  1. 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...
  2. saw that on NFL network; I was hoping we were going to trade Geno there
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. 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.
  6. 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 game), but Geno doesn't even pretend to be happy about the win. 2. When you see him on the sideline, he isn't talking to the OC or Fitz. When the OC and Fitz are talking, he isn't looking over their shoulders. It is like Sanchez at Philly - did you see the shot of Brandord on the tablet talking to the OC while Sanchez was sitting next to him, starring into space, listening to his ipod? Geno isn't going to learn to read defenses and how to prepare for a game from Fitz without talking to him. Isn't it McDoggle that is always around Revis during practice and the games? that is how you learn.
  7. 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.
  8. Acutally it was 3 (2 fumble recoveries and an int - pryor had an int and so did Gligrist (sp?)), but he still rocks
  9. 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. Yes (still think they paid too much for Harris) 6. Yes; I love to watch these guys play 7. Yes and mostly disciplined - not only are their penalties way down; they are starting to get the benefit of the doubt with the officials. 8. I am looking forward to seeing what he can add to the offense. If he is really that fast, it could have made a big difference last night on the deep balls 9. I couldn't agree more. Nice post
  10. 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 time, but let's be fair, Revis got 'lucky' by being there for the 2 fumbles (he was great at the goal line btw) and his int was helped by Mo hitting Luck's hand. But, Revis was great. My old boss said that the better you are the luckier you get. Pryor was in the right place for that int, but more importantly, he was in the right place - protecting the deep ball and giving help to the CB. He also had a great run back. Last year, he would have been out of position and likely dropped the ball even if it came to him
  11. 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
  12. 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...
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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 worried about his behavior when we traded for him, but his leadership is amazing. We need to draft his replacement soon, just so he can learn from this guy. I loved his interview. The offense stunk it up (it wasn't him - see below). "I am the most hollywood guy here" - he didn't act so hollywood to me. He didn't boast how he played above Davis, but he did say shame on the media for comparing him to Revis. Defensive adjustments and game plan. For a second week in a row, they came prepared and ready to play. For the second week in a row, they adjusted when they needed to. Smart. Going back to Bilal after the fumble. Bad (too much like Ryan on all three). I know it was a big game; but some of the penalties were just stupid. Not worried about the Coples penalty (thought it was crap, but at least he got to hit the QB). Pulling people off of the pile, shoving a guy downfield. Stupid. Don't play down to the opponent (that was clearly frustrated). I hope there is some accountability for it. Playing Cro. The defense played great and clearly Bowles and company know more than me, but it seems that we played Cro out of loyalty. He didn't seem right and I thought Williams deserved more snaps. I wouldn't have benched him, but I would have given Williams more reps. Got to get him some experience, and rest Cro (especially on a short week). The offensive Game plan and lack of adjustments. Bowles said they didn't want to have the Colts dictate the game plan. I get that, but we got way too conservative way too early. You want to keep Luck off of the field; i get it. But, the defense was controlling Luck; have faith in them; have faith in the offense. Doesn't good coaching dictate the the offense should take what the Defense is giving you? We should have had 2 more scores. Imagine going into 4th Q winning 20 - 0, instead of 10 to 0. Forget letting the Colts stay in the game; forget risking loosing in the 4th with an tired secondary - we just exhausted our D on an away game on a short week. Hopefully they can rest up and prepare for the Eagles. Special teams. The only thing worse about our specials then Kerley as punt returner is our punter. He is great about pinning inside the 20, but is always good for one bad punt a week. Fortunately, our defense and offense have been playing well enough that we don't need a 60yd punter. The bad sounds like a lot, but I love the way this team is playing. I love the heart. I love they way the are winning while learning. But, winning cures all evils, I would hate to see the worts show if they don't fix the problems. Go Jets.
  16. 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.
  17. 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...
  18. 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.
  19. so do you go for a FG, or just throw and hope for a first down?
  20. way to play it out and not just run... ... way to go back to Powell
  21. Okay; I apologize for the Ryan comparison.... The defense was obviously tired, but came up big; 2 weeks in a row with 5 takeaways... wow
  22. so, why were we not playing like that in the 2nd; i hope they learned their lesson; can't take foot off the gas in the 2nd or 3rd (pats found that out yesterday).
  23. Sorry, but when you dominate on Defense; force 4 turnovers and are wining by 10 in the 4th Q it stops being house money and just stupid if you give up the game...
