    I don't see it cause I believe his job is on the line, but would he let his hate for us go that far?

    OH YA.

    I doubt it, as the Jets can still win the division by beating Miami and the Pats losing in Buffalo. However, I wouldn't put it past that little rat.

    They can still win the division if they win and the Pats lose.

    Nope because the Pats-Bills game is at the same time as Jets-Dolphins so he wouldn't know yet if we beat bills.

    I thought the same way but as someone pointed out to me in the other thread, Mangini's job is likely on the line next week. Especially after the decision to not kick the FG and not punt away late in the Seattle game.

    No. Because unless the Pats are up by 3-4 TDs in the fourth, a Jets win could still win the division if the Pats lose. Both games are at 1PM.

    This topic has already come up in Jets forums I've been to. Apparently, they despise losing to Miami (on purpose or not) because it would mean their former Quarterback beat them. My own thought is that it would also mean that once Brady is back next year, the Jets would have traded places with Miami as being the second best to the Pats next season. On top of that, as I've said here before, Mangini and Favre might not even be back here next year, and even if they get a better coach, might be a 4-12 team again like last year. Also, beating Miami would let them have a chance for the AFC East title, as well as a wildcard spot if Baltimore happens to lose.

    Jets Miami game most likely to get picked up by NBC or moved to 4:00. . .

    THINK, people. I've said here for weeks now that Mangini's job and HC career would be on the line in game 16 and he would not try to lose.

    Boomer postgame said that the decision to go for it on 4th from your own 20 with over 2 minutes and 3 TOs was a "way to lose your job". Mangini's only way outa the Rat Trap he got himeslf into is to WIN Sunday and hope the Jills upset the Pats and/or the Ravinz lose.

    I don't think that fat RAT will dare to lose. But his team looks so bad against crappy teams that I think he is out of his league.

    I thought flex game moves have to be announced 12 days in advance. Is it different in week 17?

    NBC can decide later than 12 days prior for week 17 only. we'll find out tonight in their promos most likely.

    I don't think you can move the time of a game this close to the actual game. I think there is a 13 day rule. The same as a game that is moved to Sunday Night Football.

    I am pretty sure both will stay at 1 PM. Besides, CBS has SD and Denver at 4:15 and that will be for the AFC West.

    Yeah.

    Week 17 start time changes could be decided on 6 days notice to ensure a game with playoff implications.

    Although it's unlikely that the Ravens will lose to Jacksonville next week, if they do lose, there's still that wildcard spot open too.

    If we win out, the Jets win next week, and the Ravens lose, the Jets could still get that wildcard.

    Just checked the schedule next week. There is no late game, so the game can't be changed!

    I don't know exactly how it works, but hopefully they can't move it. It's not a question of the Jets trying to lose, but if they find out that day they're out if it, their hearts will be ripped out. I remember a season LONG ago when the Pats were kicked out the day they played the last game, and they had no heart. It's human nature.

    Why would the Jets throw next week?

    am i missing something they need a win and NE loss and they are in

    Both teams play at 1:00 its not like they will have the advantage of knowing the outcomes.

    i highly doubt that the jets throw the game next week
    especially with the rats job on the line

    It's official the SD/Denver game is for the AFC West. The likelihood of either AFC East game getting moved to 4 PM has dwindled quite a bit.

    IT only needs to be 6 days for week 17. CBS and Fox can not protect games this week. I can't imagine if Denver loses that NBC wouldn't want SD/Denver AFC West title game

    Thank goodness because that would be really unfair. It's FAR more exciting to have them both play at the same time.

    The league wants to avoid games being thrown like Indy Ten last year.

    Really ought to be a league rule against moving a game with crucial implications for other teams to a later slot in last 2 weeks.

    CBS pretty much has to move 1 or 2 games to 4:15 next week.

    Re: Why would the Jets throw next week?

    Game times for next week have not been set.

    NBC will select an 8 pm game and then based on that CBS and Fox will adjust the 1/4 games.

    Either the Jets game or the Giants game will be moved to 4 or 8 since they cannot play at the same time. Since the Giants game is meaningless next week, the Jets will likely not play at 1.

    NBC doesn't have a game next week.
