Jets vs Chiefs Sunday 4:30est
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:09 AM) Best day of the week is the day after a Jets Win!
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:12 AM) Rob you think the offense started off ugly? we scored on our first 4 drives, and controlled the ball 80% of the time the first half. We didn't even punt until the 2nd half
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:21 AM) I meant the hits on Fitz at on the first Drive or two with the fumbles and almost fumbles....The Tom Brady rule where balls that used to be fumbles are incomplete. We recovered the ball on all but one but it was ruled incomplete
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:26 AM) The offensive line stepped off after Hughes got hurt for however long he was out. I don't blame J. Marsh for that fumble because that was just a hell of a play. Imo Fitz had a career best game even with only 1 td passing. Never seen him so accurate. So yeah when I meant ugly I meant dline penetration and the 1st two drives ending up in fieldgoals
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:30 AM) But 31 points given up passing by the defense passing was bad. It wasn't just 2 long bombs and that defensive touchdown leading to 21 points. 3q1 against a bad team was terrible for the defense. Without the offense putting up 37 the Jets,would have lost so yeah I consider it an ugly start on both ends
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:32 AM) I'm glad like everyone else that the Jets won. Especially with getting with by the Bills multiple times it was nice revenge.
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 10:34 AM) Just saying that the Bills look like a bad team this year and the Jets have to face a lot of teams that are probably playoff bound again so yes there is a lot of concern
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 11:39 AM) fitz look good and lets not forget the 50+ yarder to decker that was called back on a BS holding penalty. plus if you rewatch it, the jets d-line was getting held like crazy and never got calls. I seen McLendon, williams, and wilk all complaining about it
azjetfan Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:32 PM) I think the game plan for the D was to keep Taylor in the pocker
azjetfan Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:33 PM) They didn't want him running around when they only rushed 3-4 guts
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:37 PM) bills fired their OC today after the loss yesterday lol
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:38 PM) yeah we didn't really rush, we just tried to keep contain on the outside and collapse the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:38 PM) on the salas TD, one of our LBers went for the sack and broke contain and pryor got away and made the play
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 September 2016 - 12:39 PM) when we did rush which was rare, we had a spy
ROBJETS Icon : (16 September 2016 - 11:11 PM) As far as the Bills firing the oc I'm not sure I agree with it with Watkins having major foot problem with a steel rod in his surgically repaired foot but I dont follow the Bills so cant really say. I do think they need to get rid of Rob Ryan though. He had a decent year with the Browns then was terrible with the Cowboys and Saints. He isn't half the DC that Rex is. I still think Rex can be a good head coach withe the right coaches and roster but Rob Ryan isn't the answer. But if Rex wants to ruin his chance of staying a head coach by keeping his brother on the coaching staff like he ruined his head coaching job keeping Sanchez as a starter then that's his stupidity

