So I shouldn't bet the house on the Jets winning the AFC?

 

Honestly though the league would love to have a NY team sneak into the playoffs. ;) Especially being where the SB is......

Jets are lucky with the penaltys at the end of every game...TB and now NE...lol

Anyways, the Jets Defense today played well, nothing but respect for that defense.

 

Gronk looked good for his first game.

I think we should have played Ridley more.

Yes, Gronk looked really good. Nice to see. Fortunate that Bills beat Miami too which leaves Pats alone in first place with Miami up next at the Razor. I think this is about as much as a must win that the Pats have had all season....

Give the Jets credit. They may, at times, get headlines for all the wrong reasons, but that defensive front is for real, and they can ball. Smith looked good for most of the day and his receivers got open for him.

 

The Patriots never should have put themselves in position to lose the way they did. They had chances at the end to win it in regulation, and they got the ball first for OT. As it's been all year with this team, they'll be up-and-down in the coming weeks, hoping to have it all come together at the right time. 

 

On to the next one...

Not to beat down the Pats or anything, but the Jets were close to beating the Pats in that first game too, if not for that Geno melt down in the 4th quarter.  They have a great defense, and if Geno can get some more skill players to work with they will be a force in the coming years.

For sure, the first game was a nail-biter-and-a-half. The Jets always play the Patriots tough but yeah, if they can build around what they have, they'll be a very, very good team in the near future.

Yeah...the Jets seem to make the Pats' games their Superbowl every year.  Pats will be fine though, with Gronk looking studly again.

Yep. Wilkerson, Richardson, Coples and others are all solid players.

I look at how the season is progressing and losing this game doesn't bother me too much. When the Patriots play their best football in October, I usually end up getting disappointed in January.  ;)

Somebody tell folks on TV that a game winning drive is NOT,..where your kicker misses a long field goal...gets a second chance because of low-rent refs and makes it..

..don't you dare say that was another GWD for Geno-hype...

Geno is unlikely to be a force in the years to come under any circumstances...

he's Caleb Hanie with money

I don't know. I like Smith. I think he has a strong arm, good pocket presence and seems to play well in the big moments. This is his first year and he is doing some really nice things along with the typical rookie mistakes. I really do not like Rex Ryan at all but he knows how to put together a great defense every year and especially this year with the loss of Revis. If he has even a decent QB then his team will compete. I think they will win 8 games this year but next year they will be even more dangerous assuming they put some real talent around Smith at the receiver/TE positions. Right now I think Rex keeps his job which I didn't think had a chance at happening but with that win over the Pats he may have saved his job.

    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....  
    • I missed the first couple innings, was keeping track on phone, didn’t realize things got chippy with the benches clearing after the Contreras HR! Seems the Cubs were playing with a little extra edge tonight, I love it!!! 
    • and then NE goes into KC and throws for 350 and Sony runs for 100+ on them. our O, and O game plan just sucked.   i get KC was good, but our O just sucked.
