    OK. I didn't think this was necessary but I'll spell it out. Let's also look at the dates.

    JETS

    Week 1 @ Miami _ W 20 - 14 (first game following a 1-15 season)
    Week 2 New England (without Brady) _ L 10 - 19
    Week 3 @ San Diego _ L 29 - 48
    Week 4 Arizona _ W 56 - 35 (Cardinals suck on the road)
    Week 6 Cincinnati _ W 26 - 14 (they're a 1-8 team)
    Week 7 @ Oakland _ L 13 - 16 CHOKE!!!
    Week 8 Kansas City _ W 28 - 24 (they're a 1-8 team)
    Week 9 @ Buffalo _ W 26 - 17 (impressive, they're getting better)
    Week 10 St. Louis _ W 47 - 3 (they're a 2-7 team)

    6-3 but look at their opponents.


    PATRIOTS

    Week 1 Kansas City _ W 17-10 (they're a 1-8 team)
    Week 2 @ NY Jets _ W 19-10
    Week 3 Miami _ L 38-13 (embarassed in their house)
    Week 5 @ San Francisco _ W 30-21 (they're a 2-7 team)
    Week 6 @ San Diego _ L 30-10
    Week 7 Denver _ W 41-7 (got em' at Cutler's melt down)
    Week 8 St. Louis _ W 23-16 (they're a 2-7 team)
    Week 9 @ Indianapolis _ L 18-15 (HUGE opportunity missed)
    Week 10 Buffalo _ W 20-10 (Buffalo appears to be hitting a melt down)

    6-3 but not exactly impressive.
    Then there's the element of time... Jets got the Dolphins before they were good, Patriots got the Donkos at their melt down stage, etc.

    BOTTOM LINE... Neither team is that good.
    Slamming both teams at home and playing like sh!t in the other 7 games is NOT impressive!!!

    No one said they were impressive. You said the Pats and Jets were finished. Honestly, do you even follow the NFL. Both teams are winning, slim margins or thick ones, pretty or ugly. Neither are done and I stand by my original prediction - Jets in AFCCG.

    I said "the Patsies are pretty much done."
    That means they are no longer the team to beat. If they make the Playoffs, they'll squeek their way in and probably won't go far.
    ei: If we blew out the Patriots team of last season, that would be impressive. This team is NOT that team.

    I also said "the Jets suck" because they do.
    6-3 but against the Rams, Chiefs, Bengals, Raiders, etc. is not convincing. If they make the playoffs, I'll be really surprised if they get past the first round.
    ei: The Football Gods have a new lap dog.

    You ask me if I follow NFL... well I didn't realize I'd have to spell it ALL out for you guys. You should know this!!! :yes:
    A true football fan looks beyond the W-L record.

    As you said "they're not impressive."
    Well what does that make those Prime Time victories?

    If you looked back at some of the other posts in here, I mentioned that the title was kind of misleading. I want him to shape up, not ship out.
    Stop looking for puppet coaches!
    Let the HC do his job!
    Concentrate on the draft and free agency ONLY!

    AJ did all he could to force Marty out of here the he brought in the worst HC and DC in NFL history.
    People can rant all they want about making it to the AFCC last season and predicting that with Marty, we would have lost the first round in the playoffs but there is no way to prove that!!!

    We are slowly regressing to one of the worst teams in the league. We're the underdog in just about all of our remaining games. Except possibly Denver.
    ALL of our division rivals suck but unfortunately, so do we. But because the Donkos suck, we might be able to squeek our way into the playoffs.

    Unless I see a much improved team in the last 7 games, I'm looking forward more to next season.

    What purpose does this thread serve?

    The decision was made 2 years ago.

    Move on, man.

    Let's call for Norv's head in the offseason if things don't go to plan.

    I think AJ has done enough to warrant a mistake or two, so there's no point in calling for his head because Dean Spanos didn't hire Singletary two years ago.

    And, I feel the need to add Mike Singletary is 0-2 in his young coaching career.

    Again...
    Look at who he's coaching and ask yourself these questions.
    Are the 9ers an elite team?
    Are they a playoff bound team?
    Is their talent level any where near ours?

    Some of you also talk like Singletary has as much coaching experience as Norv. The 9ers suck and have sucked for years. Singletary is whipping them into shape for next season and seasons to come. He WILL have them in the playoffs and maybe even in the Super Bowl in a short amount of time.

    BOTTOM LINE... Norv is a proven loser and Singltary shows potential to be an elite coach!!!

    He might not have elite talent, but do you really think the seahawks have elite talent? They went there with no QB, no WRs a banged up defense and Julius Jones as their RB and the hawks ran away with the game

    Also, in the ARI game, the deciding factor wasnt players, it came down to horrible clock management and not being ready when it came down to the end of the game

    I know that but you left out this sentence... "Some of you also talk like Singletary has as much coaching experience as Norv."

    Also, Norv is proven to where Singletary is potential.
    Norv drove Joe Gibbs team into the ground.
    Now he's driving Marty's team into the ground.

    Hold onto the AFCC appearance as tightly as possible but I want a Super Bowl title. If an AFCC appearance keeps you satisfied with this era, good for you but most people would disagree.

    Norv = Dean Spanos

    Cotrell = AJ Smith

    You never let this concept stop you from blaming Norv for his failures in Oakland.

    Well, I take that back, you did in one post, but then you contradicted yourself later on throughout the thread.

    Here we go again. Round and round.

    As I've said a trillion times... Only Dean can hire and fire people BUT the decisions are up to AJ.
    Yes, Dean fired Marty but AJ push for it since day one.

    WOW!!! You miss points like the Padres bats miss pitches!!!

    But this should be easy to understand...
    How many games did Norv coach (as HC) before the Raiders hired him?
    How many games has Singletary coached in his life (as HC)?

    And here we go again with you telling me that an employee tells his employer what to do.

    Oh how I wish that was how it worked at my job.

    I haven't missed any points whatsoever.

    I'd actually love to see Singletary as the Chargers HC. (He was my choice after viewing all the interviews after Marty was fired)

    I'm just calling you out for the hypocrite you're being.
