    You can pick several moments in the 2011 season that predate the Cruz catch and point to the downfall. The Ravens game is one. The week before the Christmas debacle in Philadelphia is another.

    I know this was last year, but when you see cowardly acts such as this you can not expect that guy to lead and play the most important position on the field. Should have been a red flag.

    Beating the Chiefs in overtime the last game of the season which netted us the 6th pick and Gholston.. otherwise we would have had Matt Ryan or McFadden.

    I picked Hill's dropped pass in NE that cost us the game. We would have believed we were better than we were and perhaps made the playoffs.

    I disagree. Had Favre NOT gotten hurt when the Jets were 8-3, they would've made some noise in the playoffs and PERHAPS Mangini would've remained as Jets head coach longer.....

    Of course back then, people here forget that they are the same people who wanted him(Mangini) gone regardless.....I guess absence does make the heart grow fonder(or whatever the fuk that old 'saying' is).

    The single move that started the downfall of the Jets

    During the job interview, they failed to question Wrecks about what he would do about offense. The second was the failure to question his references on the Ravens about why he did not get the HC job. In hiring anyone you check references before you hire.

    Very hard to not agree with this r at a minimum see it as the beginning of a pattern.

    ^ Wasn't too hard to disagree either, Mardukis.



    The owner tried going for a quick fix which ultimately blew up in his face BUT it was paying off for awhile until Favre got hurt.

    Here's the honest answer: Rex Ryan's big mouth.

    November 13, 2011 was the day that Rex Ryan ended. Patriots 37 Jets 16.

    Rex put all his eggs in that basket. That was the day that we were going to surpass the Patriots and put them in our rearview mirror. But Bill Belichick thought otherwise. The team never believed in Rex Ryan again after that day. The fans thought that after the playoff pounding we'd overtake New England and instead were handed a humiliating and thorough defeat.

    Going into that game, we were on an 18-9 run with 5 victories against elite teams.

    Since that game, the New York Jets are 9-15 with a 1-11 record against teams that end the year with a winning record.

    A complete and utter reversal of fortune. That's what happens when your head coach stands up and can't back it up. Players stop believing. Then they start losing.

    The Problem is the drafting strategy

    The NYJets went out an hired a defensive minded HC who prefers to run the ball play great defense which in itself is a sound strategy. In the initial stages of the program, the running game works to perfection due to the scheme and the power provided from the Right Side of the OL behind Damien Woody, Brandon Moore and Nick Mangold. The problem occurs when two of those OL got old and needed to be replaced. Combined that with an OLT who can't run block, a starting TE who's even worst and the lost of the RBs who powered the scheme and you have a problem.

    Throw in a mistake prone QB who the HC will not allow his OC to develop through mistakes and the end result is what u have today. The Jets run a multiple formation defense base out of a 34 scheme , yet have no OLBers who can rush the passer. Instead this team drafts DLmen in the early rounds. The Jets run a ground and pound offense yet have no feature RB,no Blocking TE and a bunch of OLmen who specialize in nothing in perticular.

    The problem is this team has no direction and that is why Mike Tannenbaum is history and the Jets are today searching for direction. It has nothing to do with Favre or Holmes or Sanchez or any of the players on the team. The problem is the draft and free agent strategy.

    The Pittsburg Steelers run a 34 defense, and all they do is draft players that fit their scheme. If u are going to run a 34 defense, you don't draft Vilma because he's the BAP.

    The last time this Jet franchise had direction was under Herman Edwards and Terry Bradway. The problem was the QB just couldn't stay healthy and was limited in what he could do due to his arm strength. Maybe Just Maybe, under the New GM we can get back to Having A Plan.
