    First of all, you have taken a few examples, but lets use those.  If you are being objective, having a 6' 5" all world receiver adjusting to those passes is much different than having a normal receiver. Those are all big plays that are in his stat line that would not happen without a receiver like the ones shown.

    Can you imagine what those plays would look like going to Devin Smith?

    what was obvious about that exactly?  it was almost impossible to say whether his knee was down when he fumbled and I have no sympathy for Pitt after the Sanchez "fumble" in the 2010 title game that easily could have been called incomplete

    I don't like Pittsburgh either. The refs acknowledged the fumble. They said they could not determine who recovered. Reviews showed it clearly was recovered by a Steeler defender. Anyhow, not surprised or phased by any of it. I have become numbed.

    They lost because their defense sucks. They lost because Ben has been terrible on the road this year, and the Pats are flat out dominant at home. They lost because Leveon got hurt, and Antonio Brown had no impact. They lost because you can't spot the Patriots 10 points before you convert your first 1st down of the game. They lost because Mike Tomlin is out-coached by Belichick routinely. They lost because the Patriots didn't get called for a penalty until after they had a 3 score lead. 

    They lost because they were never supposed to win. The NFL is a cash cow, and Vegas loves the Patriots in the big game. 

    Pretty much sums it up. They would have almost certainly lost anyhow, but that Brady obvious fumble ruled "inconclusive" also speaks volumes. Some things never change...

    Pitt lost b/c of Brady and the Pats O.

    They also lost because they lost their MVP and could not run and control the clock, which frankly was their only chance in this mismatch. But their defense was terrible and matched up poorly against the Pats. Pats made it look beyond easy. I don't think Pitt was a Super Bowl caliber team and the game was largely a mismatch.

    Once again though the folly of a great defense winning is exposed. Don't tell me about the Broncos last year or the Seahawks, they both still could pass. None of the final four defenses are all that good, and the Packers were especially awful. Pats do have the great talent of interfering with opposing receivers every down without getting called for PI, which is wonderful. And running the ball isn't so wonderful either. Defense and running the ball are basically a sucker bet. Go sit in the corner with Rex Ryan babbling about how your #2 vs the run. 

    Simply have a good QB and pass effectively is what wins NFL  games. Now, Mr. Maccagnan,  go ahead and draft a safety and then an LB  and then a  CB while you have the sh*ttiest of offenses.If they do not upgrade the offense significantly I may be done with this collection of suck.    

    And Dulcinea was a filthy whore. 

    Peyton Manning had 9 TD's and 17 INT's and won a Super Bowl last season.   D was not as dominant, nor were any other D's this season. I'm not sure what the Steelers put on the field yesterday, but they were pathetic on defense. How many times can you leave Chris Hogan WIDE OPEN?!! And of course zero pressure on Tom Tom.

    Rex took over a 9-7 team and went 9-7 and then 11-5...flash forward six years later and he never broke .500 again. To be fair, he had exciting runs in 2009 and 2010.

    Bowles took over a horrific 4-12 team and went 10-6 with a journeyman, internship prone QB - that is a hard thing to do by accident. He did not have good year at all this year...there is not debating it. But his journeyman QB crapped the bed and all of the key vets began to show their age at the same time 

    I am looking forward to seeing how you figures this out.


    His QB may have crapped the bed but so did his defensive line, secondary, offensive line, special teams, wide receiving corps, and just about every facet of this team. And, by the way, his journeyman QB went 10-5 last season and won 5 out of 6 games down the stretch, making coach look pretty good. Unfortunately, his journeyman QB could not overcome all the team's flaws this season, and truthfully, even top QB's would have trouble winning games with this squad. It is beyond uninspiring to think of this clueless coach walking the sidelines again next season. This is a guy who is supposed to be a defensive guru and his defense was nothing short of atrocious against the pass and so incredibly undisciplined game after game. In fact, there is not a thing I can think of that Todd Bowles did well in 2016.

    Nice guy, and it's absolutely absurd the think Fitz may still have a job somewhere as Bowles is unemployed, but he did it to himself.

    You could say it was just horrible luck that him getting his chance as coach coincided with $hitz.  Then once $hitz did ok last season, Bowles was almost forced into playing $hitz.  And that's partly true.  If he didn't start $hitz and we did poorly this season, he'd be blamed for not playing $hitz.

    Ultimately he made his own bed though at one of 3 points:

    1. A couple weeks into this season when it was obvious $hitz had somehow miraculously become an even worse QB over the offseason.  It was obvious week 1, but even if you allow for a slow leaning curve, no way $hitz should have been playing after Sept.
    2. Naming $hitz the leader of a multi-billion dollar team when he wasn't even signed during the offseason.  Again, I feel bad for saying it cause Bowles seems like a cool guy, but ya can't fix stupid.
    3. This whole $hitz thing could have been avoided in early October '15.  If he just went back to Geno once the jaw was healed, Bowles would still have a career.  Instead he phucked himself by hitching his career on the $hitz train.  Smh, fool.

    This team is abominable in virtually every aspect. Fitz should have had multiple TD passes yesterday but that is beside the point. The Chargers are no worse than the Jets yet Philip Rivers gets a pass for all the losses, even when it is to the pathetic Browns. It is clear to anyone who understands the game that the problems go far beyond the QB position and any QB would be severely handicapped with the roster of buffoons. The receivers have worse hands than some pop warner receivers. It is truly astonishing how putrid this team is on both sides of the ball.

    Note that I will throw up in my mouth if Fitz gets back in there. Hope to see Petty and would be curious to see Hack. How do we draft a high second rounder who is barely capable of suiting up? He's now had nearly a year to work on mechanics and such.

    You should be throwing up in your mouth anyway. Jets look worse than ever now.

    It seems that this uninteresting. uninspired team. for the most part has not done anything memorable this season. But they have done several things that are marked in franchise history.

    1. They beat the Ravens. First time the Jets beat the Ravens since 1997.

    2. They won on the West Coast. First time they've done that since 2010.

    3. Completing the two biggest road comebacks in franchise history, against the Browns and the 49ers.

    Very weird

    Wow...what the hell happened in between!

    lol the point is A LOT more ex qbs do not become coaches lol.. 

    peyton manning had a weaker arm than most people's grandmother in his last two years.. He still did pretty good.. He was a genius at reading the defenses, etc.. He was basically the coach on the field.. 

     Fitzpatrick was a decent journeyman qb.. He was NEVER a star, mostly a backup who got his chances.. How can you justify saying he made intelligent decisions on the field this yr? Or even many last yr. He has thrown interceptions even rookies would not make.. throwing picks in fg range.. Not feeling pressure coming.. locking in and telegraphing passes is not the makings of a intelligent qb, or varsity athlete..

    Peyton Manning had 9 TD's to 17 INT's last year. Fitz's year this season would be an upgrade.
