Jets-Titans: First-Half Tweets

Posted by Randy Lange on December 17, 2012 – 10:10 pm

Here are today’s first-half tweets for the Jets-Titans game at LP Field in Nashville, in case you missed them on Twitter. Follow Bob Wischusen, Eric Allen and me for our tweets during each Jets game on https://twitter.com/nyjets.

#RL Jets gameday captains today: DE Muhammad Wilkerson, C Nick Mangold, S Yeremiah Bell, S Josh Bush, WR Braylon Edwards.

#RL Rob Bironas comes out late to try 46-yd FG, Mo Wilkerson blocks at the line, no good. Bironas now 4-for-5 career vs Jets.

#RL Wilkerson gets Jets’ first FG block since Kris Jenkins vs ARZ in ’08, first road FG block since Shane Burton @ BUF in 2000.

#RL Jets 3rd-and-1 at TEN 25, Tim Tebow first action in 4 games runs forward to get the first down.

#EA TEN helping the Jets on this drive – 3 penalties. Edwards getting in the mix right away on this opening march.

#EA Sanchez has all day to throw the rock right now. Great job by the O-line. TEN was all over Luck last week.

#RL TE Jeff Cumberland appeared to grab 4-yd TD pass from Mark Sanchez, his 3rd TD of yr. But ref Walt Coleman reverses call to no catch…

#RL Nick Folk comes on for 22-yd FG. Good, making Folk 17-for-22 on FGs for the year. Jets lead 3-0 with 4:17 left in 1st qtr.

#RL Kyle Wilson nice third-down tackle on Nate Washington for a 5-yd reception on 3rd-and-8 as 1st quarter comes to an end…

#RL TEN continues as only NFL team not to have scored a 1st-qtr offensive TDs at home. Titans’ only 1st-qtr home TD came on PR in Game 3.

#RL Kyle Wilson nice third-down tackle on Nate Washington for a 5-yd reception on 3rd-and-8 as 1st quarter comes to an end…

#EA This is the Jets’ first lead entering the 2nd Quarter since Week 2 vs. PIT.

#RL Another nifty Robert Malone punt bounces backward from TEN-2 for 53-yd punt gross and net. 14th consec game for Malone with 50-yd punt.

#RL Chris Johnson bursts off RT, goes 94 yds for TD. Longest run vs. Jets since Garrison Hearst went 96 in OT in ’98 opener @ SF.

#RL Johnson 94-yd run is 2nd-longest by opponent in franchise history. Previous 2nd-longest: Sid Blanks, @ HOU Oilers, 12/13/64.

#RL Tim Tebow gets his first full drive as Jets QB, 7 snaps, 6 plays and pen, 22 yards. Has to throw 3rd-and-16 pass away.

#RL Calvin Pace gets his 3rd sack of the season, touching Jake Locker as he scrambles OB for a 2-yd loss on 3rd-and-7. TEN punts.

#RL Garrett McIntyre, starting for LB Bryan Thomas, gets 3rd sack of yr and 2nd big defensive play in 2 games w/ sack of Jake Locker.

#RL Jets go into halftime trailing 3-0. It’s 4th straight game they haven’t scored 1st-half TD, but they won their last 2, over ARZ, JAX.

#RL Jets lead in 1st downs (10-6), possession (15:52-14:08), but Titans lead in yards (198-99), takeaways (1-0) and score, 7-3.

    Sorry time to benchSanchez . Turnovers re too much. Start Tenow and McElroy as back up. The announcer even think the team is a joke!

    The issue is not Tebow it is Sanchez and poor execution.

    I guess this answered all questions about MS with 4 interceptions and a fumble on 1st down with 53 seconds left.

    What a godawful performance by Sanchez and the coaching staff! Sanchez should have been pulled after the 3rd INT and MCELROY should have been put in (not Tebow.) The Jets would have won this game with Mac in there! VERY POOR COACHING BY REX RYAN!!

