    “The Jets feel confident they can get their running game on track this week.”

    I have a suggestion: Let’s save time, and talk about the things the Jets are not confident about.

    Come on Sparano. In between the 20’s he showed good improvement.

    In the red zone he was no more effective than last year which may be the biggest reason your a.. was in a sling last year and this.

    uh, Spagnolo

    “Gamer” duh

    You keep Pettis on the inactive list the first two games. You replace him with a guy who can’t catch the ball.

    You activate him and he immediately comes through on 3rd down time after time. He looks like a pro.

    Titus Young catches 12 balls in 3 games.

    Eventually, someone is going to figure this out.

    Trade Pettis to the Browns. NOW!

    Please.
