    So you've basically just admitted that the Pats offense did not win this game...


    Thank you for making my point. If those random turnovers don't happen we have a much much different game on our hands, a game more like the one at Gillette than the cartoon show last thursday night. I'm glad we agree on this.

    Marty is 69 years old, that is why he does ot have a gig. The jets would have died to have made the playoffs 13 times in 26 years and have had 12 straight winning seasons. Your still talking about a playoff game from two years ago, and what did the jets do, but lose in the playoffs in back to back years.

You got handed all those points off random turnovers that were not the fault of anyone, except maybe the redzone INT by Sanchez the rest were RANDOM... you did not cause them, THEY WERE A GIFT!
    Of course the pats are not 35 points better than the jets, I would say 8 points.

    Who said the Pats offense won the game? That wasn't the question. It was whether the Pats outplayed the Jets. The Pats outplayed the Jets in every aspect of the game.

    The Pats offense still put up 475 yards and 35 points if you take away the defensive and special teams TDs which would still have won the game by 16 point if all the scoring was the same.

    You realize that the Patriots are #1 at causing "random turnovers" right? They have almost double the forced fumbles of the next leading team Chicago. In combined ints and fumbles, Chicago pales to NE but NE's pass defense is so bad, everyone talks about Chicago's turnovers and ignores the fact that NE is ahead of them.

    Is this a goof or are you that stubborn? I was mirroring what a previous poster said regarding turnovers being part of the game, no matter that you choose to ignore it. Face it, we were beaten in all three phases of the game (royalty paid to Eric Mangini). Pats' offense smoked our D.

    Marty Schottenheimer hasn't coached in the NFL since 2006. That means he hasn't been able to get another job in the NFL since he was 63 years old.


    Tom Coughlin is 66 years old and doesn't have anywhere near the regular season winning record of Marty Schottenheimer...

    Sure they "smoked our D" for 11% less completions than Mark Sanchez had and 33 more rushing yards than we had and less time of possession than we had...


    Are you sure YOU haven't been "smoking" something?

    Have a great Sunday. Make sure you try some of the soups on the buffet table. Chef found some oxtails, and the stock is divine.

    Oh lord.

    How many interceptions did Brady throw?

    How many times did Brady fumble for Jets TDs?

    If you want to be happy with Sanchez' garbage time numbers when the game already decided feel free.

    Are you DWC?

    Some might. People who get excited about a winning/.500 record or 1 and out playoff birth (low expectations) might.

    However, people who think long term people who expect more then just beating bad teams and token playoff appearances won't.

    I mean really how can you get excited about being in the upper echelon of bad teams.

    Well how many times was Brady sacked? How much pressure was Brady under to make something happen? How many times did Brady trail in the game forcing him to take chances with his passes?

    Anyone who thinks this game didn't hinge on turnovers didn't watch that cartoon show the other night.

    Taking a look at the thursday night game against the Patriots, you do realize that Tom Brady threw for only 20 more yards than Mark Sanchez and completed 11% less of his passes than the Jets quarterback did? You realize that right? You also realize that Shonn Greene ran for 5.1 yards per carry against your top rated run defense didn't you? Hopefully you also realize that the majority of the TD's Brady threw came off of turnovers right? The fact is, Tom Brady did not outplay Mark Sanchez in that game. Had Sanchez been handed the same lucky breaks that Brady was handed he would have racked up 3 TD's in the game too.



    The New England Patriots didn't necessarily out play the Jets on thursday night so much as the Jets turned the ball over on fumbles and a redzone INT and handed them the blowout win that they went home with. Eliminate the turnovers and this is a very much different game... Try not to take too much away from that win because your team really is more like the one who won by 3 points at Gillette and not the one who won by 35 on thursday.
    The D did give up 28 points to the NE offense that spent most of the night on cruise control. We got killed and they did not even have to try hard. Cantchez looked worse then he ever has. The kid is done here in Ny. Trade him to Az they seem to collect average underachieving Qb's.

    Those things just "happen" out of the blue?

    I am convinced Philly Statz is back.

    Yeah, and if I won the lotto I would would be rich. But the Jets had those turnovers and I haven't won the lotto.

    Without those turnovers things would have been different but not necessarily better.

    Are you sure YOU haven't been "smoking" something?

    NE held the ball for a total of 2 minute 10 seconds in the second quarter. That resulted in 35 points. The Jets wouldn't let Brady on the field but when he did the Pats were 11-15 in 3rd down conversions.... The Jets were 3 - 10. You have to dig deeper than completions and rushing yards.

    Has anyone ever scored 35 points with 2+ minutes of possession?

    You do realize the Pats were up 14-0 before any of the INTs that you can argue were "flukey". Spin the Gregory INT any way you want, but it was a great defensive play. That was an example of the Pats outplaying the Jets, not some kind of a fluke.

    As the passing game in a blowout, most of those passing numbers are irrelevant. Brady got his three TDs when the game was in hand in the first half.

    Heading into the playoffs during their two Superbowl runs nobody would have said the New York Giants were one of the better teams heading into the playoffs. They just managed to get in with a 9-7 record and had to play all their games on the road. They looked very "one n' done" to just about anyone who followed them during the season.


    Again, once the playoffs start all bets are off... Just get there, and once you're there you're a playoff team with a shot at a ring just like everyone else.

    No kidding...and who made those turnovers? Sanchez. Now lets hear why they weren't his fault.

    I'm leaving this thread. I really don't want to pile onto Jets fans who are feeling this lose. I really don't. I apologize to those people. This guy is nuts and it's pointless to argue.
