I wonder if the message board police will sound off on this.
GFY you deplorable fantasy nerd, to you football is measured with fantasy stats, and it's a flawed mindset.
The reality is for 2013 Rex and Sanchez are coming back either way. The fact that we host the Super Bowl already curses us for next year.
I can't stand Sanchez and would rather have McElroy in but I don't think winning these games will set us back for the next 2-3 years. Reality is he will be back next year and so will McElroy.
In the NFL whenever you have a chance to win you do it. Drafting high won't fix our problems and when was the last time we drafted well with a pick in the top 10 anyways? (Sanchez, Gholston, Kyle Brady, Blair Thomas) were are all top 10 picks. Only good one was Keyshawn and he was a loud mouth.
IF (and that's a big if) we can win out MAYBE it gives us a reason to at least attract some decent free agents who can contribute. Our coach and QB are inept buffoons but at least having a coach and QB who made the playoffs 3 out of 4 years and stink may sound attractive.
We may get on the team for 6 days a week, but come kickoff we're all rooting for the team, hoping they prove us wrong and show us something, but they continue to fall short and a 9-7 Wild Card RAPE against a superior team is going to make me feel worse and the TEAM WORSE for 2013.
For the poster before that said Schottenheimer was fired after a 14-2 season in San Diego, I guess you don't pay too much attention to the Jets organization. When this team makes the playoffs, zero changes are made. Zero. They are complacent to a TEE.
It's okay if Rex and *gulp* Bumchez are brought back, so long as Bumchez is "Matt Flynn'd" behind a better Quarterback and the GM is changed, with Tannenbaum being demoted or fired, whichever he and Woody work out. He'll never get another GM job again, so it would be better if he were demoted back to being a capologist.
Can't blame 'em though because no Colts fan cares about last season this season.
We all know this season feels like a waste of time, but until they are officially eliminated from playoff contention - there is not a single person or player in the whole organization that is goijg to intentionally tank games so the fans will be happier that they get a higher draft pick.
