    if you think this sucks, I can hardly wait till we play BeliSH*t on 4 days rest ... I'm sure some unnamed source will decide to start Tebow on Turkey day

    FACT: The Jets have a weak remaining schedule, including today's game at St. Louis. If Rex gets his team back to .500 all of a sudden he's a good headcoach again and Sparano is a good OC. Still 43% of the season left to play. The Jets can still right this thing regardless of what the sportstalk fools say.
    Can it be done with 2 phases working?

    Here's you opponents over the next three games...

    Rams, Pats, Cards.



    The Rams are beatable, the Pats only beat us by 3 points up at Gillette and now have to play us at Metlife, and the Cards are a mess of a team right now. Absolutely the Jets could rip off 3 straight here and then we're 6-6 with four games left to play.

    So then D, and ST will do their job (hopefully ST will get out of it's funk) and they will also score fore O?

    The Rams have a weak O-line. If the D could have Wilson running for his life last week they can certainly put Bradford on his back this week. Our special teams has made some mistakes, but this isn't normal for a Westhoff coached squad, this will work itself out. On offense they have to stop pulling Sanchez and putting Tebow in. Instead they need to have them both on the field at the same time and keep it that way. Sanchez at QB and Tebow at RB or TE, where Sanchez can either hand off to him or lateral to him and let him do the read-option from there. Pulling Sanchez only disrupts the flow of the offense. Hopefully they've learned this by now.

    This is football, score points, no story necessary.

    When Billy and Tommy dream of how to get revenge on the team they hate the most it would set up like Thanksgiving:

    Tebow controversy, empty stadium, Hernandez resting for a few weeks, chance to get Rex fired after national blow out

    I agree the Rams are beatable so will focus on that today

    Yes this is a critical game today. This is the season right here. The Jets have a tremendous amount of heat on them which Jeff Fisher doesn't have right now. This is a bad game for the Rams to draw a this time because the Jets must win here and will fight like it's the Superbowl to do so.

    That one was on the players ...... Wilson had a pick that could possibility went back for 6 early.....Holmes tripped on first drive when could of had 6.....muffed punts....missed opportunities when in position to make plays killed us.

    That was a tough one to swallow.

    The Rams tied a SF team that beat us down.
    I'm sure the Rats are quaking in fear about having to "try" and deal with playing at Metlifeless.
    And you can switch "jets" for "Cards" and be just as accurate.

    Time to root for losing out so we can draft Geno or Landry and so that the FO is purged and the team sold

    It's all about the tailgate dudes! Besides, this is the way 20 teams a year experience it, no need for suicide.

    When you are talking about a game against the Rams as critical, the season is over.

    Yeah it stinks. Im watching the game today hoping i see something surprising.
    Wed have to go on a sick winning streak with this personnel and coaching which both leave a bit to be desired.

    This is coming from the ultimate optimist.

    At least ND is having a great year.
    They should kick butt next week @ USC and be 12-0 and ranked #1 in the nation.

    Im not surprised with this years results. Last off season, we were all aware of the holes that needed to be filled. Tanny failed to properly fill the holes and add decent depth. The only major acquisition was a back up QB.

    The 2012 Jets, simply are not a talented team.

    To get better, we need changes at GM & Scouting. Rex needs better players to coach.
