Oh those Jets ... 


You know you're in trouble when you're mentioned on the floor of the US Congress as an example of bad management: [VIDEO]

Would love to post this stuff on the Jets board, ... but "there's a chance" they wouldn't see the humor right now. - Not to mention I'd probably get banned for two lifetimes - at least.

Jets release Kahlil Bell, fueling more Braylon Edwards speculation

OK, so it looks like Rexy still thinks they have a shot at post-season if he's making roster moves.

The Edwards pick-up would be a wise move on the JeJeJets part but lets face it,  Rexy may be Sexy but he is still gone after this season.   

And the fact that Sanchise and Teblow are still there means that Edwards will never see the ball.

Can't catch the ball if its not thrown to you and you can't run with it if you don't catch it.  Teblow can't throw it and Sanchize can only see half the field.

Rex says his fate isn't tied to Sanchez's but I don't think anyone believes that. Including Rex. That whole organization made the mistake of buying into Rex's hype before they actually accomplished anything besides getting into the playoffs.

Sanchez may not be a HOF qb, (to be polite) - but there's absolutely NO WAY he's responsible for that teams problems. - From a couple of articles I read earlier this year, (if true) - there's a LOT of "front office stuff" going on almost daily.

Re: Oh those Jets ... 


Between the FO and Rexy and the "characters" they together have assembled, the results on the field are no surprise. Sanchez has done his best to be the QB and a team leader. There's certainly no lack of effort there, and he's quietly taken the blame for problems which aren't his or of his making.

If they do clean house, they're going to suck bad for a few years while a new coach and GM put in a whole new program. And they kind of have to - they don't have a QB, they have 1 young WR who's a development project, they have a couple decent RB's, and Revis. That's about it.

Gonna be interesting to see who's in line for Rex's job - or who even wants it. Bad enough being HC for a dysfunctional team, but then you also have to motivate the team knowing the best you can do is a wild-card because BB and the Pats are right up the road.

The Jets brought Braylon back. Claimed him off waivers, veteran minimum pay for 3 games.

> "Sanchez may not be a HOF qb, (to be polite) - but there's absolutely NO WAY he's responsible for that teams problems."

I agree.  Sanchez has actually played very well in stretches.  His problem is with consistency, and not with being incapable or lacking talent.

But the Jets had some big, big injuries this year.  Had they not lost some key players, then they might have 2 more wins and 2 less losses now.  Maybe even 3.  That would be a big difference.   So on paper they were definitely a possibility for The Playoffs this season.

The fact that with all their problems, they could still end up going .500 is worth making note of.  But I think they'll still end up falling just short of that ....

I agree to an extent. Revis is a fantastic player and a huge loss.  Holmes had issues this year and was sent to the bench last year because of his attitude.  It's quite possible that a healthy Holmes would have created another issue for Sanchez and added another controversy about whether his attitude in the huddle was worth his talent.  I think Revis would add wins but I'm not quite sure about Holmes.

Re: Oh those Jets ... 




  This injury issue is BULL!! Injuries happen to EVERY team in the NFL period!!

  Players get hurt,that's why the rosters are as large as they are.They probably should be larger.

  I'll go out on a limb here and say that the Pats would not have been as successful over the past 10-12 years if they had gotten these high picks and had to pay big $$ accordingly.

  You need to have very very deep talent to compete all year in this brutal environment.I actually believe because the Pats usually draft so far down in the order,they get to spend less on a few individuals,and more on depth talent.

  Say what you will about the Jets,but when they started signing superstars,they reaped rewards initially,but are now paying the price by not having the bench strength to compete all season long.

  And finally,if this guy didn't get hurt or that guy didn't pull a hammy,and blah,blah, blah,then everybody might have beaten everybody else.Are you sh#*ting me??

Re: Oh those Jets ... 


BB and the Pats pretty well defuse the "if it wasn't for injuries" argument. They went 11-5 without Brady. They're 10-3 without Gronk and Branch for half the season. They won a SB with a guy named "Earthwind" and Troy Brown at DB. If you build a deep roster, you can absorb injuries and press on. When you spend all your money a few high priced FA's and Sanchez, you can't.

The Jets maximized those no-cap seasons and hoped to upset the Pats by loading up on FA's. It didn't work, and now they're back to what they were. Possibly worse because a bunch of good players from Mangini's watch have left.

What continues to amaze me is that the Pats blueprint has been on display for over a decade. And yet most teams still buy into the allure of building a team around a few super-stars and then a steep drop-off in talent everywhere else.

It'll be interesting to see if they keep Rex or not. On one hand, players like playing for him (those who stayed, anyway). On the other hand, they don't play consistently well for him. If it weren't for his ego, Rex would probably be happier as a DC.

I think that there's a saying "don't interupt your foe in the middle of a mistake."  I'm tempted to say "Yep, it's the injuries, let Mark start next year with Revis and Holmes back" even though last year wasn't exactly a big success either.

Barstool Top 5 Worst Moments Of The New York Jets Season

Last night the New York Jets took a [dump] on national TV for like the 3rd time this season. The game was an abomination. An embarrassment. A mockery. With their unrealistic pipe dreams of a playoff appearance on the line, they came out and played their worst game of the year against a putrid 4-10 Titans team and let their season die. Whats worse – Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan’s career’s were possibly on the line and both of them put up their worst performance of the season. Yes, I understand its hard to pinpoint one performance as the worst when there was so many to choose from. So many awful, pathetic and embarrassing moments in a downright pathetic season. Here are the 5 worst: [link]

I agree 100%. In Sanchez's first two years he brought the Jets to the playoffs including an upset of the Patriots in the playoffs. Last year, he had 26 TD's to 18 INT's, and a completion percentage of 56%. Not awesome, but not too bad really. This year, they have a ton of injuries, a crappy offensive line and weak receivers, to go along with a mediocre running game. And, to top it off, Tim Tebow waiting in the wings, for whatever reason. Last night, Sanchez had a couple of nice drives back to back, so what do the Jets do? Take him out and bring in Tebow for the Wildcat. Dumb, dumb and dumb. The problem is in the front office. Sanchez CAN'T win in New York, especially with Tebow there. He needs a new location and I think he will be a much better QB.

