As much as I am glad to see the Jets fail miserably, I would not really blame the fumble on Smith. He was starting to pull back to throw the pass when he got axed hard just above the wrist. I defy any NFL quarterback to hold onto the ball when hit like that.
Sure, he could have gotten rid of the ball quicker, but it also wasn't like he danced around in the pocket for 6 seconds trying to decide who to throw the next interception too.

It's one of those times when what was a good defensive play counts as a negative to the wrong person...

The maddeningly inconsistent Jets (5-5) became the first team in NFL history to alternate wins and losses through its first 10 games.

The Jets I think could go the whole season that way:
Win @ Baltimore
Loss vs Miami
Win vs Oakland
Loss @ Carolina
Win vs. Cleveland
Loss @ Miami

If they do that, losing two to Miami would basically mean they wouldn't get the #6 seed, outside of Miami going 0-4 in their other games.

I don't see the JETS beating the Ravens either, but they won't lose two against Miami. At best, that series would be a split.

Eh, you're reaching. Probably lose to Ravens in Baltimore. Miami is a mess, so at least a split. Regardless, the Jets' quarterback has looked awful lately and that is the issue. But still, that's a pretty easy schedule.

The same Jets team that beat the Saints doesn't have a chance against the Ravens or Raiders?

Certainly might fall off the rails there.... but, the Jets have won games one's would think they  "shouldn't have" this year (NE, NO)... so, beating Baltimore and certainly Oakland isn't out of line.   The game they should lose with Carolina falls on a "losing" week.

Just saying, their schedule has games that believably play into doing a W-L-W-L-W-L the rest of the way... it isn't like they play Seattle or Denver on a week they'd need to Win.

Since we're biatching about FF in this thread...I started the Jets over the Giants defense accidentally yesterday. I knew I wanted the Giants at home against GB but forgot to switch before gametime. Cost me 16 pts.

Pretty much, the defense is really clicking now it seems, and Manuel seems to be gelling with the receivers. I am cautiously optimistic for next year.

I was talked out of starting the Bills D in favor of the Lions D yesterday like 15 minutes before the games started. I am losing by a little more than 30 and I still have 2 players left to play. And, you know what, I absolutely deserve to lose FF this year. This was just another in a long list of bad decisions I've made, but this is the only one I can say someone else directly influenced me into making. Goddammit so much.

You need to be great AND tiny.

If you're 6'5", nobody cares when a defender executes some sort of flying wrestling takedown.  But if you're small and feeble looking, and you're already crumpling so that your head is at like waist height, well, you're golden.

Certainly they could be 8-7 going into the last game with NE, and with the mish-mash of teams for the #6 seed, even 8-8 might get it, although, they'd want to win that last game with NE (who they seemingly play tough no matter what the records).   That being said, they are still the "current" Bills, and until they can show some consistency, they are also a team that those teams they are playing are looking at and going "that's a winnable game" (less the first 3, but, certainly Miami.... if Buffalo is 7-7 by then, the Miami game is probably a "stay alive" game at that point for both teams).   Buffalo will have shown some backbone if they can reel off 5 wins in a row... but I'm wouldn't bet on that in any stretch of the imagination.

Barring something really wacky like a 2nd tier, but still pretty good QB (Chad Henne?) being offered up for trade, Geno is their guy for at least one more season. He's shown flashes of something better.

Might as well brag about starting Bills D in both my fantasy teams. One game, I've already won. The other I'll need 8.17 points from Amendola, could happen.

I would imagine it's two, based on the person I was replying to.

I saw the game at a bar, without hearing the announcers.  Friends have told me everyone was on board for the flag.  Apparently it was less contact to the head (which is what I thought they called) and more finishing the tackle by slamming Brees down well after the ball was loose.  Which seems legit; I'd have to watch a replay.

But I do think smaller QBs get a little more protection.

I agree with pretty much everything. I doubt any team (besides the Jets) overlooks the Bills, this season has been packed with close games. The thing that makes me so excited for the future is that we finally seem to have a solid core of coaches, some big name players and a lot of youth.

