball and occasionally run. Big difference.
  7. The fins are a game behind us and are currently 0-2 in the division. If we can't beat them in NY and we can't win enough games (especially considering who we play) to be ahead of them for the wildcard race, then not only do we not deserve to go to the playoffs, but we will certainly not do well even if we get there. Because of that and how much I hate the Pats, you have to root for the phins, or a tie... I don't think Miami wins tonight, I don't think the Jets can take the division, but you have to play for it. Root for the Pats to loose every week until they start loosing...
  8. It seems to me that if the NFL wanted to encourage in season trades, it should move the deadline out at least 2-3 weeks. At this point, there are very few teams that are really 'out' of the running for a playoff spot, but come the end of November, the reality for many teams will become more evident.
  9. Forget this.... .. the real question is who had the hotter wife in their prime? discuss....
  10. It comes down to a few things in my mind: 1. Bowels got out coached (it is going to happen esp. when playing against BB) 2. It is hard to hold an offense down a whole game in this league especially with Brady at QB 3. Pryor and Skrine getting hurt 4. Defense getting gassed (the Offense has to do better in 4th Q as well)
  11. Say what you will about the Cheaters, but you don't show up late or miss flights. It just isn't allowed. A team with TB and a decent backup isn't going to set a bad example with this guy (-even though you were probably just joking).
  12. They will likely just trade for Glennon
  13. This is all a moot point. The team is 4-2; They are favorites to win next week and are likely to win 4 out of the next 5 games AND your QB isn't loosing the games for you (regardless of what people say about his arm strength). You just don't change QBs at this point. Even the great BB didn't bench a struggling Drew Bledsoe and he actually had a future HOF QB on the bench. It just isn't going to happen. The only way Geno sees the field this year is if Fitz gets hurt, the team does a nose dive (particularly Fitz's play) or in garbage time. You may think that Fitz is the worst QB ever; you may think that Geno is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It doesn't matter. While he is healthy and the Jets are winning Fitz is the QB.
  14. This is no Gimmie and it would be great to have someone like Carr as our QB; but Luck is no slouch, and Tannehill lit it up this weekend. The Jets defense held NE to 16 points (even after giving them the ball in the red zone) for 48 minutes. I know the game is 60 minutes, but Brady and the Pats offense is probably the best offense in the league. I think we can hold Carr to under 20 especially if our balanced offense can hold the ball in the 4th Qtr. This is the NFL, anything can happen on any weekend, but I like our odds.
  15. Geno has the stronger arm and is more athletic and is younger; no body is arguing it. He also doesn't read defenses well, holds the ball too long, takes big sacks and has lost the locker room (if he ever had it). If all you needed was a strong arm, Jamarcus Russel would be in the HOF now. Maybe he can turn it around, maybe not. Meanwhile the Jets have been winning with Fitz. You don't 'take a chance' with Geno or the rest of the season because Fitz scored 23 points against the Pats and the defense could not hold. Sure, the 3 and outs help tire the defense, but if every team changed QBs when the Pats beat them, Rothesberger and Luck would be available for trade. I don't think it is time for the fire Bowels, fire Macc and bench Fitz signs quite yet.
  16. It is frustrating, but the media loves the Pats. After all, if you were to only listen to the game you would think the Jets couldn't do anything right and the Pats were winning by 100. At this point, unless the Pats fall from the sky, I think it is difficult to win the Division. That being said, I can tell you that neither Bowels or the rest of the Jets seem willing to yield the division and that is all that matters.
  17. Anything can happen in a season and the jets are playing good football. They seem prepared and they play hard. I didn't say we couldn't win the division, I said that with the Pats playing lights out, it wasn't a reasonable expectation. We are 4-2 and Pats are 6-0; even if we beat them next time and win ALL of our remaining games, the Pats would still need to loose at least one more to a very easy schedule. The Pats have been playing the same system for ever and have a HOF QB. Can we win the division this year - Absolutely, is it likely to happen or is it a reasonable expectation - I think no.
  18. The Pats are playing lights out, and we have a rookie HC a new offense, new defense, new and rookie players and we don't have an HOF QB. We were never in serious contention for the division. Was I hoping for a win - Absolutely; could the Jets have beaten the Pats - Absolutely. At the end of last season, we were a joke and nobody thought we would do anything this year; same jokes came out when IK punched out Geno. The truth is we have a reasonable shot at the playoffs. We have to keep getting the wins and growing as a team. It sucks to loose to the Pats when we were so close to a win, but the Jets are still playing above expectations. If we can get into the playoffs that would be great. If we continue to get better, maybe we can make some noise too. Right now, the team just needs to focus on wins; the schedule and the standings will take care of themselves. This team is way better than most thought it would be. Loosing to maybe the best team in football (or at least in the AFC) sucks, but it isn't the end of the world right now. This team is going to win a bunch more games this year (assuming we don't get killed with injuries) - let's sit back and enjoy the ride.
  19. Defense is 3rd against the run, but 32nd against the pass; these numbers aren't all important, but 32nd is pretty bad. Kind of like when we were like 28th against the pass; yeah, we stopped the run, but basically because people just threw against us.
  20. I am not sure what some fans want. Do they expect that Geno will win it all for us? Do they think the Petty is ready? It is not like we are sitting a HOF QB for him to play? What do they expect the Jets to do? Call Goodell and have him force GB to trade rodgers to us for Geno and a hand full of magic beans? Should we just give up as we can't win it all with Fitz? Just refuse to play for the rest of the season in hopes that Andrew luck re-enters the draft?
  21. Jets are #17 in the passing game; it is about as good as you would expect with Fitz. The offense actually looked pretty good in spots today. They seem to be getting better. No INTs today, didn't take any huge sacks. D needs to step up.
  22. Nobody is calling Fitz the next Brady. He is what he is. And, at this point it is not likely we have Brady or Rodgers sitting on the bench. Sure, criticize a player, that is fine, but today, with all of the blame to go around, not sure why you targeting Fitz. It is like saying the band on the Titanic could have done better IMO we were out coached. BB has been doing this for a decade, not surprising he had the upper hand on Bowels. If you are going to blame anyone other than coaching, you have to blame the #1 defense. If they had held on either of the last 2 TDs and forced a turn over or held to a FG we might be rejoicing now.
  23. I actually agree with the decision to not call timeout; if they had, they would have run out of time; the D has to make the stop in order to call it; had Mangold not gotten hurt (clearly not blaming him), we would have had an extra timeout.
