In Topic: Nice article on Scott Clemmensen

His run in 08-09 kept the team a "contender"

 

..that was the apex for Mr. Clemmensen.. his 15 minutes of fame. Top 10 stats for most of the year, nominated for the Masterton Trophy, selected to Team USA for the World Championships, awarded Unsung Hero from his Devil peers.. it was such a great underdog story, you never wanted it to end.

When the season started, no one could've predicted that Clemmer was going to play 40 games (losing only 13) and have a Sv% nearly .920 to end the year. VERY happy that he's back in New Jersey behind Schneidz. :thumbsup:

In Topic: NFL Week 2!!!

Anheiser-Busch basically fired a warning shot to the NFL that they better get their sh!t together. This after Radisson pulled their sponsorship from the Vikings. The corporate sponsors are getting pissed. The league is REALLY gonna start squirming now.

 

..according to WFAN, PepsiCo has also voiced concern, aswell as Nike.

 

This is how Roger Goodell will ultimately fall on the sword. Every judgment that Goodell has acted on (or failed to act on) is currently being brought into question by the court of public opinion. From the Rice fiasco, all the way to his handling of the "Redskins" name earlier this year. The NFL has done a splendid job ignoring negative attention.. however, when dollars & cents begin to downtempo, THAT's when you'll hear the owners change their tune. Once one sponsor drops\decreases their advertisement(s), it will be a domino effect. Goodell will be the sacrificial lamb, with the next Commissioner trumpeted in as the savior who'll "clean up" the NFL.

Our running game was supposed to dominate the Packers D too.  We did get some yardage but it was misleading, since a lot of it came on Geno scrambles and the lead option pitch to Kerley.  We couldn't really get yards between the tackles when we needed them and freaking Powell looked better than either of the other two heads on the monster.

 

The runs that were executed were poorly designed by MM. I'm not one put the entire blame on any ONE person after a loss, (and lord knows, Marty is the best OC we've had in 11 years) but this was head-&-shoulders Mornhinweg's worst called game in his short tenure with the Jets.

That last 2-minute drive to end the first half told the whole story. The Jets recover the ball at mid-field, on a blown onsides kick.. and the next 4 plays are: throw, throw, throw.... and, throw?? :noclue: The last 10 minutes were completely dominated by Green Bay. They had all the momentum, as the lead continued to shrink from 21-3.. to 21-6.... 21-9.. and now the Jets have the ball with 2 minutes left @ the 50 yrd line, and you're calling passing plays??! JUST GET THE FVCK OUT OF THE 2ND QUARTER, AND HEAD INTO HALFTIME!!!! RUN THE BALL!! --if you get a 1st down, then fine.. but at least if you don't move the chains, you can kill the clock to leave Green Bay with no time to strike. After all, we were going to start the 3rd quarter with the ball anyway. Instead, Geno throws a pick to allow the Packers, who score yet ANOTHER touchdown, and the lead shrinks to 6 points!!! It was a 10 point swing, where the Jets should've at least headed into halftime up 24-9.

Who would have thought Buffalo 2-0 and New Orleans 0-2 though :P


The Bills don't scare me in the least. Miami beat themselves today, and Buffalo got GROSSLY lucky in OT last week aswell. Their defense has allowed 750 yrds over the last 2 weeks.. and it would've been closer to 800 if Moreno had played for the fish today. And don't be fooled over the fact that they've put up 52 points these last two weeks either.. because of those points, only 2 TD's in 2 games came from their actual offense. If the Jills continue to allow 400 yrds a game, and score 1 TD.. they'll come back down to earth sooner rather than later.
This is textbook Bills. Since 2011, Buffalo has a record of 10-3 through the month of September.. and 4-7 come October. Their schedule may be flattering now, but they end their season against Rodgers, Peyton, & Brady.. ¾ games on the road.

..the AFC East still runs through Foxboro.

..of the 31 points that Green Bay scored, 28 came within a span of 13 minutes between the 2nd & 3rd quarters. To compare.. the Packers scored a total of 3 points between the 1st quarter and 4th quarter combined! This..... simply.... can't...... happen!
When you squander an 18 point lead, you deserve to lose the game. When you begin the 2nd quarter up 21-3, then walk into halftime 21-17.. you deserve to lose the game. When your defense allows 400 yrds, and your QB only throws for 170.. you deserve to lose the game.

The Jets deserved to lose this game. I can go to sleep tonight feeling contempt for my beloved team, NOT regret.. and that's why nothing else about the game is bothersome to me. Not the sloppy penalties.. not the poor officiating.. not even the timeout at the end. Because it NEVER... should've...... EVER..... gotten to that point! Ever!! This game should've been put away by halftime. But between poor execution, poor quarterback play, and poor coaching by BOTH Marty & Rex.. they allowed momentum to take effect, and thus, they allowed the Packers to get back in the game.

..looking ahead, not the end of the world here. The Jets get an extra day of rest\prep, and are about to go home - where they play great - to beatable Bears team.
Who knows, maybe this loss is the best thing that'll happen to the Jets. All you can hope for after tonight, is this game humbled them. It made the players\coaches more focused, and underscored that: it takes 60 minutes to win a football game.. not just 46. They can dwell on that during the plane ride back to NJ. They can also dwell on the fact that they could've been 2-0 right now.. but THEY blew it.
