The mob formed at the gate armed with pitchforks and torches. It mattered little that it was just the eighth game of the season. The crowd wanted blood. They wanted Jaroslav Halak’s head on a stick.
This Sunday’s game in Kansas City means nothing to me. Michael Vick can throw five touchdown passes and the Jets can put forth their best effort of the season on both sides of the ball and it won’t mean jack.
There’s a common misconception about the Percy Harvin trade that needs to be cleared up before we can all move forward. The Jets didn’t do it to save their season.
They never cease to amaze. The Jets have always owned the patent on inventive ways to lose, but Thursday night’s defeat was their most maddening failure in some time.

Sure, it’s just one loss. But to try to take positives from Sunday’s disaster at Lambeau Field would really expose a disturbing case of denial. The Jets beat themselves and there’s just no way to spin it.
Sure, it was just one game, but it was a telling game. There’s really no way around it: This Geno Smith is not the same player that some of you have grown to mistrust.
The Bombers spent nearly $500 million in the offseason and this was the year that the Mets were finally expected to contend. Let’s just say it hasn’t worked out for either party.
Chris Johnson is going to be asked to do a lot for the Jets this season. So far, he’s shown that age is just a number and he’s capable of being what he once was.
Anyone else tired of hearing about cornerbacks? The Jets need to start doing their defense a favor by moving the ball and putting up points like a 21st century NFL team.
For the first time in a very long time, the Jets are showing conviction. They are sticking to a plan. They have inserted contingencies in case it goes awry, but their vision at QB is crystal clear.
