Thank you and well said
Please explain why.
Please explain to me how Lombardi would do better with the QB we have been dealing with.
You keep ripping, you keep flaming....all you do is b1tch
Why, because he didn't give you enough headlines in his presser?Quote:
This Idzik hire reminds me of the Coslett/Steinberg hire. A sense of excitement for something new but when the curtain opened, we got nothing.
Maybe we have a guy who will keep it close to the vest
I agree with the original post 100%. Now the local media, they have an agenda and since they have blown their load on outlandish jets stories and behavior the last few years they have to invent things. My big problem is with the national media. A lot of these clowns know far less about the Jets, their moves, their motivations than the average fan on this forum or any other fan forum for that matter and yet they will spout off on some second hand news they have heard.
Disagree........Two Words: Walton Kotite
I think too many people think that I am referencing the losing or dissapointment attached to losing. It's about the false way that the team is covered and the general mockery of the franchise.
Some people are not effected by the fake stories and poor journalism but I am. John Idzik personally contacts Darrelle Revis and speaks with him.That story is swept under the rug. Idzik didn't even have a chance to evaluate the roster and 24 hours before he is introduced. Story is "leaked" out that the Jets are trading Revis and that he is "as good as gone".
Anyone playing the guessing game can put 2 and 2 together and report the possibility of Revis being traded and that they got it from an "inside source".
Rashard Mendenhall no shows his own team and doesn't show up at games.
Ben Roethlisberger accused of rape.
Jame Harrison becomes most fined player in league history for illegal hits.
Troy Polamalu admits he was rushed back from injury and gets hurt.
Keeping Leftwich in game vs Ravens after being injured early.lose game by 3.
Ben Roethlisberger accused of rape again.
Bruce Arians forced to retire and then replaced by Todd Haley.
Roethlisberger publically rips Steeler managament for dismissal of Arians.
Poor clock management/play calling leads to playoff eliminating Cincy loss.
Mike Wallace contract squabbles.
Roethlisberger openly questions coordinator's playcalling after Dallas loss.
Mendenhall claims US conspiracy and questions Bin Laden death.
Rainey gets arrested and cut but cut is reversed and against league rules.
Draft pick Teamu gets arrested, cut and then brought back to practice squad.
Tim Tebow throws for 300 yards against Pitt in poorly coached playoff loss.
Give me any team and I can come up with a list to make any team look bad.
After seeing a lot of the responses here, I should have re-worded the thread title to This is the worst time to be a Jets fan if you are following your team because of the negative and harsh treatment. It's a long title but i should have went with it.
I should have just skipped page 2 in this thread. A lot of the posters with the exception of a few are either off topic, off target or off base. What else is new.
Instead, you throw out your opinion that the "media is out to get the Jets" which is not a fact, just your perception.
What lives on Page 2 of this thread is the laundry list of things the Jets have done to themselves, things so bombastic and ridiculous that any agnostic reporter lacking every modicum of agenda could report on straight-up and appear to be "vindictive" when he's not.
Case in point Rex Ryan's back-to-back weeks where he took the team to a Leadership Conference followed by seeing a Sleep Specialist. Same for the Sanchez Wristbands, the Rob Ryan Dress-Up, and all the rest. Read the articles from those weeks, the media isn't being unfair, isn't making the Jets look like "clowns". The embarrassment, if that's how you feel, comes from Rex Ryan's actions, not from the media reporting on it.
Marshall McLuhan would refer to that as "the message is the message".
