Three straight losses at home after opening with three straight wins on the road would be hilarious if it wasn't so freaking sad.

 

What is hilarious however, is Cousin Eddie's look-a-like.. :giggle:

We've been losing games on 'bad luck' for two years now.  Last year it was the shootout, the year before it was the shooting percentage...  At SOME point we have to accept: this team is either extremely flawed, or mismanaged.

 

I'd like to see another Head Coach have a crack at this roster, before I determine it being; "flawed". This is the 4th season for DeBoer, and I've never seen a HC be granted so many cop-outs\mulligans\excuses in my life. I think it's fair to say that the clock is ticking.

We were all impressed with how well the Devils started this season. But that's over now. Negated, by a losing streak, where we're taking alot of undisciplined penalties, blown leads, and allowing 14 goals over the last 3 games.

 

Everyone was upset how we started the season last year. 1 win through 10 games. Guess what? --we've won only 2 more this season, with Game No. 7 on Friday. (and a deeper roster) I'm not going to call the game against Dallas a "must-win" ..but if we don't find a way to win, that's 4 losses in-a-row.. with Ottawa & Pittsburgh on deck after.

Jets resign J`Kerl to a very cap-friendly 4 year ext. Very pleased with this move.

 

EDIT: --seemingly out of nowhere, all of a sudden Idzik is spending money. I wonder why? :giggle:  :whistling:

Broadway Brett the Jet, had some ringing comments to say about Percy Harvin for Jet fans.. :thumbsup:

"I was surprised that trade happened, [Harvin to the Jets] to be honest with you. I have no idea why it happened. Percy was a good guy in the locker room. Really quiet, kept to himself. You know, he had a migraine issue, so.. I don't really know where that is. But I'm really not at a position to make many comments because I don't know other than what my dealings were with Percy, and they were great. I thought he was an outstanding player. The New York media may try to pick him apart over there. How he will react to that, I have no idea. You know, I would be assuming anything. But, hopefully they will protect him a little bit as he transitions into the rest of this season, and he can just play. That's going to be easier said than done. He can be a little combative, but I say that in a good way. Percy's all about doing whatever he can to help the team win, and he is tough as nails. And, really, that's all he cares about. So if you start picking him apart.. I don't want to say he can turn against you.. but. He's just tough. I really liked him as a player and as a person." -- Brett Favre

Now with Decker, Harvin, Kerley, and Amaro/Cumberland.. I can say for the first time in a long time the Jets receiving corps are above average.

 

I'd argue that it's been about 5 years (Tone, Bray & J`Co) since we've had WR's like this.

..the timing of this trade is what strikes me the most. It's almost like the front office said: "Look.. with the exception of San Diego, we've been in every one of these games. We've had leads in every game. We're losing by 1 possession. Let's see what happens if we add a player like Percy at the exact moment we're going up against QB's like Orton, Bridgewater, Tannehill, Locker\Whitehurst, etc."

 

You have to admit 7, the defenses we've been going up against have all been Top 10. We put up 61 points against the Pats, Broncos, and Lions (statistically the 7th, 4th & 1st best defenses in the league) without Harvin or a 100% Decker. The addition to a guy like Harvin, coupled with NOT having to go up against QB's like: Rodgers, Rivers, Brady, Cutler, Peyton, etc.. could be a 4-5 point swing going forward. I'm not saying we'll go on this magically 9-0 run and make the playoffs. But after a 1-6 start, I would say a 7-9, 8-8 record to end the year would be an enormous success.