    I’ll say it for the 100th time, only thing we can count on, Sanchez throwing red zone int’s or fumble and stumble the game away.. next, Rex making any excuse to protect him, Trent Dilfer said it best, this is as bad a football team
    trying to make playoffs as he has ever seen , He also said,.this was football justice Jets missing playoffs, Know what, he’s 100% right, Sanchez 4 INT’s 2 fumbles our defense gave him every chance to win, in the most important game of the season against a 4-11 team which BTW he made look like a SB contender… Any I repeat any average QB wins this game hands down only Sanchez could lost this game.

    I got it…I finally got it!…We can have mark sanchez be the elite QB we always wanted…Randy..just send this over to Rex and Sparano. Before each game have the WR’s and TE’s wear the opposing jersey and mark will finally start throwing to his own teamates……geez…sorry 64tom, bennet, garyc, scjoe , ron alexander it took me so long to figure it out.

    Ok…..JoeyD….you still think we have White qb Envy?…right now I have high school QB Envy dude!…..karen…I feel for you..you have supported Sanchez all season. But I know you watched this game. Can you still support this Qb after watching this display of quarterbacking? Well at least I made a couple of bucks because I called the 4th INT and I called the fumble….because that’s what Mark Sanchez does…you put lipstick on a pig……..it’s still a pig. This WHOLE thing needs to come apart.

    Randy, remember my post in the last story about those playoff scenarios? Can you delete it please, I must have been delirious when I wrote it. For some strange reason I actually thought that this NY Jet team was capable of competing with, or maybe even defeating a 4-9 Tennessee Titan team.

    This one goes out to Spicer, Ira, Karen, and anyone else who is STILL willing to give this “so called QB” we have on this team any benefit of the doubt. As painful as it was to watch, did you happen to force yourself to watch it in it’s entirety? The cold hard fact of the matter is, this pathetic performance we witnessed tonight could best be categorized as an average Mark Sanchez game, below 50% completion, FOUR (4) INTs, totally lost in the pocket, and no awareness of what is going on around him what so ever. And for all of those who continue to put the blame on the coaching staff, their shortcomings notwithstanding, what ARE you thinking? The problems with this team, in this order, without question are #1- Mark Sanchez! And a close #2- Mike Tannenbaum. If both return next season expect the exact same results!

    No pt piling on but I’ll say if that’s the last time I see Mr T, Rex, Sanchez, and Tebow in Jets gear it’s the best early Xmas present I’ve ever gotten. Of all the terrible qtrs I’ve seen MS play, not just this yr but the last 4 yrs, that last qtr mighta been the worst. Now all that’s left is to go on the NY papers’ sites tomorrow morning and read “REX FIRED, SPARANO NAMED INTERIM COACH, ” in which case my prediction would only be about a month off. But it’s not about predictions and taking bows for them, it’s about this terrible organization, FO, HC, QBs, scouting for and mindset toward the draft, conditioning of players, and of course many of the terrible players themselves. But at least we might get to see McElroy start 2 games now…

    Let this, from Cimini, be the last we hear of Rex, Tebow, and the Wildcat anywhere near the Jets: “Not only did Rex use Tebow but he let him play an entire series — a season 1st. It was a bad decision on several levels. It was surprising in 2 respects: 1st, Sanchez actually moved the O in his first 2 series, developing a little rhythm. Second, he let Tebow handle 2 obvious passing situations. It was a weird time to let Tebow, who hadn’t played in 3 wks, cut loose and throw. The plays ended with a sack and a throwaway. It destroyed whatever momentum they had. On Sanchez”s next pass, he threw an INT.” Woody, maybe you can never have enough Tebow but I’ve had enough awful Jet teams. Make BIG changes or sell to somebody who wants to win BIG!

