    Vick to start against KC

    Announced at the presser. Rex must still have some say, as this is a move that will really help few but him.

    One has to wonder, short of the literal deaths of Smith and Vick, what it will take to get Simms a week with the 1's in practice and a start that Sunday. I am guessing Simms will remain on the PS despite the utter debacle that was our QB position yesterday.

    If I were BB (or the Bills) and still even cared a whit what the Jets do, I'd snatch Simms off our PS, just to tweak Rex and Idzik.

    I don't mean to sound facetious , but I just can't see any team in contention , reaching out to take any player not good enough to make this Jet roster!

    They sound organized RT @DWAZ73: Harvin says he found out this morning - yes, really - from the coaches that Vick would be starting. #Jets

    I was the one being facetious! Doing something like that would be vindictive, spiteful...and right in character for Belichek.

    With the word that Geno didn't throw at all at practive due to his sore shoulder, one has to wonder why they're waiting to add Simms to the 53 and get him some reps in case Vick gets hurt. If there was ever a golden opportunity to see what the kid can do, this is it. Have to think there's someone on the 53 man roster of this 1-7 juggernaut we can risk passing through waivers to make room for Matt.

    Don't understand why people want Simms. Simms was atrocious against San Diego last year. I've seen enough of him to know he's definitely not a long term answer. Maybe as a backup, but definitely NOT starter quality.

    My thinking is Smith should not be starting. Vick is in no way a long term solution and now that the season is a total loss why waste any snaps on him.

     I agree I do not believe Simms will ever be a starter but I have not seen enough of him yet to know if he is a long term answer as a 2nd or 3rd string QB so I want to see more of him before we have to set our roster next season.

    One of the coaches, can't recall if it was Lee or Mornhinweg, was raving about him in TC. I dunno, something different? Just tired of seeing Vick and Smith go out there and screw up. He's probably not the answer, but might as well find out for sure. Plus, at this point, isn't losing a good thing?

    This is going to be ugly.......Aboushi led OL last week in allowing QB hurries/hits........and that in turn is compromising Brick on that side. Ugly. It's one thing to be a backup, but the Jets have had woefully bad OL depth for years now.........unacceptable.
