    We can exploit it by rolling extra coverage to welker/edelman/lloyd.

    In 2010 when the defense played so well, hernandez/gronk werent really the players they are today. So it will drastically change what we need to account for on defense.

    Personally what I hope we do is have a safety (not eric smith) on hernandez 1-1. I will take our chances him beating us in man coverage as he isnt 100% healthy. Cro can also be in single coverage on lloyd and we can double/roll coverage on top of welker/edelman more to stop YAC then to limit their catches, they are gonna get their catches.

    In order for us to get a win, lankster really needs to have a good game as does wilson.

    Why are you saying that Hernandez is not completely healthy? he did participate in every practice last week.

    And we need to stop the run.

    Gronk will play with his arm in a cast catching balls with one hand. Guido has spoken.

    Simply because he didnt play sunday which I think is very reasonable. Are you saying he was a healthy scratch?

    He was held out because they didnt want him to aggrivate it with a short week to recover. That means he isnt 100%, thats all Im saying and that is completely reasonable

    I don't think you will get the opportunity to do so, Unless the jets do a complete 180 for the season. Gronk won't play until the last two games against the Fla teams and most likely just limited against the fins.

    Don't feel bad for Gronk. He has a month off where he can bang some porn stars, party and relax. Kid got paid. He'll be alright.

    I certainly was not happy that the guy got a possible career ending injury. Gronk's injury is just a break and not career impacting. go ahead- jets fans can dance a jig about the injury.

    It is a team game, If the pats dont win, it will hurt thier chances at a bye, but they will still win the division.
    Forcing the Pats to have to play an extra game instead of getting a bye is good for me.
    I love the Jets & hate the Pats so every year that they can't win a Superbowl, & Brady gets 1 year older is something to root for.
    The Pats are so roundly despised outside of New England that even an unlovable clusterf*ck like the Jets will be the countries pseudo team thanksgiving night.
    Football fans love the underdog when they have no horse in the race.

    No, but he did participate in every practice. This is the 11th game of the season
    and the teams are playing with 3 days rest. I think hernades will be closer to 100% than most of the players taking the field that day.

    I'm sure they feel very bad that Holmes, Revis, and Ellis are hurt, and Pouha has been hurt all year. He got a broken forearm while trying to humiliate another team. Not a life changing injury. Sorry if I don't shed a tear for them. I'm not going to gloat either, but to be upset is asking a little too much.

    No one feels sorry for the Jets when we lose without our best players. I even forgot about Pouha. He made a lot of plays for us last year!

    i think most patriot fans that like to tweak the fans here wanted to see holmes play and have a repeat of last year. and with the struggles that Sanchez has had to this point and the locker room media issues, he most likely would have went off. Your of the impression that holmes would have turned the page during the season and i think it just would have brought more distractions.

    The pats were not trying to humiliate them. They were not running reverses, or targeting guys deep in the 4th quarter. I think in the 4th quarter they passed twice on first down and one of them was to Vereen in the backfield..

    No. That would be poor sportsmanship, beating the Jets with one hand tied behind his back.


    Personally, I'm hoping nothing happens to Rex, Sparano, or Sanchez that keeps them out of Thursdays game. Any one of them out would only improve the Jets chances of winning greatly.
