Jets Crash

As bad as that blowout the Giants suffered at Atlanta was, the Jets' loss to the Titans was worse.

As horrible as that Jets' 7-6 win over Arizona was, the loss to the Titans was worse.

A hideous game. Too hideous to write about.

And the aftermath is even worse. Sanchez to be traded? (Who would want him? He leads the league in turnovers, and his salary and cap figure are through the roof. What would they offer, a bag of used jockstraps?) Tebow wants out. (Who could blame him?) And next season, the rumor mill insists, Gang Green may start over again with...

.... Michael Vick.

Michael Fucking Vick.

No, thank you. I don't want Michael Vick on my team. If he comes here, I guess I root only for the Giants until the Dogkiller departs.

I guess I have only one shred of hope left to cling to. Maybe this Greg McElroy kid is the new Tom Brady. Yeah, he's a seventh round pick, but Brady was a sixth rounder. Maybe McElroy is the real deal...

Or maybe the horse will talk.

I don't care for all of these ASOIAF - Vick comparisons. If Jaime Lannister or Sandor Clegane lived today they would be tried and executed for their horrible crimes. Vick is a POS.

On a lighter note, Jets should go after Alex Smith and hire themselves a new OC to fix that offense.

Just started following your "not a blog". Glad to know you are not a Vick fan either! I'm a Patriots fan with a healthy respect for your Giants and Jets.

Love ya George. And all that you do. Just not wanting to see the Giants in the playoffs again this year. They always seem to have the 9ers number. Sunday was a good game but it makes me wonder "what if" it hadn't been for the kickoff flubs.

Being Scottish I was ignorant of this Vick character til now. However a search online revealed as much as I needed to know. This fucking bastard hung dogs alive(slow & agonisingly painful)and electrocuted them so they BURNT to death, crudely, receiving wave on wave of hellish agony. For fuck's sake! I am crying as I write this. NO-ONE SHOULD EMPLOY THIS person ever, ever, ever. What these poor animals must have suffered. Watching, hearing their fellow dogs scream, shriek, whine, gurgle, slather, vomit, piss & shit their lives away in agony and all the time wondering when they would be next. Whilst Vick & CO must have laughed and joked, enjoyed what they did. You do not go to all that bother unless you enjoy it. Good Christ Almighty, could they not just have shot the dogs instead of inflicting this cruel, heartless, torture & barbarity on them unless the deaths were part of the grisly show? Did these dogs bite them, attack them? What was the dogs' crime? The dogs failed to be aggressive enough and kill other dogs.People who act this way have their brains wired differently from most of us to begin with. Nobody made them this way and Vick certainly diod not need the money. He ENJOYED IT. The milk of human kindness just is not in them. Vick's body language since to anyone who really LOOKS can clearly see there is no remorse there. And he's written (ghost writers no doubt) an autobiography?! Hello, all he wants is money! Say who wants to read that or give Mr Vick one red cent? If he was in Westeros I'd give him to Qyburn or Nymeria (the four-legged one). But that's just being flippant. But I can't understand ANYONE wanting to employ this sorry excuse of a human being. What message does that send out? His hour of strutting & fretting upon the stage should be well and truly over. Done, finished, washed up, over. There must be plenty of good football players who deserve a job above him. Or are they just employing him perversely to get the media attention and bucks? As Oscar Wilde said, there is only one thing worse than being talked about & that is not being talked about... ? Truly sickening. I need to go & hug my dog & cats now. PS Apologies for swearing but sometimes you just have to.

As a Saints fan I would rather be in our shoes " if our coach comes back" than the Jets right now. I think Rex is a good coach and I like coaches like him in the NFL. I hope yall find a half way decent QB, get back the the ground and pound and tighten up that D. Good luck next year.

MacElroy is the QB for the jests he was a great game manager for Alabama and won a championship with them.

Ugh.
I'm an Eagles fan (essentially in hiding for the past three years), and I don't want Vick to go anywhere but into retirement. I wouldn't wish him on even the Cowboys or the Patriots, because the man does not deserve to be making that kind of money - either from a "you're a felon convicted of running an organized crime ring" perspective or a "you kind of suck as a quarterback" perspective.

So I've actually spent the last three years either ignoring the Eagles (difficult) or outright rooting against them (painful). I haven't pulled on my jersey once since Vick got here, so I can completely understand your distress.

They should've recruited Ser Robert Strong...

Ugh. I feel for you, and for what it's worth- I REALLY hope McElroy is the real deal. I personally would like to see Vick run out of the NFL.

I heard another rumor that I like more for Gang Green, which kind of got quashed when the realization Michael Vick wants employment came up: Alex Smith.

I think it makes a lot of sense. Smith is a good QB (#3 on total QBR). He didn't lose his job to incompetence. He has playoff experience. He's also younger, which I'd like the Jets to have, that way they're not wondering about this again in a few years.

Whoever they go with, I hope Rex learned his lesson from the Tebow experiment. Controversial celebrity players aren't a great idea.

Vick never should have been allowed back in the NFL. And he also has a dog again.}:/

Buying a #7 Ron Mexico Jets jersey, I can't think of a better Christmas gift.

I don't think the comparison to Jamie is fair
Who did Jamie torture for entertainment and money? True he tried to kill a child, but his own children's lives were at risk. He didn't form a company and invite his friends to watch children dangle out windows and take bets on where the child would land.

Its just not a fair analogy.

I had that Giants game circled for weeks, but we lose to Carolina then blow out the Giants. Go figure.

So I hate Vick too. Forgiving someone is one thing; embracing them is another. When a player joins our team, we want to be able to embrace them. I don't see how anyone can do that with Vick.

Second chances
Mike Vick Screwed up and he payed for it. He is still paying for it. He spent time in jail and it cost him millions. Nothing wrong with letting it go now. He has payed the price. I was not a fan of Vick when he was in Atlanta. I was not a fan of his when he went to jail. After Listening to him speak on the subject after he was released I became a fan. I felt like he was honest to himself and he was honest to us. He was punished, and I am willing to let it go. I hope you can to.

I am a life long Cowboys fan, and I wouldn't watch them if Vick were our QB either. At least you have your Giants...
