Re: [NFL] Week 5 Games Discussion

said by jabarnut:

...about the rant.
I'll try not to let it happen again.

Yeah, you may want to rethink that one, especially since the Jets next game looks to be as tough as their last.

Anyway, The O-line isn't that bad, Mangold and Ferguson in particular. But they can't seem to open holes for Greene to hit. And Greene isn't as shifty as he needs to be.
So the run game is craptastic.

Sanchez is throwing truly ugly passes, maybe it's because he's feeling rushed, maybe because he's got stage fright with Tebow on the sidelines. But he can pass when he has time, we've seen that.
And when Sanchez throws a nice pass, the Receivers can't catch it. And with Keller and Holmes out, there are fewer options.
So the pass game is craptastic.

The Defense can't get any pressure without resorting to weird schemes. And that doesn't even work most of the time. What happened to Maybin and Coples?
And the Defense can't stop the run, and with Revis out, they can barely stop the pass either. So Sanchez is going to be passing a lot once the opponents start scoring on them. But the pass game is craptastic, so... Tebow Time!!!

I wouldn't start Tebow, but I'd at least give him a series or two to see what he can do. At the very least he's more mobile than Sanchez. Maybe he can get something going.

Lol...I know, I'm changing like the New England weather in these threads. Hell, I'm just frustrated.
We were pretty damn good. What happened? (Well, I know a few of the reasons, but I can't figure out all of them).
But I've got a feeling whether Tebow gets some more playing time or not against the 4-0 Texans, it's going to be another ass kicking next Monday. I truly hope I'm wrong.

No, you're right, it's going to be an ass-kicking on Monday night. It would take a miracle of coaching and player performance for the Jets to eke out a win.

I would just like to see Tebow get some playing time in the loss.

Well, one thing for sure. We're true 100% NY fans. The minute they start losing, we're all over them.
Yeah, what the hell. It sure can't hurt to give Tebow some playing time.. I mean, at least he can't do any worse than come up with another goose egg like last week. (There aren't any games where the score of the losing team ends up in negative numbers, are there?)
I still think they should they should have made him a running back or even a tight end (not sure if he can catch though), and let him start in every game, with Sanchez at QB.

But yeah, you guys are right. Give him a shot one way or another instead of paying him to stay on the sideline and collect cobwebs.

The NY Jets, a team that is 2-2, but beset with injuries that is going nowhere and has to choose between a playboy quarterback who can't throw accurately and a good-looking virgin who can't throw at all? I can't help but root for them.

My pick this week is the Eagles over the Steelers.

The Philadelphia Eagles have won this season, despite Michael Vick's inconsistent play. They are 3-1, thus far, and given the level of panic you would think they were 1-3. The Steelers don't look invincible on defense any longer and will be hard pressed to make the play offs.

The GOTW will be NE vs Broncos. I love Peyton but he's not yet in sync to play Brady.

My upset will be Saints over the Chargers.

NE Broncs will be interesting.

Peyton is nothing if not a competitor. He very well could rise to an occasion.

Yeah, enough about the Jets for now. (Oops..I just mentioned them again).
Anyway, I'm looking forward to that Broncos at Patriots game too. (Sure wish they were playing in Denver). But I agree if anyone can rise to the occasion, it would be Manning.
They're still bringing it together and trying to click on all all cylinders (which I really think they'll do eventually). But there's nothing more I'd like than to see Peyton and the boys go into New England and destroy the Pats.
Man, I was praying when he was picking a team to play for, it would have been the Jets. (Oops...sorry, there I go again).

Yuppers! And it will be a high-scoring game as well!
