Well, Brady had his worst season in a while last year stat wise. His qb rating has been in a steady decline since 2010. But he is still miles ahead of what we've got (or Buffalo)

 

I don't know what to expect out of NE this year. They may well be in the Super Bowl again. They have a renewed focus on defense, but they're very "win now" when it comes to the ages of guys like Wilfork, Mankins, and Connolly. And who know what Revis is planning after this season. But I don't think in the NFL you can predict 3 years down the road. Except for Buffalo, I have no faith in anything they do.

 

The QB rating thing is tricky...the first year of that four-year period (36 TD and 4 INT) was based on good fortune...he WAS good that year, but he could've had 8-10 picks easily...opposing DBs dropped some easy INTs.  Last season, he and his receivers clearly weren't on the same page.  His QB rating was also a LOT higher with Gronk in the lineup.  But a guy in a late-30s can't be considered a lock to continue to perform...I don't care who he is. 

 

And yes, they are in full win-now mode.  That was shown conclusively when they brought in Revis.

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.

He's back with them. I have a friend who works for the Jets who said it was some sort of anxiety/panic attack...but who knows

 

Rumor monger Manish Mehta is intimating he (Patterson) went AWOL cause he was annoyed at dropping on the depth chart.  Not that I trust Mehta but if that's true there shouldn't even be any debate about cutting him.

I know it's not fashionable to say this in the stat obsessed world these days, but the great QBs will win a lot of games in every season until they can't.  (This is different from the number of Super Bowl wins, which has a much more significant luck factor).   Brady (and Belichek) led teams, as far back as I can remember, are always good for at least ten wins regardless of who is on the roster at any given time.  So until Brady physically starts to decline in a signficant way, I see no reason why that won't continue.   Then the question becomes is whether you think any other team in the AFC East is at least a ten win (or more likely eleven) team, which is what it would take to at least have the same record as the Patriots without regard to tie breakers.  I just don't see it.  I expect the Dolphins to go 7-9.  With a few significant injuries, they could be as bad as 5-11.  I don't know enough to make a prediction for the Jets and Bills, except to say that I think ten wins for either of them is a stretch.

 

Otherwise, the thing that sucks about rooting against the Patriots is that they're always a win now team.

I would say I'm mostly sold on Geno. I like his work ethic, he's supposedly a very heavy student of the game when it comes to homework and film prep. He can make all the throws, he can run it, he's read defenses much better this pre-season.

 

JETS_zps3eb7a97c.png

 

Try as hard as I can to WANT to like Geno.. I just can't get past these 3 games in-a-row from last season. The organization really needs to explain wtf happened.. and "rookie brain fart" just ain't gonna cut for me.

If he was dealing with some family\personal issue, fine. If he was playing hurt or through some undisclosed injury, that's fine too. But you got to tell me something.. anything, besides "just a bad stretch" of weeks. There are bad games in the NFL.. and then there are REALLY BAD GAMES. These games were putrid.. the worst performance I've ever seen by a QB in my entire life. (not withstanding, we finished 8-8.. really makes you think what might have been with this team)

 

I'm just very concerned seeing a string of games that bad boomerang back from GS.

 

Apparently Samuel is a long shot to be signed because of age.. and asking price.

 

..the only thing I can think of is that Idzik is waiting on a trade, and\or a Champ Bailey player being cut after this weekend. If neither happens.. I will be extremely upset if the Jets don't go out and sign SOMEONE. You got proven players like Asante Samuel & Quinton Jammer out there available with 20+ million to spend.. and you ain't gonna bring one of them in?!? Unacceptable.. sorry.

Oh yea. That stretch was repulsive and I was openly questioning his ability to play the game at this level back then. 

 

Something HAS to happen or else Idzik is going to really feel the heat. We're playing Manning, Brady (x2) Rodgers, Stafford, Cutler this year. Guys like Marshall and Jeffrey will get 200 yards apiece on us if we don't at least try to patchwork this secondary available. I know he's been criticized at moving at a glacial pace with little urgency...but if he doesn't pick up at least 1 guy (I would go for 2) it would be gross negligence.

On the Jets board I sometimes post on/lurk they keep harping on rollover cap money and how the Jets need to save cap space to re-up Mo and others.  Problem I have with this rationale is the Jets were supposedly in on every corner known to man and came up short, it's not like saving cap space was the only reason they didn't go sign someone.  They didn't even bring in patchwork vets like Flowers or Samuel.

