With Petty hurt and Hackenberg functionally incompetent who do they bring in?


Recommended Posts

Jets o-line is terrible so McCown's old bum is probably getting hurt at some point.  Petty is already hurt.  Hackenberg is certainly not at a point right now where you can throw him into regular season game action.  They need a body and that body might actually have to play.

Look I don't really think Kap's style of play is ideally what I want out of a QB, but is there a better option at this point.

I'm going to say this, and not in my capacity as a bitter ****: it would be such a sweet eff you to the Jets if Petty is out for the year after showing signs he could be a legitimate QB prospect. Macc

Preordering my RG3 jersey to put next to Favre and Sanchez 

Anybody but Kap

First of all, we don't know what the story is with Petty's knee yet.

As for Kaep, no way we can bring him in.  He's probably just good enough to win 4-5 games and that is definitely the worst case scenario.  I'd rather bring in Josh Freeman off the street and do this thing right.

Probably wait to find out how hurt Petty is.  If he needs some ice and a beer, no need to bring anyone in.  If he's gonna' miss time, then go grab another scrap heap QB.

He walked off the field under his own power, right? If he did then he'll start

Not sure that's a solid inference.  ACL tears can walk, for example.  So can other injuries that ultimately sideline a player for weeks or more.  We'll have to wait.

I'd think either of the Giants Qbs who get cut: Josh Johnson or Geno. But Petty might be ok. Based on what Bowles said and didn't say (which was basically everything) during his presser I think he'll name McCown the starter and has been intentionally not playing him to avoid injury. Which if they're doing it is smart.

Agreed ..l don't get the feed of the game down south here ... So I haven't seen the play Petty got hurt on yet ... Did he do any start-stop trying to change direction type of move?

i did my ACL years ago like that ... I could still walk off the field like normal ... But I KNEW it was bad

fingers crossed that wasn't what happened

Sorry to hear about that.  My daughter tore hers last April just by landing badly from a jump playing volleyball.  No contact at all.  She's rehabbing now but she'll miss the entire fall season and probably part of the spring one in a huge year for her team.  Really, really awful injury.  Definitely hoping that wasn't it.

I want to see Hack play the whole game against Philly.  He needs the reps and I hope Petty is ok.  If Petty is healthy, he should be our starter.

Why? Haven't you seen enough? The kid is awful and he's hard to watch.

Yeah he tried to move laterally and couldn't do it. Then he had a look like he was sick to his stomach while trying to smile.

I've seen a lot of injuries and I'm sorry but I'd put his odds at 15% that he's not out for the year.

I'm actually for Hack starting all 16 games -- because it insures Mac and Bowles getting fired and us getting the #1 pick

So we gave Sanchez and Geno more than enough chances but Hack a known project gets cut after two games?

Total absentee idiot owner

Unfortunately I'm used to rooting for teams with idiot owners. Mets, Jets, Knicks. Can the owners and FO's be any worse? What did I do to deserve this?

The Wilpons gave all their money to Madoff because he was supposedly "respectable."  Dolan at least wants to win and will spend the money he just doesn't know how to