    OMG!!! How can a professional football team be so inept? I beleive that last night plus previous performances put a lock on it. Sanchez simply can NOT play QB at any level. After 1 series where Sanchez having some success the “brain trust” brings in Tebow. WHY? “Well that’s what we scripted”. Does any coach watch what is happening on the field? Tebow showed us NOTHING just like he has all year. It is past time No matter what cost Sanchez, Tebow, Sporano, and Rex need to go.I think the fans will better understand a bad 2013 because we are unable to sign many players because of cap hits when you have a viable plan for the future. There are too many quality 1rst & 2nd year Qbs playing demonstrating that with good management we should land 1.

    Well, if there were any Rex or Sanchez supporters still out there before this game I have to wonder how many are left now? This game sadley difined the very essence of this team. Abysmal! As bad as Sanchez was last nite, and for this season as well, I cant help but wonder what may have happaned if he was surrounded by a better supporting cast? When a W.R is signed of the scrap heap and with only a few days practice (& with a bad hamstring) & then becomes the featured reciever that says a lot about the talent on this team. The pass blocking was awful as M.S. was hit as quickly as he set up. The play calling(especially the Tebow pkg) was baffling and Sanchez’s decision makeing & lack of accuracy was as bad as I have ever seen. cont.-

    cont.- perhaps the most disturbing thing was inspite of the 4 interceptions, and allowing a 86 yard t.d. run up the middle and all the other nonsence that happaned we still had a chance to win the game? I mean how bad was Tennesse trying to give us this game, and yet we come up short? With Pittsburgh losing to Dallas at the end of the game and Tenn giving us the ball on their 25 yd line with 45 seconds
    left was I the only one who thought we had been given an early christmas present? S.C.Joe & Ira, please tell me I’m not the only one who thought we had a chance????

    I urge all of you to go over to ESPN NY and listen to the Trent Dilfer-Steve Young discussion that followed the Monday night debacle. Feel as I did how pathetically embarrassing it is to be a NY Jets fan, these two ex NFL QBs were laughing so hard that they could hardly get the words out. While there, read Cimini’s “report card” most of which I agree with, but while ranking the coaching and giving it a “D” and to make a statement like “Can you blame the coaches for four interceptions? That’s a tough one, but you have to wonder why they allowed the turnover-prone Sanchez to take so many deep shots. He attempted eight passes of 15-plus yards, completing only two. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?……………

  29. By scjoe on Dec 18, 2012 | Reply

    Is it really that unfathomable to ask an NFL QB in this day and age to throw 8 passes for over 15 (FIFTEEN YARDS) in a game, and complete more then TWO of them???????????????? To whomever did this grading, I ask you again, ARE-YOU-KIDDING-ME? I understand that the bar has been set just a few inches off the ground for the most part, but with that statement I do believe they buried it ten feet below the ground! Don’t blame Rex Ryan, don’t blame Tim Tebow for being here, don’t blame the WRs, don’t blame the O line. If you are truly a Jet fan, like I am, you know exactly where to place the blame!

    (GROAN) When this game started my thoughts were “Please don’t do anything incredibly STUPID” hoping (praying) the Jets would play a solid game and maybe eke out a win. I swear ! when the Jets had Titans pinned down at the 6 and lined up in Rex’s vaunted “46″ D, my thoughts were, “OH NO..You don’t want to use that formation there Rex, if Johnson get’s a crease nobody will catch him” LOL After that TD run I started thinking “Hope Titans can just put Sanchez and this poor team out of their misery” But Mark wasn’t finished… This kid doesn’t shoot himself in the FOOT, he shoots himself in the “Chandelier” so to speak:) This game drove a stake through ANY notion we might have entertained of Sanchez being a viable QB for the Jets !