Last season, the Jets signed fan-favorite Braylon Edwards to a 1 yr *prove it* contract. He was enthusiastic at the opportunity to play with rookie Geno Smith, and help the young player get more acclimated to the NFL. Braylon was sharp, he was motivated. He came in 18 pounds lighter to be a quicker, more elusive player. Yet despite the fact that he had a great training camp and an impressive preseason.. Braylon never got the chance to prove it, due to a “youth movement” the Jets opted to go with instead. On cut day, the Jets front office explained to their fans why it made more sense to go with players like: Ryan Spadola, Clyde Gates, and Stephen Hill.. and thus, Braylon was released. The result? -- Ryan Spadola, Clyde Gates, and Stephen Hill COMBINED for: 468 yrds & 1 TD last season.

By the time Tuesday morning rolls around, all 3 players will be unemployed UFA’s this season (take that to the bank) and seem bound for wonderful career(s) in the CFL. I’m not certain how well Braylon Edwards would have done had he made the cut on the 2013 New York Jets. But something tells me he would’ve had at least one touchdown pass. :thumbsup: 

..the point! 10x out of 10.. I’ll take the experienced veteran, playing with a gigantic chip on his shoulder who has something to prove.. over the doe eye’d rookie, who looks great against 3rd stringers in the preseason.. but is in over his head when the real lights are on.

And the Jets cut Patterson lol...I guess the last straw was him publicly taking issue with the story that he was out of touch with the team.

Ian Rappaport speculating that the Jets are interested in Champ Bailey.. and it could basically come down between either us or Baltimore.

John Idzik, who seemingly dropped the ball on DRC, Davis, Revis, Talib, Cromartie, Samuel, and Flowers.. finally poised to sign someone @ Corner? Or will the long list of CB strikeouts continue? #StayTuned

Wouldn't shock me if he chooses Baltimore over us, but Idzik MUST be aggressive and go all out to get Bailey. Yes he's old, yes his skills have eroded somewhat. But he is a cagey vet who can still play the position competently. And he's better than anyone we've got. Idzik can't move at a glacial pace here. The Jets are desperate and he needs to act it.

 

As for Hill...I may have given him another year to prove his worth, but he's had so much trouble holding on to the damn ball and frankly has been outplayed by Salas. No tears for his departure. They have given him 2 full seasons and he's been nothing more than injury prone and unreliable

Jets have picked up Leon McFadden who was cut from the Browns. McFadden was 3rd round pick last season but they gave up on him early.

 

Also Matt Simms has been added to the practice squad, which is good. Looks like the Jets will be dressing 2qb's all year, which I like since it opens up another roster spot for a special teamer or secondary player.

 

Tajh Boyd also cut. Good riddance.

He was really more of a fringe 2nd rounder.. borderline anyway, having been selected only 3 picks into the 3rd round. I'm cautiously optimistic about signing McFadden. The Browns message boards seem to be blindsided with how an organization can cut a 23 year old player, who they literally just drafted last season. He played all 16 games, so durability shouldn't be an issue.

Leon's raw, very raw.. and if Rex can polish his skills somewhat, this could be a quality 2nd string CB for the Jets.

Jets release Ellis Lankster, a solid 2nd string CB for Gang Green since 2011. He's played 40 games with the Jets.. is one of Rex's favorite DB's.. and versitle enough to contribute heavily in special teams..

..have no idea wtf Idzik is doing anymore, I really don't.

Yea I don't get this either. Lankster was good on special teams and fine in select coverage roles. They ended up signing A.J. Edds (who to his credit was good in the preseason, but is a LB)  They also signed Phillip Adams (cb) as another patchwork guy

 

I hope Lankster finds himself back on the team somehow

..it's insane, and it begs the question of a plot against Ryan.
The media is stunned over EL being shown the door. They're eating Idzik alive, and rightfully so..

https://mobile.twitt...591778695561217

https://mobile.twitt...591466161184768

If it's individual talent that the Jets are looking for, then you go out and sign a guy like Asante Samuel or Q. Jammer.. not a guy like McFadden. If it's chemistry that you want.. then you don't sign Philip Adams over Lankster. Lankster knew the system, and now he's gone for Week 1, just like Milliner is out for Week 1. In fact, of the 5 remaining CB's left on the roster.. only Walls & Wilson will have the experience of playing through the preseason and training-camp with the Jets, when we play the Raiders in Week 1. That is absolutely unacceptable.

