    That is not a good thing. The Jets are averaging a point more per game, but have had an extra game to play to change the average. The Jets O has also been set up to start in the RZ twice, while the Dolphins O has not.

    I agree here with you

    How is throwing a route past the first down on a 3rd and 2 playing conservative... I would assume tebow diving over the middle would be conservative and sparano like

    Also why is it sparano is known for his predictable slant routes... I know the Jets have used them a ton and sanchez likes to throw them but sparano never had the WRs running slants in miami, wasn't that something we always asked for?

    Sparano ball is evident in NY, I'm just not sure it applies so much in this situation

    (On Miami sports teams being popular)

    You heard it here first. When your team gets completely shut out against a competent defense, that's a clear sign that you have a kick ass offense based on the fact that you are still putting up a thrilling 18.7 points per game.

    I mean, the fact that you played the putrid defenses of the Colts and the league worst Bills (who just had their two worst defensive performances in franchise history in the span of three weeks) is just irrelevant tripe brought up by jealous, deluded Dolphins homers.

    Ice up, Leodis.

    we are averaging 19.7 PPG.

    lets' take out Jet & Dolphin games from their opponent and see what our O's are doing against those D's average points allowed per game.

    NY Jets
    Buffalo: allow average of 29.8 PPG, Jets scored 34. +4
    Pitt: 23.2, Jets scored 10. -13
    Miami: 18.8, Jets scored 23. +4
    SF: 15.5, we scored 0. -16
    Hou: 19.8, we scored 10. -10
    Ind: 24.6, we scored 35. +10
    NE: 22.8, we scored 26. +3
    3 negative games, 4 positive games

    Miami Dolphins:
    Hou: 19.8, Miami scored 3. -17
    Oak: 24.4, Mia scored 35. +11
    NYJ: 23.8, Mia scored 20. -4
    Ari: 14.6, Mia scored 21. +6
    Cin: 24.8, Mia scored 17. -8
    SL: 18.3, Mia scored 17. -1
    4 negative games, 2 positive

    This is ridiculous, but I will bite. The Jets O is averaging 18.7 PPG, not 19.7. The Jets O did not score 23 against the Dolphins. Landry returned an Int for a TD in that game. Thomas also fumbled which gave the Jets a FG, but we will give them those points anyway. That means you need to take away a positive and put it in the negative column. 4 negatives and 3 positives for the Jets with 1 more game played. If you add up the totals, the Jets are -41 in those games they scored less in and only +17 in the games they scored more in. The Dolphins are -30 in the games they scored less than, and the same +17 as the Jets in games they scored more in. This includes an extra game for the Jets which adds to the stats.

    I'm so happy the Jets are stuck with that sawed off goon.
    Please God, let me see 1 Dolphins Superbowl victory before I die.

I'm not sure but it was a bad call.
    Sounds really similar to the Parcells/Ireland decision situation we had this past offseason. In all honesty i would have to go with Rex deciding which direction to take that drive. I honestly don't think Tony called that bad of a game, he had the one play where Curley ran a sluggo on third and short which caught the patriots with their pants down, but the pats db held curley and Sanchez overthrew him. Some of his goaline calls were questionable (like that slant when you have tebow available). In the end though you had them right where you wanted them with your defense just having to make a stop and the game was yours, so i actually have to blame this one on Rex. I was rooting for the Jets because i wanted the game this week to be for sole possession of first place, but the Patriots still have a little left in them.
