.....

Matt Leinart should be the Jets quarterback. The Cardinals rookie provided

further

evidence Friday night why the Jets made a mistake by first passing on him in

the draft and then not offering enough to move back up to get him

when they had the chance. He complete 12 consective passes in Chicago,

including 10 for 10 on back to back scoring job.Meanwhile, Chad Pennington

continues to

show mariginal arm strength, rookie Kellen Clemes was 3 for 11 against the

Giants and OT

D'Brickashaw Ferguson was benched for almost two quarters after being

penalized for two false starts

Friday nights.

It is the age old debate. Let's go back to the Dan Marino discussion. How great would Dan have been had he played for the Jets?

Not sure if Gary noticed but Matt has a weapon or two in Arizona.

Marino throwing to Toon, Walker and Shuler? I'd have taken my chances, but I have no complaints with the Ken O'Brien pick.

OTOH, I think Gary Meyers is an idiot.

IMO he's got 4.

Boldin

Fitzgerald

Edge

Bryant Johnson...this guy isn't a bad #3 WR at all.

It's one man's opinion. Whether it is any more informed or agenda slanted, I could not say.

In that regard it's a good article. Leinart hits and in five years he can pull this out of his ass and say "I told you so." Same thing with guys touting Young and Cutler or Jaworski with Clemens. It's a little early to rate any of them beyond where they went in the draft. Barton constantly ripping Chad has a better chance of success because our offense will undoubtedly be bad no matter who is at the helm.

I liked Walt Michaels, but hated Joe W. I was pissed when they dumped Walt. If Walton didn't have some good defensive coordinators we'd have been totally dead. I thought Walton was the worst. Then we hired Kotite...

Kenny might have had a chance if he had played for Walt. Unfortunately he never saw a snap with him as the head coach.

I find it amusing he writes this when most experts agree almost to a man that you judge the success of a draft after 3 seasons.

Gary has it all figured out after 3 pre season games.

I respect Myers's opinion. Hes high on Leinart.

Dan Marino would have done JUST FINE (lol) on the Jets. Anyone who says otherwise is clueless.

...I dont think Leinart is made for the east coast. I think hes a perfect West Coast QB (not system...but weather). On the Jets he'd play 8 games in the windy Meadowlands, 1 at Buff, 1 at New England. Thats 10 games a year.

Out west, 8 games in the desert, a couple of dome games. Leinart will be solid. Clemens better be!

Leinart, although not happy that he dropped, with Arizona's Wr's, Edgerrin James, Warm climate, and Kurt Warner ahead of him (albeit temporarily), he couldn't have ended up in a better scenario for him to succeed, which may drive us Jets fans crazy for years.

I believe the Jets were right in drafting D'Brickashaw, although I remember seeing it mentioned that the Jets were talking about packaging their 1st & 2nd for Leinart at 10

to those people who are second guessing the decision not to draft linehardt. are forgetting some things.

1. jay cutler has outperformed linehardt

2. it preseason

3. he's playing against second stringers.

4. he's playing in a dome in nice warm conditions with no wind.

5. nobody questions his skills it's his arm strength that worry some people i wanna see him play in chicago or medowlands.

Amen to that. I'm convinced these people are more Mangini fans than Jets fans. They like Eric Mangini - Mike Tan so much and want so bad to see them succeed that they will find any excuse or rationalization for their mistakes. Even passing over a franchise QB for an Offensive Tackle we could have easily had at 29 or 35.