I know this may sound crazy, but I genuinely feel Idzik is in trouble if the Jets suck because of a lack of secondary this season. I said the same thing about Mike T, and I was right. Idzik's swing and misses on free agents are bad enough. But his UFA signings like Goodson, Winslow, Gerrard, Peterson.. REALLY make you scratch your head. He might be a good cap guy, but his talent evaluation is suspect. And if the end game in all of this is to hire his own HC.. you have to be more discreet about it. You can't make a set-up as obvious as he's making it by starving your Head Coach of CB's. Woody loves Rex with all his heart. If he smells sabotage, he'll pink slip Johnny boy much sooner than Ryan.

Cimino's quote (the first link):

Lankster actually started at CB in the second preseason game. Thought he did a decent job. The CB situation in utter chaos.

 

Walder's quote (the second link):

Jets needed ILB help, but I'm surprised it's Lankster that was cut.

 

The first guy says the CB situation is a mess, the second one is surprised that Lankster was cut.  Not one direct mention of Idzik in either post, so how exactly is he "being eaten alive"?  That statement isn't accurate at all.

 

He may be back on the team anyway...stranger things have happened.

John Idzik is getting EATEN ALIVE by every single one of the Jets beat writers in NY & NJ. --period!

 

..that is not an inaccurate statement, that is dead-on-balls how it is.. and for you to even question that, shows that you don't read the Jets boards, post on Jets forums, follow Jets media on twitter.. or watch\listen\read\etc. anything media related regarding the Jets. Whether it's Manish Mehta, Seth Walder, Gary Myers, Brian Costello, Rich Cimini, Peter Schwartz, Christopher Nimbley, every single show on WFAN.. anyone and everyone with a pen & paper following the Jets.. they've utterly destroyed Idzik's approach on the CB situation this season. (some even calling for him to be fired) --and any Jets fan can tell you that.

 

I posted the 2 links off the basis of Ellis Lankster (the topic at hand) to showcase how the release left the media bewildered. My comment on Idzik getting killed in the media, didn't need to be followed with any links\sources, because every Jets fan already knows that. Had I posted every tweet criticizing Idzik on the secondary, I'd already be 600 deep, with about 200 that I may have missed.

The two links you posted didn't support your "eaten alive" point, and that's all I was saying.  Maybe you should post links to articles or media statements that better support your point that he's being eaten alive.  I'm not saying such articles and statements don't exist, I'm saying the two links you provided just weren't very good examples of that.  But yeah, I've heard Joe and Evan's opinion of Idzik, and suffice it to say it's not glowing.

This game was 30-3 Jets masquerading as 19-14

 

- Geno as a pure drop-back passer was tremendous today. Made great reads, threw some gorgeous passes with plenty of zip, hit receivers in stride. Great job. The one pick was a spectacular play by a future Hall of Famer in Woodson. Whatever, he's still young and that sh!t will happen from time to time

 

-MM too damn cutesy in the red zone! You don't become a mad scientist when the team is inside the 5. Flea flickers with Vick, Geno with read option BS. On one of the option plays he fumbled but his knee was clearly down before the ball came out, for some reason the ball was handed to Oakland anyway. Which brings me to...

 

-REFS. Atrocious job by the rookie ref. Now granted some of the stuff was on us an inexcusable. Personal foul on Pace. Jumping offsides. But there were some idiotic offensive pass interferences called on Decker which just flat out did not happen. As well as a personal foul on Colon (and I know he is a walking penalty flag) that I didn't even see and they didn't replay. Lots of questionable calls...plus our defensive line was held all day and nothing was called on Oakland all game

 

-Another pet peeve with Geno. Please do not take 20 yard sacks to knock us out of field goal range

 

-Cumberland was a good receiving threat all day. Was a nice security blanket for Geno

 

-They started with Johnson and finished with Ivory. Lightning and thunder. Softened the Raiders up and finished them.

 

- Jets TACKLING was flat out better. Raiders tried to set up nifty screes...all shut down at the line. Raiders couldn't break a big play all game...we brought them down at first contact. Jones-Drew did nothing

 

-Jets corners were fine today. Can't blame Walls on that late TD to Jones because that catch was absolutely spectacular and fluke-ish.
