Help Us Crown the Best Jets Action Photo of 2011

Posted by Randy Lange on January 18, 2012 – 11:47 am

There are many ups and many downs to every NFL season, and many of those undulations by the Jets in their recently concluded season were captured mid-wave by our team photographer, Al Pereira, the lensman with the steadiest sea legs out there on the sidelines.

OK, enough with the ocean metaphor. We asked Al to riffle through the photographic Rolodex in his head and come up with, oh, the 22 best action photos from this season. Those photos are on the slideshow that is now live on the newyorkjets.com Fanzone section.

And now we turn it over to you, the most visually discerning fans in the game, and ask you to help us select the Best Jets Action Photo of ’11. And we’ve broken this contest into two parts for your enjoyment. Today we present the contest semifinals.

Those 22 photos, displayed in chronological order, can be viewed up close and personal by clicking on each shot in the slideshow. Take your time to savor each photo. Then vote. Alongside the photo display are five dropdown menus. In each menu, you can vote for one of the 22 semifinal frames. Vote for up to five of your favorite images, then click Submit.

We’ll end the semis, tabulate the results, and begin the finals all next Monday morning, when the five images that you’ve selected as the best of Al’s best will be shown alongside each other one more time. Then you’ll vote for your most favorite photo.

The voting in the finals will end Friday, Jan. 27, at noon ET, with the winning action photo unveiled shortly after.

And so we declare the Jets’ Best Action Photo of 2011 under way. Below is A.Pereira with some little background on his selection process and a skinny on each of his terrific 22. And send us a comment to the Radar on any or all of the photos here if you like. And now, here’s Al …

I’ve never found myself thinking in terms of Rod Stewart lyrics before. Honestly! But when my good friend and venerable Radar Ranger Randy Lange told me of the plans to put this “Best Jets Action Photo of ’11” contest together, I immediately started hearing “Every Picture Tells a Story” ringing through my head. And you know, in a GOOD way. Rod the Mod was on to something, maybe.

Every picture does tell a story, and the following photos will hopefully speak to you of some of the high points of the season that just finished. These are some of my favorite action shots … we’ll assemble another gallery soon, to include shots like these and also some of the behind-the-scenes views, portraits and other little gems.

For now, I feel honored to present this collection, where you can tell me which you like the best. With a few thoughts for each photo, here is my Best Jets Action Photo of ’11 gallery. Hope you like it!

1. Revis INT Return — I like Darrelle’s eyes in this shot. He makes the pick in the opener against Dallas and becomes a running back … sweet!

2. Folk Game-Winner —  Big moment from an emotional night, 9/11/11, and Nick Folk wins it vs. the Cowboys. Not sure who looks happier, but it may be Brunell.

3. Scott Sack — Bart smacking the ball loose on a sack against the Jaguars. Like that you can see where his right hand made the strip … and in a Titans uni to boot!

4. Sanchez Intensity — Love the look on Mark’s face at Oakland. I have a lot of these kinds of shots. He’s a real leader. That “C” looks good. And like the logo on his mouthguard.

5. Sanchez TD — When Mark gets close to the goal line, he’s a juggernaut. My favorite Sanchez TD this year, Superman coming in low vs. Miami …

6. Harris Crunch — I like David burying QBs, which he does quite often. This one resulted in another Revis INT.

7. Mangold Point — Nick is also a strong leader. You can see he’s all business here against the Chargers.

8. Wilson INT — This is a cool interception shot in the SD game. Those are tricky to get because, well, if they were easy to anticipate, QBs would go the other way! Kyle Wilson’s first of his career and you can see the intended receiver’s frustration behind this athletic pick.

9. Holmes TD — Speaking of athletic, Santonio makes plays all the time that almost make me stop shooting just to admire them. Almost. If I did I wouldn’t have been able to catch a great TD like this at Buffalo as he twists through three defenders. That’s “Tone Time” all over!

10. Slauson TD — Matt at Denver. A guard scoring and spiking?? Enough said!

11. ST Gang Tackle — Kickoff coverage swarms over Cassius Vaughn at Denver. Love these kinds of gang shots. You can see how special teams is a real group effort.

12. Pace Pressure — Calvin doesn’t get enough chatter from fans, in my opinion. Nice effort in harassing a QB that had a pretty good year.

13. Keller TD Jam — Dustin is really a great player, great dude, and an even better subject. Good air on the TD spike here at home against Buffalo.

14. Burress Wingspan — Big play by a big receiver in the big home game vs. the Bills. Plax makes it look easy.

15. Sanchez Windup — Good form and a strong look from No. 6 as he gets ready to fire at Washington.

16. Greene Tightrope — Beautiful effort by Shonn at the pylon vs. the Chiefs. High-flying Jet!

17. Pouha Sack — Sione really came on as a leader this year. And he is just eating KC’s Tyler Palko alive!

18. Burress Stretch — One more from Plax, and the prettiest TD of the year, in my opinion — a one-hander at Philadelphia. We liked it so much you can pick the sequence up as Wallpaper if you’d like.

