    Well, no better, no worse! It was exactly as I expected, heavy dose of the ground and punt, and “try” to manage the game. It didn’t work. Then again, what has this year? My observations? 1-The O line needs more help then I origanally anticipated. 2-Eric Smith and Kyle Wilson can not cover anyone with 2 legs. 3-McIntyre is a keeper. 4- Tannenbaum, Sparano, Sanchez, Greene, Wilson, E. Smith, Scott, Pace, Thomas, Tebow, Ducasse,and J Smith are not.

    Saw a few good things from Mc this half but when the OL seemingly stopped playing in the 2nd he had no chance. Cimini’s more than a little off about Mc’s pocket presence, while he held the ball too long at times, on the 4th qtr sacks he barely had time to take two steps back after the snap. Since the result of the game is utterly meaningless, I take comfort in knowing that Ducasse was a major factor in possibly the worst game I’ve ever seen a Jet OL play, which should increase the probability of Mr T getting fired. I’ll wait till the first post-game story, after I’ve heard some of the post-game comments, before saying more but it’s good that Rex says Mc will start vs BUF. There’s absolutely no pt in playing the other 2 QBs.

    Chargers sack McElroy 11 times – WOW ! Did the O-line mail this game in or what? I figured they would be fired up, didn’t you? Good news is we’re moving up on the draft board. Glad Rex finally gave G-Mac a start, what did you guys think? Why not give Tebow the start next week? What have we got to lose, can we get 5th rounder from Jaguars? Norv Turner is 100X better OC than Sparano but, with all that talent and speed out in SD, if he takes over here in NY,for Turner its gonna be like climbing out of a Ferrari and into a Fiat :D

    McElroy, Every Man for themselves, it looked like you had maybe 3 seconds the longest to throw the ball, so much for an offensive line. Braylon Edwards is a keeper for WR. Smith should have been more utilized at TE, McElroy did as good as could have been expected by him considering the situation he was put in. Now Tebow time for the last game, might as well, what’s it going to hurt.

    Jet Nation.. Does not matter who is the QB. But, definitely not M. Sanchez, who ever and when ever someone new takes over the team if Mr Johnson does make changes needs to start with offensive line!Shameful!! Games are won and lost in the trenches and this group along with other defensive players with huge$ contacts have to go, B Scott, D’Brick, maybe a Mangold and Revis trade before they stock drops off and/or they leave. To free some $$$$ and get some draft picks. To rebuild this team quick with young talent. But do something Mr Johnson, I can’t this much more… PLEASE..

    Sporano has got to go. Horrendous play calling with a couple trick plays, but the problem was where are the adjustments..especially at half time. Adjustments as far as your QB not getting harrassed…11 sacks is crazy. 5 at halftime was OPEN YOUR EYES sporano…or maybe your sun glasses didn’t let you see MAC getting hit over 20 times. where was Gug adjustment with o-line….whole offense coaching gotta go. No adjustments at half-time…have Mac roll out which he did with success. And MY LORD…I saw some screen passes in 1st qtr that suprised the Chargers…why not more to slow down the rush/blitz in 2nd half. So clueless Soprano…better off hiding behind those shades.

    I wish Tim Tebow the best of luck in Jacksonville. I have no doubt that he will turn that franchise around, for the better of course. He should have been in Jacksonville to begin with so glad he’s out of New York.

  23. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom Saying Give Greg a Chance on Dec 23, 2012 | Reply

    So there’s talk Tebow “opted out” of the Wildcat this wk. I’m not interested in Tebow because I’ve never been interested in Tebow, but I’ll admit that the disaster of Rex, the Wildcat, and whoever thought it was a good idea to get Tebow is endless, though I’m glad to see it. Anything that pounds home to Woody the reality that Mr T isn’t a GM and Rex isn’t a HC is fine by me. When the Jets were up 14-10 I said to my friend, “Watch, Rex’ll play it even more conservative and hope to win by this score even though Rivers is still a dangerous QB on some days and it means zero if we win this game.” Damn if it didn’t turn out exactly like that. My only interest in BUF is seeing how certain guys play, then it’s game on for LONG-OVERDUE HUGE CHANGES!

  24. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom Saying Give Greg a Chance on Dec 23, 2012 | Reply

    From a fan’s post from ESPN that I like: “There need to be massive changes with the FO purged and the coaches replaced, starting with Rex. The new GM needs to clean house of the malcontents and underachievers. Tebow and Sanchez need to be gone. If they’re tradeable, great, if not cut them, you have to take the cap hit to save the team from this circus. Mc is the lone returning QB. He can be the back-up and start if needed, he’s a good team guy and he’s smart. He has guts and moxie. We need more players like him. Then you have to make decisions on Revis, DeVito, Greene, Keller and Holmes to name a few. Revis could bring some picks that are much needed. I’d hate to see him go, but the new GM has to do what is best NOT for him, but the team.”

