Some people are just ....
Rather than just throwing an accusation out there how about some facts to back it up? Where are these imaginary "bogus usages" and how less relevant are they than the "bogus reviews" of the Jets organization so obviously posted by fans of another team with too much time on their hands?
And I'd put up money that you are not DWC. More likely, you are Eternal Champion. This is exactly the type of bogus thread he enjoyed to get a rise out of the local populace.
The facts stand for themselves. Mark Sanchez actually DID complete a higher percentage of his passes in the game than Tom Brady did, see the link below and check it out for yourself. Tom Brady actually DID only throw for 20 more yards than Sanchez, check the facts. The Patriots actually DID only run for 30 more yards in the game, click the link and read about it. Considering all of this, what else would you attribute to the Jets loss last thursday BUT the turnovers?
Here's the entire boxscore of the game... Click the link and check the facts for yourself and tell me which are "BOGUS", and when you can't at least admit that you're a fan of a rival team that's only here to rip on the Jets and upset their fans, then tell us about all the other personas you have on the board so we know who we're dealing with okay?
There were 4 Game-Turning plays vs the patriots.
1. Sanchez red zone INT
2. Vereen Screen pass TD
3. Sanchez fumble and subsequent return for TD
4. McKnight Fumble
If you notice, 2 of the 3 negative plays for the Jets were DIRECTLY sanchez's fault, while Tom Brady was part of 1 positive play for the pats.
Stats dont tell the whole story. One QB threw 3 tds and led his team to an easy, 49-19 win while committing 0 turnovers. The other did the exact same thing he has done all year....turn the ball over in the redzone and then fumbled away the game. There really isnt much else to say about this.
Uh... the accusation was made that the stats I posted were "Bogus stats" so I provided a boxscore link to the game so you could check them for yourself. My contention was that the turnovers made all the difference in the game because the Patriots had no dominant edge in any other aspect of the game.
When you beat another team by 30 points the stats should at least support that win with some dominant edge statistics, but in this game there is no other dominant edge than the turnover differential (Jets had 5 fumbles and lost 4 of them). If you want to call that "homerism" or "bogus statistics" or "irrelevant facts" or whatever go ahead, but it demonstrates the true basis for you being here, which is to rip the team and upset the fanbase.
Don't tell me the stats don't support anything in the game, they support a whole lot, and they tell the whole story if you're rational about it.
If you want to sleep a little better after a 49-9 lose because Sanchez has a high completion rate, who am I to argue.
Rock on Philly.
PS: I am upsetting the fan base? You started this thread, read your fellow Jets fan's comment. They don't need me to get upset.
And there is no irony lost on the fact that the Jets lost the game by 30 points and turned the ball over 4 times in the game.
4 turnovers converted into 28 points by the Patriots.
The Patriots won by 30 points.
The point differential in this game without the turnovers was 2 POINTS! The Jets lost at Gillette by 3 POINTS! There is no significant difference between these two teams, they are very very closely matched regardless of what the score was. Hence the Jets were NOT OUTPLAYED, they simply lost the turnover battle. On the other hand the Packers were soundly OUTPLAYED by the Giants and we can infer that if they meet the Giants again in the playoffs they will LOSE. The Jets on the other hand could meet the Patriots in the playoffs and if they can control their turnovers COULD WIN!
Hey that's fine, you Pats fans wanna show up on the board and rip the Jets go ahead, but you won't be doing it without us ripping your team apart too, and the facts are the facts in this game and the last one between the two teams.
The point differential without the 4 Jets lost fumbles is only 2 POINTS.
You won the game before this at Gillette by only 3 POINTS.
You CAN be beaten by the Jets if the Jets can control their turnovers.
The truth hurts, and this certainly is the truth.
