  1. The thing that scares me most about when a player like Revis gets this type of ligament injury is that a lot of times, they are never the same afterwards... Whether its because they can't come in and out of cuts and breaks easily, or because they naturally favor or protect the injured knee...Or a combination of both. I just hope this is something he can fully recover from. Oh, and just a question, this is not the same leg as his hammy injury a couple years ago, is it?
  2. More importantly, we're 2-0 under my leadership. I knew Caprenter was missing that FG. He had to. I started the thread. I don't even know why people bothered to watch the game. It was guaranteed W as soon as I entered my post. This is so easy, I don't even know where to begin.
  3. Holmes put the team on his back when his QB was sh*tting the bed, the running game wasn't doing squat, and receivers and tight ends around him were dropping like flies. Sanchez, despite a sh*t first 3 1/2 quarters, came through when we needed him to and got us a 4th qtr lead. And eventually lead the team down the field for the game winning fg. Powell played pretty well. The OL held its own in pass protection And finally, this is almost an ideal situation for a coach. You get to harp on the mistakes made in film sessions and on the practice field all week without wor
  4. we're 2-1 and tied for the division lead?? Cmon, can't miss the obvious one
  5. Well... GGM Starts the game thread. The Jets find a way to win. Revis gets injured. Its a trend.
  6. zOMG you mean he isn't tearing up the league in his 3rd game as a pro?
  7. Yup, Im back. And Revis and I are going to restore order...and winning. Squish The Fish!!! NY Jets @ Miami Dolphins 1pm CBS GO JETS!!!!!!!
  8. I never realized it till just now... But this thread is awesome.
  9. He'll probably be resigned in a week or two, as his contract is guaranteed this season anyway.
  10. Sorry, you are not going to convince me that the Jets traded up to that pick, then proceeded to sign and trade for others to complement that pick, over what they believed to be a Kerry Collins or McMahon part 2.
  11. Prior to year 2 we spent a 2nd round pick on Vlad Ducasse. We also had Hunter and Turner, both of whom had stepped in and been reliable in limited roles as backups, and a former 6th round pick, Slauson, was getting set to take over the LG position. Also, Holmes is young, and while I won't deny we overpaid for him, I don't think the decision to trade for him or keep him, in and of themselves, ware bad moves. While we did sign Plax and Mason, neither of whom worked out the way we wanted, we also drafted Kerley, who beat out Mason for the spot, and looks to have a lot of promise so far in hi
  12. I disagree with this as well. I don't think the Jets make that move to get anything less than an elite QB. Does drafting a guy at 5 guarantee he will eventually get there? Of course not, but the Jets weren't looking for a Collins or McMahon with the pick. Hence, if that is, indeed, Sanchez's ceiling, than the pick and everything they did because of that pick was a failure and waste of time.
  13. This is a flawed argument on a few levels. First of all, Sanchez came into the league as a starter for a team that had the best defense and OL in the league. They also had Thomas Jones, a consistent 1000+ rusher. For a young, inexperienced QB, you can't ask for a better situation to learn on the fly and grow. To add on, the Jets traded away draft picks and players to ensure that their young QB would have targets (Holmes, Braylon) to throw to and help him out in his development. They also signed LT so Sanchez would have a strong veteran presence behind him after Jones left, and so
  14. I think its definitely scheme related. Look at his D's with the Ravens.... He had a bunch of UDFA's rotating in and out on the line, with one or two solid players. The pressure came from Lewis, Suggs, and the scheme blitzes.
  15. That D is scary good, though, too. Once they get a 7-10 point lead, they feel comfortable having their offense just eat clock and letting the D protect the lead. Remind me a lot of us in 09/10... Except they're doing it with a QB in his, what, 6th year, while we were doing it with a rookie.
  16. He can say it all he wants. If you look at the numbers, the Jets have become less and less ground and pound and more and more balanced in every year since Rex got here. And that includes the first two games of this year, by the way. And Rex Ryan is the best coach the Jets have ever had in the past 40 years or so not named Bill Parcells, and everyone knew Parcells was just a band-aid guy who would give us a short window for possible success before he retired or left for elsewhere.
  17. This really is all a complete fan-created myth joke. When are people going to learn that having an elite QB is the only thing that separates the "great, well run, in sync, organizations" from everyone else? You know what organization people respected as this great, well run type of organization that developed picks and had a consistently good OL the past 7 or 8 years or so? The Colts. They lose their milky-way talent QB for the season...They finish 1-15, are the joke of the NFL, and sh*tcan their entire CS and FO and start fresh. Who were the Giants when it was Kerry Collins,
  18. I think you just answered one of your own questions actually...Its not like the Jets are the only team that suddenly can't run block - seems to be a league wide trend as of late. Blame the rule changes (training camp practices, padded practices, DL/LB not being allowed to touch QBs, DB's not being allowed to play physical with receivers...) or more versatile players along DLs and LBs (never before have their been so many close to 300lb players at those positions that can run, tackle, and create matchup problems for an OL) or a combination of the two. You find me a team that can consist
  19. It is worth noting though that the Jets D this year has given up 28 and 27 points in each of its first two games.
