The Knicks played hard, but their coach let them down with poor play calling and especially on the last shot by Melo.  You have to do a better job of getting the defender off of Melo so he can get a clean look.  A curl play or double screen, SOMETHING to help make for a higher % shot.  Woody is not a good offensive coach and that wasn't a good look for Melo.

It's unfortunate that it happened like this, but in the end It's not the end of the world.  Geno was likely going to play at some point this year.  I actually think this franchise needs to see as much of Geno as possible to know if he's going to be the future or if they'll need to draft another QB next year.  I actually think Geno will play well enough to win some games.  He just needs reps.  If he gets the majority of the reps from here on he'll be more ready in the regular season.

We need some perspective.  The INT's are bad but not predictive of the future.  This was the kids 1st NFL start and the Giants are a legit test.  You have to account for nerves and the speed of the game getting to him.  With more reps Geno will calm down and be less mistake prone.  The kid needs more reps.  Also considering the edge Mark had coming into this, plus Mark having 2 starts against week teams.  I find it interesting that overall Mark has completion% of 66.7% and Geno with 5 fewer passes and 1 start is at 59.5%.  That's only 7% difference.

The thing about this team is that too many people are looking at the team by position and not looking at the cumulative effect of the improved talent on this team.  the DL is going to actually make the LB's and DB's better.  The overall improvement in speed is also going to make this team more explosive on both sides of the ball.  

Offensively this team should have an improved OL.  I like the depth and quality of the OL.  That's gonna help the RB's who are very talented compared to what we've had in previous seasons.  Then you can see that K. Winslow, B. Edwards, Kerley and Hill is a much better group than people are giving them credit for.

@1 12 69 OrangeBowl @Jetsluva UGH!  Don't remind me of the awful events of the Buttfumble game.   It's just not some fluke or poor circumstances.  Mark just doesn't make things better.  A good QB would make the most of a bad situation but as Steve Young said  "Mark accelerates the down".  He actually makes things WORSE when they're going bad.  I'm so hoping Geno wins the starting QB job cuz at least I have some faith he can get it done.  I have no faith in Sanchez anymore.

@OneJetAtATime @Jetsluva Yeah you have to look past the oversimplified statements about lack of WR's or the OL.  Yes those things do effect what a QB can do, but clearly Mark made things worse than they had to be.  Teams have all kind of aids for a QB to know what he's missing and adjust.  Mark doesn't seem to learn from that info.  The amount of open receivers he misses is insane.  He seems to choose the wrong WR to throw to way too often.  There are shorter QB's who could be excused if they couldn't see an open WR, but even they don't miss guys and at least learn how to move in order to create a throwing lane.   Mark tries to throw over defensive lineman way too much and it never works.  Just a couple of nifty steps and he'd be able to deliver the ball.  SMH :(

Brian I can't tell you how much I enjoy your breakdowns of the Jets plays in games.  These are some of the most informative articles anywhere.  Not just the usual meaningless fluff pieces or a Jet bashing that doesn't provide any insight into the team.  I think this illustrates why I feel so strongly that Geno is going to win the job.  I just think Sanchez has some serious flaws as a player.  Sure it's possible that Marty's system will be better for Mark, but let's get real.  Mark has never really been good.  He's had more success but only in spurts and we tend to overlook the poor performances when the team wins.

My biggest issue with Mark is the decision making and the panic mode he goes into.  We just don't get that in control, confident QB you expect on this level.  Even in bad situations you'll see good QB's make better decisions with the ball.  They'll take advantage of the one opening they get against a tough defense.  Too often there are open receivers and he doesn't see them or just makes a bad throw.  Also I hate his pocket presence.  He moves terribly.  Some QB's buy time with just a few small steps left or right.  They dance back there without taking their eyes off the field.  Mark seems to have no sense of the pocket as if he has no peripheral vision.  That's a problem you can't fix with a new offense.

Once again good work.  Ca't wait for the next one.

Heck, if Camby can occupy a roster spot last year surely this guy can be a useful reserve on the bench.  McMorrow isn't going to dazzle you with his skills, but he's 7-2 and full of muscles.  That can be useful in the NBA, even tho it's hard to see in the SL games.  Jeremy Tyler is so talented that you can see it easily in the SL style of games.  Same goes for Jennings and Vargas.  They all have offensive skills and agility that tends to shine in a fast moving SL game.  McMorrow would show his worth in the NBA against Hibbert and other strong bigs.

LOVE Murry's game.  I like big PG's and he's got length and lateral quickness to defend.  I also like his silky smooth offensive game.  He just passes the eye test for me as a KNICK Type player.  He's like a skinny Shump.  I heard Woody say he wants to see this kid in Camp.  I hope that's true.

I believe this is only a small sample of what Geno has been doing.  I understand he's been with other players and may be training with Bommarito Performance Systems.  I think Geno is gonna come back ready and in his best shape ever.  I think he's gonna take the job from Sanchez.   He's just a more talented QB and all he needs is reps to get more comfortable.  Can't wait for TC to get here.

