  1. Listen, regardless of who is lying, everyone passed on Brady. I can't get nuts about it. In fact, the Belichick and the Pats did so five times themselves.
  2. I believe Parcells about the scout. He sounds sincere to me.
  3. Ahh, ok. Philly has a legit chance, IMO. Also, I always thought the home-field Superbowl thing was overrated, anyway. The super bowl tickets are always virtually evenly distributed among the two respective fan bases and the game would be played indoors. The notion that the Vikings would have had a "home game" is a fallacy.
  4. This Philly team is the most under-the-radar 13-3 team of all-time. During the regular season, they were tied with NE for the best point differential (+162) in the entire NFL and they had both a top 5 offense and top 5 defense all year. They absolutely have a chance to beat New England.
  5. Minnesota was favored in the game.
  6. Biggest Celebrity Jet Fans?

    I haven't seen him mentioned yet: Larry David is a big Jets fan. edit: Never mind, he was already mentioned.

    Ok, so then what was your point?

    Even so, what should we have accomplished offensively with Bryce Petty taking snaps?

    Well, I'm not sure about others, but I certainly never implied he was a great offensive coordinator. I implied that he was a competent OC, and more importantly, that our offensive rankings were commiserate with our talent level (i.e. bottom five offensive talent should be expected to yield bottom 5 offensive rankings) I Agree

    Not really. The fact that you remember people having similar sentiments about Chan Gaily and Marty Morninwheg has absolutely zero bearing on whether or not getting rid of Morton was, in fact, a prudent decision. So . . . maybe this discussion is not for you?

    Seriously, how many teams had worse offensive personnel than us this year? 2? 3? I challenge anyone to name 5 teams with distinctly worse offensive talent. Another year, another offensive coordinator. Meanwhile, we keep Kacey Rogers, the coordinator of our underachieving, 25th ranked defense. Makes sense.
  12. JETS FIRE OC JOHN MORTON (MERGED)

    Yeah, maybe for our dogsh*t offensive personnel.

    Again, we had very little offensive talent. As the saying goes, it's the jimmies and joes, not the X's and O's. Coming into the season, we were expected to have one of the worst offenses in NFL history. We were starting Josh ******* McCown, our number 1 receiver was out for the season, our offensive line was considered to be utter sh*t, etc. Morton managed to field a relatively competitive offense, all things considered. He got a career year out of McCown and worked around a very suspect offensive line. I'm just not sure what people were looking for this year. We need more talent, fellas . . . starting with a decent quarterback who doesn't check down every other play.
  14. JETS FIRE OC JOHN MORTON (MERGED)

    Sure. I thought he had an innovative, modern take on a WCO. I thought he had some of the worst offensive talent in the league and, for the most part, managed to field a competitive offense, week in and week out. I don't think the guy was perfect, but I thought the offense had a precision to it that it had not had in years, and again, we easily had bottom 5 offensive personnel in the NFL. The bottom line: Another year, another offensive coordinator, another season of excuses pertaining to the players having to learn a new system. Nothing changes. Some continuity would have been nice. IMO, the best part of this news is it makes it more unlikely that we will waste another year with McCown (But, I sincerely doubt we were going to do that anyway).
