..this is also a horse-sh!t excuse, and one that the PD Apologists use all too frequently. We're to give DeBoer a pass for the bad luck he's had.. but look the other way when it comes to the good luck?!?? :blink:

The BAD LUCK from losing all those shootout games, gets negated for the GOOD LUCK of winning an NHL record setting 13 shootouts in 2012. We were the 6th seed, with 13 extra points from the shootout.

 thats a fair point beez. im not a pdb appologist for the record. i just want the rotating door of coaches to stop for the devils. pdb is a hc in his 40s & i had hoped we could have someone here for a good 8-10 yrs. i still hope it works out for pdb here in nj

I think there's a misunderstanding of hatred\animosity, and genuine confusion among the fans. I don't hate Pete DeBoer.. I'm confused as to why he's been given such a long leash by Lamoriello, who's never been satisfied with sheer mediocrity.

Larry Robinson had a shelf-life.. Jacques Lemaire had a shelf-life. These Coaches won Cups in NJ, and still they had an expiration date. Kevin Constantine won 20 games of the 29 that he coached.. and he was let go of his duties. Claude Julien had a winning percentage of .646 with the Devils. He was fired and went on to win a Stanley Cup and Jack Adams with the Bruins. Long time Devils fans have been conditioned to expect only the highest standards from our General Manager. So why does a HC with 100 wins in 212 games (with New Jersey) get an opportunity to coach a 4th season with the team?? :noclue:  DeBoer's is under .500 with the Devils.. just as he was the 3 years with the Panthers. He's heading into his 7th season as an NHL Head Coach, and he's made the playoffs.... once! He's been fairly criticized for not properly cultivating younger prospects.. the SAME criticism he received in Florida! For one reason or another (Oates, Stevens, Shaw, Robinson, etc.) he can't seem to maintain his Assistants.

 

..the only thing I continue to hear among his supporters is: "uh, but wait.. he took us on a SCF run in 2012" :glare:

Is that REALLY enough to continue to turn a blind eye to everything else?? I'm not taking anything away from that season, but it was ONE SEASON sandwiched in what has been a pretty average coaching career. How long can he milk that? How many years does he get in NJ? 5 seasons? 6 seasons?

to be fair, he did have bad luck this season with all the shootout losses. im not saying i like pd, but its something to consider

400 yrds of offense.. holding Oakland to only 150 yrds (25 rushing) and we were FAR from playing our best football. The Jets were flagged 100x.. literally dropped 4 interceptions.. and I didn't particularly like the play calling of MM's either. He got too cute on a few different spots when he should have played it safe. Notwithstanding, we dominated this game. The scoreboard made it look close.. but the fact is, this game should've ended 33-7. I didn't like the fact that Colon was flagged 3 times, or the 4 plays that Marty chose for Vick.. but meh, I'll take whatever victory I can get at this point.

A few other observations from the game..

 

 • CJ2K: 100 total yrds (rushing & receiving) and he looks like he's out to prove something. Let's see where this season takes him.

 • AA’s tackling. I'm not going to throw a party over Allens performance against Oakland, however.. the guy can tackle.

 • JETlife: The Jets have now won 8 of their last 10 home games. I especially liked the all white look, and the white-out from the fans.

 • Offensive Line. Geno had all day to make his throws. They held their own against a quality front-seven. Good sign.

 • Jeremy Kerley. He had only 5 receptions yesterday, but they were all on 2nd or 3rd, for 1st downs. Want to know why the running game was so damn good? Go back and rewatch the game. Kerley can block as good as anyone in the league. He's the most timely dependable player this team has had since Cotchery. The amount of poise he brings to each game is aw-inspiring as a fan. He never takes a play off.. ever. Since last season, the Jets are 9-5 with Kerley in the lineup, and it's no wonder as to why.

 

Looking ahead. House Money here folks! The Jets are playing with house money for Week 2. We're fighting a pissed off Packers team.. in Green Bay.. with 2 extra days rest\prep.. and an angry Rodgers coming off a week where he threw for only 180 yrds in Seattle. We are not supposed to win this game. The pressure is entirely on Green Bay to not fall 0-2 to start their season, in front of the Lambeau faithful. It's a win-win for the Jets. If we lose, no big deal. We're exactly where we thought we'd be @ 1-1, with ¾ of the following games on home-field. If we somehow.. by some miracle, sneak out of Green Bay with a ‘W, then we're 2-0 with two back-to-back home games against Detroit & Chicago on tap.

Last month I said anywhere from 9 to 10 wins probably guarantees Rex a return ticket to come back in 2015. After yesterday's victory, the Jets now need to go 8-7 the rest of the way to accomplish that.. but they also need to show they can stand up to elite quarterbacks. They were able to do that in 2013, beating players like Brady, Ryan, Brees, etc. Next Sunday will be a great opportunity for Gang Green to show they won't lay down for Rodgers.. win or lose.

 

200 rushing yards 7. 200!! Makes it very easy for a QB when your team can dominate the ground attack like that. How often is that going to happen for the Jets this season? I said this last year, and I hope I don't have to say it again in 2014: "The Jets win IN SPITE of Geno, and lose BECAUSE of him." He needs to be more responsible with the ball. You can get away with it against the Raiders. You won't be able to get away with it against teams like Denver & New England.

i dont no wat by "some miracle" you beat gb means. the packers are beatable. its not like ur playing against the 85 bears
