After what I saw of Geno last weekend there's literally no shot the Jets win Week 1 if the rumors are true about Sanchez being out. There's also no chance they win 6-7 home games, they've never been a good home team.

Beez made a mistake on the schedule (Jets' game against Pitt is at home, not on the road)...he's got them going 6-2 at home, 3-5 on the road.  9-7 seems generous...somewhere between 5-11 and 7-9 seems more realistic.  If the Jets go .500 this season, and split with the Patriots, I'll think they did a hell of a job.

Yeah I saw 6-1 and knew there was a game missing somewhere, but that stood out either way. Other than '98 we always seem to be 3-5 to 5-3 at best at home.

Yep, agreed with this, 5 to 7 win season is my expectation. Sanchez stinks, Geno hasn't looked ready, and the offensive talent around them leaves a lot to be desired. Two of the better skillplayers are either hurt (Holmes) or prone to getting hurt (Ivory). The defense should keep them in games but it's tough to imagine even a .500 team. That's probably the ceiling here if things go right (eg: Holmes comes back with no issues, Ivory stays relatively healthy, one of Sanchez/Geno give them below average-but-not-Matt Cassel/Brady Quinn-bad QB play, etc.).

Agree nmig, I think they'll be more competitive within games than people think...they'll hang around in some third quarters against superior teams and have those teams' fans muttering to themselves...I think they'll make one of their two games against the Pats interesting (like last season).  But yeah, can't see them winning less than 5 (I don't think this season is going to be nearly as bad for the Jets as the 3 and 4 win crowd seems to think), and winning more than 7.

Saints cut Jim Leonhard..
..as I said weeks ago, this has less to do with Jimmy's skill, and WAY more to do with NO's massive depth @ FS & SS. Wouldn't shock me of the Jets scoop him up tomorrow.

Yes could call on that Beez. I hope the Jets scoop up Leonhard to shore up the safety position.

 

Also, they cut Obomanu and kept Harrell? Huh? Obomanu looked very good in pre season and we still have Simms behind Smith.

 

Could mean Holmes is ready to go week 1, or they just scoop up Braylon again.

Jets sign Brady Quinn lol (cuttting Harrell)...looks like the injury to Sanchez is worse than they're letting on too, joy.  Now we have to throw Geno - who clearly isn't ready - to the wolves unless they nut up and start Matt Simms :P

I think Geno at his age and experience level, likely beat out Sanchez for the job anyway just by going by training camp stats. What does that say about Sanchez going into his 5th year? At least Smith has plenty of room for improvement. If he's even with Sanchez now, then I'm fine with starting him even if he's "not ready". It means Sanchez is not ready either.

 

Quinn and Simms at 2 and 3...fine with that.

Geno starting the season is a disaster waiting to happen imo.  If you started Sanchez at least you could know he's disposable in a worst-case then bring Geno in after 5-6 games to be the savior with far less pressure.  However, the pressure'll be intense off the hop now.  A 3-4 INT game in Week 1 with Revis likely getting at least one will get everyone thinking 'same ol' nonsense'.  As Sanchez has shown, once you fall in a hole with the NY crowd it's pretty hard to get out.  That preseason game with the Giants already threw out a bunch of red flags.

 

Plus what happens if Geno bombs the first 5-6 games?   You can't very well go back to Sanchez as a dead man walking.

The other reason starting Geno Smith right now might be a disaster is because he's not a good quarterback to begin with.

Not sure if Jets fans are familiar with Manish Mehta, but this is the clown that Chris Christie, when Christie made an appearance on the WFAN, ripped on about a week ago...of course, with the media being the incestuous protective clan that they are, Lupica and others immediately came to his defense.

 

Well, here's the latest bit of nonsense this complete zilch of a "sports journalist" came up with:

 

http://www.nydailyne...ticle-1.1444054

 

In a way, I know me even mentioning this is a win for both Mehta and the NY Daily News, because he's a tabloid writer working for a tabloid paper, and the ONLY thing a rag outfit like that cares about is that you're talking about its authors and/or articles...doesn't matter if it's good or bad, just talk.  But this Mehta - clearly yet another wanna-be who was probably always the last one picked to play ANY sport when he was a kid, when he actually WAS picked - is a complete joke of a beat writer, an absolute assclown, much in mold of Neverson.  Same as Neverson, whenever this douche wants to try to support an idea of his, he goes to the good ol' standby "a source says...sources say...blah blah blah"...as we all know, once a writer does that, he can say just about anything he wants...doesn't matter if it's at all true or factual.  But it's the whole central theme of the article that is so off-base...heaven forbid Rex actually goes to his son's friggin' FOOTBALL game (may be the only one he's able to get to this season) without some wanna-be little zilch nudge writer jumping all over him for it, and trying to make a story out of it. 

 

And these pen-chewing DORKS (and that's what most of these sportswriters are, unathletic dorks who haven't the slightest idea about what it's really like to play in sporting events at the highest level, let alone coach or build to try to build a winning team, but seem to know exactly what these athletes and everyone else involved should be doing on and off the field at all times), probably still harboring bitterness that they were never allowed to play, come up with articles like this that are nothing but just pure absolute garbage, dreck and drivel...and they wonder why some athletes don't want to spare them so much as an innocuous quote.  As much as Tortorella could be a douche in his own right, one only has to read Larry Brooks' articles and see him to understand why Torts wanted nothing to do with him.

Most fans on the Jets board I post on absolutely cannot stand Mehta (or Rich Cimini for that matter). They see these guys as having an agenda and being arrogantly negative all the time. However just cause they always go the anon source route doesn't mean they don't have someone feeding them info too. It became the world's most well known secret that former defensive coordinator Mike Pettine was the source for most of Mehta's hack jobs last year.

That said it is a bit unusual to skip out on cut day, at least it seems that way just from watching Hard Knocks, maybe the coach isn't in the room for every single cut but he's usually around for at least some. And there is some truth to the 'Rex has been muzzled' theory when you compare his demeanor and openness from a couple years ago till now. But if the organization gave its blessing to Rex not being there then ultimately it's not a big deal.

FWIW, Mike Golic said, under the circumstances, it's not that big a deal. 

 

Otherwise, the article is crap.  It's not that hard to find an anonymous source to say something bad about someone. 

 

Things like this are only a fiasco because a few guys with keyboards say it is.

Manish is getting killed by just about everybody these days.. but the fact that he's now getting ripped in today's article by his fellow people is telling. He's completely lost his credibility, and now his peers are distancing themselves from him.

Won't be long now before he's moved off the beat. His blog comments are bare.. his tweets never get retweeted anymore.. and judging by the way he posts the same link to what he wrote 6 times, his hit count(s) for his articles must be low too.
