As I posted earlier...The J-e-t-s are n-u-t-s if they don't pursue Cassel. Granted he may take a step backward if the sour pussed penguin is still running the show but Cassel has definitively proven he can produce. He may not be able to carry a team singlehandedly but can you imagine the upisde if the Jets had a coach who actually possessed a clue?
we need a qb, i dont see any of our guys behind favre that i feel can be our qb for the future. cassle is a no brainer to chase after. we also need another shut down secondary player, and a wide receiver. but, most of all, we need a new head coach whose brain is bigger than an acorn..
[QUOTE=Ribtoe;2937982]Matt Cassell = Scott Mitchell & all the other QB's that step in after an injury and play well in a contract year and get a big free agent deal and never pan out. NO WAY should we sign him[/QUOTE]
Matt Cassel would be the Jets best QB since Joe Namath.

It's amazing how the homerism is clouding their objectivity. If Cassel played on any other team there'd be serious discussion on this forum about signing him. I still remember there were quite a few Jet fans hoping to land Matt Schaub from Atlanta who played a whooping two games as a starter before going to the Texans.
The Jets still have some holes to fill. We need another Lineman to take some pressure off Jenkins as you saw he wore down at seasons end. The Jets definitely need some secondary help, they were atrocious this year. Maybe a speedy linebacker that can go sideline to sideline.
On offense, if Bret retires that's a huge question mark with Clemens and Ratliff. I'm not even sure what I would do there. The Jets are in dire need of a big time WR playmaker. Coles is done in my eyes and seems uncommitted to the team now. The Jets can save a couple of million just from him also.
Last the Jets are desperate for a new head coach. Please Woody, get the right man for the job. You have to see that Mangini is not the guy and can't carry a team. A coach like Cowher can save a team.
Help us God, for we have a long, dark few years ahead of us.