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (17 September 2016 - 02:03 PM) They got rid of their OC after their defense was ripped apart
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:03 PM) Well hell that makes even less sense. The defense gets ripped apart so let's get rid of the oc instead of the dc.they didn't have much of a run game but a lot of passes yards. If they wanted to blame anyone for nearly 40 points against them it was their defense. But guess Rex used the ocean as the scale goat instead of his brother
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:04 PM) Oc not ocean. Damn Auto correct on phone
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:04 PM) And scape goatee
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:05 PM) Lol still can't get it right
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:13 PM) Not sure about anyone else but I'm extremely interested in the 49r/ Panther game at 1pm. Just want to see if the 49rs are actually good this year or if the Rams have become one of the worst teams in the league this year
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:16 PM) If the Rams have regressed that much then all the Todd Gurley owners in fantasy will likely have low points from him all year. Might even be worth trying to trade him early if they look just as bad this week before his stock drops
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:26 PM) I drafted him last year and also had David Johnson, Chris Johnson, Roetlesburger, Romo, Palmer, Barnage,, .....my whole team was stacked with starters. Entire team wasc stacked with starters. Even bench. Made tge Superbowl but did have a rough start at behinning of season when Romo and Roethlisberger wentvdown at the start of season also lost amazing starting rb and wr all within the 1st 4 games but worked the waivers really well..shut out until garbage time by a team that was terrible last year
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:28 PM) Last part meant Rams were shut out entire game even in garbage time against 49r backups
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 05:29 PM) Sorry about typos. Hard to type on small phone screen
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:00 PM) This is why I'm glad Rex is gone. Fire the OC after the D gives up 500 yards??
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:01 PM) UPDATE THE UPDATE!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:25 PM) Yep Rex isn't a bad coach but he needs to have all player and coach decisions as far as firing and hiring taken out of his hands. His problem is he doesn't know to separate the job from loyalty to players and is unable to let underperforming players go
ROBJETS Icon : (17 September 2016 - 06:27 PM) He was great as a DC because he wasn't in charge of roster and firing decisions. He will never make it as a good head coach until he can get rid of loyalty and run a team like any boss runs a business.
azjetfan Icon : (17 September 2016 - 07:16 PM) I loved Rex as a person. But he is severely handicapped in his skill set as a HC. He has not adapted and will not adapt. That's why he isn't here and will be fired from Buffalo.
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:05 AM) It's all guessing and I will like likely stick with my two starters that are injured and playing but D.Thomas looks like he is still in a lot of pain and Stewart is still in the locker room getting ankle treatment so both could be on a snap count
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:06 AM) I have good wr's on bench and good rb's on bench but they have bad matchups. Do t trust Diggs against Greenbay or Doug Martin against Arizona both on bench
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:08 AM) If I made changes I have Crabtree for Oakland Aagainst Atlanta and Abdullah for Detroit against 49rs as my two options I would choose if I made any changes
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:10 AM) Actually have it backwards with my running back teams
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:12 AM) Detroit vs Titans who I believe has a legit defense. Panthers have a better team but the ankle for Stewart and both the Titans and 49rs are ranked #1 against the run. Not a believer in the 49rs defensesthough
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:13 AM) Believe the Rams oline just sucks
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:15 AM) Abdullah splits carries but he did get 17 last week and also catches a lot of passes and has a better qb so could exploit the Titans still
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:16 AM) Will most likely do my own thing anyway just looking for input from those that actually study in fantasy if anyone feels like offering their opinions. If not it's cool too. Thanks
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 11:18 AM) If not for the injuries to the two players I'd keep them in for sure but all it takes for Thomas is a hit to the hip and a tackle by the ankle for Stewart if they aren't on a snap count already or if pain doesn't get to them.
ROBJETS Icon : (18 September 2016 - 12:45 PM) Well looks like leaving in Stewart was,a,bad move in locker room
MikeGangGree... Icon : (18 September 2016 - 04:54 PM) Good news! Dolphins suck

Now that I've had time to look back at the injury, I'm going to say that it wasn't entirely Rex's fault. We've all wanted a QB competition. There is no set #1 yet, so there is no reason Sanchez shouldn't play with the #2 team. If Sanchez was the appointed starter this move would have been terrible, but with the circumstances it can be filed off as acceptable.

It should have been obvious at the point Mark entered the game that Smith is not ready to be our #1 QB. I am not a big Sanchez supporter but he has been mishandled by the team for 2 plus years (different receivers every year, no real competition, bad oline, and 3 OC's in 3 years) but he was clearly outplaying the competition this preseason and by halftime last night, he had the job won IMO. I just hope the injury isnt as bad as it certainly looked. Ryan just had to beat the giants so he puts our starter in with linemen who likely won't make the team protecting him. When he was sacked on the first play, that should have been enough to get him out of the game. This is all on our big mouth coach!