  32. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom Ready for BIG Changes on Dec 18, 2012 | Reply

    “Mark Sanchez returned to the game on the Jets’ next possession and promptly threw his first of 4 INTs on the night as CB Jason McCourty beat Jeremy Kerley to the sideline on a comeback route. In his post-game remarks, Ryan left up to interpretation whether or not Tebow’s entrance messed with the starter’s rhythm. “That’s for you guys to formulate your own opinions,” Ryan said. “Mine? I don’t think it matters. You know, I think when you go in, whenever your number’s called, you go in and do your job.” So after 4 yrs, Rex admits what I’ve always suspected — he doesn’t understand how the Wildcat hurt Sanchez. Still think Rex’s problem is just with the players he’s got, scjoe? He wouldn’t know what to do with Brady, Peterson, and Megatron!

    I see people are taking Woody’s “I’ll talk to you guys after the season” as code words for a total makeover. GREAT! Twice this yr the Jets were embarrassed as badly as I’ve ever seen happen to any NFL team on national TV. Ryan has zero credibility especially re QB play, O, passing, and SCORING, which is how you win. Like I told you folks a few days ago, he’s still out there with his “I’d prefer to run the ball” junk and he doesn’t even have a runner like Johnson, though he also doesn’t know how to use McKnight. And it’s GREAT to see Pace and other D players, like I’ve been saying about Revis, getting fed up with keeping other teams from scoring but losing because our O can’t score. LOSERS, DREAMERS, AND APOLOGISTS, PREPARE TO FACE REALITY!

    Right from the Boston Globe: “Apparently, being quarterback of the Jets is the NFL equivalent of being a Supreme Court justice. Once you have the job, the only way you can lose it is either through retirement or repose. Rex Ryan isn’t exhibiting loyalty by sticking with his fallen franchise quarterback, he is stiff-arming reality, Heisman Trophy-style. If Belichick found a quarterback that gave him a better chance to win than Brady, that guy would be in the starting lineup tomorrow. On behalf of Patriots fans everywhere, thank you Rex for failing to realize that trying to supplant the Patriots with Sanchez at QB is like trying to win the Indy 500 on a bicycle. The NY Jets: the gift that keeps on gifting.”
    That about says it all.

    Don’t know what happened, he used to be a clutch QB back in ’09 and ’10, made big plays when it counted the most to win games. He’s just been losing it now and lost it these past 2 seasons. Don’t understand how. Its unforunate.

    I am not going to get on the TT bandwagon. As far as MS, I will say it again, he is not an NFL QB and never will be. “IF” MS starts this coming Sunday then REX and Sparano should be fired right on the spot. If REX makes any excuses for MS he should be fired right on the spot. You can not make any more excuses for MS.
    As for TT starting I disagree with that also. McElroy should start this week so he can show once and for all that he can lead a team to victory and possibly restore the negativity that the offensive team now has towards MS, in fact they have it with him and so have us fans.

    Even Karen no longer supports him (MS)…

    Yes, Allan, on a night when Sanchez completes twice as many passes over 20 yards to the opponent as to his own players, your theory is as good as any. I gotta admit, scjoe, I was a little curious when you were actually saying playoffs and this team in the same universe. I’m just grateful that we’re not going to worry about going 8-8 when the big worry is about getting as many high draft picks as possible. Nice to see you getting the message on Sanchez, Karan, which reminds me — thoughts, Ira? You’ve watched enough complete makeovers of this team in your day, it shouldn’t kill you to see another one, especially one as badly needed as any since about 1975. Love the table analogy, GaryC, and some are already saying Polian’s on his way here…

    From a tremendous Lombardi piece on the NFL site: “New York’s off-season plan should not be complicated. Yes, they need more talent on the roster overall; yes, they need help at many positions. But until they fix the QB position — until they find a player they can build around — nothing will improve much. Want proof? Look at what Andrew Luck did for the Indianapolis Colts, or what Robert Griffin III did for the Washington Redskins, or what Russell Wilson did for the Seattle Seahawks. All three teams had talent, but adding blue chip players at quarterback made the difference, lifting up their rosters.” DUH!

