    First of all, the "W" should tell you who I mean, as well as the context of the comment.

    Second, there is a sarcasm detection course taught at the local adult learning center. I'll PM you the schedule.

    Thank you for the clarification and hope the schedule is flexible.

    I love Jets fans, first you complain that Hunter is still the starting RT, he's now been replaced, now he's a scapegoat..

    It doesn't matter what the team does there's always going to be somebody to ***** about it!

    Scapegoating usually starts with the players - they all suck because the last Head Coach knew nothing / ran the wrong system. Once they get replaced and are the "hand picked guys" of the current Head Coach, it's the O / D co-ordinators fault for not having the right schemes. So you change co-ordinators. Then it's the Head Coach's fault, so he gets blamed and canned ... and you're back to the players again because the old Head Coach knew nothing.

    After this goes on a bit, it's then the GM and the owner who get the blame for mismanaging the cap / not knowing how to run a team.

    Since Jet fans demand everything immediately - we get through the whole cycle a lot faster than other teams do.

    they arleady canned the OC. if the jets stink and the offense doesn't improve, you can't just get rid of rex. must get rid of sanchez too, but that means you're in full rebuilding mode. does that mean tanny goes too - maybe.

    I think it would start with Tanny and Rex, then the new regime would start to bring in their own players. No point letting your GM cut guys if you're going to can him; let the new guy wield the axe.

    If Sanchez plays at the same level he did last year, he's the next one up.

    If he improves his completion % and ypa, and the team still can't score, then it's going to be the offensive line for not protecting him or being able to get the running game going, or Greene for not being able to capitalize on the holes they do open.

    If the whole thing blows up: the offense can't score and the defense underperforms, then people are going to skip right over the players and Rex and Tanny are going to take the heat.

    A) Sanchez
    B) Rex
    c) Tanny
    D) Fill in the blank

    You know our Wide receiver core is less than mediocre...it makes me miss Justin McCareins...
    Last I looked our record was 0-0, blame for what?
