its not crazy to think you would have won a game with your best QB instead of your 3rd best.

same things some of you said about our 2 losses. if we had Zach instead of the statue we could have won. 

But would he have been more than a 3 TD difference?

That might be pushing it.

We'll never know. Tua did throw 4 TDs in the 4th quarter vs. Baltimore to overcome a 35-14 deficit. 

Consider that all 3 of our TDs in the 4th quarter all came on failed Miami drives that gave us shorter fields. Prior to those 3 consecutive failed Miami drives it was a 2-point game. The Jets TD before that also game after a momentum-shifting interception that Tua might not have thrown there.

Granted they'd have still had to actually do it against us with Tua instead of awarding him a victory for a game he missed, but it's not really far-fetched. We may not have had that 3 TD lead in the first place if Miami wasn't down to a 3rd string rookie QB.

Screw them anyway. We've lost how many starting tackles this year, so shoulda-woulda-coulda. Even with Tua they were 2 plays away from entering this game at 1-3. You don't take this victory away from the Jets any more than you take those away from Miami.

Also eff them, lol.

I don't think the Ravens have our secondary that's now starting to play consistently well. At the end of the year the Jets secondary will be in the conversation with the top 5 secondary's in the NFL.

They didn’t lose because of Skylar. He actually played pretty well and got them some key PI’s to advance drives

you know i agree with you, then i look at Tua stats.

109. QBR..... 2nd in NFL.

69.8 comp %...... 3rd in NFL

Thompson in comparison yesterday had a 57 % comp and a 58.4 QBR

thats a huge difference.

You missed the point of the thread. The entire fan base was begging for skylar to start over teddy when tua went down. They got what they wished for and when it didn’t work made it an excuse.

I frankly don't care. Let them think that - many here would have said the same thing had it happened to us. I would imagine when the power rankings come out, they will use that excuse to have them ranked high. Every year, they talk about how Miami is the next powerhouse in our division. Now, the talk is all about their HC. Who knows - with or without Tua, it is hard to know how good a team is this early in the season. You can tell that a team is struggling, but wins are tough to gage as you don't really know how good the opponents are - I was thrilled when we beat the Steelers, but of course they are a 1 win team; Cleveland is also on a slide.

Personally,  I thought Thompson played well for a rookie debut.

Game didn't look too big for him.

He looked better than Zach did in his first year.

Good luck to the young man.

He did everything well except pass the ball. Because everytime he dropped back the Jets had a chance at an INT.

Thank you. It pisses me off how often slurs against myself and others from the LGBT community are casually thrown around here. I think some people would rather gay people not be fans of football, the Jets or JN.

Edit: thank you @The Crusher for changing the title. ?️‍?

No problem man. Yet, I honestly read it the first time without picking up on it until someone brought it up in the thread. Guess we all have a way to go,