  25. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom Ready for the Makeover on Dec 23, 2012 | Reply

    From that same fan post on ESPN, and I completely agree with all of this. Woody can revive this franchise in part ASAP by showing he means business: “As soon as the game ends in BUF, Woody should make it official. Mr T and Rex should be fired and their replacements will be filled quickly. I suggest Polian to be GM and trust who he’ll pick as HC. There are plenty of good coaches with sterling resumes out there in: Dungy, Cowher and Gruden. Each has a SB ring and is respected in NFL circles. There are good assistants as well, but the Jets have gone that route and it’s failed. I think a proven winner is essential in the next hire.” I’ll even settle for less than those guys at HC, the main pt is to flush the bad ideas of the Mr T/Rex yrs ASAP.

  26. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom Ready for the Makeover on Dec 23, 2012 | Reply

    Never let it be said that I won’t cut Rex a break when he makes sense, as he does here. I’m referring specifically to that 3rd sentence about Mc’s poise, which some of us have noticed since his first pre-season game: “When he wasn’t on his back, I thought he did some good things. He had a couple of nice throws. I thought he was poised beyond belief, taking the kind of heat he was under. He made some nice runs. He’s tough. Obviously, you don’t want to see your QB get hit that many times, but we’ll look at the tape and see how he did. I’m going to give him another opportunity against BUF and we’ll go from there.” Sorry I can’t vote for giving you another opportunity in 2013, Rex, but you’re not in tune enough with today’s style of NFL play.

  27. By scjoe on Dec 23, 2012 | Reply

    Ok people, things don’t look to promising right now, but keep in mind the Colts won just 2 games in 2011 and they are going to the playoff’s in 2012. The Bengal’s have been a bottom dweller for years, then one good draft (Dalton QB, and Greene WR) and they are going back to back playoff’s. Also, the Skins, and the Seahawks proved there is no long term rebuilding. I am not a big believer in the term “rebuilding” With a competent FO (GM in particular) this team can compete with just a few “key” additions, a QB, a quality RB, and an OLB who can pressure the passer. Of course, this all begins with the FO….Are you writing this down Woody?

  28. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom Ready for the Makeover on Dec 24, 2012 | Reply

    kw65, I salute you and Arte, who’s been saying for yrs that we’re the worst team in the NFL at 2nd-half adjustments. Only thing I don’t get about some of these posts is playing Tebow next wk, which Rex is wisely not doing. Why bother? TT’s already out the door that he should never have been let in. I agree with you, scjoe, in the same way that you no longer “need to give an NFL QB 5 yrs,” you no longer need to allow many yrs for rebuilding, it can happen in 2 or so. Unfortunately, Mr T has traded picks for players for so long that our bench and even our starting lineup are as riddled with holes as any in the league so it’s likely to take us a little longer. We need to dump the obvious waste from FO on down and emphasize the draft above all.

    Joe, no doubt elite QBs and WRs are a big part of the game now, maybe the biggest. No doubt your college and pro football-connected friends know what they’re talking about. But among the Jets’ many long-time failings, 2 of them are (1) Not believing enough in, much less trying out, guys they draft and (2) Frantically trying to rebuild with has-been vets instead of the right way, thru the draft. In this sense, there’s great value in playing Mc this wk and next even if everybody but him is gone next yr. It shows that the Jets can think a little outside the box, put some faith in their own experiments, and not cave in to fear before they even know what they got on the roster. If they learn just that from playing Mc, it’s progress for this org.

    Mr. JOE, As much as I dislike M.S. as a QB, I hate when my team lose. You, my friend sound thrill we lost because you feel vindicated. Karen and I disagree she stated the O-line and lack of receivers was M.S. problem, I still think its M.S. You and I also disagree, well not you per say but your MOMS COUSIN. Football has evolved (From a 100% barbaric to a more strategic form–at least for me anyway) The Jets never had, They always want to win now–Unlike the Giants or Pats who build dynasty. My beef is with upper management and their 5 and 10 yrs plan–Before Ryan we were bad 2 quite years and now we’re bad again. I’m hoping for RUSS BALL 4 GM AND I’ll LET COWHER BUY THE GROCERY AND COOK. IT’S TIME FOR ORDER AND RESPECT. 10 yards at a time.

