  1. What I'm going to say is the classic "woulda-shoulda-coulda", but if Mangini and his staff had devised better game plans and coached better games, the Jets would be 6-1 right now. They did a piss poor job against the Pats and Raiders and it cost them. Luckily, no one has run away from the division (or the AFC with the 2nd seed still in reach), so Mangini and his team have an opportunity to right the ship.
  2. Huh? Where did I ever say that this outcoached coaching staff of the Jets was brilliant? Read what is read rather than what you want to read into things, otherwise, you wouldn't be debating something that was not written. Plus, if you'd look elsewhere, I have thoroughly criticized the Jets staff. So again, you're off base. The fact remains that Herm outcoached the Jets and had the game in hand EXCEPT his ultra-conservative nature with the game on the line came into play. A first down there and the Jets may not have gotten the ball back. Instead, he played it extra safe. My point was that the Jets lucked out by Herm being Herm. That hadn't nothing to do with how good or bad the Jets staff is. So again, debate what is actually written rather than what you imagine.
  3. WHat if the Jets had Ronnie Brown?
  4. That was my point as well, although I inartfully stated it. The formations they use reveals what play they're going to use, which is not a good thing.
  5. Leon for Herm was one of the best trades in Jets history.
  6. Sparano and his staff are maximizing talent, Mangini and his are not.
  7. Hopefully they have a good film session about this.
  8. The lack of formation variety-play call has been a concern for me as well. It gives the defense an advantage. I don't mind having so few formations, but I wished they called more, different plays from these formations. Heck, if I remember correctly, the SB champion Cowboys had only 2 formations, but they called a variety of different plays out of them. Favre has been here long enough to do that.

    I blame Arsis

    Alive for another weekend to start unofficial official game threads and hold the fate of the Jets fandom in his hands via the bad karma of starting the unofficial official game thread.

    I agree with the overall sentiment, but there is so many different variables that go into winning or losing a football game that we can't look at what the Jets did against the Raiders and Chiefs and automatically predict what they would do against better teams. The Jets are playing a better team next week and they can very well win that game. Mini-Schott may devise a better game plan, Favre may make better decisions, and the Pass defense may use better technique.
  11. Except for the game winning TD drive with 2 minutes left. Chad has never done that post shoulder surgery.
  12. Correction: The three biggest issues on the team are: Favre, Pass defense, and offensive game plan The last 2 weeks, the offensive game plan has been poor. Mini-Schott is doing a poor job in game awareness. He nearly got Favre killed to open up against the Raiders when he failed to adjust to the Raider's counter of using the blitz against the spread, then he uses no playaction at all. Today, it was the pass heavy approach and the spread on 3& short. Luckilly, these 3 things are correctible in my book.
  13. On Leon, luck (for the Jets) does play a part. If Jones was in instead of Leon at the end of the 2nd, it would probably been a 30 yard run and no TD. On the flipside, if Leon had been in instead of Jones on Jones 2 long runs against the Raiders, Leon would have had 2 TDs which would have resulted in a Jets victory. You can never predict when the Jets Oline is going to open up the Red Sea, you just hope Leon is the RB on those occassions because he's the only one on the team who can take it to the house on that play.
  14. Oh, got it. It's about time the Jets got lucky. Besides, the Leon for Herm trade is one of the best trade in Jets history.
  15. I agree with the first part, but not necessarily with the 2nd (LJ). LJ had to get suspended by the team. There was no way around it based on what had transpired. I think every HC in the NFL would have suspended him.
  16. He's not being called out. Herm is simply Herm. Luckily for the Jets.
  17. Favre is making bad decisions and the coaches are devising bad game plans. Luckily, they are 4-3.
  18. I haven't seen this discussed elsewhere, but the best of Herm (keeping a bad team competitive) was undermined by the worst of Herm (ultra conservative play calling in key spots). The plays in question was the Chiefs 2nd to last drive. The Jets just punted and the Chiefs had the lead and the chance to ice the game. What did Herm do? Three telegraphed runs. That's vintage Herm. If Herm wasn't Herm, the Jets would never have gotten the ball back in all likelihood.

    Agree 100% Plus, I thought it was great that after the team was deflated with 5 minutes left after the Pick 6, the team came back, got 3-and-out and Favre led a game winning TD drive. I can't remember the last time the Jets did that. Plus, thank the football gods for Herm. On the Chief's 2nd to last drive, did anyone expect them to do anything but 3 straight runs? Herm is always conservative. That was the chance to win the game for them, but Herm used his patented play-not-to-lose approach.

    Oh, and to add, if with all their issues, the Jets are still in better shape right now that the Chargers and Jags who many of the professional prognosticators claimed were SB contenders.

    The Jets were 2-3 in 1998 and ended up 12-4. Anything is possible. The Jets didn't commit to $140 million this offseason and trade for Favre to be 9-7 or 10-6. The FO dreamed big and I bet they still think they can. The players have to play better and the coaches have to coach better here on out because the players have not done a good enough job and neither has the coaches. Luckilly, they are 4-3. Even with that, guess what? The Jets play the 5-2 division winner next week and with a victory, the Jets and Bills will be tied. The division is still in a toss up mode.

    It's called coping mechanism and revisionist history. A lot of people thought this team was going to be 10-6 to 12-4, but now that they've strugged in recent weeks, some of them come up with revisionist excuses based on what happened last year.
