Do we have a good shot at winning? Hell yeah!
Should you expect the team to show up and be competitive? Absolutely. Esp with the cast of characters they have who are injured.
Should we EXPECT victory? How could you when you don't even know which Geno Smith will show up to this game. Last game we had Brady dead but we couldn't get the go-ahead score.
Look at the talent on this team. I don't think it's fair to expect victory in any game this season. I do expect them to be competitive however.....
Rex is doing a great job with the hand he's been dealt with. 3-3 is not too shabby, especially with how Geno has been turning the ball over. BUT these next 3 games will show a lot about this team and Rex. I don't even expect to win (maybe Cinci) but hey show us something.
Rex backed the Holmes move and loved the guy, rex backed the use of draft picks. Rex loved Sanchez. All of these things are on Rex as the head coach. That is why he is a head coach. People need to stop treating him as a great D_coordinator and judging him only on that.
How has Tom Brady looked this year, playing wise and stats wise? Not hof material. He's looked like a decent controlled QB. The same things we are giving our team a pass over such as bad receivers are ignored with the pats. If we are going to use the superior QBing bit as an excuse we can excuse almost all loses this year.
Rex Ryan, under a new GM, with a rebuilding team has to coach better than average or what the league expects us to be (5 or 6 wins). Losing both div games to the Pats when they will never be worse off player wise or injury wise to me is telling. (As far as me saying 'This coach is a real potential super bowl winning coach'.)
Its a difference of opinion - I don't think being on either side makes you a moron, both sides have their advantages. A lot of coaches still like to play it safe, the second guessing for kicking a FG is a lot less than if you went for it and failed. I understand both sides, and can't really fault either as they both have their pors and cons.When your not that good in areas of your team, you have to take some chances, he's still coaching like he's got a complete team.
80% completion percentage given up in the last 2 games? Go for TDs moron.
Personally I wish coaches wouldn't play it so safe - especially rex, i think the pros outweigh the cons. 4th and G or whatever inside the 5 should be gone for every time, no matter what the clock says. If you miss, you have them so far backed up, plus with our D line, you might be getting 2 anyways, if not, likely you'll be in good field position to try again.
As soon as I saw we were 4th & 1, I was screaming to go for it!
In fact, I was hoping he was ready for the situation & already dialed something up, instead, all we got was total confusion, everyone looking around & a delay of game penalty.
Listen, if Rex can't get his guys up to win this Sunday, I'm done with this guy!
No Amendola, No Gronk, No Hernandez, no Vareen, no Wilfork, no Mayo, no Talib, no Welker
ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!
Rex has lost one veteran from his defense, Barnes.
All we have done in his tenure here is ADD TO THIS DEFENSE & pretty much ignored the offense, other than Hill in the 2nd round (which according to insiders, Rex didn't want to do, probably was a corner he wanted there).
So, SUPPOSEDLY Rex is a defensive genius savant, (the last 2 Qbs we played had an 80% completion rate), We are going against 2 rookies in Thompkins & Dobson, even Edeleman has been limited in practice, & they signed a concussion in waiting Collie.)
If Rex can't take this game at home when the Pats have NEVER BEEN RIPER, I'm sorry, when do you people think we will ever beat this team again?
After losing 5 staight to the Pats, Wilkerson has NEVER been on a Jet team that has beaten them, if he doesn't have this team, playing at home going 4 full quarters like their hair is on fire to put a beating on a team that came in here last year on Thanksgiving evening & put one of the worst, embarrassing defeats in the annals of NFL football that included the Buttfumble that had the NY Jets on the funny pages for 6 months, he's not a leader of men.
The Steelers don't have one guy on that D line that was there when they were kicking peoples azzes?
Give me a BREAK.
Rex was scared of ghosts from the past for god sakes. We have the FREAKING HIGHEST PAID CENTER in the league! I guess that was a mistake too!
As a fan of an opposing team in the AFCE, and as much of a defensive mind that he may have, I hope he stays your HC for a very long time. There's a reason that Baltimore wanted nothing to do with him as their HC.
That's nice. Could we beat them for once, though?
I remember our team playing the Chiefs in an early season, high scoring game in Foxborough. At the end of regulation the Chiefs scored a TD and had a choice of kicking the extra point to tie it or go for two and win it. I was in total fear that KC would gamble and go for two and the win. The way they were running through the Pats that day they had a decent shot at making it. Instead, they tied it, we won the toss and marched down the field for the win in OT.
