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 am a die hard Bears fan but if they brought in the dogkiller I would start rooting for the packers. I hope things go better than predicted. I am not happy with how my team is doing either. Sundays game was a joke. Stupid Bears

Re: Not VICK
Same boat, buddy. If this Bears game goes to crap like the last 2 have, I might just put on the games from earlier in the season. You know, the ones where our defense was just blisteringly awesome.

I agree George, screw Vick. He turns the ball over almost as much as Sanchez does anyway.

I know your pain too, I'm a Bills fan so I've been suffering for a long time :(

Now how will the Giants fare vs the Ravens this weekend? After a three game losing streak the Ravens are going to go all out on this one.

I've got to root for McElroy. (And I don't even follow the Jets). Roll Tide!

Interesting to see your perspective on Vick, given that you wrote the redemption of Jaime Lannister after shoving an 8-year-old Bran out the window, and the (sort-of; avoiding spoilers) redemption of Sandor Clegane after murdering little Mycah.

If Vick had been mostly unrepentant, that would be one thing. But he seems to be genuinely trying to work to mitigate some of the damage he caused (e.g., http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/dogfighting/qa/vick_faq.html). I mean, who knows what's in that guy's heart, but he wouldn't be the first to turn things around after really awful actions.

Anyway, no condemnation, everyone's entitled to an opinion. Just thought it was interesting.

Re: Vick
The difference being that Mr. Martin's characters are fictional. No one or no thing is actually harmed in a book, unlike the horrible things Vick did that were all too real.

The fact that Michael Vick is allowed to play, profit and thrive is absolutely appalling to me. :(

Precisely. The only one worse than Vick is Rothlisberger. "What, you're a rapist? Ah, no big deal- keep up those TD passes!" Argh.

Lots of options for the Jets
Both Alex Smith and Matt Flynn will be available via trade so there will be some quality QBs out there. But keep in mind - QB isn't the only issue with the Jets.

You're spot on about Vick. Horrible person. And he's a terrible QB to boot. He can't fade away too soon.

I am really crossing my fingers on McElroy.

Someone needs to slip Vick a note that he will be less defended by the Jets than the Eagles and that more than one concussion is in his future if he depends on that offensive line to protect him.

Tebow was to sell T-shirts or rather Jets Jerseys which he has done and can now be gotten rid of because they sure as heck aren't selling PSLs right now.

The Jets are a mess and that ship won't be righted until someone mans up and tells Rex that he is out of there. All of Rex's picks have been disasters.

Hate the Patriots all you want, but they did build up one hell of a QB.

Michael Vick needs to be booted out of the NFL, he's a stain on the sport.

"Hate the Patriots all you want, but they did build up one hell of a QB."

amazing how good you can be when you know what the enemy defense is going to do every play

Animals are reputed to talk at midnight on Christmas eve. Find a horse then, and ask him (or her).

And Michael Vick makes Evil Little Bill look like a saint!

Well, I am an Eagles fan so if you guys get Vick I can only offer you my deepest condolences. I do believe he has genuinely changed quite a bit since spending time in prison but beyond that he is a pretty awful quarterback. He can still throw a beautiful spiral and make an occasional great play which makes you kind of like him (hmmmm...starting to remind me of a certain kingslayer) but he can't read defenses if his life depended on it. If you thought Mark Sanchez was bad at turning the ball over wait until you try a year with Vick and all his fumbles.

This is terrible
I actually wrote something of a taunt response about how the Jets should keep Sanchez because I'm a Patriots fan and I like seeing them lose; but then I realized that it really doesn't matter who the Jets have as QB, they will never consistently be in contention for the AFC Title.

They can try to pry Cousins away from the Redskins...but that might make the Skins stronger and we don't want that.

Greg McElroy
I will say, Greg McElroy might be untested in the NFL for the most part but he was a hell of a QA at Alabama. Great field general. Didn't make that many mistakes and was constantly praised for his intelligence. I wouldn't be surprised if he steps up. Of course, it's the NFL so who knows. I'm pulling for him!

George you have finally reached my NFL pain
As a 30 year Bills Fan without a Championship or even a playoff birth in the decade I feel your pain.