    Hey Joey Defiant, don’t see you here today. Is it because of MS play last night? Karan, glad to see you’ve finally come to your senses re Mark. I wasn’t surprised by the outcome of last nights game. As I’ve said numerous times before, the Jets do not know how to win a game they need to. The NFL needs to keep the Jets from playing on national tv because they lay the biggest eggs when they do. Another embarrassing disaster… It was almost a relief when they lost, because a win would have just prolonged the disappointment of a bad season. There is no point in starting MS for the last two games. It’s time to see what McElroy has, and if they don’t, this organization is hopeless.

    Not sure if anyone noticed but on the last interests knuckleheads threw BilalPowell was standing in middle of the field and no one within 10 to 15 yards and could have walked to the 5 yd line. What does knucklehead do, throw into triple coverage. Sorry folks he’s shot, done, finished. His head is so screwed up he”ll probably never recover.
    The best thing they could have done to help the kid was to st him for a few games. Instea d they gambled and he only got worse. Nothing left to do but let him sit and get a veteran qb in there, draft another and start over.
    For me, I’m done will not be renewing even though I”ll lose my psl money. 43 years of this is enough. I’d rather lose $1, 500 than renew and pay them another $2, 700!!!!

    McElroy named starter, to little to late, well it at least will make me watc h to see what the kid does

    Well Rex is STARTING MCELROY. This the chance most of us on this website have hoped for. A decent performance from McElroy should vindicate many of our posts, give us a proper win, and start some QB talk for 2013. I am wishing him the best. Hopefully after driving 75 yards Rex will not put in Tebow for his 1 yard run.

    Kara: 2 opinions: If you watched the fumble at the end you saw Mark grab low but catchable ball but he backed up so fast he dropped it. After ’09 & 10 Sanchez had no competition and regressed. If you know your job is safe there is no fire or determination or will to win.

    NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO BENCH SANCHEZ! We’re out of the playoffs so keep him in so we can blow the rest of the games and get a higher draft pick….

    Funny how now that the palyoffs are over for the Jets the coaching staff comes to the same conclusion that the fans have had all season… Bench Mark…. one game too late..

    SCJoe, If your Kerley would be a pro bowler with Brady throwing him the ball. What would that make Braylon Edwards after he had 2 practices played in a game & was CLEARLY the better player than Kerley? Either Braylon is the best WR in the history of the world or Kerley is just a #3 NFL #3 AT BEST! I think it is the later.

    SCJoe, Unless I am mistaken MONTHS AGO I said Sanchez is not the answer so I am not sure why my name is being brought up with Karan & IRA. I know you dont have the best memory but who has been the person on the site who has been talking about the college QB prospects for weeks? Answer ME!

    SCJoe, Lets discuss this. I have repeatedly asked you with no answer to name an NFL team with a worse #1 WR than Kerley? I am still waiting for an answer.

    We want MAC…We want MAC….only two games….show them kid….show then who the starter will be next year…..Be confident…be a leader…should have been done 6 games ago…if you see guys slacking on offense because there just going thru the motions…kick them out of the huddle, call a time out and get another player in there. Be strong…play smart that we know you can…

    @Karan… Do you really not understand, or are you just in denial? Sanchez has been a sub-par QB from day 1. He had an excellent team to bail him out in his first 2 years. But if you looked at his stats, you would see the truth that we all have known from the start; he isn’t, and never will be, a starter.
    50 interceptions in the last 2 seasons… you can’t win with that kind of production.

    I’m glad he failed in such a colossal manner on national TV. This way the whole country sees how awful he is. Even if we didn’t have to keep him next season, no one would want him if we tried to trade him. After 4 years, the NFL has sen enough to know what he isn’t capable of, winning BIG games.

    Ron, actually, I knew that they would not get the job done even given that field position with almost 50 seconds left. Not the way this sorry QB was playing. But I was expecting the INT or the sack fumble, the fumbled snap was about as bad as it can get. I am at a loss for words. Nice to see McElroy get the start, but it’s just to little to late.

