Despite the looming uncertainty when the current collective bargaining agreement lapses, I still feel confident the Jets (as an organization) are headed in the right direction. We've got great young talent, with veteran presence.. an above average GM.. an owner who doesn't mind putting his hand in his pocket.. and Rex Ryan who.. like him or not, is going to be the Jets version of Andy Reid imo. (as far as longevity) If they can lock'up 90% of their UFA's next season, and add a legitimate pass-rusher.. the sky's the limit. Last season we finished with the #1 ranked defense in the NFL under 'RR.. and this season (despite all the negative bullsh!t from the skeptics) we finished #3 overall in the league. Quite a drop-off I must say. :rolleyes:
The foundation is there, it just needs to be properly cultivated.


Definitely agree with the bolded statement, they have the foundation.

But the bottom line is that the Jets will only go as far as the Sanchize takes them. It's my belief, based on the rule changes in the NFL, that too much has to go right at once for a ground and pound team to be successful at a high level. Their defense needs to be top five all year long, and the running game has to be tops in the NFL. In that respect, the 2009 Jets might have been the perfect storm of that approach. I applaud the Jets for beginning to take the training wheels off of Sanchez, sometimes at the expense of wins, but years 3-4 are coming, barring a work stoppage, and these are the "put up or shut up" years for Mark. It takes a lot for a team to reach a Super Bowl, let alone win one, but if the Jets, as constructed, don't make the AFC title game by the end of the fourth year, with the likely resigning of Holmes (keep him over Edwards, IMO, if you have to choose) and the addition of a speed back/resigning of LT, then either the injury bug killed the team or Sanchez has not improved enough and needs to go.

I guess everyone's too jacked up to post in the thread today :lol:

Wow, just wow. Game balls all around, starting with the O-line for manning up in the 2nd half. Tomlinson got rid of his playoff demons, Greene ran it really well too. Braylon made a couple of huge plays, the D shut down Peyton in the first half other than that one mistake on the Garcon bomb then held him to FG's in the second half.

And for once the other team was the one having meltdowns in a big spot...that kid running into the kicker was Gastineau-like dumb. And Caldwell calling a timeout when the Jets looked like they were ready to settle for close to a 50-yard FG?! He might as well have saved it to ice Folk, instead it gave the Jets time to call a jump ball that made the difference.

Rex finally gets past Peyton, now the Jet team at least has a shot to vanquish the Patriot demon once and for all. I don't expect us to do it but at least they have an opportunity for redemption after 45-3.

I can't even begin to describe how idiotic that timeout by Jim Caldwell was. It was pretty much insane. He gave the Jets an extra timeout. There was absolutely no way that the Colts were getting the ball back. He called timeout at 33 seconds, so if he doesn't call it they won't get a play off until 23 seconds and you make a young QB scramble. Instead, you stop the clock and give the coaches a chance to call their best play. Absolutely crazy.

It may look like it was a stupid time out by Caldwell in hindsight. I think Caldwell took the time out because he may have felt a booth review was coming after the last catch by the Jets receiver was close to being out of bounds (brilliant play to get both feet down BTW). Had there been a review and the catch been overturned, the Jets would have been on the very limit of Folk's FG range regardless of what down it was. It's easy to second guess a coach from your armchair...

Agree with DR33. Might as well have saved that to ice the kicker. Would've been a lot more effective. And on top of that you make the Jets call timeout there, so the can't let it wind down later

Uh no, Caldwell took his timeout BEFORE that play, when the Jets had just had a one-yard run on first down with the clock running on 2nd and 9 from about the 30-32 yard line. It was beyond idiotic, there was no reason to take a timeout there.

And the jets clock management was good in this game. If Rex called a timeout to ice vinateri, I would have lost it!


Yep, his time management's always been iffy but he was good today, calling the timeout on second down to save clock and not calling the stupid timeout to ice a kicker that can't be iced (although you could tell he was fighting the urge on the sideline lol).

