  1. So what. They were a team that was in the SB conversation while the Jets were in the "4 win or less" conversation. Besides, I also mentioned the Saints and almost sweeping the Patriots....FYI. 

    We also almost got swept by the Pats... 

     

    As for the OP, Rex will be Rex. Like it or hate it, they guy is not going to change his entire personality.  

     

    As for the debate of should we keep him: I like the idea of keeping him teamed up with Morningwhig (sp?).  I would make Marty the Assoc. Head Coach and give him nearly complete control of offense (personnel decisions, playcalling, etc).   I would keep Rex on as HC and let him do what he does best with the defense.  Bottom line is this - Rex is not perfect nor is he a complete coach...But the fact that he is a top 5-10 Defensive mind in the league puts him far ahead of most other potential candidates, who are top 5-10 at nothing. Look at our past HC's since Parcells. Can you remember anything that EM/HE/AG did nearly as well as Rex does defense?  Me neither. 

  2. Does seem like he came to play. Not really looking too long term right now but if performs well enough to stick around next year then yay. Some nice, cheap FA signings this year...

    Idzik hitting with Colon, Nelson, Salas, and Ivory makes up for the miss on Goodson.   Now his priority for this offseason will be to lock up WIlk long term and find us a true downfield threat on offense... 

  3. The Jets seem to have gotten smarter this year. I think it all started with Rex taking over calling the defenses and getting a real OC in there to run the offense. Let's face it Sparano was never and should never have been given that job last year. Yea, no more Tebow sideshow, no more of the failed Ducasse experiment. No more Dustin Keller on and off play and of course it all only matters if Sanchez is right where he is and Geno doesn't have to be looking over his shoulderpads.

    That I think is the real key.  Marty is drawing up gameplans that actually fit the QB and the talent around him.  He is not stubborn about forcing the backup QB to run a wildcat up the middle for no gain on 2nd and long.   

     

    A lot of Geno's progress this year is because he has developed nicely thus far... And a lot of it is because his OC has put him in situations that are possible for him to succeed.

  4. The chemistry on the team seems a lot better then years before.

    +1 I have a feeling a lot of the guys were growing tired of Bart Scott's yapping and certainly the whole Tebow/Sanchez debacle last year... I like the way this year's team has zippered up the chatter - isnt clamoring for headlines - just going out and playing football... Certainly not the most talented collection of players we have had, but thus far I love the intangibles the team as a whole has shown. 

  5. Sorry to disagree but a game ending stop by the defense did not happen. TB got the ball back to kick the go ahead FG.

    Exciting game nonetheless. 

    It could have if the offense actually came out swinging instead of playing scared.  One or two first downs out of the offense on that drive and the game is essentially over. 

  6. Ivory moves alot and goes nowhere.

    Powell is god awful slow.

    Khalil Bell is better than both of them.

    Geno has given me hope.

    I'm still waiting for Rex's ferocious "D" to make a game ending stop.

    Harrison might be better than Ellis.

    The D made that stop today. The offense went 3 and out and took a whole 56 seconds off the clock doing it.  Demanding that they do it twice in a span of 3 minutes is not very fair.  They need some help from the offense...

  7. We have 4 wide receivers who would have to battle to make #3WR on any other NFL roster, and we have no running game whatsoever.  Gino looked great for a rookie, I like what I saw.  He made throws that Sanchez never makes, impressive poise and confidence in a rookie, I like.  It's amazing we won today, but this was mostly because our D-line was playing very well keeping us in the game, and Gino's will to win.  We won't win many games and Gino will have a very rough season if we don't get a running game going. 

    I gotta say Im happy to be eating my words leading up to this game for the time being.   With the OL being as atrocious as it was today - Geno hung in there and made things happen with both his arm and his feet.   Unless we find a way to magically improve our OL play I gotta believe that Geno gives us the best chance to win.  If its Sanchez back there we're seeing at least 2-3 more sacks and maybe another turnover as well.   No fault of his own - but the OL is sh*t and he lacks the athleticism to be able to get away that Geno has.

  8. Warmack>Milliner

    I thought Milliner played fine.  You gotta know coming in to his rookie year - and being injured for some of camp - that he wasnt going to instantly step in and be stride for stride from what we saw from Revis in year 3 or even Cro in year 5.... 

     

    For a rookie Cb in his 1st game going up against a proven NFL WR - he did pretty well.  Not great obviously - but he will learn as the season progresses. 

  9. Theirs an article about the jets win on pft. Their still hating on the Jets even after the win. Man if we make the playoffs, I can't wait for the sh*t storm that will happen across the media.

    1st of all lets pump the brakes on playoffs and be happy about a week 1 win.

    2nd if the Jets were to make the playoffs, those leetches in the media would have done their backtracking on how bad the Jets are a long time ago

  10. Looked very very good today all around.  Held Martin in check for well under 100 yds and generated some good pressure on Freeman. This can be a very fun unit to watch throughout this season and hopefully for years to come.  A whole lot of youth and athleticism in the trenches on D.  

     

    I would expect to see a lot of teams  using a lot of 3 and 4 wr sets against us and going hurry up to neutralize that and wear us down.   Surprised we didn't see more of that today.    

  11. Yeah JiF, find some place BETTER than Wikipedia that says you aren't allowed to add games that don't exist to do the math. The Jets finished the 20 game NFL season last year at 6-10 with 4 no plays - 4 below .500! 

    Yeah, thats confusing. If you were to think of it like in baseball, a team that is 6-10 is in fact only considered 2 games behind a team that is 10-10, as well as 2 games behind a team that is 8-8.   Either way, I think its fair to say the jets finished 2 games behind .500 last season.
