Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:45 AM) FIRE IDZIK,
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:45 AM) I really hope the JEts completely clean house this offseason and get rid of everyone, it's time.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:54 AM) We need to keep getting embarrassed every week to ensure that. That is why I don't give a shit about getting destroyed, it makes the team look like more of a joke and forces Woody to make real changes
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:55 AM) Like how do you get blown out by a team that didn't practice while you had 2 weeks to prepare?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:55 AM) That kind of stuff may force Woody to make the big changes and fire everyone
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:55 AM) John Idzik has handled the QB situation terribly. 2 times he pretty much handed the job to his draft pick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:56 AM) Besides Sheldon Richardson, his drafts have been awful.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:57 AM) Maybe Woody will clean house and go all out for Jim Harbaugh, that probably won't happen though but it would be a franchise changer.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:07 AM) Harbaugh would be amazing...but because it makes sense it won't be done
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:51 AM) According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets blocked coach Rex Ryan from talking to Mehta about a bye-week visit to his ailing father, legendary NFL defensive guru Buddy Ryan. Buddy, who rose to prominence as defensive coordinator of the ’85 Bears and then coached the Eagles and Cardinals, is battling cancer.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:52 AM) Mehta interprets the muzzling of Rex Ryan as proof positive that, once the season ends, Ryan will no longer be the team’s head coach. Apparently, the team fears that Rex would become more sympathetic in the eyes of the fan base if he’s dumped by the team at a time when his father is fighting a serious illness.
santana Icon : (Today, 11:05 AM) Mehta is an idiot
santana Icon : (Today, 11:25 AM) If colt McCoy lights it up do the jets make a move?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 11:27 AM) I don't even care what they do for a while
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 11:28 AM) The team is a catastrophe
santana Icon : (Today, 11:29 AM) I didn't see the game
santana Icon : (Today, 11:29 AM) I remember the first bills game though I'm guessing it was like that with more sleeping in the end zone
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 11:32 AM) I'm with 0099...I hope they keep getting destroyed
Chaos Icon : (Today, 11:33 AM) it's a very Jets-esque move to sign McCoy if he does well
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 11:53 AM) I think they sign RGIII, Cutler, or Bradford
santana Icon : (Today, 12:10 PM) why not all three
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 12:11 PM) Knowing this team, I wouldn't put that past them
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 02:07 PM) RAUL FOR QB
santana Icon : (Today, 02:10 PM) the only real choice
santana Icon : (Today, 02:10 PM) almost uefa time

CASSEL READY TO CASH IN?
Posted by Mike Florio on November 14, 2008, 11:06 a.m.

Overshadowed by the Jetsí 34-31 overtime win against the Patriots is the stellar performance of New England quarterback Matt Cassel. With New York intent on taking away the run, Cassel completed 30 of 51 passes for 400 yards, three touchdowns, and no picks. He also rushed for 62 yards, making him (or so they told me on ESPN this morning) the first player in league history to throw for 400 and run for more than 60 in the same game.

Cassel capped his night with an Ď81 Montana-esque rollout to the right sideline and a needle-threading throw to Randy Moss, for the touchdown that forced the extra session.

But the seventh-round pick from the 2005 draft will be an unrestricted free agent after the season, and he likely has done at least enough this season (especially after last night) to prompt a team that otherwise would be inclined to take a flier on a passer in round one of the draft to offer Cassel something along the lines of $60 million over six years, with $25 million or so guaranteed.

With Brett Favre possibly retiring (and costing $13 million in salary and cap space if he doesnít), the New York Jets might be very interested Cassel. Other potential suitors could include the Chiefs, the Vikings, the Bears, the Lions, the Buccaneers, the 49ers, the Rams, and the Seahawks.

Of course, this presumes that the Pats wonít try to keep him. But while guys like Marshall Faulk of NFL Network think that Cassel could pull a Bledsoe on Tom Brady, itís highly unlikely that the Pats would ink Cassel to a long-term deal and put Brady on the block. (As Cris Collinsworth jokingly observed after Marshall made his case during the pregame show, perhaps someone has dropped something on Faulkís head.)

The Pats knew in 2001 that Brady could be better than Bledsoe ever was. But Cassel is no Brady.

Still, we donít rule out the possibility of the Patriots using the franchise tag on Cassel (which would guarantee him a 2009 base salary of more than $10 million), and then perhaps trying to trade him. (Theyíve done that before with safety Tebucky Jones.) The challenge will be to have enough cap space available to devote to Cassel. But if a trade can be lined up before the clock strikes twelve on the opening day of the 2009 league year, the Pats could unload Casselís cap space ó and then use it on new free agents immediately thereafter.

In our view, thatís the more likely scenario. Cassel will still get a starting job of his own, and heíll still be paid more than handsomely. But the Patriots will also legitimately finagle the system in order to get something of value in return.

It's still yet to be seen if he's just a system QB. Yeah, he played well and diced us up.. but so did Tyler Thigpen. And so did Ryan Fitzpatrick and JaMarcus Russel. He has a great cast of characters around him that I'm sure make him look a lot better. He'll definitely make some offseason noise.. I just hope we're not silly enough to make a move for that.

Whoever pays him money to be a starter will regret it. He is not a starter, but he has proved to be a good backup.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.