I don't think that it's a solid 100%. Remember that because he fell so far Geno was had for a song. He has a 4-year $5mil contract,with $405K guaranteed this year, and $600K next year. He barely effects the cap and they could easily cut him...If they get rid of Cromartie ($14mil cap hit next season) and Sanchez ($13mil), they could afford a new QB. Meanwhile Sanchez can relax and laugh his way to the bank. 

Poor Jets fans.

I'm actually not a Niners fan, I just thought it was a BS call when watching that game. I understand you can't hit a QB in the head, and you can't go at his knees. But I'm going to complain when you get a flag for not hitting the QB soft enough.

DON'T do it!

I talked my wife into being a last second replacement when someone dropped out a few days before the draft.

She is an account and was just a casual hockey fan. She could have cared less if she started Rob or Scott Neidermeyer, just as long as the numbers made sense.

She destroyed the league. Of course we had to step it up next year but for the 5 years the league ran, she and I split all 5 (I was up 3-2).

What big-time free agent QB is going to be on the market next year? They're not cutting a guy a year after drafting him in the second round unless there's a felony involved or something. They still think of Geno as the QBOTF and will bring him back next year as the starting QB. The guy's a rookie; we've been spoiled in recent years by Luck, Griffin, Wilson and Newton and sometimes forget that struggling mightily is the norm for rookie QBs.

I considered quitting watching football after that call yesterday. The league is a shell of what it used to be. I understand player safety is important and all but that was absolutely shameful. I just turned the game off and played a computer game instead.

The key is to be a great NFL QB like Drew Brees so that officials will just throw a flag on the defender if you're hit and fumble the ball.

Otherwise known as "Roughing the Brady"

I considered quitting watching football after that call yesterday. The league is a shell of what it used to be. I understand player safety is important and all but that was absolutely shameful. I just turned the game off and played a computer game instead.


I agree that it was a crap rule that never should be removed. But it was a good call, by the rulebook

It's most reminiscent, to me, of the Suh penalty for throwing Jay Cutler across the field with a push.

Flag for hitting too hard.

Super Chronic: phimuskapsi: dletter: phimuskapsi: cameroncrazy1984: If the Bills can keep a healthy defense, they have a definite possibility to be a terror down the stretch. Especially considering who they play against.

Next 4 should be wins for us, if that happens, then the Bills are in the better position for the WC. I don't expect this to happen, Bills are just finally starting to gel, but next year....holy crap, look out.

Certainly they could be 8-7 going into the last game with NE, and with the mish-mash of teams for the #6 seed, even 8-8 might get it, although, they'd want to win that last game with NE (who they seemingly play tough no matter what the records).   That being said, they are still the "current" Bills, and until they can show some consistency, they are also a team that those teams they are playing are looking at and going "that's a winnable game" (less the first 3, but, certainly Miami.... if Buffalo is 7-7 by then, the Miami game is probably a "stay alive" game at that point for both teams).   Buffalo will have shown some backbone if they can reel off 5 wins in a row... but I'm wouldn't bet on that in any stretch of the imagination.

I agree with pretty much everything. I doubt any team (besides the Jets) overlooks the Bills, this season has been packed with close games. The thing that makes me so excited for the future is that we finally seem to have a solid core of coaches, some big name players and a lot of youth.

Super Chronic: The Bestest: Devo: I am going to try to get a negative score in fantasy football next year. Degree of difficulty: must start starters.

I might pick Geno #1.

You really think Geno Smith will be starting somewhere next year?

Barring injury, I think the chance that Geno Smith will be the Jets' starting QB in 2014 is very close to 100%. You don't agree?

I don't think that it's a solid 100%. Remember that because he fell so far Geno was had for a song. He has a 4-year $5mil contract,with $405K guaranteed this year, and $600K next ...


They can make him backup or practice squad. Why keep him? Just because he was drafted in the 2nd round? Lots of early rounders get cut the next season, it happens. The Jets have no real money tied up in him was my only argument, so it doesn't even really matter if he stays or goes.

It was right according to the rule. It just wasn't a dirty hit, wasn't unnecessarily rough, and I don't think it's possible as a pass rusher to get to Brees the way he did and hit him "legally" without getting a flag most of the time. That would have (probably) been the end of the game but because the NFL over-protects QBs the Saints got a win.
