Buzz: Jets expected to show interest in Vick

We took some heat for our post about Mike Vick and the Jets yesterday, but according to one insider there could well be a link between the two:

When we polled more than 2,600 Jets fans 14 months ago about the possibility of signing Vick, over three quarters of you said you would not be happy with the move (or worse) and a higher percentage of fans suggested they would stop being a Jets fan than the percentage that would be fully on-board with such a signing.

The 33-year old Vick started six games for the Eagles last year, throwing five touchdown passes and three interceptions. He also fumbled four times, but posted an 86.5 quarterback rating.

I will discard of every Jets item I possess if Vick becomes a Jet.  As Rex would say "no question".

The last thing we need is a dog killing no talent old crippled QB if that what u want. Than be prepared for a lot of very pissed off fans . And then our stadium will look like all 3 Florida stadiums empty and blacked out games

I'd rather not have a psychopath that tortures and kills pitbulls on the Jets. But that's just me. Call me crazy.

Why, Vick should have been banned long ago. And if they needed a QB then they should have used Tebow the right way instead of destroying his career

No. Even if you ignore his canine offenses, he's no longer an effective NFL QB.

anybody like idea of trading for Kirk Cousins

Smith-Cousins battling to be starter with Simms as 3rd string

very solid

I would prefer Kirk Cousins but the draft pick he would cost is probably too high.

Vick would be an excellent backup. But to earn a starting spot over Geno, even if sitting can help Geno, I feel Vick wont come to us knowing its a long shot for him to be a starter. I can see him on the texans since they should get Clowney #1 and get a qb at the top of the 2nd. Which then gives a better incentive for Vick to start the year on a well stacked team. This seems more likely.

Yes bring him in not to start but to help geno become a more developed running qb as you saw the last couple of games when geno ran our offense was more productive

Has anyone seen any actually productive, interesting FB comments?  Someone please explain to me why something with such a low signal-to-noise ratio needs to be enabled?

I think its silly that people are saying they wont be a Jets fan ever again if they sign him.

Thank you SNY, 6,000 comments all saying "No" are definitely making the site better!

It's staggering to me the amount of FB commenters who have no concept of cutting the cord with the old front office regime. FB comments are the literal worst.

Assuming it is a reasonable contract this isn't the worst idea.  Given the assets the Jets will [obviously hopefully] have with the cap space and draft picks they have, this team should be much more balanced than 2013.  We need a better option than David Garrard and Matt Simms if Geno has another stink fest that spans multiple games.

Vick has been playing in Philly, which while not New York, isn't some yocal market like Buffalo or St. Louis.  He'll handle the questions fine.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan  If they are just deleting them why bother to have them at all. And No I havent seen much interesting from them.

Some of the quality contributions brought on by the FB comments: FB tags that come off as incoherent shout-outs on a non-FB based board. Huzzah!

@Brendan  I'm sure it's to show the advertisors how active this site is and how much traffic has increased.  It's not at all about making the site better.

@Brendan  Its kinda funny though, its all because of the dogs. Only like two of them mentioned his QB play.

@johnnyl65  Don't worry, Andrew will come soon and give us his scripted "thanks, but we don't care about you" responses.

@Brendan @Arthur  I don't know what that means, but Tebow is a bigger scam than the carpet sweeper.

@jake100 As much as we disagree on matters, I dont doubt your passion for the game or your team so I cant understand this.

@Brendan @Arthur  I'm glad too.  Haven't commented on TJB in a while.  These FB messages are friggan terrible.

@Arthur Ah, okay. There was a guy who posted here named Arthur who was the biggest Tebow supporter on the internet, glad to see you aren't him.
