To be fair, Sanchez played pretty well that game. The INT wasn't on him. The lack of touchdowns is more of a "team" problem. Not a Sanchez problem.

Hopefully, if the right tackle situation works out better with Howard (looked decent last night), they can open up the offense a bit more, instead of having to leave in extra blockers all the time.

One of this OL guys(Slauson, I think) picked up an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, and Sanchez hammered him after the game for it.

Nice to see how much unity the Jets have. I'm guessing they're gonna be near the league record for fewest points this season.

That quote is wrong, which is completely shocking, since it's from the NY Post.

It was even mentioned on TV last night multiple times that the 2003 KC Chiefs under Vermeil were the last to do it, and they went on to lead the league in scoring that year.

I have lived within 20 miles of Giant Stadium (it will be a cold day in hell before I call it Met Life Stadium) my entire life. This unfortunately meant that ever August for the past 30 years I have had to listen to all my friends who are Jets fan talk about going to the Super Bowl. When confronted with the fact that predicting a Super Bowl run in August is insane the response was always "This year is different, we have Sanchez/Farve/Rex Ryan/Revis/Tebow/etc and we'll going all the way!" And every year they would implode usually by end of October.

Today I woke up and say the following quote on Facebook, "This is going to be a long miserable season."

Now I can't really rejoice in a team's bad performance (Unless that team is the Patriots, I am a Giants fan after all) but it was so nice to finally see a dose of reality.

Chaz Schilens is nothing but rust. While very talented when he makes it on the field, he's apparently made of matchsticks and Elmer's glue and can't make a three game stretch without missing time. Prepare for a revolving door in the slot this year, Jets fans.

A good part of the reason I love every new NFL season is to listen to Jets fans spout off that "this is the year!" and season in, season out, watch the whole thing crumble like Thiesmann's lower leg.

Said it before, say it again- the Jets will NEVER win anything meaningful- does not matter one iota who the QB is, who the coach is- The entire organization is snakebitten and amateurish, from top to bottom. I'd bet that even the janitors who work for the Jets suck.

I guess I can see the argument for Buffalo being a bigger threat, in that horribly shiatty > all-world shiatty. The Jets may well wind up last in the division. The Dolphins and Bills can at least kick field goals and occasionally stumble into touchdowns every few weeks. The Jets can't. Their OL is a trainwreck, RBs and WRs are terrible, and Sanchez is throwing the ball. And their defense is going to be subpar as well. It's like somebody took the 2011 Pats' defense and matched it up with the 2010 Fins' offense.

It still baffles me that the Jets picked up Sparano to be their OC. "Sure, we have no OL, and our running back might be good enough to make the practice squad of half the teams in the league, but GROUND AND POUND, BABY!"

There is no threat to the Pats in the division. The Jets, Fins and Bills are all going to be garbage this year. But at least the Fins and Bills have the excuse of ongoing rebuilding.

There's still one guy like that, he's just not here yet. I don't know about Tebow - I don't doubt he's been working his ass off but from what I've seen this preseason his technique actually appears to have gotten worse.

That's right the 3rd string QB Greg McElroy. Greg will get his chance next game. He will score a TD! Why cause Broadway Joe say so! Tebow is there to put butts in seats, sell jerseys, and run the wild-kat.
 
2012-08-27 01:09:33 PM
Watching that game last night was painful, because you see Tebow in the 2-minute drill and you can just feel the announcers' pants tightening as they breathlessly narrate him hilariously blowing pass after pass and getting his awful "attempts" batted away by guys who will be bagging groceries in 2 weeks.

I'm just hoping Sparano continues the Jets tradition and runs the ball 50 times against the best run defenses in the league, and has Sanchez throw 50 times against the leagues best secondaries.

I had fun with the Tebow thing last year & really gave the guy a chance, but man does he suck. You can't even tell if he threw it away or just missed that bad. Only 'big name' QB I've seen miss as bad as Tebow was Jamarcus Russell.

CHFF had the best tweet last week. (forgot the exact stats)
Tebow: 9 of 22, 90 yards, 4.3 YPA, 0 TD, 2 INT, 36 Passer rating. You get a 39 passer rating for going 0 for 22.

I was wondering if there were any other Mcelroy fans out there. The guy was awesome in college, beat Tebow a few times, did pretty good last preseason until a really badly timed injury and hes being treated like an afterthought. I'd wager he'll score a few TDs once he gets his chance.

I'm fine with Tebow playing in the second half, just like any other backup. I was just irritated by the announcers. Especially after they couldn't even make it one full drive into Broncos/49ers before talking about Tebow.

They also had a graphic and discussed Strasburg in the 3rd quarter. Not joking.

As a Bengals fan I whole-heartedly agree with this. Jets fans are so annoying because they refuse to admit this. At least Bengals fans know we don't have a serious chance until Mike Brown dies and the organization changes.
Cincinnati, Jets, Oakland and a few others are just behind as an organizations. The Patriots, Saints, Falcons have all been purchased or seriously reorganized in the last 15 years.

Cincinnati is at least trying, but they still have the smallest talent evaluation staff in the league.

They have their problems but this sounds weird to me for a team that doesn't have a top tier qb yet made the afc chamionship game in 2009 and 2010. They're in the press a lot for the wrong reasons - partly because of personnel and partly because they're in the big apple... but that's hardly the result I'd expect from an amateurish organization.

Odd, most Jets fans I know are of the same mind set as me. We mostly start the season pessimistic, then we make predictions about when they melt down. Those two years where they made the AFC championship were aberrations. I'm looking at starting the year with a thud, then imploding over the next 5 games, then finishing the year with 2 or 3 wins. If they manage to even keep pace with the Pats in either of their two games this year I'll be surprised.

I guess my low expectations all started with being a Mets fan first though. They win one to get you hooked, then they just break your heart for the rest of time.

(full disclosure - Jets fan)

No TDs scored...

With Wayne Hunter starting 2 games, and letting the Panthers sack Tebow just as easily

With Holmes dropping passes that hit him in the chest, and running right through the end zone without even looking back on other plays (after the turnover near the end of the first half)

With Tim Tebow missing a wide open receiver at the pylon, throwing 5 yards short.

I want to believe them a little, but the final score Game 1 had better be a 3 or 4 TD win.

They're not snakebitten. They're poorly run by an owner who cares more about competing with the Giants for August ticket sales then building a good football team. Then changes directions every 4 years when things don't work out. Snakebitten implies bad luck.

If/when the Rex/Sanchez/Tebow show goes off the rails this year, the Jets will probably fire Rex, bring in a new coach, then go through three years of rebuilding before firing the new coach and rebuilding again.
