During the late stages Sunday of what was the Jets’ latest disaster in the face of optimism, I had it out with several of my followers on Twitter. It seems I said something highly offensive for which I later apologized. But it’s not what you think.
The Jets snatched defeat from the jaws of victory on Sunday — and they managed to do it in as agonizing a fashion as the hardcore and old school fans have ever seen.
While the Jets have shown over the last two weeks that they are beginning to understand the concept of team play, I’m still very skeptical about their chances against their longtime nemesis.
Antonio Cromartie is not Darrelle Revis. Let’s just make that perfectly clear. But for the first time in his two-plus-year tenure with the Jets he appears to want to be.
For the first time in Rex Ryan’s three-plus years as head coach the Jets are in worse shape than they were before he got here. And if you have to put a face on why, Ryan’s certainly a culprit, but he’s not the kingpin.
In the aftermath of a win that sure felt like a loss, the Jets have been left with one indisputable truth: This is now Mark Sanchez’s team.
Amazingly, we’re in just Week 3 of the NFL season and the Jets are already faced with a must-win situation. That is not an exaggeration.
For three years and two games apologists have brainwashed many into believing the Jets’ defense is elite, as if finishing in the top 5 in total yards allowed a bunch of times truly defines that which is fearsome. It doesn’t.
So now we’re all in Tim Tebow’s head. That’s good to know going forward because I, for one, am dying to know how he thinks the upcoming season of “Survivor: Philippines” is going to shake out.
It would be easy for the Jets and their fans to get way ahead of themselves right now. Who can really blame them? They just spat in the eye of the intelligentsia. But they need to chill for the black and gold await — and they’re annoyed.
Contrary to popular belief, Rex Ryan will be the Jets’ head coach for a long time. It really shouldn’t even be a discussion.
Heading into the 2012 season, it was assumed the Jets would be very good defensively. But I’m here to tell you what you probably already know: This unit could very well be a lot more than that.
Cancel your breakfast plans; Thursday morning on WFAN will be must-listen radio. And the star attraction will be backup quarterback Tim Tebow, set to sit down with two of his harshest critics.
If you ultimately think statistics will tell the tale of Mark Sanchez this season, you obviously haven’t been paying attention to what the Jets have built themselves to be.
If you take into consideration the average Jets fan’s usual penchant for saying the sky is falling, Friday’s performance against the Bengals was a huge red flag. It wasn’t. In fact, it meant very little in the grand scheme of things.