Geno doesn't need any help from Mark.  The small amount of time with the WR's isn't going to make or break Geno's ability to hit his WR's with timing.  Geno is a superior talent to Mark and the only thing the coaches said about him was that he needed to master the playbook, his ability to spit out the plays, improve his footwork taking the ball from under center!  They never said anything about his ability to throw and hit his WR's with accuracy and good timing when his feet were right.  That's why Geno was right to skip this ego trip for Mark.  


If i'm Geno I say "F Sanchez" "I'm coming to take your job Mark"  that's what this is about getting your game face on and letting him know he's not Tebow.  Mark invited Tebow cuz he didn't fear him.  In fact it was a diss to Tebow tho Tebow didn't know it.  Geno is the future and the future is now!!!  My money is on Geno.

I hate to say it, but I don't think Mark will beat out Geno in the Pre Season.  I think Geno is the kind of guy that wants it bad and will do everything he can to be ready when they get to TCamp.  It's not like he was totally out of his depth.  As the coaching staff mentioned over and over, he would often look just as good as Mark and that's with Mark having every advantage under the sun.  Mark had longer with the playbook, access to the film room and Marty, tutoring with Garcia and 3 yrs of NFL exp.  and he still didn't wipe the floor with Geno.  That tells me that he's gonna pass Mark very quickly.  Geno just needs to get a better comfort level and then I think he'll take off.

Great article.  I think it's really difficult to be sure how much was Sanchez and how much the lack of skill players.   One thing that I remember from watching games was that there were winnable games where the team was in great scoring position and it was CLEARLY bad decisions by Sanchez that led to the loss.  The JJ Watt swat party was one of those games.  

My view of Sanchez is that he panics.  I don't get the sense that he can deal with adversity at all.  The Butt Fumble is a perfect example of that.  Some guys just find a way to make things happen, but Sanchez isn't talented enough to do that IMO.  Maybe Marty can put Sanchez in a better position to succeed, but IMO it's just covering up the fact that he's not a good QB.  A good QB can help WIN games for his team and Mark rarely does that.

@OneJetAtATime Man don't get me started on Geno and this offense!  I think this kid was hand picked by Marty.  He knows that Geno is a perfect match for what he wants to do.  Geno has that highly accurate and strong arm and he can move in the pocket very well.  I think too many fans and media are sleeping on Geno.  He'll come into Camp even better than he was in OTA's.  He's got all the tools needed to run the WCO.  He just hasn't been running it and needs time to get comfortable.  But IMO he's gonna shine in this system eventually.

This is a good article to underscore just how much of a plus this offense can get from having this OC as opposed to Sparano.  I'm so excited to see this team with Marty as OC and with the RB's we have.  All of them are actually pretty fast and if we can get these guys in various forms of Screens and other plays that can get them in space, they're going to gain a lot of yards.

Meh!  I think it's not about Milliner being Revis.  This kid is a LEGIT talent.  If you want to know just how amazing this kid is physically just watch his Sports Science Video.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rQ81bZV7TY

They show how Dee is basically as amazing a talent as Cromartie physically.  If you watch his game tape you can see that he's very versatile and he went up against some really great competition.   I think Rex will coach this kid up and he'll be great.  He doesn't have to be Revis.  Just be Dee Milliner!!!

@Jason_Astafan @Jetsluva Yes I think too often we don't give young players a chance to develop.  I know it's fashionable to always go with the vets, but there is always a diamond in the rough out there if a team is willing to put work into them.   We can always add a vet if it's necessary.  I'd like to see the kids get more reps so they can have a fair shot to develop.  Usually it takes time for the game to slow down and i'm sure these kids heads are swimming with all the new WCO plays and Rex's defense.

@OneJetAtATime @Jetsluva Yes I get the sense that Idzik is a patient man with a real plan for how he wants to rebuild this franchise.  I LOVE what he's done so far and I think this team is doing this right.  Build up both O and D Lines and add talent throughout the roster.  I think this team has more talent than people realize.  Can't make too much of the Media reports from OTA's and Mini camp.  Often there's a slant to that coverage, which feeds the negative stereotype of the Jets.

Nice synopsis of the available receivers.  I really am torn.  I don't know what the Jets should do.  As much as I want to see a guy like Brandon E. brought back, I also would love to see some new young receivers be given a chance to develop.  Almost all of the guys we brought in as UDFA's had speed, hands and size.  I don't know what is holding them back from being more effective, but i'd love to give them time to see if a couple of them break through.  More youth and health going forward would be nice.  In the end I know they'll bring in some vet though.  It just makes sense.

This is a great point.  I've read other Jets forums and as usual some fans started bashing Rex immediately assuming he was planning something dumb that would be detrimental to Smith and the team.  I really think people need to relax.  STOP BELIEVING THE MEDIA HYPE!  The Jets are not a circus or clown show.  2 very exciting AFC Championship games and 2 bad seasons doesn't prove this franchise is a joke.   Or do we just ignore the 2 really good seasons? 


Geno is gonna eventually win the job. He simply has more talent than Sanchez.  If he's pretty much matching Mark already it's only a matter of time before he passes him as he gets more familiar with this system and level of play.