19. Harris Takedown — I like Eli Manning, I really do. Like him best when we’re knocking him around, though. Here David Harris, with assist from Bart Scott, jar the ball loose, but Eli was ruled down by contact. Hmmm…

20. Wilkerson Sack — My favorite sack of the year, from the rookie DE. Eli does NOT look happy here!

21. Keller Reach — Another day, another play for Dustin. He takes it to another level in the red zone at Miami.

22. Cromartie INT — Was happy to capture this one. A real battle for the ball the Dolphins’ Brian Hartline — and a fine pick as the Cro flies!

    For all of the guys wanting Matt Flynn after 1 good game here are 2 things. 1 CBS analyst Charley Casserly believes free agent Matt Flynn isn’t a good fit for the Redskins and will be an average QB unless he’s in a system similar to the Packers’ west coast offense roots.”I think [Flynn] in this system he plays in is really good,” said Casserly.”So Cleveland, Seattle, if Joe Philbin ends up with a head job in Miami. I’m not sure if it’s exactly the same thing the Redskins want in their system. I’m not sure if everything they’re doing right now is some of the things he’s good at.” It goes without saying that the Packers also have an embarrassment of offensive riches compared to the Redskins 2 This guy could not beat out Jamrcus Russell at LSU

    Spicer only you can come up with this nonsense!!!!!!!!!! Matt Flynn throws for 480 yards and 6 TD’s against a desperate playoff team and divisional opponent….and it’s the system???????????
    Your boy Sanchez has never ever ever come close to doing anything like that ever!!!!!!!!!!!
    Last year he throws 3 td’s and almost beats the Pats at home and it’s the system??????????…..Spicer go back to Disney World!
    WE NEED MATT FLYNN I want nothing to do with Henne hear that TanWoody. get a QB in here that actually has a chance to be an elite QB and a franchise QB.
    AND WHILE YOUR AT IT FIRE REX AND BRING IN PHILBIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    why is it when the picks are announced,what we gave up for schladeraff and what we got for Lowery the jets will come up on the short end.considering that we constantly move up in the draft and give picks away,maybe this management team wasn’t bargaining for the best deal possible.

  4. By GaryC on Jan 18, 2012 | Reply

    thank you, tom spicer, I said that awhile ago that Flynn did not beat out Russell and I believe Scjoe took me to task on that one.Same thing with wayne hunter, the guy looked great playing sporadically until he had to play all the time,Defiencies play out with more time.

    Sorry, Randy, I nominate a photo of Rex chest-bumping with Holmes after that TD — it would illustrate everything that’s wrong with our HC.

    Spicer your an absolute fool. The Giants wanted Eli in the worst way and the Chargers had the first pick so what do they do?????????They pick Eli and trade him to the Giants gets extra picks and then select Rivers which was the SMART thing to do. Meanwhile as Rivers rode the bench and Brees arm fell apart in his free agency year the Chargers opted to let him go (damaged goods) and the rest is history. Brees was the 10th rated QB his last year with the Chargers and was a very accurate passer SOMETHING YOU CAN BUILD ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Sanchez who had the #1 D and #1 rushing attack STUNK IT UP. Big Ben went 13-3 with that kind of formula his first year for gods sake. Sanchez stinks his QB ratings show it…. stop the nonsense!!!!

  7. By Frank on Jan 18, 2012 | Reply

    Lastly Spicer….Matt Flynn in 4 years has a 92 passer rating and a 62% completion percentage. SOMETHING YOU CAN BUILD ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Spicer, problem with you comparing Flynn to JaMarcus Russell: it isn’t college anymore, Flynn’s had time to learn. Also, its not off of “just one game”, he had a solid performance against New England last year, or did you conveniently forget that? Its funny how you will rail against Matt Flynn but you will defend MS to the death. Bitter irony.

    ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on SportsCenter Wednesday that Peyton Manning “will not push back” his $28 million roster bonus and will either stay with the Colts or be released by the Colts. Per Schefter, the sides are dug in. Owner Jim Irsay isn’t going to trade Manning, and Manning won’t restructure his contract to allow the Colts to get something in return. The $28 million bonus is due on March 8. Irsay is staunch in his commitment to pay Manning if he’s healthy, but he’s going to have to receive medical clearance from neck surgery in order to see the money. There a chance that he gets released on March 7th & will be a free agent to sign with anyone he wants on March 13th when free agency starts.

    Grass is always greener………Been said a bazillion times, when a team’s QB disappoints, anyone else looks good…..GQ needs comp, so if bringing in someone like Flynn to compete for a job is possible, nothing is wrong with that Spicer. When you’re no longer hungry, you might not try as hard. GQ hasn’t had to compete for a while. Might be part of his reason for being such a slow starter. Gotta light a fire under him. His world gotta change some……………………..

