JET FANS ARE AMAZING

Can we stop criticizing fans who go to the games? Some want to watch the jets regardless, some already Paid for them with psls. Some are bringing family or their kids for a Sunday outing. The couple hundred of you who feel you not going will send some “message” to ownership don’t know much about football revenue or the Johnson family in general

How would I know that? Have you never seen an ankle injury that a player plays on (in the game it happens), and then it swells and gets sore after that game and they miss several weeks?
Happens all the time. THAT is your farce? Yikes.

Yeah, injured athletes never say they feel "great", and then the medical teams pumps the brakes and advises caution. 

The whole walking boot was a ruse too. 

Jets should really just throw caution to the wind and throw out their supposed franchise qb. 

BTW, with that tweet, you blew up your whole premise anyway. He admitted he was "injured"

TV revenue assures all owners profit 

It's highly unlikely that a bunch of no shows will impact Chris if losing to the browns and getting blown out by the bills didn't 

I understand someone not going 

However going to the colts game reminded me that the best part of football is sharing it with people and having a catch not whining about draft picks on the internet 

So if someone wants to share the GameDay experience with another Jets fan that's nothing to take issue with 

Get a life

Hard to root for an organization that isnt honest with the fanbase. This Darnold stuff is absurd. No one is buying this injury. You can do this when you;re winning.

Why is it so hard to believe he is legitimately injured? He will be back for the Titans game next week, his foot was getting better this week.  The Jets are smart not to play him till he is 100%.

Thanks, TMAC, but just to set the record straight once the new stadium deal was done it is not Giant stadium, it is Met Life stadium and I would say equal between the 2 teams since even though the Giants have had some additional SBs compare to the Jets, they really haven't been a better team over the recent past.

It will never be our stadium.

I agree this sounds like bullsh*t to me. He isn’t hurt they just don’t want him to die on the field.  While I agree with the move I’d prefer the josh gives us the best chance to win crap.

Dying on the field the first half of the season was ok. Just dying on the field the last 2 games had to be avoided.

I just made a tee time for 1pm on the dot. 

Why?  Because I want to enjoy my Sunday.  This last Sunday, I played 18 holes in the morning and surfed for 3 hours in the afternoon.  It was great.

the one good thing about the jets being bad is being able to enjoy nice fall sunday afternoons.  i used to waste so much time watching them and then needing to decompress for a day or so.

Well for me, I only waste the time watching since there’s no need to decompress afterwards. Having the lowest expectation right out of the gate, makes games so much more relaxed, even comical.

I’m an analytics man, myself. I rely on concretes. I see a 21 year old QB who is ostensibly supposed to be the leader of the team in the very near future suited up and standing around at practice—but not playing in the games due to an alleged injury that he, himself, says he doesn’t have—and I view this as a huge mistake. I think it emasculates him in front of the team and, if he’s complicit in sitting out, is something that will stick to him. Your quarterback has to play hurt, because he’s always going to be hurt by Week 11. The most benign explanation is that Bowles is a chickensh*t trying to pad his resume with a cheap win on the way out the door and is using Darnold’s foot as an excuse to play McCown. The terminal-doom scenario is that Darnold is being a puss. There really is no good explanation for holding him out and, as usual, the Jets organization’s messaging on it is a disaster. 

First, Matt said he was not hurt at all. 

Secondly, I do not believe that a "win" is going to pad Bowles' stats at this point. It seems to be beyond that. He is smart enough for that (yes!), and knows the game and the score. 

Third, we all saw McCown play last week. Does anyone really believe that he gives the Jets a better shot at "winning"?

Lastly, for football fans to question the  machismo of a rookie that has sustained regular beatings on a weekly basis, I think is pretty cowardice on those fan's part. If he was in fact a "puss" he would not be saying he feels "great" and would be using excuses to mask his want to not be in there (see Markel Fultz).

Sometimes, it is not the team that disappoints me, but the fans. Not that these fans have had to endure bad eggs, but to question a kid's heart that has had no previous episodes of such actions, is frankly bush league in my book.

When the organization gives you nothing, fans are going to speculate. A vague injury that appears after a 4 interception game, these things get thrown out there. Nothing malicious about it. Bowles was on the record saying he could have been the backup two weeks ago- yet he's still inactive? Why not play Davis Webb then?

Being this buttoned up while going 4-12 after consecutive 5-11 seasons...yeah you lose the benefit of the doubt.

edit, also this was Bowles 3 days after the Miami game:

Give me the reason Sam Darnold isn’t playing football this weekend.

He is injured and not 100%, and the Jets are at least erring on the side of caution.

Just like the multitude of other injuries this club has had-They don't talk about them with the public.

That you label a kid a "puss" just because you do not have all the facts and feel entitled to those facts, when you are not , is a little sad.
