    Sean Payton was also a candidate for the Jets job.

    In your opinions, do you think the Jets would have been better with him?

    So the question is, how can a coach, genius or not, take a team that was 10-6... improve them in the offseason and then go 1-5 to start the season.

    The answer of course is clear. The Patriots provided evidence to the NFL that ManJudas was videotaping signal calling last year, which is now just beginning to leak to the mainstream press. Obviously that must have made all the difference in the world to ManJudas as his team falls back to earth, lacking the support of videotaping signal calling.

    Now personally I've not seen the strategic advantage gained in videotaping signals, but the Jets and Jets fans certainly think there is one, so this must explain how the team could get so bad so quickly.

    The Jets and the League cornered the market on Schadenfreudation.

    Now that the stupidity has died down, we can once again become the masters of Scadenfreudonomy.

    Ha ha ha you little punk. You got to laugh in private over your little camera stunt - now you're 1-5 and the Patriots are 6-0. Don't f*ck with Belichick.

    I object to your use of the term "improve" at lunch time.

    Our inactivity was, in fact, subtraction. Adding Thomas Jones of Big Stone Gap, Virginia (the greatest name of any town anywhere) was, at best, standing in place.

    Continuing with defensive personnel ill-suited for the defense they are asked to play was subtraction. Continuing with a quarterback who has only one-third of the field with which to work was subtraction (but excusable until this point). Reducing our offensive line to learning talent only was subtraction.

    Yes...that's why I didn't post any pictures. This is a PG-rated forum, I think.

    I suppose so... interestingly I was of the opinion that Jones was a steal for a 2nd round pick...

    I also felt that the draft was a potential mistake, going for a few choice players rather than the quantity of players I felt the Jets needed... though I felt the choices that were made were pretty solid.

    Obviously things aren't working out like Jets nation had hoped.

    I don't think having Thomas Jones is standing in place. He's better than any RB you had last year. He's not meeting Curtis Martin expectations 99% of Jets fans had for him in the preseason

    You have to admit it, what the Patriots are doing IS one of the greatest Smackdowns in history! ;)

    In the course of a couple months he has gone from Mangenius to Mangina to Mankotite. He'll be a DB coach next year.

    Belichick does the QB sneak in that situation a lot. Just not when it's likely to fail.

    Belichick uses the 3-4 most of the time. Just not when it's likely to fail.

    Monkey see, monkey do...but monkey no understand!!

    [Edit] Oh...and monkey fling poopoo at zookeeper when mad!

    Looking at the upcoming schedule, the Jets have a couple of winnable games (Cinci & Buffalo) before a nasty three-game stretch of Washington, Pittsburgh, Dallas. If they don't win those winnable games you're looking at meltdown and likely mutiny. IMO the Bengals game this week is a huge one for Mangini to maintain some legitimacy as an NFL head coach.

    Go Bengals! :)

    I'm wondering at what point the organization seriously considers letting Tubby go. Say he recovers to 6-10 or 7-9, then he's probably back in 2008. But do they cut bait at 4-12 (or worse)? What's the threshold? Should be interesting, especially if he sticks with Pennington.

    The Jets wont dump Mankotite after one bad year (although they did dump Pete Carroll pretty quickly). One more year of pathetic football and Manboobs is coaching Pop Warner football in Poughkeepsie.