    Spicer, no one knows what caliber starter Flynn will become, certainly not Charley Casserly. The only thing we have to go by is his two starts in two seasons, and in both he produced like a rabbit on steroids. As for his days at LSU? I have addressed this with some one here previously. Russell was a very good QB (at the college level) we witnessed what he could do at the pro level. Flynn on the other hand produced big time in his limited amount of starts (at the pro level) There was no way you were going to see him start at LSU over Russell, but as I stated, that is at the college level, who really cares?

  13. By scjoe on Jan 18, 2012 | Reply

    To continue Tom, I happen to believe he will get numerous offers this off season and I think he will become a more then efficient QB in this league. Besides what he showed in his two starts (both against starting defenses) and his intangibles (size, arm strength mobility etc.) I think he will turn out just fine. Unfortunately I don’t see any way we see him in green and white any time soon.

  14. By scjoe on Jan 18, 2012 | Reply

    As for the survey above Randy? I will go with #19 Harris take down of Eli, and I base that solely on who he took down.

  15. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Jan 18, 2012 | Reply

    I don’t think we should go after Peyton but after reading he’s locking horns with the Colts over his bonus, I really don’t want him. More divas, more guys obsessed with money when they already have a ton of it, and you don’t even know if they can take a hit anymore. And while I hate to burst Rex’s bubble, Peyton isn’t in Brady’s league as a leader. Brady’s likely on his way to his 4th SB and maybe his 4th SB win with a team that’s varied greatly in quality and had all kinds of injuries over the yrs. By contrast, Peyton racked up lots of wins over 10 yrs but only won a single SB and against an overrated team with a non-rated QB. Fact is, Peyton’s a bit overrated himself and his brother Eli might soon overtake him if he wins the SB this yr.

    what happened with Rex slamming down the headsets,if that didn’t justify the jet season what does.

  17. By GaryC on Jan 18, 2012 | Reply

    If Manning was the player the giants wanted,there goes my theory kicking in that the NFL looks for certain franchises to do well, so they made sure the Manning clan was happy that little eli got his wish or he might of been pouting forever like you saw him when he was drafted and put on that charger jersey.

  18. By Jimmer on Jan 18, 2012 | Reply

    Frank, when a B/U QB throws for that, it means 3 things.
    1. He’s actually pretty good.
    2. His offense is pretty good.
    3. The defense never saw it coming.

  19. By Jimmer on Jan 18, 2012 | Reply

    Gary C., had Lowery been on the team, we might still be playing. The guy flat out, made plays that changed games.. Also, starting HUnter was worse than drafting Gholston.
    Frank, the Giants got Eli, and they still have too many pass rushers. No secondary, but when you kill the qb so fast, does it matter?

I dont have a secondary Team like you but im also a football fan and like the game and like to look at it with a real perspective. At least im not sitting here and try to sell my Team the (at BEST a BACKUP) QB im secretely self confesed on this very site, rooting for. Take that Cheese Head.

    Plenty guys still want to be JETS after the hellion season. 1-2 yr deals will be had cheaply. They know we only need a pass rush, and want a ring. Osi ain’t getting one this year, but he wants one. So do others. They all know we are the only team with a backend. Every pass-rusher wants to be here. We only need the biggun, tho.
    Osi might be the missing link.

    For those of you commenting about Matt Flynn not beating out J. Russell at LSU, (spicer) that is totally redundant! Not only was that COLLEGE, but, Russell was a different player at LSU. He was playing to make money, not playing with money. There is a huge difference in a player work ethic & heart for the game when it comes to money. Some people change & don’t care about winning cause they got their payday already. Others remain true competitive athletes despite their success.

    I think LTs interview on inside the NFL speaks volumes.By calling out Rex it is a given he wont be back, and his admission that MS has been pampered by this coaching staff that offered no viable competition at that position echos what many of us on this site have been pointing out for the past two seasons. Anyone who missed the interview go to NFL.com and read the article by Dan Hanzus

    JFS 64 i answerd you on the other post and was talking about Jim Fassell, and also since Caldwell was fired how about him he used to be Mannings QB Coach. I have to agree with one of the earlyer Post where there might be a chance that they can Fix Mark, considering Jim H. did in San Francisco with Smith sometimes it works.

    Frank…… Matt Flynn had what? 92….What? 62……..What? In Backyard Footb all, the Preseason or the 3 starts he had in 4 years. Give me a Break. Spicer makes more sense then you do.

    One thing that scares me is that after the Giants won the 07 SB Woody goes and signs Favre. Now after the Giants win the 011 SB will he go sign a soon to be free agent P. Manning. That would be another bad move but i see the hand writting on the wall. Go get a real bu QB to compete vs Sanchez this summer.

    Flynn ain’t coming here to compete, he wants to start and he is gonna want big money two things we don’t have for him. He played great against the Pats because they had NO TAPE on him. Anytime a QB plays for the first time against the Pats he does great.

