Who Do We Sign To Back Up Falk?

Recommended Posts

If Siemen can't go next week, we need a backup.  What's Bryce Petty doing these days?

Good call, I especially like the Jets singing a player called Fales at QB very Jets.

Yes, his name is the icing on the cake. A gift for the beat writers.

Brock Osweiler maybe? Played under Gase last season at Miami

He would probably want to start though. And I don't want him to start. Stick with Falk, and sign him a backup.

Didn't we have a guy in preseason who was halfway decent?  I think he had been on our PS or maybe tried out with us last season?  Possibly his first name was John ?

John Wolford?  Was with us in preseason last year, made the PS, then got cut when Davis Webb was signed.

Looked very good in that other league that lasted 10 minutes before folding.  Now on the Rams' PS, I think.

That's the guy.  Didn't realize he went to the Rams.

No one over the age of 28, preferably.

No ancient veterans.  Just sign another prospect, BAP at this point.

It's not like we're trying to save a playoff run here.

Kyle Sloter has had very good pre-season's to date and is on the Cardinals practice squad.  Would be a fine developmental player and see what he can do.

i don't care who they get as long as falk is allowed to start.  he did well enough and showed some good poise.  the stats are misleading though because the browns were basically playing prevent in the 4th qtr.

With Brees and Rape-Burger going out I assume there is going to be some competition... 

but seriously the most obvious is signing Webb off Bills PS... 

But another direction is:

Brett Rypien, Clayton Thorston, Lauletta, Wolford, Cardale Jones... All players on PS of other teams that the Jets could sign to the active roster.... because I am sure Siemian is going on IR.

Who cares what Osweiler would want?  He's in no position to make demands.

He has a reputation for being a bit of an agitator where he doesn't start. I don't want a guy like that behind Franchise Falk.

That's why you tell him beforehand he's being signed as the backup for a temporary period.  If he doesn't like it, he can go kick rocks.

Upon further reflection bring in Vinny T’s kid. Would be so deliciously Jetsy.

David Fales, who was with Gase in Miami for 2 years, is probably arriving on a Jet plane as we speak.

No point in trading for a guy who will take months to adjust to the scheme. Roll with Falk, and sign a Fales as his backup.

Fales, Falk and Ficken --- LET'S GO!!!

I was thinking about Bryce Petty who was with Miami part of last year. Not sure what Gase thinks about him he obviously chose Falk over him. Petty is right now not with any team. They could take a player like Davis Webb who is on Buffalo's PS.

If I gave you 10,000 to 1 odds on a $5,000 bet that said you would type that after week two, you would have passed. LOL, crazy though. The season changes so damn fast. Let's go Falk.

I think I would let Bilal Powell play QB before Petty.

I liked Brandon Silvers who played on Memphis of the AAF and a guy we signed and cut. And Wolford but he was with another FO. He's on the Rams PS.
