If we lose to Buffalo we'll finish dead last and get Kansas City and Jacksonville next season instead of Oakland and Tennessee. If we win and Miami loses to New England, we're back in second with San Diego and Indianapolis.
Our schedule next season will be difficult enough with the AFC North and NFC South.
I hope Greg gets more time this week and plays well, but other than that I wouldn't mind a loss at all.
There are eight teams with either a 5-10 or 6-9 record. The Bills (5-10 and slotted with pick six) and Jets (6-9, slotted with pick 12) could almost flip draft positions depending on the outcome. http://www.sbnation.com/nfl-mock-dra...fl-draft-order
I don't think we have to worry about whether or not the Jets will "mail it in" vs Buffalo. Two of our three QBs don't want to be here anymore. The defensive coordinator doesn't want to be here anymore. Basically, it's over, Johnny. We are losing this game no matter what we wish for.
I heard Fireman ed is starting
I'm not sure it will matter if the Jets mail it in or not. We won't win no matter what level of effort is given, the team is just bad this year and will probably close the season with another embarrassing loss
No they should not tank the game.
A couple of spots higher in the draft order is less important than the opportunity to evaluate players under real NFL competition.
Evaluate everything including the coaching and HC
Tennessee hosts Jacksonville and Chargers host Raiders.
With a Jets loss, the Jets would be 6-10 and should be picking no worse than 10th. We'll have to see how the tiebreakers play out.
Can anyone confirm that the Jets would finish last if they lose to buffalo?
They don't have to mail anything in. They will lose without trying to lose.
Is there a big dropoff in talent from 7th to about 12th in the coming draft to make it worthwhile anyway?
With our talent level we don't have to try to mail it in, that will come naturally.
Give Tebow his start, he has done everything asked of him and deserves a chance
if he looks good and wins, Jets increase his trade value
if he looks bad, management looks good and Jets get a better draft pick
10 more sacks will not help evaluate McElroy
No, Rex should try to keep the game close because an embarrassing loss might cost him his job.
Ending the season with 3 embarrassing losses in a row would piss Woody off. If the Jets lose badly to the Bills, Rex Ryan might get fired on Monday.
I mailed it in as a fan weeks ago. The team followed suit.
We will loae to buffalo on sunday and that is a good thing my friends.