I think this was entirely caused by Rex's impulsiveness; he risked far too much to gain far too little. You could tell the Giants D line we teeing off on Sanchez. When he got hurt he was already wrapped up by 2 other guys and you could tell the 3rd guy was targetting his throwing shoulder, and it was a late hit to boot. If it had happened that way to Brady, Goodell would have launched a full scale enquiry and half a dozen rule changes.

IMO, take your lumps and develop Smith & Simms and give McElroy a chance to run the offence. The season is going to be a migraine; if the D can step up and the O plod along then it might not hurt too much.

And Folk's a bum; Cundiff not much of an improvement though. We're in a tough spot.

Rex is a horrible coach, a great d-coordinator. We are once again the jokes of the nfl. He should have been fired along with Tannebaum except Woody is too damn cheap. We are looking at about three wins this year which will probably be one too many for the first overall pick which is always our luck which is we have none. Thank god for fantasy football.

It's a competition. It's not like Rex marched out Brady or Manning. Sanchez hasn't been consistent this offseason and 24 hours ago people were calling for Geno to start. If the team isn't comfortable with Sanchez, they have the right to get him in and let him get more reps in the offense. With the limit practices this off season, teams have been playing their starters longer during the games. I'm more surprised by Cimini's tweet saying Sanchez didn't want to go in with the second string players. What makes him think he should just be handed the reins again?

No one said anything when Geno played with the backups. Its a competition, to not play sanchez would indicate that its not.

I know a lot of you are pissed. For one thing we all know Rex has always had a temper. Big deal. Who cares how he treated the media. He isnt the first coach to ream the media and get mad at them. Many coaches have done that so as far that goes you guys are making something out of nothing.


Next I see nothing wrong with Mark being out with the #2`s. Its a qb competition and because there is no clear cut starter you cant expect the rest of the starters to play the whole game against rookies and players who wouldnt make the team. For instance these guys are trying to earn a roster spot so any of our starters could have been injured if they played against players that probably wont make the other team.

And this has nothing to do with my dislike of Sanchez. I want him gone but I didn't want to see him injured.

Basically you guys need to think of this logically. Sanchez was green as hell his first two seasons and if the running game, oline, and defense wouldn't have been around the top ranking in the league Mark would have been just as bad if not worse.

I hate the injury but Geno needs to be starting. Yes he threw a lot of interceptions but he was able to drive the team down the field better than Mark ever has. Lets not forget that Mark turns the ball over a lot too and he has played 4 years.


Geno may have turned the ball over a lot but it was easy to see he has way less flaws than Sanchez. Just looking at his turnovers is like looking at the game with blinders on.I have never just factored in Marks turnovers alone.Its everything combined than Ive looked at. Looking at Marks stats he has been near or at the bottom of the league in multiple categories even if you dont factor in the turnovers.

Geno has very good pocket presence which Mark has never had.
Geno is fairly accurate(far more accurate than Mark has ever been).
Geno is already far closer to actual game speed than Mark is now after 4 years.
Geno isn't throwing the ball late and putting his receivers in bad positions like Mark often does.
Geno doesn't have tunnel vision and doesn't just look at one receiver like Mark does more often than not.
Geno actually sees the defenders rushing him and doesn't take unnecessary sacks like Mark does because many times Mark cant even read the pre-snap defense correctly and many times gets sacked by players he never even sees.

The main problem I'm seeing with Geno is he isn't yet reading the post snap defense down the field correctly or is misjudging the speed of the defenders when he makes the throws. Most of his int`s were close to the receivers and not totally inaccurate.


Basically to sum things up I see far more upside already with Geno than Sanchez even after 4 years. Yes he is green as hell and may or may not be the Jets future but Id rather live and die with someone who has possible potential than stick with a qb that will never get better and remain one of the worst starting qb`s in the league every year.

Also if you want to think of it another way.......How many HOF qb`s had very sh*tty first years??? The answer is many.