++++++++++++++
We were all sitting here watching going "WTF" Why is the clock not running when they cut to Manning saying the same thing. This was the worst timeout taken this year! FOR SURE! Awful use giving the Jets a breather there!!

Moronic. And yet another flukey Win in the Jets W column. They did have a good game Defensively, I'll admit, but C'MON MAN! You don't call timeout there!!!!

Here's hoping the Pats and Belichick have another heapin helpin of ASS WHOOPIN in store for them next weekend!!!!

GO PATS GO!!!

There.

Good game. Sanchez still looks like sh!t....but a win nonetheless. Caldwell is a terrible clock mismanagement....

Folk with ice in the veins.

I think their run comes to a halting screech in Foxboro though. Brady is doing big things...

........Last season Peyton Manning blocked the Jets path to the Superbowl. A year later.. turnabout's fair-play. :uni:
...........Posted Image

-------------------------------

....revenge is sweet. :yea:
Just a great game all around. Top to bottom, the Jets played their hearts out. Greene with 70 yrds off nearly 20 carries.. LT with 80 yrds off nearly 20 carries. THAT's the type of ground & pound football you have to play in the playoffs, when you've got a 2nd year QB. Win or lose next week, these games are invaluable to the kids experience. Next Sunday will be Sanchez's 5th playoff game! He has lost only one in his career. He's getting on the job training, that will only further his development going forward.
Another game of' "the tale of two halves" type circumstances. Without question, the Jets looked horrible in the 1st half. But the 2nd half was a different football team wearing the green & white all together. The defense looked amazing.. the o'line looked amazing.. everything just seemed to be running perfectly. Braylon "stone`hands" Edwards with the play of the game. Nick Folk! What else can you say? 3 seconds left, and if you miss it.. it's over! The pressure he must've endured prior to kicking that FG had to have been immense. Perhaps a little angel named Aiden willed that ball through the upright for the Jets.

So now the Jets head into Foxboro next Sunday.. where the 10-day forecast is already calling for snow, and a low of 19°. A victory will advance the Jets to the exact same place they were last year.. the Final Four! :clap: We all know what's going to be written\said all week long, heading into this game. The Pats are unstoppable.. They've won 12 out of their last 13 games.. 45-3 embarrassment the last time the Jets were there.. October 17th; the last time Brady threw a pick.. etc.. :blahblah:
..so we shouldn't even come to play right? Maybe we'll stay home and forfeit the game. :rolleyes: Whatever the case may be..

..and then there were 6. Who goes to the Superbowl?


Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
..and then there were 5. Who's going to the Superbowl?

Food for thought: --Since becoming head coach for the New York Jets.. Rex Ryan's win\lose record (including playoffs) stands @ *23-13, with 1 AFC Championship appearance. *Bill Parcells' Jets record over his first 36 games coached?? *23-13, with 1 AFC Championship appearance. --spooky! :blink:
..is 'RR the best head coach the Jets have had since Tuna?

---------------

EDIT: This is in no way a slight to Brad Smith.. but anyone starting to think that with Westhoff @ the helm, ANYONE can be a successful KR on the New York Teams Special Teams?
First it was Justin Miller.. next it was Leon Washington.. then Brad Smith.. now Antonio Cromartie. :noclue:

Terrific all-around game by the Jets...I did think the Colts were going to win going in, but I thought the Jets had a fair shot...when their D is on, they can beat anyone. Pats-Jets is as compelling as it gets...

Although the goals are pretty lofty for the Jets right now, if they lose this week I don't think they have anything to be ashamed of...not easy to win three road playoff games in two postseasons...that's an impressive achievement in itself. Two unbelievable AFC matchups coming up...four teams with a very good chance to advance...Baltimore hosting the Jets wouldn't surprise me one bit...a #5 seed hosting a Conference Championship...crazy...

[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

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.
