    hypothetically speaking

    if the fins are able to beat buffalo and detroit and bring their record up to 9-6 and the Yets lose to pittsburgh and chicago and both teams then become 9-6 and you were coach belichick would you rest all of the starters and allow the fins to delibrately win just to seal the jets out of the playoffs (and hope that the bills win)? all  of this assuming we are 13-2 and have secured a first round bye.

    personally I would love to see the Jets miss the playoffs. I passed on BB post game presser in favor of watching FatRex. he has stopped with the Superbowl talk. I would just love to see his face when/if they get eliminated from post season..  But I'm not the coach of the NEP's, and the actual coach of the NEP's is about WINNING and onlt winning. In his presser someone asked him about that and he said that the Patriots would continue to play every game, and at the end of the season someone would tell them what was next.. or something like that..

    Brady is on NFL record home winning streak. He will not lose to Dolphins at home no matter what. If SD or Indy win out, they will eliminate the Jets. if Jets happens to lose 2 out of 3.

    I think we rest the starters some against the fins anyway. I want to see the depth get some reps the next few weeks.

    Jets:
    Total Salary: $117,455,934
    Potential Dead Money: $17,968,733
    Total Cap Charge: $135,424,667
    existing in 2009 was $112.1 million

    the best part is they are at about 117 million dollars worth of the 112 million dollar cap figure for 2010.  about 21% over. Meaning that even while they are using the yankees formula they cannot beat the pats. http://www.nyjetscap.com/salary.html

    as for next season with only 36 player who will be under contract with the jets for next season they are already at $110,564,122 for a cap figure. meaning if they fill out the 53 man roster and have no bust signings who get cut in camp and no hold outs who want more money they have to sign 17 players for 2 million dollars or 117 k each on average. this includes not being able to resign players such as ellis, mangold, cromartie, clemens, harris, etc.  To put it llightly they are screwed.

    I would love to see the Jets not make the post-season, but I would not want the Pats to coast in week 17.  That's two weeks of not playing for your most important players. We've all seen how that works for the Colts. If the Pats don't have a bye (unlikely), I could agree with it, though.

    If they don't have a bye, I am thinking about what happened last year with Welker. He was hurt in a meangingless game and that pretty much sealed their deal.

    I have always been a proponent of resting starters if the postseason seed is not in question.  I hated that year we lost Rodney Harrison in a meaningless game.  Give the backups some game experience.  Maybe feature some dudes that could be traded in the offseason.

    The cream on the pie would be helping the phins shut the Jests out of the playoffs.  Off with Rex's head.

    On the other hand maybe we want Rex to keep his job.

    Re: hypothetically speaking

    I almost want them to make the playoffs and make it to the championship game vs NE so TB and BB can do their number on Rex again but how humiliating is that?  Not as much as not making the playoffs for a team that (thanks Nate great breakdown on cap numbers) has a bunch of names but no real substance is in bad shape going into the offseason. 

    A lot of big FAs and no $$ to pay them.

    That would mean that they would have to be able to beat Pitt/baltimore/san diego/indy/jags to reach us
