SPYGAMES: Wade Phillips’ reasoning for starting Rob Johnson over Doug Flutie is stupid

KEEPING AN EYE ON THE ENEMIES OF THE JETS

Hello Jets Faithful

It seems like a lot of Jets fanatics try to not only keep up with their beloved Jets, but also try to keep an eye on what the loathed division enemies are doing, We decided to occasionally check out what’s going on across the borders.

Here’s a blog post to keep you informed on what the other teams in our division are up to

Wade Phillips’ reasoning for starting Rob Johnson over Doug Flutie is stupid

He tries to rationalize this??? Really?

In 1998, the Buffalo Bills went 10-6 and made the playoffs in Wade Phillips’ first year as head coach after taking over for the retired Marv Levy. In his new book, Son of Bum, he explains how one of the largest quarterback controversies in NFL history began and how a year later, the quarterback controversy reignited prior to the 1999 Wild Card.

Part of the reason I thought we lost in ’97 [when I was defensive coordinator] was because we didn’t have a quarterback. So one of the first things I said after taking the job was, “We’ve got to get a quarterback.”

First, we signed Doug Flutie, who after an unsuccessful start to his career in the NFL went on to become the greatest player in the history of the Canadian Football League. I didn’t know that much about Doug, other than the fact he was only five-foot-ten and that he had originally come into the NFL after winning the Heisman Trophy and making a miracle Hail Mary pass that allowed Boston College to upset the University of Miami.

We also traded first- and fourth-round draft picks to the “>

There are tons of great Jets sites in the world that every now and then I have to post some of the bits that I stumble on.

Plenty of News From Day One of Jets OTA’s

The Jets got their organized team activities going yesterday for 2017, and there was plenty of news. Devin Smith made it onto injured reserve. The coordinators talked. So did Sheldon Richardson. On today’s podcast, we do our best to break it down.

There were a few interesting nuggets from offensive coordinator John Morton. Defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers talked about how the Jets plan on using Richardson this year that are encouraging. It seems like the team is going to focus on using Richardson in a way that better utilizes his ability. Of course, Richardson couldn’t wait to create an unnecessary distraction and throw stones from his glass house. I’m a little frustrated with this silliness, and I express that on the show.

EYE ON THE ENEMY: Brady’s Kryptonite & The Worlds Strongest Men

KEEPING A WATCHFUL EYE ON THE RIVALS OF THE NEW YORK JETS

Hey New York Jets Fanatics

Since most Jets faithful like to not only keep up with their favorite team the Jets, but also like to keep an eye on what the despised enemies are up to, We decided to periodically check out what’s happening in the enemy base.

Here’s a link to keep you filled in on what the other teams in our division are up to

Brady’s Kryptonite & The Worlds Strongest Men

As with all things in life Brady’s career has been a metaphor for all of us; our scrappy beginnings, our rising arc, our peak and our inevitable decline into the grave. In the same way we hate to think about death we hate to think about Brady hanging up 12 for good. Alas, it’s not a matter of IF but WHEN.
The good news is that the WHEN is what our original gansta Big Baller Boss (eat it LaVar!) Bill Belichick CAN relatively control. Brady has the will, the passion, and the MJ intensity to play until he’s literally dead. He’s eating his avocados, turning his muscle to rubber bands, sleeping in his Under Armor Thneeds; in short Brady’s taking care of 100% of what he can control.
Coach Belichick on the other hand has done his best addressing the window dressing (i.e. specialized talent in WRs, TEs, and RBs) of extending Brady “football life” (meaning a solid top three league QB and not the monolithic QB corpse ala’ Manning 2015). Coach has not however acutely addressed Brady’s “football kryptonite”. The ONLY thing that not only ruins Brady’s epic game stats and gets the offense off the field before the defense finished their Gatorade but also is the only thing that will usher in Brady’s Father Time too soon for him (and therefore for all of us Pats Patsies): INTERIOR LINE PRESSURE. Brady is a master of subtlety stepping up and deftly avoiding the arcing DE pash rush but interior pressure is THE only thing that renders Brady completely mediocre and reminds all of us that he is human after all.