    Woody is a business man before he is an NFL owner, he HAS TO REALIZE that if he does’nt take the money loss and cut Holmes the money he spends on the other 52 will be wasted too! I think it would say alot more for this organization to get rid of him, something a real organization did or would do,Steelers,Giants. Any player that can fumble for a TD and then cause an Int. on the next drive, then celebrate a garbage time TD and get flagged for it and find nothing wrong with it should have been cut THEN!

    Should’ve seen this all coming from Holmes the day he signed his contract and posted that picture of himself. I do remember pleading last offseason to keep Edwards instead! Would’ve been alot cheaper too! I wonder if Holmes is the REAL reason Cotchery wanted out of here so fast out of NO WHERE wanted out.

    Some people seem to think that LT’s talking again about the problems on the Jets, now, even after he’s said to be thinking of retiring, suggests that he’s one of the anonymous vets who complained about Sanchez to begin with. While I can’t see any way of proving it, I wouldn’t rule it out. LT played similar games with Rivers, Turner, and the Chargers upon leaving them, and I suspect his babbling on about this is just his own way of convincing himself that he’s done. uncle joe, several other folks on football sites are talking about Barron as a hard-hitting impact S who could start for the Jets immediately, tell me why you’re not as enthusiastic. The games I saw him in he looked good but not great.

    FIRE REX IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If the Colts can fire Caldwell who in the last 3 years actually won an AFC Championship and 2 divisional titles YOU CAN FIRE REX!!!!!!!!!!!
    He has absolutely made this organization the laughingstock of the NFL….get’em outta here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Frank, Lastly for the 1,000,000,000 time QB rating means nothing it is based off of completion percentage & nothing else. We have gone over this OVER & OVER & OVER AGAIN. Alex Smith was the 9th ranked QB this year ARE YOU TELLING ME HE IS THE 9TH BEST QB IN THE NFL? Alex Smith had 17 TDS Mark had 32 TDS GIVE ME A BREAK! Alex Smith at best is okay. Also the Chargers got rid of Brees cause he was damaged goods REALLY? The next year he goes to the Saints & beats his career best in yards 3,500 by over 1,000 yards & throws for 4,500 yards CMON ON MAN!

    Hey Spicer, guess how many times Flacco’s been sacked in his 4 yrs? 40, 36, 32, and 31. That means the least he’s been sacked equals the most Sanchez has been sacked and the same amount that he was sacked this yr, which you keep talking about as if it was unprecedented. And Flacco gets less hype than MS despite similar or slightly better stats. Could it be that just like he’s been coddled in every other way, MS has been coddled to expect that he shouldn’t have to adjust to pass rushers? Never mind, me and Arte are starting to work up some real enthusiasm over Sparano in terms of how tough he might be on MS and how little he has to lose in doing so. And for “body language” freaks, compare Schotty’s to Sparano’s, if you need a good laugh.

    Oh, okay, DKM, Fassel and Caldwell. Well, I’ll let GaryC make the case for Fassel but I frankly don’t know about Caldwell or anyone else right now. It seems clear that Rex is gonna get one more yr, or about half a yr, to show a dramatic turnaround in the team before Woody might install Sparano as the interim HC while he decides what he really wants to do with the team. But I can tell him right now if what we’ve got is the result of his “hands-off” approach, he’d better hire a GM who knows a lot more about players and talent than Mr T. Spicer, I agree the old QB ratings are overblown in importance but the new ones measure all kinds of key stuff that’s much more indicative of how a QB actually plays. And Sanchez is DREADFUL in the new ones!

    GazyC, what a QB does on the College level is not a precursor to what he’ll do in the pros: Leaf, George, Brady…………………………………………….Not saying Flynn is answer. In fact wasn’t aware of him until recently. But now that I know of him, I think he’d be perfect comp for GQ. COMPETITION. NOT REPLACEMENT….KID REALLY NEEDS ANOTHER HOT ITEM IN HOUSE TO SPUR HIM………………NOTHING LIKE COMP TO FIND OUT IF GQ IS THE GUY OR NOT. It would be great for both QBs………………………..Some bad news for you boys. Just found out Jets cheerleaders aren’t top 5 after all. Good news, they finished ahead of Rex’s defense. They were in the top 10. I for one, want a recount.

    Jet fans have a lot in common with Met fans…always looking for the quick fix and never getting there expectations worth in any deal they make….too many good people are let go before they reach full potential and then you bitch about Mngmnt….Jets need a stong committment to its draft and players while not being frozen by salary caps..that is done by not reaching for players like a Ducasse or a Kyle wilson in draft or the better example of a Ghoulston….Sanchez can be a very good quarterback with a solid OL but no quarterback even Eli Manning did well in years 34 with a porous OL…unlike the Giants the Jets continue to neglect the DL especially the Defensive ends which can pressure the qb and contain the outside run…

    What’s wrong Spicer you don’t want any QB competition for Sanchize-Not????Talk about a fool…how many guys come in on their second start and set franchize records for 480 yards and 6 td’s in a game?????? against a playoff team and divisional opponent???? He did something that Bart Starr, Brett Favre and Aaaron Rogers never did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    In 2 starts vs WINNING TEAMS he throws 9 TD’s…oh and now its all about the tape???? Gee then every single new QB should be lighting it up according to your theory. Big Ben 13-3 his first year with a strong D and running game!