    Living in Fla, Naturally not getting the game for obvious reason, Jets are so bad what Station in their right mind would broad cast this team nation wide.. Anyway at least G-mac scored 14 before Vlad the Bust and his cohorts gave up the fight. 11 sacks ? how many fumbles or INT’s would Sanchez have after 11 sacks . Chargers may have won by 50 given a ME scenario

    The Jets would have as much as 7 guys blocking and the other team got to McElroy, when i watch other games, the QB has the regular 5 guys blocking and at times they can block out 5 guys rushing and the QB still has about 4 to 5 seconds to throw the ball, not the Jets 3 seconds at best, Offensive line needs improvements and the Jets still need to learn how to spread things out on offense, they always look like their always clumped up.

    I don’t buy the reports Tebow opted out of the wildcat, does not strike me as that kind of person. Ryan dressed all three QB’s so as not to hurt feeling to much. Notice the empty seats Mr. Johnson. I said before the season if there is one person to blame for a bad season it is T-baum, he almost single handedly took a a playoff caliber team and drove it in the ground in 2 short seasons. He has to go, this is your first move and than the new GM can advise you what further steps to take. Of coarse Sporano goes the day after the final game or you could just do a huge shakeup and get the broom out, But T-baum most go first he has been a disaster as a GM. Just terrible, if you don’t see it you don’t belong as an owner in the NFL… polo horses…

  36. By SCfromNY on Dec 24, 2012 | Reply

    Thoughts after another loss. First I am not a Tebow fan BUT the way he was treated will be a factor in players wanting to come to the Jets with the current regine. Kerley in the wildcat? How much more can the Jets insult Tebow? Why would Rex say he wants to see what McElroy can do and call so much of the outdated “ground and pound”? Seahawks and 49ers are defensive / ground & pound teams have realized in todays NFL you need to be able to light it up. CONSTANT aggessive play calling. Other teams are just so good that ANY lead is in danger. Didn’t get to see much about McElroy, him being on the ground. It wasn’t because he held onto the ball to long. Still you NEVER saw the Sanchez “pout” or quit in his demeanor.

  37. By SCfromNY on Dec 24, 2012 | Reply

    i, among others have called for a “bust” 2013. We need to release so many players and have no money to sign FAs. We need to face reality for 2013. Eat the contracts of Sanchez & Holmes, if you can not make trades even with paying a portion of salery release them outright. Let Scott lead the exodus of older slow players past their prime.We wil have decent draft picks IF we change those making the picks. And with a wasted 2013 our picks in 2014 will be low and the QB class should be better. You no longer need to worry about drafting a rookie. I bet the fans will support losing in a true effort to rebuild.

    Polian as GM, Gruden as HC, Turner as OC, all O minded coaches. I would like to see Rex as DC but probably not an option..

    TEBOW this off season drop a good 20lbs, mucho stretching, lower weights, high reps, do not tinker or let anyone else tinker with your drop, the angle of your arm, faster release etc…. enought is enought…. go with what you got. Lighter = more speed, flexability = more range of movement, higher reps, lower weight = better muscle balance, quicker muscle response. Concentrate on accuracy WITH the mechanics you have think accuracy and only accuracy. Listen to Bennett, you can thank me latter

    GUYS, The very first play set the tone for the debacle that ensued at PSL stadium.Knowing this was Mac’s first start, and how conservative Sparano is the Chargers had 9 guys in the box and ran a run blitz that blew the play up in the backfield.I literally called out the play as the teams lined up for that 1st snap. Now, if I can do that, dont you just know S.D was all over that. I mention this because as important as having great players is, its equally important to have coaches who know what they are doing to put them in posisition to succeed. Can any of you tell me you have witnessed any good coaching on this team this year? You would thing sparano would antisipate S.D might crowd the box and have an audable for Mac to go deep? oh well,

    S.C.Joe, From what I am reading and hearing it looks like you are gonna get your wish as it appears Rex will be back next year. While there has been no official announcement on this subject the NFL “insiders” are pretty much saying this is a done deal.The fact that Rex,Tanney and M.S are all under contract for next season appears to have as much to do about this than their stellar record and performance? Anyway, I read your post above and think you are leaving out one important piece needed to make your other suggestions workable. As 64 points out the W.R posisition is 2nd only to the Q.B posisition so if the jets are gonna turn this ship around in the near future we need a big time playmaker at that posisition.Like Dalton & Green in Cincey

    Just looking at some of the media stories today, it occurred to me that they really have no clue about what is taking place. They question the fact Tebow wasn’t given the start, but what they fail to take in to consideration is the fact Tebow will not be here next season and there is a good chance McElroy will be. So, does it really make sense to play Tebow at this point? Hard to say whether or not the players mailed it in, it sure looked like the O line did, but you have to put some of that on the QB as well, just to tentative in the pocket, looking forward to next game to see if it improves.

