A loss is a loss…


Look, it’s the end of the 3rd quarter and barring another “Vinny” like comback, this game is over. Luckily, it only counts as 1 loss. The Jets will have a chance to regroup and play the Cardinals next week.

The Bottom Line is that Mangini and company were right to build this team to run the ball and play defense. I won’t go into the fact that Pennington just blew out the Pats while the Jets have fallen to the bottom of the division.

The point is that this is not Brett Favre’s fault. You can’t bring in a 39 year old QB and change the entire system to match what some people think his strengths are. Most of us knew this would happen! Let’s be real. In 2005 & 2006 Brett Favre averaged 38 attempts per game and collectively led the NFL in interceptions. In 2007, they scaled him back to 32 and they went to the NFC Championship on the shoulders of Ryan Grant. I know I’d rather ride Thomas Jones than Ryan Grant! Come on Jets fans… let’s start living in reality that we need Favre to be a game manager. We need him to throw the ball away and play field position instead of taking stupid chances.

I’ve said it since this trade took place! THE JETS WILL NOT WIN ON THE SHOULDERS OF BRETT FAVRE! THE ONLY CHANCE THEY HAVE IS TO RELY ON A SOLID RUNNING GAME & A STOUT DEFENSE. They need to win the turnover battle and time of possession.

Is it a miracle that Bill Parcells wins everywhere he goes? NO! He believes in this philosophy which makes teams competitive, the exact opposite of what happened to the Jets tonight.

I’m going to give the guys a pass tonight… Mangini should have known better than to listen to the writers and fans! He should’ve stuck to his guns. I would’ve had more respect for him. He needs to go back to basics and use this as a learning experience!

In the words of Brian McNamee… Week 3 “is what it is”!!!

    No matter who is the quarterback, coach, etc., this team is just terrible year in and year out.   It is the most impossible franchise to be a loyal fan.   I can’t bear to watch a game anymore – it’s painful to look forward to a Monday night prime time game all week and then have the game be over before half-time.   So far, I’ve seen nothing from Mangini that impresses me.   A few more losses like this one and it’s time to call him Manidiot.

    By the way, what a great decision to go 4 WR’s from the 1/4 yard line!!! Good thing we paid Faneca, Woody, Richardson, Jones and drafted two first round picks on the O-line! It makes a whole lot of sense! Brett Favre is the savior… let’s keep throwing on every play!!! What a great strategy!!!

    I agree Reiser… It’s heart wrenching every year. I can’t stand it! I will say, the Green Bay fans have been dealing with these same games for years. While I was in the service, I met a few huge Packer fans from Wisconsin and this kind of game is what they said has killed them for years now. Even when they won a Superbowl, it was on the shoulders of Reggie White & Desmond Howard, not Brett Favre. Yes, he’s flashy and sometimes these crazy throws work, but to win consistently, you need to manage the game and unfortunately that didn’t happen last night. This team was built for a Pennington/Clemens led team, not a gunslinger like Favre. All of the sudden they bring in Favre and everyone is expected to change their entire philosophy. It made no sense to me at the time, and I’m still trying to figure it out. This isn’t fantasy football!

    What a will say, is that I hope and pray that the Jets can get their act together. They need to pull themselves up and play an us against the world mentality. Favre needs to trust the coaches and his receivers. This can’t be about Brett… he just needs to be a part of the answer. The running game needs to be the key… Favre just needs to get the ball in the hands of the playmakers. If they don’t realize this quick, they are screwed!
