If you look at the big picture, Monday night’s loss — which mercifully eliminated the Jets from the AFC playoff race — was a good thing for the franchise. And the comic ineptitude made it even better.
Tim Tebow, whose role in the offense has been limited, fully participated in practice Wednesday despite a rib injury and is expected to play.
The Jets played a turnover-free game in St. Louis as they marched to a 27-13 victory over the Rams.
If the Jets don’t get to 3-3, it’s going to be hard to stay in the race for a playoff spot. Playoffs? Did I just say playoffs?
Why not go all in? Bring Terrell Owens into the circus. Ryan can wear a ringmaster outfit on the sidelines, something the Jets could market in advance of Halloween. Set up three small rings on the sideline. Owens could ride in on a white horse.
They played hard and they played better, but they fell short against the Texans on Monday night at MetLife Stadium. They were fortunate that the 5-0 Texans didn’t play their best game, but the Jets couldn’t take advantage of the opportunities that were in front of them.
Mark Sanchez finished 14 of 31 for 230 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions — but was done in by a few tipped passes.
The season just continues to spiral downward for Gang Green. Santonio Holmes will miss the rest of this season with an injured left foot, leaving the struggling New York Jets without their top offensive playmaker.
Shonn Greene is going to need to carry the ball 25 to 30 times and do for the Jets’ offense what Frank Gore does for the 49ers. It may not be pretty, but the Jets have to try to slug it out with the Niners.
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.
Considering the Jets’ numerous mistakes, it’s hard to believe they beat the inferior Miami Dolphins.
A pass caromed off Tim Tebow’s helmet, which is how things went much of the day for the Jets. Then in overtime, the ball bounced their way.
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.
“We’ve always said from Day 1 that we can do it 20 times, 40 times, 10 times, two times, whatever, but we determine that, OK?” Ryan said Tuesday.
There were plenty of people doubting Mark Sanchez. It’s just one game, but those naysayers might be having second thoughts now.