    Ron, I have to disagree that a WR is the 2nd most important offensive player on the field, at least for this particular team. There is no way anyone can tell me that a quality RB, a RB who can consistently get to the outside, would have made a world of difference in this offense this year. I honestly believe that if you had megatron and Fitzgerald out there the results would have been the same with this QB situation. The WRs are adequate, the RBs are 3rd string at best. A quality QB and a quality RB will go a long way in turning this team around in 2013.

    Sanchez, with that kind of pass rush would’ve fumbled twice and thrown 3 picks. I thought McElroy played well enough today to get another start. It is clear that this team has fallin far since 2010. Mac waqs poiosed and made some good throws. I would blame the loss more on play calling than anything. 4th and inches and a punt. Rex is playing scared and I hope that he gets fired. I agree 100% with SCJOE. Would love to see Pettine given an opportunity to be HC. It says alot when a DC doesn’t accept a contract extension. This organizatiion needs some serious changes.

    It really shows what kind of character Rex has,he shows more respect to guys like Holmes and Scott and disrespects Tebow to know end.I believe he really has insecurity concerns,seeing he always needs to tell himself he knows he can coach in this league and constantly saying his team is great.

Just no football conversation about this team in me , only negativity, We can talk all about what needs to be done to improve, talk about who should be hired or fired , we all know it won’t do a bit of good. last 44 years are proof of that.. Best we ever come up with is a acceptable season once or twice every ten years or so… Yet I’ve watched over the years so many teams build and rebuild, though drafting, trades, deals. Win Division Titles SB titles, My Point 44 years of losing I can’t, no I won’t, accept we haven’t learned to win

    At Quarterback for the NY Jets, #14 Greg SackElroy :D
    Watching the Sunday night game (49er-Hawks) got me thinking… The QB position in the NFL demands more pure athletic ability from a player today, than it did even 10 years ago. We are seeing the future right now in guys like RG3, Russel Wilson, Kaepernick, and Luck. All have that ability to make throws from the pocket but, when it breaks down they can make an accurate pass on the run. Jets need to embrace this type of QB.
    I hope whoever ends up making draft decisions for the Jets next year, recognizes this when evaluating potential picks.

    Many coaches will be fired after the season, and Rex should be one of them. There are some assisstants/co -ordinators that deserve a shot. How about Mike Zimmer from Cinci, or Bruce Arians from the Colts? He has done a tremendous job there. He seems to be a first class guy too. He would be my choice

    Time to Clean the Jets house out here some names that Jets could get for some new Coaches. Rex Ryan as the HC, Norv Turner as the OC, Bob Sutton or Dennis Thurman as the DC, and Bill Polian as the new GM. OR Josh McDaniels as the new HC, Norv Turner as the OC, and Romeo Crennel as the DC, OR Jon Gruden HC, GM, still being in Bill Polian to help out with Gruden as the GM, Norv Turner or Bill Callahan as the OC, Sutton, Thurman or Crennel as the DC. Do now do it soon after the Season God help me I’m a jets fans.

    The “Little” Fallacy: “I feel like I’m a starting quarterback in the NFL,” Sanchez said Sunday after the Jets’ 27-17 loss to the Chargers at MetLife Stadium. “I know I’ve done it at the highest level under the toughest kind of pressure and scrutiny in the playoffs and regular season. I know I can do it. I just wish I would have played a little better this year.” Mangold and Ferguson also used the phrase “a little bit” to describe needed improvements. What the heck ever happened to, “WE HAVE TO PLAY A LOT BETTER”???

    From Bondy: “You get sacked as often as Mc did, it really is as bad as throwing INTs downfield. Apparently, however, this is what Ryan desperately desires from his QB and OC — nothing ventured, with minimal gain. He has become more conservative out there than Rush Limbaugh, punting Sunday on 4th-and-a-foot from near midfield, running out the clock at the end of the first half with the ball on his 39. Nobody wins like this anymore. It’s a philosophy that flies in the face of every SB championship team over the past decade, ever since Brad Johnson, a generic QB, somehow won the title with TB. Since then we’ve had Brady, Ben R., Rodgers, Brees, 2 Mannings.” I don’t know what you’ve read, Ronbo, but I doubt this will fly with Woody much longer.

