Maybe Newsday could do us fans a favor and not write about the Jets again until after the season --- help us kind of put it in the past early.

Memo to Woody Johnson:
At season's end, fire Mangini, Tannenbaum, and the entire. coaching staff. SOMEBODY HAS TO BETTER THEN THESE BUMS!
Also, get football players who know how to pass, catch, block, and tackle. This team needs a major overhaul, and you can do it.

Yesterday was typical: Control the game, then fold in the 2nd half. They can't tackle, they drop passes at the worst time, 1 awful turnover at the worst time, and they get scared to try to win the game at the end of regulation and save a Timeout..

They deserve to lose and they did.

Too much negative thought here. Wake up Jets fans, we now have a QB, who can throw, but we just have to allow the rest of the team to catch up to Clemmens. How many good receivers dropped passes yesterday? How many times did they stop running a pattern, because they are so used to short, under thrown pass routes? Let's give the team a chance to adjust, and develop some chemistry. The team was moving well, and if some of those passes were caught, the other team would not have been able to play the running game. It is not time to pound the Jets, with giving up, or blaming the GM and coach. It is time to give them a chance to get out of the Chad short, floating passing game, and develop into a real NFL quality QBd team, under Clemmens. The Jets will be fine, and remember the offense needs time to adjust. They have not even had enough time to practice together, so let's give it to them. What we are looking for here, is the future, and it looks good. Clemmens showed signs of being a top QB, and Harris is just taking over the D. Remember, this team is in transition, and the GM and coach are doing a good job in building the future. The last two drafts, have produced solid NFL players, but you can not expect an entire team change over, in one year. Patience.
Let's go JETS!!!

I know I'm dreaming bot all sports should be performance based
You drop a pass your salary falls
simple as that
Clemes played well
receivers let everyone down

I actually agree with Larry. Not taking away the blame from professional receivers, but they are not used to catching passes with any zip on them. Its just like receivers getting used to catching passes from a lefty or catching passes from a young Brett Favre it takes practice.

you should recognize the what-have-you-done-lately fans by now, no vision, no anlaysis. The same personal was great last year but are bums that need to be replaced this year. A few plays a game (plays that were made last year) and there are 4 more wins. Yesterday, if Coles is healthy Brad Smith is not seeing the ball with the game on the line near the end zone. whatever pick the Jets end up with needs to be a 3-4 LB. They still look small against other teams lines and Sutton needs to be replaced. Defense held Skins to 5 FG's but 300 yds rushing allowed means Jets offense was hardly on the field.

The Jets are a total embarraassment. They have no tradition (last won a championship in 1969), no stadium and no hope. Kellen Clemens is now the saviour. So were Richard Todd, Al Woodall, Mike Taliferro, Ken O'Brien, Browning Nagle, Brooks Bollinger and Pat Ryan and Chad Pennington. Even Weeb Eubank had a losing record with the Jets. Yet their fans keep paying $$$ to watch them. Woody Johnson laughs all the way to bank. He has no worries the fans keep paying and he's not accountable. Life couldn't be better for Mr. Johnson. Can you say that Jet fans?

ok the jets lost.again. watever its the same story evryweek that they cant play the second half. but the jets had some rythem on offense. if cotchery didnt fumble and leon didnt drop a pass, cotchery didnt drop that pass at the end, and if brad smith didnt drop two more passes the jets could have definetly won. the d played ok holding them to field goals but w/e. im looking at the future. clemens is a great quarterback who can move around the pocket and make throws chad couldnt so we got the qb of the future. david harris is a beast with 20 tackles and i hope we will keep vilma so we will have 2 great linebackers. if the jets had coles also they could have won. i would liek to c the jets win but the future would be even brighter with good picks in the draft. the jets need both a d lineman and a o lineman in the draft

I used to live on LI and was disgusted by the weak-minded opinions of many on Herm Edwards. The treament (racial) of Edwards was so off-base. So now you have Mangini - the boy wonder, the golden white boy (boy does he make you wonder)- who had Pennington (who was often hurt during Herms' tenure)- which equals 1-7. HA!!! Just like the TampaBucs (Dungy), Minnesota Vikings (Green)- the Jets will suck the same. And I will continue to root against the slimy Jets (same as Tampa & Minnesota) for their management and ignorant white fans treament of African American coaches. Herm would not be 1-7 right now with the same team. May the Jets contnue to Lose (season after season) HA!!!

It wouldn't matter if Clemens, Pennington or Joe Namath was the QB, with a defense that cannot tackle we are not going to win.
The only way we stop third downs are if the other team drops the ball. This is pathetic.
It is about time for Mangini to give up his stubborness and go to the 4-3 which is the defense that we are suited to play until he can either draft or through free agency get the players to fit the plan. A great coach always plays to the players they have and not to an ideology. Keep in mind we are not the Patriots.
Larry G,
I have been patient now for 38 years frankly I'm getting a little tired of waiting. I was 11 years old when they won the superbowl, I am going to be 50, so I figured I've waited long enough.

We may be 1 and 8 but don't let the record fool you, were actually much worse than that! ha you chuckle, how can you be much worse than 1 and 8? Well I'll tell you- when your 1 and 8 in the fifth year of a five year rebuilding program! I remember a few years back we got a new coach people spoke of as fresh and exciting, a new quaterback people dared to compare to Joe Montana and a new direction and plan. Now after several years, several injuries, a coaching change, and some false hope, here we are at 1 and 8. Its a sad, sad place to be.

I agree with you, Herm would never be 1-7 he is a much better coach just like Dungy is far better than Gruden.

You must be in Fantasy land!!! Pennington had much better numbers in his loss against Cincy. You can continue and keep dreaming but Clemens is no better than a good back up. Lets see what he does in his next game, I'm sure if he looks bad and the JETS lose it wont be his fault but Coaching or the 3-4 defense.
