I know you are trying to create a QB controversy but I just don't see it. There was no controversy in Philly last year when Foles took the starting job. In fact It has been reported that Vick was a good locker room guy and mentor to Foles.

But you are right that the Jets don't know how to cultivate a QB.

The Jets wanted Vick, be careful for what you wish for men. Vick is already raising hell!

Ghost just wants to say: he is very disappointed in himself for NOT realizing about 5 years earlier that darelle revis is a dead ringer for Teddy Pendergrass

I like Breno:


"There, they asked the right tackle what he wanted to wash his chicken parmesan down with. He said a six-pack of Bud Light.

He and his dining companions talked about their families and hunting as Giacomini easily drained the half-dozen bottles. "It was my first time meeting the coaches, so I didn't want to ask for a 30-rack right away," he said."

What the hell is it. Do the Jets only employ anxiety-ridden basket cases for QBs? For years the coaches have been calling Sanchez and now Geno mentally tough but in reality they tiptoe around with their comments so as not to shatter their egos. Want to see who is mentally tough? Just say the best dude plays and then cut the ones who are weeping.

I was just reading the Pryor article and was thinking about a bunch of posts here saying Rookie DPOY for 2nd straight year.  The last safety to win rookie DPOY was Mark Carrier in 1990. The winner seems to basically be a linebacker with a DL sprinkled in here and there.  It doesn't seem like Safety typically generates the stats required.  Just throwing out that observation and not trying to be negative about the Pryor pick. It was a very safe pick. No pun intended.

Boy, some of you guys seen the Cimini story within one minute of Rich posting it! I guess Rich does have a nice following, you even beat me to the punch, lol

In all seriousness, with Vick saying that there is no competition, that Geno is the starter, and defying the Idzik mantra of competition, I wonder if this will land Vick in the dog house, no pun intended, lol

Be prepared for Joey to bombard us with excerpts of Cimini's latest article.

oh wait

There won't be another Jack Tatum - different era and different rules


BUT....


If Earl Thomas and Bob Sanders had a baby and you added about 3 inches in height you'd end up with Calvin Pryor

@BDarc23 of course generally the winners will be mostle pass rushers who generate stats.  Clowney would be by far the preseason favorite.

@BDarc23 

Using my forecasting model against his college performance, this years strength of schedule, and a myriad of other factors, I'm seeing a low ball figure of 15 interceptions with a ceiling topping out at 34 interceptions.  This guy is going to be insane if the mathematical models are accurate.

@BDarc23 I think its because they can have more of an immediate impact on the team. The safety has a lot to learn before he will be a major factor. But hey if Pryor generates turnovers ya never know.

@BDarc23 So, clearly, what you're saying is that Ikemefuna Enemkpali is going to be the DROY.

@jake100 I'd call you the Flavor Flav to Rich Cimini's Chuck D, but that would be incredibly insulting to Flavor Flav and Chuck D.

Having players and coaches that know how to handle the media is a good thing and not creating stories where none exist.

@jake100 I suspect Idzik pre-approved the statement and may even have written it.  Not too many loose lips in Jets camp these days.

@williamg1 At this point, I think Rich is writing them with Joey specifically in mind, and Joey wakes up every day with baited breath to see what juicy nightcrawlers of wisdom his beloved Rich is going to tenderly drop into his beak.

@bradysucks @jake100 At least Sanchez could stay on the field and got to two afc playoff games, Vick hasn't played a full season in YEARS and is a washed up bum now!

Are you nuts. What was Earl Thomas drafted, 2nd overall or something. Don't get me wrong, I'm on boerd w/Calvin, but give the man a chance, Earl Thomas is a big time player, probably, if not defintly the best all around Safiety in the NFL

@jaygo @jake100 

The real controversy is the fact we've got very little talent at the QB position.  Geno stinks until I say otherwise.  Vick is old and one hit from IR.  Simms is a QB4 at best.  Geno versus Vick is like arguing whether you should poop or pee first.  Nobody wins.

@jaygo @jake100 I cant see that, idzik is too professional and reiterated his ALL competition mantra a million times, it would make Idzik look like a fool. Regardless, it is not making the Jets look good with this qb situation already, wait until the real fireworks start!

@Disgruntled Jets Fan @williamg1 I had assumed williamg1 made this comment because Cimini just published a new article but on reflection it was perhaps just some general life advice.

Yeah Joeyboy....They ruined Sanchez with 50 million dollars and by giving him endless opportunities to prove he could protect the football.....management is also responsible for the buttfumble (a conspiracy few people are aware of)

Guys,guys, if Vick is washed up, it'll show  on the field and Geno's development will not be sidetracked  for any brief interruption by Vick.

@bobbyj Earl Thomas was drafted 14th in 2010...only five spots higher than Pryor in a draft that was not regarded as being as strong as this one was.

@Hanknaples I read his book when I was young. "They call me assassin" I dont remember much of it but it did inspire me back then.

@jake100 @williamg1 @jaygo You guys just don't want to see that Vick has been told to talk like he's the back-up because he is the back-up.  Undermining the boss would be screaming how he's gonna kick Geno's arse and start.

(It was because Cimini entitled his article Vick comments on QB race).

It is funny how this is getting sillier and sillier. The Jets are so scared of creating any semblance of a controversy that they are all over the place and contradicting each other. They are creating the controversy by all the inconsistency's. That is the ironic part. Boy it is going to be one heck of a camp, lol

@Ceifus Hornswoggle @Bent @Disgruntled Jets Fan @williamg1 Maybe I missed something. Please explain who's playing the race card? What did Vick say?
