Default Can someone please tell the Jets...

...that this is a passing league now !!! H-E-L-L-0 !!!

Everyone knows you cannot win by running the ball, playing tough D - for 60 min.

What are they trying to do ? Ruin everything or something.

You have to pass the ball to win now a days.

I'd appreciate it if someone could let them know.


Thank you.

Ya know what gets me? All those years under Cowher we did not look as good as the Jets are looking right now. Maybe it's because their D is more attack style and less conservative or something ??


I still can't see them getting by the Colts.... Who happen to kinda like the passing game just a bit....

Of course you can win by running the ball and especially playing tough defense. But you still need to be able to pass the ball, plain and simple. The Jets have gone up against 2 teams who were not great run-stopping defenses and will be facing a 3rd this Sunday. However, when they have gone up against good run defenses, they have struggled, and "The Sanchise" threw picks like it was nobody's business. The thing is, the Steelers have the ability to do both effectively - they did both effectively this past season. It was when they NEEDED to run is where they failed more often than not, and I am confident that BA and Tomlin will fix that next season.

Maybe we should tell the Colts you can't win throwing the ball either.

Well the Jets, Ravens, Eagles and now Rivers have learned their Quarterbacks lack a wide food pipe and tend to choke when it comes time to man up in the big games. They have no alternative but to run the ball.
Was something wrong with Rivers arm, it looked like he was shot putting the ball all game.

Last week the ratbirds took the ball out of flaccos hands and he still managed to toss the balls 4 times into the Pats hands, fortunately or unfortunately the ball wasnt caught n any of them.
Sanchez was no different, the Chargers dropped a couple they should've had, Sanchez wanted to give it to them, lol. Ryan was smart enough to not let his choker boy have the ball.

The jets game came down to 2 qb's, who would choke the hardest? Chargers had to pass, which moved rivers up to the top of the choking chain.
Its a shame these dumbass players can't control themselves and get personal fouls on going. the team should have a 2nd PF foul penalty in their contracts. Its unreal how many the Steelers had, now the chargers, ravens etc late in the games.

I got to root for manning one game here to destroy the jets, than have the Saints come in beat the Vikes, and run it up on the colts. Perfect storm, no one I know can have bragging rights in that situation, lol
If the jets make it, I might as well kill myself, lol

The jets will find out this week. A rookie QB will not go to the SB...

I knew it was only a matter of time until somebody overstated the exception to the rule....the Jets are the only team in the playoffs that ran more than passed. They are, I think, the only running team in the NFL with a winning record...and the REAL reason they win is defense....and Sanchez NOT throwing a bunch of INT's.

But their run ends next week anyway, and it will be two passing teams in the Super Bowl.
