    October 5, 2007 -- IF ERIC Mangini and Brian Schottenheimer are wondering if their honeymoon with Jets fans is over, they should log on to jetsinsider.com and peruse the message board. Can't repeat some of the comments, even in our feisty tabloid, but suffice to say there are some colorful criticisms of the 1-3 start, the decision to punt on the first series in Buffalo, the delay in switching from Chad Pennington to Kellen Clemens - and I think I even saw somebody use the word “Kotitian."

    You have to go to the website and check out the guy that posts a video blog every week. He's a riot. Although his video from the Miami win is still up there, I suspect he had a heart attack after the Bills loss.

    Jets fans are ******* morons being unhappy with Pennington the way they are. He may not have a rifle arm bu he is one of the top 10 or 12 QBs in the game. How can you argue with a guy that has a 77% completion percentage and a QB rating of 106?

    JETS FANS ARE MORONS!

    That is HILAROIUS! My favorite part is the fact that he's so clearly READING IT off his computer. Not that he should memorize it, but still. Fantastic. REALLY worth the click!

    He's brought them to the playoffs every year that he has been healthy. I have never understood the whole Chad sucks thinking. The guy has had some very unfortunate injuries Broken wrist, Rotator cuff etc.. Its not like he has sat out with a bruised thigh or something.

    Yes, of course we are. Moron though I may be, if you'd like me to engage you on the point, I certainly will. I can even put it in terms that you'd understand more than any other team - posed in the form of a question:

    Stuck with a good, not great, quarterback, with one glaring weakness, is it better to stay with the guy who you KNOW can't bring you to the next level, or move on to the next option? Chad has had the benefit of every doubt, and I'll always remember him fondly for his competitiveness, accuracy, leadership, etc.. But Chad's weak arm means that our offense has no capacity to stretch the field and teams get to cheat on us.

    You may appreciate this. I may get some of the smaller details wrong, but there's a story about Bill Belichick preparing his Giant defense for a Superbowl match against a seemingly unstoppable Buffalo offense. He asked his defense the question: If I told you that all you had to do to win was to defend a 5x5 sqare 5 yards off the line, could you? Everyone agreed that they could. Of course. He then showed them film (*cough*), and the defense saw a good healthy portion of the K-Gun offense, consisted of passes dropped into a 5x5 square, 5 yards off the line - particularly everything thrown to Thurman Thomas. Just by defending that square, they could take Thurman and a large chunk of the Bills' wicked offense out of the game. I believe that gameplan is now in the Pro Football Hall of Fame - but someone may correct me on that.

    The point being, if I told my defense that all they had to do to beat the Jets was to defend a section of the field between the hashes from five to twelve yards out, I'm making my defense's job so much easier. And, as we saw last week, when a team is unable to throw a sharp out-route, the two minute drill takes FOUR minutes. Everything is in the middle of the field. It's maddening. Much in the way it was maddening for you, I'm sure, when Drew Bledsoe stood in the pocket surveying the field for an eternity, before his world caved in on him.

    But, I'll remain a moron.

    Their frustration comes out when Pennington (or the play callers) don't recognize his limitations and it results in a pick at a bad time. Not every QB can do everything, and it's the role of the coaching staff to scheme around them. If the defenses keys on certain things (as Sundayjack pointed out in his excellent post) you counteract that focus. The Jets have been, and still are, saddled with average coaching which makes above-average results difficult to achieve.