    MJV, simple, those teams you mention above all have one thing in common, they were all given quality additions to their roster by their respective GMs, quality at the most critical positions to boot. Make no mistake, this team can also turn around over night with just a few quality additions at the right positions. Question is, who is going to make those personnel decisions? If it is still T Bum, all bets are off.

    S.C.Joe, your point about the R.B vs. the W.R posisition is well taken and as always, I respect your opinion. My thought on this is a dynamic playmaker at the W.r. would force the defence to play the running game honest and not put 8 or 9 guys in the box.But yes, a great back would help us as well no doubt! Merry Christmans to you and your family my friend!
    64, the jets post game as most of the N.Y papers are all speculating the Jets will give Tanney & Rex another shot to get it right? Do I agree?, heck no! Just passing on what I am hearing. I also wish you and your family a great holiday as well!

    How did you guys like the ground and pound yesterday? It worked perfectly for the Charger’s as they grounded and pounded GMac into the turf all day. The O line’s play was pathetic, giving up 11 sacks. With all the talk of the Jets needing a qb, a play maker at wr and an elite rb, I think the O line needs to be addressed first. As some of you have stated, the games are won and lost in the trenches, and it was painfully obvious yesterday. Even an elite qb would have had his hands full.

    It would have made me proud to be a Jet fan if “SOMEBODY” would have fired Sparano and the O-line coach “Guge” DURING the game Sunday? LOL That would’ve totally made this debacle worth watching! As Dysfunctional and Disorganized as the team has looked on the field this year, I’m hearing reports that it’s even WORSE behind closed doors. Rex gets in front of the cameras for his pressers and tries to paint a big happy face on things but… heard it’s non-stop shouting and screaming at each other off camera. That’s not the type of environment which is conducive to winning football. “Loose lips sink ships” Things are going to get UGLY here real fast!

    Ron, first and foremost a very Merry Christmas to you and your family as well. Think, just one more “debacle” to watch this year. Then we look forward to baseball season where, as a Giant fan, I have seen much more success .Anyway, I am not diminishing the need for a quality WR, but at the same time I stand true to my theory that a quality QB goes a long way in making an average WR a quality one. So, bring in that quality QB and you solve two problems with the price of one. Meanwhile, that quality RB has a much better chance of beating those 8 or 9 defenders in the box, which in turn opens things up for the passing game, example? Minn, Houston, SF. Note, I am not using the term “elite” just give me quality at the QB and RB spot.

    Well, Ronbo, last night’s story, obviously after you posted, is that the Jets are already looking for a new GM and when they find out — in about 5 minutes — that nobody good will share the job with Mr T, I think you’ll see big changes. Make no mistake, I’d never deny that I’m rooting for a complete makeover, but I’m going against the conventional Jet fan wisdom/ignorance on this one, rooted in the usual “Oh, things will never change that much.” I have a feeling that Woody’s going to wield an axe to this team, this yr surely has infuriated him, especially if what Byrdman says about people going at each other behind closed doors is true. Lots of us saw it all coming like Joe says, though, with “Mark’s” absurd extension and getting Tebow..

    GaryC, my 2 cents on your ongoing debate with Joe, re: “elite” QBs, As you may have noticed in my recent posts I try to stay away from the term “elite” I think that if you refer to every SB winning QB as “elite” you would be watering down the term. So, that said, I do have to agree that the vast majority of SB winners over the past 2 decades all had “quality” QBs. Of course ALL those quality QBs on any given year will not win a SB because it is mathematically impossible. If your team is one of the lucky ones (Hou, GB, NYG? NE?) who happen to have a quality QB AND a “good” defense, your chances improve 2 fold. With neither? Jets? Sorry!

    Joe has certainly stated his case, uh, rather extensively here. But I’ll second one of his key points anyway, because it can’t be stressed enough: No player on D can come close to having the impact that an elite QB can have not only on O, but on the entire team. That’s why the Pats, who love to talk about Brady, will be in it until the day he retires and we, who love to talk about Revis, will never be in it until we get someone like Brady at QB. Which is also why I want to trade Revis for picks ASAP.

As S.C.Joe points out, only 2 teams will make it to the Superbowl each year.I think we can all agree that a guy like Sanchez who is a poor decision maker, poor reader of pass coverages and extremely inaccurate as a passer is not who we are talking about. A guy like Brady or Payton who hits the w.r in stride allowing y.a.c is a simple example of a posative difference maker.