    DKM why don’t you try and make a coherent statement. What’s your point? Do your research then make your point because your another one that has no idea what your talking about.
    Spicer that’s right Brees tore up his shoulder and had surgery at the end of the season and decided to become a free agent instead of taking a low offer from the Chargers. HE WAS DAMAGED GOODS that is why the Phin’s decided to back off and the Chargers tried to lowball him. AGAIN SPICER YOU DON”T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May be is unwittingly admitting that he and his staff are incapable of finding or developing talent, so they wait for other teams to find it for them. Do the right thing Mikey.

    to the people that say that is only college that a player thrived in. Some of those SEC defenses are a lot better than what I have seen on Sunday afternoons.Look if the jets just picked players from LSU, Alabama,Auburn and Georgia they might be a super bowl contender instead of going after relics who belong in the smithsonian institute.

Listen there is 1 thing that happened to the Jets ,they got complacent! Rex this is simple! Sometimes you have to take a step back to go forward. I think Sparno will be a good start.Bring back ground and pound, just dont say it do it!You need to have consitiy for your QB first! then competion builds your team ! Big boys to get after the other teams QB!! Linebackers that can cover a big tightend and backs out of back field! strong safety that can hit like a beast!!

    Ira hits it right on the head! Woody might want some back page headlines should the Jints win another SB.
    How about doing something really out of the ordinary that we don’t do.
    If a player we want is not available at 15-let’s trade down.
    Let’s get some extra picks. This works positively in a number of ways.
    Not only is there future depth there but we can have “chips” should we
    want to move up without giving up our regular picks.
    Only problem is MT & Rex might be on their last thread-when Steinberg was GM,
    he tried to sell us Lott, Monk & Marshall. It was desperation on his part (rest his soul). Look at the Pats and how many picks they accumulate. Look at JJ Cowboys and trading H.Walker for pks got them 2 SB. This formula works!

    Oh man, it takes the owner to say: No more 100% guarantee that “Mark’s the starter,” Holmes will be back, and “I don’t think the whole locker room was toxic.” If there could possibly be any more sweeping indictment of Rex’s ineptitude, I can’t imagine it. But I’m thrilled, of course, that our allegedly “hands-off” owner decided to make this statement and prove that unlike many fans he won’t accept mediocrity. Frank, what I’m saying is that LT is…yes, that’s right…A LOSER! He’s never won anything, here or at SD, and he’s trashed teams in public as he’s leaving them rather than constructively criticize them while he’s on them. What possible purpose does that serve anyone but him? The man’s got nothing left in either his legs OR his head!

    I’m not that big on Flynn, I think he would be good comp for Sanchez but, I think there are other young vets out there that would give him the same push. Jason Campbell is one that comes to mind. Had he not got injured, he might have had an outstanding season. Others i would consider Chase Daniels, Brady Quinn, and Shaun Hill. All viable BU to compete with Sanchez. I think we need to stop picking up old vets to babysit Sanchez. He needs real comp from younger players.

    Btw, uncle joe & ’64 Tom, Barron would be a nice pick up but, I think we need to address our pass rush or our RT situation first. Bama had another S Robert Lester opposite to Barron that we could get in the 2nd possible the 3rd. Also Rambo from Georgia would be a nice pick up. I’m not opposed to Barron but, I think he might go sooner then projected. If we can get him in the 2nd I would be one happy Jet!

If we go after someone like Peyton who costs big $, “Mark” will be told me can stick around for chump change if he wants to compete with McElroy to succeed Peyton or he’ll be traded to SEA for a pick. Like or not, the Giants blowing up while we’re falling apart with the 2014 MetLife SB coming has changed everything. Woody effectively said today “Mark’s not the starter” — not for sure or not for long, anyway.

So a few things 1 HE WAS A GAME MANAGER AT BEST AT THAT POINT 2 You like to say we made the AFC Championship in spite of Mark yet last year Mark had 3,300 yards & 20 TDS.

    I did Eli & Cutler now Big Ben. The 3rd year numbers for Big Ben & Mark are as follows. Big Ben 59.7%, 3,513 yards, 20 TDS & 25 turnovers. Mark 56.7%, 3,474 yards, 32 TDS & 26 turnovers. Ben won a Super Bowl the year before this with WAY worse numbers. This proves 2 things 1 when he won his 1st Super Bowl he was a GAME MANAGER & 2 Mark was as good or better than Eli, Cutler & Big Ben in there 3rd years (for Eli & Cutler it was actually there 4th NFL year they sat for a year) Also he came out of school early so at this point in his career he is at least 2 years younger than all of these guys were at this point in there careers. I have said it before & I will say it again he is on pace to be a good to great NFL QB.

