and the jet obsession surfaces again

 

Holmes is playing well because he's healthy. He's also signed through next year

Devil's advocate...I'm willing to bet that if Holmes were a net negative, they'd eat the year of salary and/or find a way to distribute the hit over multiple years.  

 

But that said, he had a very good game.  That long touchdown play was a sick thread-the-needle play.

Holmes will be a cap casualty, he played his one game for the year. Injury/mediocre play to follow. Your up 7.

Congratulations. It was a great day for you indeed.

 

still, it's 1 game and 2-2 is no reason to overreact. Plenty of teams are in worse shape

Manta, what exactly is the point of all of this?  For one, I don't think Jets fans (with the exception of uberhomer Beezer) really were expecting that much from them this season...I think most would tell you 5-7 wins, depending on how things break.  They have a rookie QB who isn't in the "sure thing" class who is learning on the job.  There's going to be some ugly moments...that's usually how it goes for a lot of QBs who are thrown directly into action.  It's not like the Jets are sorely underachieving here...I'm guessing most Jets fans would've signed up for 2-2 for the first quarter of the season pretty willingly.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has decided to undergo season-ending surgery on his torn labrum. Sanchez hopes to delay surgery another week or two, but he knows that surgery is inevitable and that his season is over. Sanchez faces a 4-6 month recovery, according to a person informed of the rehabilation process.

bravo manta. so original and witty. I mean you can't even troll properly

 

The Jets thank you for your continuing obsession. One day try to find a team of your own. One that you can actually enjoy watching win MORE than reveling in the misfortune of the Jets (it's possible). Then the rest of us will maybe look at you as less of a pathetic loser.

I will consider the source.   As you seem to have a lot of projection issues as well as denial issues.

 

Wishful thinking on your part, but I am not making this up.   When the Jets came out of the tunnel that was the song that the Titans played.   So, I am not alone about the joke the Jets have become.

7's not the one going into other threads and constantly cackling about what a joke other teams are. We're not entitled to be a touch homeristic in a Jets thread? Someone needs to grow up here and it ain't 7.

Manta, again, with all due respect...what is the point of all of this?  I come in here to talk Jets football from time to time because my team plays the Jets twice a year, and they're my team's chief rival...but even when they're struggling, or my team is enjoying a blowout win against them, I don't come in here and start trolling.  The only guy I have a problem with in here is Beez, but everyone else in here is easy to talk football with, even if you're not a Jets fan. 

 

Again, were the Jets supposed to be good this year?  This was clearly supposed to be a "take-a-step-back-to-hopefully-take-steps-forward-in-the-seasons-to-come" type of year, with a new GM who probably wants his own head coach.  Yes, sometimes teams can surprise (and for the people who were predicting that the Jets would be a 3-win team, in a way they already HAVE surprised...they've won two games and were competitive against NE), but for the Jets, the one way that was going to happen over the course of a full season was if Geno Smith stepped right in and was able to play something like a veteran.  Well, he hasn't, but not too many rookie QBs have it all figured out right away...it takes time, reps, games, and mistakes (sometimes a lot of them) to learn from, to be able to improve.  And losing Holmes isn't going to help much. 

 

Though it's not my style, I could understand coming in here to bust balls a little if the Jets were expected to be some kind of powerhouse this season, and everyone in here was talking smack about how terrific they were going to be, but just about everyone in here was pretty realistic about their expectations.  Manta, you also had to know the Jets weren't going to be all that great this year, so why remind Jets fans of it constantly?  It's almost like going to a Houston Astros fansite and ripping on them daily...kind of pointless.

I think the point here is that Tennessee decided to use Benny Hill to intro the Jets, which is kind of a douche move by the Titans TBH.  I mean, I don't go to live NFL games, is that a thing to do?  I get it if it was like, say, the Texans, but it's not like the Jets and Titans are division rivals.

 

That the point got lost in MANTATROLL (quickly getting up there with MANTABLOCK) land is another conversation entirely.

They're just going along with the media/national meme for the last two years about the Jets being a joke and treating us as such.

 

And I don't remember us playing any satire music when we played the Bills last weekend.

With that win over the Falcons, the Jets now pretty much own NY for the rest of this season.  Win was huge for a number of reasons, but even more so because now Week 7's matchup (against the Pats) has juice no matter what happens next week:

 

If the Pats lose and the Jets win, both teams will be 4-2 (goes without saying that this is the ideal scenario for the Jets), BUT

 

Pats win/Jets win or Pats lose/Jets lose:  Jets have shot to tie in standings with a win

Pats win/Jets lose:  Jets STILL can pull to within one game with a win

 

Week 5's win was huge because the Jet fans will be 100% into this game no matter what now. 

 

And at the very least, Jet fans should be very proud of what their team did yesterday...they didn't do it alone (Miami and NE got the ball rolling), but the Jets delivered the final death-blow to the Falcons' season.  They could've walked out of there saying "Well, we gave them a hell of a scare", but they said "fvck that, we can still win this thing!", and did.
