Posted 26 Nov 2014All 3 of the names you named, are owners.
In 115's defence, Al Davis was an owner, while Jerry Jones' title includes GM as well
To be honest, it is probably best that Geno starts. Although he helped defeat Pittsburgh, Vick hasn't really offered an upgrade (admittedly it is hard to when you're trying to play behind an offensive line as porous as ours). And we aren't going to learn anything new about Vick with hm behind center.
Give Geno the last five games as one final chance to see if he has any future with the Jets. Then end this miserable season!

Vick - despite having just ten completions!
Mangold for flipping Mike Mitchell upside down on the second to last play
I think our entire defence deserve a mention this week. The Steelers couldn't get going on the ground, and though Roethlisberger threw for close to 350 yards, he didn't look comfortable most of the day (those yardage figures of his were inflated by two big completions to Martavis Bryant). And that was because the defensive playcalling was aggressive. Interesting to note as well the defence's performance with Calvin Pryor riding the bench, which doesn't reflect well on Idzik.
Colon - another couple false start penalties
It would have been nice for a bit more success on the ground for our offense to make for a more comfortable finish to the game too.
Posted 6 Nov 2014Dolphins home game, so we don't lose one. Nice.
apparently there will be 3 straight weeks of London games next season.
They're restricted by the Rugby World Cup that's in England next year, but it's three games all within a month, which may not necessarily bode well. The games have continued to be well supported this year, but they've been spread out. Will be interesting to see the effects on attendance for the final game next year.
I'm excited that I'll have to travel less than an hour to see the Jets play, and even more so considering that it will be a divisional game! Anyone here thinking about making the trip over?
Posted 25 Oct 2014Yeah and it's not a bad deal at all...man we love complaining about anything
Always amazes me when people criticise locking up players who, although not stars, have been solid performers and provide great depth. After all, it takes 53 effective contributors to build a winner.
Even with Harvin and Decker, letting Kerley leave would have been dumb. He's a reliable target on third down - which this offense needs seeing how often it struggle to move the ball downfield - and has been consistently good since he was drafted.
Posted 12 Oct 2014Decker and Amaro were the standouts from that game, no doubt about it.
Geno wasn't terrible - it's tough when you are under constant pressure, while we should never have abandoned the run so soon despite Ivory and Johnson gaining little early on.
Although Denver was a deserved winner, the Walter Powell fumble really shifted momentum. With a chance to get the offense good field position again, he ended up gifting the Broncos a short field. Even though we forced them to punt, we were then backed up deep. And next possession, Denver scores quickly after starting on another short field to take the lead.
The defence - for all its strong play to begin the game - looks gassed. Two games in a row now we have been weak against the run.
We have to get some confidence injected in the team; it's as if the players know they are short on talent and that they're playing down to their ability, especially in the secondary and at receiver. Even though we pulled back to within seven with a good amount of time still to and the fans in the stadium did a great job, there didn't seem much conviction within the players that they could tie. That was evident from the initial offensive drive after Decker scored and the defence forced Denver to punt and we went three and out.
If we continue to play as though we know we're not favoured to win then it's going to be a while before we get out of this skid.
