This team is an avg team not a playoff team. Its good to win but I think most sane Jets fans are worried that if the Jets finish 8-8 or better that major changes wont happen.
The worst thing these Jets can do is stay the course with this GM Coach and QB.
"The Butt of all jokes"
Call me out on this idc... It's crunch time for us and Mark will step up for us and we will be let down by our D again...
Late season magic!!! Just kidding. Another game we should've won despite how awful we really are. The next 3 games will be iffy. We play terrible teams but we are a terrible team. Also, say what you will about Rex but not many coaches could have this team with this roster in the playoff hunt. The rest of the schedule is one of the easiest but the first 3/4 of the season was the hardest schedule in the NFL going by opponent's win percentage.
That said, Coples and Wilkerson were beasts. The O-line keeps gelling well together. This was, by far, David Harris' best game this season. He looked like a completely different player.
We need to play more 2-10 teams
!Tank the season for Bridgewater!
Absolutely, but we play'em as they schedule'em, and we know we're mediocre, at best, on offense, and struggling as we lose Stephen Hill, again, maybe this time for the season (I hope not, but it doesn't look good), AND - it's not like the dude was ready to carry the team.
Mardy Gilyard, Chaz Schilens, and depending on whether he plays the slot, or WR, the - steady reliable "old" veteran - Jeremy Kerley are our available WRs. Gilyard has been on the team for 2 weeks, and Kerley and Cumberland are battling hamstring injuries - which when it gets cold could be disastrous.
Can you imagine how hard it is for Sanchez to have developed any continuity with anybody. I'm not necessarily sticking up for Sanchez, as many of the problems we've had this year are directly related to his "bonehead" plays, BUT - we were all screaming about the lack of receiving talent at the beginning of the year - and now look at it. Sanchez has to hold onto the ball until he sees a WR open before he throws it. This is a terrible handicap to play with. Yes he missed a wide open Kerley on a "comeback" (he actually just turned around), but he's got no time working with Kerley on the outside. The fact that he was able to hook-up twice with Gilyard is somewhat miraculous.
One thing that Sanchez really misses in L. Tomlinson's ability to catch the ball out of the back-field. I'm amazed we don't flair Powell or McKnight (when healthy) out into the flats. Sanchez has, by far the fewest completions to RBs, and almost no screens (although he tends to throw INTs on screens, so maybe that's a good idea?).
The NY Times NFL blogger came out and stated what many of you have been wanting for a few years, and that is to bring Braylon Edwards in. This should definitely happen now that the Seahawks have released him. I don't care that he bad-mouthed the Jets FO for benching Sanchez - IN FACT - I think it could be a bonus because he will stick up for Sanchez.
CLEARLY - we win when: 1) We play great defense; 2) run the ball really well; 3) don't turn the ball over - especially Sanchez, but Kerley has fumbled 4 times - losing 3 - which is just a fraction of what Sanchez has done - but that is still way too often. Kerley also has 52 receptions which by far leads all others, now I think he's a good slot receiver, but far from #1 WR status.
Why did it take Brandon Moore giving the O-line "a'talking-to," for them to start opening some holes? We need them to do that every week - but we're still going to have to rely on the passing game if we stand a chance of winning out - which still feels pretty far fetched to me - but getting closer with each win.
At this point - REX's job is pretty well assured. I think at this point - the need for a talent evaluating GM is pretty clear - so UNLESS the unthinkable happens, and we win the "you-know-what," I think this change is assured (KOW), but I could be wrong.
