I know it's only a preseason game, but I think that it would be a bad look to lose to the Jets. They are a circus. Their anemic offense vs. our high octane, super talented, up and coming offensive juggernaut...please! Against their decidedly porous O-line, CJ, Hardy and the boys should feast. Kuechly and company will stop whatever QB dares to cross the line. Moreover, Santonio Holmes is their only real threat at WR, and I am looking for Norman to back up that swag by shutting not only Holmes down, but also by snatching one of those wounded The Golden Calf of Bristol ducks out of the air for a pick 6.

A suggestion for a Times headline Monday morning: The Jets Have Landed!

"Team Game vs. Team Lame!" That's how I see it. We need to crush these guys in their house. Anything else is almost embarrassing. That's my mindset. I'm not trying to be a homer, overly optimistic or anything. We should roll them up. What say you?

Yes I agree that this will be a good test for our offense, especially without Smith. We should get a very good look at what we have in WR Murphy, in addition to good looks at our other WR's.

I think this board will have a mini breakdown on Monday. I don't think people at the moment realize how good the Jets D is....how Smitty impacts our first team O, and the fact Chud/Rivera have limited what Cam does in the preseason vs regular season for the 2nd year in a row.....what all that equals is a letdown for those thinking we go embarrass the Jets in NY.

Also, our O went against a joke D last week and NY faced probably the worst matchup there OL could of seen last week.....that distorts things to a degree.

Frankly I dont really care what happens. Even when the Jets went to two AFC championships in a row, they were not that good of a team. Shonn Greene is a duck, Sanchez and The Golden Calf of Bristol are both inept, all the studs Ryan brought in from the Ravens are just wearing out. I really feel like the Jets and Miami are gonna be in a race for last place in the AFC East.

If we crush them, it's not going to put the league on notice about us, it will just re affirm how horrible the Jets are. If we leave this game with no injuries then it's a victory for us. If we are dominating them in the first quarter like we did to miami, just pull the starters. we should get those guys on the cut bubble sorted out.

Injured toe. No explanation given but an infection. Maybe Rex was sucking on Smitty's toe.

As long as Monday comes and we didn't look aweful and have a ton of injuries.

This game means NOTHING. Won't help us get to the playoffs.

While I would love to see the offense score on every possession. Defense shut them down. In the long run we aren't going to show our offense and probably won't show much of our defense.

Go Panthers

I think you underestimating our O. Smith not being there hurts absolutely, but we have weapons

With that being said, there's no need to a have any type of breakdown over a preseason game unless we flat out just look terrible. Just remember defenses get tired, so if the offense not helping them they will get tired

I wonder how many points we can score before halftime, and still win the game. Would like to see Cam come out by the middle of the 2nd quarter.

sounds like you might be the first one to post about the season being over. we should kill them, but their D is still great, and at the same time we are showing nothing on offense. I would not be surprised if their QBs light us up just because that's the way things happen. No Smith will really hurt.

Smith being out is a good thing methinks. We have the rest of the receiving corps that needs to be sorted out. If any of our latter guys are able to get separation on cromartie or revis they probably deserve a spot on the team.

I'm not understand what you're trying to say? We're going to get our asses handed to us Sunday?

No such thing as a preseason statement game.

With that kind of expectation, you will only be disappointed.

This, being the third preseason game, which the starters play the longest, is the most exciting of the preseason games.

it is the most exciting but it is still pointless.
coaches arent calling plays to win the game, they are looking at very specific things out of specific players that we really cant see when watching.

even if we get whooped but say the game fully solidifies who we are playing at certain positions (cb #2, the whole WR mess, mclain's backup, etc) then it's a victory in the coaches eyes.