Fair enough. But do you read the local sports pages, listen to the local and national sport talk shows, not to mention listening to comments made by fellow teammates? So, that said,let me ask you this, what percentage of Jet fans do you believe feel that Mark Sanchez IS a franchise QB and IS being payed accordingly after three full seasons in the same system.

    In his follow-up piece on Woody’s press conference, Cimini says that he got the feeling that Holmes is more likely to start next yr than Sanchez. And why not, when Woody won’t rule out getting a new QB? (Cimini: MS starts “Barring injury?” Woody: “Barring whatever”). LT says the problems started after “the 3rd or 4th game” — OAK and BAL, when everyone realized our O was in trouble. What’s going on here, folks, is Mason, Holmes, and maybe Plax (and Keller?) started telling Rex and the brass that MS ain’t the guy. Mason was the fall guy but Rex did nothing about the others, the whole thing blew up by yr’s end, and now Woody gives SH an absolute vote of confidence but not MS. So yeah, MS will face “competition” in 2012, possibly big-time.

    Thought Woody took the high road yesterday on most topics he was asked and i don’t blame him. They have a lot of things to fix. Besides the personnel moves that i thought were not the way to go not going up to Cortland played a big part of this team not bonding like they have in the past. You can thank the owners for that lockout nonsense. Thats not the Jets fault.
    I just hope Manning doesn’t want to come here thats all i can hope for. Think Denver is the perfect spot for him.
    Now with the rumors the Jets will be playing in London vs the Rams i hope its not true. I am dead against any NFL games being payed out of the USA. Its America’s Game and thats where it belongs. Maybe the Stones will play a concert which would make the trip worth while

I still feel bring in a very competive bu to push him and build a team around him and he will be fine. I will say this coming year is a break or make year for him if Woody doesn’t make a change before.
    Give him a good OL, a strong running game, a defense that can play for 60 minutes and make stops and in 2012 they can be in the mix for a WC spot. Can’t expect more than that right now.

I also mentioned the fact that it will be very unlikely the Jets would have a shot at him because of what he is going to demand on the open market. It’s funny, because although I think he has the tools to get it done he is not a proven commodity, but that is the naivety of many of the owners in the NFL today (Kolb, Cassell etc.) I have lobbied for both Flynn and/or Peyton but I know it is only a pipe dream. I don’t seriously believe this star crossed franchise would ever catch a break of that magnitude.Hopefully I am wrong.

    A few of us have talked at length about “elite” QBs and “dynamic” offenses. It is my opinion that as long as Brady and company (Gronkowski, Welker, Hernandez) remain together in NE it will be very difficult to defend them, for all teams not only the NY Jets. That said I believe that old cliche comes in to play here, ‘the best defense is a good offense) I believe it would be less difficult (not easy, but less difficult) to keep up with them then to try to build your defense to stop them. So, lets get some competition in at QB, sign a top FA WR and concentrate on the O line and the running game early in the draft.

    Andrew Brandt of ESPN said it will cost the Colts $50.5 million to keep Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck on the roster in 2012. Manning’s option is $28 million in addition to a $7.4 million salary while the No. 1 overall pick will receive approximately $15.1 million in bonus plus salary in 2012. If the Colts are dead-set on selecting a QB with the first pick, as owner Jim Irsay suggested, the only move that makes sense is declining Manning’s option. Cleaning house from top to bottom, Manning’s contract would be a salary-cap millstone around the franchise’s neck while trying to improve the talent around Luck. Based of of these numbers I think it is impossible for the Colts to draft Luck & keep Peyton. Peyton will be cut & be a free agent to

    scjoe, re your dialogue with DKM, it’s laughable to suggest that anyone really believes that Sanchez is on track to be an elite QB. I don’t even really believe Rex thinks that, I think Rex is just terrified of admitting that MS might not be the guy. And that’s why the owner of the team trumped him yesterday and declared the end of the “100% starter” talk yesterday. It’s impossible to underestimate how significant this is. Look around the league at any other team that’s not winning and tell me how many other OWNERS are stepping in to tell their HEAD COACHES to stop making a certain claim. For Woody, the alleged “hands-off owner,” to make a Jerry Jones-like statement of this kind is even more revealing. It’s a new day at QB in Jets Nation.

    And just for the record, GaryC, I’ve never shown any interest in the Giants. I rooted against them vs BUF because BUF was a great old AFL team, I even liked them more than the Jets briefly when I was a little kid. (That’s why it’s not Jet Fan Since ’63 Tom.) But anything that gets Woody, Mr T, Rex, and a whole lot of Jet fans out of their complacency would be awesome, and a Giants SB win before 2014 would certainly help. Bennett, your pt about Sanchez’s costly picks is not only correct, it’s now revealed to have been a huge problem in the team’s eyes. You might recall I decried MS’s momentum-killing picks after Kerley’s punt return and Maybin’s strip-sack vs OAK and BAL — that’s right, those “games 3 and 4″ to which LT ominously referred.

    jet fan tom, the jets have been getting shown up for many,many years.the giants parading down broadway isn’t helping the jets one iota.Getting old giant players isn’t helping either.maybe that is their problem, worrying to much what the giants are doing.MAYBE THEY ARE THE LITTLE BROTHER UNTIL THEY GROW UP.