    KARAN, I’ll tell you what happaned;what ever confidence Sanchez ever had has been totally destroyed by a series of blunders to numerous to list here as Randy tries to keep it real.To make a long story short Tannenbaum failed both the team and Mark by surrounding him with a collection of retreads from other teams and rookies not ready for prime time. The O-line, R.b’s,w.r’s are simply not good enough. The decision to bring Tebow here has certianly contributed to undermine him as well.But the most damning thing has been his inability to raise his level of play which may have helped elevate some of his teammates .Sadly, he failed to seize the opportunity and our season speaks for itself.;

    I’ll bite the bullet, like Blinka, says no one cares what I think, So I’ll say it once again before this game Sanchez was 90% at fault same mistakes 4 Int’s and 2 fumbles costing us yet another easy game . NOW, After this game no matter how bad Sanchez played, I won’t blame him anymore, Heck if Rex allows him to play then he has to play,..RIGHT, so now Rex is 100% at fault again installing a QB who can’t comprehend or get the concept of winning football games, so I put the blame squarely on his shoulders, Defense RB’s WR’s back end all played well not great but looked like a team, without run back by CJ we win even with MS 4 INT’s and 2 fumbles.. it’s not rocket science .

    Now lets see if the Jets will listen to me. You start McElroy the last 2 games finally FINALLY see what this kid has. DO NOT pull him for Tebow let him play it out. If he plays strong you might have your starter next year, if he plays OK you got your #2. Tebow is out at the end of the season, Bring in a Smith or any decent veteran, draft a PROSPECT to DEVELOPE for the future as your # 3.There will be a hidden raw gem in the 2013 draft, identify him, draft him, sign him and DEVELOPE HIM. Smith isn’t great but he is improving as he matures, still young, He will not loose the game for you like Sanchez,solid, accurate, ball control type QB. Strong D, strong running game, Fire Sporano, fire T-baum, give Ryan one more year.

    Tom Spicer, to answer your question above, and I have said it many times before, maybe you just didn’t get a chance to read it. YES, Kerley would be all pro with Brady throwing the ball to him, no doubt! Next question, what would that make Edwards? A “healthy” Braylon Edwards would also be an all pro with Brady throwing him the ball. Want even more proof? Danny Woodhead! What did he do in NY with “your guy” throwing him the ball? What has he done in NE with a real QB throwing him the ball? And make no mistake, if Welker were to go down Woodhead would fill that roll in a NY minute without skipping a beat. Why? Because of the QB! They have an elite one, we have you know who.

    Tom Spicer, I will answer your other question about Kerley with one of my own, name me another NFL team who has a worse starting QB then the NY Jets? Matter of fact, name me another NFL team who has a b/u QB worse then Mark Sanchez? Because I sure can’t think of any. That should answer all of your questions about ALL of the NY Jets WRs.

    So much blame to go around it’s hard to know where to start! Ryan proved he is not a head coach. He’s a good defenisve coach-that’s it! He’s stubborn support of Sanchez cost us the playoff. Mac Elroy might only be a solid back up but that’s all we needed to win against a sorry Titan team. Tannenbaum has left us with no depth and a cap mess. Woody okayed the Tebow deal to put fans in the seat. I used to like that he didn’t meddle, but seeing the way his team unravled, I can’t believe he didn’t. Maybe he’s as clueless about football as he was about Romney? We went from a playoff team to a bottom feeder in no time. We’re not only bad, we’re laughable!

    Funniest post of the day, Marine 1842. joe, hold your rant this time. What HC DOESN’T want to go somewhere with an elite QB? I don’t need Cowher and his now-make-it-pretty-for-me haughtiness, I need a guy who’s ready to come in and work hard, crack heads, take chances, develop players, and build a winner. If Cowher thinks we owe him a great roster from jump street, he can take a hike. Fact is he had a great roster at PIT most of the time and didn’t do that much with it compared to some other HCs. Besides, he’s a little stuck in the past with his own ground-and-pound jive, so he’ll be no great loss. I’ll take a college coach with a fierce desire to prove himself in the pros over some fatcat vet who’s coasting on his resume anyday.

