    Re: New York Jets- a model for success?

    I'd rather look at the Dolphins or Falcons..rather than the Jets.

    Re: New York Jets- a model for success?

    I'm not so sure that I agree with the OP that we have similarities.
    Certain that they were not flawless last night.One fewer great plays by their free agents, K. jenkins and favre, and they would have lost.
    One fewer great plays and they would not have been flawless? Therefore they were flawless.

    Re: New York Jets- a model for success?

    What is with the excuses here? So they won the coin toss??? You nor I know what the outcome could have been if it was the other way around.

    I'm giving up, and I have a supply of midol for you guy's.

    Maybe in the first half, but in the second they gave up an 18 point lead and had they not won the coin toss in overtime they would have lost that game.

    Better than our Rams, yes. Flawless, not even close.

    Re: New York Jets- a model for success?

    No doubt the Rams F.O. could take a page from the NYJ 2008 preparations to win more games. A page or two.

    As for CaliGirl's assessment of the Jets performance Vs. N.E., I think she's right in making her point. Especially in OT, I'd say that was flawless*.



    *. - The term 'flawless' is, of course, relative; as in "perfect" when used in the NFL -- no one expects 100% pass completion from an offense, zilch negative yards, etc. Again, that's why I'm siding with CGRF.

    Re: New York Jets- a model for success?

    NYJ spent a great deal of money in the post season, can't see us replicating that myself. Hopefully we will get it right, eventually, but I am none too hopeful of a one season turn around. From my limited knowledge (uk football fan generally, watch rams as and when I can), it will be a slow process but hopefully good foundations can be built upon.

    Welcome to the Clan, JOKA!

    It may be difficult right now (they ARE learning from Jets "et al"), but do hang in there w/the RAMS!

    Re: New York Jets- a model for success?

    Not waning in my support, always been brought up to follow through thick or thin. Honestly believe it will take some some time, least we seem to be making the right choices. Sooner we are genuinely competitive the better! Attitude is so important though, especially in the situation we are in/ jets were in. Hopefully people like Devaney et al can bring in people of the right mindset.

    LOL ...long day & I could use a Midol or 10.

    I just don't see how you can ignore losing the lead like that & their porous secondary. Cassel looked like Michael Vick sprinting down an empty field. A better team than the current Patsies might & should have made them pay for that.

    The OT drive was impressive but what about the 3rd quarter?

    The Jets D allowed 31 points & almost 200 yds more vs NE than we did . Flawless?!

    As I said in my post that you quoted, I think The Jets are a good model to look at . Very solid in most areas but not nearly flawless. Defense wins championships,right?

    Let's make it easy for both of us. The PAT"S LOST! Great feeling huh?

    Come on, I know you can say it.

    Re: New York Jets- a model for success?

    Say it?! I laughed and yelled it. And there were few moments this season that made me happier than when the Whiners blew it against the Cards.

    Let's hope we get to say that again on Sunday.

    Wish I could tailgate with you guys tomorrow but I have to go to a wedding with my girlfriend.

    I know, I know; I'm so whipped. Pathetic.

    Go Rams Now & Forever

    Does the name Lorena Bobbitt mean anything to you?

    Just kidding. it's MY friend getting married. I'm an usher.Besides, it's an open bar & I'm sure one of the guys has one of those mini portable tvs.

    It'll be like one of those old beer ads with the guys hiding in the clothes racks watching the game while the women shop.

    Not every woman has her priorities straight like you,CGRF.

    Good point. They weren't 8-8 in '06, they were 10-6 and lost in the first round. The thing you should take from the Jets model is that they have a staff with a philosophy and the patience to implement it. This year seems great, but if anything the foundation was laid last year when they refused to pay Pete Kendall and went with a total stiff (Adrien Clarke) in his place. The were way under the cap and restructured a bunch of guys so they could spend like crazy this off-season. That's the main reason they took their lumps in '07. There seems to be a good foundation, but if Favre runs off next year and Faneca, Jenkins and Woody drop off where are they? They's probably be fine because they are in good control of the cap and will be able to sign decent replacements.

    BTW, flawless? On the Jets boards they are quite literally screaming to fire the co-ordinators because they allowed the comeback.