    GaryC, I do believe I have already answered that question when I posted recently that on my “list of favorite teams” the Giants come in at #31, one slot ahead of the NE Patriots!!! There is no bush to beat around, just do the math. As for my point about a Giants SB win indirectly benefiting the NY Jets? If there is a chance the Jets go out and make a huge splash in free agency just to try to stay with that other NY team in the eyes of the NY fans wouldn’t that indirectly benefit them? I really don’t care what happened in the past when the Giants won a SB I am talking about 2012

    64, yes, you and I and Joe and a few others have been pretty hard on MS over the course of his career as a NY Jet. But in my eyes and in the eyes of many a Jet fan it is 100% warranted.Hands down, no sugar coating it, nothing personal against Mark, that is just the reality of the situation, and for any Jet fan, or any pro football fan, to argue against that opinion is just plain ludicrous. What are the arguments for MS to defend his overall play over the past three seasons? To put it into perspective, can all of the experts, all of the sports writers and media most of the fans, some of his own teammates, etc, etc. all be wrong on this. I am trying to be as discreet as I possibly can but I just do not see any sign of a “franchise QB” there

    Just reading this months edition of Jets Confidential, for those of you who subscribe and read Leberfelds opening article on the state of the NY Jets organization and do not agree 110% you haven’t been following the same organization as I was. For those who don’t subscribe let me post just one excerpt from it. This one is re” Mark Sanchez, and I quote, “The bottom line, next year,OR even next Summer, if he continues his substandard play, he needs to be replaced, end of story” Powerful! This, coming from a guy who knows and understands this franchise as well as anybody. Want more? “This organization needs to keep and play the best players, regardless of where they were drafted, stop jerking guys around………..

    DKM, I think you’re right on both counts — Woody pulling the trigger if things don’t get drastically better across the board in 2012 and SEA not offering much more than a #7 for Sanchez. What you’re wrong about is thinking that Mr T, Rex, or Sanchez are driving this train any more. Sparano’s the ideal interim HC if we start out 2-6 next yr, which frankly I see as very likely. One draft and a few FA’s won’t fix what’s wrong with this team. The fact that Woody unambiguously backed Holmes but not MS shows how worried he’s NOT about shaking things up. Like I told everyone during the yr, whatever SH did in the locker room does nothing to change his value as a player relative to MS’s. A #5 or so for MS may be just fine when push comes to shove.

    Spicer, yours is my favorite post of the day, not ’cause I’m crazy about the idea of getting Peyton but ’cause of the post’s clear-eyed realism. Having cleaned house in the FO and HC offices, IND would be nuts NOT to draft Luck and it would be a luxury indeed to hold onto Peyton just to teach him how to play QB. For one thing, who says Peyton wants to do that? For another, there’s any number of COACHES you can hire to do that. Sorry, folks, but the NFL doesn’t work like it used to in terms of developing QBs or teams as a whole. Remember, Spicer, when I told you a few weeks ago the Browns wouldn’t give McCoy 5 yrs? Well, they’re not gonna, they’re ready to pick Griffin. Woody won’t give MS a full 5 yrs either — half of 2012 is more like it.

  110. By scjoe on Jan 20, 2012 | Reply

    64/spicer, I would be a little surprised to see the Colts outright release Peyton, regardless of what Peyton says about his roster bonus. There is almost two months to go before that bonus is due and I believe you will see something worked out by then. It may be trading the #1 for a Kings ransom and selecting another QB later in the draft, it may be a trade after Peyton renegotiates to a team of his choice. I may be wrong but I just can not envision an outright release knowing the relationship between Peyton, his family and Irsay. I guess a lot of this is going to depend on Peyton’s health and his rehab.

    I’ll have to read the Leberfelds piece, scjoe, because it dovetails with the view that me, and Arte, have that a full yr of mediocrity next yr will not wash with the FO or fans. Rex might be okay with it, since on his slow learning curve he realized only YESTERDAY that his constant predictions of SB wins make it harder on the team. Until yesterday I woulda said I can see a Campbell, Orton, or McElroy playing better than Sanchez in the summer but MS getting the nod anyway thanks to Rex, but today I can’t say that. It seems clear what Leberfelds says about a move to replace MS earlier could happen, otherwise Woody wouldn’t have a problem with that 100% talk. And if MS starts and we have a lousy first 8 games, both he and Rex might be gone.

