I'm rarely wrong.

Did anyone else have dreams of Rex hoisting the Lombardi trophy followed by a warm embrace with him an Idzik on the podium, crying, laughing and fondling each other?

Great.  So the Vikings decided Mike Zimmer was a better choice (I agree with them), and the Redskins hired a guy who was coaching in the UFL just a few years ago.     Also the Lions decided coaching

First part, sure.  Last part, only you.  Though if we win the Lombardi, Idzik and Rex could start blowing each other on the podium in front of the entire world for all I'd care.

I would get a Rex tattoo if this ever happened

This is still a false statement no matter how many times you type it.

I consider putting Kyle Wilson back there on the others also conceding.

 

The Jets lost that game by a field goal. They didn't block any punts and if they had gotten a return, maybe they flip field position and it becomes a different game. Either way, it's a stupid ploy to not have anyone back at all.

He was the backup punt returner. Kerley was officially diagnosed with a concussion 3 days earlier. After the game, with 10 days before their week 3 matchup, Idzik then picked up Cribbs to be a return specialist. Another phantom nothing to blame on the Jets' non-GM. Or were the Jets supposed to have 3 or 4 dedicated punt returners on the roster like exactly no one has?

Also you are wrong about the Jets having no returners all game long. It was like 3x out of the dozen-ish NE punts.

The first one I think was on Wilson, as the coaches were reaming him out on the sideline after he didn't get out there onto the field (but I can't remember exactly what happened and truthfully no one knows; I just remember him getting reamed out on camera & Mayock saying something obnoxious as usual but I forget about what specifically).

The 2nd one is the only one totally in question, and there was a monsoon in full swing with the Jets having no reliable (let alone DYNAMIC) punt returner playing that day. Despite your fairy-tale notion of possibility, Kyle Wilson was NOT returning a punt over 50 yards for a TD in a monsoon. He didn't even return a punt for 5 yards the whole game, let alone 50, and was fair-catching every punt under 50 yards anyway (particularly in the rain).

The 3rd one frankly I'm surprised that more teams don't do more often once I saw it happen. NE was punting from the Jets' 43, meaning the best-case scenario (with Wilson as the returner) is a touchback. So they threw an extra guy out there to go for the block. 3 outcomes were likely with Wilson back there: 1. touchback. 2. fair catch between the 10-15. 3. punt lands inside the 10 in which case he should be letting it go anyway.

And that doesn't even calculate the added possibility of a muffed punt or fumbling the return, which is 50-fold in those conditions.

In the rain, with the backup punt returner out there (and not a particularly good one at that), who fair-catches any punt under 45 yards anyway, what was the likely downside? The small chance that he would have fair-caught a punt that went exactly between 28 and 33 yards in the air and then rolled 15 yards in a downpour? Better off trying to block the punt IMO. The only reason the decision looked stupid was because it was the 3rd one in the game.

Had the same vision with Herm and Pennington. Without the fondling part. That never came close.

Funny, people always ask why arent you more "positive" about the Jets and I say " I am" just watch:

 

I am POSITIVE Geno is an awful QB

I am POSITIVE Rex is an awful coach

I am POSITIVE the Jets should get Johnny Jet

I am POSITIVE the Jets had plenty of weapons this year

I am POSITIVE Sanchez is an all-time worst QB

 

See, I told you I could be POSITIVE

 

I am POSITIVELY thrilled that you do not work in the Jets front office.

I could have done better than Tanny using the old DART BOARD method for picking players. And his contracts? WOW, you could get some dude off the street like that EDDIE MURPHY movie, where they get him off the street and he turns fortunes on Wall Street.

 

Being a GM is about 50% luck, and 50% GOOD luck.

Judging solely on your taste in beer, you would be a horrible GM.

Then I am HIGHLY qualified for the JETS GM job, arent I?

 

 

Anybody who drinks beer flavored water and thinks its so good they make it their signature can not be trusted to pick players for my team.

 

Coors Light isn't beer, it's a waste of time.

Ok, this coming from someone who's signature is from a fictional movie, and has the head superimposed of someone famous for the phrase "Pity the fool".

 

Hmmmm...........Bad beer or Fictional misfits?

 

LOL.

WOW, Jeff George? I actually thought that based SOLEY on talent, that dude had the sweetest delivery and could throw a frozen rope not 10 feet off the ground for 60 yards. He is my all-time most favorite bust QB with the more physical talent in his left pinkie than most QBS playing in the NFL today have in their entire body.

And yet he sucked.

LOL No, but you do see how someone can see your anti-Geno bias very easily when you say that the Jets not having good receivers is just an excuse used by people that have no such bias against him, don't you?

Ahh, I was just throwing those "POSITIVES" out as fast as they popped into my head. Now in actuality, I know they have to upgrade, but I still believe that with a fairly competent to good QB, certainly one thats not ranked last in the league that our "weapons" stats would have been markedly better with certainly a more accurate and decisive QB.

 

Is that fair?

He didnt really "suck". The dude just really didnt care one way or the other. He was blessed with immense talent, but really didnt care about winning or losing, or playing by some sort of "game plan". He jsut wanted to get out there and sling it all over and show off that release and cannon for an arm.

 

Too bad because his physical skills were off the charts.

In defense of Rex being extended, Cowher coached for 14 years before winning it all.  While Cowher's coaching record is off the charts, his mark as an all-time great coach would have been marred without winning the big one.  Idzik MUST change the structure of the offense for Rex to have a chance to succeed.
