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?
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.
Jet fans — start worrying! Any way you break this game down, it figures to be another struggle for Gang Green.
It was an embarrassing Sunday for the Jets as they stunk up MetLife Stadium.
Let’s face it: after Sunday’s 23-20 overtime victory over the Dolphins, the Jets deserve to be in first place about as much as I deserve to be the Pope.
“I’m playing Sunday.” With that simple yet strong statement, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis insisted Thursday that he would be on the field in Miami.
This week in Pittsburgh I expect the Jets to play well, but there’s no way that the Gang Green offense can duplicate what they did this past week. The Steelers’ defense will give them trouble.
Now that I have the NFL Network (thank you, Cablevision), I’ve been able to sink my teeth into all of the great programming they have to offer. Jets fans, don’t miss this show Wednesday night.
There were plenty of people doubting Mark Sanchez. It’s just one game, but those naysayers might be having second thoughts now.
The chic pick for the playoffs used to be the Jets. This year, they seem to be the butt of the joke from fans and analysts alike. On Sunday, Rex’s bunch would like to change the punchline.
If the Jets light up the MetLife Stadium scoreboard on Sept. 9, all will be forgotten. But if the offense struggles, you can bet the boo-birds will be out.
Welcome to “Backup Bowl 2012,” a matchup between an unreasonable facsimile of the Jets and an expected unreasonable facsimile of the Eagles.
Just a thought, but perhaps Rex’s starters should get a few plays against the Eagles’ backups on Thursday night in Philadelphia. Maybe then they’ll finally score a touchdown.
NFL fans know the football anthem “I’ve Been Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.” But the more appropriate title for a song leading into Sunday night’s Jets-Panthers game would be: “I’ve Been Waiting All Preseason for a Jets Touchdown.”
Embattled tackle Wayne Hunter was a no-go for the Jets family night practice Tuesday. “We had a conversation that was a personal thing and that’s the way that it will remain,” said Rex Ryan.
