Well this stinks.

@TGfireandice: Sounds like prospect Steve Santini will miss world juniors for U.S. Having surgery on his wrist today. Not expected back til January.

Unconfirmed, but pretty credible sources saying that Doug Martin has been traded to Miami.  It better be for a low draft pick.

 

EDIT:  Bwaha, scratch that.  :doh1:

I lost my fantasy match-up by .3 points (120.4-120.1) because I couldn't get ONE MORE DeMarco Murray carry. Just ONE MORE carry for like 4 fvcking yards would've done it. But no. No. Nope. Of course not. I guess it doesn't help that I got goose eggs from both Torrey Smith and the Arizona defense, while leaving 24 points from Brandin Cooks on my bench. Unfvckingbelivable.

 

Whatever, this is nothing compared to losing the championship game by less than a point, thanks to a meaningless garbage time seven yard reception by Jason Witten.

..at this point, I think the Rex & Idzik's outcome(s) will be the same. If Idzik is allowed to come back for one last chance to correct everything, then Rex is allowed to return next season also. If Rex gets fired, then I genuinely believe Idzik follows him out the door aswell.

It is telling that @ 1-7 they're turning to Michael Vick, because: if both Idzik & Ryan truly were coming back next season no-matter-what, you would think they would stick it out with Geno, OR.. at least see what they have in Simms. The fact that they're going to Vick leads me to believe that they're both fighting for their jobs at this point. If the Jets finish 8-8, or even 7-9.. then Idzik & Ryan can both say; "Hey, we went 6-2 the rest of the way with a decent QB." --that may indeed be enough to convince Woody that the problem all along was just Geno.

 

 

..yeah, and guess what: WHO THE FVCK CARES?!? Chicago didn't draft Cutler, Buffalo didn't draft Orton, KC didn't draft Alex Smith, Denver didn't draft Peyton, the Saints didn't draft Brees, Houston didn't draft Ryan Fitzpatrick.... shall I continue???

I am ssssooooooooooo sick and tired of hearing about how the Jets MUST draft a franchise quarterback, so that they can have him for 20 fvcking years! Meanwhile everytime they try (Sanchez, Clemmens, Pennington, Geno, O'Brien, etc) it CONSTANTLY blows up in their face. The draft isn't the ONLY way to acquire a franchise QB, and other teams continue to prove that. JUST GET US A DECENT FVCKING FRANCHISE QB!!!! Certainly I would LOVE IT if the Jets were able to find a Luck, or a Ryan, or a young QB that they can cultivate into one of the NFL's best.. but that hasn't happened!!! It hasn't happened in 40 years! So please... STOP continuing to roll the dice every fvcking 3-4 years via the draft. If you can't find one through the draft, then trade for one. If you can't trade for one, then wait until someone is a UFA and pay them a fortune. I don't care anymore!

 

..if I were the Jets, I would use this time to see if Vick can be that guy. I'm not even kidding. If he sucks or gets hurt, then whatever. You're back to square one. But if Vick plays ridiculous the rest of the way, and shows he can stay healthy.. THEN SIGN HIM FOR NEXT SEASON! He's 34 years old. You might get lucky and be able to have him for another 2-3 years.

 

It's just as difficult to get something like a franchise QB via trade or free agency.  Teams that have those types of players tend to hang on to them or ask you for the shirt off your back in a trade.  The Phins have mainly gone that route with hilarious consequences like Daunte Culpepper, Gus Ferotte, Cleo Lemon, and Ray Lucas.  The best we did was with Pennington, and that wasn't sustainable.

Garbage... Really hate that player, he's been given free reign, even by our Devils. If he runs Schneider, no one outside of maybe Salvador will lift a finger, the way our team is structured. Our response after Nash ran Schneider last week was pathetic.

 

 

Retaliating against a player for running your goalie is silly.  First, no one who does that intentionally is afraid of actually being roughed up afterwards.  So a guy like Salvador wrestles with you or you get the sweaty glove in your face, BFD.  Second, the more you retaliate, the more likely you get the penalty, which would really only encourage him to run your goalie even more.  The retaliation is what made Avery effective, but the lack of retaliation tended to get him in more trouble.
