just what I've talked about Snorve Turner... if he's such a great o c he could've done this with LT... remember those great packages he used to run with both Turner and LT? Yep, neither do I...

Wow....I guess you're new to watching football...and you must have missed the playoffs last season.

The Jets have been running their form of the wildcat for a few seasons now with Leon Washington....they called it 'The Seminole'....and last season with Brad Smith. You might have seen it in the playoffs and in the AFC Championship game :). But they never 'cried' about Miami running it. They simply stated that it's a gimmick offense....especially when it's your #1 option on O....and thats the truth.

You guys had to rely on a gimmick in order to win a few games. Thats why you aren't a real threat to win a SB. You might fool a team running it over and over in your first meeting, but the second time they see it, they're gonna stop it....assuming they have a good D.

But hey, enjoy your gimmick O with a RB who can't stay on the field for 16 games (Ronnie Brown), your WR who'd rather be playing basketball, and on D the highest paid OLB in NFL history, LOL....yeah, that's a good contract, LOL.

If the defense you are playing against does not have the ability to adjust to the wildcat, why would you not run it down their throat? I dont think the Jets beat the Dolphins once last year did they?

Wild Horn Frog?

How about "Rex the Wonder Cat?"

"Dirty Sanchez?"

"Jet Blew?"

C'mon, a team that must hire a team of professional publicists has to be able to come up with something that doesn't sound like it gives you warts.

Yes, back to LT's college roots, like that will make a difference. He will still miss more time than being on the field.

The Wonder Cat? The Wonder Whale is more like it.

They didn't....but the second meeting was a loss due to a TOTAL breakdown on special teams. I think the Jets help the Phins ) to somewhere around 120 yards of total offense that game, but Ted Ginn Jr. took matters into his own hands, returning 2 kicks for TD's.


I don't think that'll be the case this season.

I think the Jets are going to be fun to watch this year.

I like this version of the truth better.

Oh how they cried. It was really sad to seen grown men act like little girls who lost their way. It was funny, but sad.

LT can pass, but his legs are about shot.

I think I will enjoy it. They've got a lot of uncleared checks out there. The playoffs last season were a gift from the Colts. Once they matched up again, the Jets were found wanting. The Bengals were just happy to be there and the Chargers fold every season in the playoffs. I doubt the Jets can back up their trash talk.

Your QB is unproven and you have several players unhappy with their contracts. Sounds like a proven SB route to me.

Put a running back that can't run at QB... brilliant!