Sparano loves the Wild Cat Crap. Rexy gushed over him when they signed the guy. I think most of us were like: "Uhhh, dude, he sucks - did nothing in MIA."

Also remember that those first couple years (a) Rex was using the players Mangina brought in as a foundation and (b) Rex was also signing a bunch of big-ticket FA's because there was no cap.

Sanchez CAN'T win in New York, especially with Tebow there. He needs a new location and I think he will be a much better QB.

Sanchez had no shot:

  1. He was thrown into the starting role on a team that was desperate for a QB and despite the fact that he had the most important position on the team and was as green as they get, his coach couldn’t wait for him  to develop and got into a bravado war with BB because his defense was very good, which drew attention to the Jets immediately turning them from what could have been a “feel good” overachieving story of them trying to knock off the Pats to either a cocky team that backed up their talk or a circus act who couldn’t keep their mouths shut.  This perception changed week to week and I think the results counter any argument that Rex was successfully taking pressure off of his players. 
  2. His head coach put all of his chips on the strategy of being well liked which made discipline decline every year as the success wasn’t maintained and players became increasingly unhappy since talking and losing makes you a laughingstock.
  3. His head coach was fascinated by raw talent to the point where he resigned Holmes to a huge 5 year deal when there were no other suitors. Holmes was then named captain, which led to him chewing out his own teammates in the media and since Holmes couldn’t be captain, nobody could.  Something that I’m sure guys like Mangold loved.
  4. His head coach tried to keep pressure off of him in the media by constantly highlighting the fact that the ground & pound and defense were going to win games which implied that the passing game was not a huge part of their strategy.  Meanwhile, they resigned him to a longer and bigger contract while (again) signing Holmes to a huge contract while leaving gaping holes in the offensive line and at running back.  They expected their fans and the media not to notice this discrepancy between what they were saying and where the salary was going and resist expecting more from the passing game because of their press conference “talking points” about how the Jet Oline and RB’s were the focus. 

 

Sanchez regressed every year and I think another team will see that and take a shot at him…which could be lucky for the Jets if they can unload his contract, because while Sanchez could be decent he’s like “Cougar” from Top Gun with the Jets.  I actually don’t mind Rex because he does take it on the chin when he doesn’t succeed and I think he could be a good head coach if he realizes that they’ve been a rebuilding offense since he’s gotten there.  He can come up with some very good defensive schemes and if they can have a functional offense, they could be a team to worry about.  I just don’t think that it’ll be next year and I kind of expect to see a Holmes vs. McElroy fight.

Mark Sanchez death threats catch NFL's attention

  • Updated: Dec. 18, 2012 at 05:56 p.m.
  • .

Because there are horrible people in the world, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez received death threats from a Twitter user following a poor performance against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.
.

NFL Exposure

.

How does the Jets' situation compare to these other high profile QB changes?
.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Tuesday the league is aware of the threats and that NFL security has followed up with Jets to assist. Aiello told NFL.com this is standard procedure in cases such as this.
.

Sanchez has faced a mountain of criticism as he's struggled through a difficult season. The Jets announced Tuesday that Greg McElroy would start in Sanchez's place on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.
.

Sanchez threw four interceptions in a 14-10 loss to the Titans that eliminated the Jets from postseason contention. He has 50 turnovers since the start of the 2011 season, more than any player in the NFL.
.

Of course, that doesn't mean his physical well-being should be threatened because of it. Dumb, dumb, dumb.
.

.
Death threats is a tad nuts, - it's football, sports entertainment, not real life.

Sanchez is done in NY. Which is probably best for everyone concerned. Maybe with a fresh start with a coach who knows how to develop a QB, he'll develop into something not-horrible.

Even the Huffington Post is piling on the Jets ... which we all knew would happen once the losing started ...

Tim Tebow and the New York Jets: The Final Insult


...

After Sanchez and the Jets suffered an embarrassing loss on national television Monday night against the Tennessee Titans, Head Coach Rex Ryan informed Sanchez that he was benched for the remainder of the season. On Tuesday, Ryan then announced that third string quarterback Greg McElroy would come off the inactive list to start in front of Tebow.


Loyalty and trust is everything in team sports, and in life. Tebow showed his teammates and his coaching staff unconditional loyalty, and endured more disrespect than any player I've ever seen.


And all Tebow got in return was to be humiliated one last time.


This public humiliation of a man who deserved it the least will not be the legacy of Tebow. It will be the legacy of Rex Ryan.

Re: Oh those Jets ... 


Watching Sanchez play the other night, you can almost see in his face that he knows he's not a good QB.  Sure the Jets season isn't all on him, there wasn't a lot of good on that team this year, but still when you're lofting off balance passes into coverage in the red zone when there's really no pressure and you must win the game, then I don't think anyone can expect much better than what he is.

I think he needs to go the way of Matt Leinart and become a journeyman backup QB for as long as he can.

One has to wonder how much of his self-doubt comes from being in that organization. Put him in another system and he may be an average starter.

The Pats sure had their years of being bad, but I've never seen a fiasco like this year's Jets.
