Marrone brought the Jags to 9-4 today.  A tough gritty team who already knows how to win (notwithstanding a crappy QB).  He also helped the Jets draft position by beating the Seahawks today.  

Would've been nice to have hime as HC.  Thanks Mehta.

 

 

Nah, they should be good with all of those high draft picks and in a division without any great teams.  That defense is nasty and it's not because of Marrone.  It's because of the high draft picks and the money they splurged on free agents.  

As long as Tom Brady is Tom Brady and the Jets don't have a QB, it's going to be like this.

Lol. Marrone. Whatever that guy is Caughlin’s puppet and that team has been loading up on defense. Lots of high picks.

Our d is all high picks and it sucks.

Not like Jacksonville.  They've been picking in the top five since 2012 and in the top 10 for the last ten years.  

Shad Khan is also a lot more competent than Woody.

Marrone is thought to have opted out from Buffalo with an understanding he would replace Rex Ryan here. But Mehta wrote an article that said basically Marrone when he was the OL coach under Herman Edwards or at Syracuse was not a nice guy. It was not well-sourced nor had many details, only  Mehta said Marrone was a bad guy who gave out crappy candy on Halloween or didn't return his phone calls or some other pantywaist nonsense BS. And the Johnsons rather than sticking to the plan backed out and began ANOTHER WORLDWIDE COACH BESTEST SEARCH. 

For all of the supposed $ and brain power the Johnsons have at their disposal instead they listen more to one beat writer who knows nothing about football. AND THE PROBLEM IS THE FANS? RIGHT.

Oh stop. Jacksonville has been trash since the inception of that franchise. 

Huh? They’ve been to two AFCGs and had multiple playoff appearances besides that in only 22 years of existence

Khan has been the owner since 2012.  It didn't take him long to figure it out, huh?  Not surprised, given his background versus Woody's.

So no credit to Marrone? How did the same team do last year under Gus Bradley? 

What about credit to Tom Coughlin for drafting Fournette,Cam Robinson and signing Bouye?

this is what happens when the media and fans go on a crusade about things they know nothing about.  it's why teams should never listen to the fans and media.  Jax has been building for a while now, you could see it coming and it's all come together this year.

What does Brady think every time he hears about us reaching for a first round defensive player?

What counts as a while?  Coughlin had a very good draft and signed a legit #1 CB so we should now be happy with waiting another 10 years for Macagnan to figure it out?

oh now Coughlin gets all the credit?  they have 3 1st yr Jags starters on offense and one of them is Tommy Bohanon and 3 on defense.  Yes he made some good moves and has a couple of nice draft picks but the team and yes he deserves some credit but please don't give it all to him.  That team was loaded w/ young talent.  They acquired some nice vets to go w/ them but he didn't walk into some awful situation.  It was more like Parcells coming here, the franchise had talent they just needed direction.

Smart fans are correct more often than, or at least as often as, (our) GMs.

Truly, I know a number of fans who:

(Off the top of my head)

1. Never would have drafted geno, Petty, Pryor, Hill, ducasse, boar hunter

2. Would have never given real money to: Wilkerson, Sanchez, Harris, Fitzpatrick, Holmes, 

3. Would have kept: Damon Harrison over Wilkerson. 

The list goes on. Smart fans get some wrong too, for sure. But GMs are just as bad if not worse.

If you are talking about you average Jets fan who doesn’t follow any CFB, and rarely sees other teams play, then sure — they are clueless.

If you’re talking about people who pay attention on a larger scale, their opinion can be pretty damn good, pretty damn often.

Refresh my memory.....didn't we beat the Jags this year? 

Barley, McCown tried to give that game away. Powell had that lucky TD because no Jag touched him. I know its part of the game but that play 99% of the time doesn't happen. The Jags have also played better since they have played us and I think they beat us if we played again and probably easily.
