This is where your argument goes off the reservation.  Vick is NOT an accurate passer historically.  His career completion percentage is 56.2, which would be 32nd ranked if it was a team rank this season.

And I never mentioned the Buffalo game lol (after all, Vick didn't start, he was rushed in), the problem with that game was the four additional turnovers and the fact the offense did nothing in the second half.  They did actually have seventeen points at the half so they weren't piling up everything against a prevent, but by the same token Vick's passing numbers weren't great till the last drive either.

thats also somewhat missleading though, because a lot of the seasons where vicks completion percentages were poor came early on in his career. it seems as he matured he became a better passer

Since Geno got the hook, Vick is converting 3rd downs at a 44.2% rate (9/16 in Week 8, 4/12 in Week 9, and 6/15 in Week 10).  Jets were at 39.4% for the season with Geno taking most of the snaps, so yeah, it's been better with Vick, but a lot of that is based off Week 8.  In the last two weeks, the 3rd down conversion rate is 33% and 40%.  So it's really too early to say whether or not Vick is making that much of a difference yet, re:  the (though, again, he's clearly waaaaaaaay ahead of Geno...Vick can at least provide something resembling NFL-quality QB play at the position.  Geno no longer could.       

making a dif. to me is whether or not a team wouldve won the game with another qb. would the jets have won yesterday with geno? i cant really say.

 

i do agree that points scored isnt exactly the best barometer to judge how a qb is performing

We're 6-5-2. Not bad.

the 4game losing streak last month makes it look worse than it is. even if we spit those games, we'd be in good shape at this point

comments in this thread make it seem like you think Lou doesn't watch the games.  Give me a break.

no doubt. but ur still talking about a gm that is very sentimental and fond of players coaches that have had success here. i think lou is in debt to pdb for 2012, and i really cant see him firing him at all this season

Oates really wasn't that great for us guys, and he then went on to do worse with the Capitals, take a step back......

i dont thinkoates could do any worse at this point. if hes available i can see that making sense