  67. By Bennett got Karan angry on Dec 18, 2012 | Reply

    Speaking of Smith or some one like him. I like to think of what our season would have been like with him as QB. 5 INT….70% completion ratio… over 9 games ? ( a little comparison here? ) Man I will take it. Never going to be an elite… no fireball… but man I will take it. The D might have to win the game but at least he will not, with individual Sanchez type play, loose it for you. Still not convinced the only way to a Superbowl is with an elite QB, smacks of pundit CAN’T EVER ,NEVER happen type pundit bull. “‘Brady will never be a viable option as a starting QB in the NFL …bullfeathers…Montana has a weak arm…BULLFEATHERS… Pundits are mostly idiots… lotta scouts are total idiots

    Bennett – Alex Smith would be the ideal “game manager” for a Rex Ryan team. I’ll take Smith, provided the asking price isn’t too high. If Jets clean house in 2013, the new GM will determine what to do with the QB’s but It would be smart to bring in a proven vet like Smith while they draft and develop their “dream” QB. Glad to hear McElroy is starting, hope the Jets play well but lose the next 2 games and jump up a few spots on the 2013 Draft. Don’t want Bill Cowher! His teams were loaded in Pittsburgh, look how they never skipped a beat under Mike Tomlin? Cowher is a product of the Steelers system, nothing more. Don’t want that old “BITTER BEER-FACE” on the Jet sidelines.

    Hey Viveca, nothing against how anyone voted, I saw good and bad on both sides, but I’ll say this: The day Woody hires a HC with the kind of resume Romney has in both business and government will be the day he proves that he’s actually serious about building this team into a solid, consistent contender. Spicer, it’s great that you’ve seen the light on Sanchez in the last few MONTHS, but I think scjoe’s probably referring to your endless citing of meaningless stats for Sanchez all of last yr and your constant talk that he has no weapons and we don’t protect him. Last night all his INTs were terrible throws, terrible decisions, all made with no pressure. Every drone Obama has in his arsenal and the best OL in football wouldn’t help this guy!

    SCJoe, Actualy that is NOT what happened. Danny Woodhead never even got a chance with the Jets so to say what did he do with Brady throwing him the ball as opposed to what he did on the Jets. You cant make that comparison cause he never played for the Jets only in pre season where he shined.

    On the money about Cowher, Byrdman, who barely squaked out an SB win on a bad call vs a terrible team. He’s not talented or cutting-edge enough to remake the culture of this team and take it into the 21st century.

    At last!!! McElroy is getting his chance. For once REX done the right thing and benched MS and by-passed TT. “JOHNSON”, time for you to start talking to “GRUDEN” as “HC”, never mind rumors, just do it. Time to start looking at possible draft choices for February’s Draft, such as: ERIC FISHER, OT; ODAY ABOUSHI, OT; KHASEEN GREEN, OLB; kEENAN ALLEN OR TERRANCE WILLIAMS, WR’S; DAYTONA JONES, DE. I could name a few more to look at but it’s time to build a team us fans can respect. BUT, please start with the coaching staff and GM position.

    Joe, since you asked, the Jets have not beaten a team this season that had a winning record when they played them. (The Colts were 2-2 when the Jets beat them in Week 6.) In 2011 the Jets defeated the Jaguars (1-0), Chargers (4-1) and Bills (5-2). In 2010 they defeated the Patriots (1-0), Dolphins (2-0) and Steelers (10-3) in the regular season and the Colts (10-6) and Patriots (14-2) in the playoffs.

    Joe, I think you and kw65fan are both right. There are three ways (among many) to measure the strength of an opponent: by its record at the time the teams meet, its current record, and its record at the end of the season. Many here, including yourself if I remember correctly, noted the Jets in 2011 didn’t beat any teams with a winning record for the season. This year they will have beaten at least one, the Colts, who will finish no worse than 9-7.
