  3. Is it as "homo" as "BINGO! WE GOT BINGO! WE WIN AGAIN!"?
  4. Is there any doubt that Morton makes a big play against the Jets? He'll do well up there. And Morton is definitely a running back.
  5. I could swear you were questioning ABE's toughness. I must be wrong. No need to call me a liar. More than ready to admit it if my memory left me. I was one of ABE's primary supporters and went at it with 90% of the board with very little back-up, so I am surprised that I forgot you. BTW, that was a quote from what, yesterday? You sure you haven't changed your tune at all? 8)
  6. I don't discount that they will be looked at if they do well, but Henderson interviewed for nothing off of last year, so it may not be as imminent as you think. Dinger has already interviewed for some positions. He has stated his desire to be a HC. I don't know that he'd take any position, but he's a candidate to leave. Still, there will be many hot coordinators apart from our guys, plus hot college coaches and retreads. Let's hope our guys do so well that they are both potentially gone. For those who hope that Herm expires, at least we have two viable HC candidates aro
  7. Tough to say. I think the key thing with Jolley is that he's just a totally different player than we are used to seeing due to his speed. He'll demand a better defender than Baker or Becht and he will pull coverage away from the receivers. His value will likely transcend his numbers in that regard. I'd look for 55 catches, 600 yards and 5 TD's. Not eye popping numbers but a far greater impact than we are used to. In truth, he could do less and still make a big impact. They key thing will be when he makes the catches. Can he convert a lot of big first downs like McCareins did last
  8. That's a definite possibility. Though I would caution you from spitting an any winning record, I also agree that you have to have standards. They HAVE refaced the team over the last two seasons. I think they deserve to see how their ride works. I'm very interested in how this year plays out. I am only a medium fan of Bradway's and though I like Herm, the time has come to open it up.
  9. I think if the Jets are a failure, he ought to go. Not 100% sure that he will. I hope they would can the whole regime if things don't fly this year. That said, I can't see them firing them after a ten win season. Ten wins is an accomplishment that gets put down a lot around here, but in reality, it's the stamp of a quality team/season. Of course it's not the SB or even the elite level, but it's a prerequisite for both and an accomplishment in and of itself. If, at the end of the year, we are playing well and in the playoffs, I would likely be fine with ten wins. OF COURSE I
  10. You guys make me laugh. You are so focused on your little cause that you just don't see straight. You've got these apparent demerits, many of which I don't even agree with, that are somehow supposed to outweigh the man's tangible accomplishments. What great accomplishments? This is how we judge coaches now? I go by their record. Savage rips ABE and Cumar on a regular basis and now we are to accept Herm is blessed by their mere presence when he took over. Herm screwed up all the schemes and put players at the wrong positions, but we are suppose to somehow disregard that
  11. You don't? You claim that his hiring was a PR stunt even after the guy puts out three playoff teams. Herm took over a team that was two straight years out of the playoffs, but you continually say he was given a good team. That's a disingenuous way to discredit him. When you brush off a guy who has spent his entire adult life in the NFL and has paid all kinds of dues as a guy who was hired based on race, you are discrediting the man. TO BE CLEAR - I am not pulling the race card. Full stop. It is a discredit to the man. He played ten years in this league a
  12. Wow, this thread is downright funny. The lengths by which some will go to discredit a good coach is just too much. BTW, I never said he was top ten. I don't much care what his qualitative ranking is on message boards. My posts are out there. No need to keep repeating myself.
  13. You kill me because up until last year, he was killed for NOT winning the early games even though he beat playoff teams down the stretch. Have you no shame?
  14. Herm took over a team that had missed the playoffs in both years prior to his arrival. Hardly some juggernaut. We can bicker this all day. I am not convinced Herm is the answer, but he's far far from the dolt many of you portray him as. The body of work is solid. Sorry - but it is.
  15. Your eye is off the ball my friend. Blame? Blame for what? Herm ought to fire himself? Should he never make changes beneath him even if he thinks he can improve the team? If he was unwilling to make such changes, wouldn
  16. Teflon Herm is blameless? That's funny, because one Herm detractor continually brings up a speech where he blamed himself. Herm has blamed himself for numerous things throughout his tenure. The media has taken him to task for a bunch of things. He's regularly ripped on this board. Not sure what world you're living in. Almost all head coaches are held up to unreasonable levels of scrutiny. Of the coaches you listed, only Martz and Wanny rates as a fool in my book and even Martz gets points for some very innovative offensive ideas. Martz is sort of Herm's opposite
  17. I will celebrate what I want where I want. You can't ticket me in NY, ociffer... This is the typical response. You don't like Herm so you piss on the valid accomplishments of a good coach and our good players. That's your call, but you'll have to allow me to see it my way. So to you, there is a champion and 31 losers. I refuse to view it that way. I would never evaluate ANY team that way, why should I view the Jets that way? I guess you think that Parcells never accomplished anything during his Jets tenure. I guess that all us Jets fans have completely wasted our ti
  18. This is his last year to prove himself? He's already proven himself. This is not meant to imply that he
  19. Really? Game management, clock management and decision making sounds like a lot of stuff. Unfortunately - it's all one thing. His game planning is poor? That's funny, because most Herm bashers try to claim that he has nothing to do with game planning. After listening to the Herm bashing crew, one might be surprised to find that other head coaches also have two coordinators. 8) Belly had two of the best and so did Parcells when he was winning bowls. Good coaches surround themselves with good coaches. Herm has chosen The Cane, Donnie Hendu and Dinger. S
