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.

Re: Redemption Over Revenge
You present your position eloquently, and I cannot find any fault with your principles. I admire your compassion and your capacity for forgiveness.

I still do not want Vick on my team, however.

Re: Redemption Over Revenge
On strictly a football level, I think Colin Cowherd stated it well when he said that Vick is a QB that, over his career, hasn't improved his game. He has relied on his speed and footwork which has now started to slow, but hasn't improved his passing ability nor his leadership abilities.

Regardless of what anybody thinks of Vick as a person, the bottom line is that he is no longer a viable option as a starting quarterback. I believe a large part of the argument, besides Vick's atrocities, is that the Jets have been a circus and adding Vick only adds to that circus atmosphere/mentality. I think the Jets would be much more rewarded by pursuing Kirk Cousins from Washington or Matt Flynn from Seattle.
