We ll the finz were up, but then they let me down... again
If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich. -- John F. Kennedy, January 20, 1961
You think 3 years is fair to judge a QB? Peyton didn't win a playoff game until his 6th season. buttfumble may never win a SB but he's been close twice and in both title games he wasn't the reason we lost. As long as the parts around him are good he can win a SB.
After 3 seasons:
buttfumble: 782-1414 yds, 9209 yds, 55.3 %, 55 TDs, 51 INTs, 27-20 record in reg season, 4-2 in postseason 2 title game apps
Eli: 690-1276, 8049 yds, , 54%, 54 TDs, 44 INTs, 20-19 record in reg season, 0-2 in postseason(including being shut out at HOME)
heck even a year later when they won the SB Eli threw 23 TDs and 20 INTs, was a 56% passer but b/c buttfumble had 3 abd games to end 2011 his career is over.
Didn't you hear/ they brought in Tim tebow to start. All teams want their starters to bulk up to 250 lbs and be the upman on punts.
Lol @ buttfumble not throwing a TD. "Friggan" FGs won the Patriots a few SBs.they barely eeked by the colts in 2010. buttfumble didnt even throw a td in that game. a friggan field goal won it. and last year they didnt make it. the d is good thats for sure, but the offense has not really lived up to the names on paper.
He's lost a lot of weight and even though he's a Jet he still deserves his props. Come on, guys, you can't hate on that.
SD missed the first easy field goal (37 yards) on their second possession of the game. No one scored until SD scored a TD in the second quarter. It would have been 10-0 SD. The Jets don't score until the 3rd making it 7-3 SD. Right at the end of the 3rd SD turns it over out of their own endzone. That gave the ball to the Jets on the SD 15 which led to the Jets first TD of the game. You don't think SD plays that series a little different if it is 10-3? Especially considering that the Jets only managed to score just 3 points in 3 quarters? Even if it played out the same, it would have been 10-10 had SD made the first field goal. The Jets next score is at the 7:17 mark in the 4th making the score 17-7 (17-10 with the field goal). On SD next possession they drive into field goal range, and what do you know, another missed field goal. It would have been 17-13 with the 2 easy FGs. The Jets tried to run out the clock, but could not. SD gets the ball back and scores what could have been the game winner. Let me guess, SD never would have scored that TD because the Jets wouldn't have gone into prevent. Isn't a prevent defense supposed to stop big plays? Why was SD able to gain 11 yards, 37 yards, and 19 yards in their first 3 plays of that last series?
That scenario doesn't even include the 57 yard miss. You can call that 57 yard attempt a prayer, but he has made a 57 yard FG before and kicked a 54 yard FG with plenty of room to spare just a couple of weeks before the playoffs. Had he made those FGs, I think it is safer to say the outcome changes than saying the Jets still win regardless.
