My opinion is Burmistrov sitting (again) yesterday is not a reflection or any indication of Burmistrov and whatever he has done to warrant being scratched, it boils down to the team enduring success recently, and not tinkering with what was attaining the team wins.

More about the team, less about the player. Of course we will not know, but my bets and feelings are had the Jets have lost after Burmistrov being out a game, we would have seen him back in. Not because of the player he is or isn't, but because of the team results.

We could have won 5 more games in a row and I would bet or not be surprised if we did not insert Burmistrov back into the line-up. Some coaches, Noel obviously, are a believer in not tinkering with whatever is bringing the team success. He may not roll the same dice each time, but for this time, at this point in the season, that is what he felt, so that is what he did.

"The ‘now’ is very good in Chicago. The ‘now’ back in the days when they were drafting first, second and third? It wasn’t very good. But the core of fans that stuck with them, if you asked them now, I betcha they’d say it was worth it.” - Kevin Cheveldayoff