    Okay, GaryC, how do you suggest the Jets “grow up”? By predicting SB glory every yr when everyone knows you don’t even have a starting QB? By trading most of your draft picks for FAs, overpaying them, getting disappointing production out of them, and then leaving your bench thin? Let’s have some specific ideas, please, including how long you’ll be okay with Sanchez and who you think should replace him when necessary. (I won’t say if, barring some miraculous, 1-yr maturation I’d say it’s probably more like when.) scjoe, for the record, you, me, and others haven’t been any harder on MS than CLE is being on McCoy, and McCoy came out of college much more highly rated in a better yr for QBs than MS did. Maybe CLE is more tired of losing than us.

    jet fan tom, you grow up by keeping your mouth shut and not giving ammunition to the opponent,IE, the 49’ers in their heyday,you grow up by not picking the new flavor of the month,I guess this year it is Peyton Manning,try surrounding Sanchez with a back who can actually catch the ball,unlike stone hands, Shonn Greene,and get me a wideout who doesn’t need to be timed with an hourglass,and a defense that maybe can turn the ball over in the opponents territory every once in a while,and a offensive minded coordinator,hopefully sparano who will give Sanchez confidence instead of a head coach who castigates him at every chance because he doesnt know offense.

    GaryC, This is my opinion, and from what I see, what I hear, and what I read, it may be the opinion of a lot of people who follow pro football and the NY Jets, but for the purposes of this thread it is my opinion. Mark Sanchez will never be the franchise QB he was drafted and paid to be. I don’t really think it will mater how many “pieces” you put around him. Further, there are “free agent splashes” then there is Payton Manning. If you can have a healthy Payton Manning on your team as the starter on opening day 2012 you do it! The salary cap? Forget what it is as of today. That is something that can change dramatically in a matter of hours.Do I think Payton WILL be here? Never say never!

    Everyone has their opinions on just about every topic, re: the Payton Manning to the NY Jets topic, there are just so many “ifs” surrounding it. There is the health issue, there is the cap issue etc. But I truly believe that the biggest issue of all would be the political issue re” the NY Jets FO I can hear the conversation now in that meeting room, “do we really admit we made a 50 million dollar mistake and pursue Payton”? My advice to the NY Jets FO. YES, admit it, sign Payton (providing all of those “ifs” go away) and go out and take the division from NE and seriously compete for the trophy. A healthy Payton is capable of doing that, and if you are a Jet fan that is the bottom line.

    64, as we all know here on Randy’s radar we deal mostly with opinions and a lot of facts blended in. Sometimes when an opinion is given it seems to rub some people the wrong way and they react accordingly. That said, I hope there are no closet Browns fans here because here is my opinion on their starting QB Colt McCoy. He would make a very good and very viable back up QB in this league. He will never enter the stratosphere of the elite. Just saying.

    SC Joe great points and if your Mike T do you in fact stand up sooner than later and tell your owner you made a 50 million dollar mistake on SANCHEZ and its time to move on.(CAN MIKE T get away with that and still keep his job ect )Either way it appears MANY of us on this forum are in agreement that SANCHEZ just doesnt have the ability to lead us to a division title much less than a SB.All the experts are saying Indy (cap room wise )cant keep Payton and draft luck .If Payton can still play and we get him i truely believe were definately contenders next year.

    Joe, I understand this is a business and a bottom line business at that. But from a NY Jets ownership perspective wouldn’t having the likes of a Peyton Manning on the roster as your starting QB in 2012 pay for itself in terms of selling all those stale PSLs that are sitting around like so much dead fish? In my opinion if that player is healthy AND available, you do everything in your power to get him in and signed. If he is not healthy or not available it is a moot point. One way or another….Go Jets!!!!!!!!!!

    Wise thoughts from you on Sanchez and Peyton as always, scjoe. Though I’m wary of Peyton, it’s astounding to me that anyone actually thinks the Jets are going to limp along with MS or any other mediocre QB while the press coverage of Eli, Nicks, Cruz, and most of the Giants team goes thru the roof. Of course, if you’re like Gabriel and think a HC should be a glorified fan who behaves like a kid on the sidelines as the team has been melting down since 3 wks into the season, none of that is a problem. GaryC, “You call it everything but what it is,” as the shrinks say about people in denial. At this pt I’d say it’s 1 in 3 at best that a roster filled with Pro Bowlers has any great effect on MS. Hey Spicer, how’d MS do when the booing stopped?

    That’s nonsense, Spicer. I shouldn’t respond to it but just briefly Mangold played terrifically right after coming back from injuries. Revis had his usual tremendous yr, Harris his usual very good one. Wilkerson had a solid rookie yr, Wilson was much improved, McKnight showed potential, and Kerley survived Rex’s utter lack of confidence in him or insight into his skills to identify himself as a key Jet of the future. Sanchez merely had the same yr he’s had before, showing no growth, arguably regressing, and costing us a number of games all by himself. He’s nowhere near the kind of QB that played in today’s two championship games, though he somewhat approaches Flacco who’s similarly on and off and the main reason his team can’t win big.