So yes. No matter what the Jets do with Geno Id rather take my chances with him because I see far more potential with him already. I mean hell if Sanchez played the Jets would likely win 6-8 games max so whats the difference? Also Sanchez sure as hell isn't going to groom Geno into a top level qb. The best thing for us with Geno is to groom him with playing time. I hate to see Sanchez hurt even though I want him gone but this could be the best thing for Geno because now the job is his to grow into.

Anyone defending Rex is out of their damn mind. It was clear after the 2nd INT that Geno is no where near ready to start a regular season game.

Sanchez was the Week 1 starter by default, and to risk his health by playing him with practice squad fodder is sheer stupidity and mismanagement. Preach competition all you want, but the competition was over at halftime. And if that's not enough for you, what productive analysis are you really going to get from Sanchez playing against guys who will be working at Burger King in two weeks? That's Simms/McElroy time.

It was the stupidest decision of Rex's tenure here. Easily.

That's saying a lot since he has done many things most NFL coaches wouldn't think of doing. You're right though, Mark should be pissed at the clear stupidity of putting him in there with no protection.

I saw absolutely nothing wrong with putting Sanchez into that situation.

It's obvious now that Geno is very far from being ready. Sanchez last played in the 2nd Q of Game 2. Starters do not play the 4th preseason game. If Sanchez doesn't come in at that point in Game 3, he'd have a month off before facing the Bucs. Sanchez is far from a polished product and needs every bit of work he can get.

Yes it's a shame he got hurt, but by that token, we lost Pennington in the preseason and he was in the game with the ones. Who cares? If you're going to criticize a coach for putting his QB in the position to get hurt, you should advocate not playing a QB in the preseason at all since the games don't matter and the risk outweights the rewards.

Yeah but Rex is a stupid poopy head stop defending his actions


I agree with what you are saying. Not having a qb perform at a high level is forcing the jets to just throw shit out there to see what sticks. Geno needs more development but more importantly the run game needs to lead the offense. Let's face Sanchez the more seasoned qb will be better prepared to run this offense. The issue is he's still very average and his turnovers make him look like a bum. The fans will just have to suffer with Sanchez at qb till geno is nfl ready. If the jets had a successfull run game then they could use that as a crutch to force who ever into qb but that's not the case right now.

Why are we assuming it was Rex's decision? I don't know maybe it was, but Idzik may have made that call (fire Idzik). He has said he will have a heavy hand in who is the starter. I know Rex will take the heat for the team but what happened behind closed doors?

I agree as well. Geno has not performed well enough in his limited playing time to get the start. Sanchez should get teh nod. Also I think Sims has earned the 3rd spot, outplaying McElroy and even Geno in his limited playing time.

Then let him get a series or two in Thursday's game with some guys who actually have a chance at blocking defenders. Not in the 4th quarter with practice squad linemen.

You say starters don't play the 4th preseason game. Clearly the Jets don't prescribe to conventional wisdom, as they've yet to name a starter and are allowing the competition to go into the 4th game. So there's no reason not to have held Sanchez back and let him get a series or two vs. Philly.

It was beyond stupid.

Plenty of past rookie QBs struggled in the preseason and then went onto have good seasons. Yeah he made some bad passes, but that doesn't mean the competition is over and it doesn't look like Rex is making that decision anyways.

You said it yourself in the shoutbox during the game... it's clear Geno isn't ready to start and Mark was the Week 1 QB at that point.

Then let him get a series or two in Thursday's game with some guys who actually have a chance at blocking defenders. Not in the 4th quarter with practice squad linemen.


I heard this a lot... oh Sanchez was in there with 3rd stringers! Oh no! You acting like they were playing the 85 Bears on the other side. They were 3rd stringers against 3rd stringers. Sanchez didn't get hit hard because there was a talent disparity. Any player can get injured on any play. The reason you don't play your starters in the 4th game is exactly this, give him one or two series and he gets hit in the head and there isn't enough time to recover in time for the Bucs. Then its Rex's fault all over again.
