    1. a person or thing that is disabled or ineffectual

    I take issue with the notion that Garrett is made ineffectual with the lack of a contract extension right now. If the team can't play hard for a coach, regardless of contract, then that is on the coach. And in that case, he SHOULD be replaced.

    I want to see Garrett earn his extension. So far, he has not.

    If Jerry thinks he should be the head coach, then fine extend him, but damn if it goes as badly next year as many believe, then he is basically just gifting the boy wonder a few extra million to sit at home in 2015 as he will be canned.

    People misunderstand what a lame duck is. If you can earn an extension by performing, you're not a lame duck.

    Ron Rivera was a lame duck if I'm not mistaken and was totally on the hot seat at the beginning of the season. If JG can turn the team around as Rivera did, then I'm all for a Rex Ryan extension.

    Little different though because the players like rivera and many did not like chudzinski....So with him leaving and rivera hiring a new OC it kind of changed things.

    Rivera also is building a team around a young qb and again I think that was the source of the frustration there, many thought they should be getting better play out of newton and the offense. This year they did.

    Circumstances are different, but doesn't mean the team's expectations of JG are any different. JG hasn't lost the team, but he is truly on the hot seat, same as Rivera was. He has to get this team to the postseason...and to be honest, I'd hope his ability to stay isn't based on him squeaking into the playoffs either. Team needs to play well down the stretch and not get by on a weak division.

    Has watkins lost his mind? Ya lets reward a guy who has gone 8-8 three straight years, makes sense.

    At least rex ryan has accomplished something in his coaching tenure

    Just fire him now. Inconsistency is the hallmark of success. Ask Bill Gates. Ask Robert Kraft.

    He didn't give Parcells an extension because he didn't feel that over 4 years one was earned. He reached the playoffs twice.

    I don't think Garrett justifies one yet.

    Parcells quit before he could even consider offering him one.

    Watkins get off the meth. We don't give trainees that finish .500 and never make the playoffs contract extensions. Red should have been shown the door never mind extending him.

    What? Parcells didn't quit until like January or something? I remember reading that he wanted an extension with more cash but Jones didn't want to pay it.

    The team was still playing in January. I don't think he quit that long after the season. I remember Jones wanting to resign him, but he retired.

    You can see it right now, the next coach here is going to get all kinds of crap from the media. They love their little Jason.
