Garcia ? Another QB who has taken too many hits, the guy can certainly gut it out but for how much longer ?

As a long suffering Jet fan ( ticket holder ) ..are there any other kind..I have to say in he beinning of the season it was actually fun to go to the games and know you had a chance to win...and he was fun to watch and root for..the end though was simply awful...so now we need a new qb..not the current #2 #3 and #4 guys, and someon to throw the ball to...( Coles doesn't cut it ) ...then maybe they'll be fun to watch...the teams they play this season are no push-overs... without a qb and a wideout..it could be a long one...

Who writes your poll questions?

Here's my suggested new poll:

Q1: Turn the job over to...
A. Clemens
B. Ratliff
C. Ainge
D. A rookie draft pick
E. A free agent

Unless I'm missing something not named Brad Smith, those are the options.

ok... I guess trading for Cassel is in the realm of possibility. But so is me winning a million bucks.

It's fashionable to trash Brett now, but he QB'd three tough mid-season road wins at Pats, Bills and Titans.

With that limited play book, because of his late signing, defenses eventually caught up to what the Jets liked to do on offense

Great move! By also cutting DB Barett they are now $17 mill under the cap.
Just don't waste it on Ray Lewis...
