  1. They will likely just trade for Glennon
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Sorry, again, not sure you blame Fitz for this loss... plenty of blame to go around, but not so much for Fitz today.
  14. Yeah, if we had Brady or Rodgers we probably win today. But there are only a handful of these QBs out there (if that many). Every other QB has strengths and weaknesses; except for the fumble, you can't really blame Fitz for the loss. You can blame the OL; the D (they seemed to get too conservative in the end of the 4th quarter; blame coaching, Marshall for the drop, etc. Yeah, if we had a strong armed QB maybe we don't have to throw in the middle of the field with 30 seconds left. But, the Patriots constantly beat QBs with strong arms. Fitz played smart and tough - he plays with a lot of heart. Not sure most other 'average' QBs with a great arm (so probably not as savy) do any better. I expect the Jets to finish better than .500, so I doubt the next Rodgers is waiting for us next year. So, unless Petty turns out to be our Brady, we have to find a way to win with an average QB. Jets should have won today. A couple of plays here or there; different calls - we may be talking about a win; we will regroup and hopefully learn
  15. Its situation football. When we are running well, the other WRs are better blockers. Decker in the slot, but yes we need a few more receivers to step up.
  16. Personally, I think the defense let us down; they are by far the best unit on the field; That being said, we played tough against arguably the best team in football early in the season with a rookie head coach in Gillette. We should have come away with the win, but this team never quit - Bowels played it pretty smart; they adjusted better at half than we did. Hopefully week 16 will come out differently. The team is still looking pretty good; Gailey shook things up with his play calling; Fitz played pretty well. We need to regroup and continue to pile up the wins and get better.
  17. What? Planning for your opponent. No that won't do. You are supposed to pound your chest and tell everyone you're the best and they cower; then you play the game you want stick stubbornly with your approach. Right? Planning? Preparing? You are just talking crazy now.
  18. its almost like they are using a different (or differently inflated) football than anyone else
  19. This is the part that bothers me the most about the Pats either they get lucky as ... Dallas without Romo/Bryant, tuck rule, etc. or teams just implode on them. Not sure if Indy wins this game anyway, but why pull this with the game being close and their D holding?
  20. It says that as fans on this board we won't have to listen to Pats trolls for a least a few weeks.
  21. I think the whole OL is benefiting from the fact that Fitz is making decisions quickly and running when necessary. I don't know if it is Fitz, the OC or both, but it helps the OL to not have to hold blocks more, and now the passing game is complimenting the running game and visa versa.
  22. The top 2 teams in the AFC East are playing their first game against each other; both teams are ranked in the top 10; one team seams to be running over most teams; and the teams don't like each other (a good rivalry). For the players and coaches it is just game 6; for the fans (of both teams and the nfl) this is a quite interesting match up - plenty of hype to go around. It is way more interesting than... bills vs. jaguars, bucaneers vs. redskins, falcons vs. titans, browns vs. rams, etc.
  23. The difference here is that he didn't 'fight' it; they negotiated the decision. Maybe he should have fought it (but they announced the policy before he was arrested - so he cannot claim that); anyway, I tribute the timing of the decision as to it too that long to agree to the compromise. I hate the Pats as much as anyone and think they always get the breaks (lucky or otherwise), but I think this is just what it is; once the charges were dropped, the process started - it probably just too so long to work through the system.
  24. Way to cherry pick - Ryan was there 6 years, which would mean 12 games (plus the playoff game); last 4 games played were: 13-10 NE 30-27 NYJ (OT) 27-25 NE 17-16 NE (last 2 decided by missed/blocked FGs).... 4 games, won by 9 points...
