O Favre O Favre why hast thou forsaken me???

Postby SniperShot » Sun Dec 07, 2008 6:59 pm

WHY???

WHY!!!

San Fransisco was a dream matchup!

WHY!

I'm not down and out yet but this performance makes winning an uphill battle. Cooley, Steve Smith and Bryant are going to have to have SOLID nights tonight/tomorrow. Usually when I post here in dire situations it's come through for me in the past so HERE IT GOES AGAIN.

I'd really rather not get eliminated in week 1 of the playoffs...

Pleeeeease fantasy football gods help me!

The Jets suck. End of story. This is awful. We just can't win on the West coast at all. San Diego, Oakland, and now San Fran. We must win against Seattle on the road are we can kiss the playoffs goodbye. With Miami having to play Kansas City and San Fran the next two weeks it can come down to the Jets vs Miami week 17 in the meadowlands. If the Jets are a game back of Miami the Jets can't make it due to tie-brakers. Pretty pathetic... Just win out and you're in.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

I'll be at that game and I hope we knock you guys out of the playoffs. It's Holmgren's last home game in Seattle and even if we lose 3 spots in the draft I would like to see him finish his career in Qwest Field with a win.

Plus I love playing spoiler.

Pennington will make the Jets look like fools when he beats them in week 17 and consequently knocks them out of the playoffs

10 carries for Thomas Jones...pathetic. Have they not figured out that the running game is the strength of this team? Idiots.

I hope this happens so all these Favre lover blowhards can swallow that one.

I don't know if it's worth Seattle to move 3 spots in the draft to have the one win against the Jets. The Hawks need some help :-b

Agreed. The one thing that I have to comment on is that the Jets were trailing the entire game and rarely had the ball. They had it for nearly 20 minutes less than the 49ers and ran a little bit less than 30 plays than the 49ers. The 49ers just outplayed and out coached the Jets today. Was pretty pathetic.

Yep, they had ZERO ball control. I feel like I come in here and beat my head against the wall every week because the Jets still haven't figured out they are better off centering the offense around the running game and not Favre. They have a great 1-2 punch with TJ and Washington but they keep trying to force a square peg into a round hole.

Here is an interesting article from PFT. Coles speaks about Favre, but mostly complains about his role in the offense. I think this is pretty indicative of what I have been saying the last few weeks, this team has no identity whatsoever.

COLES ON FAVRE: THE JUGS MACHINE THROWS HARDER
Posted by Josh Alper on December 7, 2008, 8:32 p.m. EST

As if the Jets woeful play over the last two weeks wasn’t enough for them to worry about, they may have a little problem in the locker room when Brett Favre hears what Laveranues Coles had to say about him.

John Crumpacker of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Fanhouse) shared some comments that Coles made before today’s 24-14 loss to the 49ers. Coles thinks that Favre’s reputation as a good quarterback with a strong arm isn’t justified.

“I catch balls from the Jugs machine. The ball probably comes out harder from there than it does from anywhere else … Of course he’s the big name, he’s the Hall of Famer, he’s going to get the majority of the credit but most of the guys who deserve the credit don’t really get it.”

Coles, who bemoaned the loss of Chad Pennington after the Favre trade, is also unhappy with his role in the offense.

“We’re in a quarterback-driven offense where he pretty much has control of everything, where before the offense was pretty much driven through me. … I just kind of become a role player instead of a guy that teams had to prepare for … This is his offense. When we do throw the ball, there’s really no level of importance, where at one point it used to be where I was the guy … in position to get the ball most of the time.”

Coles is second on the team with 56 catches for 620 yards. Jerricho Cotchery, with 59 and 702, leads in both categories. Coles has scored six times, however, which is best on the Jets and one shy of his career best in that category.

Honestly, Coles needs to keep his mouth shut and just play the game. We're in the middle of a three-way divisional race and he has to come out like this? This s*** is old. Stop being a selfish player and just play the game.
